Updated Story Codes

I have recently updated the codes to Family Feud I, II and III.

It probably would have helped if I had read the definitions here;

I saw the code "Lolita" and immediately thought about the old film by Stanley Kubrick. My story does have teenagers but they are not under 12. I really don't have any interest in telling stories with characters like that who engage in sex.

The false flags put my stories in 'filtered access' which sort of exiled them to a place where unless you know to turn on/off the flag on your account you'd never see them.

I was okay with this, because I was willing to err on the side of caution and because in my ignorance of the codes I assumed just dealing with teenagers sexuality put it in this higher category.

Until you realize that most PG-13 films about teenagers have dealt with their sexuality. (Including Stanley Kubrick's Lolita)

Whether it was the coming of age flicks of the 1980s where the teenage boy spends a summer some place and becomes a man, or the more modern films like "Easy A" or American Pie. "Stick a flute in my pussy? only at bandcamp!"

That stuff is part of our modern culture.

I believe my stories now have the appropriate codes, but I'd be willing to let you be the judge of that.
