    Discrimination on a kid's site

     

    In a Club Penguin Fanon Wiki where kids to young adults are encouraged to let ideas run free, there are several users wanting to put an end to such freedom of speech over their own personal viewpoint on what they see or believe in.

     

    Due to a self-proclaimed ruler of the wiki, LGBT, Muslim, and other users in agreement with their views are getting kicked and banned for expressing their view point on their personal user page, where they are supposed to talk about themselves for other users to know about them.

     

    The two main offenders of this are Swiss_Ninja and TurtleShroom, the most serious of all being TurtleShroom, as they were the one leading Swiss_Ninja and the others down a path of semi-theocratic rule, in which all policies were rewritten based on his Christian beliefs.

     

    When asked about this incident, the Club Penguin Wiki Network simply said that they shall not be doing anything about it due to issues within the community. This left many users upset over this, and caused some others to speak out on it.

     

    "I feel that it's discriminatory for users to be treated like this" says Wonderweez, admin there. "but we can't do anything because those two are the proclaimed kings."

     

    The Club Penguin Fanon Wiki is a wiki that allows user to write fan-created content based off the smashing hit game Club Penguin, owned by Disney. Sister wikis include the Club Penguin Wiki and the Club Penguin Shops Wiki.

    A petition has started for the removal of these two users, which can be found here on chang.org:
