A relationship on TheComicBookLounge.com is making me uncomfortable. What should I do?

First, never agree to anything that makes you uncomfortable. Even if someone seems like a friend, they’re not a friend if they’re trying to get you to do anything against your will or best interests.

It’s hard to make a good decision when you’re upset or confused, so you should be as clear as possible in your own mind about what is and isn’t in your own interests. If you need help with this, talk to someone you trust like a close friend, family member or counselor.

  • If you receive any unwanted sexual comments or communication on TheComicBookLounge.com, the best thing you can do is remove yourself from the conversation. If it doesn’t stop immediately, you should block the person and report the abusive content to TheComicBookLounge.com.
  • If someone is asking you to share nude or sexually explicit photos of yourself on TheComicBookLounge.com, the simplest answer you can give them is, "No. It’s not allowed on TheComicBookLounge.com." Sharing nude or sexually explicit photos on TheComicBookLounge.com goes against our Community Standards. Learn more.
  • If someone is threatening to share things you want to keep private (ex: messages, photos), asking you to send them money or anything else, you should contact local law enforcement, block the person and report them. Learn more.
  • If you’re under 18 and someone’s putting pressure on you that’s sex-related, contact local law enforcement or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children using the CyberTipline at www.cybertipline.com or 1-800-843-5678. They have advisers available 24/7 to help.
  • If this person is a relative or someone in your household and you need help, contact local law enforcement, go to https://ohl.rainn.org/online or call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).

What should I do if someone dares or challenges me to do something I’m not comfortable with?

Although videos and other types of posts that mention dares, challenges or nominations don't necessarily go against TheComicBookLounge.com's Community Standards, we know that some people might feel uncomfortable in these difficult situations. If someone ever asks or nominates you on TheComicBookLounge.com to do something that you’re not comfortable with, don’t do it. There are several options for responding to these posts:

  • Untag yourself: If someone nominated you by tagging you in a post, you can untag yourself.
  • Remove something posted on your Timeline: If someone posted directly on your Timeline, you can remove the post from your Timeline.
  • Block the person who nominated or challenged you: You can block the person who nominated you so they can't tag or message you.
  • Change your settings to review tags added to your posts: Turn on tag review to review tags that other people add to your posts.
  • Change your settings to review tagged posts on your Timeline: Turn on Timeline review to manually approve posts you're tagged in before they appear on your Timeline.

What should I do if I see images on TheComicBookLounge.com of a child being physically abused or sexually exploited?

If you see images on TheComicBookLounge.com of a child being physically abused or sexually exploited, please contact your local law enforcement immediately. They may be able to identify and rescue the child. We also ask that you report the photo or video to TheComicBookLounge.com. If you don't have a TheComicBookLounge.com account or are blocked from seeing the content you want to report, you can ask a friend to help you. You'll be able to check the status of your report from the Support Inbox.

If you see images of a child being sexually exploited, we also ask that you:

  • Notify the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children using the CyberTipline: Visit www.cybertipline.com or call 1-800-843-5678.
  • Don't share, download, or comment on the content: It can be criminal to share, or send messages with, photos and videos of children being sexually abused and exploited. You won't be asked to provide a copy of the content in any report.
Images and videos of children being physically abused or sexually exploited are against TheComicBookLounge.com policies. In order to aid in the possible identification and rescue of victims of child physical abuse, we may not immediately remove this content from TheComicBookLounge.com.

However, we'll add a warning message to these posts before they can be viewed, and we won't allow anyone under the age of 18 to view the content in the first place. Once it's been confirmed that the child is safe, we'll remove images and videos of child physical abuse on behalf of the child or the child protection agency that represents them.

Seeing an image or video of a child who has been abused can be distressing. We understand that people may be affected in different ways when they view these types of images, and we want to be sure that there are resources available for further support. TheComicBookLounge.com has worked with a number of safety experts around the world to identify these resources, including social services and tips for reaching out to professionals. If you, or a child you know, have been the victim of child physical or sexual abuse, or if you've witnessed child physical or sexual abuse and are interested in resources or support services, we encourage you to consider the resources provided by these organizations:

  • The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) assists in cases of missing or exploited children throughout the world.
  • The International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) provides a list of international operational centers that work to assist in cases of missing or exploited children.
  • Child Helpline International is a global network of hotlines providing support and social services.
  • ECPAT is a global network of civil society organizations dedicated to fighting against the sexual exploitation of children.
  • INHOPE is a global network of hotlines committed to removing child sexual abuse online.
  • UNICEF defends the rights of children across 190 countries.
