FAQ's Regarding FBH6 Sci-Fi theme

I've been asked several times now what would be considered 'sci-fi'. The simple answer is science and fantasy. The long answer can be found on Wikipedia, I've linked the subgenre's below so you can look through and get clarification, inspiration and get the juices flowing!

Via Wikipedia, the definitions are as follows:

Science fiction is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginative content such as futuristic settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, faster than light travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life.

Categories of sci-fi are as follows:

Hard science fiction, or "hard SF", is characterized by rigorous attention to accurate detail in the natural sciences, especially physics, astrophysics, and chemistry, or on accurately depicting worlds that more advanced technology may make possible.

The description "soft" science fiction may describe works based on social sciences such as psychology, economics, political science, sociology, and anthropology.

    Femboy Hunt creator rules =UPDATED Nov 1=

    ▨ ▨ Femboy Hunt Creator Rules ▨ ▨

    Here are the rules for creators. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Taki Kujisawa via notecard. You can also leave notecards at the Main Event Headquarters on the NOP~ Events sim.

    ▨ If your item has boob shading or female genitalia, you MUST put this on your ad.  This is an Alternate Gender hunt, not all hunters have breasts but still want pretty, effeminate clothing. We want to make sure hunters know exactly what they are getting. If you are creating a mesh formal dress, and it has boob shaping, be sure to put text on the picture/ad stating "This item has female characteristics."

    ▨ Items for all genders or lack there-of are welcome, but all items with boob shading must be labeled in the hunt ad.

    ▨ Please stick to the theme. If you offer a tattoo of snowflakes, and the theme is bubblegum, this does not suit the theme and you will be asked to offer another =NEW= item or be removed from the hunt.

    ▨ Your gifts cannot be resells, Business in a box, copies or copybotted items of others creations. They must be YOUR OWN creation, and they must be a new item, or a new version of an old item. Use of templates and creator kits is permitted, but the item cannot be right out of the box, it must be customized and a new creation. If the items are not made by you, they will not be accepted. If you make mesh clothes from builder kits, etc, then make sure to customize them. Putting another creators item as is in the hunt is NOT PERMITTED. Only rigged mesh items will be permitted to have another creators name on them other than yours.

    ▨ PICS/ADS OF ITEMS ARE REQUIRED. This is not a free hunt, so you must give us a pic to post on the blog for hunters. You MUST send in your own picture/ad of the item you are creating. If you do not, you will not be included in the promotions. We will not make your ads for you, and pictures/ads of the items ARE REQUIRED.

    ▨ Any rating is welcome on items, but be tasteful and have fun! ❤

    ▨ NO CHILDREN'S STORES OR ITEMS ACCEPTED.

    ▨ If you don't understand something, please ask!

    Please use this link as reference if you aren't sure what an 'alternate gender' is.

    *This list has been created from feedback from hunters in previous events. All items at the event are subject to minimum quality standards at the discretion of hunt coordinators.

    Thank You,

    =What is a Femboy? Trap? Huh?=

    We've been asked about this a lot during our events, so we've decided to post this here permanently for those who are not familiar with what a femboy, androgyn, trap or any other person of alternate gender is, here are some examples and explanations. This is for educational purposes only!

    Three notes:
    1- 'Gender queer' is a catch all for anyone not strictly male or female, so everyone here can be identified as such.
    2- Many of these overlap and blur into others, no one is a 'perfect' example of just one thing as we are all unique, have different styles and cannot be stuffed into a neat little box ^_^
    3- All these definitions are in the simplest terms possible and are not all encompassing of each. We put them in these terms so everyone can understand them.

    *Femboys are males who are more effeminate, sometimes in their mannerisms, physical body, or dress, often blurring the line between male and female. (Note: Femboys are NOT twinks.)

    --http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lqv61ngXmE1qbd42jo1_500.jpg

    *At first glance, an Androgyn's physical gender is not obvious or obviously defined.

    --http://img.izismile.com/img/img5/20120113/640/transgender_models_640_01.jpg

    *Traps can be male or female, but they pass as the opposite so well it's a surprise when you find out they aren't.

    --http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_maxflbXz0r1rd1skgo1_500.jpg

    *Transgenders are NOT traps, they are mentally and/or physically the gender they identify with, regardless of whether their physical matches their mental identity.

    *A person of Alternate Gender (also known as genderqueer) is anyone not strictly male or female as defined by society. This can be someone who cross dresses, is a trap, femboy, androgyn, futa, shemale, sissy, transgender, etc.

    --http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvhk5m52Qe1ql9ilao1_500.jpg

    *A sissy is a male who adopts hyper-feminine behaviors, cross dresses and engages in stereotypical "feminine" activities, including taking on the "submissive female" role in a relationship. (Not all sissies are transgender.)

    --http://www.flickr.com/photos/22979184@N05/4117407921/

    *A Tgirl looks exactly like every other girl, but has a little extra down below... usually a lot extra, actually, and has large breasts.

    *Futa is short for futanari, which, in the hentai community, is a dick girl. A being that has the body of a female and the genitalia of a stallion and extremely large breasts.

    *A ladyboy is a male who naturally has all the attributes of a woman except for the plumbing. Some ladyboys do not need surgery or makeup to look like a woman, nor is there a need to try and sound like a woman as it is all natural for them. Some are considered transgender and can be taking hormones or had breast augmentation to create a more feminine body.

    Please note, sexual preference has nothing to do with gender identity. Femboys, traps, androgyns, transgenders and all other forms of alternate genders can be any sexual orientation, regardless of how they dress or appear outwardly.

    I have also linked to blogs, but be warned, some pics are graphic and Adult in nature. The links to individual pictures we've supplied are all artistic and work safe ^_^v

    FEMBOY HUNT FAQ's!

    We've been receiving a lot of questions from hunters and creators alike, so we'll be compiling them here in one place for everyone to read! =D If you have a question that isn't here, contact Taki Kujisawa in-world~

    1- What am I looking for? 
    --This is what you are looking for. It can be any size, any color and there may be decoys!

    2- If it's the 'femboy hunt', then why are futa, ladybois, andro and whatever else still included? 
    --The reason we accept stores that cater to all non-binary and alternate genders is because there isn't enough out there for all of us who do not restrict our imaginations, self expression, fashion, and gender. SL, just like RL is mostly male/female, and for us to create a strong community and acceptance we must all work together. That and on any given day the Femboy Hunt creator could be any gender, species or whatnot they choose, and sees no point in restricting self expression.

    3- What about furry femboys? 
    --A femboy is a femboy, regardless of species! We want everyone to participate, fuzzy or not! =D

    4- Can sissies and sissie stores join the hunt?
     --Yes! We'd love to have you participate!

    5- I don't have an in-world store, can I still join the hunt? How will it work?
    --Marketplace stores are encouraged to join also! Instead of an LM or SLURL to your in-world store, we would have a link to your MP instead. There will be no direct linking to the item, so hunters have to 'hunt' on your MP for it! The item will be set for 2$L the same as the in-world boxes. 

    6-  Why isn't the hunt free? 
    --The purpose of the Femboy Hunt is to introduce hunters to the different store, sims and clubs that support the theme and the community it represents and allow them to try items from the stores for a low cost.

    7- My shop doesn't cater to femboys/traps/etc specifically, but I make cute unisex clothes/jewelry/shoes/other accessories.
    --Ok! We all need and love nice clothes and jewelry, so why not register?
