Rule #2 is possibly our most important one:

Be respectful. Everyone should feel welcome here.

Learn to disagree without being rude or disrespectful.

It can be difficult sometimes, since western social media thrives on collective outrage, and they knowingly ingrain this into us for years. But please do adhere to this rule, and it will make this place much more enjoyable.

We will not hesitate to issue temp bans (usually a day or two) for those who make everyone’s experience unpleasant.Hit the report button if you see this behavior.

    none of how rude something you’ve said is or whether someone perceives something you’ve said as gendered is for you to decide. that’s all something that depends on the other person and their experiences in the world. being polite necessarily means that you have to take into account what other people are likely to think of what you’ve said. I don’t know how to explain this any more clearly. What are you not understanding here?
