Please Read Before Commenting

The blog is as much of a SAFE SPACE as I can muster. This means that in order for people to feel comfortable commenting here, I do not allow:

  • Hate language – this includes -ist slurs and general disrespect using some essential part of a person’s character.
  • Casual use of the word rape, or jokes about the subject.
  • Trolling or flaming.
  • Harassment or stalking.

This is a blog that is run by a feminist and is considered a gaming nerd/feminist friendly place. If you are unaware of basic social justice concepts such as sexism, racism, ableism and homo/transphobia, as well as “Privilege”, you might want to peruse Google before coming to the comment box. Some good reading on feminist concepts includes:

Understanding (especially if you are male-identified) that some of my views, as well as other commenters, might be coming from a different space socially than you can go a long way. Derailing someone’s argument about something that affects them personally is not seen as polite, same with demanding education from someone who is different than you.

Overall, people who wish to comment here should respect the blog, respect other people commenting and try to come to the table with an open mind. There’s always things to be learned and shared.
