Some ground rules.

These are set and enforced by the moderators.

  1. We have a zero-tolerance policy against bigoted behavior. This especially includes, but is not limited to racism, sexism, xenophobia, antisemitism, islamophobia, transphobia and ableism.
  2. Do not explicitly endorse systems of oppression as a remedy to the same. This especially applies to the myth of meritocracy.
  3. Do not argue for the existence or relevance of reverse-racism or reverse-sexism. Racism and sexism are deep structural issues with culture and not the expression of single persons.
  4. Make use of the Content Warning (CW) feature in Mastodon extensively. While this is a requirement for any adult/disturbing content, particularly involving discussion about prohibited content, we highly encourage using it as a general disclaimer regarding the content of your post.
