A reminder to anyone participating in the community here: One aspect of what we do, one that's very, very important to us, is supporting ALL our users in accepting, honoring and feeling supported in their unique bodies, in their gender identity, and in their sexual orientation.

So, when posting or replying, please be sure that what you post is in support of that core value, too.

For example, if you're saying something about someone else's body or its parts, check in with yourself to see if that's something you'd read and feel good about if it were said about you. If you're talking about an orientation or gender identity that isn't yours, please be careful not to disparage it in any way.

Usually, everyone here does a great job, but of late, this has come up a few times both per staff/volunteer observations and emails from other users. So, we just ask you please be mindful about it and do your best to help everyone here feel supported, safe and generally awesome.
