This community is first and foremost a feminist community for men and masc people, but it is also a place to talk about men’s issues with a particular focus on intersectionality.
1. Moderators reserve complete discretion to maintain a positive atmosphere, including removing comments and submissions, and banning offenders.
2. Be civil
Disagreements should be handled with respect, cordiality, and a default presumption of good faith. Engage the idea, not the individual, and remember the human. Do not lazily paint all members of any group with the same brush, or engage in petty tribalism.
3. Be the men’s issues conversation you want to see in the world.
Be proactive in forming a productive discussion. Constructive criticism of our community is fine, but if you mainly criticize our approach, feminism, or other people's efforts to solve gender issues, your post/comment will be removed.
4. Build upon the content in the original post.
It is vital to the health of the community to make sure that we are building on the work posted and not uncritically rehashing the same reactionary ideas endlessly.
5. Posts/comments solely focused on semantics rather than concepts are unproductive and will be removed. Shitposting and low-effort comments and submissions will be removed.
6. Attack ideas, not individuals.
Comments attacking a user, directly or indirectly, are not welcome and will be removed.
7. Individuals who don't identify as men or masc are welcome to participate here.
Non-masculine perspectives are incredibly important in making sure that that the lived experiences of others are present in discussions on masculinity, but please remember that this is a space to discuss issues pertaining to men and masc individuals; be kind, open-minded, and take care that you aren't talking over men expressing their own lived experiences.
8. Slurs and hatespeech are prohibited
9. Negative stereotyping and insensitivity towards marginalized groups will not be tolerated.
10. Do not call other submitters' personal experiences into question.
11. Do not participate if you have been linked to this discussion from elsewhere.
12. Links to elsewhere on the threadiverse must promote constructive discussion of men’s issues.
Links to other threads or communities that stir up meta-drama without adding something substantial to the conversation will be removed. All comments and posts including these links will be subject to moderator discretion in order to maintain a civil, productive discussion.
