Commenting is heartily encouraged! Healthy debate is welcome. Respectfully disagreeing is never a problem. Just bear in mind that this is my space. If you want “free speech” feel free to get your own blog.
This is a feminist blog. It is not necessarily a ‘safe space’ at all times for all people but I do have the usual basic expectations. This means that comments which include any of the following may be edited or deleted: language that is racist, ableist or sexist; attacks on people on the grounds of their sexuality or gender; language or attitudes which are sizeist or belittle people on the basis of their appearance. It’s also a fat acceptance blog, so weight loss suggestions or admonishments about how unhealthy it is to be fat are neither necessary nor welcome. Just so you know. (New readers are encouraged to read this first).
All first-time commenters are held in moderation, so if your comment doesn’t appear right away don’t worry, I’ll get to it.
Swearing is permitted encouraged. Using a whole lot of abbreviations and exclamation marks in the manner of OMFG ROTFLMAO!!!!! is not. In the slightest. Please spare me.
Linking to pertinent articles or posts as part of your comment is generally fine. Sometimes comments with links are sent straight to spam – if you think that’s happened to yours let me know. Any queries about moderation can be directed to me via email or twitter (check the About page for contact details.)
Trolls are subject to derision, humiliation, angry outbursts or banning and the desert of deletion. Whichever takes my fancy.
