TheBabywearer is taking a strong and active stance against hatred and white supremacy. At this time we look to the examples of Ravelry and RPG.net, who have chosen to prohibit all forms of support for white supremacy. We stand with them in this effort. To quote the Ravelry team, “we cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for white supremacy.” Here is what this means for TBW:
- ALL hate speech is strictly prohibited. We will in no way tolerate any language that is hurtful, derogatory, inflammatory, pejorative or otherwise inciting of hatred. Racist, classist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, and xenophobic language choices or other hate speech will be required will be required to be edited or removed by a moderator and a warning will be issued. Microaggressions and othering are included in this. Repeated violations will result in a ban.
- ALL forms of support for hatred and white supremacy, including open support for public and/or political figures who, either by words or actions, uphold hatred and white supremacy, will be prohibited. White supremacy will not be given ANY space here at TBW. Any posts, comments, pictures, avatars or signature lines that support hatred or white supremacy will be removed and the content owner warned. Repeated violations will result in a ban.
