|About:||Like many other rage communities, this is where members and allies of the queer community can get their rage on about discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Vent your rage about the continuing ignorance displayed throughout the world regarding gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.|
Please note that while some may find the word queer offensive, it is used in this instance in a form of reclamation and inclusivity.
1. Safe Space
This community is a safe space for people to vent about the frustrations of continuing ignorance and bigotry perpetrated against queer folk throughout the world. This is not a debate community. We're not here to question the validity of other members' rages. If it pisses them off, this is their space to vent about it. If you think their rage is invalid, too bad. Keep it to yourself or at the very least keep it to your own journal.
While anyone is welcome to join this community regardless of sexuality or orientation, this safe space rule does not encompass rants against anyone. While this is a themed community for queer rage, discrimination against any minority group will not be tolerated here. There will be no ableism, no sexism, no genderism, no racism, no classism, etc. Members guilty of these -isms in a rage will first be warned and asked to edit their post. Repeat offenders will be banned.
Posting and commenting are members only. Long posts go behind a cut. Locked posts are not to be quoted or paraphrased elsewhere on IJ in any way shape or form. They're locked for a reason.
Strong language and posts with possible triggering language should go behind a cut with an appropriate warning. When in doubt err on the side of caution.
Comments are to remain enabled and unscreened no matter what. Moderators exist for a reason. Do not delete comments. First offense gets a warning. Second offense gets a one week ban from the community. Third offense gets a permanent ban from the community.
3. Members and Moderators
For the time being membership is open. However, trolls happen, and if they happen too often, membership will change to moderated. Let's try to keep things open for as long as possible.
At the moment, I, agent_alpo am the only moderator. If you have an issue, contact me via e-mail. DO NOT contact me on my personal journal. Do not ask to be a moderator. If the need for moderators arises, I will find more moderators, they will not find me.
Don't argue with moderators in comment threads. If you receive a warning and think it's unfair, continue the discussion through e-mail. Continued arguing through comments will result in comments in that particular thread being frozen.
Obey the InsaneJournal Terms of Service.
If you have any ideas to add to the community's interests lists (or think something should be removed from that list), let me know through e-mail.
And that's it! Rage on!
