Comments Policy

Recently there have been some comments left on various posts, which I have had to delete without publishing: not because the tone and language used have clearly been employed to try and belittle me (although that was their intent), but because the language used has put at risk my desire to make this a ‘safe’ space.

It means that, with regret, I have to issue a comments policy – something which I had hoped to avoid.

Therefore, please be aware that if you employ language which is racist, sexist, misogynist, transphobic, queer phobic, homophobic, abelist or victim blaming: your comment will be deleted immediately. The naming of rape victims will be immediately reported to the relevant authorities, and the dead naming of transgender women and men will not be tolerated.

I am happy to discuss differing ideas and opinions – but in a respectful fashion.

Thank you.
