TW//super straights (obviously)
Thankfully you guys have been kind enough to add trigger warnings in discussions about Super Straights, but I feel like we could do better. So here's how we're going to do things from now on.
Depending on the severity of the content, posts discussing Super Straights will probably be either deleted or locked, regardless of whether they're pro-Super Straight or not.
The reason for this is because giving Super Straights attention is what they want, whether it's positive or negative attention. For example, posts made for the sake of saying that Super Straights are invalid will be deleted.
Posts in general, made for the sole sake saying that an identity is valid or invalid, are really not productive. They invite trolls and discourse that can easily delve into harassment.
Yes, Super Straights are not LGBT+. This is not something that needs to be said anymore, and it is not productive to say so for the sake of saying it.
If a post is made to discuss information of Super Straights (such as if they get a new flag, symbol, etc.,) these posts will probably be locked. If there is something that you want to add to the Super Straight page, or that you think people should know, message the admins on our walls.
Speaking of messaging admins, keep in mind that if you have criticisms or comments for certain decisions or practices involving the admins, please message us on our walls. Making a call-out post is counterproductive and invites drama, and can make it easy to lose sight of whatever issue you wanted to discuss in the first place.
If you have any questions, comment below or message me on my wall. Thank you.
