Thanks for the recommendation.
While I am a pretty fervent believer in not making guidelines too specific (IME rules-lawyering increases the more complex guidelines are) I also recognize there has been an increase in transphobic remarks on a lot of mainstream sites, and we would very much hate to see that travel here.
Worse (and disappointingly so), there seems to be a lot more attention to the long-existing schism between individual members of the broader LGBTQ+ community and transgender community members. We strongly support the unity and equality of that entire community. We are happy to explicitly say that this community is welcome, including its’ transgender members.
Thanks again for the suggestion, I will go ahead and add it.
Also, a small note: while indeed awesome folks, the Discourse team is not involved in moderation or community policy on the BBS. However, their philosophies closely align with ours, which is a large part of why the Discourse software is such a great fit for our group of Happy Mutants.
