  • This is an explicitly welcoming space. You'll encounter people who think or communicate in fundamentally different ways as you. If there's friction, it's necessary to work to reach a shared understanding and not assume malice, with the expectation that the same would be done for you.

  • Sometimes, different people will have different needs, requiring you to be accommodating. This can be a visible thing such as a disability — understanding that sentences may have to be repeated if someone is hard of hearing — but oftentimes is not. Accommodating for others is powerful, as you will be accommodated for as well.

  • Absolutely no bigotry

  • Be aware of other peoples' boundaries. If you're unsure whether saying something might make someone else uncomfortable, ask. This goes double for sexual comments. Harassment will not be tolerated.

  • It isn't hard to distinguish between someone who is being respectful, but has unintentionally hurt somebody, and someone who is being nasty. If you are being respectful, you will never feel like you are walking on eggshells. If you aren't, you won't be walking very long.
