"It has been suggested that we are too PC in our moderation that we thus "suck the fun out of free discussion." The reality is there are plenty of spaces on the web where people can have fun with their casual racism, sexism, misogyny, homophobia, etc, while discussing their favourite comics. There are, however, very few spaces on the web where more marginalised individuals can openly discuss issues that affect them personally as comic readers without being personally attacked and ridiculed by other (typically less aware) users. Neither SD nor NSD are spaces where things like casual racism are tolerated and we will always take the side of the person feeling threatened by another user's oppressive and/or discriminatory behaviour."

I LIKE that this community makes an effort to make you THINK about how your language affects others. It's the first step to self-awareness and changing your stick to become a better person.

Plus, the opinion of people who use the phrase "too PC" is a rather worthless currency, since it usually means, "what do you mean, I should pay attention to what I'm doing onto others? But that's HAAAAAARD!"

Good on you for not backing out of that one.


(BTW, I'm delurking. I'm booksforlunch from the old livejournal-comm, long, long ago.)
