Comments policy

First of all, I welcome your comments!

Please be aware that I’m committed to maintaining this as a space that is anti-oppressive, including but not limited to: racism, sexism and misogyny including transmisogyny, transphobia, homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia, classism, sizeism, ageism, ableism, oppression of sexual assault survivors, and of course femmephobia. I love comments but will delete or edit ones that are oppressive in nature. There will be no backtalk on this subject. For a place where such comments are accepted and privilege goes unchecked, please look somewhere else, like the world. </bossy>

Conversely, I am trying to stay aware of the privilege I experience as a white, cissexual, able-bodied male Anglophone of middle-class origins living in Canada. Should I express myself in a way that is oppressive, I would appreciate being called on it.
