Welcome to the HerWar Community! We’re so glad you’re here. Our goal is to provide space for open discussion of current events, politics, and ideas. To make this work we are laying out guidelines for use of our blog comments, chatroom, and forum. While we will treat each issue on a case by case basis here are our expectations for conduct.

  1. Criticize ideas and actions. Don’t get personal. Be respectful.
  2. The use of racist, gendered, anti-LGBTQ+, xenophobic, Islamophobic, ableist, or otherwise bigoted slurs is strictly prohibited.
  3. Avoid tone policing, name calling, and ad-hominem attacks.
  4. All participants are expected to add value to the conversation. Attempts to derail productive conversations are prohibited
  5. We are pro-fact. Expect to be asked to cite your sources and please be prepared to do so.
  6. Harassment or bullying of other members of the community is not permitted. This includes but is not limited to:
    1. Sharing personal information of other members.
    2. Following members outside of HerWar for the purposes of harassing them either on social media or in person.
    3. Any actions or statements that can be perceived to be intended to threaten or intimidate.
  7. Be aware of the conversations you’ve joined. Do not attempt to center yourself in conversations about others.
  8. No self-promotion. Do not spam your own products and services to our members. If you would like to promote your business through HerWar, please contact herwarmedia@gmail.com to discuss.
  9. Most importantly, be respectful, remain open-minded, and listen.
