Flyover Feminism is a social justice space concerned with the amplification of marginalized voices.  To that end, commenters are asked to create a culture of positive engagement in which both people and ideas are uplifted.  We are not interested in flamewars and devil’s advocacy and tearing each other down for imperfect compliance to an imaginary feminist ideal.

Here, we understand that feminism and womanism mean different things to different practitioners.  Your choice may not be the same as mine, and different does not mean less than. We are committed to meaningful discussions of intersectionality, and oppressions within feminism.  We are also committed to meaningful inclusivity.

Our commenters must be committed to these ideas, too.  In practice, that means that commenters may not use sexist, racist, homophobic, trans*phobic, ableist, ageist, sizeist, classist, or other marginalizing language and imagery in this space.  Also off-limits: Hate speech, slurs, threats, rape apologia, shit-stirring, concern trolling, derailing, playing the Oppression Olympics, sockpuppeting, silencing tactics, accusations of bad faith, using people’s personal aspects or experience against them, or any other behavior that could generally be filed under the heading of pointless belligerence.

Disagreement is expected and welcome, but you are kindly requested to find a way to disagree without being an ass about it.

Go forth and type!
