Commenting Policy (Read This Before Commenting)

Posted on

Well, it seems that some people are having trouble hitting the About Pepper and Paprika page, so, it’s apparently time to make it clearer.


To reiterate, this is not a 101 space. We will not engage in debate about whether sexism, patriarchy, or rape culture exist.

For answer to some common questions you may have about Feminism 101, please visit this handy guide.

We will also not engage in debate about abortion.

To repeat what is already on the about page:

Racism, sexism, classism, transphobia, homophobia and xenophobia will not be tolerated. No Rape jokes, no Domestic Violence jokes, no Fat-phobic language, no triggering language, no body-snarking, no religious intolerance,  no exceptions. This will get your comment blocked the first time, and any subsequent trolling earns you a ban.

Also, since it apparently needs to be said again

Do not mansplain.

Do not engage in “WHAT ABOUT THE MEEEEEEEEENNNZZZZZ!!?1?!?!!?111?!?!1?!” comments. When we want to talk about men, we will do so. Until then, they are not the center of the universe in which this blog exists.

Do not derail, we ask that you stay on topic.

For example, if we are talking about car crashes, please do not swoop in and demand that we address accidents that happen to people riding ostriches (i.e. in a general post about rape, don’t demand that we address men who are raped by women as the most important central issue in rape culture evar. Just don’t)

Now, here  are some things we love to see, and hope for gleefully every time we post:

Feel free to disagree with us about the topic at hand, as long as you are addressing the topic itself, and not derailing.

Feel free to link to interesting blogs or articles about the topic being discussed.

Please, feel free to bring the snark. We are not fluffy bunny feminists.

And now, a picture of the fluffy bunnies that we aren’t
