1: This is not a trans only space.Â I welcome — even encourage — cis people to read and learn more about [trans] gay guys.Â Cis people can read, comment, and otherwise engage with the blog the same way trans people can.Â Actually, I value what little input I get from cis gay guys who’ve dated trans gay guys.Â It’s rare that we can find communities like straight trans men and their cis partners have.
2: I flat out will not tolerate anti-cis bias.Â Just like I can’t help being born trans, they can’t help being born cis.Â Yes, sometimes a cis person will make a stupid comment or not know the right word for something.Â That is no reason to be an asshole.Â Everyone makes mistakes, just correct it (politely) and move on.
3: I don’t base the entire blog around not offending anyone.Â I don’t nitpick every single word and argue over the semantics rather than the point.Â If you’re the type of person who enjoys doing such things I suggest leaving.Â You’ll only get your undies in a twist and I’m not likely to be interested enough to sort you out.
4: I try to avoid discussing things that I have no experience with.Â This means you won’t hear much about trans women or genderqueer identified people on here except as they concern trans men.Â Hell, you’re not even going to read much about straight trans guys or masculine trans guys because the blog is largely for (and entirely by) gay, effeminate men who happen to be trans.Â If that bothers you you can start your own blog.Â This one is mine.
5: You don’t have to read this.Â Honestly people, this is the very basis of free speech.Â I have a right to say what I wish and you have a right to ignore me.Â You also have a right to argue with me, but if you do so in a way that is hateful I can — and will — pretend you don’t exist.Â I don’t mind disagreement, it often helps me clarify my own views, I only ask that everyone be respectful as they debate.Â We may still disagree, that’s one of the cool things about living in a free society, but with any luck we’ll at least come away with a better understanding of each other’s opinion.
