No personal attacks. This includes insults, inquiring into a person's appearance or passability, name-calling, and accusations of bigotry/transphobia/fetishism. Try to address ideas, not people.

The rules about language usage will not be changed.

This sub suggests using "(trans) natal male" or "(trans) natal female" when discussing issues relevant to one's assigned sex at birth.
“Trans Critical or Gender Critical” can be used in place of "TERF".
Please be mindful of how you refer to others' experiences and bodies. Language such as "delusional" or "mutilated" is against the spirit of the sub and is not permitted, as is referring to individuals' genitals in derogatory ways, ie "fuckhole".
