I’m Kate. This is my blog. By extension, it is not your blog. I welcome (and indeed encourage) visitors to participate here. (Hi!)
This is a safe space. I forbid visitors from trolling, trafficking in racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, ageist, sizeist or overtly objectionable commentary based on people’s intrinsic characteristics. Do so, and you risk having your commenting privileges revoked.
Likewise, I do not tolerate commenters who play “oppression olympics.” Nor do I suffer visitors who feel compelled to tell me what my experiences are like, or otherwise offer unsolicited “advice” over how I manage my life.
