I welcome all comments and discussion, so long as it remains respectful. It is very difficult to be respectful, and I recognize this. Indeed, I am a flawed human, as we all are, and I will probably fail to be respectful now and again. I will attempt to give commentators the benefit of any doubt and allow explanation before banning a comment. But, once comments become abusive, then they will get banned. Below I have copied a list of resources that should help in being respectful to one another. This list will evolve as I go.
Avoid Ableist Language
- FWD/Forward (Feminists with Disabilities) for a way forward has an ongoing series on Ableist language
- The R-Word Counter
Avoid Sexist Language
- The American Philosophical Association has a useful “Guidelines for Non-Sexist Use of Language“
