Please boost if your account is safe for non-binary people.
@EpicMiscreant All day. 💯
@somarasu Awesome! You rock.
ONE OF US!
ONE OF US!
ONE OF US!
@EpicMiscreant Hmmm, I don't know
I mean, I own this instance, and
I'd say, probably?
@EpicMiscreant How can I tell whether my account is safe for non-binary people or not?
@Kasil Generally, if you're not posting anything offensive towards or targeting in particular (in this case) non-binary folks then it can be inferred that your account might be safe. Another way to tell is if your own opinions are dismissive of non-binary identities (as in you believe there are only two genders) or gate-keep, then your account might not be safe after all.
I put this out there to see who would boost it so I could find folks to chat with or befriend.
@EpicMiscreant Do you mean that the content is not offensive to these groups or what is the definition of safe here?
@marble Yes, it does refer to content that is not offensive. It also refers to whether you gate-keep or erase non-binary identities by believing that there are only two genders.
@MacLemon Your response tells me what I wanted to know. My posting this was a test to see who would boost it so that I could find like-minded folks to talk to or befriend.
@EpicMiscreant hmmm, I would think yes but how can I be sure? Who am I to judge?
@narF I think if you don't post offensive things targeting non-binary identities, and you aren't gate-keeping/erasing non-binary people then your account is likely safe.
@EpicMiscreant I like to think that I don't, and I hope that reality matches with what I think.
In the end, I guess it all fall back on good intentions + actions taken if a mistake happens.
In general, I try to be an ally, but I've read so many stories of "allies" who caused more harm than helped...
@narF That tells me all I need to know. You're honest, you are striving to be open and helpful, and you are making the effort and hold yourself accountable. All very good things. 👍 👍
I can't guarantee that. If someone is nonbinary and is a huge asshole, I couldn't care less about them and we probably wouldn't be good friends, but if they're really interesting, then surely we'd get along just fine! ✌️
That rule kind of applies to everyone I meet. The rules don't change for someone's identity, religion, or political stance. 👌 💖
@EpicMiscreant what do you Nena with „Safe“?
@EpicMiscreant I keep wanting to boost this! But I don’t know and don’t wanna lead people on. I think mine is, but is there something in particular you have in mind?
@rafu As long as you're not posting anything negative or erasing non-binary existence by suggesting there are only two genders, then you would be considered safe.
@EpicMiscreant The thought there are only two of whatever sounds ridiculous to me nowadays.
@EpicMiscreant I am in fact a nonbinary people, so yes. tis safe here.
@EpicMiscreant This is a very handy list of NB positive peeps, nice!
@EpicMiscreant I think it is but I'm too afraid to ever hurt any enby person to say it's safe ;__;
But I do hope it's safe. It's just not up to me to decide, in my opinion.
I boosted. Don't know if it is, not my place to say, but I try my best to be the best person possible
@EpicMiscreant My account is not safe for anyone. Bring weaponry.
@EpicMiscreant Out of interest, is there anything that makes an account unsafe besides people who intentionally post homophobe content or alike?
@EpicMiscreant As an enby, I certainly hope so!
@EpicMiscreant Very much so!
@EpicMiscreant I'm also NB, so this account is safe.
@EpicMiscreant ...am trying. Hope you'll feel cool :-)
@EpicMiscreant if its not, its definitely safe to call me out.
@EpicMiscreant I do try my best, I don't think I've said anything that's unintentionally insensitive, I'm supporting everyone's sexuality/description etc. And I try to be as inclusive as I can :) Might be that I am saying the wrong thing here or there, but I'm willing to learn, and think that everyone deserves the same amount of respect and love :)
@EpicMiscreant I have a very dear enby friend whom I love and admire. I have learned some things thanks to them and I want to be better.
