@cygnoir Surprising to me to hear you are considering leaving, perhaps an indication I’m not able to read people as well as I had imagined.

I would like to learn about details of what one can understand under “safe and welcoming” and what one perhaps should understand.

Upfront I want to say that although my sympathies lie with the objectives of cultural outsiders, outliers, and oddballs, I have increasing difficulty with the deformations of language being perpetrated by some in that group AND the backlash which, in turn has proponents of opposing viewpoints bathing their arguments in hyperbole and nastiness.

It’s fucked up. And been going on quite a while. In an effort to address this let’s ask,

What is safe?
What is welcoming?
