o/Lesbians is a space for lesbians to connect, thrive, and build a genuine lesbian community. We define lesbianism as homosexuality; a woman’s exclusive same-sex attraction to other women. Participation by non-lesbians in this circle is not allowed.
Along with our rules, we enforce the sitewide rules and guidelines.
No participation by people who are not both female and exclusively same sex attracted. Users in violation will be banned. This includes posting, commenting, and voting.
Assume good faith. Please refrain from being preemptively belligerent or defensive.
No attacks, insults, or reciprocation. If you are attacked by another user, use the report button instead of reciprocating. If you reciprocate, you will also be in violation of this rule.
No slurs or pejoratives. The words 'cis' or 'cisgender' used to refer to other women are considered slurs. Name calling, ad hominem attacks, and other language used specifically to target another user will also not be tolerated.
No bullying/ganging up on people. If the content is rule-breaking, report it instead of piling on.
Refrain from overgeneralizing your own experience onto others, or implying that what was true for you is necessarily true for all lesbians.
No criticism of sexual boundaries or relationship boundaries.
No content questioning one's lesbian orientation. Posts like 'When did you know?' are okay, but posts like 'What am I?' are not. We cannot tell you what you are. Similarly, refrain from unfounded speculation regarding the sex lives and sexuality of other women.
Gender-critical or trans-critical content lacking a lesbian focus will be removed.
No derailing or hijacking. This refers to posting a comment that is unrelated to the topic of the post, which often kills the original discussion.
No pornography. NSFW posts must be marked as such.
No selfies or other sharing of personal identifying information; no spam; and no self-promotion.
