Content Policy
Last Updated a year ago Content Policy hopes to provide a safe and welcoming space for our LGBTQ brothers, sisters, and others, as well as our allies. To ensure that, this Content Policy is enforced with this in mind, and we will always err on the side that protects those that need the most protection. is part of the fediverse, a vast network of communities that are created, run, and populated by you, users and other users on the fediverse.

This Content Policy applies to this instance only, and does not apply to any other Kbin, Lemmy, or other ActivityPub software.

Through these communities, you can post, comment, vote, discuss, learn, debate, support, and connect with people who share your interests, and we encourage you to find—or even create—your home here on

While not every community may be for you (and you may find some unrelatable or even offensive), no community should be used as a weapon. Communities should create a sense of belonging for their members, not try to diminish it for others. Likewise, everyone on the Fediverse should have an expectation of privacy and safety, so please respect the privacy and safety of others.

Every community on is defined by its users. Some of these users help manage the community as moderators. The culture of each community is shaped explicitly, by the community rules enforced by moderators, and implicitly, by the upvotes, downvotes, and discussions of its community members. Please abide by the rules of communities in which you participate and do not interfere with those in which you are not a member.

Below the rules governing each community are the platform-wide rules that apply to everyone on These rules are enforced by us, the admins, and are designed to ensure that is a safe space for our members and our users, but for the rest of the Fediverse as well.

Kbin.kgbt and its communities are only what we make of them together, and can only exist if we operate by a shared set of rules. We ask that you abide by not just the letter of these rules, but the spirit as well.

Rule 1

Assume Positive Intent. This is similar to Wikipedia’s “AGF”, or “Assume Good Faith”. But in general terms “Assume Positive Intent” is a concept that means you should assume that people have good intentions when they do things. It’s like thinking that people are trying to do the right thing even if they make mistakes. It’s important to assume positive intent because it helps us be kinder and more understanding towards others. When we assume positive intent, we give people the benefit of the doubt and try to see things from their perspective. This can help us build better relationships with others and create a more positive environment around us.

Of course not everyone will have good intentions, and for those that don’t we have the rest of our rules to guide us below.

Rule 2 is a place for creating community and belonging, not for attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people. Everyone has a right to use free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence. Communities and users that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.
