Content should be about detransition or of direct interest to detransitioners.

Honor "DETRANS REPLIES ONLY"-flaired posts.

Posts & Comments

Users may flair posts to indicate the seek only replies from detransitioners/desisters. If you've not yourself sought detransition medically or socially, please give space here.

Don't promote cross-sex hormones or surgery.

Posts & Comments

Cross-sex hormones and surgery affect the body in ways that are not fully understood nor easily reversed. Many detransitioners felt pressure to pursue HRT and/or surgery in transition. Because this is a detransition-focused sub, advising others to start, continue, or pursue further medical transition is not permitted here. Those with severe distress are advised to seek professional opinions.

Anti-detrans activism and tropes are unwelcome.

Posts & Comments

This space puts detransitioners' rights, needs, and interests first. Detransitioners have for years experienced a culture of detransphobia, victim-blaming, and censorship. Users who belittle or blame us for our existence or experiences as detransitioners, users with a history of doing so anywhere online, and moderators of anti–detrans spaces may be banned swiftly, long-term, or permanently.

Don't label any other user here.

Posts & Comments

We'll each see words we like and dislike. Moderators can't limit word choice practically nor without bias. Terminology applied to self and theory are permitted. Language applied to other users must be considerate of any views they hold. Even if you think it's a neutral or positive word, do not apply your choice of terminology to anyone else here. You can describe yourself and concepts using any words you wish.

Don't antagonize any other user here.

Debate civilly. Avoid character attacks. Keep conversations positive or at least neutral and fair. Address action more than actors. Say "I" more than "you".

No bigotry toward any born-into group.
