The Terms of Service tell all FTM Now users how to act and submit content when using the site at large, and we definitely enforce those here! These are our easy to follow rules specifically for chat. Remember, having your voice heard here on FTM Now is a privilege, and we hope you will use it wisely!
Giving constructive feedback is good. Being unnecessarily mean isn’t what we do here. Make sure you take the time to evaluate which you are doing before you post.
Respect other humans
We know our visitors are fine specimens of humanity. Complimenting them is good. Sexually objectifying, creeping on, describing violent actions toward, describing your physical reactions to, or otherwise dehumanizing them is not.
We want this channel to be a safe and welcoming place for everyone. Don't do anything that might make someone feel like they don't belong. This includes but is not limited to generalizations of types of people, hate speech, or discriminatory language based on gender, religion, ethnicity, sex or socioeconomic background. This also covers trans specific issues. There is no gatekeeping here or any belief in what is "trans enough". Every transition and transmasculine person is valid and unique. Respect that!
Keep it PG-13
Keep in mind that FTM Now is an all ages site. Although some aspects of transition can involve sexuality, please be respectful of our younger visitors. This is also not a dating app! If you find the love of your life here, congratulations and invite us to the wedding, but keep private conversations private in your DM's.
Listen to the administrative and moderation team
Our admins and mods are in place because we trust their judgement. Remember that these rules exist not only to the letter, but in spirit. If our mods feel like you have violated or circumvented even the intention of these rules, you may face disciplinary action. Follow the instructions of mods, and communicate with them with professionalism about any concerns. Please not that all conversations, including private messages, are logged. If a complaint is logged, we can bring the receipts. If you have any concerns or see someone breaking these rules, please contact CorwinK either in chat or by email at CorwinK@FTMNow.com.
