Fabulous Femininities is based on mutual respect and was designed to be a welcoming space for the burlesque communities to come together to share ideas, tell stories together and be creative.

To make sure all our users feel safe and comfortable on Fabulous Femininities we ask that you abide by a few simple rules. By following these basic rules we can help ensure that we treat everyone equally, respect their views and develop a community where all users feel valued and protected.

Fabulous Femininities is moderated and there are report abuse buttons on every page, but we really want to avoid having to use them and hope that we can trust each other to work responsibly.

Fabulous Femininities is a non-profit trans inclusive research project. Our project understands femininity as something anyone can express. The project team do not tolerate transphobia in any shape or form, this includes misgendering, invalidating trans identities or the framing of trans rights as incompatible with feminism.

A few simple rules

  1. You must be over 18.
  2. Please treat people as you would like to be treated yourself- respect their views and they will respect yours.
  3. If you disagree, do so in a friendly and supportive manner. There’s no place for trolls here.
  4. Don’t be sexist, transphobic, homophobic, classist, racist, ableist, xenophobic etc. Don’t assume a causal connection between bodies and identities. If you’re challenged in relation to this, be mindful that the challenge is about effects of your words/actions, not about your intentions.
  5. Consent is essential. Think about who you include in your stories and don’t identify anyone who is not able to give consent. Do not post images of anyone under 18. Always respect the privacy of others.
  6. Please don’t bully or harass people on this site.
  7. Burlesque is about embracing our bodies, but please do not post images or videos that are violently or sexually explicit (where what is depicted would not be seen at a burlesque show).
  8. This is your site and your community. If you see something that breaks any of these rules, please report it to us.
  9. Be a positive and supportive member. Take an active interest in the work of others.
  10. Make sure you provide acknowledgements for material you post - especially if it isn’t yours. A web link is fine!
  11. Have fun!

The legal stuff
