Therian Guide is not a "safe space" UwU
Hello,

I would just like to resolve this misunderstanding that some people have... Therian Guide is not a "safe space".

You can find more detailed explanations on this very forum, but let me clarify:

I do not say this out of malice. Therian Guide aspires to be a support group for all Therians and Therians are all kinds of people. There is no chance that everyone on TG will agree on something. We have no desire to enforce single-mindedness.

As per the rules we ask that everyone treat each-other with respect, but a part of that respect is accepting that views may differ and that everyone can be wrong. Therefore, members are free to call out bullshit if they see it. We encourage people with different views to discuss them in a civil manner if they can, because... this is what the forums and chats are for. And we can learn things and correct mistaken beliefs if we talk about them.

If you don't want your views challenged, Therian Guide might not be a place for you.

If you can't handle stuff you say, not being accepted on your word alone, you're gonna have a bad time.

We expect from our members to behave in ways that are considered acceptable in society at large. We do believe that this standard should apply to any therian community.

All that said, we are of course accommodating to the needs of therians and younger people in general. If you're honest with us, TG does feel like a bit of a family.

LP,
Dusty

Most problems are man-made.

To be honest, I don't mind my words being challenged. I do get a bit anxious when it comes to debate, but if someone has different views to me and wishes to present them, I have absolutely no problem with that, and often I'll even encourage it. I'm not a fan of communities with "hive mind" ideals, and if you make a mistake, you're the devil himself haha. Some people just have different view points, and that's not my place to tell them they're wrong.

I'd say the only time I'd be concerned with someone's "opinions" is if it challenges basic human rights, especially when it comes to race, sexuality, gender, etc. But that's my view. Usually when that happens I tend to step back and leave that topic to itself as I don't like to cause a scene.

I like the way that people have freedom for their own views and opinions. Sometimes things get a bit heated but it works out in the end. It's nice not to have others' opinions forced into your own speech.


I'm Bubbles. I'm what's called a Pup Representative. If you have anything you'd like to talk about that doesn't seem important enough to report to staff, tell me instead and I'll give you some advice and a helping hand.
