Administrative Message from The Radical Idea

The Multiple Homes of The Radical Idea:

For those who don’t already know, although this is the primary home of The Radical Idea, we do have a secondary home on Tumblr at http://www.theradicalidea.tumblr.com.  The Tumblr has quotes, random facts, and excerpts of the posts found here to link back to this site.  Feel free to check it out.  We also have an occasionally-updated Twitter (I don’t really like Twitter but I sometimes do use it for feminist stuff) that you can follow if you’d like @TheRadicalIdea.

 

You can also, of course, always reach me by email at RadicalButLogical@gmail.com if you have any questions, comments, or subjects you would like to see discussed on The Radical Idea.

 

Change In Comment Policy on The Radical Idea

In the interest of letting everyone make their points, I have until now approved and let stand all of the comments made on The Radical Idea.

I love the idea of letting people say what they want and express themselves as they see fit, especially on issues they are passionate about. I do think it is extremely important to allow all sides of a debate to make their point, which is why I allow comments that contradict and challenge my own points of view to be posted.

However, in the interest of making sure that this blog remains a safe and pleasant forum for discussion and debate, and to make sure that it remains a place where people can explore feminism without being attacked (since feminism is frequently attacked, especially over the internet), I will now be more actively moderating all comments and discussions that occur on this blog.

So that said, the following are not going to be permitted to be posted on this blog from here on in: harsh offensive ad hominem attacks, direct attacks on feminism or feminists, comments meant to provoke other readers into drawn-out angry comment wars, and hate speech*.

I don’t really like the idea of having to moderate like this but I think it is important to keep The Radical Idea a forum for civil discussion of the issues, rather than a battlefield for people on opposing sides of current debates.

*Anyone deemed to be including hate speech in their comments is going to be barred from commenting on The Radical Idea
