“In All Seriousness” Thread — 10/23/2018

Hello, lovely people.

Halloween is next week! Is anyone dressing up? Staying home eating candy? Whatever you do, hopefully you have a fun and scary (but only in a good way) night.

Also, you might’ve heard of that little election thing. It’s kinda making a lot of people into grumps. The only comfort I can offer there is that it will all be over soon. Until then, hang in there, cross your fingers, say your prayers, and we can all hope for the best whatever happens.

If you’ve never been here until now, this is a place for “serious” discussions. And they don’t have to be “sad” things either. Sexuality, masturbation, concern of relatives and friends, other issues–all are fair game here.

So, without further ado, here are the guidelines:

1. Be respectful. That goes without saying.

2. Keep discussions “serious.” We have plenty of other places to joke around around here, but sometimes people are in a place when they’re in a need for a hug instead of a yuk.

3. Try your best not to make anyone feel worse. In other words, if someone says “I’m worried Trump is going to start a war overseas,” don’t respond by saying, “Yeah, he’s definitely going to.”

4. If politics and/or religion are brought up, do not try to turn the conversation into an argument. We have other threads for that. This is a safe space and should please be treated as such.

5. I’m not a leader bean, so tend to the mods if there are any issues, but I’m pretty confident that everyone will be nice here.

6. If you bring up something controversial and don’t wish to have it turn into a debate, please say “I’m not looking for a debate here.” If someone says this in their post, everyone please respect that.

Well, that’s it. Have a blessed night, everyone!

Choose kind.

And you are loved.
