We have collected this content with care so that our community shares a common understanding of concepts and skills we consider key to navigate LVRSNFRNDS and serve our purpose.
A list of things LVRSNFRNDS is built on.
We believe that whatever makes our identity is not for others to decide, can evolve, and respecting pronouns enforces this about gender.
We believe that it is not enough to be "not-racist", we must be anti-racist: actively identifying and opposing racism in our every day.
We believe that we are all responsible at all time to communicate making sure folks have agency, are safe and feel respected. And this does not only apply to sex.
Intersectionality & Intersectional Feminism
We believe that it is important to see how all parts of someone's identity (race, gender, disability, appearance, etc.) intersect and affect their experience.
We believe that it's important to think about privileges to become more aware of ourselves and others, and to use our privileges to help the less priviledged.
We believe that we should use our privileges to help lift others up against all forms of oppressions.
We believe that addressing harm should not be through more violence but rather through community-based solution engaging in harm reduction to lessen the violence.
A list of things we do not want to see at LVRSNFRNDS
We have a zero tolerance policy against discrimination, including but not limited to, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, etc. Below are concepts that are lesser known that we encourage you to learn about.
Because it erases the person and it's built on stereotypes that reinforce racism.
Because it's harmful to all and everyone can participate in it.
Mononormativity & heteronormativity
Because one should not assume that everyone is monogamous and heterosexual, nor that these are the golden standard.
Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists aka TERFs
Because if your feminism doesn't include trans women, it's not feminism.
Sex Workers Exclusionary Feminists aka SWERFs
Because sex work is work and if your feminism doesn't include sex workers, it's not feminism.
Because feminism too needs to open up space for more voices to be heard.
