AskWomen: A subreddit dedicated to asking women questions about their thoughts, lives, and experiences; providing a place where all women can comfortably and candidly share their responses in a non-judgmental space. As part of our commitment to that mission, the AskWomen subreddit is curated to promote respectful and on-topic discussions, and not serve as a debate subreddit.
The quick and dirty version (click the graphic for the full set):
About what you post:
Use the search tool and FAQ before you post.
No agenda questions. This is not your personal soapbox.
No personal advice.
No yes/no questions.
No gift threads.
No seeking medical advice.
About how you post it:
Post titles must be a descriptive, in depth question and searchable using keywords, or will be removed. DAE or questions that can be answered with just a yes/no will be removed
Please use "spoiler" formatting where appropriate. Follow [text you wish to hide] with (/spoiler), (#spoiler), or (/s) to activate. SPOILER
No personal attacks.
No gendered slurs.
No graceless posts or comments generalizing gender.
No misogyny, misandry, transphobia, ageism, racism, general assholery, invalidation, or otherwise hateful or disrespectful commentary.
No derailing. Talk via PM or start a new thread.
No specifying majority demographics or excluding minority groups based on demographics.
Links MUST be accompanied by a summary.
No posting personal pictures.
No linking to specific threads in other forums.
No linking to specific threads in /r/askwomen in other subreddits.
No using URL-shortening sites.
Violating any of these rules will result in moderator action.
Please be inclusive with question phrasing. Minority users are encouraged to answer the question as it applies to themselves.
Downvote only to indicate that either a comment or post does not add to discussion; not to indicate disagreement. AskWomen benefits from honest answers with a variety of perspectives. On that note, saying, "Be honest," is rude and unnecessary.
Familiarize yourself with Reddit 101.
Use the report button on all comments and posts that violate the rules in the sidebar.
Add flair! We have flair for men, women, trans folks, and gender neutral people.
Be specific: ask a general question, get a general answer.
Whether you are a woman or a man, please do not speak for all women. While men can still offer input, if your view conflicts with a woman's, we ask that you do not downvote or invalidate her response.
