FORUM GUIDELINES

Welcome to the MyGSA.ca discussion forums! This is a space for discussion, sharing resources and ideas, posing questions, and interacting with others interested in safer schools and inclusive education throughout the country.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the forum guidelines:

 

1.  Always Be Respectful in your interactions in the forums. Any posts deemed discriminatory or that include forms of hate speech will be removed as soon as possible.

We take the safety and security of MyGSA.ca users very seriously, so any posts that could be considered to be in violation of Canadian laws will be communicated to law enforcement and/or government agencies.

Unacceptable forum content includes posts that are…

ABLEIST

AGEIST

BIPHOBIC

CISPHOBIC

HETEROPHOBIC

HOMOPHOBIC

LESBOPHOBIC

MISOGYNISTIC

PORNOGRAPHIC

RACIST

SEXIST

SEXUALLY EXPLICIT

TRANSPHOBIC

XENOPHOBIC

Other content that is considered to be offensive could also be removed at the discretion of the MyGSA.ca moderators.

 

2.  Keep yourself safe! Do not post any personal information (address, telephone number, etc.) on the forums as it potentially visible to all of the users of MyGSA.ca. For more information on being safe, check out our Internet Privacy Statement.

3.  If you believe a post on MyGSA.ca is inappropriate, please Alert the MyGSA.ca Moderators immediately. Attacking or provoking someone whose online comments are hate-filled or inappropriate doesn’t contribute positively to the situation. Telling the moderators will ensure that the proper course of action is taken.

4.  No Personal Attacks, please! Internet discussions can become heated at times, and people certainly don’t always agree, but conversations work best when we focus on the topic at hand. Just because someone’s opinion is different than yours does not make it acceptable to post negative or disparaging comments about that individual.                                                                 

5.  Stay on Topic. Threads in the forums are based on discussion topics or questions. If you post in a forum, make sure your post relates to the topic being discussed. If you want to make a post, but can’t find a relevant topic, make a new thread and invite others to talk about it!          

6.  Contribute generously and often! These forums are here for your use, so let other students and/or educators around the country know what you’ve been up to at your school: what’s working and what isn’t working? Do you have ideas for fundraising activities, collaborative projects, or cool assignments…or do you have questions relating to LGBTQ matters in schools? Looking forward to hearing from you!
