What is an unsafe situation?
Unsafe situations can happen anytime and to anyone, and they are not your fault. If you are not feeling comfortable in our platform, you should always get in contact with our team at Kiron. Some examples of situations that are not safe:
- If a person is insulting others, or saying swear words or any offensive comments
- If a person makes offensive comments related to gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, physical appearance, political affiliation, marital status, age, race, national origin, ethnic origin, nationality, immigration status, language, religion or lack thereof, or other identity marker.
- If a person makes comments that diminish the experiences of indigenous and black people or people of colour.
- If a person makes offensive comments about your lifestyle choices and practices, including those related to food, health, parenting, relationships, drugs, and employment.
- If a person threats or intimidates others with violent comments.
- If a person asks others to make violent or abusive comments towards any individual or group.
- If a person encourages another person to self-harm themselves.
- If a person has inappropriate social contact or attitudes that request or assume intimacy with others.
- If a person shares sexual images or makes sexual comments.
- If a person dedicates you unwelcome sexual attention, simulated physical contact (e.g. textual descriptions like "hug" or "backrub") without consent.
- If a person shares offensive photography or recording.
- If a person stalks other people's activities or controls them (e.g. keeping a record of online activity of a member for harassment purposes; or repeatedly sending messages to someone without their consent).
- If a person shares private communication without the consent of the person involved.
- If a person reveals any aspect of a person's identity without their consent.
- If a person insists you in continue talking after you requested them to stop.
- If a person exposes people to violent language, images or videos, especially without any trigger warning.
- Jokes that sound like the harassments mentioned above still count as harassment even if said in a satirical or ironic manner.
