Thank you for stopping by to check out Intimate Truths! This is intended to be a place for holy, honest, and respectful discussion of the many intimate things that affect all areas of female sexuality but that are often shushed in Christian circles. Since a lot of you don’t have another space to talk about these things, we want to allow you to comment and reply to one another. However, please keep in mind that you’re essentially having a conversation while sitting around having a cup of coffee with your [most likely but not always Christian] sisters. Your comments and replies have the power to build up or tear down; if you need to disagree (which is welcomed!), please do so with grace, humility, and after considering how your words will come across. Your words are a permanent record of who you are and what you stand for – to make sure they add value to the discussion as well as IT and your own online legacy (especially when you’re passionate about the topic).
A few things to remember when commenting/replying to comments:
- Comments are incredibly important. We welcome vigorous and grace-filled discussion as well as anonymous commenting. All comments will be moderated before they are posted and may be deleted; we are not obligated to publish your comments. Thank you for your patience with the comment process and also for respective people’s desire to speak openly about intimate topics.
- Please feel free to post follow-up questions. Chances are, you’re not the only one wondering something after having read a particular blog post. Comment threads are the best place to engage in that discussion rather than via email since the answer you’re seeking would also then be shared with others.
- Disagreements/debates are welcomed. However, if you do disagree with the content of a post or a comment left in a thread, please be respectful in how you respond. Many of the topics addressed on IT are things not talked enough about in Christian circles for precisely this reason. I may think one way and you another but when we, say, start attacking one another’s salvation based on our sexual choices, we’ve got a problem on our hands. We don’t always know the consequences of our internet comments so think about how you would feel if someone said to you what you are about to say and said it in front of the whole world. Would you speak the way you’re writing if you the person was standing right in front of you?
- Comments will be deleted if you post something that is a) snarky, b) off-topic, c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or otherwise violates or encourages others to violate decorum and civility or any other law, including intellectual property laws, or spam.
- Ownership and license of your comments: they are your comments in regards to any and all liability that may result from them. However, by commenting here, you grant IT license to post your comments: this license, is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant IT the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.
I recently ran across an article called “How to be nice on the internet” by a secular writer. She and her friends created a parody blog and the targeted woman (Becca) found out about it. The author has since apologized and has since become friends with Becca. She ends the story with 7 takeaways/reminders for how to accomplish the posts title.
