Our stance on racism and white supremacy (in craft)

Our stance on racism and white supremacy (in craft)

Update Monday, June 24,2019:

Over the weekend, Ravelry (the world's largest knitting website, which inspired Textillia, and whose owners we consider friends) created a new policy extending their anti-hate speech rules to include banning any pro-Trump content. (If you want the backstory, there's a good summary on TechCrunch.) The story blew up and has been all over the news, and we have received some emails demanding to know whether we have a similar stance (clearly from people who are new here, and/or didn't take a minute to look around before emailing). So, although there is barely any room left for (mis)interpretation, to be crystal clear:

  • We stand 100% in solidarity with Ravelry.
  • We stand 100% in solidarity with marginalized people and those doing anti-racism work. (This includes people who are LGTBQ+, disabled, immigrants, BIPOC, and other marginalised groups.)
  • Like on Ravelry, promoting Trump and/or white supremacy, hate speech against marginalised people, bullying, taunting, etc. will not be tolerated on TextiIlia.
  • We welcome people across the political and religious spectrum, but if your beliefs are harmful toward marginalised people, you are not welcome to post or promote them here in any fashion.
