The LGBTA+ wikia is intended to be a resource to learn about sexualities and genders, particularly those that don't have much information about them online. Before making major edits to a page it's recommended that you read this page to ensure your edits meets the suggested requirements.

When adding information you should assume that the person reading your page has little to no knowledge of this term, the LGBT+ community, and internal LGBT+ politics. Explain your topic from the ground up, do not use overly complex and specific terminology unless it's necessary, and you've provided the groundwork for the reader to understand these terms.

Present your article objectively. Unless it is about a hate group, or a problematic identity (such a sapiosexual or metrosexual) you should not try to tell the reader why they should or should not use the term. You should not say that a term is bad or should not be used (unless it is one of the aforementioned "problematic identities"). You should objectively describe what the term in, and if necessary describe who identifies with the term and why. Do not bring up "discourse" or similar things in the article unless that discourse is important to the formation of term as we know it (such as the case with allosexual) in which case put it in the 'history' section.

Dos and Don'ts Edit
