I'm 100% for this, i have done a once over and agree with everything

I've read the text, the only real issue is that this of course isn't written by a lawyer. So it might not be very watertight as far as rules go.

However I do have one issue with the first guideline:

This is not a professional space. Individuality is not only welcome, but encouraged. Professionalism asks marginalized individuals to censor themselves, and perform their identity in an inauthentic, unchallenging manner, which caters solely to those in power (namely rich, white, cisgender, heterosexual men). Seeking professionalism is antithetical to the goal of equity, and thus, these guidelines reject it.

I get why you'd use the words "professional space" here, referring to the typically toxic business environments. But keep in mind that one can also simply act in a professional manner, i.e. in line with their profession, usually boiling down to being responsible, ensuring quality and being respectful for your peers and colleagues. Or at least that's how I see it, but feel free to tell me if I'm wrong. But I do not view "suppressing individuality" as professional behavior. Rather the opposite.

I'm mostly concerned here with wording it correctly. Because from the get go it almost sounds to me like you're trying to say "we're all unprofessional here" which sounds a bit odd.

The rest of the guidelines are good as they are I think. I presume there's nothing else that should be added to it?

The Akkoma project aims to be **enjoyable** for anyone to participate in, regardless of their identity or level of expertise. To achieve this, the community must create an environment which is **safe** and **equitable**; the following guidelines have been created with these goals in mind.
1. **This is not a professional space.** Individuality is not only welcome, but encouraged. Professionalism asks marginalized individuals to censor themselves, and perform their identity in an inauthentic, unchallenging manner, which caters solely to those in power (namely rich, white, cisgender, heterosexual men). Seeking professionalism is *antithetical* to the goal of equity, and thus, these guidelines reject it.

from off-site feedback, this reads as a litttttttle aggressive, which whilst potentially not unjustified, might scare some people off

this paragraph in general might be something to rework to say "this is a casual space, we don't expect full professional behaviour but we do expect civility" or similar

- There will be queers, punks, femboys, drag queens, furries, hackers, kinksters, and all sorts of other people here. And the project will reflect that. If you don't like this, consider looking for Free Software projects [elsewhere](https://loose-files.keithhacks.cyou/img/trashcan.jpg).
2. **Treat individuals with respect.** Differing experiences and viewpoints deserve to be respected, and bigotry and harassment are not tolerated under any circumstances.
- Individuals should never be made to feel unsafe or unvalued due to their age, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, appearance, education, level of expertise, or other factors.

some additional off-site feedback: this could probably be codified into a positive-action rather than a negative-dont

like "Respect should be given regardless of [attribute list]"

I have no complaint about the document as it is. Glad seeing base expectations being made here.

This version looks good to me!

Though the footer should probably be revised from

This document was created by ~keith as part of punks default repository template,

To something more like

This document is derived from the one created by ...
