Reddit's Official 'Hate Speech' Policy Doesn't Appear to Apply to Women, White People


A little-noticed detail in Reddit’s official “hate speech” policy specifically exempts “people who are in the majority” — which, in the United States would include white people and women — from its protections.

The “hate speech” policy protects minorities and prohibits attacks based on peoples’ “actual and perceived race,” but does not extend to “people who are in the majority:”

Rule 1: Remember the human. Reddit is a place for creating community and belonging, not for attacking marginalized or vulnerable groups of people. Everyone has a right to use Reddit free of harassment, bullying, and threats of violence. Communities and people that incite violence or that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned.

Marginalized or vulnerable groups include, but are not limited to, groups based on their actual and perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability.
