CONSENT & HARASSMENT POLICY
ROPECRAFT is designed to promote a safe and fun experience for all attendees. All activity should be consensual, both in and out of play, in both actions and language. Harassment of other attendees will absolutely not be tolerated.
All attendees, staff, vendors, and presenters are expected to treat others with respect and consideration and agree to abide by the following statements:
“I will do my best to respect the identities of Ropecraft attendees as they are expressed. This includes refraining from non-consensual racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, ageist, ableist, sizeist, or other prejudicial remarks.”
“I will work towards creating non-coercive consent in all my interactions. Some examples of coerced consent are: following a person(s) around and pressing for scenes despite receiving multiple rejections or expressions of obvious disinterest.”
“I will do my best to be thoughtful and aware of my actions and how they affect those around me. I will respect the physical and mental space of scenes or dynamics. This includes my own – I will practice self-care as needed by removing myself from situations that make me feel uncomfortable or unsafe.”
ANY DEVIATION FROM THESE GUIDELINES WILL BE TREATED LIKE ANY CONSENT VIOLATION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: REMOVAL FROM THE EVENT WITHOUT REFUND, NOTIFICATION OF OTHER EVENT ORGANIZERS, AND/OR INVOLVING LAW ENFORCEMENT.
