1 // context matters
When moderating content on Sunroom, we take into account the subject of the post, their poses, the environment they’re in, the language they’re using, the activity they’re engaged in, their caption, and other visual cues like clothing, accessories, props, etc. We look carefully at the intent of each post, including any insinuations or innuendo. At this stage, this process is manual for us. We have a real human making moderation decisions.
2 // women's business deserves airtime
Womens business tends to be heavily moderated on other platforms. Creating a space that doesn’t censor these important topics is a priority of ours. We welcome posts that touch on topics like body positivity, sexual wellness, sex education, child birth and breastfeeding, body image, sexuality, gender identity, misogyny, and pleasure.
3 // we don’t automate decisions that affect a creator's earnings
A creator’s business is not something we take lightly. For many of our creators, their Sunroom earnings form a large part of their total income, so we’ll never automate decisions that may affect their earnings & livelihood. This means we won’t employ any automated systems to assess and remove posts. We’ll leave that work to the humans.
4 // no shame or moral judgments
Our content guidelines do not exist to provide any arbitrary distinctions between what we believe to be “right” and “wrong”; rather, they exist to ensure Sunroom remains a safe, expressive, and supportive space. Deciding on where to draw the “line” with our content was informed by our creators’ needs, not by our own personal sensibilities or ideas of taste.
5 // diversity is key, for creators & members alike
Sunroom is designed to house a variety of content from a diverse range of creators. The comfort of all our creators is a priority for us and we are committed to maintaining the diversity of our space to make sure all women & nonbinary creators feel welcome. Content that is conventionally seen as “sensitive” will be marked as such and hidden by default, so that there are no surprises for anyone.
6 // body shape and skin color don’t affect moderation decisions
We understand that idealized Western beauty standards can affect the moderation of women’s bodies in unfair ways. We will never enforce our content moderation policies on some bodies and not others – we are committed to ensuring that all women creators are safe to create without being censored, regardless of size, ability, ethnicity or assigned gender. We embrace bodies of all kinds, all standards and all representations of beauty.
