In the event of the closure of The Gender Society (something we hope will never be necessary), membership refunds will not be available, outside our thirty day guarantee period. We also reserve the right not to grant membership without explanation, to users for whom we determine that Gender Society membership is inappropriate.

Gender Society Community Rules

You agree to use The Gender Society Communities (including Message Boards) in accordance with the following Community Rules. These apply across all Gender Society community sites and services.

About your posts:

  • Contributions must be civil and tasteful
  • No disruptive, offensive or abusive behaviour: contributions must be constructive and polite, not mean-spirited or contributed with the intention of causing trouble.
  • No unlawful or objectionable content: unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, racially offensive or otherwise objectionable material is not acceptable.
  • If you use multiple logins for the purpose of disrupting the community or annoying other users you may have action taken against your accounts.
  • Be patient: users of all ages and abilities may be taking part in the relevant Gender Society Community.
  • No spamming or off-topic material: we don’t allow the submission of the same or very similar contributions many times. Please don't re-submit your contribution to more than one discussion, or contribute off-topic material in subject-specific areas.
  • No advertising
  • No impersonation
  • No inappropriate (e.g. vulgar, offensive etc) user names
  • You may not refer to specific URLs (web site addresses). If you know of a worthy web site relevant to the discussion topic, please inform the host of the Community area.


We advise that you never reveal any personal information about yourself or anyone else (for example: telephone number, home address or email address), and please do not include postal addresses of any kind. If you have a helpful address to share, inform the host of the relevant Community area using our Messenger facility, and they will promote it if they see fit.

About the law:

  • You may not submit any defamatory or illegal material of any nature in Gender Society Communities. This includes text, graphics, video, programs or audio.
  • Contributing material with the intention of committing or promoting an illegal act is strictly prohibited.
  • You agree to only submit materials which are your own original work. You must not violate, plagiarise, or infringe the rights of third parties including copyright, trade mark, trade secrets, privacy, publicity, personal or proprietary rights.
  • The views expressed in Gender Society Community areas are those of members of the public and are not necessarily those of The Gender Society.

Full Membership Billing:

All Full Membership payments are handled through PayPal and PayPoint subscriptions which automatically renew either monthly, quarterly or annually so you will be automatically billed at the end of your term for the next month quarter or year if your subscription is still active. You can, however, cancel your subscription at any time from within your PayPal or PayPoint control panel. You can also request a cancellation by contacting us but be sure to give us your correct user name. If you do not cancel by the end of your term, you will be automatically billed for the next term

If you're under 18:

We are sorry but we are unable to accept members under the age of 18. Please look at this page for more information...


If you breach these Terms of Use:

If you fail to abide by these Community Rules (and/or any variations in the relevant local house rules) when taking part in a Gender Society Community service, you may receive a warning that continuing to break the rules may result in action being taken against your account or accounts.

This action may include your relevant account or accounts being placed into a temporary or permanent suspension of your ability to participate in any or all of the Gender Society Community areas. In extreme cases, your membership account may be terminated and you may be banned from the community.

If you post or send offensive or inappropriate content anywhere on or to Gender Society Communities or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour at The Gender Society, and The Gender Society considers such behaviour to be serious and/or repeated, The Gender Society may use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop any further such infringements. This may include informing relevant third parties such as your ISP or email provider about the infringement/s.

The Gender Society reserves the right to delete any contribution, or take action against any account, at any time, for any reason and without notice.

And Finally:

If there is any conflict between these terms and specific terms appearing elsewhere on The Gender Society (including local house rules) then the latter shall prevail.

If any of these terms are determined to be illegal, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of the laws of any state or country in which these terms are intended to be effective, then to the extent and within the jurisdiction in which that term is illegal, invalid or unenforceable, it shall be severed and deleted from these terms and the remaining terms shall survive, remain in full force and effect and continue t be binding and enforceable.
