Trans women are women, and non-binary people are valid and welcome here.
This isn’t an appropriate place to engage in biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, aro/acephobia, racism, misogyny, ableism, religious intolerance, caste discrimination, or other divisive rhetoric.
If you intend to discuss sensitive topics humanely and respectfully, consider adding a content warning.
This bears repeating: NEVER share the contents of the forum outside of the forum unless you have explicit permission from the author of that content.
Note that although gwe-anon and xgwe-anon share similar policies, this guideline still holds: please do not copy content from one to the other unless you have explicit permission from the author of that content.
Remember that not all of the members of this forum are currently Googlers. If you see information that Google/Alphabet has not yet released to the general public, please flag the post ASAP, as the ramifications could threaten the existence of xgwe-anon.
We may be required to de-anon you to comply with legal investigations if you breach this rule.

Users are at liberty to de-anon themselves, but don’t de-anon anybody else. Be truthful, and never pose as another poster.
Never discuss individual Googlers or ex-Googlers by name.
