COMMENT and community rules
for the uniform police
I hear you. You won’t change my mind and I know I won’t change yours. Let’s agree to disagree. There are more important things in this word to be upset about than what someone else chooses to wear.
BE A SISTER
Just be nice. Treat others how you want to be treated.
MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
It’s on all of us to ensure that everyone is treated justly. If you see any racism, sexism, transphobia, xenophobia, threats, violence, or hate of any kid, please use the reporting functions available on that platform. This goes for this entire website as well as any social media channels, face-to-face functions, or any place where The Badge Fairy is represented. We reserve the right to edit or delete any material that we see fit.
