*We do not advocate for any specific political ideology, but we have set standards regarding the posting of harmful and denigrating pieces as it relates to minority groups. We see our platform as a sacred space of voices, and thus, view that it is our responsibility to highlight the diversity in the sport and to use our platform as a space of learning. That is why we exist. The freedom of speech, however, does not mean the freedom of hate speech.
