CHARTER OF SOC.WOMEN.LESBIAN-AND-BI

The group soc.women.lesbian-and-bi will be a forum for the discussion
of the lives of lesbian and bisexual women. The universe of potential
discourse will be limited only by the requirement of relevance and the
norm of civility.  Contributors need not, of course, themselves be
lesbian or bisexual women. Any submission satisfying the requirements
of relevance and civility and conforming to the group's moderation
policy will be accepted for posting.  Certain topics are clearly
inappropriate for this newsgroup. In particular, generalized political
or religious discussion of the legitimacy of the gay rights movement
or of same-sex orientation or conduct is beyond the scope of this
newsgroup. Other exclusions will be in accordance with the Moderator's
Handbook and policies developed in reliance thereon by the group's
moderators.
