BELOW THE BELT is a multi-faceted genderblog designed to provide a space for informed, critical commentary about gender, sex, sexuality, and the many other aspects of gender facing people around the world.

Our bi-monthly and guest contributors each bring a unique tone to the blog and (like our visitors) are encouraged to engage themselves with the posts and start a discussion. We’re here not to agree with each other all the time, but to instead provide constructive critique and create a real dialogue.

Most of our contributors use avatars for publishing in order to create a more open environment for discussion, however we operate with a thin veil of anonymity. Any contributions made to the blog, either by way of larger posts or comments, should be made with mind to the reality of anonymity on the internet (meaning, it's not as anonymous as one might think).

Rules and Moderation

BELOW THE BELT reserves the right to moderate all posts and comments in order to maintain a safe environment for dialogue. It’s one thing to challenge boundaries constructively, and it’s another to create a caustic environment.

Views expressed in columns do not necessarily reflect the views of BTB and its other writers. BTB may predominantly feature writers of a certain political leaning, but we welcome applications from writers along a wide spectrum of views.

Of special note: pornographic pictures may not be posted, and links to pornographic material are only allowed if there is EXPLICIT mention that the link is NSFW (Not Safe For Work). We want people to theoretically be able to read BTB anywhere and not feel like they’ll “get caught”.
