Discord has expanded its Hateful Conduct Policy to explicitly include prohibitions against misgendering and deadnaming in a policy update. Accompanying this policy update, Discord has also implemented a comprehensive warning system to enforce these guidelines effectively. “For example you may not post, share or engage in: Repeatedly using slurs to degrade and demean individuals or groups. This includes deadnaming or misgendering a transgender person,” the company explains. The popular social media platform in the gaming community initially updated its internal hate speech policy in April 2022 but went public with these changes in December as part of a regular review to improve transparency, a spokesperson for the company told The Advocate.
