Combatting hate, harassment, and discrimination
We want our Hosts and guests to have stays and Experiences free from harassment and discrimination.
What we don’t allow
- Bullying and harassment: No one should be subjected to unwanted behavior, such as bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, or stalking.
- Discriminatory refusal of service: Hosts may not refuse service to a guest because the guest belongs to a group or category, like race or religion, as explained in our Nondiscrimination Policy.
- Discriminatory differential treatment: Hosts should not apply different treatment, rules, or behavior to a guest because of the guest’s membership in a protected class.
- Dangerous speech: No one should be subjected to language that calls for harm, dehumanizes, or claims an individual is a threat or physical danger to others because that individual belongs to a protected class.
- Slurs, hate speech, or derogatory language: No one should be subjected to prejudicial language related to another individual’s membership in a protected class, such as expressions of contempt, disgust, or physical, mental, or moral deficiencies.
- Deadnaming or misgendering: Individuals who identify as transgender should not be referred to by their pre-transition name or pronouns if they inform others that they use different ones post-transition.
- Coded language or microaggressions: No one should be targeted with phrases that are deeply rooted societal stereotypes based on membership in a protected class.
- Hateful, discriminatory, or offensive images, symbols, or objects: No one should be subjected to images that denigrate a religion or a culture, images that contain derogatory/coded language, or symbols, logos, or slogans tied to extremist or hate groups.
