While our list of rules may be long (and we may continually add new rules as necessary), there is one important thing to remember:

Inclusive Friendships was created to create inclusive friendships.

1) The most important rule for I.F. is the Golden Rule: Treat other people the way you would like to be treated.
2) We understand that different populations have different difficulties when it comes to communication; however everyone should always do their best not to intentionally offend others.
3) Everyone has opinions and everyone is allowed opinions.  However, if you know that your opinion will cause someone else to get sad or angry, keep it to yourself.
4) Respect everyone.  If someone wants you to stop doing something, stop doing it or excuse yourself from the situation.
