De Goede Huisvader

It’s Pride Month every day

What does this mean?

Without detracting from the value or history of Pride Month, every day is Pride Month at De Goede Huisvader. But what exactly is that?

There are plenty of companies, organizations and institutions that do their best to show during Pride Month or similar moments that they are involved in the LGBTQIA + community. Maybe they are, but you don’t hear much about them at other times. In some cases, you don’t hear about it at all, because it’s not too bad.

De Goede Huisvader not only writes about this subject (because of the involvement as a parent) but also wants to do more (also because of the involvement as a parent). Not just during Pride Month. Not only during the special days. Also at other times. Every day, when necessary.

That’s why it’s Pride Month every day at De Goede Huisvader. Again, without detracting from the value of that Pride Month.

What was it before?

First, let’s see what it entailed…

Previously you could use web hosting solutions via De Goede Huisvader. That is no longer the case. Nowadays it’s just about management support.

Because there are still customers with contracts that are active under the old terms and conditions, you can read in these old general terms and conditions what you are and are not allowed to do. These conditions are only available in Dutch. Therefore an English translation. You read what you can and can’t do when it comes to posting content.

Naast de ‘gebruikelijke’ zaken (overigens niet voor iedere aanbieder gebruikelijk), gelden er ook beschermingen die anderen niet opgenomen hebben in algemene voorwaarden.

Content that conveys an anti-Semitic, discriminatory or racist message

Any message that conveys an anti-Semitic, discriminatory or racist message will not be accepted. Any appeal to freedom of expression will not supersede the rights laid down in the Dutch Constitution, which protects such expressions.

This category also includes sexism, anti-feminist statements and related issues. Discrimination against the LGBTQIA+ community is also not tolerated by the service provider.

Memes or satire are not seen as such as entertainment in this context and therefore fall into the same category and are grounds for removal.

Consequence: This content is immediately removed by the client. In addition, the agreement is immediately terminated by the client. There will be no refund of the costs incurred by the client. If necessary, a report will be made to the police.

The current situation

Things change when a customer takes out their contract through a web hosting service provider.

Even when De Goede Huisvader manages a website or webshop, it is difficult to set requirements for the content. After all, De Goede Huisvader is no longer a service provider.

From that moment on, it therefore leads to what will happen or can happen when it comes to the content of a website and what the possible consequences are for cooperation. In short, there is a match when it comes to cooperation.

Instead of ‘hard’ commercial interests or considerations, social interests play a greater role. Is it possible to provide services or products based on what the company, organization or institution stands for? This does not only apply to this topic. Other important topics, such as discrimination in general, emancipation in general, and the environment are also important measuring factors for whether or not to enter into a business relationship.

That’s not all. It is not always about commercial interests. It’s not always about money. As a small entrepreneur, De Goede Huisvader knows how difficult it is to get things done. In other cases not, because De Goede Huisvader (as a person) does not belong to the LGBTQIA+ community.

What else?

No, I (let’s get personal now) don’t know what it’s like. What I do know: I have two children who belong to the community. I show interest, I listen to stories from the community. I notice that it is sometimes difficult to convey a message without it being disturbed by influences that you do not want.

It is not that I can solve or remove those ‘influences’. I can think of you. Besides, I can help. I want to help. From a commitment that goes beyond just that one month of the year. So, therefore it’s  Pride Month every day.

What are the options? What kind of things are we talking about then? To name just a few examples: advice, securing your website/webshop, the complete construction of your website or webshop or advice on this. Or the questions you have yourself. Bring it on.

Well, let’s just talk to each other. So that we can see what the possibilities are. Who knows where that could lead?
