Hello
We have been receiving questions asking what certain Gileadean terms mean. We have published a glossary. Glossary of Gileadean Terms
Also, you can go ahead and ask questions, Commander Warren does not bite.
- Commander Phelps


(OOC: This glossary is compiled from a number of different glossaries off the internet, I did not write it. Also, if you are offended, or angry, about anything in this glossary, I do NOT apologize. This is canon, and it happens in my nation. If you wish to discuss any of these points, please do civilly. I am aware number 16 will make some people angry, but it is canon, and it happens in my nation.)

For LGBT, if they are fertile women, they are "redeemed", the meaning of which you can see the glossary for, all others are hanged. Ethnic minorities? The color of the skin is not important, its what's inside that counts. (OOC: Hulu series is canon, not book, that's why we are not racist.)

They are banned, not for that reason, but that they are actually usually bad for you, and also consumer drugs of any kind are banned. (OOC: Thanks for being so nice as to say I'm crazy. It's nice compared to the s*** I've been getting for number 16 in the Glossary.)

OOC: That's why my nation has portal technology that allows it to reach different universes. It lets me interact with more nations and makes a bit more sense than me saying it's 'magic' or giving no explanation at all.
You can ignore the question if you really want to, I guess I was just curious how your leader would react to such things. Sorry.
