Femboy Hunt creator rules =UPDATED February 2016=

▨ ▨ Femboy Hunt Creator Rules ▨ ▨

Here are the rules for creators. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Taki Kujisawa via notecard. You can also leave notecards in one of the mailboxes at the NOP~ Events Mall & Events Headquarters.

▨▨ The Rules:

▨ Items for all genders, mixes of or lack there-of are welcome, but all items with beast shading/shaping must be labeled in the hunt ad.

▨ If your item has breast shading or mixed genitalia (breast shaping and bulge for example), you MUST put this on your ad, or make it so it shows both in the ad.  We want to make sure hunters know exactly what they are getting. For example, if you are creating a mesh formal dress, and it has breast shaping, be sure to put text on the ad with something like 'For ladyboys and futa!'  'For Trans Women', etc.

▨ ADS OF ITEMS ARE REQUIRED. This is not a free hunt, so you must make an ad to post on the blog for hunters. You MUST send in your own ad of the item you are creating. If you do not, you will not be included in the promotions and may lose your spot in the hunt. We will not make your ads for you, and pictures/ads of the items ARE REQUIRED.

▨ Any rating is welcome on items, but be tasteful and have fun! ❤
(We know everyone's idea of 'tasteful' is different, so just do what you want, but don't be an arse about it.)

▨ NO AGE PLAY STORES OR ITEMS ACCEPTED.

▨ Please stick to the theme. If you offer a tattoo of snowflakes, and the theme is bubblegum, this does not suit the theme and you will be asked to offer another =NEW= item or be removed from the hunt.

▨ Items must reflect the style and quality of your store. Meaning we expect you to offer our hunters your best quality. Think of this as a dollarbie to entice them back to your stores.

▨ Your items cannot be resells, Business in a Box, copies or copybotted items of other's creations. They must be YOUR OWN creation, and they must be a new item, or a new version of an old item.

▨ Use of templates and creator kits is permitted, but the item cannot be right out of the box. It must be customized and a new creation. Mods are allowed (obviously) so long as the original maps are given with permission. If the items are not made by you, they will not be accepted. If you make mesh clothes from builder kits, etc, then make sure to customize them and add a prim so you show as creator, or upload the DAE file. Putting another creators item as is in the hunt is NOT PERMITTED.

▨ If your store moves, or you go offline for a long period of time, we will not chase you down. We do not have time to run around the grid finding your store because you forgot to update us. If your store disappears with no word from you, you will be dropped. It is your responsibility to keep us updated.

▨ Full permission items are allowed, so long as YOU are the original creator.

▨ If you don't understand something, please ask!

Please use this link as reference if you aren't sure what 'alternate or non-binary gender' is.

*This list has been created from feedback from hunters in previous events. All items at the event are subject to minimum quality standards at the discretion of hunt coordinators.

Thank You,

=What is a Femboy? Trap? Huh?= [Updated 02-2016]

For those who are not familiar with who femboys, andros, traps or other persons of alternate gender are, here are some examples and explanations.

NOT ALL THESE PICS ARE CONSIDERED SFW. It depends on your definition of what is safe and what is not.

Three notes:
1- 'Genderqueer' (also called non-binary or gender-expansive) is a catch all for anyone who does not identify as strictly masculine or feminine, and are considered to be outside the gender binary and cisnormativity, so everyone on this list would go under this umbrella term.
2- Many of these gender identities overlap and blur into others, no one is a 'perfect' example of just one thing as we are all unique, have different styles and cannot be stuffed into a neat little box. ^_^
3- All these definitions are in the simplest terms possible and are not all encompassing of each. We put them in these terms so everyone can understand them.

(Cisnormativity: Cisgendered persons are people whose gender identity matches that of the sex they were assigned at birth.)

*Femboys are males who are more effeminate, sometimes in their mannerisms, physical body, or dress, often blurring the line between male and female. (Note: Femboys are NOT twinks.)

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*At first glance, the physical gender of someone who is andro is not obvious or obviously defined. Andro is short for androgynous.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*Traps can be male or female, but are often mistaken as the opposite so it's a surprise when you find out they aren't. For example: A femboy can be a trap, if he is so pretty that people mistake him for a girl. On the flip side, a tomboy can be a trap also.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3

*Transgenders are not traps, they are mentally and/or physically the gender they identify with, regardless of whether their physical matches their mental identity.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3
--Example 4

*A person of Alternate Gender (also known as genderqueer) is anyone not strictly male or female as defined by society. This can be someone who cross dresses, is a trap, femboy, androgyn, futa, shemale, sissy, transgender, etc.

--Example 1
--Example 2
--Example 3
--Example 4

*A sissy is a male who adopts hyper-feminine behaviors, cross dresses and engages in stereotypical "feminine" activities, including taking on the "submissive female" role in a relationship. (Not all sissies are transgender.)

--Example 1
--Example 2

*A Tgirl looks exactly like every other girl, but has a little extra down below... usually a lot extra, actually.

*Futa is short for futanari, which, in the hentai community, is a dick girl. A being that has the body of a female and the genitalia of a stallion (i.e. REALLY BIG) and extremely large breasts.

*A ladyboy is a male who naturally has all the attributes of a woman except for the plumbing. Some ladyboys do not need surgery or makeup to look like a woman, nor is there a need to try and sound like a woman as it is all natural for them. Some are considered transgender and can be taking hormones or had breast augmentation to create a more feminine body.

*Kathoey is the Thai term referring to either a transgender woman or an effeminate gay man. Kathoeys still have their male parts along with breasts, and are often perceived as belonging to a third gender.

*A hermaphrodite is a person who has both male and female genitals and secondary sex characteristics. The word INTERSEX has come into preferred usage for humans, since the word hermaphrodite is considered to be misleading and stigmatizing.

*Neutrois is a term that has many meanings. It is a non-binary gender identity that falls under the genderqueer or transgender umbrellas. You can read more here: http://neutrois.com/

Please note, sexual preference has nothing to do with gender identity. Femboys, traps, androgynous, transgender and all other forms of alternate genders can be any sexual orientation, regardless of how they dress or appear outwardly.

Always be respectful of each other's identities. It can be difficult at times to know a person's identity if you are meeting them for the first time. If you are not sure of a person's gender identity, take cues from their friends, or you can politely ask in private what their preferred pronouns are.

I have also linked to blogs, but be warned, some pics are graphic and Adult in nature. The links to individual pictures we've supplied are all artistic and work safe ^_^v


If you have any questions, please contact Taki Kujisawa.

FEMBOY HUNT FAQ's!

We've been receiving a lot of questions from hunters and creators alike, so we'll be compiling them here in one place for everyone to read! =D If you have a question that isn't here, contact Taki Kujisawa in-world~

1- What am I looking for? 
--This is what you are looking for. It can be any size, any color and there may be decoys!

2- If it's the 'femboy hunt', then why are futa, ladybois, andro and whatever else still included? 
--The reason we accept stores that cater to all non-binary and alternate genders is because there isn't enough out there for all of us who do not restrict our imaginations, self expression, fashion, and gender. SL, just like RL is mostly male/female, and for us to create a strong community and acceptance we must all work together. That and on any given day the Femboy Hunt creator could be any gender, species or whatnot they choose, and sees no point in restricting self expression.

3- What about furry femboys? 
--A femboy is a femboy, regardless of species! We want everyone to participate, fuzzy or not! =D

4- Can sissies and sissie stores join the hunt?
 --Yes! We'd love to have you participate!

5- I don't have an in-world store, can I still join the hunt? How will it work?
--Marketplace stores are encouraged to join also! Instead of an LM or SLURL to your in-world store, we would have a link to your MP instead. There will be no direct linking to the item, so hunters have to 'hunt' on your MP for it! The item will be set for 2$L the same as the in-world boxes. 

6-  Why isn't the hunt free? 
--The purpose of the Femboy Hunt is to introduce hunters to the different store, sims and clubs that support the theme and the community it represents and allow them to try items from the stores for a low cost.

7- My shop doesn't cater to femboys/traps/etc specifically, but I make cute unisex clothes/jewelry/shoes/other accessories.
--Ok! We all need and love nice clothes and jewelry, so why not register?
