/o/Activism is for all calls to action and listing/forming feminist groups. Fundraisers, petitions, letter-writing and call-in campaigns go there.

/o/TransLogic is similar to the old GenderCynicalCritical subreddit and is for documenting, criticizing, and lampooning some of the sexist, racist, and otherwise horrifying or ridiculous things trans activists say or do. It's a broad circle that includes the content that doesn't belong in a more specific circle, such as /o/ThisNeverHappens, /o/ItsAFetish, or /o/TerfIsASlur.

We need more hobby subs so we can crush any lingering feelings about posting on Reddit. Girl Gamers please.

Just as a note, hobby and miscellaneous stuff can be posted in /o/Women. The fastest way to make us prioritize a new circle is to see the topics being discussed a lot in a more general sub.

I don't think many people are going to post content in o/Women that would belong in the off-topic subs they want. A lot of what we want is places for articles/videos/memes that have nothing in particular to do with women. Even if it's women talking about it, it'd just feel weird posting really random stuff in o/Women when that space is clearly currently taking the form of a casual chat area. I'm not going to spam o/Women with the kind of content I'd be putting in o/art, o/satire, o/science, o/politics, o/amazingearth, or o/tiredofwoke.

The idea of off-topic content has been very popular around here, as expressed in upvotes/comments in o/circles. I know you're maybe low on potential moderators with the standards you have, but I don't understand why "less trusted" people can't moderate off-topic circles... if they're found to be using it for an agenda, they could always be kicked off, right? Many of us have quit reddit and just want some off-topic stuff to entertain us as we marinate in COVID. I don't understand how limiting topics here would be strategically wise - GC 24/7 will eventually get boring for anyone.

This. It would feel bizarre to post about node.js frameworks or database indexing in o/women. Or filling it with pet or garden photos, when we could have o/pets or o/gardening.

How do we make new subreddits (subovarits?) on this? I would be down for making/modding k an Actual Girl Gamers one. The Reddit one is overrun with trans "women" and any generalist video game forum is gonna be male dominated.

Is cross-posting in /o/genderCritical or another relevant circle allowed for activism posts?

In the short term I don't think we'll stop anyone but we need to not do that long-term. It needs to be categorization, not spam.
