Are any of ewe on Ravelry? Wondered if you had noticed a change since Casey's transition? Feels like it is going to pot.

It's awful. I had stopped posting any content myself (my own projects, forums, etc.) after the Trump ban because I thought it was a terrible move for free speech. It would've been one thing if they banned political speech and wanted to keep it about knitting. But I simply will not be gaslighted into believing that supporting Trump necessarily equals white supremacy, but open discussion and support of communism on the site has nothing to do with the genocides that ideology has invariably caused.

Now he's really upped the ante on the trans ideology. I can't believe his wife is still with him. The fetish stuff on the home page recently was particularly bad.

I only use it now to look up patterns, and then I go to the designer's site and buy from them directly to avoid Ravelry profiting. If there are good alternatives, we really need them now. No matter how people felt about the Trump thing, no one wants to feel like an unwitting participant in someone else's fetish. Even people who nominally support "trans rights" are going to find this disturbing.
