Disclaimer: I follow 0 subreddits that are political or include any type of identity politics stuff. The only reason I'm still even on Preddit is to participate in communities that have something to do with my hobbies or non-political interests.

Look, I have no fucking clue how, but I still see countless posts made by TIMs where they stress the fact they're "twanswimmin!!1!" Like, dude, wtf does this have to do with knitting/baking/curly hair routines? I'm not even joking when I say that I see posts that are basically "look at what I knitted! I'm a twans girl btw uwu" or "whats my curl pattern? btw im trans hope im welcome here :>>"

Like can y'all ever just stfu? I automatically downvote every post that I see that even mentions trans now. I'm exhausted. Reddit does have a lot of useful and helpful communities, but I would love to go even one day in my life without someone mentioning the goddamn gender bullshit or their cultists followers.

They're everywhere on reddit. "I'm a white lesbian transwoman and my life is so hard! I make $300k a year at my programming job (I started the job thinking I was a man - teehee) and I have a lesbian wife and a one year old kid. I came out to my wife as soon as she became pregnant because her pregnancy caused me to have really bad dysphoria :( :(. Sometimes she hurts my feelings because she doesn't understand that I need weekly mani/pedis to pass as a woman."

that reminded me of what a trans said (I think it was in a "lesbian" sub) about how he was going to wait until his wife got pregnant to come out as a transwoman because he knew that if he did it before, she would dump him. Those bastards just disgust me now.

Jesus! What were the responses from the sub to that?

I don't really remember very well, it was a while ago that I saw it, I just remember that disgusting comment because of the impression it gave me (besides that I read it when it had been discovered that the US court was planning to remove the law for abortions).

I think most people were "sympathetic" to him, but also told him that he shouldn't do something like that.

Sometimes she hurts my feelings by not agreeing to an open marriage in which part can explore my identity.

Reminds me of the reddit post from years ago where the scrote demanded an “open relationship” then was hugely pissed because his wife was the one who acquired a lover or two and nobody was remotely interested in him.

My daughter's dad was in a semi-open marriage when I met him and oh, it was okay if he had the wife and umpty-billion girlfriends but any time he was around her being affectionate to another man he went into full on "look at me! look at me!" mode. Frequently with one of his other partners, me for instance, standing right the fuck there. Real self-esteem booster, lemme tell ya.

(No, I am not in the poly community anymore. Thank fuck.)

I downvote every twans character who posts or comments on any lesbian sub. I know it's kind of a lost cause with AL but I know they still get annoyed. Sometimes they make rage posts about the huge terf infestation they seem to have haha so I think it's worth it.

By "terf" they just mean the tiny number of actual lesbians who still lurk, or even actual bisexuals who dare to mention female/female relationships. They want it to be a "safe space" for AGPs and queer (straight) transmaids only. Why can't they start their own god damned club for that? If there are women out there who want to date and socialize with crossdressing men that's their own business, I just don't understand why they hunt down lesbians, subject us to this shit that has nothing to do with us, chase us out, and then come find us at our new location to repeat the cycle. Just leave us alone 😭

It's true, I'm sure there are a few actual actual lesbians who don't know that wanting men out of lesbian spaces makes them evil terfs :( And yeah the trans males will never disengage their grimey claws from lesbian and female spaces. They literally have 50+ trans dedicated subs. I don't feel bad for downvoting pervy and predatory men. They can claim they're innocent all day but they're all nasty. They deserve to be bullied out, not kissed on their balding foreheads by idiot handmaidens.

It's like that classic comic of the pink blobs making their own space after the grey blobs tell them they don't "fit in" and in the next panel the grey blobs are in the pink's space saying "you do not fit in here." It can apply to so many things it's great.

Lol I’ve seen them make posts to complain that their trans-related posts in lesbian subreddits didn’t receive 100% upvotes. Any lesbian who doesn’t put on an act of awe and wonder for their performances is considered an evil feminazi terf 🙄

[–] real_feminist 108 points Edited

Don't forget to downvote all the handmaidens in the comments that stroke their egos too!

I do this and then call them dick panderers 😂 slowly getting banned one sub at a time.

They want to “pass” and be “stealth” until they think it benefits them to be out. They’re narcissistic dipshits. The witches against patriarchy subreddit is the worst, full of “I’m trans” posts. Can’t women have anything? I finally told my husband the other day I don’t even feel like “respecting pronouns” anymore, they’re men, they act like men, they’re self centered mentally ill people with fetishes who are destroying female spaces. Them and their little TIF army too. To me they’re cross dressers, which I’m actually perfectly fine with, I think people should express themselves however they feel most comfortable, but the whole language circus has completely made me devoid of empathy or care. I don’t care about them. I wish they would just shut up more than anything, keep it in their trans specific subreddits and leave everyone else alone.

Hell yes to this. Fuck pronouns. I’m beyond tired. I’ve lost countless friends. At this point I don’t give a fuck. I live in reality and I refuse to participate in your delusions. Not my job, not my prob. My fiancés brother is a TIM. We’re respectful, but even he knows we don’t buy into the bullshit. So when we come to visit his fam, him and his hostage of a wife, don’t come around. I couldn’t care less.

Witches vs patriarchy is the worst handmaiden sub. They are always on there being fawned over 🤢

There was a post a few months ago, middle aged guy, boring British office worker looking type of guy, posted a pic of him with his eyebrows waxed, bit of red lippy, Nan hairstyle, and Mrs Bouquet dress, saying how he’d just gone out in a public place as a woman. Got lots of upvotes and pandering. Hit the front page. I went through his history, and six months prior he’d been a normal middle aged guy, talking about cars and other things he was into. Suddenly he became trans and started talking about wearing womens clothes. He reckoned his wife was supportive and that she and (other family relative I can’t remember) went out with him dressed as a woman to a restaurant and the waiter addressed him as a woman. He said next step was to come out at work. A few days later his account was gone along with the posts. It was a ten year old account so I was really surprised, but my theory was, his post became too popular and real life people saw it and his little side fetish was going to become public knowledge. Very odd.

THANK YOU!! I was actually thinking of making a post about Witches Against Patriarchy and how one post was like "Trans women witches are valid UWU" And I'm just sneering in disgust. Because even a "evil" thing such as witches and paganism was briefly reclaimed by women as a "women only" thing by the very witch burning TRA's themselves, and then these c-sucking TIM's come in and demand something that should be female only. Not saying men weren't branded as witches but it was PRIMARILY a female thing... Like you said, "Can't women have anything?" Only thing that they won't touch is being called a "terf" which makes me kinda want to brandish it like a stake. "You took everything from us, but you can't take this...we wear the scarlet letter but we wear it with pride because we know our realities" I could go on forever about this shit...I wish they would leave us alone...they are like bronies but WORSE. Pure unfiltered anooying.

Yes, the appropriation of witches drives me fucking crazy. I saw a few minutes of a recent RuPaul’s Drag Race episode where a “transwoman” drag queen (make it make sense) had a light up dress to symbolize being burned at the stake as a witch. He cackled horribly and the whole thing was just so deeply offensive. I said to my family member watching it, “That’s pretty fucked up…no trans women were actually burned at the stake. How is that not appropriation?” It actually made her stop and think. She had no response. One step at a time, one step at a time…

I'm in the same boat as you. I used to care about them in legitimate situations where they were being harassed, threatened/killed etc. I was fully about live and let live. But recent changes they have "enforced" have made me do an about face... I never could get on board the pronouns BS... and I'm glad my work doesn't force it. I find their "legitimate" adoption of the word women offensive. They aren't us. And given how our voices are silenced everywhere ... I no longer care about them or their issues anymore.

I think the issues they have are their own mental health issues and that society has to stop pandering to the weird cult zealots of the church of trans.

That's the only sub I got banned from (aside from an automatic ban from offmychest for commenting on trueoffmychest, before I even knew what the deal was with those two), the rest I recused myself from willingly as I saw the way things were going on treddit.

I went to a subreddit for a union and there was even a “are trans women welcomed here? uwu” post there! They just love to hear people grovel over them. I’m convinced those “am I welcomed here?” posts gets them off too.

Argh those are such a pet peeve of mine too! Every single sub says RIGHT ON THE FRONT PAGE that trans people are welcome, you already know you’re allowed. And why do those posts get so massively upvoted and awarded? If anyone else asked about a clearly published rule it would get downvoted to oblivion for wasting everyone’s time.

They ask that at least twice a week in the girl gamers subreddit. That shit is so annoying. It says right "about sub" that they are welcome AND in the rules. And then you can tell that many posters, including both other TIMs and handmaidens, also get annoyed because rather than joining in the endless performative welcome parade, they will simply tell the person to read the sidebar.

They/their handmaidens also constantly claim that "well, we/they still feel the need to ask even if it's in the sidebar because most women's subs aren't trans friendly! It doesn't hurt to make someone feel extra welcomed!!" Like, where are all these trans exclusive womens subs? Please! I want to find them. It's just a straight up lie. Either they love seeking attention or they don't bother to read the sidebar (which is incredibly typical male behavior -- read the instructions dudes!).

Yes, because it’s the validation they desperately crave. I think they all needed more hugs as children.

Attention validation seeking behaviour - these people are not mentally well.

I'm in a couple hobby subs when the comments are starting to fill with complaints of "can't we just sticky these all into one welcome post? they're getting exhausting."

And then handmaidens will chime in with how these posts are needed because it's just so Dangerous (tm) out there for TiMs and argue to let them stay up...

I just want to talk about my hobbies y'all.

Yeah its frustrating and the handmaidens jumping through hoops trying to justify it is embarrassing.

Look, if TIMs just want to be "seen as regular women uwu" why do they need to scream their transness from the rooftops of every single subreddit?

TiM: "I'm just scared I'll be demonized and will get kicked out unless I announce myself first UwU"

Every other poster: "...sir, all we post are pics of scarves and finished crafts"

[–] hmimperialtortie AGP = evil 6 points

I wish these filthy pricks were demonised and kicked out. Of everywhere.

Also regular women don’t get accommodations and people don’t coddle us. There’s no respect or even pretend respect. Lol nobody kowtows to a real woman

And the opposite happens. If a woman puts "btw I'm a woman" in her post, she will be flooded with sexual harassment, "tits or gtfo" and creepy messages.

[–] jvsmine 70 points Edited

same. I downvote all of it joyfully ☺️

I kind of had a feeling I wasn't the only one😂

I do too!

Me too. It's always in some discussion where it's completely irrelevant and they're all "look at me and give me attention and say I'm a woman! Never mind the actual relevant discussion going on, look at meeeeeee". They bring nothing to the actual debate, so I downvote. Easy.

It's especially jarring in the women's subs (twoX and WvP), where the women are currently railing at losing their rights, and the TIMs are all posting selfies and looking for ego-validation while happily ignoring the attacks on women's rights going on. Those are also an instant downvote. Honestly, they can get out of there, they don't belong, and their posts make it extremely obvious too.

I do too. We can’t comment or post anything remotely critical without being banned, but downvotes are anonymous. When enough of us do it, the contrast between all the comments being pro-trans but also being heavily downvoted is incredibly stark.

The message becomes clear: nobody likes this, but nobody can speak up about it either.

Its refreshing to see transposts with a negative score or one of the top results when sorting by controversial. A lot of the comments are still very pro-TRA but it gives me hope that the tide is slowly turning.

But then they just say the post is being brigaded by anti trans trolls. They can’t accept that maybe most people just feel a certain way but can’t say anything because they’ve culturally policed them into fearful silence.

They then go on to make posts about all the downvotes and what a serious problem it is. Go outside.

Back when I used reddit I got scolded by some auto-mod bot for "upvoting harmful content" and it was just like, terfy posts on tumblrinaction or something. And then I noticed my votes stopped counting. Like I would vote in some obscure community that had 2 subscribers, on a comment that had zero activity, 0 points, I could downvote, and then it would jump back up to 0 or 1, and if I undid my downvote and hit upvote it would jump up to 2 points. On a comment where there's zero chance anyone else was interacting with it, so I know it was just me. I hate reddit lol.

edit: I found a copy of the message you get. I didn't take this screenshot but I got this exact message once. https://i.imgur.com/wxbGxwH.png

That's pretty insidious. Smells like censorship/propaganda tbh

It’s manufactured consent for the social media age via big tech companies. Suppress opinions or facts they don’t like while pushing what they want.

Can mods see your upvotes and downvotes?? That’s totally news to me :(

Admins can, and they have bots that track it. I found a copy of the message you get. I didn't take this screenshot but I got this exact message once. https://i.imgur.com/wxbGxwH.png

Yeah I've noticed the same with my votes sometimes, and it hasn't been cases of other users upvoting at the same time as I was downvoting because it would also happen in posts that were months old in subs that got little interaction.

I haven’t posted on Reddit since Ovarit started up, but I thought I had heard that downvotes on trans posts were being monitored and penalized somehow? Hope I’m wrong.

Not really— I mean occasionally people will edit their posts or comments to go “OMG LOOK AT THE DOWNVOTES U GUYZ R SO TRANSPHOBIC!!1!”, but other than that there’s not really anything they can do. They can’t tell where the downvotes come from as far as I know.

I thought I had heard the mods were monitoring downvoters and eventually banning them. Glad to see I seem to be wrong.

That’ll be the next thing they try, I expect - they already delete every post and comment that doesn’t bow down to TRA ideology, downvotes are pretty much the only remaining way express even slightly dissenting opinions. Until then though, I’ll keep downvoting :)

I heavily downvote them, and I'm still there. Granted, I did make a separate account to go all radfem on reddit, to keep my main safe. I fully expect to be banned at some point.

I’m subscribed to a lot of trans subs for the sake of finding receipts and documenting their misogyny, homophobia, and general insanity, and while I’m at it, I also downvote everything I come across because I know they’re obsessed with karma farming. It ain’t much, but it’s honest work.

I downvote it automatically because if you're posting in a baking group and your title is like "Made this cake! Transwoman btw" I am 100% certain that you're just begging for attention/upvotes because wtf does your gender identity have to do with anything? Go away or keep it to yourself.

Imagine doing that “I made this, I’m a woman by the way” people would think that’s weird.

People lose their minds if OP even hints they're a woman. "Attention whores*.

Or "I'm gay btw" or "I'm black btw" or literally fucking anything else. Unless it's something like "I made this awesome cake! I'm disabled and it's the first time I've been able to do it" then it makes fucking sense. Like an actual accomplishment. Being an uwu twanswoman does not make your cake any more special. You sound like a child. Fucking dipshits.

Ohhhh because it has to do with EVERYTHING apparently. Literally their whole identity and everything they are, they say, they do. It’s almost as though they’re not happy within themselves and it has nothing to do with gender but what would I know.

Any post or comment that mentions trans I automatically downvote. I don't support the proliferation of that cult anywhere.
