That’s it. I just wanted to vent. Every single person on that post was criticizing the “teacher” and probably thinking the exact same thing: this is a perverted GUY with a sad fetish. But the moment I call him anything other then she or they, and correct others by saying this is a male, I get banned for being a bigot. I’m an illustrator and I rely on reddit to get my freelance work. But I’m officially done. I’m never getting on that app ever again.

You spoke against the Cult. Witch! Heretic! Blasphemer!

I (re)welcome you: You don't have to pretend here, in fact, we insist you do not. That creature you were discussing is a whole ass MAN, who knows exactly what HE is doing.

I self-banned when they removed GC. It is no place for women.

it certainly feels good to know there’s still sane people in the world. thank you.

I was banned off twoxchromosomes for saying it was modded by men, then my whole account was banned off the site the next day. We should all post what we said to get banned off that toxic AF site its a badge of honor lol

Y'know, Reddit was almost a complete bastion of free-speech (one of it's founders was a free-speech absolutist). Then he killed himself and his buddy (who didn't care for free-speech) handed over control to like-minded people.

Edit: Sorry, I wasn't responding to you specifically (stupid phone...)

lol me too. I wrote: "This is a man with a fetish wearing a sex toy to school. This is wrong. the fact that the teenagers had to reach out to a feminist news outlet to get any attention paid to this is insane. The adults did nothing so the students were left with no choice! The kids are NOT alright." Then I replied that the school board said he's not trans, so the people calling him she/her are misgendering (like I give a fuck, but I hope they feel a lot of guilt and remorse).

Wait, he doesn't even claim to be trans?

I read that somewhere yesterday, but the article on reddit says he is trans, or so the mods told me:

Mods "If you bothered to read the article, you'd know you're wrong on this." Me: "I don't really care. The whole concept of misgendering is stupid and he's a man, regardless of whether you lie or tell the truth. Men are not women. that's insane."

Let's see if I get a permanent ban.

I got a permanent ban simply for saying I wanted to be called a woman instead of a uterus-haver. You're probably about it get it for that!

I'm not on there, but maybe it would make an impact of some kind of all GC people to self-ban/boycott en masse in a dedicated thread somewhere?

Reddit was taken over by trans people. The growth of the internet is not over. A new network or several of them will come soon and Reddit will deservedly fail.

You think that’s bad. I just got banned from a thread in fourthwavewomen on Reddit because I used a common idiom ‘they need a kick in the pants’ in reply to a comment about men in China not wanting feminine hygiene products offered on a train concession. I said

It’s literally the most forceful thing I’ve said on Reddit because as soon as they figured I was GC they basically stalked my account it seems. I think this report was the auto moderater though. I’m permanently banned now. I’ve reported numerous comments suggesting women deserve harm or hate speech towards indigenous people and they always dismiss it. Who are the freaks running Reddit anyways?

I can't believe that a disgusting manly male is sexually harassing schoolchildren with his giant plastic udders, and we still have to pretend this is a real laydee.

And don't forget, too, that mainstream media have effectively banned any and all contrary opinion. Not just Reddit. (I, too, left when GC was taken down and haven't been back.)

Same here. GC was the only sub worth reading, and I’m glad to see that GC is revived and flourishing here without the TRA psychotics.

I came across this excerpt online. I guess he did a show about it yesterday. Why does the only guy on tv talking about it (correctly and accurately) have to be Tucker Carlson?

EXCERPT:

CARLSON: “It’s hard to believe this is happening, but we’re sad to tell you it’s not just happening in Canada. You see versions of it everywhere, including in this country. And to be clear what this is, children being used as props in the sexual fantasies of adults. Children being used as props in the sexual fantasies of adults. Are you okay with that? Is any normal person okay with that? It is completely wrong. It is utterly outside the bounds of what is acceptable. It’s not a close call. And yet, suddenly, teachers — licensed teachers — are bragging about it on social media.”

Why does the only guy person on tv talking about it (correctly and accurately) have to be Tucker Carlson?

Because he is a guy. That is why

I know you know. Not ‘splaining. Just seconding your voice

Reddit is lost. It was crazy to see so many controversial subs all being banned over this one single issue - even subs that survived all the anger/drama over Covid, Trump, Brexit, Gamergate, etc.

Can't think of many high-profile subs being banned over other issues. The Trump sub and FatPeopleHate are the only ones that really come to mind.

Reddit used to be a great place for actual discussion. It had its issues for sure, but you could at least discuss things without being silenced. Not anymore.

Par for the course.

So thankful for Ovarit. I've been repeatedly silenced on Twitter for tweeting the mildest of criticism.

Fun Fact: There used to be a time when critical thinking was applauded. Not anymore. Certainly, not with this crowd.

Right?? I remember a time when debate was welcomed,KKK members would go on talk shows and Bill O'Reilly would get into screaming matches with ppl he hated

Never thought I'd say I miss those times but here we are

This is out of left field, but I would love to hear Judge Judy weigh in on this.

It's gonna take a while, maybe even several years, but eventually we'll be vindicated and I for one cannot fucking wait to say I told you so

Right, on all score!

My days are instantly brightened when that rare public figure steps forward to call out the cult. Wish people had more spine.

People are apparently afraid to agree with common sense opinions nowadays, like men can't be women and operating on children's genitals for no reason is bad, because actual nazis believe those things. And if I'm understanding it correctly, if you have the same opinion as a nazi, then you too are a nazi 🙄

100%

The fear is real in TRA Opposite Land, where up is down, black is white, and wrong is right.

It's time this movement is exposed.

And of course we can't talk about the fact that it was Nazis who set the precedent for operating on kids for no good reason.

Time traveling Nazis would be like, "our you keeding me, seez ppl are clazy, wit der shopping off ze veenerschnitzel, yikes"

Burn the witch but make it ✨modern ✨ this dude clearly watches too much anime/ hentai and is involving teenagers in his fetish. Honestly I only go on reddit to go on sewing and crochet subs these days, I might just get rid of the app too since TIMs have colonised every “female” subreddit on that site.

I rage quit like 6 times...when TIMs took over my favorite MOMMY parenting subreddit. Then when they took over my yarny subreddits, then my feminist subreddits.

Finally did a final rage quit when "fourthwavewomen" banned me literally for posting on this site.

Fourth wave banned me for saying we shouldn’t lie about things that can be checked in 2 seconds on Google. (It was a stat about NFL salaries.)

I laugh as when they go down, the women will scatter and not be able to handle other women who disagree with them on feminist issues. The place is a huge echo chamber where you’re banned if you do not fully comply.

I thought fourthwavewomen was the better than that ? I get TERFy vibes from a lot of comments being posted there, but I have seen a lot of lib fems there too. Like I said I mostly go on reddit for sewing and yarn inspo.

shoot, I thought fourth wave women was created by and ran by an ovarette? 😱Is 4thwave no longer safe either?
