TwoX subreddit is full of transitioning pics. When I posted wondering why those were allowed since "cis women" aren't allowed to post selfies (you are redirected to trollx or other subs) I got banned. Women can't even wonder why there's suddenly selfies in a sub that's not meant for those without getting banned

Meanwhile there's some posts about pap smears, about terminating a pregnancy, about male strangers telling women what to do, about health issues as a woman, etc and all of those posts have less than 200 upvotes. But MTF pics have 15k upvotes and counting.

I'm so upset that women would prefer to respond to a MTF pic post than to give support to a young girl going through health issues? Or to participate in the post talking about the best anti nausea period remedy? You know, stuff we women deal with? It's so upset seeing this. How could we let it go so far? This is insane.

It's just a microcosm of what we're seeing on the larger scale. Here we see the superficial vanity of men eclipsing the material needs of women.

[–] ArmyofMe 69 points (+69|-0)

I didn’t even know selfies were normally banned. This is ridiculous

[–] Toragana 72 points (+72|-0)

Wow. Yeah trans can do anything they want. So much for women's free "pussy pass". It's Teflon Trans.

Hey, unrelated but is your name a Björk reference? I love her! Vespertine is my favorite album of all time.

That makes it even worse and more pathetic. wow

It may well be other men. And bots. That crowd are infamous for sockpuppets and brigading.

[–] Womancup 48 points (+48|-0)

Also, many women got banned and can't comment

[–] starry 10 points (+10|-0)

This is the main reason that I refrained from reporting every single selfie (trans or not, but we all know TIMs are the only ones posting selfies there for validation). So I'm just downvoting selfies and upvoting everything else atm...

It's clearly a co-ordinated brigade in celebration of Women's History Month.

[–] girl_undone 29 points (+29|-0)

Men have finally prevailed in their ceaseless attempts to derail Women's History Month.

the top comments on the lesbian subs before they were taken over were brigaded upvotes. The top comments on the "terfy" gay subreddit: "askgaybros" is of a brigaded and upvoted post on how the sub is "super transphobic" for not wanting to have sex with straight women.

Theyre brigading. And you want to know how they'll become mods? gays and lesbians know how lol 1. "this sub is ALARMINGLY white!" (it's not) 2. im THREATENED for my safety...i dont feel SAFE! (these people laugh and issue rape threats to lesbians because lesbians cant have sex with a straight man in a wig) 3. mods will bow down to charges of racism. it'll be a "scandal" and someone will step down. 4. now, do you replace them with a black woman? NOOOOOOOOPE. Theyre replaced by an AGP and all the other mods are white women so theyre constantly "under check" and "regulated" to know their place.

These transexual assholes can only infiltrate white spaces. Not because of the handmaidens but because they just accuse everyone and everything of racism left and right and try to build "coalitions" against the straight women using divide and conquer. If you havent noticed, black lesbian spaces (which are incredibly small and insignificant) havent been touched AT ALLLLL.

Black gay male spaces havent been touched AT ALLLLL.

They spear their way in with the racism charges.

They've been trying to incite "transphobia" on Twitter and on LSA. They've been trying but to no avail.

[–] T4Pol 9 points (+9|-0)

Yes, I think so too. I commented just now to also point out that during the pandemic women are particularly burdened by home schooling, work and house chores, leaving little time for leisure activities, which can include browsing and interacting on reddit.

[–] serfnterf 55 points (+55|-0)

Usually they delete posts asking about pap smears, birth control and unusual menstruation because they say they're not a medical subreddit. Women making those posts get told to see a doctor in person. Even when it's just women asking if other women have experienced the same symptoms on Birth Control or how they treat period pains or what medication they take for PCOS.

Funny how any mention of physical symptoms specific to womanhood are redirected to IRL doctors but if someone asks about transition they're validated and told that they're absolutely trans (people get banned if they don't hugbox). Yet the latter is supposed to be a physical condition in need of a ton of subsidized and serious medical treatments.

[–] Veneficca 20 points (+20|-0)

Wow, I didn't know that. What an absolute farce that place has become.

[–] serfnterf 15 points (+15|-0)

You can look at the moderators' comment histories to see which posts they're removing. I remember u/emnii deleting a lot of posts that were genuine questions from women about things like PCOS or birth control.

TwoXChromosomes always replies to deleted posts to inform them why they're being deleted which makes it pretty easy to see what they're censoring.

If they comment "rule 4" it means that a post is not "relevant to women" by their standards.

I got banned from a fandom reddit for "giving medical advice" for mentioning Mental Health First Aid as being a valid reason someone might post in a "bad person/controversial" subreddit. I appealed because the fandom subreddit doesn't have a rule against providing medical advice, but even if they hadn't done so, I wasn't giving medical advice. They ignored it and never responded.

I have a feeling it was one of the new moderators of the subreddit - they'd pulled in "power mods" to help them moderate.

It's weird, because it was on my account that I never use to post on controversial subreddits - it's my polite, super considerate, walking on eggshells account that won't post on things even if they hit ALL, because "the subreddit might be a bad one" and you are just supposed to know which ones to avoid.

I got banned from a fandom reddit for saying that JK Rowling shouldn't be called a worthless trashcan of a person. I wasn't even defending her, I just said that we shouldn't call people that.

Most communities eventually end up being moderated by an unhinged (and likely unemployed) social reject who has limitless time to spend online. No sane person moderates 200 Reddit communities. Gives them an opportunity to power trip, create fantasy alter egos, and escape from their real lives.

I really want to help them to find Ovarit but I know I'll get the ban hammer right off the bat.

Like I keep saying, I have a prophecy that one day liberal women are going to look around the room for a women's space/group and go, "wait a moment, what the fuck is going on here?"

TwoX is going to turn into Actual Lesbians. It's going to be a fucking joke. And the trans usurpers are going to wallow in despair as the women have run away from them again.

You can just PM them. Mods can't prevent you from PMing people.

[–] BloodOfTheRaptor 12 points (+12|-0)

Yeah. I wish we could advertise because anyone that may be interested in coming here will get their post deleted or banned too fast.

[–] babayaga 17 points (+17|-0)

You could try posting a link to Ovarit and telling people not to look at it because it's far too transphobic.

[–] JimminyCricket 2 points (+2|-0)

lol jesus christ. We sound like refugees. " i want to speak to them of our island..but alas, i will be exposed and banned for mentioning the forbidden place".

[–] shveya 41 points (+41|-0)

The blind narcissism and entitlement of these men is wild. It also never fails to shock and amaze me just how subservient and groveling the handmaidens are.

[–] BloodOfTheRaptor 28 points (+28|-0) Edited

I have a theory that a lot of the groveling is fear of being cast out of the group and also fear of retaliation from the trans men. It's hard to lose your community and have to start over again. Many of these women just don't realize that has already happened and it's been replaced by a faux community while they weren't looking.

[–] shveya 13 points (+13|-0)

That makes a lot of sense, they probably feel like they have to cheer these guys on to avoid being harassed or canceled.

[–] PumpkinSpiceVagina 15 points (+15|-0)

I honestly wonder how many of the handmaideny posts are from actual women and not just trans sock puppets they make to upvote and praise their own shit. Like all these comments that say stuff like, "Ciswoman here, and I love love love all your beautiful transformation photos! It makes me so happy to see your gorgeous smiles as you live your best lives as your authentic selves blah blah blah sickly sweet vomit." I could certainly see some women making posts like that occasionally but the volume and frequency and the fact that the posts are so similar makes me go hmm.

[–] shveya 11 points (+11|-0)

I bet you're right, all of the top comments on the AGP invasion posts are stuff just like that. "Yass queen those makeup skills are on fleek, I'm so jealous of your stunning feminine aura uwuwuw"

[–] haruspex 5 points (+5|-0)

I saw some lady comment "yass momma" on one of the XX transition photos lmfao, like they don't even see the irony! it's completely insane!!

[–] JimminyCricket 3 points (+3|-0)

the brigaders on "askgaybros" seem to have lots of puppet accounts who try to amplify their messages. Remember, these people have no lives and the internet is 99% of their entire identity. They have time for these things.

[–] valiee 31 points (+32|-1)

Seriously, I think MtF posts should be banned. They can go to any trans subreddit and post their progress there and be supported too. I really don't get why they're on r/TwoX; they shouldn't be because the subreddit clearly isn't for them and there are women facing important issues. There are plenty of trans subreddits, stop butting into a subreddit clearly meant for cis-women and maybe AFAB people(?) - it's just creepy and rude.

[–] babayaga 16 points (+16|-0)

they shouldn't be because the subreddit clearly isn't for them

You're new here, right? These guys are autogynephilics. They get an erotic thrill out of pretending to be women, and that's why they seek out female-only spaces for validation even when they have plenty of trans-friendly and trans-only spaces.

[–] valiee 4 points (+4|-0)

Yep, I'm new here. It's the first time I hear of the term autogynephilics. I just read the article and it clears up a lot.

[–] starsstorm 16 points (+16|-0)

I mean if you made a AFAB sub, they’d get it banned or invade anyway

[–] Carrots90 8 points (+8|-0)

Maybe not if we made it super degrading like ‘uterus havers’

[–] GigaBabe 2 points (+2|-0)

I have a serious issue with women being treated like second class citizens in spaces like Reddit. This fake binary where of you want to talk about women's issues but not trams focused issues you're a transphobe works for those with some kind of complex. Many of us know what hate is. Caring about women's issues isn't hate.

The fuck do I know about transitioning and why would I go to a women's space and not get to talk about what affects my health as a woman while obsessing about surgeries to transition?

It's off topic and this is bullshit

[–] cardinalvirtue 19 points (+19|-0) Edited

God, this makes me so mad. And the worst thing are the real women over there who don't even know that TIMs are making the rules over there, judge, jury, executioner. I hope that many of them peak.

[–] sonic_fiXXation 16 points (+16|-0)

The thing with the votes is people upvote things that have already been upvoted a lot. It's conformity. You can see it for yourself because if you post a comment early you get more upvotes than you would if someone else's comment already has the majority of upvotes before you commented. So if a transitioner posts their selfie and a bunch of other transitioners upvote it, most people who see the post will also upvote it, because the rest of the community support it. What I'm saying is I don't think it's that they necessarily support the TIMs more, it's that they support their own online profile more, and that's governed by what's popular, because people trust the crowds judgement - especially online - because they're building their popularity, their history, their place in the community, and as we all know: their own opinions could get them ostracised.

I'm not suggesting people are thinking "I wish I could like that post instead", I'm suggesting the posts they like matter much less than the persona they're portraying with their online behaviour. And that's really shallow, but I think that's what growing up online does to people.

[–] Verdandi 6 points (+6|-0)

Basically the number one way to build karma is to be the first comment on an article. It doesn't matter what you say, like, at all.

[–] elscat 14 points (+14|-0)
[–] Kevina 13 points (+13|-0)

I'm not so sure that's it women who are upvoting those posts.
