I've noticed that their content stream has dwindled as well. I browsed gendercritical for about a month before it was banned, so I didn't notice how active it was, but Ovarit produces 2.5 pages of new posts a day and they barely get content from that.

I think that they have to cherry pick stuff (which led to a lack of material for them) because most of Ovarit is coherent, makes sense to the normal person, and they don't want to accidentally peak the people of the subreddit. I bet some of those who used to search Ovarit/GC for posts to make fun at peaked (that's how I and most women I know got here) and it's only a matter of time until we get a post that says "I used to contribute to AHS/GenCyn and now I've peaked". This comment must hit a bit too close to home for the lurkers, and they won't screencap this for their subreddit because they know it's true 😉

Yes, I am one of them. It's like, once you actually start listening to women, you notice that you aren't so different from them after all and they're not the hysteric harpies they've been painted as. You know, a feminist classic, when you stop feeling like "you're not like other girls" because you start connecting with said girls directly instead of believing what others say about them.

Yup. I was skimming AHS one day, saw a long write-up on GC, headed over to see the "hate" for myself and stayed for the discussions and dissections of subjects that had begun to pick at the edge of my consciousness, but on which I hadn't had the time to do more reading and thinking.

The mockery was helpful in that regard - "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident"

Me too. I think I may have learned about r/GC from AHS, actually. Hard to remember now. But I had joined it because I heard they were trying to get TheDonald banned.

I'm glad you're here. I like reading your posts; you write clearly and thoughtfully, and your posts are a pleasure to read. :)
