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)

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"
