This circle is for:
Links to feminist and gender critical articles, blogs, and similar text content that is about gender or the trans identity topic
Links to news articles or mainstream opinion pieces that are relevant to gender critical feminists
Original text posts and polls that start discussions about gender/trans identity topics. Many things can be submitted as part of a text post starting a conversation, if the poster puts in the effort to make a good text post – this is a very expansive category.
We're still seeing a lot of linkposts that go against our rules. We hate removing these, especially when they have a lot of discussion, but leaving them up confuses people about what kind of content this circle is for and what is allowed. So please read the circle rules before posting, please report posts that break the rules, and please understand that if you get into the discussion on a post that is breaking the rules the whole thing will probably be deleted.
Do not: directly link to misogynists and idiots talking on the internet or anti-GC or misogynistic opinion pieces
This is not a circle for linking to stupid/misogynistic/pro-gender things people say on social media, including reddit and twitter. It isn't a place to link to conversations you're having with idiots elsewhere either. We also don't allow link posts to articles that are anti-GC or misogynistic. However, you can make a text post about stupid/misogynistic/genderist things people are saying somewhere if you write a good summary/description, your criticism of the content, and include an archive link to the conversation.
Do not: link to or post memes, screenshots, or most images
This is not an image circle, though other circles are. Almost no image posts belong here. An infographic might, but no screenshots or memes do. Check the sidebar for a list of other circles where this content may belong.
Do not: post videos as link posts
We do not allow direct linkposts to videos, and we do not want most videos here at all (none of the mods like watching videos to make sure they are in line with the rules). Other circles permit video posts, including /o/FeministVideos which is probably where you want to post. We will permit text posts about videos that include a link to the video if the text post summarizes/describes the video so everyone has an idea of what it's about without having to watch it. However, if you post a Ben Shapiro/Blaire White/Jordan Peterson video we will still remove it unless you really write a very good conversation starter that makes it relevant to feminists. We do not exist to boost sexist men.
Depends what kind of content you're talking about.
Your points don't actually address the reasons for the rules. It's not about helping individuals not support Reddit if they don't want to. I don't know what else to say.
I know it's a PITA on mobile, and I wish I had a better idea of how to deal with that.
I agree. I don’t have a desktop or laptop, only an iPhone and iPad, and loading anything to archive sites is a nightmare. I also find they rarely save pictures, which wipes out the point of a lot of links. I only use them for reading all the blasted sites that demand registration or turning off your ad block or paying.
Great reminder. I hate giving misogynists clicks.
