Today is our Second birthday!

Thank you to everyone who has made this journey with us and contributed to this platform and the communities on it and proven that it’s not as easy to shut women up as some people would like.

Has Ovarit made a difference in your life? Are there any communities here or users here you’d like to celebrate?

I’d especially like to thank @grrrandma. She adds most of our software features and fixes most of our bugs and we wouldn’t have any of this without her. She’s a brilliant and tenacious programmer and problem solver and she inspires me so much. Thank you!

Ovarit has made such a notable difference in my life. I knew there were other people that were critical of things I was critical of but I found it was often surface level or the criticism ceased if I mentioned how girls' and women's issues are sex-based. I saw this often with "gender"/"trans" ideology also; I could not discuss this ideology to the extent I wanted to because people were not open to discussing it, really, they wanted concessions > acceptance > and adoption of it. I wish I would have found this website and joined sooner because I could speak of the pervasive issues for a good handful of months.

I would like to celebrate the creators of this site, the mods, the users, it is incredible that there is a women-centered forum where we do not have to bear males invading our spaces and where we can speak freely. I also love that it is not an-anyone-can-join-forum; I appreciate that you have to be invited and then have to reach a level 15 to generate your own invite codes (https://ovarit.com/o/Announcements/35404/we-raised-the-level-required-to-generate-invite-codes, I like the suggestions in this thread too!). Please do not make it similar to other forums or social media platforms and keep the account creation limited! Do the methods of requesting an invite code remain the same as the following: Saidit (https://ovarit.com/o/Ovarit/1979/answers-to-how-do-i-get-an-invite-code-and-other-questions), Spinster (@ Ovarit), Twitter (@ WomenAreOvarit), and, unofficially, a subforum to request a code on Pre***t?

Back to my gratitude: we can find resources, compile evidence, and speak of various topics (from sewing to the benefits of implementation of the Nordic Model (thank you @NordicModelNow!)) without misogyny, sexual harassment, and other nasty behaviours resulting of male socialization. Thank you all!
