The Old Queen r/trollgc is dead, may she forever rest in power.
Long Live the New Queen at Ovarit: Radfemmery.
The Radfemmery is a place for users to share screenshots, memes, and gifs related to all aspects of radical feminism. We want to blur the line between being funny and serious, so that we can find humour and release in a world that's more often than not against us. Better to laugh than cry sometimes. All areas of radical feminism can be meme’d.
Moreover, The Radfemmery is where we gather round and share content from radfems/GCs meant for radfems/GCs. This circle is not for sharing the foolishness of TRAs, libfems, and men. That content belongs in o/TransLogic.

Tip: If you aren't sure where a post should go, check out o/ItsAFetish and o/TransLogic to decide whether or not those would be better circles to post in.
Rule 1:Appropriate Posts
Memes, screenshots, and gifs ONLY
NO text posts or copypasta.
NO linking to news articles or outside websites, even those satirical or sardonic in nature.
NO genital pictures, including neovaginas and neophalluses. Mastectomies and breast implants will be taken on a case-by-case basis.
Rule 2:Inappropriate Content
NO TiM/TiF/MTT/FTT SELFIES ALLOWED
NO TRANSFOOLERY FROM TRAS THEMSELVES. THIS BELONGS IN O/TRANSLOGIC
Rule 3: *The NO List*
NO misogyny, racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, ableism, ageism, colorism.
NO slurs: No n-words, misogynistic slurs (ex: bitch, slut, terf, cis), t-slurs or their derivatives (ex: trunacy, troon, Timmy, Timothy)
NO debating. Take debates to other circles. Do NOT debate tenets of various philosophies here. No derailing or sealioning. No DARVO.
NO template gripes.
NO conversion therapy (aka Genital Preferences are Transphobic) or other right-wing, conservative talking points allowed.
NO joking about any and all illegal activity that could actually happen
NO talking about downvotes. For the love of all that is female, STOP talking about downvotes. Mods are sick of it. No griping about how many downvotes your comment or post got, or another person's comment or post got. Those comments will be deleted even if they accompany otherwise good commentary.
Rule 4: Redactions
Reddit names do NOT need to be redacted, neither do Chapo Chat names, etc.
Do not redact the Twitter handles of TRAs and misogynists.
Verified users are always fair game.
FACEBOOK NAMES NEED TO BE REDACTED
We do NOT protect misogynistic men and their sycophants. Record any and all misogynies.
'as a man, I-' ok didnt ask dont care
Would you rather have them not identify themselves?
no, I would rather have them not on the site. For real tho, they always seem to lead with this line if some bullshittery is about to follow
There was one who was commenting on some it’s a fetish thread about TIMs invading female spaces and his line was “as a MAN I don’t understand this perverted desire of TIMs to be in female spaces !” And he didn’t realize the irony at all….of him invading a female space. It’s like he wanted asspats for not being a TIM but doing the exact same shit
It feels nice to see an admin post this. Haha
😂 You should see my miniature male series, hahaha 😇
Like, damn. Just lurk. That's more than generous. Feel the fucking vibe, sir.
I completely understand that it’s impossible for Ovarit to ban men from here.
The onus should be on men to just stop and think if they realllly need to add their voices to a women’s forum. Guys, you’ve got the whole rest of the internet, please just sit this one out, just read and learn.
And I'll say to the actual female users here, but males who invade spaces meant for us are not allies. They are already violating our space, already insulting us. Don't trust them and don't give them the time of day.
Men will never understand this though. They’re incapable of understanding that their maleness does not entitle them to everything. In the minds of most men, penis = ability to do whatever I want with zero introspection. The fact that they even feel the need to lurk around and comment and try to get asspats from women here is proof that they never learn. This is perhaps one of the website least friendly to men on the web and they still show up.
I don't know, it depends on the bloke.
I know there are a few from GC Twitter that lurk here but don't comment or post anything.
Lurking is one thing, going to the point of taking an invite code meant for a female and making an account when nobody wants you to is another.
I remember one of the first days I joined ovarit a man had posted a long essay about how great of an ally he was , and how he doesn’t understand why women don’t want men in their toilets/spaces because .... he knows we like to powder our noses. He legitimately thought he ate that hot take. Like dude .. this is deeper than makeup and bladder shyness. He obviously got 100s of comments calling out his bullshit. He clung on to that tone deaf take and continued to double down when women were telling why we actually didn’t want men in our toilets. The audacity of a man coming into a space women have carved out on the internet, to spout some uninformed , sexist generalisations and MAINTAIN the delusion that they are an ally.
But, her Nigel’s different. He’s a feminist.
One of the only times I've seen "Nigel" used correctly here.
I'm really glad we're allowed to say it.
I have only ever noticed one man and he was banned pretty quickly, and deservedly so. He boasted to me via DM that he had lots more invite codes and would just keep creating accounts but he must have run out and/or the mods here have extra supernatural powers because I never saw him again.
In general the men here must be quite discrete as I don't notice them and I'm not aware of them killing the vibe. If they want to lurk and learn, let them. Goddess knows they all need to learn.
Actually I would expect most men to find it terrifying here as there are so many women who are fearless, highly intelligent, extremely cutting and witty and most men would shrivel up and die under the Ovarit laser beam of truth and female power.
I once had a fully grown 40 year old man tell me he was a feminist AND a lesbian in the same scentence. I just gave him the look. I agree with most of you. Don't give the men on here the time of day. Just ignore them and they will go away 9/10 times. Men, do better. Get off this platform please.
I like the thought of us with our red Solo cups.
