The penis question has 400% more engagement. I wonder why

The polls being 5 hours apart do not make up for this disparity

Edit: LMFAO THIS IS DESPITE MONTY RETWEETING BOTH.
EVEN THE LIKE AND RETWEET NUMBERS HERE ARE TELLING.
3K on the male, and 200 for the female. 500 if I want to count his second separate retweet of it.

I FUCKING WONDER WHY NO ONE CARES TO VALIDATE THAT TRANS MEN CAN GET PREGNANT

COULD IT BE THAT FEMALES CAN'T ESCAPE THEIR SEX-BASED BIAS NO MATTER HOW THEY RENAME IT

The questions aren't even phrased equally. It should either be "can a woman inseminate another woman naturally?" or "can men have vulvas"? Pretty fantastic how men's rights are centred around their smelly cocks while the purpose of women is to be pregnant.

well, I hate to be that girl but... Women SHOULD be more concerned with the she-nis question, because that underlying idea constitutes a direct threat to Women's safety and integrity of single sex spaces whereas the pregnant transmen issue does not constitute any similarly direct threat of any kind.

The results are mostly like that because a TIM shared the poll and told his followers to go vote. It was largely "no" before

Yes, I'm aware. But the engagement numbers on each poll - 200K interaction on the male function, and only 45K interaction on the female function, despite both polls being started and shared at roughly the same times - tell the real truth. The truth that they can't fabricate, because no one gives a shit about the female sex.

I think the "can a woman have a penis" question was also the one that the MPs were asked and fumbled over, so it was sort of in the news.

To me the bigger issue is not which question they care more about, but how easily they can change the results. And it's easy enough to dismiss as dumb, just twitter results, who cares, but it's kind of scary how much "what those guys think" can reflect where society is heading... it's what the media, academia, rich people, tech, marketing, fashion, entertainment, say - not what the ones who dig ditches and sit on couches think. If they want to change the twitter polls, and they can, then what's the difference when it comes to wanting to shift the public perception of the issue? There are enough of them and they are well organized enough that they can group together and drum up the support to make their side seem like the majority.

They're not, but our side is not taking the issue seriously, not organized around it, not aware of it, often even confused about the fact that it's brought up - how many late night shows made jokes about how ridiculous the senate hearings were for asking Jackson what a woman was? They didn't joke about her being unable to answer, but at the fact that the question was even brought up, like that was the problem. I'm curious how they would look at a poll like this. If they answer no, what is Lia Thomas doing? But aren't the results, as you say, "dumb," if they answer yes? I mean, come on, right? So they dismiss the questions, as if that's the problem. But it's not, when there are people very directly claiming "yes" and getting away with it.

Are there many GC people on Twitter? I'm not and never have been.

Yes, many. But a lot of them keep getting censored and silenced and banned for having wrongthink on a near daily basis (the latest one seems to be getting banned if you mention Lia Thomas is male in any capacity).

Does it matter that one of those polls is pinned and the other is not? (I'm not really a twitter person.)

[–] ouvalemonde EmpressLadybrain 1 points Edited

No. Only one tweet can be pinned at a time so I assume they just picked one that had better engagement or something.

I dare talkRADIO to pin the pregnant man one and see if it makes any difference lol

LMAO of course the girldick one is pinned instead of the pregnant man one. Yeah wouldn't do much of a difference
