We’re not the only ones angry. LGBDroptheT is basically waiting for the timer to go down and then for the hammer to drop. A lot of people across Reddit are just posting “WTF” over and over.

I have no idea why it became okay for a such a narcissistic, irrational, anti-science movement to have gained a chokehold over free dissent - oh wait, because they’re backed by pharmaceutical money.

[–]100_percent_truth 58 insightful - 8 fun58 insightful - 7 fun59 insightful - 8 fun -  (25 children)

They banned /r/femalehuman a few minutes ago too. I'm so depressed.

[–]psychadelicqueen 37 insightful - 5 fun37 insightful - 4 fun38 insightful - 5 fun -  (10 children)

What the fuck dude? It was barely up for half a day. This shit is seriously silencing women if I’ve ever seen it before

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 40 insightful - 4 fun40 insightful - 3 fun41 insightful - 4 fun -  (9 children)

Sure is. They are calling it "evasion" yet the gcguys are still up in business. Why? It's a men's sub with that right in the name.

[–]100_percent_truth 9 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Wait seriously??? :O

[–]wendigalea 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

they'll probably take them down, too. this is less a anti woman purge as it is a purge of stuff that makes advertisers, investors dissatisfied.

[–]zephyranthes 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

It is an anti-woman purge. Investors and advertizers also hate tits (see: Tumblr porn ban), but rape and porn subs are up. Piracy is up. Men's subs are safer because troon rapists are afraid of men.

[–]wendigalea 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Why did they ban chapo, then?

[–]yishengqingwa666 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Are you unable to figure that out for yourself?

[–]wendigalea 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, I can speculate..but I wondered what other people's ideas were.

[–]Mouldy_Badger 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Because Penis, duh.

GCG is sitting on a grenade, we know, but we're open to anyone from our mother sub who wants to wants to organize there in the meantime.

[–]teelo 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Have you actually reported gcguys?

[–]WinterWoman 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Don't report GC guys, they are GC allies right?

[–]vijfkeervier 20 insightful - 1 fun20 insightful - 0 fun21 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

The people from that one sub about reporting 'hate subs' are actively looking for subs that they can report for 'ban evasion', so if anyone was thinking of creating a new topical sub on reddit: be careful.

[–]TwinkleTitsGalore 11 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Fucking r/AgainstHateSubs

Those guys have been actively working to eliminate every GC and radfem subs for months now. Welp, sooner or later all of Reddit is going to be one giant uberwoke/libfem/TRA echo chamber. Then they will get bored and complain that “no one wants to be around them” and we are “discriminating by not using Reddit anymore” It may sound silly and ridiculous now but mark my words. If they don’t have biological women and lesbians to bully into validating them, they aren’t happy. Same reason they won’t date each other, although they are constantly up in our tits trying to get us to date THEM

[–]leparsdon 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Oh yea, I saw the post about how they were celebrating the banning of GC. Saying that we needed reddit to "recruit". It's a complete joke over there. I am about to migrate from reddit completely. I can't stand it anymore.

[–]Amareldys 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Wait a few weeks. Or ... stay here.

[–]fuckingsealions 18 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 0 fun19 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

I am also depressed. I did some screaming in my car on my way home from work today.

[–]GConly 9 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It's just galvanized me into activity. I work best when massively irritated.

[–]100_percent_truth 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

My own partner posts pro trans stuff constantly. I told her I was depressed because Reddit banned 2000 subs today and I hate censorship. She asked why I hated censorship. And said well I'm sure they had a good reason what did they say? How do you know it was bad that they banned them? I had to change the subject. Like I said. I'm now super depressed.

[–]fuckingsealions 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Aw, I'm sorry. It's super hard when you disagree with your partner so fundamentally. I get it. I had a lot of arguments with my ex around the 2016 election about a lot of things.

My theory is subs like ours have a large membership but don't click on ads often? I know we're not one hivemind but it's been extremely rare that I've seen an ad I was remotely interested in... Because I'm not the target demo.

[–]100_percent_truth 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I even told her I was in the ACLU in college. She said well, but why are you upset? I think she was trying to bait me into an argument to be honest.

[–]yishengqingwa666 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Doesn't sound healthy for you, at all.

[–]Aletheia 66 insightful - 8 fun66 insightful - 7 fun67 insightful - 8 fun -  (22 children)

Just noticed what happened and came here immediately to check if there's a new sub... so glad this sub name has been taken by us and not by our "fans". Do you know where the majority has migrated? As in is there another platform I'm not aware of?

[–]33799 27 insightful - 7 fun27 insightful - 6 fun28 insightful - 7 fun -  (17 children)

A lot of people are joining Spinster. It's more of a Twitter-kinda format site (Mastodon?), and its community before this just happened ran a little on the older (and British) side, so it's not great, but it's something.

[–]Barmcake 28 insightful - 23 fun28 insightful - 22 fun29 insightful - 23 fun -  (6 children)

Oi! What's wrong with being older and British ? ;)

[–]gparmesan[S] 32 insightful - 11 fun32 insightful - 10 fun33 insightful - 11 fun -  (0 children)

You guys are taking us to school on dealing with TRAs, so not a goddamn thing (also your tv is so darn entertaining)

[–]Riva 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

My mum's older and British!!

I'm Canadian and my default morning news (thx Google assistant) is BBC so I guess I have nothing to say HAHA

[–]Aletheia 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks, joined it and also posted a link here. They can't silence us.

[–]Lady_Montgomery 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

Spinster is awesome. is me.

[–]100_percent_truth 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

What is this? An app? Site? Google didn't help.

[–]Lady_Montgomery 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Sorta like twitter. You sign up and go about your way. It’s really great imo. Doesn’t have an app though

[–]yishengqingwa666 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I found you, you're one of my favorite posters... swoon

[–]Lady_Montgomery 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Omg hi. Always love your post too.

[–]fgfmzknytfonveugto 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)


Mastodon remains committed to standing up against hate speech... committed to active moderation against racism, sexism and transphobia.

Mastodon apps are already starting to block Gab specifically. But given the nature of Mastodon, they can't actually stop Gab from doing anything. They can only make life difficult for them.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

it's also federated so more resistant to censorship. imo spinster is the way to go.

[–]onemoredaydream 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I made an account there (@ladycakes, come say hi!) and I can vouch that it is exactly like twitter, without the idiots and misogynists everywhere. It's awesome so far. I haven't made an older, British best friend yet but I am still hopeful.

[–]mushroomwitchhat 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I've tried using Spinster, but I've never used Twitter and can't get the hang of how the site works :(

[–]gparmesan[S] 12 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I don't know, I had an existing account here so I rushed to make one before it was taken over. Unreal. If anyone has other platforms, please add them.

Agreed i wish we could all pick one site to migrate to. So far Ive seen a few mentioned but Id like something that can have other topics too. Id love to delete my reddit account and just be done.

[–]leparsdon 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

some have gone to Spinster, others are taking refuge on gcguys for now.

Hi, glad I finally got to claim my old handle back after getting sitebanned from Reddit in 2018 for speaking out about Yaniv.

No they're not shutting me up.

LOL I never really left. I STILL talk about JY.

[–]TheGreatLeon 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

What is JY?

[–]WrongToy 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Their legal name is Jessica Jonathan Yaniv. for some useful info. At about 59:00 he commits the offense he was convicted for. has more info as to how he's sexting underage girls even into this year. He has been doing this now since at least 2011.

[–]ZeWombat 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

You asked the right woman about JY. WrongToy wrote the biography on JY. IIRC, that's what got WrongToy the ban?

[–]Jamiethiel2018 16 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

Damn glad to see you, WrongToy! I lurked mostly & you were banned before any of us could thank you properly for protecting women & children.

[–]WrongToy 13 insightful - 2 fun13 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

What really irked me is that I knew people had put down actual money they earned for the gold and plats I got at the end. I felt bad that they wasted their money.

And another thing if we're going to be blunt, I was told by some in that discussion and even some behind the scenes that I was making them nervous with the JY talk. Fact is everything I posted about them was already in the media and I included those sources too.

[–]Jamiethiel2018 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

God, I'm sorry to hear that. So much fear getting in the way. I take it these were private because I didn't see any of those comments.

[–]WrongToy 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Most of 'em were. It wasn't like anyone was against what I did, but they were worried about losing their sub. I really couldn't blame them but if you can't call out a freaking child predator why was I even there.

Anyway, JY ended up having most things go against him, and to say anything I just RTed or reposted the Morgane Oger essay or the Blaire White video. Because it's not like women can have, you know, a voice.

[–]yishengqingwa666 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yes, all that info was publicly available and they tried to call it 'doxing'. I remember that.

[–]hexchromosome 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

WrongToy!! You're an inspiration

HAHAHAHA, heya! I've never stopped either, bulldozer sister.

[–]LePesteKennedy 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Fucking right, Yaniv is an utter edifice of true and harmful nonsense

[–]leparsdon 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

Ooh please tell me about this!

[–]WrongToy 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

That's what happened in 2019-2020.

The Yaniv ballwaxing complaints first came to r/gc's attention in October 2018 when the Economist and GenderTrender referred to them. The British Columbia government put a publication ban but by then some papers had leaked and GT outed JY.

That happened on 11/9/2018. On 11/16, Wordpress shut GT down. On 11/18, the American Conservative magazine became the first, and one of very few, to talk directly about GenderTrender's shutdown. More press happened, and I chronicled all that. On 12/12, JY appeared before his City Council for LGBT+ funding for, I believe, hygiene products in schools. He also bragged that he had gotten Meghan Murphy banned from Twitter. That's the last I chronicled, because I got banned 12/18/18.

But yeah, what happened in 2019 was he'd go to the City Council every week. He declared he was a beauty pageant queen for Miss BC in March. He ended up eliminated but then showed up to take pictures of young girls with his mom in tow in May. When the pub ban went away in July, the Canadian and mainstream press started covering JY as did others. JY accepted invites from Alex Jones and was flattered that Trump Jr. wrote a bad tweet about him. He thought he was winning so he had a debate with Ms. Blaire White on livestream that got him arrested.

[–]leparsdon 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I remember the Yaniv nonsense. I can't believe they banned you for that.

[–]WrongToy 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was just a harbinger for Reddit banning all of r/gc and Glinner getting banned off Twitter for "men aren't women tho." Same as what Murphy said.

[–]covenofcovens 64 insightful - 2 fun64 insightful - 1 fun65 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

Thank you for setting this up. I am beyond angry that the one space in MY LIFE where I could talk openly about so many important issues has been taken away from me. I relied on GC to keep me informed, to keep me sane, and to remind me that there are other women out there who have my back (and will support me by both agreeing with me AND asking me tough questions when they don't).

[–]gparmesan[S] 42 insightful - 2 fun42 insightful - 1 fun43 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

They can take the space but they cannot take your thoughts and opinions. Now is the time to talk IRL with other women about how patently fucking ridiculous it is to not be able to state facts. Women are adult human females.

[–]kunt-vonnegut 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

You’re right. We need to network IRL.

[–]seminolehighlander 22 insightful - 1 fun22 insightful - 0 fun23 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree. I would go everyday to just read and occasionally comment, I got SO MUCH value out of it, from a variety of different perspectives, and it always strengthened my resolve. This just...strengthens my resolve even more, though.

[–]xxelinaxx 59 insightful - 4 fun59 insightful - 3 fun60 insightful - 4 fun -  (6 children)

I was just a silent reader on the GC sub but I'm furious it got banned. I really don't get it. It wasn't hateful at all. So now we can't even state facts anymore? I hate what the internet has become. Glad there is at least this place we can talk freely.

[–]gparmesan[S] 25 insightful - 3 fun25 insightful - 2 fun26 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Yep. Facts that hurt feelings are now banned. Start discussing this with your IRL friends. It's time.

[–][deleted] 17 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 0 fun18 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

In an interview with one of the people who helped create the internet, he said that it's become a really bad place for girls and women.

[–]peakitypeaked 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Me too. Browsing GC was my time of the day where I could read some sensible content and not feel like the entire liberal world had gone mad, being a left-leaning liberal myself. A major thing I liked about GC was that most people were respectful and that there were plenty of sane liberals there as well. I don't know if this place is overall a good thing (seeing as there's a video on the front page telling people to vote for Tr*mp) but at least GC is here. I'm glad there's still this corner of sanity in the world.

[–]Newt 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I was a silent reader too, and I felt really bereft to see it banned.

[–]yishengqingwa666 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm pissed beyond belief. Reddit is a colossal fuck-up of a site and if they want to pander to delusional, misogynist men, fine. I'm out. Right now I'm on Spinster but if this place takes off I'll be here. Gendercritical was my home on the internet for 2 years. I will miss all the great, intelligent women on there so much!

[–]fogellegof 17 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I feel the same! I cannot believe it! I also joined about 2 years ago and it was such an wonderful place. But I'm also glad that so many of us seem to come here very fast.

[–]Complicated-Spirit 51 insightful - 5 fun51 insightful - 4 fun52 insightful - 5 fun -  (17 children)

Just now found the update to their policy that lead to the ban hammer titled “Remember the Human”.

So men who scream “Die TERF” at women who don’t want to have sex with men (excuse me, women with penises) and send mass messages that consist only of the words “CHOKE TRANSPHOBE” to all women on a particular subreddit are humans we should remember, but we gender-critical women are not. Seems legit. /s

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 44 insightful - 4 fun44 insightful - 3 fun45 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

Exactly. When they say human, they don't mean women.

[–]fuckingsealions 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Also not "vulnerable." I mean HELLO.

[–]Anonimouse 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

New think says TIMs are more vulnerable. Mainstream news literally gave me a piece on the dangers of being a black trans woman today.

[–]fuckingsealions 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm older and I remember when gay people were mostly depicted as villains or at least completely one dimensional in television and movies. I remember very clearly when Matthew Shepard was murdered. There was a group who used to patrol the gayborhood in my city similar to the Guardian Angels in the 1990s. I grew up knowing that gay people were vulnerable historically, but as a woman I was never told en masse that they were in more danger than women as a group. It's like people who try to tell me that women's equality is "solved" now. Can't we agree that multiple groups have issues? This is so poisonous that we have to push back so hard instead of working together.

One of them literally refers to GC women as "NPCs".

Using video game terminology to dehumanize women... nice.

[–]Tom_Bombadil 70 insightful - 3 fun70 insightful - 2 fun71 insightful - 3 fun -  (6 children)

An important statement from the sidebar.

Women are adult human females. We do not believe that men can become women by 'feeling' like women.

It blows my mind that this is a controversial position.

You won't find too many people arguing against this here.

I actually found GC through anti-feminist subs. I started enjoying the subs mocking the pro-trans lib fems. Took a little bit of a dive and learned the other distinctions between radfem and libfem. I'm on the fence between both.

[–][deleted] 44 insightful - 2 fun44 insightful - 1 fun45 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

I'm actually shocked at how affected I am by the ban. I usually just lurk online, but GC was where I felt empowered to interact with other women, and grow confidence in myself. GC was part of my daily ritual. I really hope this version can become nearly as active.

[–]Heteronormativefuckt 18 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 0 fun19 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Agreed. I've been really upset now for 2 hours. This is such bullshit. We just watched reddit die. They did nothing about the Donald for 6 years while actual threats on people's lives were made on an almost daily basis.

[–][deleted] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

And that's why it's dangerous. It actually empowers women, unlike the neutered libfem ideology.

waves I'm from LGBdroptheT, Itsafetish and a lurker of GCrit.. I must admit, the writings are on the wall. A small fraction of the population has infiltrated, intimidated and squeezed into every space imaginable with the full backing of main stream media. Pushing aside or censoring anyone who disagrees. We are no longer allowed to have our own spaces if they can not be centered within. How pathetic. Fight on all, speak up no matter what. I will always stand with truth never feelings.

Isn't it crazy how quickly they were able to get into such a position of power that they can control speech on major internet platforms? Meanwhile, the women's lib movement started over a century ago, and here we are in 2020, still being prevented from speaking in the public forum. It's almost as if sexism actually exists, and TRAs are not the vulnerable minority they claim themselves to be!

This is like McCarthyism all over again. It's going to hit a collapse fairly soon, that's why they panicked and pulled this crap.

GC opinions are pretty much the norm in the bulk of the UK population. We think the media and politicians must have gone temporarily crazy.

[–]LePesteKennedy 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I'm a straight white dude and I've been reading a lot of Oavrit and listening to like minded podcasts and this shit is getting fucking ridiculous. I qualify myself as a leftist but when "my side" starts silencing science and calling any counter argument as transphobic or rightist, I find myself deeply frustrated

[–]xxRoguexx 29 insightful - 2 fun29 insightful - 1 fun30 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

[–]FlippyKing 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

There is a lot written about how the transformation of Europe from feudalism into either mercantilism or capitalism came with a change in the arts and culture. I think in hindsight it was an attempt to re-write history and cut off the past from the present. I think if people who are talking about "late stage capitalism" are right, then it is time to erase the past from the present. People using old definitions, like "woman", are being made obsolete by the social engineers. It was never about "hate", but I wonder what the world will look like when the obsolete realize what is going on.

(editing to add two things: 1) the above is very pessimistic sounding. I hope that changes. 2) I'm a refugee from GC Guys. I know I need to leave here, and I will ASAP. I feel like solidarity is needed right now)

Good point, the left has become so misogynistic I'm not sure the MRA ideology can be branded exclusively as a right-wing one anymore. And I feel politically more and more homeless...

[–]TheGreatLeon 20 insightful - 1 fun20 insightful - 0 fun21 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I know what you mean about feeling politically homeless. I’m probably considered right wing by most of you but I don’t like guns, don’t like religion, always hated the confederate flag and grew up Liberal in (Upstate) NY. But the Liberals I knew - the ones that fought against censorship, against labels and for actual equality - no longer exist. In their place are self-righteous terrorists that use intimidation and violence to try and silence anyone not at the top of the hierarchy. They are the majority now and have all the power. Yeah It should be quite obvious for everyone to see that by now.

[–]Anonimouse 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Yep. Took a political compass test and I'm far left anarchist apparently. But I've lost count of how many times I've been called an MRA and woman hater.

[–]Shinjin_Nana 19 insightful - 1 fun19 insightful - 0 fun20 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I think that's one of the reasons the MRA/TRA got a foothold so easily. Liberally political radical feminists trusted the left to have our backs and the moment men wanted something they shoved a knife in it.

I liked the left because they seemed more compassionate and didn't deny science the way the right did. But now I've come to realize that both sides will deny or embrace whatever science pushes their agenda, and neither side is compassionate.

[–]writerlylesbian 7 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 0 fun8 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

the radical feminist movement originally grew out of women who broke away from the Left as it was in the 60s and 70s because of the misogyny. There are quite a lot of us who know the Left have never been our friends.

In fact few men on the left would help us to achieve equality, so we never relied on them, all the reforms women got, women got by themselves and it was a very hard slog which is why women are so determined not to lose those rights now. Show me one man in history who fought for women's rights? There is'nt one and men should be ashamed that they happily held power over women...really ashamed and have never apologised in any country for it.

[–]Anonimouse 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I feel like suppressing women’s voices and women’s rights is a right-wing ideology. I’m just sad it’s seeped into some well known left wing social media sites.

[–]Marsupial 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Suppressing women's vocies is part of right-wing ideology but the trans movement is a left-wing ideology. Unfortunately there is misogyny on both the left and the right.

Nope. It was a total lefty reaction. Let's face it the RW and RW-aligned made up what 90 percent of the coverage on JY for one thing.

Hi. I'm one of the (many) GC users who recently joined r/GC. I never posted but I've been reading and reading and reading.

GC was the one purely female space in a misogynistic, porn-obsessed hellfire. It was one of the few mainstream spaces where women were free to speak their minds. I'm sick of supposedly educated people kowtowing to an insidious, nonsense fiction at the expense of women and girls.

Anyway. Basically, this is my intro post to say hello. I'm no longer going to be a lurker, wherever GC ends up. Reddit might be banned but my voice is not.

[–][deleted] 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

"I'm sick of supposedly educated people kowtowing to an insidious, nonsense fiction at the expense of women and girls." Right? It's even more depressing and disappointing when it's someone you can put a face to -- a celebrity, an acquaintance, a friend -- that espouses such ideas without (evidently) a second thought. I'm running out of silent patience with them all, too.

[–]riot_grrrl 19 insightful - 3 fun19 insightful - 2 fun20 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

We told guys to go over there almost since its inception. And now they are letting us go over there until we find alternative spaces like this.

I'm so mad, after JK Rowling tweets I slowly started to see more and more people peaking everywhere, even the comment section of Trans women are women posts of woke instagram accounts were full of sensible comments.

I even spoke about being GC with some in real life friends and they were open to listen and eventually agreed. I was feeling good, but now this?? This is bullshit and they won't silence us.

I just joined Reddit for the first time a week and a half ago for GC after the JKR thing and WTF. Is this in any way normal? That a sub would get banned without even warning the mods? I have still been reading through all of the information and had really been nervous to talk to my less progressive friends and family about gender ideology because I didn’t want to make them actually transphobic or judgmental (I live in a decent sized city in a red state and they probably don’t really know about any of what is being argued for right now) but it looks like I need to get over that concern. Guess the time for easing myself in is over.

[–]Anonimouse 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Is this in any way normal? That a sub would get banned without even warning the mods?

There's been a few historical purges, where they go through and ban a lot of subs at once with little warning. It usually aligns with advertising issues or change in reddit admin. And look, they have a new board member.

[–]yishengqingwa666 12 insightful - 4 fun12 insightful - 3 fun13 insightful - 4 fun -  (18 children)

HEYYYY. I got banned from Reddit some time ago for my misandrEEE (and facts ofc) and am on Spinster (come find me there!). What is this place? will they ban us here, too?

[–][deleted] 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (15 children)

AFAIK saidit has no connection to reddit other than the base code for the website. Different mods, different admins, different servers.

[–]yishengqingwa666 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (14 children)

OK... how can we know that they won't ban us here, too...?

[–][deleted] 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

Yeah, I would build a permanent home someplace more secure, but this is probably an ok place to regroup for today. I think spinster is the most secure we've got right now because it's federated.

[–]Aletheia 9 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 0 fun10 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Spinster is great and I recommend every user here to create an account also on that site, but imho we need another more open platform. A huge part of the reason r/GenderCritical grew as rapidly as it did, was because it was an open sub on a massive website and attracted a lot of curious people who simply ended up there randomly, or alternatively choosing to "hate-read" it after hearing a lot of negative comments and ultimately changing their mind. We need to create something similar. Gender critical websites are crucial (especially if a similar purge was to ever occur), but we need to reach out to new people - not (only) those who already share our point of view, or else all we have is a tiny echo chamber.

[–]gparmesan[S] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

I panic-created this in the moments after I saw the GC ban. If you are creating something more secure and robust I highly recommend doing so, I will help spread the word.

[–][deleted] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I'll let you know if I see or manage to make something. Didn't mean to not be appreciative of having a place here! This is extremely important.

I think it's important to know we may not be safe her permanently though. We should be looking towards more secure alternatives on the timescale of ... well, before the next election, if there is one, probably, at least.

[–]gparmesan[S] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

agree 100%. I am not super confident about it, but I knew I wasn't going to be the only one looking for the next platform. Better me than some smug gencyn prick getting to it first. But we need real infrastructure.

I don't think this place is safe long-term. last night the GC mods were sure they weren't gonna get kicked off because they'd followed the rules on reddit too. They've been getting better, but look at the way the admins treated people. Yes I'm grateful this place exists and I don't want to bad-mouth it for that reason -- but I also don't think it's a safe place long-term. imo.

Ultimately the only truly safe place is a GC woman with her own servers and know-how. I know I don't have either one of those.

mesh networking looks promising, imo, for any tech-ladies reading this.

nd take a different stance. That's a huge oversimplification but I'm just explaining that that's part of what the name means in this context.

I kind of agree, it is only a matter of time until the TRAs try to infiltrate the administration of this platform as well, and from then on anything could happen (as we just saw on Reddit). However, I don't think it is a reason to give up on the fight, the more people we reach and the more people see the censoring attempts, the more people we have the chance to wake up. We need sites like these, aside from our own.

We can sorta learn from the last purge. A lot of actually disgusting subs were banned, they tried to evade, and eventually moved to voat. Those who really liked the banned subs stayed around. The casual visitor made an account, complained about reddit administration, then ultimately went back to reddit after a few weeks cause all the other communities are still there. The admins there seem to realise that getting rid of reddit refugees means losing a lot of site traffic when you are trying to compete with something that big.

Unlike reddit, this place is open source so in theory they can’t be politically bullied and intimidated into suppressing free speech.

your comment on feministcurrent brought me to gc back last election cycle...

What is this place? will they ban us here, too?

They censor less than reddit so far but they do censor. I don't think this is a safe place to build long-term but I don't expect them to kick us off too soon. Some subs have been banned in the past, though this list is incomplete.

[–]Pulpfiction 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I'm absolutely furious. We are always silenced. It's disgusting. I have been a redditor 5+ years and this was the final straw for me.

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 11 insightful - 1 fun11 insightful - 0 fun12 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I am too, esp when you check out all the male subs still running that are violent (r/BanFemaleHateSubs) & how GCguys is still up! Tells you everything.

[–]radfemanon 12 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 0 fun13 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, looks like we need to start from scratch here.

Do you want some graphics for the sub page?

[–]flickumbicus 11 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Damn. Look at the numbers on the side. This place is BLOWING UP, and it's wonderful. 727 members, 122 reading now. They can try to silence us, but just like the suffragettes, we will not be denied!

We know where Reddit stands now. They're with the violent porn, kink, rape fantasies, and violence toward women subs.

Fuck 'em.

[–]Kluannoa 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Not just rape fantasies; rape promotion! Rape description! Giving each other tips on how to rape women! It's fucking disgusting.

I remember r/GenderCritical when it was only a couple thousand. And not that long ago, either.

Thanks for setting this up. There is a thread on twitter let's see if we can get #RedditHatesWomen #GenderCritical trending.

what a strange experience. watching people who have never read GC being overjoyed it's gone. & feeling the need to gloat about it. All while truely objechonable content lives on & the gloaters can't bring themselves to acknowledge this.

[–]anadventure 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Don't forget the - GC is permanently archived there: - you can search for certain dates.

Thanks for setting this up.

Only the main page, isn't it? Can't see full posts and comments ; (

Thank you for creating this. I've been away from GC for a while (health reasons) and I've just found it's been banned - someone mentioned it in a comment on the latest Posie Parker's video. I'm absolutely devastated.

Longtime lurker on the original reddit page but I am here to join you all on Saidit. Reddit obviously hates women and free speech. There was nothing violent or hateful about Gendercritical but because you all weren’t pandering, complacent or docile they deemed you as a threat. What utter rubbish! Truth cannot be stopped and gender critical ideology won’t either.

[–][deleted] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I, too, was a lurker, and only posted once on the main GC sub. After the ban, I deleted my account. There was nothing hateful about GC. Seeing some of the articles posted was ENLIGHTENING (the opposite of hateful). Informing people/women of events and activities against women is NOT hateful. Banning a sub meaning to inform and be a place of discussion for such topics, though...

Well, true colors were shown today. Now, even us lurkers come out of our closets. :)

[–]Justhere 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I couldn’t agree more! Here’s to more of us lurkers becoming more vocal and active! :)

[–][deleted] 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

I was STUNNED when I woke up from a nap after work, logged onto Reddit, and saw that GC had been banned, along with many of our sister subs (well, I shouldn't say 'our'... I was just a lurker! LOL). I deleted both of my reddit accounts, and feel such a connection to my new username here. This ban only helped me affirm that what I did earlier this year was right: I had a friendship with someone who came out as trans that ended 2.5 months ago over differences of opinion.

I've had a hard time moving on, but, like all bad times (and I know this banning was), we must all move on. Good things can come of this, even if the road is a rocky one. Stay strong, all!

Spinster is nicer than this place by far (and I don't think this is going to last, tbh), come on by and stay awhile.

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks for the info. I just created an account there, but I will need to get used to the layout. I'm definitely not familiar with it.

[–]Marsupial 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I'm not upset because I'm not surprised. Reddit following an anti-women agenda? That's pretty much what I expect from Reddit and Spez.
Frankly, I believe this is just another nail in the coffin for Reddit. More bans, more people leave. In come people with nothing more interesting to post than "happy cake day" and rehash memes along with bots spreading fake news and propaganda. Reddit going away isn't imminent, but just like Facebook it's going to get less and less popular with the young crowd and fade.

It is what it is. I'm used to women's voices being silenced and erased. This won't change any opinions. What we need to do is to make this place visible so that we can get people who've peaked in here when they google. Be gender critical irl, without being rude. Be gender critical in social media, do it with tact with without resorting to insults, be polite but firm. And when people peak, bring them here.

Hell yeah! This site is literally reddit 2.0. This is what it used to look like back in the day!

I'm ok with this. Fuck reddit and their bullshit high horse

GC lurker here. GC was a lifeline for me when my lefty-feminist "Can't we just be nice and all get along? And everyone just wants to pee in peace", view point clashed headlong into a trans individual in my life who set off a number of predatory red flags.

That along with women competing against trans identified men in sport sent me down the rabbit hole investigating what was going on and how it impacts women.

This community helped me critically evaluate my stance in feminism and evolve. I really love the women here and I'm glad the community is not lost.
