I'm removing this post now that I've decided that the sub should be female-only, since OP is male. However I have copied the content here in the interest of anti-censorship.

What is the difference between this and /s/GenderCritical?

They are apparently really aggressive with censoring and banning

/u/ech too

I don't think they're that aggressive. But they do censor more than I believe is appropriate, and most importantly in a way I believe is not transparent to the users (as many subs on reddit did/do). /u/MarquisBoniface made this sub and offered it to me in that thread, and I haven't quite decided what I want to do with it yet, thus nothing's really here yet. I have some ideas though.

I am not aggressive about censoring or banning, but I understand why someone would want to vigilantly moderate a feminist subreddit on a mostly alt right site. To prevent it from filling up with shitposts, basically. That's what I was saying in the other thread.

Women often paint it as "oh we just need to remove male people who come here to stir trouble" and I definitely do see a lot of that. But my criticism wasn't that, it was with censoring female participants who were following the listed rules. There was a lot of that going on as well.

I just want them to be transparent about it: be clear about what's being removed, or stop removing the stuff you're not being open about removing. See this post someone just made about other content getting removed.

Yeah if they are moderating good faith, substantive feminist content for partisan reasons that's disappointing

Well what counts as "feminist"? Do you have to buy into the whole "woke" stack? That's kindof part of the problem imo.

r/GC had one rule I thought was very clear: we remove content advocating against the right to abort. I liked it; I knew on GC I would only hear one side of the story, not because no women believed differently for whatever reason well-considered or not, but because the space was setting that rule.

The others were more vague -- what counts as bigotry? And some content was removed that I didn't think went against any stated rule.

Definitely not. If you've read my other posts you know I am extremely antiwoke, lol. I suppose I meant: not antifeminist or totally off topic.

Thank you for the post, were you hoping for something in particular to happen with the sub when you offered it to me? I was just going to do what I wanted to with it.
