I just got banned from r/lesbianfashionadvice because I commented on a thread about trans inclusivity in the sub.

A few of us -- including actually transitioning transwomen! -- commented that we're there for lesbian fashion advice for women. The trans commenter said something to the effect of "I don't want to see your selfie posts if you haven't touched a drop of HRT".

Apparently pointing out that this was a women-oriented subreddit for people with physically feminine features is transphobic, and poof banned. Completely taking over spaces that are supposed to be safe for women is misogynist and a major step backwards.

This just happened in the past week, but I was indeed a victim of the mass censorship a few years ago that nuked any sub or user that wanted allowed discussion about gender, sexuality, genetics, etc. and banned anything remotely TERF-ish.

I was banned from a lesbian subreddit for saying that I was excited to never touch male genitalia again (I had just come out to myself as gay and left a hetero marriage). BANNED FROM A LESBIAN SUB FOR NOT LIKING MEN. what the actual fuck

I was so bullied on reddit lgbt forums i started crying, apparently saying that women are more beautiful then men is bigoted, and not objective, I'm a bi who prefers women over men, I could not even believe what I was seeing. Banned from ainbow and lgbt forums and countless other forums within a day, really thought I'd find a community of likeminded people but found a bunch of passive aggressive bullies instead. I felt so emotionally drained from being bullied, I couldn't believe it.

I don't know if I was banned, but I can't post on r/transmenarewomen, whose name is misleading now.

Probably not banned, the sub is in "restricted" mode so only pre-approved users can post.

If you want a laugh, check out the sidebar on Old Reddit instead of New. The person who took over the sub didn't know how to switch back and forth, so the original creator's message is still there:

I am also banned from r/asktransgender

Banned from Grindr for opposing the aggressive trans push happening there. I challenge anyone to post anything that challenges the dogma in their profile & watch what happens. Rainbow Mafia will get you. We must fight this while we still can!

Hey Nutter, no post from this sub on the lgbtq+ pride "tuck-friendly" female swimsuit at target?

I bet people here would be none too happy to see female swimsuits designed for people with penises. Those who would go to public pools as well.

This thread is not a way to discuss posts you want to see. It's for individuals sharing about being banned/censored/deplatformed/shunned on social media or IRL for staying true to their LGBDTT-like beliefs.

Further off-topic comments here will be removed.

I get automatically banned on the Reddit app because I have argued too many times with the smug, snarky fetishy men on r/unpopularopinion's LGBT thread.

I come from reddit. LGBT subreddits are baby-proofed. Everything is offensive and trans issues plague every corner. I was not banned, but i got tired of being labelled transphobic for disagreeing with their attempts to redefine my sexuality around gender.

When i called out trans people calling gay men genital fetishists, i was told i shouldnt judge the whole group for a few extremists. I see these ideas permeating every lgbt discussion. I notice how they feel about us. All the facades and political correctness in the world arent able to hide their homophobia. I come from a jehovah witness background, i know when someone is being disingenuous.

I know there are trans people with more common sense but i believe they are a minority, at least in online spaces. Trans issues have to be mentioned literally everywhere, its crazy. If gay men tried to do the same, people would say we make everything about being gay. Or we are sex addicts, like many people in lgbt spaces already believe. Not very different from my religious past.

I had an old reddit account that was permabanned. The reason is i snapped at a muslim defending the homophobia in their holy book. That should tell you everything you need to know about reddit and their untouchable protected groups.

Just got permanently banned from reddit for commenting how if liberals actually played Hogwarts Legacy they would see how much of a liberal wet dream it is:

-Complete racial intergration

-Casual mentions of homosexuality, including interracial homosexual marriage

-The main companion is from Africa and ONLY has nice things to say about the trans bar keep

Banned for promoting hate.

Am currently permabanned from r/terriblefacebookmemes for this comment: “What does that have to do with anything? There are prominent gay people who are critical of trans agenda ex: Julie Bindel”

This was in response to a comment on a post of the Gus Fring meme where he is saying “You respect JKR because of the books, I respect JKR because of her views on trans. We are not the same.”

The comment said “Does the maker of this meme know that Gus Fring was gay?”

So obviously, they are making the common assumption that anybody critical of trans ideology must OBVIOUSLY be a homophobe.

So pretty much I got permabanned from a community because I said the words “trans agenda”.

I sent one response to the mods: “You have no justification for this. You are pathetic brainwashed ideologues.”

They reported me for “harassment” and now I am banned sitewide for three days.

Currently appealing but have negative amount of hope for anything remotely resembling justice.

Banned from reddit and now Twitter for defending women's and gay people's right to refer to themselves using words.

I'm probably better off but I'm still pissed.

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

i love reddit, but its stupid that people get banned for their opinion. im not banned, just dont talk about gender.

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

Mainstream social media sites are so censored now, it's crazy. What happened? Is someone paying them...

I have had been on Reddit since 2018 and I have been a R/actuallesbians follower for a long time. I had to watch it slowly push back actual women for TIMs.

One day I just snapped when I saw a post complaining about how "all cis lesbians have left" made by a TIM. I told him that was bound to happen when a bunch of men got into the sub and banned every woman who complained. They banned me too lol.

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

The title of the subreddit is pure irony now.

Got my first suspension for saying something true on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. I appealed but then cut that short because there were other true things that needed to be said in a timely fashion, and appeals can take a lot longer than the censorship does, apparently. I am unrepentant. Every word of it was true.

You got suspended after ellon? lol.

[–]wafflegaffWoman. SuperBi. 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Also you are clearly new here or this is a new account, at 2 days old. Welcome.

[–]bucetao6969Ace spectrum | LGB should respect religion practicers 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

yeah im new here. Not LGB, but on the ace spectrum. I'm welcome right?

[–]wafflegaffWoman. SuperBi. 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Of course. We do get the occasional new-account troll being snarky, so pardon my bit of side-eye. Make yourself at home. (I'm not a mod—if you want to read the TMI we have some rules in the sidebar.) We have some straight allies who hang out with us too.

[–]wafflegaffWoman. SuperBi. 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

No, see the date on my comment. And also they do still suspend people after Elon. Including GC people. That system didn't magically completely change overnight.

[–]bucetao6969Ace spectrum | LGB should respect religion practicers 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

So apparently the system changed, musk fired the woman who removed the "what is a woman" documentary, we're getting closer to what would be a good social media for lgb people.

Also, what is your opinion of the lgbtq+ pride "tuck-friendly" female swimsuit at target? Don't you find a little weird they're making female swimsuits for people with penises?

[–]wafflegaffWoman. SuperBi. 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

IIRC she resigned, yes, though I don't know if that was a real resignation or a "you can see yourself out" resignation.

I'm about as enthused about those swimsuits as anyone else here, which is to say not at all. That is groomer TRA / TQ+ nonsense being taken up by idiotic corporations hoping to make a buck and please the "right" people (the ones they are afraid to stand up to at least), safeguarding be damned.

[–]bucetao6969Ace spectrum | LGB should respect religion practicers 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

yeah I'm not enthrilled about that either but I'm even less enthrilled to the notion that I might come across some freak-looking dick-girl in a public in a swimsuit having some bulge, way to ruin it for everybody (I just like swimsuits in general). Time to find some conservative communities with their private pools.

Subscriber to Actuallesbians got kicked out for pointing that lesbian means a)Someone/something originating from the isle of Lesbos (well I am Greek) or b)a homosexual woman and because I kept insisting that someone who is male is not a woman. Went and joined r/truelesbians when it was just a hundred members strong,later became a mod there until the original founder decided to start accepting posts from transwomen so that "we do not get banned".I disagreed and quit. Founded r/homosexualwomen which never took off.Joined r/LGBdroptheT and TumbrlinAction. My posts there got me suspended from Reddit forever (temporary ban for hate when I said pedos should be dealt with a woodchipper and perma ban for saying there is a difference between someone who suffers from GID and someone who gets sexually arroused by wearing skirts).

The first time someone called me a TERF is when I pointed out that our species has two sexes.

I may as well start. I do not have any bans under my belt except for automated bots on Reddit, so here's a story!

Your forever-loving original mods from Reddit (WavingVoid/me, IPD/Tumbleweed, and Rez/crypkids) saw an opportunity to take over some LGBDTT-like subs from a user who was suspended. We coordinated behind the scenes to request them through the "Reddit Request" sub. Most requests were ignored, but I managed to gain a couple. Maybe because all I really do anymore is mod, I don't know.

I got hold of r/TrueGayMen.

I'm a bisexual woman, I have no business running a gay man's sub. So I brought on a regular and passionate user to be the top mod in charge of things.

That user ruffled some feathers because he was open to bisexual men in strictly male relationships. I understand, but I didn't step in because it wasn't my place, I was only there to stop TRAs and homophobes from ruining things.

The sub eventually got banned for hate, as all "true" LGB subs do since we don't suck the girldick/eat the boipussy. The user I made a mod then came to SaidIt and his first post in our sub said:

It just feels like the conservative dickheads were right. You let the gays get married and you’ll open up Pandora’s box. I hate to admit it but it’s starting to look like they were right.

"The gays". Really?

He was immediately banned, and then tried to defend himself in Modmail saying:

No, it’s is wrong for you guys to ban me. You are jumping to conclusions and being overly sensitive. It sucks what happened to LGBDropthT. The least you could do is not abandon your own principles and create this kind of hostility in an environment where we all desperately need friends and allies.

It wasn’t a pity party. I am sorry because it wasn’t my intention to make anyone feel insulted. It was just a hammy, drama queen moment, that I picked up from hanging around gay people again these last few years. If we knew each other personally or if I was able to properly communicate my tone and sarcasm we wouldn’t be having this conversation right now I assure you.

You guys are good people.

"You guys".

So never really one of us, he was always an outsider. And wasn't even gay himself.
