Dear MNHQ, I am pissed off with all the Trans threads. I understand that you don't wish to stifle debate/free speech and all that shit, so I propose 4 threads where all trans posts can be hidden go.

A Fuck Trans thread. For posters who hate that people are trans.
A Yay Trans thread. For posters who wish to support trans people.
A Trans Bunfight Club thread. For posters on the other two threads who want to have a bit of a ruck.
And a What MNHQ Have To Say About Trans Threads thread. For, well I think you get my drift.

All other trans posts on the site can be deleted, no other threads can be started and I can enjoy the site more.

What he/she/they said. with fucking bells on.

Mycatsabastard Wed 31-Aug-16 22:15:01

Just set up a trans section so I can hide the whole fucking lot.

I am sick to death of nearly every thread having some bloody mention of it.

usual Wed 31-Aug-16 22:16:10

I'd hide site stuff, but I kinda like site stuff when it's not full of trans stuff.

leccybill Wed 31-Aug-16 22:19:19

I hide any thread title which has the merest mention of transport.
The whole thing is boring the tits off me (which is a tad ironic).

GerdaLovesLili Wed 31-Aug-16 22:20:08

Yes. It's not like anyone has anything new to say. Please.

Topanga1 Wed 31-Aug-16 22:21:24

Here's a thought - why just not click on a trans thread? There are dozens of topics I'm not interested in and I avoid them by not opening the bleeding thread!

leccybill Wed 31-Aug-16 22:23:22

Ha- transport.
I'd actually rather read about transport.

usual Wed 31-Aug-16 22:24:17

Yes. I might take up train spotting. grin

DioneTheDiabolist Wed 31-Aug-16 22:35:28

Ah Topanga, if only it was that simple. But it's not.angry

Tonight I went onto what I thought was a Make-up thread. I have recently bought some make-up, not something I do often. Ooh, says me to myself, I should look at this thread and perhaps contribute my musings on buying/wearing the make-up wot I bought. So I opened it. And was it about make-up? Was it fuck! It was another cunting Fuck Trans thread pretending to be something it wasn't.angry

Trans issues needs its own topic! It has been mentioned many times before but the request is always ignored.

I am sick to the back teeth of trans issues sprouting up everyone and taking over active conversations. Give it its/his/hers own topic so that those of us who couldn't care less can hide the topic and go back to enjoying MN.

That being said, there will invariably be threads ins Chat or AIBU "for traffic". hmm

DioneTheDiabolist Wed 31-Aug-16 23:05:14

No. No. No. No.
No fucking "For Traffic". No, "oops it cropped up accidentally on this thread"[fake blush bullshit].

Just 4 threads. That's all that's needed because let's face it, it's the same shit on every trans thread in Active, in FWR, in AIBU, in Chat and in Site Stuff. BUT IT CAN ALL GO INTO 4 FUCKING THREADS.

DioneTheDiabolist Wed 31-Aug-16 23:11:42

That can be ignored, hidden or posted on.smile

Love it! grin #TeamYayTrans

I'm sick of the whole bloody trans this that and the other
Someone accused me of advocating suicide to stifle debate on Sunday not knowing Im a recovering addict and have attempted suicide myself. Thanks a lot for making me cry
I thought this was Mumsnet fo you know Parents
Give them their own topic so I can hide it.
Pushing an agenda doesn't help anyone !
Thanks for starting this thread

Don't click fgs.

It's topical at the moment. Most threads are clearly titled. Not all, no, before anyone jumps on.

Honestly some people just want Me-net, getting pissed off when other people want to talk about other stuff.

Just don't click! Or click back out! takes you two seconds compared to MNHQ making new sections which will be tumbleweed after a while anyway

CoteDAzur Wed 31-Aug-16 23:25:38

If only there were a way to hide threads you don't want to read.

Oh, wait.

NotMe321 Wed 31-Aug-16 23:27:47

Yes. It's not like anyone has anything new to say

^ ^ ^

This!

TealLove Wed 31-Aug-16 23:30:04

It's v clear which threads are re. Trans issues. Just don't click or go back surely?

TwentyCups Wed 31-Aug-16 23:30:20

The problem is there's loads of threads which look like they're not trans related until you open them, it's too late by then.
Or (even worse) threads which don't seem trans related... Until you read up to page 4 by which time it's the usual bunfight.
I started a thread asking opinions on a yoni necklace I purchased recently (incredibly negative opinions but hey ho it'll be here tomorrow! ;) ) Even on that someone came along to post inflammatory trans stuff. I stopped posting on it after that.

DioneTheDiabolist Wed 31-Aug-16 23:30:36

I don't want a Me-net, although that would be fucking awesome.grin I don't want a Trans-net either, I just want a Mumsnet. That's why I joined.

venusinscorpio Wed 31-Aug-16 23:31:18

And look, exactly the same people are saying exactly the same not new things as they always do on another trans thread. To whinge on about there being too many trans threads. It would be ironic, but really it's too fucking dull for that.

PortiaCastis Wed 31-Aug-16 23:31:43

Precisely

PurpleDaisies Wed 31-Aug-16 23:32:21

I agree that due to the sheer number of threads it would be a good idea to have a trans topic. We've got topics for all sorts of other things-I can't see why it would be a problem.

I thought this was Mumsnet for you know Parents
portia there are lots of non-parents on mumsnet now (myself included).
Mnhq has made it clear we are definitely welcome here. I also don't think that's a good criticism to make because pro/anti trans posters (whether you agree with them or not) could well be parents themselves.

ITCouldBeWorse Wed 31-Aug-16 23:34:56

Could I have a 'I don't mind if you want to wear a frock and call yourself Maureen, but I'd really rather you not bring your penis into my changing room or swipe my daughters woman in science scholarship' thread?

It might be a bit specific and nongoady, but that's how I roll.
