I'm honestly surprised it took this long. Not that I think it's a good thing.

Their real lesbians sub Reddit has been taken over by trans women and the TWAW crowd.

I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did

That subreddit was brilliant - I am absolutely gutted.

Letthemysterybe Mon 29-Jun-20 18:37:32

Wtf? Some of the crap that exists on reddit and THAT gets banned?

DandyMandy Mon 29-Jun-20 18:37:54

Absolutely disgusting how subreddits dedicated to promoting rape and murder and still allowed on that platform, but women discussing their oppression is apparently too far. The internet sucks so much.

I never signed up there but this is disappointing. I am surprised it lasted as long as it did though. There's been a sustained campaign to have it removed for years.

It had around 60k subs I recall.

"Combat hate"

Yeah right. Mountains of mysogynistic and pornographic content on there but hey who gives a fuck about women.

The de transitioners space will be next to go. The truth is not welcome

I guess it was the surge in new members off the back of JKR that did it. Can't have too many women accessing too much information or finding out there's others asking the same questions

r/rightwinglgbt has gone too.

I've never visited that one so can't say what the content was.

Apparently they have banned lots of subreddits today, not just that one, but it is probably due to lots of reports by the usual

Well, that's sinister but not at all unexpected.

This.

Female Dating Strategy will be the next one on the list. Not explicitly gc but very much a female centered sub so that won't last long. Can't have women gathering and sharing experiences...

Thelnebriati Mon 29-Jun-20 19:02:36

Lets not list reddits that will be banned, we dont want to give them any ideas!

Ereshkigalangcleg Mon 29-Jun-20 19:03:26

Reddit has always been a cesspit of angry misogynists.

WeeBisom Mon 29-Jun-20 19:07:01

They banned 2k subreddits but if you look at the stats the vast majority of the subs had a handful of people .I was surprised to see by their own statistics that 'gender critical' had more engagement and unique views than 'the Donald' which was a much bigger sub. The disparity is striking - the Donald were quarantined, frequently told off for inciting violence. The mods at gender critical report that they had never got into trouble with the Reddit higher ups. The sub was very good at sticking to the rules. To be honest, I only stuck around on Reddit for gender critical. Reddit is a very male dominated website (I think 90 percent plus of the user base are male), and it really shows...

Welcome to mumsnet ladies.

At the rate things are going there will have to be a woman-supportive section on kiwifarms.

Wouldn't that be just a tad ironic hmm.

An interesting post elsewhere predicting the mass bannings:

I’ve been exploring GC politics for the first time and have noticed when I try to Google anything current , all that crops up is pro trans rights stuff. Try putting ‘Jk Rowling supporters ‘ into a search engine . Nothing

Pinkpillfeminism is gender critical and seems to be locked except to moderators and approved users...
Reddit is a fucking cesspit.
