Hi! TRA here! Thought I'd take a quick breather from all the crowing, high-fiving, etc. to throw a lifeline to any actual open-minded critical thinkers wondering why Reddit banned r/gendercritical. Basically, you have 2 options when it comes to what to believe:

1. It's a true conspiracy: silicon valley, hollywood & the media are in the thrall of the well-funded TransAgenda, the need for woke points, child-groomers, women-haters, MRAs, etc. etc.

2. r/GenderCritical was hateful - if you want evidence then go to r/GenderCynical which existed to harvest said hatefulness. Read their strictly enforced rules about hate speech, misogyny, anti-feminism, pile-ons, doxxing, etc. (NB: abbreviating "trans exclusionary radical feminist" is not considered hate speech on this subreddit) and then sort their posts by "top" and "all time" and judge for yourself.

The trans men, trans women and non-binary people of Reddit do not hate women and do not tolerate abuse. Have a better day. x

I'm sure it's not a conspiracy. I don't think TRAs are packing the starts for a proper conspiracy, really. I'm also sure you're not taking a break from crowing. Enjoy your status as Closer Of Forums. It must be almost as good as chocolate.🙄

Why are you restricting yourself to such a binary choice?

It'll be much, much easier to claim it was a hate sub when no one can access it anymore won't it.

I've only seen men on Twitter discussing this so your post may be more helpful there. Or have I misunderstood and this is one of the many occasions where men don't respond to men but feel the need to 'explain' to women instead?

Well...no, because the shittiest bits were documented, like I just said.

Unless you are a speed reader with fibre broadband I doubt you've looked into it much in the 11 minutes it took you to respond.

What???? It's been banned?? I was quite active on there. Absolute disgrace and totally against freedom of speech. I didn't see any hate on there apart from the anti GC trolls. I was on the receiving end of nasty abuse from TRAs simply because I was a member of GC and posted on there.

I've been subscribed to both subs for years. Why do you guys always think that anyone with a different opinion is uninformed?

A sub set up to take down another sub isn't exactly going to be chockful of balanced information now is it?

The sub is archived. Anyone can see the actual content for themselves and make up their own mind. No one needs their opinions spoon fed by a hate sub.

You seem to have not realised that you can't delete the people who were members. You can't control people's thoughts hmm

3. No-one likes uppity women who won’t just be kind and let males redefine what it is to be a woman.

4. Sexism is so prevalent, society gets very upset when men (and women) don’t conform to neat little boxes so think that if they step outside their allocated box they have to step into a new box. The uppity women in 3. don’t believe in boxes although they do believe in biology. What nasty bitches. As we are not supposed to burn them (not even in a grease fire) we’ll have to unplug them.

5. Did I mention that there are women who we disagree with on the internet? These Fucking bitches are worse than rapists and abusers (whose pages aren’t so FUCKING ANNOYING so can stay). So fuck the bitches. Annoying bitches. They’re probably old as well. Old feminist hags. Just need to suck a dick and they’ll cheer up. Wouldn’t even rape them (check out the rape confessions page if you don’t believe me). Bitches. But I can’t say this because I’m a nice guy. Unlike those intolerant cis straight bitches.

You're the op who was trying to get people to campaign against an American Battered Women's Justice Project, aren't you?

I have no skin in this game and just clicked from the front page but I have to say the utter arrogance of your OP in instructing people of their two and only two choices of what to believe is breathtaking.

Why do you get to tell people what two choices they have? You're reinforcing the stereotype of bombastic, aggressive TRA'ism.

You mean GenderCynical which stalks and doxxes GC women? And why was r/femalehuman banned? They hadn't posted anything except declare their intention to be GC. You're not fooling anyone.

men silencing women. no change there then.

I've read the trans subreddits. You can't see the misogyny there for the same reason that fish can't see water.

What does TRA stand for? Sorry I get lost with the acronyms

I was wondering why the OP came here to talk about something no-one on MN was discussing but I worked it out

Erm.... there's a whole thread on here about it being banned so clearly it is being talked about?

That was a bit of a reverse-psychology troll, admittedly. Thanks for reposting the link! smile

Oh well. This forum has rules too.

Reddit doesn't really seem to matter much to anyone outside of reddit tbh, but points 1 seem pretty well exemplified by twitter nowadays.
