Regarding twitter conversations about underage consent.
It’s fine up on my feed as a celebrity I follow liked his tweet.

I love James Dreyfus, he’s a voice of reason in a sea of madness.

MsMarvellous Thu 30-Jul-20 18:12:11

He's really taking the bull by the horns.

Alonelonelyloner Thu 30-Jul-20 19:08:54

Great! Thanks. I just started following him.

FloralBunting Thu 30-Jul-20 19:21:39

He's one of the very few reasons I was happy to use Twitter for a time. Thoroughly decent bloke.

Ereshkigalangcleg Thu 30-Jul-20 19:23:29

Very funny too. A great account to follow.

DrDavidBanner Thu 30-Jul-20 19:33:27

I'm glad hes doing this, more attention needs to be brought to it and Twitter needs to know it is not acceptable.
Twitter is a cesspit and needs to be cleaned up, one of the reasons I came away from it was all the MAPs, MRAs and furries.

Apparently according to Twitter's policy this is all dandy as long as they're not glorifying or promoting child exploitation in any way hmm

Great guy. He also tweeted this

"What astonishes me is the ease with which children, vulnerable women & adolescents girls have become the MOST disposable, when it comes to ‘championing inclusive causes’.

In fact, it sickens me.

Do people even possess a moral compass anymore?"

The MAP crowd even have their own charity now. Didn't they go after Sarah Phillimore? Picked the wrong person there.

How the fuck are paedophiles allowed to Twitter but Posie Parker and Graham Lineham not?

ThePurported Thu 30-Jul-20 20:24:47

Because in the male-dominated tech industry, free speech is primarily about men's sexual "needs". There was a great thread about this stuff in the aftermath of the Reddit shutdowns, I'll see if I can find it.

NeurotrashWarrior Thu 30-Jul-20 21:17:53

I'm so glad he's taken this on.

I noticed this on his thread:

Twitter and Reddit are MRA run, it would seem.

James Dreyfus is clearly a really, really decent human being.

SirSamuelVimesBlackboardMonito Thu 30-Jul-20 22:21:02

He's great. He's screaming into the void though I think, sadly.

IloveJKRowling Thu 30-Jul-20 22:44:31

Yes, this.

It's utterly appalling Twitter are only suspending the accounts of these vile people, and have only even done that because JD has drawn attention to how vile they are.

The fact that the platform is enabling paedophiles is why I won't use Twitter. Ever.

He is indeed.

Neurotrash - it's very encouraging to see that the Mail is planning a big investigative piece on this. Really looking forward to what they come up with.

RoyalCorgi Fri 31-Jul-20 09:33:22

Katherine Denkinson, who wrote the piece for Mail on Sunday about MAPs, tweeted her article a few weeks ago. Have a look at the responses:

SirSamuelVimesBlackboardMonito Fri 31-Jul-20 09:36:31

Fucking hell those responses.

Dances Fri 31-Jul-20 10:09:38

I also like him but it's a low fucking bar when we are relieved to have a man speaking out against paedophilia

thehumanformerlyknownasfemale Fri 31-Jul-20 10:16:01

Oh God, those comments. Someone asking why the journo didn't reach out to more people in the 'community.'

I feel fucking sick. How the hell have we got here?

Good God, I have never been a ‘string them up and chop off their balls’ type, I agree that there needs to be more research into paedophilia and how we can manage it. But those replies! Actively campaigning to lower the age of consent to as young as 4 years old?!! I feel that for some children even 16 is too low an age....

DrDavidBanner Fri 31-Jul-20 10:45:25

Well apparently they're some of the most sensitive and sweet human beings on the planet so I guess they've got that going for them confused

Those people are sick and I can't believe some of the replies she got. Well I can, thats why I'm no longer on Twitter, I notice one of the respondents (*@TNF*_13) describe themselves as Minority perspective amplifier what does that mean?

HaplessHetty Fri 31-Jul-20 10:49:16

OMG! Those responses....grim.

xsquared Fri 31-Jul-20 10:56:20

Those responses are very worrying indeed, and the one from Pedophiles about Pedophilia insisting they are not a risk, is especially disturbing.
