Great idea. Should be on bus stops.

I keep seeing references to the Rules of Misogyny on here but don't know who wrote them. Is it just an internet thing or was it, say, Dworkin?

Some new ones in there?

I like the reply to it that asks various people to answer the question "what is a woman"?

The list was begun by TheBewilderness and has been added to over the years.
One or two might have even originated on MN.grin

TheBewilderness who, IIRC, was banned from MN for speaking the truth

Shameful, that

Quite so, AF.

Quite so.

TheBewilderness is bloody brilliant.

Yep, banning TheBewilderness was as bad as banning Langcleg, something is very wrong when inspirational feminist women are being banned for posting feminist opinions on a feminist forum.

Actually, do we know if TheBewilderness and Langcleg post anywhere else? PM me and I will give you my contacts if you know so I can chat to these wonderful women again.

Oh I though @TehBewilderness was back, but I’ve just realised she’s not posted since the 10th of this month.

Her posts didn’t seem ban worth, I felt she was sitting on her hands and staying within guidelines. What happened??

Also see this thread, where @thebewilderness (note spelling) posted the list in 2018, but she was posting the rules from at least 2016 here

They are on both Spinster and Twitter, I think.
