Reddit bans /r/Gender_Critical over hate speech

"Women don't have penises." - Hate Speech

"Die, TERF scum!!!" - protected speech

This isn't the actual gender critical sub, this is some knockoff that was started over a snit several years ago. The terrible news is that Reddit is engaging in viewpoint censorship, not the loss of this one sub.

No they’re both gone, the 60k member gendercritical and the smaller gender_critical.

The_Donald was abandoned by its user base months ago when they got an inkling that a permanent ban was in the works. They are now on another platform entirely. Banning a now empty sub was just for show in order to get Target the subs they really wanted silenced.

Besides getting rid of GC, they banned consumeproduct an anti-consumerism sub.

R19 Censorship of conservatives on social media has been much more aggressive and consistent in the past few years than of the left. They're better equipped to adapt to it and more likely to see the writing on the wall with changes to site rules and user agreements.

Censoring liberal views is a much more alarming development. Gendercritical so was politically similar to Datalounge, they could have been sister sites.

No joke, the activists behind this never stop looking for targets. Sooner or later, once actual homosexuals have been chased off of Reddit for good, this will be the largest and least-censored social media online for the gay community. When that happens they will target Muriel.

Dark days ahead.

Gay men noticing homophobia among radical feminists are not engaging in misogyny. Get a grip.

The double standards are incredible. Feminists want to attack gay men all day without being considered homophobic, but the second a gay man says something as mild as, "there's homophobia among feminists", he becomes a misogynist.

This is why I don't give people flack over trans-related threads that contain links from right-wing sources. These platforms will claim that it's because of anti-LGBT content, when in actuality, they have no problem with the anti-gay/lesbian content (see r15) just content that doesn't toe the line about trans. Instead of just saying it's because the commentary is anti-trans, trans and their allies know they have to bundle them up with us or some other larger movement in order to trick people into giving a shit. And this is what annoys me to no end: If their cause or a particular aim within it had any merit, they'd be able to persuade people to support them without latching onto other identities like a parasite.

I disagree. Gay marriage, for instance, was all about having the state recognize gay relationships as legitimate and equally deserving of the status of straight ones.

That's in many ways a far bigger societal shift than 'allowing these men with penises into women’s spaces', which I don't care about.

[quote]We only wanted to be allowed to live.

I disagree again. I fought and fight for actual legal protection and an end to homophobia in society. Active anti-discrimination is important. The alternative (which you seem to support) is allowing churches and bakeries to deny services. That's a very different cause from mine.

And kids, there is a troll or 2 on here who likes to try to get people with good opinions banned by deliberately mis-identifying their post numbers, or by blatantly lying about what they said. I've been seeing it a lot on here lately.

Another troll tactic is to quote another post in the thread without providing the post number such as R00. They are usually sockpuppeting their own posts. Most of the time these quoted posts are from a user I blocked a long time ago.

The best thing to do when you find these sorts of posts is to block them then read them in your Ignored list. You will nearly always find that they are indeed trolls. If by chance you discover they aren't, it's easy to un-block.
