We’re not the only ones angry. LGBDroptheT is basically waiting for the timer to go down and then for the hammer to drop. A lot of people across Reddit are just posting “WTF” over and over.

I have no idea why it became okay for a such a narcissistic, irrational, anti-science movement to have gained a chokehold over free dissent - oh wait, because they’re backed by pharmaceutical money.

[–]100_percent_truth 58 insightful - 8 fun58 insightful - 7 fun59 insightful - 8 fun -  (25 children)

They banned /r/femalehuman a few minutes ago too. I'm so depressed.

[–]psychadelicqueen 37 insightful - 5 fun37 insightful - 4 fun38 insightful - 5 fun -  (10 children)

What the fuck dude? It was barely up for half a day. This shit is seriously silencing women if I’ve ever seen it before

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 40 insightful - 4 fun40 insightful - 3 fun41 insightful - 4 fun -  (9 children)

Sure is. They are calling it "evasion" yet the gcguys are still up in business. Why? It's a men's sub with that right in the name.

Wait seriously??? :O

[–]vijfkeervier 20 insightful - 1 fun20 insightful - 0 fun21 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

The people from that one sub about reporting 'hate subs' are actively looking for subs that they can report for 'ban evasion', so if anyone was thinking of creating a new topical sub on reddit: be careful.

Fucking r/AgainstHateSubs

Those guys have been actively working to eliminate every GC and radfem subs for months now. Welp, sooner or later all of Reddit is going to be one giant uberwoke/libfem/TRA echo chamber. Then they will get bored and complain that “no one wants to be around them” and we are “discriminating by not using Reddit anymore” It may sound silly and ridiculous now but mark my words. If they don’t have biological women and lesbians to bully into validating them, they aren’t happy. Same reason they won’t date each other, although they are constantly up in our tits trying to get us to date THEM

I am also depressed. I did some screaming in my car on my way home from work today.

It's just galvanized me into activity. I work best when massively irritated.

Just noticed what happened and came here immediately to check if there's a new sub... so glad this sub name has been taken by us and not by our "fans". Do you know where the majority has migrated? As in is there another platform I'm not aware of?

[–]33799 27 insightful - 7 fun27 insightful - 6 fun28 insightful - 7 fun -  (17 children)

A lot of people are joining Spinster. It's more of a Twitter-kinda format site (Mastodon?), and its community before this just happened ran a little on the older (and British) side, so it's not great, but it's something.

[–]Barmcake 28 insightful - 23 fun28 insightful - 22 fun29 insightful - 23 fun -  (6 children)

Oi! What's wrong with being older and British ? ;)

[–]gparmesan[S] 32 insightful - 11 fun32 insightful - 10 fun33 insightful - 11 fun -  (0 children)

You guys are taking us to school on dealing with TRAs, so not a goddamn thing (also your tv is so darn entertaining)

[–]Riva 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

My mum's older and British!!

[–]Aletheia 8 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 1 fun9 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks, joined it and also posted a link here. They can't silence us.

[–]gparmesan[S] 12 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I don't know, I had an existing account here so I rushed to make one before it was taken over. Unreal. If anyone has other platforms, please add them.

[–]WrongToy 60 insightful - 17 fun60 insightful - 16 fun61 insightful - 17 fun -  (22 children)

Hi, glad I finally got to claim my old handle back after getting sitebanned from Reddit in 2018 for speaking out about Yaniv.

No they're not shutting me up.

[–]gparmesan[S] 27 insightful - 8 fun27 insightful - 7 fun28 insightful - 8 fun -  (0 children)

oh shit we have GC ROYALTY up in here?? you love to see it

[–]WrongToy 18 insightful - 2 fun18 insightful - 1 fun19 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

LOL I never really left. I STILL talk about JY.

[–]Jamiethiel2018 16 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

Damn glad to see you, WrongToy! I lurked mostly & you were banned before any of us could thank you properly for protecting women & children.

[–]WrongToy 13 insightful - 2 fun13 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

What really irked me is that I knew people had put down actual money they earned for the gold and plats I got at the end. I felt bad that they wasted their money.

And another thing if we're going to be blunt, I was told by some in that discussion and even some behind the scenes that I was making them nervous with the JY talk. Fact is everything I posted about them was already in the media and I included those sources too.

[–]covenofcovens 64 insightful - 2 fun64 insightful - 1 fun65 insightful - 2 fun -  (3 children)

Thank you for setting this up. I am beyond angry that the one space in MY LIFE where I could talk openly about so many important issues has been taken away from me. I relied on GC to keep me informed, to keep me sane, and to remind me that there are other women out there who have my back (and will support me by both agreeing with me AND asking me tough questions when they don't).

[–]gparmesan[S] 42 insightful - 2 fun42 insightful - 1 fun43 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

They can take the space but they cannot take your thoughts and opinions. Now is the time to talk IRL with other women about how patently fucking ridiculous it is to not be able to state facts. Women are adult human females.

[–]seminolehighlander 22 insightful - 1 fun22 insightful - 0 fun23 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I agree. I would go everyday to just read and occasionally comment, I got SO MUCH value out of it, from a variety of different perspectives, and it always strengthened my resolve. This just...strengthens my resolve even more, though.

[–]xxelinaxx 59 insightful - 4 fun59 insightful - 3 fun60 insightful - 4 fun -  (6 children)

I was just a silent reader on the GC sub but I'm furious it got banned. I really don't get it. It wasn't hateful at all. So now we can't even state facts anymore? I hate what the internet has become. Glad there is at least this place we can talk freely.

[–]gparmesan[S] 25 insightful - 3 fun25 insightful - 2 fun26 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Yep. Facts that hurt feelings are now banned. Start discussing this with your IRL friends. It's time.

[–][deleted] 17 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 0 fun18 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

In an interview with one of the people who helped create the internet, he said that it's become a really bad place for girls and women.

[–]dworkinian 53 insightful - 2 fun53 insightful - 1 fun54 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I'm pissed beyond belief. Reddit is a colossal fuck-up of a site and if they want to pander to delusional, misogynist men, fine. I'm out. Right now I'm on Spinster but if this place takes off I'll be here. Gendercritical was my home on the internet for 2 years. I will miss all the great, intelligent women on there so much!

[–]fogellegof 17 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I feel the same! I cannot believe it! I also joined about 2 years ago and it was such an wonderful place. But I'm also glad that so many of us seem to come here very fast.

[–]Complicated-Spirit 51 insightful - 5 fun51 insightful - 4 fun52 insightful - 5 fun -  (17 children)

Just now found the update to their policy that lead to the ban hammer titled “Remember the Human”.

So men who scream “Die TERF” at women who don’t want to have sex with men (excuse me, women with penises) and send mass messages that consist only of the words “CHOKE TRANSPHOBE” to all women on a particular subreddit are humans we should remember, but we gender-critical women are not. Seems legit. /s

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 44 insightful - 4 fun44 insightful - 3 fun45 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

Exactly. When they say human, they don't mean women.

[–]filbs111 43 insightful - 3 fun43 insightful - 2 fun44 insightful - 3 fun -  (7 children)

Here's an archive link for the site before it was binned off by reddit. Moderators might want to copy some of the sidebar content etc https://web.archive.org/web/20200626232402/https://www.reddit.com/r/GenderCritical/

[–]Tom_Bombadil 70 insightful - 3 fun70 insightful - 2 fun71 insightful - 3 fun -  (6 children)

An important statement from the sidebar.

Women are adult human females. We do not believe that men can become women by 'feeling' like women.

It blows my mind that this is a controversial position.

You won't find too many people arguing against this here.

Welcome.

[–]Zednix 10 insightful - 3 fun10 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 3 fun -  (5 children)

That should be something TERFS and anti-feminists should ally on.

[–]cosmify 41 insightful - 2 fun41 insightful - 1 fun42 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

devastated but not surprised at the loss of gender critical. it eventually peaked everyone i directed over there and had an excellent archive of information

[–]westhead 44 insightful - 2 fun44 insightful - 1 fun45 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

I'm actually shocked at how affected I am by the ban. I usually just lurk online, but GC was where I felt empowered to interact with other women, and grow confidence in myself. GC was part of my daily ritual. I really hope this version can become nearly as active.

[–]Heteronormativefuckt 18 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 0 fun19 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Agreed. I've been really upset now for 2 hours. This is such bullshit. We just watched reddit die. They did nothing about the Donald for 6 years while actual threats on people's lives were made on an almost daily basis.

[–]radfemanon 30 insightful - 2 fun30 insightful - 1 fun31 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

We will rebuild (:

[–]chz_g0d 31 insightful - 5 fun31 insightful - 4 fun32 insightful - 5 fun -  (4 children)

waves I'm from LGBdroptheT, Itsafetish and a lurker of GCrit.. I must admit, the writings are on the wall. A small fraction of the population has infiltrated, intimidated and squeezed into every space imaginable with the full backing of main stream media. Pushing aside or censoring anyone who disagrees. We are no longer allowed to have our own spaces if they can not be centered within. How pathetic. Fight on all, speak up no matter what. I will always stand with truth never feelings.

[–]xxRoguexx 29 insightful - 2 fun29 insightful - 1 fun30 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

This is crazy, I’m still trying to wrap my head around GC being classified as a hateful subreddit, this is so wrong

[–]StreetAcanthisitta55 26 insightful - 2 fun26 insightful - 1 fun27 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

You know gender critical was awful, but those subs where non consentual/rape porn is posted are okay. /s

[–]PandorasAquarium 26 insightful - 2 fun26 insightful - 1 fun27 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

The GCGuys sub directed us to the GCtwitter, however there were replies stating they were off to get that banned too, so whoever runs that account needs to be aware that it's being targeted right now.

Solidarity sisters.

[–]Chrysalis920 25 insightful - 2 fun25 insightful - 1 fun26 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Looked for an alternative space once I couldn’t access the original sub. That sub was the reason I originally joined and I regret not participating in the discussion. So many thoughtful, sensible and critical thinking women for women. Thank you for creating another safe space

[–][deleted] 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

[–]Sineadsiobhan 25 insightful - 1 fun25 insightful - 0 fun26 insightful - 1 fun -  (15 children)

I’ve come here. I really enjoyed the discussions on GC. It was not hate-filled.

Sooner or later, people will realise that the tra ideology is a right wing MRA ideology.

[–]TheGreatLeon 14 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 2 fun -  (13 children)

Do you really think it was the Right Wing that did this to you guys?

[–]Aletheia 33 insightful - 3 fun33 insightful - 2 fun34 insightful - 3 fun -  (9 children)

Do you really think it was the Right Wing that did this to you guys?

Good point, the left has become so misogynistic I'm not sure the MRA ideology can be branded exclusively as a right-wing one anymore. And I feel politically more and more homeless...

[–]TheGreatLeon 20 insightful - 1 fun20 insightful - 0 fun21 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I know what you mean about feeling politically homeless. I’m probably considered right wing by most of you but I don’t like guns, don’t like religion, always hated the confederate flag and grew up Liberal in (Upstate) NY. But the Liberals I knew - the ones that fought against censorship, against labels and for actual equality - no longer exist. In their place are self-righteous terrorists that use intimidation and violence to try and silence anyone not at the top of the hierarchy. They are the majority now and have all the power. Yeah It should be quite obvious for everyone to see that by now.

[–]Shinjin_Nana 19 insightful - 1 fun19 insightful - 0 fun20 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I think that's one of the reasons the MRA/TRA got a foothold so easily. Liberally political radical feminists trusted the left to have our backs and the moment men wanted something they shoved a knife in it.

I liked the left because they seemed more compassionate and didn't deny science the way the right did. But now I've come to realize that both sides will deny or embrace whatever science pushes their agenda, and neither side is compassionate.

Ex-Redditor reporting in. GC was such a welcome antidote to the groupthink and misogyny on the rest of Reddit. I am so genuinely shocked that it was banned. Happy to serve as a moderator if needed.

[–]eaglerave 23 insightful - 1 fun23 insightful - 0 fun24 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

I'm gutted that so much content has been lost. All the Peak Trans threads... oh well, we can rebuild here. Thanks for making this site.

[–]Complicated-Spirit 18 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 0 fun19 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I’m told some Peak Trans threads are available on the WayBack Machine.

[–]yishengqingwa666 15 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 0 fun16 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Someone MUST have archived those... there was talk of getting banned for some time now. Let's see what can be found among us, and there's always more ppl peaking, eh?

[–]courage2courage 21 insightful - 3 fun21 insightful - 2 fun22 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Hi. I'm one of the (many) GC users who recently joined r/GC. I never posted but I've been reading and reading and reading.

GC was the one purely female space in a misogynistic, porn-obsessed hellfire. It was one of the few mainstream spaces where women were free to speak their minds. I'm sick of supposedly educated people kowtowing to an insidious, nonsense fiction at the expense of women and girls.

Anyway. Basically, this is my intro post to say hello. I'm no longer going to be a lurker, wherever GC ends up. Reddit might be banned but my voice is not.

[–]riot_grrrl 19 insightful - 3 fun19 insightful - 2 fun20 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

GenderCritical was becoming too powerful. TRAs are scared of all the people peaking. But we will rebuild and rise up!

[–]1350DogwoodAvenue 18 insightful - 4 fun18 insightful - 3 fun19 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

This community I was too scared to really be a part of just disappeared before my eyes. All the stories, video links, book recommendations I had bookmarked I can no longer access (so glad I took screenshots of some things).

I was too scared to participate much before but now I'm pissed as hell and am going to order some books online and start educating myself in earnest and looking for real life groups.

[–][deleted] 17 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 1 fun18 insightful - 2 fun -  (8 children)

[–]DustyKitten 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

Gender critical guys is still up. That was the biggest insult for me. Basically a giant "fuck you women"

[–]WrongToy 20 insightful - 2 fun20 insightful - 1 fun21 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

I realize ppl are pissed about the guys' sub being open still but that's one conduit that people are finding this space.

We told guys to go over there almost since its inception. And now they are letting us go over there until we find alternative spaces like this.

They aren't the enemy in this situation.

[–]aldoushuxleyghost 17 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 0 fun18 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

REddit Gen Crit refugee here... will the community reform off reddit here?

I see this sub is restricted and you can't post here. I'm new to saidit, why is that?

[–]gparmesan[S] 16 insightful - 3 fun16 insightful - 2 fun17 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

It's because I am new and scrambling to get it set up. Sorry for the restriction, you should be allowed now

[–]radfemanon 12 insightful - 2 fun12 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It's brand new. We are setting up moderators, styles, rules, flairs and the such. I think we need to OK people to post but we'll see about sorting that out. The interface is different to Reddit's so is going to take some getting used to!

[–]filbs111 16 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 1 fun17 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks for making this. I would otherwise have squatted and had to figure out how to offload it to someone trustworthy. Welcome aboard!

[–]ninette90 15 insightful - 3 fun15 insightful - 2 fun16 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I'm so mad, after JK Rowling tweets I slowly started to see more and more people peaking everywhere, even the comment section of Trans women are women posts of woke instagram accounts were full of sensible comments.

I even spoke about being GC with some in real life friends and they were open to listen and eventually agreed. I was feeling good, but now this?? This is bullshit and they won't silence us.

[–]Oof_Too_Humid 14 insightful - 2 fun14 insightful - 1 fun15 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Thanks for setting this up. I'm freaking out a little because this, along with all the other wins for TRAs is a bit much. Orwellian future? Nope, Orwellian now.

[–]Ofthewoods 14 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 0 fun15 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I just joined Reddit for the first time a week and a half ago for GC after the JKR thing and WTF. Is this in any way normal? That a sub would get banned without even warning the mods? I have still been reading through all of the information and had really been nervous to talk to my less progressive friends and family about gender ideology because I didn’t want to make them actually transphobic or judgmental (I live in a decent sized city in a red state and they probably don’t really know about any of what is being argued for right now) but it looks like I need to get over that concern. Guess the time for easing myself in is over.

[–]yishengqingwa666 12 insightful - 4 fun12 insightful - 3 fun13 insightful - 4 fun -  (18 children)

HEYYYY. I got banned from Reddit some time ago for my misandrEEE (and facts ofc) and am on Spinster (come find me there!). What is this place? will they ban us here, too?

[–][deleted] 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (15 children)

AFAIK saidit has no connection to reddit other than the base code for the website. Different mods, different admins, different servers.

[–]Pulpfiction 13 insightful - 1 fun13 insightful - 0 fun14 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I'm absolutely furious. We are always silenced. It's disgusting. I have been a redditor 5+ years and this was the final straw for me.

[–]4eyedpurplePPLeater 11 insightful - 1 fun11 insightful - 0 fun12 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I am too, esp when you check out all the male subs still running that are violent (r/BanFemaleHateSubs) & how GCguys is still up! Tells you everything.

[–]radfemanon 12 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 0 fun13 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well, looks like we need to start from scratch here.

Do you want some graphics for the sub page?

[–]flickumbicus 11 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

Damn. Look at the numbers on the side. This place is BLOWING UP, and it's wonderful. 727 members, 122 reading now. They can try to silence us, but just like the suffragettes, we will not be denied!

We know where Reddit stands now. They're with the violent porn, kink, rape fantasies, and violence toward women subs.

Fuck 'em.

[–]absoluteunitpussy 10 insightful - 1 fun10 insightful - 0 fun11 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)
