Seriously, why the FUCK was GC banned? I didn't agree with so many of their positions (I found their blanket pathologizing of male sexuality weird, for instance, but whatever, everyone can have their views and ought to be free to talk about them) but nothing on that sub was remotely as distasteful as some of the things I outlined in the title.
What the actual fuck is going on that that website once hosted actual CP for years, had pedo mods and now they go and ban GC, RightWingLGBT and countless other benign subreddits compared to, you know, ACTUAL CHILD PORNOGRAPHY?! (I am aware that those subs have been gone for years, but I am quite aware pro-grooming subreddits and communities still run strong rn)
(In all seriousness, go look it up - subs like r/rapekink, r/strugglefucking and r/rapeconfessions are still up. Not to sound prudish or "kink shame", but in the context of the bannings, how are those okay while discussing women's rights, and providing thousands of women with actual resources for very real, dangerous issues are not?)
I feel like I am being gaslit by reality.
It just sucks because I got redpilled HARD over lockdown (had been a slow creep for years since the late oughts); it was natural that I had been feeling increasingly isolated due to being a gay man of color approaching 30 this year. But now, it's no longer simply isolating, it feels like there's a bizarro all-out hidden war. And the veil has been lifted and I can't look away.
Edit: Sorry for all the typos in the title; it's super late/early.
