Welcome. We've got radical feminists, neo nazis, Christian conservatives and not a lot else. The only thing anyone has in common here is that they're all anti-porn... and they don't employ much nuance when they come to defining it.

I only come here because I'm "gender critical" (from a non ideological standpoint) and was given the impression you didn't have to be a radical feminist to get along in the GC community. This is not the case.

I've go to Ruqqus mostly and it feels like there's less of an extreme there. You do still get people from the fringes but the centre feels a lot more fleshed out there.

    It wasn't that the alt-right (or sameoldrightbut2.0andupdatedvocabulary) had no viable counter arguments, it had to do more so with both sides being very tribal in their approach to any issue and the general lack of interest or an open mind to the arguments of the other side. But one side had the authority of controlling the flow and they shut the gates as they wanted to.

    The weather is still tribal in nature and it is rather evident by the inability of the said alt-right to escape the rabbit hole despite distancing from their left counterparts, the arguments and language, and the general nature in approaching any problem remains quite the same. The extreme positions taken by either due to their proximity to each other hasn't subsided even after the proximity has been dissolved. The problem is simply tribalism and i'm afraid it is here to stay. It can only be overcome with an enormous amount of active effort to communicate from parts of either side which none appear to be interested in investing themselves in as it is believed to be of no reward to do so.

      The alt right is very interested in debate because that's one of the ways to expose the lies of the leftist propaganda.

      I have to disagree with that. Because for the numerous times i have tried to present an argument with the said alt-types, most simply wont acknowledge a simple logical fact and expect the counter argument to be made from within their own comfortable ideological bubble, when these encounter an immature and easily frustrated member of their opposing tribe, such examples of "LEFTIST COMMIE EXPOSED!!!" , "ALT-RIGHT NAZI DESTROYED!!!" type of content comes in to existence. To put it rather simply, most alt right chronic "arguers" wants someone to explain to them the difficulties of running uphill through using only the parameters of their experience of striding downhill, which in itself is an illogical viewpoint to the problem being discussed. They build their arguments based them going downhill and keep circling around it claiming uphill is a hoax. Replace alt-right with the extremists of the other side, you have a perfect disaster of a society where these two groups makes the loudest of public opinion and drives the social optics.

      You can put your opinion to the test. They have a subsaiddit here s/debatealtright and I'll happily change my mind if you expose them for what you say they are.
      I have yet to see what you're expressing here.

        Race is real and has a biological basis.
