Reddit has a huge list of free speech alternatives over at r/Redditalternatives. Some are more toxic than others, and a lot of them are not very big.

Here's where you can find the main list: https://www.reddit.com/r/RedditAlternatives/comments/hi97fz/list_of_active_reddit_alternatives_v5/

There is no downvote button on Saidit. So if you think a post/comment is insightful, you click on the lightbulb. If you think a post/comment is fun or funny you click on the happy face. The happy face was supposed to be for humorous posts/comments, but I think some people use it to laugh at commentors personally. So far it's not been used that often in that way, as far as I can tell.

J.K. Rowling, Bari Weiss and Noam Chomsky Among Dozens to Sign Open Letter Calling for End to Cancel Culture by Adrift in news

I'm a little confused by what you're attempting to say. Are you simply pointing out that the oppression of open debate finds its roots in fascism?

I am fascinated by Wilhelm Reich though, even though I think he was a bit of a loon with all of that sexual energy orgone stuff. I recently read Peter Reich's book, A Book of Dreams which is basically his recount of his childhood memories of his father.

Here's the open letter on Harper's website, including signatories:

Some of the more interesting signatories I noticed besides Rowling and Chomsky included Steven Pinker, Salman Rushdie, and Wynton Marsalis.

I love the fact that people with different opinions are all allowed here. by [deleted] in whatever

The racists and antisemites seem to be attempting to take over every new platform that don't outright ban them. They've already taken strong root here on Saidit unfortunately. I don't know what the option is, as I'd like this community to be as free a place for open dialogue and ideas as possible, but as it slowly morphs into another Voat, I'm not interested in sticking around. Hopefully the admins will come up with a solution and intervene somehow. Even if it's to purge some of the more active hardcore racists off the site so that the community can become more diverse.

This racist trash has nothing to do with being a right winger liking diversity of opinion. It's Neo-Nazi bullshit. You want a far-right, white supremacist Reddit style hang out, go to Voat. Don't trash this place up with your racist filth.

What a load of racist garbage. Go back to Stormfront, and get this stuff off of Saidit before it goes down the drain like Voat.

Newcomers: Let's make sure Saidit is better than Reddit. This shouldn't be a place to waste time, but to have productive and intelligent discussions. by Aureus in whatever

Yeah, even though I'm not really a feminist myself, I'm glad to see the GenderCritical exodus here. Hopefully it'll help balance the dialogue so that the site doesn't lean too far left or right.

Yeah, the crazy anti-semite/racists have been attempting to hijack all of the anti-censorship Reddit alternatives like they did Voat. I'm all for uncensored speech, but I don't want this site to become yet another echo chamber slum. I'm hoping that the influx of new members from the ban will result in moving the needle back to the middle before it goes too far right. I'm pretty apolitical. Probably centrist, and not much of a feminist, but I'm glad that GenderCritical found their way here. Maybe their left-leaning voices will act as a counterbalance to a lot of the far right voices here, and it will result in an admixture of people with all sorts of views rather than the hegemony of Reddit and Voat. Probably not, but I can hope at least.

Reddit is DEFINITELY not pro Israel.

the state of hypocrisy on reddit by poestal in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]Adrift 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I think only half of these are true, the other half, not so much. I don't think anyone should necessarily get banned for denying the holocaust, but it's a really stupid thing to deny. Probably not that many people have ever heard anyone deny Holodomor or the Gulags and so I'd be surprised if anyone were usually banned for that. Typically people who deny the holocaust do it for racist reasons. I'd be surprised if that were true for Holodomor or Gulags.

Zionists are routinely defamed on Reddit as is Hasidism. Islam isn't something Redditors like so much either. In fact, Reddit is pretty anti-religion altogether. Christianity definitely gets more hate than the others, but it's not like they're pro-Islam or anything.

No one should be calling for violence or insulting people because of their race. Reddit may be hypocritical in the last few ways, but this dude sounds like he just wants to complain that he can't be a piece of crap and get away with it.

Creating Christ [Podcast] by Mnemonic in Christianity

It's definitely Christ Myth theory stuff. Robert Price is one of the 2 or 3 historians in the world right now with semi-relevant credentials who's still pushing this idea. The vast majority of historians who study the period, both conservative and critical, have found the theory absurd, and, really, psuedohistory at this point.
