It started as a 4chan meme to get people to bite onto the fact that it's not okay to be white and to see how gullible the population is. There's nothing wrong with the statement.

The frustration comes from taking a hard line against a relatively small group of people worshipping where you can easily control for distancing and safety, vs governments being very limp dicked about any sort of enforcement of social distancing in protests and instead of disavowing them they are encouraged.

No but it was flippant towards people being upset over being told how to worship when there are mass protests going on that are actually being encouraged by governments that have exponentially more chances to spread COVID than singing does. My point is why is one allowed but the other isn't?

More than this it showed that the "crisis" of hate crimes is clearly not as bad as the media portrays if people have to manufacture incidents to victimize themselves. Also that hate crimes against whites was incredibly under reported and never resulted in a media frenzy, exposing journalists for opportunistic race baiting scum.

Typically if people are going to be doing open source intel gathering they aren't usually combing through your comments, they'll take the quickest way to find where/who you are which will be matching up phone numbers, emails, and physical addresses anywhere they are listed.

LE involvement would be a different story though and they wouldn't need your comments to find out who you are anyways unless they are building a case with your comment history.

Burden of proof is always on the presenter. I will say shouting "SOURCE SOURCE" is really annoying especially when it's coming from a bad faith actor, but it is a good idea to keep sources on hand for when they do. Typically they'll either A) ignore it and ghost you or B) attack the source and in both cases you've already won.

Never thought I would say this but a feminist is actually making sense, and a lot of what you are saying I can get on board with. I think it's a fairly common thing to believe in equal treatment of women, and especially with the MRA point you've made I have also noticed that instead of focusing on betterment of Men it focuses on why women are trash and while there are valid criticisms to be made of women especially with later waves of feminism, it's not ultimately constructive or men focused.

I honestly don't disagree with anything you say above, the problem nowadays comes from people who view feminism as explicitly "anti-men" which isn't unwarranted due to the prevailing voices instead of "pro woman" (which is a mirror reflection of the MRA problem). Thanks for the insightful comment.

Leaving Reddit for trying erase women. by hylia in Introductions

[–]King_Brutus 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I can get behind this. I do think that gender dysphoria is a mental illness (not in a derogatory way) but that it deserves professional treatment and therapy, and that the ACTUAL number of people who should transition should be incredibly rare because it's so often regretted and is more of a trend now because someone said "I wish I had boobs" once or felt feminine for a month.

I don't think it's unreasonable though for diagnosed gender dysphorics who go through a transition should be respected as humans though, but I also don't think it's unfair to say that they aren't actually women and that shouldn't be treated as hate speech.

I think the problem most people have is that the Barbery slave trade or Saharan slave trade are brought up as whataboutisms to the slave trade that occurred in the US and doesn't do anything to address the current problem.

Now I'm not saying that to minimize any of the slave trades, but I think it's been historically demonstrated that the US slave trade brought several problems to the black population in the US. Whether or not those effects are still accurately felt beyond self-victimization or if they need to be fixed (mostly through reparations) is an entirely different subject.

I believe in free speech, but I also believe in a degree of sub autonomy. If someone wants to have an echo chamber that's fine but that just gives ammunition against their views if they won't allow debate.

Well it's 100% infiltrated by feds and every major company actively monitors it for troubling content. Anyone who actively uses the chans and doesn't take measures to protect their anonymity online are fools.

I came here because I don't want to be told what to think. I believe this is the most evil year the world has ever seen and I think the most important thing right now to the common man/woman is freedom of speech. don't like 4chans format so here I am. by coin_boi in Introductions

I don't think there's any censorship on 4chan or 8chan. At least in my experience I've seen the range of opinions even on /b and /pol which people constantly decry as FAR RIGHT NEO NAZIS and really it's diverse as any other site.

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

That's good, honestly. There shouldn't be an expectation that everyone in a forum has the same ideas.

That's the deal with having an online forum dedicated to a form of free speech. Responsibility should be on the user to hide things or ignore things that they don't like, whereas places like Reddit actively encouraged their users to seek out things that made them uncomfortable and remove them.

The "fun" button is quite enjoyable.

I can tell you also that I have met very few actual outright "neo nazis" in my time online and FAR more out and proud "communists" and "marxists".

Just anecdotal

What, in your mind, is "hardcore racism"? Because on Reddit it was as benign as "hey black people do bad things too and here is proof" then BAN. I agree that I don't want it to devolve into a place with no discussion and just hate but I think free speech should mean that the line of what is acceptable be pushed and the onus of not engaging with content that makes you uncomfortable is on the user and not the site unless it's 1) illegal or 2) breaks sitewide rules (of which in its later life Reddit made far too easy).

There's some censorship going on in the newly popular feminist subs and it needs to be openly addressed. by ccccccc in SaidIt

Everywhere that I've seen where SJW and far left voices are pushed into spaces the less that free speech is allowed to thrive simply because it's no longer about debating or conversation, but about "being on the right side of history" because you can't be convinced that anything is wrong and every action is "for the greater good". Every single time.

Yup, the more their own chamber can be left alone the less I have to hear them bitch and moan about men.

I think it's a decent idea to prevent spam, but yeah during this exodus specifically it's a problem.

I love that there's no downvote button, it makes people disagree with their words!

Honestly, I don't need it to "beat" reddit. I just need a chill forum to waste time now and then.

0 actual communists in any position of power

yet.

Also, marxists that run Reddit clearly don't care about freedom of speech as is evident by the constant banwaves and demonizing of people they consider "the majority".

That's what communities are for and why they should be able to operate independently. If a sub wants to shit post then let them, if a sub wants to have serious discussion then let them.
