Looks sorta like Twitter, but with less censorship?

The current mod team doesn't have the bandwidth for any more social media sites, especially one that requires constant engagement like that. We're down to just two of us at the moment, the rest have stepped away (temporarily or permanently) due to personal life.

Our mod applications are always open, but no one has applied since our time on Reddit. I get it, it's a volunteer job and a commitment - and once you start modding, it does change the way you see and interact with subs. It's not for the faint of heart. But we're not going to grow and branch out until we have more mods.

You're gonna need to give some evidence of that.

Not that I don't believe you, but there are plenty of people here who are new to what's going on. And this site overall is built on the Pyramid Of Debate.

So source your claim, give some proof that people can review and discuss.

Once the pedos are done and over them when they age-out, the abusives can take over with the "adult" victims.

Removing under rules 2 and 3. This is better suited for s/Gendercritical or s/ThereAreTwoGenders, or if you have some evidence, s/ItsAFetish

s/LGBDropTheT does not state trans is a fetish. That is not our purpose.

Some individuals may believe it, and that's fine. But in terms of our group as a whole, we believe trans is different and separate from sexuality, and that sexuality should be our focus. LGB need to separate from the colonization of LGBTQIA++++, and we in this sub are separatists.

Trans people who recognize biological sex, and therefore their own sexuality, are welcome here. They can and still will be LGB. Trans people who don't understand are not welcome.

There is nothing about the person you're sharing that indicates they feel one way or the other about sexuality. They are trans MTF, that's it.

Our sub doesn't exist so you can spread hatred towards trans people, so don't make us pander to you, mkay?

I noticed the same thing. Her selfies show her with the dead eyes of someone suffering from years of depression and internalized suffering.

She also had a child 2 years ago (at 21), baby daddy is not in the picture, and transitioned 1 year later. How much do you wanna bet PPD impacted her life choices too?

I understand what she's doing to our gay bros, but this girl is really lost. I feel bad for her.

Not sure how many of you are still on Reddit, but if you are ...

Reddit is updating site behavior on blocking users. If you block someone (or they block you), neither of you will be able to see each other's profiles or activity. The only exception will be for moderator activity. Mods can still see any comments/posts you make in their subs, and users will still see mod-distinguished (green) comments/posts.

The updates are in-progress but not yet complete. I just blocked my own test account to see what happens. My test account could still see me, but I couldn't see my test account. If I went to a direct link to content my test account posted, there was notification it was a blocked user on the post and an option to click-to-view the content. But comments my test account made (and all comments under it) already display as deleted/removed until I un-blocked.

So anyway, if you're still active on Reddit, true user or troll ... block these accounts:

Those are widely-used mod bots that auto-ban you from SUB-A due to your activity in SUB-B. Once the full block behavior rolls out, they won't be able to auto-ban you since they can't see what you're doing elsewhere ;) Mods can also set up their own independent bots that report to them offsite of course, which some absolutely do ... but those 2 bots are very commonly used across hundreds of large subs.

If you ARE NOT a mod and just a regular user, another bot you may want to consider blocking is: https://old.reddit.com/user/sub_mentions

What that one does is look for mention of sub names all across Reddit, and then emails ModMail so mods are alerted that their sub is being discussed. We used to use that bot (among other things) to stay on top of brigades coming from others.

EDIT: if you block nathan131412 as suggested below, you will disrupt the ability of an archiving site to memorialize and provide evidence. I'm sure the archiving site will work around it eventually, but remember, your anonymous internet privacy also means no more proof of what the group goes through publicly. It's your choice and you should do what is best for you, but I want you to have all the information and nuances when you make a decision.

Beware, fellow readers .. the entire article is a story delving into deep mental illness.

Here's a small snapshot, as warning:

Weeks before my procedure, I got a block of clay and sat meditating and molding by feel, letting my body answer. The resulting phallus was the exact size I’d been requesting. For days, I lay on the floor on and off in the sunlight coming into my living room, asking my ancestors and transcestors for guidance. Some people might kill for this kind of access and choice. Certainly many, many, many, many people have died in the fight for it. One night, I woke up from a dead sleep, and all I heard was: Take the big dick.

LGB is about sexuality, we're not here to talk shit about "clown profiles" or focus on their ridiculousness. Why would we divert our entire purpose and community for that? Think of how terrible that is for LGB, and how focusing on others got us where we are today.

"Clowns" is not relevant unless they're impacting LGB, and there are flairs for that. We are not s/TumblrInAction and we are not s/ThereAreTwoGenders.

If you (or others) can't find the appropriate flair when you're posting, it probably means you're sharing the wrong content for our sub. There are very few posts we can't flair appropriately - those we can't typically hit several talking points, so we wait for the community to decide through comments.

Trolling, for sure. Using their words/phrases, but in just the right way.

Can't use the phrase you said because it's too much LGBDropTheT - that would end up in a ban right away because it looks like I'm trying to collect people and reform our sub there under a different name.

Something stupid that would trigger their rage, but there's no loophole in the ever-expanding Reddit rule 1 that they can use to report it.

Us mods have discussed this.

Our thought is that if we had an official Twitter, it would just currently be a backup to this sub. If we get banned/removed or the site goes down, it would be a place where everyone can look to so they can find out where we are next.

That's as far as we've thought about it, because none of us can wade into the cesspool that is Twitter. That social media platform is a job of its own.

If we had a mod who wanted to take it beyond announcements, and into exposure and getting our message out there to more people ... that would be welcome. But we aren't even getting general mod applications on their own, let alone someone who wants to take on a social media account and grow it.

Shit, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with that. I know all about the narcissistic family, and the flying monkeys/enablers that come along with it.

Dealing with that person involves never mentioning reality, i.e. anyone who does will be punished.

My life.

My next comments are going to sound terrible to anyone who hasn't dealt with it.

The primary narcissist in my immediate family died last year, and I'm OK with it. I don't feel sadness or remorse, I don't mourn for the loss ... I actually feel relieved that I never have to deal with any of it ever again. I've been low contact and gray-rocking for years, and now I can just be myself. I can let down my barriers/walls, finally, and it's freeing.

The side-effect is that I have very little tolerance anymore for similar behavior. My compassion and willingness to work with other people is fading away. I do still compromise, don't get me wrong ... but I'm much more quick to shut down bullshit and red flags, and don't play nice anymore.

His kind has been claiming TERFs are abusive and harmful already, so it would just fuel the narrative if real women fight back and become the problem. "Gender Identity" has become a legal protected class in many areas of the world.

The actual issue is fetishes and pedophilia are becoming accepted and mainstream, and WE ALL need to fight back. This is not men-v-women, this is not traditional-v-liberal, this is not right-v-left, or even LGB-v-TQ.

This is sick and disgusting degeneracy coming out of the shadows of the rich and ruling class, and washing over every single one of us real people below them. We need to set aside our personal fights and join hands to end this madness together.

Us real people can go back to fighting about our different beliefs and hatred of each other another day. We won't have the freedom to fight among each other when they eradicate and erase our actual lives.

This mental illness is infesting our society and laws, and will end us all. They are becoming us legally so they can rewrite us all in their image.

Would you rather have a childless daughter or a slut daughter? by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I don't think of it as "men are responsible for everything so the rest of us can exist" and "women are responsible for accepting the fallout/compromising after that". I don't have the answers to the creation of existence, but I can say that I do not believe humans are the foundation, and therefore, neither men or women are since we're just categories of human.

I think both men and women end up in our own roles and relations to each other, and neither can take credit for the other - both of us find our place together.

But being a slut doesn't work out for either of us. On the other side of "daughter is a slut" is "son is a slut". That's the parasitic relationship. A slutty girl gets dick from guys who don't care about the future or anyone's worth. Your son chooses to fuck slut pussy instead of bettering himself.

If you feel being a father and patriarch is the best a man can be, and your son believes that too, then your son wouldn't be fucking a slut. He should be finding a woman with the same values and building a future with his family. It's not the sluts fault he isn't, that's his decision.

A childless woman is not a parasite or deserving of death. A childless woman isn't depriving a man of being a father and patriarch - she is excluding herself from "the deal" she didn't agree to, and allowing him to decide who he wants to be with.

Do you believe women exist for the sole reason of making babies and submitting to men?

Their sub/premise should not be considered supportive of our cause, even if some of their users may be. They are satire and ridicule, meant for people with a thick skin and who can enjoy some roasting, even of themselves and their own beliefs when featured.

Would you rather have a childless daughter or a slut daughter? by trident765 in nonmorons

[–]TumbleweedFireflies 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I would rather have a childless daughter.

A slut goes through a ton of turmoil and fucked-up feelings while she's living and fucking everyone that comes along. The people she brings into her life are not positive for her, and they are not helping themselves ... everyone is very hedonistic and self-centered, and using sex to make themselves feel better. I wouldn't want my daughter to experience the pain and anguish that comes from not knowing who she is and what horrible things everyone thinks of her while she's a slut, and then the overwhelming anxiety once she finally figures it out and has to work through it to become a better person and find peace. If she ever can, because she's always going to be judged as a "slut" for her past.

A childless daughter does still experience troubles, don't get me wrong. But she has made a decision for herself, for her lifetime and any partner she chooses. A childless daughter already has been forward-thinking, and will be more able to shut-down any negativity towards her chosen lifestyle. She chooses her "family" and community based on shared values, rather than bloodline or who fucked her best.

Removing under rule 2. This is better suited for s/Gendercritical or s/ThereAreTwoGenders

Please keep in mind you are posting in an LGB sub. We've had to remove a number of your posts recently because they're referring to trans/cis or gender identity generally, not about how LGB are impacted by it or why we should pay attention and make the matter heard in our space.

The short version of Rule 2 states:

Appropriate Content: Why LGB and TQ+ should no longer be part of the same organization. LGB news, concerns, history, and/or personal affairs. Other topics must demonstrate applicability towards LGB or "dropping the T".

The longer version, and FAQ, can be found in our Wiki here: https://www.saidit.net/s/LGBDropTheT/wiki/rules#wiki_2._appropriate_content

We're allowing this post to stay because the pictured user is claiming his GF has suddenly declared their relationship "gay sex" since his verbal transition to female.

While it's technically allowed because it represents colonization of lesbians, this kind of material is typically best for s/ItsAFetish. This is obviously porn fanfic of an AGP.

OP, and others who read this ... please do us a favor in the future and provide your own explanation and context. It makes all of our lives easier.

This person does represent the "trying to figure things out" young bisexual. Unfortunately, she is learning in the age of labels and virtue signaling, so she isn't seeking out what bisexuals experience, she is trying to fit herself into a gender/inclusive box, and also "trans".

It's normal for young Bi women to experiment and get hella hard crushes on other women despite actually being more of a Kinsey 1 or 2. It's part of us figuring out whether we're homosexual, straight, or bisexual.

Bisexuality is the only "sexuality is a spectrum" one out there, and the label of "bi" doesn't say where we are on the spectrum. Our foundation is "we are attracted to both sexes", and the spectrum is how much or little, and why/how.

She did say this, "I'm a bit disappointed about my attraction to women disappearing like this." That makes me think she's more of a Kinsey 4, maybe even leaning towards Kinsey 5/FEBfem. Her attraction has changed since she took male hormones though, which speaks to what hormones and pharmaceuticals can do to disrupt a human.

If you want to post the original NYT article, that does have a little more bearing on our sub since the author talks about having a girlfriend, so modern wokeism would lump him in as being a part of LGB: https://archive.ph/EVkwP

But even then, it's a reach since the subject matter isn't about being LGB or the greater alphabet umbrella, it's about being trans.

Anyone know what was in the drunken tweet Arty Morty sent out? It seems to have caused some drama... by [deleted] in LGBDropTheT

[–]TumbleweedFireflies[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

Arty is a long-time supporter and advocate for LGBDTT, even if he doesn't come right out and mention us in his videos. He has been a regular user with us since our time on Reddit, and is still here with us now.

Another user shared an image of what his Tweet was supposedly about - if that's an accurate screenshot, then it's about RadFems, not LGB, so doesn't matter here.

I'm locking this thread because we don't want to create a witch-hunt or internet-cancelling against him. If Twitter users are fluttering about, crying and upset, then it's already started and we don't want to feed the fire.

We will contact him through ModMail to get more information, and to see if he is interested in discussing what's occurred. If he is not, we will remove any further posts about it.

This is really sad, while also infuriating (on behalf of our gay bros).

Her experience is what women who are into men go through until we learn about boundaries and to stand up for our own needs. We all deserve respect and mutual pleasure and understanding, and young women and young men who are growing up have a tough time sorting that shit out together. Her lack of a backbone is acting as a beacon signal for harm and being taken advantage of.

She's deluded herself into thinking that her "ships" of gay bros will magically change her experience with men, but it doesn't. Gay boys and men still have to learn their own way with each other, and gay men don't exist to validate women's emotional damage and needs.

She's not meeting gay dudes. She's meeting bi or straight dudes who are predators and taking advantage of a desperate woman. And she doesn't even realize it. She's blaming gay men even though they aren't the problem(s) at all.

The only thing about the regular rainbow flag is that at this point it makes me wonder "is this really a safe space, or did they use the one without the trans colors on purpose?" :("

Yes, LGB people who existed in the 1970s made the rainbow flag SPECIFICALLY to exclude the trans flag ... which wasn't even created until 1999.

I love food and my belly shows it, happy to share some favorites!

I just made a green bean casserole from scratch, would you (or anyone) like the recipe? I've also got garlic roast beef, sausage-stuffed apples, and crockpot carnitas/pork or crockpot carne asada/beef steak. Crockpot shredded chicken is another thing I make, which is hella easy and adaptable to any flavor at all. A simple side-snack for nearly everyone is tomato/cheese/basil on toothpicks.

Maybe SaidIt users should make a sub for all of this at the end of the day though, maybe even 2 subs. s/recipes and s/slowcookerrecipes. Whatcha think?

I'm fine creating subs, but I can't mod anything else right now. So I would need someone else to be head mod and taking care of rules, design, etc.

Note that the angle the plaintiffs are taking is based on religious belief:

Several of the plaintiffs said that being in custody with trans women violates their religious beliefs.

In California, that's probably about the only angle anyone can take now. Gender Identity is a legally protected class in the state, but it can't supersede federal law.

Something I note in the article is this:

Woman II Woman’s founder Amie Ichikawa has said that she supports the safety of trans women in prison. However, she also claims that SB 132 allows “sexual predators to slip in under the umbrella of transgender identity.” Her claims echo right-wing depictions of trans women as sexual predators.

She literally said "sexual predators will lie and pretend to be trans". And this garbage rag journalist claims "she's saying trans people are predators".

LGBTQNation is promoting this. It's a media source which is supposedly about LGB, but focusing on TQ+ only.

They are saying "TERF inmates sue California for placing transgender women in female prisons". And demonstrating erasure of biological sex (and therefore same-sex attraction) through their virtue-signaling.

How can I date and find a boyfriend if I am a gay transgender man who doesn't pass... by Chunkeeguy in LGBDropTheT

I think the guy I was replying to didn't realize that there is a troll on this sub who keeps making accounts like this, so out of context, they probably thought a ban for a comment was unreasonable.

That *could* be true.

Or it could be yet one more new alt account intended to stir up negativity and divisiveness, but when regular real people had answers and opinions, gave up on that new persona since it wasn't getting anywhere.

I mean, it was a brand new user and you responded in a reasonable way, and then they deleted everything ... even their own account.

Not sure what the user before you said, they deleted their comments and account before I got here.

People are focusing on the "fetishistic and homophobic women" statement ... maybe it's because you and the other user who deleted their account/comments were the only ones to speak up. I couldn't even formulate a response when I saw it, at least the two of you did, so thank you.

That statement was a part of the problem, as well as bringing RadFems into the conversation for literally no reason. Sound familiar to anyone?

It's interesting to me that no one is thinking twice about "straight females only need to do the bare minimum effort of opening their legs and straight men would be queuing to get a piece of her pussy but yet they decide to chase after men who aren't attracted to them". It's stereotyping men as sex-crazed opportunists, and women as only validated by being fucktoys.

Imagine if someone came into our sub and said:

bi males only need to do the bare minimum effort of opening their legs and gay men would be queuing to get a piece of his bussy but yet they decide to chase after women who aren't attracted to them

Change the sexualities around to one of LGB, and there would be a riot about homophobia/biphobia, and how wrong it is to make such broad, sweeping statements. If it's not OK to generalize LGB like that, it's also not OK to generalize straight people either.

That's a really interesting and good thing to share! How we compare our same-sex attraction to homosexuals, and judge ourselves as unworthy or needing to measure up.

Does anyone else find men playing "lesbian" roles and women playing "gay man" roles problematic? by UWUness in LGBDropTheT

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

Nowadays, I find men playing lesbians (or bisexual women) problematic. Because yes, men generally cannot and do not understand what women go through in our lives. They have to ask and be taught, just like women have to when playing male characters. Every person learns at their own pace, which is OK, but that also means they shouldn't be given free reign to represent us before they do.

Gender and sex has become politicized, and there is no longer even a pretense that LGB people are being heard. It's all about the clout and recognition.

If a male actor can express what women go through in a true way, then I applaud him. For example, Louie Anderson in "Baskets". Not LGB, but very true to life.

Toss some brewer's yeast over it after it pops. Gives it a gentle cheesy and nutty flavor, without overwhelming the taste and texture of the popcorn.
