Nah man, Jews survived as a discrete ethnic group for over a thousand years without any sort of homeland. The idea that everyone will just leap into some racial melting pot is silly.

Thanks and I feel the same way. I love reading all kinds of ideological books and ideas because it helps me figure out what I think by seeing what I oppose. Even with GC stuff as a dude I would sometimes flick through the sub to know the terminology just because I find it interesting - if it matters to other people then it probably has something worth at least glancing over.

I have two older sisters who I love dearly so I always found it a bit stinging seeing unfairly negative sentiment towards guys on fem subs but I get it's mostly blowing off steam or the consequence of bad experiences. Lord knows there are male spaces which do it as bad and worse, especially in pornographic context which is just disturbing.

Fundamentally what the woke left thinks about sex doesn't matter - natural selection will obliterate their shit ideas on the individual and societal level because they are utterly anti-natal.

Sorry man, your white privilege means I get to call you fragile and if you find that offensive then that's just demonstrating your fragility! Genuinely though, fuck Reddit, fuck Robin DiAngelo.

Do not apply the Enlightenment notion of universal values / fairness to the Reddit admins. They have been infiltrated by post-modern wokies who literally do not believe in Western ideas of empiricism, rationality, universalism etc. They follow people like Foucault and believe in nothing but raw power. This was an application of that.

It's balls out retarded and represents the decline of the West as this mentality seeps into all of our institutions.

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

The same as any chauvinistic community - the advancement of people within at the expense of those without. They use sex but it could just as well be religion, race, language, political ideology etc.

I'd say they're pretty toxic because radical feminism is not the basis for a workable society. Other forms of community chauvinism can work, even if they produce undesirable outcomes (e.g. shithole Islamic countries still function even though they are shit - a rad fem matriarchy is just a bad meme that runs against evolutionary sex relations).

Does anyone else feel that division between 'Left' and 'right' only serves to further divide us? by Freshly_Squeezed in conspiracy

I don't even know what I am politically any more. I just see this ugly "progressivism" has taken control of the left wing and I know I'm not that. I also know that I like my country, the UK, and I am tired of having it treated like it's awful. We're not perfect but we are still good.

In my workplace I see growing animosity towards white men because they make up more of the board than proportional to the population but I have no fucking clue why that is meant to matter unless you presuppose race and sex as centrally important in how you view the world. They aren't nothing but they sure as hell aren't everything.

A man wanting to become a woman only wants the beauty of being a woman.

I'd sharpen this point to instead be something like: "A man who wants to be treated as a woman can never experience the physical, bodily reality of being a woman - only the superficial".

But look, the whole thing is frankly besides the point. There are women who feel the way you do and you deserve a space to talk with one another in a fashion you see fit. It's freedom of association and freedom of speech. You are denied the former in many legal contexts and the latter on many social media platforms.

I don't consider myself a feminist for a few reasons but fuck people who want to stop you from having conversations.
