I'd say both ActualLesbians & LesbianActually do.

Oh, of course. Actuallesbians is just a site for extremely fetishistic men now. "Look at my Big Dick Energy!"

Slogan 1: "We need our healthcare to cover medical transition because this is a medical issue!"

Slogan 2: "It's not a medical issue/mental illness, you bigot!"

Slogan 1 is the trans movement's real goal, Slogan 2 is the claim used by the trans movement to pretend that they're a "Gay Rights 2.0" movement. But the reality is that being gay does not cost you a single cent or require you to look a certain way.

The small subs will probably get the axe if they grow much bigger, unfortunately. I'll take a look though, thanks.

They really won't stop until all dissent is wiped out, huh?

Yup, pretty much. Was there this much censorship on Reddit when gay marriage was being debated?? Something makes me suspect there wasn't...

Never even heard of FourthWaveWomen. They'll probably get banned when they're big enough.

Same with ActuallyLesbian. I'll be fascinated to see it happen, though: Reddit admins' justifications for banning all the other real lesbian subreddits was that they were "just radfem subreddits"* and ActuallyLesbian openly supports and allows transwomen.

*(which isn't true... most lesbians are not radfems, we're just gay and don't want to date men.)

I've lurked on TiA for years, and have checked there almost every single day in the past couple of months. Thanks, TiA mods, for taking care of that place on Reddit as a last oasis of sanity.

There are so few places of sanity left... I've resorted to looking for it in comment sections in news articles. Why is discussion labeled "hate"?

I'm a lesbian woman not a gay guy so I followed AGB but not regularly; I might've missed some details. Here's a discussion about it that I think sums it up, though: https://old.reddit.com/r/askgaybros/comments/v81baq/moderation_update_june/ibo3ckz/

Valk is the guy who modded AGB for so long and had a hands-off approach.

What happened to LGBdroptheT? by fudgemintday in Lesbians

[–]reluctant_commenter 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

But I still don't see why the saidit itself has been locked down. It's a shame because there was some good discussion and information sharing.

But definitely bad faith sh*t-stirrers are a possibility.

It is absolutely because of bad-faith shit-stirrers.

(Daily mail article comment sections are absolutely full of comments from men like this.)

Yup. I totally know what you're talking about and I've seen those.

So yes there have been some people who post on LGBdroptheT that I vehemently disagree with. But it is a shame that the sub has gone, because I think that there was a lot of good discussion.

Completely agree! I am really sad about the change... it'll be harder for people to access an LGB community this way. But unfortunately, it seems necessary.

I 100% agree with the points you made (and although I didn't read most of that thread, I think your characterization of it is accurate as well).

To add to what you wrote: I think the issue with the sub, is that some people are going on there to take Poster A's position in a bad-faith manner, simply to sow division among the group-- perhaps even similarly to what happened to s/lesbians a while back...? That is my best current understanding of the situation.

It is private. I'm still unclear about what exactly happened, but it seemed like the issue is with other bad actors on Saidit. There have been a couple of homophobic users harassing DropTheT for a while now-- and it looks like things finally came to a head, of some sort...?

If you are looking for LGB content, I still mod s/LGBmemes and have no plans to make it private. There's not much discussion... but there are memes, lol.

Hey, sorry no one ever responded to you-- I used to be on some of them, but they all got banned during the SuperStraight purge, sadly. I know a few of the people on those ones joined Saidit, but I have no idea how many private lesbian subs there are on Reddit right now, if there are any.

TransCat in Space 1: Gender Astronomy 101 - new series on AGP and gender dysphoria from Schrodinger's Transcat by reluctant_commenter in itsafetish

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

Someone here kindly shared a great video last year about autogynephilia. The "transcat" Youtuber who made that video recently started a series exploring how AGP overlaps with transgender identification and gender dysphoria. This is the first video in the series.

Overall, I would recommend the series; it's somewhat slower-paced than the "Still A Lie" video but provides much more comprehensive background information on gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, and theories of why behaviors vary by sex (innate vs. learned).

Social media signaling by reluctant_commenter in LGBmemes

[–]reluctant_commenter[S] 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

This person's experience is that when they make a typical post on social media-- a few people respond (represented by the small crowd in the top right panel). If they make a post on social media that mentions the fact that they are gay-- then a ton more people respond (represented by the massive crowd in the bottom right panel).

One reason for this difference is that many of the people in the bottom right panel may be trying to signal that they are supportive of gay people, LGBTQ+ rights, or otherwise publicly signal that they're openminded and gain social credit that way. (That's the cynical interpretation, of course; it's also possible that some just aren't interested in the typical posts of the gay person, but still want to communicate that they support that person!)
