Most of these sound like pretty obvious stuff, why the buzzwords then?

misgendering people

Agreed but that can be very easily abused, I can change my gender every week while I'm online (it's the internet lol) and get anyone banned if he/she refers to me by last week's pronouns. Not very practical I'd say.

redpill/incel propaganda

I thought we were avoiding buzzwords? Where do you draw the line between "propaganda" and "facts"?

Because we live in a white supremacist society

No, just you. The world is not america and other countries do exist, I'll have you know, see my other reply.

It's been super practical on Raddle so far, and not abused

and we have had people genuinely figuring out their gender stuff who have changed their pronouns regularly, without so much as a hint of trouble

f/trans especially is good with it, obviously

Showing a suspicion that it will be abused around trans things generally reflects dodginess from the assumer, not the other way around

and yeah you're full of red flags for dodgy beliefs, its quite interesting that you think of yourself as good at this
I hope you stick around some and figure out more

Nice to know being against racism is a red flag and a dodgy belief. I, too, hope to stick around long enough to know how to be racist proper :)

Perfect example of the "don't be a douche" rule. If you don't know the person then use gender neutral pronouns, don't assume people's gender. If someone asks you to refer to them differently, don't be a douche about it. It's not difficult. You're being unnecessarily combative & paranoid. No one's going to trap you by switching their pronouns between posts.

Where do you live that hasn't been shaped by white supremacy & colonialism?

Fair enough.

don't assume people's gender

Why not? I mean everybody here's been assuming my nationality and political side ever since I got in, what's stopping them from assuming my gender as well?

Where do you live

So you can make more assumptions? Nah, pass.

hasn't been shaped by white supremacy & colonialism?

Beats me

If you're from one of the countries on that list, and have a genuine concern about non-white racial supremacy and the policies of this site about it, people here would actually take those discussions seriously. People here have had plenty of discussion about Euro-centrism & American-centrism.

But as far as I can tell that's not the case, given your bad-faith shallow opposition to just about everything. You're just using the talking points to be combative about radical leftist politics.

edit: And white supremacy absolutely affects some, or even all, of the countries on that list. Afghanistan, Iran, and Japan in particular, all being victims of the worst of America's racist foreign policy.

How would you know? You don't know me, and you don't get to tell me what box I fit in. You don't want users to assume others' genders but would happily assume others' entire existence, amazing... Also since when were certain beliefs exclusive only to certain races or inhabitants of certain countries? Isn't that discrimination based on race, or "racism" as I like to call it?

all being victims of the worst of America's racist foreign policy

As much as I'd love for you to elaborate on this point, that's not what you said. You said "white colonialism and supremacy", and I proved that point is wrong. You don't just change the goalposts.

I said "white supremacy & colonialism", not "white colonialism & supremacy." You even quoted me saying that. Even if I had said the latter, it would clearly mean white colonialism and white supremacy, not white colonialism and supremacy-in-general. So yeah, more bad faith arguing.

I'm not assuming anything based on your race, nation, etc. I'm assuming it based on you being an unrelenting reactionary shithead at every opportunity so far.

You better drop it, you're crossing into banable territory, specially since this is not the sub for this discussion.

I thought this was "Friday Free Talk"? As in talk about whatever?

Go ahead and tell me what rule I broke then ban me, please.

Just call them faggots and you'd both be even :)

That's insta-ban material but people seem to have decided to be a little more hands-off with new people so far.

I'd missed that. Have already asked u/ziq to deal with this turd (I've been dealing with a lot today in my afk life).

They didn't do a bad job of seeming like they were in good faith initially despite their shittiness, but that pretty quickly went out the window.

Does it count if they're not gay though? ;)

Feel free to report me by the way, I didn't harass or attack anyone so I don't see how my comment breaks the rules. Also wouldn't that make the original comment I'm replying to "insta-ban material" as well, since it contains a slur?
