The /f/GenderCritical one says "squat", implying that /u/ConnieCommie created it in order to prevent any transphobes from creating and utilizing a forum of the same name. Not sure what the point is, since the admins would remove TERF crap anyways.

Sounds fine. Unless people actively want to mod and run the spaces in non-reactionary ways I'll delete these effectively-empty forums. I'd do it even if they weren't reactionary if I was just doing normal spring cleaning since they have basically no content in them.

It's very easy to delete a forum, so having f/GenderCritical isn't doing much except clutter. If u/ConnieCommie wants to explain some use for it that I'm not aware of then ConnieCommie is welcome to engage us about it.

if you or foss gets a chance, there are a lot of uncategorized forums that could easily be moved to one of the categories.

But it's not worth moving empty forums, it's easier to spot them when they're in the uncategorized section so they can be deleted after a couple months e.g. f/HistoricalDiscussion which is redundant, empty and owned by a deleted account.

There's nothing reactionary on any of them. Stop being a dictator, jackass.

See the reddit subs they're based on...

I think f/KotakuInAction is the most suspicious one because the description doesn't feel ironic in its welcoming of GamerGaters.

KotakuInAction is the main hub for GamerGate on Raddle and welcomes discussion of community, industry and media issues in gaming and broader nerd culture including science fiction and comics.

But I dunno, until more content shows up, it's hard to tell. Maybe we can fill f/GenderCritical with anti-terf memes or something... (just saw that that was suggested by someone else.)

None of those subreddits meet any reasonable definition of the word reactionary. One of them is literally for radical feminists, one is for gamers and one is for funny internet drama. None of these things has anything to do with fascism, stop manipulating everyone into ostracizing people you don't like from the site based on nothing.

This is obviously a shameless attack on u/conniecommie.

I disagree. /r/GenderCritical is a trans-exclusionary radical feminist subreddit (the reddit version, not the Raddle one), /r/Drama was a far-right wing version of /r/SubredditDrama, and /r/KotakuInAction is a subreddit dedicated to "GamerGate", a sexist movement against... I'm not sure what, exactly. If the mods are trying to recreate these subreddits on Raddle, then they absolutely should be banned.

In this case, I agree with ziq. /f/Drama and /f/KotakuInAction seem to be based on their reddit counterparts, so they need to go. I don't see any point in squatting /f/GenderCritical, because the admins could easily remove any TERF detritus that pops up, so I don't care one way or another if this one gets removed.

It's not even slightly political. This is what I'm talking about, labeling things you don't like as reactionary just to silence them.

Okay, you're now showing dangerous signs as to what you really think and it's astonishing you're still trying this hard despite the obvious source of humor this is providing.

DaisyDisaster wrote

Uh, r/KotakuInAction is actually pretty well known as a place for GamerGaters, as is r/GenderCritical for TERFs.

No one attacked u/conniecommie in this thread. You're doing what you're accusing others of doing - trying to silence people you don't like.

Granted I don't know very much about the other two, but I've posted on r/drama for years and it's completely apolitical. It's like South Park.

haaha, what??

There is no such thing as "completely apolitical". South Park especially...

Edit: There is a lot to say for where to begin, but I'll at least put the effort into saying this:

Every action and expression is political. Often in this society, the platform for high distribution of expression is generally reserved for rich white cis men, like Matt and Trey. So the perspective they espouse becomes added to the plethora of other rich white cis male perspectives already repeating in every way to everyone. And that's just a small influence of their political bias coming out in their expression.

The entity that employs them is extremely political, and I bet Matt and Trey know what toes they can't step on, even if they try to push some buttons. But they are capitalist entertainers, and anything that is at their stage of distribution is irrelevant politically at best and propogating personal expressions of capitalism (read: capitalist propaganda) at worst. On top of this, they quite often feed into reactionary ideology and glorify horrible bigoted characters.

ok, that's all the energy I have for this...

ConnieCommie has created a dramatic environment since day one, they created an excuse, another isn't necessary.

Aside from that, a clear, plausible, legitimate case has been made to remove these boards. Hit the 'delete' button, ya'll.

I think until the creators of the forums in question have been given a chance to post on them and show us what they intend to use them for, no one has the right to label them reactionary.

I think people that make forums and don't do anything with them for months should lose those forums. It's clutter that makes it harder to find the active forums.

I don't need an excuse to attack conniecommie... All three of those subs are reactionary so stop trolling.

Ziq finally admits to attacking women.

Ask all the women ziq forced off of the site like ShiningWing, ConnieCommie and emma.

ziq has no problem with me. In fact Emma left to the drama you tools keep trying to revive as 'radicool praxis'.

You're one of the 3 people I just listed? No.

I'm a woman so clearly the problem is that you (aka Connie or Shining) are giant tools.

I'm a woman Ziq 'forced off of the site' and even I think you're being a total load of shit right now. Ziq doesn't attack women and despite my hate for them you shouldn't claim this bullshit. Its morally wrong to pin that on them.

How did he force emma and ConnieCommie off the site? Emma, as far as a know, left for her own reasons.
