You must go immediately to the Chestnut Tree café and drink gin until you earn your purity badge and believe that shit is really gold.

I just want to know whether this is fine or whether I have to hand in my membership card and piss off to Stormfront or similar now.

The same as happened to Card for his homophobia, Lovecraft for his racism, Dahl for his anti semitism or any other famous bigoted author, ie probably not a lot in grand scheme of things. People will probably still read them, people will call the authors out for the shitty things they said and did and probably some will do both.

And if the party tells you that two plus two is five you accept it. Like a good little warrior.

I would explain but you would probably threaten to ban me.

Again.

Or just delete my posts.

Because 'I'm a moderator and I can do what I like'.

And then threaten to ban me.

Or you can stop shitposting and actually try and contribute?

I did try, but you threatened to ban me. Again.

NB - thinking you are a bit useless is not trolling, it's a judgement thing. You could solve the problem by not being a bit useless and not using your 'position' to hector and bully anyone who doesn't toe your purity line.

If that was you trying, it was a piss poor effort. Also, saying that you'd get a formal warning if you kept posting off topic insults isn't "threatening to ban you", now is it? If you noticed, your on topic post didn't get deleted.

And it's on topic how exactly?

The posters decide what's on topic. Not a jumped up moderator.

And it's twice you've threatened to ban me. Without telling the other moderators...

No, that's literally the job of a moderator.

Again, a warning is not a ban, now is it?

If you want an example of just how petty Rowling is:


Not to mention that the feminist quoted by Rowling, Andrea Dworkin, was massively pro-trans rights.

I do love the way that any disagreement makes a person a phobe. It’s so puerile.

Sorry but I'm with Lord Kobel....

To see more than one Trans person kill themselves because of bullying she has a platform and she chose to abuse it. Maybe walking in there shoes might be an appropriate response.

So did Lloyd Russell dickchops but this isn't a question about the abuse of women vs the abuse of trans women. To go through transition so you can go and film some women in a toilet is a little baffling and I expected better from her, because frankly the accusation doesn't stand up, ancedote evidence is not evidence.

It also ignores Trans men.

Isnt the argument that, under self ID, you dont need to undergo transition. So there is no longer any barrier to men accessing previously women-only spaces?
