the Giggle controversy Anonymous 09/18/2020 (Fri) 15:54:40 No. 2052 [Reply] [Last]
for those who don't know giggle is a social media app developed by Sall Grover, It was a a platform meant for women only, the app was sorta revolutionary in that it would do a facial recognition scan to confirm the gender of those who wanted to join it, this angered TRAs and TIMs cause it "invalidated" them but Grover defended her stance and redfems and gender critical feminists rallied behind her but recently there has been some controversy,1) is that Sall Grover is not a radfem and doesn't want politics on her app, she wants it to be drama free, 2) issue is that giggle allows sex work as one of its networking options for women helping women, she seems to in the sex work is work camp and lastly she is kinda of a power tripping mod who bans women for even minor complaints against her
I am numb to the libfemmery of a lot of mainstream "women supporting women" initiatives, so I am not surprised that sex work would be one of the options. I am conflicted because this could be used as undercover/lowkey madame and pimp shit, however it could also be a way for sex workers to post about tips to stay safe and maybe out dangerous clients? I don't know. That would have to be an extremely moderated section for it to be beneficial. I don't support the libfem narrative of sex work, but I understand that right now it exists and will continue to exist so you might as well have methods for sex workers to keep themselves and each other safe. However, wanting to keep politics off of that app? As if the mere existence of this kind of app isn't political. Lmao, good luck.
>>2053 I mean I get it, She just wants a drama free woman only space where women talk shit and relax and be free, a space away from political bullshit
i thought trans women were still allowed on the app? maybe i'm misremembering her tweets.
>>2058 Troons do get on the app thanks to the shoddy Facial recognition, however she refuses to update it and thinks there's nothing wrong with it cause she can't admit she screwed up.......so yeah
>>2059 It's probably because it has to make certain exceptions for mutations or most people wouldn't be able to use it

>>2038 wow, i had no clue there were so many receipts of cardi b calling black women 'roaches', wtf. i thought she was funny and kind of likable in a dumb way and she was honest about the "robbing" potential punters in order to survive, which was cool imo. that's a little disappointing. it is so weird considering she seems to avoid admitting she isn't really black and seems to be profiting off of that assumption. a lot of people are wrongly referring to her as black in relation to this WAP fiasco, apparently.
>>2038 >race traitor Ugly and below the belt. >white man's whore This is entirely accurate. You don't have a shred of credibility when you've sold out to the male white right. It's the same with supposedly pro-Asian women criticizing Asian men while being married to white guys. We get it: y'all hate yourselves even more than the guys hate themselves (looking at you AsianMasc).
>>2045 the comment had less to do with her politics and more due to the fact that she was married to a white guy, like I disagree with her politics but her relationship seems genuine, cardi (who is reminder again not black) making comments on how owens she can't handle a black man or about her marriage life when the debate was about politics is disrespectful and uncalled for
>>2028 I wish it could just be treated like another stupid ass party song but everything that women do has to be politicized somehow. I guess that's what happens when mainstream feminism makes female liberation all about choice and sexual availability to men uwu.
>>2048 Also I just listened to the full thing (I've only heard snippets before) and the other anons are right, the song is pretty bad tbh. It isn't catchy or has a distinct melody, and has too many lyrics that reference BDSM. I need to cleanse myself by listening to Not Tonight by Lil Kim. That's a real feminist sex anthem.

Any Crystal.cafe/lolcow migrants here? I recently made the mistake of replying to a scrote on CC and got banned for it. Don't know for how long but regardless, it was only a motive for me to leave. They recently made any political or religious discourse against the rules. Really don't see any point to it besides venting on /feels/. The majority of the userbase consists of scrotes from /r9k/ to top it all off. I also recently heard lolcow is discouraging any gender critical discussion, but I'm not very informed on that. Anyway, just curious to know if there are any more of us here ~

I don't get CC. It's just 99% cutesy~ shit and troll shit-throwing. I feel like I'm on a r9k troll nursery or a tranny LARPing forum. I feel like even normie mommy discussion forums have better filters and content.
I think most anons here are from LC? I don't like CC, it has always had too many tradthots (if we're to consider the idea that they are actually women). I think it gaining even more of a semi shared userbase with LC within the past 1-2 yrs made it slightly more tolerable, but if they're cracking down on the only thing that would've attracted women who don't trawl the chans for crumbs, or just males, despite them having let LARPers from r9k/pol and tradthots shit up the site for years... they're beyond redemption. Last time I checked there were waaay too many literal '>tfw no bf' threads to not rouse suspicion or disgust.

Alright there stills some hope, please spread the word and contact reddit, maybe If some big name people contact reddit then GC might come back https://mobile.twitter.com/rGenderCritical/status/1277695017751060486[

>>1547 Let Reddit die, it's a cursed platform anyway. They'll find something new to ban and then as time slowly goes on the advertisers won't even bother with them.
>>1548 Honestly I would have less of a problem with the GC ban if they banned all the all political and porn subreddits from the platform, make it fully niche hobby/tv show fandom site
i made a discord for gc and pink pill discussion plus other nerd shit https://discord.gg/692CZ92

>>1976 Not to ruin your music too much, isn't Dalmatrix just 4lungs or some similar furry pedos alt account?
>>1977 ok i thought it was 4lung since its dalmatrix is his page, but it's some weirdo that's in his "collective" that he now has (you know this other dude has to be a pedo, is confirmed a furry) . no offense to anon but holy fuck that music is absolutely terrible

Actual female sexuality Anonymous 09/05/2020 (Sat) 14:18:58 No. 1964 [Reply] [Last]
I thought I was asexual until my 20s because main stream sexuality is so male gaze-y (woman must always be pretty and perfect, sex isn't about emotional connection but domination/consuming her, porn influenced sex). It seems even the stuff geared towards women isn't really authentic. Romance is boring and just feels like a script for the guy to follow, or borders on creepy stalky shit. I read some fanfiction but it's mostly written by people who haven't had sex or relationships yet kek. Where is real female sexuality represented?? Without any weird power dynamics that hets seem to demand on?? I'm sick of all this shit.
stop reposting threads from cc

i meant on not arguing with tras on twitter but holy shit they're so stupid and disingenuous i responded to one. i don't have debate points or skills lol why do i do this
There are so many upper middle class poc in America who straight up hate poor people because they believe they're all racist... and their justification is listing all the stereotypes associated with poor people and saying "this leads to them being racist". They can claim it's "only whites" all they want, the way they talk about this stuff reveals their bias. And you know, this makes me very insensitive to whatever they experience. If you're not for solidarity you can kiss my ass.
I follow some detrans men on my twitter and I'm so horny I keep wondering if they're cute or not. I see a lot of detrans people in STEM so we'll have that in common kek.
>>1924 you mean men with moobs or women?
>>1927 I mean "men with moobs", yes. I'm straight.

Any futurist radfems here? I'm interested in radical life extension and philosophizing about all that AI/transhumanism stuff but I find that a lot of the online discussion circles are mostly filled with misogynistic dudebros

>>1075 Even good people become flying monkeys for narcissists. She's being used and if you have to cut her off to avoid him, do so. Have you watched dr. ramani's youtube channel? Her videos on narcissists are great and she has a specific video on flying monkeys.
>>1075 Ugh, that's the worst. Honestly, I know you don't want to be rude, but sometimes it's not really avoidable unless you want to expend like, stupid amounts of energy tiptoeing around the feelings of people who would throw you under the bus for their malignant spouse, anyways. I can only say what I do, which is that I try to explain to these women that my relationship with my dad is complicated and honestly, it's between us -- not her, me, and him. Because truthfully, it's kind of rude to involve yourself in the intricacies of someone else's relationship with their child, unless you intend to better the life of the child or help the parent right wrongs. Her contacting you for HIS birthday, not even someone else's birthday that you both know, or your own birthday (literally wtf considering I assume she knows you're avoiding him?) doesn't give an indication that that seems to be the case, so eh. I'd feel really weird as a partner to insert myself in someone else's relationship with their child and ever insist their adult child, who has been avoiding them for 2 years, do something -for them-, especially considering this isn't a dire situation or something. Alternatively, I'd ignore her. I don't really see the point in keeping up communication with people do the bidding for manipulative narcissists. If it's a punishment gift, he will likely demonize you anyways and make you look bad to her (obviously leaving out the context of your relationship while weaving his narrative as to why you're a terrible daughter, to her), and if you send him something nice (even a card) he'll likely feel validated/use it as an excuse to believe you think highly of him, probably partially undoing the progress you've made over the past 2 years. Just my 2 cents on how it may go based on my experience.
>>1079 Not familiar, but I'll check her out. Thanks! >>1080 Thank you for perspective. I honestly never considered that I didn't have to explain myself to her lol. This is why it's good to hear from people who have been in similar situations.
There’s no winning with narcissists; they can only be avoided. https://n-continuum.blogspot.com/?m=1
Pathetic vent but there's a woman in my online college class that I'm pretty sure hates me. I really thought we'd be friends but she's the only person in the class group chat that doesn't seem to appreciate my contribution but would praise everyone else's. I'm upset and anxious about how she probably sees me as a competition when I actually just want her to appreciate or treat me equally like she does to everyone else. It's really intimidating, and my social anxiety doesn't help. In turn I'm pressured and stressed to do even better than her when I just really want to pass the class with a good GPA. Maybe its just that I never had this experience in high school? or that I'm really just looking for her approval? I don't even know anymore, I think I'm just pathetic. Either way, I wish more women enjoy the idea of teaming up with their fellow women and compete/challenge with men instead in academic settings. song related https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMVTOxELjfU

True Crime General Anonymous 06/19/2020 (Fri) 21:55:28 No. 1242 [Reply] [Last]
There's a lot to explore on this topic in general so I think a thread on true crime is kind of overdue. I just read about this case today, where a middle school employee (worked with 'troubled' children apparently, so the claim that he has seen too many abused/raped kids to ignore it seems legit), killed a sex offender and turned himself in. Also appears like the sex offender def had bait for kids with those playhouses and stuff on his property. What are your thoughts on this kind of vigilantism? On one hand, I can't say I really disagree with it in this case, but on the other hand, I feel like men are always itching to kill and search for any excuse to do it, so I'm skeptical of male vigilantism in general. https://www.omaha.com/news/crime/ex-wife-omaha-man-arrested-in-killing-of-registered-sex-offender-fearful-man-would-offend/article_ca281537-18e6-5e9f-8bd6-3cee4499b939.html

>>1582 that really is so sad. he seems to seriously only have murdered people that deserved it, after a life of nothing but suffering, and it seems like they genuinely were the real deal - truly shit people. he did nothing wrong.
>>1583 his victims >John Farrell, age 30, on 14 March 1974.(the one with child pornography) >David Francis, age 26, on 26 February 1977. Francis was a convicted child molester, . >Salney Darwood, age 46, on 29 July 1978. At the time of his death, Darwood was serving life for the manslaughter of his wife Blanche. >William Roberts, age 56, on 29 July 1978. At the time of his death, Roberts was serving 7 years for sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl. so he didn't randomly kill just anyone, the bastards he killed all deserved it but the media painted him as this deranged irrational psycho killer, its a fucking Joke
>>1586 I would bet money that pedophiles in power were scared of him and paid to influence the media. If these facts were widely known, most people would side with him.
>>1582 >In March 2000, Maudsley unsuccessfully pleaded for the terms of his solitary confinement be relaxed, or to be allowed to commit suicide via a cyanide capsule. >He also asked for a pet budgie, which was also denied. >In 2010, the Daily Mirror reported that Maudsley made a plea to be able to play board games with prison staff to relieve his boredom. They won't even let him have bare minimum entertainment, poor man, I don't think he should be let out but damn let him have his bird. Apparently his cell guards seem to like him and be friendly with him enough to even want to play games which is a bit uplifting, personally I would have no issue with playing some checkers with the guy that only kills wife beaters and kiddy diddlers.
>>1582 A hero
