    Yeah, the people who think that, "History" had anything to do with a male pronoun are pretty funny, too.

    Really, look up the root. :P

    Isn't that what most threads are? Or are you saying that because this thread if mocking feminists it deserves to be closed more than other threads, Misandrist threads for example.

They're not representative of feminism as a whole - it's just that they shout the loudest (and therefore make the best news).
    If only the the sane majority actually had the spotlight. Maybe things might get done then.

    It's usually when people pretend that they get Post traumatic stress like the same thing that soldiers get after the come back home, except they are getting it from simply reading a single word in some cases. I have no doubt that some people do have terrible things happen to them to the degree that reading somethin can trigger this panic, but it's not possible that it's the massive epidemic that trumblr would have you believe

    Reading the word trigger is becoming a trigger for me.

    Then add something to the discussion. There has been a fair amount of disagreement in the thread already - it's just not surprising that most people seem to agree that the use of terms like "womyn" and "xe" are simply ridiculous.

    Just a few minutes ago there was a thread where someone asked what a furry was and it was closed in 5 minutes because the mods feared there would be furry mocking.
    I find it weird how mocking certain subjects is acceptable but others can get you infracted.

    Someone who does what they want in their own home isn't bad though. We're talking about people who infridge on others by insisting you act or talk a certain way.

    Nobody's mocking feminism, if we had to define it, we're mocking insane radicals who make normal feminists look bad.

    Mocking idiots is acceptable because there being idiots. Furries are generally associated with sex (for good reason) and those types of threads are closed pretty sharpish, they also tend to devolve into just insulting other posters. I don't think anyone here has insulted another poster, beyond calling out the stupidity of most extreme feminism is.

    Threads about certain subjects, e.g. sex, religion, are banned.

    Threads about a pointless change in the English language that serves no purpose other than to invite scorn, generally aren't.

    Yep. Feminism is apparently now reducible to the spelling of the word "woman."

    There's nothing inconsistent about it.

    I guess maybe, even though it is bizarre, a subculture of people who like humanized animals are a more legitimate collective than bumbling idiots trying to change the dictionary?
