I’ve been thinking about making this thread for a while, because I’ve been following the massive thread on Kavanaugh, and holy fucking shit is it rapey in there! Not sure how to best put my thoughts on it, but it’s a good thing I don’t have to, because nelliebly said what I wanted to say but better:
I mean… are the mods keeping track of that thread? I know Bone stepped in to point out one particularly fucking disgusting statement (although that was just his personal distaste, rather than any actual moderator instruction to be less of a misogynist). I mostly just hang out there to see how fucking low we’re setting the bar, and at this point all we’re missing is a “she had it coming” before we’re officially at the level of “Fox News Comments Section”.
I don’t have a good solution for this problem, but I do think it’s important to call attention to the fact that we do, in fact, have this problem, and that women on the board have been speaking up about it quite extensively. There are something like 7 pit threads on the topic; maybe it’s time we had one in ATMB.
