Feminist subreddit made new default

According to the Reddit blog, they just changed the default subreddits, adding /r/TwoXChromosomes. Since it has barely any subscribers compared to popular subreddits (the old standard way of becoming a default was based on subscriber count), I can only assume it was handpicked by the admins to indoctrinate new Redditors with feminism and attract more women to the site.

Do you see trouble brewing? Is Reddit turning into Tumblr? And if so, should TRP have a lifeboat on another site that we can turn to when this sub is eventually taken down?

EDIT: Welcome, downvote brigade. Stay classy, Reddit.

You get it. It isn't about indoctrination or feministic favouritism. It's money. Ad revenue. Traffic fueling.

Props for taking the rational approach. Something that is mostly lacking in this thread.

Imaginary Gold revenue*

-11 upvotesibuprofiend [OP]5 years ago

It's obviously a marketing ploy to manipulate their demographics and bring in more ad revenue, anyone can see that. But that doesn't mean it's a neutral move.

I see this as a sort of faustian bargain with feminists: Visit our site, and we'll push your agenda. Now what if banning TRP would get them more ad-clicks? Think they'd do it, since apparently they put profit before principles?

Remember that Mozilla CEO who was recently fired for not supporting gay marriage? In tech companies especially, political beliefs and profits increasingly go hand in hand, and that's not a good thing.

Around how many bongs have you smoked today? Check their sub, that ain't radical feminism or even feminism. They use it to complain to each other about inane shit. It's like a mothers meeting for excessively emotional women. Relax dude.

What an intelligent comment. You're new here, aren't you?

3 upvoteslikechoklit4choklit5 years ago

Differingd opinions =/= beta. I see this shaming attack used all the fucking time on trp, and most of the time it seems like an unnecessary power play. Many times targetting men who equate the ability to consider real world nuance. Is there any place that you would be cool with where woman can communicate about their shared experience? Be realistic: humans crave community.

Losing ones shit over whatever the fuck women and gender warriors are doing is participating in a "boys club good, girls club icky" mentality.

You're gonna write this off as whiteknighting instead of a gentle check of your rationality and critical consumption, one man to another. I'm already cool with that.

0 upvotesnrokchi5 years ago

Alright, you're clearly skipping steps in rational thought. Have some scotch, get some sleep, and take another crack at it tomorrow.

Incongruous events cannot be compared on equal merits. Branding is everything, just look at the Clippers. Reddit knows its brand. Expanding its user base is knowing its brand. Shutting down jailbait was a move to keep people clicking. Shutting down TRP will do what? That is the critique of your logical process, leaving out the extraordinary jump from allowing twoX to shutting down TRP that you are insinuating.

-3 upvotesibuprofiend [OP]5 years ago

Bro, I'm not saying "TwoX is a default, therefore TRP will be deleted." We're having an open-ended discussion about the implications of Reddit trying to change its image in this way. This isn't a deductive logic proof. You're really oversimplifying things and generally looking like a jackass.

0 upvotesnrokchi5 years ago

Dropping words like "indoctrinate", making sweeping statements akin to "reddit becoming tumblr" and implying that a highly specific--and wholly underrepresented form of feminism within the twoX sub--is the way Reddit as a whole wants to move is both reactionary and overly simplified. The fervency of your reaction to this grossly overstated and misguided. Thanks for the original post to bring some of us up to speed on the topic (funny, my wife told me about it after I read it in TRP), but that's about as useful as your contributions have been.

My wife made a similar point. She's a TwoX subscriber and enjoys the community for it being an open forum for women to talk about their experiences. Touchy/feely, sure, but it is there just as TRP is there for men to do whatever it is we really do. TRP will be TRP and will be judged just the same, regardless of how popular TwoX gets. After all, women get just as sick of beating a dead horse as men do (e.g., "TRP = misogyny filth den").

-3 upvotesGhadis5 years ago

I think you're wrong about that, except insofar as reddit is indeed a marketing company. They have also always been far left activists since the very beginning. Socialist indoctrination is a daily thing here.

12 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

the Twox mods actually aren't ban-happy at all as long as you don't insult people or use inappropriate language. i've been poking fun at radfems in that sub for a long time and i still haven't been banned because i follow the sub's rules. i think their mods are quite fair and seem to take a hands-off approach.

i think it was idiotic to make twox a default sub, though. it's probably getting a huge influx of trolls, and i kinda feel bad for all the regular girls there who just want to discuss periods, pregnancy scares, and boyfriends with other girls. now they've gotta deal with all the bastards.

-7 upvotesDelixcroix5 years ago

You have to look at it this way. A Default should be a universally beloved sub. This is why Humor and things that are fact are default subs. Gender issues are not universally loved by anyone and forcing 150,000 men to subscribe to a womans issue sub for 50,000 women who never really had issues and were not actively seeking that sub ... You can see why it will get shut down pretty quickly as a horrible idea.

Much like when TRP Became Mainstream and became a hate magnet for every SRD, SRS, and whatever other Feminist Friendly subreddits we were targeted by every hate brigade towards men on the planet.

Much like how RedPillWomen is Anti Feminism for Females who hate the idea of breaking down gender roles (Because why would you they worked for thousands of years. Your not smarter then thousands of years of men and women random liberal college grads) Gender roles work. They protect women and inspire men and create prosperity.

But if RedpillWomen or Men became a default (TRPm Practically is Default because of how much hatemail we get from the rest of Reddit and all the shit posters we attract) We would see a decline in our communities. TwoX doesn't want this and they shouldn't be forced to deal with the admins "WE LOVE FEMINISM" Circlejerk.

17 upvotesduckducklandwhale5 years ago

Men will ignore it or get banned from the community pretty quick

This is actually great and a good point. Especially for normal guys out there who dont fall too deeply into the "tow the feminism line". You know what I mean, they guys that only learned a scant bit about Susan B Anthony and woman suffrage so therefore think of feminism still as great, beneficial, and about equality. As soon as a guy says something the strays/challenges their convicted notion of womanhood's infallibility or something that would be an innocuous comment in the real world like "as I guy I like women who dont wear makeup/wear skirts/with long hair" they will hate and chide. I can see an instaban, growing resentment, and the looking of other movements. That's pretty much how I ended up being less favorable toward these so-called "safe spaces/echo chambers" on this website.

-2 upvotesPlanB_pedofile5 years ago

If they wanted to do society a favor they should have made r/makeupaddiction and r/loseit default subs.

Great point. If admins wanted to attract and retain more "quality" women though, they should have picked another sub. Women that contribute to that sub are not likely to contribute great content to the more widely known subs, IMO.

Is this a joke? I'm lost for words as to why this is a default sub?

I've just been on their front page, and a poll asking "should TwoX be a default subreddit" is up.

8% have said yes 67% have said no.

I can only assume it was handpicked by the admins to indoctrinate new Redditors with feminism and attract more women to the site.

I think you're correct, and it's an admin's agenda putting this as a default, however, it will make no difference to TRP. Even if it did somehow take the sub down, there are plenty of other websites which can be used as TRP's replacement home. We'll be fine.

20 upvotesibuprofiend [OP]5 years ago

No joke unfortunately. I don't think it will harm us immediately, but it shows everyone just how biased the admins are. There have always been rumors of admins helping SRS, but they tended to operate in the shadows... Now they're directly trying to enforce their twisted version of "equality."

Subreddits die when they become default.

-2 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

It's funny how admins are doing it even though the TwoX community doesn't want it. Skimming through it, half of the posts seem to be made by teenagers about feminine topics such as "Having my first period, is this normal?" or "What products do you use to remove pubic hair?". Those topics belong in a woman's only forum, and teenage girls probably feel more comfortable talking about it in a majority female forum. Their community will probably get nuked by bad memes and gifs of cats, like most other default subreddits, just because some admin decided that the default subreddits needed more "female" representation. It makes no sense when the demographic of Reddit is mostly male.

-3 upvotesnrokchi5 years ago

I would caution the statement of it being a decision with broad based support. I think it is more likely the consented actions of a few.

Goes to show that the admins do whatever they want regardless of public opinion. They're an authority unto themselves.

This seems like a rather large stepping stone on the road to banning TRP on reddit.

Admins are happy to spotlight whichever subs they personally like. Seems reasonable that they'd be just as happy to ban the ones they don't like.

11 upvotesGuildedCasket5 years ago

It's a place for women to talk about women stuff that they may feel uncomfortable talking about anywhere else. It's a bit weird they got defaulted, as the people there definitely didn't want that as it increases the influx of detractors, but it's not like the subreddit is unworthy or trashy or any number of things people have said: it just caters to women's issues, like TRP caters to a certain kind of men's issues, except much less controversially and more universally (discussing medical problems specific to women as well as things related to sex). What is the harm if one female focused subreddit is defaulted, really? Why do you care at all? It's not like they defaulted SRS.

Besides, if you look at lots of the posts it's not even radically feminist: a recent post about a rape case that was posted was shot down because the case clearly wasn't rape, there was a woman asking how to make her wedding as cheap as possible, and there was someone ranting about how one night stands do not equal rape. This is nowhere near the "end" of RP or reddit.

From a post titled "Hey hormones. Chill the eff out" regarding wanting babies after period (ovulation), despite otherwise regularly not wanting children

This frenzy only lasts about four days, and then after that I am insanely grateful that I have the IUD because I do not know what I would do if I did not have that level of contraceptive protection. Poking holes in condoms, "forgetting" to take a pill. My body even goes so far as to think "Hey you, random good looking man who is not my husband! You are a great candidate to imagine you impregnating me!" I would never cheat on my husband, but this brain is being held captive by my uterus and it's only demand is to be filled with BABY.

This is as much of a statement as having Atheism as a proclaimed main subreddit. It shows what kind of userbase they want (even if it was "chosen" for it's subscriber count), and they are going to get a ton of new readers for it.

People don't close reddit accounts, because you can just unsubscribe from whatever bothers you. But it will show the world "hey look, we're a feminist blogging site" and lead to a stream of angsty teens and middle age women coming to ruin whatever "quality" that subreddit could have proclaimed to have. This will ruin general reddit quality, but I imagine it is already shit. I don't have any much interaction with main subs, but when I have, I see the kind of shit that goes on there.

For well, well over a year. Most long-timers will agree it went to shit about 4 years ago when the Digg site redesign caused an exodus of users. We've been on a downhill run since then. Before that reddit was a fraction of the size of digg, let alone what it's now become, and was mostly populated by intellectual sorts.

But like rats from a sinking ship all of the riff-raff from Digg found their way over here. Within a month all the default subs were trashed and they started spreading elsewhere. After the huge spike in traffic caused by the Digg exodus, Reddit started grabbing more and more mainstream media headlines, which in turn further opened the floodgates and further impacted the quality of the community. At the same time, as reddit became pretty mainstream on college campuses it began to trickle down to younger siblings... so now not only is the site full of a rainbow of people who cannot think for themselves, it's also populated with children.

It'll be very interesting if the dem election machine fires up behind her. Personally, I don't think she'll get the nomination because she's not a viable candidate and will be defeated in he primaries. Iowans don't like her, for starters.

Why is the male viewpoint bad? Female dominated websites exist(and that's fine, all the power to them), but you don't see them making moves to push males to join. Usually quite the opposite "loud and proud" mentality.

The harder you try to push your agenda, without any subtlety (and third wave feminist shit all over subtlety) and only with brute force while being openly hypocritical (saying that you're oppressed when in fact you're the oppressor), the harder the reaction will be to it.

It happened in Turkey when they tried to force Islam - an atheist, secular reaction.

I found the sub from people bitching about all the "womyn-hating" in other subs. Came here, pretty much confirmed everything I already knew about women. Score within your level of game, maintain a strong mind and body, plenty of fish in the sea etc.

The outside hate comes from people who can't face frank discussion about the reality of man-woman relationships. Every subreddit that challenges the consensus receives similar hate. That's why TRP, atheism, childfree all get brought up as toxic subreddits. They are just places that happy people chat about how free they are from the expected norms of being a beta male that lets women take all his money, being an indoctrinated member of the flock, or realizing that popping out kids in your peak years just wears you and your wallet out.

it wasn't always like that. About 6-7 years ago, it was the place that helped me realize how not christian I was.

I will admit that in it's present state, it's pretty bad, but it will always hold a special place in my heart, it's why I created my first reddit account (now long since deleted, unfortunately.)

2 upvotesmasterspeeks5 years ago

That's probably because you put faith and religion on a pedestal. People who think differently than you = toxic.

It's the same circlejerk all over reddit. As someone who objectively reads posts in different subs, there isn't much variation in tone or quality of the people. Just different groups of puerile thinkers saying their shit don't stink.

For example, the enmity between this sub and SRS is pointless. If you truly think someone is toxic just ignore it and move on. Talking about them feeds their ego and creates this lame "they're our rivals!" vibe.

1 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

Not sure what you're talking about when it comes to atheism, since most critics of the sub from what I've seen over the past two years have been atheists themselves. Their problem isn't disagreeing with the message of the sub, it's disagreeing with the immature content of it. See /u/Aalewis and the may-may scandal for reference.

Reddit dropped its frame and failed the shit test.

10 upvotesnrokchi5 years ago

In the event it was handpicked, I believe a more reasonable explanation would be that it was chosen by an individual or two, not a decision of an overwhelming number of moderators or administrators. Someone made a case for it, was convincing, and so it was done.

People will read it, form the own opinion, and move on. That sub is not a gold mine of anti-men or neo-feminist propaganda. For example, a quick look over there during the writing of the comment has posts such as: "Bought pregnancy tests at the dollar store... cashier was rude!", "How can we get this wonderful community taken off default?", "Hey hormones. Chill the eff out.", and "Rape =/= One Night Stand. A short rant.".

So, before you lose your shit over some anti-feminism hysteria, take a second to remember some of the core tenants of TRP: be cool, be rational, and be just.

Well, it's a rare event, so it shouldn't happen for another month or so. I assume some people are getting shadow-banned for it, so there's that. TBP has implemented measures to get their users to stop brigading our shit because of shadow-banning.

Otherwise, nothing we can do. Just a bunch of fucking faggots, jumping on the bandwagon and downvoting. Didn't you know? Hating on TRP is the newest trend on reddit! This is because they fear the information that's being spread. If you were a slave owner 200 years ago, wouldn't you hate it if your little slaves began congregating and sharing ideas of freedom?

There's no need to look into these things and speculate, we can all manipulate a point to make something look like something as I have just done, most likely they want to retain a female demographic to exploit for ad revenue.

And if so, should TRP have a lifeboat on another site that we can turn to when this sub is eventually taken down?

This new flow of people to their sub might actually be a very bad thing for them. I mean, there isn't much to dilute since everything there is based on feelings but it will hold them back while they try to "update" the new-comers. I think most will just give up.

A "lifeboat" is never a bad thing(specially in the internet), no matter how sure you are of something you must always have a plan B. What this place allows us to do is to share, develop new and update old ideas with like minded people. If we are separated then our ideas with be replaced or even discredited by the new-comers because of their failures, making TRP look like a farce. It might be a "World Thing" but do you see the world accepting it? some might not be able to avoid it, but most will just cover their ears. what i am trying to say is that at the moment we don't really need a "lifeboat"( we already have a bunch, just look at the sidebar), but is it a bad idea? never.

Well duh. Can you not spot the feminism friendly admins? (Just informed they actually removed MensRight as default back in the day because feminists complained loud/persistent enough). It's quite obvious especially when you consider something like SRS is still around despite breaking rules via blatant doxxing and general site disruption similar to /r/GameOfTrolls. The rest of the site is headed towards feminization and promoting beta traits. All we need to do is make sure masculinity and personal commitment to it stays strong and we'll ride it out. Though, to be honest I used to be especially progressive and pro-feminism but their insanity, childishness to opposing viewpoints, and chide police nature have actually made me fairly against it.

However they did pick some stupid ass subs to be default though other than that one.

As a man, I see it doing a lot of harm in the world and providing me no benefit.

Cons for feminism: Feminism strives to eliminate personal responsibility and blame everything on "society".... since I'm a straight, white male, I apparently control "society" and am to blame for anything that ever goes wrong. Feminism has generally fucked up the economy by doubling the workforce and makes it harder for me to get into law school and get a good job. Feminism has made it nigh impossible to find a girl worthy of a LTR. Feminism has guys thrown out of school or imprisoned if a girl falsely cries "rape!" Feminism has infected academia and made many of my classes unbearable. Feminism encourages mindless groupthink. Feminism supports other leftist political movements I hate.

Pros for feminism: Fucking nothing.

A better question would be, Why should a guy support feminism when feminism is completely against men's interests?

0 upvotes • [deleted] • 5 years ago

Isn't the idea of feminism to be for equality, though? In addition, if it puts women into the workforce, doesn't that mean that now we'll have a more effective workforce, as now business owners have double the applicants?

In addition, I'm sure that you have women in your life who you care about and would benefit from feminism. What about them?

2 upvotesTheGreenPill5 years ago

Feminism was about equal opportunity, then it was hijacked into equal outcome; meaning regardless of input effort womyn expect the same results as men and cry when it isn't delivered.

Modern feminism is a culture of shaming females who don't fit a particular archetype and a near blind hatred of all things masculine. I bet you felt uncomfortable just reading the word masculine.

If a human is serious about equal opportunity (not equal outcome) then they would be a humanist (I label my self that).
Feminism is explicitly a form of discrimination as it's only focus is the feminine. If it were truly about bettering all people, by enabling females to have the same opportunity, it would be humanist.

I believe women should be given the same opportunity to live the fulfilling live they choose to.
But I think giving preferential treatment to one gender over another is harmful through the implication that one gender is weaker.
Feminism also denies choice to women who want to be traditionally feminine, feminists actively remove choice from other women by hyper shaming any that don't fit into the narrow ideal.

Women are different to men, and I don't have a problem with that.
But according to modern feminism I'm a monster because I think masculine pursuits are worthy goal for men.

This sub is interned to be a place of thoughtful discussion without the screeching that often happens when a womyn feels oppressed by two men talking to each other.

The overall discussion about twox becoming a default sub should have no impact here, but unfortunately there are still recent 'converts' that are so afraid of female ridicule they mistakenly attempt to remove any female discussion from their lives; hence the (pretty weak) discussion here.

I actually consider twox to be a reasonable sub, but I fear it will be overrun by white knights and screeching harpies that can't stand women not being womyn.

2 upvotesCyralea5 years ago

Isn't the idea of feminism to be for equality, though?

Feminism isn't about equality, despite that being the slogan. When was the last time a large feminist organization did something to balance the scales where men were severely disadvantaged? Divorce courts, suicide rates, homelessness, etc. The answer is never. They are a pro-woman's advocacy group.

In addition, if it puts women into the workforce, doesn't that mean that now we'll have a more effective workforce, as now business owners have double the applicants?

Consider the ramifications of this. Double the workforce means competition has doubled. The price of labour is way down because of this. You know how back in the 50's a man could support a family easily with a single income? That's flat-out impossible unless you're in the top percentage of earners now. Both parties have to work now. Is that truly better?

Further, women who want to be stay-at-home moms are shamed now. Apparently it's degrading and sets women back somehow. This is an instinctual desire in most women, yet feminism teaches them that the happiness means earning a high income at least comparable to men. This is causing a lot of unhappy women.

Further, feminism teaches women completely false ideas about sexual dynamics. Men are attracted to youth, beauty and chastity. There are other things, of course, but these are the biggest ones. There was a study this week that came out showing as much. Feminism teaches women to ignore these realities and sleep around, abandon their femininity and demand men be attracted to them for the same things women find attractive in men. It's an effort in futility, and worse, it's causing a lot of women to grow up to be single and unhappy.

There's more, but that's a good start.

If it was truly about making sure everyone had the same chance to succeed regardless of gender, then I would probably accept it. Notice that I would not say that if I thought I was truly privileged by this vast conspiracy they call the patriarchy... I think we men are being discriminated against more and more and I doubt we'll ever gain control, so I'd accept equality as a compromise.

Same deal with affirmative action. Take a law like "race will play no role in college admissions." A hundred years ago black people would have loved that, but nowadays they're benefiting from institutional discrimination, so they oppose it and white people support it.

If it's the feminism that advocates for issues that are actually important like equal pay (and not "equal pay" as in "I can't do this job as good as you but I should still make as much as you"), then while I don't condone it I also don't think that it's as bad as you're making it out to be. But if it's basically a safe haven for special snowflake tumblrinas that intend to "fight the patriarchy" and wholeheartedly believe that they ( most likely upper middle class white chicks) are a victims of "rape culture then" the admins can just fuck right off.

1 upvotesibuprofiend [OP]5 years ago

It actually looks more like a place for chicks to ask questions about birth control and seek validation when a store clerk is "rude" to them or someone trolls their half nude Instagram pics.

I'm more concerned with the message it sends. By defaulting a gendered subreddit for women but not men, the admins are coming out and officially endorsing enforced inequality.

2 upvotesOnly_A_Username5 years ago

I definitely see your point, but because I'm just "that guy" I'm going to play devil's advocate. With a few choice examples like inequality in divorce, custody battles, and being drafted for the military, men typically do have it better/easier than women in areas where it actually matters like career advancement. (Sorry guys, but girls getting drunk for free at clubs isn't inequality) It's important to highlight those types of inequalities so that something can be done about them. So while I definitely don't condone making it a default sub, I can definitely see the reasoning behind it.

Think about it this way, you can't take a dog that's been caged its whole life, put it on a racetrack with other dogs, and just expect it to perform as well as the others. You can't say "see, it had just as much of an opportunity to win the race as those other dogs," because that's just not right. You have to train it and nourish it so that it will eventually be able to compete.

I know that I definitely don't sound like a Red Pill-er, and I guess in a way I'm not. I attempt to incorporate aspects of RP philosophy into my life, but also believe that one should still treat ALL people with respect and not equate it to "let them walk all over you." A man can be dominant, assertive, and in charge of his relationship while also seeing his woman as his equal. This of course assumes that you believe in the "inherent worth" within people, which is a philosophical concept that not all people subscribe to.

0 upvotesibuprofiend [OP]5 years ago

Let me explain what's happening.

Women constantly complain that reddit is "hostile" to them and they need a "safe space" where they can not be bombarded with rape threats and stuff. Ok, understandable. The only problem is that "women's spaces" quickly take on an extreme feminist, left-wing character and become "hostile" to men's issues or any idea or perspective that doesn't always take the woman's side.

Furthermore, there are no feminist subreddits worth a shit. Because much of feminist theory is bullshit, and most feminists emotionally immature psychopaths, they can't defend their ideas in reasoned debate. Add to that the fact that extreme feminists spout crazy nonsense that offends even regular feminists, subs like r/feminism fail because the moderator has to ban everybody unless they match his (yeah, the main mod of r/feminism is a guy, weird, right?) particular brand of feminism.

So, twoxchromosomes is left. Problem is, the women in that sub don't want to be defaulted. They know that they are hysterical and irrational, and they don't want "reasoned debate" or "educated opinions" or even male perspectives. seriously, read the thread on there right now with the community whining about defaulting. They just want to whine and be patted on the back and consoled. In trying to be a "safe space" for women, TwoX has become extremely sexist.

But of course, the only reason a person would spend all day moderating a subreddit for no pay is to feel powerful, so naturally they will welcome being made one of the "defaults."

I don't see why you people are butthurt at this. Making 2xc a default sub will increase exposure to more non-feminists and encourage discussion. If anything this will make the subreddit less circlejerky and make opinions more diverse.

Not everything is "muh misandry" you know.

And here we go.

Who the fuck cares? Let's entertain the idea that Reddit is staunchy misandrist. The Red Pill isn't a social movement in the vein of Men's Rights. We're just here to spread knowledge and truth. Men's Rights, The Manosphere, and The Red Pill is bigger than Reddit.

Let's look at the more realistic scenario: Reddit is heavily male dominated. What's an untapped demographic? Women. How might you attract women? Make a woman's sub a default. Hell, that sub isn't even RadFem.

Sure, it might actually bring in more trolls and such for us. But there are plenty of other places: Roosh V forums, The Rational Male, and even less known Red Pill subs.

Get your panties out of a knot, and put on some boxers and go about your day. The best thing we can do to spread The Red Pill is to live it and bring men into our fold through example.

What's this change? Society panders to feminism, we continue doing what we do. Nothing changes, if you were wondering.

Women happen to be half the world, and reddit is oriented for everyone.

thus they need a place to bitch about and talk about their adventures.

admins being incredibly biased towards feminism is a common occurrence on many many places like this online. luckily TRP is alive and well, MRA is alive and well. SRS is deep in the mud, our lives get better, their bullshit will be written in the history books after 2020 and new problems will arise.

seems they aren't too thrilled about it themselves.

Usually when people have sound ideas and good concepts they welcome the chance at reaching a wider audience. They need a "safe space" from being called out on their bullshit.

Old news. Learn to use search function.

They made the change earlier today bro, and I don't see any other posts on TRP about it. If something the admins did a couple hours ago is "old news" to you, you might spend too much time on Reddit.

Edit: Sorry, you're right, but the old posts were downvote brigaded and are now hidden from view.

Shadowbananas was a dick about it but there have been two other threads on it today.

Where? I used the search function and scanned the first 2 pages of TRP

-1 upvoteswttr5 years ago

I just looked as well and couldn't find them. They might have been removed due to lack of effort on the OPs part.

Actually I figured it out. There are people in the thread on the front page linking to TRP posts and they're getting vote brigaded. The old posts are still up, but they have a ton of negative karma so they're hidden.

Good old liberal tolerance.

I hate women, don't you? It's not like they have every right to the things we have. Fuck people who have the power to create another human. Am I cool yet?
