To no one's surprise, given what happens at Twitter, the other wokey-woke tech-bros at places like Reddit have caved in to the trans ideology & do their best to shut up, censor, and expel gender-critical women who want to have women-only safe-spaces for their own discussions. Trans identifying biological males are basically running all the female-only content on the site:

While Reddit communities intended to provide exclusive spaces for lesbians are routinely banned or censored under the pretense of “transphobia,” subreddits dedicated to the pornographic abuse of women are allowed to proudly declare “cis women only.”

Reddit has been notorious for deplatforming woman-centered and feminist communities. In 2019, r/GenderCritical was permanently banned from the site after Reddit overhauled its ‘hate speech’ terms of service. Subreddits such as r/BanFemaleHateSubs, a board dedicated to fighting misogyny on the platform were initially picked up in the sweep, as well as r/JoanneRowling, a J.K Rowling fan subreddit.

Other boards saw themselves either forced to undergo an overhaul or flat-out censored by the site. r/Detransition, a subreddit for individuals who have ended their gender transition to discuss their experiences, endured what some of the users described as a ‘coup,‘ with transgender Reddit top moderators taking over the subreddit and beginning to heavily suppress content.


But the double-standards amongst lesbian communities on Reddit is perhaps the most stark.

r/ActualLesbians is a subreddit intended to be for lesbian support and discussion that has taken a hard stance on “militant and exclusive” sexuality. The community’s description reads it is a “place for discussions for and by cis and trans lesbians, bisexual girls, chicks who like chicks, bi-curious folks, dykes, butches, femmes, girls who kiss girls, birls, bois, aces, LGBT allies, and anyone else interested!”

For years, female users have reported being banned from r/ActualLesbians for stating they were exclusively same-sex attracted, with others finding posts removed that make reference to lesbians not being attracted to males.

Some posts even veer into disturbing territory, with lesbians being encouraged to perform oral sex on male genitalia, or even have sexual intercourse with men.

In one post which went viral in December across social media, an r/ActualLesbians users expressed “feeling like a failure” after not being able to have penetrative sex with a male “transbian” partner. The subreddit’s moderators quickly deleted comments telling the user that she should not have been subjected to the experience, and that her partner should not have continued to try to penetrate her when she expressed physical discomfort.

Amongst the subreddit’s moderators, the majority participate heavily in pro-trans subreddits targeting “TERFs” or “exclusionary” lesbians, or are transgender themselves.

According to SubredditStats, r/ActualLesbian users most frequently overlap with those who also engage in r/MtF, a male-to-female community subreddit, r/AskTransgender, and several other transgender communities.

In stark contrast to r/ActualLesbians, which is firmly against “exclusionary” lesbian sexuality, r/Lesbians and r/DegradingHoles, pornographic subreddits primarily utilized by males, are explicitly exclusive and firmly state they only accepts posts with pornography featuring “cis women.”

The impact of this lack of exclusive spaces for female homosexuals on Reddit is obvious.

A quick scroll of r/ActualLesbians finds a recent post made by a woman who has become uncomfortable with the term lesbian because of its association with pornography. Instead of reassuring the user that there is nothing wrong with being a lesbian, users instead reply and recommend that she call herself “sapphic” or “queer,” and abandon the word “lesbian” altogether. One contributor jokingly suggests “vagitarian,” but is quickly policed and told that the term is exclusionary of lesbians that have penises.

The issue with a lack of female-exclusive spaces isn’t just indicated in the shaming and fetishization of female homosexuality, but clear safeguarding concerns have emerged — especially for young lesbians.

r/LesbianTeens is the youth equivalent of r/ActualLesbians, and advertises itself as an inclusive lesbian community. Its description declares it is a “safe space for LGBTQIA+ teens, focused mainly towards lesbians, but welcoming of all different sexualities and genders.” Like r/ActualLesbians, there is a massive overlap between the users of that community and those within transgender subreddits.

Scrolling the subreddit quickly reveals a significant number of the posts are directed towards breaking down lesbian sexual boundaries, and ‘educating’ young lesbians about making their sexuality inclusive of males.

The subreddit features a number of posts praising “trans lesbians” as the “coolest people ever,” and decrying the “transphobia” of “cis lesbians.” One post by a trans-identified male solicits reassurance about “feeling like a creep” in lesbians spaces, to which young users flock to sympathize.

The subreddit also trans identified males celebrating feminizing medical interventions such as exogenous oestrogen. A disturbing post goes is a male graphically celebrating that after his “bottom surgery” he no longer has genitals.

One post on r/LesbianTeens was supposedly written by a 14-year-old “MtF” looking for an online relationship. The user calls themselves a “lil’ trans girl” and appears to solicit advice from the teen lesbians on how to talk to a “fem presenting partner” through the internet. A quick glance at the user’s profile finds they are an “age regression” fetishist who role-plays as a minor in the context of a kink.

The erasure of lesbian and female-exclusive spaces on Reddit is hardly a one-off. It is, in fact, an example of what has been happening both online and offline since the widespread emergence of gender ideology, queer theory, and the inescapable omnipresence of increasingly abusive pornography.

In fact, it increasingly seems as though pornography is the only medium in which women and lesbians are allowed to be accurately defined — as perfectly demonstrated by the fact exclusivity is permitted only on those subreddits which seek to dehumanize, degrade, and sexualize them. In pornography, there is no wishy-washy abstract debate about what a woman is. The men jacking-off behind their computer screens know full well.

It goes without saying that this, in turn, has had an impact on women’s self-perception across the board. Where women exist only as products in male fantasy, the desire to escape such a burden becomes overwhelming. Like the female user who expressed discomfort with the term ‘lesbian’ because of its association with pornography, many women are being corralled into adopting abstract identities or abandoning association with their sex or sexuality altogether in search of relief.

For many women, but especially those young girls first coming into understanding themselves, it might seem easier to be a they/them than a she/her. Similarly, it may be more appealing to be an asexual demiromantic birl than a lesbian — especially when you wouldn’t be allowed to set your own sexual boundaries outside of pornography otherwise.

Reddit stands to be viewed as a microcosm of what is happening everywhere, but most importantly, it provides a stark lesson in why women must concede no ground in the fight for single-sex spaces.


Odd how those who started all this with going into women's washrooms because "I only wanted to pee" are also the same ones doing a massive media blitzkrieg on an entire society to wipe out the term & and meaning of "female" & "woman" altogether.

Has anyone made up a proper description or acronym yet for this sort of porn? :roll:

"Fake"?

"Fake news!" when clear evidence of what's going on in our society is presented is a tactic only a Trump-style ideologue would use. Turns out that the left just isn't as good as the alt-right at denying objective reality when they see it, they're also just as good at attacking the messenger showing it to them as well.

Fake posts are actually pretty easy to, you know, fake. Unless YOU saw it on some lesbian dating site, I'll go with what I know. And I know that any person calling themselves 'trans' would not accept that amount of body hair.

Sounds more horrific what they're doing with these experiments on kids than what Doctor Frankenstein was doing with all those body part he & Igor kept stealing from graveyards. :|

For the past decade, problems have been mounting at the NHS’s Gender Identity Development Services (GIDS), the UK’s specialist provider of care for children with gender-identity issues. There have been whistleblowers, court cases and heart-rending testimony from former patients who say they have been forever scarred by their time at the clinic. Nevertheless, few politicians, let alone ministers, have been willing to speak out. No doubt many fear being smeared as a transphobe – a stain no ambitious politician wants.

Finally, the tide seems to be turning. Health secretary Sajid Javid is preparing to launch an urgent review into GIDS. Last week, The Times reported Javid’s concern that GIDS is ‘failing children’. Allies say he is worried that transgender ideology, pushed vociferously by certain lobby groups, has taken precedence over the interests of children.

Javid’s intervention was prompted by the recent publication of an interim report into GIDS by Dr Hilary Cass. Cass, a former president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, revealed a culture at GIDS in which staff felt ‘pressure to take a purely affirmative approach’ to gender transitioning. Under this approach, a child’s chosen gender identity is affirmed by clinicians rather than questioned, and children are then given medical treatment to help them change gender. Inevitably, this means that any underlying issues that could be driving gender dysphoria – such as autism, homophobic bullying, sexual abuse or other traumas – are overlooked.

This is an urgent problem. Referrals to GIDS have soared from just 135 children in 2010-11 to 2,565 in 2019-20, with around 5,500 children now on its waiting list. Of those referred it’s estimated a third are autistic, though a court case revealed patient records are incomplete.

GIDS began prescribing off-label puberty-blocking medication in 2011 as part of a trial. Lupron, the drug most commonly used, is licenced to treat end-stage prostate cancer. It is also prescribed to chemically castrate sex offenders in Broadmoor. As GIDS director Dr Polly Carmichael told Vice magazine in 2016: ‘There was a lot of pressure coming from certain groups to introduce [puberty-blocking treatment] – families were travelling abroad because they knew it was available in Holland and America.’

One group that has lobbied heavily for an affirmation approach to gender identity is ‘trans youth’ charity Mermaids. Mermaids has long enjoyed a cosy relationship with GIDS. Mermaids CEO Susie Green is a passionate advocate of early medical invention for children with gender dysphoria.

The administration of puberty blockers is one of the first steps on a path towards a permanent medical transition, involving cross-sex hormones and sometimes surgery, which can leave people infertile as adults and in need of life-long medical support. Green and Mermaids have repeatedly referred to puberty blockers as ‘ life-saving’.

The efficacy of puberty-blocking drugs has, however, been questioned by experts. In 2019, research by Oxford professor Michael Biggs revealed that far from alleviating distress, puberty-blocking drugs actually ‘exacerbated gender dysphoria’ among children. In 2020, three High Court judges reviewed the evidence on puberty-blocking medication and ruled that it was an ‘experimental’ treatment. Across Europe, countries where clinicians previously championed puberty blockers – including France, Sweden and Finland – are rapidly changing tack and are cautioning against or even banning their use.

Stephanie Davies-Arai, founder of Transgender Trend, has long campaigned for an inquiry into GIDS. After years of being dismissed, smeared and threatened, Davies-Arai now tells me she feels ‘vindicated’ by Javid’s intervention. ‘The time of lobby groups dictating healthcare for children is over’, she says. ‘Serious lessons must be learned from this. Children must never again be subject to experimental medical treatments to serve the ideological agenda of political campaign groups.

GIDS has always had a choice. Its leaders have had plenty of opportunities to listen and reflect on the well-documented clinical concerns of whistleblowers. Instead, it has largely capitulated to noisy and ideologically driven lobby groups. Javid’s upcoming inquiry will not be able to repair the damage done to patients who were let down – vulnerable youngsters who were told by people in authority that their mental distress could be solved by changing their bodies. But it is a bold and important step towards acknowledging the scale of this scandal.

Jo Bartosch is a journalist campaigning for the rights of women and girls.


At least in Britain and Europe, and certain American states, some semblance of sanity appears to be returning to the governments and courts. Too bad the federal governments in Canada and the US seem to have no problem at all with embracing catastrophe as there's no indication at all that they want to escape the grip that this fake science trans ideology has on them.

If you don't watch the others Jim, watch this one. The last part of his interview can be considered to come directly from my heart.
