24 hour Facebook mute for saying trans women don’t belong in women’s spaces

RANT Submitted June 28, 2020, 10:38 a.m. by whatisevenleft

I commented in a private gender critical Facebook group post about a conversation someone had had with a friend about trans women in women’s locker rooms bs lesbians in women’s locker rooms. I commented that “men in women’s locker rooms are like a fox in a hen house. I’m not afraid of a lesbian seeing me but I am afraid of a man assaulting me or leaving out.” I just got a notification that I have a 24 hour mute on Facebook and my next violation will result in a 3 day ban. I’ve seen so many posts on Facebook that are anti-woman and threatening to radical feminists. I’m not surprised just frustrated at the double standard.

I’ve seen so many posts on Facebook that are anti-woman and threatening to radical feminists. I’m not surprised just frustrated at the double standard.

What your describing is much worse than a “double standard,” because what you are being muted (the female condition) for is a simple declaration of obvious preference, not a threat, not even a very pointed remark. FB might as well be telling women that they are being muted simply for making routine remarks. It’s way beyond dumbfounding, but is probably just plain old T-driven censorship.

We need to launch an exodus from Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and other sexist social media platforms and start our own. Any other solution is but a temporary compromise.

joedude · June 28, 2020, 11:18 a.m. · 3 replies

we need to delete the internet and force conversation in real life. None of these sickos would have the gall to say these things in public around other people.

NitzMitzTrixTrans Enablement Refusing Feminist · June 28, 2020, 11:20 a.m.

Unfortunately the compromise of staying on the Internet in necessary in our day and age. Also don't underestimate the nerve of men.

If we had a forum run by women, we wouldn't be pushed around like this.

ccnnvaweueurf · June 28, 2020, 1:26 p.m.

We should decentralize the internet. Either with tons of small transmitters or a satellite network. This is the only way forward for a truly free internet.

KilgurlTrout · June 28, 2020, 9:46 p.m.

Honestly, when COVID-19 dies down, we should really start having in-person gatherings, rallies, etc.

Isn't that the whole point of being in a gender-critical group, to be able to speak your mind and BE gender critical? And they muted you for it? What utter bullshit smh

whatisevenleft · June 28, 2020, 12:17 p.m. · 2 replies

It was a Facebook mute. It wasn’t the group.

spam_riskgender critical =/= transphobic · June 28, 2020, 12:19 p.m.

Thank you for clarifying - although it's still messed up for Facebook to mute you for expressing your opinion in a group thats sole purpose is to express that opinion...

InspectorIsOnTheCase · June 28, 2020, 12:41 p.m.

But someone likely reported it to Facebook.

Speaking of foxes in henhouses, sounds like you have one in your private group.

Agreed. I'd be on alert.

coppershrike · June 28, 2020, 8:07 p.m.

And if you find the spy, name them so other gender critical people can block them. I block trans cult boosters all the time on Facebook, as soon as I see them, and that has cut down a lot on being put in time-out by FB.

I’ve seen the worst things of Facebook like literal clips of rape and killings. I would report them but get a notification that it doesn’t violate guidelines and the most I can do is block the person who posted it. Social media platforms have become truly pathetic by allowing these posts to stay up but banning people for saying I don’t want to share a space with someone who has the opposite genitals to me due to fear of sexual assault. 😴

Bluestockingmama · June 28, 2020, 12:12 p.m.

Exactly. I reported a local man who was advocating violence against protesters IN my city (I live in an area where there are a lot of protests). And I got the same “doesn’t violate guidelines,” bs.

My cousin posted a video on Facebook of a woman getting semen shot into her mouth which she then spit back into his mouth and he back into hers. But the penis was just off camera so when I reported it I was told it didn't violate terms and conditions. Her boyfriend also posted a video of a mother, holding a child, getting shot to death, and that wasn't removed either.

I can’t even find it in myself to be surprised anymore 😴

Also there are those porn sites where cameras are secretly slipped into women's locker rooms ie inside of toilets...all it takes is a male to say he identifies as a woman to go in a locker room, place such a camera in the room and our privacy is suddenly on public display.

MoodyRose · June 28, 2020, 12:08 p.m. · 1 reply

This scares the shit out of me, they could do it so easily. I need to look up these hidden cameras to know what they look like and try to spot them. I try to avoid public restrooms as much as possible, it's horrible it's something we need to fear now.

petroldrinker · June 28, 2020, 4:28 p.m.

Turn on your phone camera and look around. The lens of a hidden camera that has night mode as well as the eyes of spiders show up through phone cameras. Any toilet camera has to have night mode.

I think your story and the stories mirrored on this subreddit as well are clear indications the left is eating itself from the inside out. As a woman I have always been and felt inclined to be left leaning on women's and gender issues but now it seems the far left is eating away and taking over the entirety of the left political spectrum.

I've seen many instances where that argument is made for the right that far right white supremacists are taking over the rights political spectrum but in reality very few right leaning participants are actually involved in white supremacy, overt misogyny, hatred etc stuff based not in logic or science but feelings. Now we have the far leftist views not based in logic or science but in feelings that can peddle extreme views like anyone can be a woman while side stepping what the actual indicators of being a woman is. The far left argues against basic biology and refers to it as hate speech.

So now you have the normal left nearly completely consumed by the far left and there is no issue. But the mirrored version of that is the normal right no where near being enveloped by the far right but the media is constantly saying right wing ideology is based entirely in white supremacy, hate speech, illogical statements. While the normal left in actuality is based in trans supremacy, hate speech and illogical statements not backed by science. It almost seems like the right leaning political spectrum is being used as a scape goat.

In my real life, I only know one person who buys into the TRA rhetoric and she is a 22 year old “pansexual” who is still dating her first/only high school boyfriend. The LGB friends and family in my life don’t buy into it, just college girls trying to outwoke each other on social media.

TheOGJammies · June 28, 2020, 8:03 p.m.

It’s wild isn’t it? I guess it’s the lefts turn to feel powerless against the fucking crazies in our party. I just hope we don’t end up with a left wing equivalent of Donald Trump

leparsdon · June 28, 2020, 1:59 p.m.

Facebook once removed a post I made denouncing pit bills because flagged it as racism (?). Facebook is a joke, yet when I reported actually hate and harassment things, nothing was done.

IceColdLover · June 28, 2020, 2:03 p.m.

There is an infiltrator in the group who reported you.

From what I've seen from this debate/movement is that trans ''women'' their beliefs/safety/concerns etc are far more important to many people than actual women's, real women are just told to shut up, or are silenced and censored.

whatisevenleft · June 28, 2020, 3:31 p.m.

Exactly! Trans women have nothing to fear in women’s spaces. We are not a threat to biological men no matter what hormones or surgeries they’ve had. It’s so frustrating. Nothing will be accomplished until straight men are made to feel uncomfortable. Too bad there are so many transbians compares to “straight” trans women.

DaughtersofLilith · June 28, 2020, 4:05 p.m.

Social media platforms, just like academics, religions and professions, are created by men, for men, to further enshrine and institutionalize male dominance. They may let us use them, but they will never serve us or our needs.

ekb88 · June 28, 2020, 5:39 p.m.

I reported a clearly anti-Semitic cartoon, and got a generic “does not violate standards” message back. It’s really disturbing that your comment in a private group made the cut for deletion and muting, but a cartoon posted publicly did not.

Sounds like OP has double standards too, I guess.

Cis-Women are not excluded from being predatory.

So you're saying, if a cis-woman peaks at another woman, or OP specifically, with predatory intent, it's fine, cause ya know, she's a cis-woman.

But if a man or a trans-woman does the same it's suddenly a big freaking issue.

Idk bout y'all, but that sounds like a double-standard to me.

the_lonliest_shibe · June 28, 2020, 6:30 p.m.

Yes that is exactly right and no it is not a double standard. Men (including transwomen) are far far far more dangerous than women (including "cis" women (or women as I call them)).

This is a fact not an opinion.

whatisevenleft · June 28, 2020, 9:38 p.m.

I’m not afraid of females in close quarters. I am afraid of males in close quarters, especially when I’m in a vulnerable position like changing clothes.

In a private Facebook page? Perhaps GC Feminists will have to develop secret words to thwart the automated "hate" filter?

coppershrike · June 28, 2020, 8:09 p.m.

More likely a trans cult mole snuck into the group. The TIMs are big on letting letting their female toadies do dirty work for the men.

FB is garbage. They defend hosting videos of animals set on fire for lulz and people sending women death and rape threats because of freeze peach and then silence women like you and many others.
