So he got nuked for implying that Joy Ann Reid is a clown. That's a solid way to go out I guess. She is certainly a clown.



Wow, misogyny is a serious crime, LZ. How do you respond?

Based on the evidence posted, he appears to be a male feminist, but it's up to him if he wants to be remoulded into a human being.
Ehh... I know lots of dudes that think they are feminists, but don't really understand what the people currently in control of the term actually mean by it. His being banned for "misogyny" by era leads me to believe he might fall in this camp.

Fuckin Germaine Greer is a misogynist according to Ree

That's fourth-wave feminism for you. Using social media in an attempt to ruin people who don't fully agree with your radical agenda to tear down society.
What if I told you feminism's goal was always to tear down society and the fourth-wave is just its natural conclusion

I certainly wouldn't agree that was always the goal, but "natural conclusion" may have some truth to it. It does seem inevitable for most rights activist groups to constantly evolve their end-game as soon as they achieve their goals or get close to it. I suppose it makes sense when there are so many people that have devoted their lives and careers to the cause.

Spot on mate. It's an industry.

Still, though, it's interesting to see how quickly things have escalated in just two years. Self-proclaimed feminist progressive allies like LZ, who were part of the vanguard in jumping ship to ResetEra, have now been labeled misogynists and nazis by that community for not being extreme enough in their opinions.

It is interesting. I don't think it's changed that much though. I think they just ran out of targets.

It's the same behavior it always was. Gamergate started out as mostly liberals. They were basically treated like nazis back then too.
