    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.
    • Reputation Has Increased!   07/06/20

      Hello. You have been asking for it and it is finally here. We have increased the number of reputation given in a day from 25 to 50. We will see how well 50 works out and if that is enough. Please continue to provide feedback and we will reevaluate as needed. This change has been added to the site changes thread located here. Happy repping. Thank you.

Speaking of these trash meme channels. 

Tf is up with the jojo videos recently??? Did people forget she's still a fucking kid? The 3 points people criticize her for over an over again:

1. She acts younger than she is (duh her audience is way younger, she's basically a brand that's why she does this: To make more money than you probably are)

2. Her daidfjaidfisdhius intro's (these people are probably not even watching her videos? I'm not cuz why tf should I watch video made for 7 yos)

3. Her hairline (That's her own fucking problem)

I don't give a fuck about this girl but the internet is just getting more garbage by day. People need to remember they are still making fun of a god damn 15 year old.

That Tracer Butt issue in the early days of Overwatch: I'm glad they changed it, not because it looks fanservice-y, but because the old pose was fucking ugly

Agreed. I think the majority of people complaining about the show just don't understand satire and hate dark humor. Or just saw quotes taken out of context without actually watching the show.

I didn't care for/necessarily agree with the backlash and was actually really excited to watch it. But I just watched the first two episodes and it seems really bad to me. I love a good cheesy/ overly dramatic show (hi riverdale) but the characters in insatiable are just stupid, especially Debby Ryan's character. I just can't feel sorry for her because she is so poorly written. But that's just me.

Does the series get better? Is it worth watching more?

I genuinely do not understand the massive hatred that exists towards gender critical feminists/so-called "TERF"s. Obviously there are people who just mindlessly bash transexuals which I don't agree with, but from what I have seen a lot of them are just feminists who point out that biological sex is a thing and that throughout history, women are and have been oppressed because of their sex (restricted abortion/contraception rights, period shaming, FGM et cetera). A lot of the issues they bring up are also legitimate issues, such as gender dysphoric/gender non conforming children being forced/pushed to transition (fun fact: childhood gender dysphoria is more closely linked with homosexuality) or "cis" women being expected to give up sex-segregated spaces like prisons and degraded to things like "uterus bearers", "menstruators" and "non-men" (strangely there doesn't seem to be as much pressure to rename "cis" men "testicle bearers", "sperm ejaculators" or "non-women"). I didn't pay much attention to them until a few months ago (mostly because I don't identify as a radical feminist) but then I actually started looking into what they were saying and thought to myself "That's it?". The way some people describe them makes it sound like they're on-par with incels which the majority of the time isn't true.

while i, personally, don't care for feminist issues, i agree. i think TERF's don't deserve hate . because if i'm gonna play devil's advocate and look through a feminist lens, yes, it makes absolute sense to be critical gender identity and such when advocating women's rights.

not to say i think it's okay to hate on trans women or constantly call them men, but if you're going to be a feminist you kind of... have to face the facts that... well, trans women are different from biological women. the experiences they face are COMPLETELY different. and a really hard pill or people to swallow is the fact many trans women, for a good chunk of their life, experienced it as a male. yes they had their own struggles, but it is different than that of a women. not saying either is worse than the other, just that they are DIFFERENT. 

i can understand why terfs would be annoyed with trans women who push themselves into discussions about female rights. and i can understand the frustration of being pushed out of SJW discussions simply because they don't want to play pretend and ignore scientific facts. 

remember when riley dennis said that lesbians not being interested in trans women may be from some sort of transphobic conditioning? yeah, if i were a terf i wouldn't take well to that either. actually, i don't need to be one. i'm a lesbian and i understand the concept of not finding people attractive.

so imagine how you would feel, thinking you're in a space that advocates women's rights and advocates not making women feel coerced into things that make them uncomfortable... then 'feminist' girls like riley come along and say dumb shit like that. 

idk, that's just something i think SJWs often drop the ball on. they stand for things and don't enforce it logically/fairly. terfs shouldn't be excluded from the conversation just because they are not willing to overlook certain things.

Ikr?? Also about her height, like who cares about her height? There's no reason to shit on her for that. I wonder if she's starting to feel insecure because of these "memes". It's almost as if the entire internet jumped on some kind of hate train against her.

the first 5 episodes were honestly a bit boring especially with her crush but after that it just becomes a big mess and i love it but honestly Patty’s character just makes me want to die

I'm not a feminist or anything else. I'd rather not delve too deep in political stuff. But lately I'm reading about men's issues from time to time and it's kinda depressing and sad. I feel like not enough people are aware of these issues.

It just irks my soul when someone is like 'omg spill the tea sis/yaaaas the tea has been spilled/bring in the receipts!!

I don't find it cool, it's just annoying and most of the time, that's not even 'tea'. That's just that person spilling their own opinion without any 'receipts'. You have to be at least a teen to say those stuffs which also lets me know ur underage on this site.

Spoiler because it’s more talk about biological sex and I’m sure you’re all tired of this by now and honestly this is all I’m going to say about this on PULL.

 

I don’t get why people keep dismissing all the professional biologists coming out and talking about how sex isn’t as simple as being XY or XX. There are 6 karotypes that determine your sex. Most people have not gone through and will never go through the genetic testing required to know what their sex really is. Currently, your sex is determined the minute you are born by your gentalia and not by what your chromosomes are. I know as humans we want to put everyone into neat little boxes, but biological sex really is more complicated than people realize.
