    • 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.

Lol let's also stan Bloody Mary a.k.a. Mary Tudor because she's also a strong female ruler. I saw some bullshit woke rant about NK finally having women representation, having a female ruler doesn't equal feminism, take a look at English history. I wanted to rant about feminism being exploited by promoting wrong problematic women but people themselves are starting to notice. 

 

Wow, why don't we all stan Elizabeth Bathory while we're at it lol o.O

I'm sure this one's going to rustle some jimmies...

IMO the extent to which we extol the virtues of SWs is too extreme. Some people immediately get defensive and assume you're anti-woman if you critisise the behaviour of someone who just happens to be a SW... There are literal women forced into the profession against their will, or in order to survive/feed their families. And instead we continuously glorify middle class women who've chosen of their own volition to disinfranchise our youth by selling it as a glamorous lifestyle on social media. These women deserve respect as all people do, but not to the detriment of our youth or at the cost of common sense.

I don't have any problem accepting the profession in itself, or the people who partake in it. It's not my place to judge. What I do find problematic is the extent to which it is romanticised, normalised, and almost placed on a pedestal as the epitome of "feminist values" when promoted within our society. It's having an observable effect on our most vulnerable, some of which are intent on commodifying themselves well before legal age. And don't get me started on the frequent lack of care taken when cultivating an online business... The amount of children following these accounts (some SWs even interacting with them) is astonishing.

The same feminists that defend sex work as empowering and want to censor words like 'vulgar', 'slut', prostitution etc. are the same ones that call women against that misogynistic prudes. I've personally witnessed that hypocrisy. Why is even the word 'prostitution' replaced with 'sex work'? It's literally the name of the job.

Any person who thinks female leadership = female empowerment is already on thin fucking ice when it comes to an argument. It's a slippery slope, and to (loosely) quote Simone de Beauvoir, the opressors wouldn't be as strong if there weren't some of the opressed on their side; just because someone's a woman doesn't mean she'll care about women's issues.

Hidden Content

Also, being favourable to sex work (not just prostitution, but porn stars, cam people and everything else) is a shitty stance. Not that sex workers themselves are bad people: absolutely not (they are more often than not marginalized people who are pretty vulnerable because of a number of circumstances - poverty, addiction and such)! But being favourable to an industry that exists solely to exploit is just disgusting and feminist porn is an oxymoron.

It's no wonder that so many ex-porn stars end up addicted and mentally ill due to the severe psychological, physical and sexual abuse that runs (in) the industry, not to mention victims of sex trafficking or forced prostitution, or people who had their lives ruined because they had intimate footage leaked (sometimes of consensual sex that was unknowingly filmed and/or uploaded to porn sites, sometimes of rape). There are numerous books and studies published on how much porn distorts our vision of sex and how that affects people on a microscale (like how you can't be satisfied by what reality looks like, mental health issues, and biased/distorted views on kinks and sexual preferences) and on a macroscale (objetification, desensitization to rape and violence against women and children etcetera).

This wave of "sex-positive" feminism is paradoxical because it only encourages you to say yes, but never touches the part where you can (and should) say no: not wanting to have sex like this or like that, not wanting to have sex with this or that person, not wanting to have sex right now, or not wanting to have sex at all are all valid positions that are often getting women scorned/shamed for being prude and vanilla. It's not about owning our sexualities and expressing ourselves, but about benefiting men - those teenagers who are posting nudes and lewds online are not being empowering, they're literal children exposing themselves to predators; the girls who engage in hookup culture without being emotionally ready because "it's cool" are not liberated, that's plain and simple self-harm. This mentality is nothing more than another coercion mechanism, an even more dangerous one because it leads us to think that we are making that choice - but are we, really?

 

Thank you for writing this, I couldn't have said it better. We're being fooled into believing our good intentions are liberating us, when realistically all we're doing is gratifying men, pedophiles and adding to the porn sickness epidemic... Which is influencing people's mental health and normalising behaviours starting younger, and younger. The old adage "the road to hell was paved with good intentions" seems particularly applicable right now.

Girls, usually 'not like the other girls' , I know irl who post those annoying quotes on how sarcastic they are, aren't actually sarcastic. Also, what's so special about being sarcastic? Everyone can do that, if you overuse it to the point of being the main thing about you, you're just being a bitch. 

 

"I'm sarcastic. I'm blunt. I'm nice but I can be a bitch. I'm offensive. I'm real/woke." <----- All signs of a dull person

You cant hate a guy just because him rejecting someone made that person cry, guys are not obligated to say yes to everyone.

Big Companies don't care about LGBT or Diversity, they only do it so they don't get their asses handed by people and also to pertain to an audience to make money off of them. Video games that try to make it super diverse only do it because they know it will get more people to have a good image on the company so they can make more profit off of it and good boy points. It's sad and disgusting but that's the reality.

 

100% agreed, most of my family would just give a show a watch if there's someone from our country in there.

usually people jump at other who say "you're too young to wear that", but fail to realise that the child in question is being sexualised, they're simply wearing something not meant for their age. The perfect example is Danielle Cohn.

Rehabilitation is the best way to treat criminals in most cases, there's probably no limit to how severe the crime must be for them to not be eligible for it. When you fight with fire, only more evil and chaos are born out of it.

I don't care if Paige Niemann is 15 but the girl is practically a skinwalker and it's fucking creepy. Ariana has every right to feel uncomfortable about someone completely profiting off her looks and personality trying to fool people into thinking they're the real deal.

 

something about that is very unsettling. people are upset at ariana for speaking up and at those who are angry at this girl. i’m sure when we were all 15 we wanted to be like our faves, but not to the point where you’re stealing their face. taking someone’s style is one thing but taking them on as a persona and basically copying their entire being is frightening. i’m not sure if her parents monitor what she’s doing but I think she might need to talk to someone or something because something doesn’t sit right about it. she then says she isn’t a fan anymore but there’s a shrine of ariana right behind her? :/

People keep defending her by mentioning that it's pretty much what every celebrity impersonators do, but do impersonators also go all the way to adopt their idol's entire mannerisms onto their everyday life too? Even in that stream where she said she was no longer a fan of Ariana, her behaviour was really uncanny.

she doesn't even really look like ariana if it wasn't for makeup, posing and editing, so the fact that she's going this far to look like her *on purpose* is so creepy. she's copying her mannerisms too, she's constantly squinting and doing that thing with her eyebrows. paige said she isn't a fan anymore bc ariana criticized her but ariana has every right to be upset and creeped out. her being 15 isn't an excuse, she got so many followers out of this, collabs with youtubers and hella articles written about her, she knows exactly what's she doing. would be funny if ariana took legal action bc she absolutely should lol

Can we talk about how Paige is dressing like a legal adult going clubbing? I know it's normal to dress provocatively with today's kids but it's still concerning. I'm sorry but a 15 year old wearing a see trough top with a push up bra underneath, very short leather skirt and knee high boots is inappropriate. It also looks incredibly cheap like it's from Aliexpress. People in majority of European cities would've ask her how much an hour and be horrified when she tells them she's 15. Paige's makeup is also a proof that dramatic instagram makeup looks atrocious in real life, it has been proved so many times but people still do it. I think that her parents support her since we saw many times that parents support their kid's online fame whatever it is because 💵💵💵. That girl should find her identity because you can't convince me it's healthy to be someone else in the age where you have to discover who you are and where you belong.
