There is a conflict. This conflict exists now and will continue to exist. In order to resolve the conflict, a conversation needs to happen.

Some people think if they can just crush the opponent out of the conversation, they will win. The reality is, your opponent will continue to exist, and you'll just lose the ability to have civility with them. The conflict will remain unresolved.

If you have something to say, you need to try convincing the other side of it. The alternative to this is war. If you're not a warmonger, then choose the path of peace.

The strange thing is, somehow *I* am accused of being the warmonger. I've never attacked anyone. A lot of people have tried to deplatform, attack, silence, and defame me, though.

Then when I say this, people accuse me of trying to play a victim. But I'm telling the truth.

I support Spinster because I think this conversation is important and needs to happen. I agree with the ideas of radical feminism. People's argument against me is "you're a bad person," but it's just a lie, and does nothing to address the arguments of radical feminism. If people have real substantial arguments to make, they should make them to the women on Spinster. But they should also listen and try to understand them.

Another option is to just step away. This issue really doesn't have to be a crisis all the time. In fact, I think about this issue very little except to the extent that people treat me like shit for it. I spend most of my time writing good code.

Just, whatever you do, try to make it productive. It's so much cheaper to destroy than to create. Even if it just means stepping away from the conversation and having a good laugh. This takes confidence. Have confidence, choose the path of peace, and don't blame the world's problems on me.

"I think all censorship should be deplored. My position is that bits are not a bug. That we should create communications technologies that allow people to send whatever they like to each other. And when people put their thumbs on the scale and try to say what can and can’t be sent, we should fight back - both politically through protest and technologically through software" — Aaron Swartz (1986 - 2013)

@alex I might not agree with you regarding feminism, but I’ll always hold respect for a person who stands up for what they believe in, and help those they care about through the provisioning of tools.

Trannies know they will lose the argument. The surgery does not work. You can't turn a man into a woman. Not even a sterile simulation of one. The whole thing is a mental disorder, that's why so many of them kill themselves after surgery when they realize they were conned into having their PENIS AMPUTATED!

Only a reign of terror can maintain this obscene fucking lie. Look into the career of the pedophile psychopath Dr. John Money, the ghoul who originated the modern meme malware that amplifies this madness.

I try to not let internet commentators get to me, but that "stop trying to be a good person" comment earlier really did bother me. Like, I could go the route of Anakin Skywalker and become a full blown Sith lord, but how does that make the world better in any way? Why would a "good person" try to discourage others from being a good person? I gave this comment weight because of who was saying it.

- Implement Group timelines and give them the same treatment
- Make an algorithm to order the posts based on Like count and time
