Looks to me like the Troll (I think there's only one) is winning. I bet he's feeling pleased as punch now he's got us all talking about him and arguing amongst ourselves.

Pamela: When people who represent the patriarchal hegemony overwhelm the conversation, telling women how they should be arguing and determining the topics of conversation, then it marginalises women's views in the one place where their opinions should be paramount.

It would be a nice world if the only power people had was that which we gave them. Unfortunately it simply is not the case. Conversations here create the power structures. When men dominate the conversations they dominate the group.

Some men are great allies of feminism. The difference between them and those that seek to control, derail and overwhelm the conversation is that the feminist-ally men are primarily here to listen, not to lecture.

Pamela read the rules and guidelines.

I think men can be feminists.  There is a man in the group that keeps slugging it out with these trolls long after the women have left in disgust.  He is a fine feminist.  There are others.

If you want to see two people agreeing, go look at the tag team that is dumping all this garbage on the group.  They do provide odd moments of humor. One troll said to one of the men defenders of feminism, "If you want to go and create your own feminist group, there's no one here stopping you."  A man telling another man this, well, ROFLOL!

How are these men setting the tone, sidelining you or telling you how to think???  If you don't agree with them tell them off, or simply ignore the offtopic comments and go back to the topic at hand.  The only power they have is that which you give them.

Why even bother having a feminist group then? We can let men set the tone for the conversations, sideline the women, tell the women how they should and shouldn't be arguing and what they should think and simply call it 'the rest of the world'.

As a feminist I for one am welcoming of all women, not just the ones who pass some arbitrary test of what is or isn't 'wimpy'.

Thank you.

Apparently Sehkmet want to "discuss" topics only with people who have the same opinion as she does.  Wow.....how boring. 

Person one:  I think THIS.

Person two: I agree!!!



It also sounds like sehkmet thinks only women can be femninists...which I also disagree with. 


If someone is so thin-skinned that they can't take the slightest dissent, perhaps discussion forums aren't their cup of tea.  Perhaps a nice safe blog with no room for comments!


I spend far more time on Newsvine because the discussions are more lively and people actually respond in a timely manner.  But I wouldn't suggest sehkmet go there....it is FAR to rough a playground for someone with such "delicate" sensibilities.


One of my feminist qualities is that I can't abide a wimpy women.  Buck up girls...it's a rough world out there.

You don't consider personal attacks (in complete violation of the site's TOS) and long emotional diatribes, in response to rational objections, to be a problem?


I saw the thread on trolling.  Asharu and Oryx were completely out of line for posting that and the thread about derailing.  Asharu was the one who started the antisocial behavior, which is why I took Bruce's side over hers.  I don't care if I agree with someone's base position, when they're as greatly in the wrong as those two were.

Feminist organizations have turned their efforts towards preserving those area of society where they receive special benefits, and denying equality for men in areas where men are victims of discrimination. To achieve these goals, they are prepared to lie and violate what Western society considers basic civil rights.  You've seen the lying and the slander on this forum.  You've seen the demonizing of those who do not believe the Feminist Mythology.

You don't call this trolling?

I do oppose feminism.

Or this?

I have to fall back on the fact that I frequently see cases in the news where a woman has falsely accused a man of rape or sexual assault. (topic was feds under counting rape victims) 

How about this?

How is posting two and three times in a row with no other posters in between and flooding the forum with their posts not derailing, which is typical troll behavior?

How is cross posting from other topics not trolling.

Many of these behaviors are against the rules and guidelines for Atheist Nexus.  If a few trolls go off topic why aren't they opening another thread?  The fact that they don't is derailing. 

There is a reason that groups have names, to describe what the group is for. I can't see how any of these troll's posts give a feminist views and experiences of atheism.  They are trolling.

Pamela your definition of trolling is too limited and wrong. Maybe we should place rational truth bearing male Joseph as the moderator to the feminist group to ensure none of us crazy outlandish feminists can discuss any topic which males disagree with? There have been a couple of links posted recently about the definition of troll, I suggest you read them.
