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.
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.
What you describe is "off-topic posting"...not trolling. Trolls purposely post outrageous inflammatory material to get people riled up. These discussions went off topic, mostly becasue the only people who stayed in the thread wnted to discuss the off topic subject. If anyone WANTED to continue the original discussion they could have. You are supposing that the off-topic posters had some sort of power to stop everyone else from posting. But they can't do that. I post on Newsvine all the time and there are side discussions and threads often go off-topic once the origianl topic has been abandoned.
I think you are inventing a "problem" that doesn't really exist.
Only one of the people involved in the discussion wasn't a feminist. I was only on his side because the two feminists were arguing very dishonestly. If my own faction is doing wrong, I oppose them in it. It's called cleaning up your own back yard.
As atheists, we run into the same thing with the emotional "atheists" who are mad at God and aren't really atheists. We teach them skepticism and turn them into good atheists.
