I only represent myself. Also, I don't post drivel racist or otherwise. Drivel is intellectually lazy...like your trolling in mensrights.

Unlike /r/shitredditsays the users of /r/SRSsucks and /r/mensrights have the ability to think for themselves; conversation of ideologies is encouraged in those subreddits. SRS is one giant playing-the-victim circlejerk.

SRS operates in the way it does because the population of the sub is very insecure. It is apparent that most of the users have been marginalized by society. Instead of trying to bridge the gap between people they spread hate. They are suffering from the same "bully complex" as children do in elementary school. Their radical views are not able to be argued in the realm of logic and reason so they refuse to take part in discussion. If anything they are damaging the reputation of the individuals they claim they are defending. When an individual from the demographic they claim they are defending speaks out against them they abuse them in the same way they claim men and society are. SRS is the darkest of dark facets of feminism that I have ever seen.

Ironically it seems to have gotten to a place where those opposing SRS will downvote you for criticizing a user known for spreading openly racist copypasta just because you're SRS.

>It's about the free speech apparently. SRSs allows blatant racists because the blatant racists don't call them out on their shit. Or something like that.

I'd rather read a "freer speech" subreddit than one that is so logic averse as SRS/The Fempire.

I mean really, the SRS/Fempire circlejerk is just getting sad, lame, and pathetic now.

I still have to assume it's a circlejerk, because FSM help SRSers if they really are as radical and unstable as they make themselves appear.

I'd say Reddit as a whole is illogical and unreasonable for denying social science due to anecdotes. It's up there with people denying evolution.

As far as radicalism goes, it's not a moral indicator and I pity anyone who sees it as such. It simply indicates a strong and persistent rejection of a social more. Women in Afghanistan who simply attend school are "radicals". People in the US who only eat the food they themself produce are "radicals" but that's hardly evil. Using "but they're radical" as a put down is ridiculous.

Are you trying to put words in my mouth ?

Nowhere did I equate radical with evil. I don't appreciate your attempt at making this a semantic argument.

I'd say chants of "Die CIS scum", "Misandry don't real" or "Check your privilege" is a pretty radical way of carrying on. Would you not agree ?

Sure it's radical, but are you seriously going to pretend you were using "radical" neutrally there? I'm not putting words in your mouth, I'm rebuking you.

banning people for saying racist things won't prevent them from thinking them, and I find the world a safer place when all the crazy is out in the open.

The fact that he doesn't harass people makes the difference. Racists will always exist, at least he doesn't act like westboro baptist church about it.

I hardly believe that he believes that stormfront shit though, he's probably just trolling.

Trying to convince people to be neo-Nazis is okay if it's being done "for a laugh" or if he's not following people around?

To be fair, as SRS is literally like the westboro baptist church, the killwhitey stuff that totally happens sometimes for real is less troubling than the tendency for thousands of SRS members to form flash mobs and picket the funeral of random white people with signs reading "permaBENNED" and with pictures of BRD on it.

Admittedly that last thing has never happened either but the thing is that I can imagine it, and therefore it might some day happen, and doesn't being able to speculate that something might one day happen make something just as real as if it had?

He has every right to post his stormfront copypasta. He is willing to take part in discussion about his personal ideologies unlike SRS. SRS's views are not the problem. The delivery of their views and the harrassment are the problem.

You have straw manned my argument within your first reply to me. I never once used the word evil to describe feminism. So no, I did not lecture you about "the evils of feminism." (By the way, the period goes within the quotation marks not outside of it.) My anecdotal observations have led me to the conclusion that SRS refuses to allow discussion on their sub because the users are unable to develop logically sound arguments. You also evaded the issue that I presented in my statement; the problem is the delivery not the view. You have employed two logical fallacies in your first reply to me.

You and your cohorts are one of the things wrong with this website. Reddit was once predominantly populated by individuals that were highly educated. The website became popular and the flood of foolishness swept in.

You are still evading the issue. Are you able to argue your point with out committing logical fallacies? What exactly do you feel sorry that I "believe." Much of what I have written is not a personal opinion but rather a reality IE that you are arguing with logical fallacies.

Do you believe that SRS is doing something productive? Discouraging discussion does not improve anything. Many of the individuals that SRS claims to defend have been very outspoken about opposing the sub. Stormfront actually delivers their message with more tact than SRS does; they also encourage discussion rather than banning all those that oppose their views. Before you try to commit another logical fallacy, I do not agree with any of Stormfront's ideologies.

I have taken many university classes that would fall into the category of "women's studies." My university has a very prestigious group of feminist professors. My experience in these classes leads me to the conclusion that none of the professors would agree with much of anything SRS has to say. Radical dictatorial feminists are looked down upon by much of academia. Discussion is encouraged in this realm.

You don't seem to understand what the informal logical fallacy of evading the issue is. Your accusation would be more of a red herring but even that it is not. My comments were relevant to the discussion that was occurring.

> I haven't made any arguments, I haven't talked about SRS, and I haven't made any "logical fallacies".

You have made arguments and you have also made statements that are logical fallacies. Whether you intended your statements to be arguments or not it does not matter. You have made statements that are considered syllogisms thus they are arguments.

I am not sure why you would place logical fallacies into quotations; they exist and it is fundamental to understand them to develop logically sound arguments.

Your question is one that is loaded on the verge of being loaded; this is also a logical fallacy. You are quite aware of the answer to your own question. It is obvious that he does not represent /r/SRSsucks; the opinions of members of SRSsucks are quite diverse because they encourage discussion instead of banning opposition.

> Nothing you have said has anything to do with my initial question, nor anything else.

You are accusing me of what is known as a "red herring fallacy." I did not do this. I was stating the differences between /r/shitredditsays and /r/SRSsucks. As I said, SRSsucks encourages discussion of ideologies and therefor not one individual could represent the community.

Everything I have said related to the initial question. You appear to have a fundamental misunderstanding of what a logical fallacy is; this is a trait that in my observation many SRS users can be characterized as having.

> I'm not evading any issues, you're bringing things up that I could care less about.

You are evading issues. You seem to not understand that you are no longer in SRS; your community bans those which attempt to cultivate discussion instead of acting tyrannical but that doesn't happen in the rest of Reddit. This isn't your "fempire." If you can't handle having your opinions and statements opposed then it may be best that you stay in SRS where no one can argue with you.
