Continuing its embrace of censorship.

“Reddit is going scorched earth on anything that invalidates or merely questions the current progressive line for trans politics: ‘A trans person is who they say they are, you do not get to debate that.’

With controversies in the public sphere like the participation of trans athletes in sports, trans kids being given puberty blockers, drag shows, ‘Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria,’ and so on, I believe it’s important for there to be a space to have discussions about these issues, and that might be tough for some people to deal with. But I believe in a marketplace of ideas, and trying to run a marketplace like a monopoly, saying that one idea must be affirmed before any discussion takes place, means that true discourse is dead. Reddit used to posture itself as a site for honest discussions, but in its hasty efforts to protect certain identities, has become an avenue for restrictions, and a place where a controversial opinion doesn’t get you downvoted, it gets you banned.”

Are these groups we should be inviting to join the Lemmy community so they do not get censored @masterofballs@wolfballs.com ?

also there’s probably a list of quarantined subreddits, they often quarantine before ban, and maybe those could be reached out to (ones that might align with us) much before a ban happens and scatters communities in the future

lemmygrad.ml got a shit ton of users by advertising lemmygrad as a back up on genzedong over at reddit. How many of those users are real and not Wumao idk but they still have a huge active user base over there.

Imo every piece of censorship is an advertisement for the internet libre. The best part is that people don’t need to sign up to 20 different websites to participate seamlessly with different communities.

Not sure how to contact them. But its a great idea. They might already be at communities.win

Free speech is critical to find the best solutions to problems and enjoy the full benefits of human creativity.

There can be no freedom without free speech.
