Men's Rights Activists Versus Kiwi Farms: FIGHT!
Stop the Presses - 5 September 2022
I had hoped to avoid writing anything about Keffals or Kiwi Farms. Nevertheless, the “success” of a mainstream-media enabled pressure campaign on Cloudflare has led the infamous website to … move to a .ru domain, so mission accomplished, hooray? Anyway, now that Canadian Twitch streamer Clara Sorrenti has “won” his battle against the world’s most infamous troll forum, he says he is enlarging his vendetta against new targets. Oh joy! A precedent for shutting up people who disagree with him.
To be clear, I am not defending Kiwi Farms and this is not some liberal defense of Nazis parading in Skokie. My point is that many people complained about that website for many years, but no mainstream reporter took an interest until men with “gender identities” who were upset about becoming LOLcows in Kiwi Farms threads got organized behind a man removing sordid truths about himself from the internet.
You see, Cloudflare is used to protect websites from DDoS attacks, and Keffals wants to aim his “ion cannon” at the nasty threads full of receipts about his defiance of laws and regulations archived at Kiwi Farms. Those misdeeds include giving hormones to minors. Every website that uses Cloudflare to protect itself from attacks on gender critical expression now faces the prospect of a similar pressure campaign to strip them of protection. Keffals says so himself. Believe him. Why, he’s a one-man Media Matters, now.
By the way, all Substack websites — including this one, where we refuse to play pronoun games at all — are protected by Cloudflare.
ACCEPTANCE WITHOUT EXCEPTION: Reduxx has developed a whole news beat covering men who abuse children before and after becoming “trans.” Men don’t stop being men when they call themselves something else and that is doubly true of abusers. Reduxx relies on Cloudflare to protect their journalism from DDoS attacks.
STAND UP FOR WOMEN’S SPORTS: There is one week left to send your public comments to the US Department of Education regarding sex-based Title IX protections for women. Women’s Declaration USA has set up a comment page for your convenience. It is currently protected by Cloudflare.
JAMEELA JAMIL: “I never thought the leopards would eat MY face,” sobbed the supporter of the Leopards Eating People’s Faces Party. Play stupid cancel culture games, win stupid cancel culture prizes.
ANTISOCIAL MEDIA: We hear a lot about influencers and their audiences, but in fact the power to influence goes both ways. (Looking at you, Jameela.) YouTube is a particularly unhealthy platform for creators because it is structured to reward feedback loops, including harmful ones.
A MEN’S RIGHTS MOVEMENT: Last week, lesbians in Manchester, UK were mobbed and threatened with arrest for defending their human right to reject penis (left). In Germany this week, a Pride gathering featured the sign on the right, which says the quiet part out loud. The meme creator has also included the faces of some of the angry men who kettled and assaulted 80 year-old Julie Jaman and her supporters in Port Townsend, Washington last month.
FIRST RULE OF MISOGYNY: In Germany, a man shouting at “lesbian whores” fatally attacked a trans man defending two lesbians from him. Of course, within seconds, this horrific act of male violence against women was spun into a “transphobic” attack and blamed on women who reject penis, since everything men do is the fault of women rejecting men. Then the LGB Alliance committed a terrible thoughtcrime by forgetting to put a space between the words “trans” and “man,” which as we all know is an act of, say it with me, LITERAL GENOCIDE against transgender people. Explain this to normies and they blink uncomprehending: surely no one could possibly be that insanely narcissistic in the real world? And yet it is true, lack of a space is deemed actual violence, and therefore proof of evil machinations behind the scenes. If you don’t believe me, check out the responses to this tweet.
PERFORMATIVE PRIDE: Clive and Dennis talk to Barry about the Manchester Pride event. Apparently, organizers failed to provide enough toilets and then complained about transphobia when someone urinated on a trans memorial tree. According to Barry, lots of older gay men are finally noticing that they have been marginalized within the alphabetical “movement” by a bunch of straight guys in drag with whom they have nothing in common.
WOMEN CANNOT HAVE ANYTHING TO THEMSELVES: Another British university has put itself on the wrong side of equality law, this time by ignoring its own rules in order to shut down a women’s group that wanted to discuss the local rape problem without men hanging around. So exclusionary! Clearly these witches had to be harassed into silence.
IT’S CUTE WHEN PUPPIES DO IT: Just not when people do. Respect boundaries!
