What's the collective noun for terfs?

A Clump or Clod?

Must admit, I'm amazed that people go as far as posting there. The amount of advertising is unreal, but actually posting on "Prosecco Stormfront" just ensures its continued success and prominence.

One could argue that the constant Glin watch gives him extra exposure and prominence too though. It's all part of the same morbid merry-go-round.

nah, disagree. the cab glinner threads have even been flagged up by prominent trans activists as a useful resource (and yes I am a tiny bit proud of it, lol, not that i'm the one contributing much to them)

But what to do, bgmnts, what to do?  Following that line we could adopt the rule never to speak of anything that is not both good and beautiful (and clever).  But life would be duller and more ignorant for it.  I never visit MN, I think I've only been there once, ever, when I was pointed at it by a conversation here.  Took me about 45 seconds to realise it was not an interesting place at all.  Never went back.  It's like reading one of the UKs godawful papers, why would one do it if one had the choice?

The glinner threads - their fucking titles - have given me enormous pleasure, obvs.

The titles are incredible, I will say.

Yeah that's fair I suppose.

In it's defence, it is big and very busy, so after you've skipped the trans stuff, and the rich person dilemma stuff, there is still some interesting things to read. Some heartening threads with people talking about their cancer, or escaping domestic abuse.

I think I've posted there a couple of times, can't remember about what, and I stopped reading a couple of years ago. My impression is it's got a lot worse on the trans stuff, but that might just be I'm less able to over look it now.

Oh, being a parent might make a difference too.

I'm always totally stumped whenever I go on MumsNet because I find it impossible to navigate.

Maybe if I ever have a child I'll understand how to read it.

I think it's an interesting place too, outside of Twitter it's probably the biggest site in the UK where people can post anonymously so can be interesting for gauging the nation's (mainly female) opinion.

There's a huge amount of trolling, threads/posts deleted by the minute - moderating it must be a nightmare.

They say you never understand the Mumsnet Document Object Model until you've got held a child of your own in your arms.

Is intersting, as you say.  The Pistonheads forums are similar, all be it the male equivlent.

Feminism and Women’s Rights is TERF central. They’ve got a sub forum for sex and gender debate, but it gets EVERYWHERE. AIBU always has threads about pronouns and how woke[1] the youth of today are.

It’s actually had invasions from Pistonheads. ARRSE as well, spamming them with rape porn and pictures of battered women, which is not doing much to counter the idea that the military is full of violent rapists.
 1. on Mumsnet, wokeness is about being pro-trans rather than black social consciousness

When FWR invade AIBU it's always a loaded question like "AIBU to think that a man shouldn't be able to go in a spa and stick his penis in a small female child's face?"

When the vote is (obviously) in their favour they then use that to say that 98% of women in the UK don't want transwomen in single sex spaces.

That graph vs wokeness... I wonder if the blue line is average personal earnings, or average household income. Because they used to calculate mortgage affordability (and therefore the market price of a house) on the basis that only one person (probably the husband) would be working. I mean, that would be the beginnings of a point, if Mr Woke was informed enough to make it.

Things that are 'woke', according to various fuckwits on the internet:
 - Graphs
 - Thinking trans women are women
 - Pen Farthing's fan club, i.e. people who think dogs and cats should be airlifted out of Afghanistan ahead of people, which is pretty ironic given that these types tend to be the sort of people who would much rather save animals than refugees because herp derp they're all terrorists anyway
 - Adverts with black people in
 - Thinking G-d Save the Queen is a dirge
 - History, unless it says that the British Empire was Good, Actually
 - Getting angry and shouting at people for disagreeing with your opinions
 - Pronouns, generally
 - Sir Keith
 - Gareth Southgate
 - Asking people not to use racist slurs
 - Feminism
 - The majority of kids' books

Why though? He posts there.
But so much of it is just "look at this stupid opinion from someone", and has nothing to do with Glinner.
