Reddit Women Fight Trolls With Hilariously Gross Period Talk
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Funny shit
I'm not sure I even know what some of this stuff IS... period shits?!?!? -- but apparently it's like KRYPTONITE for trolling males! Clever minxes, I see what you did there.
That is really smart. The women of Reddit are using Reddit tactics to fight bad Reddit men. Bravo!
Who trolls the trolls? We do!!
Too funny! lol
As a regular user of Reddit I agree with this explanation:
The problem started not with Eve's original sin, but with Reddit moderators' decision to make TwoXChromosomes a default subreddit. Default subreddits automatically appear on the front page of every Reddit user's homepage, unless those users specifically unsubscribe. For some subreddits, being made a default is good news; it means that many, many, many more eyeballs are on content posted to that specific forum. But other subreddits prefer the relative anonymity afforded by being able to fly under the radar. Users of TwoXChromosomes had particular reason to be alarmed by an influx of new members; while many users of Reddit are mild mannered normal dudes who aren't jerks (NOT ALL REDDITORS!), the site has a reputation of attracting a strain of sexist dick weedery that could have proven an unwelcome headache to women who rely on TwoXChromosomes for a sense of community, safety, and support.
TwoXChromosomes should not have been made a default subreddit. Bad move, Reddit.
