    You get it. It isn't about indoctrination or feministic favouritism. It's money. Ad revenue. Traffic fueling.

    Props for taking the rational approach. Something that is mostly lacking in this thread.

      the Twox mods actually aren't ban-happy at all as long as you don't insult people or use inappropriate language. i've been poking fun at radfems in that sub for a long time and i still haven't been banned because i follow the sub's rules. i think their mods are quite fair and seem to take a hands-off approach.

      i think it was idiotic to make twox a default sub, though. it's probably getting a huge influx of trolls, and i kinda feel bad for all the regular girls there who just want to discuss periods, pregnancy scares, and boyfriends with other girls. now they've gotta deal with all the bastards.

      Men will ignore it or get banned from the community pretty quick

      This is actually great and a good point. Especially for normal guys out there who dont fall too deeply into the "tow the feminism line". You know what I mean, they guys that only learned a scant bit about Susan B Anthony and woman suffrage so therefore think of feminism still as great, beneficial, and about equality. As soon as a guy says something the strays/challenges their convicted notion of womanhood's infallibility or something that would be an innocuous comment in the real world like "as I guy I like women who dont wear makeup/wear skirts/with long hair" they will hate and chide. I can see an instaban, growing resentment, and the looking of other movements. That's pretty much how I ended up being less favorable toward these so-called "safe spaces/echo chambers" on this website.

      Get this Fox News-style fear mongering out of here.

      Truly disappointed at how emotionally invested yall are in fucking reddit defaults. Who gives a shit? Also, I just visited /r/TwoXChromosomes for the first time and it does not strike me as feminist in any right.

      Sidebar rules say

      • Respect: No hatred, bigotry, assholery, utter idiocy, misogyny, misandry
      • No tactless posts generalising gender. We are a welcoming community. Rights of all genders are supported here.

      Is this a joke? I'm lost for words as to why this is a default sub?

      I've just been on their front page, and a poll asking "should TwoX be a default subreddit" is up.

      8% have said yes 67% have said no.

      I can only assume it was handpicked by the admins to indoctrinate new Redditors with feminism and attract more women to the site.

      I think you're correct, and it's an admin's agenda putting this as a default, however, it will make no difference to TRP. Even if it did somehow take the sub down, there are plenty of other websites which can be used as TRP's replacement home. We'll be fine.

      No joke unfortunately. I don't think it will harm us immediately, but it shows everyone just how biased the admins are. There have always been rumors of admins helping SRS, but they tended to operate in the shadows... Now they're directly trying to enforce their twisted version of "equality."

      You know, in a way, this will only make us stronger. More publicity for them conversely means more for us. They might just end up dragging us onto the front page with them, some day.

        Of course it's the admins! They let SRS run rampant with downvote brigades yet scream at any other sub doing the same. It's not much more to prop up a hamster sub despite the site's disagreement.

          It's a place for women to talk about women stuff that they may feel uncomfortable talking about anywhere else. It's a bit weird they got defaulted, as the people there definitely didn't want that as it increases the influx of detractors, but it's not like the subreddit is unworthy or trashy or any number of things people have said: it just caters to women's issues, like TRP caters to a certain kind of men's issues, except much less controversially and more universally (discussing medical problems specific to women as well as things related to sex). What is the harm if one female focused subreddit is defaulted, really? Why do you care at all? It's not like they defaulted SRS.

          Besides, if you look at lots of the posts it's not even radically feminist: a recent post about a rape case that was posted was shot down because the case clearly wasn't rape, there was a woman asking how to make her wedding as cheap as possible, and there was someone ranting about how one night stands do not equal rape. This is nowhere near the "end" of RP or reddit.

            From a post titled "Hey hormones. Chill the eff out" regarding wanting babies after period (ovulation), despite otherwise regularly not wanting children

            This frenzy only lasts about four days, and then after that I am insanely grateful that I have the IUD because I do not know what I would do if I did not have that level of contraceptive protection. Poking holes in condoms, "forgetting" to take a pill. My body even goes so far as to think "Hey you, random good looking man who is not my husband! You are a great candidate to imagine you impregnating me!" I would never cheat on my husband, but this brain is being held captive by my uterus and it's only demand is to be filled with BABY.

            "held captive" (so if it does happen its not my fault...)

            "filled with baby" (yep...)

            All praise the coil/implant, no amount of condom piercing or forgetting the pill can help her get pregnant once she has that.

            This is true, but at least a man will take agency when his little brain trumps his big brain.

            Reddit has to do what Reddit has to do to be profitable. Feminists love to blog about their hurt mad feels and how the government should protect them. If reddit can attract more subscribers with stupid shit like #banbossy they definetly should. The more Feminism is forcefully pushed on people the more some will rebel and come here.

            Sites like reddit, where users create content, instead of "reblog" or "pin", will always be male-heavy, you know, because men create things.

                This is as much of a statement as having Atheism as a proclaimed main subreddit. It shows what kind of userbase they want (even if it was "chosen" for it's subscriber count), and they are going to get a ton of new readers for it.

                People don't close reddit accounts, because you can just unsubscribe from whatever bothers you. But it will show the world "hey look, we're a feminist blogging site" and lead to a stream of angsty teens and middle age women coming to ruin whatever "quality" that subreddit could have proclaimed to have. This will ruin general reddit quality, but I imagine it is already shit. I don't have any much interaction with main subs, but when I have, I see the kind of shit that goes on there.

                It's going to become a breeding ground for tbp as poor young males are shoved this propoganda.

                It already is. That has been the consensus opinion of reddit for over a year now. The only thing keeping it alive are small communities like this one that are seldom seen anywhere near the front-page masses of idiocy. But /r/bestof is ruining even that.

                Possibly. Although Hillary will be the same as Obama except harder on women's issues which will cause some backlash as Obama isn't nearly as well liked as he was circa 2011/2012. I think the democrats would do much better with a fresh face in the young liberal techy group than they will with Hillary but Hillary will get assloads of support regardless.

                Feminism has never been and never will be about being 'profitable' from middle-class understandings of the term. If you are a 0.1%er chopping champagne bottles with sabres.. profits are neither necessary or all that interesting. Inverting entire cultures, bankrolling internet shill armies and spreading feminism?

                This.

                The harder you try to push your agenda, without any subtlety (and third wave feminist shit all over subtlety) and only with brute force while being openly hypocritical (saying that you're oppressed when in fact you're the oppressor), the harder the reaction will be to it.

                It happened in Turkey when they tried to force Islam - an atheist, secular reaction.

                It will happen here. The very fact that r/TheRedPill exists in this politically correct hellhole is an example of that.

                  There'd be a feminazi lynch mob rallying on Tumblr instantly. If any male-centric subreddit was made a default the SJWs would flip shit. But apparently it's okay to default TwoX to balance out all those "male" defaults, like /r/pics and /r/funny

                  Making TRP a default would actually be the quickest way to kill this sub though.

                  You know what, I welcome the challenge. We have some pretty great tools in place thanks to RPS, and the moderation team has done a pretty good job of it IMO. I was talking to an admin today about vote brigading and he said we've done a good job of putting a stop to it, which other subs (TBP, AMR, SRS) could learn a thing or two from our example IMO.

                  This not a big deal or a sign of a feminist bias conspiracy. They doubled the number of defaults from 25 to 50. Do you really expect a few stinkers to not be in 50 subreddits? I definitely can't name 50 high quality TV channels out of all I have ever seen. They basically added a mediocre female gossip reddit to their package, again similar to cable practices. If "the view" is on TV, just change the damn channel.

                  50 is a lot of shit for a new reader to handle. But then again, the average redditor doesn't stray much from the main path. Maybe they're trying to encourage exploration

                  But /r/mensrights doesn't have more subscribers. /r/mensrights has a tad under 90 000 subscribers currently while TwoXchromosomes had about 150 000 before going default http://redditmetrics.com/r/twoXchromosomes

                    I found the sub from people bitching about all the "womyn-hating" in other subs. Came here, pretty much confirmed everything I already knew about women. Score within your level of game, maintain a strong mind and body, plenty of fish in the sea etc.

                    The outside hate comes from people who can't face frank discussion about the reality of man-woman relationships. Every subreddit that challenges the consensus receives similar hate. That's why TRP, atheism, childfree all get brought up as toxic subreddits. They are just places that happy people chat about how free they are from the expected norms of being a beta male that lets women take all his money, being an indoctrinated member of the flock, or realizing that popping out kids in your peak years just wears you and your wallet out.

                    it wasn't always like that. About 6-7 years ago, it was the place that helped me realize how not christian I was. It was the place that allowed me to find other like-minded people, and read about their own frustrations, their de-conversions, and how to deal with evangelicals who are completely incapable of seeing reality the way you see it.

                    I will admit that in it's present state, it's pretty bad, but it will always hold a special place in my heart, it's why I created my first reddit account (now long since deleted, unfortunately.)

                    That's probably because you put faith and religion on a pedestal. People who think differently than you = toxic.

                    It's the same circlejerk all over reddit. As someone who objectively reads posts in different subs, there isn't much variation in tone or quality of the people. Just different groups of puerile thinkers saying their shit don't stink.

                    For example, the enmity between this sub and SRS is pointless. If you truly think someone is toxic just ignore it and move on. Talking about them feeds their ego and creates this lame "they're our rivals!" vibe.

                    Not sure what you're talking about when it comes to atheism, since most critics of the sub from what I've seen over the past two years have been atheists themselves. Their problem isn't disagreeing with the message of the sub, it's disagreeing with the immature content of it. See /u/Aalewis and the may-may scandal for reference.

                    In the past month or so, TRP has gone up a few thousand subscribers. That is an intense increase, considering the subreddit I moderate (with generally the same # subs) grows at a fraction of that pace.

                    People are opening their eyes, and realizing that social norm isn't the only way to think.

                      No, they will ban it.

                      Look, the writings on the wall. They will support liberal causes, and push liberal subreddits and they will start to crack down on hated subreddits for the slightest infractions. The rest of reddit thinks this place is a house of rape or something stupid. They will jump on the smallest infraction.

                      It is not longer about open discussion, its about PC feels.

                      Once they endorsed gay marriage, it was game over. I'm not even against gay marriage, but the moral certainty of the user base will override any kind of free speech sentiment.

                      I'm out, I'll just read blogs or something from now on.

                      That really bothered me too, almost as much as my Chrome new tab page telling me to "Support Ban Bossy!".

                      Like I don't give a fuck about the gay marriage debate, but since when do tech companies need to force political campaigns on their users/customers? If the people who own Reddit want to privately donate to a cause, then cool, but the company itself should remain neutral. I don't want to be known as the "gay pride guy" because I use Reddit.

                      Now there's an anxious stickied post up. In response, prominent posts at 2XC have noted that theredpill is having a fit. This perpetuates the notion that theredpill is a reactionary women-hating group. And you know what? Worrying about twoxchromosomes getting default status is about as reactionary as it gets. This subreddit clearly does not walk the talk. I had to unsubscribe.

                      The reddit admins are trying to make reddit appeal to new usergroups. Historically, women haven't been very interested in reddit. /r/TwoXChromosomes is one of the most popular subreddits for women.

                      This is really pretty obvious.

                      In the event it was handpicked, I believe a more reasonable explanation would be that it was chosen by an individual or two, not a decision of an overwhelming number of moderators or administrators. Someone made a case for it, was convincing, and so it was done.

                      People will read it, form the own opinion, and move on. That sub is not a gold mine of anti-men or neo-feminist propaganda. For example, a quick look over there during the writing of the comment has posts such as: "Bought pregnancy tests at the dollar store... cashier was rude!", "How can we get this wonderful community taken off default?", "Hey hormones. Chill the eff out.", and "Rape =/= One Night Stand. A short rant.".

                      So, before you lose your shit over some anti-feminism hysteria, take a second to remember some of the core tenants of TRP: be cool, be rational, and be just.

                      Agreed. Reddit is predominately male. TwoX seems to be a place for females to feel more "at home" on the Internet. Why not have a "home" on the front page of the internet to grab the attention of more females.
                      Everyone saying there is some "feminist agenda" or something along those lines sound stupid. Reddit is a business and they're trying to attract more members from their minority demographic. Smart move on their part.

                      If you fear monger over feminism, you're going to have a bad time. That's all there is to it. TRP is not about denouncing feminism. The aim is to have our view rationally presented in a calm manner. Some will buy into it, others won't. Their reasons will be their own and we have should not care what their reasons are. /r/mensrights fear mongered and expressed wholly anti-feminists views. TRP =/= misogyny. TRP is its own tao and has takes its own path.

                      Talk about having no life. I mean seriously, who has the time to try and suppress other people's ideas? In this case, opinions on how something might affect someone else entirely.

                      Shouldn't the merit of ideas be enough to accept or decline? Censorship is control. Control the language and control the debate. Control the debate and control your circumstance.

                      Tyranny of the masses is real.

                      It means to be invaded by other subreddits with downvotes (or upvotes, I guess).

                      A few subreddits that hate our guts linked to the post and their users jumped in and started downvoting it, until it got buried.

                      This is something we're not allowed to do here because we feel that the admins would be willing to delete our sub the moment we do something wrong like brigade.

                      Short of the admins holding the brigading subs to the same standards that we would, eg being deleted if we got busted for brigading, the answer is no. The admins know SRS, AMR, and TBP brigade, but I suspect they won't do anything about it because the admins themselves are among their supporters. Until I see something posted by SRS, AMR, or TBP mods saying to stop brigading because they risk deletion, I'll stand by what my statement. To my knowledge none of those subs have been threatedned with disciplinary action wrt brigading. If someone has evidence to the contrary, I'd love to see it.

                      I can only assume it was handpicked by the admins to indoctrinate new Redditors with feminism and attract more women to the site.

                      Nah, I doubt most of them care about that. It's probably more about trying to present a much maligned site as progressive and tolerant and all that. Basic PR stuff.

                      Do you see trouble brewing?

                      I always see the potential for trouble to brew.

                      Is Reddit turning into Tumblr?

                      No, you could easily spin that and say due to the reputation reddit is getting because of TRP, they've done that to clean off some of the mud that TRP has dirtied their reputation with. There's no need to look into these things and speculate, we can all manipulate a point to make something look like something as I have just done, most likely they want to retain a female demographic to exploit for ad revenue.

                      And if so, should TRP have a lifeboat on another site that we can turn to when this sub is eventually taken down?

                      TRP should have a lifeboat. Bookmark http://puerarchy.com and follow endorsed contributors on twitter if you want a contingency plan. If ECs wanna reply here with their TRP social media to put some minds at rest, do so.

                      even their trashy subreddit doesn't want to be default rofl. some poll on their shithole (could barely find it do to the miserable design) says 85% of them don't want to be default.

                      thankful to have trp mods that care about our community. would really suck to not only be a bluepill moron but then belong to a sellout community run but morons.

                      to answer your question, we don't need to lifeboat to another place just because reddit is run by and populated with bluepills, betas, and white knights. wanna know why? because this isn't a reddit thing. this is a world thing. the world is populated with these kinds of people and you'd be a fool to think you can just avoid it forever.

                      I just wish there was some way to prevent vote brigades, but idk how you'd do that without making it one of those closed, invite-only subs.

                      I personally don't see the problem. If women need some place to go to talk to each other about women shit then that's fine with me. I think it's good it's a default because it's going to get a lot of the feminists that are new to the site to post shit in their instead of in AskReddit or another super popular sub.

                      That subs not so bad. There are some pretty cool down to earth chicks there. They are usually drowned out by the fat loudmouth short haired uggos, but they are still there. They identify as feminists, but they are the kinda feminists that find fullfillment in staying home, raising kids, sucking dick, and baking.

                        They want to be thought of as part of the cause but they know deep down it leads them to misery. Nevertheless, they'll pretend to along with the heard. It's more important for women to be seen caring than to actually care.

                          Well duh. Can you not spot the feminism friendly admins? (Just informed they actually removed MensRight as default back in the day because feminists complained loud/persistent enough). It's quite obvious especially when you consider something like SRS is still around despite breaking rules via blatant doxxing and general site disruption similar to /r/GameOfTrolls. The rest of the site is headed towards feminization and promoting beta traits. All we need to do is make sure masculinity and personal commitment to it stays strong and we'll ride it out. Though, to be honest I used to be especially progressive and pro-feminism but their insanity, childishness to opposing viewpoints, and chide police nature have actually made me fairly against it.

                          However they did pick some stupid ass subs to be default though other than that one.

                          Do not presume for a second that something is good simply because of its name. "Feminism" has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? It makes you think that it's an innocent cause that only wants to "make the world a better place", doesn't it?

                          As a man, I see it doing a lot of harm in the world and providing me no benefit.

                          Cons for feminism: Feminism strives to eliminate personal responsibility and blame everything on "society".... since I'm a straight, white male, I apparently control "society" and am to blame for anything that ever goes wrong. Feminism has generally fucked up the economy by doubling the workforce and makes it harder for me to get into law school and get a good job. Feminism has made it nigh impossible to find a girl worthy of a LTR. Feminism has guys thrown out of school or imprisoned if a girl falsely cries "rape!" Feminism has infected academia and made many of my classes unbearable. Feminism encourages mindless groupthink. Feminism supports other leftist political movements I hate.

                          Pros for feminism: Fucking nothing.

                          A better question would be, Why should a guy support feminism when feminism is completely against men's interests?

                          If you can't handle even reading text about anything female related you've got a lot of work to do.

                          No self respecting male would bother to be worried that women dare discuss things that interested them.

                          Are you so afraid of a female's thoughts you have to shut them away?

                          This whole discussion is useless, primarily to the simple fact that any truly red pill guy wouldn't give a flying fuck about an internet thread gaining more exposure, male of female centric.
