    Let me help you out. He's supporting your POV on this articular topic as he has on numerous occasions.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I'm not really too excited about neo-Nazis, but I guess as long as they aren't inciting violence.

    I think the name "Spinster" is exceedingly clever. Am I understanding you correctly, the movement to which you subscribe is against gender politics? Does that mean you don't support this whole 187 genders nonsense? I was recently asked on a medical form what my "preferred pronoun" was. I had to look up what that even means. I was tempted to write in "rutabaga", but I left it blank, lol.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    Oh don't worry, they incite plenty of violence. Nazis gonna Nazi. That kind of thing is the down side of truly free speech; you get social networks revolving around ideologies like that too. There's a cost to everything.

    Correct. Radical feminists believe that womanhood is a material reality, not just a state of mind that anyone can claim.

    My favorite part of this is that Gab is usually stereotyped as "far right." Obviously, Rad Fems would not fall under that category.

    Granted, it's become pretty obvious that any developing alternatives to mainstream media are usually painted as far right if they go against the prevailing narratives.

    It's kind of sad that this is now considered a radical idea. There was a time when it was considered common sense.

    Exactly. One does not have to even be a conservative at all to be labeled a "Nazi" in today's political climate and suffer all manner of cultural penalties.

    As it pertains to feminists, the disingenuous conflation of feminist ideas with those of the Third Reich actually began with conservatives about a decade ago after right wing radio host Rush Limbaugh coined the term "feminazis" to describe ostensibly radical feminists (but actually just meant feminists in general). Today, radical feminists, and furthermore anyone with gender critical views really, are commonly branded as "Nazis" by the left as well. I get called one all the time by leftists and conservatives both, which I think any rational person would recognize as a patently absurd claim.

    It's kind of sad that this is now considered a radical idea. There was a time when it was considered common sense.
    A lot of views that are today consigned to feminist radicals used to be the near-universal consensus of the women's movement as a whole. Four decades ago, it wasn't just the radical women like Kate Smith and Germaine Greer and Robin Morgan who rejected what we today would call transgenderism, but also the ordinary, mainstream liberal feminists like Gloria Steinem, Eleanor Smeal, and Betty Friedan. The women's movement used to likewise have consensus opposition to prostitution.

    Today there are also all kinds of specialized misogynist slurs on the left to describe those of us who maintain such ostensibly hateful views: "terf", "swerf", etc. They don't even just stick with "transphobe" or "anti-sex" and so forth like they do for the men who maintain analogous views on these issues; they have to have separate, specialized terms that apply only to the women who do; insults applying only to feminists and lesbians. (The accepted terms describing our views on gender identity are gender critical or gender abolitionist because we aren't against trans-identified people, but against gender as an idea.)

    If one labels an American conservative a fascist / Nazi that person is an uneducated fool. Nazis would scoff at conservatives' platform for lower taxes, limited government, federalism, etc. They would even scoff at the neoconservative fetish of spreading democracy by the bayonet.

    Nazis were Statists. Very much like American liberals. Hitler and Mussolini told each other that FDR was one of them.

    The COMPLETELY INSANE, over-the-top freakout over this development here I am admittedly finding hilarious and highly satisfying. I'm really glad I posted this here.

    There has always been a place for the bitties to get together to gossip, complain about men and share recipes.

    That used to be the kitchen and at PTA meetings etc.. this is no different

    Girls talk about boys, Women talk about Men and Old Women talk about Old Men.

    Nothing new in the world.. just dressed up different.
