Feminist pressure groups taking steps to ensure censorship of criticism: A threat to freedom of speech and liberty for us all
What should/should not be allowed on the internet?
Who should get to decide whether material that expresses an opinion that may be offensive to some is appropriate?
However, things have now taken a highly sinister turn. When the men’s rights movement launched a campaign that tried to present the other side of the ‘rape culture’ debate, it became apparent that what the femnists had really achieved was to set up a censorship policy under which they could not be criticised.
Many thanks to the brave woman who writes Shining Pearls of Something for bringing this to my attention:
Feminists have long endeavored to have their opponents labeled as ‘haters’ and their material censored as ‘hate’. Well, I am not a ‘hater’, I am just a woman who believes, from the bottom of my heart, that they are wrong. I ask them to respect my right to feel and express this. I ask them to consider whether they are happy that I am currently writing this in fear of repercussions and having my voice silenced. I ask them to consider who is oppressing whom.
Please go to this Facebook page and tell them exactly why this is wrong:
