Influential Mumsnet Site Censors Day for Freedom, Freedom of Speech Discussion
From Breitbart. Note to British Mums with children reading this site – this is Mum’s Net the band of mad left-wing harridans. Not to be confused with Net Mums who actually do discuss sensible things like local Mother & Baby groups and trips to the park.
Administrators of the influential Mumsnet website — seen as key opinion formers among middle-class demographics and courted as such by Prime Minister David Cameron during his tenure — have censored a freedom of speech discussion relating to the forthcoming Day for Freedom march.
Apparently attempting to draw attention to the coming protest on the Mumsnet ‘Feminism Chat’ discussion board, user ‘DonkeySkin’ apologetically noted that while “some of these speakers have said things that go far beyond what is acceptable” to Mumsnet users, nonetheless “as many feminists are finding, we too are being silenced under the guise of ‘hate speech’”. Concluding, the user wrote: “I’m not quite sure how I feel really. I’m just wondering what other people’s thoughts are on this, especially how it relates to the current silencing of feminists.”
The message, and subsequent deletion by Mumsnet administrators for failing to be “in the spirit of the site”, comes among a broader conversation and controversy about transexual men presenting as women, and the rejection of them as true women by feminists. . . Indeed, the original Mumsnet poster self-identified as a TERF and noted that should likeminded feminists protest for the freedom to recognise only actual women as women, they would certainly be silenced by social media companies — a prediction that Mumsnet itself seems to have fulfilled by deleting the content despite having previously promised to not allow trans activists to censor speech on the site.
Remember – the rally is now in Whitehall, NOT Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park. Update re details as they are released.
