This post is OC by me, (Russia is not my reddit username though) and explains how /r/OneY came to be under close editorial control by "Social Justice Warriors." In other words, this post presents evidence that /r/OneY has contracted MetaRedditCancer
TiTrC has been the top-most active mod in OneY for around a year. TiTrC was also once, if not a more moderate feminist who still gave more than lip service to valuing mens issues, at the least trying harder to maintain an image of being moderate. That all changed within the last few months.
He brought on Radical feminist woman Jess_Than_Three as the third out of the three relatively active mods on OneY.
He, CosmicKeys and relatively inactive mod RobotShoelaces explicitly ban any posts that make reference to feminism in one Y. After a wave of backlash, he changes this explicit ban to a de facto ban, automatically triggering 'review' of these posts and suggesting that if mods aren't given editorial control over the posts they will be deleted.
Oh, also immediately after that post they began banning people who were critical of the new content restrictions. Surprise, right?
Just looking at TiTRC's recent history, you can see how deep down the rabbit hole he's gotten. 9/10 posts are about how feminism is great and men need to get on board with it, some highlights of his recent contributions to OneY:
To be perfectly fair, TiTrC still has, now and then, the ability to have a different opinion than the most extremist and reviled feminist viewpoints
But his ideologue position really shine through when you see a post like this, where he repeatedly pimps himself as being able to 'step back from culture warrior feminism and see the bigger picture' to give himself more credibility, then spends dozen of consecutive comments defending feminism's petty culture warrior fights, moving goalposts for feminism, and handwaving away problems with feminism the movement.
It's the context of things like that, it's hard not to wonder if those rare moments of asserting any room for discussion or plurality at all are just about keeping up the supposed credibility. Just yesterday right before starting a debate in this subreddit, TiTrC posted a first self post in a long time that wasn't just a parroting of feminist newspeak.
Does it make that post somehow less good if he was doing it to shore up his credibility? No. His motives for writing it don't matter at all. But it's still an ounce of moderation in tone compared to his comment and post history which, with only a couple exceptions, has been all about highlighting the worst of male redditors, MRAs, and Gamer-Gaters (Videogamers fighting against a similar cancer but specific to a subset of professionals in their industry).
Sure he has a few pet issues (e.g. feminist cultural strictures on dating) where he splits from the ideology, and then regularly pushes that to disguise himself as dispassionate non-ideologue and a good listener. But he's not dispassionate. Like most of his comments which aren't mod-related are on some gender war stuff dicking around whatever side of the issue the men are on.
Let's take a moment to consider how fucked up it is that while, reasonably, the mods of TwoX are women and discussion of feminism is allowed as a regular conversation topic; OneY is controlled by three or four active mods, at least two of which are obsessed with promoting feminism and attacking the mens rights movement, and have seen fit to advance that by limiting as much as possible mens ability to even /talk/ about feminism or the mens rights movement.
In summary: this is why I'm adding OneY to the sidebar.
