Facebook: Overrun By Misogynists? Ginette Pinazzo Keeps Fire Burning
While not as 'complete' as the Virtual World system of Second LIfe, Facebook has been an effective way to raise Matriarchal awareness, engage in meaningful dialogue about Gynarchy and Feminism, and seriously impact those in areas where the oppression and abuse of Sisters is at its worst.
Of course, regardless of the platform, expect attacks from misogynists (or MRAs as some call them). I have noticed a recent increase in trolling techniques in various systems, especially Facebook.
It doesn't help that Facebook's own (and very recently revised) anti-alias policy has cut down on the voices of those who (for safety and security) choose wisely to keep certain personal information private. The Facebook policy now insists all users expose their 100% 'real' names publically, which, if you think about it, puts many at risk for speaking their minds. This is an assault on freedom and Empowerment.
My 'inbox' is filled with threats of all types, every day. Imagine if these misogynists made it to my doorstep. Facebook has, in effect, threatened anyone with a strong belief by disallowing pseudonyms. Apparently no one told them at the front office of the real dangers of NOT using pseudonyms.
In any case, I continue the mission regardless of FB policy (still fighting with them over this). Precedent has been set recently with cases where certain alternative lifestyle communities have sued Facebook to demand safety for their own lives by stopping the practice of 'fake name reporting'. (that is the practice where ANYONE can claim someone is using a fake name and get their account disabled). If you pay close attention, this is a scenario from an Orwellian nightmare. (Reporting others to silence their voices) Is it any surprise that anti-feminists groups are employing this technique?
The mission continues!
