    Is it just me, or is there an overwhelming absence of female input on this thread?

    I did a quick scroll down the page and counted only a small handful of names that one might expect to be given to a female (sorry, not to gender-normalize : / ).

    As a woman, my reaction to this site is that I'm glad someone is putting a spotlight on some of these comments. Granted, they are pulled out of context. I'm not very outspoken or vehement in my opinions, in general, let alone regarding feminism, but some of the comments on the site seem to be inappropriate no matter what the context.

    Discrimination, of all kinds, can be subtle and still have a massive impact. On top of that, it's hard to see the discrimination if you're not the one experiencing it.

    So... I don't mind that someone made this site. I'm glad they are more open to put their opinions out there than I am.

      As a woman my reaction to this Tumblr is that it polarises people and feeds the regressive left's SJW agenda in which they want to silence people for having the "wrong" opinion. There are a couple of misogynistic comments on that site, but the vast majority of them are not misogynistic at all.
