I do wonder what redqueen would say about

the increasingly frequent discussions on DU about sexual harassment & assault. Her posts about misogynist cultural behaviors seem to have percolated through.
I do miss her thoughts.

2. She stoppef posting here in August 2014.

She got a lot of grief for her posts and positions. Enough finally was enough for her.

9. I moved to different platforms to discuss feminism and politics, that's all.

Missed you guys too but this place just got to be too much for me.

Now that Trump is in office and a GE is coming up, I couldn't stay away.

21. Very similar, but my mom has been quite ill. So have been taking care of her.

The carousel never stops.

22. Hope you're able to spend some quality time with her

while you're taking care of her. I did and those are moments I will never forget.

I lost my mom last year. Miss her so, so much.

12. I was saying upthread, I considered checking in after MeToo went viral

but was honestly afraid it woulnd't have changed things much.

Anyway - I'm back! But mostly just for the GE. I'm still afraid to talk about feminist issues here.

6. As before I miss redqueen

Passionate, articulate & what she'd have to say about the Toronto misogynist terror attacks, I'd be interested in knowing

13. Oh, I've got a lot to say about incels.

Not too sure it's worth talking about it here, though.

7. What happened?

I don't come around much anymore (due to misogynist culture).

14. I just had had enough

of the way feminist issues were discussed here. I still don't know that this is the best place to discuss them.

I am back for the GE at least though.

8. You know, I almost came to check, but I was honestly worried that it would be disappointing.

Like I said before I bailed - there are better places to discuss feminist ideas than DU. Talking about it here just seemed to be too despair-inducing iykwim.

How was the MeToo movement received here? Were the victim-blaming crowd silent or were the vocal? If they were vocal did they get a lot of support or mostly shut down?

15. I found it mixed, but more supportive

There will always be 'she was asking for it...' But the incels , themselves, seem to be too young for DU.
