any Gen Y women here who remember the fun days of 4chan like 2007-2010? 72 posts and 7 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.
There was sexism back then, but nothing like today. The manosphere/mgtow/incel/red pill destroyed that place. Likewise, I feel Gen Z engage in lots of bullying.
I used to pretend to be a guy circa 2007 and never admit to being a woman and it was fun. I also feel this was before politics and echo chambers. /pol/ destroyed 4chan. I remember before /pol/ existed.
Anyway, this is my first post ever here. Just want to get this off my chest. I feel bad that I can no longer enjoy a message board I grew up on.
gen alpha is people born after 2011 or some shit
I not only built a small community on 4ch back then, but I met my partner and good friends I still talk to today. Now, I can't imagine ever wanting to go out on a limb to communicate with anyone there. I blame it all on /pol/, as it was always bad, but aside from random slurs and whatnot being thrown around on other boards, it wasn't a big deal because their politics were cartoonish neo-nazi stuff. Now, those white supremacist libertarians/anarchists ect. are the minority, arrayed against this coalition of extreme authoritarians that have slowly taken hold. I shoot as a hobby and visit /k/ quite often, and it is jarring to see /pol/ refugees that would have once been right-wing death-squad tier, forced to admit they have more in common with everyone else on the political spectrum than the dominant force on their old home board.
If you're a real woman than it shouldn't matter. I think the only people who genuinely let those comments effect them are well… trannies.
On cc its particularly annoying because people just start calling you a tranny if you disagree with them and refuse to address whatever it is you are actually talking about. The witch hunts get people wrongfully banned and just encourages the group polarization that happens here.
So its not the insult itself that is bothersome because obviously real women know they are real women and don't need "validated", its how its used.

I relate to this. My last real "from 4chan" friend is from 2012. Not much longer after that interacting with anybody became too much of a dice roll.
