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

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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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