Someone peaked on /LesbianActually a few minutes ago and of course her post was swiftly removed before anyone could comment or agree with her. I screenshotted it and will share it here because I think her voice deserves to be heard somewhere. The OP was brave for posting but I'm sure she's banned now. Here it is (I added a little more punctuation than the original):

Title: Ridiculousness on this sub

Catfishing is outta control and the mods don't do shit. Now the trans lesbians are saying they don't feel included or appreciated. Boo fucking hoo.

As a lesbian I am sick of men and bullshit controlling my life. I don't give a fuck if you're trans, if you're a lesbian, guess what we take a lot of shit and you have to deal with it like the rest of us. You were a man where you didn't have to deal with all this shit and now you're a female. Guess what IT COMES AS A PACKAGE. No one is going to coddle you and say yas queen. If you can't handle the hate then leave.

Trans lesbians bitch CONSTANTLY. You know why because they didn't grow up as women, constantly being harrassed and degraded. Now they come into being a woman and are like "WOW people are mean and I don't deserve to be told anything but that I'm a queen and beautiful! You guys should support me blah blah blah" Guess what as a man you didn't have to deal with it, and now you do. This is every day. No one is being transphobic or mean, it's just life as a woman.

WELCOME TO BEING A WOMAN! IT'S NOT ALL FLOWERS AND MANICURES!

Can't wait for the transphobia bullshit. Welcome to a LESBIAN NOT TRANS SUBREDDIT.

That's how you know nobody actually believes they're women. People treat them like extra fragile scary men.

If they treated them like women, they'd be ignored.

[–] JLT 36 points (+36|-0)

Ha, I was bullied throughout the entirety of my childhood. Being ignored is a good day for me. These men have some seriously deluded ideas about girlhood and womanhood.

[–] Owlchaser 21 points (+21|-0)

Welp, that's what happens when someone cares more about his own perception of something he knows nothing about, than to ask another person about their life and their experiences, and listen. The arrogance of it all is disgusting.

[–] arachne 50 points (+50|-0)

ikr. I have an abusive male family member and people treat him the same way they treat transwomen, because they are scared of violent and angry men. They have to be supportive, encourage his narcissism, and applaud him for doing literally anything Women are never treated like that, lol.

[–] anonwasawoman 17 points (+17|-0)

Yup - people treat transwomen this way because they literally wear their unstable mental health status as a fashion. Any male makes it clear they're unstable, and women all know to walk on eggshells and treat them exactly the way they want so they don't implode and go IT'S MA'AM (or worse) on you.

[–] sistersunite 22 points (+22|-0)

yes, they get more respect and catered to. Their feelings matter but if they were really women upset about something they would be dismissed, called Karen, told they are just overreacting and need to calm down. They all know the difference and that person calling themselves trans gets more protection than women get.

[–] JadedMillennial 15 points (+15|-0)

Didn’t Dave Chapelle get cancelled (or at least they tried) for making a joke that trans rights only got so far so quick because white men are doing it? I mean where’s the lie?

[–] LasagnaRossa 11 points (+11|-0)

They are treated like special men, in fact they get praised for the most mundane things. Real women don't get that amount of praise online for doing unremarkable makeup or wearing unfitting dresses.

That's cos they know they are extra fragile scary men :')

If a an actual woman posts a picture of herself, there will be some support, but also a ton of people calling her an attention whore and saying she's fishing for compliments.

But a TIM doing that same thing? He's the most stunning and brave person on earth.

You even see this in female dominated spaces (except this one, thankfully). A woman posting a near flawless face of makeup will have nitpicky critiques, whereas a man posting a picture of makeup that's done with 1/10 the skill of the woman will have a ton of women falling over themselves to compliment him. Especially if it's a TIM. Back when I was into makeup I used to browse MakeupAddiction on reddit, and on one particular TIM post a woman gave a very small critique, but the rest of her post was gushing about how beautiful """she""" was. The TIM got super offended because she's the only one that dared to criticize his sub par makeup. Meanwhile, a woman in a men's space will be called a fake, and be sexually harassed.

I also peaked when TIMs started invading women's spaces. It didn't happen immediately, but eventually I realized that these so called women were just pornsick men. Hopefully these other peaked ladies can find their way here.

[–] AfroViking 63 points (+63|-0)

I gave up on r/MakeupAddiction when a 40+ TIM posted a picture of himself with blue eyeshadow smeared poorly on his eyelids and somehow that was worthy of 10k+ upvotes. It was so weird how many posters felt the need to fawn over him for such a mediocre attempt, yet would mercilessly criticize other women who actually had skill. That post helped peak me.

[–] Carthimundia 64 points (+64|-0)

OMG I remember that. What made it even worse is his reddit name was 'sissybaby69' or something disgusting like that, and a quick look through his posting history showed he got off to posting in female dominated subs. So it was purely a fetish thing. and of course the woman who discovered this an posted a warning (along the lines of "hey, he's doing this for a fetish, so don't give him attention") got banned.

[–] girl_pash [OP] 38 points (+38|-0)

You're 100% right. I've heard that the TIMs have taken over MakeupAddiction just as much as they have the lesbian subs.

[–] Proserpina 48 points (+48|-0)

It feels like they've been showing up in r/sewing more as well and the posts get a lot of support. Not sure why it's so impressive when a man adequately performs a task that women have been doing for millennia.

[–] How 39 points (+39|-0)

You will never convince me that one of these guys spent the evening taking out their daughter's school uniform dress so that her breasts are less noticeable at 10 years old like I just did.

[–] themiserychick 13 points (+13|-0)

I've noticed that. There was one recently posted pictures of himself in Princess Diana's "revenge dress", it got thousands of upvotes.

[–] milpathecat 12 points (+12|-0) Edited

Gay men have been reaping that male privilege in areas like sewing, knitting, make up and hair for aages. It was a matter of time TIMs caught up.

Edit: And don't get me started me on the chefs and professional cooking...

[–] VirginiaW 5 points (+5|-0)

I’ve noticed that too. I just block them immediately because I’m peaked!

[–] Figleaf 2 points (+2|-0) Edited

All of the traditionally female craft subs are rife with this. The top like 10 posts on r/knitting are "Not sure if I'll be welcome here as DUDE KNITTER! But I'm a GUY comfortable with MASCULINTY enough to do do a stupid girly hobby" + picture of shitty crooked beginner scarf.

Theres also a dude who posts in EVERY fashion sub pictures of himself in extremely mediocre and dated women's clothing getting tons of praise for no reason.

[–] [Deleted] 63 points (+63|-0)

I cannot believe there are any actual (actual) lesbians still left on those subs, like they are absolute 24/7 sausage fests at this point

[–] girl_pash [OP] 47 points (+47|-0)

I think the actual lesbians will peak when they realize that there is no alternative lesbian space to the trans-heavy ones AND that they aren't even allowed to create one. That's sorta how I peaked. I didn't see the issue with TrueLesbians yet everyone who supported that sub was called a bigot in the ActualLesbians sub.

[–] Kevina 20 points (+20|-0)

Sure. They can have trans only spaces but no one else is allowed to have any type of space that excludes trans ppl for any reason.

[–] Sunkised 19 points (+19|-0)

It's slightly better in real life, but lesbian groups still have 1-2 trans women. It's disgusting and people are too afraid too speak up

[–] gcfemale 55 points (+55|-0)

It will just peak more people... I don't see that as a bad thing. We are Cassandra and general public will not be as kind as we are.

[–] Raghaille 8 points (+8|-0)

I love that analogy, we should respond to each T*** comment with CMC so when asked what it means, we can respond with Call Me Cassandra! 😂 That tickled me...

[–] Stealthygal 34 points (+34|-0)

Welcome to being a woman. THIS.

And this is why most of us can't believe men would CHOOSE to "be" women unless they really saw no other option. Who would CHOOSE to be a second-class citizen?? They see forthright feminist comments and think ours is a world of being heard and spinny skirts. The view from the inside is very very different.

[–] anonwasawoman 13 points (+13|-0)

They're incels - they don't think women are second-class citizens. They believe we have all the power in modern society because they don't feel in control of their sex drives.

[–] TheHistoryMachine 28 points (+28|-0)

TRUTH.

[–] suupersami 26 points (+26|-0)

I hope OP manages to make her way over here, and I hope her post caused other women peak or at least start thinking about why that sub keeps acquiescing to men's "validation".

[–] Kevina 25 points (+25|-0)

I said this exact same thing in a trans sub once, idk maybe honest transgender or something. Op was talking about how hard it is to be a woman (for him at least) because of all the "upkeep". Yes. Being a woman is hard. What did u expect? I was of course heavily chastised by everyon3 except the op, who thanked me.

[–] ixora 13 points (+13|-0)

Why don't they be honest at this point they all just want the costume. They want the woman costume.

[–] KissMyOvaries 11 points (+11|-0)

I’ve seen some TIMs detransition because they couldn’t handle the upkeep. Of course we all know this wasn’t a dysphoric TIM. I mean if the choice was between offing yourself and female maintenance, is there even a choice? The dude went back to boy mode and his happy little male life.

[–] RumHam 25 points (+25|-0)

Do you know her username? Should message her and ask if she wants an invite here

[–] girl_pash [OP] 20 points (+20|-0)

Unfortunately, when I screenshot her whole post I cut off her name. That's a great idea though, and I'll keep that in mind in the future. I literally screenshotted her post when it was 8 mins old and went to grab a snack and refreshed the page and it was deleted :(

In the past, I have used my free reddit awards to send women who I believe are peaking messages that they aren't alone and that's been successful!

[–] Proserpina 22 points (+22|-0)

Is this the thread? If so, her username is still there, so someone can invite her. :)

[–] [Deleted] 34 points (+34|-0)

The TIM rolling immediately onto the scene (bonus points for having "XX" in his username, a nod to the female chromosomes) to immediately "Not All Men Trans Women!!!" it all. Totally disregarding all of the frustration and hurt from OP due to lifelong misogyny against her, just skipping right to the defense protocol men default to when a woman expresses hurt. Lol.

[–] ouvalemonde madfem 22 points (+22|-0)

“I identify as a neutron striking uranium-235, but that doesn’t make me an atomic bomb.”

Wow I love her.

[–] girl_pash [OP] 15 points (+15|-0) Edited

Yes! How can you still see that? I'll message her and ask her to check out ovarit. I am unable to give out invite codes yet.

[–] NewMa 12 points (+12|-0)

OMG that TiM mentioned above, if you look at his comment history... it's like a sociology class in how TiMs keep each other going.

[–] ouvalemonde madfem 25 points (+25|-0)

There's no rage quite as beautiful as freshly peaked rage.

[–] Griffxx 24 points (+24|-0)

I didn't think anyone in that Sub would ever peak. I wonder if the post is a banning offense?

"Don't engage with OP. She actually has said she wanted a Trans free Lesbian Sub."

Well Duh!

[–] ixora 17 points (+17|-0)

Wow a lesbian subreddit without men, back in the day some would say that was normal.

[–] Griffxx 11 points (+11|-0)

Because it is normal. We're currently living in Opposite World.
