plenty of posts removed, sure, and, apparently, warnings issued but not a single ban ..


Best jab that alert button even harder then.

Wombatdeath has just set him / herself up to be targeted for Termination, for daring to challenge the mods in that thread.

Of all the forums I post on, some even weirder than DS, none have a clientele and moderators that are quite so fucking awful in equal measure as those on DS

Which ones were the transphobic comments, btw?


Good question, I haven't seen any.

It was one of many removed between dorydaryl's post 20 and DS's warning post 21.
I can't believe that wasn't an instant perma banning offence.
If it's untrue, it's just another example of Fairy's bizarre and rather unpleasant attitude which he hides behind what he calls his "twisted sense of humour".
If it's true then he's just outed Taglet in public without her consent- an absolutely disgusting thing to do, whatever you think of her. :hand: :slap:


As much as I dislike Taglet, I agree it's disgusting (and in some cases dangerous) to out anyone.

Fairyprincess has always given me a massive case of the creeps though so him doing this does not surprise me.

Good, hopefully, they have been told to relax a little. How can you have politics and showbiz like it is and any discussion on gender stifled?

I'm inclined to agree. If it's true it's quite a sly thing to do, pretend that an authoritative voice backs you up. Most of the posts on the other side of the discussion are talking about logic and common sense. Making out that it's transphobic is just nonsense.


This whole trans debate has become bizarre on a Kafka-esque level.

Not least because the community has been infiltrated by so many mentally disturbed individuals who chimp out at the slightest challenge to their made up world view. I suspect many of them are fetishists jumping on the band wagon.

If some woman beats the shit out of me because men are bastards, that's not going to make me feel any better because it happens more from men to women, just like a woman being beaten because women are gold digging whores will feel no better given the justification.

Abusing an innocent person because other people is a shit thing to do and should be condemned.

Forget the yes but..... arguments.


It can't be applied equally though, so no, we can't. It's not about who's doing it, it's about the effect it has and damage it causes to society as a whole.


Either can be violent but the harm done by Male violence is far greater.




It's not a numbers game though. Any one being demeaned, derided or abused solely because of their gender is wrong. If we're clear on that that will help repair the damage.

Men have traditionally held the power but as women become more empowered it's important not to make the same mistakes in reverse. They're human beings and as such they deserve the right to be treated as equals but also let it be recognised that as human beings they re liable to the same flaws and biases as their male counterparts.



You’re deluded if you think the reverse will ever happen. Men will never experience what women have been through, in terms of sexism.


Like that would be a good thing if it did? That would solve the problem?

Get back to me when men are as physically victimised by women, as women are by men in countries like Honduras and India. Then we’ll play the “numbers game”.


Get back to me when you can accept it as wrong, not justified because of what happens in Honduras.

Hi guys

Please note that transphobia and being disrespectful to people on and off this forum is not tolerated on Digital Spy. The way others identify, especially celebrities you don't know, doesn't hurt you, but denying other peoples identity can really hurt them.


But terf, CIS whore, sluts etc etc etc isn't hurtful and so are allowed

Honestly, where do they get these admin :hand:


Hi guys

Please note that stating facts and pointing out reasonable fallacies in this argument is not tolerated on Digital Spy. The way others identify, especially celebrities that are unlikely to read these forums, doesn't hurt you, but denying that people can 'feel' like the opposite sex inside can really hurt them.


I still haven't heard, in all this time that this particular subject has been plodding on, exactly how a person can feel like the opposite sex inside. I've never even heard how exactly a person can feel like the sex they are inside. As Lolly put it:

I don't think anyone knows exactly what it is to be a man or a woman as we are all so very different.
I don't feel like anything. I just feel like me


Taglet has to be a mod ,it's got Taglet written all over it. I bet the furry lot like James2001 are watching all this closely. They'll demand to be identified as foxes and dogs because that's what they "feel" like inside and it really hurts them if people don't acknowledge it.
