No, no, we haven't. Even if we had, what possible point is there in shouting down all discussion of gender in tech, of demanding Slashdot ban discussions of it?
Nobody's shouting anything down here. Some people are tired of the subject (perhaps largely because there's never any adult discussion, only agenda-pushing and resistance to it), hence not wanting these articles any more. Personally I'm not in that group.
And something tells me that the very fact you'd use the words "toxic masculinity" as something that apparently I (who has never used that term) are using the shutdown debate means you've heard some third hand version of what it means, but have actually no idea what it means.
I know the academic concept. And I know the surface definition. And I know there's a lot of equivocation between the two, what Scott Alexander calls the "motte-and-bailey" technique. Basically the term will be used derisively to attack men, and then when called on it, the feminist will retreat to the academic concept (even though it didn't make sense in context). The same goes for many of those other terms.
To tell the truth, a lot of the jargon used by academic feminists, from TM to privilege and even to "sexism" (which is used in a slightly different way to how most of us use it) is confusing, awkward, and frequently likely to be misinterpreted.
And there's a reason for that. The academic meanings are a cover. At least for internet feminists. The terms are used to mean exactly what they appear to mean, and when people cry foul, there's a retreat to the "academic" meanings to try to make it look like there's merely misunderstanding.
Do you realize what /r/KIA is doing to your brain? It's fucking you up man. It's not just making you look like a misogynist dick who gets literally everything wrong about the "other side", but it's actually moving you closer to being one.
I said "if people insist on arguing against your point of view you call them horrible misogynists and claim they personally are part of the problem", and you couldn't resist proving my point, could you?
No, Slashdot's approach is preventing any discussion from occurring at all. Almost every post that's modded up here is Off Topic. There is virtually no discussion of the issues raised by the program described. Viewing at -1? Not an option, because that's flooded with more crap.
Objecting to the program's sexism is off-topic? I don't think so. And since I browse at -1, I know that's an option. Nothing about Slashdot's system prevents discussion.
