Is Blind "full of sexist turds"?

Sep 13 44 Comments

I talked to my coworker about Blind and she said "that app is full of sexist turds" and that she couldn't say she was female if she wanted serious responses (not sure how that would come up anyway). I haven't used it much but I haven't seen any sexism. It seems the userbase values TC above gender, race, air, etc. What do you think?

      Isn't that true for everyone? Even if you take laxatives, there's always turds left inside you.

    There are some. All anon forums do that. But we aren't about that as a topic, you're right

      I would agree with this. Anonymity often brings out the worst in all of us.

      True. I still see it less here than other anon forums I've been on though so I was surprised. If the users have a bone to pick it seems to be about something else besides women.

      Yes, I wonder if the fact that Blind requires employment verification keeps out some of the total crazies lol

    The userbase values FAANG TC above all else. Every other kind of TC is scoffed at, no matter how high. So they're elitist, not sexist.

      Good point. After I posted I was thinking maybe it's actually about prestige, not TC.

    Blind is a haven for sexist, racist, myopic asshats. Of course it's not everyone, but it's absolutely enough to be toxic.

    I have definitely had interactions here that made me feel singled out/disrespected based on my gender, yes. I’ve also had those in real life, though, and I don’t overall think the world is full of sexist turds lol. As another comment mentions, I think the anonymity here can make people bolder in expressing their not-so-PC views

    Remind her that blind is a cross section of her workplace without filters. And ask her if she thinks her workplace is full of sexist turds.

      What would you say to her if she were to say yes to that? I’m curious

    There aren’t any more sexists here than real life. You might choose to tolerate the haters more because here there are more honest answers thanks to the protection of anonymity.

    If you ask a serious question, dont add fuel to any fires, more often than not you will get good answers. There are some jokers here who will reply back with jokes about females that have been beaten to death and think they are funny. That might have given your friend the impression.

    Yeah ... we shallow, we proud.
    We discriminate against none - we can make the best feel awful in no time flat.
