Fark Bans Mysogyny

Soon to spread I hope!


Per the announcement, the ban includes:

- Rape jokes

- Calling women as a group "whores" or "sluts" or similar demeaning terminology

- Jokes suggesting that a woman who suffered a crime was somehow asking for it



"The vast majority of Farkers are fine with the changes as it turns out," he told The Huffington Post in an email. "Additionally there's been a groundswell of people who stopped reading Fark over the years due to misogyny who have returned as a result, and all in all it's been a great experience. I feel like a complete jackass for waiting so long to do this, and so will any other site that decides to make the same choice."


Curtis told HuffPost that users are also pushing for the rules to apply to hate speech towards men.

"The most common question we've received is 'what about misandry,'" he told HuffPost. "It's not really a stretch to extend the rules that as well so we'll probably be doing that in a bit... I don't think we've ever had a misandry complaint."
