<blockquote>Basically Fark has one particular mod, of a gender I don't need to mention, who gets upset every time she greenlights another trashy [[index.php?title=Jezebel&action=edit&redlink=1|Jezebel]] link and the Fark regulars (rightly) rip it to shreds. Admittedly, some posters cross the lines of good taste in doing so, but most just point out that Jezebel itself does more to advance misogyny than any forum trolls could ever do.

Fark is a news feed and discussion forum known. It employs a comment filter that rewrites curse words. The website's mascot is a squirrel with large testicles.

Contents

Anti-Misogyny Policy[[[index.php?title=Fark&action=edit&section=1|edit]]]

Policy announcement[[[index.php?title=Fark&action=edit&section=2|edit]]]

On 18 Aug 2014, Fark administrator Drew Curtis announced a new policy against "misogyny," stating that the guidelines had been in development for several months.

Controversy[[[index.php?title=Fark&action=edit&section=3|edit]]]

Slashdot users blamed the change on moderator Genevieve Marie, also known as Genevieve Dempre. From the comments:

Basically Fark has one particular mod, of a gender I don't need to mention, who gets upset every time she greenlights another trashy Jezebel link and the Fark regulars (rightly) rip it to shreds. Admittedly, some posters cross the lines of good taste in doing so, but most just point out that Jezebel itself does more to advance misogyny than any forum trolls could ever do.
I have been a member of Fark since 2001, and watch her epic rise and subsequently taking over the reigns from Drew. She is the same girl who wrote an article for MS Magazine about her being a slut in college and blaming it on the guys, not herself.
Oh, wow. I remember the shitstorm when they announced that she'd been appointed as a moderator. I'm all for diversity in moderation, but a self-acknowledged attention whore is the last person you want "moderating".
What's lower is FARK mods already banning people over on FARK for things being said here and on Reddit.

WireEater ban[[[index.php?title=Fark&action=edit&section=6|edit]]]

On or before 2010, WireEater was banned from Fark for a photoshopping depicting a fictional "Anti-Gay Co." selling a "Gay-GoAwayKit" of a camouflage suit, stuffed deer, and a bow and arrow set for homophobic high school boys to prove they are "MANLY" men and not gay.

Huffington Post discussion[[[index.php?title=Fark&action=edit&section=7|edit]]]
