Okay, I went back and read and I'm going to come off as biased because on_a_hill
is on my flist, but I'd like to think I would have responded in the same way.
You point out in your comment that this isn't a debate community, but the problem is not with on_a_hill
, the OP made a post asking if people thought leaving a 1 year old at home alone was okay. The post was essentially asking for debate and really belonged in booju_mooju
It seems like you kicked her out because she said she wasn't a feminist. A lot of people identify with feminist issues and shy from calling themsleves feminists. She didn't say that she thinks feminism is about punishing men or being better than them, she said that since she is not pro-choice, she doesn't identify as a feminist. Considering that I and others of us get so damn pissy about people calling themselves "pro-life feminists" the fact that she supports many feminist issues and refrains from IDing as feminist is respectful, IMO.
The term "feminist" is so loaded for so many people. I don't agree with removing her, and especially citing the "no debtate" clause, when nearly every comment was some form of debtate. Rightfully, the OP who started the post and everyone who answered her question in a way that disagreed should be deleted.
If being pro-choice is a pre-req for being in the community, then I guess it was an okay removal, as long as the rules say so. She didn't argue about choice at all, so if being pro-choice isn't a pre-req, then I don't think it should have even entered the fray.
