it doesnt explicitly mention safe spaces does it - i was thinking that might trigger the reactionaries

If it applies to the whole internet already, i think this place would score well in comparison to the rest

like so:
If Mumsnet’s women’s rights forum is popular because it responds to the experience of being stuck at home without support or community, it’s done so in a way that leaves Mumsnetters in a political cul-de-sac. The community isolates its members in a bubble of transphobic thought that leaves them free to develop their bigotries without needing to encounter the human beings affected by them. It also inculcates members with a tragically narrow idea of feminism, one that rejects other people fighting for gender liberation. And finally, it puts followers at odds with the broader left, which has been fighting for a world without gender oppression, as well as for benefits Mumsnetters say they care about, such as free child care and well-funded health care.

i'd like to invite Lux Magazine to give this place an audit, i hope we are less toxic than mumsnet at least
