    As a 2011 veteran, I've been in a good position to discover the otherwise mysterious patterns of behaviour present in this forum. One I'm now certain of is the "angry rhetoric cycle". There is always a topic that is a main target of negative criticism here, but the two most prominent are without a doubt Islam and feminism. What I've noticed is they both operate on a cycle that lasts approx 2 years- from Islam being the main target to feminism being the main target, ad infinitum. And right now I've noticed feminism is gathering momentum to take the lead once again after anti-Islam rhetoric's long reign (which is peculiar, because the last couple of months have been fraught with Islamic terrorism)
    Anyone else felt this?

    Yeah it's a cycle, you can certainly say that.

    tfw when you try to justify being on tsr far, far longer than is socially acceptable

    I've got plenty to say against feminism so looking forward to the upcoming anti-feminism movement on here
