Careful... I don't think that's the takeaway here. I hardly think it's fair to say that "the left is officially against nofap". It's just one article, and I don't think that's enough to demonstrate some sort of pattern or generalization about an entire facet of the political spectrum. NoFap has been criticized by many different people, and not all of them are left-leaning (or even politically motivated at all). Most of the articles I've seen that criticize NoFap (and similar communities) have nothing to do with politics at all: they're usually either written by people with ties to the porn industry (and, thus, who have a vested interest in criticizing porn addiction support groups like NoFap) or by people who want to boost their own academic / journalistic careers by writing a flashy article about masturbation and porn. The article from the original post is the first one I can remember seeing that was politically motivated, and it's certainly the first one I've ever seen that took a feminist perspective on NoFap. Hell, there are lots of members of this community who are left-leaning. Be careful with your generalizations. You talk about being forced to "take sides" in your comment. Well, aren't you encouraging that type of behavior when you make sweeping generalizations about "the left"? I don't think the idea here is that it's now "okay to quote and post more red pill content". That's not what NoFap is about, and it never has been. As far as I can tell, NoFap doesn't really take a stance on gender-related issues. This community is about supporting people who are struggling with masturbation and porn regardless of what views you hold politically, socially, or philosophically. I'm not saying that discussing gender-related issues shouldn't be allowed in this community. I actually think it's quite important to debate issues surrounding the topic. So, if you're talking about posting "Red Pill" content here for the sake of discussing it and debating it, then I think that's productive and is just fine. However, I want us all to remember that, regardless of the political / social / philosophical views of some users on this forum, this place primarily exists to help people who are struggling with PMO. Just because one author from one article thinks this is a place where Incels, Red Pilled, MGTOW, and other related communities gather to let their misogynistic views fester like mold on bread doesn't mean that we have to adopt that identity, and it doesn't mean that everyone who is "on the left" believes what she does.
