A popular Facebook page dedicated to “Women’s Issues Forum” (WIFI) has been flooded with comments and messages from women who feel like their posts have been misconstrued.
It is now a common complaint among some women that the forum, which started in 2007, has been misused by the likes of Angelina Jolie and Kate Upton to promote their own careers.
The forum is an offshoot of the popular online forum Men’s Rights Activists (MRAs), which is largely dedicated to promoting the views of men.
Women’s Forum Park A woman who said she was a ‘victim’ of the Facebook poststorm about her comments on WIFI told BuzzFeed News that the incident has made her feel ‘sad’ and ‘traumatised’.
“I feel sad and frustrated and scared.
I have no idea what to do now,” she said.
“It’s like a death sentence, you have no rights.”
WIFIC is a Facebook group for women who use the site to discuss their experiences of domestic violence, domestic violence and rape, as well as issues relating to their personal lives.
On Tuesday, WIFIC moderator Amanda O’Brien announced that the site had been taken down and the page had been suspended after “a small number of members” were found to be posting “offensive, threatening or harassing” posts.
A representative for the group, which is also known as “the Women’s Forum”, declined to comment to BuzzFeed News.
‘We have been left in the dark’It is a common criticism of WIFIs that the posts are being “scooped” by a small number members who “troll” the page for political gain, said Sarah, a former WIFIAN member.
One member, Sarah, who asked that her real name not be used to protect her identity, said she felt betrayed by her WIFi friends.
Sarah, who had been posting on the WIFIA Facebook page since January 2016, said the posts were “misconstrued and misconstrued” to highlight how the women’s issues page was dominated by “the right wing” and that she felt “disgusted” and “frightened” by her experience.
She said that when she posted her comments about the “misrepresentation” of her views on WILI, she received “many threatening messages” and had been told she had “lost her job”.
“We have no control over the posts that are posted on this site,” she told BuzzFeed.
Despite the fact that women who post comments on the forum are not legally required to follow the rules governing the site, Sarah said she believed that the admins of the site were aware of her comments.
As a result, Sarah added, “I have been forced to take my posts down, and I have been asked by WIFIE not to post anything more on this forum again.”
Sarah said that she was “shocked” by the recent posts about her posts on Wifi.
“[I] have never been called a liar, or accused of a crime, I never have,” she added.
Wifi has since taken down several of the comments that had been posted about Sarah’s comments, including a post from a woman who wrote: “The only person that should be prosecuted for this is the person that posted it.”
Sarah, a mother of three, has also received threatening messages.
I am a victim of domestic abuse and I am ashamed of myself for not talking about it and not coming forward,” she wrote on WifI.
Several days later, a post by a man, identified only as ‘James’, who claimed that Sarah was an “anti-woman bigot” and described her as a “mocking feminist”.
James said that Sarah had used her posts to promote her own career and that he was “proud” of the post.
Sarah said the comments she received about her views were “ridiculous” and she was encouraged to write them down.”
“This is a place that is supposed to be open and free, and it’s all about promoting women’s careers, it’s about empowering women, it is about empowering men, it doesn’t make sense.”‘”
I was also encouraged to tell the admins that I had been called out on the posts.”
“This is a place that is supposed to be open and free, and it’s all about promoting women’s careers, it’s about empowering women, it is about empowering men, it doesn’t make sense.”‘
It’s all a lie’Sarah said she had not yet spoken to WIFIP about her experience but said that her experience had been “shameful” and the forum had been shut down by Facebook.
“They’ve shut it down,” she continued.
“They’ve just done it because they can.”
