Any idea what it was that triggered the shutdown?

Just theories, nothing confirmed. Put it this way, the 2nd wave voat  mods(kevdude et al) were JIDF plants, the third wave are similar to the third wave of feminism

I'm a third waver. Here's a great quote from Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill about the motivations of the third wave, "BECAUSE in every form of media I see us/myself slapped, decapitated, laughed at, objectified, raped, trivialized, pushed, ignored, stereotyped, kicked, scorned, molested, silenced, invalidated, knifed, shot, choked, and killed. ... BECAUSE a safe space needs to be created for girls where we can open our eyes and reach out to each other without being threatened by this sexist society and our day to day bullshit. ... BECAUSE we girls want to create mediums that speak to US. We are tired of boy band after boy band, boy zine after boy zine, boy punk after boy punk after boy. BECAUSE I am tired of these things happening to me; I'm not a fuck toy. I'm not a punching bag. I'm not a joke."

Rawwwwwwrrrr

Yeah that quote is literally one of the funniest things I've heard in months.

I am curious can you give me one example of a way women are systemically oppressed in America if you want to make the argument in the Middle East or South America then you'll find me much more persuadable but in the Western World there is no such thing as a patriarchy although I would welcome any evidence you actually have to prove otherwise

I'm not sure why you have the position you do but let's talk. First of all, I think about women from everywhere not just America when discussing the role of women.

I grew up in and left a religion that was absolutely partriarchal and the women, who in my eyes were often the ones really holding things together for men and their families, played second fiddle and still do. I'm using my family as an example but I know that this applies to a bigger sphere. My patriarchal father believes and was taught that he has the role of patriarch because it was bestowed to him through God, then Christ and then Melchizedek. His sons, my brothers, also are bestowed with this power (a belief, not reality). This bestowing is not something that can happen for the women and just that has wide ranging consequences for the outcomes of women.

Here's another example: Just this week I heard a man say he was glad to have a son to carry the family name. If that is not patriarchy what is? I think this is often why family, business, educational resources are extended more to male children than to females. The world is changing and I see this less than when I was younger (I'm 50) but it is a huge factor in why my brothers had more opportunity than my sisters and I. It sucks.

Here's how it works out in the work place:
"Science faculty’s subtle gender biases favor male students"
http://www.pnas.org/content/109/41/16474.full

"A broad, nationwide sample of biology, chemistry, and physics professors (n = 127) evaluated the application materials of an undergraduate science student who had ostensibly applied for a science laboratory manager position. All participants received the same materials, which were randomly assigned either the name of a male (n = 63) or a female (n = 64) student; student gender was thus the only variable that differed between conditions. Using previously validated scales, participants rated the student’s competence and hireability, as well as the amount of salary and amount of mentoring they would offer the student. Faculty participants believed that their feedback would be shared with the student they had rated (see Materials and Methods for details).

Student Gender Differences.
The competence, hireability, salary conferral, and mentoring scales were each submitted to a two (student gender; male, female) × two (faculty gender; male, female) between-subjects ANOVA. In each case, the effect of student gender was significant (all P < 0.01), whereas the effect of faculty participant gender and their interaction was not (all P > 0.19). Tests of simple effects (all d > 0.60) indicated that faculty participants viewed the female student as less competent [t(125) = 3.89, P < 0.001] and less hireable [t(125) = 4.22, P < 0.001] than the identical male student (Fig. 1 and Table 1). Faculty participants also offered less career mentoring to the female student than to the male student [t(125) = 3.77, P < 0.001]. The mean starting salary offered the female student, $26,507.94, was significantly lower than that of $30,238.10 to the male student [t(124) = 3.42, P < 0.01] (Fig. 2). These results support hypothesis A."

Another article citing studies:
"The 5 Biases Pushing Women Out of STEM"
https://hbr.org/2015/03/the-5-biases-pushing-women-out-of-stem

"We conducted in-depth interviews with 60 female scientists and surveyed 557 female scientists, both with help from the Association for Women in Science. These studies provide an important picture of how gender bias plays out in everyday workplace interactions. My previous research has shown that there are four major patterns of bias women face at work. This new study emphasizes that women of color experience these to different degrees, and in different ways. Black women also face a fifth type of bias."

I challenge you to do this: Listen while women you know talk and notice how often while presenting males choose to talk over them or past them. It is a surprising, infuriating and common occurence.

Why don't people know who Mileva Marić is?
https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/the-forgotten-life-of-einsteins-first-wife/ "Nobody made it clearer than Albert Einstein himself that they collaborated on special relativity when he wrote to Mileva on 27 March 1901: “How happy and proud I will be when the two of us together will have brought our work on relative motion to a victorious conclusion.”

I could go on...

Oh yea women can't legally walk around topless.

Men changed that shit back when women got the right to vote.

The free the nipple movement is making strides though.

A generation ago women had three choices for careers basically, nurses teachers or secretaries.

There is an income gap.

Women can and do sleep their way into jobs.

Women that don't might have to find employment elseware.

Birth control / hormone therapy is all fucked up and pushed in women as a necessity to be a sexually liberated modern woman... See this is oppression coming from the feminists really .... But the men are ok with it for their own reasons but it's also destroying the family as a foundation.

Materialism, sex, evolution. It's being pushed on all of us men and women really.

I'm not someone with a label or agenda to push here I am just giving examples that I have seen.

The thing that gets me about people like that is that most of the oppression that they are talking about goes on in Hollywood and most of the outspoken feminists have some sort of connection to Hollywood, and if not a direct connection they still take their money. Although, I think the reason that a lot of these actresses are such rabid feminists is because of the abuse they suffered from Hollyweirdos.

Elisa, Elsie are all nicknames for ELizabeth.

From Ελισαβετ (Elisabet), the Greek form of the Hebrew name אֱלִישֶׁבַע ('Elisheva') meaning "my God is an oath" or perhaps "my God is abundance". The Hebrew form appears in the Old Testament where Elisheba is the wife of Aaron, while the Greek form appears in the New Testament where Elizabeth is the mother of John the Baptist.

(I have seen other translations that say ELizabeth means "pledged to God.")

What does Selia mean?

The name Selia is of English origin.

The meaning of Selia is "blind".

AI had an odd little suggestion on Youtube for me today--this video on Daisy Bell. 
That video got me thinking of Daisy Brown, then I wondered how the name "Daisy" related to Crowley...

I found this book on Google that mentioned "The Daisy Chain" by Crowley but I can find no record of any such work. 
https://books.google.com/books?id=_A23t1hGFwUC&pg=PA259&lpg=PA259&dq=how+does+crowley+relate+to+daisy+chain&source=bl&ots=TKdzQx_kRO&sig=YNDfHouGO4qGTBuWAhJyr-0L6gk&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjsrLC2pdHaAhUIG3wKHVwqC9UQ6AEIRTAD#v=onepage&q=how%20does%20crowley%20relate%20to%20daisy%20chain&f=false

Curious rabbit holes...
~~~~~~~~~~~
Daisy Bell was the first computer to sing (1961)
"Daisy Bell" was composed by Harry Dacre in 1892. In 1961, the IBM 7094 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell. Vocals were programmed by John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum and the accompaniment was programmed by Max Mathews. This performance was the inspiration for a similar scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

(I am posting this related video because of course I thought of Darth Vader...)

The Voder: 1939, the worlds first electronic voice synthesizer

The Voder was the worlds first voice electronic synthesizer. In 1939 Homer Dudley working at Bell Telephone Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey began to publicly demonstrate the Voder, the first electronic device that could generate continuous human speech electronically.

The Voder was designed for the 1939 World Fair in New York as a showcase of the advanced work being done at Bell Laboratories.  It was a manually operated system requiring training, ten finger, two foot paddles, a knee leaver and arm switch to generate sounds. The sounds quality actually was better than most voice synthesizers all the way up to the late 1990s.

(and this one because of pizzagate...)

Donald Sherman orders a pizza using a talking computer, Dec 4, 1974
Every year, the researchers, students, and technology users who make up the community of the Michigan State University  Artificial Language Laboratory celebrate the anniversary of the first use of a speech prosthesis in history: the use by a man with a communication disorder to order a pizza over the telephone using a voice synthesizer. This high-tech sociolinguistic experiment was conducted at the Lab on the evening of December 4, 1974. Donald Sherman, who has Moebius Syndrome and had never ordered a pizza over the phone before, used a system designed by John Eulenberg and J. J. Jackson incorporating a Votrax voice synthesizer, a product of the Federal Screw Works Co. of Troy, Michigan. The inventor of the Votrax voice synthesizer was Richard Gagnon from Birmingham, MI.

Something else has crashed the party and is allowing our sub-consious to direct access the net 'as if' it were some sort of akashic record.

I think this world will always have an inter[personal]net[work] represented by a device. Other cycles had collective-soul-weirwoods, or collective-soul-crystals (animated Atlantis), or collective-oversoul-deities (Avatar.)

Our collective-soul devices are divice-ive--ils sont des-vices. A side effect, or a payment? The weirwoods demanded blood; the crystal demanded a sacrifice (itself in-bodied) that was refused and led to stagnation/loss-of-magick; the eywa-oversoul demanded her people sacrifice their home/temple/customs so they would realize her true manifestation and messiah.

"Outsiders" are constantly attempting to pierce through the inter[dimensional]net, we know that much, but we also know any crossover requires someone to be the cross over. Outsiders can see the threads of our inter[dimensional]-web of consciousness... they can maneuver through but cannot necessarily take a hands-on role. Insiders do nothing but play hands-on and interfere with what is theirs, but those on the inside have their views limited in scope. I think any significant manipulation to the system points toward outside scope/perspective being used by inside ability/intent.
