KiwiFarms Went Down. Now Everything is KiwiFarms.


That Sunday, September 3rd, the Washington Post advised the planet so it had been exactly one year since KiwiFarms — the Internet’s many known loathe community, which will keep a destroy rely of transgender persons it has taunted to destruction — was dropped by its machine, Cloudflare. At the time, this is reported as the “end” of KiwiFarms. The death notices were premature.

The virulent and transphobia of the website used to stick out as particularly ugly and lethal. Today, in late 2023, that hate is simply what being on the Net is about.

Consider: Perhaps not two months after Cloudflare dropped KiwiFarms, Twitter was purchased by Elon Musk, who transformed its title to “X” and has used the past week feuding with the
