There is a lot of text on the project website and in their whitepaper about creating a "feminist metaverse", but no detail on what they actually plan to do.

The project's "roadmap" is a masterclass in using many words to say nothing at all. One of the steps includes the to-do item "Technological breakthrough".

The whitepaper lists "the systematic disadvantages of women":
1. Inequality in wages due to gender difference
2. Women suffering from pick-up artists (“PUA”) and domestic violence
3. Widespread sexual assaults and violence
4. Women’s human rights and freedom

They have a Medium, where they appear to be using one of those automated services that "rewrites" other articles by replacing words with synonyms.

First post is from their medium, the second is the apparent original—from Time Magazine/Nextadvisor

The project Twitter account seems to specialize in reassuring men that feminism won't inconvenience them in any way.

"Equality includes BOTH genders!"
"Equal rights are not special rights"

@platypus @web3isgreat ironic seeing a dao claiming to implement feminist economics. One of the big lessons on feminist economics that I've learned from adopting the @disco_coop model for Immers Space is to value Care Work, the invisibilized labor that keeps an organization alive and can't be codified into a transactional software contract

@web3isgreat I had a bunch of theories but all of them are equally batshit

@web3isgreat I gotta know, but seems like they never posted a definition

@web3isgreat I'll bet a bazillion quatloos the project is being run by cis men, possibly with one cis female figurehead.

@web3isgreat "now no longer as curious approximately crypto" :super_spin_think:

@web3isgreat Honestly, this sort of language use really frightens me too…

@web3isgreat somehow the fact that this isn't in chronological order is making my jaw clench

@web3isgreat that read like it's written by a tired AI writing service. And the dates are out of order. I esp love the 2021 Q3 parts - it's preparing for making plans. Not actual planning. And "build software environment development"? Do they mean "build software development environment"? And then in 2021Q4 it's suddenly ready, without any actual development...

@web3isgreat Explaining what they plan to do first requires explaining what a "feminist metaverse" is, and, by proxy, explaining what a "metaverse" is. And then how surveillance capitalism is supposed to benefit any subset of humanity not in the capitalist class, let alone women.
