Krantzstone Item 11:

“To encourage more conscious, self-reflective, sensitive language and behavior is not to tyrannize. To advocate conscientiously constructed codes that address rare and egregious infractions of common decency and civility is not to call for a thought police.”
– Marilyn Edelstein, Ph.D.
Santa Clara University, 1992

To attempt to exact a penalty of being labelled as a misogynist or ignoramus is hardly “encouraging conscious, self-reflective, sensitive language and behavior”. To suggest that being generally supportive of this website is “supporting a misogynistic hate site” is specious since even the source you cite retracted its original opinion and changed it to a more conveniently vague inference.

For those reasons, your quotation is irrelevant.
