Things I have learned from the social justice movement:

I'm anti-women because I disagree about the "wage gap."

I'm anti-women because I dislike new age feminists.

I'm a fat shamer because I think that people should take care of their body.

I'm a fat shamer because I congratulate people on their weight loss.

I'm racist because I think we should have protected borders.

I'm racist because I believe that all lives matter.

I'm a racist, anti-women, fat shaming bastard because I am a white male. (With an admittedly rockin body)


Thank god for the internet. Otherwise I would have never known any of this. We should make badges.

My point is (yes there's a point) by treating me, and others like me, as the enemy, the movement for "social justice" will not garner support. In fact it will do just the opposite.

The victim card will expire soon enough.

Accurate.

And if they had any brains at all they would realize they are ostracizing and targeting people and doing exactly what they accuse others of doing

But when you're a brain dead "activist" pissed off about your liberal arts degree , that thought doesn't cross their minds

I knew I'd get at least one comment like that


I'm not claiming victimization. I'm responsible for my life. Just wish others could understand that.

Sincere question, is that actually a giant problem where anyone is from?

And they think you're a white cis heterosexual male I imagine.

Just sounds like two groups of people endlessly stereotyping one another.

Not crying.

Just pointing out labels that have been applied to me based on my appearance and beliefs.

Got a problem?

It isn't. My daily social interactions are mostly cordial.

Something happens when someone gets a keyboard in front of them though..

yes social justice warriors are just as guilty of straw-man stereotypes as everyone else. Oh the horror, a few ignorant bad apples stereotype white males as racist backwards hicks... It's almost as bad as those people who stereotype feminism and social justice movements as white male hating liberal arts morons who drank too much koolaid... It's like the dumb@@ses who don't understand that black lives matter never meant that all lives don't matter are just as stupid as the dumb@@ses who think that wearing a rebel flag automatically makes you a racist.

I love how dumb@@ses in both groups wave flags to show how naive, simple minded, and dumb they are.

These are complex issues and no one who whitewashes one side or the other is mentally fit to understand the complexity of these issues. der der.. derp.. one side right, other side wrong (scratches balls)

The repeated use of the number 69 in his username is a sexual microaggression.

And ironically, those that accuse others of being offended, are often perpetually offended themselves!


It's sort of interesting to see how certain people, and certain groups, seem to get some sort of persecution complex from a few Tumblr ''feminists''. Topics and statements such as these aren't new, but have been around for years. I'm not a great fan of Third Wave feminism for several reasons, so there's that, but I can't feel sorry for some people who sometimes hear that it's rude to randomly pester people about their (assumed) state of health and therefore suddenly feel oppressed. Maybe it's because of long, former privilege that some people don't understand what it's like to hear not-100%-nice things about their demographic. It's a shame that there isn't much sane, actual criticism of the more irrational/ridiculous aspects of feminism (and most notably SJW), and it's hard to not get lumped in with the new victim complex groups.

I wonder why you even bother to pay attention to these people you are criticizing. Why you bother to point out their faults.
You say they do this and do that and if so, I say so what. Yet you delve into their psyches and post a thread lampooning these people who find fault with others in general. And then you turn around and find fault with people in general.

So yeah, we understand that a number of these people go overboard in their righteous condemnations. Got it.
Now, care to talk about your own righteous condemnation?
