We have gone from being proactively (and debatably) moderately safe to retroactively fearful and probably more unsafe.
If you want a 100% guaranteed safe space, you're not going to find it. Not in the streets, not in your home.. nowhere.
Raging about feminism and SJW's isn't going to help anyone. In fact, it clouds issues, discourages dialogue and both creates and indulges bias.
Yes, I am a feminist. I adhere to the traditional, actual and accurate definitions of the word. I don't let loudmouth feminazis dictate to me the
definitions of words or alter their concepts. Just the same as I don't "think all men are the same". If you do, you are doing precisely what they do.
Indulge bias. Be smarter (I shouldn't have to say this, particularly to those intelligent enough to use a dictionary..)
feminism: the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.
Feminism is actually needed, along with social justice, equality, equalism, childrens rights.. etc.. There are issues in this world that need
addressing. Don't permit the screaming fools silence those actually trying to make a difference for the benefit of all. You are not being proactive,
you are actually causing problems.
Now, back to it. I can liken this to the situation with terrorism.
Many, if not most people refuse to change their lives to account for terrorism because they feel that it would be giving in to the terrorists.
"Safe spaces" are the same. To create a guaranteed safe space, you need to ban everybody
from it. Whatever demographic you are in, I can
promise that somewhere, somehow, someone in that demographic intentionally hurt someone else. They may have even acted in the name of that
This is the risk we take. If you want to be 100% safe, don't go out. Hide under your blanket and suck your thumb. Don't victimise anyone else in the
name of your personal fear or biases. Or you can live your life, take calculated risks and use your cognitive abilities instead of acting like a
People are altering their lives because someone, somewhere, hurt someone. They are attacking entire demographics because an individual hurt someone.
If you do that, you are victimising that demographic. This goes both ways. Excluding people based on their demographic, is excluding good people
because someone else, hurt someone.
If a feminist did something you don't like, don't blame all of us. If a male something you don't like, don't blame all of them.
If the neighbors child does something wrong, do you tell your own off? No.
Here's a thought that might make a lot of you uncomfortable.. Many of you are victimising those trying to help, feminists for example. Me, for
example. Do you really think I want to stand up and make a difference where it matters when vocal fools label me as a horrible person because of the
actions of others?
I have stood up against feminazis and toxic mra's alike. I have fought to protect children. I have never once blamed an entire demographic for
anything. I judge individuals on how they act, I don't label you or them, based on the actions of other people.
If you label people in such a manner.. you're as bad as the toxic mra's and feminazis. In fact, you are playing to their agenda. If you really want
something to do to be proactive about this.. Don't listen to them. Ignore them. Don't share their content, don't give them the time of day.
I am sick of hearing this biased crap from people. Smarten up. We are headed for a really ugly situation if you don't.
