Since old thread won't bump anymore, maybe we should make a new one where we mock Tumblrinas for their incredibly regressive, totalitarian methods in "fighting the oppression" (while failing to see the irony)?

There are certainly some genuinely good people fighting for social justice causes– possibly significantly more than there are people of the SJW archetype. But, as always, the SJWs aren't fighting for social justice. They're drama-hungry and they're simply looking for reasons to be outraged, and thus be the center of attention. They care only about the fight, and care nothing for a goal or endgame. Business as usual.

Look, I'm sorry, Jake, but you need to give this up. The screeching dangerhair is not the tiny minority somehow managing to shout down the reasonable millions out there like you want it to be. The muhsoggyknee howlers are absolutely, unequivocably the standard, and the reasonable, intelligent ones are the exception that prove the rule.

Aye, I concur. They've already brought the comic industry back to the cusps of dying (though that's also their own fault for not testing the waters first before they radically change their big seller superheroes), and the hollywood industry still panders to them (until sales are affected and they go back to their old racist ways). One could argue they even affected new outlets and their constant narrative twisting because they relied more on the internet to uncover the truth for them instead of searching for it on their own, and thus have their own educated opinion instead of others.
Not to get too /mur/ up in here, but in their blundering way to combat prejudice, the Social Justice Whiners were intensifying it on the white male demographic, whom they deemed as the source of prejudice instead of realizing it's a universal concept that applies even to them (and thus can only be left irrelevant instead of eliminated). Indeed, they managed to increase racial tensions by constantly focusing on it, stifle criticism and humor, and just outright promote a sense of ignorance that made democracy seem like it's original incarnation so far into the future. We did not get the democracy most of us desired when we got Obama in 8 years ago because of those shits and their delusional bullshit.

I was wondering when will someone call him out on his naivette.
Jake, I admire your insistence that these SJWs aren't all bad, but it's a sad fact that a great number of them are
. They don't believe the stuff they preach, they don't stand for the rights of the marginalized minorities or women. They just use it all as an excuse to harass and demean others. The fact they're so quick to turn not only against each other, but against those they claim to be fighting for
(and use the same slurs they demean others for using them) should already be enough of a proof.

>>1937>The fact they're so quick to turn not only against each other, but against those they claim to be fighting for
This. Another recent brouhaha was that Emma Watson, useless and pointless feminist that she is now, decided to promote her latest no-one-cares-about-it movie by doing a braless photoshoot. Feminists ate her alive
about it, because she was "promoting objectification of women", "validating male gaze", you name it.
And, instead of protesting about being attacked by her own, or realizing that the movement she's decided to kowtow to is full of it and doesn't believe in letting her make her own choices? She's instead blaming it on, you guessed it, misogyny… trying to claim that the people attacking her are attempting to use her tits to invalidate her powerful feminist statements.

I've met a fuckton of the nice, level-headed ones. Now, I freely admit that I may be wrong, but I don't think the crazy ones are the majority. I think they use sockpuppets and numerous alt accounts and addresses to make themselves look that way. But, and I repeat, this is only my opinion, and I could be wrong.
> They don't believe the stuff they preach, they don't stand for the rights of the marginalized minorities or women. They just use it all as an excuse to harass and demean others.

Top me, that isn't proof of their numbers, but it IS proof that they're indeed more interested in fighting than winning. This type of people are completely wasting time and effort that could be used doing something productive. I think they are, first and foremost, selfish– the fight they're in is entirely about making them feel some combination of satisfaction, smugness, and self-importance. It's ridiculously stupid.
As said, I could be wrong, but when I see the way so many of them use the same manner of speaking (typing), I can't help but think they're a relatively small group that's using the anonymity of the internet to artificially inflate their apparent numbers. It comes across as akin to the old stories about a handful of people defending a fort, who rig up automated catapults in all the windows so there seems to be a whole army holding off the attackers.
> Feminists ate her alive about it, because she was "promoting objectification of women", "validating male gaze", you name it
Like I said. Fucking ridiculous. Quit screwing around and do something useful for the world. Women, at least in the Western world, are no longer oppressed– certainly not systematically. Nor are minorities. Figure it out, cut the bullshit, realize the actual problems in the world, and use all that energy and zeal on THEM, and things might change for the better.

P.S. (and I suppose slightly off-topic) Is it really too much to ask for the major groups who turn every YouTube comment section and Reddit thread into an argument to shut the fuck up for a bit?
I'm referring specifically to people who despise or adore any politician, or any specific and entire group or type of people, take every opportunity to say so, and think anyone who disagrees is a waste of a human.
That's why I keep coming here. I and some others here disagree, sometimes vehemently, but the conversation is nearly always civil and doesn't just devolve into bashing and name-calling.

I think nearly all of the people we see on the internet who are the SJW type are like this. I think some are immature, some are trolls, some are idiots, some are crazy, some are dead serious and want to feel like they're "fighting the good fight," and others are some combination of the above.
I think real people exist who are fighting for causes we could term "social justice." They aren't loud, they aren't crazy, and they know what is real and what's Tumblrina "there are 643 genders," "all cis white het men are disgusting rapist pigs," "sexism, racism and every other ism are still systemic" bullshit. We don't see them, we don't hear about them, and they don't tell everybody.
Every one we see and hear about on the internet is some combo of the five categories listed above, and they deserve to be laughed about.

>Apparently wearing hoop earrings is a racist thing to do, according to a group of latino women who spray painted "White girls, take off your hoops" on a college campus wall in California.

Yet another case of reverse racism…and these dumb bitches don't even know hoop earrings do not originate strictly from latino or black culture, but have been around for much longer time.

Indeed, they became very popular in the 'groovy' era. This really is one of those occasions when fashion sense is largely irrelevant, I mean if they want to go that route then black people should probably stop dressing up casually like something out of a 20th century sitcom. To which most of them will scoff and go on their lives as normal, which is the correct answer for this crap.

Long story short; a little girl has a Japanese themed birthday party, some tumblrinas throw a shitfit and call it racist and cultural appropriation. Actual Japanese person steps in and BTFOs the complainers.
She also makes a really damn good point; most people complaining about mixing/exchange of cultures as being racist/offensive tend to be the real racists, despite their SJW badge they so proudly show off.

And Tumblr responded by running her off the site with death threats and racist, sexist and transphobic remarks.

Because people are going to make useful generalizations even if it makes you angry. For example, not everyone that voted Trump are racist but anyone that still supports him after he ends DACA (which requires a spotless record) are racists.

SJW isn't a synonym for "left", nor does being against these hypocritical raging morons magically make you a homophobic, woman-hating, Trump-voting puritan Nazi, nor does being a Christian or voting republican mean you're any of those things either. Additionally, you're not superior for not believing in God. Now take off your euphoric trilby, find a better insult to use than childish transphobia and try again, edgelord.

SJWs say shit like that and then turn around and scream at people who believe Rainbow Dash is a lesbian. They were the first to start pointing to Tracer's hairstyle to claim they knew she was a lesbian all along too, yet they lost their shit at people who wondered if Zarya's a lesbian because she's far more butch than Tracer's ever been.

>It's incredible, really, everything they condemn is suddenly perfectly fine when they're the ones doing and saying it.
That's because SJWs firmly believe that, when minorities and SJWs themselves do something, they have every right to it because
they are minorities and people fighting against "duh oppreshn!!" and thus they are exempt from criticism. But when "the majority" or cishet whites do something, then it is a fucking sin they deserve to be lynched for, because they're neither the minorities nor SJWs.
Same goes about complaining: SJWs and minorities have the right to complain about everything under the fucking sun, but whites don't because "they're white, thus privileged by default and have it a whole lot easier in life" (load of bullshit, I know).

Priorities kind of got skewed ever since the democrats started trying to figure out if they themselves are conservative or not.
So when trying to pin negative things on extremists it's less what they really want and more what will cause more provocation. Granted it works both ways with media, but left media has a harder time deciding what they want to tell others because they are bouncing around more buzzwords. The republicans will eat up 'fake news' as an excuse because unlike the majority of the ones being tossed around like darts to a lacross, the circumstances involved had merit to it.

Worst thing about RCDart's stuff? Her art was actually really damn good in the past. Then she went to CalArts and her skills took a spectacular nosedive.
People blame the school for such ridiculous art style, but what really goes on is this:
Like every school, CalArts is a place that teaches you fundamentals about the subject you chose, and once you are taught these fundamentals it's up to you to further develop and evolve. But alot of the people who went there instead stick to these fundamentals like it's some gospel and never develop further from it, or let it affect their previous art skills.

Animation has become kind of a cabal.

IT's creating a loop of people who all went to the same school who believe that only people with that degree can get into the industry could have gone to that school. People are starting to take notice of that nepotism bubble, and it's going to eventually pop.
