ahh forgive my ignorane as I am not "hip" on internet jargon. what exactly is SJW?


Social justice warrior.

I honestly believe that we are being raised to be victims. Even at my work, all the harassment training and discipline(if you harass someone), like it's got to the point now where some people take a joke really personally and take it as harassment. Of course in some cases it is, if you let the person know and they dont stop or if they cross the line and if you're ganged up on and etc.
But i mean now even if your boss tells you off it could be considered harassment. Even if you did a crap job or made a mistake.
Eh i dunno.

Enablement. Usually in childhood, people learn that they can control others by behaving in such a way, and continue to utilize the manipulation tactics well into adulthood. This behavior is commonly demonstrated by toddlers, and we see what happens when those same children are not corrected. As early as the 90's, we've had reports of helicopter parenting, such as parents notoriously bullying small kids at easter egg competitions to make their own kids "win." It is no coincidence that the rise in "professional victims" coincide with over-protective and doormat parents. Of course, those parents learn from their parents' habits. We have several generation's worth of bad parenting tactics trickling down.

SNIP:

their afraid of loosing their privilege I guess we should pity them

I mean it must be hard being the least oppressed people in the history of well people


I am curious as to how your logic progressed to this? Could you site some facts(if its CCN,Politico, FOX, or Infowars your getting ignored) to support your statement? I keep hearing about this 'white privilege" however I am unable to find any. Can you site some references? Not trying to be offensive but usually when people spout off about "white privilege" its because they heard someone else talk about it and bought into it. I will give extra points if you can site reliable content from the last hmmm.. decade? White privilege is a buzz word and at least from what I can tell is inserted any time any non white group has taken offense to something.

On the other hand if we are going to discuss white privelege... how about we discuss the handicaps "whites" get. Affirmative action may be gone however most companies still hire for diversity to attain tax credits, as well as keep a good public reputation. My own company (electrical) is currently looking to hire 2 minorities to maintain their set diversity balance. This means the people dont have be qualified, or even know what the job is. If they apply, and can pass a background check $40k+ year to start $65k after 2 years. As only minority groups seem to get this treatment I would call this a privilege. Did anyone stop and consider that as a minority being given preference actually demeans your work ethic? If you were hired under affirmative action just because you were latino, asian, middle eastern ect nobody cares about your accomplishments because you were practically handed the job no? How about Black history month in the US? I don't see Asian history month... how about Latino history month? Again another non white privilege. So as far as I am concerned this privilege everyone seems to talk about either doesn't exist, or they ignore the rest of the privileges everyone else gets.

also can you define least oppressed? I would be interested in discussion millenium of white on white oppression if youd like to. Message/mail would be best so we dont de rail the thread.

lol looked at the link and actual poll. Not sure how they came to those conclusions. I guess you can see what you want to see when it comes to polls like this.

Minoriites have no disadvantage gaining employment at any company I have ever worked at. However my current company will lose a tax credit if they dont employ enough minorities. Admittedly right now the company cant get any applicants minority or otherwise... its a rough time right now for electrical companies

Ya got me there... I have never heard of or seen any literature for either of these "heritage"months. Seems schools/media must not care about them much.

Many people victimize themselves these days in order to garner pity, favors, or any other kind of support. They realize in our current culture of political correctness that they wield some degree of power of influence over others simply by painting themselves as unfortunate victims. It's disgusting and pathetic how much some people exploit others solely because they're think they're special snowflakes or something.

2- Victims of hurricane Harvey

The actual victims are not that fond of the camera as much as the self proclaimed victims :??

How willing are you to help the victims of the 21st century ?? How quickly are you at jumping on the bandwagon whenever someone claiming to be a victim of "this and that" now a day?




You forgot the SJW and Hugh Mungus -- Is that sexual harassment ?

Hugh Mungus (ACTUAL ORIGINAL VIDEO)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeNJFz-WCZs

The Great Hugh Mungus-- The Simpons parody
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb3XJDkniNQ


lawmakers in many states are making laws to put a stop on "drive by lawsuits" by disabled crooks who are trying to get rich quick by extortion

ABC15 uncovers surprise about group sweeping Valley with ADA lawsuits
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D60we_4VZGY

Things like this making it worst for the actual victims when they needed help/assistance,

My company provides customer support/service for various clients from insurance, uscis, bankruptcy, hospitals, medical offices, law, etc.. so I got various calls

- a car backed up into Ms J's car -- but the other driver claimed she rear ended her!! (so unless you have a dash cam...)
- a customer called in about a stolen phone-- claiming insurance
- customer called in about being hospitalized so he can't pay this $8000 credit card bill
- a single mother was raped by a friend inside her own home when her children were sleeping in the next room
- stolen/flood damage cars
- burglaries
- a woman calling about her credit card but can't seem to answer the identity verification questions
etc..


which one you think are true and which one are obvious scams?

scammers claiming to be victims of " fill in the blank here" just make it worst.. It's sad but it's the state we are in. You need a lot of proof to prove you are ACTUALLY a victim of something now a day, all thanks to these scammers, attention seekers out there.

the word is abused (no pun intended) like so many others these days. a victim to me hasn't changed, I might not believe them because I don't really care, there is therapy and a disorder that you must be the center of attention regardless. if they are lying to get attention the other side will deal with them, if it's legit I'm sorry that it happened, but we're all a victim of something. and, no, because you can't handle living in a certain politics pattern, you are not a victim, you're something else, including these other victim things. however rape, murder, domestic violence, child, etc. these are real.

I am in disbelief after watching that hugh mungus video. That womans emotions completely took over and any little bit of rational left inside her went out the window. She harrassed the security guards caused a disruption of business and after all that SHE IS THE VICTIM?
My god....lord help us.

Kids have been taught for decades that when something bad happens, it is always someone else to fault. If that can't be found, it is the fault of a made up mental condition.
