Okay, here's what tipped me off. The fact is, people often try to undermine or deny the validity of say, the LGBT movement, or any 3rd wave feminist, by using extreme examples of them at work, case in point the trans age 50 some year old man pretending to be a 6 year old girl, and due to the constant rambling of a certain forumer with a megaman avatar, I've come to realize that Social Justice Warrior seems a lot like a slur by conservative to attack liberal movements. What do you think?


Sorry but the trans man who's pretending to be a six year old girl ain't right in the head.


You misread. They use examples of this to invalidate normal transgender individual, I.E. "being transgender is about as ridiculous as being transpecies." Case in point, that video in the link was posted on an Anti SJW page.


I see. I did misread.

I'll say this, while the word social justice warrior is amusing, if you wanted to actually call a social justice warrior something more precise you could always just use regressive seeing as that is what they are.

I have never actually called anyone an SJW. I have, however, argued with SJWs. They are very annoying and delusional. Maybe certain people should stop using it on everyone, but I think for the most part, it does have its place. It may be as a insult, but that's still a place.

I don't understand why we don't just watch Anime and be happy.. There are so many threads "bashing" people who have ignorance of specific subjects.

Or, it's used to attack anyone who doesn't have a sense of humor, and believes that Internet discussion forums were put on this earth to Fight the Power, Especially the Intolerant Phobic Hetero One.

In coining the term "Social Justice Warrior", picture the image of a political science major going about the streets in Rambo gear, soapboxing the headline issue of the day to everybody at the bus stop....And how everyone quickly gets on the bus the minute one finally shows up.

SJW aren't a slur, they are more like a smear in the underpants of humanity.

Dont cut yourself on your edge there kiddo.

Ill just throw this out there. The majority of feminist critics and criticism that people throw the term "SJW" at dont really reflect alot of the content and views of tumblr. Anitas work for example (which I dont always agree with but I respect) is very different from alot of the stuff that shows up on tumblr (in that its well though out and not a ton of teens bumbling around). In my view most people who freak out about "SJWs" really need to just grow up and be more mature about things. The "feminists SJWs are ruining vidya games" viewpoint is shit I held when I was like 14. Most of the "SJWs" that people like to trot out as the awful standard have there work either hugely misrepresented or are in a very small minority. Seriously people need to get over themselves with this term. Its not a slur its just an overused term by shitheads on the internet. Feminist critiques are really not that big of a deal and gaming/nerd cultures failure to accept them just shows there immaturity.

I highly recommend people actually do some reading into actual feminist publications like the Mary Sue instead of viewing tumblr as the default.

Feminists and the LGBT community are just trying to strive for equality. But of course there will always be bigoted people who don't want that. You would think that in the 21st century people would have evolved a bit more. We wouldn't have homophobes who think being gay is a sign of being possessed by the devil, and all women should be confined to the kitchen and are just there to make babies and pleasure a man's dick. But unfortunately we do.

When it comes to SJW's though, I do really hate the ones who have a thing against anime and manga. They're incredibly misinformed.

And as a result of fighting it, we now have "bigoted" people who think gays talk about nothing but themselves, that they circle the wagons and self-absorbedly try to turn every issue into "theirs" to shut everyone out, and that they whine it's "phobia" whenever people are annoyed and a "conspiracy of silence" when regular people just want to talk about something else for a damn change.

Moral: There is such a thing as fighting too hard, to make up those empty areas in your own life.

Yah. Just as well thought out as that stack of games that she owns to "prove" that she is a gamer even though that stack contains games that she has publicly attacked on multiple occassions.

I never said gay people were talking about nothing but themselves...

You know, you can fight for equality and have a normal life too. It doesn't take up every second of your time on earth.

You can like games and still criticize them. Case and point I love Fallout 2 but I do think the game has some pretty uncomfortable and uncool rape jokes in it. Fallout 3 has a pretty uncomfortable quest were you give a women ant pheronomes to drug a priest into "falling in love with her"(kinda rapey). Skyrim has a quest were who basically shame a women for having multiply sexual partners that has pretty ugly implications. And you know what those are all in my top 5 favorite games of all time. The latter two even helped me through a very bad depression that had me contemplating suicide.

Now that we have that out of the way if you want to discuss the points Anita makes in here videos that im all ears we may agree on alot of things. If your gonna continue down the Anita is a fake gamer road borderline conspiracy road than we have nothing to talk about.
