Pff, like white straight males have opinions, anything to say or do, apart from opressing everyone and raping. Why would you want that in your discussion?

...And then I realised it's not a funny post, because quite a few people said the same thing all over the world and were completely serious.

Yay my country screwed up again! We are still horrendously bad at understanding rights aren't we.

Feminism, Equality, what other terminology shall society fuck with in this era?

The original source is the Dailyfail.

Its mutated into an oppression against straight white men from there with subsequent sites removing the bits about where this applies to the reps allowed to take part in the debates at each workshop. Making it sound like they're kicking out straight white guys at the door. When in actuality this is applying to a workshop's debate reps. IE if you're not disabled, you can't lead the discussion on disability. If you're not gay, you can't lead the discussion on LGBT. If you're not a woman, you can't lead the discussion on women's issue. If you're white, you can't lead the discussion on non-white issues.

Taken all together you can form the clickbait Voltron phrase "Bans straight white males". But there seems to be a fair amount of fine print. -.-




I think it is a bit backwards, especially considering the amount of white males who might study this thing.

I don't want to spook you, but Humanitarianism+ already is a thing, kind of. Kinda works like the good ol' Atheism+.

You really have to admire the left for their relentless commitment to democracy, equality and tolerance . . . oh wait.

Since apparently no one understands what the damn word "Equality" means, here you go!
the quality or state of being equal : the quality or state of having the same rights, social status, etc.
is it really that hard?

Yup since we barely could get anything equal in an unequal world. (or something like that)

wait what? are you pointing out the world is inherently unfair? because this is talking about the irony of a "fairness" group completely missing the point (side note cute pic)
