my honest opinion ?

lay off the sandwiches and start exercising before you get a heart attack from all those cholesterol/fat/glucose you put in your body each day

the least she can do is walk around while holding the dang sign.. at least get some exercise out of it instead of sitting on her ass all the time

I don't think you're really looking to be enlightened, you're looking to have other people confirm your opinion, right? Did you really make this post to hear different opinions or laugh about "social justice warriors"? (Something that everyone on the internet seems be making waaay too big a deal about lately btw)


Im here mainly for enlightenment, But laughs are always a secondary.

i feel their are 3 or 4 main types of are commonly called sjw's or often considered related to them

1. those who have fought or still fight against legitimate issue in society or the world and try and correct it through gaining support or helping gain support for the cause but at the same time not turning into what they are fighting against. i would say martian Luther king jr would fall into this category.

2. those i think are activists with truly good intentions but what they are doing is likely just making things worse despite their good intentions. i suppose some examples are some of the transtrenders who when get right down to it they make the issues facing people with gender dysphoria or whatever a joke or people who are all psychotic which isn't accurate with a lot of them i would say.

3. then their are manipulators who generally join groups such as feminism, lgbt, anti racism groups etc and try and use those groups as a platform to try and further their own financial and political agendas often taking advantage of group 1 and 2 when in truth they likely don't care for the original purpose of the group such as fighting for voting rights or whatever they just want to con some people or twist the group to be their servants. and they often try and make up problems or exaggerated problems that really shouldn't be in a way that usually doesn't get anything done but helps them keep their power but not using it in a useful or helpful manor. as well as turning the group into the sort of group that it was originally fighting against becoming sexist, racist etc. 3rd wave feminists often are this sort it seems.

4. while quite similar to group 3 they often prefer to resort to violence and intimidation to try and get their ends or just use their cause as a excuse to create chaos. a good amount of antifa probably would be a perfect example of this grouping.

Personally, i am called an SJW whenever i look at things through a feminist (or even a common sense) perspective on plenty of things in society i find down right retarded such as the glass ceiling (pay gap), expected gender roles for each sex, no somehow meaning "yes", the smash or pass challenge, etc.

However, i can see why the word "feminists" and "SJW" are looked down upon for 3 reason.
1) People who claim to know what feminists are or talk about being an SJW simply dont know what either of them are and bestow upon themselves that moniker after reading 3 sentences off of a wiki or fan page.

2) Everyone gets so god damn offensive/defensive when they see something they dont agree with, even ignoring the context of an opinion or fact.

3) People who are wrong when talking down about women, weather it was a joke or something worse, and are called out on it (i.e. Azneyes smash or pass video on fellow youtubers that was published on international women's day) they instantly label them SJW and then spead a bad name for them.

If pay gap was a thing then why would companies who are profit driven not just hire woman and fire all men working for them? It's illegal in pretty much all developed counties (except those in the middle east) to have a pay gap between employees. Gender roles exist for a reason. No has never meant yes and if someone claims otherwise then their retarded and/or the problem lies with them and nothing else.

I was about to chide whomever resurrected the SJW thread than realized it was actually a new thread.

Now I am just sad.

SJWs aren't as prominent in the media anymore, as far as I know. They were immensely talked about during and after the US's recent presidential election. That's really only because of their ostentatious displays, as they wanted to attract attention. They're definitely extreme and intense. They certainly felt compelled to express their discomfort with society, and the perceived injustices in American society. I never liked how many of them seemed to take pride in pushing their ideals on other people, and basically shaming people by accusations of racism, sexism, homophobia, islamophobia, etc. Social justice is really entirely subjective and as is the concept of morality. They're both truly just blanket terms. I feel they've done more damage than anything else. However, at this moment in time, I just don't care anymore. They're irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.
I suppose I'll continue by stating that I don't bear a grudge against SJWs. They coined the term themselves, and they saw themselves as revolutionaries via a keyboard. On the internet, they had a voice and could speak up against societal injustices. Although they were perceived injustices, but they had some credibility nonetheless. They also ended up being hazardous to liberals everywhere, and it hurt the credibility of the democratic party in many people's eyes. Honestly, they became the butt of many jokes in American media. I mean, that's my opinion at least.

Whatever you are using the words social justice warriors seem to be to be those that recognize others have already worked much harder to push their current garbage agenda, which is why there is a country preaching freedom with slavery, like America, that has channeled all slave mentality into capitalism, jobs, media, prisons, and school... or repressed masses for short.

This is the correct way to go about it; but you must be careful, there is strength in numbers and there's a whole lot of idiots out there.

Is it wrong that I picked a girl up using the exact line the person in the picture is soldiering against? I got my sammich... and I'm still dating her.

Some people need to work on their sense of humor.

Is this section of CR nothing but a ton of shitposts/trollbait packed with people who enjoy diving headfirst into the mess?

I have to admit that the paygap has been slightly decreasing but the statistics still show that there still is a pay gap in the US (athough is now just cents), also gender role to me only seem to restrict each sex to specific roles in society, and glad someone sees eye to eye with me on the matter of no meaning no

Pretty much. Its been like this since the beginnings of the presidential campaign season. Prior to that there was only one or two threads that embarrassed humanity as a whole at any given time.
