I first heard the term "social justice warrior" during the gamer-gate kerfuffle. Even then I had no idea how insane SJWs are. Every time one of these social justice warriors opens its mouth (I'm not going to list the 58 official facebook genders) the sadness I feel for the future of America can't help but be replaced with uncontrolled laughter.
So this thread is intended to become a collection of the most insane, ridicule worthy, hilarious, bull**** that social justice warriors do and say. If you run across something outrageous, post it hear.
So, first up, college can be a scary place:
So when she heard last fall that a student group had organized a debate about campus sexual assault between Jessica Valenti, the founder of feministing.com
, and Wendy McElroy, a libertarian, and that Ms. McElroy was likely to criticize the term “rape culture,” Ms. Byron was alarmed. “Bringing in a speaker like that could serve to invalidate people’s experiences,” she told me. It could be “damaging.”
Ya. Opposing ideas is damaging, but they don't seem to have a problem opposing other people's ideas. So does INGO need a safe space? Or is INGO a safe space?
The safe space, Ms. Byron explained, was intended to give people who might find comments “troubling” or “triggering,” a place to recuperate. The room was equipped with cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets and a video of frolicking puppies, as well as students and staff members trained to deal with trauma. Emma Hall, a junior, rape survivor and “sexual assault peer educator” who helped set up the room and worked in it during the debate, estimates that a couple of dozen people used it. At one point she went to the lecture hall — it was packed — but after a while, she had to return to the safe space. “I was feeling bombarded by a lot of viewpoints that really go against my dearly and closely held beliefs,” Ms. Hall said.No, INGO doesn't have cookies and coloring books, or pillows, or Play-Doh. Maybe mods should create a safe space. Wait--trauma? Hearing opposing views causes trauma. Say what you want about INGO, much as it often gets a little nuts over opposing views, but at least they don't think opposing views are traumatic. Maybe the "safe space" is the hell towards which many people think America is heading.
