I just tweeted the sentence “it’s like an ear-glove for my brain-hands.”
Who let me on the internet after bedtime.
I promised my husbando we’d ring the WInner’s bell at the Night of Writing Dangerously.
But that means I have to write 3,125 words a day to be done on time.
Oh god what have I agreed to
Ever hear the term “SJW”? It means “social justice warrior,” and it refers specifically to people who point out racism or sexism in movies, video games, and other pop culture. Those people are considered worse than other types of critics because instead of just pointing out that a movie has flaws, they’re accusing people who like it of being awful.
Except they’re not, of course. If someone points out that the alternator belt in your car is slipping, they’re not accusing you of being some kind of mustache-twirling, white cat-stroking supervillain for having car problems. They’re not accusing you of anything. They’re talking about your fucking car.
Except that most of the SJW community are actually really horrible people. SJW are to their causes as the Westboro Baptist Church is to Christianity.
They include the groups that want heterosexuality to be a forbidden taboo. Groups who want men to be inferior to women, rather than actual equality. Groups who would like to disallow anyone who looks white from having anything in life, and vomit in their mouths when a white person is successful. Groups who create more racism than they solve. Groups who create more sexism than they solve.
If you criticize anything they say, they send you threats and call you scum. There’s a reason they’re mocked across the internet. They’re not hated, they’re laughed at. They’re considered worse than other types of critics because often they don’t and won’t think about what they claim to believe fully, and refuse to accept any criticism of their argument. They won’t argue with you, they’ll hiss and cry from their corner. Most SJW are children, or adults who can only behave and argue like children.
They’re not going to point out that your alternator belt is slipping by saying something like “your alternator belt is slipping, you might want to fix that.” They’ll say something like “your alternator belt is slipping, but you can’t be bothered to fix it yourself. You’re too good for that. You’ll take it to some shop and underpay some illegal immigrant for it because you’re a fucking privileged cis white het male and you’re scum.”
