i’ll respond to this seriously:
i really don’t know why anyone who calls themselves a social justice warrior or pushes the SJW agenda doesn’t see the similarity between their own militant beliefs that everyone be separated into little groups versus a nazi who believes minorities are an inferior “species” of their own.
nazis and white nationalists and sjw’s are all the same cut of the same shitty loaf of bread and i suppose what bugs me most about sjws in particular is that they adamantly pretend that they are anything BUT hateful, mean, bullying, racist, spiteful bigots. atleast nazis and white nationalists own up to their hate and ignorance, and they are widely recognized as a moronic group of assholes that nobody should give the time of day to.
SJWs? people unfortunately give them an audience, and in some cases, are sucked into believing that anything that is CIS-GENDER, WHITE, MALE is the devil and should be fucking stoned to death. its moronic. the day that “CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE” came into the SJW repertoire of stupid shit to scream at anyone they had a difference of opinion on was the day the internet got a little more backwards, a little more unbearable.What she’s angry about is actually the fanaticism of Tumblr. Has anyone here read Eric Hoffer’s book “The True Believer”? It is a terrific book and one that I cannot more highly recommend if you’re at all interested in things like group-think, mass hysteria or the foundation of religious following. The cusp of the book (and I’m selling this at a discount) is that all mass movements - be they social, political, religious or otherwise - are all interchangeable. Proper nouns may change but the roles and the acts are always the same thing: there is always a group or body of dissatisfied people who march to the beat of a specific drum and over-identify with the cause. This can be the Republicanism, Nazism, Socialism, Calvinism, Discordianism, Protestantism, - pretty much anything ending in “ism” except “jism”. (A phonetic pun, don’t take it seriously)I’m going to risk my two cents on this not because I particularly agree with my friend’s nutcase statement that SJW are at all like Nazis (which is an absurd falsehood) but hopefully making clear what she’s getting at since she’s much more eloquent in face to face conversation.Her frustration with SJW/Tumblr is one I share, in that, though there are some well-intentioned ideas in the mix (sex-positivity, racial and ethical identification, etc), none of them are rooted in experience. That is to say: though you (indefinite pronoun) may have been singled out for your sexuality or gender-bending or whatever (which is awful), you also cannot speak for anyone else but you, even though you may be of that group identity.
That is to say: you speak for yourself and not for any identifiable group. You may identify with that group, but you do not speak for every gay male or every latino or every long-haired hippie alive. To do so only shows your ego and how hard-set it is on making the “group” about you and not you part of a group.
Does that make sense? Moving on…
But that since the cause is always interchangeable, it will always attract the same TYPE of person, and often a person who is into ITEM A will later on be really into ITEM B. For the internet, this is becoming obvious to the point of transparency: we all see the people who are REALLY ANNOYING ABOUT FIREFLY that are now REALLY ANNOYING ABOUT SHERLOCK. Which is to say the people that are really annoying about CIS stuff are going to be just as annoying about something else later on. You as a person are more interested in identifying with things outside your person to conform to a group, instead of pushing away and being yourself by yourself. I realize this is not easy, as people as animals demand social groupings to feel “safe” as a survival mechanism, but the lengths in which people over-identify with everything consumable or trendy now has me wishing Zarathustra would come down to Pied Cow and tell everyone on the internet to cram it up their ass (myself included sometimes).(Tangent: I will go one step further: the concept of SJW is not known off of Tumblr. I am not sure if this is because Tumblr has an age-specific group as its whole(?) or what but the fact of the matter is that SJW as a thing or even as a term are not known anywhere else on the internet except to be made fun of. I find that as a sort of “right church, wrong pew” logic: if this is such a big deal to a group of people, why is it I had to come to Tumblr to hear a bunch of people agree with each other? “Preaching to the choir” doesn’t spread the word, but it does whip up the Congregation into a frenzy, which reinforces an already insulated and self-aware system of belief and alienates everything else to the point where it discards all verisimilitude completely.)So what I’m getting at with eloquence is what my friend sucks at getting across: all forms of fanaticism, even if they’re right to believe in detail, are inherently wrong by nature. Yes, you shouldn’t be a bigot - but you shouldn’t also be chasing bigots with a fucking baseball bat or crazy group-think reposts on Tumblr. Because, right or wrong, everything you’re doing just perpetuates a cycle - just like Hoffer said. No one has the right to rule over anyone else, which is the irony of the SJW movement: “Don’t tread on me” as a motto only works if it also applies to everyone (even the snake on the flag).I think the best (and most rock-and-roll) way to make this clear is to listen to the song “Bloody Revolution” by the british punk band Crass. There may be no better reasoning against all SJW activities than that one song.And as I close, I’m reminded of this line by Russian writer Lev Kopelev: “Totalitarian regimes can capture, torture and kill as many writers, scientists and artists as they like, but they can’t change a culture to their liking.”
And, right or wrong, I cannot think of a better description than that for Tumblr.
reblogging this because my friend says it nicer
Thus reblogged Zarathustra. Pretty accurate, what pissed Nietzsche off about democracy, academia and organised religion of his time (as well as anti-semites and proto-nazis too funnily enough) was that nobody would own up to the beliefs being theirs specifically. The beliefs were of their group, their party, their field of study, their church. All more concerned that they believed the same things as others than the value of what they believed, lots of effort and fervour but no true conviction of their own. ‘Herd morality’.
Wanna be an SJW? Then do it, but decide for yourself what you think is right and wrong, decide upon a conception of Justice that is truly yours and if it happens to coincide with others, so be it. Take heed of the caustic wit and insight of that most existentially dissatisfied of linguistics professors lest you repeat the mistakes he so decried.

The western obsession with anime is FUCKING HIDEOUS and anime fans need to FUCKING DIE
This shit is blatant cultural appropriation. Fucking fat weeaboo neckbeard loser fucks are RUINING Japan’s culture with their “OMG WAIFU” shit, and it fucking triggers my inner direwolf.
Also, have you ever noticed that there are NO POCS, DISABLED, OR TRANS* PEOPLE IN ANIME? It’s because of the WHITE MALE SCUM who fucking CONTROL THE WORLD and NOBODY STOPS THEM BECAUSE IT’S “CRAZY” FOR PEOPLE TO THINK THAT. FUCKING BLIND SHEEPLE ARE LETTING WHITE MEN TORTURE INNOCENT JAPONESE WITH THEIR SCUMMY IDEAS AND PREJUDICE.
so if you support anime, you support racism :)
Everyone in Anime is Japanese, you potato. Even anime set in europe about europeans/set in ancient Babylon & Mesopotamia about ancient Babylonians & Mesopotamians has everyone look and act vaguely Japanese. Every culture does it, cultures see things through the lens of that which they understand. Also, perhaps Japanese people are capable of having their own opinions and prejudices? It’s not like white people are uniquely ‘advanced’ enough to develop racism, sexism or other discriminatory opinions.
Hell, Japan has its own home-grown Nazi knockoffs like every other country, who espouse the past glories of their country whilst glossing over things like the rape of Nanking. Pretty eurocentric/[whatever the term is for not looking beyond the USA’s borders because amerocentric sounds stupid] to think it’s the fault of anime fans in the west when the stuff’s not even aimed at them and they have to wait years for dubs and western releases because that shit’s not aimed at them as an audience. Most anime is intended for the domestic Japanese audience and as such is tailored towards their tastes and views, the reason it’s got such a following in western ‘geek culture’ is because even in the era of on-demand internet TV it’s still pretty obscure and is different to other media because it’s made for a different culture and worldview with different artistic and cultural traditions.
That said any anime that runs for 9 million episodes and has entire seasons of filler is as much trash as any show from any other source. Also ‘innocent Japonese’? Really? Because Japan as a nation is so innocent and has never been exposed to outside influence or the harsh realities of life and international relations with their near neighbours? Some opinions are unpopular because they’re controversial, others are unpopular because they’re nonsensical. Let the bloody Weeaboos have their damn anime.
How do vaccines cause autism? See exactly what the science says!
Hey, click the link. It’s a short, but important, read.
I learned so much from that.
This is important.This is important to me if you read this, give it a try.
This is crucial to read.
Yes this is very educational.
My university wifi blocks whatever this site is supposed to be as malicious content, so I assume that’s precisely the point
No your university doesn’t believe in free speech. Also the IT guy probably doesn’t buy the following argument as to how vaccines cause autism:
There is absolutely a double standard there, especially when it comes to talking about charity.
The main “argument” (if you can even call it that) made by these people in response to the fact that this fan base has raised tens of thousands of dollars for children’s hospitals, breast cancer research, etc. is “Donations don’t erase what the fan base does”. Now, especially given that the fan base doesn’t do anything that other fan bases haven’t already been doing for decades, this is a ridiculous statement from the beginning.
However, add onto that the fact that the people making these claims do a whole lot of nothing, and have the sheer audacity to be self-righteous about the nothing that they “accomplish”. These people put themselves above everyone else on a moral pedestal, because they think their blog posts are “helping” anyone. They go about putting on airs, thinking themselves to be white knights of “social justice”, while simultaneously failing to help a single human being other than themselves. Then, they have the unmitigated gall to undermine the very significant amount of real charity done by anyone else? Are they fucking serious??
Sorry, but no - that’s not how it works. You can’t pretend to do good, while actually doing jack shit, and then try to negate the good done by others, simply because you, personally, cannot cope with the idea of people enjoying a goddamn cartoon, regardless of the alleged “target demographic”. That is one gigantic, steaming load of bullshit.
We’re told that our charity work “doesn’t count” by SJWs as well. What I’ve taken away from that is “your chairty work doesn’t count so long as I don’t like you and your doing it makes me look bad by comparison” and / or “your charity work doesn’t undo the fact that you said a thing I don’t like.” I think that helping a transwoman get enough money to buy a Greyhound ticket somewhere safe is considerably more important than our having said a thing a SJW doesn’t like, but apparently they their hurt feelings outweigh this. Given how much they post about their hurt feelings but don’t post links to actual causes this hardly surprises me. Let us not forget that they also often have paypal buttons so we can pay them for this gift.
The last two paragraphs of this post are especially accurate.
They go about putting on airs, thinking themselves to be white knights of “social justice”, while simultaneously failing to help a single human being other than themselves.
