Feminist SJW Guide To Free Speech


So let's get this straight:

A scientist wearing a shirt with sexy ladies on them that was created by a female friend of his? That's offensive!

Two Portland white women making and selling burritos based on cooking lessons they took while on vacation in Mexico? That's offensive.

A fan artist making fan art about her favorite shows like Steven Universe, while drawing one of the "bigger" characters a few inches slimmer? That's offensive.

Another fan artists drawing a portrait of the cast of a popular on-line video game with the male characters drawn as female? That's offensive.

Some over-privileged white woman creating "art" that amounts to little more than screaming "f*** white people"? Oh no. That's not offensive. That's not hate speech. That's free speech.

This is why nobody takes feminist SJWs seriously. Everything that's not offensive they consider to be offensive, and everything that's actually offensive they consider to be offensive. In short, these people are regressive and backwards.

Socialists Are A Special Kind Of Stupid


Did you know America had it's own socialist party? It's true. It's called the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), and they recently held a convention in Chicago. And you know the real stupid part? The party has more than 25,000 members in America. Granted, that's only a fraction of a percent of the overall population, but that's still too many socialists.

Seriously, how stupid is it that, when one socialist county is burning to the ground, and another socialist country threatens to nuke us, that there are 25,000 socialists in America who are celebrating the central political ideology of these two countries? Now that's a special kind of stupid!

Examples of Oxymorons


In case you're wondering: yes, "libertarian socialists" do exist, and their arguments tend to go something like this: "Hi! I'm a libertarian socialist. I believe it's wrong to violate the rights of individuals--unless it's their right to property, which is totes not a real thing because potatoes!"

For the record, if you don't know who the "libertarian socialist" in the lower right hand corner is, he's an English bloke on YouTube called Libertarian Socialist Rants. I wouldn't recommend visiting his channel or watching his videos, but I would suggest watching this takedown of him by Shane Killian:


Also, to all the X-Men fans out there: sorry for pointing out the fact that there hasn't been a good X-Men movie. (And also sorry, but Deadpool doesn't count.)

Haters Gonna Hate But This Is Personal


I normally don’t address personal internet drama. Internet wisdom dictates that you should never address haters, that you shouldn’t “feed the trolls.” Usually this is good advice. Usually.

On the one hand, “feeding the trolls” can amount to little more than “adding fuel to the fire” and inspire them and other trolls to continue trolling you. Thus the best strategy—and what has usually been my strategy—is to ignore them until they go away and stop bothering you.

However, on the other hand, this internet “advice” usually amounts to suggesting that the best way to solve a problem is to ignore it. I think most of you can see the problem with that advice. Ignoring a problem does not make it go away. If that were the case, the easiest way to cure cancer would be to ignore it. Sometimes ignoring a problem can make it worse. Much worse!
