Being a Social Justice Warrior

Just a little break from the seriousness of being serious.
He had me laughing from beginning to end.
It's what happens...

But please don't go further if you want to get upset at this...

But you're welcome that I'm out to vigilantly protect the world from everybody but me.
As long as my keyboard is in front of me, I can say anything to anyone without consequence."

Fighting for social justice can be a noble endeavor. Identity politics & cancel culture are divisive bullshit.

Identity politics & cancel culture will not solve the problems of gun violence, fossil fuels or solve our healthcare issues.
They do however divide us further, making it more difficult to work together to solve the problems.

Honestly I probably agree more than I disagree. I just find the dunking on "Social Justice Warriors" humour pretty tired and tedious.

I can respect that. The dunking and owning on BOTH sides is beyond tiresome and getting us nowhere.

It is surprisingly refreshing to go back to a simpler time to poke fun at others using old fashion terms in light-hearted ways.

.

It is shameful to see how this has deteriorated starting with "Alternative facts" about the size of an audience "Period", and how this has only got worse from there. All the way down to the second Presidential debate being separate virtual townhalls on competing TV stations at the same time.

Fuck Yes, I'm A Social Justice Warrior

https://www.youtube.com/w...Kx13jcs5pE

by Jonathan Mann

http://jonathanmann.net

A C# F#m
You say social justice warrior
E D
With vitriol and disdain
F#m As if that is a bad thing
D You want things to remain
C# Just the way they are
But fuck yes, I'm a social justice warrior
I'll take that label proudly
Hands up I'll sing it loudly
You can spit and snarl but you'll just be
A sad pathetic man
D Little boy throwing a tantrum
E Little boy doesn't want change
A Little boy in his internet bubble
F#m C#
Never felt nothin but impotent rage
D oooooooo
C# oooooooo
We need social justice warriors
We need a social justice wizard
A social justice paladin
We'll go out hunting assholes
For the experience points
Every time you threaten one of us
You only make us stronger
We absorb your anger
And turn it into justice
Little boy thinks he's
Han Solo
Little boy's just a storm trooper
Little boy's got a lot of opinions
And internet friends who all concur
You think you're in the minority
But I think you're a terrorist
When you dox and call it justice
When someone else's business
Becomes your personal hate quest
When you're making death threats
When you're making rape threats
C I'm just saying fuck yes
C# F#m I'm a social justice warrior
E C Bah da bah bah da FUCK

The Ferocious Religious Faith of the Campus Social-Justice Warrior
By David French

November 23, 2015 10:24 PM
.
https://www.nationalrevie...-warriors/

he campus culture war is a religious war, a so-far largely peaceful counterpart to the violent purges and revolutions of jihad. One faith has been expunged, relegated to the margins of the academy, and now another fills the vacuum. Out with the Christianity that spawned American higher education, in with a ferocious new faith — a social-justice progressivism unrestrained by humility and consumed with righteous zeal.
.
Contemporary Americans — educated in the kind of revisionist history that dominates our educational system from top to bottom — forget that higher education was initially a thoroughly Christian enterprise, in keeping with the spirit of a thoroughly Christian people. By some accounts, up to 106 of the first 108 American colleges were Christian, and even as late as the Civil War, Christian institutions were by far dominant in both numbers and enrollment. Christian thinkers understood the power of higher education, not only its vital ability to transmit knowledge but also its role in building character, in molding the next generation of national and religious leaders.
.
As higher education secularized — sometimes in conscious imitation of German universities — it faced a challenge. What transcendent purpose can replace the clear purpose and spirit of explicitly Christian education? The answer — at least initially — was the marketplace of ideas, a place where "academic freedom" served as both means and ends. Scholars could be free to study, inquire, and challenge, to pursue truth no matter whom it offended.

But freedom is messy. People make poor choices, the rough and tumble of the marketplace can yield bad outcomes, and entire institutions can lurch into error, captured by morally bankrupt intellectual fashions. Unless there is an underlying dedication to freedom of inquiry as the purpose of the university — including a tolerance for mistakes — it is all too easy for ideologues to see freedom as the means to a specific end. Freedom is useful to put the right people in power. After that, it's a threat...

I'm sorry your colleges are so below par.

You're even linking to National Review articles from 2015. 2015! FFS. This all played out on social media, and the ACTUAL media years ago!



No one on here fits your Social Justice Warrior profile, you're making fun of shadows. If you want to complain about "Marxism" spreading in colleges then I suggest that you start by reading some actual Marx.

Yes you are(as in?I Beg Your Pardon?) . Is this constant reaction from you to me, because I called you 'love'? some yrs ago, and you lashed out at me?

.

yeah, it's too personal. He totally attacked me and it wasn't about him, and you have no problem with that.
The post I was talking about with jawaan was a general conversation. And you didn't need to step in. When someone replies with 'you're you're you're' it's making it personal. It isn't all that. Don't go looking to be offended... (old southern proverb 'Don't come into my kitchen, if you can't stand the heat')

I said in my opening post "But please don't go further if you want to get upset at this..." and I'llbejumpedup. this thread was to be more lighthearted since everyone is so angry tense and triggered. Are people happy anymore, do people smile, laugh...

I'm gruntled

you don't even know anything about what I posted and why I replied

you never post in P&R but out of ALL the threads, you post in this one to be offended and point out a 'tactic' If jaawwnn in a different thread asks about the college examples, and then I post one here, there is no reason for anyone being triggered, gaslighted, offended, microaggressed, it wasn't directed at him you or anyone stalking around to be upset at something today.

It's like vultures skulking around a post or thread of someone they don't like or who triggers them so they can get triggered and say 'this is just another reason why...'

How the Term 'Social Justice Warrior' Became an Insult

The term social justice warrior is governed by connotations.

Monday, August 13, 2018
.
Abigail Herbst

Culture Social Justice Language

Virtually everyone has heard of the term social justice warrior by now. The term has become quite popular the past few years—so big in fact, that the Oxford Dictionary added it to their dictionary in 2015. Most people by now know that when someone is accused of being a social justice warrior, it is probably not a compliment.

But people who have not heard of social justice warriors may be a bit mystified by this insult. The name itself—social justice warrior—seems to refer to people who fight on behalf of society's downtrodden. How can calling someone a social justice warrior be an insult?
.
The answer to this question has a lot to do with connotation—the ideas or feelings attached to a word. For example, compare the difference between calling a building a house and a home. House and home may be defined the same way, but they have different connotations. A house brings to mind a building where you spend your days. A home brings to mind a place of warmth, laughter, and family.

The term social justice warrior is governed by connotations as well. According to the Oxford Dictionary, a social justice warrior is a derogatory term for "A person who expresses or promotes socially progressive views."

Know Your Meme gives us a better idea of the nature of these negative connotations. Used derogatively, a social justice warrior is:

a pejorative label applied to bloggers, activists and commentators who are prone to engage in lengthy and hostile debates against others on a range of issues concerning social injustice, identity politics and political correctness. In contrast to the social justice blogosphere at large, the stereotype of a social justice warrior is distinguished by the use of overzealous and self-righteous rhetorics [sic], as well as appealing to emotions over logic and reason.

In other words, calling someone a social justice warrior implies that the accuser thinks the other person is an unreasonable, hostile, and self-interested internet user with a progressive agenda.

But this was not always the case. A decade ago, calling someone a social justice warrior was merely a description, and in some cases, even a compliment...
