Anyone's not interested in the whole SJW/anti-SJW thing?

    I used to be once, but now I'm no longer interested in it, just the same old drama being played again and again, oponents rehearsing their talking points. Well, I never have much emotional investment to begin with. Whatever happens, honest doesn't affect my life in any significant way. Now my Youtube channel is full of puppies/kittens, ballet, German videos recommendations.

    I'm not a fucking SJW. But I guess I am, since I don't like it when people bash people who are SJW.

    How the fuck are you gonna be LGBT, and not stand up for social injustice?

    Why do you hate people who are SJW. There is a lot of injustice and racism and homophobia. Now more than fucking ever sadly.

    Ugh fuck.

    Never was it said that flowey hates SJWs, they just said that they are sick of the political extremes. Calm down, Suomi

    I believe in social justice, but I hate the SJW's on tumblr because they go way too far.

    I don't waste energy on it either. I avoid that kind of thing completely nowadays...I only use Tumblr for fandom posts.

    I don't give a shit, and I think most people in real life feel the same way (correct me if I'm wrong, or is it an american thing?) I always saw it as one of those Internet things.

    Never been around the whole SJW thing online. I think social justice is great if you're getting out there and making a change in our world. If you're only debating or arguing with people online, then it's a waste of energy and becomes an echo chamber.

    Social justice and being good to each other isnt bad in itself but the majority of SJWs I've ran into will start fights where there wasn't a fight at previously and didn't need to be a fight because things were already good beforehand. They may do it with good intentions but just because you may have good intentions, that doesn't mean you're exempt and innocent from doing way more harm than good.

    Too stressful.

    And in the way of politics, I think a balance of social justice and economic efficiency is possible.

    I tried to be open minded towards it, but I really dislike how deep the manipulation and string-pulling goes with SJW type stuff. Plus most of them don't realize they are being used as chess pieces in games of power struggles and always think they are acting independently and are "thinking for themselves."

    What I mean is, who decides what the current social justice issue of the week is that everyone suddenly supports? How does everyone suddenly get bored with one issue and move onto another in a short time frame over and over again? Sometimes it's race, sometimes it's feminism, sometimes it's LGBT stuff etc. but the main focus of it never stays in one place long enough to actually accomplish anything.

    It just gets thrown back and forth between whichever topic those with power want it to be at the moment for their own personal benefit. A minority Senator is up for re-election? Let's talk about racial injustice non-stop for a month and listen to him tell people how bad it is and how he will fix it. But wait, now that he won, screw racial injustice we need to instead focus on women's rights because some female leader is trying to get famous too and suddenly needs support. It just continues like that forever bouncing between topics and doing nothing at all to improve any of them.

    I don't care about them. I was just making a broad statement.

    I never said anybody hated SJW.

    I'm just saying SJW are people which in my perspective have my support. Get this, I'm not even an SJW, I'm just me.
