Offense Taking is Immature

I’m not sure I understand exactly what our obligation to “not give offense” is when everyone is hair-trigger offended all the time.  But the rest is interesting.

“Being offended is a sign of immaturity because it’s an unwillingness to acknowledge and live in the truth”

“To choose to be offended is to choose to be a victim”

The Chinese understand SJWs

A Chinese insult comes with an almost perfect definition of what an SJW is:

Although the emphasis varies, baizuo is used generally to describe those who “only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”.

Convergence Kills (Businesses)

Barbie doll sales fall by 15% after a ‘curvy’ version is introduced along with others featuring different skin tones

She was given a more ‘curvy’ figure for the first time in an effort to make her more realistic to young girls.

But it seems Barbie’s image overhaul has failed to prove a hit – with sales tumbling by 15 per cent.

Despite an initial rise when the change was introduced last year, US makers Mattel said revenues dipped in the first three months of the year to £574million.

The toy giant brought in a more diverse range to counter criticism that the doll set an unrealistic body image for girls.

Those horrible awful people who are racist and fat-shaming monsters aren’t buying toys!  Don’t they see this is Current Year?  They need to get with the program.  Well, we don’t need their money anyhow.

That does seem to be, however, what some companies are saying.  We don’t need their money.  Don’t want to get those bigot cooties on you y’know.  This attitude is showing up in online advertising.

Now Barbie’s sales have been in a slump for years.  But taking the SJW pandering path clearly hasn’t helped.  Other companies are way ahead of them (all of the publishing industry for example) and they haven’t shown massive profits either.  The advertising companies who are now getting the vapors at the idea that a bigot somewhere, somehow is looking at their advertisements are going to strangle small, online content creators, but in doing so, they’ll be strangling themselves.

Further Fur

Fox Crimson over at Qu Qu Media provides a more serious look into what alt-furry is:

 

One thing still remains very clear and that is just how many people, even with the furry community at large, fail to grasp the sheer irony involved with altfurry as it began primarily as a reactionary movement whose purpose was to mock the extreme far left elements that had cropped up in the fandom in recent years. SJW’s, BLM sympathizers, punks, anarcho-communists and the like began whining louder than ever before following Trump’s victory on November 9th 2016. In the wake of Trump’s inauguration and the Berkley riots earlier this year, these fanatical leftists began demanding concessions that spilled over into the furry community. The more virulent among them began using passive-aggressive tactics to insult and shun anyone who didn’t adhere to their worldview.

What he describes sounds very similar to GamerGate in that many alt-furry hold fairly liberal views but are pushed into a position of fighting back because the totalitarian thought police won’t leave them alone.  SJW convergence is everywhere and needs to be fought everywhere.  You might think furries are degenerate and barking mad, but strange times call for strange allies.

White peeps just won’t stop being racist

Mommy blogger turned alt right poster girl: Mormon mom-of-six causes outrage by urging her thousands of followers to back her ‘white baby challenge’ and have children to stop ‘black ghetto culture’

Racist alt right blogger, who only goes by the name Ayla online, claims her Mormon religion is under attack by ‘black ghetto culture’

The mother-of-six issued a ‘white baby challenge’ to encourage white families to have as many as or more children as her

And that’s all you need to read of the article to see where it’s going.  The first word is “racist.”  This couldn’t possibly be a hit piece.  Wife with a Purpose says white people should have babies and Mormons shouldn’t be pushing multiculturalism.  Daily Mail says OMG Mormonism has racists!  Awful bad!  I say it’s nice to know that Mormons aren’t all cucked.

Racism nowadays really means nothing more than white people are evil.  People of every other color are told told that their existence makes them wonderful, their cultures should be spread and celebrated.  White people are all trash, their history is violence and oppression, and they ought to all die.  Of course the cute thing is, if any white person complains that this is what they’re being told, they’re immediately dogpiled by people saying “no one says that!”  Y’know like this:

As an African-American woman, it is getting old to keep hearing the psychotic rantings of some white people who have somehow gotten it un their minds that the white race is somehow under attack and that there is somr type of conspiracy among people of color to “outbreed” the white race. Well last time I checked the white race still owned and controlled most of the world’s wealth. So what is holding them back from making little white babies if they feel so threatened? I dont understand this way of thinking. As I sit here writing this post, white men are flying in from all over the planet to take advantage of California’s billion-dollar marijuana industry. I dont know of any black persons being “invited” to the party and none are making money in Silicon Valley, Tesla or Uber. The few who work there have to put up with a sh-tload of racism. And by the way “black ghetto culture” is a microcosm of white American culture which derives from the lowest classes of European culture.

>White people are psychotic for thinking they’re under attack
>White people are awful bad racists
>Attack
>Attack
>Attack

Black ghetto culture is…. white?!  Oh, man, if that’s not proof that white people are evil, I don’t know what is.

When everyone is a racist, then no one will be

Gotta start with those kids early!  A writer over at the Carlos Slim’s blog wonders: Are We Raising Racists?

The consequences are serious. When we don’t talk honestly with white children about racism, they become more likely to disbelieve or discount their peers when they report experiencing racism. “But we’re all equal” becomes a rote response that actually blocks white children from recognizing or taking seriously racism when they see it or hear about it. This is at best.

I note that only white children need to be spoken to about racism.  Minorities are never racist, children, remember that.

At worst, the consequences are akin to what happens when you breathe in polluted air. Not realizing the pollution is there doesn’t mean it doesn’t affect you. White children are exposed to racism daily. If we parents don’t point it out, show how it works and teach why it is false, over time our children are more likely to accept racist messages at face value. When they see racial inequality — when the only doctors or teachers they see are white, or fewer kids in accelerated classes are black, for example — they won’t blame racism. Instead, they’ll blame people of color for somehow falling short.

Minorities also never fall short–which is why we’ve had to scrap literacy tests for teachers in order to get more minority teachers.

We have better models. Parents of black and Latino children have long made thoughtful choices about when and how to engage in difficult and nuanced discussions about difference. Studies show that such parents are two to five times more likely than whites to teach their children explicitly about race from very young ages to counter negative social messages and build a strong sense of identity.

Which group is more like to have a chip on their shoulder about race?  Might it possibly be because yo mama told you that pinky’s out to get you and pointed at every possible instance and example of this?

After telling her daughter that George Washington was a horrible person, the writer concludes:

It’s always risky to tell other people how to raise their children, and I don’t want to imply that I’m some kind of perfect parent. On top of that, our children and families are all different and there are many distinct ways to have conversations about race with our children. But however we talk about it, we need to talk about racism now more than ever.

Liberals have this bizarre black and white sort of thinking.  We can’t say that George Washington as a good person because he owned slaves and therefore was a bad person. We can’t tell our children that “we’re all equal” because if we’re equal then we must be equal in every way possible thus nothing bad happens to other people that doesn’t happen to us.  Sorry, but George Washington, just like every person ever, had good and bad qualities.  Also he freed all his slaves.  (I  know, I know, it was after his death so he didn’t tear his new nation apart and start the Civil War early.  What a jerk.)  I can be equal to you, and I can also have problems that you don’t have.  Are you ignoring my Nixon-only problem, you vile bigot?

My parents raised me to be a not-racist.  They failed because the culture around me kept saying over and over “you’re a white person; white people are racist; why aren’t you noticing how racist you are, you racist?”  When you try to shove something down someone’s throat, the gag reflex kicks in.  The only thing that’s creating more racists, is YOU who won’t shut up about racism.
