A response to the issue/article is what I meant, not the people you're angry at for various reasons. Beamer is one of two people on my permanent ignore list and will never come off but JD is pretty level headed and you just disagree on this. There's really no need for "does being a SJW get you laid" type crap, that's some childish stuff.
That was a tongue firmly in cheek comment by me to break up the previously phony seriousness going on in here. Actually, living and working in the Yale portion of New Haven, one of the most liberal spots in the whole country, I see this kind of crap all the time.
There's only two people that deserve to be globally ignored, Beamer and Cutter. It's fitting because they are both on opposite ends of the idiot spectrum.
As for the article I don't disagree with any of it. Most of what they wrote sounds less like a problem for women than part of a larger problem of just plain horrible unfiltered bigots with internet access. Where's the discussion about the anti-Semitic stuff sweeping social media?
You can construct fantasies about the personal lives of people who disagree with you all you want, but you just succeed in making yourself looking small.
It seems like a safe bet given your behavior in this thread that, even if the community tried to discuss something like anti-semitism you'd just accuse those who would disagree with you as being inauthentic anyway and then avoid discussion. Like now, you'll hope the characterization of those people you disagree with which you created in your head, can do the work for you.
Luckily humans can handle more than one thing at a time so people can care about something like this AND anti-semitism.
After all, you made up the reason of those who disagree with you of only wanting to make you feel bad, and you say people who discuss racism can do so as well, so why would we expect any different answers from you beyond the poo flinging you brought to this thread.
In my experience Blue seems willing to accept articles to share, if you want to introduce the discussion, why not submit something to him?
