No, SJWs don't really believe in what they purport to support, and they invariably make the world a worse place for everyone, including the groups on behalf of which they claim to so advocate. They are just people addicted to self-righteous outrage.

This guy kicked an ass which badly needed kicking, and thus made the world a better place. Please don't apply that term to such a person.

Yeah, we rock that way too.

I remember watching a gay pride parade in Ottawa about ten years ago, and some old, anti-gay twunt was waving around a sign to that effect, and everyone just pointed and laughed at her until she went away. It was awesome.

You've got people out there yelling things not simply to express an opinion as freedom of speech implies, but to disrupt businesses and intimidate people who don't agree with their line of thinking. And will never stop until they silence and scare off others. That isn't protected speech.

There is a difference between a person who advocates for a cause and makes progress, and a person who purports to advocate for a cause, yet demonstrably makes the matter worse. The former, I call a social-justice advocate, the latter, a social-justice warrior. That the right-wing has tried - rather successfully - to redefine "SJW" as a term referring to anyone who gives a sh*t about the issues of any person not of the former's tribe is unfortunate, but I'm not about to let the useful term go so easily.

Here, I'll give you an excellent example of a right-wing SJW group:

Anti-abortionists, AKA forced-birthers.

Oh, yeah, they call themselves "pro-lifers", but everything they do actively makes things worse for children, for mothers, and for society. They're out there everyday, screaming, with red, vein-popping foreheads, "murderers!" at women entering Planned Parenthood clinics. Would that change anyone's mind about having an abortion? No, of course not, but that isn't why they do it; they do it because it makes them feel noble and righteous, especially in the witness of their peer group.

You know, I guess it could be argued that both these bigots and BLM engage in terrorism, if you take it as a neutral term that simply means tactics used by the weaker party in a political struggle that aim to create change by causing discomfort in their opponent group.

Or, you know, you could just be using it in the modern sense to paint anyone you don't like as dangerous criminals.

Really? How are you proving there is no overlap? I find it highly unlikely that there isn't any overlap between the protesters and the looters especially when there are BLM people on camera saying they support the looters because thanks to racism poor black people can't ever get their hands on $300 shoes and that isn't fair. Unless those people don't speak for all the protesters? If that's the case one has to wonder exactly what percentage of protesters are the legit protesters since all the violence and theft and arson apparently isn't the work of protesters.

Not a good look.

The original poster and I simply differ on the definition of "Social Justice". The term originated in the Catholic churches of South America, and was related to economic matters, which have nothing to do with the anti-gay asshole in TFA. If only the creator of a term can forever define it, then we are both wrong. If anyone can redefine the term, then we are both right.

In any case, we're obviously on the same side here.

Why do you let the right wing redefine your language? I know my dad considers his fellow Civil Rights Movement protestors SJWs. I'm not surrendering that term because the right is upset over some Instagram users. When Limbaugh and Hannity and Jones and Beck are using it as a perjorative, it means they are afraid.

No, SJWs don't really believe in what they purport to support, and they invariably make the world a worse place for everyone, including the groups on behalf of which they claim to so advocate. They are just people addicted to self-righteous outrage.

This guy kicked an ass which badly needed kicking, and thus made the world a better place. Please don't apply that term to such a person.

Oh look, a No True Scotsman and a straw man in one post.

Yeah I've had SJW thrown at me for what I've said supporting people and causes that were adjudged "not me or mine".

I'll wear it with honor, I'll appropriate your insult.

Two things:

That the right-wing has tried to appropriate and repurpose the term is unfortunate. You are not an SJW, based on everything I've known you to post.

The poster to whom you replied also accused me of using a straw man. That's just wrong. A straw man is a deliberate misrepresentation of another's argument. I agreed with the content of his post, but only objected to the definition he was using for "SJW". I did not misrepresent his assertions in any way.

Why do you let the right wing redefine your language? I know my dad considers his fellow Civil Rights Movement protestors SJWs. I'm not surrendering that term because the right is upset over some Instagram users. When Limbaugh and Hannity and Jones and Beck are using it as a perjorative, it means they are afraid. And that is a good thing.


I am doing the exact opposite: I am not allowing them to repurpose or steal a word.

The racists, and gay-hater, and neo-Nazis can all kiss the fattest part of my ass.

I'm a professional translator, and the efforts of authoritarians to abuse and mangle language piss me off more than you could know.

Hero tag appropriate for people that warded off a bully and unprovoked attacker and broke his leg.

He Didn't kick anyone's ass.
He got his ass kicked trying to suppress others right to speech.

Ragin' Asian: Also, good thing this was in Canada. In the US, Morisette would have had to make the mental calculation between being a decent human being or being saddled with huge medical debt.


In the US you would have had to have a huge debate about whether a white man attacking a black man exercising his free speech is the real hate crime.

For clarification purposes, does it piss you off more or less than the mere existence of Arthur Dent, and do you see the expanding use of babelfish as an effective tool against the focused and manipulative rhetorical abuses of tyrants?
