The problem is with SJWs, you can say what they're saying but if you don't say it in their way they'll try to make you out like you're some bigot or some shit. An example of this is that I had once said that someone being bullied can use that experience to build on themselves as a person and better themselves from it. Unfortunately I had Irked my college "mates" by saying that and they proceeded to call me cancerous and block me on all social media. Which isn't really an issue right?

The problem started therein when they decided to go around the college telling everyone I was a cancerous cyber bully, and even got a few people to dislike me. They're only evidence of me being a 'cyber bully' was me saying a girl looked like Kermit the Frog and that was more than enough for them to rip me apart like a roast turkey.

They're a plague that should've been culled before it hit the mainstream, yet instead it's being encouraged as we're pushed into an intellectual dark age by colleges and universities and their stupid safe spaces.

I'll be honest, as someone who's spent the last 4 years at uni and is planning on spending another 4, I've never had any sort of problem with this. I don't doubt that these sort of people do exist, and I imagine they probably are more common at universities than in the real world, but I can't help but feel this is being over exaggerated by the media. Maybe I'm just moving in the wrong (right) circles? I'd like to think that people in science are generally fairly level headed. I'd imagine it probably also depends heavily on the institution though

I'm in Xerses boat. I've never encountered these people.
That said there is also the fact that, despite what we might all think and feel (hanging around with like minded folks, right?) the issues of racism, sexism, and other phobias remain all too common. It wasn't long ago that a report was issued on the pay disparity between men and women in the UK by the Institute of Fiscal Studies. It highlighted two theories: women don't ask for as many due to not want to be seen as being pushy (since refuted by an Austrailian study suggesting they ask as much but recieve less than men), and secondly that taking time off to be a mother significantly hampers progress along pay scales and later desirability for employment.
As folks like me wonder why I still need all this diversity training I'm painfully reminded as Polish immigrants get murdered for being Polish.
That said I was formerly in the Police and can vouch from my own experience that bigotted, dispicable people readily engage in horrific acts against their fellow humans out of some misplaced sense of being better.
You want to stop these groups? Stop the problems they represent.
Also remember that shit like that just doesn't work in a professional adult working environment.

You see, i'm an art based student, so my uni is a hotbed of this sort of thing. Unis are at various stage of Infection. Some are either really bad, kinda bad, Not that bad or haven't been infected yet.

Another thing i've noted. They practice selective ignorance and contradictory beliefs. For example:


  • Feed the world! (But GMOs are evil.)
  • Fuck Christianity! (except bhuddism, islam, wicca... You especially can't say anthing bad about islam)
  • I believe in science! (But I also believe in Astrology)
  • Empower women! (Hijabs and Burkas are fine because it's a muslim thing.)
  • Fuck the corporate pigs! (Everyone chain-smokes branded cigarettes)
  • Safe Spaces where all people can feel safe! (As long as they're not male cis white pieces of living trash, I'll fucking stab the next one I see.)
  • Freedom of speech! (But you can't say certain words or pronouns that offend people.)
  • I find that offensive! (You fucking misogynsitic piece of human filth.)

Probably left out some.

We have some real scumbags in england, and I hate how they're being stirred up by recent events.
