Oh shit, it’s time to make everybody mad again. Like period rage, I’m back to address something that may or may not really upset a few people, but I feel like it needs to be said because I am sure I am not the only one who is tired of it. Given that this is #TeamRJ ‘s last chance to make an impression for the #BATTLEROYALE, I figure it’s good to go out with a bang.
So grab your tampons, stress balls, tube sock and whatever else you need to keep calm during this take because I’m here to talk to you about extremists and their butthurtedness.
I love G@G as an online community because it’s filled with a bounty of different perspectives, impressive work, and a certain level of warmth and comradery. But like society, it is flawed in its politics, there is a high level of biased, and like most communities, it has a plethora of people who feel that the only way to express an opinion or to support a movement is to be a total asshat about it.
Am I the only one who feels that being offended by everything is making our society weak? The media seems to just support this pathetic nature that suggests that we can’t even make jokes without there being detrimentally negative connotation to it they may or may not actually even be there.
We’re demonstrating socially that we need to value the negative things that people say, that we need to be affected by what people say on a profound level, instead of being able to be receptive to different opinions and affiliations (to truly understand where you yourself stand and can better represent your own views) and being mentally strong and become adept at not being affected by the world’s bullshit. Like the good ol’ Rocky Balboa said:
Another user used this earlier today so thanks to him for the inspiration.
Of course, we all have reason and right to feel offended by certain things, but we have all met or seen a butthurt extremist who takes it to the next level and who just overshadow what could be an otherwise powerful and meaningful message by making it self-centered around being right, or around hate, and superiority, and just plain bullshit. So for this take today I am giving you guys examples of extremists and what I think they could do to actually make a difference outside of raining negativity on the internet and in the world around them, I hope you enjoy it.
We all know these types of people, the classic misandrists, chauvinists, whatever you know them as. These people are the absolutely most tragically butthurt individuals I swear I have ever seen; people who could be taking valuable messages that high light the struggles of each gender and represent them instead turn their movements into hate campaigns intended to assert superiority over the other gender. They’re quick to label anybody who has any sort of ideal outside of what benefits their gender directly as a misogynistic pig to the point of blind hypocrisy.
These people don’t tend to do anything beneficial outside of … bitching and moaning. Maybe instead of being hateful complainers who blame penises for all of your problems, you could try spreading equal awareness in a rational and reasonable way that makes your message more receivable, or hell maybe even try donating to a charity that looks to end gender inequality. They aren’t hard to find, there’s plenty of them.
Maybe consider getting off of the internet and making a positive difference. Just a suggestion, maybe take a good long look at the great Susan B. Anthony or Mary Ann Shadd if you need good examples to follow.
I am one of the first people to admit that men face social gender biases and the tables don’t always turn in their favor, but this movement literally demonizes women with no sense of rationality.
They believe essentially that women hypergamous and manipulative, and that society favors them in the fields of romance, social status, etc. So, they swear off of women as a means of “self ownership”, because god knows if you get with a woman she’s going to steal your balls from you and remove your ability to make your own decisions.
Am I the only one who thinks that this movement relates more directly to men who have no success in relationships due to a general lack of desirability? Somehow I don’t see healthy, attractive, and ambitious men being the atypical member of a MGTOW group. Oh, sorry, but since these guys preach so hard about what they can consider their version of "equality", I'm going to preach my version of "equality" that makes it okay for me to shit on you for shitting on me because FAIRNESS!
See how this isn't adding up and seems dickish? Good. Point proven then.
Someone, please, get this man a tube sock and a latex glove.
Maybe instead of just hating women, and assuming we’re all just out to get you, take your money, ruin your life and stick you with babies that aren’t yours, and trying to act as though not dating them is somehow going to improve gender biased in society (it isn’t) you could try speaking up for men’s rights and their issues in a productive and non-accusatory way? The same way I suggested for the psycho feminazis; it’s hard to take you seriously when you blame your problems on vaginas, stamp your feet and of all things make feminism your enemy. Yes, I agree third wave feminism is shit, but the core values of feminism certainly aren’t and they exist for a reason. Maybe speak out about the right subjects instead of just making women your enemy and bounding so far out of left field that no one can take you seriously.
Or, you know, just be celibate and leave everybody else the fuck alone?
I can’t stand social justice warriors because they are single handedly the most mislabeled people on the internet. These people are not fighting for any kind of social justice; they literally fight for their right to be offended. Period.
I swear that more than half of the SJW’s on the internet are freaking recluses who have nothing better to do than find everything that is wrong with the world and crap on other people for it, from behind the safe and protective shield of their computer screen.
They are the types of people that can’t hear a single joke about a stereotype, regardless of its nature, without being deeply and emotionally triggered to the point where their only mission is to make you feel like a total crap sack for not submitting to their ideals. They are the types of people who won’t actually give a single crap about a movement (because they don’t actually partake in it, support it, donate to it, spread awareness about it) but will bitch on behalf of that movement as though they are somehow earning themselves more morale.
Basically they are no fun to have at parties.
I’m sorry but just going on the internet and rampaging isn’t making a difference. Sure, a healthy rant is one thing, but if the positive message somewhere gets lost in your self-serving moral status seeking then there’s a real problem and it's not people disagreeing with how BML conducts themselves or suggesting that it's okay to laugh at a gay joke between friends within reason.
My recommendation to these people is that you really understand what you support, why you support it, and actually go about it in a way that isn’t all about a cut and dry concept that makes everybody who doesn’t agree with you an asshole. If you believe in something, there is a way to go about it without having to put down everybody else who doesn’t agree with you.
Notice how I am not putting veganism as a whole. Because in truth, I have no issues with vegans, even the vegans who are outspoken about their beliefs and feel other people should be vegan. I get the benefits, I acknowledge them, etc. That’s not my issue.
My issue are the extreme vegans that primarily dominate the internet. From YouTube, to Reddit , to anywhere where they can tell a large audience of people that they are huge animal torturing, raping pieces of shit.
I don’t want to include the YouTuber’s direct video in the link below because she’s already been proven to be a money hungry fraud (watch the video) because frankly, her channel doesn’t deserve any more views, so I’ll include famous YouTuber Pewdiepie’s reaction to one of her videos addressing him directly.
These people are the sole reason why an otherwise harmless movement is not taken seriously. Because instead of trying to be supportive of their own message in a way that invites people into the movement, their objective is … well, not so nicely put, to shit on everybody and guilt them into conforming to their ideals.
It doesn’t matter to them if you’re an omnivore, a vegetarian, or plant-based diet participant – you’re a terrible person if you are not 100% vegan, and they make names for themselves by being hateful and controversial, believing that this is the only way to get their movement the publicity it needs.
Whatever happened to being able to represent your movement without having to use hateful tactics?
My advice here is simple: support people in their dietary transitions, even if they’re just vegetarian – give them a pat on the back because every little bit helps, or even if they go meatless one day out of the week, it’s an IMPROVEMENT. Celebrate little victories and ENCOURAGE people to go further instead of acting like a trolltastic social media personality that literally makes veganism leave a bad taste in people’s mouths.
Alright everyone I know this one was a bit ranty but I have been asked a few times to do a rant-like post and I wanted to do it in an at least semi-constructive way. I hope somehow, someway, somebody found this helpful or at least laugh worthy because that's a win to me.
To help lighten up the mood, here's a hilarious picture:
