Worst of Social Justice - Take 2

Since the old thread is basically dead and buried, I decided to start a new one.

I think I've seen this one floating around twitter so I know the person who said it a little bit.

It pains me to know this was said unironically.

That sounds utterly silly - Almost on the level of "it is transphobic for you to be trans".

And just in case people think this kind of lunacy is confined to the Internet:

TL;DR

"Whitey to the back."

"No."

"You're being racist right now."

Context: The National Post is the right-wing rag of Canadian newspapers. I trust them to be unbiased about as much as I'd trust a paper like the Vancouver Courier (a local left-wing rag) to be unbiased.

Well, now that you say that, I'm looking at this more skeptically.

Here's the CBC's article on the same issue.

I would note that I believe both are the same article, however, taken from The Canadian Press.

Gee, I wonder if a white performer could pull the old "whitey to the front, darkies to the back" in the name of "anti-racism" and have so many people buy it?

Don't these people realize that stuff like this is only gonna give the 1488 crowd more ammo? That's what really gets me.

i’m so fucking tired of the “personal empowerment” aspect of feminism that libfems latch onto - i don’t give a shit if stripping makes you feel “empowered”, or if wearing eyeliner so sharp it could kill a man makes you feel “empowered”, or if filming porn makes you feel “empowered”, you are STILL HURTING WOMEN. feminism is not about the individual, it is about the collective, and the fact of the matter is, makeup still upholds traditional standards of beauty, so i don’t care if you “do it for yourself”, you’re still upholding patriarchal structures. and the fact of the matter is, more women in sex work are abused than not, so no, i don’t give a flying fuck if your experiences haven’t been bad, or if you love what you do, or if you feel empowered, but you are STILL PERPETUATING SYSTEMS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST AND OPPRESSION OF WOMEN. just because it doesn’t personally affect you doesn’t mean it’s not harmful to other women.
 feminism isn’t about the individual, it’s about the collective

Any sufficiently radical feminism is indistinguishable from patriarchy.

"When women enter the Massachusetts Legislature building, State Representative Michelle DuBois says there’s one door they try to avoid: the “General Hooker Entrance.”

“Female staffers don’t use that entrance because the sign is offensive to them,” DuBois told WBZ-TV.

Now DuBois says it’s time for the entrance, actually named after the prominent Civil War general Joseph Hooker, should be taken down or renamed."

tl;dr version: she wants it renamed because people make immature sex work related jokes about it. Mind you the guy its named after is a hero who helped stop the Confederates. So I'm kinda of the mind that this man's legacy is more important than middle school humor and as such should overshadow the hooker jokes.

Yeah, because there's only ever one kind of disadvantage and only one kind of privilege. Wonder if her parents are upper class?

So all those black men who got lynched during Jim Crow really were guilty?
