Thing is, my name is common as fuck.  The problem is, everyone spells it fucking wrong (with a 'c') instead of the right way (with a 'k').  Don't blame me because people aren't taught how to spell shit right.

Hell, my first name is a pretty common name in the main language of the area where I live, without any alternate spellings, and I still see it misspelled.

It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

...Welp, I guess people and languages are stupid.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I am guessing it's some transphobia / conspiracy theorist tendencies mixed together.

Yes because performances based on stereotypes are the same thing as... reacting using images of actual people, who presumably are acting like they have normal human emotions and intelligence. I guess.

The entire thing with Blood Heir I recently heard about from twitter definitely qualifies as the worst of Social Justice.

Basically a French-Chinese immigrant named Amelie Wen Zhao was going to write and release a trilogy of YA fantasy novels, with the first book Blood Heir having already been completed and advanced copies being passed around for review purposes. Gatekeeping American YA Twitter people saw examples of slavery in the novel and immediately thought of American Chattel Slavery of Black people and accused the book of being racist, along with making up a bunch of rumors about plagiarism and Zhao screenshotting critics (yes, screenshots, how incredibly nefarious)

Anyway, she was forced to cancel because of a harassment mob on twitter creating a smear campaign against her. So basically a bunch of privileged (mostly white) Americans harassed a woman of color into submission because they didn't like her fantasy novel.

The kicker: the slavery was supposed to parallel modern human trafficking slavery taking place in China and other parts of Asia, where Amelie grew up. It was a complete warping of her books content and ironically accusing her of racism was well... a massively racist harassment campaign.

Social Justice Crusader: B-But she needs to know WE TRUE PROGRESSIVES know what's best for her as a woman of color! She just needs to shut up and let us give her rights...except the right to speak for herself. She's too racist to use that right correctly.

Isn't it good that we have these nanny state SJW morons to protect us from ourselves? I mean, can you imagine all the independent thinking, all the differing viewpoints, differing perspectives we'd have to deal with without them? I shudder to think about being on my own finding things to be outraged by.

friendly reminder that you don't get to celebrate lunar new year unless you're literally from a country that does or if you are invited by someone who is from a country that does

Imagine somebody saying non-Irish people can't celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Chloe Bennett really needs to make up for her past if she doesn't want to be problematic af. On top of the whole name shit, she dated Logan fucking Paul. If that isn't betraying her fans (who expected a progressive actress) I don't know what is.Now that they broke up, she should date someone less likely to anger and frustrate her loyal fans.
