I'd never stop bumjaw saying anything he wants to say, ever. Nor you Maxil. Even if I disagree.
To be honest, the 'hostility' between bumjaw and I is probably exaggerated in both our minds. I think he's alright. Misguided in certain ways, sure. He just thinks I'm an SJW -- he's woefully misinformed. SJWs are cunts.
The whole SJW and anti-SJW thing is just two sides of the same coin. Reductive mentalities on both sides trapped in a culture war hysteresis.
I'm not anti-SJW either insofar as anti-SJW-ism manifests as reaction.
They push each other to their respective extremes -- and, sadly, neither of those extremes are on the Left as such. Both end up being conservative.
Completely agree with this.
I personally see SJW-isms as being a Daily Mail interpretation of what Left Wing politics are, when they most certainly aren't.
Good examples are the BBC and Guardian who pretend to be left-wing, but as soon as a proper left wing person comes along such as Jeremy Corbyn for example, they shit themselves and join the likes of the Sun, Daily Mail etc and right wing establishment in slagging it off.
SJW-isms are basically pseudo left-wingism, what the Murdoch press interprete the left-wing to be about to their impressionable readers when really Left Wing politics is about UNIVERSAL Human Rights, not different marginalised groups stupidly competing with each other for top victimhood status for the spoils of crumbs.
