I always think of Sarah Jessica Parker when I see SJW.

Edit* Oh lordy. How the hell didn't he just snap and start calling HER names.

(Also, Trans people identify as a gender, so proclaiming that you're offended by gender pronouns while fighting for "Trans" is ridiculous. Inter-sexed people are the neutral gender identifying people. This SJW doesn't even know what her own argument is, to start off with. All she knows, is that she's offended by something.)

Edit* Oooh, she's F2M. Take that back. But how do you know that the reason you've been rejected from property is because of your gender identity? It could have been because of your pay, bad references, your demeanour.

And blaming someone's suicide 100% on being mis-identified by your gender is ridiculous. They're all ready in a psych-facility, obviously the issues run deeper.

I saw a petition to stop the reboot of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, because they still use the old definition of "Transvestite."

People need to shut up and suck a dick. Then everyone would be happy.

*Edit* Oh gawd. Now this dude is projecting an entirely new arguement that wasn't prevoked. The use of a pronoun isn't an issue. Discrimination itself is.

I have a fair percentage of trans people within my friendship circle, and pretty much all of them have agreed that if they're identified wrongly, if they sit down and calmly talk to someone about their transition, they're much more likely to be treated with respect, as well as informing a possibly ignorant person.

Trans people are a relatively new phenomenon, so of course there are going to be teething problems, but flying off the handle, alienating them, and being "RAHHHHH! ME TRANS YOU FEEBLE!" is going to enforce a deliberate retaliatory ignorance.

That pretty much describes any argument people have about anything. Politics, religion, music, etc....any time you discuss anything with someone of the opposite belief, if you lose your temper and try to bully the other person they are inevitably going to fight back.

http://nypost.com/2016/10/30/nyu-professor-who-opposed-pc-culture-gets-booted-from-classroom/

An NYU professor crusading against political correctness and student coddling was booted from the classroom last week after his colleagues complained about his “incivility,” The Post has learned.

Liberal studies prof Michael Rectenwald, 57, said he was forced Wednesday to go on paid leave for the rest of the semester.

“They are actually pushing me out the door for having a different perspective,” the academic told The Post.

Rectenwald launched an undercover Twitter account called Deplorable NYU Prof on Sept. 12 to argue against campus trends like “safe spaces,” “trigger warnings” and other aspects of academia’s growing PC culture.

He chose to be anonymous, he explained in one of his first tweets, because he was afraid “the PC Gestapo would ruin me” if he put his name behind his conservative ideas on the famously liberal campus.

“I remember once on my Facebook I posted a story about a kid who changed his pronoun to ‘His Majesty’ because I thought it was funny,” he told The Post. “Then I got viciously attacked by 400 people. This whole milieu is nauseating. I grew tired of it, so I made the account.”

On Oct. 11, Rectenwald used his Internet alter ego to criticize “safe spaces” — the recent campus trend of “protecting” students from uncomfortable speech — as “at once a hall of mirrors and a rubber room.”

Two weeks ago he posted on his “anti-PC” feed a photo of a flyer put out by NYU resident advisers telling students how to avoid wearing potentially offensive Halloween costumes.

“The scariest thing about Halloween today is . . . the liberal totalitarian costume surveillance,” he wrote.

“It’s an alarming curtailment of free expression to the point where you can’t even pretend to be something without authorities coming down on you in the universities,” Rectenwald told The Post.

But the Twitter feed soon sparked a “witch hunt” by the growing army of “social justice warriors,” he said. And so, when he was approached on Twitter by a reporter with the Washington Square News, NYU’s student newspaper, the untenured assistant professor agreed to an interview.

“I thought there was nothing objectionable about what I had said,” he told The Post.

“My contention is that the trigger warning, safe spaces and bias hot-line reporting is not politically correct. It is insane,” he told the student paper in an interview published Monday.

But Rectenwald says he began getting “dirty looks” in his department and on Wednesday figured out why: A 12-person committee calling itself the Liberal Studies Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group, including two deans, published a letter to the editor in the same paper.

‘Academic freedom: It’s great, as long as you don’t use it.’
- Michael Rectenwald
“As long as he airs his views with so little appeal to evidence and civility, we must find him guilty of illogic and incivility in a community that predicates its work in great part on rational thought and the civil exchange of ideas,” they wrote.

“We seek to create a dynamic community that values full participation. Such efforts are not the ‘destruction of academic integrity’ Professor Rectenwald suggests, but rather what make possible our program’s approach to global studies,” they argued.

Rectenwald likened the attack to “a Salem witch trial. They took my views personally. I never even mentioned them and I never even said NYU liberal studies program. I was talking about academia at large.”

The same day that letter was published, Rectenwald was summoned to a meeting with his department dean and an HR representative, he says.

“They claimed they were worried about me and a couple people had expressed concern about my mental health,” Rectenwald told The Post.

The leave has “absolutely zero to do with his Twitter account or his opinions on issues of the day,” said NYU spokesman Matt Nagel, refusing to elaborate on the reason.

But Rectenwald is disheartened.

“I’m afraid my academic career is over,” he said . “Academic freedom: It’s great, as long as you don’t use it.”

It's always amusing to see discussions where one person posts grammatically correct, properly spelled thoughts, and the other person doesn't, and then compare their grammatical stylings to the worth of their argument. Definitely strong correlation here.

They're really offensive.

And ignorant. China built a great wall, and it worked brilliantly for things. imagine if America made the greatest wall!?

If you're going to attack someone for a T-shirt, attack all those idiots that wear Armani Exchange. It's not like boasting about being too poor to buy the real Armani, but you're not in on the joke.

Tommy Hilfiger would get it.

Actually many documentaries have pointed to the walls being very inefficient at keeping people out. Mostly just for show of power. And there were about 30 different walls. All of which crumbled. Only the most recent one stands, which was only built about 300 years ago. And the only part of that wall that really stands is the part regularly maintained for tourism.

I stopped at non-binary pronouns.

She went from straight up ignorant & rude to full on retard in the space of 20 seconds.

What does SJW stand for? Is it some kind of abbreviation for a mentally slow help program or something? If it isn't. it really should be.

WTF? Are they the fashion police? I hate Trump too but people have the right to support him and wear those shirts without getting harassed. I love how hypocritical the SJW guy was, talking about living with different types of people yet he and that annoying girl can't seem to tolerate someone who has differing views than they do. I love the whole "I'm putting this up on youtube" mindset, everyone wants their 15 minutes of meaningless internet "fame" and it's pathetic. If they are all renting I hope that guy turned the video over to the owners or management company who run the place, maybe he could get them kicked out for harassment.

Yeah I skipped ahead a few times because that girl was so hard to listen to, the guy told her at one point it's hard to take it in because she just kept rattling on lol. I am 100% on board for equal rights and protections for all people but screaming at people that they need to accept them or use the words they want them to just makes things worse and I wish these aggressive types of protesters would understand that. They need to get to know people on a personal level and change minds that way, screaming "you have to love me" just makes people want to punch them in the face lol.

I think this belongs here, the shirt was taking a quote from the show, it had nothing to do with what the person was acting offended about.

‘Walking Dead’ Shirt Pulled From Stores After Complaint of Racism

A "Walking Dead" T-shirt has been removed for sale by a clothing retailer, after a complaint that the shirt was "racist" and "fantastically offensive."
The shirt in question bore the image of a baseball bat and the message "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe" -- a reference to a scene from the AMC zombie drama in which Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is deciding who in the protagonist group to kill.

In the scene, Negan continues the phrase with, "Catch a tiger by his toe" -- though, historically, the rhyme has employed the N-word rather than the word "tiger."

I didn't know where else to put this, but it kind of seems apt.


Not allowing transitioning/transitioned people says more about you denying people of the right to use a toilet.

It was shot down.

And now even more kids are shown to be not welcome in public spaces, schools, toilets, parks.
