    Whenever an sjw sees what they feel is unfairness and unequalness anywhere, THEY SEE INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE!

    Intriguing hypothesis on the birth of SJW’s.
    However like all things, the reaction from them, through multiple videos, would suggest that choosing another course of action is not possible, or desired.
    Take the infamous Sanders video of his rally for example. It took only 3 people to completely derail and stop the event, even when presented the opportunity to speak. If their purpose was to engage people, to change how people thought, to spread a message of peace and equality, then the offer to speak would have been accepted.
    These people, had no intentions save their own desires, their own claim to fame as it were.

    Take some of the narrative from Fred up above.

    The typical SJW, those that preen for the camera, do get loud. They yell, begin using harsh language, and in some cases threaten the livelihood of those they have engaged against. This isn’t seeking the higher moral ground, not setting an example of one who comes from the moral high ground, this is an example of someone not getting their way and seeking to intimidate their rival into submission.

    As for privilege, there are many people out there, that have come from a strong financial background, that do not agree with the tactics of the current typical SJW.
    There are tactics for getting a message across that don’t involve blocking roadways, or selling a false narrative. Sure, the message is seen, but it becomes tainted by the frustration that it caused, therefore making it useless.

    The issue about contradicting these people’s ideology is that you also have to engage the issue of social media, where false information is rampant, as well as the news networks, where their only concern is profit and ratings. After all, what sells more than something that creates a sense of outrage?

    The real danger isn’t the quiet people who seek to create equality and peace. It’s those that think in order to do so they must do so with an iron fist. Something that is happening now, where very little conversation occurs and more accusation is desired.

    I am neither a liberal, nor a conservative. I was not raised by a wealthy family, and had my fair share of food stamps and recriminating looks. Also being a white male growing up next to Houston’s fifth ward did nothing to protect me from racism. However, I never let my struggle to survive bury my mind. I choose to engage wherever I see a chance for a respectful dialogue. I can almost certainly believe that even the most downtrodden person is aware to some extent the current events.
    So while wealth may certainly provide more time to be in the limelight, it is by no means a complete roadblock to doing so.

    This I direct to Fred…
    I am all for our 1st amendment, it, and our 2nd amendment, is what truly sets this nation apart and above most others.
    When someone has a different belief, an opposing opinion, a contrary idea, it serves no purpose in silencing them. Even though I disagree with the tactics of the typical SJW, I attempt to find a common ground. A sense of understanding so that a line of communication can begin. In no way has this article suggested a silencing of anyone. I would suggest that you reread the last paragraph.

    There is an old saying that my father was fond of and would be well to be taken to heart by anyone.
    “Be careful with the finger you point with, there are three others that are pointing back. “

    It’s strange that 2 people can read the same thing and interpret it so differently. I totally agree with you. Most people of any race want the same things, but the extremes can be pied pipered into playing along with those who really don’t have their best interests at heart.

    Our real problems aren’t the things that divide us but the entities that use anything to keep us divided. Our world seems to be controlled by a handful of banks and corporations. They want us to keep fighting amongst ourselves so that we don’t turn on them. They are doing such a great job that we’ll never have that sane conversation with each other to alleviate the problem.

    My take from this is; you have a problem with people fighting for gender equality, marriage equality, religious freedom, civil rights…ect, because you feel they are blaming you.

    I am a white male. I resent that conservatives way more that SJWs. You are stereotyping there as you give the impression that the so called SJWs are not white males.

    It is easy to say they get “riled up over nothing” when it doesn’t effect you. What they get upset about is very real to them. Are you implying that others will decide what is a worthwhile cause on their behalf?

    I could be considered a SJW and I am not well off financially. I have been called libtard and snowflake on almost a daily basis in the last 18 months. The one that gets me is we are supposedly all unemployed and sponging off the tax payers. I agree with you there, most Liberals have good paying jobs.

    SJW and Liberals just want to see peace and equality to all. Sure they may not be the ones suffering, but they are the ones standing up for those who are unable to stand up for themselves because they are too busy trying to survive as you stated.

    They might get loud in their efforts to bring attention to the issues the conservatives like to pretend don’t exist, but how is that a bad thing? How is trying to make the world a better place for all a bad thing?

    Don’t worry. I am not aware of any cases of feminists going on shooting rampages. You have a better chance of being shot by a gun toting right winger or struck by lightening.

    Just because the civil rights movement ended in the late 60s doesn’t mean that racism ended and equality just snapped into place. There are still plenty of people around who would love to push things back to the time when women and minorities knew their place and had no voice. And from this post, it almost sounds like you are in favor of silencing them too.

      “In the matter of reforming things, as distinct from deforming them, there is one plain and simple principle; a principle which will probably be called a paradox. There exists in such a case a certain institution or law; let us say, for the sake of simplicity, a fence or gate erected across a road. The more modern type of reformer goes gaily up to it and says, ‘I don’t see the use of this; let us clear it away. To which the more intelligent type of reformer will do well to answer: ‘If you don’t see the use of it, I certainly won’t let you clear it away. Go away and think. Then, when you can come back and tell me that you do see the use of it, I may allow you to destroy it.’ ” – from G.K. Chesterton’s 1929 book, The Thing, in the chapter entitled, “The Drift from Domesticity”

      Sadly, SJWs haven’t thought deeply about why society organized as it did. Change for change sake isn’t always good. The nuclear family has been a favorite target for destruction. So goes civilization…
