You're absolutely right. Everybody likes to be apart of a cause. I do. The problem is they're looking in all the wrong places because these SJWs, ironically, are the privileged ones. They don't typically suffer from any real problems, or feel affected by them. They see a tragedy on the internet, jump to conclusions, find a relatable experience that never really affected them in their lives, and suddenly they feel like a victim of something that didn't actually happen to them. They could try to back real cause like wealth inequality but that's too hard and actually requires work to be offended about.

It's exactly because they are privileged and don't typically have any real problems (race/discrimination etc) that they turn to such trivial things for their 'causes'.

That's why the Columbine shootings were so personal and victimizing for me. When I was younger, I saw a picture of a gun once. Years later I attended a high school. So obviously Columbine was deeply personal and traumatizing for me. That's why now I'm fighing against high school cafeterias and people who eat in them. They're so offensive.

You're doing good work. Don't forget to blame stuff that also advocates cafeterias, even if they're unrelated. Like any TV programs that may have them should be pulled from broadcast.

They don't typically suffer from any real problems? What about manspreading? But seriously, I agree with what you are saying here. The goal seems to be offense and righteous indignation rather than actual social change.

I agree, there are actual causes that seems like we are powerless to help so trying to extent control over a smaller and less significant issue help people feel good.
