This is a subverse for discussion of SJW encroachment. Posts about SJWs on Voat, people making excuses for "oppressed" groups, infestations on other sites, white knights, tokenizing, shoehorning of stereotypes, false attempts at "diversity", and news reports on the subject are all welcome here.
What is a SJW?
"Social Justice Warrior". A more appropriate term would be "Outragist". They are people who see hate in everything, and are racist, sexist, ableist, and LGBTphobic. They are known to shove false statistics, distort them, and use outright lies to get their way. They are also known to elevate people above criticism because of the person's status or identity. Even if the person commits serious crimes.
Don't they stand up for the rights of people?
No. In these modern times, people are more than capable of speaking for themselves. These SJWs are often able-bodied neurotypical white people who speak for those of minority status and women. This is a bigoted practice as they are drowning out the voices of the people they think they speak for.
SJWs only see identities. Not people.
Are all pro-PC and feminists people SJWs?
No. People who support equal rights and fight for them through the legal system, peaceful protest, and campaigning are good people.
And feminists are in support of men being equal to women by bringing responsibilities of both sides upwards. SJWs are not feminists, but sexists.
What is "White Knighting"?
A form of sexism in which someone constantly comes to a woman's aid. Even if she does not want, need, or deserve it. It's a highly disrespectful form of sexism in that it shows no respect towards a woman's independence or capability. It's no better than pushing a guy in a wheelchair without his permission.
What is "Tokenism"?
Tokenism is the practice of including a member of a specific demographic (usually women or black people) purely to appear diverse, when in actuality the "token" does not hold the power, importance, or authority that the rest of the group has. In fiction, this can be easily detected by someone's identity being constantly brought up instead of their actual character.
What is "Infantilizing"?
To infantilize someone is to treat them like a child, denying their own maturity. This is commonly done by SJWs, especially when it comes to transgendered people. Again, seeing only identity and not the person, and denying someone their own defense.
Isn't diversity a good thing?
The problem is that when someone with little experience with other ethnicities, groups, or the disabled tries to incorporate them into a workplace or work of fiction, they tend to spend more time going on and on about what makes them different instead of what makes them a person. If you have a deaf guy and an autistic savant on staff, good on you for giving them an opportunity, but repeatedly bringing up their disabilities means you only care about looking diverse.
So yes, it is a good thing, if you understand the concept.
What causes someone to become a SJW in the first place?
They simply never learned how to properly interact with people who are different from them. Thus, overwhelmed with white guilt, they overcompensate to the point of obsession.
What content is not allowed here?
Personal information is prohibited, as is undermining a Voat user's personal deletion of comments. This is a voat-wide rule.
Calls for doxx, harassment, threats, or intimidation.
Bitching about "hits" and asking for archives of active pages. If it bothers you that much, make the archive yourself.
