Once you've taken an honest look at this and the reality of the situation sets in, come back.

Once you've taken an honest look at this and the reality of the situation sets in, come back.

You're imposing your own adult understanding on the video though. While all that stuff you mentioned is probably influencing the girl's video, she's not imposing that complicated thought process on her viewers; her core message is so much simpler than what you've proposed. It'd be like attacking Sesame Street for having a pro-immigrant agenda because a Latino runs the Sesame Street bodega.


Go back and watch from about 45 seconds to about 2:45, I don't think there is anything subtle about the intent there or that lines up with that analogy, but I'm willing to accept it could be my own biases rearing through. I'm not opposed to teaching kids about concepts of gender or sexuality or about the types of oppression many communities have faced in the past and still do, but it must be taught after foundational concepts like biology and world history are understood or they will not be able to be dealt with in an academic and critical manner, it will be like teaching a religion. Equity theory in particular requires an understanding of 20th century Marxism (Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, etc.).

I've never read Harrison Bergeron, so...?

But otherwise, this is awesome! This person has a progressive belief she(?) wants to share with kids, is able to produce it on a low budget and share it via a no-cost distribution platform (with cries of "Who's gonna fund PBS?!" in the background), and the overall aesthetic isn't terrible considering its target audience.

I hope she succeeds in her goals. Of all the crap I see every time I look at the internet, this is like the least-threatening thing ever. It's way less threatening to our society than our collective love affair with kitten videos (or bird videos).

I'm sure you'd be equally sanguine if Milo Yiannopoulos produced a video extolling the virtues white, Western culture. I mean, it's just a dude with a conservative believe he(!) wants to share with kids, able to be produced at low cost yet remain aesthetically pleasing.

Right?

I think we need to invite more of the flat earthers to our geographical surveys, personally.

And a quick (serious) question: would anyone here contend that the concept of (insert dominant group) privilege is invalid? If so I'd be interested to hear why.

quick to ask, but not to answer.

- Certain groups have advantages over others in a given society, sure. These groups are almost infinitely divisible and combinable with other groups to a degree that it is almost becomes meaningless, but not entirely. Certainly it exists to some degree. But SJWs only focus on particular kinds of "privilege", mostly sex and race, declare these the sole cause of inequality, ignoring all others (especially those which the SJW may enjoy), and treat them as one way streets (they aren't; women enjoy many advantages over men, for example). This is one of many ways it disguises its true roots, namely class warfare and Marxism.

- Far too often, it's used as a lazy way to judge individuals based on skin color, sex, or other broad and superficial categorization. ("you're a white male, therefore your life is on easy mode", "you're black, therefore you are a victim"). This is simple bigotry. SJWs do is all the time. Some recognize that this is inappropriate. Some.

- Collective guilt is nonsense. "Social justice" is nothing but a marketing term or rhetorical cheat. Justice is inherently individual. Using the concept of social justice in an attempt to level the playing field is unjust and despicable.

- Winners in a society are not necessarily oppressors and the losers are not necessarily victims. One can't look at the outcome of a given activity and declare that the winners were privileged (though they often are) or that they cheated. Individuals differ in capacity, skill, health, strength; and unequal fortune is a necessary result of unequal condition.

- The only other group that indulges in identity politics to the degree that SJWs do are white supremacists, which is where it largely originated. This isn't a coincidence.

TL;DR : yes

Friend of a friend on facebook, just now: "As a white woman I wouldn't want to become complicit in the anti-black politics of appropriation, no matter how cute I think box braids are."

OK, nutbags. You're not helping!

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/edu ... c2fd8be983

Quote:
The first lady, who is increasingly carving out a public profile for herself, chose the classic children’s book and nine other Dr. Seuss titles to send an elementary school in Cambridge, Mass., in celebration of “National Read a Book Day.”

But a librarian at Cambridgeport Elementary School is refusing to accept the gift.

Seuss’s illustration are “steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures and harmful stereotypes,” librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro wrote in a strongly worded letter to Trump on Tuesday.


"That's very nice. Thank you for the books, Ms. Trump."

Not really SJW, but a reporter on CNN almost did the same thing, saying something like “most country music fans are trump supporters”... clearly going for the whole “ha ha you like guns and now you are massacred. Ha ha. Ha ha. So ironic.” Take on this.

I know this isn't really SJW, but I use this thread for venting my annoyance with crazy liberals who are hurting the cause.
