Much as people love to bitch and moan, the only reason it ever pops up outside the threads for the topics, is because someone -else- has to bitch about stuff from off the site.

When pieces of entertainment are altered to cater specifically to social activists it's hard not to give a fuck. Especially when said social groups are racist as fuck.

If I'm not mistaken, this is true. At times, it feels like some of us intentionally look for things to get mad at, which they'll then share on SoL. Doesn't seem like a healthy thing to do to me. You're turning us all into passive smokers! :P

If it weren't for SoL (and Twitter which I seldom use nowadays) I wouldn't even know what SJW's and GG are.

Yeah, it's actually not that hard to avoid news on this subject.

I probably wouldn't have heard of those terms either.

Look, all I know is that I'm black and oppressed, so I have free reign to be an asshole.

Don't assume all white people are like that.

I think it's an interesting phenomena, to see how the internet has speeded up what is essentially the process of cultural paradgim shifts. Of course there's going to be turbulence and resistance in any way the ball may be rolling. Participating or observing in such discourse is constructive, whereas ignoring or avoiding it is not.

One way or another, we will all be effected by the consequences of such talks, be they between world leaders of randoms on social media. Such is the nature of reaction; it comes from action and becomes action in turn.

We live in an age of major, global social reform. I find it be as exciting as it is tiring.

hatred is the glue that keeps us bound. we keep trying to pull eachother off the peak with us, so it gives equilibrium.

And still no matter what I do I'm saturated in the latest online activist contro-drama-frenzy. Did you see X's latest blog about Y? Z is going to be pissed on Twitter! Let me #hashtag this one so everyone can see...

Who gives a flying FUCK?

Everyone has an opinion now and everyone feels so obligated to share their half-assed musings about the problems of society, and why you should give them attention. Just reactionaries with keyboards. And as soon as one activist voices their outrage, you instantly get twice as many people online reacting against them. Feminist and anti-feminist. Racist and anti-racist. "SJW" and anti-"SJW". They're all the same white noise and just as knee-jerk as their other halves: people who get offended and then the people offended at their offense. Do you know what it means when you say I'm offended by that? Nothing. You've added absolutely nothing to the conversation. Its just a whine - that's all that is.

And you know what the worst part is? The act of me complaining about this here? That makes me part of the problem. I'm joining that same storm, I'm feeding it. But apparently you can't even talk about a rare game like Pillars of Eternity anymore without pro-and-anti activists hijacking it with their social media drama. There's to be no escape from it apparently.

So the TL;DR is to stop feeding trolls. Rant over.

I feel you, but it's either we give in to the Two Minute Hate or get pissed off to the point of becoming antisocial. There is no paradise in humanity, no implacable happiness or sacred garden to escape into. So we either get pissed off at the folks pissing us off and become one with the cycle of piss poor judgement, or we go insane.

Why not both? The more the merrier.

Oh, piss poor decisions come very quickly after insanity. It's just a matter of when you'd like to exercise it, before or after you start wearing your fashionable new white coat.

I really wish this were addressed more.

I only ever had discussions like this, or about atheism or whatever the (out)rage of the moment is, come up in meatspace when I met someone who wallows way too much in the cesspits of reddit or other social medias. 90% of the people out there are blissfully oblivious or don't give a flying fuck about strangers being angry on the internet. I miss the times the internet was just about free porn.
