The things mentioned, the things said, the things happening are extensions of real world pushes for "diversity" that are attacking certain groups. And instead of inclusivity, they spout racist and sexist rhetoric.

Even Miles Morales (I think it was Miles) getting the talk from someone about how it doesn't matter if this was a person helping you and a nice guy, etc, he was still an Old White Dude doing what Old White Dudes Do and taking advantage of you.
I'm not sure what you are asking in the first sentence. And the rest.. I'm not familiar with any of these examples and have no idea what point you are getting at.

Don't do piggish things and you won't be called a pig. This whole line of conversation stems from the false premise of a strawman feminazi shouting "all men are pigs". Which isn't a real thing anyone is actually concerned about, least of all actual feminists.

Anyway. Seems like a good place to post this video. It addresses some of the issues that SoL in particular has been facing over the last several years.


"... I don't take you at your word, because I cannot form a coherent worldview out of the things you say. So, forgive me if when you tell me what you believe, I don't think you're being candid with me. It kinda seems like you're playing games."

Nailed it. Postmodern conservatism in a nutshell. The most relevant stuff starts around 6:30.
