Footman SABs (Social activist bullshit)

I didn't want to make this thread but after what happened in the Pillars of Eternity thread I feel compelled to say something. I don't blog, I don't use Twitter, I don't Facebook, I don't collect upvotes on Reddit and the closest I get to social media is spamming on 4chan. 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 think it's pointless as well. But it's their freedom to do it, just ignore them if you don't like.

Also remember sometimes, these people do give some useful ideas.

If someone is fighting a culture war on an internet forum they're a dumb idiot.

Just because someone talks about something you don't want them to talk about, doesn't make them trolls. Even when it inevitably devolves into trolling.

SJWs/Political Correctness/Anti-GG, it's all the same cancerous bullshit; everyone's a special snowflake and has not only the right, but the duty, to be offended at fucking anything and everything.

And when you're offended at it, it MUST mean something has to change, instead of you, you know, either ignoring it or not buying/supporting the product, no, the product has to change to suit your agenda.

Nonsense, fucking nonsense. We're a truly pathetic species.

So the purpose of this thread is to get any derailed thread to be back on track as long as the derailment is a bout social media bullshit?

Moreso communism than anything else. I really don't see much in the way of "nobody should be better at anything than anyone else" when SJWs start talking.
