the closet perspective

a look at life behind the filter. im a bisexual female. im also an atheist, hippie, speech and debator, nerd, gamer, whovian, lover of the script and nirvana.

Tumblr is an awesome website, with the ability to share whatever you want (including, but not limited to, your uncensored opinion) with whomever you want.  However, there are evidently some problems with this, including (but not limited to) cultural appropriation, disability appropriation, oppression Olympics and a false ultra-liberal “accept everything” attitude.  Typically, I’m a very live-and-let-live sort of person, but thanks to these fools, the real issues of our society are being smothered.

One example is the negativity now associated with being a SJW, or “social justice warrior”.  Originally heralded as the wisest and most accepting people on the internet, many have since disassociated themselves with the identity due to the recent backlash against them.  The reason?  All of the fakers, the attention cravers, the special snowflakers who latch on to the title of SJW to proclaim their falsified issues to the whole of the web.

The only problem is the lack of social justice being sought, or even the lack of social justice being needed.  These people aren’t interested in feminism, or being anti-racism, or anti-homophobic.  No, these people want to blab about how society is oppressing their “phantom fat” and how society doesn’t understand their burning desire to be disabled.  How they really feel discrimination in their everyday life because they feel that their inner soul is a 2000 year old elf mage, or a Japanese woman.


Those are NOT real issues, NOT real problems, NOT discriminated against, NOT hated by society. No one who talks about those so-called issues needs any sort of justice.  It has gotten to the point where I, myself, barely identify as a SJW any longer.  The antics about pronouns and all the made-up prefixes and suffixes are driving me mad.

So if they could quit ruining the term SJW for the rest of us, that would be great.
