3rd wave feminism and identity politics among members of the regressive left in the US is absolutely toxic. Many political thinkers are engendering a censorship ridden attitude where one can be held responsible for the subjective feelings of those around them. On college campuses across the US, more and more students are actively silencing the voices of those who disagree with their cause. Many refuse to entertain any ideas that directly conflict with their own, and as a result discourse as a learning tool and a method of exploration is becoming increasingly corroded. Fascism in the form of silencing any idea that conflicts with your own is a threat to free speech and stifles production conversation. If all ideas cannot be tested and explored to their logical conclusions, then one cannot know for certain that their position is the most reasonable. Furthermore, identity politics are encouraging many minority persons in the world to falsely believe that they need to be coddled to thrive. Racist democrats in the 1920's actively fought to keep police out of black neighborhoods so that black communities would be despondent with crime, keeping black people in poverty. Now in 2016, racist democrats such as HRC seek to keep black people in poverty through racist movements such as the BLM movement that has actively sought to reduce law enforcement presence in black communities, and even has gone so far as to seek racially segregated housing on college campuses. This is a major step back in terms of civil rights. Black people are not children. Black people are not stupid. Black people do not need to be coddled. Black people should be empowered to escape poverty just as any poor person should be empowered to escape poverty: investing massively in the availability of care and education (especially at young ages) to children in poor households, guaranteeing that all people have access to proper healthcare so that they are able to work to the best of their ability, and by establishing safety and comfort in impoverished communities through increased spending on parks/recreation centers and also increased police presence (and better training of police). Women do not need to be coddled either. In modern academia, Men make up only 42% of college campuses. Women also have twice as much job availability in STEM academia. The concept that many liberals so viciously assert that somehow women and minorities need to be treated like children is a much more sinister form of racism and sexism, and should not be tolerated. It is made especially dangerous by fascist sentiments held fairly widely by regressive liberals. White middle class women largely populate the leadership of the regressive left, and it is not their place to dictate how minority persons should think, and to spell out what is and is not racism. The rules of political correctness are becoming increasingly bizarre and strict. Donald Trump is politically incorrect to say "When Mexico sends its people, they"re not sending the best. They"re sending people that have lots of problems and they"re bringing those problems. They"re bringing drugs, they"re bringing crime. They"re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they"re telling us what we"re getting." This is politically incorrect because Trump is making generalizations about Mexican immigrants (illegal or otherwise) implying that they are by and large dangerous criminals. This is racial stereotyping, and is politically and ethically incorrect. When Trump says, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her" wherever." He's not being politically incorrect. He's just being a jerk, which really isn't that big of a deal. Most people are jerks.

Sidenote: I would argue that the US police are becoming increasingly militaristic unnecessarily as a result of the idiotic war on drugs.
If I became a philosopher, if I have so keenly sought this fame for which I'm still waiting, it's all been to seduce women basically.

This predates 3rd wave feminism in the public sphere. [some!] College students being willful and complicit ignorami isn't new either.

Why do we call socprogs the "regressive" left again?

Hm...interesting. There's another (banned) member who also uses the terms 'regressive left' and 'toxic'.

Ha! What makes you think I am a banned member?

And assuming I was a banned member, would that necessarily invalidate my position in any capacity in your opinion?

Why do you keep copy and pasting false words.

Trump clearly said their rapists, not they're rapists.

Bad reporting is worse when it's guzzled down like authoritarian kool-aid.

Those terms--but the entire post is pretty similar to what this individual would write.

No, it wouldn't invalidate the position or the content of your point(s) at all; rather I've just made an observation that might or might not be correct.

Thought so too at first. Searched it out, and this is the only indexed instance of it. Nope. All his original rant.

Yes, I see that. He took the time to write that mess in word, but not enough to add a CR or two.

Convincing enough for me that he probably didn't write it.

LMAO. Except for the fact that, generally speaking, BLM very strongly dislikes HRC - to put it is in the politest terms.

Actually I wrote that using the regular forum posting form. I was just drunk as sh*t when I wrote it so I didn't bother to format it.

Interesting theory. I am indeed a past member of the site. No I was not banned nor was I ever banned. I don't know if you would have considered me well known, but I was fairly high up on the debate leader board and many of the more active members of the site knew me.


And assuming I was a banned member, would that necessarily invalidate my position in any capacity in your opinion?

No, it wouldn't invalidate the position or the content of your point(s) at all; rather I've just made an observation that might or might not be correct.

Ah I see. Care to comment on my points?

I'm making a game of it. Some people have figured it out already (primarily bc I got drunk and showed my face in a hangout). I'd rather not give it away publicly yet.

What is amazing is how racist, sexist, and bigoted postmodern feminism and race feminism is. It's incredibly ironic... but that's a conversation I'd defer to Milo Yiannaupolis for. He can communicate that idea better than I would; it's probably his exquisitely gay and entirely British elocution.

But the reality is that when there is an absence of women (or, at least, a perceived absence) in traditionally male spheres; this is something that requires social justice warriors to intervene. But when there is an absence of men in traditionally female spheres, no one balks. In fact, if men even attempt to enter traditionally female spheres, even the most progressive feminists take issue with that.

You're never going to see a third wave feminist talk about the need for more male nurses, or male dental hygienists, or male secretaries. Ever. It's just not going to happen.

3rd wave feminism and identity politics among members of the regressive left in the US is absolutely toxic. Many political thinkers are engendering a censorship ridden attitude where one can be held responsible for the subjective feelings of those around them. On college campuses across the US, more and more students are actively silencing the voices of those who disagree with their cause. Many refuse to entertain any ideas that directly conflict with their own, and as a result discourse as a learning tool and a method of exploration is becoming increasingly corroded. Fascism in the form of silencing any idea that conflicts with your own is a threat to free speech and stifles production conversation. If all ideas cannot be tested and explored to their logical conclusions, then one cannot know for certain that their position is the most reasonable. Furthermore, identity politics are encouraging many minority persons in the world to falsely believe that they need to be coddled to thrive. Racist democrats in the 1920's actively fought to keep police out of black neighborhoods so that black communities would be despondent with crime, keeping black people in poverty. Now in 2016, racist democrats such as HRC seek to keep black people in poverty through racist movements such as the BLM movement that has actively sought to reduce law enforcement presence in black communities, and even has gone so far as to seek racially segregated housing on college campuses. This is a major step back in terms of civil rights. Black people are not children. Black people are not stupid. Black people do not need to be coddled. Black people should be empowered to escape poverty just as any poor person should be empowered to escape poverty: investing massively in the availability of care and education (especially at young ages) to children in poor households, guaranteeing that all people have access to proper healthcare so that they are able to work to the best of their ability, and by establishing safety and comfort in impoverished communities through increased spending on parks/recreation centers and also increased police presence (and better training of police). Women do not need to be coddled either. In modern academia, Men make up only 42% of college campuses. Women also have twice as much job availability in STEM academia. The concept that many liberals so viciously assert that somehow women and minorities need to be treated like children is a much more sinister form of racism and sexism, and should not be tolerated. It is made especially dangerous by fascist sentiments held fairly widely by regressive liberals. White middle class women largely populate the leadership of the regressive left, and it is not their place to dictate how minority persons should think, and to spell out what is and is not racism. The rules of political correctness are becoming increasingly bizarre and strict. Donald Trump is politically incorrect to say "When Mexico sends its people, they"re not sending the best. They"re sending people that have lots of problems and they"re bringing those problems. They"re bringing drugs, they"re bringing crime. They"re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they"re telling us what we"re getting." This is politically incorrect because Trump is making generalizations about Mexican immigrants (illegal or otherwise) implying that they are by and large dangerous criminals. This is racial stereotyping, and is politically and ethically incorrect. When Trump says, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her" wherever." He's not being politically incorrect. He's just being a jerk, which really isn't that big of a deal. Most people are jerks.

Sidenote: I would argue that the US police are becoming increasingly militaristic unnecessarily as a result of the idiotic war on drugs.
We have a bunch of PC SJW idiots who think that because you disagree with someone you aren't allowed to express your opinion.
I agree that no one should be coddled like this.

LMAO. Except for the fact that, generally speaking, BLM very strongly dislikes HRC - to put it is in the politest terms.

Why? Her husband can play the saxophone; isn't that enough?

Lol, I hate that quote because nobody ever understands Morrison's actual point (that typical negative black stereotypes were used to attack Clinton).
"I thought about the Paschal Candle. Wounded in its wax, wounded in its wick, wounded in its light, having the Passion of Christ in it and having therefore the woundedness of the world in it, it was there at our cradle, going before us and guiding us in time, and now again, there it is at our coffin, going before us and guiding us into eternity."
