  • They are often horribly misinformed and attack people on the Internet. For example, they want to create racial equality, but then yell at people for cultural appropriation. Cultural appropriation is when someone adopts things from another culture. For example, they often say that people with fringe bags are stealing it from Native Americans. In order to create a global society where everyone is accepted there needs to be a cultural crossover. However, Social Justice warriors try to prevent this while claiming to be helping.

  • *sigh... I really don't want to talk about why I dislike SJWs, I simply don't have enough time or space to fully articulate it.

So, she got up infront of a room full of university students, claimed that it's impossible for her to be racist/sexist because she's an ethnic minority woman, and everyone was fine with that?

Yes, because if they weren't fine with that, they would all be racist and sexist and anti-equality, as well as not 100% politically correct, f*ck forbid.

"Cultural appropriation is when someone adopts things from another culture. " - That is actually not what culture appropriation is. Culture appropriation refers to a dominant group in society "adopting" elements of the cultural identity of an oppressed group. The reason why it's normally looked down upon is because it's almost always in a stereotypical fashion. For example, wearing blackface, or mocking foreign accents in a stereotypical way is a form of culture appropriation. As oppressed peoples' cultures are mimicked by the dominant culture, observers may begin to falsely associate certain cultural practices with the person doing the appropriating, and not with the people who originated them. This is often seen in the use by cultural outsiders of a minority, oppressed culture's symbols or other cultural elements, such as music, dance, spiritual ceremonies, modes of dress, speech and social customs, among other cultural expressions. Like Miley Cyrus twerking, a dance that originated in urban black communities in America. When she does it, everyone associates with her, and suddenly it's more acceptable. But blacks have been doing it for decades and it was always looked down upon, seen as trashy, and unacceptable. It's not completely a bad thing, but it's not a good thing either.

And quite honestly, I prefer "social justice warriors" to people like this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drbqRHXBvTM
