    It takes a special kind of blindness to say you work for social justice and post links which make a mockery of it. Let me guess: You got these links from reddit. Seems right up their ally.

    •  no. this isn't making fun of real social justice (0+ / 0-)

      this is making fun of the hypersensitive, fake "social justice" that's making a mockery of real social justice going around tumblr

        It's a diary by a white guy with a link to videos made by a white guy laughing about issues neither of you understands. For starters, ableism isn't a fake social justice issue. I'm disabled. It affects my life every damn day. Most people are blind to it, which tends to make my life more difficult and even more painful.

        •  again, not talking about legit "ableism" (0+ / 0-)

          talking about people with self-diagnosed, non-existent problems.

        •  I'm a white guy. I'm disabled (0+ / 0-)

          Am I congenitally incapable of understanding what it is to be disabled because I'm a white guy?  That would seem to be your argument.  Essentialize much?

          Pay no attention to the upward redistribution of wealth!

            My first sentence had nothing to do with ableism. It had to do with racism, which is what this diary is primarily about (not to mention sexism). The diarist has a history of sexist and racist remarks at this site. Some of his diaries are particularly sexist. My comment was made in that context.

              it has EVERYTHING to do with run away hypersensitivity and how it's going to be a problem if it continues on the way i've seen it progress. For the last couple years it's been basically confined to tumblr... but i've noticed this brand of crazy creeping into the real world. I'm afraid that it will turn social justice into a punch line with everyday folks who don't follow what's going on online.  I'm afraid it could negatively affect election results. I'm afraid it could make us seem out of touch with reality if we start having people talking about "headmates" or "other-kin" in public.
