Monster Hunter Nation

Why I don't like Social Justice Warriors

After my post about the Social Justice Warrior’s cannibal feeding frenzy, http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/11/10/sjw-cannibal-feeding-frenzy/ I’ve had a few people ask me why I bother writing about these people. That’s a good question. The short answer is that I can’t tolerate bullies.  The long answer is complicated.

I read Sarah’s post this morning, http://accordingtohoyt.com/2014/11/14/table-settings-at-the-cannibal-feast/  She is also talking about the SJW blogger getting caught being a total asshole scumbag jerk face, but to the SJWs the problem wasn’t that she was doing these horrible things, it was that she was doing these horrible things to the wrong people. Because when these horrible things are done to people like me or Sarah, then they are double plus good.

But one of her commenters said something that really struck me, and I want to quote it here.

Synova – Some of the comments by people who had been subject to the full treatment just made me want to cry. I didn’t think it was funny because the guilty parties and enablers aren’t the ones who are hurt. Yes, we can scoff at Scalzi when he makes a rational counter-argument and is made, ultimately, to retract and abase himself and agree in public and start proselytizing in public that no… you really can’t trust your own brain and if something seems wrong to you or you feel like defending yourself it is simply proof that you’re guilty.

But there were people who reported rather severe PTSD type reactions to even sitting down at a keyboard to write because they were so terrified of offending… again. Because *rationally* they’d done nothing wrong the first time, but they were forced to an irrational acceptance of their guilt. So now they’ve “accepted their privilege” and “checked it” and confessed and repented (they could come to the Dark Side and be welcomed, but they don’t know that, and have been taught that the Dark Side is evil, and that’s why shunning is so very evil within closed communities… being exiled is a horrific punishment) but since they had NO IDEA how they could have done something wrong in the first place, they also have no idea how to avoid it the next time.

Imagine doing this to a child.

 

The kid is walking through a room doing nothing much and suddenly POW… and then you tell the kid… well that was YOUR fault. You screwed up. You stepped on that spot on the floor.

 

So the kid looks at the spot and it looks like every other spot. But the kid is told that, no, the fact that she can’t even SEE the spot is what the problem is. You can’t SEE the spot… that’s why it is YOUR fault. Also, a good child will try to learn. You’re a good child, aren’t you?

 

So the kid says, yes… it was my fault. I could not SEE the spot. Not seeing the spot makes this my fault.

Afterward, it’s still impossible to see the spots, and walking across the room becomes fraught with danger. Sitting down at the keyboard gives this very “good” person the shakes and panic attacks… where are the spots? She still can’t see the spots but she MUST agree and believe that those spots exist.

 

I have a LOT of sympathy for those who were hurt, just like I have sympathy for any abused person.

Bingo. My problem is that I like stepping on their spots.

The issue with the Social Justice Warrior contingent isn’t just that they’ve got their causes, it is that they take those causes and use them to brow beat not only their opposition, but also the innocent bystanders, the undecided, and newcomers.

They’ve gotten away with it too, because they had cultural allies in high places, like academia, publishing, film, and the media. If you enter one of those industries they try to frighten you into staying within their arbitrary and capricious lines. If you color outside their lines, their punishments are slander, threats, rumor, lies, harassment, and whatever career damage they can come up with.

You know, all the stuff Requires Hate did to the wrong people. The threats, harassment, and slander weren’t special or unique. My side is used to them. Hell, according to the SJWs I’m a racist, sexist, homophobic, wife beating, rape apologist. None of those things are true, but it doesn’t matter to the SJWs. I’m a foe, and thus must be shunned. They stick as much stuff like that out there as possible in order to build a narrative about their targets. It is pervasive. The uninformed read those things and believe them.

Requires Hate only became controversial for getting caught using those tactics on people who’d obeyed and tried to color in their lines. That was a violation of the SJW’s social contract of not eating their own until they stray from proper goodthink.

The SJWs say they stand for equality. Only they don’t. That’s a smoke screen. They are champions of diversity, provided that everyone is diverse in exactly the same approved manner. At their core they are petty, vengeful, tyrannical thought police, who simply can’t abide someone sinning. They’re an unholy cross between puritans and communists, with a heavy dose of Zanax, and severe self-esteem issues.

Social Justice Warriors are control freaks. Nothing more. Their bizarre antics have given true feminists a bad name. Their mad accusations of racism against anything and everything causes real racism to get lost in the background noise. By accusing well meaning, good intentioned individuals of horrible crimes, they legitimize and empower the real criminals.

The most interesting part of last week’s big expose of Requires Hate was the comments from various left wing or moderate authors living in fear of being slandered or having their careers destroyed. All I can say to them is welcome to the party, buddy. Now do you understand why thought police are so dangerous? You can’t cheer when they go after those you disagree with, and then act surprised when the pack of vicious attack dogs you’ve fed, raised, and nurtured eventually turn on you. Attacking is what they are programmed to do. One day you will make a wrong move, or a move they at least perceive to be wrong, and then you’re going to get bitten.

Of course, once people like me and Sarah commented on this, the SJW Harpy Brigade took to Twitter to complain how horrible it was “White Men” feel they get a say in the matter… Let that bigotry soak in for a moment. Sure, this is our industry, and it affects our livelihood and our friends, but no opinion for you, because of skin color.

SJWs stifle artistic creativity. When artists, authors, designers, and creators are afraid of crossing the invisible lines, art suffers. What some of you haven’t realized yet however is that the lines just aren’t invisible, they move based upon how much the SJWs like you. Basically, if you are on their shun list, no matter what you do, you will give offense and cause outrage. And if you are one of them, you have a dispensation to sin freely.

If the SJWs decide you are an enemy anything you do is automatically sexist, racist, homophobic, or something, and they will tell thousands of complete strangers all about it. Regular nice people don’t like being accused of horrible, vile things, so usually they fall back in line. Of course, actually reading the books or knowing anything about the author is unnecessary before slandering them, which is how come to them I’m a white guy with white privilege who writes about manly white men doing white things for white people.

For those who end up on the shun list, if you have a minority character you are guilty of “tokenism” or worse, “cultural appropriation” which is a totally asinine concept, especially in a nation based upon cultural appropriating every winning idea and strategy in the history of the world. My children are Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Russian, Jew, Mormons, descended from conquistadors, Vikings, cowboys, pioneers, and prophets, and we had Indian food for dinner last night before watching a Japanese TV show while I glued together pieces of a Spanish war game. My ancestors introduced the chili pepper to Thailand and my wife’s ancestors were legal to shoot on sight in Missouri. Who the hell do you think you are to tell an American not to culturally appropriate stuff?

However, if you are a SJW approved writer you can write tweets that are so blatantly, absurdly bigoted and racist that if you do a find and replace of White Man for Jew it would read like a Heinrich Himmler speech.

The SJW’s campaign of suppression is insidious and far reaching. They don’t just come after you after you’ve created, they scare you before you start.

Back when I mocked the foolish demands of End Binary Gender lady on Tor.com http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/01/28/ending-binary-gender-in-fiction-or-how-to-murder-your-writing-career/ and then defended myself from the White Knights who rode up to defend the poor damsel in distress from my Big Evil Swarthy Menace http://monsterhunternation.com/2014/01/29/5687/ I heard from a whole bunch of authors, ranging from just beginning to superstars, but mostly political moderates or liberals, thanking me for talking about this. These authors are frightened of writing about certain things or writing about them in the wrong way. Basically, they were trying to be good kids, and they didn’t know where the spots were. And these authors couldn’t comment themselves because they knew that would draw the SJW attack dogs.

Interesting side note, it was fun to hear from a bunch of liberal authors how End Binary Gender lady wasn’t such an innocent damsel in distress, and how she was actually an attack dog bully who’d harassed people at conventions. Fast forward a year and we see her implicated as one of Requires Hate’s minions. Fantastic.

This stuff is pervasive. It is everywhere. Don’t do this. Don’t do that. I got involved in the End Binary Gender nonsense because I actually like encouraging writers, especially new ones. SJWs like scaring writers. They’ll lecture you on forbidden topics and forbidden words, because the most important thing in the creative process is that the author walk on egg shells, worried that he might inadvertently sin.

Some of my fans follow various SJWs on Twitter and send me links to the most ridiculous quotes. An award winning SJW author recently tweeted about how she wasn’t going to play the videogame Destiny because it used Dark versus Light. Then there were a whole mess of comments which basically said You Go Girl! That’s Racist Colonialist talk!

Now there are plenty of reasons to hate Destiny’s writing (I actually felt bad for Peter Dinklage during some of the nonsensical exposition) but racism isn’t one of them. Somehow to an SJW dark vs. light or black vs. white used as a theme to represent good vs. evil is actually racist and based upon human skin tone… So now aspiring authors are afraid to use this because they don’t want to be racist. Too bad this is like one of the oldest continual themes in human storytelling, dating back to when we figured out fire kept away the things in the dark that wanted to eat us.

In actuality every human culture, from every continent, has some form of good vs. evil myth represented by light vs. dark. Because I write Monster Hunter, I’m a folklore nerd, so within a couple of seconds of reading that I thought of myths from Africa, India, South America, and all over Asia where the good guys were represented by “light” and the bad guys were represented by “dark”. The Bible, the Torah, the Talmud, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita, that is a theme is all over religious writings from every corner of the world, from Amaterasu to Zoroastrians, light good, dark scary. Light you can see. Dark you can’t. Duh.

Hell, there’s a Dark Side of the Force for a reason!

But you should totally not use that old and powerful theme that appeals to all of sane humanity in your work, because outrage. Stay in your lines, peasant.

Recently another author tweeted something about oh good, another story where a white man says things, does things, then shoots things. Yeah, that sounds pretty horrible, except it describes stories as diverse as Unforgiven to Blade Runner, or Raiders of the Lost Ark to the Godfather, or Inception to Apocalypse Now. So maybe, just maybe, there is more diversity to storytelling than the skin deep bullshit SJWs fixate on.

Basically, the SJWs want you to be screwed, no matter what. If they can only control criminals, then soon enough they’ll make sure that everything is a crime.

The solution?

For creators, don’t play by their rules. Write what you want. Write about what inspires you. Make up whatever characters you think make for the most interesting story.

When the SJWs come for someone, and you know that they are liars, stand up for the truth. When they form an angry mob, at minimum don’t join in. If you’re like me and not adverse to confrontation, fight back. Tell the truth. When they say something bug nuts crazy, you’re not doing anyone any favors by validating their stupid opinion.

Don’t let them set the terms. When they say you’re something-ist, and you’re clearly not, tell them so. Never accept their lies. When they start explaining how you’re guilty because of invisible privilege, micro aggressions, or original sin, then all the observers will realize just how full of shit they really are.

When they judge someone based upon the color of their skin or their sex, rather than the content of their character or the quality of their ideas, call them on their bigotry.

Don’t let them determine what constitutes an acceptable response. They will show up, insult you, and then demand polite debate. An SJW can malign and insult you all day, but when you respond in kind, they call you rude, aggressive, hateful, and so angry, why you need to be dismissed! This is a one way street. They do it to individuals, groups, and even entire political movements. SJWs will pick the most bat shit crazy person on the opposition’s side and use them as the poster child to tar the whole movement. And if one of those people doesn’t exist, they’ll fabricate one.

When you’ve reached that point, you’ve got nothing to lose. Mock them relentlessly. When you discover that you’re dealing with a Concern Troll, just skip ahead to where you are going to end up inevitably anyway. The onlookers will appreciate your honesty.

SJWs are predictable in their responses. When I inevitably get attacked for this blog post, it’ll be all about how I’m something-ist or something-phobic, and want to keep Group X out of Industry Y. It is all about dismissing their opponent. The truth is optional.

Their predictability makes them vulnerable. Their toolbox is limited. That is why they can’t just condemn Requires Hate’s dirty tricks, because they those same dirty tricks are all they’ve got to cow the opposition into silence.

One thing you need to realize before joining in this fight, the goal isn’t to convince the SJWs. Swaying the decided is a nearly insurmountable task. The real goal is to convince the undecided, and debate is a spectator sport. When one side has nothing but lies, slander, and intimidation, all you need to do is expose them for what they really are.

Above I talked about the eternal human theme of light vs. dark. You’ll note in most of those mentioned religious texts from all over the world light and truth go hand in hand. The darkness hides the truth. SJWs thrive on ignorance, bigotry, hate, and fear. It is time to turn the light on and watch the cockroaches scatter.

We see enough “passive aggressive” nonsense that it’s refreshing to see someone respond with active aggression. When someone honestly wants to debate (and there’s a chance that they might actually, you know, change their mind), let’s debate. If they want to fight unfairly, let’s fight for real. You sir, are a master of the mock-comment takedown, and it’s a pleasure reading your responses to trolls.

If you’re a Conservative Christian and don’t immediately support Same Sex Marriage, you’re an evil person who wants the Laws changed so that gays can legally be killed.

Oh, the “Liberals” were silent about the person expressly applied that thought to me.

The whole gay marriage thing is so irritating. If you don’t support something that (until the last couple of decades) hasn’t ever been legally recognized for the thousands of years we’ve had laws, we obviously want to lynch every gay person around for simply being alive. ARGH!

I’m in favor of gay marriage. I’m also appalled at the Left’s demonization of everyone who isn’t in favor of gay marriage. The sad thing is that the Left is very likely to doom the hopes of gay marriage because their strategy to gain it is so offensive to most of the population — including me.

You guys really do live in a whole different world don’t you? Did you miss the Lawrence decision? Not surprised. So we have this idiot that used to be Governor that wanted to be President that might be a prisoner named Rick Perry. He claims to have written a book called Fed up. In it he discusses the Lawrence decision where the Supremes overturned the Texas sodomy law and restored liberty to those of a different orientation. (Can I get an AMEN for liberty?)

Very well; I retract my statement that you were lying, except insofar as you used the present tense. You should have said “wanted to put gay people in jail” if you were being scrupulously honest. However, 2010 is recent enough that I’ll grant that the present tense is within the bounds of truth: some Texas conservatives probably still oppose the legalization of sodomy, even though the party has now removed that plank from its platform. (Some, clearly, do lean more libertarian and, while still opposing homosexuality in principle, do not think that it should be a criminal offense — if… Read more »

There is no special legal entitlement. That was removed by the supreme court decision and the application of the 14th amendment. Now people can marry who they love despite their orientation. And pretend libertarians try to figure out how to justify themselves. But it is just like the Hugos – they think it is wrong people have wrong fun. Same with reproductive rights. The religious right is welcome to their bizarre view of personhood. But they want to remove choice from those that differ from them. It isn’t the libertarian position.

If you find “I think all human beings should have the right to life, no matter how old or young they are, no matter how “useful” they are to society, and no matter who wants them to die” to be a “bizarre” view of personhood, I’m very thankful that I disagree with you. Who are you to decide that this human being doesn’t have the right to life because they’re less than nine months old?

I don’t hate to disabuse you of your misunderstandings, but people have always been able to marry who they love, regardless of sexual orientation. No one was stopping them before. The issue at hand is simply federal and state benefits, so you can stop pretending it was about love. And a bizarre view of personhood? No, the bizarre thing is that you think that there is some physiological process by which the birth canal imparts this abstract concept. And you can also stop pretending that “libertarian” is ideologically clear enough to survive some sort of purity test. Then again, this… Read more »

Oh son, you can pretend all you want that a government-issued piece of paper makes you married, but true marriage is a sacrament of the church and the government has damn-all to do with it.

@Doug Nope Old Sun. True Marriage is a matter of law. That’s why they issue marriage certificates. There is no 14th amendment ruling requiring any church to marry this one, that one or anyone.

I actually HAVE read the Lawrence decision, unlike you, and that matters not one whit to the fact you have rejected. Homosexuals have always been able to get married. Period. This was simply about state sanction. Now you can abuse the English language as much as you want, but that doesn’t change the objective facts of the matter.

Gnmay’s logic is like “people can always make their own money – they just can’t spend it”. That is to say – there is no logic. Congrats on reading the case and missing the point. Perhaps you might try Loving v. Virginia now. The objective facts is the legal state of matrimony is provided by law. Marriage is not a privilege but a fundamental right (see Loving) and all rights are inalienable and required to be recognized by the states to all citizens (see the 14th amendment). This is simply not a subject for debate. It is simply a fact.… Read more »

You’re confused again. I’m stating a fact. A statement of fact is not “logic”. That fact also remains unchanged, despite you desperately trying to move the goalposts with the silly semantical insertion of “matrimony”. Which still doesn’t change the underlying facts. Legally, homosexual couples could also enter into contracts which afforded them the same protections as heterosexual couplings. So again, since you seem to keep missing it – the whole gay marriage movement was simply about getting state and federal benefits that were not extended through state-sanctioned marriage. It wasn’t about “love”. I’m done repeating myself on that point as… Read more »

Misappropriation of the word “Homophobic”. ‘Homophobic’ means feeling about gay people the way some folks feel about slugs or spiders: unreasoning fear and hate. Disagreeing that being told you’re unable to open a joint checking account is the moral equivalent of Sandy Bull’s firehoses isn’t homophobic, or any kind of phobic at all.

I’m not sure that it’s a misappropriation of the word “Homophobic”.

IIRC The term was created by a Gay Rights Activist (not a Mental Health professional).

IMO it was created in order to claim that anybody who didn’t support his views was mentally ill.

IMO a word created for that purpose can’t be “misappropriated”.

That’s a good point, Paul. Misappropriation would imply that there is an appropriate use for the word, and since, as you say, it was created to demonize those who disagreed, it’s a loaded word that has no neutral meaning. If it really did mean a true phobia, then belittling people or hating on them by using the word would be quite mean. We don’t, after all, throw “claustrophobic” or “agoraphobic” at someone and expect that to be a legitimate argument or use it to insult someone for crossing some line.

*shrug* I have no doubt that, somewhere out there, there’s someone who gets the dry heaves just thinking about Boy George or the Indigo Girls (listening is another matter). The point is that allowing SJW’s to tar all dissenters with the stigma of psychological illness is to cede most of the argument. It’s like when Leftists whip out the ‘Racist!’ screech.

After a brief check of the history of the term, it appears that it originally meant “men who fear being considered homosexual”.

It became “general knowledge” as meaning “people who fear/dislike homosexuals” and apparently was used that way by gay rights activists.

So it doesn’t have a “good usage” in the minds of the general public.

What you’re basically seeing with SJWs is two groups. One group is your everyday racial and sexual bigot. They have perfected convoluted arguments about social justice to mask their racism and bigotry. The second group buys into these arguments as fighting oppression. From the outside it’s all the same – hate speech. There is no room for something like that in a genre like SFF. In fact it’s as odd a place to find something like that as I can imagine. These people have got to go; every damn last one of them. Anyone who supports them, or says “Thank… Read more »

The Social Justice Wannabes inevitably turn on their own. The problem isn’t just in the SF world, the SJW entryists are trying to take over organized atheism and skepticism. When decent people who agree with 95% of their political views don’t accept everything they say as dogma, they get smeared: http://www.michaelnugent.com/2014/11/04/chronology-of-misrepresentations-and-smears-in-the-atheist-movement-by-pz-myers-and-others/

Well, that’s the Marxist influence on the SJWs showing its true face, there. Self-criticism – and the occasional trumped-up show trial – is an important part of the dialectic. And if you can’t find something to criticize and abase yourself for before the collective, rest assured the collective will find some pretext to do it for you.

One of many reasons why I’m losing patience with all the “discussions” the Left wants to have on various social issues, and have settled for “Because FUCK YOU, that’s why” as an all-purpose response.

There is one better answer. It is “Because…” And then you grab their lapels and head butt them. Otherwise, gotta agree. There’s no point in “discussing” things with these people. You don’t discuss what’s for lunch with a pack of jackals. You convince them you’re not food. In that regard I think Larry has done the literary world a huge favor.

These folks don’t get that fact that for us, the issue isn’t bringing up topics like diversity, but using hate speech and blame to account for why those topics aren’t being addressed properly. For all the hysteria SJWs make using hundreds of thousands of words about SFF being an analogy to a homophobic, women-hating Jim Crow KKK, you notice not one of them has ever sat down and written a cogent fact-filled work to back up that assertion. The simple reason for that is they can’t. They can’t even come close. They’ve had to redefine the very meaning of words… Read more »

Fair point, I should have restricted that observation to the organized atheism and skepticism world. As an anarchist-leaning libertarian, I’ve never been aligned with the majority political views in that community, although some of the thought leaders like Penn Jillette are pretty sensible. It was always easy to see the authoritarian nature of many of the participants. What’s different now is that the SJW entryists have made a play for power by attempting to tear down the perceived leaders and smear their reputations. The greatest sin for the SJWs is to get out of lockstep with them. Richard Dawkins, Sam… Read more »

I began writing a book many moons ago, a fantasy novel where the main character had dark reddish skin, like an Indian. but culturally, that’s not where I was coming from at all. In the world I created, his race had been seafaring people for ages, so it made sense for them to have darker skin. I was scared to finish it at one time because I am a white man, and I was going to use his skin color as a way that his race was identified and persecuted, and we all know that white men never experience discrimination.… Read more »

Bottom line… anyone who is not you is an alien to you. Even if that alien is your twin brother. If we couldn’t imagine another point of view what could we write about at all? And since we can imagine humans who are not ourselves, the degree of difference between imagining your twin brother or a peasant child or an occult priest or a man or a woman is so blindingly small… anyone who tries to tell you that your human experience only applies to your twin should be laughed at in the face.

I’ve also seen a SJW claim the same and then follow up by adding that blacklisting people and secret mailing lists between publishers, journalists and other parts of the media are not bad or controversial because they’re omnipresent.

They hold themselves to very different standards than the rest of the world and take pride is said double standards.

What frightens me the most is that if they hadn’t unintentionally attacked me so many times I could have ended up as one of them.

Actually, they don’t have a problem with RH. You can’t call Jemisin a “half-savage” because of cultural insult seniority, but Jemisin can say whites are “diabolical” and harass them daily by cherry-picking news stories on her Twitter feed to make whites look bad. RH can say white men are a good analogy to buffaloes due to stupidity. In turn the SJWs got angry cuz someone back when called RH a “rabid animal,” cuz you can’t say that about a gay Asian woman. RH’s site has been the perfect barometer to measure SJW racist harassment by their sheer lack of reaction… Read more »

Hate to say it, but for the first half of my life I never really thought about the reasoning behind the light/dark conflict.

Then came Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X”. Good enough movie, but there’s a scene where a man shows Malcolm how racist the English language is by all the negative connotations for black, while white has many positive meanings.

In the movie theater, in the middle of watching the film, my only thought was “Isn’t that because wild dogs and the great cats have better night vision than we do?”

But that’s probably my whitey white y-chromosome talking.

It doesn’t help that they’re being told that they can’t be the judge of their own behavior. They’re essentially stepping into a minefield without the benefit of a fully functional metal detector. They know some places to avoid stepping, but not everywhere. Then, when they make the wrong step, they’re invariably blamed for the ensuing explosion as if they should have automatically known it was the wrong step.

No one can be the judge in their own case, but this criticism isn’t about BEHAVIOR, it’s about FEELINGS and THOUGHTS. The SJWs won’t bring up behavior much, because discussions of how people ought to act will trip them up and not let them get away with harming people that they hate.

The thing to remember about the SJWs os that they are nothing new. The phenomena is recorded at intervals throughout history (Savonarola, anyone?).

Each generation derided the ones that ran amok during the previous generations, and then falls for the whole mess all over again. I point this out because the SJWs believe they invented this crap.
