You Mr. Point.

I think and operate independent of SJW movements (which I loathe and whom I believe would not be offering you 1/10th the reasoned discourse I am).

I do really think that the majority of people that use the word '***got' as an insult are operating on a social structure that's based in masculine insecurity, i.e., toxic masculinity. And I know in some subcultures it would be difficult and uncomfortable (or at least take some clever social skills) to not be like that.

I was raised a commercial fisherman out of small fishing town in Alaska, which is very much that kind of culture. I'm now a PhD student studying theoretical neuroscience abroad in liberal Ontario, Canada. It was a long transition period for me, and maybe being an actual adult with two daughters had a lot to do with it, but I can see the legitimate struggles underlying SJW movements. I just don't care for the methods, or really believe in methods at all; sociological state of a culture is emergent and the law of unintended consequences will make Trump president if you try too hard to push people in one direction.

That big wall of text was because your comment has that underlying tone about this being a 'free speech vs. civil rights' matter. Which is a tired dichotomy *yawn*. I'm going to go make Boxing Day dinner now.
The irony is that you are indeed being a SJW but you are in the right

"loudly judging you in a social context" it's the definition as it pertains to the internet

nothing wrong with SJW's, free speech goes both ways

i actually agree with a lot of what Xurtio has said tbh. i stopped using the word irl after I turned like 14. i didn't say it for the longest time online either but after coming to this site and seeing it so much it just naturally became a part of my vocabulary. im not really against or for the use of the word, but I certainly don't think anyone here uses it with the intent to harm others.

To expand on what I said earlier, I'm more likely to tell a racist joke around my black coworkers because it's all in good fun and they'll come right back with a cracker joke, but I wouldn't tell a homophobic joke cause there's a certain homophobic atmosphere with, not all, but certain people there and I wouldn't want to associate with that. Whereas I don't feel that at all here so I don't feel the same distaste for throwing around "***got".

If you use that definition, calling someone ***got is being an sjw. I guess a def of sjw is in order though. Imo, it is people who indignantly cause harm on the iternet under the banner of social justice. Thus, "warrior", as attacking is involved.

Don't you just have it set to auto-subscribe to threads that you post in?
