(Warning: This article is going to be all about feelings. If it helps, it’ll be about social justice warriors and their feelings, and it’ll also tell you how to use their feelings against them, so you might want to read it anyway.)
So we talk about social justice warriors, the Frankfurt School and their supposedly nihilistic philosophical underpinnings without talking about the fuel that makes the SJW machine run-feelings.
I will go so far as to say that an SJW’s belief in the rightness of their own feelings will put your own faith in whatever it is you believe in -- Jesus, the free market, the Toronto Blue Jays -- to shame.
We like to believe the SJW is faking when they claim to be triggered by something we find harmless, but what else could you expect from people who have been raised in a bubble and have been told their feelings were special and important since Day One?
Pain or failure actually is equivalent to going through the Vietnam War for them, just like (insert whatever social infraction here) is literally rape.
It therefore follows that not being particularly bothered by the fact that buildings aren’t built with a ratio of two women’s bathrooms to every one men’s bathroom, or the fact that guys like to spread out on public transit is like telling Grampy that Korea wasn’t that big of a deal because it wasn’t a world war.
You have to believe them because they are in intolerable pain and have all of the feels.
We have feelings too, and sometimes our feelings get the better of us. For example, Justin Trudeau isn’t really a secret Muslim, Obama is not the Devil, and Kathleen Wynne isn’t trying to make your kids turn gay, but we’ve all maybe believed those things for a second or two. For an SJW, it’s all feelings, all the time. Facts we keep in the forefront of our minds and that we take for granted, such as “If you keep spending money without making it, you’ll go into debt” and “The government kind of sucks at managing things” and “Blaming white people for things they weren’t personally responsible for will make them mad at you” infuriate them because those facts contradict their feelings.
If someone tells you that they "feel" that vaccines cause autism, or that we should keep raising the minimum wage, or that ISIS is not a threat, you can’t win the argument unless you’re comfortable with (potentially) thousands of people calling you a monster who doesn’t care about other people’s feelings. Understandably, not everyone is comfortable with this, since not everyone can be Donald Trump.
However, the thing about being driven entirely by your feelings is that it doesn’t make you terribly sensitive to the feelings of others. This is how we get NDP candidates with degrees in social justice who end up making Auschwitz jokes.
More interestingly, however, this creates unique situations where different subsections of the SJW universe trigger each other. White feminists are insensitive to the concerns of black feminists, lesbians are marginalized at Pride Parades by sexist gay men, the disabled are attacked for “using their disability as an excuse”, and most attempts to bridge these gaps are treated with suspicion at best.
Those who wish to fight back against the SJW’s must become aware of these pre-existing divisions and use them effectively. Calmly pointing out how the SJW is not following the rules they force everyone else to abide by is a sure way to win the argument, and convince bystanders of the rightness of your cause besides.
