Should never. Well, I am not sure I agree with that. And will probably struggle with it if it were ever to come to pass. But I don't see it. Leveling the playing field necessarily means that the field can no longer tolerate the acceptance and endorsement of privileged that the majority, myself included, hold. So long as we tolerate racial profiling, police brutality in minority communities and turn a blind eye. So long as we are still more angry at a visible athlete for making a statement than we are at the horror that he is peacefully protesting, we are not there. And we are not at risk of getting there any time soon.

I think this is just, all or none rhetoric that people on the left so often use.

I can respond with rhetoric too. Unfortunately, the guy who supports the rights of the homosexual, wants to violate my rights by stealing what is mine. The homophobe, as you put it, does not want to steal my possessions, or at the very least, wants to steal a lot less. The guy who supports the rights of the homosexual, wants to bring people into the country, some of whom are dangerous, some of whom don't believe in my rights, or the rights of homosexuals for that matter, and all of whom will require him to steal more from me. The homophobe wants to keep them out.

I could go on, but I think you get my drift.

There are republicans who are gay like The Log Cabin Republicans. I bet you think they don't care as well?

So that’s a no on specific examples?

If you think calling someone a social justice warrior is an insult, you might consider that it is actually you who is feeling shame.

If there are specific cases of going too far, fight against those. But casting the entire notion of fighting for justice as a bad thing? Seriously?

The truth is they dont fight for anything.they just get hurt for everything and lash out in response. Why do they want to get thier ideas or actions get "accepted" by everyone else?

People shoild remember that this "very conservative or fundamentalist " america has welcomed more immigrants from outside than any other nation. I seem to be attacking them for their views but my donations always go to orgs like dav, star of hope, and local school/churches than any "cool" things that talks about change.
