I don't ever feel like these people are autistic. They are often polar opposites of typical autistic traits. They are bullies. We hate bullies. They are very manipulative, when that is something we are often incapable of being. They are comfortable in social settings, pushing their agendas and clashing with opponents. They are utterly dishonest when we are more honest on average than NTs. They are collectivists while we are often individualists and non-conformists.

Even when SJWs do the "meltdowns" they don't feel the same as autistic meltdowns. It's more like watching an adult behave like a child having a tantrum.


You'll find most of the traits you attribute to SJWs are very common amongst the social injustice warriors who obsessively need to attack anything resembling progress or decency. :wink:

Progress like segregation? A lot of anti SJWs I have seen hate that stuff. The only people I see calling for it are SJWs.


And yet it's their opponents who seem to think the Jim Crow era of official segregation and formalized institutional racism was 'the good ol' days'. :roll:

A good example of regressive approach would be calling for cultural sensitivity when dealing with inhumane cultural practices in one culture being while while focusing on trivial issues in another and arguing this is main source of oppression. Of course their social theories put he majority of blame on the "unoppressed" for all cultures ill. To dispute that woudl be to admit their social theories and power models are flawed.

On this I would agree. If there's a cultural practice you feel obliged to condemn when your people engage in it, one should be consistent and condemn it regardless of who's practising it. Conversely, if one is willing to make excuses for almost anything other peoples do, one should try to demonstrate that same 'cultural sensitivity' when commenting on peoples more similar to their own people.

That said, attempting to understand why a practice is still common in one culture when your own has largely abandoned it isn't the same as refusing to criticize the practice.

Actually no.

None of the those that argued against the demands of the University of Missouri protester and similar early SJW protest were remotely like that. On the contrary.

Such people so far as they partook in the counter arguement were late to the party.

This was the opposition these cry bullies were looking for. But it is has never been their main critic.

The bulk of the criticism has been about how illiberal these views are, so they wouldn't support equality as illiberal views.

Have you heard what has has happened to Evergreen State university?

I doubt you would argue that Professor Weinstein is pro Jim crow.

Because those are the only folks who are critical of so-called SJWs? Maybe they're the ones you most agree with, but that doesn't make them the only ones who count.

Wait a minute. Lots of people claim that MRAs, MGOTW, incels and alt-righters are autistic.

In other words, people just use the word "autistic" to describe anything that they don't like.

Or, the handful of folks under one of those labels that they've met appeared to be, and therefore they must all be.

Folks with ASDs make up less than 1% of the population, if they make up 2% of a given demographic they're over-represented, but clearly still not the majority of that demographic.

For the same reason fedora wearing, neckbearded, nerdy libertarian atheists who are obsessed with MLP:FIM (The predominant type of brony implied by many common perceptual observations to have Asperger's Syndrome or High Functioning Autism - an absolutely ridiculous and Argumentum Ad Nauseam stereotype), Austrian Economics and Ayn Rand (may or may not be MRA's/MGTOW), the clear answer is no (includes Third Wave Feminism). On the other hand, Psycho-social factors like helicopter and laissez-faire (lenient) parenting; Participation Trophy culture ("everyone get's a trophy" and "entitlement mentality" - millennial generation is it's biggest victim), egotistical materialism, victimology complexes, and environmental factors like Marxist social engineering (e.g. political correctness) in the mass media, gender bending chemicals in the biosphere, and non-alpha male phenotypes (no not all beta males are SJWs) are the most likely underlying contributing prerequisites to the development of an SJW mindset, especially juxtaposed with a socioeconomic upbringing from a middle class to upper middle class background (interconnection of psycho-social factors - keep mind that SJWism occurs in all socioeconomic backgrounds).

Autistic proclivities like social awkwardness and ineptitude, introversion, and heightened emotional sensitivities (attributed to underlying factors like sensory issues, mental illness, e.t.c) bear no relation to the SJW mindset at all, as these as-well as a great proportion of positive and negative autistic traits are polar opposites to the SJW ego framework, yet some people erroneously claim that these are homologous and this is just as bad as SJW's labeling MGTOW adherents, MRA's and the Alt Right as autistic simply for anything they disdain. As for Black and White thinking, this can pertain not just to SJWism but any formulation of collectivist ideology (esp identity politics and organized religions), new social movement, and multifarious isms-ologies-ocracies-ists-doctrines which always undermine one's individual consciousness; rationality and independent thinking spirit (the Hegelian Dialectical Divide & Conquer Ideological Collectivist Matrix I like to call it), for instance a good old Jonanism tactic by an SJW is to label anyone who dissents with even one of their views as "alt-right."

Considering how they have infiltrated university academia (and even the subdivisions of the scientific community that explicitly deals with the hard sciences); the comic books and video game industry (which ineluctably lead to the formation of Gamergate), as-well as many social and ideological communities/movements over the years (which can diversely range from Occupy Wall Street and even to Neopaganism), and the autistic pride & neurodiversity movements; the atheist/"freethinker"/"skeptic" communities (they are predominant on blogospheres like Atheism Plus, "RationalWiki" and "Freethought Blogs." "Reason Rally" and "March for Science" also fell victim to their institutionalized penetrations), nerd culture, geek fandoms (including the science fiction fandom, virtually all fan conventions, anime, and several cartoon fan-bases like Steven Universe, although some SJW's don't even like bronies) and self-proclaimed post-modernist "alternative lifestyle" subcultures in particular, I've come to the conclusion that the alienated, nerdy, eccentric, profoundly introverted, academically intellectual, gifted, non-conformist, libertarian individualist with Asperger Syndrome types (who are proud of their autistic neurotype identity, but fervently reject Social Justice and Neo-Marxist concepts such as myself) are probably their easiest targets to find and antagonize greatly.

The UK working class social democrats who vigorously fought for worker's rights and a single payer funded health-care system prior to the prime ministry of Clement Attlee would feel absolutely nauseated at witnessing their exhorted tribalist rants and anti-intellectualist psycho-babble about "cultural appropriation," "micro-aggressions" and all the rest.

NO.
SJW's go against logic.
