Here's an interesting video about the outrage about fake SJW outrage - which I'm calling #fakerage from now on.



"You could sell these kids sand in the desert if you told them SJWs didn't like it."
From the video:
So why do they [alt-right/gamergate videographer boys, including Tim Pool] endlessly attack this nebulous idea of SJWs? It's because the narrative they've built needs enemies, and SJWs are good and useful enemies. Anyone can be one; there's no criteria for it other than doing something that anti-SJWs don't like, such as not being sufficiently excited about a video game trailer. SJWs are crazed, mindless opponents who are numberless, can turn up anywhere and are always easily defeated, while somehow simultaneously being the puppetmasters behind a conspiracy to destroy western civilisation. 'SWJs hate us for being straight white males and thus we never have to feel bad about fighting them. They hate us just because, so our hatred of them is justified.' It's a narrative of victimisation. They want to be under attack but they don't ever want to actually risk being beaten. So they make up an easy enemy to fight. And then to maintain the illusion they just have to selectively turn their brains off every now and then and watch a man complain to 700,000 people that a tweet with two likes on it is taking something too seriously.
Damn SJW NPCs!! ;ob;

He apparently made one of the nearly 50 'those stupid SJW snowflakes are all upset about this video game trailer' videos that are discussed in the Shaun video that Brian Peacock posted. I don't know if he was early or late to the absurd pile-on, but I'm sure he 'explained the situation with depth and nuance'. :cheer:

Yeah, 'we're going to charge whitey double' is some bullshit.

Screw This Whole 'My Girlfriend Isn't Hungry' Menu Trend

It’s become a trope that, when a heterosexual couple is out on a date, the woman might say she’s not that hungry, but proceed to eat some of the man’s food. It seems innocent enough, but complaints that these girlfriends must be pulling one over on their boyfriends to snag commitment-free nachos has proliferated to a point where restaurants across the country are offering dishes and menus for the “not hungry” date.

Mama D’s in Little Rock, Arkansas is the latest restaurant to go viral for the menu addition. The $4.25 “My Girlfriend Is Not Hungry” special gives you the option of adding extra fries, wings, or cheese sticks to your already existing meal. In another light, it would be a lovely way to offer couples a way to split food on the cheap, but it’s framed as a burden a man on a date must endure for... sex later? The ability to joke about her appetite on social media?

I must admit that, when we go for a pub meal, and I order steak and chips, and Bron has something like a vegetable stir-fry, she does have a tendency to steal my chips... :nono:
