Cognitive dissonance is a fun thing.
Understand that your first statement does not jibe with this one. You are focusing only on the fringe of one movement while handwaving the fringe of the other movement. This is not a good thing, you are treating the fringe of one side to be the bulk of their opinion while just pretending the opposition doesn't have the exact same problem. This is how partisanship happens, and this is how conformation bias works.Anti-SJWs mean well, but... Well. Some are racist, facist and etc etc. A few bad apples ruins the bunch and so on.
Political correctness is a good and useful tool, especially within the workplace and with groups of people you do not know. Political correctness, is quite simply polite speech, it is understanding when and where it is appropriate to say certain things and when you should shut up. I live and work in Indiana, in an environment that is very much not PC by any stretch of the imagination and I have listened to more than one racially charged rant full of racial slurs. It is goddamned awkward at best, and attempting to tell them to stop only makes the situation worse.Also screw PC. Literally. Poltical correctness is stupid. Say what you want when you want, then deal with anything after.
Political correctness controlled and ordained by the goverment is stupid and unconstitutional, political correctness as a societal understanding of what you should and shouldn't say while in the workplace is good. Because that is all political correctness is, knowing when and where it would be appropriate to speak and about what.
The people on the hard left who want it to be more than that are fools, as are the people on the hard right who also try to make it out to be more than it is. It is simply a collection of speech and ideas which society as a whole deems inappropriate when spoken in the wrong place. It is politically correct to not spout racial slurs, it is politically correct to not deny the holocaust.
She ruined gaming with critical theory on YouTube? Well ain't that the most impressive thing I have heard all week. No, Anita hasn't ruined gaming by talking about it on YouTube. If the industry were so weak that it could be ruined so easily, I don't know how it even made it this far.They also ruin a lot of things, like gaming because of a certain Anita say stupid things.
