IF Men acted like FEMINISTS!
What if men acted like feminists? What if Anita Sarkeesian's cherry-picking, victimhood mentality, and flat-out dishonesty were applied by men to how other men are portrayed in the media? It would probably be exactly like this parody by Thunderf00t: IF Men acted like FEMINISTS! And as an added bonus, here is a video of the Top 10 Female Protagonists in Video Games (Because half of them would probably be dismissed by Anita as "sexist caricatures"!): Top 10 Female Protagonists in Video Games

Marine Veteran Has A Message For College Students And Their 'Trauma' And It's AWESOMESAUCE

Are you sick of whiny little college students complaining about everything under the sun too?

Oh, good.

College students (the liberal ones, anyway) are really good at finding things to be offended over. Apparently, everything is psychologically damaging, whether it's a speaker they don’t like or the American flag being displayed. (Because that’s hate speech, FYI.)

These days, students experience such “trauma” that they demand “safe spaces.” And in case you didn’t know, these come in one of two forms. In the first, students can go to this distinct area where they won’t get their precious feeeeeelings hurt. It's equipped with "cookies, coloring books, bubbles, Play-Doh, calming music, pillows, blankets, and a video of puppies."

The second “safe space” I’ve heard about is one that bans people (aka white people) who haven’t been “racialized.” Because the presence of people with “power” and “privilege” is too much to bear. Because segregation is just cool like that.

Obviously, it’s a bunch of crap. But then I read this article on The Federalist by Chris Hernandez, who’s a police officer and Marine veteran, currently serving as a National Guard soldier. According to his bio, he’s a “combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan with over two decades of military service.”

He wrote a fabulous piece about REAL trauma and psychological damage. He concluded that our definition of “trauma” (to the fragile liberal flowers) is WAY off.

I’ve experienced trauma myself. I don’t know how many murder scenes I’ve worked as a police officer. I remember the shock I felt when I walked up to a car after a seemingly minor accident and saw a two-year-old’s head lying on the floorboard. I stood helplessly outside a burning house as a 92-year-old woman died inside, while her son screamed hysterically beside me. For years after my time as a soldier in Iraq, I’d have a startle response if I unexpectedly saw a flash, like from a camera, in my peripheral vision (it reminded me of flashes from roadside bombs). Soldiers near me were shot, burned, or killed by weather in Afghanistan.

Yet our fragile snowflakes experience “trauma” when someone disagrees with their worldview. For crying out loud, feminists experience “trauma” when someone claps their hands.

However, I’ve recently discovered my definition of trauma is wrong. Trauma now seems to be pretty much anything that bothers anyone, in any way, ever. And the worst “trauma” seems to come not from horrible brushes with death like I described above; instead, they’re the result of racism and discrimination.

As Hernandez points out, colleges are liberal cesspools of manufactured sensitivity. A white teacher touching a black student’s arm? Trauma. Professors expecting grammatically correct papers? Trauma.

So what’s a fragile flower to do? Hernandez has the best answer I’ve ever heard.

F*** your trauma.

Yes, f*** your trauma. My sympathy for your suffering, whether that suffering was real or imaginary, ended when you demanded I change my life to avoid bringing up your bad memories. You don’t seem to have figured this out, but there is no “I must never be reminded of a negative experience” expectation in any culture anywhere on earth.

If your psyche is so fragile you fall apart when someone inadvertently reminds you of “trauma,” especially if that trauma consisted of you overreacting to a self-interpreted racial slur, you need therapy. You belong on a psychiatrist’s couch, not in college dictating what the rest of society can’t do, say, or think. Get your own head right before you try to run other people’s lives. If you expect everyone around you to cater to your neurosis, forever, you’re what I’d call a “failure at life,” doomed to perpetual disappointment.

BOOM. God bless him for his service, speaking the truth and being an all around badass.

Oh Hey! And the soldier in question is not 'white' white. That's GOT to make it worse for the racialists / racists / SJWs / leftists / socialists. Next thing you know, someone will be worshipping che... oh, wait, racialist / racists / SJWs / leftists / socialists already do  <da:thumb id="510121747"/>

I honestly don't know what my situation is at the moment. The last few weeks have been very bad, and I don't know what the next few weeks will bring. It all started with a rotator-cuff tear in my left shoulder...

I will continue to post from time to time, but the articles I have long intended are going to be weeks in the working. Needless to say, as always, there is a LOT more going on than the 'man-made' crowd wants you to know- and that includes the ever-compliant MSM. Hell, the MSM is more and more making a Point of not telling you the truth.

Thank you Sir. The world is not a safe space. The world will not bow to whiny crybabies. These SJWs are just very confused,very idiotic,very pathetic human beings (and I use the term human beings very loosely).

Having to deal with several of them here on DA, I quite understand your usage of the term!
Scavenger1234567890's avatar
It is kind of hard to call SJWs human when they refuse to listen to anyone but themselves and think themselves the authority on anything.

I'm not going to hide it: I am a Liberal college student. I care about social justice and I care about people having the rights they deserve. However, I do not support SJWs and their warped ideas of how the world should be. I don't like those types of people and I don't like what they stand for. They're delusional, petty, and sad people who only care about themselves. They pretend to give a flying frick about social justice and equality, when what they preach is really just about the opposite. These saps think that everything is offensive, and everything is traumatic. They think that it's traumatic when someone says "God bless you" to someone who just sneezed. They claim that they're trying to make the world a better place, when the world is really just better off without them and their mindset.

Well there is 'liberal' and there is 'classical liberal.' A classical liberal nowadays would be considered somewhat right of center- which is where I place myself. You come across as a sensible person and that suits me just fine :D
I like your reasoning (and reasoning is something SJWs hate). Consider your comment featured.

You might want to consider a different title.  I clicked on this thinking you were going to blast PTSD sufferers.

KajmHobbyist Writer
You're the second person to say that- the first, one of the very people you mention. His / her comment is above yours somewhere, it is very well written!

However the piece was originally titled by the person who used the phrase. I just copied it down.

I actually joined dA long before I was a tumblrite, so it's been a little rough, but I don't agree with the delegitimization of people who have real issues by idiots.

I have to say that, unfortunately, is the road the most radicalized are going down- demean and damage even those they claim to be supporting, just to 'win' the debate. From what I have seen of late, they are starting to attack their own 'leadership' for not being as radical as they are... while part of me hopes there is a Collapse in that kind of thinking coming, I also fear that it is going to also bring on a couple of bad decades for everyone.

Well, it is going down from what I hear. People are starting to realize that most sjws are idiots.

Well, here it is, three years later, and they've doubled down.
Now we have Antifa.
So how did Tumblr react?

KajmHobbyist Writer
*g* Good! In my opinion, SJWs are cyber-bullies. I've been the subject of one of them for several years- I will likely never see an apology from him, but I've fought back hard and he doesn't frequent DA now anywhere near as much as he used to.

huh, im now more convince that im one of the few liberals who are truly open minded and can take a couple of jokes
Cat-man-dancing's avatar
Nah, you're not alone. There are quite a few decent Liberals out there who are open minded and funny.
It only looks bad because it's the shrill, hateful ones that get all of the attention.
The ones who live by the motto, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease".
Their problem is that today we have a throwaway culture: The squeaky wheel gets removed and discarded.
We can only hope.

thank god.... I was starting to freak out a little

and also, you just describe me with the first sentence XD

Always glad to help. It costs me little, it benefits you, hey, we both win!

You know when I saw the title, I was confused. I thought he was talking against those diagnosised with PSTD. Ha silly me.

Well I think (not sure) one of the very group you mention, also commented here, did you see it?
