It has a chilling effect to the extent that people who actually make decisions either agree with, cave to, or experience actual consequences from it. But let me ask you, how many things have suffered harm? It’s weird, right? Just recently Tekken put everyone in swim wear. No problems. Some segment of the population vocally battled DOA for years but they’re still making them and it appears at a glance that sales are adequate. They didn’t localize one of the volleyball games but I suspect that was a business decision and they just deflected blame by opportunistically pinning it on an existing fear.

And it doesn’t seem to matter which political direction the attack comes from. A ton of people b****ed about Black Panther—a billion f***ing dollars. Buffoons review bomb Captain Marvel—I bet it still makes bank. I see no chilling effect in practice. People are doing a lot of talking and there’s a lot of fear of what might happen but I haven’t seen a single product suffer from a concerted effort by the outrage sector of the Internet. In fact, how could it? One of the core failings of the outrage sector is they’re lazy and want to appear good rather than do good—that’s why they’re sarcastically called “social justice warriors.”

This feels like a case of mass hysteria based on a viral video. One kid eats a Tide pod and suddenly “Can you believe what kids are doing today?” Not realizing that if more kids start doing it—not even “when” but “if”—then it’s probably because of the feedback loop telling people that it’s what kids are doing.

@Will_Smith your opinions?


I somewhat agree with his tweet.

In this current age I don't feel people are "genuinely" offended by a large amount of stuff that goes on. From my personal experiences with family members, co-workers, and friends, they will wait to see if someone else gives the signal to be offended before they state it themselves.

The bleeding hearts usually wait to take their cue to be offended from someone in authority (politician, celebrity, a fellow SJW who is high on the totem pole).

Discrimination, classification, and bias will always exist regardless. Even if we were homogenized in Harada's example of tee shirts and jeans, we would start to rank and file ourselves. Those with faded jeans might be higher status than those with heavily dyed blues.

If you have a v neck collar, that might put you on the bottom of the status ladder.

Humans have an innate desire to sort and classify things, give them value. This is why I find it funny whenever some leftist states that they are "shocked that racism still exists in the year 20XX". It's about as naive as stating that "it is 2019, why are we still using currency to purchase goods?"


I was wandering if you wanted to become a family man?

The world's first anti-hero. I hated how McDonalds use to stop serving breakfast at 10:30. The only bad part about the 90's!

Mass Hysteria that ends up with people losing jobs, being deplatformed, and even physically attacked. All in the name of appeasing the SJW mob, a mob that will never be appeased because they only survive by finding new things to outrage about.

Mass hysteria is not harmless. Which is why I'm advocating not succumbing to it. People are letting fear rule them. That is dangerous.

Excellent. Stay true to core values. Don't give in to people who preach false platitudes. All these people want is for their awful, inhumane opinions to feel validated so they can stroke their own egos.
