I’ve made it clear that I follow the SJW vs anti SJW conflict happening online, and have been vocally against feminism and the politically correct dogma involved. As feminism’s credibility went down the drain as it crumbles under the arrogance. Mainly due to the refusal to accept any decent or criticism when it comes to subjects like: rape culture, the gender wage gap, the influence of the patriarchy and the legitimacy of the dictionary definition of feminism. As the stereotype of a feminist being an ugly, fat bitch with an axe to grind at men slowly becomes the standard image of the movement.
I bring this up as Laci Green is making waves within the anti-SJW community for saying something smart. In her recent video ‘Taking The Red Pill’ (referring to The Matrix, the phrase meaning that finally see the world as flawed or not as perfect as you thought) expressing how many within the social justice movement need to exchange dialogue with detractors; as she has expressed the desire to speak with those does and doesn’t agree with. And after speaking with people like Blaire White and Jeff Holiday, she’s realised that many of the people she has spent years labelling as bigots and misogynist may actually have valid arguments; the unwillingness of feminism to listen to critics by ordering their shut down as a response being one of them.
Seriously, last week if you were to type her name into YouTube, you would find video after video by people like Sargon, Tl;DR and Undooomed calling her an idiot. But now the search results are about her recent video.
I’ll admit I’ve taken jabs at Laci in the past, but I must say I’m actually proud of her, and not just because people like me get to have our ” I bloody told you so” moment. While she hasn’t out right disregarded her beliefs about feminism as a whole while wearing a MAGA hat; but to have someone build bridges after years of name calling is at least worth a thumbs up on her video. And this is coming from a jaded former subscriber of her’s. Granted a debate between and SJW and someone they’ve labelled a bigot….ugh, I mean criticised is not a new thing; Sargon has done that multiple times. But given how it was Laci that threw her gauntlet to Chat with Blaire, and has offered the chance to interact with more people with open arms; that is so good to hear.
You see while this community on YouTube is united against feminism and social justice, it’s very diverse interns of what the people actually believe. You have conservatives like Computing Forever, liberals like The Amazing Atheist, Trump supporters like Naked Ape while Thunderfoot is openly against him and the alt-right. Content creators diverse in world views, but are more than willing to speak and are not afraid of saying: “I think your wrong” and reflect upon the public actions of an individual; type Atheism is Unstoppable onto YouTube to see what i mean. Either way many are cheering for Laci’s somewhat of a departure from the community that openly practices the opposite.
Naturally this video was going to have responses from both sides. Despite skepticism coming from years of her throwing the race and sex card, it has gained an overwhelming positive response from the anti-sjws; with many like Sargon of Akkad wanting to take Laci’s offer to debate her. And then you have soon to be former allies loosing their shit in the most ridiculously self-awareness lacking display of rage since the EDL response to Lee Rigby’s death. “What’s that? We should open conversations with those who mock our words on a hourly basis? “No! We need to block them out entirely. #Triggered! Traitor!”
Seriously, that’s been her Twitter for the past couple of days or so. While there are numerous channels and Tweets going into melt down; I would like to comment upon the most cited example of this. That being the reactions of Steve Shives. For this who don’t know, Steve is a You Tuber that became well-known back when the skeptic community was the atheist community nearly a decade ago. And everyone loved him, I even subscribed to him at one point. So what happened? Well he went down the same path Laci did back in the early twenty tens. Both were popular You Tubers loved for their smart and entertaining videos. However both downed the feminism kool aid and preaching the gospel of Social Justice; and much like a religious leader, anyone with objections would be thrown out due to being unworthy in the eyes of the course.
Laci produced nonsense about gender spectrums, the oppression of women in the first world and actively spoke for the removal of due process for rape accusations. While Steve bought every feminist taking point that was already rendered bull crap with a quick google search: such as rape culture and the wage gap. With his response constantly being to block those with a pin that are standing next to his bubble. I’m serious, go to his Twitter right now and see if you’re blocked….I know right! His openly done so many times to the point that not only is he a meme; and there is even a hashtag. #blockedbysteve.
Steve, since Laci’s video has been ranting and roaring like a true british sailor, as he has been proving Laci right; in the sense that people who share similar world views are more likely to call for the banning of someone, because speaking to them is far too difficult. If your interested Bearing shows the entire Twitter conversation if your interested, as Steve claims that blocking people and silencing ideas isn’t censorship, but rather a stren showing how someone and their ideas is not exceptable within the wide You Tube community that I agree with.
So yes, i am happy over the Laci’s decision to publish the red pill video, and I do hope she keeps to her promise of further talking with anti-SJWs and anti feminist. Not just to finally show her how flawed her statements were, not just to trigger people like Steve by having her buddy up with the people they rant about on a minutely basis. But because discussions have kept this part of You Tube active, how else did you think the term triggered become a meme? Hell the fact that many of the most popular people started making videos during the earliest years of You Tube prove it.
Especially when many have been predicting 2017 to be the year of the death of social justice. Honestly in a time where most the world still believes the Russia gate scandal with Trump despite the found evidence being amounted in the minus digits; and half of my Facebook friends list is planning to vote for a communist Jedi as prime minister on the promise of free shit; that day won’t come in my life time. That said I do agree with some who have claimed Laci’s turn was due to social justice as a financial path on You Tube, is laughable when not on mainstream television. The logic going that, if she can get a big named skeptic You Tuber on a live stream, that user’s subscribers would come to watch her, purely to see what she says next. I don’t personally buy that, however I do see the logic. As sites like Everyday Feminism are shutting down, and social justice propaganda sites such as Buzzfeed, MTV and Jezebel are funded by big companies, who clearly don’t give a fourth of a damn of whether it’s well received. Mind you, You Tube is a site where the most views means you’re the most popular in the sense that a lot of people know your name. How else did you think The Annoying Orange got his own god damn TV show?!
In closing: Laci, as a former subscriber who abandoned you due to your absurd comments, and your refusal to listen back to us; as you blindly believe your own nonsense. I’m glad your finally starting to turn a new leaf, and any direction change from where you were last year, yeah this will do.
Thank you for your time.
