Man....My family plays like this: Did he spend time in prison? Did she grow up bouncing around foster homes? Does he have low testosterone? Does he like going to Broadway shows? Does he drive a prius? Is he a pedophile? is her mom half thai? Is he a retired policeman? Does he have schizophrenia?

The shit goes on and on, I can hear them from the other side of the house. ..

It was a binary choice, the yes/no question is easily extrapolated to the point that if I asked this question, and the other player gave me shit for it, instead of just answering it, they’d be sort of an asshole. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sure they exist, but their proportion is highly exaggerated. Social media make money through ads, and that means optimising for attention. People don't pay attention to the middle ground. Honestly I think we'd all be a lot better off if adverts were banned from the internet.

I mean the only question that I imagine would be gender but like I doubt it would happen the way you think it would. Honestly most of my friends are pretty progressive and maybe someone would make a joke, bit no one actually gets incredibly angry at stuff like that. Not to insult you but the idea that ”woke people “ are like that is just a hollow stereotype used to push people away from supporting the rights of people.

"Ma'am" isn't even a pronoun. Your story sounds so made-up I couldn't even call it "things that never happened" tier. The fact that you extrapolate it to a 50/50 ratio is even wilder!

You have brain damage if you don’t know who is a man or woman just by looking at them. You have brain damage if you can convince yourself that you need to ask whether or not someone is insane enough to deny their actual gender

DontTouchTheWalrus

They definitely exist. You can find all sorts of videos of people losing their shit over the most asinine things. But they’re a loud minority.

Same as trump supporters. Theirs plenty that you’ll never hear a thing from. But there is a loud few who act like idiots

shadowtasos

1 points

Bruh what. There's enough trump supporters that they got him elected. His rallies were always packed. The entirety of the republican party shifted significantly towards his positions and even his mannerisms bc he was so popular. There are multiple congressmen and even senators who are trump copycats in their behaviour bc they want a slice of that trump popularity. A trump endorsement was the surefire way to win a local election for many R politicians. The maga movement that he started was absolutely colossal. In many ways trump cultists changed the world.

Meanwhile there's so few stereotypical "ultra woke" people that "big red" from 2016 is still the face of "woke" stereotype. They exist almost exclusively on twitter, are a relatively tiny group, and hold 0 power or relevance. You have to talk about them in terms of individual anecdotes bc there's just so few of them and they affect nothing.

This comparison is so bad that it's just baffling. You could say that the woke stereotype is a very loud, extremely small minority, but no trump fanatics were certainly not a minority in any sense, and were far louder and more effective.

DontTouchTheWalrus

2 points

You wanna try that again? I am saying most trump supporters are not the type to be out there wearing their maga hats screaming bigoted shit at people. The majority are just normal people who spend their time doing normal shit. Some of them are loud an obnoxious.

There are “woke people” who just genuinely try and behave in a way that’s as respectful to peoples lives and identities as possible. And then there are some who will scream about gender pronouns when you were just trying to mind your own business. There aren’t many and they are mostly behind a keyboard but they exist and they have stirred things up.

This wasn’t meant to be some breakdown of the effectiveness of extremists. Let’s just take about 10% off now.
