Which is really the most deplorable thing about SJWs. They're hell bent on dehumanizing everyone. They're out to cause harm.
Yep. Individuals are meaningless. The only thing that matters is your group membership. And anyone who disagrees with you on anything is solely because they hate your group.

A woman (Silverman) lost her job for having appeared in blackface.
Meanwhile an old white guy (Gov. Northam in Virginia) still has his job having done the same.

SJW's will nag big business over whatever happens to be their cause for the day.
By sheer weight of numbers a certain % of those businesses will eventually cave.

Unless there are more business owners/corporations that are willing to put their foot down, sooner or later things will snowball.

... A college professor in Iowa who declared his support for the far-left Antifa movement and came under fire for social media post in which he expressed a desire to hit President Trump with a bat--- resigned from his post on Tuesday.

Jeff Klinzman, an adjunct English professor at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, resigned Tuesday. The school said in a statement it accepted his resignation and has an instructor who will teach Klinzman's one course this semester. The decision to name a new instructor for Klinzman's course was based on securing a safe learning environment for students and staff, not on the professor's politics or his right to express his views ...

Try to be as inclusive as possible on a cartoon show that caters to benders and trannies, still manage to upset the nutjobs and have to issue an apology...
The co-creator of Netflix series Big Mouth, Andrew Goldberg, has apologised to fans for misrepresenting bisexuality and pansexuality in the show’s third season.

Big Mouth, a cartoon about teenagers going through puberty, has been widely praised for its unflinching take on sexual exploration, yet one episode in series three, which premiered on Friday, sparked a backlash from fans who criticised a new pansexual character’s definition of their orientation.

New student Ali (voiced by Ali Wong) introduces herself to her classmates saying she’s pansexual, which she defines as attraction that’s not limited by gender identity.

Nick Birch (voiced by co-creator Nick Kroll) asks if being pansexual is the same as being bisexual, the latter of which Ali rejects as “so binary”.

She says: “Some of you borings like tacos and some of you like burritos, and if you’re bisexual, you like tacos and burritos. But I’m saying I like tacos and burritos, and I could be into a taco that was born a burrito. Or a burrito that is transitioning into a taco.”

Viewers took issue with the fact that Ali implied bisexuals are not attracted to people unless they are cisgender, and that only pan people are attracted to those who are trans.

On Monday, Goldberg quote-tweeted the offending clip and addressed the backlash.

He wrote: “We missed the mark here with this definition of bisexuality vs. pansexuality, and my fellow creators and I sincerely apologise for making people feel misrepresented. Any time we try to define something as complex as human sexuality, it’s super challenging, and this time we could have done better.

“Thank you to the trans, pan, and bi communities for further opening our eyes to these important and complicated issues of representation. We are listening and we look forward to delving into all of this in future seasons.”

Netflix has renewed Big Mouth for three more seasons, as well as ordering its spin-off series Human Resources, a workplace comedy set in the world of the monsters from the show.

I’ve never subscribed to Netflix, and just learned of one more reason for not doing so.

This video clip is from a board of trustees meeting for the town of Oak Park, IL:
During a Monday board of trustees meeting on rewriting the town’s diversity statement, trustee Susan Buchanan flipped out after trustee Dan Moroney objected to language he thought might be offensive to the town police department. According to CBS 2, part of the statement read: “We work to break down systems of oppression.”

So whites are not allowed to hold or voice an opinion on anything that has to do with non-whites. :roll:

As info, Oak Park is a near western suburb of Chicago (it actually borders the west side of Chicago.

Oak Park is a "progressive" community.
(It was also "dry" (as in no alcohol sales) until 1973, when they allowed it to be served in hotels and restaurants with meals. The sale of alcohol in packaged goods was not allowed until 2002)

What is sort of cool about Oak Park is that the architect Frank Lloyd Wright used to have his studio there and there are quite a few buildings (homes, business, even a church) that were designed by Wright or his understudies.

Also, for about 9 years I lived in the town directly south of Oak Park, so I was pretty familiar with it.

Oak Park also has (or at least had) a total prohibition on gun ownership in the town. There was an incident that occurred where an Oak Park resident's apartment was broken into THREE times within a short period of time. They resident finally went out and purchased a handgun (legally purchased outside of Oak Park but not legal to have it IN Oak Park).
His apartment was broken into again one night when he was there. He shot and killed the intruder and there was a big outcry from the libtards in the town--they wanted him prosecuted. The Cook County States Attorney (the country prosecutor) ruled it the shooting as justifiable. The people in Oak Park were still pissed about it and actually tried to get the city attorney to fine the guy for having had a gun. IIRC, after some public backlash, they backed down on that.

Prof: SpongeBob perpetuates 'violent, racist' acts against indigenous people

A professor at the University of Washington recently published an article in an academic journal about the children's cartoon “SpongeBob SquarePants,” claiming it perpetuates a legacy of violence against the indigenous people of the Pacific.

The professor argues that the cartoon is involved in the "occupation" of native lands, and that the show participates in "cultural appropriation" by way of its island motif.

A university professor deemed the beloved cartoon "SpongeBob Squarepants" "violent," "racist," and "insidious" in a scholarly article.

University of Washington professor Holly Barker published her musings on the yellow sponge cartoon character and his deep-sea pals in an academic journal called The Contemporary Pacific: A Journal of Island Affairs, which features "readable" articles focused on "social, economic, political, ecological, and cultural topics."

In her article titled "Unsettling SpongeBob and the Legacies of Violence on Bikini Bottom," Barker's chief complaint hinges on her perception that the show's fictional setting of the town of Bikini Bottom is based on the nonfictional Bikini Atoll, a coral reef in the Marshall Islands used by the U.S. military for nuclear testing during the Cold War.

The indigenous people of the area were relocated during the testing, which eventually rendered the area uninhabitable due to residual radiation. Barker finds it unjust that SpongeBob and his pals be allowed to "occupy" the area when the nonfictional indigenous people of the area do not have the option to return to their homeland.

[RELATED: POLL: Majority of college students support DITCHING Columbus Day]

As an "American character," SpongeBob supposedly has the "privilege" of "not caring about the detonation of nuclear bombs." In order to demonstrate this, the professor quotes one of the show's writers, who said that the main character is "a guy who could get super-excited about a napkin but wouldn't care if there was an explosion outside."

"The detonations do not cause concern for the characters, as they did for the Bikinians, nor do they compromise SpongeBob's frequent activities, like visiting hamburger joints or the beach with friends," writes Barker.

SpongeBob and his friends supposedly perpetuate the past injustices against the indigenous people of Bikini Atoll through "SpongeBob's occupation and reclaiming" of the nonfictional location's lagoon. The setting of the show, Barker says, is "symbolic violence."

"Although the U.S. government removed the people of Bikini from the atoll above the surface, this does not give license to SpongeBob or anyone else, fictitious or otherwise, to occupy Bikini," insists Barker.

"SpongeBob’s presence on Bikini Bottom continues the violent and racist expulsion of Indigenous peoples from their lands (and in this case their cosmos) that enables U.S. hegemonic powers to extend their military and colonial interests in the postwar era,” she added.

Barker is also concerned with the "cultural appropriation of iconic Pacific Island representations" supposedly evident within Bikini Bottom's "token objectification of Oceania," taking particular issue with "buildings shaped like pineapples, Easter Island statues, and tikis." She also laments the "Hawaiian-shirt motifs" and sounds of steel guitar that are common themes on the children's show.

Barker also attempts to dissect and problematize the cartoon's theme song with academic phrasing.

"The first act of the song is to have children identify who resides in the pineapple house," she explains. "The children's response, repeated extensively throughout the song, affirms that the house and Bikini Bottom are the domain of SpongeBob."

"The song's directives, ensconced in humor, provide the viewer with an active role in defining Bikini Bottom as a place of nonsense, as the audience is instructed 'If nautical nonsense be something you wish...drop on the deck and flop like a fish.’"

By participating in the theme song sing-a-long, Barker says "the viewer becomes an unwitting participant in the co-opting of Bikini's story and the exclusion of the Bikinian people."

While Barker admits that the show's creators likely did not have "U.S. colonialism" in mind while developing the cartoon, she calls it "disturbing" that they did not realize that "Bikini Bottom and Bikini Atoll were not theirs for the taking." Consequently, Barker suggests that "millions of children" have "become acculturated to an ideology that includes the US character SpongeBob residing on another people’s homeland.”

In this way, colonialism is supposedly "produced, reproduced, and normalized" through the cartoon

As if fictionally "occupying" nonfictional land was not enough, Barker also accuses the cartoon of being biased against women.

The professor complains that "all of the main characters on the show are male," except for Sandy Cheeks the squirrel, whom she suggests was only created in order to boost the gender diversity of the show.

"The name 'Bob' represents the everyday man, a common American male, much like a 'Joe,'" Barker observes, concluding that "our gaze into the world of Bikini Bottom, as well as the surface of Bikini, is thus filtered through the activities of men.”

Barker concludes her article by insisting that even though SpongeBob's writers likely did not mean "to infuse a children's show with racist, violent colonial practices," the show is part of a larger issue, an "insidious practice of disappearing Indigenous communities."

“We should be uncomfortable with a hamburger-loving American community’s occupation of Bikini’s lagoon and the ways that it erodes every aspect of sovereignty.”

Campus Reform reached out to Barker for further comment but did not receive a response in time for publication.
