We really should have an all-encompassing thread for cases where SJW subsets clash with each other over who can be the most victimized.  It seems to happen more and more recently as victim groups get smaller and the pecking order becomes opaque.
 
During the London Pride parade, lesbians protested the inclusion of trans-women (I can never figure out of a man who transitions to woman is a trans-woman or a trans-man), causing the start of the parade to be delayed for 10 minutes.  Why?  Because insanity, that's why.
 
Other activists from groups calling themselves Get The L Out, Object, Mayday 4 Women, Critical Sisters and Lesbian Rights Alliance, handed out pamphlets along the parade route, also claiming that the Pride event's expanding scope left lesbians marginalized and coerced into believing their sexual preferences were abhorrent. One flier read, "The trans movement is … coercing lesbians to have sex with men. We firmly condemn this vicious form of anti-lesbianism disguised as progress."

Another activist told reporters that, "Transgenderism is conversion therapy. Conversion therapy is wrong."

She continued, "Only women can be lesbians. A man who has surgery can never be a lesbian."...

"We don’t want any kind of penis in our bedroom," an activist told media. "I’m really sad I have to reassert this again."

Isn`t that TERF - Trans-exclusionary radical feminism ?

OT: I believe I really don`t give too much of a shit because I have read too many old timey European newspaper articles where mostly the religious and other conservative institutions outright tried to ban wrestling (and stuff like Porky Pig :D ) because THINK OF THE CHILDREN. In Germany it lead to the ban of minors in arenas, in Mexico City it lead to the cancellation of a 1950s kinda-TV promotion. I can't think of a single SJW-driven instance which fucked with the business even remotely comparable. So my attitude towards these stories is rather dismissive.

Right. They just fuck with individuals -- false accusations, firings over innocuous comments, making everyone around them miserable -- instead of companies.

I've seen that shit go the other way. My wife was sexually harrassed by her boss at her former company. This guy had been cited for it before with other women, but management did shit all about it. The company heirarchy continued to let him carry on with this shit without penalty. It got to the point where after 1 year of this shit, she went back to her old employer. I had to be very careful of what I said to this guy based on the fact that I"m not a citizen, but a Permanent Resident, and have more dire consequences if something elevated to the point of me threatening him.

No one is disputing that this shit happens a lot.  And not just the sexual harassment, but general workplace bullying and unprofessional behavior that I've personally seen go unaddressed for years.  I've seen just about everything.  Managers calling assistants stupid, throwing shoes at them, shouting matches in the corridors, and the whole nine yards. 

This might surprise some people here, but I don't even fucking curse at work, and don't really like it when others do it.  It's different if I'm chatting with people I'm friendly with in the kitchen, but I get turned off by some of the casual cursing by people I barely know in meetings or in front of clients.  It's unprofessional. 

All of this shit should absolutely be addressed. But obviously you address things in degrees and with proportionality and not give everyone the death sentence for every little thing.  Some people who do this shit have no track record so I think, "Well she must be having a bad day" and that's that.  Others, you roll your eyes and think, "That cunt is at it again, when is someone going to say something to her?" 

On the sexual harassment front, telling a dirty joke once should not be the same thing as asking a girl who's clearly not interested to fuck you every day for 3 years until she finally quits.  The fact that some can't distinguish between the two is absurd.

My wife was harassed and stalked by a guy in the early 2's. Despite me knowing the cops well there (the previous place I lived), they said they couldn't do anything unless he actually committed a crime.

I won't go into any more details. The situation was resolved.

Scarlett Johansson has been cast as a transgender man in an upcoming movie called Rub and Tug.  For her troubles, the trans lobby has put her in the cross hairs.  Why?  Because straight actors have no right to act in the role of a transsexual.  The role should have gone to a trans actor or actress.  In the Business Insider, columnist Daniella Greenbaum published an article stating that any backlash against Johansson was unwarranted since the entire point of making a movie is to have people pretend they're someone or something they're not.  The usual pack of braying jackasses took umbrage to Greenbaum's piece and of course the brave editors at her magazine scotched her article in response.  Thankfully, she had enough brains to tell them to go fuck themselves and resigned from the magazine, but it's yet another scalp claimed by the Genital Nazis.  No word yet on whether homos have to now cease playing straight characters.

Animal House turns 40 this summer and starched prudes on the left are getting ready to burn it like so many Beatles albums after John's "Bigger than Jesus" comment.

Meh. The first two articles are pretty balanced in my opinion (despite the clickbait headline of the Vice piece.) There are definitely things to be said about how movies of the past are seen today, especially for anyone who might watch them with no context. I'm pretty sure every black and white movie has a man slapping a hysterical woman in the face. The USA Today story is shit though. By their rules, we'd have to throw away all of our media every three months to avoid offending the newly offended.

The problem is that their rules will become everyone's rules.  You will be made to care.  This problem is certainly trending toward their POV.

I just read yesterday that there's talk about renaming Austin, Texas because Stephen F. Austin owned slaves. Austin was a general prick, but if we changed the name of every city named after a slaveholder then we'd have to change most of them, starting with Washington D.C.

And isn't the greater punishment for Austin the fact that his name is no longer associated with him but is now synonymous with a liberal mecca in the middle of Texas? Liberals should get a kick out of that, if they had any sense of humor and irony at all.

Take a break from internet, buddy. The world is being run by the crazy right, not the crazy left. Getting liberals to do anything apart from whine and bitch about stuff is like herding cats. You can do and say exactly what you want as long as you aren't tying to sell entertainment.
