I have something to add to the Berserk Button entry:

  • Hurting or threatening to hurt children is a good way to make a Tumblr blogger hate you. And that's if you're lucky.

That's not really a Berserk Button.

I think these should be added:
  • (add to Berserk Button) Cultural reappropriation, for a lot of SJWs. This includes wearing dreadlocks or bindis by white people. While the former have been worn by peoples from India all the way to Africa (and, by extention, the Caribbeans) and bindis are now worn throughout the entire Indian subcontinent regardless of age, sex, or creed, SJWs often point out that people from the cultures dreadlocks and bindis originated in face far harsher consequences (being deemed ‘unprofessional’ or prone to racist remarks) compared to white people doing it.
  • Stealth Parody: Many Trolls pretend to be extreme SJWs. They’re fairly obvious to spot—they often use as many labels as possible, often including mutually exclusive ones and absurd ones (‘plantkin’), and exaggerate real points of contention to illogical extremes (such as claiming that white people learning Spanish are committing cultural reappropriation). They manage to fool a lot of people, mostly non-SJWs, who use them as examples to bash the SJW community.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: An alarming number of Nazi sympathisers are on this site.

Gotta ask here.

Those Wacky Nazis: I think those are the ones who were nazis in deviantart too.

I’ll amend the Nazi entry:
  • Those Wacky Nazis: An alarming number of Nazi sympathisers and open Nazis are on this site. You can find them if you search for ‘Traditional European’—most posts you see will probably be by Nazis. If you see some declaration about being non-PC, you’ve struck Nazi gold. Expect a lot of pictures of folk European traditions, white girls who may or may not be naked (or dressed in national costumes), and half-baked ideas about race relations.

Please post that to the thread that Logo P linked.

Honest question but should this page really involve tumblr politics and not just the site itself?
01:40:58 PM Aug 11th 2014
Nah, it shouldn't. That said, I can't see much politics here either.

The ‘Hypocrite’ entry should be edited, as it’s actually an aversion: the anti-cishet-white-male hatred is mostly venting, and fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock, &c. are well aware of their flaws, but don’t think criticism makes them bad fans, quite the contrary.

You'll have to ask here.

I would like an appeal to prevent copious whining and editing that fails to recognise the "false equivalency" fallacy.

Basically boils down to irrational misuse of He Who Fights Monsters like, saying, claiming internet whiners are as bad as homophobes. Suffice to say, it's a fallacy very frequently used by bigots.
10:31:38 AM Dec 6th 2013
I think that is fair.
08:34:05 AM Jun 14th 2014
Nothing wrong with that.

One. I feel the site has a lot of Entitled Bastards in it, and two, dear lord that fandom name just keeps getting longer!
10:43:35 PM Oct 1st 2013
...If all you do is feel that there are a lot of Entitle Bastards, then you are sheltered. I'll admit, I tend to surf controversial topics so I'm probably exposed to more, but yes. They're everywhere. And fandom name? The memes that combine them can be either the most hilarious or creepiest ever.
03:02:44 PM Oct 6th 2013
I don't feel that. I'm a regular user. It just surprises me how vocal the truly Entitled Bastards of people are, it does make it seem more common.
