Then report me for a rule 1 violation and move on, don't 1-up it three times by saying I am a racist misogynistic nazi.

SJW is just a far right snarl word and anyone using it makes themselves associate with those people.


Unfortunately, like Nazi, there are people who actually are that, but it is overused.

I mean in hindsight I obviously made a poor choice of phrase; I didn't think to much on it at the time but it is evidently a sore spot for some people. I made a mistake and I'll learn from it.

But to pass judgement on my entire character, and such a significantly negative one at that, based on one post in a wargaming forum? That's a level of bigotry I'm glad I have no part in.

Reading things like this just makes me realize how many dumb people are really out there.

Eh, I think his manner of phrasing is not doing him favors here. The underlying sentiment of 'using a term associated with a specific group of people will lead others to believe you are also associated with that group' is valid.

Now in my locale the term in question does not bear such a strong association, thus leading to my using it in what was an unwise choice on my part. I should have thought about the potential misinterpretation that could occur. Of course some individuals have taken that misinterpretation and ran with it into a display both hypocritical and ironic to such an extreme I can't even get mad about it.

But just outright calling someone dumb over it is just continuing the chain.
