    But the Nazis ruled Germany.

    That doesn't prove the SJWs wrong though

    11. Attack anyone who disagrees with you while saying no one should be attacked.


    12. Label someone something that ends in -phobe.
    Unless you're just pulling the semantics card on them, for clarity.

    13. Use words like "social construct"
    Please don't demonise phrases; just criticise the people who use them inappropriately.

    14. Cry for children in Africa but like...never visit and stuff

    *Here's a complete quote from a typical sjw including 11-14:
    Please give context to this post, if it was posted by another user of the Internet; I no longer trust you or your judgement.
    "You shouldn't talk to people like that, you assh*le. You're just a skinphobe. Race is a social construct, ok? You think your life is hard here, try Africa you ****. We should all just love each other in the end, you idiots."
    I would define a race as a group of people phenotypically distinct from another group of people, and the line drawn is arbitrarily defined. As it's based on the premise of the line being arbitrarily defined, I suppose it has to be a social construct.

    But I do definitely disagree with this common principle that all differences between humans are social constructs e.g gender.

    And that if something is a social construct, then it must be non-existent. Beyond stupid.

    And to love each other is a two-way street.

    11. Deny the fact you are a Social Justice Warrior when called out.
    I disagree with this simply because there are those that call anyone who disagrees with them that. Or anyone who advocate more recent topics in society, like the acceptance of same-sex attraction and same-sex marriage.

    The thought of coming into conflict with these kinds of people is exactly the sort of thing that worries me about starting university this year.
    Have conviction! (But I don't want to be liable if things go sourly.)

    I think I might have been called one before and I don't think it was nice.

    Derogatory to compare me to those people. ...

    Probably an ad hominem...
