lol...this is actually a nice example. In the virtual world you feel gratification when you earn
respect...why? because you worked "hard" for something that has value. What value would respect have if it were given out for free to everyone in the virtual world or the real one? no value at all.
I'm just gonna go ahead and assume you got this talking point from Jordan Petersen.
Other than GTA being a terrible example in which you usually commit crime to earn the respect that of others (and also, video games are not hard work), respect can often be unearned. You cannot say to me that you have never had irrational respect for someone before. I know I certainly have - still do - and I sometimes have irrational distaste for others as well. Most of the time, respect is earned, but respect can be really random, and is not just based on the character you make, but also much of what you're born with.
I think your main issue is your desire to put people into extremely large, vast groups. There is more than one kind of leftist, and there is more than one kind of feminist, and not all of them believe that people must be nice to them at all times.
Most people are just saying that they want a fair chance. If you want to go far in life, be respectful towards those that deserve no respect at all. You'll make more friends that way, and they could change for the better.
Or don't. Being an ******** can be fun sometimes.
