Not Everything is ___ist by genkistamps Not Everything is ___ist by genkistamps
Racist, sexist, ableist, ageist, speciesist, whatever.

Words are just that; words. Eleanor Roosevelt said it best: "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Also, social justice warriors, stop taking my adjectives away from me. If I want to call myself a dumb skinny bitch, let me be a dumb skinny bitch without screaming "ABLEISM! WEIGHTISM! SEXISM!"

I agree-not everything is designed to offend. One time, I drew my OC, Gina, who is black, and when I showed the picture of her to my friend, he called me a racist because the character was black.
Seriously? Drawing a black person is NOT racist-mocking one or drawing them in an offensive way, however, is. 
Also, my art style involves very tall, slender humans with long limbs and fingers, and with the exception of a handful of my humanizations (Plugsy and Fume Shroom for instance), nearly all characters I draw are very slender. People are always all, "WAAAH!!! UNREALISTIC BODY IMAGE!" about it, but really-it's not. It's just that the anatomy of fat or muscular people is super difficult for me to get right, and I'm just more used to drawing thin characters.
Not everyone's out to get you. Just have a coconut water and relax, man. :)

Totally. They think that just because they're offended by something, it's automatically something super-negative and everyone else must be offended by it. CURSE YOU! 

I wish the social justice warriors would stay on Tumblr, but it seems they've been spreading to DeviantArt as well.  Your stamps are refreshing.

My view? In a debate, all that matters are facts. Anything ending with '-ist' or '-phobe' is merely a distraction.

Nope! All that matters in a debate is how hard you insult the other person and how often you claim their argument is invalid because of something unrelated to the debate.

In other words, engage in the most blatant of logical fallacies--ad hominem.

:nod: Ad hominems ad nauseam win any debate!

...It's depressing how many arguments devolve into those here on dA, and usually within two replies. :grump:

Just look at any stamp with just a slightly controversial yet not entirely untrue opinion plastered on it--there will be a SJW-type who directly denies that opinion's validity, followed by someone trying to prove them wrong, followed by the first commenter deploying ad hominem (usually something to the effect of "wow you're dumb, ever go to school?"), followed by the second commenter deploying another ad hominem, and it keeps going... ad nauseam. Or until someone blocks the other person, which isn't all that uncommon, either. (Examples: [link] [link] )

I should know. I've been in them. I like to think that I'm one of those who're above that, but I'm ashamed to admit that I've been pulled down to that resort. It's like Mark Twain said: "Never argue with stupid people. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

You could also say terrorist. Because if something bad happens people just say it's a terrorist attack -.-

That may not apply, as it's a classification of tactics, not a political/social group.

I was on a forum and I was talking about these girls that were bullies to me at primary school. I said "they were all such bitches!" guess what? The mod came charging up to me saying it was sexist! Good thing she was told off by the main founder :lol:

But really, there is going to be a few rasist and sexist things which are unintentional. I again was talking about music to someone. I said something like "I prefer most singers if they are male". They screamed at me for being sexist. Its not about the gender even! Its only because their voices are easier for my ears. How is that sexist?
