Yes, that totally must be the primary drive behind complaining about SJWs on SA—when you can still do this in GBS, FYAD, BYOB, YOSPOS & PHIZ. You learn something new everyday here.

This makes it sound like you had the freedom to do those things in GBS for a long time. When in actuality, the word "human being" was bannable in GBS from around late 2007 up until Aatrek's outing last year.

Whether it benefits GBS to allow that particular word again today is debatable, but people seem to forget just how sickeningly prevalent SJW attitudes were on these forums before the Fall of Aatrek. GBS 2.1 might actually be the best thing to happen to SA in a long time... in the same way that the Allies invading Nazi Germany was the best thing to happen to Germany in a long time.

A lot of people assume that rap is either about drugs, bitches, cash money, or materialism without delving deeper into the history of the genre. So when a rapper with a "message" comes alone, those same people claim that rap is now "mature" and means something while other rap before it was just frivolous.

... Soooo when Afrika Bambaataa introduced rap music to inner-city street gangs in the late 1970s as a non-violent means of resolving their differences...... that was all just frivolous?

How can people be this stupid?

I've seen anti-fluoridation bumper stickers on a disturbingly frequent basis in my current city. I've also seen a couple of Facebook posts show up in my feed... I tend to treat those kinds of people with a Safari Rules policy unless they're talking about an issue that affects me directly.
