On the internet content is prioritized by how people interact with it and I think people are far more likely to interact with content that is affirmative rather than dissenting, unless they're a contentious asshole like myself, but the consequence of this is that it creates an affirmation feedback loop.
I think SJW culture is simply a consequence of this, these people are disengaging with reality in favor of their safe spaces and carefully curated gated online communities where they compete among themselves to see who can take their ideology to its most ridiculous extreme.
Now I'd be inclined to think this an online only phenomena and these are just a few particularly outspoken idiots, y'know that's not really a problem, however it has entered the realms of governmental policy (the ever broadening definition of hate speech and sexism) and pop culture (hollywood, games and comics in particular).
What should we do about this, indeed should anything be done?
Does the internet need to undergo a structural change or have the contentious netizens been slacking in their duties?
