Some of you may already be preparing to call me a hypocrite. After all, haven’t I made posts lambasting her and her terrible arguments? Sure, and I still mean those. However, Laci Green has recently come under fire from her own side for doing something that I guess the rest of them never thought of – talking to the other side. Just like the woman who made the documentary “The Red Pill,” Laci Green has recently made a video (linked here) where she says that she has decided that she will start talking to anti-sjws and hearing what they have to say, because she wants to be a skeptic. And part of being skeptical is listening to what other people have to say. It’s why I follow people on the left and the right, so I can get all perspectives. Granted, the level of hyperbole on both sides is deafening, but I do my best to at least attempt and be fair in my relegation of openness to perspectives. It’s why I have an open comments section and refuse to censor opinions. My comments are a pretty mixed bag of people on all sides. Just fine with that.
Naturally, the moment that Laci made that video, the torrent of vitriol from her feminist contemporaries began. She’s been called everything, from a fake feminists to just trying to be cool to even trying to get male attention. It’s juvenile, it’s pathetic, and to be honest it should make her realize that her side of the fence has no compunction against turning on each other like dogs the moment someone doesn’t follow in lock-step with the feminist party line. But she’s been subjected to that before and it didn’t turn out that way. Years ago she was confronted by her SJW cohorts about calling someone a tranny and they went so far as to dox her, but that didn’t stop her.
So what changed? As she says in her video, she decided to actually do this weird thing called engage with the other side of the fence to see what they were so upset about. And as is want to happen when people open themselves up to another perspective, her preconceptions were challenged and she realized that they are people in the world who don’t think like her. This injection of nuance didn’t sit well with the likes of Steve Shives, who proudly displayed his desire to only befriend people who could censor the people that he doesn’t like, even going so far as to say that he would never think of talking to people who don’t think like him because they are bad. It’s amazing the lack of cognitive dissonance he has. Steve, you really need to get away from your hatred of the other side. More specifically TJ Kirk. The Amazing Atheist is clearly high on Steve’s shit list. TJ joked that it must burn Steve that his channel has over 1 million subs, while Steve is hemorrhaging support left and right. Yeah, his dialogue with Laci shows that he is so salty about TJ’s success and is so miserable as a person. Kind of makes me sad in a way.
But back to Laci. A lot of people have asked me if I feel like this is the same situation as with happened with Ian Miles Cheong, who made a very vocal apology to the anti-sjw crowd and made clear that he was very committed to changing as a person. I don’t consider them on par. For starters, Laci has yet to apologize for some of the stupid and patronizing things she has said. Maybe she can start by apologizing to Roaming Millennial and Phillip DeFranco for some of the shit she has done. Or for that insane diatribe after Trump was elected that was the most base hypocrisy I have ever seen. The reality is that if Laci is turning over a new leaf and looking to be fair to the other side, I think it’s only fair that she apologize for some of the bat-shit crazy stuff she has said and done over the last few years. However, she may still do that.
If that were to happen, just like with Ian, I would accept her apology. And even though I know she has no idea who I am and likely never will, I would be willing to have a discourse with her. She still considers herself and intersectional feminist, but who knows where the future will take her. For now I am content to watch the SJWs cannibalize one-another for all the adorable lulz that I can. I’ve told the story of the dog team I came across more than once, and it is fitting here. However, there is someone who I think can make my point a lot better who I will let close out this little interlude with.
Until next time, a quote,
