Love them but now every time I visit, I'm forced (by some unknown magic) to play shoot the flakes to see if I am quick enough to make them all disappear, before more re-appear!

I'm an SJW on CGP, and not about to melt any time soon. I've melted a few Pepe worshipers in my time though, simply by quoting back what they say and pointing out how demonstrably false or ignorant it is. For example, let's look at the term "SJW", short for "Social Justice Warrior". The alt-right says this like it's a bad thing. If we break the expression down using the dictionary definitions of each word we get:
  • Social: relating to society or its organization
  • Justice: just behavior or treatment; the quality of being fair and reasonable
  • Warrior: a brave or experienced soldier or fighter
So it seems that an SJW is someone who bravely fights for fair and reasonable treatment for all members of society. How is that even an insult? And if you're not an SJW, why not? And what do you believe in instead? As an SJW, I confess that I'm a bit ignorant about the arguments against being one, so if you have any that make logical sense, I'd love to hear them. Maybe I've been wrong all this time.

Or we could just sit back, eat our popcorn, and watch the snow come down.

I need emergent SJW 'opinion'. Are white snowflakes racist or not? Should there be snowflakes of other colors???

You know that racist only applies to how you treat people right? I prefer fluffy white clouds to dark ones, and white snow to yellow, but since neither of those things are people, it's got nothing to do with race. I'm sure that on other planets, where other chemicals precipitate from the sky as "snow", other colors would be perfectly normal and acceptable. On Earth, where snow is made from H2O, other colors could indicate some kind of environmental catastrophe. You should also definitely avoid trying to catch any yellow snowflakes on your tongue.

Lol, I think the message is clear, being that everybody knows snowflakes are angel tears, repent ye sinners of persia, lay down your misbegotten software, become a SJW and sign up for the 5 step plan to SJW sainthood.


Wait, scratch that bullcr*p, episode 89 and his SJW wife?... hell where do I sign!

Yes he is. What he says about SJWs is funny because it's true - at least about a small subset of SJWs ,who are just as pedantic and closed minded as the crazies on the other side. Sadly, many of the most vocal crusaders on both the extreme right and left often demonize their opponents instead of listening to them and trying to find common ground. To paraphrase our supreme leader, there are wackos "on many sides, on many sides". It makes it hard to take any of them seriously, like when the BLM faction at a Pride parade threatens to boycott if cops show up - to support them - wearing uniforms, while anyone else at the parade is free to dress like a cop if that's their thing. That's when real social justice takes a back seat to shrill special interest histrionics, much like what Sears was parodying. But the funny thing is his video was a parody. This one isn't:

Now if anyone thinks people like this are better - other than for shear milk squirting from your nose entertainment value - I'm afraid you're beyond trying to reason with. For the rest, let's just try to get along, and sometimes agree to disagree.

The real "snowflakes" on CGP are the silly kids who think the foundry is spying on them through their MAC addys.

good news: if you overclock your system for better performance, leave a tab of this page open with the snowflakes and it will cool down your system's cpu and gpu and prevent overheating



all kidding aside, the snowflakes slow down my browser when i have over 400 tabs open, if site sys admin can please look into fractal optimization of said snowflakes that would be great

<sarcasm>Oh, I'm truly sorry. Every comment I've made here has had at least an element of sarcasm to it, including my original response to L0Liv3r's post. Taking your question "seriously" and answering it like it was a "real" question instead of a troll was in fact sarcastic. I apologize for not including "<sarcasm>" tags for people who have difficulty recognizing it - I thought all the smileys would give it away, but obviously I was wrong. Should I have included a clever meme from Imgur? I also apologize for my role in derailing a perfectly fun discussion about CGP's Christmas theme into something political. Shoulda known my original sarcastic comment would lead to this. Prezadent was totally right in face-palming it. </sarcasm>

Edit: Here are a couple more examples from JP Sears to practice on:

True. As true as calling beer without alcohol 'beer'. I obviously recognized your attempt at being sarcastic, but it's just wasn't good enough... It was as sarcastic as SJW being meaningful part of the society. Does that hurt your feelings???

Internet is overflown with brave warriors fighting for 'social justice' while having no courage to open their mounts IRL. Compensating their disabilities... well, that's old as time itself. Anyway if you're trying to parodу SJW you are not doing it very well. And for obvious reasons. Real SJWs are already parody of themselves without knowing that, you can't make another 'The Room' on purpose.

My god, it's gotten so bad that I can't tell the difference between flamers, SJWs, and sarcastics. Don't worry though, you're all special snowflakes to me.

Welcome to the Internet. Any goat f***ers here? Because that would make the party complete.
"The Web brings people together because no matter what kind of a twisted sexual mutant
you happen to be, you've got millions of pals out there. Type in 'Find people that have sex
with goats that are on fire' and the computer will say, 'Specify type of goat.'" - Rich Jeni
Now let's get back to having fun in the snow...

@Sproxar
cursing & bad words as 'goat fuckers' are passe
Today those are 'men who stare at goats' (or sheep)... or sometimes are simply horsing around, blessing ppl as Cosby showed

try with cynical sarcasm

or in the age of AI bots in words from fuck the city (paraphrasing Sex in the City)... "are we all snowflakes having monologues, talking & pleasuring ourselves"
- Trump did this
as the Man wants every idiot to become the crusader in tha name of tha tru$t

A real SJW probably would have known that. Couldn't remember which to use at the time, but was too lazy to look it up. Shoulda known I'd get it wrong if I didn't. Fixed - Thanks.
