kaffyr: The TARDIS says hello (Bebop Ack)
From: [personal profile] kaffyr
So the shrillness and self-righteousness annoys me on all sides, but I'm willing to cut some slack for shrill young people on the one side, who are at least somewhat likely to grow up to be rational adult people I agree with. The Rabid Weasels are just as shrill and self-righteous, but highly unlikely to grow up, since many of them are already in their 50s and 60s. And they start at shrill and go on and down from there, passing loathsome on the way to unspeakable.

I think this succinctly encapsulates my response to people who shrug and say, aren't they all alike? As [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon so astutely points out, there are actual progressive voices out there who are being reasonable about things, and it's easy to separate them from the shrill ones who fall into the "SJW" cliche.

So yes, the noise can be deafening from all around, but the noise from one side tends to be that of earnest young yellers who, as you say, will probably mature, and meanly toxic, fearful bigots, whose yelling reflects true, hateful bigotry.
