I'm generally the odd one out that says diversity is overrated and claiming a need for it should be considered offensive.
Seriously, lets look at this statement some more.
That is hatred. It might be unintended hatred, but it is hatred none the less. Being opposed to diversity is being opposed to people who are different. That's all sorts of bad "isms".
It doesn't matter who is making a call for diversity, they're in a minority or a majority. In fact, people in the majority have a responsibility to make those calls, because it means we recognize that there are problems and they need to be corrected.
And yes, I do shut down. I don't apologize for it. I don't care what arguments people have to back up hatred. It's still hatred.
I hate reporting this stuff, because that just white-washes the issue and makes it seem to disappear, on both sides. People sit in their little bubbles and assume that they're right.
People pointing out patterns of racism/sexism/etc is not offensive. Anyone making such a claim is at worst unknowningly supporting said racism/sexism/etc.
Please counter this and tell my why black people shouldn't be allowed in comics.
And this is why people get turned off by social justice.
