Leftist culture is shit and so is this person's rant.

Well, I think I have to step forward and do a bit of babysitting for this "misunderstood fellow man". Hey, I've even gave you an upvote here, because I find this topic very interesting.

For me, it seems like this article was written by some middle-class person with little-to-no experience with oppression. Besides having some good (in my opinion) takes, such as:

If you’ve ever worked in the shelter system, or any field that serves those deemed as oppressed or marginalized in any way, such as abuse victims, the homeless, or people who struggle with addictions and/or mental illness (just a few examples)…one of the first things you learn is that they usually do not frame their worldviews in terms of academic theories you learned in gender studies classes in University. For the most part, they tend to not analyze their experiences in terms of systemic power and privilege, concepts such as “the patriarchy”, “white privilege”, or “heteronormativity”.

they appropriate struggles of marginalized people and propose the same attitude to themselves.

If any highly oppressed person claims that hearing some words is harmful for them, then it would be just enough reason for me to avoid certain words. It's not that hard at all! And if someone refuses to, science damn it, NOT USING SOME FUCKING WORDS, which do real harm to marginalized minorities, then I would feel obliged to shut that fuckwad down.

Is this constructive enough for you?
