"Social Justice Warriors are infringing on my right to look at Molestia, because they’re too oversensitive, overreacting, and overemotional to handle someone else’s opinion."
Yes, let’s talk about rights. In fact, why don’t we consult the Universal Declaration of Rights, just to figure out where we stand. I think these few are relevant:
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
All of these rights for Pinkiepony ended when bronies started feeling uncomfortable about their pony blog getting criticized. When they started feeling scared that someone might want to take their pony blog away. When they started feeling they could engage in vicious and credible threatening harassment, online and in person, face to face, in an effort to intimidate her into silence about their pony blog.
For daring to suggest that rape jokes were hurtful and distasteful.
