'Straight white males are an inferior type of human who should know their place'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Instead of dealing with an opposing argument by putting forth a rebuttal, many on the postmodernist left and social justice spectrum will first and foremost attack you and try and dismiss your right to even have an opinion because of your skin colour, gender and sexual orientation. But only if you are a straight, white male.

In the worldview of these people straight, white males are an inferior type of human who should keep their mouths shut and know their place. How is this any different to the bigoted mindset of white supremacists?
...
These young non-feminist women, as well as feminist dissenters like Christina Hoff Sommers and Camille Paglia, are all dismissed as having “internalised misogyny”. Meanwhile, Sharia law supporter Linda Sarsour who is at the forefront of the feminist movement in the USA, is never accused of having “internalised misogyny”, despite supporting a brutal religious legal system that treats women as second class citizens.

This alliance between some feminists and Islamist defenders like Linda Sarsour exemplifies the internalised hypocrisy within feminism and the wider social justice movement.

Perhaps one day the current radical feminists and social justice warriors might become capable of grasping the fact that many of their opponents or even internal dissenters, whatever their gender, skin colour and sexual orientation are also able to have strongly held opinions that are not motivated by sexism, racism, homophobia or “internalised misogyny.”'

Comedian?

Wonder what comedian he is referring to?

I remember the comedy of yore fondly. George Carlin put a lot of time into his comedy. Richard Pryor was hilarious. And Abbott & Costello's "Who's on First?" routine is widely believed among comedy performers to be the single funniest 2-man stand-up routine since modern technology allowed performances to be recorded.

But today, comedy, like many performing arts, suffers from an unbelievable dearth of real talent. Today's comedians lean heavily on appeals to stereotypes, diminishing others either as individuals or as groups, or using foul language to garner laughs. "Who's on First?" has none of those elements in it (unless you count "darn" as foul language) and yet remains tops. Lesson for today's so-called comics. But I doubt they are paying much attention.
