If your view is anything other than "it's a shirt" then you're the one with the problem, not me.

This is grown-up stuff. The thoughts you had as a fifteen year-old don't cut it when you're discussing with grown ups.

If SJWs were only expressing their ideas, that would be one thing. They're actively harassing the scientist to the point where he had to issue a public apology to try and get them to back off.

You can read my views on the shirt. Just don't misrepresent them, child.

And you're going to solve this by destroying a man's career over his SHIRT?!! And I'm the childish one?!!!

Nice strawman. You can read my views on the shirt. No offence but trying to argue like this makes you look like an imbecile.

Freedom of expression is objectively right

And yet you argue by pretending that one person's expression of their ideas does not exist and attempting impose something else so that you can attack it.

But the SJW mindset IS damaging. It IS destroying things. It's dangerous and it needs to be stopped.

This is just hyperbole. Grow up.

I'm sure you understand that I am not wrong. I have an opinion. So do you. My opinion is different from yours. Neither of us is "wrong" or "right". We might gauge whether one of us is more in line with social mores at a particular point in time. At the moment, my observations are correct. That is why he came under so much pressure. You never know; people like you might be able to convert sufficient other people so that your view becomes the majority. We will still neither of us be "right" or "wrong". We'll just be more or less in line with social mores at a particular point in time.

Crap like this demonstrates exactly how the world is being destroyed by SJWs. Their whining is potentially going to be career ruining to a guy who's only crime is wearing a shirt that was given to him as a gift. A shirt. All because it hurt some SJW's feelings, because they can't stand the thought of people looking at pretty women.

You can be a child if you want to, but society has a view of itself, just as it always has. At the moment, one of the big issues for society is the imbalance in career choices between girls and boys. Remember, there's no "right" or "wrong" about this; it's just one of the many issues that (our Western) society is debating at the moment. That is why this guy is taking heat for his shirt. This is grown-up stuff, and it takes thinking about. You and the other piss-baby can join the debate like a grown up and take your chance at convincing society that your POV is correct. Saying that "the world is being destroyed by SJWs" can be your opening argument in this debate, if you like, but I don't think it is going to convince anyone. There's no organisation called "SJWs". There's people like you and then there's lots of grown-ups in our societies who are trying to think hard about this stuff. These issues are important. Either think about them and join the debate like an adult, or fuck off.

Most people can think about more than one thing at a time. So in my head at the moment we have: It's an amazing achievement for the ESA and the team and for humanity at large. AND putting on that shirt was a bit thoughtless if he knew he was going to be on TV. AND if he didn't know he'd be asked to talk on TV and his bosses made him do it, that was a bit stupid on their part. AND if the TV people picked him to be on TV because of his shirt, that was pretty dickish of them.

See? You can think of more than one thing at a time and none of the other thing detract from the defining achievement of the mission. Unless you're a piss-baby who thinks your world is being ruined by SJWs. Then you can only keep one thing in your head at a time I guess.

The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.
