Try and remember that the use of public spaces is for everyone, not just protesters. I fully believe in the right for people to protest, and to use public spaces for that protest. For areas like public roads, I see nothing wrong with getting some sort of parade permit (since roads are there to allow people to get around). A person's right to protest does not trump my right to the public road.

If you had said social activist, then yes. A SJW is the extremist version. They want censorship, claim that they fight bigotry while themselves are bigots, and are prime examples of the word "hypocrite".

1) That's...not sexual harassment. If she did not want his advances and he repeated them, that is sexual harassment.

2) Everyone's of legal age of consent. You can age-shame if you want, but it just makes you look like a wacky puritan.

3) ...wait, stylized rape? Okay, I'm done.
