Yes, it’s a misplaced apostrophe, the poor dear.

One thing I have noticed about leftist-minded people in general is that they are often the most racist and sexist people you could meet, yet they are quick to point out this supposed flaw in others. I will be starting a threat on that at some point. There is an idiom of surprising antiquity, 'pale, male and stale', which summarises this hypocritical attitude.

By the way, isn't it 'SJWs', not 'SJW's'? I think I am correct in saying there shouldn't be an apostrophe. Forgive my pedantry, it isn't meant to be hostile - I just find that I always notice errors with apostrophes and I've noticed that a lot of people struggle with using apostrophes appropriately. I suppose this is just another form of 'correctness', for which I apologise.

Justice for Apostrophes!

#ApostrophesMatter

you'r thought on apostrophes invalidates my gender, which happen's to be an apostrophe. And an apostrophe that isn't' used in the same way as your' hetero-normative patriarchial bourgeois grammar, it is the apostrophe of a revolutionary conscience.
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

I profusely apologise for my offending remarks.

I now realise that apostrophes have feelings too and need to feel included, even in those verbal, lexical and syntactical constructions in which the deployment of the apostrophe and all forms of special apostrophisation are not called for or even correct.

I now understand that we are living in a world in which normative grammar is a repressive manifestation of cis-normativity that disadvantages apostrophes and excludes them by sustaining a structure of Euro-centric, normative, binary, classist, abled, fascistic, hierarchical social norms within the 'universal conversation'. The perpetuation of this normative grammar invalidates, disempowers and delegitimises those voices that we need to listen to if we are to have a transgressive and transnormative dialogue that embraces all viewpoints and experiences.

Headline,

Adult Communist accused high school white girl of culturally appropriating a dress that the Chinese culturally appropriated, but then banned for being "bourgoise" when the commies took over:

It seems there should be no more suit wearing for Mr Lam, cultural appropriator.

Bottom line though, the dress fits well and she looks good in it. Much better than wearing Western dress for the body you want, rather than what you have.

It is a nice dress, as far as "bourgeoisie" dresses go. Back in the dark ages way back when in 2012,when we were all unenlightened knuckle-draggers, I don't think anyone would have thought anything of this - and your average Obama voter and college radical alike would have thought themselves "enlightened" by wearing this and saying such "bourgeois" things as "I don't see color".

I have a hunch the left is very much what they accuse conservatives of, not really a set of ideas but an attitude.

The Club sandwich is nothing but three slicesof American-nativist-patriarchal-cis gendered-hetronormative imperialism on WHITE bread with the tasty mayonnaise, tomato, bacon, and lettuce as just another ideological dressing covering the true superstructure of oppression in our food:

The Turkey though, that's real...it's there to remind you of what you are, nothing but a turkey for falling for the scam. That's the 1% at the boys club laughing at you.
