Ok, so. There is a LOT of stupidity going around. In part, a false fervour about 'hate' symbols.
Or at least, a fervour about false 'hate' symbols.
Alright. So I included several of these 'hate' symbols in this piece, and will describe each of them more correctly than they usually are.
100: Apparently 100 and/or 100% is a 'white supremacist' symbol. There is, as far as I can find, basically no evidence to support this claim. Some places seem to propose that 100/100% are said to indicate that a person is 'completely white' or '100% white', but that seems to be grabbing at straws.
Make America Great Again: Many people seem to believe that this is a 'modern fascist symbol'. This is utterly incorrect. This is a political campaign symbol. For a Republican candidate, that managed to win the election in America and is, as of writing this, the President of the United States of America. That is all it is. There isn't anything 'fascist' about the symbol, or anyone who wears the hat. The only thing that has started to happen is that individuals who wear the hat seem to be more targeted for assault, abuse and theft purely due to supporting a candidate who is now the President. Rather flawed.
Meninist: I have no idea why anyone can, or would, take this seriously. Meninist was created as a joke. That is all it is. A JOKE. There is nothing else to it. Meninist is a joke parody of Feminist. It matches the rather insane talking points that some feminists put out, and flips the genders. That is all it does to start out with, and then a few jokes thrown in on top. It isn't actually a movement. It is a joke. That is all it is. Don't take a joke seriously, please. The legitimate movement, the Men's Rights Movement (MRM), that is comprised with Men's Rights Advocates/Activists (MRAs), is the actual movement. It has no link to Meninist/Meninism. The MRM is not a joke. It is a movement for the rights of men. And guess what, I am a MRA. I follow and read a lot of different MRM material. Because there are a lot of areas that men are lacking rights in. Guess what else. I am also a WRA (Women's Rights Advocate), CRA (Children's Rights Advocate) and overall HRA (Human Rights Advocate). Because I believe that all people should have freedom.
Pepe: Pepe, Kek, Kekestani and all of the various things that have come from it. Pepe himself, the meme, the frog. Was declared as a 'hate symbol'. I don't understand how a cartoon frog could be classed as a hate symbol purely because SOME people use racist memes with it. I mean, if we judge whole groups based of the actions of some, then all of furry should be declared animal and children abusers due to the paedophile rings that have been busted and various bestiality things that go on in it. SOME furries do that. Therefore ALL furries should be lumped in with it, no? Ok, if you don't believe that, then you also shouldn't believe that Pepe is a hate symbol. Pepe isn't a hate symbol. It is a meme, it is a joke. That is it.
OK hand symbol: It is amazing. Apparently some folks think that the OK hand symbol means 'white power'. This is rather blatantly false. It was started by 4/8 Chan, and the media actually picked up on it. The only meaning it has, is the traditional meaning, not the 'new' meaning that paranoid and delusional people are putting onto it.
Milk: Another rather impressive things put forwards by the Chans. Some people claim that drinking milk, in a public place, is a hate symbol. Apparently because those not of European decent have a higher likelihood chance of being lactose intolerant, and then that ends up being a symbol of white supremacy, yet again. This, again, is wrong and flawed. It is a joke. It was made as a joke to set people off. And people were set off. That is about it really.
So, these are some of the 'hate' symbols flying around at the moment. Hopefully I have at least been able to provide a bit of information to anyone who was paranoid enough to have any kind of strong negative reaction to any of these symbols. Because, there is no reason to. They don't mean what your delusions are telling you it means.
Hope that everyone has a wonderful life indeed.
