There's Nothing To Fight For....Except Our Own Culture; And That Isn't Cool At All! [CBD]

Ace mocked the menstrual blood twit yesterday, and one of his points is that the current causes for these self-important, entitled, conspicuously consumptive and rich idiots are not causes at all.

Period-shaming is the greatest injustice the world has ever known!

Second-greatest injustice? Daddums was late with the condo fee payment this month and the landlord yelled at me so loud!

So why do they fight so hard for embarrassingly stupid stuff? Because the real causes, like freedom from Nazis and communist killers and a few other really important things were already fought and won by their grandfathers. The only other significant cause that is available to them is the fight for their own culture. And that's decidedly not counter-culture, so they reject it out of hand. And besides, that would mean doing unpleasant things like confronting evil and enlisting in the army and maybe getting their designer-jeans-clad asses shot up by some angry Islamist.

So they traipse off to the local square and demonstrate against the patriarchy and Global Warming and the existential threat of no free tampons in the train station and cop-killer bullets and single-sex bathrooms in elementary schools and a host of vapid, illogical faux issues that mean something to about 200 people, most of whom were their stoner buddies in college.

Yes, they are dangerous, but no, they and their causes are not serious...at all. These are small and unimportant people, and their only chance at power is to align themselves with similar weaklings and hope they can drive the discussion in the desired direction. Contrast them with Milo Yiannopoulos, whose fight against the free-speech Nazis is in the public square, with his name prominently displayed.

Can you think of any equivalent on the Left?
