    Reality is that we don't have time to address every potential implication, especially since we won't always know what baggage the other side brings to a discussion, or how some outside event might change the perceived context between when a point is made, and when it is read.

    that one isn’t even up for debate
    The phrase hasn't been in existence for a loooooong time, so the pedant in me can still debate it.

    For the most part, it should still have some kind of association with the idea of race traitors. The other context would be ironic (IE- National Review guys calling one another "cuck.")

    I get that phrases can also be used generically to mention any opponents to an organization, although someone who is unable to articulate what makes a pejorative unique is probably not someone whose ideas should be taken seriously (as is anyone who uses a phrase that means "race traitor.")

    no, we don't have the time to address every implication... which.. is why i only addressed one that you made

    are we actually gonna nitpick the term "loooong time" now? no, the term "cuck" doesn't reach back to the cretaceous period (i'm seriously in fear that you will now point out that the english language did not exist back then).

    a lazy google/image search will give ya multiple results on the popular use of the word, which is pretty much now just "wimp" laced with a little sjw. carl the cuck, justin trudeau etc etc

    the use of it in the breitbart comments section may be "weird", but it's common. the users' inability to articulate does not impact their effectiveness or ability to harm.

    apparently it started off as positive before being co opted. maybe along the lines of “vegan warrior” and “wellness warrior”?

    Exactly.

    I don't understand why this forum's moderator is refusing to acknowledge the nastiness that the term carries with it. It's the same as going to bat for the term Feminazi.

    i mean, i’ve spent the last few pages arguing against generalising people and then i go and generalise? i know you can put two and two “twogether”

    though if your fb profile picture is of you in armour on the back of a pick up truck, astride your doggo with a flag in your left hand and a fish in your right...then i am deeply sorry
    Cool. Well i'm going to go read a Spider-Man comic now.

    I think you're arguing against a point I'm not making.

    You're talking about tone more than meaning (though it is hard to match the nastiness of calling someone anything with "Nazi" in it.)

    If the view is that the criticism of Social Justice Warriors as a group is unconnected with the question of effectiveness, we could consider examples of people labeled Social Justice Warriors, and whether they could be criticized for failing to fix the problem they're addressing. I don't want to be the one coming up with the examples, because I could be accused of cherry-picking.

    "Wimp" still fits the original porn-based meaning of "Cuck" which an analysis of recent images and memes suggests is still common (Why did I waste my time on that? It was not useful.)

    Though going after someone trans for being a wimp (especially in a context involving masculinity and sexual prowess) seems excessive.

    there's overlap, sure (and to be clear i'm using "wimp" because it's the kid friendly version of the word starting with p). from my point of view, going after anyone for being a cuck is excessive and says more about the user's insecurity than the recipient.

    but yeah, a big portion of those memes aren't using the term as "cuckold" specifically. you might even have seen some of the spider-cuck videos and memes out there when you googled. this dictionary definition sums it up better than i can and why some attribute it to the lgbti community:

    noun
    noun: cuck; plural noun: cucks

    1.
    informal•US
    a weak or servile man (often used as a contemptuous term for a man with moderate or progressive political views).
    2.
    a man whose wife is sexually unfaithful; a cuckold.

    There is something wrong with a guy who thinks it is okay for his woman to cheat on him..Does it mean he should cheat or abuse her? 100% NO. But being a cuck is something that should be unacceptable for a guy, and they need to change the behavior that allows her to get away with it. If however, the guy changes and she continues to cheat, then she needs to go.
