And yes, of course, it feels good to be able to hit the name-calling bastards with a similarly heavy slur. Oh, I’m a ray-ceest? Then, you are a groomer. Ha ha.
This warm and fuzzy feeling of getting one over on the bastards comes at a cost of alienating the normies. The normies, as we have seen in Virginia and Florida, will come out to fight the school board. They won’t come out to fight a worldwide cabal of pedophiles. The normies tend to know their children’s teachers very well. They know that these people are not pedos or groomers. Moreover, there’s no parent on the planet who’ll happily run with the narrative of “I sent my kid to spend time with a pedophile every day.” This groomer meme makes parents feel like you are saying they are bad parents. And that turns them into your sworn enemy.
It all feels great but it’s massively counterproductive. Unfortunately, I don’t think people know the difference between “feels good” and “is effective” any more.
