Social justice warrior doesn’t deliver but keeps the money

Social justice warrior and feminist @KivaBay Kiva Smith-Pearson started a crowdfunding campaign so that she could produce a feminist deck of cards. Social justice warriors everywhere enthusiastically backed her project. In no time at all she had met her financial goal, which she had told them was enough to produce the cards. The updates on how the project were going soon trickled to a halt  and a couple of backers showed concern.

Eventually she wrote an explanation that I cannot access because I am not a backer. From what I can tell from the comments, she told them that she was not going to go ahead with the project because she was suffering from depression. At this point any moral person would then refund everyone their money but that is not what has happened. It turns out that when your backers are social justice warriors not only do they want you to keep their money for not producing anything, they will enthusiastically congratulate you for trying. Failure is obviously something that they are very comfortable with, as well as people getting money for nothing.

Given the  forgiving and generous nature of her backers I am am inspired to do some crowdfunding myself. How about creating feminist underwear? I will make my target goal $50,000  and when that is achieved  I will apologise profusely for my failure and explain  that I cannot go ahead with the project because the patriarchy is keeping me down.
