And you wonder why people are so upset about SJWs.
Well, that's rich. First of all, I have never said that I was wondering why people were upset about SJW. In fact, if you take a good look at the posting you "quoted", you will see that I identified another group of posters that acts in a way that I do not find justified, which you would probably call SJW (I wouldn't). When this all started, I was heavily arguing towards Playtonic not addressing this at all, that I fear this fuss over such a minor thing can only be harmful to the game.
Also, there is a huge spectrum of opinions where I am opposed to, but which I would call neither stupid, nor the people carrying those ideas cultist. The current extremist right, yes, I would say that they have certain cultish elements, but in most democracies, including the German one, there is a large array of differences in opinions which I don't condemn in any way. E.g. in Germany, there are the parties CDU, CSU, SPD, Greens, Lefts, FDP and AfD, the only one you will see me condemning is AfD, the extreme right party. Even though I agree on basically nothing when it comes to the conservative parties CDU / CSU, you won't see me claiming any sort of mental defect involved with supporting their ideals.
Regarding "dudes": It's fascinating that you call me anti-male, where I am male myself and within my political sphere (left-leaning green) I am probably an outlier in that regard as I oppose quotation rules for jobs, gender mainstreaming-type language policing and think representation in video games is a non-issue. That is, because I think the only thing important in a game is gameplay.
