I keep hearing it.

Virtue signalling is the conspicuous expression of moral values done primarily with the intent of enhancing standing within a social group.

Ah ok. So it is sort of like claiming hatred for Autists to fit in at Minichan?

Well we are pretty autistic, so probably not.

Literally signalling (ie telling people about) your virtue.

Stuff like Je Suis Charlie, pussy hats, setting your Facebook profile pic to be the flag of the Eueopean country with the latest terrorist attack.


A good example is this video clip from the Australian TV show John Safran vs God. In Australia a popular form of virtue signalling is to hang a plaque on your house saying you acknowledge the aboriginies as the traditional owners of the land.

In this video clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5OlBT2OcGg (only 3:47 and I promise it's worth your time), John Safran gets some Aboriginies together and asks the (white, naturally) homeowners if they'd mind giving it back to the aboriginies. Comedy ensues 😂

I will give it back to him if he wants it

It's a way to try and shut down someone's opinion. You imply they're doing it for social gains rather than genuinely expressing an opinion.

Very similar to the common alt-right accusations of paid protesters and shills.

You do know that using the term "alt-right" is a micro aggression though don't you? You are literally causing a Holocaust with your hate speech.

This is what virtue signalling is though. The topic asked for the definition and this defines it. However you feel politically on the issue, this is the definition of virtue signalling.


It's like if you petition hard for Minichan to allow Matt schtick and then when you get your way, you leave the board because of Matt schtick.
