Dear Social Justice Warriors (SJW),
We reject your message. Is it obvious yet?
PIZZA (and Cake)
An irresponsible reporter poses a hypothetical question to the business owner of Memories Pizza. A. Hypothetical. Question. ‘Would you cater a gay wedding?’ This is an openly christian business. Well, Duh. The owner said that their beliefs would keep them from catering the hypothetical gay wedding. Why didn’t they create a story about buying a gay wedding cake from a muslim-owned bakery. (Oh yea. Those people will kill you for that kind of shit.)
So the station broadcasts a story about the ‘flyover country bigots’ who will not cater a gay wedding. The last lines of the story:
The O’Connor family told ABC 57 news that if a gay couple or a couple belonging to another religion came in to the restaurant to eat, they would never deny them service.
The O’Connors say they just don’t agree with gay marriages and wouldn’t cater them if asked to.
But now </irony> what a person chooses to believe, passively <irony/> is not enough for the SJW set. NO. Now it requires active assimilation to the Correct Thoughts.
So, how rejected was the message from the SJW and complicit media?
A final example. In Oklahoma (yes, really) the House of Representatives voted to end government licensing of marriages. That is correct. Get The State out of the business of deciding who can marry who. The State becomes the repository for the contracting documents of the married parties (2 only–hey it Oklahoma). That sounds like (and is) the ideal solution. So how did the SJW react? Unhappily:
State Rep. Emily Virgin, D-Norman, argued that if the U.S. Supreme Court should unexpectedly uphold state laws that define marriage as being between a man and a woman, Russ’ bill would end up making same-sex marriages legal in Oklahoma.
and from Freedom Oklahoma:
“This legislation puts all couples who plan to marry in Oklahoma at risk of being denied hundreds of federal legal rights and protections, if it were to become law,” said Troy Stevenson, executive director of Freedom Oklahoma. “The federal government and other states will not be required to acknowledge these proposed ‘marriage certificates.’ This legislation will only result in mass confusion from clerks’ offices to courtrooms around the nation — while putting Oklahoma families at risk.”
Why the unhappy? Because it does not force the majority to embrace the idea.
Score: SJW 0/The rest of us 1
You Are Having Fun The Wrong Way And Doing It Wrong And It’s Just Not Right That There Is All These Guns And Women And.. And…And…And…And..Not Fair…. I CAN’T GET MY SHITTY GAME NOTICED OR SOLD
This, in my opinion, is what #Gamergate boils down to: ‘I cannot compete and sell my shit’ (I’m talking to you John Walker Flynt, et. al.)….SO, I am going to conjure up a whole bunch of butthurt, couch it in theoretical feminist terminology and get other like-minded SJW wound up with some War-On-(Wo)men and make this stop. RIGHT NOW!
Just, wow. They are fictional games that young men (and women) boys and girls like to play. Some more than others. Since I am a bit more seasoned (ancient, y’all) I confess that we did not have video games when I was growing up (but we did have that fancy Indoor Plumbin’). The boys in my neighborhood played similar-in-theme-to-FPS games of “Cops and Robbers” and “Army”. Surprisingly the girls in our neighborhood did not join us much (or at all) for or rounds of expending pretend rounds. Who would’a thunk it?
I was around 11-12 when I first was availed of a Pong console. My friend and I played for hours. As video games hardware and stories became better, we all played those too. I don’t remember giving much regard to the social/patriarchal themes of the games– just trying to figure out the solution(s) to win the game.
“Video Games” are just that. They are designed for entertainment.
They are not called: “Video Lessons Instruments of Education, and Conduits Through Which Ideas Can Be Disseminated, Shared, and Discussed.” FFS.
Does that sound entertaining? No. It sounds like a lecture syllabus for a Soc class at Welsey. If people wanted to preached to, they can buy and read a book.
This is the un-winnable war for the SJW and complicit media. Your message is rejected, you have been caught and called out
Score: TBD but I would not put down any Drachmas on the SJW.
Speaking of books, we get to the latest:
Sad Puppies and the Hugo Award
Well, I did say if people wanted to be scolded/lectured/preached at/told Right Think they could buy a book. What kind of book? That’s right kiddies, a Science Fiction/Fantasy book.
However, it isn’t just the story-line that has to be Right Think–NO. Now the SJW want the authors of the stories to be the correct Sex/Color/Sexual Preference. To wit:
To the rest of us, it looked as though science fiction and fantasy were finally catching up to reality — the best stories aren’t only the ones told by straight white men.
and an example from her page:
This “Futuristic, Homo-erotic” Thai Movie Looks Totally Gorgeous.
(I watched the trailer and even with subtitles I could not get any idea of a story-line. Incompressible twaddle. Mostly, it was about close-ups of boys rubbing and holding, boys while looking wistfully at the camera. I’m willing to bet there is better Homo-erotic gay porn out there. If that’s what you want to watch just call it that. Don’t try to hide your fetish behind SciFy)
So evidently I (and a large majority of sf/f readers) are reading wrong. We are not The Right Kind of SF/F fan. We are nekulturny. Readers who probably take our books to the outhouse after they are read (and not for the library out there, either). Where would I get that idea:
Does the desire to expand fandom mean we have to welcome every imaginable kind of person? I think a moment’s reflection reveals that no, we do not. The SF convention that finds itself sharing a hotel with the International Association of Cheerful Child-rapers can probably be excused for not inviting them to come visit the con suite.
P, you could have used a few less words to say, “Fuck You. Bunch of ‘tards.”
Several of the Wrong-Think authors (Hello Larry, Vox, and Brad) decided to try and break the Right-Think Authors and Mayflower Fans block hording of the prizes. This was not a well met idea inside the Hugo-owning block. ‘Well, they don’t think they really “own” the Hugo Award, do they?’ Ummm, YES:
Teresa Nielsen-Hayden: should have been clearer. Those of us who love SF and love fandom know in our hearts that the Hugo is ours. One of the most upsetting things about the Sad Puppy campaigns is that they’re saying the Hugo shouldn’t belong to all of us, it should just belong to them.
T, the SP’s want the award to be open to more than just your Right-Think/Right-Skin/Right-Sex/Right-Sexual Preference lets-make-all-the-stories-about-teaching-a-lesson-to-the-rubes-on-earth authors.
Again, the message from the SJW and complicit (SF/F) media was rejected. Heavily.
SJW 0/The rest of us 2. One match TDB but leaning TROU
We reject your message. Is it obvious yet?
Do you think it is just my imagination that the media was complicit with the SJW?
Naaah, that could never happen.
But I know what the SJWs are thinking and wishing for:
‘If this only happened back in college–then we’d fix these bastards.’
Sorry pumpkins, this is the real world and the child games you played on campus have no leverage here.
