Criticism isn't war. But taking over the SF establishment for ideological purposes is war. Of course they don't like the fact that an opposition has arisen and is fighting back. That's why they tried to discredit and disqualify and defenestrate me 10 years ago. They correctly sensed a potentially dangerous enemy and attempted to marginalize me. But I'm still here, and more importantly, I am not alone.
That's why they are suddenly declaring there is no war. But it's too late. The mask has been ripped off and too many have seen the true face of the SJWs.
Fighting To Win
This Madness Must End
Until recently, however, the Offendatrons (to borrow a phrase) of the SJW set were having considerable success in forcing game developers and marketers to change their games to reduce the offensiveness of their content. As far as I can tell, they did this by basically threatening to use the power of their stranglehold on the media to influence sales, and by trotting out of the oft-repeated yet highly suspicious statistic that “women make up 40% of all gamers,” or that in some cases female gamers outnumber male ones.
As is to be expected from progressives, who thanks to their liberal arts educations generally have vivid imaginations yet lack any real ability to understand mathematics, logic, or facts, their numbers are more than a little screwy, but for a long time the rest of us took them at face value. The results are both unfortunate and plain to see, as beloved franchises like Tomb Raider and Mortal Kombat are made more “correct.”
However, as the Protein World example makes clear, there is no reason whatsoever to fear offending the Offendatrons. Their entire reason for existing is to be offended, so why bother worrying about them?
Raise Your Glasses
I toast to President Reagan, who has put freedom back on the offensive, where it belongs.
