SJW Cannibal Feeding Frenzy

Personally, I love when SJWs begin to eat each other.

So this article has been making the rounds, and I’ve repeatedly been asked to comment on it.

http://laurajmixon.com/2014/11/a-report-on-damage-done-by-one-individual-under-several-names/

Apparently a member of the literati SJW army—and super prestigious Campbell nominee for BEST NEW WRITER—has turned out to be a huge internet troll, with a bunch of aliases, attacking and tormenting people. Of course, those of you who read this blog or followed Sad Puppies are like, duh… They attack and torment Larry, and anybody who agrees with him nonstop, but no my friends… Benjanun Sriduangkaew did the unthinkable and used their regular SJW tactics of threats, insults, intimidation, and career sabotage against fellow SJWs, and that is super badthink!

Now, when you threaten, intimidate, troll, and try to sabotage the career of anybody who disagrees with the Social Justice narrative, then that is doubleplus good! Try not to get confused.

I tried to read that article linked above, but the first page is caveats and trigger warnings and excuses and namby-pamby blah blah blah to ensure that nobody of any protected groups gets their feelings hurt. She could have just copy and pasted ONE OF US! ONE OF US! a couple hundred times and saved some space. Yes, author, the audience is now aware of your proper goodthink credentials. Get to the point.

But by the time she got to a paragraph of hand wringing about Ferguson—where her total ignorance of the facts of the case make me really glad we have a functioning justice system that requires things like jury trials and evidence—I’ll admit that I gave up and started to skim.

Basically, this “up and coming writer” who was nominated for a prestigious writing award for having one pro sale short story and being a Thai Lesbian (which is totally worth like ten books of actual writing) treated fellow SJWs the way that SJWs treat all of us, and that is the worst thing ever. And now she should be shunned by all the other proper good thinkers for hate speech crimes and unsafe feels. She will now be banned from Wiscon’s Racially Segregated Safe Zones and I’m sure people will threaten not to attend WorldCon because she might call them fat.

A note on being an “up and coming writer”, as far as I know this woman had a handful of short stories, only one of which would have counted as a professional sale, and a blog where she wrote about Social Justice crap, and that was enough to get her nominated for the Campbell Award for Best New Author. It doesn’t look like this nominee for Best New Writer has published much since.

Meanwhile, when I got nominated for the same Campbell award a few years before I was “controversial”, “threatening”, and “a right wing hate monger”, who “made them feel unsafe” and if I won it would “end literature forever.” But then again, I had only published two really successful novels and several short stories at the time, and since gone on to publish ten more novels, a few dozen short stories, and some novellas… Only, we all know as a libertarian minded Republican I can never be a *real* writer.

Yet, when I say that the Hugo awards are biased in favor of the liberal cause of the day, I’m the controversial one. Go figure.

So anyways, UP AND COMING WRITER and SUPER PRESTIGIOUS AWARD NOMINEE turns out to be an anonymous troll douchebag on the internet. Whoop.

The fun part of this for me is watching all of the politically correct writers freaking out this week about how her behavior is totally unacceptable. How career sabotage, fake reviews, slander, libel, trolling, doxxing, and threats are the worst things ever… Yet, I wonder… Where were all these people when it was me getting attacked?

Oh, that’s right. I’m on the other team, so anything goes against non-SJWs.

When writers say something that doesn’t fit the SJW narrative, we know to expect their trolling, attacks, death threats, and calls for boycott from the caring SJWs. We expect to see our names dragged through the mud, with unsubstantiated cries of racist, sexist, homophobic, misogynist, hater applied. Showing up in major newspapers with fabricated quotes attributed to us? No big deal. We expect to be labeled as “rape apologists” to tens of thousands of complete strangers.

But that’s totally cool. Lies and slander are perfectly fine when directed at right wingers. The same people condemning Sriduangkaew’s behavior manage to overlook or even laugh along with the exact same behavior when directed against people who aren’t part of their little incestuous tribe.

If you follow history you know that leftist movements always end up with leftists eating each other. This article was just Trotsky getting the ice axe to the head.

The SJWs are perfectly aware of their hypocrisy. They talk about how Sriduangkaew was praised for “punching up”, meaning that it was okay for her to use these tactics against non-members. Threaten somebody of the correct sex and race, cool. Threaten somebody of the wrong sex and race, bad. If you have a brain, you will find that sexist or racist, but you are not thinking like a proper SJW. Anything they say isn’t sexist or racist, but anything we do is. Simple.

If you really want to see just how stupid people can get, read the comments, where SJWs argue about “privilege”, where a bunch of white, liberal suburbanites excuse attacks on people who disagree with them, because they probably possess some nebulous concept of privilege. Like me for example, I grew up with Portuguese Dairy Farmer Privilege, where all that back breaking manual labor, knee deep in cow shit, at 3:00 in the morning, in order to scrape by in near poverty all those years, somehow turned me white and made it so that it was okay for SJWs to lie about me.

Behold! The face of privilege!  (yes, this person has Holsteins. The truly disadvantaged would be forced to milk Jerseys)

Behold! The face of privilege! (yes, this person has Holsteins. The truly disadvantaged would be forced to milk Jerseys)

Privilege sounds awesome. You guys should totally get some of it.

This article is hilarious. They actually break her trolling down with graphs! GRAPHS! Yes, they literally analyze Sriduangkaew’s obnoxious behavior based upon the race and sex of who she attacked. Because they are equal opportunity assholes!

A reasonable person would say, hey, maybe you should just not troll and slander anybody, but reasonable people only say that because of privilege (and sanity). A proper Social Justice Warrior knows that since they’re full of shit, all they’ve got is dirty tricks and outrage in their toolbox, so they can’t give that stuff up. That would force them to debate with logic and facts! And everybody knows logic and facts are privileged cisgendered colonial patriarchy!

This is one reason I’ve been enjoying the hell out of GamerGate. First, it has been awesome having a great big group of people witness the same bullshit that my industry has been dealing with for years. Second, SF/F people tend to be squishy and polite, with a handful of outspoken outliers like me and the rest of the Evil League of Evil, so SJWs have run roughshod over my industry… But gamers? Holy shit. You really think you can pick a fight with people whose brains are programmed to win? Gamers will outlast, outthink, and outfight the SJWs. Tell a Gamer that there is loot or XP in it, and he’ll grind SJWs to the grave.

So enjoy this SJW cannibal feeding frenzy, sane people, because tomorrow they will be back to telling you that you are enjoying yourself wrong.

yup that’s about the summary of it…

Here’s what I love about this whole rising pushback: every time we put up one of the enormous number of SJW quotes, and the sick quotes of their heroes – namely gender feminists – they lose sales.

On the other hand, SJWs have very few quotes and people to work with. They rely on smearing the Golden Age, smearing Heinlein and Asimov, lying about SFF authors, lying about history, and pretty much everything. SJWs have no racist institutionalized voices to push back against and concentrate on multiplying two or three people into an army and otherwise lying. SJWs look at an innocent photo of convention organizers, see a lot of whites, and declare a KKK.

Every time people watching this realize SJWs can’t back up their smears with actual quotes and facts, SJWs lose even more sales and we actually gain sales in sympathy. SJW lies about diversity are coming unglued and exposed, and naive water-carriers are also getting uncomfortably out on limbs they can’t back off from and quotes that will be on the internet forever.

Any cult that has Andrea Dworkin or Charlotte Bunch as a hero won’t survive that knowledge being exposed in America. SJWs cannot and will not disavow those women without disavowing the entire basis of their ideology: the idea of a non-binary gender-fluid-diverse future battling against an oppressive privileged white heterosexual cis-patriarchy. That’s just nuts.

Because they really ARE racists, sexists and bigoted against various sexual orientations. And they have clearly and openly stated they are. I think I’m going to run a post soon on Fantastic Worlds which will list some of these authors and their nasty statements.

They were willing to make these statements in public because they’ve absorbed critical race theory and intersectionalism, under which it’s okay to denigrate whites, males and heterosexuals — in fact, they’ve absorbed a more complex version of the theory under which there is an elaborate theory of members of which groups can insult members of which other groups without it being seen as offensive. Problem is, nobody outside their little academic cult really thinks this way, and they are offended when they find out what these writers have been saying.

We, on the other hand, aren’t racists or sexists, and hence we don’t say such broadly-offensive things. They are limited to making broad, unsupported accusations against us — and such are very unconvincing to any neutral readers.

That’s it in a very elegant nutshell Jordan. In fact it’s amazing how well you summed up what is a very complex mechanism and history. Quotes speak volumes, and it’s simply a matter of connecting the dots. Those dots run in a direct line back to radical lesbian gender theory of the late ’60s. The newest wrinkle is the intersectional part, which throws in race, colonialism, etc.

I believe a lot of these folks, especially the men, don’t even know where this all comes from. That’s the point. The point is how this insanity has been mainstreamed and normalized. When Alex MacFarlane at Tor.com calls for the end of “binary” norms in SFF, she is almost directly quoting gender feminists of the ’60s who call for an end of heterosexuality as the norm, and see it as an artificial construct meant to control women. Those are their words, not mine. I have books of this shit. “Privilege” in the exact same sense it’s being used today in SFF is also used by those ’60s folks. The difference is people used to understand those folks were nuts.

Just yesterday Damien Walter Tweeted “Feminists aren’t ‘SJW’. They are people who believe women must be treated equally.”

That’s bullshit, at least in SFF, and he knows it. If that was the issue I’d be and am first in line. They spout that crap occasionally to make it seem like we hate equality for women. I’m not against that, I’m against what these people are really selling, and it’s the psychotic visions of Andrea Dworkin, Audre Lorde, Jill Trebilcot and Charlotte Bunch, among many others.

At this point many in the SFF community are running on later-generation versions of this madness where it’s couched in terms of “anti-oppression,” and so it seems a lot more plausible when it’s hidden inside the 3 great anti-oppression movements of the last century: women’s, civil and gay rights. But make no mistake, it’s being hidden. It’s being hidden the same way Jew-hate is hidden inside some anti-Zionism.

By hiding within anti-oppression narratives, the psychotic breaks of these lesbian fanatics have plausible denial. Their innate loathing and fear of normal sex becomes my oppression and misogyny. You have to read Jill Trebilcot to understand what that means: “First, intrusion. Men — male voices — would overhear my thoughts and want to get in. The second stage was control. The invaders not only wanted to get in, they wanted to take me over once they were in . . . This then is the core of the craziness — invasion and control, and the threat of invasion and control.”

That’s a tenured lesbian professor talking about her late twenties. I should add there is as great a difference between that and just being a lesbian as there is between being KKK and just a heterosexual. These are not typical lesbians but crazy bigoted supremacists who believe men are spiritually and morally inferior. Suddenly all this stuff in SFF makes a lot more sense.

What’s really funny is to see Jim Hines, Scalzi, Kowal, and Paul Weimer parrot this stuff like it’s the civil rights movement without a clue as to the actual insanity and bigotry behind it. Have these intersectionalists been successful at camouflaging all this? You damn well better believe it. The problem is that eventually they have to come clean, or there’s no point. Well, they’re doing it and the wheels are starting to come off as people get a whiff of a cult that openly calls for the end of heterosexuality, the nuclear family and America’s institutions. All that “cis” bullshit didn’t come from liberalism, which is the other great lie being sold. This has nothing to do with liberal vs. conservative. It’s just convenient to portray their sickness as the Dem mainstream and our horror as reactionary GOP gun-toting militia who want women barefoot and with no pencils.

Once you understand what’s going on, all their comments make perfect consistent sense. It’s no coincidence the most famous phrase in core SFF today isn’t “faster-than-light” – it’s “straight white male.” People have been chumped, and big time. SFF’s a Jim Crow? Really?

I read Laura Mixon’s post on Friday and wrote this:

http://tlknighton.com/?p=6796

I agree with you about the Ferguson stuff, which annoyed the hell out of me, but mostly I focused on how they’ve been doing this stuff to us for years, but the difference is that if someone like this Requires Hate tries it on us, we yawn and move on.

After all, when you’ve been called every “-ist” name in the book enough times, it just loses it’s sting.

Guest

Look at it from their POV. They’ve accepted the whole insane, Byzantine rules about who can insult who and what words they may use and who is on the crap-list for having violated these rules. They’ve taken it seriously, internalized it. In some, really disgusting cases, they’ve made personal life decisions — begun or broken off love affairs or friendships — to better conform to the rules.

Their reward was that they got a special “victim” status which they could parlay into literary success — maybe not in terms of high sales, but in terms of access to like-minded publishers and editors who would ensure them some sales as long as they continued to toe the line. And they really sacrificed things to get these status.

Things which no decent human beings would have sacrificed — decent human beings would have said “Sod off” to the first demand that they break a friendship or an engagement or mutilate their own ideas or whatever to better conform. But they were told that by doing these things they would be special and precious and shielded from harsh criticism.

And along came RH and criticized them anyway. And in some cases, was believed (RH frequently lied about the victim-group status of her own personal victims) and they lost what they had sacrificed to gain.

So yeah. I can see why they’re unhappy.

Not that I sympathize with them, but I can see it.

Guest

Fair enough.

What it has successfully done is given me even more reasons to look at the typical SJW and laugh.

Guest
1 year 6 months ago

Check Jim Hines new post about this, and a reminder of how an entire cult of people have lost the ability to reason. Basically RH’s violently racist rhetoric disappears in a puff of smoke, while just being a random white person replaces its status.

Stirling is a more open in the comments than he could be on Mixon’s Church of Safety First, White Men Last. The funniest part is how Hines thinks someone calling him “rotten meat” is worse than his routine defamations of 100 million white Americans on zero evidence.

Where do I get the zero evidence from? Hines has admitted it more than once. In his Guest of Honor Australian speech, he said he wished he was exaggerating racism in SFF and then admitted he had no proof. That meant he wished he hadn’t been forced to exaggerate nothing, which for Hines is a par 70 in doublethink.

I’m pretty sure a fleet of asteroids is coming to punish us so get out your little Wile E. Coyote umbrellas.

1) I always thought that while you were essentially right about the SFWA having gone insane, that you were being a bit hyperbolic. Having tried to read the comments on Mixon’s post, well. I’m sorry.

2) They still having people posting, OUT LOUD, that if only the troll had kept to attacking those with “privilege” it would have been okay.

3) Mixon won’t let you call the troll, who drove someone to try suicide “evil” because…. SJW reasons? I dunno.

4) Apparently the troll caused a lot of trouble on boards but nobody would ban it because that’d be racist? Apparently much hand-wringing over this?

5) I see that Alex “bigender normative” MacFarlane is considered a minion of the troll? Alex must have been shocked that her normal tools broke on the granite that is Larry Correia.

I call it the current approved line of thinking. As a SJW of good standing, you do NOT think, you follow the current approved line of thinking. Should you deviate from the current approved line of thinking, you are hereby declared heretic and excommunicated from the realm of Social Justice Warrior and persona non-grata.

The problem with SJW’s thinking is that it’s inevitable the current approved line of thinking will contradict last week’s approved line of thinking, and you now have to either denounced last week’s approved line of thinking and all of those that still embraced it, or exercise some critical thinking. Critical thinking is mutually exclusive to SJW thinking, so that’s not an option.

The SJW’s have it better than Communists in a real dictatorship in that nobody’s going to kill them for deviating from the Party Line. They have it worse in that there is no coherent Party hierarchy, so they are left to figure out the Party Line as best they can from the signals of the whole group, instead of reading it in the Party papers or hearing it in broadcasts.

M-E-N-T-A-L H-E-A-L-T-H I-S-S-U-E-S

We’ve got to start recognizing who these people are. They are not free-wheeling eccentrics but deeply troubled people selling their convoluted rationalizations for their odd obsessions and sociopathic group hatreds and racism as a commitment to compassion and social justice as a solution to my oppression for just existing.

They truly believe they are fighting a feral woman-hating KKK Jim Crow in 1930s Alabama and keeping gay women PoC in safe-spaces using an underground railroad to get them published. They truly believe there are marginalized people hiding in caves like the Fremen while we Harkonnens harvest the spice. The fact they’re doing that in SFF publishing is such a bizarre delusion I have no words to fully describe it. They are not fighting racism since no such movement has ever existed in SFF. They are feeding into the hate of resentful bigots and people who are plain paranoid.

The nice thing is they and their naive water-carriers are really starting to organize into groups where their nuttiness stands out. I’d give a lot to know what a psychiatrist thought of those comments at Mixon’s. I’ll tell you what I see: extremely mentally fragile people on the verge of permanent nervous breakdowns capable of being traumatized by virtually nothing. The problem is they are very good at selling their fake compassion and complex rationalizations from decades of practice at this sort of rhetoric and so they are moving policy.

These are people badly in need of an intervention and the calming hand of an adult to say “Really?”

Mr. May:

What they are is indoctrinated. This is what many of our schools have become. Nothing more than centers of left-think indoctrination.

The scumbags that started this crap in the ’60s and ’70s warned us all that they were gonna do a Long March through our schools and institutions. We didn’t believe them. They did it. Now, in may areas, they own the children through the entire education process.

The whole point of the Gamergate situation has been those horrible, Gamergate-ish trolls who threaten women and minorities on line.

The kicker is that some of the anti-GG voices have stated, for public consumption, that they have had to pack up and leave their houses due to threats. No sane person says that for all the world to see — what you do is call the cops and the FBI and let them know that someone’s making threats on your life, THEN bug out. You’re damned right it’s an appeal to sympathy.

Before GamerGate, I was only dimly aware of what was happening to comic books and completely unaware of it happening in SFF. As an avid SFF fan I was saddened to hear of it, and I hope that one day SFF can be freed of this nonsense as well.

It seems to me SJWs have taken to picking on nerds in general in hope of winning some easy victories against people who don’t thrive in confrontations. Truly we cannot catch a break.

#Gamergate is on WoW forums now, SJW’s better watch out, they have no idea what true trolling is. If you haven’t made someone log off in tears vowing to never play the game again you aren’t a true troll, and I know plenty of people that pay the 15$ a month just so they can do this…grabbing popcorn and logging into the battlenet forums

OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY

I’ve had battle.net friends whining from the anti-GamerGate side. I’m debating outting myself as being one of those racist, sexist haters and seeing what happens.

Guest

The anti-GG had me laughing. Because they REALLY have no idea what they were up against. The tactics they think are so freaking awesome? They have not run up against the average Lineage II Seamonster / c-monster, and the stuff that goes on inside and outside of game would have them unplug their computers for LIFE.

And now they’re going after WoW? really?!

They know not their peril!

Can the forums be read openly? I could use a giggle whenever I take a break from writing/art work stuff. =)

And on that note, I really enjoyed the promotional CGA movie-clip that Blizzard did for Overwatch.

http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/

Kinda wish it were a CG-animated movie, it looks like so much fun.

I watched the gameplay trailer first; I was like “Okay, it’s sort of like Halo, but with a really interesting mix of alternate characters.”

Then I watched the cinematic trailer, and decided “Screw the game, I want the ‘Halo meets the Incredibles’ movie.”

Anyway: yes, the forums can be read without being a member. I’ve been playing WoW for over two years now and I’ve yet to join those forums because I REALLY don’t want to get bogged down in that much stupid. 🙂 I just click when a search pops up what I’m looking for, and then leave. I didn’t even join Wowhead for over a year, and that’s a MUCH better place to hang out.

Guest

My hubby loves watching and keeping an eye out for interesting cinematic trailers and he was the one who pointed it out to me.

And yes, yes I want the “HALO meets The Incredibles’ movie too!!!!!

Seriously, if Blizzard ever went into making full length cinematic movies, I’d CHEERFULLY BUY THEM ALL.

I don’t play WoW at all – I played D3 but haven’t gotten around to playing the current expansion. Don’t have much time to log into L2 either, the way I used to do for YEARS, but I do it sometimes. When I do want to turn my brain off, I log onto Minecraft and work on my farm.

Guest

People have tried getting me into Minecraft, usually because I’m one of those guys who does public shows and displays using Lego. (Usually either a medieval setting or space stuff, the latter for when I display at the National Air & Space Museum twice a year.) ‘Course, I always tell them “So because I build with real Lego, you think I’d enjoy fake Lego?”

However, Blizzard is not the best at creating a coherent story. I had to work for a while to make a non-self-contradictory timeline for my friends and I to roleplay with, and that one is still contradicted by in-game stuff. And the expansion launching in just a few days is extra-weird on story; not because it’s hard to understand, like the Internet seems to think, but because the characters are being forced into the wrong-sized pegholes. My friends and I had to selectively edit the story to make the campaign make sense. :p

I spent about a year and a half saying they needed to hire me as their story-content editor. 🙂 Then I got hired by a different company with truly awesome benefits, so I’m not sure Blizzard can afford me now.

Guest

*grin* There’s Minecraft-related Lego now.

Heh, I prefer Legos myself, but he’s not that big a Star Wars fan. Also, he was on a big dragon kick. (Moving a bit to dinosaurs now. *grin* )

Which is why he also got Ninjago that Christmas. He still plays with the things, so that’s good.

You should see if there’s a LUG in your area (Lego Users Group). I belong to WAMALUG (Washington Metropolitan Area). I’m also active with BrickFair, which is a four-location (currently, anyway) East Coast franchise of Lego conventions.

And if you go on Bricklink, you ought to be able to find a few dinosaur Lego parts for reasonable prices. They’re out of print now, so “reasonable” might be a relative term, but you ought to be able to come up with something.

*apologetic smile* The chances of that existing in a garrison town in Australia aren’t that high, I’m afraid.

And I just realized it’s November. Oh gods. So not looking forward to the Christmas shopping season this year. I’m vaguely tempted to give the kids money and then take them shopping and turn the whole thing into a fun math lesson, but… that’s just not Christmas, y’know?

Guest

I believe there are at least four established LUGs in Australia, and I think two separate conventions and who knows how many enthusiast groups that aren’t actually LUGs (it’s an official designation, and even though the requirements aren’t strenuous they’re still something not everyone meets). But yeah, garrison towns aren’t always near the hub of happenin’. :p

Tell me about it, re> Blizzard and a non-coherent story. They’ve got some gems occasionally (I am the biggest nerd for everything to do with Wrath of the Lich King), but WoW is their Kitchen Sink game and they don’t really care about how much their lore resembles a plate of spaghetti.

Yeah I think with WoW they really just toss the lore more or less out the window…

I like the lore . . . or rather, I like its potential, and said potential exists in spite of the people who created it.

Here’s the timeline if you want to take a look: https://legendsofwarcraft.wordpress.com/timeline/ It took me four tries to find something that could be internally-consistent, and I list the methodology at the bottom.

Eventually, my friends and I are going to finish a particular project and post a story, which includes a few edits for Warlords of Draenor.

And the graphs are based on hearsay, cherry-picking and private emails. However at RH’s actual site, you can see her reviews listed by author name on a single page. They are half men, half women and only a small percentage are virtuous PoC. None of THEM are racially defamed.

ROTYH herself writes at her site “…though I’ve called R. Scott Bakker a shit-eating roach (and will happily continue to!), you can be sure I won’t be calling any minority writer anything like that, and have never done so.”

In other words Mixon’s post is pure bullshit. You only have to Google M. J. Locke (alias of Mixon) “Patriarch’s Day Part 4” to understand the nobility of Ladyland and the “toxic gas” that is the straight white male. The real pie-chart looks more like “GUARANTEED 100% WHITE OR THAT CONSTITUTION THINGY BACK!”

Meanwhile RH has quotes which number in their literal hundreds like “… we consider buffaloes especially stupid as animals go. The perfect analogy for white men.”

One of RH’s posts alone has “Whitey McWhite,” “Caucasoid,” “Aryan” and “Ms Honky.”

“IT IS TIME TO BEAT THE ROTTEN CARCASS OF A DEAD WHITE MAN” is how RH refers to a post about Tolkien. Her argument that Tolkien is a racist in part consists of the statement “straight white males are not usually very self-aware.”

You’ve heard of all-day candy “Jawbreakers” – well, breaking down the logic in that sentence would be like breaking down a “candy” ball-bearing.

As proof of this woman’s psychotic break from reality, RH wrote this in all sincerity:

“Because we must simper for whitey every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every month of every year for our entire lives with the happy, happy knowledge that so will the next generation after that and the one after it, forever. This is why I can’t ignore the luxurious jacuzzi tub of privilege they enjoy.”

What we’re seeing is a cult of psychotic bigots and naive morons suckered into buying into all of it.

A “PoC” “anti-racist” woman angry at Mixon’s post and John Scalzi for his “lack of intersectionality” hilariously wrote this racist response at Locke:

“Having PoC friends does not add legitimacy to your actions, white person. You are still white. You are still benefiting from an imbalance of power and this will not change in your lifetime… Women must be put in their place. People of Colour must be put in their place. Young people must be put in their place. And so on, and so forth, ad infinitum, until you, white person, probably straight cishet and able-bodied, have put everyone in their place and are left standing atop a pile of bodies.”

The response at Mixon’s house of fun was along the lines of “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

Scalzi is not lacking in “intersectionality.” Remember, Scalzi asked us to “bone up” on “intersectionality” and on his site linked us to a PDF about the “multiplicatively privileged” which quotes the nutty lesbian anti-heterosexual feminist Audre Lorde as being the “‘white, thin, male, young, heterosexual, Christian, and financially secure.’”

Lorde in turn enthusiastically supported the Andrea Dworkin who wrote “‘Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies'” and also this:

“‘The incest taboo can be destroyed only by destroying the nuclear family as the primary institution of the culture. The nuclear family is the school of values in a sexist, sexually repressed society'” and “‘Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies'”

You can’t get any more intersectional than Scalzi.

And Steven Gould and Jim Hines want us to #JustListen to ANY woman, no matter how crazy or we default to far right wing haters and bigots. If I just listen to these morons I’ll be plucking the Magna Carta out of some ruin and shouting “Eureka” about 1 million years in the future.

Mixon’s post represents the week Vox Day declared moral high ground by virtue of “compared to what?” and kicked out the entirety of the SFWA, leaving only himself.

My own personal response is a number of creative vulgarities you can name for yourself since they include all ever invented plus “ha-ha” to the Nth power and stretching to the Kuiper Belt.

Like I said in another post,

I sorta liked ROTYH.

Not because of her methods, or her ideology. She was a high-order troll.

No, I liked her because buried in her rantings their were kernals of truth. When she went after “the windup girl” for being lazy writing (on top of being racist and sexist) I laughed out loud. Only because so many folks in the sjw/sfwa/worldcon world gave it high praises and claimed it was the best thing ever, simply because it fit “the narrative that Sf needs” (actual quote from a sf inteligenti).

She did that multiple times…I really laughed when mary kowal went to rotyh’s blog with her hat in hand begging forgiveness for using the term “half-breed”…or when Scalzi (and that twit cat valente) was defending ROTYH during her feud with peter watts and rscott bakker by saying just because she was hypebolic and insulting in her death threats calling her a “rabid animal” was misogynist, or racist, or something.

Watching the confusion ROTYH caused was delightful.

Stalin said some truthful things too.

It’s an exhibition of power: “You have to stick to PC-ness, but I can break with the approved narrative if I feel like it.” It’s also supposed to hearten the enemies of the person getting the truthful talking-to, and thus make them liked a little by onlookers such as you. “You and I both know this, and so you’re better than the rest of the twits who don’t know; but I’m the one who came out and said it, so I’m better and you should support me.”

Here’s some funny backstory: I used to read RH in real-time. I couldn’t believe the pass she was getting or get over seeing SJWs like Liz Bourke, Alex MacFarlane, Shaun Duke, Jonathan McCalmont, Aliette de Bodard and others making sympathetic remarks in the comments sections of posts that were over-the-top Stormfront.

In response, I wrote a bunch of wacky, insulting and vulgar underground comix-like stuff about the SJWs themselves, minus the racial and sexual group defamation, and with SJW racist quotes backing up what I said. I knew what the response would be. Without listing all the quotes in response I’ll say I was called “batshit racist” though I left out any racist stuff, aside from paraphrasing actual SJW quotes they didn’t recognize as their own.

In some of the posts I even referenced I was doing RH “performance rage”, (de Bodard apologist quote) and they still didn’t get it. Significantly, de Bodard has since edited her apologist bullshit about RH’s death threats from her blog where she uses that quote; probably because I linked to it. I re-linked it using the Wayback Machine after she scrubbed it.

Lacking any sense of humor or satire, or their own bigotry, the SJWs imagined me as Adolph Hitler but instead saw themselves in a mirror. What a surprise they didn’t like what they saw, though my version was considerably cleaner, and again, satire, not the ideologically serious bullshit they march around in jackboots.

In other words, a much lighter and satirical version of RH had the SJWs confirm they are “batshit racist” multiplied. Thank you for your stamp of approval SJW morons. Pranking humorless racist morons is as easy as eating apple pie and washing it down with a nice glass of milk. I think of the neo-Nazis in The Blues Brothers when I think of SJWs.

Now clear out of my genre. I’ve got a lot of work to do cleaning up the mess you made.

This is a byproduct of being aligned with the dominant view of popular culture. Everyone they know thinks like them, as do the people in the media they consume. The vitriol isn’t directed toward them, and having not experienced it or seen it directed to their friends, they are disproportionately impacted. Without ever being challenged, much less attacked, they have no callouses or emotional endurance. This is often compounded in writing communities, which are frequently very very soft. There’s probably a sense of betrayal as well. She was supposed to be one of them, and she did the bad thing. As always, traitors are more hated than common enemies. Worry not, they’re in the process of taking away her club card, and will have plenty of time to hate on their usual targets soon enough.

“Privilege sounds awesome. You guys should totally get some of it.” I was brought up to believe that every privilege carries with it corresponding and countervailing responsibility. If one neglects the responsibility, one’s title to the privilege becomes invalid. All right then, if as a White man I have Privilege, what are the corresponding responsibilities? Too, if one enacts those responsibilities, wherein is the criticism of the corresponding privilege valid?

what are the corresponding responsibilities?
Simple answer: guilt.
You must let the privilege-guilt flow through you. You must come to the understanding that everthing you can do, everything you have, everything you achieved and will achieve is only because of privilege.
As the proud owner of all the possible privileges out there (except thin-privilege, but am working on that) I am slowly coming to the realisation that 1) I was pretty lucky with my starting position in Life, and 2) I will never feel guilty for achieving something by using that privilege.
Then again I think I was lost for the SJW-cause when as a child i started playing with Mecano.

Okay, this just begs for this:

The White Man’s Burden
Rudyard Kipling

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Send forth the best ye breed–
Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives’ need;
To wait in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild–
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half-devil and half-child.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain
To seek another’s profit,
And work another’s gain.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
The savage wars of peace–
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper–
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go mark them with your living,
And mark them with your dead.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better,
The hate of those ye guard–
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light:–
“Why brought he us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?”

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Ye dare not stoop to less–
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples
Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man’s burden–
Have done with childish days–
The lightly proferred laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

“So enjoy this SJW cannibal feeding frenzy, sane people, because tomorrow they will be back to telling you that you are enjoying yourself wrong.”

I find it surprising you’d say that after praising how steadfast and unrelenting gamers are. I’ve been paying close attention to gamergate and the people within it, and many of them are willing to keep it going for over a decade. I haven’t seen a single one willing to quit any time within the next six months. In fact, they regularly advise each other to take breaks to avoid getting burnt out because they’re in it for the long haul. Almost all of them are well aware that this is going to take years to deal with, and they’re more than willing to wait that long.

These are people that waited fifteen years for Duke Nukem Forever to come out. These are people who can grind mindlessly for hours a day every day for years. SJWs picked a fight with people willing to fight back that aren’t going to stop until they win. SJWs are over.

Speaking about SJWs in general, you might get a kick out of the guy I’ve got over at my blog right now. I can’t really call him a troll, because he does seem to be trying to debate. However, he just trotted out the “everything is political” line. I had to ask him out taking a leak was political, and was it because I went standing up rather than sitting down?

Seriously, what is it with these people?

Guest

Yeah, I really appreciate what you’re doing too. On my end of things, I honestly am aware that most of the people who’d like nothing more than to write books don’t have the technological resources I’m lucky enough to have (read: literal in house network security sysadmin) to deal with the hacktivism a lot of these guys do, are capable of, and flatly, get away with.

I sometimes wish I could be more open and detailed about the sheer level of harassment I get, but I can’t, for security reasons – not just my own’s, but my family’s, especially my children’s, due to the nature of the threats I’ve been receiving.

So, I’d be surprised about who had agreed with you probably, but not about what they agree with you about. If they’re scared, and they’re big names in the industry… I’m just a little indie with one little novella under my belt so far and a few books co-authored. To the gibbering horde, I’m prey, because I never have, and never will bend the knee to their wishes.

Guest

As you can see from Mixon’s crowd, though they bleat about equal rights they have no interest in equality before the law. In principle what they dispense is the same as a type of color coding in apartheid S. Africa. There are shades of citizenship – literally. They themselves argue from positions of race and gender where the most oppressed has the largest voice and the most credibility. It is a bigot’s dream come true as well of that of people with sociopathic mental health issues. How much money would you bet about the use of prescription meds among SJWs as compared to those who oppose them?

In other words, they perfectly mirror a kinder gentler version of RH’s race gender hierarchy and RH herself learned it at their feet. Mixon’s post does not represent a clash of principles but is instead in-fighting among members of the same Klan who have the same enemy.

When you think of the sharp perceptions and insights needed to write literature, especially SF, the idea these people will produce anything worth reading is simply laughable. That endemic failure only produces more reasons to believe they are being discriminated against.

Though each SJW is convinced they argue from the same perceptive viewpoint of Orwell in 1984, in fact these are the people Orwell warned about. SJWs possess no tools of self-criticism that would allow them to see that, because one must have principles and be willing to accept and learn from personal failure.

SJWs are a cult of failure which denies reality itself. It is as if the last place nags of racetracks around the country organized into a union and created a meticulous social science that explained why they should actually be winning half the races. They suffer from a shared hysteria they have successfully involved allies in by producing that meticulous fantasy as oppression.

Larry is obviously commenting on something he knows nothing about. Benjanun had numerous pro short stories sale in a fairly small time frame and also released a novel. More than that, she had befriended many of the same people she was attacking under her pseudonym.

Instead of addressing any of this, Larry has decided to use this as an oppurtunity to type ‘SJW’ over and over again. Because obviously people who are against trolling must be SJW’s! So stupid, Larry. So stupid.

Hugos aren’t biased toward a liberal cause. They’re voted on by people. The people that seem to be most engaged in the Hugos seem to be more liberal. Or, maybe, they just seem to not like Larry and the other ‘Sad Puppies.’ It’s not a liberal’s fault that the Hugo audience likes them better. Awards are always, ALWAYS, about popularity among the voting crowd. Larry doesn’t have enough, even with a campaign.

If someone like Larry Correia would simply STFU and get on with their career they’d have nothing to fear from the supposed ‘SJW’s.’ You can even share your political viewpoints without losing favor. What you can’t do is be combative towards large groups of people and expect it not to have an effect. Or be clearly motivated by hatred (like Vox).

Which, I should clarify, I don’t think Larry is. I think he’s just a loud mouth punk who’d needed to be disciplined as a child and taught a few manners. Why he feels the need to associate with the Evil League of Assholes is beyond me, especially when there’s others associated with this philosophical league who are bottom feeding scum.

I’ll take any responses off the air.

Wow. That’s some pretty concentrated bile right there. Perhaps he’s calling them SJW’s because they call themselves that? Just, you know, throwing that out there.

So the people voting are liberal and actively seek to ostracize stuff that doesn’t fit their narrative, but there isn’t bias. A dictionary (perhaps applied directly to the head?) might be in order.

Everyone has biases. The best way to filter them out is by having a large sample size – but the Hugo awards are voted on by something like 0.1% of the fantasy/sci-fi audience, and even that guestimate might be generous.

Be quiet and get on with their career is pretty much just a nice way of saying shut up and don’t make waves. One side here wants their opposition to shut up, the other wants the first to keep talking. I could explain the significance, but that’s almost a dead horse.

And while your anti-Vox hatred is cute its a bit misplaced at the moment. We’re talking about the vile stuff one of the in crowd did, not what Vox did, supposedly did, or in fact didn’t do.

As for taking any responses “off air” A) you don’t deserve the site views, B) even if you did that’s rather arrogant hi-jacking, and C) its basically a low attempt at disguising a drive by comment.

I could go on, but I’ll tag out, I’m sure someone else wants a crack at it.

Jared,

No, nobody calls themselves Social Justice Warriors in any serious sense.

The AWARDS aren’t biased. It’s not the Hugo’s fault that Larry doesn’t have fans who like him enough to outvote anyone else.

I’m all for sharing political points, but not belittling individuals or groups of individuals, as this blog post so clearly does.

As long as Larry freely associates with Vox, it’s relevant.

And yet, you adopted your name from Vox.

So, just who is more pathetic? My vote doesn’t go to Larry.

You must not know the people I do – I have seen SJW applied to people as a badge of honor quite often. There have even now been movements to expand it to Social Justice Cleric, Social Justice Rogue, and Social Justice Wizard. Serious or not they call themselves that, just as John C Wright, Larry, and Sarah call themselves the Evil League of Evil to poke fun at the utterly limited imaginations of the people attacking them. I mean seriously, even if every single thing about Vox is correct they say about him, he is a far cry from the epitome of evil, not having actually put any of these hateful things into the realm of action.

The award is intrinsically linked with the people who decide it. It is completely factual to say that the American elections are biased towards American interests, because it is Americans voting on it. WorldCON has been steadily becoming less and less relevant with a shrinking attendance trend, and even the biggest voting total ever is smaller than even a regional Comic Con attendance in its first year.

So if Larry can be tarred because of his tenuous relationship with Vox, but to say anything about the SJW’s because one of their cherished in group turns out to be a vile backstabbing Troll is out of bounds? Got it.

“The AWARDS aren’t biased.”

It’s just a coincidence the supporters of the core ideology of The Fellowship of Andrea Dworkin swept both the Hugos and Nebulas. It’s just a coincidence that Ancillary Justice, an SF novel that defaults to the most fervent dreams of Charlotte Bunch, Jill Trebilcot and Andrea Dworkin had an unprecedented sweep of SFF awards.

That Fellowship that is routinely statistical zero in Amazon rankings and in larger American culture. That Fellowship is routinely non-existent in Publisher’s Weekly rankings. That Fellowship’s presence on Tor.com is far greater than their sales figures at Tor Books.

Once again we have a person who literally doesn’t understand what the word “biased” means or how to determine it if they did.

Do your homework before accusing others of not doing theirs.

One of your analogies is simply wrong. Larry knows what Vox is all about. Folks who associated with Benjanun didn’t know that she was Requires Hate/Winterfox. There was deception involved and Larry certainly can’t make that claim about Vox.

If anyone’s taking up the SJW label it’s only for comedic effect. I saw that Hines has talked about the Social Justice League, but it’s completely tongue-in-cheek.

Bullshit. Now we know you’re lying.

Especially since multiple people knew who she really was, and backed her various plays.

Or, maybe Larry isn’t the one who doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
