Somewhere, there’s a little beagle puppy who’s a little less sad now that attention is being paid to his plight.

(Well, that and the fact that the little beagle puppy was looking at the article on the Sports Illustrated Swimswuit Edition covergirl that was next to the Hugo post at Big Hollywood. That may also have made him less sad).

Did you read the Wil Wheaton link in the article? Wow. No matter how far left you are, there’s someone even further…and further…and further…

I’ve seen him identify as – if you can actually believe it – a libertarian. Whether he still does or not, I don’t know.

Dave W.

Wheaton has no idea what a libertarian actually is.

Oh, and since his name came up: “Shut up, Wesley”.

Doqz
Guest

At this point ‘libertarian’ has essentially become a term bereft of all meaning. It being appropriated a catch-all by a lot of poli-hipsters who want the appearance of autonomy from either party diluted it into complete incoherence. At the point where you have both Bill Maher and Glenn Beck, Milton Friedman and Alex Jones identify by the same label….

Dr. Mauser

I would chalk it up to libs trying to destroy the term Libertarian because it represents an ideological threat.

Wheaton’s an arrogant twit. I’m pretty sure he was the one who claimed on Twitter that the concern over ISIS was conservative fear mongering, or something along those lines.

It’s unfortunate that a lot of people these days are only familiar with his game-related stuff, because he’s an idiot when anything political comes up.

I’d really love it if this got picked up by a few more sites – It’s an excellent article, but sadly it’s preaching mostly to the choir. Publication in several of the SF magazines and on-line sites would help, there are a huge number of folks that don’t pay attention to this to really even know it’s happening and for the most part I think they’ll be unhappy when they find out. If you have a site, cross linking to the article is always a good thing.

Really, Mr. Wendig. Well I’ll tell you what. What if we agreed on a definition of the word “bigot” and then matched quote for quote and put ten grand on the line. One grand for every one of yours by a different person and one grand for every one of mine. They must be Award nominated by one of the top five awards going back the last 4 years. Let me predict the final score in terms of percentages: Me: 95%, You: 5%. You: Lose ten grand, and in short order. I have such a rich field of sick quotes… Read more »

good one, Mr. May!
If these are the “reality” based folks, they are so far on the other side of reality that they meet it coming back through the wormhole, or something. Maybe Wendig can actually write–but is what he writes worth reading?

James May
Guest

Let’s be honest about Glyer’s preening about “moral contradictions” and Wendig’s hypocrisy: a gay gender abolition feminist uses “white dude parade” as an insult against Jonathan Ross on the CHANCE he MIGHT say “fat broad parade” when emceeing the Hugos. Any people who can embrace that gulf of a double standard are too stupid to engage or associate with.

Here’s the non-bigoted side Wendig goes to:

Really? Any quotes or documentation? It’s always “they” and “these.”

https://twitter.com/Karnythia/status/563727770480414720

Really? The kind of logic where one provides names, quotes and documentation instead of unsourced group libel and racial innuendoes? In Orwellian terms, Wendig certainly ran to the right place.

Anyone else notice what I’m noticing? By my count there were at least 77 outraged SJW blog posts about the SFWA Red Sonja “ladies” nonsense. Where are these people now? They used to swarm even someone like Andrew Fox for one single post who nobody otherwise even knew about. Sure, the worst of them are still huddling on Twitter but even these fools know they’ve overreached. They’re still making hollow comments about how they’re winning and how gamergate failed although the publications caved into gamergate demands, not those of SJWs. What else did you expect? SJWs are liars. Every time… Read more »

I suspect the wording is poetic license on his part. Feminists often find it convenient to make certain claims about the past. A certain set of these appear to be wholly false, and entirely made up. There is the habit of painting all goddesses with the same brush. We have some documentation about goddesses whose worship does not fit their model. There is the claim of a homogenous prehistoric super culture which, if truly as described, would imply that we never find the butchered skeletons of ancient hominids and humans. There is the related claim of female only super powers… Read more »

Andrea Dworkin uses the term “neolithic” in her 1974 book Woman-Hating. She claimed they possessed magic, lived in England until the 17th century, were matriarchal and lived under trees. That’s from memory but it is essentially correct. Furthermore they passed on their magic to a secret society of witches, and Dworkin claims 9 million women were killed as witches by Christian medieval societies over a period of 300 (400 in a later book of hers) years. Feminist icon Audre Lorde blurbed the book jacket as a thing we needed more of.

They seem to conflate two things. Membership in World Con is fairly easy, and lets you vote on the Hugo. Membership in the SFWA lets you vote on the, IIRC, Nebula. Also, Membership in the SFWA is, or was, a little bit more difficult.

No white folks in SFF do this. If they did they’d be called white supremacist racists. They are called that by this exact same bunch anyway, just for existing. That is what you call a “con,” as in “con game.”

James May
Guest

I am thinking of putting together a book called Social Justice: 1,000 Quotes by Fifty Writers in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Community.

No commentary, just quotes. That way I can help SFF to achieve its goal of a vibrant and diverse community where the marginalized are given their due, racism and sexism are eliminated, the disabled are recognized, white privilege is critiqued, women are acknowledged to be fully human and the oppressive binary of heterosexuality gives way to a brighter and more just future.

There will be zero mention of actual science fiction and fantasy.

Such a book will probably constitute the most successful and widely read of any of those author’s works.

You could do this in a format similar to RAH’S ‘The Notebooks of Lazarus Long’. We could illuminate it with LC cartoons and pictures of manatees. I’m not even kidding. Kickstarter anyone? What would a print run of 1000 cost? Can you publish someone else’s tweets w/o their consent?

Kickstarter? Did they get rid of the racist running their “community” or whatever her title was? I never heard a resolution to that, just stopped going to the site and backing projects.

I for one love the way Glyer uses “moral self-contradictions.” This bunch of people is the most singularly unaware group of people I have ever run across.

The fact they are SF writers and fans who are the literal embodiment of Orwell’s unheeded SF warning novel only adds more frosting to the Bizarro-cake.

Surprised that Glyver cares enough to, well, care. I wonder what the source of his personal animus against LC is – the world is full of people that he may not agree with, after all. Is this simply a cynical ploy to drive clicks? LC has a lot of daily traffic here – are folks visiting from MHN to 770 pumping up that latter?

I dunno about that, on the other hand, one post to File 770 has netted me an insane number of hits on my wordpress (Insane being 49 the first day and 35 the next, but it trails off fast).
