Smash these pumpkins, SJWs :)

I saw an interview this morning. Fifteen minutes after reading this, I’d written a song in honor of Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame being added to the growing list of artists sick of bossy Social Justice Warriors. I present to you the song:

Bullets Are Scary So I’m Triggered But Butterfly Wings Are Okay (as long as they aren’t Sexist Butterflies)

Social Justice is a vampire, sent to drain
creative freedom, Twitter mobs go up in flames
What do artists get, for their pain ay ain?
Pajama boy desires! And blue haired games
Even though we know-I suppose we’ll show
If this doesn’t rhyme, it’s ‘cause you’re racist!
Duh duh duh duh dun
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
Once artistic freedom is lost it can never be saved
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!
You gave in. Now we own you,
but can you fake it, for just one more Hugo?
And what do you want? To be left alone.
But what have you got?
When your books are lame
Even though social justice knows
you can’t win and it shows
a cold wind blows
DUN DUN DUN CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
Once artistic freedom is lost it can never be saved
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter!
(Insert cool guitar Riff here!)
Tell me I’m the social justice one. Tell me there’s no free ones
Che Guevara is our favorite son
Tell me I’m the social justice one. Tell me there’s no Wrong Fun
And all the good reviews go to yoooooooouuuuuuuu
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on Twitter
Once artistic freedom is lost it can never be saved
Despite all my rage I’m still just a land whale on TWIIIIIIITEEEER

This is going to be one of those song lyrics I’ll wonder about for years: “Pajama boy desires! And blue haired games” ???

You aren’t paying close enough attention. Pajama boy is a reference to a Christmas promotion for Obama care. He can be found here:

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2013/12/opinion-rich-lowry-obamacare-affordable-care-act-pajama-boy-an-insufferable-man-child-101304.

The blue haired reference is due to the fact that almost all of the die hard feminist SJWs have dyed at least part of their hair blue. Why they are attracted to this shade of hair dye is a mystery for the ages but it is frighteningly consistent.

I followed that link and I only have more questions…

“If this doesn’t rhyme, it’s ‘cause you’re racist!”

Is there a tune to go with this, and if so, could you provide a link? (I’m suspecting it’s a Smashing Pumpkins song, but I’m not really familiar with that group so have no hope of finding it on my own).

Despite all their angst they still need to squeeze into Spanx?

Josh

Out of curiosity do you have link to the interview that inspired this song?

Bugmaster

The lack of rhyming and scansion in “land whale on Twitter” as opposed to “rat in a cage” triggers me. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m OMW to the UN to complain about it.

(also, aren’t they on Tumblr more than Twitter ?)

You stop and shout the”Land Whale onTwitter!” part, in the fashion of “White Punks on Dope!”

In the case of our own genre the “tribalism” Bokhari writes of is a racial-sexual one of SJWs who become furious if you don’t emphasize our differences via racial-sexual “privilege” and assumptions about where racism and sexism live based on nothing more than race and sex; not an actual deed by an individual – which is how the principles behind law work – but the crimes of entire groups – which is how supremacy works. As you read this the usual suspects of SFF who vote for Nebulas and Hugos and decide who will be published or signal-boosted are still… Read more »

So does that mean that nominating actual Nazi material for the retro Hugos would not be more offensive than the SJWs already are?

James May

SJW SFF is an anti-Serling, anti-Constitutional, anti-human rights movement which entered our genre in 2009. It opposes due process, equal protection and free speech. It is full of “banhammer,” “don’t read the comments,” analogies to blood libels and general demonization theories which light up tens of millions of people based on their race and sex. It exists in direct opposition to Golden Age SF, or even Aesop’s Fables for that matter.

James May
Guest

And anyone who’s read Barnes and Noble’s 25 best SFF novels of 2015 should be really disheartened by how much this garbage has been mainstreamed. That list is a disgrace.

Richard McEnroe
Guest

Barnes & Noble will not be a factor too much longer. The SJW’s are a material reason why.

C.J. Carella

As long as they keep pandering to a pack of hipsters who’ll praise the books and then try to pirate them for free (if they bother reading them at all), they’ll keep losing market share, both to publishers like Baen and by indie writers.

Hugh Mannity

There are a couple on that list that I’d consider reading, but only because I’ve read other works by the authors and am willing to give them a chance.

James May
Guest
I didn’t mean the whole list, but it is corrupt. There is no way that list is random or based on merit. It has that stink of WisCon’s race/gender crusade about it anyone knows who’s followed this weird cult. People like Alistair Reynolds, Peter Hamilton and David Brin are many others are simply disappeared by this cult. The only reason they throw the occasional bone to Jack McDevitt is because his two popular series have female protagonists. I love both those series and his Infinity Beach also has a woman as protag and I think it may be the single… Read more »

I just found a great article, and a great anti-SJW label for myself: “cultural libertarian”. Not sure that I’ve seen you use it … check it out: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/24/rise-of-the-cultural-libertarians/

James May

That is a great piece, but although we didn’t use that term our movement in SFF is more or less the same and pre-dates Milo’s entrance. Having said that, Milo is doing a great job on focusing the world’s attention on the sick movement behind all this. It’s no coincidence all of his targets have been Third Wave Feminists like Anita Sarkeesian, Brianna Wu, Shanley Kane, Randi Harper, Sarah Nyberg, Arthur Chu, Julie Bindel, the annual NUS conference of feminist student unions in the U.K., Bahar Mustafa, and Charlotte Proudman. His other target has been Black Lives Matter, however, when… Read more »

Heard earlier that Milo’s account has been de-verified by Twitter. Twitter gonna be sorry…

richard mcenroe

This is where Twitter learns that they are not, in fact, the internet…

James May
Guest
You don’t have to be a genius to observe that Third Wave Feminists get ’em while they’re young. They target an impressionable and isolated 12-22 yr. old age group in comics, SFF, video gaming and colleges. To get away with that you also have to target free speech and in those exact venues. It’s no surprise Milo speaks at colleges (been banned as often as not) and has involved himself in gaming, the largest cultural youth demo compared to comics and SFF. The difference from SJWs is Milo asks a lot of hard questions propagandists with banhammers would prefer not… Read more »

And it is very hard for the SJWs to attack Milo since he is a “victim” within one of their “underrepresented” groups (being gay).

Richard McEnroe
Guest

That’s why they have to do it without actually defining the offense, a LA Milo and Twitter.

“You know very well what you’ve done, young man!” is the Battlecry of the Domineering Mother and the SJW Harpy.

Feather Blade

Not particularly.

He’s conservative, beside which, he’s a white male, and admits it, so that’s probably enough for the SJWs to count him as straight.

Synova
Guest
I honestly don’t think he’s *conservative* at all. He’s just willing to call them on their bullsh*t instead of pretending it’s not middling hip deep bullsh*t. Sane people on the left (yes, there are some) seem too worried about accidentally failing to affirm some nonsense because rules, you know, and it’s important to be kind to the mentally ill. Problem is that never pushing back when someone says something flagrantly absurd (such as… chain mail bikini clad barbarian warriors don’t belong on the cover of the SFWA newsletter, which is like claiming it’s wrong to put a cow on the… Read more »

Milo has taken the label “cultural libertarian” as his own, from the Breitbart article.

James May
Guest
Anyone who criticizes Third Wave Feminist ideology defaults to “conservative” or “wing nut.” If I don’t like being racially and sexually defamed every single day both in fiction and non-fiction then it must be because Fox News and Rush Limbaugh told me so. TWFs like to pretend they’re just “liberals” fighting the good fight rather than the anti-straight white male supremacist ideology they so obviously are. That means that by default any actual liberals get dragged in to supporting TWF whether they like it or not. The idea this braindead cult supports equal protection, free speech or due process is… Read more »

I really despise most social media and especially loathe Facebook….yet with family, friends, and loved ones scattered all over creation, FB has ended up being the only way I can reliably stay in touch with them.

It’s quite frustrating.

Khazlek
Guest

Why, in a criticism of people who look for marginalization on the basis of sex under every rock, do you want to call them land whales.

Achillea

To ask the question is to answer it.

So if a svelte feminist makes a crazy statement, it isn’t crazy anymore? And we wonder why people pay attention to the idiot opinions of actors.

Afrofuturism? I had no idea that was even a thing. I still can’t figure out why people can’t just ignore the race/sex/gender/etc of the author and read. If they enjoy the book, awesome. If they don’t, perhaps they should just add that author to their “I don’t like” list and move on. For instance. Larry is a Portuguese Mormon or something, right? If someone came up to me and said “hey man, I’m reading this Portuguese/Mormon Urban Fiction that I think you might like”, I may have shied a bit away from reading it because… well… I have no frame… Read more »

Welcome to the new awards selection culture in SFF. Basically whoever delivers or supports the delivery of the most racial and sexual slurs, incitements and demonization theories against men, whites and heterosexuals gets a literary award. An eccentric nomination process at best. It makes the Black Entertainment Television Awards look like a benign meritocracy. And by the way, you’ve just seen the first step in the destruction of the Oscars with the usual crying, shaming and witchhunting tactics. They will soon go the way of the Hugos and Nebulas but there’ll be a lot more fighting because of the money… Read more »

Entertainment Weekly is a willing enabler of Hollywood’s rape culture.

Look how common it was and is in movies to show wine as a part of a ‘romantic’ dinner prior to sexual activity. Someone who recently drank wine cannot consent to sexual activity, making all those scenes celebrations of rape.

Consider also Roman Polanski and casting couch stuff.

Boycott Entertainment Weekly. Boycott all video of members of the Screen Actors Guild.
