This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Y The Last Man, INTERNET OUTRAGE IS MANDATORY!
« on: August 08, 2021, 04:29:44 PM »
New series on FX, based on a comic series.



My first reaction: Jesus is this gonna be a "Kill da menz!" show?
My 2nd reaction: Hm, maybe not.
My 3rd reaction: Oh joy, now the Trans activist community are pissed.

Should be good for some yuks from RPG.net

https://forum.rpg.net/index.php?threads/damian-may-receives-a-%F0%9F%9A%AB-thirty-day-ban-sexism-advocating-eugenics.885246/

My 4th reaction: Shows are no longer about the shows. They're about 15 minutes of internet outrage.

Here we go again.

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Spoiler Alert: half the women die in episode 2 because there's nobody to open jars or kill spiders.

The RPG.net link is hysterical. May the outrage begin.

Once the show starts, there will be many more bannings over there because there's literally no way for them to have any conversation about this show while appeasing all the SJW rules.

Yeah, this is gonna be entertaining. Y: The Last Man wasn't a bad yarn -- the repercussions of having half the biosphere (minus one guy and his pet monkey) keel over are pretty bad.

But considering modern day social mental retardation, I expect there to be screaming galore.

Well, since the general consensus of commentators is that the whole disease-thing in this series started from a clandestine American biological attack on China that backfired, I can see why this show pleases Hollywood's Chinese masters.  Now is a good time to deflect away from the fact that pretty much the opposite just happened in real life...

I'm waiting for the rest of the world to wake up to the fact that CoronaChan was a joint US-China project funded by Fauci the Clown. Because when the world wakes up, there's gonna be a demand in the UN for reparations...from the USA, as everybody knows not to piss off China.

Those Bourne Supremacy fight scenes in the trailer are hysterical.

We have a few Cornoavirus threads in Pundit's forum already. Can we keep on topic in this thread?

I read the first... one? two? ... graphic novels. Then I tuned out because they were portraying one political party as saints (guess) and the other as idiots.

To be fair, it was a bit more nuanced than that. But not a lot more.

Also, the sister Amazon cult was terrible.

If such a thing ever happened in real life, there will be A LOT of people in for a very rude awakening.

Not too long ago a woman, buying into feminist dogma, started her own television production company. Women-only (of course no complaints about sex discrimination), etc.

Well, anyone who knows anything about human nature (in this case women) could guess at what happened: drama, backbiting, chaos, oh and drama. Lots of drama. It all soon fell apart.

In other words, for all the hype about women in STEM blah blah civilization would fall apart so quickly in two months tops it would make "Damnation Alley" look like "The Sound of Music."
I'm 55. My profile won't record this. It's only right younger members know how old I am.

Even when this was a comic I thought it was heavy handed, I can't imagine how bad it'll be reimagined in CURRENT YEAR.

They have already pre-emptively banned discussion of it. https://forum.rpg.net/index.php?threads/teaser-trailer-for-y-the-last-man-series-on-hulu.884821/page-4#post-24001813

Yup. The reality of even a 'gender balanced' world mortality rate of about 20% would be apocalyptic.

A gender imbalanced world mortality rate of 51% would become a 90% mortality rate within a month.

World Harem pulls no punches with the same idea. And the situation is even worse in that setting as the women had relegated the men to the technical tasks of running the machinery and computers and when 99.99% of the male population dies things go to complete hell with most of the landscape outside the big cities in ruins or a mess.

Also the femnazis behind the whole thing totally underestimated just how much the other 90+% of the female population wants real dick and/or to have kids - and are starting to go insane.

So the SJWs hate the show because the virus kills transwomen and doesn’t care about how they identify?

Looks like the first 3 episodes dropped on Hulu this week, with a new one on Mondays.
