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.

So SJW Kickstarters are nothing more than requests for offerings to cleanse the soul of white guilt?

Personally, I'm waiting to hear what the rest of England will finally do about all those people living there of Norman descent.

It's time for those who have benefitted from the colonialist policies of their ancestors to begin reparations to the people who had the integration of a foreign culture forced upon them.

"They're paying for absolution" is too  optimistic. It implies that you actually get absolution after paying. I'm sure most of the SJWs who buy this garbage still feel guilty afterwards. The Medieval Church was more generous in this regard.

I think a simpler (and more generous) way to put this would be that people patronize the arts based on political, ethical, and religious considerations. Wokeness is somewhere between an ethical framework and a pseudo-religion. I don't have a problem putting their money there if that's what they believe in. I'd rather not put my gaming budget (or my tax dollars) into it however.

Yup. At least, at the moment, that's the flavor of the year. At other times it was other leftist causes: environmentalism, feminism, LGBT, all of which still get second-rank these days of course.
