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.

I know this is straying outside the RPG topic, but topics like this being discussed is one of the main reasons I come here.  Not a freakin' peep from what I can see at other 'places'.

Some might argue the point, but how is this any different from TSR (part deux) as a company, getting lambasted over far less, and that seemed an a-ok topic to liberally throw around without the ban hammers coming out.  What a double standard.

So glad this forum exists, at the least, to provide a differing viewpoint on the pushed narrative.

GI Joe does not fight for America, Hot Wheels run on solar subsidies that make your gas prices higher, and the Transformers do not believe that one day "All will be one". Instead they are all "Unicron did nothing wrong" now.  My Little Pony is the People's Pony.

  Hot Wheels is Mattel, and we should find out on Friday if they're ahead of or behind the curve on this road to the Abyss. :)

Ever passing day just confirms that I was right when I decided not to let my kids play D&D.

Fortunately the OSR has many better and more palatable alternatives.

In a sane world the President and managing director of Hasbro would thank Mr. Johnson for outing the Marxism infiltrators in Hasbro's marketing and HR departments. He would then fire them all and Make Mr. Johnson a full time employee.

In this world Mr. Johnson is totally fired for fine-print employment violations and is now blacklisted.


Pundits video made some good points and we can look to South Africa a s a good indicator of how things go. And we should also be reading good histories of the Spanish civil war.

Apartheid was a massive mistake. The Boers wanted the benefits of cheap African labor without having to live in the same society as them. Trying to have your cake and eat it too always goes wrong. Always. A large group held down as second class citizens was infiltrated by Marxists; what could possibly go wrong??

That being said, by every objective social and economic measure; Black South Africans quality of life has absolutely gone through the floor in the post-apartheid era. We are seeing the same here in slow motion with the Marxist BLM and defund the police movements (Although they are coming in on the tail end of 50 years of  equal protection under the law.), It doesn't matter what you give them. Marxists will always run it into the ground. Always.

The President and managing director of Hasbro is a spineless worm who will kneel to the mob.

Make no mistake, this is BIG news and it is being watched by everyone. Especially the ones that are currently pretending that it doesn't exist.

And when Mr. Johnson is officially fired and blacklisted, WOTC will be empowered to turn up the woke dial on D&D just that much more.

Form the Wokeoso point of view most everything is going their  way right now in society. They are feeling their oats and are going to start to make a big push on things in the near future.

Things will get worse before they get better.

How many of the people involved are trained educators or psychologists?  Do they really have enough knowledge to make a game that can be used to 'brainwash' an infant or juvenile?  Or are they just trying to highjack a hobby?  It has been said a million times, nothing can replace solid parenting.  Personally, I doubt they will have much success now that their agenda has been exposed.  I think RPG's are set to be played by a very small number of people again and that may not be a bad trend at all.  After the purge, the numbers will quietly grow again.

I'm glad I stopped buying WotC products years ago.  The OSR is better in every way.

I stopped in 2014, after buying (and giving away) the three base books of D&D 5E. Over the years I filled some gaps in my 3/3.5E collection but that was it.

My current "collecting mania" is limited to CoC 7E - which is pushing out some wonderful books (the two-volumes Malleus Monstrorum is amazing) and the games by Free League Publishing (Alien, Coriolis and Tales from the Loop). For D&D I already have 3.5E and my players are happy with that. Full stop.

Sadly, some parents still "delegate" their duties to games, videogames and television (or the equivalent, like YT).

Anyway, my earliest memory about "race" is when I was 9 years old, and our teacher used "Roots" (the original TV miniseries) to talk about slavery and racism. All of us kids rooted (no pun intended) for the slaves. We also used the Italian word for "nigger" ("negro") to describe their race.

I still remember the day when our teacher told us to start using "nero" ("black") instead of "negro", because the latter was an offensive term. We were puzzled and curious (how could simply dropping a letter make a difference?) and our teacher stalled because she didn't knew either (or she was unable to explain the concept in simple terms: I guess that she read some article on the matter and decided to teach us a new word). We kids shrugged, adopted "nero" and moved on.

Anyway, we were white kids in elementary school and we spontaneously supported the oppressed: amazing, uhu?

So glad this forum exists, at the least, to provide a differing viewpoint on the pushed narrative.

One would think Rpg.net and Enworld would be all over this, except it does not follow those sites narrative on anything and everything. Otherwise the other forums silence is neither surprising or coincidental.

After looking at the link the other so called more progressive forums are silent imo because the whistleblower is not a white person. So by their own rules if they say anything negative they would be racist and needing to check their privilege lol.

The way they get around that is to say that the person has "Internalized X". Racism or misogyny or whatever.

It won't be long before this guy gets called an Uncle Tom. Seen it happen to all the black people who don't follow the woke agenda.
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.

Yes, if you are a minoritie or disabled who disagree with the cult then you are un-minoritied or un-disabled as they make some made up psycobabble about internallizing oppression or being a "offense supporter" or god knows what the hell fake terms they invent for the occasion.

It's the Fight Club Cult. They *believe* in CRT. Why talk about it when they know fully well to talk about it, jeopardizes the the indoctrination effect.

The real question is for the NPC normies that blindly consume - or those slavishly consuming Hasbro products (you know, like D&D/Magic etc.): How much are you willing to sacrifice your consumer choices over this practice? Clearly it doesn't seem to impact Nike or Apple based on their horrid practices (which is much more egregious than Hasbro in this case). So I expect those on the margins to continue rationalizing this away.
