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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

As I have been saying for a long time: “Wokeness” is so often just an excuse to bully and belittle people:

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.

Fuck the SF Chorus.

Most of those "SF" queers are either NAMBLA rejects or wannabe trannies who do not have the balls to go all the way with transitioning (no pun intended)

Seriously though, fuck those guys for undoing decades of hard-fought work. Now the traditionalist redneck whores are going to have a field day with this little stunt.

On behalf of the GLB community, let me say that the San Francisco Gay Chorus can go fuck itself and we are NOT coming after your children. No matter how much both far-right puritan rednecks and far-left pedophiles wish it were the case.
Thank you for this awesome response.

This thread would seem to fit for this:
https://hotair.com/john-s-2/2021/10/11/ny-times-story-on-the-bad-art-friend-is-remarkable-n421650

The utter evil of taking someone else’s generosity and work, and turning it into an issue resisting a “white savior” and appropriation.

I usually view the current progressive emphasis on being Woke and CRT as a kind of secular totalitarian cult, but I wonder if for a significant percentage it’s just a super-convenient vector for narcissists to build themselves up while tearing others down. Somehow, I think a true believer in the Woke cult couldn’t be this damn evil.

I am generally positive in my interactions with people; HOWEVER Always remember that if you interact with a group of people, 3-4 % of them are likely to be on the sociopath/narcissistic spectrum, or possibly more.

This largely varies by several factors. If you were raised in a shitty background, and struggles with insecurity problems then you’d ultimately believe someone like me is a narcissist.

If you were brought up the right away, then what other people do or don’t do, wouldn’t affect you at all. The woke movement is basically full of people with insecurity problems being manipulated by a grand master.

Of course it affects you. If you work with a lot of people you could be accused of something and fired for instance. If you’re not aware of this potential issue, you could make the situation worse for yourself.

It's been a rough week for the race grifters.

Ibram X. Kendi managed to shred his own arguments about 'white privilege' when he posted a story about how white students were getting scholarships by lying about their color.

And someone pointed out 'if they're having to lie about their race to get a scholarship, are they really enjoying any privilege?'.

Whoops. Delete! Delete! LOL.

Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick talks about how the NFL draft is like a slave auction.

No really. This fro-headed overpaid moron went there. Who knew that racism involved offering you million dollar contracts if you could cut it in the combines?

As a Capitalist I have to admire their grifting skills.

Some Democrats finally starting to get it? Took long enough. Here’s James Carville:

"What went wrong is stupid wokeness. Don’t just look at Virginia and New Jersey. Look at Long Island, Buffalo, look at Minneapolis, even look at Seattle, Washington. I mean this ‘defund the police’ lunacy, this take Abraham Lincoln’s name off of schools, people see that. And it really has a suppressive effect on all across the country on Democrats. Some of these people need to go to a woke detox center or something," Carville said.

He’s not wrong, but I doubt he will have any impact on the Woke now driving the Democrats. Even if his point of view gains any kind of traction that’ll merely accelerate his cancellation by the Woke.

He's actually been bringing this up since Trump's election.

Maybe not too surprising since he has a conservative wife. That way, he can’t be too far into the bubble.
