When did you first start to notice the SJW takeover of the hobby?

Narrator: They didn't go away when they were ignored.

Once video games became increasingly obnoxious (not just social justice, but also microtransactions and loot boxes), I started looking to traditional media for entertainment ithat was more permanent. Wasn't long after that Marvel NOW happened, then Disney buying Star Wars, movies deleting red headed characters (I'm red headed, as are my kids), etc. Miniature games were largely apolitical for a while. After BLM and Games Workshop telling their fans to go away, I came to RPGs - only to discover that they may be the most fucked bunch of them all.

Basically, since GamerGate, it has been moving from one hobby to another, just in time to see it collapse. It was like an apocalypse tour, with RPGs being post apocalypse (though I've found some amazing older stuff). Now, it appears I'm continuing my apocalypse tour with democracy and free speech. Have to admit, watching these fall stings.

I saw it in RPGs before Gamergate, but holy smokes how GG exposed how corrupt journalism had become. Not only games journalism mind you, as the mainstream media immediately threw themselves onto the same wagon. It was as if everyone was just parroting the same braindead “harassment campaign to drive out women” story.

I totally recommend picking up a copy of Tucker Carlson’s book. One of the best $15 bucks I ever spent. So much garbage is exposed it’s not even funny.

Hey! If you wanna have a good laugh check out this shit post they made about me at r/rpg, it’s hilarious. The SJWs still trying to cancel me.

Was censored for saying, “don’t argue with a fool, because you don’t know who’s watching.” I guess that sent the mod team into a complete meltdown. This is hilariously uncalled for. I haven’t even baited the trolls yet. That was plan b!
