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.

Not a takeover, just a loud and obnoxious bunch. Luckily you can spot then from a mile away, easier to ignore. Stop supporting and acknowledging them, eventually they’ll go away.

You really are a special kind of dim, aren't you? That's exactly how the vocal SJWs were able to hijack the hobby, because morons like you thought if you just put your fingers in your ears and ignored them, they'd lose interest. Instead you surrendered the public sphere to them and gave them control without any resistance. Well done!

Lol! Nah, it’s because you shouldn’t argue with a fool, because you don’t know who’s watching. They’re clearly very mentally ill. They’re self destructive, I feel great pity for them.


I'm afraid he's right about the ignoring part. SJWs may have short attention spans but the elites controlling them most certainly do not. I've seen for myself for a half-century that "ignoring them" never works. Look where we are today. Look what happened to the "Dragonlance" authors when they DID give in to the demands- they were effectively cancelled anyway.
I'm 55. My profile won't record this. It's only right younger members know how old I am.

SJWs where ignored when you should have paid attention and where given attention when they should have been ignored.
That has been the key to their success. Knowing when to do which is the key to their defeat.

The average SJWs are tormented people desperately craving some sort of attention, be it good or bad. Ignoring is always the best option. It makes them feel like they don’t exist, nothing worst for a attention sicking troll begging for 5 minutes of attention.

FelixGamingX1, trust me when I tell you that does not work. Again, look around you. Look at what happened to "Star Wars," "Dr. Who," Wizards of the Coast, Marvel, DC, the list goes on. Look around at society.

Being canceled is a state of mind. The second the trolls hear knights & legends, they start begging for attention and engage in shitposting, etc. Perhaps “being cancelled” was the best thing that happened to me. I certainly capitalized on the publicity. End of the day, only you can cancel you. If these authors allowed themselves to be cancelled it’s because they bowed to these weirdos. I simply spread the word, hey they trying to cancel me. Everyone knows, nothing new. Business as usual.

'Being canceled is a state of mind'.

...Cool. Is it a state of mind when you lose work, or get summarily kicked off a payment processor?

I call those people the 'Pawn' SJWs. Because they are up and front and visible and make you think thats all the movement is. There are plenty of SJWs (Kingsif you may) that keep their mouth shut until they are in HR (or are teachers or are in some other position of power) and then quietly and firmly proceed to impliment their agenda.

People tend to notice the pawns and ignore the Kings when you must do the exact opposite. Kings are cowardly and hate being called out. Pawns revel in it.

That’s a good point. But loosely thrown around is difficult to comprehend. Unless there’s a full story with full facts, impossible to agree or disagree with it.

Well yes, that’s absolutely true. The master puppeteer was always harder to identify.

He won’t get kicked out. If he does, I’ll pull all my products from there myself.

Their not even puppetmasters (The SJW movement is not really centralized), they just understand how to lie and keep their mouth shut.

To quote Chernobyl:

Charkov: Why worry about something that isn't going to happen?
Legasov: "Why worry about something that isn't going to happen?" Oh, that's perfect. They should put that on our money.

Pretending 'oh it'll never happen' is kinda how we got here.

First inklings were in college dealing with the "gamers" on campus. More serious was around the mid 2000s as the tone on the sound off section of Palladium's boards turn.

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

Probably too damn late.
When I was on Facebook, I joined a bunch of D&D pages. The largest was run by raging SJWs (1 trans person, 1 pink-haired obese person who wrote a module or two for WotC, etc.)  One tactic they would use was every couple of weeks they would let a bait post sit for a few hours and get a lot of comments, then afterwards go through and ban every opposing viewpoint.  The fact that it was the largest page was a clue.
Then, Twitter, as the actual WotC staff would pander to every far-left nonsense that swung by.

Glad I am no longer on either platform.
