You better not dislike Kevin Smith's MotU Revelation at RPG.Net!

We normally discuss RPG.net fiascoes about pop culture here. Wokeism is not limited to RPGs, and what you can see and learn about Orwellian moderation on a different topic can be useful to understand the hows and whys of the next RPG failure.

Ghostmaker:
If you feel the need to dissect the latest idiocy at TBP, may I suggest taking it over to the new thread I started in RPGPundit's Forum (where all the political raging is going on)? It helps sidestep the issue of 'deviating from RPGs into pure social/political arguments'.

This is not political - except for references to the woke culture, which are endemic. Not looking at pop culture as an integrated environment through which movements like Wokeism express themselves would be a serious error. Be assured that in this MOTU fiasco you find the seeds that explain a RPG fiasco or will explain the next one. Not to mention how moderation over there follows the same ideology no matter what the nature of what is being moderated is.

Either pop culture and its content creators are under attack as a whole or they aren't. Let's not forget how during the "Satanic D&D panic", movies and comic books too were targeted by the same regressive forces - with hearings in the US Senate and other sad episodes. If one wants to push back, even in a specific field, it is important to b e aware of what is happening everywhere.

I guess that on TBP I would now be banned for a "Press Conference" post  ;D

   The funny thing to me is, people are upset Kevin Smith "lied" about what He-man was going to be on Netflix..the home of cuties and many other questionable products.  Anyone who thought netflix was going to allow the main focus of a show to be a massively muscled Blonde haired magical superhero is simply avoiding reality.

    That said, I was never a he-man fan as a kid, I watched it as almost all the kids I knew did, because it came on after school  and you had to get through it to get to the shows you preferred.  I knew the instant I heard Smith was making a "sequel" that there would be all sorts of current year bullshit crammed into it, but didn't care as I was not a fan.   Now, I might get hackles up for what ever Netflix does to Conan, but I cancelled Netflix over a year ago, so again, not a customer.  The old saying, once someone tells you who they really are, believe them, is very relevant here.  Stop giving scorpions a ride across the river IMO.

HappyDaze:
I didn't like Teela's voice at all. It didn't fit her heavily muscled look at all. Beyond that, she was so self-centered in some parts that I didn't really like her character much.

I also didn't see any good reason Adam became younger and way less built (from a well-muscled young adult to a wimpy adolescent).

They did give Duncan (Man-at-Arms) some positive attention...and they didn't even kill him off (unlike Orko).
