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 have been reading a thread over at RPG.Net where people were posting their thoughts about the new Masters of the Universe Revelation on Netflix Kevin Smith series and of course, the SJW shills over there were creaming themselves to heap accolades upon it.  Here is an example: https://ibb.co/X4D97Br

There were a few that did not like it and for that, they had to be punished.

This poor guy got a 1 day ban for truthfully complaining about how the show replaced the men with women and made men look incompetent compared to the women: https://ibb.co/B4CCfQs

Nevander received a warning from the Moderator NAZIs for being too negative in his dislike of this trash: https://ibb.co/dgMHtZh

The Mod NAZI literally said he was being too negative and that this was not the first thread where he had done that before.  I know Nevander and he has NEVER posted anywhere on RPG.Net in a negative fashion about disliking something the way he did in this thread and has had a spotless record at the forum up till now.  When he questioned the mod about this they then banned him till July 30th. because opinions that differ from the assclown mod NAZIs over there are a no-no and apparently it is a crime to ask why you are being punished for simply stating your dislike of something.  https://ibb.co/NyLrdWx

It is hilarious to me that this mod NAZI literally has the description of 'His Honorable Tyranny' in his use info: https://ibb.co/HgL2QhW

The honorable part is definitely not applicable to this scum bucket but the tyranny part certainly applies.

RPG.Net have this strange culture about some shows or movies being automatically good not for the writing, acting or production values but the message (i.e politics) it transmits. Every show or movie must have representation and diversity whether it makes sense or not and if it doesnt (because it wants to take place during a historical era where that kind of diversity didnt exist) it is criticized.

Mods, please feel free to delete this thread.  There probably isn't a lot of interest in what is going on over there in regard to this.  It will no longer allow me to do so.

This is nothing new. It is "female-centric" and "progressive". 95% on Rotten Tomatoes from the critics was a given. The 35% score from the audience is just a fluke caused by sparse toxic fans, I guess.

Here is an example: https://ibb.co/X4D97Br

Please, let Mark Hamill alone. He is one of the greatest voice-actors ever (he was even great in "The Last Jedi", where he played a part he strongly disagreed with). Also, given how dubbing is very often organised, it is quite possible that Hamill and others weren't aware of the direness of MOTU: they give you the context of the scene you are in and directions about how to perform. Seldom a voice-actor knows the plot of the show he is working for.

The problem with the new MOTU is that Kevin Smith flatly lied about it. I never watched the original, even if it was targeted on my age group (I always hated He-Man don't ask me why: I just do), and I only had a moderate curiosity about the new one. A few months ago some leaks revealed that He-Man (the character) would have been anything but and that the new show would have been strongly female-centric.

I have no problems with kick-ass female heroines. The problem is that Kevin Smith openly denied these rumors. He-Man was He-Man! - end of the story.

So, even people who were neutral about the matter felt lied to. Some even said "I do like Teela, just do a spin-off."

But, from what I read and saw, the truth of the matter is that the show is just bad: badly written with unsympathetic characters. And here we have the usual curse. No, not "Get woke, go broke" but "Get woke, produce trash, blame the toxic fans".

I could even watch it. In my line of work it is part of the job and one can learn a lot from a  failure.

Why are you discussing this on theRPGsite?

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.

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.

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).

Agreed, and I only watched the first two episodes. I'm not going to finish as it's not . . . entertaining. The things stupidwood decide are entertaining aren't. There's a reason why the all female Ghostbuster's movie sucked, there's a reason why the last three Star Wars movies sucked. But, oh well.

Discussion at rpg.net has for some years now been like being gay and having Sunday afternoon tea with your boyfriend's very conservative old grandmother who is very sensitive and doesn't know there is such a thing as homosexuality outside the condemnatory passages in the bible and some nasty French artists. You might hold the teacup wrong and incur her wrath and sneering disgust, and will never be invited around for macaroons again.

It's all rather depressing and nerve-wracking, the conversation is stilted and dull, and you are better off spending the afternoon having a picnic with wine and a vigorous shag with your boyfriend instead, and simply send the old biddie a Christmas card some time.

Yeah why the hell does anyone actually visit rpg.net when there are thousands of websites that all do the same thing but better. I've thought about creating dummy accounts on rpg.net just to troll the shit out of them because its funny but other than that....

Lots of Yootoob discussion from some of the bigger channels about it if anyone wants to delve further.  Like everything else these days  complaints about a property
getting a socio-political re-vamp, Woke, etc.

I never watched it when it was a thing, I was at that age where "cartoons are for kids".

Thundaar was probably the last cartoon series like that I watched, BITD.

What's really chapping people's asses about MOTU:R is how Kevin Smith fuckin' lied through his teeth about it. And not in the 'I'm trying to avoid spoiling shit' way, either.

And the fact that Teela comes off as an unlikable bitch who people would only follow out of morbid curiousity. And the unusually high body count (who is this cartoon made for, again?).

If it was rolled out as a spinoff, character-centric series (MOTU: Teela?), it wouldn't have hacked off so many people. But once again, if you fuckin' LIE about your media and the truth comes out, expect people to get kinda pissed.
