Pink SFFer defends a rabbit-pelleting

This should be amusing, although you may wish to avert your eyes if you are of tender sensibilities. McCreepy attempts to take on John C. Wright over the desirability of SJW propaganda in children's cartoons:
The delusionality is strong with this one. Watch as he attempts to speak for an entire audience, many of whom were screaming with happiness at the Korra/Asami revelation.

Go watch this video of fan reactions. Look at the joy on those people’s faces.

These are some of the people he’s trying to speak for. Do they look like people whose way of life, whose values and religion and virtues, are so incredibly fragile that they can be hurt so badly by a several-second clip of two women holding hands, or the idea of two women falling in love?

Mister Wright, you do not speak for the audience of this show. You speak for yourself, and perhaps for a small group of intolerant bigots who can’t accept the slightest acknowledgement or recognition of relationships you personally disapprove of, for whatever twisted reason.
I always enjoy the way the more incompetent rabbits go right to DISQUALIFY without any pretense of a justification. Mr. Wright is more than capable of addressing McCreepy, so I see no need to go into any detail except to note that a) SJWs always lie and b) they always attempt to avoid dealing with the actual topic at hand. Would you stake your life on those most of those "fan reactions" coming from genuine fans of the show? I surely wouldn't.

McCreepy is ignoring the obvious point that if the show's fans genuinely wanted to see animated lesbians, they wouldn't have been watching it on Nickelodeon, they would have ignored it in favor of Japanese anime and the writers wouldn't have had to spell everything out after the show ended. The problem is not that two women were holding hands, the problem is the SJW symbolism it represented; the symbolism is precisely why the rabbits were cheering it.

"Hurray, we managed to defecate on something again! We totally own it!"

McCreepy knows perfectly well what Wright is criticizing. He knows perfectly well that he would not have defended the symbolism as trivial if, instead of a several-second shout-out to sexual aberration, the two women had rolled back their sleeves to flash swastikas newly tattooed on their wrists, then thrown a Nazi salute to each other. Totally harmless. Look at the joy on the faces of the fans in Germany. What bigot could possibly oppose that?

The good news is that the strong reaction of the rabbits to Wright's criticism shows they understand the danger that our increasing rejection of their symbolic pelleting represents to them. They have to claim they have the numbers even when they quite obviously don't, they have to stop the criticism quickly, because the illusion of strength is all they have.

The open divide in science fiction between Pink SF and Blue SF is growing. This is but one of many, many incidents to come. Foxification is upon the genre... and we are the Fox.

And as for sexual retrofitting, I may have been one of the few who wasn't surprised by the announcement that Dumbledore was gay. Frankly, I thought the movie version of the character was more than a bit of a pedophile obsessed with Harry. Was there a sentence that came out of his mouth that didn't begin with "Harry...."?

I don't know whether it is better to have a symbolic burning of the books by Scalzi I own or to sell them to a second hand bookshop.

I lost interest after a while.

Anonymous Crude December 30, 2014 8:08 PM  

I see Scalzi is so delicate, so fragile, that criticisms of the sexual proclivities of fictional cartoon characters are enough to make him swing furiously, and ineptly.

Frankly, John speaks for a good number of fans from what I can tell. It was an obnoxious, shoehorned-in moment that the show suffered for, and even the creators made it pretty clear that this was far less about story than it was about kowtowing to a group of people who are so delicate about their sexuality that nothing less than universal or near-universal praise keeps them from suicidal depression.

Blogger Cataline Sergius December 30, 2014 8:43 PM  

Korra's unfortunate ending goes back to a topic that was recently discussed at Alphagame. Gamma writers, writing themselves into a corner.

Out of political submission the writers made the sequel avatar, a girl or grrrl if you prefer. Nick was going for teen based and girl friendly market. Thanks Miley! So naturally they wanted a lot of angst and romance.

Angst was no problem. A teenage girl who has to save the world is going to be plenty angsty.

But romance was a serious problem for Korra because she is the most powerful being in her world.

Cute boy: Gee Korra, I sure am not threatened by the fact that, I am not remotely stronger than you in any conceivable way, even though I am an Alpha in every other aspect of my life.

Korra: (*grins*)


No matter what they tried, the writers knew it wasn't working. They had blundered on to the Wonder Woman issue. No man is going to be take her in his arms and posses her completely. It just isn't possible.

Xena had the same problem and they went with the same solution.

Wonder Woman has the same problem, I anticipate the same solution. (Though at the moment she is apparently seeing Superman so she might be in luck. For values of luck, see, Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex).

Sadly no such luck for Korra. No man was worthy, so they settle for a girl.

Blogger automatthew December 30, 2014 8:49 PM  

And if we're going to talk about who ends up with whom in the Avatar world, the first series was at least as retarded. If the showrunners had followed the obvious signs in their own story:

* Zuko ditches that bitter bitch Mai for Katara. Fire and Water
* Aang is heartbroken, but then he's a preteen boy. By the time his balls drop, Toph will have filled out her clothing. Air and Earth
* Sokka gets Suki, Tai-Lee, and probably the teacher from the haiku battle as well. That's Earth and Fire. He'll still be tomcatting around when Aang and Toph have a teenager daughter. Boom, Air.

Cataline Sergius - They had blundered on to the Wonder Woman issue... No man was worthy, so they settle for a girl.

That's part of it. I think the deeper part is the creators' evident discomfort with competent male characters that aren't villains. By the final season, which relegated Tenzin and Mako to the background and featured a female villain, there were no prominent male characters that weren't mugging goofballs. For Korra or Asami, both idealized females, to be paired with one of them would have been almost as nonsensical as Korrasami.

There it is in a nutshell. If same-sex attraction really were "natural behavior" then what's the utility of springing it at the last moment of a TV series aimed primarily toward younger viewers in order to garner a reaction...?

Correct me if I'm mistaken but isn't the whole point of writing sci-fi stories to create something based on the fantastic, rather than to inject PC into everything? Why would demographics, sexual identity and such matter in a fantasy context?

It's extremely important for people to realize that the SJWs are not mainstream. They are not the majority regardless of the efficiency with which they've propagated the illusion that people who disagree with their worldview are a minority of fringe nutcases. It's simply not true.

They are a pitifully small outspoken percentage that have been allowed to become disproportionately dangerous to the future of our civilization, because we thought they were mostly harmless. It's becoming more and more apparent that they are not harmless, but incredibly self centered and destructive to society.

For Korra or Asami, both idealized females, to be paired with one of them would have been almost as nonsensical as Korrasami.

To be fair, pretty much all male characters in the show were unworthy of Korra. Mako certainly wasn't, he was the Steve Trevor of the relationship. Bolin would've come close if they let him have a backbone (the guy got verbally smacked around by pretty much everyone, including his own brother, and the show always placed the blame on him). General Iroh II could've been, with more screen-time, and not being played for being the most incompetent general in history. Asami had the same problem. Apparently very beautiful, smart girl, and super-martial-artist.

This problem was already partially there in the original show, but sky-rocketed in this one.

To go further, it is right to be upset and angry over evil. Recall how Jesus was both a firebrand and also full of mercy. The fact that you are so easily provoked is, I would say, just proof how sensitive you are towards evil.

Well, Malcolm, the problem is that I offend people like you by shooting off my mouth, and him, and the duty I signed up for when I joined the Church was to love. Mr Hine's mother would not get irate with him over a difference of opinion: she'd just suck it up like a man, because she loved him. Likewise with his father. Likewise again with his Father in Heaven, whose love I am supposed to represent, follow, and impersonate.

I really wonder at people who think of religion as wish fulfillment. If MY wishes were fulfilled, the gods I would worship would be a combination of Norse and Muslim, so that I could go berserk, die in battle killing my enemies, and then, instead of a drunken Viking party in Valhalla, I would go to the paradise of the Mohammedans, and get 72 virgins, all dressed like catwoman.

Instead of a religion of wrath and lust, like I prefer, reality shows me a religion of Love is the correct and logical one.

I do not know how to deal with this faith. I feel like a guy messing around with an atomic bomb. This love stuff is dangerous, and may explode, or mutate me.

I fear Jesus, and I care nothing who knows. He will be my judge at the end of time, and he will make no errors in judgment. I have to be more careful. I have to be more Christian.

And yet, I do not regret answering Mr Hines, because he is a coward and a bully, but I have to do such things in the right spirit.

SJWs love to revel in the idea of never growing up. They cling to cartoons and video games, hoping to retain the simple joys they had as children (re: innocence). But they want to skew these childlike loves with their adult perversions, and push it off onto real children. Not only does it steal actual children's innocence, it destroys that joy they were searching for. They applaud their victory, but it's never enough. It doesn't feel like it used to and it never will.

I do not know how to deal with this faith. I feel like a guy messing around with an atomic bomb. This love stuff is dangerous, and may explode, or mutate me.

It reminds me of what Lewis said in "A Grief Observed", one of the most profound meditations on love I've ever read:

“Talk to me about the truth of religion and I'll listen gladly. Talk to me about the duty of religion and I'll listen submissively. But don't come talking to me about the consolations of religion or I shall suspect that you don't understand.”

When atheists claim that Christians only believe in an afterlife because it is "comforting" the correct response is to laugh gently and try to educate.

To hate the self-annihilator is to love him.

I wrote a three paragraph response to Mr Hines, but now feel greasy and queasy for having done so. It occurs to me that one of the successful defense mechanisms of these skunks is the unwillingness of clean minded men to expose themselves to stench.

How in the world do I learn to love and forgive my foes, when I am so bitter and so easily provoked? I have increased my years in purgatory by this night's work.


Unfortunately I think it's a natural reaction for good men to feel dirty and guilty when confronting their foes. I know there have been many times when I stood up for my principles and yet felt like I should have handled things differently. But maybe that's how evil works, by making us question our morals and forcing us into silence and submission. I can only say if you felt like you spoke from the heart, then you did no wrong even if you questioned yourself afterwards.

re: gay dumbledore.

I for one didn't hate the harry potter books. The trick is to completely ignore all the extra crap the author adds/changes/"improves" after the fact. If you didn't put it in the book, too damn bad, what's done is done.

I just wish someone would have told George Lucas this before he desecrated the original trilogy. Over. And over. Sometimes you just gotta move on.

I did not realize that one spent time in purgatory for purging Lucifer from the hearts of men, but if you must spend some extra time there, I hope you are blessed to work out your penance with Solomon Kane:

“For man's only weapon is courage that flinches not from the gates of Hell itself, and against such not even the legions of Hell can stand.”

“Over the souls of men spread the condor wings of colossal monsters and all manner of evil things prey upon the heart and soul and body of Man. Yet it may be in some far day the shadows shall fade and the Prince of Darkness be chained forever in his hell. And till then mankind can but stand up stoutly to the monsters in his own heart and without, and with the aid of God he may yet triumph.”

I could - however - see you earning yourself a few moments there for committing the sin of applying the honorific of "Mister" to the rapemonger Hines.

The best takedown of McCreepy is the one where a LGBT advocate tells McCreepy to check his privilege:

This kind of privileged tone is exactly what gets me so insanely infuriated about the fringe portions of the internet. That being said this is not exactly the type of reply Id expect. Can I ask you Hines, whether you really are afraid of these pricks (Yes I’m using that word )? “he would have needed time to swoon over the horrific perversion of two women holding hands. Not to mention having to counsel his poor, traumatized children”: is this a joke? We’re talking about a landmark for the LGBT community, the beginning of the end for children oppressively programmed into a homo-normative mindset from birth. From someone like you Id expect more appreciation for human rights than a sarcastic criticism/copout.

I don't think McCreepy realizes yet that his friends at the LGBT Alliance are allied...against him.

His response is shock and confusion. What a dolt.

"Go watch this video of fan reactions. Look at the joy on those people’s faces."

His point being? I'm fairly certain if you gathered enough pedos together and showed them films full of child porn they'd have joy on their faces too.

And mostly for the same reason, they are both cheering on perversion that is slowly rotting away any morality left in the world. Showing kids/teens that it's "cool" for two girls to hook up is sickening.

"the beginning of the end for children oppressively programmed into a homo-normative mindset from birth.

I think he/she/it meant hetero-normative, but whatever. You have to laugh at people who so determinedly fail to acknowledge that the drive to reproduce was pre-programmed a very long time ago, long before any of us were born.

And if you're of that other ilk, who defer to (neo)darwinist ideas, then it was even longer ago, which still doesn't help this hapless fool.

Reality keeps slapping them in the face, and they wander around dazed and confused, unable to understand what just happened ...

Given that the first series stars a male protagonist who's only a young boy but is still capable of eventually saving the world, while the second series stars a female protagonist who's an older teenage girl with boobs, it's surprising Hines is defending LoK, rather than protesting it's clear "objectification of women" by doffing a sleeveless kimono with two cantaloupes underneath while holding a hairdryer, lighter, shovel, and watering can. Or anything else creepy and self-righteous like that.

There's a typo in the preceding sentence; "many" should instead be "several". We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

McCreepy knows perfectly well what Wright is criticizing. He knows perfectly well that he would not have defended the symbolism as trivial if, instead of a several-second shout-out to sexual aberration, the two women had rolled back their sleeves to flash swastikas newly tattooed on their wrists, then thrown a Nazi salute to each other. Totally harmless. Look at the joy on the faces of the fans in Germany. What bigot could possibly oppose that?

That would have been vastly amusing actually, a real example of the "transgressiveness" the propagandists go on about. Replace it with the regalia of Imperial Japan and a last scene with the two praying at the Yasukuni Shrine for some extra cultural sensitivity. Then possibly a scene of the two flying a sportsplane over Pearl Harbor and laughing together. The End.

And as for sexual retrofitting, I may have been one of the few who wasn't surprised by the announcement that Dumbledore was gay. Frankly, I thought the movie version of the character was more than a bit of a pedophile obsessed with Harry. Was there a sentence that came out of his mouth that didn't begin with "Harry...."?

As the book puts it, "So, Harry, you have been wondering, I am sure, what I have planned for you during these — for want of a better word — lessons." Whereafter Dumbledore and Harry spend many a private night teasing a silver-white substance from the young man's body. The object used to do this is a "pensieve", which nearly looks like an anagram. Seems all too clear in retrospect, doesn't it?

A rating system for Political Correctness on the SJW art could be started, they would howl, but it would expose them for what they are the useful idiots of a deranged elite, and not some populist uprising.

They would howl but if asked how they deviate from Political Correctness they would not answer but instead attempt to disqualify the concept that we could rate them.

This is a profound theological question which interests me deeply. My current position is that Jesus told Pontious Pilate that if his Kingdom was of this world then his servants would fight. He also whipped the merchants out of the temple and seems to have stopped his apostles from killing the Romans when they came to arrest him only because he had a mission to accomplish. So...my view is, be led by your conscience. Be sure it IS your conscience first, but when sure, if battle is to be given, then give it, and give it full. And in this context, mercy too is not as it seems. Better to leave the enemy obviously chastised, limited and living, as an example to others of his warren/hole in the ground, than to exterminate him and thus fall unwittingly into the sin of pride.

Very well said. It never seems to be easy to deal with matters of conscience. But maybe that's the point.

No, not really, since what they are doing is looking into the memories of somebody else entirely and have no physical contact besides Dumbledore touching Harry's arm.

Sometimes grandparents watch cartoons so they can have something to talk to their grandchildren about. But those that obsess are people who want to deny they can grow old, & Pedos. After all grown ups have responsibilities, and the left doesn't believe in responsibilities. I should point out that lesbians like younger girls when they can get them.

"Would you stake your life on those most of those "fan reactions" coming from genuine fans of the show? I surely wouldn't."

This was Wright's point. The so-called "fans" who were delighted by this retconning were not really fans of the show, they were first and foremost SJW's loyal to PC orthodoxy. The happy reactions had nothing to do with the show being well or poorly made, and everything to do with the showrunners openly bending the knee to Cultural Marxism. As Wright points out, when you see everything through a distorting ideological filter it becomes impossible to love anything for its own virtues, only for its ability to conform to your prejudicies.

Anonymous JJ December 31, 2014 2:41 PM  

On further consideration, it really jumps out at me just how cowardly and cheap it was to slip this BS in at the very tail end of the show (some will say "yeah, but there were hints it was coming!", for example Korra was good friends with Asami so therefore clearly they're potential lovers. Nevermind that she was in a heterosexual relationship for the first 2 seasons). The creators knew full well that if they'd tried this stunt earlier in the show's run they would have lost viewers even faster than they did, so they slipped it in at literally the last possible moment. Of course, they'd already lost a ton of viewers anyway after the 1st season (the show really nosedived quickly after that, mostly because it didn't have enough prominent male characters to appeal to boys, and not enough romantic drama to appeal to girls), so probably they also wanted to go out with a big splash just to remind people that the show even still existed, and did it in the tritest way possible.

That's the truth of it. Making a hard left statement on some social issue is a safe way to get attention in the mainstream entertainment industry.

Not to mention (unintentionally ironic) praise for "bravery". As fictional Presidential candidate Jack Johnson once said "It's time someone had the courage to stand up and say 'I'm against those things that everybody hates!'"

As Mr. Wright said, the celebration of that scene and scenario is simply a celebration of a triviality. It served no purpose to the story, and did not make up for the fact that the entirety of Season 4 of Korra was poorly written and poorly paced. Celebrating an otherwise dull clunker of a finale merely because someone portrayed homosexuality on a children's show is hypocritical.

The animation looked great, but if you want to write about lesbians, tell an interesting, realistic lesbian story: 6 months later, Asami is domestically abusing Korra on a regular basis, and Korra eventually commits suicide after she discovers Asami has been sending love letters to Kuvira in prison all along.

That would be a heck of a stretch; you can make pretty much anything sound sexual if you word it the right way.

There ARE some very subtle hints in book 7 that Rita Skeeter implied in her autobiography that Dumbledore was sexually abusing Harry, though for obvious reasons she never comes close to following through on it (and good for her on that one).

@ Tar Heel

I wish Mr Hines, a stranger but a fellow professional in the field, a man whom I am by my character predisposed to admire and respect, had not ambushed me out of the blue, with no defiance offered, no declaration of war, and no response once I proffered a rebuttal.

Conservatives think you owe a certain amount of respect and mutual aid to fellow members of any profession you happen to be in, out of a sense of mutual preservation, if nothing else, and to prevent the humiliation of the group before the eyes of a disgusted world.

The Leftists do not feel this way. They hate everyone who is not a Leftist, and many who are. They have loyalty to nothing and no one save only their few tarnished and revolting idols, sexual perversion, totalitarianism, economic ignorance, envy, bitterness, and hate.

So, no, he might owe me an apology for tempting me to ire, but not you.
