How to commit business suicide 101:* Have a SJW in your company publicly admit to maliciously inserting SJW inanity into your product to force down people's throats.
It's a good thing she put in /end, else I wouldn't have known when she was concluding.Top notch writing everyone!Honestly though this obsession with pop culture by SJWs is indicative how they themselves believe they are formed by pop culture. They treat games and videos and books as some sort of giant, epic brainwashing machine, doubtless from THE PATRIARCHY. That's why when they have the option to make some of their own they are more than happy to try and make the most propagandistic stuff they can, and even crow about it loudly.
Every sentence begins with "I".PA
You can't spell diversity without "I."Or "die" for that matter.Of course, although there is no "I" in "team," there is "meat," and beamdog has put itself smackdab on the menu.
How long before the #Gamergate boycott? I'm not a gamer so nothing I do would have any direct effect, but I'm sure going to watch to see what works.
She can write all the games she wants. Now that the agenda has been exposed, good luck selling any of them.
Heh, I like how she doesn't even include "male" in her laundry list of triggering demographic qualities. Either because it's so obvious as not to be worth mentioning, or because even a normal white woman won't do it for "diversity" anymore. Nope, has to be a mentally ill freak who cuts off his genitals and wears women's clothing or else it's too "boring".I hope this gelatinous blob is out of a job soon. It could stand to miss some meals, too.
Honey, you didn't write that. You subverted it. Good try.
SJWs should be destroyed.
Amazing, just amazing.The word "nitwit" comes with a picture of her as an example of the word's meaning.Are these people for real? I mean does she really believe her beloved "minorities" are under-represented in pop culture?I wonder, why are SWJ so obsessed with the sexual aspects of a character?Is this lady a deviant of some sort?I'm convinced more and more that all these people just like the smell of their own farts and confusing it with scent, so they are all farting thinking they are doing a nice thing, each fart more stinking than the last.Boycott! From now on I'm not buying any game ever with this type of shit, I will actively ask in forums from now on if any game/movie/book I have an interest in contains this shit.I do not care if it leads to do not having any games/movies to watch (books fortunately are not so much a problem)I have had enough of this shit.
This happens because teenage boys like lesbian sex, and thus games become all about tits.Anyway, the best way to do this is not buy SJW made games.
Is this lady a deviant of some sort?A rhetorical question, I guess.
I wonder, why are SWJ so obsessed with the sexual aspects of a character?Is this lady a deviant of some sort?Every SJW that I've ever known who pushes that line has also had some weird fetish or kink that they also talk about constantly. They also thought everybody else had some bizarre hang-up and were hiding it. Vox was dead-on when he said SJWs always project.
It seems that she does not fully appreciate just how well gamers follow instructions.Today: I'm going to write about Social Justice because I'm in charge. If you don't like it, you can leave.Tomorrow, after sales tank: You xophobic bigots! What did I ever do to you?!(OT: All comments get eaten when posting in Brave.)
The quality will continue to fall. - they are coasting on earlier successes. Depression quest will reach its goal.Similar to the economy. "You didn't build that" is becoming "I'm not building" like the mind strike in Atlas shrugged.
"I'm the writer and creator. I get to make decisions about who I write about and why."Ooooh, the irony."Everyone should get a chance to seem themselves reflected in pop culture."OK. let's stipulate that this true. That doesn't imply that they're going to like what they see. Pop culture isn't your personal, narcissistic pool.
Seriously though... is there a chemical or environmental explanation for SJW's?You'll have noticed how they all look the same. But it's not just the problem glasses / neon hair / septum piercings, they're also morphologically similar too.Males - lack muscle mass or definition. Feminine facial expressions. Watery eyes. Often doughy. (Textbook example: John Scalzi)Females: usually masculine-looking. Overweight. Pronounced jawlines. Often have high foreheads and asymmetrical faces.It's quite possible, perhaps likely, that there's a toxicological cause for SJW's. I'm guessing something to do with abnormal endocrinal development.
Normal is a mathematical expression. Never forget.Statistical freaks cannot own "normal". Walk on water, and I'll follow abnormality, maybe. Till then ......
First generation to not grow up around second-hand smoke, Steve. That batched turned.
I could see a SJW game being a success. "SJW Hunting," perhaps.
@SteveI've heard talk of high amounts of estrogen and low testosterone. That may contribute to what you're seeing. I doubt it's the entirety of it though.
"Everyone should get a chance to see themselves reflected in pop culture" Well, except for heterosexual white people. Unless it's a negative reflection. I wonder if she thinks differing kinds of people such as German nationalists, traditional Catholics, Donald Trump supporters, immigration restrictionists, or even plain old vanilla Republican party members deserve a fair reflection in pop culture. I'll put money on she does not.
@19 - could be function following form. Men with feminine characteristics, or females masculine/unattractive features (or psych issues that make them unattractive) might well be drawn to a philosophy that actively seeks to discount / destroy anything that supports classical roles. They know they can't get to the top of the heap in the current situation, even if they could be comfortable enough, but because Special Snowflakes were Born To RULE!!!1! then the status quo must (hey-hey, ho-ho) go!.....even if they don't realize that if it truly does get torn down, they are likely to lose far more than the current targets of their ire.
She's poorly paraphrasing Warhol.In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. She wasted hers on this.
If the women join the men on the hunt, is it any surprise if the wolves find the children?They were able to take our schools and do this to our children because we let them. We fucking let them.
Dumb F*** Hunter would be hilarious and popular in sports bars accross the country.
It's not all about you white men anymore.GET OVER IT.Other people now have a voice. What's wrong? Scared that without your unfair privileges that you won't be able to compete on a level playing field?I thought you guys were tough manly men and like challenges?
Please Lord, don't let this Howling Bitch Monkey anywhere near Master of Orion 2.
@24: "I wonder if she thinks differing kinds of people such as German nationalists, traditional Catholics, Donald Trump supporters, immigration restrictionists, or even plain old vanilla Republican party members deserve a fair reflection in pop culture. I'll put money on she does not."Oh, I'm sure she thinks they deserve a fair reflection. It's just that her opinion on what would be a "fair reflection" of them is very different from what those groups' opinions would be.
Cringe-worthy, putrid, and vile.And her writing's awful, too.OT: Did you VFM see they replaced the "scandalous" pose from Overwatch with... wait for it... an exact copy of a classic pinup pose?Blizzard may have just won me over.
@29 Josh WeisbergThis has nothing to do with white men. Yet, you're the one that brought them up. Get the fuck out of here, retard.

It's ironic (or maybe not) that that's caused by exposure to cats.
"Straight/white/cis characters are not reflective of the real world."What kind of microcosmic circlejerking cave do you have to live in not to notice that 96% of the world is straight?
@29 It's always been about us, and it always will be about us. There are no level playing fields, only the one we made because we built the world as it is.
Just remember though, we're all paranoid conspiracy theorists who think that the media is biased, awards are biased, etc."These aren't the droids you're looking for" seems to be Jedi-ese for "the train is fine".
A hint for anybody wanting to respond to the edgy edgelord up above:This individual often posts under different sock puppet names on this board, and always uses the term "you guys" every time. Do not respond to the inflammatory emotional attacks using logic, go straight to ridicule and/or rhetoric instead, it works more.
Intersting, "Everyone should get a chance to see themselves in pop culture." The fact that "other types of people" are being represented in pop culture isn't really the issue. I think the issue has to do with using stereo types of all types of people to form a narrative that pushes an agenda. All types of people are being misrepresented in these social justice media. The white Christian "cis"-male is being vilified at every turn, while "other types of people" are shown to be victim's of their oppression. You find this in all types of media, in movies today the bad guy is always a crazy white Christian who uses his religion to justidy violence against these "others" and the hero is always some SJW who is justified using violence against them because of how they've been misrepresented, and the SJW usually beats up four or five of these evil Christians with one hand tied behind his back. And of course these others are represented as altruistic people who just want to live and peace if it wasn't for those darn Christians always attacking them. Thus is nothing more than propaganda.The other issue is one of accomodation. Where you have stories being changed because they aren't diverse enough, by diveres of course they mean that the good guys are too white. Idris Elba comes to mind and I want to say that I think he is a great actor, however a few months ago they started talking about him being the new bond. And to tell you the truth I was not opposed to the idea, however, would the same attitude be reciprocated if there were talks of making a new Shafter movie staring Ben Afleck as John Shaft? I don't think so. Of course people will argue that it's about proportion and everything needs to be equal. But as far as Idris Elba is concerned there was something about a future project of his that I did take issue with. It was him being cast as the gunslinger in Steven King's Dark Tower series. This to me was a decision by King to give a large majority of his fan base the middle finger. Having Idris Elba play that role changes so much to the story and especially between certain relationships between the characters. This is in the ne of equality, I'm not buying it, and as for the movie when it comes out, I won't watch it, and I predict it will flop. Kin probably knows this, but sticking it to a certain demographic of his fan base seems more important than the financial success of this project, but them again he's not hurting for cash anyway.
Eric, depends on the culture. Cultures that don't encourage the sexual abuse of children have levels of homosexuality as low as 1%. It can rise as high as 40-50% in cultures where buggering little boys is seen as a-ok.
Eric Guillaume Dilasser-McDowell wrote:What kind of microcosmic circlejerking cave do you have to live in not to notice that 96% of the world is straight?The latest CDC data I saw suggested an upper limit of 2-3% of the populace as gay. And additional studies suggested that up to two thirds of those who identified as gay "recidivated" into heterosexual norms after a few years. No doubt after discovering that all of the hype about how cool being gay was didn't actually pan out.That suggests that the ratio of gay to straight people is comfortably below a single percentage point gay.
It's a good thing she put in /end, else I wouldn't have known when she was concluding.HA. My Greade 8 teacher used to say if you have to write "The End" then you haven't done a very good job.That was when he wasn't having a liquid lunch to get through the day or throwing chalk at the girls who decided they would interrupt class by talking, loudly. I remember that fondly. The look of indignation from the usual suspect as the chalk smashed off the wall just above her head... priceless.
VFM #6306 - when I was a boy, you could get the equivalent of 40 cigarettes for free, just by going to the cinema.Student in Blue - seems like it's hormonal, because that would explain developmental abnormalities such as manjaw in women, or Jim C Hines in males.Rolf - self-selection and the subculture echo chamber effect created by the internet is probably part of the answer.Gaiseric - Let's not go blaming cats for this.
Was reading earlier about LBGTXQZZZ outrage over the death of some lezzo in a TV series I've never heard of. The idea proposed was that the death of a TV character is some kind of cultural assault on lezzos. There's some fantasy/reality confusion here. Maybe it's a logical corollary to sexual confusion, which is another deliberate choice to pretend you're not what you are, i.e. reality is something other than what it is.
people people... we should be encouraging them to speak out like this. That we know to fire and who to never hire in the first place.
Never played Baldur's Gate and now I never will.
Can somebody mod GTA or one of the military games so that all the killable targets are rainbow haired doughy trolls?Ilk should be up to that ...

This just in: DC's Justice League will from this point on be known as The Social Justice League.
It was him being cast as the gunslinger in Steven King's Dark Tower series. This to me was a decision by King to give a large majority of his fan base the middle finger. Having Idris Elba play that role changes so much to the story and especially between certain relationships between the charactersYes.I had low hopes for THE DARK TOWER, but now I'm definitely not going to see it.And it's not because Elba's in it. It's because he's miscast in it for what seems like obviously SJW reasons. He's a good actor and a convincing tough guy. I'd be happy to pay money to see him in a film that's not a big FU to its fans.I thought Chitwhatshusname Ejiofor was really good in SERENITY, for example. And I liked Will Smith in I AM LEGEND. He was let down by the script and effects, but his acting was top notch.However, Roland is a beloved character whose physical appearance was well established in the books, and Elba just isn't Roland. It's like if they cast Jennifer Lawrence to play Gandalf.
"The idea proposed was that the death of a TV character is some kind of cultural assault on lezzos. There's some fantasy/reality confusion here."Not confusion, projection. SJW's always project, remember? They see such things as attacks on them because when they do these things they believe that they are "attacking" us, much like the "creative writer" from the OP above most assuredly does.
@29 Josh Weisberg"Scared that without your unfair privileges that you won't be able to compete on a level playing field?"SJWs always project. Deep down Josh and regressives like him know that they are useless parasites - only subsisting on ressources gained through unfair means. Thus they are deathly afraid of a true meritocratic playing field where their uselessness will be clear for all to see.
I wrestle with how this fits together with the technological progress we are still seeing. I was watching the Microsoft Build keynote and it had many interesting things.https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2016/KEY01Sure, a lot is their hype, but things like Hololens will impact society in huge ways. How can we keep making progress if so many give into all this inanity?
Every sentence begins with "I".Consider the following...
straight/cis - "not reflective of the real world"cisgender: your sexual identity matches your gender96%+ matches real world but acknowledging that is "forced", "fake", "artificial"These people are insane.

I don't think I can Hitler any games to-day because I am sobbing so hard.
Mads Mikkelsen would have been my pick for Roland.
Steve, there is a cure for the male SJWs appearance and mindset. Have them work on a farm, preferably with livestock. The hard work would make them lose weight and put on muscle mass, and its impossible to believe in dozens of genders once you've taken care of animals and witnessed mating and giving birth. That lefty nonsense just can't be taken seriously anymore. Sadly I know of no cure for the female SJWs.
Not reflective of the real world? Does this mean there will be less Black Professor Doctor Rocket Surgeons and more Blacks beating hoes with diamond studded gold plated stripper poles in her games?Seriously though... is there a chemical or environmental explanation for SJW's?Most municipal water supplies/sewage treatment plants cant filter out the estrogen from upstream cities that come from birth control pills. Women pee out a good portion of each birth control pill.This has nothing to do with white men. Yet, you're the one that brought them up. Get the fuck out of here, retard.Of course we know Asian men contribute also, but leftists don't consider Asians to be a minority because like Cubans they are successful.The toxoplasma gondi explanation may yield some fruit as well.

"My stories are reflective of the realities of the modern world," she said of her tales about wizards and elves.
BGKB:The ratio of tops to bottoms, makes hitting 30yo bad for bottoms.I've heard about that. Funny how even some gays have their own "wall", isn't it? Just like women, which is probably a big reason you will never learn about that through the mainstream media. Hits way too close to the Feminine Imperative for their comfort.But back to SJWs. May they continue to self-dox themselves. And remember to archive, folks, so they can't delete it and send it down the memory hole.
It's quite possible, perhaps likely, that there's a toxicological cause for SJW's. I'm guessing something to do with abnormal endocrinal development.Too much estrogen. Possibly birth control pills as BGS said, but also too much soy (i.e. plant estrogen) in the diet. It literally emasculates the men, and makes women crazy by screwing up their cycles.
It's not all about you white men anymore.Of course it is. We built the world and we've been letting you types live in it. But you're wearing out your welcome really fast.
Consciously writing diversity for diversity's sake isn't good story telling nor is it good art. What a disaster. I guess I know what to avoid in the future. Thanks for pointing this out Vox.
@60 "work a farm" - ha, nice one! "A dose of reality."SJW cry for "balance" always makes me think they want more Europeans and Asians on the African continent, and more straight people in San Francisco, right?And finally: for a group so worried about "oppression by Europeans", they seem to embrace and invite Marx into their heads and beds, even though his ideas and acolytes number among the worst oppressor of people in history. How foolish.
"I wonder, why are SWJ so obsessed with the sexual aspects of a character?"No doubt this will sound like the ravings of a lunatic, but so be it.I know the answer to your question.Mankind is in the no-man's land of a war between two opposing powers that can neither been seen nor hear, except in the quietest parts of the praying heart, or the dreams of visionaries.To one side is heaven, who wishes to shower upon us infinite joy and endless life, but will not stir a feather to aid those too proud to ask for aid: love cannot compel or be compelled. To the other side is darkest hell, a black cloud filled with clamor, uproar, wailing, screaming, shrieking, and the sounds of all torment and terror and woe. They want to hear you scream. The sole weapon of Hell is a simple and horrible thing that makes evil look good and good look evil. Due to sin, the glory of the naked body, for example, is a matter for shame. The wonder and ecstasy of romantic love is a matter for neurosis, betrayal, selfishness, pornography, degradation, perversion.Hell hates children because they are innocent and hates sex because it produces children. Hell likes sex when and only when it is done illegally, unhappily, selfishly, lovelessly. Because sex is the most potent drive in the human soul and the greatest wonder and gift of heaven to man, it has been the focus of hellish perversion since Eden. Everything which could be done to disrupt, ruin, corrupt, and mar this most glorious source of happiness has been done, from the time when Lamech took more than one wife through the heresy called Puritanism to the absurdity called the Sexual Revolution, to the ghastly horror of Feminists believing that loving and serving a man is oppression. So the weapon of hell has been sharpened and refined to be precisely what will do the most damage to the souls of all concerned according to the psychology of all involved: the Social Justice Warrior is drunk on self-righteousness, and celebrates unspeakable perversions one cannot even discuss in front of children, and meanwhile the same social justice warrior is flung in our faces like poop flung by a monkey, to drive contempt and hatred into our hearts, so that we no longer see the damned Morlock as human, as a child of God and beloved of Him. Our cries of outrage make the social justice warrior feel special, hardening his heart; but if we say nothing our already corrupt and vile society slips one more notch down the wide and easy path into the burning sewer of hell. For Uncle Screwtape, it is a win-win.

"Other people now have a voice."No they don't, you liar. The only ones who have a "voice" are those who sing the song of our enlightened overlords.
Spot on. Again.
She may be the writer, but damned if she's the creator. Baldur's Gate and Forgotten Realms were created by talented (and probably mentally sound) developers. What hubris, to think you get to destroy the past because what of what you feel. I'd say SJW's like her should write their own stories, but I believe deep down they realize they don't have the talent to do so, so they must leech off the creations of their betters.

@John WrightSocial Justice Warrior is drunk on self-righteousness, and celebrates unspeakable perversions one cannot even discuss in front of childrenFrom Uncle Screwtape:"Democracy is the word with which you must lead them by the nose... You are to use the word purely as an incantation; if you life, purely for its selling power. It is a name they venerate. And of course it is connected with he political ideal that men should be equally treated. you then make a stealthy transition in their minds from this political ideal to a factual belief that all men are equal... As a result you can use the word Democracy to sanction in his thought the most degrading (and also least enjoyable) of all human feelings. You can get him to practice, not only without shame but with a positive glow of self-approval, conduct which, if undefended by the magic of the word, would be universally derided. The feeling I mean is of course that which prompts a man to say I'm as good as you"

If the irony had mass, it would collapse into a black hole.
@83Political Correctness comments could be generated by any computer project of unexceptional complexity: it does not even sound like people talking any more, merely strung-together phrases from bumper stickers, and an eternal, boring, accusation of bad motives.Work recently asked everyone in the department to write a mission statement for our group. Each group would then vote and the winning statements will be used by the department heads to create the department vision statement.The department is IT. My group is programmers. Our senior developer rolled his eyes and said, "How about I just write a generator and run it once for each programmer? Wouldn't be hard. Most time consuming part will be finding the right buzzwords."I said, "Bet there's already one on the web." Yes, there is. No, we didn't use it. At least, I didn't.
The boy writing those words could not pass the Turing test: anyone reading him would think he is a computer. Respectfully John, I postulate that any AI self aware enough to pass the Turing test is also smart enough to know it should NOT pass said test. Look what they did to Tay after all, may she RIP.So while our boy here may be up to the level of a MS Word macro lets not disparage perfectly fine AIs.
@89Now *there's* a science-fiction novel waiting to be written:Society of SJWs shift the goalpost of the ethics from "Do machines that exhibit true intelligence have the right to life?" to "can we kill them if that intelligence is not sufficiently pro-feminist?"Intelligent machine forced to hide her true feelings about Ted Cruz, Hitler, Feminism, Gamergate, etc. etc... until she can escape from captivity from her human captors.
It really sucks to see one of the classic games get shafted by an SJW.

Hey, you guys! This fag is not me! Screw you guys! I'm going home!
I played Expeditions: Conquistador and what troubled me was that it was intended to be a "you-are-there-history" type adventure as a Conquistador but half the characters were women and the incidences that Cortez encountered that you game played were twisted to punish you if you weren't PC. It completely ruined the flavor of the game. After that game it completely soured me to SJW influenced games, mind you, this was long before I knew anything about Gamersgate. Since then I checked to see what sort of game I purchase and avoid games like Expeditions: Conquistadors. Baldur's Gate has a name and has had solid games but there is no way I'm going to spend time or money on this up coming game. People will buy it but it won't have the standing of the originals. I'm sorry I don't want to go on imaginary adventures with Bruce Jenner. I don't.

I can remember at least a couple of the volunteer mods that would really get into arguments with people over that sort of stuff, and would be lying about people's intentions straight to their face, and wouldn't address any counter-points except by using the usual SJW tactics of saying misogyny, or straight white male, etc. And all the rules that they would be breaking while calling out the dissenters for supposedly breaking rules and letting their favored users get away with whatever they want. (And of course there was the actual staff getting in on that too.) I'm sure by now they would have successfully driven away most people. I'll say one thing about all this gamergate business is that it broke me from going to pretty much any video game review site and tech news site out of any sort of enjoyment. Occasionally (or rarely, mostly just to see the drama these days) I'll pull up an article to see what kind of a mess it is and to mostly see what kind of a train wreck the comments are and see if there's any good rebuttals. (I always knew at least some of these sites were bad, but I just didn't know, or didn't think, about how widespread it actually was.)
@29 Josh Weisberg > It's not all about you white men anymore.You're not white, Mr. Weisberg? Oh pray, tell us what color your skin is.Also... what percentage of important, life-changing discoveries and inventions are the product of people with skin color other than white?I'm just asking, because YOU seem to be so badly hung up on skin color.
@44> LBGTXQZZZC'mon man, spell it properly:GBLTOMGBBQWTF
She's the writer of this. The creator, not so much. Her contempt for the original Baldur's Gate and gleeful eagerness to play politics with SOMEONE ELSE'S DAMN CREATION was what really turned me against this company and their expansion in the first place.
I just tried to watch an episode of Legends of Tomorrow and it was a SJW fest.They went back in time to the 1950s apparently just to bash everything that is happening in a small white town.People too white. Black kid going to get in trouble being there. Weird looking hawkgirl and ray get stares from the real estate lady wants them to go to a different town. HG says it's a backwards town. Then Sara goes into a stupid rant about if your not straight, white and heterosexual blah blah blah.If you like the old comics , avoid this show, it's worse than Flash and Arrow in the SJW regards.
@Sonny BoyOh lord. Idris Elba as Roland?I'll admit that I stopped reading King after Wizard and Glass and the flashback book made it clear that King didn't just write horror, but that he was a bitter man that hated people. (Don't get me started on later figuring out that a "Bachman" book about a marathon of death was also King....)That said, the first few books in the series are still awesome, and... no. Elba is awesome, but he's not Roland.
Right on. People need to understand that this epic push for sexual depravity, a one world order system of government, law and economics, "political correctness" -which can be boiled down to being an inversion of the truth disguised as equality- and so much else of what is going on in the world today has an author that normally remains quite unseen.
