A quick round up of things that make me go “Ugh, white people, why?”
CN for the obvious subject matter
So after the hot garbage fire that was Twitter’s underbelly driving away Ghostbusters star and SNL cast member Leslie Jones off the platform, Twitter was lit the fuck up with people demanding the staff Do Something about the damn hot garbage fire and the one who started it.
One of the hottest most trash dumpsterest fire of them all, Milo “Aryan Youth Blond ‘Do” Yiannopoulos. They threw his ass off, permanently.
Since then the hashtag #nerbannedparty has been making the rounds, to my ever loving delight. But, while I’m delighting, it’s not enough.
Twitter, we shouldn’t have to bombard you every time a hot garbage fire of harassment chases someone off your platform. For all your talk about Doing Something about this shit, you ain’t done enough shit. Judgey Bitch, banned, still pops up with a new moniker. Notorious fake goth Cathy Brennan has gone through HOW many Twitter handles? People are still getting their mentions blown the fuck up with nonsense.
You’ve proven you can do this. Now keep doing it. Show us that you give even a smidgen of a fuck about keeping your platform from becoming a total and complete shitshow. Users shouldn’t have to create things like Block Bot to keep themselves and those of like mind safe. People, celebrities or non-celebrities, shouldn’t have to suffer a torrent of abuse with no way to get help. It’s unacceptable.
As for the lovely and funny Ms. Leslie, might I suggest turning this mess into a sketch for next Saturday? Which one of your white male cohosts would look decent in a bright blonde wig?
(EDITED TITLE BECAUSE WHERE THE FUCK DID I GET 31 FROM? I DUNNO)
Because I don’t want to give the video itself clicks (the cover picture looks like a direct reference to a dear friend who has suffered from harassment that ended up making her sick), here’s a response by Kevin Logan to that video where he just plays the audio.
Michigan joins the list of states who attempted to slander welfare recipients by forcing them to endure drug tests – and finding damn near none of them are on drugs.
NOT ONE SINGLE POSITIVE RESULT
*throws up middle fingers to Michigan* NONE!
So, Martin Hughes wrote this blog post after watching a recent video by the shitmuppet known as The Amazing Atheist (who will after this be simply called “The Annoying Asshole”) where said shitmuppet responded to a video called “20 Questions Black People Have for White People”.
Some of those responses were, as we like to say in the liberal side of things, problematic. Also, some were clueless (really Teej? You have no clue how gentrification negatively affects those who LIVED THERE FIRST). Others were downright fucking racist.
Good news, everyone! The smash flop Watch_Dogs has a sequel a comin’! Yay!
And even better, the lead ISN’T that Aiden jackass! Seriously, JACKASS.
Holy moley did you see the trailer? The lead looks, OMG, sit down, hold on to your beverage: BLACK!
And that was when some Steam users left the parade. Well, not before dropping some bits of shit in the forums. Thankfully, Jim Sterling did the digging so I didn’t have to and found the best corn in the shit, stepping on every single one of my pet peeves of entitled gamerbros.
“Wah, this character is just shoehorned in!!” Dude, the game isn’t even out yet and it seems to me that this lead will fit in perfectly. You know, since he’s the lead and all.
“EMBRACE DIVERSITY. PREPARE YOUR CUCKSHED” Yes, because accepting a character that isn’t Grizzled Straight White Male with MANPAIN number 39023 is EXACTLY like watching one’s wife being fucked by another man.
Also, a whole host of harmless perverts called. They want their word back. What you’re doing to ‘cuck’ is just disgusting and twisted.
“It’s subtle propaganda…” Oooooh, how subtle. One black lead today, ALL BLACK LEADS TOMORROW! MWAHAHAHAHA *lightening strike*
There was more, including the use of “dindus”, which should be written on a piece of paper and thrown into a bonfire, but my favorite was, “Black people don’t know how to use technology.”
I present my reaction in a series of pictures:
Okay, on the serious, I’ve been sick of the fact that any part of my humanity being reflected on the media I consume is “pandering”. Fuck you. What a bunch of whiny babies, crying because some other kid got a cookie while they’re holding a jar full of ’em. And got the damn nerve to call us SJWs ‘sensitive’ and ‘offended easily’.
Oh, I’m sorry, it’s only being offended easily when it’s someone you don’t care for. When it’s you, it’s a measured reasonable reaction. Heads, you win, tails I lose.
Well, guess what, buttercups, you better keep those hankies handy, because as game developers, both indie and the various As, start to recognize that they can do more than GSWMwM in their games, you’re going to be crying a lot more.
Because we’re winning. And besides, you hypocrites, you’re going to buy and play the game anyway, because you’re a bunch of addicts who can’t even hold off on online preorders, even though they’re complete fucking toss and a waste of money and you whine about them every time (like, for example, the previous Watch_Dogs prerelease. How you liking that ‘iconic’ cap?).
So, throw your tantrums, have your meltdowns. The rest of us, who just want a good game (without fucking Aiden that fucking unlikable no personality thug) are just sitting here like:
So I made this comment on a friend’s Facebook in response to their concerns about the voting process here in these United States:
I really wish everyone who is this concerned about the voting process would be this concerned when there isn’t a big deal election happening.
…then maybe, just maybe something could be done about it.
The comments quickly devoted into a “Bernie lost/No he hasn’t” argument, which made me roll my eyes at the missed point and post that same comment on my Facebook.
