2016’s Biggest SJW Freakouts Over Video Games


Heatstreet gives us the last Christmas gift of the season.

Quote:
Nothing is beneath offense when you’re perpetually offended. From sexy clothing to political references, no video game is without sin according to culture critics and social justice warriors who stop at nothing to find content to be outraged by.

These self-proclaimed moral crusaders, who embed themselves firmly within the games press, have blasted their outrage in the form of “hot takes” across social media and video game publications. Here are some of the many things SJWs lost their minds over in 2016.

Tracer’s Pose in Overwatch
Given that Overwatch has one of the most diverse casts in any game, you’d think social justice warriors would love it. They do, to the extent that people who shoot at health packs can enjoy a video game—but they also hold it to a ridiculous standard and find fault with the game any time it “slips up.”

Via Heat Street

The game caused massive outrage when one of the female characters, Tracer, had an unlockable “victory pose” with just enough sexual appeal to cause male feminist allies to have seizures. Even after Blizzard removed the pose, the game is still being called sexist for having a few female characters who appear to be younger than their male counterparts.

I saw that, I thought his post was right on the money. We all loved her first for her looks and then grew to know that she was brilliant, talented and intelligent.

Isn't that what everyone wants people to remember about them???

Congressional Candidate Brianna Wu?



The Unsavory Past of GamerGate ‘Victim’ and Congressional Candidate Brianna Wu

Quote:
If it weren’t for the drama surrounding the politics of video games, no one would have ever heard of Brianna Wu. A notorious figure in the 2014 GamerGate fiasco, Wu rose to fame after she claimed video-game enthusiasts were harassing her with death threats for being a woman in the game industry. I was the first to write about her.

Now, the once-unknown game developer has announced her run for a seat in Congress representing Massachusetts. Wu, 39, runs an independent game studio called Giant Spacekat and she says she intends to campaign as a Democrat on a platform of privacy rights, online harassment and economic policy.

“I am a national figure of women’s rights,” said Wu in an interview with the Boston Globe. “When people hear ‘Brianna Wu,’ they think Internet harassment, and advocating for women in technology and the workplace.”

In her online journal, WU has an entire entry about looking down on a woman at her company who he was mad at for becoming pregnant during crunch time for their game. Their awful game which, by the way, looks like this:



Nutjobs are on board with Wu's diatribes until the see Wu's games are the embodiment of everything they're supposed to be against. Then they're just confused.

XX = Female
XY = Male
Attached or removed body parts do not alter this reality.

Any other position on this is mental illness, with about .01% (that's a hundredth of 1 percent, not 1 percent) having chromosomal abnormalities related to sex identification.

It's not difficult. Unless you're ill. Or progressive.

Liberals are shit people, they're mentally ill, they prove that daily between their outrage over the silliest of things, ignoring biology when it comes to gender, attacking free speech anytime it disagrees with their viewpoint, the list goes on and on, Liberal progressives, are simply mentally ill.

I consider myself a left-leaning progressive. Doesn't mean I'm shit or mentally ill or that I approve in any way with the emerging tyranny of the left.

I, as a left-leaning progressive, have about as much in common with these SJW cunts as true right leaning republicans have in common with Donald fucking Trump.

Theres a whole lotta room on the political spectrum besides the extreme left/right fringe idiots.

He really opened mouth inserted foot on that one. Beautiful creature.... holy cow she's witty and bright as well? As if the combination is a rarity in women. I'm not even remotely feminist but damn that was a dumbass tweet.

What an absurdly man-child world view you have.
You can't defeat an ideology. That's why the "war on terror" has done exactly nothing.
Trump won't be able to do a single fucking thing to stem the tide of "social justice" and the Tyranny of the Left.
Not.
One.
Fucking.
Thing.
