The whole point is to live in a fantasy world. So why not go full SJW?
Maybe because it’s the wrong fantasy. It seems to me Gamergate was a clash of rival fantasist clans: SJWs attacked MGTOW nerds on their own turf.
The only reason any of this is a problem is because a lot of people lose track of the distinction between fiction and reality. Great literature is supposed to tell us something about the human condition. Pop fiction pretends to do that, but there’s a reason they call it escapist.
What’s needed is less pretension, and then the ideology wouldn’t matter. But leftist indoctrination tends to go hand-in-hand with efforts to make the genres more “literary.” Two fraudulent representations supporting each other.
It all started when they decided to use comic books to try to steer kids away from drugs. Didn’t think that one through at all, did they? And now here we are. It’s all propaganda.
Any way, there’s something wrong with full grown men reading comic books. Always has been, but now it’s also a bad idea even for kids to read them. (No, it wasn’t always. If they were trash, they were once harmless trash.)
