A little surprised by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to what I thought was a very lazy “Is ComicGate happening?” Article I threw together on a whim. Anyway while I don’t think things will escalate to that point I did foolishly promise to keep an eye on things for my readers. So here I am. Again I’m not a comics guy but I know when to shut up and listen when experts are talking. It’s all one big NerdWar anyway and us geeks need to stand together against the pozz.
Milkshake Madness (not using that stupid hashtag) probably isn’t going to blow up any bigger than it already has. The fire simply has no more fuel. What are poor comic books fans supposed to do? Many Marvel titles are getting effectively zero sales. Are enraged fans supposed to not buy comics even harder? Comic readers simply don’t have enough leverage left to create a ComicGate scale event. I could be wrong there but that’s my prediction based on the news I have… things will die down in a few days.
That said expect the White Knighting and frantic virtue signalling to continue for at least more few weeks. Fedoras gotta fedora after all and this as a good an excuse to M’lady as any.
Awesome song but damn if it doesn’t fit.
Is there a positive side to all this? Yes! We are beginning to see the continuing rise of what I guess we’ll wind up calling AltGeekMedia. A sane and non-pozzed alternative to the cancerous cringefest that tries to pass itself off as “Geek Media.”
This creates a Permanent Opposition to the SJW Narrative that did not exist up until now. Slowly the tide turns.
Aw… That’s cute. They think they’ve already won.

“This thing is getting really, really weird.”
A lot of good analysis here and he’s still ruthlessly savage at points.
Use of “purse puppy” as a verb? + 50 Points.

First serious SJW attack? It’s like when a made man does time for the family. A rite of passage.

“Let’s start with this. We know Heather Antos is a lair.”
Note the importance of the narrative change (from SJW Marvel makes shitty comics to comic fans are sexist racist manbabies.) This is virtually identical to what happened in the earliest days of GamerGate and involved a few of the same ‘geek media’ outlets. This is why Milkshake Madness resonates so much with the old school GG crowd. We were there and we just so happen to be spergy enough to recognize the SJW attack pattern.
Same narrative. Same wording even. I had to check the calendar to make sure I wasn’t stuck in a timeloop.
Again an important point here neither DnC or Capn Cummings were involved in GamerGate or Sad/Rabid Puppies or any either such counter-SJW movement but they curiously report THE EXACT SAME PATTERNS OF SJW BEHAVIOR.

Semi-Related: Vox Day on the eventual rise of Alt-Culture
Again it is going to be VERY interesting to see how many people who would otherwise not have anything to do with the Alt-Right or Vox Day will choose to support the Alt-Hero Project simply on the Fuck You Marvel Principle. SJW Marvel may have picked a very bad time to declare war on their fans.
Anyway that’s all I got for the moment.
