She Bled Out
So, I just heard about this story on Geek Native.
Books of She Bleeds for Lamentations of the Flame Princess destroyed at the warehouse because it disgusted and offended one or more people who didn't even bother to read it!
To paraphrase the teacher from that Twisted Sister video, why would anyone destroy a defenseless sourcebook? If you don't like it, don't buy it. It's just that simple.
THIS is what the free-speech advocates, the Jordan Peterson fans, the anti-SJWs, the normal folks, and OSR Shit-lord RPG Pundit have been warning us about for years now. Cultural and political upheaval is manifesting war, and it's high time the average gamer got his hands dirty!
These people are mentally ill, trying to stifle creative freedom in order to preserve their conformity... or perhaps their own miserable and fragile sense of self?
I hope the individuals responsible get fired, author Elizabeth Chaipraditkul (that name just begs for an apostrophe or two) gets an apology, and LotFP gets reimbursed for the damages. You can get the PDF here.
I can easily imagine this shit happening to Alpha Blue, so we all need to keep our guard up and call bullshit out when we see it!
p.s. Does this post make me a feminist? Yeah, it probably does. So be it!
