As you might have already heard, Luke Crane has been forced to resign over the stupidest weak-sauce bullshit you could imagine.
Similar to what's been happening to Governor Cuomo in NY, Cuomo should be getting his ass handed to him over killing all those elderly people in nursing homes and then trying to cover it up. But instead, the left wants to beat him over the head for sexually crude comments and trying to kiss a secretary or two.
What can I say, the progressive, radical-left are fucking insane... and they're ruining this hobby.
Luke Crane got in trouble for having Adam Koebel as a contributor to his KS project when the real reason he should (or should not, depending on your view) be scrutinized is that Luke Crane was head of the RPG division of Kickstarter, creating conflict of interest red flags.
I, and many others, have discussed the Adam Koebel nothing burger until we're blue in the face. From now on, EVERY SINGLE SESSION I RUN FOR THE REST OF THIS YEAR will include the pushing of a button to simulate at least one (probably multiple) non-consensual robot orgasm. Jesus tentacled Christ, who the fuck cares?!?
Getting back on track, the social justice warriors seem to think this hobby is theirs, that "the community" is so important, so evolved, so much better than the OSR and regular gamers who don't want politics in their RPGs.
Yes, the collective can be as seductive as an angry mob to certain people. If you join, you get perks! But don't be fooled. It robs you of your identity (ironic when you think of identity politics), controls you, and eventually leads to the death of freedom. Hello, cancelation!
And to all the people who've said that either cancel culture doesn't exist or "it's just fine," let me remind you - ignoring the problem won't make it go away. You guys are just as guilty of poisoning elf-games as those vilifying individuals just trying to live and make a living irrespective of the woke authoritarian regime.
Makes you wonder what would happen if Koebel, Crane, and the rest of the SJW gamers just refused to apologize, refused to recede into the shadows. Can you be canceled if you don't let it happen?
Well, it worked for Gina Carano but didn't work for Zak (though, he's still blogging and putting content out there). Both are talented, but the former seems like a sweetheart (confirmed by Bill Burr) while the latter... well, yeah. He'll probably always be a hyper-argumentative asshole demanding his version of objective truth and unequivocal apologies.
Anyway, goodbye to Luke Crane, a continued farewell to Adam Koebel, and adios to every other SJW who crosses the ever-encroaching and self-imposed line of what's "socially acceptable". You guys are spineless, easily offended, back-stabbing, cry-bully collectivists. Fuck all y'all!
