IGDA DC people react to the bomb threat. Not.

 

Those comments really show that it is actually possible to stuck your head so far up in your own **** that the only thing you see is your own ****.

They are behaving worse than the avarage group of 14-year old girls.

These aren't just some random people. Chris Totten for example is co-chair of IGDA DC, has written for Gamasutra, frequent speaker at GDC and DIGRA.

Related rumor: FullMcIntosh "harassed" Joss Whedon on Twitter about how "problematic" Age of Ultron was, all ending with Joss deleting his account.

I'm curious about this "Woman in a refrigerator" trope, and I couldn't think of a better place to ask a few questions:

Why is it just not called revenge as it used to be?

Is affection for a loved one now a negative thing?

Is apathy desirable?

Is it only women whom can be in this metaphorical refrigerator, if it is a man, a ghost or anything else is that alright?

Does this strike anyone as a slightly desperate try to justify a trope?

Why is this demeaning, are the victims supposed to be invulnerable and uncared for for some reason?

It was named by Gail Simone in reference to Kyle Raynor's(Green Lantern) girlfriend being killed and left in the refridgerator for him to find. She felt female supporting characters were misproportionately killed off violently to give male characters motivation to fight the villain as opposed to male characters. This was a good point as Uncle Ben and Jason Todd are the only examples of this I can think of. It has been adopted by SJWs however to mean any time a female character is killed.

 

 

To be honest, it was a trend at the time.  There were a lot of characters killed in gruesome ways in the 90s as part of the grim and gritty trend.  That the majority of them were women was notable, but there were instances of men being killed as well (the "Eclipso" bloodbath, for example, or the destruction of the JSA that allowed DC to bring forth a new round of mantle-wearers).

 

But it was something that had always been in comics:

Mom and Dad - Batman

Katana's Husband - Katana

Dan "Blue Beetle" Garrett - Ted "Blue Beetle" Kord1

Roy Lincoln's Dad - Roy "The Human Bomb" Lincoln

Ted "Wildcat" Grant - Yolanda "Wildcat" Montez 2

Vernon Van Dyne - Janet "Wasp" Van Dyne

 

Could probably think of more if I cared to.

 

It goes back to the roots of the superhero comic (Doc Savage's first adventure is finding out why his father died; Richard Benson, the Avenger's first adventure is about avenging the death of his wife and daughter to criminals, etc.) and possibly the way they're so often inspired by mythology (where a lot of people died propelling stories)

 

1DC origin only

2Technically Grant didn't die but had his back broken, so you could argue it not being quite the same thing

It's a rumor so far, so therefore no sources.

See. I can believe it to be true. Why? This is typical of SJWs. Whedon is on their side. He bashes GG and they proclaim him 'hero of the SJW' but  you make one wrong move they will completely turn on you because there is no shades of grey. You have to bow down to them on all issues. It doesn't surprise me because no matter how much he protetsts, Whedon's work has never been SJWish - not even Buffy despite it being a female led show. Sure, there are 'SJW elemnts' but it also has anti SJW elements so they hate that. :)

Ah, well it could be many things. Before I would have said tribalism would've kept them from calling out Whedon, but I think we're at the point where they will cannibalize each other.

I'm just laughing at them turning on each other. When even Joss Whedon can't please them anymore.

I don't know if this is why he removed his Twitter account, but I am finding a load of evidence of criticism and abuse by the feminist community. Apparently they are pissed about a sneaky rape joke and Black Widow's character development.

This isn't the first time SJWs have attacked Whedon despite him being all up their butts. :D

Haha, that's maybe 12% of the reason. Obsidian should give him a sympathy call, because I'm seeing the word transmisogynistic thrown around more times than I can count. Also referencing prima nocta as a joke counts as "legitimizing modern day rape culture".

What the hell happened to Miles Cheong....?

 

CEMHl_R4_WAAABCbc_png_large.png

He's switching sides again. It's all a progression.

 

1: He starts as a nazi.

 

2: He takes a step in the right direction and becomes a SJW. <--- Annoying as they are; I'd take a SJW over a nazi.

 

3: He's taking another step in the right direction and is going to be critical of both GG and SJW's.

 

4: Eventually he'll take another step and say he's more sympathetic to GG than SJW's.

 

The trend will keep going until he's a straight up right wing libertarian.

Whatever else the guy has done. Calling out bs on their side if only a handful of times is more than most of them are willing to do.
