So, last night the SJW types over at the Hugo awards decided they'd rather burn the whole thing to the ground than give out an award based on what the readers like instead of social justice reasons:

The members of the World Science Fiction Society rejected the slate of finalists in five categories, giving No Award in Best Novella, Short Story, Related Work, Editor Short Form, and Editor Long Form. This equals the total number of times that WSFS members have presented No Award in the entire history of the Hugo Awards, most recently in 1977.

Here are a few of the people on the #SadPuppies slate that should be quite surprised to learn that they were denied a chance at an award for being white males when they wake up this morning: Rajnar Vajra, Larry Correia, Annie Bellet, Kary English, Toni Weisskopf, Ann Sowards, Megan Gray, Sheila Gilbert, Jennifer Brozek, Cedar Sanderson, and Amanda Green.

takyon: Here are in-depth explanations of the Hugo Awards controversy.

    How can that be?
    You hit all the checkboxes on the SJW approval list and you lost big.

    Because while SJW claims to be about all women and minorities, women and minorities who write the wrong things or are in the wrong crowd don't count as real or these purposes. The Sad Puppies list matches what SJWs claim to approve of, but not what they actually approve of.

    Err, nope. The puppies list matches what the puppies imagine SJWs approve of. You guys have a really big problem dealing with reality outside your bubble, its so thick that looking through it really distorts your perceptions. Either that, or you just love you some strawmen.
