from the white-males-have-enough-awards dept.

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.

    GamerGate makes a political movement out of threatening with rape any woman who has the temerity to offer an opinion about a videogame.

    Fucktards are saying that about me as I take part in that discussion and I take that kinda shit personal. It also willfully pretends the 1/3-1/2 (in my experience) of #GamerGate that are women don't even exist. Wired has been every bit as bad as kotaku since all this began, if not worse.

    Also, the pussies moved to wordpress and I just can't respect anything about them after that.
