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.

I didn't ask for censorship, I asked for the basic minimum expectations of journalistic integrity to be upheld. I can't believe your one-sided rant got through the editorial process and was posted as a "news story", and I wasn't talking to you. I couldn't give a shit what you think, but it bugs the hell out of me that you abuse a platform like this to spread your venomous bollocks.

Are you quitting SN over this?

You turned SN into a GamerGate propaganda outlet because you were too stupid to see the submission was... screw it, just read my journal and hang your head in shame, you pathetic excuse for an editor.
I didn't do those things and you are being inflammatory and unfair. My response is on your journal [soylentnews.org].
