“Here’s how it was worked.
Wherever possible, Communists got converts and sympathizers in the film colony to sign pledges. They saw to it that the pledges were kept. Out of the salaries of the unlucky ones, came a certain, set, agreed-upon percentage for the party. Not all the agreements were so bald that the dupe knew his money was going directly into Communist channels. Sometimes the deductions were earmarked for this of that “anti” league, or some patriotic sounding unit with a professed fight against Fascism or Nazism. Whatever the name, the deductions went almost invariably to aid the Communist cause or into the pockets of the solicitors.”
Like those petitions, Government ‘calls’ and pledges.
We’ve had a black Spiderman.
A Muslim Ms Marvel.
Archie is sacrificing himself for a gay guy.
We’re getting a female Thor, flying in the face of a real religion (isn’t that offensive?)
and a black Captain America.
Yeah, geek culture is rapidly de-cooling. What these feminazis don’t realize with their controlling behaviour, they are pushing out the very people, the real, genuine, Original fans, who made these things cool in the first place. At LFCC, I don’t know any real fans who went this year. I stayed away, and I know one girl who showed up, saw the number of fake hipsters forming a massive queue and decided not to bother. Like a real geek, she didn’t wanna be jostled by that many people, no matter what it was.
5 years would be a stretch for how much longer this can continue, and certain films are gonna bomb at the BO, catastrophically for the movie companies stupidly trusting the SJWPBS they read on Tumblr. They couldn’t just do a Black Widow movie and a Black Panther and see how those did. They had to fuck with the formula and characters the best part of a century old.
If they ‘win’, and geek culture is ruined (I’m not reading Thor anymore for example they could’ve used Sif), hopefully it’ll show up what these people are like. You can’t have your own subculture, they’ll take it away from you. You can’t have your own characters, unless they fit their ugly moulds for the sake of percentages over art. The fascists have crossed over into fiction, and I believe this will ruin the case for feminism for the rest of this century with young people (who love our fandom). Their urge to control normal people and what we choose to patronize or consume always poisons them. Expect the backfire.
