The strangest thing to me about the puppies - Zer Netmouse
The strangest thing to me about the puppies|
I don't know that I can provide links. I mean, sometimes what the sad puppies say
is they just wanted to promote diversity. But actual history is they did things like actively invite Vox Day on board
. So... I'm finding myself in a skeptical position.
I admit, it's really hard for me to see the pro-diversity agendum I had hoped you were hinting at when alluding,
"[And I want to acknowledge here that some people who supported the sad puppies campaign would not characterize their actions as anti-anyone so much as pro- more diverse participation in the Hugo Awards...]"
This whole movement just strikes me as being cartoonishly, melodramatically evil and stupid. The author in me rejects the notion that I am understanding it correctly, the same way my inner editor wanted to go after the League of Evil Mutants with a blue pencil. No-one thinks of themselves that way... there is just no way a human being can lack self-awareness on that level.
... or so I'd hoped. The more I read of what I call the "Unhousebroken" slate, the more I find this notion challenged.
