I’ve mostly just been sitting around watching British television all night. Recently, Pramface has been on the menu. It’s a great show, and has a guy named Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones) playing a supporting role. I remember him from one of my other favorite UK shows, Ideal. Anyway, to make a long story short, both of those programs are well worth your time. You know what isn’t worth your time, though? Buying Brianna Wu’s bullshit. Just as many of us predicted, Wu has gone full-victim over her asinine “Samus is Trans” article from Tuesday. This was the goal all along. I guess this odious slag has her eyes on another motorcycle or some shit (she was alleged to have spent a previous Patreon haul on just such a vehicle).

You’re welcome, readers.

Here’s some sections from the second consecutive kooky Mary Sue column. Their standards clearly aren’t that high, people. They know a nut like Wu brings in the views, though, regardless of intellectual coherence:

The most harmful, damaging argument by far is that by claiming Samus is a transgender woman, I am somehow taking away her legacy as a strong female character. This, put bluntly, is blatantly transphobic and terrible. Cisgender women do not have a monopoly on the female perspective. Neither do white women or straight women.

Yesterday, Idris Elba was trending because many white people were unable to see him as James Bond. Clearly, if you can’t imagine Bond as a black person, you have unconscious bias against black people. Similarly, if you can’t imagine Samus as a transgender woman, you have unconscious bias against transgender women.

Yea, this is just like Idris Elba. That’s the ticket! All the cishet shitlords will understand that reference!

You can see the wheels turning in that demented Wu mind. She clearly wants to equate trans issues with racial ones, even though they’re not even close to the same. It’s a cheap and tawdry rhetorical device that’s designed to ratchet up discord. It’s one of the reasons things are so fucked here in America right now. People are so quick to throw gasoline on everything in order to score political points. It’s sickening, and needs to end. Of course, that end looks very far off at this point.

Anyway, let’s sample a little more insanity before I move on to the next story:

Sakamoto’s further comment doesn’t invalidate the idea that Samus could be transgender, it just brings up more questions. Why would creators disrespect a character and trans people by dangling her potential transgender status as a joke? What does that say about how transgender people are treated by the games industry? And why can’t transgender gamers look at jokes like that and reclaim them? This is exactly what happened with Poison, whose transgender status was slowly accepted as cannon.

(full article)

This whole thing is probably the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard anti-gamers come up with. Samus is well-known as one of the most celebrated naturally-born female characters of all time. There was zero legitimate evidence pointing towards her being trans, but because Wu and The Mary Sue needed to print some bullshit for clicks, here we are. The only silver lining is this shows those who were somehow still on the fence just how crazy John Flynt Brianna Wu really is. If the nut is willing to put out unhinged garbage like this, just imagine the crazy that’s being hidden from public view. The good thing about that? Wu’s crazy always outs in the end.

  1. Wouldn’t making Samus trans make her a male character by their logic? Or were they saying that Samus was a tranny? Terminology is confusing.

    1. MTF are second class females in faux progressive logic. FTM are gender traitors. Faux progressives fucking LOATHE transgender people unless they need a couple to help virtue signal.

      1. I disagree.

        SJW logic puts trans women at the top, or close to it.

        In feminism, I agree, but it is important to distinguish SJWism from feminism. SJW feminism is sort of its own thing, built a lot on intersectional theory where all oppressed people have to have their voices heard above cis white men.

        Let’s not kid ourselves, real trans people have had it shittier than pretty much everyone. Problem is that they seem to believe this rubbish that dysphoria is not a mental illness. So people with legit mental illness are not dealing with it as if this is the case and more or less projecting their crazy everywhere. For example, Brianna Wu.

    2. Samus could never be trans. Her history shows she was a girl as a child. Wu only picked her because she, in her narcissistic mindset, needed to make some waves & went the troll route as usual. She wasn’t going to choose some third rate RPG character. Some Street Fighter player she is that she forgot about Poison who is generally accepted from her Japanese history as trans & nobody gives a fuck. Poison is just a great character.

      Maybe next time she can say Aeris was trans & that Sephiroth was transphobic by killing her. Wu is spent. She has nothing to offer aside from keeping more women out of tech this year except for perhaps Ellen Pao. In her mind, if women start coming in, then she’s not needed anymore. Catch is…the women are already there!

      1. I read some comments on twitter. You can never guess their excuses.
        They said: “Maybe she had a sex change when she was 2”

        I am not kidding! These people are the craziest folks alive!

  2. Women don’t have a monopoly on the female perspective. Black people don’t have a monopoly on black perspective. Transgender people don’t have a monopoly of transgender perspective. Logic dictates all are true or all are wrong.

    We can easily imagine Idris Elba as James Bond because he’s a suave motherfucker. Except, if you care about art, then until someone with authority with the character definitively states Bond is a code name and not a single white individual played by numerous actors, Bond cannot be black without being black for the sake of being black.

    We can easily imagine Samus as transgender. This may be labelled transphobic by purse clutchers but we all remember the big reveal at the end of Ace Ventura with Mr. Winky.

    But accepting the idea she’s trans falls on deaf ears when the creator says “Samus isn’t transgender.” While I applaud Wu’s use of the forfeited concept of things dangling, a fan and a bunch of reactionaries misinterpreting a word that had different meaning 20+ years ago is not dangling the idea that Samus is trans.

      1. BARN DOOR RAT SOUP EATING HONKY MUTHAFUCKA!
        –Dolemite

        Now I ask you, how are you going to translate that immortal moment in Dolemite into cracker talk? CAN’T BE DONE. Jesus, I love Dolemite and his all girl army of kung-fu killers. Rudy Ray Moore was the shit.

        1. Well it’s more about proving their double standard. We don’t act on it. Though, maybe it could be done just gotta go about it right. I just wanna see them start yelling at us.

    1. Regardless of who plays him next I think it is probably time for them though to just go that direction and state in the next movie that James Bond is just is a code name, it would simplify shit tremendously. Just state the all the people in the cell are using hand me down code names so that’s why they’re always different people every few years.

      That way they can just keep rebooting it as often as they want and avoid continuity snarls.

      1. I always thought it was a code name. As that made it easier for multiple actors to play the part. I think Ian Fleming even said something about it in an interview but I maybe wrong on that.

      2. They can do that if they’d like. I love Elba as an actor but I still won’t watch it. I’ve never been a big Bond fan. I think I saw Golden Eye and that scene with Daniel Craig’s Bond chasing a guy up a crane, but the character never interested me.

        My fear though, is that making Bond a codename no longer makes him a character with a storied history but instead a Jason Bourne figure or a Triple X figure.

        As a fan of stories, I’m the kind of guy who gets pissed that there’s a black Stormtrooper for the right reasons. I spent a shit ton of money on watching episode 2 and 3 and buying expanded universe canon that established all Stormtroopers were clones of Jango Fett. So troopers can’t be black or female or Daniel Craig (Disney suggested it) because they’re clones of Temuara Morrison.

        So anyway, if the mythos of something I care about is haphazardly thrown away with a sentence of exposition, I imagine that it’ll be like that for Bond geeks.

        I say give Elba his own original MI6 franchise that people can draw to. Let a new legion of geeks form around the stories and mythos of a black character built on his own successes and don’t put Tyler Perry or BET films near him. That the debate is even being made tells us Hollywood wants a black guy in a power role, so why not make one for him?

        1. I spent a shit ton of money on watching episode 2 and 3 and buying expanded universe canon that established all Stormtroopers were clones of Jango Fett.

          IIRC the first-generation of Stormtroopers were clones of Fett, the later generations were regular humans drafted due to the clones tendency to have physical & mental problems from rapid growth and training.

          1. And the clones are also more expensive than just grabbing every unemployed hayseed in the galaxy and killing fifteen percent of them in boot camp with no fucks given.

            If that’s the reason someone doesn’t like black stormtroopers at least that makes sense because it’s coming from an honest misconception about George Lucas’s poorly explained world building. I dunno how many times I’ve had to explain to someone that the Empire was HUMAN supremacist not white supremacist. It’s as bad as people who can’t wrap their heads around the fact that the COG in Gears of War are giant raging fascists just because there’s a black guy in the squad.

  3. This calculated ass hat need to be boycotted by all people. She is abomination to her people and followers, she does NOTHING for society except troll, troll troll. And trolling all the way to the bank!

  4. Stop posting pictures of Breanna Wu in your articles. It’s hard not to vomit in my mouth…Other then that, great reporting!!!

  5. I’m starting to have some serious fear that people like this are respected and looked up to. What the hell is going on these days!?!?

    1. A lot of people are crazy or dumb. They always ask questions like: How could stalin or hitler become that powerful?
      The answer: Because of idiotic supporters like the ones of Wu, Fraudkeesian and van skankenburg.

      1. Fuck man, Hitler was as evil as they come, but he was the best orator of the 20th century. Historians voted on it, no one did it better.

        No one before or after has been able to whip up a crowd as well, and he had many very intelligent people amongst his supporters.

        1. Thank god. Could you imagine what a nutcase like wu would be capable of with the power that hitler had?

          1. Yeah, thankfully she comes as what she is: a hysteric windbag.

            Hitler, on the other hand, came off as brilliant and passionate.

        2. Also Hitler was far more sane before a constant regime of drugs and the ego of having some lucky ideas in the early war meant his mental stability steadily went down-hill from early ’41.

    2. Plato said it best a couple of thousand years ago;

      “Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehoods school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.”

      Plato (c.427 – 347 BC)

      I can’t remember who said that those who ignore the warnings of the past are dammed to repeat them, but we’re surely doing that now with these SJW wankstains.

  6. And thats the reason why neither Anita nor Chelsea want to have anything to do with this person.

    Think about that: Two well known frauds don’t want to have anything to do with the 3rd fraud cause that nut job is too crazy for them!

    She is a vile creature. First she cried about games not having enough strong female characters. Now she tries to turn the most iconic female character into a born male!?
    Don’t you realize that means that women can only be though when they are born with a Y chromosome?

    Not even Anita does that much damage to women and what the fraud does is a huge damage.

    Fuck Off Wu Manchu!

  7. Jeesh, you know what. I don’t care. If trans people want to live vicariously through Samus, let them.

    There is no reason to believe she is trans and it is not “cannon”(sic). But video games are about projecting fantasies and having fun.

    If pretending Samus is trans makes it more fun for trans people, so be it. I have no issue with it, but that does not mean I have to indulge in such fantasies.

  8. A lot of reasonable people ask Wu and the other nut job: “If you want trans characters why don’t you create your own instead of trying to turn existing female characters into trans?”
    There answer? “We are not developers”.

    Let us all remember that one of these 2 crazy motherfuckers had the chance to create trans characters but chose not to. Also never forget that this “diversity champion” made them all white.

      1. Thank god Wu’s 15 minutes of fame only have like 3 minutes left. You know you hit rock bottom when you must start writing for one of the worst sites ever cause no one is listening to you anymore.

          1. They want to be taken seriously and call their site “themarysue”. The cunt in chief also blocks everyone on twitter who asks her if she even knows what it means.

            My theory is that she thought it means “powerful female character” and found out what it actually means when it was too late. She can block people all she wants it doesn’t change the fact that she was too dumb to google the definition of mary sue before she started her dumb PMS tainted bully site.

    1. The reason they don’t create their own characters but instead try to co-opt already existing characters is simple, its marketing.

      In todays climate, everyone has a message, everyone has an angle they are trying to exploit and everyone is vying for the same small space in an over saturated market where getting any attention is increasingly difficult.

      The time and effort it takes to cultivate a character and build a fanbase is incredibly large, and requires a great investment and a lot of work. As we’ve seen, these people don’t want to do work, they don’t want to actually put any time into what they are doing because they are selfish fucking assholes who want their way and they want it now.

      So, what’s an enterprising pseudo-activist to do in cases like these? Make the creators of an existing character bend to their will through public pressure and co-opt that character to push their own agenda.

      We saw it with female Thor, we are seeing it with them trying to make Peter Parker from Earth 616 gay, we will continue to see it with them forcing their ideological tenets onto things where they simply don’t belong.

      These…zealots, the infantile wailing hyper-activists don’t want to do any actual work when it comes to creating because they know how long it takes to get any traction, so they simply force people with popular things to bend to their will by constant scrutiny of their work. Its more important now than ever to stand by creators and let them know that we have their backs and that they don’t need to change what they are doing to satisfy a small minority of pissed off self important assholes.

      We saw this recently with Mass Effect 3 where people got all butt hurt because Bioware didn’t create their art the way these fucking entitled babies wanted it to be. They cried their little selfish asses off until Bioware fucking caved in and changed the ending of the game. This sort of behavior is sickening and an artist should NEVER change their art to suit the community.

      An artist is there to put art into the world, and once they have birthed that piece of art, their responsibility to the public is done. They did their job and whether the public likes or dislikes that art is completely on them and they should never have to go back and audit or amend their art because someone didn’t fucking like it.

      I remember there was a time when some crazy fucks wanted the Mona Lisa changed to make her smile. Like within the last 50 yrs! They wanted to have someone repaint the fucking face on the Mona Lisa to make her smile because they didn’t like it!

      INSANITY!

      These are the same people we are dealing with now, who think that life is like stopping into the Burger King lounge, and you can have it your way!

      INSANITY!

      1. The ending to Mas Effect 3 before the patch was total shit, and a lot of people rightly complained about it for being total shit. I don’t recall anyone demanding the developers go in and change anything, but the heat the game was getting because of the ending was beginning to effect sales and was destroying the viability of the game as a renewable franchise ala Mass Effect: Andromeda.

        The patched up ending that actually made ending the game enjoyable was damage control for a massively botched project that could have killed the enterprise.

        I was one of the many people who ragged on Bioware for dropping the ball, and told folks not to buy the game if they valued closure to the story, as the ending to the trilogy was a total cop out with zero effort put into it. I didn’t care if Bioware ended up changing things (the thought never crossed my mind), but I sure as fuck cared about the absolutely abysmal finale we were delivered, and knocked on the game and developers for failing as spectacularly as they did.

        There is a difference between this and demanding a game conform to political ideology. You would do well to think of that from time to time.

        1. Yeah ME3 left me totally disillusioned with Bioware, to this day it’s the only Mass Effect I only played once and it has pissed me off so badly that I will probably never play any game in the trilogy ever again. In fact I wont even play another game in the franchise unless there’s a really good steam sale and I’ve heard lots of good things about it from people I trust.

          Funny thing is I’ve read what the ending to the trilogy was SUPPOSED to be according to the guy who co-wrote the first two games but had no imput on the third. His intended ending was actually bleaker but it makes tons more sense.

          1. Oh? I heard that the Reapers weren’t even supposed to be a major element of Mass Effect 3. Instead they were going to down the angle of the decaying stars, which is what Tali was researching in Mass Effect 2.

            Do you recall what the author in question mentioned?

          2. Yeah it was something about how the galaxy itself was facing some sort of impending natural disaster or death in regards to that stuff you mentioned, and that the Reapers had been aware of it for millions of years. The way the ending was originally supposed to play out according to him was that when you finally had the reapers on the ropes they’d break down and explain it to you.

            You’d be left with one final choice, either kill the reapers who despite their vast superiority were unable to solve the problem that the Council would then inherent. A problem that would by all reasonable estimation destry the galaxy within a hundred thousand years or so.

            OR you could at that point choose to join the reapers, becoming the controlling intelligence of the most advanced one yet constructed in hopes of making the Reaper cycle finally achieve it’s purpose and create an entity intelligent, creative and powerful enough to fix the galaxy’s health problems.

            That’s my understanding anyway. So the originally intended ending was less New Battlestar and more Modoka Magica.

        2. “I don’t recall anyone demanding the developers go in and change anything…”

          You don’t remember the myriad forum posts and online petitions people created at the time to try and force Bioware’s hand? I do.

          Regardless, I’m just using this as an example that is game related to display that sort of entitlement complex whereby people (in my opinion) step over the line and force artists to change works and to me this is incredibly troubling.

          1. I don’t. Seems I totally missed out on a piss fest.

            I get what you mean by an entitlement complex, and if that sort of shit went down (I do believe you when you say it did), then fuck those people. I don’t think anyone should be cowed into changing a project they’re passionate about because of, well, wailing hyper consumers.

            That said, Bioware made the right move by deeply revising the ending and putting in the effort that they should have. It created a real, satisfying, sensible end to the series. The entitlement wailing may have been wrong, but you could still factor those people out and end up with a shit ton of folks who wouldn’t touch Mass Effect after such a failing on the dev team’s end.

          2. From my perspective, I didn’t have a problem with the ending, so the whole thing seemed overwrought to me to say the least. But like I always try to say, or at least be as consistent as possible, to each their own and this is just my opinion.

            The shit I saw where people were trying to do petitions and wanting people fired and what not, was just beyond that pale. I remember seeing endless forum threads where people were losing their fucking minds about something I saw as being an artistic choice and one I didn’t particularly have a problem with.

      2. Indeed. I’m sure most of these people dont really care about the trans issue. If you replace the word trans in the article with for example apple they would still defend it and throw tantrums on twitter screaming. “SAMUS IS AN APPLE WE ARE IN THE RIGHT!!!!”. This people are like 5 year olds “I WANT TO HAVE MY WILL!!!”. Thats all they do.

        1. I think some of them do care about the trans issue, but like you said, it can be any flag they want to wave from apples to baby goats. The intent is still the same whereby they want to co-opt something famous as a means to their end.

      3. The reason they don’t create their own characters but instead try to co-opt already existing characters is simple, its marketing.

        In todays climate, everyone has a message, everyone has an angle they are trying to exploit and everyone is vying for the same small space in an over saturated market where getting any attention is increasingly difficult.

        The time and effort it takes to cultivate a character and build a fanbase is incredibly large, and requires a great investment and a lot of work. As we’ve seen, these people don’t want to do work, they don’t want to actually put any time into what they are doing because they are selfish fucking assholes who want their way and they want it now.

        So, what’s an enterprising pseudo-activist to do in cases like these? Make the creators of an existing character bend to their will through public pressure and co-opt that character to push their own agenda.

        We saw it with female Thor, we are seeing it with them trying to make Peter Parker from Earth 616 gay, we will continue to see it with them forcing their ideological tenets onto things where they simply don’t belong.

Its more important now than ever to stand by creators and let them know that we have their backs and that they don’t need to change what they are doing to satisfy a small minority of self important assholes

        I’ve been saying roughly the same thing for months and couldn’t agree more.

        You know what the replis have been from the antiGG crowd?
        (I know you can guess, but I’ll type it out anways)

        The only reply is the sound of crickets chirping…

        As you said, SJWs don’t want to (or more likely CAN’T) create new characters and/or ideas – they simply want to erase the existing characters and replace them with their “acceptable” version (while keeping the all-important/highly-valuable name.)

        THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THEIR APPROACH AND EXPLAINS WHY THEY ARE FACING VIGOROUS OPPOSITION.

        As far as I’ve ever seen, not a single rational gamer has ever stated that they object to characters that are gay/trans/black/female/queer/etc.

        The fact is that 99.99% of the gaming community doesn’t give a fuck if games with LGBT/Non-Binary/otherkin/whatever are made. Such games would be simply added to the existing gaming environment.

        What I have heard however is a ton of folks objecting (often rather strongly) to is changing preexisting & well-established characters, without anything beyond we need more/diverse/inclusive/non-white representation in video games.

        Why not just make your own game(s), chock full of whatever it is you want more of?
        If there’s a strong market for your game(s) you’ll make a shit-ton of & serve a seemingly untapped, under-served audience.

        I would think that approach would be a win-win for everyone involved, but as we all know the SJWs don’t want a win-win

        Edit: corrected spelling and removed extraneous words…

        1. Precisely. A win-win doesn’t work for them because they are suffering from being entitled, coddled, babies who always get their way and cant accept anything other than complete and utter capitulation as an outcome.

          This is just like the religious right or any other religion, they don’t want you to just agree that they have their right to their own ideas, they want you to stop what you’re doing and change the way you live to suit them. Its not good enough for them that you keep your kinks or proclivities behind your bedroom doors, they want you to stop because they have a sense of entitlement re-enforced by their religious text that tells them they are correct and nothing but complete surrender on your part is enough for them.

          I hate to trot out the catchphrases and common languag that have become so popular and almost dog whistle at this point, but when you have these totalitarian sjw/religiously righteous mindsets, its never about, you do your thing and I do mine, that’s never good enough for them, and never will be. I’ve seen it for decades now with the religious right pushing their agenda concerning birth control, womens rights etc etc, and now we have the new feminist religion entering the fray and using the same tactics, only their holy books were written by radfem morons who think that castration at birth for men is the only way to prevent rape.

          Its funny because growing up, I never considered race, sex or sexuality an issue until I had radfem fucktards beating me over the head with their ideology and telling me that because I didn’t think about it I was an white male oppressor with privilege, except it was just not an issue to me because I don’t look at people and judge them in the ways these people do.

          I have gay family members, a friend of the families son transitioned to female, I’ve been in mixed race relationships, so their weasel words and double speak about all those things never meant fuck all to me because they were and are to this day non-issues for me.

          This whole affair where gender politics and all this other bullshit is extremely distasteful to me personally because I have seen the damage it does for decades at this point, and the funniest thing about most of it is, its middle or upper class white women doing most of the talking in these situations. The audacity of these fucking pampered goddamned babies is appalling to say the least. But you bring that up and they lay the old gem “but we are speaking for the voiceless….”.

          The whole thing stinks of yesterdays fish, as they say.

          1. Its funny because growing up, I never considered race, sex or sexuality an issue until I had radfem fucktards beating me over the head with their ideology and telling me that because I didn’t think about it I was an white male oppressor with privilege, except it was just not an issue to me because I don’t look at people and judge them in the ways these people do.

            ^This^ So much this^

      1. they lack creativity and the spark of imagination that lives in all humans, those things and many other things that make a person human have been removed in place of rhetoric, groupthink, and outrage.

  9. Brianna Wu before she was outed as trans: You are only a good person if you were born female, like me!

    Brianna Wu after being outed as trans: You are only a good person if you were born male and had a sex change, like me!

    1. No no, both mindsets are both used interchangeably these days. What ever sounds best for the weeks current trend to whine about

      1. A ton of people (me included) knew it from the start. Shes no Kim Petras. Of course SJW’s were shocked and surprised to find out she used to be a man.

        1. “She was such a beautiful woman, she passes sooo well…” (I nearly puked writing that imitation of SJWs.)

          But seriously, SJWs are typically ugly. You know it’s bad when Sarkeesian is easily the hottest among them.

    2. I don’t think Wu was ever “outed” as trans. That’d be like “outing” total biscuit as “english”.

      I also don’t think Wu has ever directly admitted or stated in any way that she is trans.

      I mean, not that she needs to. Although if you’re such an advocate of trans people and trans rights, you maybe would want to support some of them through your own hardships and affiliation rather than just speaking of them and supporting them as if they’re “those people” (ie, people you care about, but aren’t in any way identifiable with you).

      Shit, remember that one girl (I think she was trans?) that came to Wu for help on twitter and Wu shut her down and shit all over her, because it wasn’t about *her*?!

      1. Yup. Wu has always been a narcissist and a horrible person. Before her sexchange she got restraining orders and complained that she wasn’t allowed to use the womens bathroom.

        There are also some trans women commentatimng om her tweets about that trans-samus bullshit that dont agree with her even saying she doeas more damage than good to trans peopel with her article.

        Of course these trans people are
        A: Not followers of the braindead fullmcintosh cult and
        B: blocked by the mighty Wu

  10. So I took a moment to actually skim through Wu’s crappy article…. just, my god. Aside from taking the “new-half” quote completely out of context, she tries to insist that Samus is trans because of her height…. seriously? You’re saying that girls can’t be tall? Oh, and the way they try to refute claims of canonical sources showing her as a young girl… “Did YOU see them showing off a little girl’s genitals? No? I thought not. I rest my case!” Like, you seriously wanna go there? I also love how they outright lie that both the American and Japanese instruction booklets refer to Samus as a “he”. While the former is true (and that’s more an error on Nintendo of America’s part), the latter is just an out and out lie. And it’s funny that Wu could state all this stuff about the term “new-half”, yet neglects to keep in mind that, in Japanese grammar, it’s actually very easy to keep genders ambiguous when using second or third-person terminology (IOW, while Japanese does have “he” and “she”, they more often use equivalent terms that are completely gender-neutral). Of course, knowing Wu, she just wanted to focus entirely on what a “new-half” is without a doing a bit of research on the actual language in question.

    On another note, have I ever mentioned how based CollegeHumor is? They recently called this stuff out for exactly the kind of bullshit that it is.

    Dorkly also did a video against SJWs a while back. Gotta say, though, the ending’s kinda iffy (though, I’m hoping Dorkly doesn’t actually believe the wage gap myth so much as he just wanted to end his video on a punchline, with the joke being that, for all the speaking out against social justice activism that the ninja did, he ended up doing something that he could rightfully be called out on).

    1. I owned the Nintendo booklet for Metroid when it first came out, and it did in fact reference Samus as a male. Personally, I was always under the impression that it was half deception, half production oversight, as the “Samus is girl!?” reveal was added last minute, after the game was already completed, on a total whim by the dev team.

  11. Normal people get into a car – not as a man, homosexual or non-white – but as a driver. That simple truth about how people approach art is beyond the cult of gay feminism. They see Patriarchy, race and gender in their sleep. Whether it’s illustration, literature or photography, this cult reduces it to whether you have nuts or not or your skin color. Naturally, when you subvert art like that you will destroy it’s ability to actually be art, and also it’s entertainment value to normal people who are not obsessive sociopaths convinced the world is out to get them.

  12. All I see is flames rising.

    As the support dwindles, the big ones leave for better game, the threat of fire too great.

    The midrangers don’t know enough to get out, becoming the big ones, ignoring the fact that they left, rubbing their hands together, focusing on their new found power in the ecosystem. They notice the fire in the distance, but they think can weather it, or it won’t come this way.

    The small game are only there to aid the midrange. They’re not tall enough to know the fire exists.

    In the end, the fire lit for the prey will consume, only the big ones who left to start anew will be spared. As the fire grows closest, the small and the middle will fight tooth and nail to survive, the prey watching from the distance at the spectacle. The fires will take the predators, or they’ll fall to each other as they all fight to get out alive.

    Only then will they realize, their prey was too much for them.

    Fan the flames, it’s only a matter of time.

    1. only the big ones who left to start anew will be spared.

      That was how it went, but times have changed.

      With the growing awareness of & backlash against SOCJUS any new sectors SJWs try to conquer will now be far more aware of their nature and the sectors they’ve already conquered are rising in rebellion.

      The balance of power has shifted decisively, it’s all down-hill from here for SJWs.

      Oh sure, they’ll have times when they can mount some counter-offenses but any gains they make will be quickly retaken and in the long run it just means they burn through their reserves faster.

  13. I can totally see a black person as James Bond… except if it’s in a comic or video game, then it’s obviously doing it for their crappy definition of “diversity”, like what Marvel did with Thor.

  14. Oh god damn it Ralph, fuck you for that picture. Seriously, I didn’t want to see or know of its existence. Now I got decent amount of nightmare fuel to burn off thanks to you.

    And this is coming from a person that generally laughs at atrocities you get to see via shock sites.

  15. “You can see the wheels turning in that demented Wu mind. She clearly wants to equate trans issues with racial ones, even though they’re not even close to the same.”

    Godfrey Elfwick disagrees. #Transblack life.

  16. Bond is a Caucasian British agent from the 50’s and has been for 25 movies. It’s not a matter of racism to assume that he always would be white. It’s that it wouldn’t cross anyone’s mind to think otherewise. It’s a natural presumption that that’s his skin color. It would be the same if, for some reason, someone were to mis-identify Blade as being white. Or Shaft as being white. Or Mad Max being Asian. Or Wong Fei Hung as Hungarian.

    No one would change any of those other characters, but because Bond has the white skin then you can interchange him with any other ethnicity. It just comes off as a racist sentiment that “white” is a vacant hue with no ties to outside influence, like say, Flemming himself.

  17. Transwomen are women so by Leibniz’s law you can easily reason that all women could also then be considered equivalent to transwomen, so it’s hardly as though Wu’s analysis is incorrect. But more importantly this goes to show how poorly women are represented in video games given that so many feminine main characters are just men pretending to be women, likely because the misogynistic game developers can’t stand the idea of having a truly strong female lead that doesn’t have a dick.

    1. Yes all Zebras are Equines so all Equines are Zebras. Except they aren’t some for example are horses and horses are not zebras.

      So no. Your logic does not hold and trying to say “could also be equivalent to..” does not cut the mustard.

      Her analysis is COMPLETELY incorrect.

      Okay prove (no assertion but PROVE) that the game developers HATE WOMEN. No, you do not go getting around the point but saying, “Well if they do not have women in games represented in the way that I want they obviously hate women”. That is the height of dishonesty.

      Here is a thought. Follow it i you can.

      Game developers want to make games that are good and by good, I mean are popular in the market place. Such a game will make them or their company money and be a profitable and therefore worthy venture.

      Are you with me so far? I know this is pretty straight forward and logical but you have already shown you want to misuse logic.

      What is likely is that the the Progressive values YOU want to be pushed are for YOUR benefit. If a female character is shown as masculine they get slammed with half-witted zealous ideologues saying stuff like this “likely because the misogynistic game developers can’t stand the idea of having a truly strong female lead that doesn’t have a dick.”

      If they are shown as feminine they are slammed for being too objectified.
      So what is the choice? I dunno, maybe just make the games that the majority of the marketplace that will buy your games will accept and enjoy regardless of the representation and if you risk YOUR money to make the game YOU want and it sells, call it a win.
      You have this all so far?
      Are you a hardcore gamer? Do you buy a lot of games? Do you dedicate much of your leisure time to them? If games were made to your set standards to placate your indignation and righteous zeal, would you buy and play them?
      Are you prepared to do what the game developers of Sunset did, and take all the financial risk and actual effort and make a game with the Progressive values that you wish to inject into the Games industry (I mean sure they failed but they at least tried) or are you only prepared to insult others taking all the risk and effort when they make games that YOU personally do not like?

      1. I realize your transphobia blinds you to reason, but I’d appreciate it if you’d try not to mansplain to me about a uniquely feminine issue. Though if you identify as a woman it probably is alright for you to have replied to me, hard to tell since these ridiculous comment sections don’t allow us to display our preferred pronouns.

        On Wu’s analysis though, she very clearly pointed out how she viewed Samus to be trans and no one can deny that she sees that to be the subjective truth on the matter. What some misogynists have wanted to suggest is that she and her friends should be striving to put out some mythical “objective truth” which can never truly be obtained as we all can really only give an opinion on what we to be true, and when it comes to Samus if major authorities like Wu make it clear that they see Samus as trans then that means that is their truth.

        1. Clearly do not reason.

          “I realise that you have a hatred of a identity class of a people, that you may or may not have any opinion on at all, and that you have not referenced nor alluded to. I really hate you arguing logically on an opinion you disagree with me on, because you are not allowed to have it, on the basis that you are the wrong identity class”

          Got it. I mean its dishonest and weak, but I got it.

          I will tell you something scary. Anyone can have an opinion and whether or not I am white, black, Asian, straight, gay, cis, trans, male or female has NOTHING to do with the validity of what I say.

          Here is another scary thought. Regardless of whether I am Asian or black or white, female or male, trans or cis, gay or straight, my opinion is NOT “more right” or “less right” on the basis of these identifiers.
          What is more, using these identifiers as a means to determine the worth or worthlessness of the person voicing the opinion is bigotry.

          I do not give a damn if someone is black or trans or female. I do not give a damn. It does not give me pause to think. It does you though. It does, and you hone in on this and filter everything through this bigoted filter.

          Wu is not a major authority. Major authority in what for goodness sake?

          Wu did not “clearly viewed Samus to be trans and no one can deny that she sees that to be the subjective truth on the matter”. What she ACTUALLY did is state it as a fact and told everyone else that they had no place believing differently.

          She stated it as fact and truth and had it disproved. She could have said “I believe Samus is transgender.” or perhaps “I would like Samus to be transgender”.
          Perhaps that could be her next game. However if she is bothered by the lack of Progressive values and diversity in games maybe she should have made a transgender Samsus-like heroine rather than a collection of unrealistically ultra-skinny white girls (Revolution60). Food for thought there, huh?
          As to whether she believes the idiocy she rambles, I don’t know, I don’t really care either. Idiocy is idiocy, whether believed or not.

          1. What is true to you is not necessarily true to xir just as what is true for me may not be true to you. This is the nature of subjective truth which is the only truth any of us can really profess to know. Also, while everyone is entitled to an opinion, those of certain backgrounds will have those backgrounds add weight to their opinions. When people of color are having to worry that simply robbing a convenience store could result in them being shot by police, it adds a weight to their opinions on the merciless nature of the police that a white person’s will never have. If this isn’t something you feel you’ll ever understand then I feel sorry for you.

          2. So are all equines, horses? Is this subjective? If I believe it and post it in an article about zebras, do I get a pass on it, due to it being belief?

            What about news generally? Should the papers just run with whatever they feel may be true? If they think the sky is falling should they state this as fact?

            No. You know better than to make this argument and you know there is a multitude of ways this will collapse on itself.

            As for your comment “When people of color are having to worry that simply robbing a convenience store could result in them being shot by police, it adds a weight to their opinions on the merciless nature of the police that a white person’s will never have. If this isn’t something you feel you’ll ever understand then I feel sorry for you.”

            Really? Going there? Okay LET’s Go there

            What is happening here and who to?

            Okay so we have a young white boy who was in absolute agony after falling from a bridge, breaking his back, only to get tasered by police.
            We have a blind man using a cane, get tasered by police.
            We have a young white man with down syndrome get killed by police
            Young white guy sleeping in bed and shot 16 times
            We have an 8 year old white girl getting tasered by police.

            What is the commonality between your description about what happens to people of colour and police, and my examples? (I will give you a hint, it is nothing to do with colour of the skin nor gender nor disability)

            So yes I feel sorry for you because you are still making no point.

            You do not get to wave away truth or facts as inconsequential and promote ideologies as better. Truth is not wishy-washy and mercurial.

  18. I frequently check the #samus and #samusaran. Can you guess who the ones are that say “samus is definitely trans and everybody not agreeing is transphobic!”?

    I give you need a hint its mostly folks who retweet, favor and follow “great” people like dipshitz, van skankenburg, fraudkeesian, fullmcintosh and of course themarysue and Wu Manchu.

  19. This character is trans!

    No, it isn’t. The creator of the content did not make that character trans.

    Yeah, I’m the creator and I didn’t make that character trans.

    SHUT UP YOU TRANSPHOBES!

    FFS. Nobody has a problem with trans characters. They have a problem with you APPROPRIATING EXISTING CHARACTERS AND CONTENT TO FIT YOUR AGENDA.

    Jesus fucking christ YOU ARE A GAME DEVELOPER.

    YOU HAVE A GAME STUDIO.

    MAKE YOUR OWN FUCKING GAME WITH YOUR OWN COOL FUCKING TRANS CHARACTERS.

    I mean, fucking shit, if someone who wasn’t trans *did* make a trans character in a video game, you’d be shitting all over them for not doing it right ANYWAY and calling them transphobic because they “got it wrong”.

    So just make it your fucking self and stop trying to commandeer other people’s creations.

    I mean, personally, you know what? If that new Cyberpunk 2077 game the Witcher guys are working on had you playing a trans main character — I wouldn’t mind. If they were written well and really interesting, that’d be pretty fucking cool.

    I don’t have a problem playing a gay character, a black character, a trans character, a female character. I don’t care if I play as a plumber or a space man or a dog or a worm or a thing of some sort that doesn’t even exist in reality. Just make it an enjoyable experience that in some way is compelling.

    Just stop appropriating other people’s shit to serve your own agenda. That’s fucking classless.

  20. Heres another one for the SOCJUS/marysue crowd that you can call a transwoman next. I actually would love to hear them defending their “SHE IS TRANS!!!” theory considering she gave birth to 3 kids.

  21. The way I see these issues falls in line with Stan Lee’s, if one wants to see characters with select characteristics, MAKE THOSE CHARACTERS! Stop trying to take the easy way out and take strong, pre-existing characters and make them ‘your way’. It takes zero creativity and effort to bitch and moan that a good character doesn’t fall perfectly in-line with your worldview. Sure, there’s risk involved, a lot of characters fall flat at first (or period), in my opinion, alot of the early black Marvel characters were simply created as ‘black’ characters without compelling character traits but got better with time (see Power Man/Luke Cage and Black Panther) as writers developed their personality traits. When it comes to original characters, we got great hits like Miles Morales and Kamala Khan (if you haven’t read the first arc of the new Ms. Marvel, you need to). When people continue to rip apart established characters and try to rebuild them with niche-chic images, the characters end up worse for it (see Jane Foster as Thor).

  22. Wu is a mad dog, who needs to be shut down at every turn, until she decides to sit down and actually speak and think objectively (probably never going to happen) that’s why anyone with any common sense shouldn’t be getting angry at her article but rather use it as an opportunity to point and laugh at the stupidity and quite obvious projection of her own sense of self on a character whom she has no connection with, other than a fantasy relationship that in itself is nothing more than a manifestation of a sick mind desperately crying out for help! Or attention, or money, may be all three.

    Side note.

    She’s been quite thoroughly shut down by @mombot who translated a segment of an interview by one of the three responsible for making the Metroid franchise, Yoshio Sakamoto. However it should be noted in @mombot’s translation, the term new half was translated as transvestite instead of transgender, this is in direct relation to the joke that’s Sakamoto was making, in reference to a misquote in and interview in 1994 by one of the artists who referred to samus as a new half, which in itself was most likely the impetus for the article in the first place. So you might be saying to yourself doesn’t new half referred to a transgender person, will apparently not, in the link I have provided there is a explanation to the entomology of the word, and its origins and its potential meanings contextualize in the Japanese language, and through this you will have a better understanding of why @mombot translated the word as transvestite instead of transgender, special attention should be given to the last two paragraphs.

  23. Let’s get this straight. She pokes and prods with a provocative column that seems to have the intent to goad a response. Then when there is retaliation, she pulls back to claim that she’s the victim?

    This is classic bullying. Poke the target enough, and they’ll strike back. When the nose is bloodied the bully will wail “but I did nothing wrong!”

    Bully.

  24. If you can’t see James Bond as black…. you’re unconsciously biased against black people? Did that cunt just accuse millions of fans of the James Bond legacy of being racist? James Bond is white and from the UK because that is his CHARACTER PROFILE. Jesus-tap-dancing-christ.

  25. This case demonstrates the need for constant attack on SJWs, because anything less and they start fabricating nonsense for their echo chambers. Harass on, soldiers.

  26. “Many white people” can’t see Idris Elba as Bond? The whole damn thing was started off because the idiot who’s currently the official Bond author said that Elba was “too street” to play Bond. He rightly got told off by “many white people”.

    As for this: She was trolled by a “Nintendo of Florida” account, and went with the “Oh it was a joke” defense. Comedian Brianna Wu, everyone!

  27. Making those statement points out her own hypocracy to a T. She claims Samus has always been transgender because the character designer said so in some random guide book(…was it a guide book? I’ve already forgotten) despite the people in charge of the series stating “No she has always been woman.” then turns around chews people out for not wanting a black James Bond…who is QUITE established from the start of the series as being white. These kind of fucktards need to start pushing for new IPs or characters that fit their own wants instead of appropriating others. I love Idris and if did a JB like movie..I’m gonna fucking see it.

    Ralph, I also enjoyed Pramface. Other bit shows you should check out, Moone Boy (loosely based off of Chris O’Dawd’s childhood), and of course Luther which stars Idris Elba.

  28. I kind of wonder how much of rev 60 is actually the eunuch’s work as and not the work of “her” contracted staff.

  29. Just because men wish they were female, they also wish real women were men pretending to be female, so they can validate their faux femaleness. Trans women are men. Samus is a female video game character. Cisgender is a made up fake word that is meaningless. Just because a boy puts on makeup and a dress, it does not make him a girl.
