Larry Correia addresses the wannabe’s latest hit piece in the Guardian. It’s as if he thinks he cries about us enough, Tor will reward him a book contract:
Women writers have asserted a growing presence in the genre, leading this year lead to a strong presence in all of the genre’s major awards.
Great. Despite the narrative about me to the contrary, I like female authors. I support female authors. I support authors from any group you can think of as long as they tell a good story and they’re not complete douchebags, so I guess you could say that I just support authors in general. I’m all in favor of anybody from any group being able to write what they want, more power to them.
So if we want true equality among writers how about we give awards based on quality rather than what box the author checks on an EEOC form?
Oh, but wait. I forgot. I like to judge people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. That’s racist now. I also like to judge a book based upon whether I like it or not, rather than ranking the nominees based upon the acceptability of their political outlooks or which ones best assuage my warm-beige guilt.
(speaking of irony, when the announcements were made and I immediately started getting character assassinated for being a hater of women, homosexuals, sunshine, and goodness with zero evidence, the book of the week I was promoting on this blog was written by a non-white immigrant woman and had a gay hero, but hey, narrative).
Women and non-white writers swept the board at the Nebula awards, winning every major category.
Normally, if there is a bunch of gloating and back slapping about how one particular group was totally shut out of something, we’d consider that bigotry. However I tend to forget that to a libprog diversity is literally only skin deep, while diversity of thought is evil and must be crushed. The same people crowing about this year’s diversity were happy to attack nominees last year for their religious beliefs, because that’s the wrong kind of diversity. They routinely attack non-whites and women if they aren’t of the correct political persuasion.
Speaking of gloating, Twitter after the Nebulas was interesting. If you take the tweets of the Social Justice Warrior crowd, Ctrl H, find and replace White Male with Jew, they totally sound like snippets of Heinrich Himmler speeches. It is hilarious until the nausea sets in.
And in the meantime, Damien tweets: “Vox Day is VERY upset that other conservative writers are distancing themselves from his extremism.”
(laughs) Now that I posted it here, that’s probably the most-read piece of fiction he’s ever written. See, I’m not a rabbit. I’m no more concerned what other conservative writers think of my opinions than what Damien or the SFWA does. They don’t need my approval, and I most certainly don’t need theirs.
And The Rapier finishes off the remains. Sweet Shakespeare, but the man’s blog posts make for far more entertaining reading than any 10 Pink SF/F novels. Read the whole thing. It is… Mr. John C. Wright at his soul-withering best.
I reject your kindly-meant advice with the wholehearted yet instinctive contempt a clean-minded bridegroom uses when throwing aside a disease-raddled whore who has lept from the garbage pit to embrace him.
My reason is this: It is not that I think Vox Day good, Mr. Walter. I do not know much of anything about him. I think you are evil. I know enough about you to know that, you smarmy, unctuous, long-haired, dough-faced, damp-fingered, weak-minded, small-souled, craven, race-baiting, unutterable failure of a human being.
The more you talk, the stronger your opposition grows, as the science fiction readership slowly comes to understand that you and yours hold them in contempt. You regard them as lesser beings. You talk as if they are the merely passive recipients of the political opinions you and yours want to program into their unwinking and dull eyes. You speak as if they are bags of meat, whose only dignity is in their most shallow surface features, namely, their skin color.
That is your picture of the men and women I revere as my patrons and patronesses.
You think you are better than them. Your reason for thinking yourself better is that you abandoned the intellectual clarity and moral discipline, that you call ‘reaction’, which they embrace. You think you are better than them, not despite, but because you are worse; objectively and obviously worse; worse as a thinker, worse as a man.
Ultimately people judge a man by how often his mouth is full of manure, I fear you will deeply regret your public display of coprophagy in the future.
