“Royal Marine” Jonathan McCalmont of Interzone fame has blocked me from commenting on his blog Ruthless Culture.
I still have not lost my charm with post new wave fandom.
You can see the two comments I got in here. They are fairly tame IMHO.
My third and final comment dealt I think with a characteristic of the dear red Scot that others have not mentioned. So I post it here for posterity.
My comment is in reply to this.
“The single greatest fear of the American Republican party is that the white working class will someday realise that they have more in common with working class black people than with white millionaires. The greatest fear of the puppies is that white dude SF readers will one day realise that female black and minority ethnic writers have a greater understanding of what they’re going through than a tax exile with a trust fund.”
This is Marxist False Consciousness.
You even have the ol’ skool class basis of it mixed in with the new feminism and race variants.
You hit em all fam!
Good job….I guess.
“A lot of what passes for drives towards inclusivity and diversity in genre spaces is really nothing more than the market correcting itself.”
So your whole market analysis here is based on a mini-awakening from the false consciousness of the working classes (strangely only minority and women working classes) that supposedly occurred back in the 80s and 90s will somehow grow large into full on revolt by the entire white working class in their reading habits of SFF……
Holy fuck dude!
Why on earth would an awakening of the proletariat that was supposed to happen back in (((The Great War))) suddenly manifest today in white working class SFF reading habits!?!?!
Note: White Millennials are the most conservative generation the US has seen in modern history and white Gen Z polls even more conservative then them. Why they will SOON be consuming stories about POC trannys discussing the artisinal crafted food condiment singularity with their uplifted cats at the coffee shop rather than reading stories about Cyborg Kull with chaste NEET Jane in nanoweave bronze underwear over his shoulder lasering down hordes of uplifted tranny cats while they escape a Spengler’s Winter Apocalypse on 10,000 AD Venus is a question you left unanswered.
