Anonymous said: what did jontron do?

slunchy:

he used the word “retarded” (which is no longer an acceptable term to describe anyone with intellectual disabilities) as a negative word to describe a game console and a fan asked him politely over twitter not to do that, which, you know, is a reasonable request, seeing as it’s incredibly fucking offensive:

but jontron, being the empathetically stunted and ethically bankrupt gamer beardo we all knew in our heart of hearts that he was, blew up the entire thing, tried cracking jokes that were shitty even if you didn’t care about the slur, and generally acted like a huge asshat about it. Neil Cicierga called Jon out on twitter, telling him he was being a huge douchecanoe, and in response Jon just gushed at Neil, telling him he loved his work etc. completely ignoring the point at hand.

and then, just when you thought that you could pick up the shambles that remain of your loving devotion to Jontron’s quirky chubby gamer antics and reassemble some form of acceptance and tolerance for him as a person, he went on to call out Tim Schafer, who linked a video about violence against female gamers, and started attacking Tim about how men are depicted just as poorly as women are, exposing his final form to his fans: a whiny, self-important holier-than-thou MRA fucktruck whose only purpose in life is to prove everyone wrong about everything that isn’t about white male neckbeards.


and lo, built on nothing but piggybacking on Egoraptor’s success and cheetos dust, Jontron’s sprawling empire begins to crumble and collapse beneath him. former fans look on, horrified. i sit back and sip on a big mug of “i told you so.”

He told people they should be more concerned about Gaza than him.

Loses his fucking mind when called on it.

He also compared himself to people who were literally lynched and SJs to KKK/white supremacists.

Oh also this, when someone asked him to maybe settle the fuck down.

He did an interview defending himself with a site that’s basically an anti-SJ site, dumping everything into the category of “outrage”. It’s pretty stomach-churning reading about how he’s keeping it real and anyone that apologizes for offensive things they say doesn’t mean it (I think this is a potshot at Arin who readily apologizes for things).

Never forget that there was good five minutes of heart to heart conversation with Trelle sitting on top of Orem the whole time.

meaning Orem must have incredible core strength to lift an entire Trelle booty.

If you manage to get through a serious conversation with Trelle without some serious cuddling… your name is probably Ket.

randus is too nice to tase her off of him.

We dare you to say we don’t live in a rape culture.

Amazingly, not The Onion:

“[W]e now have young men telling Bloomberg News that they basically view their female peers as rape bombs just waiting to explode and ruin their lives.”

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

*flips table*

I wish I could say I can’t believe men would say such dumb shit.

Literally, go fuck yourselves. Bye.

I can’t believe I actually thought this was the Onion. Like… down to the photo of these white guys with beers and bad haircuts and everything

i thought this was the onion and it’s not.

pleasant surprise from the rccc faq:

step it up kumoricon. no con needs nazis.

GREAT JOB ROSE CITY COMIC CON!

not surprised since they’re a sister con to Emerald City, which is an excellent con.

I cannot tell you how disturbed I was by a massive banner at Yaoi Con that had nazis on it, like “welp, don’t wanna go to this con again”.

Minor Acts of Heroism will be at RCCC this year, btw! Table T-08 in the Artist Alley!

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

what kind of mental gymnastics do you have to do to justify not making games friendlier to women? it’s not like we make up most of the planet or anything.

His entire department at a previous town was shut down because of widespread corruption. they were literally so bad that people voted to close the police down.

take-a-flying-leap:

 

If your kid is living in filth, that’s a very obvious sign of depression and “something wrong”. And if they’re not cleaning it, you clean it. As you’re a fucking adult and parent. Or hire someone to clean it. You don’t let your kids live in filth. What the hell is wrong with you?Wow, you sure showed them. By letting them live all fucked up. Grade A parenting. Something is seriously wrong when people are living in their own trash, that’s a sign even with ANIMALS that they’re under severe stress. Good job proving your daughter’s point that you’re a shitty, self-absorbed parent.

"My kid was acting so nice to me and then cut me off for no reason"

Your kid acted nice to you until they didn’t have to anymore, use your fucking brain. 

If the result of all your “parenting” is that your kid does not want to see you and finds you toxic, then maybe there’s something wrong with your parenting. But no. Instead of trying to do better or figuring out what you did wrong, you’re spending your energy on defending yourself. Amazing.
