SJWs is the cancer of every medium and community

I have a confession to make. I play card games. Shocking, I know, that a gamer would play card games such as “Yu-Gi-Oh“, Cardfight! “Vanguard” and “Magic the Gathering”. The games are easy to pick up and play, though at higher levels can be difficult to master (as I’ve learned the hard way, while playing all three). Nevertheless, I am here to talk about “Magic the Gathering” and how Social Justice Warriors have infiltrated the community.

To get you up to speed, Magic is a 20+ year game, being one of the first collectible card games ever made, it’s given us some real gem of cards like the mythical Black Lotus, the most powerful card ever printed for any card game. If you are thinking about buying one though, be warned, cheap authentic Black Lotus cards go for more than used cars.

magic the gathering goes sjw

It was just a matter of time really.

My personal experience with Magic is back in 2006, when the Time Spiral Block came out, collecting Sliver cards. I stopped around 2008 until 2013. I’ve had my ups and downs with the game, sometimes getting dejected due to my inexperience and getting curb-stomped at tournaments because I misplayed a move or someone top decked into a win condition.

Well, enough with the whining about my poor track record in tournaments though. The issue that I have with Magic the Gathering is that the people in charge of the company are seemingly drinking the SJW kool-aid full tilt. In fact, Jesse Mason, someone who has Wizard of the Coast’s ear, mind you, has said this about anyone who doesn’t agree with their politics:

“This is not the opening salvo in a long campaign. This is not intended to change the minds of these awful people. This is setting the boundaries of who I want in my game store, in my cube drafts, in my Twitter feed, in my group of friends who play Magic.

It is our duty, as longtime Magic players, to throw out people who don’t belong. If I go to a PTQ and my first round opponent is a known hateful piece of shit, I don’t have to grace them with my presence and treat them like a human being playing a game. I’m standing up and walking out, because they have no business playing a game with me… Fuck you. I might catch more flies with honey, but I’m not trying to catch them. I’m trying to force them out.” – Jesse Mason

This is just… Out and out disgusting. That person is saying to me, because I don’t support third-wave feminism or SJW-ism, that I am not welcome to play or even buy Magic anymore (a good synopsys on the matter can be found in Supernerdland´s “Magic” post). Well, the SJW madness doesn´t end there, as I came across this post just recently:

At first, I didn’t want to believe it, that WoTC (Wizards of the Coast) would do this, that they would attack their audience like this…But then I saw the Reddit thread in question…

“if you don’t support our politics, you aren’t welcome in Magic anymore”

And it became clear that “if you don’t support our politics, you aren’t welcome in Magic anymore” is now the new normal for Wizards of the Coast. But then I was reminded of something that happened last year, where Drew Levin (a blogger and Star City Games contributor) got Zach Jesse banned for life from playing in Magic Tournaments because of something that happened 10+ years ago. Now I will say this, Zach Jesse did, in fact, serve a sentence for sexual assault, and I am not defending his actions. He pled guilty, got a plea deal, and served a minimal sentence.

Since that time, he has cleaned up his act, and it seems like he has not done anything wrong since. In fact, in 2009, he got married and in 2011, he applied to law school. That doesn’t seem like someone who is scum worthy of continual condemnation, does it?

I am a firm believer in giving people an honest second chance, as I know a few ex-cons who just want to live their lives and do honest work, but their criminal records hold them back. As far as I am concerned, if they paid their debt to society and aren’t causing trouble anymore, then they should be allowed to move on with their lives.

wizards of the coast bans a magic-player and sets off a tizzy among gamers

“Members of the Magic: the Gathering community are learning that NFL athletes are not alone in the world of competitive games when it comes to new standards of conduct for players outside of the locker room.”Observer.com

What makes the situation with Zach Jesse and the current SJW mindset of Wizards so astounding is that in 2012, Patrick Chapin, who was elected to the Magic Hall of Fame, had been sent to prison in 1999 on drug-related charges. And, again, I know ex-cons, and one of them told me this: “A drug dealer is a sex offender/pedophile who wasn’t caught. Every single drug dealer has had some underage kid sucking their dick for pot or crack at one point or another”.

These incidents don’t make the Magic community better, it causes the core audience, which, just from looking around, happens to be male, to lose interest and move on. Any card game can be competitive, and while it might sound sexist, study after study has proven that boys and men prefer more competitive activities. Except Volleyball, everyone loves volleyball.

I wonder why so many people like volleyball? (male as female) Gee, I have no idea why *sarcasm*

And then you have cute girls like this (Yoshimura, in this case) who play volleyball and everyone loves them.

The SJW nonsense must be put to an end!

Even around here, I rarely see girls show up at my local card shop to play any sort of card game. Sure, I see them play D&D sometimes, but usually, women and girls only show up when their boyfriends or parents bring them along. In the end, this whole SJW nonsense is just out of hand. Unlike what Jim Sterling said about Anita Sarkeesian, “She’s not going to take ya vidya games away from ya.”, it’s becoming more and more obvious that SJWs *DO* want to take away video games, card games and any sort of space that geeks and males tend to gravitate towards.

I don´t know about you, but I’m sick of it. Comics are a lost cause…Because the SJWs got to them early on, but both video games and card games should be free of this political drama. So it’s time to end this madness once and for all. As our hobbies should not be at the whim of outsiders who don’t understand it and don’t enjoy it. In the matter of fact, just recently Boogie shared his thoughts on the whole SJW infiltration into Magic and why he thinks what Wizards is doing is wrong…And in my oppinion, I think he was spot on with his “MTG Community is dividing 🙁” video.

So I´m just going to end this topic with a couple of comics from Jagodibuja where he takes some pot shots at PC Culture:
