Den nyeste runde af giftig fandom: Du er da ikke lesbisk nok til at spille Batwoman.
Men det mindede mig om dette velskrevne indlæg på John Scalzis blog forleden: The Gamification of Rhetoric
It’s really frustrating to me that more people don’t understand that racist/alt-right people have gamified their rhetoric; they’re not interested in discussion, they’re slapping down cards from a “Debate: The Gathering” stack, and the only goal is taking heads.
They gamify their rhetoric because essentially this shit is a low-stake game for them, whereas for other people it’s their actual lives. That’s an advantage they have. If they lose, they shuffle their cards and go on to the next thing. If others lose, their life takes a hit.
Det er fristende at tænke på alt-right er en indkogning af fandoms scorecard crew til blot card crew.
