I read some of the comments and people against the FNAF guy are absolutely mental, like one person was mad Scott had five kids (And one more on the way) calling him irresponsible,
Sounds about right. Part of it is just looking for anything to demonize him over, but it's not an original thought. Recall that woman who posted pictures of her and her 4-ish kids in matching yoga pants. Typical always-online normie mom behavior but some lunatic saw it and got an outrage mob going. And then everyone dogpiled on because it's more people the planet can't support or more white people, depending on if the attacker's an enviropsycho or an ethnopsycho.

As a game developer he seems to tick all of Jim's boxes, supporting fan projects financially as well as with merchandise and publishing rights plus another of Jim's pet peeves is crunch and Scott saw development of his upcoming game wasn't as polished as he wanted so delayed the game instead of forcing the team to finish it by Christmas but Jim never even commented on any of that.
Jim trades on outrage. A developer who actively avoids crunch is like an orphanage that didn't burn down last night: No one cares.

Hey, if we pull off some hard core scientific breakthroughs that defy everything we know currently, maybe one day a man can become a woman, and I support all the research needed to get there! Mostly because part of that will require some hardcore gene modification and that shit has some serious benefits for treating some awful diseases. If some fetishists abuse the technology than it'll be nothing new.
I suppose I shouldn't rule anything out, I'm just basing this assertion on the fact that after decades of cosmetic surgery existing there are still people walking around looking like the Bogdanoffs with bolt-on tits, so the idea you'll be able to turn a man into a woman indistinguishable from the genuine article seems like pure science fiction.

I agree though: If it will cure diseases and help people with real problems then I can live with troons using the science as an irl character creator.

You forgot the +

The plus is funny to me because there was a brief time years ago where the plus in LGBTQ+ didn't mean "and all the other genders and identities", but "plus sized".
Wait! So the landwhales wanted to attach themselves as a "oppressed sexual minority"?

Why not? At this point LGBTQWHATEVER+ has fuck all to do with fighting for any rights and has become a collection of Fetishists with no personality beyond their sex/kink/fetish shit and I can imagine that those nutjobs see being attracted to body fat is the same as being attracted to your own gender so they take their made up words for it and toss them into the orgy pile.

The only reason the whole thing hasn't rebranded into some form of "Kink/Fetish Acceptance/Normalization Movement" is they would lose the ENTIRE momentum that LGBT movement has built over the past decades and that momentum is the only reason anyone cares.

It's envy. These freaks know that their Twitter spazzouts and hoarding cheap plastic junk does not a legacy make. They will die in misery.

I think Trump's a fucking exceptional individual but I don't give a tin shit whether Cawthon does or not. I judge a creator based on the quality of their creations. Hell, I still love the Cosby Show without the faintest feeling of guilt.

Now, FNAF is overrated dreck for the most part, but I gotta say, I was surprised and impressed when Cawthon released Ultimate Custom Night for free. Not just cheap, but free, despite knowing that he could make serious bank even if he only charged a buck for it. How many other game creators have ever said "you know what, I have enough money, this next one's on the house"? Isn't that the ultimate expression of Jim's anti-TRIPLE AAAAAAA belief system, to give content to fans for free purely out of gratitude? And he turns on him for his political beliefs? Beliefs that are non-existent in the games themselves?

The games themselves might be questionable garbage, but personally I consider Cawthon to be the ideal independent game developer. He's enjoyed his career, made serious money off of it, has a stable and happy home life, and has a fanbase that's crazy about him and his work (and not in a Dream-esque way). Whereas Jim hates his job, has a precarious and ultimately doomed financial outlook, has severe mental and physical issues, a failed marriage, and a fanbase leaving him in droves. Remove the beam from thy ass, Jim.

I can't imagine how exhausting it must be to have to virtue-check every creator of every thing you might potentially enjoy.
The sad part for me is that Jim, instead of covering how fucked corpos can be, is instead trying to pathetically punch down a dude who made a successful franchise by themselves instead of:

- How Funko is trying to make NFT Funkos

- Control, instead of being built into working on the Switch hardware, was made into a cloud working version, defeating the point of having it on the Switch.

- How terrible E3 was for being an all digital convention.

Nah, let's dunk on an indie dev cause Orange man bad.

To be fair, I think the next video will be his annual E3 video. He just waited because it was still going at the time.

Kink/Fetish was added in some form. At some point. I remember the news articles or something of the sort. Or they wanted to. And why the fuck not? They encompase so much now it may as well just be called "People". And lets just be honest. Adding Kink or Fetish is the only way they're gonna let pedos in without actually saying what the fuck they are. Because once they start saying pedos are okay it will get destroyed.

All this talk of "They're literally murdering us in the streets !" really does beg the question of why he moved to the U.S.A. in the first place, and then didn't go back to the U.K. instead of moving cross-states (Which I'd assume is not all that different in the grand scheme of things), on top of the fact that if he wants to go through with any more transition, it'd have saved him thousands of dollars to be on the N.H.S..

From a UK point of view I think one reason trans people were doing okay was because their main opponent were TERFs mostly of the cliche angry militant man hating lesbian variety and the public were increasingly okay with trans people who were seeing a specialist and put in effort to have the public to view them as their chosen gender, 'born in the wrong body' seemed to be a common phrase before but the public don't agree with the self identification 'You are whatever gender you say you are' kind of mindset and visually seeing men with full beards and male genitalia wanting access to female toilets.

Trans people like Jim on social media act like Britain is some kind of fascist hellscape but it seems that literally the only thing the Conservative government are doing which they don't like is not allowing self identification (As well as not enough funding but there's a pandemic going on so Trans people are not a priority, they still get gender affirming surgery or whatever it's called on the NHS).

Jims concepts on the UK have always been skewed, he seems to view the day to day experiance of lgbt people over here as deep Isis territory with the overall experiance of being british being something simular the comedy monkeydust mixed with come to daddy by apex twin I'm genuinly curious about how he perceives our culture overall.

For as much as he complains he certainly moved to the most white conservative part of the state as well... Probably because it's also the safest.

Wait wait... has anyone read this "personal life" section of his wiki? Has the whole "psychologically abused by his mother's lover, a Hell's Angel reject" ever been discussed?

Oppressed minority, yes. Sexual, not so much.

Look up Healthy At Every Size (HAES) if you want the details, but the short version is they believe that fat people are oppressed by the thins. HAES trying to attach themselves to LGBT didn't last long. They're also not very high on the progressive stack so they don't get much attention.

I doubt he buys his own bullshit. If he does, I think he's believing his own bullshit.

I've made the comparison to the atheist vs christian debates of the late 2000s before, where "ex-atheists" would grift the christian's by going on talk show and pretending that atheism was nothing but drugs, vice, and secretly believing in god but being mad about it.

If trans people are "murdered in the streets!", where's the proof? For people being hunted down in the streets like Hard Target or The Purge, you'd think someone would have got it on video by now. When pressed, it always comes down to some milquetoast "Some celebrity said she carries a gun into public toilets in case she gets attacked!" type claims, which is a big step down from far right death squads patrolling the streets.

It's funny because it's not a problem that the UK has, but it is a thing that happens in the USA. There's websites that record all the troon murders in the USA every year. It doesn't take a whole lot of study to recognise what the overwhelming majority of them have in common. Something like 95-99% of them are:

  • Southern
  • Black
  • Working as a prostitute, and
  • Killed by a john.
It's just one of those things that go along with the weirdly prehistoric attitude a lot of black people have towards being gay, see also Buck Breaking.

The thing is, people like Jim who go on at length about the trans sisters being murdered in the streets will never mention this, even though you'd think that an issue that disproportionately affected black people would be right in their wheelhouse. I can only think it's because twitter troondom is very, very white and none of them are actually at risk of being murdered. Really it's a sick kind of cachet that they're gaining and they don't actually want anything to change.
