The Breitbart contributor Milo Yiannapoulous wrote
about how SJW-style feminism has caused damage to society. Not only does he bring up why the Gamergate campaign was launched, he also notes how comicdom was no exception:
Consider the GamerGate controversy, where gamers fought back against the nannying, hectoring feelings police and were branded “harassers” and “misogynists.” It’s also happened in comics: if you go to an online comics forum and talk about anything but how stunning and brave the new SJW storylines are, you’ll get the boot.
This reminds me that I once saw a leading webmaster for CBR throwing somebody out because he loathed the guy's suggesting a Gamergate style campaign for comic books. It's not hard to guess why. As journalists, CBR's owners must feel rubbed the wrong way whenever somebody points out how the press can be dishonest. Yet they must wonder why their audiences are declining. If the press cannot admit their capability of making mistakes, then they can't be surprised. Now, the little audience they have left are these SJW types who probably don't even read a lot of the mainstream products they seek to devastate, and they do nothing to distance themselves from a bad crowd. That's how and why comicdom went downhill all these years.
