Accept, Don't Glorify.
So, sections of the geek community have expressed displeasure at the invasion of identity politics into their communities. The activists, with the aid of the establishments, have responded with the usual slew of buzzwords and accusations. Bigot, gatekeeper, misogynist, same rubbish for the last ten years or so. Now, most *reasonable* people know this is not true. If any community welcomes freaks and weirdos, it's us geeks. After listening to various perspectives of the geeks who have spoken out against this, the moderate representatives of the alphabet people as well as the deranged contradictory reasoning of the SJW types, I had a moment of clarity. The geek community, if my own views as well as that of my peers are anything to go by, have ZERO problem with representation. We have a problem with IP appropriation and demonizing of our demographic, the communities that kept these IPs alive for the SJWs to swoop in, violate and drive us out. Let's call a spade a spade.
