#CancelCulture Came for Sonic

You read it right. Sonic the Hedgehog, our little blue friend, has been targeted by a barrage of outrage on Twitter. A mob of angry social justice warriors charged him with the crime of racism, and immediately demanded action!

But why? What did Sonic do?

The real question is what didn’t he do?

They Want These BANNED!

With depictions of extreme graphic violence, moments of  sexual assault, and horror targeted towards children, I was worried about what would happen when Deadman’s Tome published Inappropriate Literature.

Scary Devil Nun

The SJW Puritan police have come after me before — follow me on Twitter @mrdeadmandt if you don’t believe me — back when Deadman’s Tome published Psycho Holiday. Why was #cancelculture after me? Because I used the word Psycho in a title of a, wait for it, a horror anthology. If we can’t use phrases like psycho and demented in horror then we’ve reached a new low of pathetic virtue signalling.

When Deadman’s Tome released Inappropriate Literature, we received complaints from a few butt hurt snowflakes. All of which came from Twitter, the SJW cesspool, but that’s not surprising. They accused me of enabling or encouraging violent acts towards women and children. Oh my God, would somebody please think of the precious fictional women and children?

Pathetic complaints fallen on deaf ears, because I don’t give a damn.

I think it is this reason why Matt Scott trusted Deadman’s Tome with Darkness Calling. Darkness Calling takes the inappropriate and offensive material in Inappropriate Literature and cranks it up to no-fucks-given.

Now, how long will it take until they keyboard warriors come out with their oh so serious complaints?

What’s the Deal with ChiZine Publications?

 

ChiZine publications has established a name and reputation in the horror writing community, but it appears that not all is well. According to various sources, ChiZine has problems paying their authors. Now, I totally understand that mistakes will be made from time-to-time, but apparently when authors approach them about a lack of payment ChiZine brushes them off. That’s never a good thing.

I’ve reached out to ChiZine to ask for their side of the story and have yet to hear anything. I consider myself neutral in this in that all I want is for the parties involved to come to mutual terms and for the publishing house to do better.

Now, other authors have come out to accuse ChiZine, either directly or by proxy, of racism, sexual harassment, and petty behavior. Before you jump to conclusions, please watch the video where I go through the other accusations.

What do you think about this? I’m not a fan of #CancelCulture and do not want people to go after ChiZine. What I would like is for use to calm and rational about this, approach the situation objectively and with redemption as a goal.
