Overwatch is trying to be even more gay.

PC Gamer said:
Blizzard will hold an Overwatch 2(opens in new tab) tournament for underrepresented genders starting in late October.

Registration for the Overwatch 2 Challengers Cup is open to any underrepresented genders as decided by Blizzard through a verification system. In the blog post, Blizzard specifically notes that the tournament is open but not limited to "transgender, non-binary, genderfluid," and women participants.

To register, you have to join the Discord server and then fill out a form that requires you to submit your name, Battle.net account, Discord account, social media links, and a photo of yourself to complete it. "One's appearance and gender expression has no contingency on your application, and this step is to solely assign an individual to your application," the form reads.
This game is literally saving lives... or something.

Stuff a cucumber down your pants, call yourself Bettina or whatever, demand they refer to you as she/her, act like a male feminist, and generally make a mockery out of their little event.

The saddest part is, you don't even need to do that. They will do it all on their own.

The fuck you call that station, motherfucker?

Actually, Lower Decks is... anti-woke.

The entire first two seasons are a long form deconstruction of the Mary Sue and that trend continues in the third. I'm not even kidding. In the first few episodes they set up Mariner as a classic SJ-Sue. She's minority ethnically and a woman, she's portrayed at being better at things then the men immediately around her and beloved by everyone and allowed to get away with it all...

...and then after a few episodes setting that up the show begins to deconstruct Mariner HARD. She gets called out more and more by those around her for her antics, her attitude is shown to be destructive and her actions have consequences to the point where, in Season 3, she's been assigned to have her entire career and actions under the scrutiny of... the White Male Human First Officer who's a clear Kirk expy, and the show is treating this as not just legitimate consequences of her actions, but as an actively good thing that is helping her grow as a person.

It's actually rather shocking to watch half the time, but is refreshing because Lower Decks actually both loves Star Trek (I mean, seriously the joke in the clip works BECAUSE it pulls on nostalgia and the fandom love of DS9 while also also poking gentle fun at how long and, honestly kinda boring, the DS9 opening credits were), but also has a good sense of humor and definitely figured out that it wants to be a balanced show about it all.

LD is simultaneously a parody and a product made by people who actually like Old Trek (pre-Kurtzman era).

Personal fan theory: Mariner is the lovechild of Les Buenamigo. Pulling out the color swatches, Mariner is paler than either of her parents. Her mother lives on a space ship and her father (on paper) has a desk job, so tans are unlikely. Plus the whole "not using her official last name" thing would make more sense if she was in rebellion about her parents being cheating scumbags.

Star Wars has bent the knee to the Trumptards. This will kill people.


Bout to say... Just because Disney purchased X-Men now doesn't mean they need to put X's on everything.

I've seen people pronounce that dumbass term as "Latin X", but I always read it as "Latinx", like lynx.

I find it hilarious that Leftoids are the ones using that term constantly, and the people they're calling Latinx are saying they're fucking stupid at best, just racist at worst.

Seeing the Lefties' brains dribble out their ears over this is hilarious.

It's because the Leftoids don't know how different languages work even though they preach 'diversity'. They think everything will conform to their own isolated world view.

I'm reminded of all the morons who somehow complain that anime and Japanese games don't have enough diversity and are too full of white people.

Can we make it quick instead? The slower it takes to die the longer we have to listen to it.
In this scenario, all discussions of Disney/Marvel/Star Wars talk and the impacts of being a fan would be banned from all platforms.

"Latinx" is a stupid initiative pushed by white saviors and their orbiters in an attempt to be "inclusive." Romance languages, including Spanish, have masculine and feminine words, and there's no mixing them. Many Hispanics/Latinos I know agree the term is idiotic.

The woketardos of San Diego Comic Con also tried this "replace o with x" shit with Filipinos and the Filipino grammar hammer came down on them. SDCC were called idiots because "Pilipino" is already gender neutral in the Filipino language (Filipina is just used in English) and Filipino doesn't have the letter X in our alphabet. About the only ones who sided with the woketards are the Chick-Fil-Ams (that be a derogative term we use for second-gen and lower Filipino-Americans) who are usually also woketards anyways.
