Interesting article on how "Politically Correct" sci-fi has evolved. More importantly, where it is going in the future.

Seems like "everyone's" opinion is more important than the story itself.

Guess I should take a selfie and post it to #my opinion matters to the world somehow...  :-?

Webbie, thanks for posting this essay on the Hugos and the "Puppies." I have seen references to it elsewhere but could not quite figure out what it was about. The essay makes it clear, and "Gamergate" is a good term.

Sad to say, I have noticed there is no award/contest that cannot be rigged or fixed. We'll have to watch which way the Hugos go this year to see who wins the shoving match.
