GenCon has announced such things as the makeup of its industry panels (now batting for gender parity with 13 women and 12 men with Industry Insider status) and its Guest of Honor this year (Mike Pondsmith of Cyberpunk 2020, Castle Falkenstein and Mekton fame). It’s 2016, so obviously a faction of angry gamers are throwing a fit about how there’s suddenly all this diversity up in their face and they can’t pretend that the industry is a white boys’ club any more.
I’ve written previously about how the RPGPundit, AKA Kasimir Urbanski, has gone firmly off the deep end of late, with his web forum descending into the sort of GamerGatey SJW-baiting hellhole it had always been semi-threatening to turn into at that. So I was amused to see in the Washington Post‘s article on this quoting one of his tweets on the subject, mostly because of the massive irony involved in the tweet. If anyone in gaming justifies the tag of “douchebag with delusions of significance”, it’s Pundit.
