Nintendo made a virtual people simulation game-toy-thingy.
In the simulation, sometimes two people get married.
But not if they are the same sex.
Explaining the brouhaha that resulted, Christian Nutt (?) said:
Things came to their inevitable head this week when Nintendo released an incredibly tone deaf statement to the Associated Press: “Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of ‘Tomodachi Life.’ The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation. We hope that all of our fans will see that ‘Tomodachi Life’ was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary.”
The problem is that this option does not exist. As Patrick Klepek put it, “I hope Nintendo knows that excluding gay relationships is, in fact, a form of social commentary. It’s inherently political.”
Not trying to provide commentary? This option does not exist. It’s inherently political to not include highly controversial sexual politics in a children’s game. It’s rated E for Everyone, so, it’s (among other things) a children’s game.
Ladies and gentlemen, you have been served notice. If you refuse to make a statement on something, this is inherently political. If you go to the restaurant and order a burger without endorsing the gay agenda, this is inherently political. One thing, and one thing alone will give you one moment of peace from the tittering gaggle of ironically self-righteous impuritans: enthusiastic endorsement of their constantly shifting and contradictory ‘morality’ even as they shove you under a bus.
And they will shove you under a bus. Progressives eat their own.
They have declared war. Everyone not for them, and many people who are for them, are hereby to be considered against them. If you are truly neutral on any point in the current progressive catechism, you are a racist, sexist, homophobe. They can and will apply this label even to a black lesbian if, for instance, she decides to remain celibate because her inclinations are against her religion.
They will not see the irony.
Lads and lasses, the impuritans have declared everyone the bad guys.
