Vox I don’t get it. the wallpaper?

 dh April 25, 2013 1:03 PM

He sure seems like the type of guy who posts pictures of rainbows and small animals to his livejournal.

 The Gray Man April 25, 2013 1:05 PM

The best part is knowing that he is proud of that shirt and logo.

What a sad, sad little manboob.

 jack April 25, 2013 1:06 PM

He actually looks a little slimmer in this photo. Maybe thats why it was posted? I suppose you have to just go with the flow and embrace your inner rabbit. Possibly some sort of Zen thing….

 Josh April 25, 2013 1:06 PM

If he’s trying to agree and amplify, he’s doing it wrong.

What are the odds he lets mrs scalzi use a purple saguaro on him?

 TheExpat April 25, 2013 1:07 PM

Vox I don’t get it. the wallpaper?

L for Lambda?

 Razoraid April 25, 2013 1:07 PM

What? I thought this was going to be a gardening piece. Little phallic crops and all that.

 Josh April 25, 2013 1:08 PM

Also, his shirt is at least one size too big.

 CurlytopApril 25, 2013 1:11 PM

A pic= 1000 words seems a bit inadequate here.

RINO April 25, 2013 1:13 PM

Is this real life?

 CynicAle April 25, 2013 1:16 PM

The wallpaper is from a video interview he did. Yes, he wore Gamma Rabbit to a press interview.

Much like Randall in Clerks 2 he is quixotically trying to take it back

 A. Man’s Man April 25, 2013 1:17 PM

He is sexy as hell.

 ScottApril 25, 2013 1:19 PM

I keep expecting this to get old and it isn’t. It’s getting more humorous.

 rycamorApril 25, 2013 1:21 PM

I believe this is called “owning it”.

 AnonymousApril 25, 2013 1:23 PM

My brain just broke.

 AlexanderApril 25, 2013 1:24 PM

Well damn…

 CheddarmanApril 25, 2013 1:27 PM

Also, his shirt is at least one size too big. – Josh

that would be camouflage for the man boobs

 Edward TrimnellApril 25, 2013 1:27 PM

Vox, he’s beaten you yet again!!!!!

He’s a middle-aged man wearing a pink, sexually ambiguous bunny design. But I bet *you* feel pretty silly right now, don’t you? He’s lording over you.

*When* will you learn to stop opposing him?

 PipApril 25, 2013 1:27 PM

Is this an example of “agree and amplify”?

 Outlaw XApril 25, 2013 1:29 PM

The wallpaper is from a video interview he did.

So the wallpaper is random? Hrmmm. My problem has always been I already know the subject and am always looking for the back story. Sorry.

 IM2L844April 25, 2013 1:33 PM

“It’s such an inspired idea…Everything is falling into place”

BWAHAHA….HAHAHA…HAHAHAHA!!!!

Thanks. Just when I really needed coffee to come blasting out of my nostrils, you come through like a real friend.

 Will BestApril 25, 2013 1:34 PM

I feel like he should be placed in a padded room so he doesn’t hurt himself.

 tzApril 25, 2013 1:36 PM

The wallpaper looks like an old English letter “L”, and maybe with the line in the middle. I hope he got a good pounding.

The caption might be appropriate since I don’t expect him to multiply.

 RetrenchedApril 25, 2013 1:40 PM

Every time I see that gay looking rabbit that song gets stuck in my head.

 LudovicApril 25, 2013 1:42 PM

You did say we are living in the post-parody era.

 patrick kellyApril 25, 2013 1:42 PM

“He sure seems like the type of guy who posts pictures of rainbows and small animals to his livejournal.”

Hey, I gotz bunnies and butterflies as my windoze wallpaper to balance out all the rage and dispair.

Whiskey also helps.

 JCclimberApril 25, 2013 1:42 PM

Vox,
can you modify the post a little? It doesn’t actually mention his name in the text, and the rabbits may not count it toward the total needed for their donations.

I mean, don’t you care about the gay black female orphan girls getting their maximum donations from the rabbits?

 MattApril 25, 2013 1:47 PM

Vox, this is just cruel. He’s practically an exhibit at a Victorian-era freak show, except his deformity is self-inflicted.

 tzApril 25, 2013 1:48 PM

I don’t think he would hurt either himself or others, at least not physically. That is the entire point.

Every so often a movie comes out that is so bad I want to root for the bad guys because the protagonist is just so stupid, annoying, and/or reckless that you want him to lose life, limb, or property as the storyline is screaming to heaving that such would be a just outcome.

I never thought life would imitate art in this case.

But I do remember the comments of those who know nothing of the controversy when they first see the image. “Creepy” was one of the responses.

Marvel nor DC comics has ever had a mutant whose superpower was to be a universal victim.

This is in your face “I want you to do something bad to me so I can whine and moan and complain”.

Masochism without the Eros, and at the level of the intellect.

We haven’t seen the back of the shirts, but it would not be inconsistent if there were letters asking “Kick Me!”.

Can you be a victim if you induce someone to engage? (I don’t mean the feminist postaldeconstructionism or whatever they call their insane rantings and ravings, I mean those who lack both insanity and imbecility).

 JCclimberApril 25, 2013 1:49 PM

Agree and amplify done all wrong.

The real problem is that agree and amplify only works if you have the alpha mindset already embedded in your bones. And the alpha mindset would ensure that no one would ever get the neckhole of a shirt like that over your head. Much less voluntarily wearing it for an interview.

I must admit that this is much more amusing to me than is properly christian. I suppose I should pity the poor deluded little gamma, but I seem to be lacking the proper amount of christian charity.

 TadApril 25, 2013 1:49 PM

I’d bang him.

 MattApril 25, 2013 1:49 PM

And his shirt is wildly oversized in the shoulders, which on his frame is an egregious inadvertent cultural gamma signifier even without the shirt’s actual content.

 RINOApril 25, 2013 1:51 PM

Also, his shirt is at least one size too big.

He’s likely anticipating iminent weight gain.

 VDApril 25, 2013 1:56 PM

He does look like he’s lost a chin. Clearly all the angst and stress has been good for him.

 IM2L844April 25, 2013 1:59 PM

Oh my. Just watched the video…I’d never seen him speak before. How can his wife not realize he’s closeted? Or is he out now?

 tzApril 25, 2013 1:59 PM

I must admit that this is much more amusing to me than is properly christian. I suppose I should pity the poor deluded little gamma, but I seem to be lacking the proper amount of christian charity.

This is like watching someone who is falling down drunk – it is very comical, yet is self-induced. Like alcoholism, he has to hit rock bottom for there to be any hope, but his codependent warren keeps affirming him and his esteem. Pity is not proper for those who voluntarily become whatever you find pitiable.

Realize that for him to be saved, something far more comic and painful will have to occur than has so far, but things appear to be progressing nicely.

 SaltApril 25, 2013 2:02 PM

And to think, he’s president of SFWA.

 Conan the Cimmerian, King of AquiloniaApril 25, 2013 2:04 PM

He is a “catcher” and not a “pitcher”, obviously.

 Outlaw XApril 25, 2013 2:04 PM

I’d bang him.

You can’t he has colon cancer and his butt has been sowed up. You could try banging his stoma. Jeeze you are sick, I can match your two pair with a full house.

 Conan the Cimmerian, King of AquiloniaApril 25, 2013 2:05 PM

I swear I saw him and his boyfriend on an episode of House Hunters that Mrs. Cimmerian was watching.

 BeauApril 25, 2013 2:05 PM

John Scalzi – the literary Honey Boo Boo.

Both he and Honey Boo Boo are products of the Female Imperative.

 ThalesApril 25, 2013 2:08 PM

Or is he out now?

He’s out now…whether he knows it or not…

 Conan the Cimmerian, King of AquiloniaApril 25, 2013 2:10 PM

He should just come out of the closet and stop with the lavender/sham marriage.

 Aeoli PeraApril 25, 2013 2:10 PM

CynicAle used “quixotic” more perspicaciously than he probably realized. Our generation needs a Cervantes to lampoon the genre of white knight fairy tales.

 LP 999/ElizaApril 25, 2013 2:11 PM

Recall, “Life is life”…what a hilarious pic, love it. Cutesy.

 JIApril 25, 2013 2:14 PM

That’s John Scalzi? How sad. Poor guy does not look happy.

 RobertTApril 25, 2013 2:17 PM

That’s not wallpaper, that’s hanging cloth. And he’s wearing a mic. So the entire layout is: he’s sitting in front of an audience, in front of a goofy background, wearing that shirt, giving a talk or responding to questions. Maybe the L stands for lesbian. It’s certainly not a Rotary club.

 FerdApril 25, 2013 2:21 PM

As Sheldon is wont to do…John is waiting, in his fav chair, for a time machine to come scoop him up and transport him to the future!!

 DanielApril 25, 2013 2:21 PM

Whoa.

Now you have taken to dressing him.

Not unlike how Hannibal Lecter might dress a “turkey.”

Apparently undressing him in public wasn’t good enough for you? Why do you do continue to force him into these corners?

McRapey is not your personal Barbie doll to manipulate and pose. He’s man, dammit, with feelings and at least a partially intact uterus.

It is interesting that he literally appears on the other side of the human division.

 Noah B.April 25, 2013 2:22 PM

Not quite enough creep factor. T-shirt needs a caption: “Are feeling Rapey too?”

 BungholioApril 25, 2013 2:24 PM

He looks like he was just propositioned.

 Henry GeorgeApril 25, 2013 2:30 PM

His expression says: “THIS is my royalty check for Redshirts? Hon, is Barnes & Noble still hiring baristas?”

 ScintanApril 25, 2013 2:33 PM

Seriously, how does he not see it?

 DanielApril 25, 2013 2:34 PM

Can you even begin to imagine the horror that his last victim felt, being intimately violated while staring at that half-naked groping cartoon rabbit the entire time?

Or, maybe, just maybe, she lucked out, and instead he left the shirt on.

 Conan the Cimmerian, King of AquiloniaApril 25, 2013 2:35 PM

Let me correct that for you Daniel,

Or, maybe, just maybe, he lucked out, and instead he left the shirt on.

 Protect the WarrenApril 25, 2013 2:38 PM

Now I understand what the wabbit is saying –

“STOP! Have you been tested lately?”

 Ah, manApril 25, 2013 2:40 PM

Everything is falling into place.

 DanielApril 25, 2013 2:40 PM

Huh, he said his victims were women. Is “women” a code word something? I can’t imagine him overpowering any males, except the smallest of children.

What are you suggesting?

 daddynicholApril 25, 2013 2:41 PM

From the mildly pained expression his face, I think he’s sitting on his adult baby potty training chair trying to pass a huge one.

Yeah, I know that pretty junior high, but I feel especially snarky today.

 PorkyApril 25, 2013 2:42 PM

I like him.

Then again I like colostomy bags.

 DanielApril 25, 2013 2:49 PM

“Hi!” writes Scalzi, “I’m a rapist. I’m one of those men who likes to force myself on women without their consent or desire and then batter them sexually.”

It is an interesting construct of the rape process. Scalzi does it in two phases:

1) forcing himself on women (without consent, as opposed to all those non-rapists who force themselves on women with consent)

2) battering them sexually

(one presumes step 3 is …profit!)

Nevertheless, is he incapable somehow of battering with the force he uses in step 1? It seems his rapes are exceedingly delicate affairs of violence, in that sexual battery follows sexual force, and is not part and parcel of it.

Perhaps he means “batter” in another sense.

For a rapist, he sure uses a lot of indirect language.

In the future, he should let the rabbit explain his rapes.

 A Real Scalzi Fan. Not Sigyn. Nope, not even close.April 25, 2013 2:52 PM

OMG this cyberbullying must stop at once! Can’t you see that he’s wasting away from the stress and misery? He can’t eat, can’t sleep, can’t rape…

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU RSHD’s!?

You probably all have really small penises, but you’ll never prove otherwise because I’d never sleep with any of you. Take THAT!!!

 Ginseng KhanApril 25, 2013 2:54 PM

Ah, the ol’ Vox/Scazli Feud.  We have to define what “winning” means.  If it means “appearing petty and obsessive” a point goes to Vox.  If it means “giving no indication that one is still aware his nemesis even exists” then a point to Scalzi.

 Mr. Zero Star Rating From Amazon.comApril 25, 2013 2:55 PM

Scalzi never rapes boys or black people. He’s a homophobic, racist dipshit.

 SigynApril 25, 2013 2:56 PM

…I think I hurt myself…

 MarkkuApril 25, 2013 2:57 PM

If it means “giving no indication that one is still aware his nemesis even exists” then a point to Scalzi. 

What a fascinating claim, considering that both gamma and rabbit are terms that are unique to Vox.

 Nite OwlApril 25, 2013 2:58 PM

Marvel nor DC comics has ever had a mutant whose superpower was to be a universal victim. – tz

I do remember the story in the “Watchmen” movie about the would-be villain demanding the heroes to punish him. Apparently, Rohrschach complies by tossing him down an elevator shaft.

 A. ManApril 25, 2013 3:01 PM

Let me get this straight. I look up this guy and it turns out he’s among the top 100 authors on Amazon. His latest Sci fi book is #5000 overall on amazon. A book that isn’t even in circulation yet ranks at 3000 on Amazon. Vox Day isn’t ranked among Amazon’s best selling authors and his latest book comes in ranked just below 900,000.

So, he’s ranks and ladders and levels above Vox Day in their chosen profession and genre in terms of success and popularity and he’s being mocked?

How interesting.

 Ah, manApril 25, 2013 3:02 PM

” If it means “giving no indication that one is still aware his nemesis even exists” then a point to Scalzi”

“Giving no indication”? Which, of course, is why in interviews he wears a t shirt which exists solely because of the dustup between him and VD.

 MarkkuApril 25, 2013 3:02 PM

A. Man: Couldn’t help but notice that the saddled dinosaur picture you were bitching about the other day was uploaded by one John Scalzi. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

 A. ManApril 25, 2013 3:04 PM

“”Giving no indication”? Which, of course, is why in interviews he wears a t shirt which exists solely because of the dustup between him and VD.”

It looks to me like he’s having his own fun with Vox Day and the one dong the real mocking. It is after all a shot of him being interviewed by the LA Times, whereas Vox Day is chirping on about the man by invitation of … well, his own blog.

I think Scalzi wins.

 Nite OwlApril 25, 2013 3:04 PM

Closest thing I could find inside a minute of searching.

 AnonymousApril 25, 2013 3:07 PM

“Couldn’t help but notice that the saddled dinosaur picture you were bitching about the other day was uploaded by one John Scalzi. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.”

The Image You've Slogged Through the Whole Set to See

 MorkApril 25, 2013 3:08 PM

The gayest photo yet?

Gamma Uke!

 DanielApril 25, 2013 3:10 PM

Repeated without comment:
A. Man
It looks to me like he’s having his own fun with Vox Day and the one dong the real mocking. 

++++

Also:

If it means “giving no indication that one is still aware his nemesis even exists” then a point to Scalzi.

Way to go, Russian judge. I think wearing message apparel that the nemesis psychically designed in honor of Scalzi’s crimes against women is “no indication” then I agree with you.

John Scalzi is Nadia Comaneci.

 SigynApril 25, 2013 3:13 PM

So, he’s ranks and ladders and levels above Vox Day in their chosen profession and genre in terms of success and popularity and he’s being mocked? 

Judge a man’s worth by his popularity. Way to go, A. Rabbit!

…By the way, doesn’t this mean that you’re a COMPLETE loser here, since nobody likes you?

 bwApril 25, 2013 3:13 PM

If a face/body could sink a thousand ships..

 anon123April 25, 2013 3:14 PM

In the words of another great rabbit, “what a maroon!”

The American Society of Journalists and Authors schedules its annual conference in New York City each spring.  This year, as part of its invited panel, Victoria Strauss and Richard White of Writer Beware have been invited to serve as keynote panelists.

According to the Write Agenda, these two individuals have made false reports and claims about their competitors on their blogs, while hiding the fact that their own attorney was under investigation in Illinois for years, and subsequently suspended from practicing law for defrauding the estate of John Steinbeck.

At over 200 dollars a person for each day of the session, the Write Agenda cautions people seeking to find professional contacts at the seminar to reconsider how they spend their hard-earned money on an expensive day traveling to and from Manhattan, and listening to reports that are not an accurate portrayal of the business.

The ASJA has responded to the Write Agenda, stating that the conference will continue exactly as planned.

A good journalist checks his/her facts, and does not depend completely  on sources which have a conflict of interest or which may not be honest and reliable.

2013 SFWA ELECTION COVERAGE: You Have to Love Theodore Beale . . . Speaking the Truth

“As a result of my campaign for SFWA president, I have spent the last two months in the bowels of the SFWA forums. What I have seen is that the writers who make up the SF/F community are, to an almost unbelievable extent, delusional.  They genuinely believe they are faster when they have been winning races because a vast quantity of other runners have been barred from even lining up in the blocks to run against them.  They genuinely believe that they are special beings with a superior morality, and at the same time, assert that their ideological views are shared by all the decent members of civil society. And they are very nasty pieces of work, bitter from their long experience of social exclusion and their lowly positions on the socio-sexual totem pole.  They are full of hatred themselves, which is why they see hate in even the most genuine and harmless differences of opinion.

Most of all, they have no ability to conceive of the mere possibility of separating the personal from the political. They attempt to destroy those who disagree with them or cause them to suffer embarrassment; recall that McRapey’s charity campaign wasn’t an attempt to stop me from trolling his blog or to advance any racist, sexist, or homophobic causes, it was to try to stop me from simply mentioning him because I dared to directly quote him and taunt him for his eminently tauntable words. I did nothing more than do to him what he prides himself on doing to others; you all know what resulted from that.

Nearly two decades ago, a member of the SFWA told me that the battles within science fiction were so bitter because the stakes were so small. But I think he was wrong. It’s more than that. The battles are so bitter because SF/F is largely comprised of gamma males and unattractive women who are very bitter people.  They are openly bitter about their lots in life. They are deeply angry with the world as they have experienced it. The books they write, for the most part, are their wish fulfillment fantasies, places where they finally have the chance to say what they didn’t have the wit to say when it mattered and be the people they couldn’t manage to become in real life. This is why, despite being technically more proficient in some ways, their work is so observably inferior to the science fiction and fantasy of earlier ages that concerned itself with ideas of more grandeur and societal import than the retro-adolescent daydreams of socio-sexually unsuccessful former junior high school students.

I commend Sarah for her graciousness in attempting to warn those who have repeatedly done their best to professionally shun her and undermine her career. But I can tell her that it will not work; I attempted to do something similar in my current campaign for SFWA President. But my warnings about the coming collapse of the traditional professional publishing business of SF/F – which you will note preceded the failure of Night Shade Books – was met with little more than the usual sneers and rabbits shrieking ‘not-rabbit, not-rabbit’!”

“For those who are arriving late to all this, the Gamma Rabbit character is a mockery of the label that rightwing blogger Vox Day assigned to Scalzi a few weeks ago. On the surface the illustration is merely a satirical rebuttal; but things are never so straightforward where John Scalzi is concerned.John’s deeper purposes become clear when one reads the blog post that accompanies the illustration. For Gamma Rabbit is a Trojan Bunny of sorts, a distracting vehicle that masks even more self-aggrandizement and clever evasion on the sci-fi author’s part:

 Yes, Gamma Rabbit, who likes people as they are, fears no one no matter how they live their lives, and who is comfortable with himself and his own personal values of kindness, tolerance and diversity. Sure, there are some who look down on him and his ways, but you know what? Gamma Rabbit knows that those people are kooky, silly, wacky racist sexist homophobic dipshits…”


Outgoing SFWA President, John Scalzi, continues to demonstrate his childish behavior and disdain for 2013 SFWA Presidential Candidate, Theodore Beale. Start here to see what we are referring to. Yes, he really did register “GammaRabbit.com.” See here and/or below:

8

Suffice to say, another embarrassment for the SFWA . . .  Grow up Scalzi. Please vote for Theodore Beale for SFWA President!

Anonymous sources have indicated to The Write Agenda™ that the voting in the 2013 election has reached a level that the SFWA hasn’t seen in decades. Stay tuned for the results. This seems to be indicative of the relative silence on the election by its current President (John Scalzi), Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware™. However, it’s interesting to note that Victoria Strauss and 2013 SFWA Presidential Candidate, Steven Gould, are hooking up. Hey Vicky! Where’s your invitation to the other 2013 SFWA Candidate . . .  Theodore Beale? Surely you’re not bias are you? That’s right, you don’t like Theodore Beale.

Mr. IRS. The SFWA (a non-profit organization)  provides Writer Beware™ with a “budget.” Yet, Victoria Strauss and Ann “A.C.” Crispin continue to use the site to promote themselves and their books? INUREMENT?

In response to our posting (Remove the Writer Beware™ Panelists, Victoria Strauss & Richard C. White, From the 2013 ASJA Annual Writers Conference), Randy Dotinga, Chair, ASJA 2013, in spite of the fact that we proved that  Writer Beware™ selectively reports publishing scandals (here), proved that Victoria Strauss and Writer Beware™ never established that there was an “investigation” against American Book Publishing (here), illustrated that Victoria Strauss failed to show respect for the 2013 SFWA candidates (here), illustrated that Victoria Strauss was a non-vindicated defendant (only Wikipedia was vindicated . . . the judge left the door open to re-litigate with the remaining defendants) in the Bauer vs. Glatzer case (here), demonstrated Victoria Strauss’ propensity to use the “F-word” (here), and demonstrated how Victoria Strauss stole the First Annual Independent Blogger Award at the 2012 BEA Convention (here) had this response to our posting:
