We knew they lost their balls in the aftermath of dickwolves 11 years ago but now they are openly licking the boot that is stamping on their face.

It won't help of course, since they are white and male and straight, the beast they are futilely attempting to appease will eventually turn its rapacious jaws on them. One crack in the eggshells they are walking on and dickwolves will be prosecuted all over again. And with it anything else in their public profile that was previously considered off-color and is now a capital offense.

In a way it is our fault. Post-dickwolves we failed to mount a proper defense to the faux-outrage assault. At the time, they probably looked around and saw nothing but enemies everywhere they turned. In their mind surrender, bargaining, and pleading for mercy was probably rationalized as their best bad option. We didn't have the awareness of the magnitude of the problem that gamergate uncovered. And we didn't realize we could meaningfully push back, show support, and welcome them if they were willing to join us.

The PA guys are wrong and I won't support them, but they do have my sympathy. Tycho failed as a father and now has an it for a son. It's not too surprising they can't see straight when they've surrounded themselves (and their children) with demons.

They're material got me through some rough patches. I pray someone will do the same for them.

What happened with Tycho's kid?

The boy's autistic and wants to be a 'they.' Tycho obliged. Now Tycho only uses plural pronouns for other people. Tycho and Straub did a 1P TTRPG session at the last PAX that was borderline incomprehensible because everyone was 'they.'

If only Mr. Period were around to have a word with him.

How sad. Any link?

From what I had read over the years, it seems like Tycho in particular had a real rough relationship with his father who was a real man's man (and IIRC conservative Christian). Kind of like Spoony if anyone followed that shitshow...

I always had the impression that both Gabe and Tycho were in way over their heads with their kids, and WAY over compensating.

As someone who is clearly spending plenty of time reading KiA/KiA2/etc, and playing some vidya, though not as many as I used to, I limit the shit out of what my kids can play, how much they can play, and no fucking way are they on social media. That day will come eventually, but for now, let kids be kids... Shit is cancer for youth.

Every. Single. Time.

It's not even surprising anymore. Just saddening because that group is really vulnerable to the troon groomers. Ask me how I know.

They should have taken the child to a non corrupt psychologist that will provide advice for deradicalization, even if it meant having to search outside the country.

That's honestly heartbreaking.

Oh god. I haven't read them in months. Guess it is going to stay that way.

I’m surprised he let it come to that considered how based they had been in the past. A lot of their PA reality thing was them being dicks and being relatively based back in the day. Comic stopped being funny a while back, but I still liked those guys back in the day. Met them a number of times and they were always really nice to fans that weren’t dicks.

True, but then again how could we? Back then we were fighting what we thought were the last vestiges of the culture war against Jack Thompson and co., we had no way of knowing we were already in another against the far left. (Hell, a lot of us weren't even in college yet) We were still 4 years out from that and even then it still took another few years for us to realize it. And even then some of us (read: kia1-type people) still haven't gotten the hint.

... "dickwolves"?

Sounds like some spicy drama.

Yep. It was.

That's a wild ride. Mike's eventual conclusion, that he never should've removed the merch or "engaged" was correct.

If you show any weakness these screeching trannies go for the throat.

I remember dying at the response comic they posted: https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2010/08/13
