Last year, the Sad Puppies and the even more militant Rabid Puppies tried to make a statement that the current people managing the Hugo awards are a left-leaning clique that nominate one another as some kind of weird self-pleasuring ritual. So, what they did was to marshal the SFWA masses (who normally had better things to do and let the dozen or so “serious” members to do all the nomination stuff) to nominate books that they felt would be better candidates for the Hugo awards, and then vote to determine the winners. The Sad Puppies folks made a pretty convincing case – to me – that they nominated books without considering the political leanings of those authors, but the powers-that-be at SFWA saw the whole thing as an encroachment of sexist, misogynist, whatever-ist unwashed masses and ended up marshaling their own troops to basically nuke the whole thing by not having winners in the categories that the Puppy-nominated titles and authors were winning out in.

By doing so, they played right into the hands of the Puppy organizers, who claimed all along that those Hugo award people don’t care about the awards; for all their claims of “fairness”, they are more concerned about playing all those “blow air up my ass and I like it” games that invariably plague every entity managed by people who do the work for free. It makes sense – a lot of times, the very ones who commit time to do these things are either passionate crusaders or, unfortunately far too common, egomaniacs who seek validation by amassing supporters and what not while attaching themselves to some purported altruistic or “greater good” cause. See also: way too many charity organisations, Wikipedia, your average Reddit sub mods, et cetera.

So, this year. The nominations are gorgeous, as the more militant Rabid Puppies decided to just nuke things along with the people in charge. Hence, dinosaur butt sex purveyor Chuck Tingle can now proudly call himself a Hugo-nominated author. Rabid Puppy boss and SFWA’s archenemy, Vox Day, has his entertaining but agenda-driven scree against social justice warriors shortlisted. A My Little Pony episode in the TV show category. See here if you wish to gawk at the beauty of it all, although I have to warn you: it’s nowhere as tainted and corrupted as the folks in various outlets claim.

I have no horse in this race, but my goodness, I really wish Chuck Tingle will bag it, as horny gay dinosaurs should fit right in in an entity like SFWA which loves its identity politics. Give those gay dinosaur-kins a chance – they too make up a spectrum of our beautifully diverse humanity, after all. If I identify as a trans human raptor, who is anyone to deny me the right to copulate with and marry another raptor without the fear of shame and persecution?

Now, how about tentacle romances for RITA shortlists in 2017?
