Oh shit. Not ANOTHER article reminding me that GAMERS exist. I'm so sick of these gamers constantly raping people, school shooting, cyber raping, and cyber school shooting.

Anyone remember what the world was like before gamers?

JF Sargent is the new Nicholas Pell.

Or was he always this smug before Mega Hipster showed up?

He always was. Just look at him calling a video game sexist because a character cried.

Don't forget schooling people in shooting, rape-shooting, shoot-raping, and schooling people in those things.

That's not a comment on the article by the way. I'm not touching that with a ten-foot pole or John Mayer's probably less than ten-foot white supremacist dick (which is unrelated to the article but was on my mind at the time I started writing this). I just felt like those items would be thematically approrpiate additions to your list.

On an unrelated note:

So, he's reverting back to how he was before? What happened to this version of JF Sargent?

I'm reasonably certain not being attracted to black chicks doesn't make you a racist, regardless of what he says about his dick being a white supremacist.

#6 Political correctness = diversity, because fuck you.
#5 Let me show you a cartoon and proceed to interpret it the exact opposite way it was intended
#4 We used to have authorities doing the censoring, we kinda miss that so we're doing it ourselves now and that's awesome
#3 Look, a tweet by some random chic didn't get as many mentions. Let's ignore all the mainstream outlets who said the exact same thing over and over until we made a guy cave into the pressure, but let's remember that his compliance proves we are the righteous ones.
#2 Cherry-picked stats, and this is just an excuse to shit on gamers
#1 What's the biggest strawman we can think of? the confederate flag! let's make it all about that and somehow all of our previously stated poor arguments will become valid... somehow.

This is exactly the kind of bullshit I was expecting from JF Sargent, but I was still disappointed anyway.

Cracked is a business, and pumping out an article every so often with the intent to bait and insult a large demographic -- usually gamers -- is an easy way to get loads and loads of clicks. I believe Sargent, and some of his ilk like McKinney, still have the capacity to write great stuff (I bring up McKinney because his science articles were some of my favorites when I was still a regular Cracked reader), but those talents are wasted on the clickbait model.

As for the article itself, I don't have the will to get upset about this anymore. It was worth it back when the overblown social justice slant was an anomaly, but it's such a regular thing now that I just have to shake my head and move on.

Dude, if he is anything in real life like he is in his writing, I'm willing to bet you have to go back a long, long way to find the first person who punched him in his smug face.

I'm probably mistaken, but isn't Sargent the one who pretty much grew up as a trust fund baby? I know it's not really important, just curious.

Oh yeah, it also really bugged me the way he put "candidate" before Trump's name. I get that the Cracked staff has a problem with him, but he's just as much a candidate for the office of President as any of the others in both parties.

I agree, but damn do I love that description. It just makes me giggle. I'd like to think his condoms look like little Klan robes.

There's an idea! I bet we could make some sweet cash marketing those in all those places in the south. Stamp a confederate flag on the box and we're golden.

It's only a matter of teaching them how to use condoms, and that you need to wear them even if it's your sister.
