Maddux steps out of his echo chamber to exchange ideas with someone who claims to be a sane liberal. What transpires is a discussion that veers into nearly every political territory you can imagine.

*RTS: BizarroCon Special Report*

The thing about social justice warriors is, they ALWAYS double down. So when you catch them lying, even when you provide irrefutable facts, they continue to lie and make themselves look ever more foolish and irrational.

And so, Kevin and Jeremy bring to you this BizarroCon Special Report. It’s only just been made clear to us that the actual private messages between the male and female authors from the BizarroCon 2016 controversy have been made public by the male author accused of the harassment and stalking of the female author. Since he chose to make the conversation public, we feel comfortable sharing it here, with his and the female author’s identities hidden as per the RTS policy.

Below, we have provided screenshots of those conversations, plus famous author Brian Keene’s public assertions that he witnessed the alleged harassment of the female author at the convention.

This special edition of the READING TO STRANGERS podcast goes into further detail about the controversy and our guesses as to why the SJWs in the Bizarro community would call on Brian Keene to misinterpret the incident. And further, why he would choose to go along with the lie.

The screenshots:

Bizarrocon 2016 was held from November 17th-20th 2016.

As you can see from the screenshot below of the private conversation between the male and the female authors at the center of the controversy, they were STILL on pleasant speaking terms on November 24th, FOUR DAYS after the convention ended. The female author even agreed to meet the male author again at a future public event. There was no stalking nor any harassment at the convention. This is painfully clear.

And yet here, Brian Keene maintains that he witnessed harassment at the BizarroCon event held from 11/17/16-11/20/16, which clearly had yet to occur as the entirety of the female author’s complaints come AFTER 11/24/2016 once the male author began to post public blogs confessing his crush on her and the interactions they’d had at the convention.

The controversy erupted after the male author first refused to remove the blogs, then eventually did so and apologized for any embarrassment caused. As with all instances of social justice witch hunting, this apology did NOT remove his ban from the convention, nor did it stop accusations of harassment and stalking.

With the proof and facts clear as day, the only remaining question is, why is Brian Keene lying?

You Might Be A Social Justice Bizarro If…

There seems to be some confusion among my fellow genre fiction writers about what exactly constitutes insane social justice behavior, so I’ve created this handy guide to show you just what kind of batshit crazy, group-think type behavior falls into the category of cunty individual that I’ll forever be calling The Social Justice Bizarro.

Please keep in mind, this is not an exhaustive list. There are MANY more examples of thought policing, cyber bullying, and generally oppressive behavior that will get you lumped into the SJB category. This is just a “greatest hits” list, if you will.

1. If you clicked on this link out of a knee jerk reaction of anger and denial, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

2. If you’re a white person who has ever called another white person a “white person” as a pejorative, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

3. If you believe a fellow writer guilty of a crime like STALKING or HARASSMENT without said writer ever being charged with or convicted of said crime, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

4. If you hate men, constantly criticize men on the internet, write feminist literature, exclude men from your publishing house, then hide behind “Feminism is about equality,” you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

5. If you’ve ever participated in, gawked at for your own entertainment, shared the links for the purpose of, or otherwise enabled a social media witch hunt of any kind, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

6. If you’ve ever publicly called for, celebrated, or otherwise encouraged the removal of art from the marketplace that you personally deem objectionable, E.G. a flag, a book, a movie, or a music recording, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

7. If you attack one religion through fictional parody, criticism, blatant and thorough blasphemy or other means of discounting and discrediting it but find this exact same behavior objectionable when attributed to another religion, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

8. If you’ve ever used the terms racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and transphobia together like some kind of identity politics button mashing video game attack combo, you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

9. If you celebrate the act of turning your social and political enemies gay in fiction just for the purpose of seeing them humiliated, then you might be (actually homophobic) a Social Justice Bizarro.

10. If you take even the slightest criticism of the genre, the leadership of the genre, the online behavior of the genre community or any other type of constructive debate as hostile and immediately move to discredit and excommunicate the individual expressing the criticism, you might belong to a cult. And you might be a Social Justice Bizarro.

Don’t be a Social Justice Bizarro.
