I'll just leave this here.....

A lot of offended people have decided to boycott Furpocalypse, and there are some alt-right people cheering their stupid decision.

Confirmed for cringy /r/The_Donald/ meetup. It'll be the next big disaster con.

No.3476260

It's been a shit con since it started as the revived corpse of Furfright a few years ago. Probably for the best it dies a poor PR death, the area has more than enough smaller cons picking up steam to take over it's time frame.

(looks at the note)
Wait, people's issue with this is that their theme is a haunted asylum? Pfft. I'm pretty sure the public in general is more interested in the fucked up past of some places than those that are staunchly against it.

But I'll be curious to see just how much attendance drops. I'm guessing, not much. Lotsa people can speak up against it, but plenty weren't going anyways, and many will protest openly but go anyways. Place your bets, people.

I don't see what these furries are so butthurt about, their mental illnesses are self diagnosed, after all.

for such a large and populous state, why is there no major con in Florida? Miami or Tampa, or even god forbid Orlando seem ripe for one but none exist

>why is there no major con in Florida?

Megaplex is a thing. Not quite a huge con but it's getting larger each year. The majority of activity is locally organized, at least in Northeast/Jacksonville with weekly events, and for a big con, FWA is within driving distance for most.

I'm super local to this con and saw the original drama that started months ago when they announced the theme. Originally folks weren't upset over the theme persay, but rather that the badge levels were things like 'Electroshock technician' or 'lobotomy director', which was pretty cringey. The con completely blew off people more politely bringing up that aspect being offputting for many back in May. It's ONLY drama now because people kept pushing for a statement from the con, or just yelling 'the theme stinks' too much, and banning someone for it.

They should have just kept ignoring it, and it would have just blown over like that time FWA made a Oriental themed year..and never changed a damn thing, but people still love that con.

Furries are also a shitty consumer base that is still easily milked with the right approach.

Co chair tweeted this on privet right before banning the dumb shit who kept asking if they wanted to address the theme+earlier drama...high staff is both amazing, but also...this is not how to keep a struggling con going by doubling down..

No, it's exactly how you do it. Any backing down and any apologizing will not cause the boycotting customers to go after all, so why capitulate?

It's in the fucking bullet points for power politics, and rules for radicals. I mean, holy shit, who are these people taking offense for? Most of those affected by Asylums like those being parodied by the event are FUCKING DEAD.

I swear, you SJW types, you'd take offense for mosquitos if you thought it would make you look good.

The SJW are boycotting ? Well that's good for the congoers. No overly sensitive whinny bitch walking around in the con and spoiling the fun.

aren't you cunts the types who go "lol if u dont like it boycott"

they aren't responding to the market, therefor should fail. why do I have to explain capitalism to you right wing virtue signalers

No.3476384

furry sjws and soccermoms ruin things just because of some bullshit. ive suffered at the hands of institutions but even so i still enjoy sadist sexual fantasies like medical and such so why let my experience ruin an otherwise awesome theme. had i a fursuit and chemist smock id play the mad doctor role and go.

No.3476390

>>3476383

I can't count how many products and things have bombed spectacularly at least partially because they made the mistake of thinking that whiny SJWs were their "market" and caved into their demands.

Would you fuckers kindly stop butting into products you have no actual interest in purchasing? WTF would SJWs know about capitalism anyways, besides their extensive experience in trolling it?

they aren't responding to the market, therefor should fail
See, this isn't always the case. Sometimes the market responds to them. Get em wrapped around their little finger. Speaking of which, don't you have an iPhone X you need to go wait in line for?

You're overestimating how many outraged jockeys there are and how many people that were intending to go will now not go. Just like you thought Hillary had it in the bag.

It's like back when moral guardian Christian groups cried over every little thing that they didn't like, even if they knew fuck-all about the property they were so mad at.

Or did that not happen in your "only liberals do bad shit" revisionist history mindset?

Pst. I'm a dirty centrist that started as an Obama voter and became a Trump voter. As an atheist, I'm well aware of Christian bullshit. I grew up with manhunt, and mortal kombat. I was there for the years the ESRB became a thing. I had a goddamn commodore 64.

I don't like it when any of those moral guardians want to stick their hand in front of my eyes and cry "This is sick! You shouldn't see it!"

You seem to have an idea that only republicans are christians. The US is a christian nation through and through, so there's plenty of those people in both parties. Trying to police social mores through the federal government however is patently liberal politics: what walks like a duck and talks like a duck is probably a duck.

The conservatives do the same thing on the community level, because they aren't trying to "save" everyone - just themselves.
