The Phases Of A Geeker Gate

Recently, the gentleman who heads World Class Bullshitters called for a list that outlined the phases in Geeker Gates, during one of their High Council live streams.
I submit the following outline for consideration.  This is based on my own experience with the recent Star Wars controversies and similar controversies in other IPs.
This is only a starting point, and therefore is a work in progress.  I invite suggestions and insight from others.
I want to stress, that my primary interest is in film and television.  So others that are more deeply involved in comics, novelizations, video games, board games, role playing games, card games, etc., may have additional insight.

They’re coming for your IP next.

THE PHASES OF A GEEKER GATE
1. SJW CRITICISM – The IP is criticized by SJWs for being racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, and a smattering of other things.
2. IP IS ABOUT TO UNDERGO REBOOT – or reimagining, or remake, or whatever term is fashionable at the time.
3. THE BARNACLING – SJWs barnacle themselves to the IP both within its production and without in the fan base, and start lecturing long time fans.
4. FAN CRITICISM – Long time fans of the IP voice legitimate criticism of the new direction.
5. SJW RESPONSE TO FAN CRITICISM – A large fan backlash is created when SJWs both within and without the production falsely accuse critics of being racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic etc.
6. DISMISSING THE BACKLASH – Media publishes pieces declaring the backlash doesn’t exist.
7. IGNORING THE BACKLASH – Media publishes pieces instructing others to ignore the “tiny vocal minority.”
8. SUPPRESSING THE BACKLASH – Blogs and websites delete or otherwise “redact” critical comments and posts in discussion forums under the aegis of “hate speech.”
9. BACKLASH INTENSIFIES – As an inevitable side effect of suppression, backlashers seek out other venues to express their criticism, and some publish their own, growing the backlash exponentially.
10. HATE HOAXES & FALSE FLAGS – The rank and file SJW activists get heavily involved in shouting down critics, and creating false flags and hate hoaxes in an effort to discredit critics.
11. IP FAILURES – The IP starts to falter as fans drift away and sales plummet.
12. THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS – A female member of the production (it could also be a gay man) is granted victim status over a fishy event in order to deflect from the failures of the IP, and shame critics into silence.
13. DESPERATE PLEAS FOR COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT – “White Knights” in the media call for creative authorities to smack down the backlash and restore control of the narrative in response to The Damsel In Distress event.  Media publishes multiple articles with the same talking points and buzzwords such as “toxic” in an effort to mischaracterize the fan base. Major news outlets report on the story, and quote these “think” pieces as authoritative.
14. ANSWERING THE CALL – Celebrities and creative cast & crew answer the media’s call, and make public statements admonishing critical fans, typically over false accusations.
15. THE FINAL PUSH – Media entities, and rank and file SJWs tell long time fans to go find something else if they don’t like it anymore, in a last ditch effort to push critics out of the “community” once and for all.
16.  IP BLEEDING – The IP continues to hemorrhage money, as long time fans continue to abandon the IP in droves.
17.  FANBASE OBLITERATION – The fanbase is utterly destroyed, leaving behind only the small handful of SJWs who don’t make any purchases.
18.  THE END The new incarnation of the IP comes to an end.  Since the majority of the fan base has abandoned it, there’s no more controversy or discussion about it.  It’s over.  The best case scenario is that the original IP is largely forgotten with the exception of a few die-hards who still carry the torch.  The worst case scenario is that the new incarnation of the IP overwrites the original IP, and the original IP is forgotten altogether and overshadowed by the new incarnation in all future media mentions.
19. MIGRATION – The remaining SJWs jump ship to devour a new IP that is popular, and undergoing a transitional phase.
20. REBIRTH – The process begins anew.

  1. This is a more general problem – Social Justice Warriors, backed by the threat of hostile environment suits and sexual harassment suits, have been taking over, looting, and destroying, every form of organization – for example Google and open source software. They have no more interest in writing open source software than they had in star wars. They just hate the fans and want to harm them.

  3. Hello.

    This reads like something from the old OSS ‘Simple Sabotage Field Manual’, especially the parts pertaining to bureaucratic and administrative work. If you are interested, the original is available in declassified form at the CIA webpage.

    What you have outlined is the standard MO for infiltration and subversion of political organisations/parties as practived by socialist cells throughout Europe during and after the Cold War.

    Become memeders of various organisations (unions, sports clubs, Boyscouts, political parties, basically any kind of society, but media, education/child care and cultural especially). Work to add your agenda to that of the organisation – subtly and slowly at first. Vote into executive position only those who support or share your agenda regardless of other concerns. Add your agenda to the stated goals of the organistion.

    If you can manipulate and control communication – its contents especially – you effectively control what can be thought. Associate a word with negativity and that word becomes negative: compare discussing being a man as ‘toxic masculinity’ vs. ‘different aspects of masculinity’.

    Good luck; let’s win this Culture War, yes?

  4. YOU NAILED IT! I saw this in the early days of the internet in many anime online fandoms, mostly anime that focused on male audience, like mecha anime and manga. SJWs hate the white male heteronormative (I hate their terminology) and they made fandom tropes like gender swapping, race swapping, and queer theory and the rejection of objectivity so the canon/source material could be dismissed as they eliminate all fictional characters that embodied straight white male and all criticisms of how the SJW feminist interpretation is far from the source material as one can get. They play victim, troll and false flag (and this is done a lot in shipper wars) spam and astroturf and bully people into conforming to their interpretations of the canon. Livejournal and Tumblr run rampant with these marxist feminist ideologues. Some hypocrisy on the feminist part is thy will target to ridicule classically feminine characters because they get in the way (due to canon making her a love interest for the male hero – and feminist hate that) of their queer fan-made pairing (shipping), some go as far to tell the IP creators/writers that the slash/yaoi shippers understand the characters (while emasculating the males and ignoring classically feminine female characters because feminists hate those) better than anyone else (e.g the tv series Supernatural is severely infested with feminist SJW fans that glorify incest with the two main characters and attacked the leading actors partners in real life for ruining the rabid SJW feminist shipping of the actors as well and they also sent bullying messages to actress Alona Tal that her character Jo Harvelle was killed off, she was originally intended to be a love interest for Dean Winchester and the SJW Feminists can’t allow that). Their argument that under represented groups should be included (shoehorned in as tokens because “diversity”) they use peer pressure, ostracization and shaming if you do not comply, the usual accusations; “bigot/sexist/racist/homophobic”. A huge amount of the slash/yaoi fans in fandom are also followers of SJW ideology, they believe their supporting non-canon pairings is being “inclusive”, they virtue signal to gain more online following in fandoms. They should just create original content for under represented groups, but real diversity isn’t their goal, it is an excuse to destroy IPs that are made for males and their goals is to eliminate or dilute white straight males that are portrayed in a positive light. Notice Hollywood doesn’t have diverse villains (they’re majority white men) but the heroes tend to be diverse. One thing I have noticed in my experience in fandom is feminists SJWs will even call POC racist or internalized racism and also label people of LGBT community homophobic or transphobic if they tell the SJW feminist activists to stop using their group as a shield and stop fetishizing their identity. Same is done to women who are against feminism and do not conform to the ideology. I think they purposely do not create original content for under represented groups so they can co-opt existing established IPs. Divide and conquer is a tactic they use because they take advantage of the controversy. They would never change a POC character to white and a LGBT character to straight but the double standard is they will do the reverse. THAT is how you know SJWs are not serious about diversity and representation.

    • Whether the concept is “white supremacy” or “white privilege” is irrelevant. Both merely represent two sides of the same coin; a deeply sick obsession with the artificial divisions of race.

    • I used to be deeply upset about m/m shipping and how it influeced shows like Supernatural and Teen Wolf. I eventually realized that the creators of these shows shaws these feminist fans coming a long way off. These shows were created to appeal to them and play on the emotions of these witless shippers. All of them think the showrunners don’t know what they are doing or being obstinate on not delivering on the wishes of their shipper harts. The big joke is that they rely on these ships never coming to fruition to keep them hooked throwing them a bone every now and again to make these shippers think they will actually get their ship to become canon. These sapless ‘SJW feminist shippers’ are a joke. Leave them to their cats pining over crack ships that end nowhere.

  5. Articles like this are helpful in giving people various tools with which to operate on a day to day basis. Although it refers to a subset of the culture war, it gives general instruction in how to identify the marxist tactics and, thus, how to avoid or neutralize them.

    An interesting concept I heard about a year ago was ‘Policy Journalism’, something that perhaps you are unknowingly involved in and which is desperately needed nowadays, what with (what I state) Obama’s current climate of Orwellian doublespeak still holding sway. You and others are setting up what I believe could be the next stage in dismantling the fake news/Legacy media hold – journalists that get to the heart of an institutions policies and their related nefariousness.

  7. SJWs are like Tyranids from Warhammer 40K.
    And in the end, the fanbase will perform Exterimatus on the IP leaving it to SJWs who dont buy shit, killing the IP in the End.

  9. This is fucking marvellous! Going to share this. This is exactly what happened to my all time favourite ever series Doctor Who. I am ashamed that DW fans have been such self loathing cucks and not call this crap out.

    Thank god Star Wars fans have some spine. Definitely going to follow your blog. Keep up the good work in fighting for geek culture to survive the effects of these SJW bullies and cowards.

    Highlight ” film and television. comics, novelizations, video games, board games, role playing games, card games, etc.,

    Just as I expected from the hearing on the internet. (Note anything on the internet should be taken with a shit load of salt) Sigh…..As I say in a comment on youtube
    “EVERYTHING GEEK, NERD, WHATEVER IS BEING SIEGE”
    As I’m more to games. This is what I feel

    We gamer have 2 enemies (3 if you have Gov in it) Corporation that is ONLY money but no product
    I am those who did not buy EA Battlefront both of them. They are not up to par (hell they are even close) with the original. Visually and sounds is EXTREMELY good but It hollows in gameplay
    (That may be because I’m a mid-range gamer like I don’t play fortnite not my taste but I did play COD when it was good during my school days)

    With DLC, Lootbox, micro-whatever the quality has gone down “pay for less: come to mind
    Lootbox are gambling but for DLC and Microtransactions it’s a slippery slope
    I do understand people need work “food on the table” that kinda stuff but they need to balance it
    well just like left and right. You have the EA standard of DLC and Micro (and lootbox). Then you have the other
    Warframe and Killing Floor comes to mind (For more on Warframe here something to help. I got no data when to how KF works)
    Check out Noclip https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0fDG3byEcMtbOqPMymDNbw
    . That is your left and right

    So far from my point of view
    There is a taint but it has not infected like Star Wars and Star Trek. So that NEED to be looking out for.

    This is Gov
    For those who have played Halo 3. THIS QUOTE COME TO MIND
    Arbitor to Chief “We traded 1 villain for another”
    So keep your guard up they are neither friends nor enemy
