I know this is my 1st post under this alias, I've been under this name for almost two years now outside of Heresy, back in the day I was a regular on this site under the name The Spore (or it was Spore Mine can't remember) anyway this was my work I use to share on here a long time ago, TheSpore666's DeviantArt Gallery

Anyway this is not why I am here, I am back to bring this discussion to you all, this article dropped this week on BoLS as a guest editorial,

Mobile On Maturity, 40K and Slaanesh - Bell of Lost Souls

Now, skip towards the end where the author is pointing out how Slaanesh is not mature enough and the think of the children rhetoric is being used in the article, basically screaming for GW to remove Slaanesh from the lore and the game.

Now, I have seen this type of thing begin and it won't be long before more weirdos like this start popping up to do this, its the cult of Social Justice, these people will claim that anyone who disagree with them is racist, or sexist, they will claim things need to change and your hobby needs to grow up. Also take note these kind of people DO NOT buy anything they DO NOT care about the hobby its all about pushing an agenda and forcing their politics, they are loud but few in numbers most the time.

Its happened in Comics, its happened to Movies, its been happening to other TTGaming communities, and most recently the #GamerGate thing where its happened in Video Games.

I love 40k and I just want to get the word out before more of this starts to happen in the 40k community. I just want people to know DO NOT let this happen, u have to refute them and push back hard on them to show them they need to stop.

I talk about this stuff in both comics and 40k in the below links:

What are everyone's thoughts on this

***Understand I am not here to shill my YT channel I just wanna to make sure people are aware before they truly push to demonize the community****

I honestly think that this Social Justice Warrior thing has gone too far. Why plastic soldiers have no women in the bag? Ridiculous.
About the article, me thinks that addressing Slaanesh as genderphobic and immature or offensive is pathetic and blatantly stupid. I think slaanesh is the most mature, gender-equal aspect of the game(he/she is a fucking hermaphrodite and would totally cheer knowing you are a drag, trans or have mixed sexuality.) What about the fascist - male driven - patriarchy Empire of star-holocaust? How comes that THAT is ok and absolutely halal for those fuckers that keep bashing their heads over gender policies in games?
Also, i've always wondered why saying "tits" loud is going to kill a 12 yo mind while "Exterminatus" is perfetly ok. Let's read something good about exterminatus (from WH40K wikia)

" they completely wiped out Istvaan III's entire population of 16 billion people in only minutes, leaving the planet barren but habitable, if only just"
16 billions dead people is ok. Tits are not. basically you can go along the road and shout heil fucking hitler, but you better keep those tits in check, motherfucker.

"Imperial Virus Bombs release a special virus known as the Life-eater Virus that was genetically designed to quickly spread and destroy all organic cellular structures it infects, reducing all planetary life, whether flora or fauna, to an undifferentiated organic sludge of biochemicals and organic gasses as a by-product, both of which are highly flammable. Exterminatus protocols dictate that a lance strike or an incendiary device be deployed to ignite the byproducts and turn the atmosphere into a firestorm that usually takes out whatever life may be left."
Again, it's ok to portray an entire planet (made of people like you, me, the baker, the mechanic over there, that mother with toddler there) just sludging its way to the grond due to virus induced liquefaction. And then become a ball of fire. Ok then. Totally sane.
I bet a lot of the foreign fighters in Siria And Libia took some of the WH40K novels too seriously. And not the sexy parts.

Also, why the hell Slaanesh is considered to be just the god of kinky sex? He is not. If i say "lust, excess, pride, perfection. Also with exposed female breast" and you laugh 'cause you only heard "breast", i am mature and you are not.

I fear that an Age of Sigmar treatment is coming for slaanesh in 40K too, thanks to people like this moron who wrote that (interesting but) stupid article.

If anything, mature aspects of the game, not involving violence, should be further developed, at least in the books if not in the game itself.

Ok. Rant over.

Btw @LordNurgle0777 i like your rants.
