2017 FSTDT Awards

Category Nominations

Quote# 133675

This is the post where we nominate categories for the 2017 FSTDT Awards! Feel free to nominate as many categories as you like, discuss them, give suggestions, etc. in the comments below.

But don't start nominating quotes yet — just categories — though do give at least a couple example quotes from your category and a brief explanation of it if it's not self-explanatory. All examples will be eligible for nomination next month. If necessary, we'll narrow down the number of categories during the last week of this month. I think most categories will be accepted, though, provided they're not overly narrow, and they have eligible quotes from at least three or so people. (But finding and demonstrating this is you guys' job.)

I've provided an example category nomination below. (If you know me, you probably already know what it's about.)

Also note: Unless most of you guys object, we're just going to award individual quotes this year instead of people, since the winners would most likely be "X of the Year" anyway. There will also only be two rounds of elimination. But I'll get more into detail about that when it comes time to nominate quotes.

Standard Categories

The quote of the year
• Religious
• Wingnut
• Moonbat
• Conspiracy theorist
• Racist
• Sexist (Split into Misogynist, Misandrist, Binarist? Y/N)
• Funniest
• Nightmare fuel
• WTF?! (For incomprehensible and just plain bizarre stuff, such as this)
_

Nominated Categories

UFOnaut of the year (shy): Quotes about UFOs, aliens, alien-like "extradimensional entities," and so forth. These sorts of quotes are just inherently funny to me for some reason, and this has been a banner year for them; see here, here, and here

Jack Chick Memorial Award (Bastethotep): For "best" cartoon

Historical Revisionist Award (Bastethotep): Self-explanatory

Edgelord of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): - self-explanatory.

Pseudointellectual of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): - self-explanatory.

Unreliable Narrator of the Year (Pharaoh Bastethotep): for incel or ***maniac anecdotes that are, at best, obviously warped beyond recognition, if not outright fabrications.

Veruca Salt Award (Salami): For achievements in unwarranted entitlement and whining

No Fun Allowed Award (Salami): Self-explanatory

Pharaoh Bastethotep

Jack Chick Memorial Award for the worst cartoonist.

PS:
Historical Revisionist of the Year.

* Xenophobe of the year.

And if we're going to split sexist into misogynist and misandrist, then why don't we split sexist into a category for people hating on non-binary genders?

11/1/2017 7:01:21 AM

Salami

Veruca Salt Award for Achievements in False Entitlement and Whining
Most incel posts would qualify, really. But I'll link posts as examples

Hu's On First

Ableist of the year?

There've been quite a few quotes on here bashing disabled people, and autistic people in particular, so I think they should have a category of their own. For example, the Kiwi Farms quote that said "autists should be deported" (don't remember who it was by).

Also, maybe a category for quackery. For instance, Gwyneth Paltrow's psychic vampire repellent spray.

11/1/2017 7:15:34 AM

dxdydz

But don't start nominating quotes yet — just categories —


I'm nominating the category of small categories.

For real now, I think we should have a numerologist of the year and a science denialist of the year.

Pharaoh Bastethotep

@Hu's on First:
Definitively needs a better name than Ableist. I need that stupid ugly word made up and used exclusively by ivory basement moonbats who really need to stop trying to "help" the disabled.

11/1/2017 8:50:51 AM

Salami

@Pharoah Bastethotep

Given the connection between discrimination against people with disabilities and eugenics, maybe it could be Eugenicist of the Year?

Or alternatively, you could have an Anti Disability Rights Activist of the Year?

11/1/2017 9:03:49 AM

Pharaoh Bastethotep

@Salami:
Eugenicist of the Year

This is what I thought of myself, so I second it.

11/1/2017 9:06:57 AM

I second: Jack Chick Memorial Award for the worst cartoonist.

I also second: UFOnaut of the year

11/1/2017 11:54:24 AM

I'll let you guys come to a consensus for the name of the "fuck the disabled" award, then I'll add it to the list.

Other than that, added everyone's nominations (I think — let me know if I missed something!)

@hydrolythe: Thank you for pointing that out! Right now I'm leaning toward "no" on the split, but if enough people disagree, I'll split it into Misogynist, Misandrist, and Binarist.

11/1/2017 12:00:04 PM

Insult to Rocks

I want an award to address the growing number of anarchist and far-Left Marxist quotes we've gotten. So, I'll suggest the Tankie Award for worst communist and the ANARCHY award for worst anarchist.
Also, a TERF award would be great.

11/1/2017 3:11:22 PM

Hu’s On First

Also, for the Mack Majors of the world, how about an I’m Totally Not In It Just For The Money Award?

11/1/2017 7:02:11 PM

shy

Added (with a little artistic license on the names)! If you guys have any clever ideas for names for the existing nominations, submit those too!

11/2/2017 2:00:42 AM

Cyber-Brownshirt of the Year Award: for neo-Fascists and the alt-right.

11/2/2017 2:53:19 AM

One I just thought of:

* Quack economist of the year

This is for quotes where the guy behind them demonstrates a lack of understanding even basic economics. Something like this would qualify: http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=132547

11/2/2017 7:13:19 AM

Why not name it "Social Darwinist of the Year"?

11/2/2017 10:42:43 AM

SomeApe

What about 10'000 ANSI-Lumen Award, you know, for the brightest projection :)

*badumm-tshhh*

11/2/2017 11:24:45 AM

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I'll add them to the list tomorrow!

Another suggestion:

No Fun Allowed Award
For the fundie who just cannot stand the idea of others doing enjoyable things and having personal preferences.

[sarcasm] You know, for God, the master race, etc. and not just as a way of controlling people or the emotional gratification of the fundie through abuse of power or otherwise putting others down [/sarcasm].

The title is a reference to meme below:

Though this version of the meme I thought was pretty fitting too:


Examples of posts that qualify (boy we have a treasure trove here):

http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=108064
http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=82080
http://www.fstdt.com/QuoteComment.aspx?QID=133728 [warning, quote NSFW because of pro-rape and pro-sexual assault advocacy for women wearing ripped jeans]

I could go on and on but I'll stop there.

I can't believe no one mentioned an award for Dunning-Krueger. Also, we need an Albedo award for hypocrisy; nothing beats the glare of that shiny, shiny mirror.

11/3/2017 3:19:40 AM

Updated. I think I've got everybody's new nominations added. Let me know if I missed one or got something wrong!

11/3/2017 1:17:01 PM

Should we put something about ancaps and hardcore Libertarians, such as Ancapistani Award or Somalia Libertarian Award? An award for neo-Confederates such as Confederate Straggler Award might also be a good idea.

11/3/2017 1:53:12 PM

Pharaoh Bastethotep

Hannibal Lecter Wannabe of the Year for deranged sickos with delusions of being a diabolic mastermind playing fiendish mindgames. Examples: everything by cantfightnature, this post by Alia Harkonnen, or this.

Evo Psycho of the Year for the worst instance of biologistic pseudoscience.

Edgelord of the Year - self-explanatory.

Most Obnoxious Style of the Year - e.g. Tim Rattay's delusions of intellectual pwnage, Chateau Heartiste's pseudointellectual vulgarism, Mike King's self-indulgent attempts at snark...

Vogon of the Year for the worst poem.

Pseudointellectual of the Year - self-explanatory.

Some award for the worst "meme" bullshit, be it "meme warfare" or "X is just a meme!"

I think Eugenicist fits the anti-disabled award better than Social Darwinist. Possibly have both as them as a separate awards?
Also, I second hydrolythe's Quack Economist Award.

PS:
Unreliable Narrator of the Year for incel or ***maniac anecdotes that are, at best, obviously warped beyond recognition, if not outright fabrications.

PPS:
Failed Statesman of the Year for neoreactionaries and other crackpots of political philosophy, e. g. "Libertarian Fascism".

I second Vogon of the Year.

@Pharoah
Some award for the worst "meme" bullshit, be it "meme warfare" or "X is just a meme!"

I feel like that would already qualify under Most Obnoxious Style of the Year.

However, if you wanted to count memes separately, I propose the "Pepe the Frog Memorial Award" (in honor of our fallen froggy friend, who was co-opted by alt-righters for nefarious purposes, and eventually killed off by his creator who is now busy suing the crap out of said alt-righters) and the "Internet Carcinogen Award" ("cancer" is a common meme used to denote poor quality memes).
