["Your TTRPG setting doesn't need...
• Sexism • Racism • Homophobia • Transphobia • Ableism
You can create a wonderfully immersive and enjoyable experience for your players without any of those things. Let your players escape the nastiness of the real world for a moment."]

It is nice when the Fake Gamers out themselves so readily, but this performative virtual signalling is really meant to be part of the gatekeeping campaign to push their enemies--those not of the SJW Death Cult--out of the subculture and hobby, or at least its public-facing elements, so that they can control the narrative surrounding tabletop RPGs. Narrative control then becomes cultural control and feeds into political control.

This does matter. Remember that while the cultists you encounter on Twitter aren't the shot-callers, the ones working the meme machines do call the shots and they play the long game. They know that if they control perception, they can control intake into a subculture and arrange intake into indoctrination. They know they can do this because this is how they seized control over academia, and via academia control over everything else.

What they can't control, they destroy. (e.g. the recent Big Brand crashes) What they can't destroy, they wall off; this is what they are attempting to do with anime access into the West via controlling localizers and media outlets, driving folks into piracy and importing, and if you think there isn't a plan to suddenly become very effective at enforcing piracy via Big Tech snooping you haven't paid any attention.

So it needs to be resisted and destroyed, and at the street level that means taking their social displays and upending them. Outgroup them--they hate and fear that--at every turn, demonstrate proof over them, and watch them flee back to their bubbles. Lather, rinse, repeat; the objective is to hijack their amygdalas and force freakouts because their r-select psychologies can't handle the K. And remember to apply the Witch Test when they inevitably resort to moralist positions to attack you; nothing outgroups like forcing them to reveal that they reject God's mercy by rejecting his son Jesus.
