The Puppies Are at It Again

I have very little to say about the Sad Puppies and Rabid Puppies other than this: They are immature, sad people who have nothing better to do than sabotage a prestigious science fiction and fantasy award. I’m talking about the Hugo Awards. What happened? They got a short story named Space Raptor Butt Invasion by Chuck Tingle nominated. Congratulations, Puppies and Vox Day, you’ve trolled the Hugos yet again, and I find it rather irritating.

The big problem I have with the Puppies is that they are against diversity. And the comment Day made about N. K. Jemisin was rather insulting. Check out the entire article here.

I watched the awards ceremony last year. Many of the awards were not given out because people voted “no award.” It was a rather sad award ceremony. I can only predict a similar outcome this year.

What do you think about this whole situation with the Hugo Award and the Puppies? Let me know in the comments.

    1. They’re nominated by members of the World Science Fiction Convention, and then voted on by the same members. Unfortunately, there’s a group of white men who have hijacked the system because they’re annoyed that there are women and non-white people writing science fiction and fantasy. They don’t want diversity.

    1. I’m inclined to agree. Although the Sad Puppies may have some valid complaints, I don’t agree with them, nor do I agree with their tactics. The Rabid Puppies are worse, thanks to Mr. Day.
