This May Be the Best Thing to Happen Ever

Okay, so, remember how some group that actually calls themselves the "Sad Puppies" fucked up the Hugo Awards to give an even more unfair advantage to cishet white men? Well, the Hugo Awards decided to change the rules to stop them from being fucked with by said Puppies, and so the leader of the Pups decided to try and kill any legitimacy the Hugos have left by nominating Chuck Tingle, the pseudonym of the man who writes comedy erotica (comerotica?) and sells it on Amazon under titles like "My Billionaire Triceratops Craves Gay Ass" and "My Ass Is Haunted By The Gay Unicorn Colonel."

As it turns out, Chuck Tingle is the best troller there ever was and ever will be. His mastery is enough to bring a tear to my amateur eye.


Chuck Tingle counter-trolls the Gamergaters who nominated his erotica for a Hugo Award

His twitter trolling in his Chuck Tingle persona is brilliant enough, but he also wrote a comerotica story called "Slammed in the Butt by My Hugo Award Nomination" because OF COURSE HE WOULD. And the cherry on top is that, because he can't be there in person to collect the award, he's tagged Zoe Quinn, most hated person by all horrible whiny bigoted nerds everywhere, to come and accept the award for him. And she's happy to do it.

I fucking love everything about that article. I recommend reading it for gems like "The Hugo Awards are a formerly prestigious sci-fi honor, hijacked in recent years by racist neoreactionaries and Gamergaters aiming to Make Science Fiction Not Diverse Again."
