Dog Catchers

Lately if you’re a sci-fi/fantasy fan you might of heard about the Sad or Rabid Puppies.  They are a campaign to get books from white male authors nominated for a Hugo and try to flood the slate of categories to once of there approval.  The system is easy to game for that of all it’s over 10000 members at WorldCon only a small portion of them submit ballots for nomination.  This has many of the same vain as Gamergate.  It seems like the right wing hate machine is getting it tentacles into everything that is changing to be more diverse.

So how we going to change this you ask?  Do the same that the occupy movement and the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign.  We need to get the rest of the WorldCon goes to nominate books that are not supported by the sad puppies.  To strengthen are resolve like the Occupy Wall St movement.  Pressure authors and artists to no accept the nomination if they are on the sad puppies list.  Same goes for publishers also.  TO BE DOG CATCHERS.
