It was only a matter of time before ultra woke Blizzard Entertainment would start normalizing the terrible mental illness of gender dysphoria by promoting transgender ideology in their World of Warcraft MMORPG. That black day has finally arrived with the creation of a major WoW lore figure named Pelagos.
Who is Pelagos?
Pelagos is high profile androgynous NPC that magically shows up and guides players through the new Shadowlands expansion. The backstory of Pelagos is that she/he/it spent earthly existence as a female, and chose to be a man in the WoW afterlife. But Pelagos is having trouble ascending and needs your help.
Here’s Blizzard’s official announcement from Randy “Kaivax” Jordan :
A key part of the Bastion storyline is that Aspirants are able to choose a physical form that represents their true self. Pelagos, who presented as a woman in his mortal life, chose to be a man in the Shadowlands. The team had originally written him to use they/them pronouns, but received feedback that he/him would be more respectful of the character’s wishes to be identified as a man. This change is simply the result of us listening and responding to that feedback.
So Pelagos was a man that was trapped inside a woman’s body. What original storytelling! What dazzling imagination! This is epic and the stuff of legends! Saint Pelagos undoubtedly deserves a special cinematic to celebrate his glorious rebirth with testicles and a penis!
All his life he aspired to be a man. Now he is an Aspirant? Did you see what they did there? Sneaky and clever. You guys are good, real good.
And there you have it. Blizzard’s first official transgender character complete with pronouns. Let the moral preening and virtue signaling begin!
What if players refuse to acknowledge Pelagos as a man? Will Pelagos go into a testoerone filled rage and attack the player? Will Pelagos turn into a Karen and report you to the authorities?
Will players who disagree with the normalizing of transgender ideology be able to opt out of this disturbing quest line?
Will players are found to be “misgendering” Pelagos be reported by player snitches and be suspended or banned?
Attention starved, pink coiffed, trans allies have chimed in the Wowhead forums to commend Blizzard for their wokeness. Naturally Wowhead’s inclusive moderators who just finished promoting PRIDE month, are closely monitoring the forums for any hint of homophobia or transphobia.
In fact, a Wowhead moderator named Thum has already removed 9 comments and just locked the thread. No viewpoint diversity is allowed on Wowhead. Got it.
I have no doubt that Blizzard will be expecting to win a special award from GLAAD or DICE in the following months for “breaking down barriers” and for helping the “marginalized” and “disenfranchised” trans community. Being master storytellers, I’m sure they have their speeches ready.
You can expect to see glowing puff piece articles about Blizzard’s “bravery” from the reliable shills like Kotaku, Polygon, VentureBeat, Blizzard Watch, and Massively Overpowered in the weeks to come.
Blizzard claims they got feedback to change they/them to he/him.What feedback? Did Blizzard ever poll their players to ask them if they wanted LGBTQ charcters in WoW?
I would bet my life that Blizzard got this “feedback” from their secret internal diversity/inclusion advisory group.
How do you qualify to join this group?
Answer: you need to be a raging feminist, a minority or LGBTQ person
Does Blizzard have a special group that represents conservatives, traditional values people, people of faith, and heterosexuals that advises on how they are represented in Blizzard games?
You already know the answer.
You can be sure that Blizzard will not miss an opportunity to share Pelagos’s heartbreaking sob story of how she/he/it was bullied by male white skinned heterosexual religious bigots while she/he/it was alive. I’m sure they can convince Chris Metzen to come out of retirement to retcon the Scarlet Crusade to turn them into dastardly bigots and malevolent transphobes.
At this accelerated rate of Blizzard’s moral posturing, they may even erect a statue of Pelagos at the Blizzard headquarters in Irvine. Expect it to be unveiled for PRIDE month in 2021 along with free condoms, sex toys, and products from Rubbermaid.
The WoW afterlife is a trans person’s paradise as one can choose to be whatever wants. It’s like a gender cafeteria. You can also choose to be afflicted by whatever trendy mental illness that tickles your fancy. You can be a bird, a plane, and even a cup of tea. The gods of the WoW universe are inclusive, diverse, and pro-LGBTQ just like the people who run Blizzard. What a shocking coincidence!
Clearly, the lore of the Aspirants was a cleverly concocted sneaky plot device to justify the inclusion of transgender, gender fluid characters into the Warcraft lore canon.
If it’s any consolation to people who care, the real Heaven will not be like the absurd and preposterous woke afterlife that the Blizzard story/narrative team, and the diversity/inclusion star chamber have mutually fabricated. Eventually, they will find out too late, that the real God of the universe is not a wide-eyed, slack jawed, smirking genie who with a wink and a nod, grants you any depraved wish once you arrive in Heaven.
While Blizzard 2.0 distracts the public by supporting Black Lives Matter (an anti-Christian Marxist domestic terror group) and panders to the subversive LGBTQ agenda, they continue to do business with the communist Chinese regime that is persecuting millions of Muslims, Christians and non-religious Chinese people in concentration camps. The very same Orwellian Chinese regime that controls every aspect of life in China. They very same brutal Chinese regime that harvests the organs from prisoners. The very same communist thugs that are currently absorbing Hong Kong into the Borg communist Chinese collective.
And not a single solitary peep from Steve Danuser, Christie Golden, Alex Afrasiabi, and the rest of the stalwart Blizzard story team about any of this because pandering to the 37 trans people who play WoW is far more important than basic human rights of millions of people in China. These folks are truly inspirational profiles in courage.
You see, adding a yet another LGBTQ character to a video game is easy and costs nothing; doing something concrete like refusing to do business with dictators and despots who murder their own people takes effort and costs you millions.
Just when I thought I might actually play WoW retail, they pull a stupid virtue signalling stunt like this and alienate faithful Christians and people with traditional values. I am dumbfounded. I will NEVER play WoW retail and subject myself to cultural Marxist propaganda created by depraved and immoral people. I REFUSE to validate your depraved and woke filth.
The politically incorrect truth is that Blizzard Entertainment is led by crypto Marxists who either knowingly or unknowingly serve the fallen master of this world. Like BLM and ANTIFA, their goal is to destroy Christendom and Western civilization. They are doing it with the infusion of identity politics propaganda designed to destabilize our country and normalize deviancy. They are suffering from a demonic disorientation that seeks to undermine every aspect of our culture.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. ― Isiah 5:20
There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. ― Proverbs 14:12
By now, everyone knows that Blizzard is Blizzard in name only. Most of the good and sensible people have left Blizzard. Blizzard has been reduced to a worn out sausage machine that accepts second rate talent and grinds out second rate fare. It will only get worse as time progresses.
Blizzard is unsalvageable at this point. The revolution always eats its own and the cultural Marxists are destroying the company from within. Good! The faster this evil company goes broke, and is emptied into the dustbin of video game history, the better for everyone.
The indie studio revolution is coming. The days of the AAA+ studios spending millions of dollars on video games are over. It’s unsustainable and can’t continue. Good riddance!
