Weekly Recap May 5th: Journalists Liken Overwatch Teabagging To Sexual Assault
Weekly Recap

There wasn’t a whole lot of big news this week, which I suppose is a good thing. The first week of May was a lot more tame than some of the previous weeks of 2018. It wasn’t quite chock full of SJWism, but it was still plenty present. For instance, SJW journalists attempted to liken teabagging in Overwatch to sexual assault. Yes, squatting Tracer’s sweaty, spandex-clad vulva over someone’s face after they were shot and killed has been likened to sexual assault.

Later in the week other ridiculous bits of news surfaced, such as Civil Rights lawyers getting Altright.com shutdown and attempting to silence and censor Richard Spencer’s voice after the site called on Americans to start using their Second Amendment rights to take back America by wiping out some minorities, Mexicans and Muslims. And there’s going to be a DOOM movie reboot but the main characters are going to be two chicks. These stories and more in this May 5th, 2018 edition of the Weekly Recap.

SJWs Call Overwatch Teabagging Sexual Assault

We’re back to this again, folks. Some SJWs in the media are now claiming that teabagging in a game like Overwatch is akin to sexual assault or sexual abuse.
