DON'T REVOKE ADAM BALDWIN'S INVITE TO THE SUPANOVA POP CULTURE EXPO

Dear Daniel Zachariou and Supanova Pop Culture Industries,

Do not revoke Adam Baldwin's invite to the upcoming Supanova Pop Culture Expos in Sydney and Perth, and continue inviting him to any future event as appropriate.

Why is this important?

Adam Baldwin has been a prominent figure in a movement opposed to moral authoritarianism, censorship, and manipulation of media.

Banning him from Supanova indicates to everyone that if they don't toe the line with Brianna Wu's ideology, they will be blacklisted from media events, starting with Supanova.

It is giving in to people who desire controlling the narrative of what people see, letting them control who can and cannot speak.

I'm asking Supanova to be a place where fans can celebrate the media they love with the people who are part of it, not the media approved of by a limited sect.


Reasons for signing

  • Because this is censorship in the stupidest degree and prioritises hurt feelings over political discussion. Because there isn't the slightest chance Adam Baldwin will threaten or hurt anyone at Supanova. Because other people want to listen to what he has to say. Because he's not even there to speak about GamerGate. Because some whiny brats shouldn't dictate what everyone else gets to hear.
  • Banning someone from an event because of their opinion is utterly stupid.
  • Because Adam Baldwin hasn't been "involved in numerous instances of harassment and abuse towards women" and there is no evidence to support such a claim. Do not punish a man for crimes he is innocent of.

Hey all.

We've managed to overtake half of the petition to revoke Adam Baldwin's count. Thank you for your support, and I'm humbled that I managed to get even this far this quickly.

If you would be kind enough to share once more, I thoroughly believe we can beat their petition, and communicate to Supanova that being able to talk with the people we admire is more important than punishing political opinions.

Again, thank you all.
