>We are extremely excited to invite you to our upcoming Tolkien Society online seminar on Saturday and Sunday 3rd-4th July! The schedule is now live on the website and can be viewed here. With sixteen speakers coming to you live in your own home, the day promises to be full of new and fascinating insights into ‘Tolkien and Diversity’.

>Cordeliah Logsdon – Gondor in Transition: A Brief Introduction to Transgender Realities in The Lord of the Rings
>Christopher Vaccaro – Pardoning Saruman?: The Queer in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings
>Danna Petersen-Deeprose – “Something Mighty Queer”: Destabilizing Cishetero Amatonormativity in the Works of Tolkien

Wake me up when the "Let the Orcs in you racist" right-wing meme becomes an actual peer-reviewed paper

BIG ORC COCK

His work is complete and set in stone.

All they can do is interpret it differently. They will never be able to change the reality.
>>
>>18431095
Don't count on that
>>
what purpose exactly does this serve? And why Saruman, lmao - he was a villain, no doubt about that, no matter his sexual preference. Why would you want people to identify with him.
>>
>>18431095
They are absolutely willing and capable of editing past works of literature. Just wait a few years. They're already talking about deliberately mistranslating when making versions in other languages, to allow for greater 'representation and diversity'.

>Martha Celis-Mendoza – Translation as a means of representation and diversity in Tolkien’s scholarship and fandom

BIG ORC COCK can destroy elven bussy and break middle earth forever
>>
>>18430999
It's not like you didn't see it coming, it's not like we didn't tell you but you thought it would be cute to dismiss us and call us schizos instead.
>>
>>18431144
you guys were right, you saw the orc hordes coming into mordor and the elves did nothing, now elves are sissified and sucking big orc cock, while women ride orcish cock while elves watch helplessly.
>>
>Representation is now more important than ever and Tolkien’s efforts to represent (or ignore) particular characteristics requires further examination. Additionally, how a character’s identity shapes and influences its place within Tolkien’s secondary-world still requires greater attention. This seminar aims to explore the many possible applications of “diversity” within Tolkien’s works, his adaptations, and his readership.
>its real
Youd think the Tolkien society would be the last people who would be enthusiastic about changing his work
>>
>>18431172
To be fair they don't actually have anything to do with him besides being his fan club. The actual Tolkien Estate still seems pretty fixed on maintaining the integrity of the works.
>>
>>18431133
Progressivism is tyrannical but temporary.

Your stow-away physical copy of his books aren't eternal, but will last far longer than the evangelical left.

It's simply a process of waiting it out. Not to mention that the increasing decentralization of the internet will ensure that the true source material will always be available - somewhere.

after this seminar, Nazgul will be the authority in middle earth, men and elves will suck orc cock, if they don't comply, the Nazgul will destroy their city and spare no one (expect the women, they will sex slaves for orc cock and they will like it)

LotR has been the new Star Wars since the minute the movies came out. The "final image" no longer exists.
It's over.

inb4 weeb but this already happens a lot with anime subtitles/dubs. SJW fucks just can't help themselves.

They are already editing Dante, censoring all references to Mohammed in the Inferno. You really think Tolkien is sacrosanct

They can’t take away what you have already read and stored in your mind

t. Roman who still doesn't realize it's over circa 470AD
"J-Just wait it out bro, the barbarians can't rule forever"

There were no Romans left at that time

And there are no true westerners left today. Just endless swarms of mixed race soi drinkers. This is the future you wished for.

>>18431388
Yeah but what happens when we die? The Great Conversation, the flame of creation, has been kept alight for literally thousands of years in some cases. We're genuinely in danger of losing Shakespeare, Dante, even passages from Homer. At best we can hope for online archival but it's all really getting out of hand.

Why don't you just kill yourself and save everyone the embarrassment?

Not talking like a video game character would be conductive to a more realistic view of the world around you.

Chris's corpse wasn't cold before his successor turned to rake in money from what ever palm rubbing merchant turned to him.
Ride of the Roherim? The Amazon series? LotR, truly the last bastion, has fallen, and every single one of us sat her and watched.

The prequel animation, from what I gathered, is from Appendix B: The House of Eorl. Set about five centuries before the LotR.

Copyright, and the notion of fictional "canon" are poison. Back to 28 years. It's laughable to think the world moves more slowly than in 1710.

everyone but the people doing it are tired of it

This is just an American phenomenon. In Europe there's a very aggressive and growing pushback against all of this shit. Even at football games the fans keep booing. The bigger problem in Europe is non-whites not American lefty subhumans reinterpreting shitty literature.
>>
>>18434764
check out of society

the more people check out of society, the less people these cretins have to control

it's that simple, the left envisions and desires a total state scenario where everyone is plugged in politically

the best way to resist is to reject modernity in its entirety, and this is not a meme but genuine solid advice

Couldn't a Dutch just drive into the neighboring nation and buy Dante's inferno in that language? Or just buy an older copy? Are they really altering it all or just a certain publisher.

Ok so I'm transgender, I've loved Lord of the Rings since I read The Hobbit as a child and the Lord of the Rings in my early teens, I've read the series 4 times since then

In country in the last years the publisher of LOTR decided for no reasons to stop printing and selling the original 50 years or so old edition everyone read, and hires a famous collective of leftists to writer a completelly new translation
Their announced goal? To make a more faithfull translation of LOTR, claiming that the old one was full of errors and wrongly convinced everyone that Tolkien litterature Is right wing (LOTR was Always popular among rightists here)
