Dear survivors of the zombie apocalypse (and everyone else):
Surely we all love the notion of surviving the zombie apocalypse. We’re human. We want to live. We want our friends, family, colleagues, and even strangers to survive the zombie apocalypse, and the preceding days.
Survival means a lot of things. We tend to think of the zombie apocalypse as a great methaphor and (sometimes) fun fantasy. Movies, comic books, and blogs like this are tons of fun, and can also help us better understand the ourselves and the human condition.
To that end, we love encouraging creative preparation for the zombie apocalypse, and have some fun plans for this site!
However, we are very aware that violence is inherent to the zombie genre. We get that in this genere there will always be fantastical portrayals of violence against zombies, and violence in a non-hateful context.
In times like these, culture – video games, movies, the internet – is often blamed for encouraging and glorifying weapons and violent acts.
We’d like to take a small stand, raise the issue, and make it clear that this blog, it’s authors, and owner discourage violence against humans in all forms. We will not allow this site to become a haven for those who fetishize violence and weapons.
We encourage smart creativity, and we discourage base-level thinking. So: keep up the great zombie apocalypse survival tips submissions, and stay smart!
