Link Treats

It’s Wednesday, it’s still humid as hell (plus more rain. Yay?), but I have links for you. Kind of heavy, but I try to end on an up note. Enjoy!

 

My New Convention Harassment Policy
This is a little dusty now, but still good to know. John Scalzi on what he requires from any con he might attend. Oh, and if you want to co-sign, like I and over 900 other folks have, you can do that here.

 

If My Vagina Shot Bullets Could I Conceal It From Rick Perry and John Kasich
Margaret and Helen on the latest crush of forced birth, anti-woman legislation that’s happening in Texas and Ohio. And, well, everywhere. It’s North Carolina taking the lead this week.

 

Hell Yeah: Texas Woman Lays Into Legislators at Abortion Bill Hearing
But women are fighting back, like Sarah Slamen. Watch her rock over at Jezebel.

 

This Court Sucks
The Weekly Sift on what’s wrong with the Supreme Court

 

Life Lessons from Mystery Science Theater 3000
My favorite tv show (yes, even more than anything Whedon’s done). Leah Schnelbach at Tor shares a bit of what she learned from the show. #8 might be my favorite, but they’re all good.

Weekend Linkroll

It’s a sad weekend here in the U.S. as we all try to process the latest story of (to paraphrase Ms. DiFranco) some boy reaching for the available arsenal and sauntering off to make the news. Heartbreaking stuff. My sympathies go out to all involved.

The first two links concern the shooting. The rest don’t. Hopefully, those three will bring a smile to your faces. We all need a smile.

Guns do not kill people. They just make it easier to kill people.
Margaret and Helen discussing the topic. I disagree strongly that now is not the time to have this conversation. If not now, when?

Set a date and time to have a conversation about gun policy in the United States.
And, along those lines, a White House petition you can sign if you also think that it’s finally time to discuss gun policy in this country. And before you get all freaked out about me wanting to take all your guns away, understand that I own guns, I’ve had training in their use, and I know how to use them. I have no problem with responsible gun ownership. But I also have no problem with that ownership being regulated. I had to go through more trouble getting a driver’s license than I did acquiring guns. That’s just crazy. (If you disagree, fine. But if you want to troll me over this, don’t bother. Your comment will never see the light of day.)

A Bunch Of Sad, Insecure Dudes Attacked A Woman And Everyone Got What They Deserved
Anita Sarkeesian is my internet hero. She rocks hard.

Jim Hines’ Pose-Off with John Scalzi
It’s for charity and it’s awesome.

Jordan Hawk’s Link-O-Geek
This week, Fellowship of the Wraiths. Kind of adorable.

Belated Weekend Linkroll

Where did the weekend go this time? Wherever it went, it was in a big damned hurry to get there, and now it’s Monday already.

But I still have a collection of links for you. Hope you enjoy them. I’d love to know if any strike your fancy. And if any of you know how I can get my weekend back, chime in, too. Continue reading
