LET ME OUT – OOOPS I found This In Drafts ! OOOPS !

Rumpelstiltskin terrified me as a child. The fate of a girl sealed by her absurd braggart father, and a selfish, mean spirited elf/sprite/demon creature. Helpless against fate, that seemed like such a cruel fate to me. I never liked the story.

At the ENCHANTMENT Stamp Card event this round you can live the romance and pretties of the story without actually fearing for your life. As with each round, once you purchase an item from one of the participating merchants at their mainstore, you get a stamp card that you can take around and while wearing it – you touch the ENCHANTMENT vendor at each participating vendor. Once you get to the end of them, you can go to the prize room to unlock a special prize from one of the creators.

If you buy more than one item, you get more than one stamp card and that equals more than one prize !

It’s such a cool event, and even if you get locked in a tower and forced to spin straw into gold, chances are good you’ll sort a way out of it and end up with the prince. Chances are VERY good.

Pixel Gidge Had a Busy Day

Pixel Gidge started her day with lots to do. FLF is today, and in addition to that I realized I had to get decorating for Thanksgiving. The temperatures had dropped here on Juicy so I had to snuggle up into some cozy cold weather clothes from FISSION. It’s a perfect turtleneck sweater for chilly days. Continue reading

Feminist

Misogynist bullshit from TIME magazine’s annual ban-a-word poll.

I was feeling fiercely angry after learning that TIME included feminist on a list of words to be banned from common usage. I will not provide the link because they did it for traffic and they should not be rewarded for their indecency.

And it is indecent. For clicks, shits and giggles, a human gerbil desperately spinning for male approval and working far above her competency suggested that feminist is overused and included it in a list of words that should be banned. Responding to richly deserved backlash, she demanded we consider the context; she is critiquing media trends, not feminism. This is doubly shameless when she blithely ignores the context in which the “I am a Feminist” campaign came to be. I am sure she is proud of herself, though, because she is the kind of feckless  crystallization of vapidity that always will be very, very, very proud of itself.

I am not going to rehash GamerGate or the War on Women or review the depressingly long list of women whom retrograde knuckle-walkers have tried to silence with rape and death threats. I am not going to list the long list of anti-women legislation proposed and passed. I will only sadly mention that 36% of Oregon voters voted that women should not have the same legal and civil rights as men. It is all sad and depressing, but, Katy Steinmetz, that is context.

Feminism is controversial because as women have become more economically independent and achieved a measure of parity in society, they are less susceptible to social and economic extortion to remain in bad relationships. Is a good relationship possible with a man who thinks women are second class citizens? That, Katy Steinmetz, is context.

Of course, Katy Steinmetz is not that important and she never will be. Though I imagine someday she will realize that she is paid significantly less than men in her same position – notoriously common in journalism. She may be angry, she might want to express that anger with a word. I wonder what word she will use?

Give a Man a Fish

Mahrathon-2014-Sq_SL

There is a popular quote that says, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Perhaps there should be an addendum. Give a man at fishing net and he can feed his family. Heifer International is all about not only teaching people to provide for themselves, but also giving them the means to get started. Depending on where they live, people in poverty are given anything from honeybees to water buffalo and launched into the business of not just feeding themselves, but making a living. In addition, they pledge to pass it on to another family, raising the standard of living for the entire community in time.

Every December, Maht Wuyts does his annual Mahrathon to raise money for Heifer. He DJs for 26.2 hours from The Velvet in Second Life and from a coffee shop in Chicago – a RL/SL event that raised $2500 last year.

Because it is happening in two worlds simultaneously, it is helpful to have a few hosts to help greet people and encourage contributions, so if anyone would like to volunteer to cover an hour or two as a host – encouraging friends to come join in the fun and greet people, please IM me in world.

And everyone, mark your calendars – so you don’t miss the fabulous Marathon. The music is great.
