"It’s worth asking just how we arrived at this point, where passing judgement against individuals based on skin color came in vogue again and is considered not only fair game but progressive."
—Chloé Simone Valdary

In this article, a black woman reflects on the changes she's seen from growing up steeped in pro-black education to today. She treats proponents of intersectionality as if they are all aware of its critical-theory foundational concepts, but I would say that these concepts are, for most proponents, implicit rather than explicit.

"So if you are a right-wing, conservative, or perhaps libertarian thinker, and you consider yourself an opponent of political correctness, I have a message: Political correctness, as a movement, is a winning issue for you. It is disabling some of the ideas you don’t like. You might want to celebrate in secret, but celebrate you should."

Former Islamist Maajid Nawaz gets called an Islamophobe for saying that Islam needs a reformation, but at least he eventually gets the apologies that he deserves.

Probably predictable that the most politically active people on both sides of the spectrum are the most ideologically extreme and the most privileged.

I’m deeply grateful that Greg Stafford was alive and that he lived the life he did, and I’m honored by whatever affection he had for me personally. When I was a young fan trying to get material published through Chaosium, he encouraged me. When Mark and I started Lion Rampant, he gave us insiders’ tips. Ever since, I have tried to support newcomers to the industry. When bluenoses in GAMA wanted to establish a “gaming code” that would exclude adult themes of all sorts, including infidelity, he protested. How can you handle a King Arthur RPG without infidelity? When Burning Man was getting popular and losing some of its original charm, he told me to go. Eventually, I attended Burning Man several times, and I’m glad I did. For thirty years, I’ve been applying the lessons that his game world of Glorantha taught me about world design. The fascination that 90s-era RPGs had with clans, houses, and other factions, for example, derived from Glorantha. The way I describe conflicting versions of the truth in the new Over the Edge derives from Glorantha. In 2015, Greg and others won the Diana Jones Award for the Guide to Glorantha. I’m glad he lived long enough to see that massive, two-volume work get released and for it to win a noteworthy award. Bravo and farewell, Greg Stafford.

An old friend of mine from Wizards is part of a new company in Seattle that's hiring. They are developing a digital health and lifestyle enhancement program with a game-like experience for the user. They need someone to design and run the game experience, someone to manage the game "economy", and lots more. They have big clients lined up and are planning to expand, so they might want to hear from you even if you don't fit a particular job listed here.

'That’s no surprise – “it’s OK to be white” perfectly expresses the sense of white victimhood that pervades white supremacist movements that see any demand for racial justice as an attack on white identity.'

I have a policy of not hating humanity, but when beer availability and habitat destruction are in the same ballpark, I am tested.
