+Lisa Padol Wanna get 2x the textless version for Indy and beyond?
 
Are you heading to Indianapolis this year for Four Days of the Best Gaming? Would you like to be excruciatingly clear to every vendor and restaurant you patronize while there exactly what you think about SB101?  Here's my strategy.

The shirts are available here: http://dumbest.spreadshirt.com

Kindly reshare, and I'm always interested in hearing feedback, so don't hesitate to comment.

I don't undestand how this is an appropriate response to the text of my share.

@merloon: Try "Technical Difficulties"!  It headlined their first albumb, IIRC; they had three classical filks, all titled Technical Difficulties (I think the remaining one was Ode to Joy?

I think it was supposed to refer to both him and the Duck Dynasty guy.
On free speech in general, I still stand by what I said about this cartoon at XKCD doesn't understand free speech—or the difference between legal and moral rights. But it took some discussion in the comments there befor...

Yeah, I thought it was several things, which may've been why it failed for me.

Cute!  Although even for this fast reader, the dialogue often scrolls past to fast to catch; I keep having to go back.

Oh, sure.  But it's worth fixing if there are more videos--there were even a few texts that were up for less than a second.

Er.  Your quotes #1 and #2 from the ACLU are about actually supressing speech.  Not about restricting speech of a particular sort from appearing in, say, an industry magazine (e.g. editorial control).  The "freedom of speech" thing remains bullshit here.

http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2013/12/mn_aclu_explains_why_duck_dynasty_dudes_anti-gay_comments_arent_protected_speech.php

Or to search/replace the money phrase from the ACLU to fit the situation:

Vox Day (or Barry Malzberg) has the right to make whatever sexist comments they make without fear of going to prison for it, however they do not have the right to have their own SFWA column, or to say what they want without negative reactions from SFWA or people in the community.

There you go.
I'll number Scalzi's Ten Things About Petitions and Freedom of Speech without quoting them, because I'm lazy. 1. Like all people who support limiting speech, Scalzi takes a conservative legalistic approach; the ACLU does not...

Dude, my imaginary ACLU can beat your imaginary ACLU with one imaginary fist tied behind its imaginary back.

Oh, sure.  And I could have made it four interlocking circles, labled "contains wine", "contains white wine", and the two "found" circles (and dots for the three wines).

Very fun.  Who was the male voice (unless that was all voice mod) at the end?

Huh--that makes sense.  Human pattern recognition is a funny thing.

How does porn (or prositution, for that matter) differ from any other service job (with an artistic element)?  Or modelling, for that matter?  Either way, you're selling the "use" of your body for some period of time.
I was inspired to write by Elizabeth Stoker's This Duke University Porn Thing, which applies her version of Christian ethics, which I generally like, to the story of Belle Knox, the 18-year-old would-be porn star who has been...

In any field, I think it is generally legally possible (easy, even) to walk away from a contract, forfeiting only what one was to be paid, along with any forfeiture clause that may have been negotiated.

What is fascinating is that as good as this is, I saw Judi sign this this year -- and with her knowing what was coming, it was even better.  The song itself has only gotten better over time, as well.
