PINNED POST

I am a cranky, liberal, intersectional feminist who has no time for bullshit. Do not comment with unsolicited advice, 'splaining, derailments, unnecessary pedantry, bigotry, come-ons, or other assorted crap in my space. All such comments are at risk of deletion without warning, bitingly expletive-laden retorts, and/or blocking.

I owe you nothing. Freedom of speech is not a mandate to be heard.

Now if you can behave, come on in because there's cake and snark and geeklove.

I used to have several opt-in notify circles but G+ killed that. I do not run collections because they have poor functionality that I'm not going to rehash here.

Now that G+ doesn't let me see if a given person has me in circles or not - a sure-fire way to identify drive-by trolls - and has taken away my ability to limit comments to Extended Circles, all while still failing to grant users reasonable methods of controlling trolls, I have decided to set my posts to circles only for commenting. I'm just too tired to deal with endless bigots and bullshit. I apologize if this means nice people I don't have in circles can't comment anymore, but I'm just tired of it.

In fact I'm getting really sick of G+ in general and posting on FB more (https://www.facebook.com/kim.chapman.96199). FB is evil, but functional. G+ is broken unless you're a straight white guy.

If you read this far and like geeky feminist romance, congratulations, here's a coupon for $1 off my novel Finding Gaia at Smashwords. It's also available at Amazon but they don't let me make coupons.

Promotional price: $3.99
Coupon Code: AC26H
Expires: December 31, 2018

Peo: "I learned the word MORBID in English class and now I'm going to use it. A lot."

"The only way to enforce seismic, cultural change in the way men relate to women is to draw a line deep in the sand and say: This is what we will no longer tolerate. You’re either with our bodies or against our bodies. The punishment for harassment is you disappear. The punishment for rape is you disappear. The punishment for masturbation in front of us is you disappear. The punishment for coercion is you disappear."

THIS.

And if you're a dude worried that your awful past will come back to haunt you...

1) Wahh wahh that shared past haunts your victims daily, no sympathy left for you, sorry.

2) Well then be proactive and step up now and publicly admit what you did. Don't put the onus on your victims to have to come forward and be media slammed. Step up, take responsibility apologize properly, give yourself no cookies for any of this, step down, take a break, and come back later as a force for good or stay away. And if your victims do come forward, apologize again and support them in the press and elsewhere.

Because if you really "didn't mean to" and "know better now" then you should adult up and speak out instead of waiting to see if your victims have the energy to name you first. Kind of hard to believe those statements when someone else put the spotlight on you instead of you proactively stepping into it yourself.

Want to help me feel better today while I'm sick? Want to give me a birthday present? Want to save bit on hot geeky feminist romance? Need some escapism from your Thanksgiving holiday full of relatives spewing hate speech?

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN FOLKS! FOR ONE WEEK ONLY, Finding Gaia HAS AN 80% OFF COUPON SO YOU ONLY PAY US$0.99!

The coupon only works at Smashwords because other online stores are poopyheads and don't let me do that. So while you can also buy it at Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008K82BWE/) and elsewhere (see http://findinggaia.com/book/), if you want the 99 cent price you need to get it at Smashwords. Which is better anyway because they have ALL major ebook formats, you own it forever, and there's no DRM.

So go to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/180554 and use code LR77M before the end of November 30.

"BUT KIM!" I hear you cry, "I have already purchased it and I still want to give you a birthday gift!" That's easy too: just post a review on Smashwords, Amazon, or anywhere else that you fancy. And tell friends! Share this coupon! Or you can even buy a copy for a friend using Smashwords' gifting system.
