Dear people who encounter my corner of the Plusverse,

If a stranger walked into your house uninvited, shouted obscenities, threw things about, and left (or worse, got into an argument with other strangers who also showed up), you would probably not take kindly to it.

It's likewise unsettling to have someone you've never interacted with post a comment on G+ with lots of UPPERCASE and profanities, without so much as an acknowledgment that there is a person who posted that thing causing so much ire.

If you come onto one of my posts, guns blazing, expect to be blocked. Because you're being rude. And my portion of the Plusverse is not a democracy. I block people who are unable or unwilling to engage in civil discourse. This means I will not tolerate people attacking one another, making prejudiced comments, etc.

TL;DR -- don't be a dick.

I missed this post initially, but totally agree. The sorts of people who like to search out random articles to be an asshole in are the people who like to scream "freedom of speech" without actually understanding what it means and where it actually applies.

I checked out the Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook from the library today. Quite a dense tome, I've given it a brief flip-through, and was a bit overwhelmed at the amount of information in it. Not in the mood for intense reading at the moment, but I look forward to spelunking into it at some point.

I've been tossing around the idea of writing a few fiber book reviews on my blog. Gives me some writing practice, on a topic I know a little about. And I already have opinions about some of these books. Plus, now that the library system includes all the public libraries in the state, the available books to borrow & peruse are wide and varied.

Biblical marriage is a man arranging to buy a girl from her father for an agreed upon purchase price (Genesis 29:18).
Biblical marriage is a wife “giving”, regardless of her maid servant's wishes, her servant to her husband as a “wife” for sex and procreation (Genesis 16:2-3, Genesis 30:3, Genesis 30:9, etc.)
Biblical marriage is a raiding party murdering the fathers and mothers and brothers and sisters of a people but saving the young virgins because they want “wives” [i.e. women to capture and rape, legally] (Judges 21:10-14)
Biblical marriage is a raiding party lying in wait to capture more women as “wives” to legally rape (Judges 21:20-24)
Biblical marriage is a victim being forced to marry her rapist with no hope of divorce [but don't worry – her father is suitably compensated in cash for the trouble, and this is only valid if the woman is not already another man's property...so relax, no property rights are violated by this arrangement!] (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)
Biblical marriage is selling your daughter as a slave to be given to her owner or owner's son for sexual exploitation as a “wife” [though denied the minimal protections of a wife] (Exodus 21:7-11)
Biblical marriage is one man taking multiple, even hundreds, of wives and concubines (see: David, Solomon, Jacob, Abraham, etc.)
Biblical marriage is a woman as property whose own happiness is inconsequential, but whose property status is absolute (see: David and Michal)

I was with you until the "all religions are the same and people of faith are immature" bit.

Great words from +Chuck Wendig on abusing people online, and the #AskELJames tag's utter toxicity. 

I find a certain amount of sad irony in watching thousands of people gleefully pile on and insult a woman because she "glorifies abuse".

I'm watching the #AskELJames hashtag like a stock ticker reporting on the market of online human shame, and it's fascinating in the way that watching hyenas eat a sick lion is fascinating. I don't ...

I've set up a collaborative crochet art project in order to channel my own grief, provide an outlet for the affected crochet community and honor the life, creativity and work of Marinke (Wink) from A creative being​ who tragically took her own life. Please share.

The current project on the hook: a stole for my sister, who is visiting next month.

Yarn: Good for Ewe (http://goodforeweyarn.com/) Kettle Steps (40% superwash merino, 40% baby llama, 20% nylon) in Enchanting Emerald

The stitch pattern is from +Dora Ohrenstein​'s Isolde Top ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/isolde-top), minus the shaping and ruffle yarn.

Not only were the bereaved LGBT partners denied funeral arrangement rights, they were also denied

social security benefits,

next-of-kin hospital visitation rights,

spousal funeral and bereavement leave,

next-of-kin status for emergency medical decisions,

government death benefits

and inheritance rights.

Today is a good day. Today, love can extend from life to death.

Today, America recognizes that those who love us in life can ALSO be the ones who take care of us in death.

Indeed. This is one big reason it matters. Those who are affluent can simulate a lot of this with contract law, but those who aren't mostly can't.

I make a lot of public posts. I reserve the right to block people who engage in abusive language, or who tick me off. This is not a matter of censorship, I am not a government entity preventing you from speaking in a public space. This is a matter of active curation. If you don't like it, you can keep your comments to other spaces in the Plusverse and across the internet. It's a big place, I promise.
