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.

Well, since you're not spouting hate and filth I think I can agree to your terms. However, I must say one thing: UPPERCASE WORDS BWAHAHA! ;)

THE KENOSHA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT is forcing Ash Whitaker and other transgender students to wear badges of shame the same as the Nazis did and ISIS would.

I think getting other students to wear yellow stars and pink triangles would get the point across.

"Perseverance is key. Learn how to say no when you WANT to say no. I used to always consider the person first when it came to my craft, but through time I realized that I need to be selfish, especially when it comes to my craft, ’cause at the end of the day it’s got my name it and I’m responsible for what I put out there, and you have to be 100% happy with what you put out there. Always put you first because no one has your back better than you do."

"massive"? No question, there was a walkout, but I fear that this article exaggerates for effect.

Had a great time playing games with my niece and nephew tonight. The Star Wars dice game is like Farkle. They were a little hesitant of Love Letter at first, because of the premise, but really enjoyed trying to figure out who held which cards - Raja was the best at figuring it out, even if he didn't always win the round. Tara was trying to multi-task, reading her library book in between turns. Tomorrow maybe we'll play Zombie Dice.

Really tired of the "I was a fan of <insert fandom here> before <arbitrary time that makes me feel superior>" posts.

We don't need gatekeeping in geekdom. It's not about who liked what first, or shouldn't be. Be happy you've found your tribe, and celebrate what you love with others who also love it.

I don't ever try to be a gatekeeper, but I do claim bragging rights that the only time in my life that I was ever ahead of a trend was on the whole "adult coloring book" thing.

This dress is from a recent excavation of Viking age (around 10th Century) clothing from a chamber grave in Pskov, Russia. Since there were only a few pieces of the actual dress that survived through the years, even the schol...

"Jane Doe found herself hopelessly trapped in a bizarre plot pulled from a Kafka novel," the lawsuit reads. It claims authorities feared she would flee before testifying against her rapist.

That is disgusting. A clear civil rights violation.

As an artist, what can I consider if I want to de-objectify and add power to female characters? A visual guide by Eisner nominee Renae De Liz.

I think they didn't want to change the iconic costume.

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.
