My lovely friend +Anne Teensma drew this a few months ago. It's a sketch of Kwin, one of my characters from The Dream Sanctum. She's only scary when she's trying to be, though. Honest.

Girl Scouts are pretty great. I'd say that I'd buy cookies out of spite, but let's be honest, I really don't need another reason to buy cookies.

Honestly though, this is great news and I love that they're showing such outward support. Were I a kid growing up now I probably would have had the opportunity to join like I always wanted.

+Brittany Constable Yeah, I sincerely hope this boost in publicity was entirely unintentional on the part of the donor. :P

Somewhere out there are two men named Adam and Steve getting married who are feeling very smug.

YES!

And somewhere, my ninth grade biology teacher, an ardent and vociferous homophobe (and anti-evolutionist, as well, no I have no idea how she functioned without exploding) has just keeled over and is no longer poisoning and harming young people in her care.

+The White House has done a little decorating on their profile. I'm loving it.

That's my California.
California’s anti-vaxxers will no longer be able send their unvaccinated kids to school, if a bill passed by the State Assembly gets signed into law.

On the subject of last night's post, I've gotten to thinking about why people try so hard to deny that things like racism and sexism exist anymore. Erick Erickson and his ilk trying to blame anything but racism for the church shooting, and then John Oliver putting out a video about the harassment women face online only to be called an SJW and other nonsense, just for even acknowledging the existence of harassment.

Do they not want to admit that there's any possibility that they could be racist or sexist (i.e., they see those prejudices in themselves, but it's okay in their case for whatever reason)? Is there more of an ulterior motive, realizing that as long as they deny the existence of that bigotry, it makes it harder to combat?

It just baffles me as to why so many people get angry when you bring up that these problems even exist, never mind any possible solutions.

Of course it's probably not actually a murderer it's probably my dog getting in the garbage but I still have to pull myself out of bed and deal with it.

I was just handed one of these. I... I'm conflicted. And a little scared. Am I brave enough?

I picked up Enterprise again, and I'm almost done with season one. It's kind of growing on me. It has a certain quality exclusive to it that I'm kind of liking. In every other series it's like "Hello we're Starfleet we are advanced and we know things and we're moral and stuff" but with Enterprise it's just like "Hello we're Starfleet and we don't have a clue what we're doing."

This is likely my last post on the subject since I know this subject has been talked to death lately, but I feel like as we move forward it's important to establish our arguments against this mythical "assault on faith" and religious liberty. We're going to hear a lot of that, and we're going to need to combat it.
Those of faith need to understand the limits of their influence and what they should reasonably expect from a country th…

They do.

My point is, don't muddle up the thought process in this matter by saying the law shouldn't follow religion in condoning bigotry -- because what those people do has nothing to do with religion, except in their own minds. (As I indicated, it has little to do with the Bible itself. If they're going to be literal, be literal about all of it.)

Simply leave it as: The law shouldn't condone, much less foster, bigotry.

(Otherwise, also, you leave the door open to permitting bigotry that is not ostensibly based on religion -- which, somehow, I don't think is what you want!)

It's hard to describe how this makes me feel. "Joy" seems inadequate. Just years ago my state, one of the more blue states in the country, initiated Prop 8 which reversed gay marriage. I never, never thought I would see this day so soon. It feels like it's too good to be true. But here we are.

For all the trouble we're going through as a country, I really feel like we're moving in the right direction. This is more powerful, more important and more moving than I can put into words.
 
This was nice to  wake up to! :D
The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the United States in a divided ruling that will stand as one of the major milestones in its 226-year history.

D'you think that with enough support we could get YouTube videos shared on G+ to stop showing up in the YouTube comments of said videos? There is no more powerful dissuasion against me posting videos. You could charge me five bucks to share each video and I'd still prefer that to letting YouTube commenters post on my stuff.

This impresses me so much. This is great art to start, but it gets even better when you realize that this is a top-down view of 1,128,960 blocks in Minecraft -- a new record. It took 23.5 weeks to make. That it includes Kerrigan is just a bonus.

Introduction
Hello! My name is Kay Solo, and if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked if I’m related to Han, I would have a lot of dollars.

I’m just someone who writes for a living, enjoys gaming more than is probably healthy and occasionally takes photographs. I edit, I do other stuff and now I’m blogging on WordPress, though my activity is anything but regular. I love exploring psychology, dreams and sleep, which is part of what inspired one of my book series, The Dream Sanctum. For work I ramble about politics and current events, and I have gotten a surprisingly low amount of hate mail as a result.

I live in Southern California, which means ten months of complaining about the heat, two months complaining about the cold and twelve months complaining about the traffic.

My dislike of the Oxford comma has earned me more enemies than any other opinion, but I hope you like what you see. Thanks for visiting!

You can also find me on Twitter and my personal website.
