Those of you who check this place regularly may have noticed that I have been…well, mostly absent, for the past few weeks.
Without going into detail, life is sucking out loud at the moment.
Among other things, I’m in the midst of the worst reading slump I remember–ever.
I have not read anything new since the last TBR Challenge book I reviewed, Boots & Bagdes, sometime mid-May. As if that wasn’t bad enough, I haven’t been able to read anything–at all–since mid-June.
For someone who usually reads four to five books a week, this has been hell.
In desperation, I looked up audiobooks.
So we keep hearing how the Boy Scouts of America, in their infinite assholery, are so afraid of homosexuality that, while they may admit boys who identify as gay, they will not–I repeat, will not!–accept adult gay men within their leadership.
In other words: give us your money for twelve years, then fuck off, you (insert homosexual slur of choice here)!
The Girl Scouts of America? They will accept not only girls of all colors and religions, they also accept girls who identify as lesbians, and they welcome trans girls.
Checking out #notchilled, I’ve become aware that, as of June 30th, 2015, Ellora’s Cave main website is down.
Or, to be precise, http://www.ellorascave.com/ takes you to this:
After the truly horrible attacks on racial, and ethnic, and gender minorities in the United States of this past year, I am feeling so relieved and happy that the Supreme Court finally–finally!–ruled that the civil institution of marriage is a civil right, and that therefore, sexual orientation and gender identification have fuckall to do with it!
This is only a start, and it is sure to be challenged by all the assholes who honestly think that only they, privileged majority that they are, should have rights. (May they rot in everlasting hell, amen.)
