    Here is a great article about the commercialization of Breast Cancer awareness.

    In the wake of Amanda Todd’s death, Slate has an article about a war on 12-year-old girls.

    This speech on gay rights is full of win.

    Lana Wachowski (director of Cloud Atlas, The Matrix) gave a moving speech recently about growing up transgender.

    Tristan Tarwater wrote a cool post today about real monsters in fantasy. I love real monsters, so this made my day.

    Mary Hamilton is amazing and wrote a sweet post about zombie LARP and live-action roleplay in general.

    I love this post by Leigh Alexander about misconceptions regarding diversity in gaming.

    About

    I’m an occasional game illustrator, and game designer, long-time LARPer, and player of tabletop roleplaying games (mostly indie games). I have a terminal addiction to board games. I also play both PC and console games – mainly RPGs of all stripes, but I do enjoy puzzle games like Katamari as well. My main source of gaming notoriety, however, is the feminist gaming blog Go Make Me a Sandwich. In addition to being a cranky feminist blogger, I am a photographer and somewhat half-assed writer living in the wilds of Canada with a wonderful spouse and two slightly broken cats.

    About

    I'm a 25 year old admin assistant from around Pittsburgh, PA. I am married, work and attend college concurrently, and have been tabletop gaming for about 8 years. I blog (very, very periodically), and write unpublished short stories. I play tabletop RPGs, board games, and both casual and RPG video games. I live for the social part of gaming, but do enjoy a good explosion, and am learning the ropes of creating worlds in which people can play.
