People ask me – usually rhetorically – When’s the last time you’ve ever seen a Lefty who likes the Second Amendment?… and then they look shocked when I blink and say Umm, last Saturday? Seriously, join the SCA and you’ll end up seeing every counterculture fusion there is. Gun-toting hippies. Neo-pagan Republicans. Women who might think that your science fiction jokes are funny.
I’m off to an SCA event today – medieval recreationist, for those who don’t recognize the acronym – so I thought that I’d load up a couple of poems that I’ve done in the past. I’m fairly fond of these; I think that they came out well.
As exemplified by CNN (H/T: Protein Wisdom), which tells us that men see bikini-clad women as objects. This has been seized upon by large sections of the blogosphere as an excuse to show cheesecake, of course: fortunately, as a SF/fantasy/SCA geek I have a secret weapon.
