two important things

One is funny-important, the other is real-important.

Funny first: Uwe Boll has said he’ll stop making movies if a million people ask him to. Last I checked, we were up to 134,679. Spread the word.

Now the real: Joss Whedon posted an impassioned essay some time back, about the “honor killing” of Du’a Khalil Aswad, and the still-pervasive problem of misogyny and violence against women. This inspired a group of people to create the anthology Nothing But Red, a set of works responding to those issues. The color pdf is $5.95, and the b&w trade paperback $15.95, with profits going toward Equality Now. Spread the word about this, too. To quote Joss: “Because it’s no longer enough to be a decent person. It’s no longer enough to shake our heads and make concerned grimaces at the news. True enlightened activism is the only thing that can save humanity from itself.”
