Cosplay and Sexual Harassment

So my friend turned me on to this awesome article. I am a cosplayer.

Abby Sciuto (Youmacon 2010)

Dumbledore (Youmacon 2011)

Abby Sciuto (ACEN 2010)

Costumes are not consent! Pass it on! The same rules apply at con as the regular world. If you wouldn't do it outside of con, you shouldn't do it at con.

I Really Don't Want To Be That Person...

...But I am. Have fun James Hills who went to Baker College in Flint (aka james.hills.75 on facebook)! I warned you.

Michigan Just Did The Dumbest Thing... the history of dumb things:

They passed HB5711! I am literally crying right now. What the fuck is wrong with these people? I'm moving to Chicago or somewhere not as against my rights. Maybe Windsor, ON.

The Warren Nativity Scene Will Be Going Back Up

Here's the thing: I live in Warren, MI. We have this ugly nativity scene that was put on public property that's been gone for four years, but now it gets put back up.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation sued. The U.S. District Court in Detroit told the family that they couldn't put it up, so they appealed and won. It's like mom saying no, so you go ask dad.

Here's more information on it.

I would write more, but I have finals next week and I need to study.

The Troll in My Western Religions Class

Well, one of the people that I thought wouldn't make it through the semester has stayed in the class. Good on ya, blonde lady! Unfortunately, "guy-with-a-southern-accent-who-reminds-me-of-my-scary-great-uncle" did not make the cut. He stopped coming after the professor admitted to being a secular humanist. Well done!
So yesterday, in class, we were supposed to be studying Islam. I was looking forward to it. Then the conversation got derailed by this Catholic guy in class who apparently wanted to talk about Catholicism. It was like I was living in a Facebook debate. STFU Catholic guy! (Someone called him Captain Catholic. I think that will be his new name forever.) I get that the professor is supposed to shut that shit down, but there is only so much he can do in the face of trolls.

Remember Savita

I had another blog post about the new World War Z movie and how much I hate Brad Pitt ready to go up. Then I heard about Savita.

Her family said she asked several times for her pregnancy to be terminated because she had severe back pain and was miscarrying.Her husband told the BBC the termination was refused because there was a foetal heartbeat.
Savita died on October 28, 2012.
This is what happens when your country makes laws based on a 1,500 year old holy book. People who do not ascribe to that book's teachings get their rights trampled on. This woman was a happy person, excited to become a mother. She and her husband moved to Ireland because of the low infant and mother mortality rate. 
The Irish government and the Catholic Church are responsible for this woman's death.

Gender Neutral Bathrooms...

I was on the news last night!
And my classmates were on Fox!
Here's the Facebook page for that.
I'll try to have a video of that as soon as possible!
EDIT: Here's the video.

So, in case you hadn't read my post about this yesterday, we are trying to get one unisex bathroom in every building on campus. This would make it safer for transgender students at Oakland University, as well as making it easier for people who are handicapped or people with small children that they can't take into gendered bathrooms. This is a win/win for everyone!
