I thought I’d share some awesome art I found while searching inspiration for Nightfire. Hope you enjoy 🙂

You may have heard of the relatively infamous “Proud Whopper” from Burger King (if you haven’t, check it out here). Basically, it’s a whopper wrapped in rainbow paper, with the phrase: “We’re all the same inside”. I love the idea. Some people are criticizing them for being fake activists, and actually not being helpful at all, but I think it’s a nice gesture. I mean, they’re still a corporation. I think this is a great way for them to get involved and show support. It’s under “issues” because I am disgusted by a lot of the reactions (seriously, read them) I think it’s ridiculous, in 2014, people are boycotting BK because of rainbow paper, calling it the “fag burger” or “sodomy burger” (also thought one rebuttal was particularly hilarious, that straight people are a lot more focused on gay sex than actual gays are. It’s true, though. There’s so much more to it than that). Anyways, I won’t get too ranty. Go check it out, and see for yourself. BK: 1 Humanity: -1

I absolutely love this quote. I think it captures my writing style, and writing itself, so well.

Issues

So you may or may not have heard about the controversy this week, over the Supreme Court’s ruling in the “Hobby Lobby” case. Basically, the Supreme Court ruled that companies could deny employees birth control because of the company’s religion. So A: yet another legislation (passed by all men, only one sided with women) regulating women’s bodies, while there remains no legislation regulating men. B: companies allowed to force their religious beliefs on their employees (doubt they’d have the same reaction if it was Muslims forcing employees to cover their hair). And C: companies and sex cells (not even fertilized eggs) are people and have more rights than women. How can you not be upset??

My favorite tweet on the subject: “we have literally arrived at the point where we let party supply stores tell women what to do with their bodies.” – @lawblob Also, if you think we are overreacting, watch this video. It might seem like a small thing, but it is part of decades of fighting for women’s rights, and this is a huge step backwards. It also opens to the doors to all kinds of claims and rights violations on the grounds of “company religion”. Since when is that a thing?
