Gnomeregan Forever

Well, yeah, I can’t stop cartooning, in a variety of media. Maybe it’s because I have so many ideas, and not all of them are suited for full-fledged stories or novels — so a short little comic is good for a one-shot quickie.  So I not only do the silly Journey strip, I also guest-shot every once in a while on my husband’s World of Warcraft-related comic, Gnomeregan Forever. (though when I do a strip, the title temporarily changes to “The Brotherhood of Iron” — it’s a guild-thing.)

Anyway, along with all the idiocies going on with the GOP’s constant war on women & our reproductive rights & the whole Hobby Lobby nonsense (SCOTUS/SCROTUM is yet another idiotic move — yeah.  Corps don’t have to follow the law if they sincerely believe otherwise)...the International eSports Federation had banned women gamers from the Finnish tournaments of Assembly Summer 2014.  After a HUGE outcry — and Blizzard dropping the hammer on them by saying that IeSF could NOT use Blizz’s games in any tournament that allowed such discrimination — the IeSF reversed the decision, but continues to maintain separate women’s events…on the grounds that women need “safe spaces” to compete.

Safe.

SAFE?!?

We’re talking COMPUTER games, here.  One of which — Hearthstone — is an intelligent strategy game.  WHAT THE FRAK ARE THEY KEEPING US “SAFE” FROM???

I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve been seeing men — and women — gamers claim that women feel “intimidated” by having to compete with men.  My view??
