My friend Ken Burnside is on the right-hand side of the political spectrum — and yet we get along. I often say that I wish more on the right were like him, and he says the same of me and the Left. smile emoticon He unfairly has gotten guff for having been chosen as part of the “Puppies” slate in the last Hugos (despite the fact that his piece was definitely worth being on the ballot).
He has posted this about the harassment-in-tabletop-gaming issue, clearly demonstrating that this SHOULDN’T BE a partisan “culture war” issue. I sincerely hope that his “tribe” (as he refers to it in the opening) listens to him, and takes his message to heart.
It is definitely worth your time to read.
