As the immediate shock regarding the arrest of Pagan author and musician Kenny Klein on possession of child pornography wears off, a wider conversation in the Pagan community on event safety and sexual predators begins. Festival and convention organizers consider possible changes in policies while attendees ask for greater protection. Yet it’s unclear if this focus is a lasting trend or a short lived reaction. MerryMeet, a yearly convention hosted by different Covenant of the Goddess Chapters, and CONvergence, a science fiction and fantasy convention lauded internationally for their anti-harassment policies, offer best practices which aim to protect attendees while still allowing an open, diverse event.

My tumblr posts may also post to my twitter feed. You are welcome to follow me here or there; I don't automatically follow-back, however, and if you appear to be a spammer or a bot, I treat you as such.
While I understand some people's desire for trigger warnings on posts, I rarely use them, as life doesn't come with warning labels, and the one above may be the only one you get from me. I don't delete them in anything I reblog, but as noted, rarely will add one of my own, even for my own triggery issues.
I'm opinionated, have several biases, including the radical notion that politics are, for the most part, evil, and that people, all things being equal, should be treated equally. I link things I find of interest, feel passionately about or think important (or silly) enough to share with others.
I am genderqueer/trans, bisexual, married, a parent and grandparent, of mixed ancestry in which the Scots-Irish genes won in supremacy over most of the rest, a witch, and often a bitch. If any of that bothers you, I'm sure you can figure out where the door you came in is and depart back through it.
- crookedthinking95 asked:Hello Gail! I would like to apologize FOR that Kelly Jacobs person. They found your post because I reblogged it (in agreement with what you were saying). I really enjoy your work, so I'm sad that my first interaction with a writer I really like was caused by someone's ignorance. I'm really sorry, I hope it doesn't cause too much trouble DX.
Not at all! First, not your fault in any way, shape or form. Don’t ’t give it a moment’s thought.
