I’m so annoyed with the whole ‘you can’t hate that character’ attitude because heck— Yes. Yes you can hate a character. And you don’t need some deep as hell reason for it, you can hate a character just because. The only thing you shouldn’t do is be an asshole and trash the character in the tags or to the people who love them, that’s all.

WHERE’S THAT GIF OF THE JUDGE BANGING THE GAVEL AND GOING OOOOOOOOOOH
Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon has died of cancer. :(
July 28, 2014, posted on Facebook by Alex Adler:
Old friends, long time fans, today at 4am Margot breathed easily for the first time in two weeks. Later today, at 10:30am she was pronounced deceased.
Her condition had been getting much worse over the weeks and months and the brain radiation (which she had a treatment of scheduled today, tomorrow, and wednesday) was thought to help her double vision, since it was the cause.
Well, Margot and John both won’t be seeing double anymore, but they will be seeing each other for the rest of time.
With much love and difficulty do I write this,
Her son, Alex
Same, same, I didn’t agree with that; it’s like when people call periods a joyful start to womanhood. Like no, man, it’s fucking awful. But I agree with the sentiment: a lot of specifically brown girls I knew were bullied due to hair to the point of feeling genuinely ashamed of themselves for something they can’t help
Allow me to bombard you with links:
If you’re less of a reader and more of a listener, then I’d suggest Bawdy Storytelling!, if you’re interested in all things Leather, I’ve been told that Leather Ever After is a fun collection of short stories. If you’re looking for sexy submissive times, then Sexy Stories of Submission might be a good thing for you. If you’re wanting more negotating look at things, there’s Playing Well With Others, and for rope The Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage.
For a little more out there, Guy New York writes some sexy, exhibitionist things over on his blog, and recently, he has a book called The Island on the Edge of Normal
The Big Book of Orgasms, Bound For Trouble by Alison Tyler, Slave Girls: Erotic Stories of Submission by D.L. King, The Big Book of Submission by Rachel Kramer Brussel, The Big Book of Domination by D.L. King, Debra Hyde’s books, Nawashi-Jujun by Graydancer are available on kindle pretty cheaply (or for freesies)
Here’s another list of books and agencies: http://lperkinsagency.com/our_books
For straight up blogger writing, I’d recommend:
http://poeticdesires.com/-A wonderful Leather writer, bootblack, painslut, switchy kind of gal, she won the Dirty Pig contest last year at Dark Odyssesy.
http://www.graydancer.com/-Opinions, education, smokin’ hot stories and a damn fine rigger, and educator to boot.
http://quickienewyork.com/-A writer, of sexy exhibitionist things mostly revolving around hot quickies in the bar with some DD/LG scenarios
http://pervocracy.blogspot.com/-One of the most sensible approaches to BDSM, this was my introduction to finding the kink scene, and she breaks things down really well about consent. Amazingly well!
GO FORTH AND READ SEXY BDSM THINGS. Better, BDSM things. Non-abusive psycho BDSM things.
Only one note here: the correct pronouns for Cliff at The Pervocracy are he/him/his.
