Inspirational Equality - UPDATE

Yet another round of new wording has been proposed for consideration:

"Each competitor in a Royal List must be fighting for a prospective consort of the opposite sex unless the Crown has elected to permit a competitor to fight for a prospective consort of the same sex. No one may take part in the list as both competitor and also consort.”

The reasoning can be found in this article:

Again, send your comments to the BoD at comments AT sca DOT org by DECEMBER 1.

Gay Art with Medieval and Japanese themes.

Check this out!



Gay Art with Medieval and Japanese themes.

An artist I watch, named Felix d'Eon, makes some lovely paintings depicting gay men and youth in beautiful medieval and early Japanese scenes. Thought I would share some links. Most of his images can be purchased as prints and I believe if you watch him regularly originals can be purchased from his site.

the above images are from his deviantart. His website listed below features many more paintings. Be forewarned, most of his Japanese images are explicit ;)

2 Pennsic issues

Pennsic War

2 Pennsic issues

Greetings! Pennsic is less than 3 months away! (Gasp!) :)

First, I'd like to send out yet another call for a Dance Master for the Clan Blue Feather Ball, which is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 7. Please contact me if you are interested, or if you know someone who might be interested that I could contact.

Second, I'd like to propose a Clan Meeting on the 2nd Saturday, August 4. Lots of interesting things to discuss and update on, not the least of which is the same-sex monarch proposal from the BoD. We'd be happy to host at the encampment unless someone else would like to volunteer or suggest another space.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year!

Dance Master at Pennsic

OK, folks, I'm thinking ahead to Pennsic. We're looking for a Dance Master for the Blue Feather Ball, which again is being planned for the 2nd Tuesday night of War (this year August 7). If anyone wishes to volunteer, or can recommend someone to ask, please let me know. The dancing consists of the latter couple of hours of the Ball.

Thanks in advance!

Same-sex monarchs - Bod proposes new language, want feedback

SCA



Same-sex monarchs - Bod proposes new language, want feedback

As noted in the Inspirational Equality Facebook group, the Board of Directors released this information:

At the Oct 2011 Board meeting, in response to a formal request from An Tir and a substantial amount of related correspondence from our membership, we committed to crafting proposed language to allow same-gender consorts at the Crown/Coronet List level to send out for commentary. This topic is clearly emotionally charged for many people, whether for or against the change. We do not have clear direction from a majority of participants based on either the Census data or the correspondence received to date.

The Board therefore solicits commentary on the following potential language change to its governing documents in hopes of eliciting commentary and direction from the membership:

Current language:
Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender.

Proposed Language:
Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender. Crowns may permit entry into the Royal Lists by same-gender couples.

Comments on this proposal are due by April 1, 2012 (to comments AT lists DOT sca DOT org). Please use the title "Same-Gender Consort Proposal" in the Subject line.


Personally I think it's sloppy English, confusing wording, and all in all a poor compromise (a la "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"). Whatever you think, by all means give your feedback!

Also, a new petition has been set up if you want to sign it:

Lawsuit settlement information

SCA

Lawsuit settlement information

From the Bod:

"Yesterday evening an announcement was made by the Board of Directors of the Society for Creative Anachronism outlining financial concerns created by a long standing lawsuit and the settlement thereof.

Two PDF files or WORD Documents are available for your perusal at:

http://www.sca. org/BOD/announce ments/settlement .html

Our hope is that you will read them over carefully at your leisure.

The first, 'Announcement from the Board and Officers of the SCA,' deals with the background of the lawsuit and the actual settlement.

The second, 'FAQs about the Settlement,' is presented as questions and answers about the settlement, the impact the settlement will have on land groups and how each of us can become better informed or have our concerns addressed."

The jist of it is the civil lawsuit is being settled for $1.3M, but the lawsuit against the insurance companies to pay the legal fees is ongoing. The SCA is going to bill each kingdom 18% of its monies to cover both the settlement and the ongoing lawsuit, with the proviso that if the insurance companies are held liable the kingdoms will get at least some of that money back.

It's a nasty business, but personally I think this is the best way to put this behind us and move forward.
