Out and Proud.

I don't shy away from expressing my views, but I generally put my overtly political posts under the fold because some of my readers get the vapors if exposed to opposing viewpoints in their fluff and in any event, the blog is usually about fluff.

Occasionally though one or two things pops up that  are political and yet need to be read.

This is one of those times.

Sarah Hoyt has generally stayed away from politics on her main blog but recently posted some things that made some of her views known.

This has caused some of her readers concern.

In this fairly epic post she responds to her "concerned" readers.

Oh, do read the whole thing.

1 On the other hand, I went out and bought half a dozen of her books. (They're Baen ebooks so they're pretty cheap.)  Not sure I like the heroine of her Darkship Thieves, though; I've gone back to reading Elizabeth Moon's Hunting Party for now.

2 The heroine of Darkship is supposed to be one of those people who starts out obnoxious and gets better. (Same with the hero, actually.)

3 Yes, Athena and Kit both start off as kind of rough characters, but as they develop they become both more interesting and likeable.  I found the last half of Darkship Thieves to be almost a completely different book from the first half, and much better.  Darkship Renegades looks to be interesting, the free teaser chapters end on quite the cliffhanger.
