Imagine that there's a popular brand of cherry bubblegum. There's nothing harmful in the formula, it's a perfectly normal candy treat, the company behaves ethically.
For some reason, you run the numbers, and this brand of gum very strongly correlates with suicide and self-harm.
There's no explanation why - the gum is not addictive or psychoactive, there's nothing in the advertising or marketing that would incite people to hurt themselves... nevertheless, the stats are clear.
What do you do?
Heads up, I will be running a one-shot tabletop game on my Picarto channel on Friday July 3rd, around 7pm Eastern. We will drop links to donate to #BLM and associated causes, but the game itself will be about a circus troupe that can tie into the last fading vestiges of the world's magic as they travel around 1930's America, putting on shows, dealing with The Great Depression... and possibly dealing with the few monsters who also remain. Hope to see you there!
So hey, I have a Pillowfort now!
....hopefully I remember to cross-post stuff there more than I do here.....
Hey, Patreon patrons! I just made a new boardgame and posted it in printable pdf form, just for you! It's called SHWOOP!
Available in both colour and B&W. Enjoy!
Women still make less than men.
Women are a minority in the trades, STEM fields, and leadership positions.
Women are disproportionately the targets of abuse and violence.
Women are subject to harsher social pressures.
Happy #InternationalWomensDay. There's still work to do.

I am absolutely recommending this comic. The art is stellar, the roleplaying mechanics are clear, the worldbuilding is fantastic... anyone who's into fantasy tabletop RP should read this!
