Rights and Accountability

Angel Mills makes a case for the Gaming Community to be aware of our rights and accountability as citizens. Minorities are not always the "tail wagging the dog" and those who like role-playing games are no exception. Be careful. Be wise. Ask yourself, how well does your own family appreciate your hobby? How well might a stranger? How about an off-duty police officer? Be safe, folks.
update: I wanted to say something else about this.
I'm a bit cranky about censorship and rigid societies in general . . . but my comments about gamers being safe are because I don't trust non-gamers to have common sense, or a sense of humor, or a respect for eccentricity. Mundane folks cherish their calm world. They get very whacky when you challenge that world.
