I have to side with Jessica here.*Big confession on my part*
I have an aversion to trans folks. But it is a visceral reaction inside of me. But guess what I don't actually dislike them or anything. I in fact stand up for their rights and all. I found the aversion unacceptable and forced myself to get to know some folks from that community and to fight it. I never want to be that way and even though I don't really know where the ingrained reaction came from in the first place, I decided I wasn't going to let it rule my actions. Because that is not who I am and what I want to be. Does that make me transphobic? Maybe not sure but I am certainly not going to let it stay that way.
To wrap it up actions do speak louder than internal feelings.
Back where I grew up in New Brunswick we had the Maliseet tribe. They had a legend of the little people who lived along the river in small holes. The Maliseet would trade with the little people who were about as tall as a mans knee. The little people were apparently known for odd rituals and the gift of not being seen when they wanted to, even in broad daylight. They had a side of trickery to them as well, they would braid peoples hair into elaborate shapes when they were asleep. They loved the smell of sweet grass as well and could always be coaxed out of hiding by burning it. The maliseet said that the little people started to leave after colonists started to arrive, and went away completely after dams were built in the river and changed the river so much.

I really wish I could financially afford to buy more minis. But in reality it is usually just one case with the gargantuan incentive and every now and again 2 cases. Also because I have a large established minis set the builder sets has as of yet been unable to help me build anything. And buying minis I don`t need is a bit frivolous, as I already have opening parties with every new case that arrives in which I give away the minis I don`t need from the case. That being said you produce a townsfolk builder set and I will buy a case of that no problem maybe 2.
I agree the builder sets are awesome especially for beginner GMs who want to build up their mini collections. I however haven`t bought them only because I don`t need them. I will buy a case of every new set however and with the Wrath of the Righteous minis I will be getting 2 cases as I will be running that game fairly soon. (January)
I also hate gender policing. What affects me more is enforced stereotypes. See I am gay and have a husband, I don't have a lilt in my voice I am not effeminate at all (and have no problem to those who are), I was raised a s a farm boy who played football and listened to country music. To this day I am just a usual guy personality and it freaks out every person who finds out I'm gay. I get a lot of "No Way, you can't be." or really freaked out guys who never saw it coming. Hey guys I got news for you, personality and homosexuality are not always related!!!!!
Umm for those of you questioning whether you could bring back Aroden with a simple True Ressurection, I have a logic question for you. Iomedae was the divine servant of Aroden she was a deity at the time of his death, and know what Iomedae stands for do you not think if she could bring him back she wouldn't? Do you not think that if Iomedae knew what happened to Aroden she would stay idle about it? James am I making any sort of logical sense?
Conversation between me and my friend Vanessa.

My view on Homosexuality in Golarion.
These are just my personal perceptions of the setting and my commentary. Feel free to discuss.
Funniest conversation came up in game. My character is a LG Cleric of Iomedae of traditional Cheliaxian descent. So he is openly gay a very masculine character and recently while visiting his mother she mentioned a certain girl he should marry.
Just wanted to give a shout out to you guys and gals. August was a hard month for you, Gencon was hectic as usual and the August orders were really long and hard work to get out. I know you Customer Service crew took a beating from undeserved tongue lashings, and tireless work, and you warehouse crew worked extra hours to get stuff out the door. So I will try and be at Paizocon 2014 and I owe all of you a round of drinks. And I hope you all know despite the inordinate amount of complaining you had to deal with this month you are appreciated.
My friends who attended Cornell couldn't stand to work there for long post-grad because of the isolation. It has a hella high suicide rate. I think they just fenced in a campus bridge this last school year because of so many jumpers. Gorgeous but isolated is the verdict.
You`ve never lived in Newfoundland :P

I am just saying this because if Cornell University has the large bird research going on then they are likely the ones to be hiring is all. And there will be a glut of bird research happening in the gulf of Mexico, and if I know Texan mindset ( I really don`t) they would want the research to be done by them.

If we ended up in New York State, it would likely be at Cornell, as they are the biggest bird research University in the Northeast.
Well my husband is a seabird researcher and you guys are on the gulf of Mexico, researchers jobs could definitely crop up especially after the BP disaster in the gulf affecting wildlife. So you never know.
The only response is you definitely have a right to vent. But I don`t think this thread is the correct place to do so, only because this is in the Customer Service forum, posts here are expected to have an official response from the customer service folks or are directed at them. This is why I made my dowsing the flames type post, only because people may not realize these posts are going directly to the eyes of Customer service personnel.
Man guys, I get being disappointed, with not getting your shipping email I didn`t get mine and I live in another country (Canada) and I have subscribed since basically the beginning (AP Volume 6), but give the folks a break. They have publishers and developers helping out in the warehouse to correct it. They have made repeated apologies, and are doing their best. I don`t see how giving them crap over something they have little control over at this point will help. I will say as a subscriber for many years that this is the exception not the rule. And Paizo staffers, you guys do what you need to do, and I`ll still be patient, don`t kill yourselves with labour and no worries cause I know I for one will still be a subscriber and fan in the morning. And customer Service folks I hope there weren`t to many cranky folks bringing you down, I`ve been there and know you are appreciated. Same to you warehouse folks and all paizo staffers.
And it is official no shipping notice for me. Likely Monday it looks like.*Sigh*
O well back to video games for me, and continued mantra of patience.
Also this weekend is the celebration of my 30th birthday even though that doesn`t happen until the 31st of August. I will try and be positive and happy with that, I get to have lobster this weekend :)
Already looking at flights for future FAWTLcon options. Not actually that expensive 500-600 and I`d be there. Another 1000 for hotel food and a souvenir or 2. Doable.Edit: That is if you guys would have me there :P
