Artist Sara “Chip” Nixon (or Chiparoo) made a set of humorous buttons that combine role-playing games and discussions on social values in the SF/F and gamer communities. With pixelated art, they offer a counterpoint to attempts at using “social justice warrior” as an insult. This is what Sara says:
“They’re supposed to be a playful poke at the idea of a Social Justice Warrior. Because why be a Social Justice Warrior, when you can be a Social Justice Rogue? Or a Social Justice WIZARD?!”
Hilarious! And generous – Sara says she will donate the proceeds to charity. She and her pins will be at GeekGirlCon in Seattle this coming weekend, October 11-12th. Oh, if only I weren’t half a continent away!
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
