It’s so simple and you know it is, you know it is
We can’t be to and fro like this all our lives
Carousel Hazard Necklace!
I was brainstorming what Gentleman Bastard-related jewelry I could make, and Carousel Hazard came to mind! (that’s the game where you drink a random vial of liquid for every hand of cards you lose). So, I put together a vial of a randomly-colored liquid and a couple of cards into the necklace you see here!
It’s for sale at my Etsy shop here. To simulate the nature of this game of chance, your necklace will come with a randomly chosen liquid inside (or, as the french say, chosen “au hasard”). (Don’t worry, it’s all water, but I will choose the color for you randomly unless you ask otherwise).
Also, thank you so much to the number of people who’ve already purchased Locke and Jean necklaces! I really appreciate they popularity these have gotten since I’ve put them onsale.

In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights.
There’s a case in Boston, MA right now in which a rapist is taking advantage of this. He pleaded guilty of rape in 2011 and was sentenced to 16 years probation; however, this sentence includes 16 years of family court as well, which the victim must also attend. He’s using this to sue for joint custody of her child and will only withdraw his law suit if he is free from paying any form of child support. This entire sentence seems like much more of a punishment for the victim than it is for the rapist, and for the state to allow such a thing, the victim is suing.
As stated in the court complaint, “Even if the family court ruled in the [victim]’s favor on issues currently in dispute, such as whether the criminal defendant should be granted visitation rights to [her] child, [she] will suffer harm from the constant threat of new issues arising in family court until her child reaches adulthood, including, for example, efforts by the criminal defendant to seek to modify child support orders and enforce his parental rights at the trial court level and on appeal.”
If this woman is forced to attend 16 years of family court with her rapist, she is not only forced to confront a traumatic event that she should never have to deal with again, but she is subjected to the possibility of losing pieces of her child to him over and over again for all of those years. In addition to this constant state of fear and anguish she would face, just by being sent to something considered ‘family’ court—for her and her rapist—she’s being disrespected and her rape undermined by even the suggestion that this is a family situation. By doing this, the law is making felony into family.
In 31 states, rapists are actually given rights instead of having much of anything taken away. In being given these rights, they are being given the chance to further torment the woman and possibly abuse the child. It is not okay to reward rapists and further punish victims, and the ignorance of rape and how our justice system is handling it needs to turn around.
Please sign this petition to ban rapists from being able to sue for custody rights. This issue is so little known, yet so important, and I don’t know any better way of trying to make this change.
