One of the great things about miniatures, as a hobby, is that it's an escape from the real world--and a chance to create your own, better world. Nobody wants a political rant. And, while I'm certainly not trying to keep my own views a secret, I also don't think it's appropriate to preach at people. We're all different, we all have different beliefs, and diversity is a wonderful thing. The last thing I would ever want is for someone to feel like they can't be my friend, because we disagree.
But, for informational purposes only, sometimes it's good to share. And some of you might not know about this petition. I, personally, like to know what stores, distributors, and manufacturers support so that I can make my purchases accordingly.
