itch.io are hosting a big Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds

By - | Views: 17,975

With the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade in the USA that threatens to remove access to abortions a bunch of indie developers have pulled together to make an Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds on itch.io.

Much like itch.io did with previous charity bundles like for Racial Justice and Equality, Palestinian Aid, Ukraine Relief and others all the funds will be going to select charities and you can donate while also grabbing a big bunch of games, game assets, physical games to print and much more.

100% of the proceeds from this bundle will go to the National Network for Abortion Fund's Collective Power Fund, which moves money directly to abortion funds across 20+ U.S. states, with a particular focus on the South and Midwest (where it is often most difficult to get access to abortions). NNAF’s partnerships with these abortion funds provide direct resources and funds to many of the people most impacted by Roe v. Wade, towards immediate action.

Some of what's included is pretty great too including:

  • Haque
  • Pushamo
  • Hypnospace Outlaw
  • Bleed
  • Bleed 2
  • Buck Up and Drive!
  • Calico
  • …and the list goes on

It has a minimum payment of $10 but you can donate more and they will be adding more items to the bundle up to July 6th. The bundle runs for another 9 days.

Quoting: 14I am against the cultural trend of pom poms for everything, and if you are against something, be silent. That is dangerous.
There's nothing dangerous about a Linux gaming site disallowing inflammatory, non-gaming related topics of discussion, if only to keep the community welcoming and inclusive. No need for the drama. Surely we can agree that you're not owed a platform and/or an audience whenever and wherever you decide to voice an opinion.

If you feel like your cause is just and important, by all means, protest and discuss to your heart's content, but please find a more suitable venue for it. Maybe one of the gazillion political discussion platforms out there, or your local pub.
I quite disagree. That is as close to saying "get out if you disagree; you must go elsewhere and either speak in an echo chamber or a forum where only certain types of people congregate," yet anyone who supports the topic is allowed a voice EVERYWHERE it is mentioned.

If controversial topics cannot allow simple opposing opinions, then I say comments should not be allowed on those publications.

Nothing I have said can be considered inflammatory and I never said that I support emotionally heated arguments. Please don't stretch what I said beyond what I actually said.

Except it's always certain types that make a stink about certain topics. Even though the site has nothing to do with it, you almost surely encounter right wing trolls on every article even remotely connected to the fake outrage they spread. Some of us are living in fascist countries and it's really annoying to encounter it on GoL.

I apologize to the mods if they have to moderate me again because of this, but it is even more annoying on this site, because it's well moderated and the users are generally more tame than the average "gaming" forums or phoronix.

Well, this topic is a tough one to moderate, honestly. But (I think) we're generally very light-handed on the GOL team. Here's the entries from the rules section which apply most:

Quote- Politics is important, it affects everything and everyone. However, be mindful of what you talk about and spread. If it is likely to cause arguments, don't post it. Most of the time, political chat isn't really needed here. Obviously if we cover something political, that is inviting respectable debate keeping all the other rules in mind.

- Think "Would I say this in public to people I've never met before?" if the answer is no, think about it.

- Try to remain polite and do not attack others. Using hostile language towards others, and name calling are absolutely not needed. Doing so will result in warnings or bans without a warning if it's especially offensive without a damn good reason.

- Any form of hate speech or discriminatory speech is not allowed. That includes racism, sexism, being toxic on gender topics and so on. We're an inclusive community, remember that. Be nice, get along.
That guides me when I consider if I need to edit or delete a comment. Now, I support reproductive rights for women, so the question is almost whether I consider opposing views to be hate speech.

14, you seem to be against reproductive rights. I have no idea why that might be, but just stating your position isn't going to fall into the "hate speech" category. I'm not neutral on this subject, obviously, but bear in mind that in the other thread on this subject, we moderated both sides of the argument, and mostly those who fell on my side of the camp, simply because it's hard to "argue" about this stuff without frustration and anger leading to name calling.

So in summary, moderation is hard, but I think we mostly get it right.

I am opposed to aborting what is most likely the eventual human life with some exceptions. If left unimpeded it were to have a life, it is worth protecting and having its own rights.

Now, I don't really consider it worth my time and energy to really argue and change minds in this setting. But I do believe it's important to have some representation. It's important for people reading through comments to see at least a couple people speaking up that they agree with.
