You Goddamned Gay-Lovin’ Baby-Haters!
I only occasionally check the Kernel… only when I am very, very bored, but one of my campus talk-to’s told me about this, and I just had to face-palm. I mean, seriously. It amazes me how stupid people are. Since when does your belief Christianity define how a country without a state religion should be run? But ah, well. Of course this dude is afraid of transgendered and transexual people being given “special rights”… it’d challenge the monopoly on special rights that Christian[-variant]s have enjoyed since Day One of American History.
Speaking of transgender issues, November 20th is Transgender Day of Rememberance. An email was sent through the OUTsource circuit with names, CODs, and their dates, with a link to the case of Duanna Johnson. Reading about her attitude, pride, and defiance against the local po-po made me smile… but of course bit at my sides to know that such wit and strength was wasted, stolen, and destroyed for no good reason. That I have friends that could meet the same fate for the same reasons absolutely terrifies me… it makes me sick to the heart and head to know I live in a world where people I love are in such danger…
Last on my big gay agenda: HOLY SHIT I NEED TO WRITE MY SW PAPER. Due first thing in the morning. I suppose, with all this, I should be able to write easily on why the GLBT community needs advocates in the field of Social Work, but ease isn’t as much an issue as time. I can’t even start on that til I whip out my German homework, which is due tonight at midnight. There isn’t enough coffee in the world to save me.
Three more days to plow through before my flight out to Tamparrrrgh… two more class days. Once I get this paper done, it’ll be a breeze. A breeeeze right into Kev’s warm, strong, loving and very nommable arms. Arms and hands and smile and gaze and LEIJFLIJGLEIRIEWK!!!1 I start thinking like that, and three small days seem like three months of time between. Hurry hurry. I mean, after I get to sleep tonight, hurry. I don’t mind having the time to wait while I need it to do class-things, hah.
Mmmm… ahhhh. AAAHHH!!
Good news is that I’m only really missing one lecture next week, since everyone else pretty much decided to cancel classes on Monday and Tuesday. German still meets, but it’s a “fun day” where Lissi has decided to have a Q&A and teach everyone to curse in German. On the one hand, I’m glad I’m not missing testable lecture. On the other, GODFUCKINGDAMMIT that’s what I wanted to know most!! XD
