ditto what you said, conlite. I was so enthusiastic about mine when I first got it, my friends joked that the keeper company should pay me comission http://www.keeper.com/ http://www.divacup.com/
Robin, you ask a good question and I'm sorry I didn't clarify this in my original post. The technical definition of a zionist is not simply a Jew; but a Jewish nationalist (i.e., a supporter of Israel). It does not only refer to Israeli citizens; any Jewish person anywhere in the world who supports...
Yes, that is true toodlin-- you make a good point. However, I think that A) most Americans think of "Zionist" as simply an old-fashioned, antiquated word for Jew (like an old white lady calling a black person "colored"), and B) most American Jews are in fact pro-Israel when you come down to it....
saying that the world's most powerful institutions are owned by the zionists is not the same as saying there are a lot of black basketball players. it's the same as saying that the government is secretly run by the gay mafia (which I know sounds hilarious to us; but there are people who say it and...
yeah, your school environment sounds like it was really repressive, to say the least-- I had a much more nurturing environment in which to flower. I'm so thankful for my wonderful school and all the teachers who helped raise me and gave me room to grow. I went to a very progressive private K-12...
you pretty much said it all, jules. I'm also thankful that my sister, who is 12 1/2 and hitting puberty with a vengeance, still thinks I'm cool ;p
...my queer youth group did speaking engagements like this (but low-tech, obviously-- it was the 90's) at other high schools around the state. we got to leave school in the middle of the day to do this, and we got paid for it by the dept of children & family services! just sayin', today's kids...
I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this. It was mike's parents who were anti-tranny; mike himself (who is the one who actually said it) was pro-tranny. he wanted to do it. I just don't see how that's derogatory.
I'll repeat what I said in the last post on this: I said to my friends before the ep was even over, "glee's gonna get it from GLAAD tomorrow." I agree w/ susan sarandon. Glee has never used any queer words in derogatory ways; the fact that they use them at all is good for America,...
I said to my friends before the ep was even over, "glee's gonna get it from GLAAD tomorrow." I agree w/ susan sarandon. glee has never used any queer words in derogatory ways; the fact that they use them at all is good for America, especially the parts where they don't hear queer words used in a...
but if it comes down to it, I will obvs be checking in here. eeeesh I'm scared...
I hope you're all celebrating and enjoying each other's camaraderie. having community IS a huge big deal when you're in a minority (or several overlapping minorities), and I know how much it meant to me to be part of a queer youth group in high school. it had just started when I joined; we were a...
cheers
okay, reality check: not everything good can happen at once. we will have to keep fighting, probably forever, for justice for everyone. one of the most famous Talmudic quotes (part of the canon of Jewish holy writings) about social justice says, "it is not your duty to complete the work, yet...
"I don't want to become a proficient liar." katie is representing us with such eloquence! WIN.
woot woot, I <3 brooklyn girls is back!!! I was so demoralized when we didn't get one last year. what is brooklyn w/o brooklyn girls? WINNNN. in case I didn't say it loud enough: BROOKLYN, BIOTCH!
...I love that r-mad referred to the moderate, pro-gay rights republicans at the end as being "out as moderates." the rest is still pretty fucking scary...
it was freshman year for me, but yeah; we are totally the same gay age (and basically the same actual age). I realized today that this marks the first time in my life I can say that I've been out for more than half my life! cool beans for us, eh? ;p
just ignore this...was trying to reply to jules...
jules, I think you and I are in a little gay huddle together-- is this the '93-'94 school year you're talking about? if so, we can celebrate our homoversary together ;p
