girl scouts are letting in trans* girls and letting girls replace God with whatever they want in the pledge, also they use cookie income to support abortion and LGBT agendas
boy scouts are just now allowing gays in, officially in january, but gay leaders are still banned and they’re talking about segregation on camping trips, with gays and straights in different tents. also they still ban atheists,
girl scouts: 10000 boy scouts: 0
To be fair, I did have a girl scout leader once tell me that all religions were welcome but atheists couldn’t join, but I’m almost certain it was just that one person being an ass. Still a pretty shitty thing of her to do, to tell me I wasn’t welcome…
But my best friend has been a life-long girl scout and had an openly gay leader for quite a while, which is freaking awesome. Now they’re a leader, and invited me to be a co-leader—and we’re both gay and genderqueer! Girl Scouts may have a few flaws, but is definitely fucking awesome…and Boy Scouts can pretty much go fuck itself.
I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.
This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.
how namco high do you even have to BE
Suddenly getting emotional about tiny adorable birds.
I wonder if any other moment of my life can ever live up to the feeling of holding a hummingbird.
note to self: don’t be sad
someday you might see a long-tailed tit
someday you might meet a long-tailed tit up close
a perfect bird
Totally working on The Trial again wow hopefully I can finish at least another chapter.
the thing is though i dont think i’ve ever met a single dude who genuinely made an effort not to be misogynistic but still actually takes offense when a woman says “urg, men”
and pretty much every white person who is able to recognise and unpack their privilege gets what i mean when i say “urg, white people”
and straight people who are legit supporters do not get huffy when i say “urg, straight people”
and like im cis, but when trans people say “urg, cis people” im not horribly wounded
because when you’re aware of the system you also understand that it’s not about you
and i understand that nobody hates me for being cis, they hate the power that i have over them because im cis (or light-skinned, or able-bodied, etc)
like remember that quote that was like “no, i didn’t say all white people, but since that’s what you took away from it, yes, all white people”? pretty much, the more angry and confrontational you are about blanket comments, the more those comments are directed at you
which makes them a really convenient and effective thing
Scops and I.
