MicroAggressions

In case you missed it…

Our project was covered a few days ago in this New York Times piece on microaggressions awareness projects on university campuses. Check it out and participate in the dialogue following the piece on our Twitter and Facebook.

Where I live the words: lesbian, gay, and bisexual are used to insult people. Or like, teenagers use them, like, for serious bullying. And i hate how it really feels insulting to be called bisexual because for crying out loud, i /am/ bisexual.

“You shouldn’t have gone alone!” In response to me telling a close male friend of mine a bad experience I had with sexual harassment during a doctors appointment.

“Are you sure you have the right room number? This is the *honors* section.”

My dad jokes with my younger sister that he remembers selling Girl Scout Cookies when he was a Girl Scout. She laughs, understanding the fact that since he’s a boy means that he could not have been a Girl Scout. Thanks, Dad. I’m a boy and a formal Girl Scout.

Something either occurs in nature or it doesn't.  Homosexuality occurs in nature ... PERIOD.  It may be lesser in instances of occurrence than heterosexuality, but it is no less NATURAL.

Why is being gay "less natural?  Which fat people think that being fat is great?

Good for them...despite the attempts at "religious exemptions from gay rights" from certain countries

FYI - the Facebook status business is essentially illegible, both here and if I click on the link.

That youtube thing appeared on Professor Turley's blog the other day and I just facepalmed. That's a very stupid person, and that's that. She isn't oppressing anybody, she's just being dumb.
