Spoiler:
Today (and for the past few days) I've had Summer Exams, And recently I've been getting "verbally bullied" by some.... neanderthals.. (not that I care about what they say), And have been forced to take action as they have progressed to near physical bullying (E.g Saying "I'll stab your neck" while holding pens and pencils), I've taken up a case with the schools board about the amount of bullying that not just I, but a number of LGBT students have been faced with lately (It's not just my year group apparently... :/ ), And so far it's going well. I could of just decided to break each and every bone in their bodies, But legal matters trimuph once again.
half of all your stuff please
So yeah, Anyone want to hear my argument for the school board?


Only real reason I'm ranting is because Portal2 decided not to work on my PC anymore, No matter how many times I reinstall Steam...
In my eyes, it would be perfectly acceptable (and in some places, legal) for you to use physical force to defend yourself.

Well there in lies the problem. While physical force WOULD solve this problem, It would only solve it for me for a short while, They'd still try and spook out other people, And what about when I eventually leave the school? Wouldn't future LGBT students have the same problem, just with different culprits? At least if I go to the school board, they can enforce it even after I leave school, which would be better in the long run. (even though I'd love to break some of their arms and legs.)

In some places, self-defense law allows you to use force to protect others, as well.

Yes, Nurse Barbra, lets hear the argument in full! Though I think some physical pain might have been the order of the day as well - if I had martial arts skills it's what I would do. But I digress...

Point is, lets hear the argument :D

EDIT: LOL I must not have seen Page 7 when I posted this. Oh dear, don't mind me. I'm having a senior moment.

At the Republican Caucus meeting, I tried to solicit some GOP Senators to break with the party on a bill that would allow trans students to change their sex on school documents without having had gone through a sex change operation. There were 2 Democrats (the one for black students and the one for Muslim students) that were opposing the bill. That meant that I needed to sway at least one of my party members.

Final Vote:
14 Yeas, 11 Nays
Yeas: 10/12 Democrats, 4/13 Republicans
Nays: 2/12 Democrats, 9/13 Republicans

April House Vote:
56 Yeas, 45 Nays
Yeas: 44/52 Democrats, 12/49 Republicans
Nays: 8/52 Democrats, 37/49 Republicans

The AS President signed the bill the within an hour of the vote.

Trans students must still use the restrooms that correspond to their birth sexes. A bill that pass a year ago when the Democrats controlled all of the AS was vetoed by the President. The same bill passed the House 51-50, but died in the Senate.
Freaky, as much as I have a lot of differences with you I'm really grateful for the things you do. Especially things like this. It made me smile.

But it also reminds me how lucky I was that my college was so open about a lot of things. It had a GLTBQetc. center and everything. Sometimes it doesn't really hit home how even after high school there are a lot of problems even where people ought to feel accepted like in school.

We'd surely differ on our opinions on the gun bill that's being considered. My school is in a rural California county. Being in a rural area that has always gone for Republicans in every recent national and statewide election (and also overwhelmingly supported Proposition 8), getting these things done is harder. Most students don't harass or attack LGBT people, but they do have more traditional beliefs on marriage. Also, trans people are accepted less than homosexuals and bisexuals. There was an bashing attack this school year, though.

We have a Log Cabin Republicans chapter that tries to knock out incumbent GOP members in the primaries. I'm the GSA Senator, so I also chair the AS LGBT Committee, and the Log Cabin Republicans wing of the AS GOP.

    Hello Renii! Welcome! If you want to go back through the pages and find some of the questions written in bold and answer them for us, we'd love to hear what you have to say!


    Now, I'm putting this bigger so that everybody will see it, because I am an attention wh... seeker. For those of you who haven't seen it already, this morning I posted a blog about being gay that I hope you guys will be kind enough to read and comment on . It is a tl;dr, as my blogs always are, but I've tried to make it funny and read-worthy so you don't notice that so much XD

      Shining Raichu!!!!!! Thanks for the welcome. I already commented on your blog.

      How do you react when people make fun of people that aren't heterosexual?
      I get offended, and I bash them. (I usually don't argue or hit people.) Not that it happens very often. I know many homophobes, most of them try to keep their opinions to themselves when they're around me. Quite often, the homosexual people in consideration do deserve the making fun part: I mean, so many times, this friend of mine tells me that some random stranger tried to feel his "parts" in a public place. He is straight, therefore he is offended. It happens to me too.

      Why do you think they do so (religion, etc.)?
      IMO, things like religion are just excuses for the homophobia. I live in India, where majority of the people are Hindus and Muslims. As far as Hinduism is concerned, I don't think it talks about homosexuality at all, and still my country is so conservative. It is so hard for people to come out, or even discuss homosexuality seriously.

        Where are the social groups?! D=


        I just got back to PC after a while, and saw the news about them. Glad to have found this one, once again. So I would like to join up, as the ally I've always been with you people, and as the asexual I am. Acceptance of all people FTW! =D

          Raichu, it was awesome, and I read the whole thing; but yesterday! Heh...heh...heh...

          But from what I remember, there was only awesome. :D

          EDIT: At the..."doctor's." Turns out it's my elementary school guidance councillor, whom I was very familiar with due to parental divorce issues.

          My councillor was annoying. I had to go because I spoke out in class and thumped some.... idiot (can't say some "insert swears here").. and knocked him out. I've had quite the emotional outbursts over the last 3 years....

            Ah...well, I wasn't very violent as a kid, but it kinda started when I had this one outburst in first grade, when this girl didn't believe in Santa Clause (said as if I do, but I don't) and I slammed my fist on the table and screamed, "MY DAD ISN'T SANTA CLAUSE!" But that was when I was really autistic. I grew out of it.

            Buuuuuut, anyway, being stuck in a stupid guy's body (not that there's anything wrong with guys) is sooooo stressful. And people are disgusted by people like me, but it's not wrong; it's just like guys in guy bodies and girls in girl bodies, except our bodies differ from us as people.

            I hate labels.

            Welcome, World King! And welcome back to PC too! If you want to go back and find some of the bold questions posted throughout the pages and answer them like Renii did, that would be great it helps everyone get to know you as a person/ally/asexual XD

            And thank you so much PIW :D

                That is interesting. =P

                But you don't creep the said person out... or am I just so scared?

                My relationships have been all disasters until recently... and I mean RECENTLY.

                  I say that relationships are suck. I haven't been in one since November (ended on my birthday, actually), and I haven't found anyone I'd even remotely want to date. So, I think that's good. My standards are getting a lot higher.

                  If things don't go right... in my experience, you could just cause a bunch of property damage to their kitchen with a hatchet.

                  Wait, sorry, that was my advice to Carrie Nation, not to queers with relationship struggles.

                  If things don't go right... or if they're straight... SCREAM!

                  Start crushing on someone else! :D
                  If it's just a crush you'll get over it, you just need to find something/someone to take your mind of said person.

                  I'm pretty much asexual, so I guess I'll join.

                  I've had crushes on about 50+ people, though never felt anything sexual. I pretty much a real oddball in my school. Though many people classify me as gay because they think being asexual doesn't make sense. But yeah, it's nothing serious or nothing. There are some pretty amazing people in this thread too, with some great stories.

                  /I give free hugs btw. I'm a hugable person. Even for me reason. I enjoy teletubbie hugs the best. You all should try one.. [/pffttt...]

                    I hope I'll be over him soon.

                    Tbh, most of my relationships have sucked a lot, don't have much to say about that.

                    @Mew~: *Huggles* :D
                    To tell you the truth, I haven't ever felt sexually attracted to any person.
                    Not that I'm trying to tell you that you aren't asexual, because you always know in your heart who you are and where you belong =)

                    And the song, "Take me or Leave me," I love it too. [/offtopic]

                    After that one big crush on a hetereosexual guy that sent me into the gutter a for a period of time, I don't develop crushes anymore.

                    I feel attraction, but unless I know everything can work out, I don't emotionally attached.

                    But hey, whatever! More friends for me if they turn out to be into girls.

                    Crushes on people?
                    What's it like for an asexual to have a crush?

                    Sorry, but, honestly, I'm unsure of how asexuality functions as a whole- I haven't had that much experience with it.

                    It depends on the straight person. I've crushed on a few straight guys who sorta figured it out with me saying it, and then they used it to banter with me and joke-flirt with me, which helped get them out of my system, even though it did make me like them more as friends. Some of them still give me banter about it, which is awesome lol

                    But I'm lucky, I doubt very much all straight guys would feel that way. Generally if you have a crush on someone who's straight, don't ever tell them because it could make things incredibly awkward between you. As Hybrid Trainer said, if it's just a crush find someone else to crush on lol

                    EDIT: Oh, and welcome Mew~!
