Animal agriculture is the number one contributor to human-caused climate change. Raising animals for meat and dairy consumes 1/3 of the entire planet’s fresh water, occupies up to 45% of Earth’s land, is responsible for 91% of Amazon destruction, and is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, and habitat destruction.

But “bacon”, right ?

Anonymous said: what's your opinion on GSA's, like in schools? the sixth form im going to now has one and i don't know whether to get involved or not. i get that they're trying to support LGBT students but the name really puts me off, because i'm bi, and because they include straight allies.

It varies from school to school, some GSA’s despite the name are actually really inclusive and include allies in the way you are supposed to, which is to educate them to be supportive and go into heterosexist and cissexist spaces to make them safe for LGBTQ people.

However, some can be the opposite, so I’d ask around to see how yours operates and whether it is worth your time getting involved, if you hear and see good things I’d definitely give it a go and maybe give them advice on being more inclusive of bisexual students and getting more outreach in general.

Organisations like this, when run well, I think are essential to young MOGAI people.

My schools GSA is actually called gender, sexuality alliance instead of gay straight alliance

I like that, you’ve got total inclusivity of trans people and multisexuals and you still have enough openess of allies and closeted people to join, more groups should do that.

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

i’m reading through my old primary school reports and reading the teachers’ comments.
some of my favorites include:

• *my name* must learn to respect the teacher’s agenda over her own.

• *my name*’s behavior has often pushed the boundaries, and been an ongoing frustration for teachers and peers.

• *my name* must understand that obedience is more appreciated than favors.

lol alright then.

catch me on my deathbed still contributing nothing to the discourse
