hmmm....

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my
mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because
nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay
brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who
buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the
hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the
room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away
from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they
could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack
that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be
able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just
weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are
the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to
rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which
bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on
me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore,
nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with
another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support
system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found
out my abusive partner
is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support
system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his
son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the
home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that
only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped
treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who
feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I didn’t have to
always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending
church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my
kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love

You know, frankly, you’re doomed, you and all the shy people are! Natural selection favours the loud and the aggressive. I don’t mean this in a bad way, but genetically, you are a cul-de-sac.

CSHS students!

BOYCOTT THE MUFTI DAY
This Friday there will be a mufti day held, the proceeds of which will be used to send two year ten girls on exchange to America. This trip has very little cultural or educational merit. Had the mufti day been used to raise funds for the community, a charitable organisation, the environment or even to send them to the USA to participate in a mock United Nations assembly, that would be reason enough to support it.

Students going to France to further their language speaking skills had their government grants cut. The response of the school was to allow them to sell chocolate. Yet for a trip lacking the educational, cultural and historical merit that France holds, Mr James is prepared to hold a mufti day despite protests from representatives from the Student Representative Council and Interact?

By funding the trip of these students through a mufti day, it also takes away the ability of organisations such as Interact from holding a mufti for the duration of this term. In the past the SRC and Interact have both chosen causes to support which have value.

But to send these girls on what is essentially a holiday? If they require cultural immersion, they should turn on the television and watch a sitcom. Requesting that the students of our school should fund their trip is a disgrace.

I intend to boycott this mufti day and for the reasons stated above I ask you to do the same. Do not wear mufti and do not pay. I have better things to spend my money on than two year ten girls who want to kick up their heels in America.
