This bill that was just past not only effects the gay community it effects everyone in the Tennessee state. In this bill students in schools are legally allowed to bully in the grounds of “protecting their religious freedoms” this means if you are not of the same religion as one person, or are gay, or anything this law says you have the right to bully other students to protect your freedoms. This law is unfathomable in the sense that people will be discriminated by their race, gender, sexuality, and yes other religions. This isn’t just about gay kids. This is about your kids. While I live in Ohio, this can effect thousands of children on a daily basis, submitting them to suicide, depression, violence, and verbal abuse. Stand up and sign this petition to get this ridiculous law taken down IMMEDIATELY. It’s discrimination, dangerous, and frankly CRUEL. No one should live in the fear of being bullied, and no one should have the right to say I can bully someone because it’s not against the law. SIGN IT.
Why does no one talk about the time that Kaylee from Firefly was in Supernatural playing a girl named Amy Pond?!
One of my friends has been out of school for the last 3 months because she has pancreatic cancer and today was her first day back.
There’s state testing going on this week, so it’s a pretty laid back setting and the perfect time for her to integrate back into school. They shift us around about every hour and to keep us organised, they separate us by homeroom. While we were in the classroom with the teacher a few of the other students started up a conversation.
A conversation about different ways you can contract cancer. In front of my friend. On her first day back after being in the hospital for almost 3 months. After going through 2 rounds of chemo and having to shave her head. After being mostly isolated from her friends.
And the teacher was contributing to the conversation. How in any way is that even remotely okay? I’m pretty sure it was the last thing that she wanted to hear about or talk about.
She’s impossibly strong and level-headed. And doesn’t like to make a big deal and tell the world about her personal business. For a month and a half we all thought she was just really sick with the flu. No one even knew until her boyfriend told everyone.
But she ended the discussion by interrupting and say “Well I personally got cancer from a stem-cell that had already been in my body, so cancer can come from anywhere.”
The fact that this conversation even took place is the most aggravating thing that could have happened. It was rude and unnecessary and proved to me yet again that some people just don’t understand how completely ignorant they’re being.
