It was great seeing friends from out of town and other eras and yet I had to spend time at camp.
There are some new girls. They’re in their early to mid teens. They’re not horrid or whiny but it’s the typical young girl nonsense.
Though two did forget to take off their nail lacquer.
But on my unit’s end there were of colour jokes, farbiness, and misogyny everywhere.
For instance, I offered to peel carrots but without a cutting board I was afraid to cut them and still keep my fingers. I asked the camp, at large, if any of the guys wanted to help me out.
My lieutenant spoke up saying, “there are plenty of women around. Ask them”.
I set the bowl of carrots down and as I left camp said, “it’s accurate for the guys to be cooking”. But what I meant to say was that he was being a chauvinistic arsehole.
Ayah. A mixed bag of emotions.
I’m borderline excited and a little apprehensive. We’re riding down with a couple of privates and my lieutenant and his wife.
YEAH, SHE’S GOOD LOOKING, I GUESS. NOT REALLY MY TYPE. I LIKE A BIGGER WINGSPAN.
THERE WE GO. PAGE 236. LOOK AT THE PLUMAGE ON THAT ONE. SWEET JESUS.
This is beyond beautiful. XD
TEN YEARS. TEN YEARS I WAS MARRIED TO THAT WOMAN. HOLLOWED OUT HALF A MAPLE FOR HER AND THE KIDS. GATHERED I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY NUTS AND SEEDS. THOUSANDS? HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS? THEN SHE UP AND LEAVES ME FOR SOME ASSHOLE FROM THE CITY WHO PROBABLY LIVES ON TOP OF A 7-11 AND EATS GARBAGE OR SOMETHING. JUST LIKE THAT. NO WARNING, NO NOTHING.
“HE MAKES ME FEEL ALIVE.”
I DON’T HAVE PASSIONS? I DON’T LIKE ART THINGS? WHAT DO I MAKE HER FEEL? DEAD? I MEAN COME ON! GIVE ME A BREAK HERE! SOME OF US WERE TOO BUSY PUTTING FOOD IN THE BURROW TO WORK ON OUR POETRY, YOU KNOW?
Oh my GOD.
“You’re a lesbian because your dad abused/didn’t love you”
“You’re a lesbian because you scared of men”
“you’re gay because you were too close to your mum”
“You’re not gay you jsut havent met the right boy/girl”
“You’re __ because-“
“Being Trans* isn’t real. You just hate being ____”.
“You’re really a ___”!

There should be an educator discount on alcohol in May.
This is beautiful.
“When we have a queen who is a lesbian and she marries another lady and then decides she would like to have a child and someone donates sperm and she gives birth to a child, is that child heir to the throne?”
“It’s like one of my colleagues said: we’ve got to make these same sex marriages available to all. It would lift my worries about inheritance tax because maybe I’d be allowed to marry my son. Why not? Why shouldn’t a mother marry her daughter? Why shouldn’t two elderly sisters living together marry each other?”
Gettin’ reaaaaaal tired of your bullcrap fossilized conservative MP’s.
