Japanese High School Holds "Sex Change Day"

Yesterday wasn't your typical day at Fuji Hokuryo High School in Yamanashi Prefecture. Male and female students could trade uniforms for what the school dubbed "Sex Change Day" (セクスチェンジ・デー or sekusu chenji dee). The event made the national news.

According to one of Japan's largest papers, Asahi Shimbun (via game site My Game News Flash), the day took its name from "sex" and "exchange" (交換 or koukan)—though, perhaps, calling it "Gender Change Day" would have been a lot more accurate. Boys donned plaid skirts and ribbons, and girls wore slacks and neckties. The point was to allow students the freedom to separate themselves from predetermined notions of manliness and femininity.

[center][/center]

In Japanese high schools and junior high schools, the male and female students typically have different uniforms. Sometimes they both wear blazers, but other parts of the uniform are genderified. Some schools have male students wear uniforms called "gakuran," while female students wear sailor suits, which draw an even sharper line between boys and girls.

I use this:

[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal][font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]The font-family part tells your computer what font family to use. In my case Papyrus. If the computer reading your script does not support that script it will display [/font][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5][font face='Brush Script MT' size=5 color=teal]Brush Script MT[/font][/font][font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal], and if not that the oh so hated[/font] [font face='comic sans MS'][font size=3 color=teal face='comic sans MS']comic sans MS[/font][/font] [font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]font. If none of those work it will then use whatever fantasy font family your computer does support.

The size tells it what size to use and color what color to make the font. You can change [/font][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT',''Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson ][font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT',''Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson] fonts[/font][/font] [font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]multiple times within each other

If you want to be lazy you could use [/font][font size=5 color=scarlet face='Brush Script MT'][font size=5 color=scarlet face='Brush Script MT']this[/font][/font] [font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]instead but the font might not be supported by their computer and will default back to the normal script[/font]

[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]I highly suggest if you use a font with spaces in it like[/font] [font color=scarlet size=3 face='comic sans ms'] [font face='comic sans ms' color=scarlet size=3]Comic Sans MS[/font] [/font] [font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]you put apostrophes before and after like this [/font][font size=3 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms'][font size=3 color=scarlet face='comic sans MS']'Comic Sans MS'[/font][/font]

There has been a lot of talk about labels here and in the other room lately and yeah they do suck

They divide people and oversimplify things.

But you know what sucks more? Having people, who oppose your very existence, labeling you instead and having it stick. The reality that those who oppose labels refuse to accept is that you either define yourself, or you allow others to define you.

Words have power. If you allow others to label you, then they get to define who you are and have power over you. Power to tell the world what you believe and what you don't believe. Power to call you moral or immoral, power to deem you worthy or to turn you into a monster. Power to strengthen you or strip you of your very humanity...and then, in the most extreme of circumstances, your life.

By defining yourself you are taking power over how you are perceived by others. You are telling the world what it is that makes you unique, and to do so on your own terms. You are telling the world what makes you...YOU!!!

Getting rid of labels sounds good on paper, but what it really does is empower intolerance and ends individuality. It is a demand that we all be alike, that we all be the same. It is conformist thinking that rejects anything different, anything unique, anything valuable that the majority does not have or want.

To the anti-label crowd, you are not an African American, you are just an American. You are not gay, you are just another person. If your experience does not meld with the majority experience, they are going to want to pretend your issues do not exist. To deny you. To deny the adversities you face. To say, "Why do you have a problem with that? Why do you insist on dividing us?" To push you back into the closet and pretend you don't exist! This is why you see the right wing demanding we stop seeing the world in colors and demand we all be colorblind, because they are the majority. Because they know they will win that way.

Its the ultimate whitewashing under the banner of conformity! One that tries to disguise itself as benevolent egalitarian collectivism when it fact it is a tool of fascist hierarchical collectivism that sacrifices individuality at the alter of tyranny of the majority.

[font face=papyrus size=3][center] Why? [/center]

[center] Because we are NOT all the same! Because those things are parts of me! [/center][/font]

[div style='color:#B20000 !important; font-size:2em !important; text-align:center !important;'] BECAUSE I HAVE VALUE AND WILL NOT BE PUSHED INTO ANY CLOSET I DON'T WANT TO BE IN!!!

[div style='color:#B20000 !important; font-size:5em !important; text-align:center !important;'] YOU DON'T GET TO DEFINE ME!!!

[font face=papyrus size=3][center]I will not be ashamed of being an atheist or any of my labels! [/center]

[font color=teal][center] I will not be silent and fade into the background because my label makes you uncomfortable. I am not going to let you tell me what I do or do not believe! To further STIGMATIZE the label I identify with. I am not going to let you associate me and my label with things they have nothing to do with![/center][/font][/font]

[div style='color:#B20000 !important; font-size:5em !important; text-align:center !important;']I am proud of who I am and I WILL NOT LET YOU OR ANYONE ELSE DEFINE ME!!!


[center][/center]

In conclusion, I would like to say, if you don't like my labels then don't use them. I don't care how you label yourself, and I believe it is your RIGHT to label yourself as you wish. However, if you do make up your own label, do it on your own terms. Don't use my label to define your label; because, when you do that, whether you intend to or not, you are applying your own biases to the label and redefining me in the process.
