Brittney Byrant, a biology teacher at Woodlawn High and the mother of a senior at the school, was one of those who took to Facebook to register her concerns. Shed learned the day before that she was serving as a chaperone for the event, accompanying her child. Bryant particularly objected to the organizers decision to separate the audience by gender and have the girls listen to a series of emotional talks from three female speakers.
They talked about rape (and) forgiving the offender, suicide, prayer leadership, and many more dark controversial topics. We had females in the bathrooms crying due to the topics of discussion, Bryant wrote.
Her transgender child, who identifies as he, tried to walk out as the girl talk started and was initially barred from leaving, the mother said. Bryant said she also heard that other transgender students were bullied Tuesday.
- Baton Rouge High School students were brought on field trip to a career fair, which turned out to be church retreat
- Boys and girls were separated.
- The boys events including doing push-ups competitively to earn money in a hyper-macho atmosphere.
- The girls were proselytized about church dogma, including forgiving their rapist and purity culture.
- A transgender boy was forced to attend the girls lecture and couldnt leave. At the end, there was some ceremony where he was cleansed by having water poured over his head to convert him.
- The entire event was highly misogynist, homophobic, transphobic, and left students traumatized.
What the fuck!?
Yes, I know, the Queen Did so much for the world. Know who else couldve? Someone in a Democratically elected position.
Monarchies shouldnt exist in 2022, and its annoying American popular culture embraces the royal family so much. Their biggest claim to fame was being born. None of them seem exceptionally talented at anything or deserving of praise. They gather attention and money by merely existing.
The UK shouldve just dropped the title today once and for all. We fought a war to rid ourselves of this shit, and, Im fully comfortable in saying Democracy is vastly superior to Monarchy as a government structure. I know the royal family are just figure heads at this point, but, they need to be wiped out of American culture, much like all other forms of Authoritarian worship.
Dear GQP - if youre so concerned about this countrys mental health, why dont you work to improve access to mental health services, and subsidize them through the government? Why dont you create free mental health services accessible by anyone whenever they want them?
Until then, shut the fuck up. You wont do anything about the countrys terrible mental health, so, we have to solve the gun crisis a different way - taking the guns away. Your thoughts and prayers have done jack shit.
Extremist Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona) deleted a disturbing and offensive tweet Tuesday that falsely claimed the gunman who killed more than 20 people at a Texas school was a transsexual leftist illegal alien.
Gosar, an anti-immigration hardliner who routinely cozies up to white nationalists, was apparently promoting a false claim circulating on right-wing networks. Users shared images of a trans person unrelated to the attack claiming they were the shooter.
This is your typical Fascist nutcase. Theyre obsessed with creating a boogeyman, and, anything bad that happens is because of them. It doesnt matter if the tweet was deleted - it served its purpose in terrorizing two communities that are already consistently terrorized by the GQP.
