polerin: My shadow on a wall (uh-Huh.)


Don't anyone say it's just because she's a spoiled little brat. You don't want to do that. It would make me very angry, and you wouldn't like me when I'm angry. or something. What do you want to bet there will be way more of an continuing uproar about Phelps' bong hit than this crap.

ARG. Gag me with a spork, this crap makes me nauseous.

-ETA-
The MSM is really showing it's chops on the coverage of this that I HAVE found as well. Longer but more important part behind cut. )

When you see this, post your favorite poem.



What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?


A Dream Deferred
Langston Hughes

So, just joined the YMCA, and I really have to make a note of how great the woman who took our registration forms was. She went out of her way to make me feel comfortable when she realized I was trans , asked *me* which changing room I planned to be using, and then suggested the all gender family room when I said I probably wouldn't be changing at the facility most times. She also entered me as female, even after I had sighed and checked M on the form because of my license.

I don't think that it would be even a regional YMCA policy to do it, but it really did make my night. That along with her hovering the mouse over "F" while looking at the form over and over and over and over, then slowly turning around with an embarrassed "I'm not quite sure I understand" look on her face. It was very cute and she was completely awesome all the way around.

Major good thoughts going in her direction tonight from our household.
