I’ve had enough.
I have a friend named Kaitlan: she’s beautiful and kind and is a great cosplayer, and she’s been getting these slipped under her apartment door for months.
I asked her if I could make this post because I’ve been seeing this happening and I just want something to be done. Whether it’s people supporting her or someone telling her how to get this to stop. How to get these people to get the punishment they deserve.
She has literally done anything that she knows to do. She even went to the police:
They told her to come back if it got more serious. What does that even MEAN? Apparently, someone has to actually kill themselves for this to be serious to the police.
Apparently, this behavior is acceptable at Indiana University of PA. Apparently, this behavior is acceptable to the Indiana County Police. Apparently, bullying like this is completely acceptable until someone ends up dead.
I’m just absolutely infuriated right now. This should not go unpunished. Absolutely fucking not.
If anyone has any advice on how to help this person, please don’t hesitate to offer it. It seems that the police are not willing to intervene until someone is injured or deceased.
I emailed the OP but there are so many things that I need to know in order to help her. Hopefully they answer.
I’m going to go cry for a bit now. Fuck you world.
This is fucking disgusting. Is there a way we can contact the police in a way that doesn’t block other people who need to contact them? A public opinions email or anything? Also it may be helpful to contact the paper in the area (rant and raves etc.) about the issue. But only at Kaitlan’s behest, I would hate to put her in that situation if she doesn’t want it. She’s been through enough.
THE MIRACLE ROMANCE THAT TRANSCENDS TIME AND SPACE, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN.
To me, Geoff is like Gavin’s second father, and Gavin is like Geoff’s problem child. I think it’s adorable.
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
“Where is Gavin? And why do I smell something burning?”
Anon I am so sorry. I couldn’t resist.
