Over 100 schools in Georgia say ‘No Gays Allowed!’ – and still get $170 million from the public to do it.
Georgia lawmakers want to add millions more to this voucher program that supports schools who explicitly ban gay and lesbian students. Politicians think this is about being re-elected, instead of about students being treated fairly. But, they won’t be able to ignore state education officials who’s job it is to make sure all Georgia students get the education they deserve.
The Georgia School Superintendent, John D. Barge, could make it clear that outright discrimination is just not acceptable. So far he’s avoided this political controversy – so we need to give him a straightforward way to be heard by state legislators. We’re asking him to answer one simple question: Do you think gay or lesbian students should be expelled from publicly-funded schools for who they are?His answer can make equality, not partisanship, the priority.
This is a photo of the best and worst purchase I have ever made in my life. It is a kotatsu. For those of you unfamiliar, a kotatsu is a Japanese heated table. The top of the table comes off, you put a blanket on in the cold seasons, and then put the table top back on. There are small space heaters underneath the whole table and when you stick your feet under there, it’s a toasty oven of pure bliss. It’s great on heating bills because I don’t turn on my heat, just my kotatsu. It’s the best and the worst purchase because it’s fucking awesome yet it’s so awesome I never want to leave the thing and end up missing school because who the fuck wants to get out from under a toasty oven of pure bliss? Not this bitch. My advice to you, is that you should totally get a kotatsu but only if you have the will power and self control to not get trapped under there. It’s so addicting, I even sleep under it sometimes…
