I agree wholeheartedly with this video… I’d heard some good things about the game and bought it, and it’s very uncomfortable to play if you think about it much. Part of my brain kept saying “you paid for this, you might as well finish it,” but after a few hours I gave up and deleted it. I kept feeling like I was playing the “hero” that the Oregon wildlife preserve terrorists thought they were.
“Fertilized eggs can be expelled during a woman’s period without a woman even knowing that she might have had the potential blastocyst in her. Therefore, any period could potentially be a miscarriage without knowledge. I would certainly hate for any of my fellow Hoosier women to be at risk of penalty if they do not ‘properly dispose’ of this or report it. Just to cover our bases, perhaps we should make sure to contact Governor Pence’s office to report our periods. We wouldn’t want him thinking that THOUSANDS OF HOOSIER WOMEN A DAY are trying to hide anything, would we?”
I want to be taken seriously. I’m sure other kids do, too. Grownups usually treat kids like they cannot do anything great. If adults don’t think we can do something, then it is hard for us to believe that we can. And then how will we have great things in this world?
“Shouldn’t we also ask about…what about the other sector of society of people that who have all through the decades women been using women’s restrooms and men been using men’s restrooms and kind of like that and kind of expect that level of privacy?”
Related: Trans Man Finds Brilliant Way To Let Women Know Why He’s Using Their Restroom – You’d think conservative Tomes (previous story) would consider the level of discomfort caused by requiring men and women to use the wrong restroom. (I’d also hope a representative of the people would consider the level of physical risk he’s subjecting men and women to, since trans panic is a very real threat to this marginalized group. But we already know Tomes doesn’t give a shit about them.)
Hamilton Criticized Over Casting Notice for “Non-White” Performers – I’ve got only very slightly mixed feelings on this one. Given the message of the play and the overall context of Broadway’s casting history, I definitely don’t think the producers/casting directors are in the wrong. But I’m not a lawyer and I’m not familiar with the specific law, so it might be that the casting notice does violate the letter of the law. If so, well, there’s a long history of non-specific notices resulting in all-white casts. I’d be just fine in that being reversed.
