"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings.

HEY, CANADIAN TUMBLR

YOU ALL NEED TO FUCKING SIGN THIS.

HELL, THOSE OF YOU YOU AREN’T CANADIAN, FUCKING DO IT ANYWAY.

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT INFORMED, HARPER LITERALLY JUST SOLD CANADA TO CHINA. 

THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO OVERTURN FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL LAWS THAT WOULD STOP THEM FROM DOING SHIT LIKE FRACKING, EVEN IF IT’S ON NATIVE LAND.

SERIOUSLY YOU NEED TO SIGN THIS.

for more information:

The NDP issued a statement saying “the agreement will give China’s state-controlled companies the same protection under the law as private Canadian companies.

"In effect, it will give China access to, and control over, some of Canada’s natural resources for the next 31 years."

NDP trade critic Don Davies put forward a motion in the House of Commons in April 22, 2013, calling on the government not to ratify the agreement. The motion was defeated.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in a statement on Wednesday said the FIPA with China was a “sell out.”

Deputy Green Party Leader Bruce Hyer added cabinet is, “signing of this deal behind closed doors, instead of giving Parliament a say, is not just undemocratic in itself … it is also a profound attack of Canada’s sovereignty as a nation, and an erosion of the rights of all Canadians to make democratic decisions about our economy, environment, and energy.”

Okay, this only has 440 notes, whereas it should be having fucking street demonstrations. Sign it.

There should be riots in the bloody streets. Seriously. Canadian tumblr, where are you?

This trade deal of Harper’s, FIPA, gives foreign corporations the right to sue Canadian governments for legislating in the public interest and protecting our environment. For the next 31 years.

So, basically, foreign companies can rape and pillage our natural resources as they please, and we can’t even pass any environmental protection laws to stop them.

GOD I FUCKING HATE HARPER

do you ever just wanna wrap a blanket around yourself and go find a cozy place to curl up and observe?

like maybe you’re around other people but you don’t talk to them or really make yourself known at all you just sort of sit there and watch them do their thing

and you wrap the blanket around your head so you can’t see anything but what’s right in front of you, but it’s soft and warm and cozy-feeling so it doesn’t matter, all that matters is sitting and being around someone else and being safe

yeah

I got that feeling right now
