NOT A SPOILER FREE BLOG
A sometimes snarky and generally cynical blogger that's unreliable, untrustworthy and unorganised. Sometimes I write, sometimes I make manips. Neither are very good.
Multishipper, Trent Nixon stan, Kurtbastian is my OTP, still doesn't believe Ianto Jones is dead, is called Sebastian by a lot of people - but that's not actually my name.
Instead of casting Zoe “Colorblind” Saldana to play Nina Simone, they should cast the amazing Adepero Oduye.

Hollywhite strikes again.
btw of all Zoe’s movies I’ve seen, she’s been blue, green and well alien.
i like how in Don’t Stop The Music, Rihanna asks nicely. She’s all like “PLEASE don’t stop the music”. At least some celebrities have manners

the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums.

-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.
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

there are certain characters/families in the Harry Potter canon that are described as having fair or pale skin, the Potter line isn’t one of them. Harry and James both have canonically jet-black untidy hair but no canon ethnicity. Harry has “great skin”.
