The foolery floating past me & the bumblings of my brain
Stand-up comedy junkie, geek, and closet romantic. Introspectively sexy. Flyyer than your girlfriend, fresher than your crew. 'Bougie', 'siddity', and generally okay with that. But sometimes, I just wanna do hoodrat stuff with my friends. My richness consists not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants. And all I want is simplicity and success. And maybe some more shoes.
Outraged Mom is scandalized because her son’s teacher told her middle school students that she was a lesbian after vicious rumors started flying about her personal life. As far as I can tell, the teacher didn’t go into any sort of details about her sex life or anything that would be even remotely out of bounds for a straight person to talk about, but Outraged Mom of course is forced to ask—isn’t putting a picture of your lesbian lover on your desk at school pretty much the same thing as talking sexual positions with 12-year-olds?
It’s perfectly okay to announce an engagement, to talk about your husband, or to announce a pregnancy. But mention that you’re a lady who dates ladies…WHY DON’T YOU JUST SHOW THE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS YOUR SEX TAPES, YOU IRRESPONSIBLE CREEP WITH NO JUDGMENT?!
I wish teachers were treated more like normal people. Teachers may act like machines or robots, but really, teachers are human, too.
“Mayor Michael Nutter and other city officials rolled out a plan Monday to prevent future “flash mobs” and punish those caught terrorizing the streets. Nutter says the violence by a small number of reckless teenagers has damaged Philadelphia and its citizens. And he says he’s tired of it. ”I don’t care what your economic status is in life, you do not have a right to beat somebody’s a— on the street. None,” said the mayor. Philadelphia is tightening its curfew and warning parents to keep track of their children—or risk fines.”
Philadelphia teenagers held a peaceful “flashmob” demonstration, reading books instead of participating in violence.
