Ironically, While Mother of Bullied Suicide Victim Blames School for Not Listening to Her Son, She Failed at the Same Task

Daniel Sv.: Boy Who Killed Himself After Being Bullied Says He “Gave Up” in Note:

Rayn: Mother states, “my son shouldn’t have to die to be heard. There’s something wrong with the adults in authority positions when kids can’t go to them for help.” Ironically, she wasn’t listening, either, when he was begging and begging to be transferred out of that school…

Discussing North Carolina’s So-Called “Bathroom Bill”

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Stacie T., after she shared artwork from here

Stacie T.:

"Excuse me! Do you MIND!?!" " Just makin' sure you ain't some kind of PERVERT!"

“Excuse me! Do you MIND!?!”
” Just makin’ sure you ain’t some kind of PERVERT!”

Rayn: LOL. This is what happens when facts take a back seat to emotionally-charged conjecture. Why focus solely on restrooms, which constitute only one quarter of the subject matter at hand, when the bill clearly legislates “restroom[s], locker room[s], changing room[s], or shower room[s]”? Have any of those railing so hard against this bill EVEN READ ITS MERE FIVE PAGES, or is that too much to ask a thinking, reasoning human being to do BEFORE formulating strong opinions, anymore? I still haven’t found even ONE who actually has, yet! *sigh*

Lest our memories remain selectively short for the sake of politically convenient “outrage” and a completely shallow and shortsighted sense of “fighting against discrimination,” this “bill” was a direct response to a Charlotte, NC ordinance which, among other things, contained language that attempted to FORCE schools and public agencies to provide males and females access to ALL FOUR of these facilities, regardless of gender, in the name of “transgender” rights, and that individuals be granted such access with little more than a verbal declaration of being “transgender.”

With this understanding in mind, enforcement of this “bill” is actually pretty simple in three out of four situations. On average, the easiest way to know if a male is in using a locker room, changing room or shower room is that he’ll HAVE A PENIS dangling between his legs! And, a female using a men’s locker room will have a vulva. In other words, regardless of gender titles, or how an Individual looks, it’s a WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY for one to remove their clothes, and have a sex organ that doesn’t correspond with their appearance, nor with the gender-assignment of the bathroom, itself. This is very likely why the mainstream media monopoly is fixating on the bathroom scenario, instead of discussing the entire issue at hand. Not only is it the least enforceable, making it the biggest gray area in the bill, but any discussion of a man or women entering any of the other three spaces would be met with a knee-jerk “I DON’T FUCKING THINK SO” from even the vast majority of the most left-leaning, progressive liberals! This is especially true when taking note of the fact that the first section of this bill is dedicated to SCHOOLS and STUDENTS, along with public agencies!

Meanwhile, this bill actually protects post-operative transsexuals, granting them full access to all four facilities, since they are, indeed legally able to change their gender on their birth certificate in ALL FIFTY STATES of the Union!

To be clear, I’m mostly just laying out the facts, without yet providing my own views. Personally, I think that multi-occupancy bathrooms, alone, are highly unsanitary, very anti-privacy, completely anti-responsibility, anti-safety, anti-parent-and-child, and also typically anti-disability (not too mention anti-menstruation, as well), so I avoid them like the plague. Meanwhile, I have NEVER, and would NEVER, use a multi-occupancy showers, nor would I dare get undressed in a multi-occupancy changing room, nor locker room! And, I hope to see all of these sorts of facilities one day replaced with single-occupancy unisex units – and I honestly believe that ALL of these bills and ordinances will make my desire an actual reality, since it is the simplest solution to all of controversy at hand. 🙂 Even at one of my recent Autistic Self-Advocacy meetings, in Greensboro, NC, ALL THREE transgendered individuals agreed with me on my viewpoint, and when I listed my various grievances in detail, they even chimed in with their own examples, too! Peace and privacy are what we’re ALL looking for, while schools and businesses are looking at their bottom line: prices – without much more than a passing regard for the human factor!

Oh, and for the record, the single-occupancy bathrooms I mention would truly work a lot better if they were segregated by “urination” and “defecation,” rather than gender! LOL! 😉 (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)

Are the Terms “Zero Intelligence” and “Brain-Dead” Really Considered Offensive, Now?

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Zero Tolerance? Try Zero Intelligence! Brain-Dead Bureaucracy in Action!“…

Rayn: Autistic Student Suspended for Bringing Drawing of Cartoon Bomb to School:

And, THIS is brain-dead bureaucracy in action, my friends!
“Zero tolerance”? Ha! Try: ZERO INTELLIGENCE!

Besides, No Victim, No Crime, control-freaks!
Get a grip on yourselves, already!

Adam G.: I think it’s more ableist, victim blaming structures in action that support bullying. Rather than being concerned that there are things pushing students to mass violence, they just want to focus on the mass violence, so they have these asinine no tolerance policies against anyone who makes reference to violence instead of bring the (sometimes metaphorical) actual bullies down to the office for torturing students so badly that they try to kill themselves or others.

Adam G.: Also, can’t help but nitpick, but “brain dead” and “zero intelligence” are kind of ableist.

Genaire: I don’t disagree with your first comment, Adam, but how are Rayn’s words ableist? It does seem pretty brain dead to suspend a student for a harmless picture. I’ve drawn several pictures of guns, bombs and other weapons while in class never would I have imagined getting suspended for it.

RaynI understand where you are coming from with your first comment, Adam, although I’m not so sure this has to do with student bullying. In order to punish the student mentioned in the article, the school utilized their “zero tolerance” for weapons on school grounds policy. And, apparently, according to this mindless set of rules, a drawing of a weapon is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing…

As a matter of fact, the “zero tolerance” for weapons on campus policy is so cold and thoughtless, it has even been used by school officials to demand that a deaf child modify the way he signs his name, since one of the letters involved apparently “resembles a shooting gun” to these bureaucratic robots…

Hunter Spanjer, 3-Year-Old Deaf Boy, Told By Preschool To Change Way He Signs His Name:

Also, to clarify my words, since their meaning appears to be completely lost on you: bureaucracy isn’t actually alive, so it doesn’t really have brain function, while a policy isn’t actually capable of intelligence, so it registers as “zero.” With this in mind, understand that I very purposely labeled these two non-corporeal entities with the thinking and reasoning level of THE DEAD – utterly and completely non-existent! And, I spent a while tweaking my comment, in order to get the results you see, trying out multiple terms in the process – including “zombie,” “mindless,” “brainless,” and so on. However, none of them did my sentiment any justice, and so, were rejected in favor of my final two choices. I fail to see how they could be viewed as “kinda ableist,” since I have never before seen or heard either of these two terms being used to describe the disabled.

Never Forget America’s Kent State Massacre!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Truth Be Known,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"It is not the job of thinking people to be on the side of the executioners." - Albert Camus

“It is not the job of thinking people to be on the side of the executioners.” – Albert Camus

My Commentary: Never forget the Kent State massacre! During this year’s anniversary of the American government’s murderous crimes against innocent student anti-war protesters, which is today, take a moment to reflect on this egregious violation of human rights committed by a system that has historically purported to legally protect them. We must learn to reject ALL forms of democide – no matter who the perpetrator is – and to discard the blinder-based faith required to adhere to the religion of Statism!
