“To Santa Claus and Little Sisters” is the title of this poem. It was written in the 1960s by an Anonymous 15 year old boy, 2 years before he committed suicide. Steven Chbosky (The perks of being a wallflower) used this poem in the Perks Of Being A Wallflower, but had differences. This poem is also in English curriculum for a lot of high schools. It is a very powerful poem, and although it is very blunt, there is so much more meaning and depth behind each line.
my mother must be so proud of her lazy, rebellious, anxiety-ridden, depressed child
your mother must be so proud of her strong, smart child who lives each day dealing with anxiety and depression and still holds on
oh man wow
It still shocks (and mostly just disappoints) me how SHOCKED people are when I tell them that it is 100% legal to be fired simply for being gay.
They look at me like I’m lying and say things like "nooooo, that can’t be right?".
I have been fired twice (in Ohio) for being openly gay.
I have been asked:
- to not wear my wedding ring
- Not acknowledge my wife’s existence
- To "just say you have a husband"
- To just not answer “yes” when people ask if I’m married because "you’re not REALLY married"
- To not bring my wife to the company FAMILY Christmas party
- Let people just assume we’re sisters
- Just make it easier on everyone and “just say you’re divorced”
These were not requests made from some Mom and Pop shop. I was a corporate executive for a large chain of high volume restaurants. My boss was the President of Human Resources, and she would walk into my office and say the most ignorant things you can possibly imagine.
People in America need to be educated on the reality that is life as a gay person in this country.
It’s not all gay pride parades and appletinis.
We need a leg to stand on.
We need people to wake up and educate themselves on the rights we are denied.
We need people…gay, straight, and in between, to open their eyes, stop ignoring what doesn’t directly effect them, and educate themselves.
Same (or worse) goes for trans. Not to mention other countries…
'are you flirting with me or are you like this to everyone' a classic novel by me
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are,” she tells the magazine, “not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
DID SHAILENE JUST SAY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR? SHE IS LIKE THE FIRST ACTRESS WHO SAYS IT LIKE THAT. SHE DIDNT SAY SHE WAS GAY BUT SHE IS JUST LIKE ALL OF US. WE ALWAYS WANTED PEOPLE TO SAY THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE AND NOT WITH A GENDER AND FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YOU GO SHAILENE WOODLEY.
I don’t know who she is, but I agree.
She plays the main character in two of this year’s most anticipated movies: ‘Divergent’ and ‘The Fault in our Stars’. You should check them out, they’re both amazing :D
