Applies to Goucher students as well.
That two of the people who just liked my post about why Gaypril and Drag Ball suck are the main two people who, you know, helped plan and run those events (this year and last) and have explicitly ignored my criticisms before for being “too negative” and “not representative”…Especially when it came to being a trans person, a victim of bullying (seriously, one of you actually said “It Gets Better” to me), and a person of colour. You know, the people who caused me to drive completely away from the GLBT group on campus.
Haha, I hate this school so much. Hypocrites.
It is rather annoying how the biggest and most popular event for my school’s “Gaypril” (GLBT awareness month) is the goddamn “Drag Ball”.
Seriously, it is mainly a bunch of cis white girls drawing fake moustaches on themselves, grunting a lot, and stuffing socks down their pants. Haha, very funny.
And people get REALLY passionate about going to it…You know, instead of something that actually MATTERS. Or, you know, actually doing something to help further understanding and acceptance of the trans people that actually live on this campus. The rest of the programming for the month (in the now three Aprils that I have been here) is generally ranging between mediocre-at-best and “one or two things are actually decent”.
Hell, some of us can’t even participate in the event. The idea of putting on women’s clothing makes me want to curl into a ball, and if I show up in my regular clothes then people will just assume I am a cis girl in drag (which also makes me want to curl up into a ball).
Ugh, I wish I had been able to graduate this year (being a transfer to this school fucking sucks).
Watching my college president being publicly eviscerated by the student body would be more satisfying if it actually yielded some real answers from him.
Yup. Just another week at college.
I mean, this is pretty much my college.
Except replace the urine with vomit.
Fireworks and people running around the freezing cold campus screaming in victory and excitement. Fuck yeah, Baltimore!
I called my Grandma to congratulate her and let her hear all the excited students.
Beginning in the summer of 2013, students will pay $450 per credit for internships occurring in the summer or during winter break. This is the same amount currently charged for students taking courses during the summer and is standard practice at most colleges and universities.
We anticipate that the additional income to the college, while helpful, will be limited. Rather, the policy of charging fairly for all academic credits received is one that honors the value of a Goucher education and, ultimately, a Goucher degree.
An email that I got this afternoon from the president of my college.
FUCK YOU, GOUCHER.
Looks like I’m either not going to do an internship, or that I’ll do the internship for no credit. BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF EXTRA MONEY.

Add an Urban Outfitters bag with an Autism Speaks pin and you’ve nailed it.
Haha, nice slackivist costume. Actually, I could walk around decked out all in those and just fit in better at Goucher.
A “Mental Illness Film Festival”? Fuck you.
I especially object to showing As Good As It Gets to “highlight” Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.
I don’t want to sit around with a bunch of idiot Goucherites having to explain what living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and other things are REALLY like.
Popular media portrayals of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder are how I got saddled with nicknames like “Howard Hughes” and “Monk” in my teens.
I just want to try to keep my problems as private and hidden as possible at Goucher, not have a spotlight shined on them.
That’s when I go get food from Stimson, eat it in Hillel, and make my Orthodox friends jealous.

My friend and I have a running joke that this is what Goucher parties (especially at GiG) look like.
Since the President of the college just published a big article about it, does this mean that we’re now officially allowed to talk about the fact that Goucher accidentally hired a professor who might have participated in the Rwandan Genocide?
Or maybe Goucher students are just too apathetic and/or have a short-ass attention span?
Notice that all the people complaining that the Goucher tag on tumblr is too negative are white, cisgender people.
Maybe should should take it as evidence that shit at that college needs to improve if POC and trans people are voicing their grievances. This is why we got a tumblr, because no one on campus actually listens to our voices and pays attention to what we have to say…What makes us uncomfortable and what our needs are.
