oh. my. god.

The word of the day is Queer! That's what grandma called the school after she called them and asked them a bunch of questions to determine how right she is. I asked her what she meant by calling it a queer school. "They talked about feelings. You can't get a job with feelings." And it just got worse from there. I explained why the use of the word was hurtful, that she was making inherently negative associations with homosexuals, some of whom are my best friends and hey, what if I was gay? Subject change. Every time she said queer, and it was about 5-6 times, i challenged her, she changed the subject. So we talked about how it's expensive, yeah I know (I didn't ask for money). She thinks there's no way you can get hired on at a company without having worked your way up from the bottom of that company. And no one has jobs that do that. I told her we have 3 at my company. "3 what, queers?" No, 3 HR managers. I finally told her I had to go eat breakfast and I'll call her later. Livid, that's me.

What she doesn't realize is that she's giving me something to fight against, and that makes my conviction even stronger. I should be thanking her.


Oh my.

Challenging grandma's...

Uhmm, yay? Gotta love relatives.
