So is Spectrum going to happen again this year?|
I talked to filippone in september and he's a bit iffy about it all.
(because of the student and parent reaction to the Day of Silence last year)
And I repsect whatever decision he makes regarding the club, as long as it's within reason.
But i plan on discussing it with him again.
i think the reaction is precisely the reason we need the club and the day of silence, and the day of silence shouldnt have the whole BS about being against all discrimination
The day of silence won't be happening this year through spectrum.
Activism on our part only causes trouble for the administration. And as much as I hate authority, I love Mr. Filippone. And i don't want to cause him trouble.
yeah i guess you're right but still its kind of upsetting that we cant have it cause of the stupid homophobes
True. I really want to do something this year. But anything i can think of can potentially cause Filippone some conflict.
If you can think of anything that will get the word out there, without causing him trouble, I'd love to hear it.
well maybe we can organize some sort of event outside of school, though that would require a bit of money
Fillipone is going to say "Maybe" as long as he can until the school year is over.
No adult in the school will sponsor. A bunch of us asked a bunch of different people, and everyone said no.
I hope that maybe you guys can find someone next year. Maybe a new teacher who has no idea about anything.
I agree with sarah and j on this one.
Regardless, good luck.
I'm thinking next year you'll have much better luck than this year considering you have all the same shellshockedfromlastyear administration that you're trying to convince.
Bah I dunno. I'm a Secretary of pride in college now. Yeah!
If you guys want any ideas for next year like games besides the dumbass one I always played... I know more now and i'm even more neurotic ;-)
you should email me any specific problems you have. i fee like a dick taking up comment space.
I have great ideas for pride groups. i just would like to speak to you first to find out the whole aura of your gsa. is it social? activist? support? a little of everything? what do you want to accomplish this year? etc. yeah def email me or im me.
fuckin homophobia, it sucks, oh well
