Oh hey, September 23 was Celebrate Bisexuality Day. I never heard a word about it until Craig Ferguson mentioned it on his show. It appears to have been its 10th anniversary too.
Happy belated Bi-Day? Ah, hah hah. (See what I did there?)

i must say, of the teachers i've had, the English ones stood out. a good science one, a cool French one, but mostly English. good people, those grammar nerds.

On the flip side where English teachers actually saying something about it: My English teacher rocks. Whenever someone says "That's so gay!" She pounces on them and exclaims "EXCUSE ME?! I am not amused; thanks for pissing on my day." Then they fumble and she makes them say "Yes Ma'am!" She is awesome. She is also straight but a supporter, I would say.

She also uttered a quote that I think is my favorite line ever: "You could have sex with a hedgehog for all that I care, as long as I'm not the one washing the sheets." (Followed by laughter.)

That, and: "Evil. Little. Savage. Children." when she refers to the class sometimes. She grew up in the Bronx, so the accent makes it gold.

Excellent, excellent, excellent ad from the Marriage Equality campaign in Ireland:

i know. i was saying you plural, not you personally. ustedes, not tu. i should have said how can "someone" be a teacher.
sometimes writing like you speak doesn't work. :/

man, how can you be a teacher, someone who's supposed to be being an example to the kids, and not say ANYTHING! i wouldn't hail out and start a debate, but i definitely would at least say something like, "you know what homophobia means!" make that kid think twice. i can understand that perhaps as a teacher you might not want to take a stand, but to say nothing is condoning it! stupid people.
