Found the link to this in a friend's journal ( filkertom ), and knew I had to spread the word and share:

Upstate New York High School Forces Girls To Advertise Their Periods

Story link: ]here[

On a personal note... This policy would have gotten me killed, had it been at my high school! I'm from rural Missouri, where the folks are not all that accepting of differences. I am intersexed (which means in this case that I was declared a boy at birth [thankfully, no "corrective" surgery happened], and at age 12 when I had my first period / started developing breasts, I was ordered by family and the school administration [Principal, Vice Principal, Superintendent, and the School Board Members] to not let anyone know! There's more to that struggle, but not pertinent here). So. You think learning to deal with your period is hard, try doing so by having to find a way to change your tampon in the boys' restroom without anyone finding out. In such a rural area, anyone different - even for medical reasons - is "queer" or a "geek" and would have the snot beaten out of them. So no way to sneak the tampons around? I would have quite literally been KILLED. Beaten about the head and shoulders until dead. I had my share of beatings for both being a geek and queer already. This would have put me in the "hunt-the-pansy-down-when-no-one-is-around-after-school-or-at-night" category.

Southwest Missouri was declared a National Disaster Area on Saturday, January 13th, 2007. My own personal experience within this will be coming when the emergency is over. I'll be posting a bunch of backdated entries (Yaaaay for paper journals!)

For those of you that don't belong to the forum (Ladies of Hack), I thought some of the threads just needed sharing :)

( You Know You're an OLD Gamer If... )


And there are wonderful discussions there :) Best forum I've ever found

Yes, as any of you British folk know already, tonight is Guy Fawkes' Night -- for you other folks, here's the answer to "What the hell is Guy Fawkes' Day?!?"

In other news...
This time of year is always hard on me, but I think it's going easier this year. I mean, I've a lot of distraction planned throughout the month, on top of National Novel Writing Month. With my favorite holiday being this month as well, I think I may make it though November without an attempt to, ah... hurt myself, for the first time in... nearly a decade

I think I'll cross post this to a couple of places

The delay in approvals was not purposeful, I spent from October 11th to October 26th in the hospital

We're focused on the LoH forums, yeah... but let's start some posting here, too!

Here's a question... I'll post it as a poll on the forums, too...

Everyone knows what the most important part of gaming is -- the snacks. What's your favorite gametime snacks of each type?

Quick and mess-less:
Gooey and drippy:
Drinks:
Pizza:

Sorry I took so long to approve the initial pending members... what with quitting my job and all I've had a busy weekend already -- oh, and go look at my latest entry in my personal journal for more lessons in stress

Anyway, welcome welcome welcome!!!

Um, yeah, that's pretty much all I have to say for now
