Three things

1. My neck hurts, despite lots of rubbing. It's hard to turn my head. I hope this goes away soon.

2. I got to go home early today! Apparently the Director thinks I've been working hard. ^_^

3. Amusing conversation snippet between zaph and me, spurred by this article:

zaph: the one that really bothers me is this:
"No one is for bullying and harassment," Johnson said. "But that's cloaking their real message -- that homosexuality is good for society."
zaph: like. no, that isn't the real message. thanks for playing.
Me: "The Day of Silence was an event conceived of by students themselves in response to a very real problem of bullying and harassment they saw on their campuses," Jennings said. "The Day of Truth is a publicity stunt cooked up by a conservative organization with a political agenda; it's an effort by adults to manipulate some kids."
Me: That's a good point.
zaph: yeah. so true.
zaph: I love how they think people are trying to force homosexuality on people. it's just like the pro-lifers who think people are 'pro-abortion'. Um, no. Sorry.
Me: As rabid as the conservatives are on this point, the kids - though obviously some of them are horrible - they just aren't as convinced of it, methinks.
zaph: I mean, I'm open minded and all. But I'm not pro-homosexuality. I'm just... pro-... people. and pro-acceptance.
zaph: yeah, let's hope.
Me: Strange as it sounds, I'm not pro-homosexuality either. I'm pro-allowing-yourself-happiness.
Me: Which is why, yes, I do squee over het couples. ^_^
Me: Oh, and pro-allowing-OTHERS-happiness.
zaph: exactly.
zaph: in fact, I don't think there are many people at all who are 'pro-homosexuality'. I haven't heard many gay people tell me I should turn gay. Wait, I haven't heard any gay people tell me I should turn gay.
Me: Hee, if anyone is going to tell you that, it'll be a straight girl. Trust me.

So true.
