This is my friend Sam and I.
We go to a private boarding school in Lake Tahoe, California.
Sam is pan-sexual and myself, well, I am a bit confused of who I am at the moment.
Last night, our school had a formal dinner and I asked Sam to be my date a week ago, he said yes!
The night of the formal dinner, Sam asked our assistant headmaster if he could wear a dress, he said no before he had even finished the question. When Sam and I showed up to the dinner, we were holding hands and I was also holding the roses Sam had gave to me. Sam was wearing mascara and lipstick. Our assistant headmaster freaked out and told Sam if he didn’t get the makeup off, he would be in massive trouble. Sam and I went back to the room to get his makeup off and came back down. The whole night, he was telling us how bizarre and weird we were. The night ended and the morning rose. We both have our first class of Friday with our assistant headmaster. He told the both of us if our relationship went any further, he would take us behind the barn and beat us. He also told us if we were in public school, we would have our dicks chopped off by other kids. After an entire period of being teased, Sam and I got together and thought we needed to do something about this. So here I am, Julien Nicol, 15 years old, asking for your help to spread this around and have it know that California allows private schools to discriminate against people with certain sexual preferences.
Signal boost the fuck out of this.
How fucking dare he?!
go. rebLOG. NOW.
I don’t know what public schools that headmaster is thinking of, but when I went to public school, not only was dick-chopping not even in the realm of possibility, the beating suggestion would have sparked a protest march and a sit-in from the student body, and anyone even talking to a student like that would be escorted from campus. Possibly in handcuffs.
This man should be arrested under about 6 different statutes.
Ugh. I need hockey back.
Because without it, my blog is starting to get like facebook— where I type a post or a response and then delete it, because I don’t need the drama.
I just booked some plane tickets to fly to Boston to watch the Boston Blades play the Montreal Stars.
I am so fucking stoked

Chanda Gunn, seen here celebrating a win at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, won a bronze medal with the team after a 4-0 victory over Finland.
Gunn, who has epilepsy, started her college career with University of Wisconsin. Unfortunately, her freshman year, she had to miss school and ice time due to grand mal seizures. Gunn, who had not disclosed her epilepsy to the school, spent almost a year in the hospital getting the seizures under control. Once her medications were adjusted, Wisconsin had moved on, and she had a hard time finding a school to play for.
Gunn joined Northeastern’s program as a walk on and worked her way up to a starting position with a scholarship setting several records along the way. In her junior season (2002-2003), Gunn put up a 1.37 GAA, good for second in the country, and led the nation with a .950 SV%. In her senior season (2003-2004), Gunn again led the nation with a .938 SV%, posted a 2.06 GAA, and was named Hockey East Player of the Year. She was a three time Patty Kazmaier award finalist and won the Hockey Humanitarian award in 2004.
In addition to her Olympic bronze medal, Gunn has also won gold (2005) and silver (2007) medals with Team USA at IIHF Women’s World Championships.
