Final year of University in the UK while going into constant lockdowns is fun
When the new doctor you see says that he thinks that ADHD is all environmental and that so many people come in having concentration problems and so therefore it’s a mass issue that isn’t a disorder (concentration problems is not immediately adhd, sir) and that you don’t necessarily need to keep trying meds 🙃

Saying that lately I have been bummed out because of the way people talk from where I come from (and from my generation), stumbling upon this link on Facebook made me smile.
Am so proud and happy to see young men from where I come from doing stuff like that, give me some fucking hope that shit can actually change, but also that our generation will maybe change this bashing coming from other provinces one day.
“ Three days ago, a secondary school student from the province, posted a video and a picture on his Instagram account of him and his friends proudly displaying their outfits with a feminist and inclusive message: the skirt to denounce the antiquated and sexist dress code of Quebec secondary schools, as well as to underline the tolerance that should be in place towards all genders and all ways of dressing. ”
The dressing code is absolute bullshit and female students (or at least those seen as female students) are always the one with the most restriction, where the male one don’t have too much of a problems unless it goes a little too far. Kind of restrictions that are there since my mother’s generation
(and older obviously), but people are always saying “yes well it was like that for me too” as if it was an argument for it to not change.
I hope we can see more of this in years to come, having the boys standing up with the girls against all this bullshit that have been in place for fucking decade without changing. Like, 2020 as been shit and society suck in general, but stuff like this makes me smile and gives me some hope that shit can actually change one day.
For those interested, I’ll leave a translated (by myself, since it’s an more Quebecker french in some parts it is a little harder to translate than France french) under the cut. Word already in English will be but in italic
I called it, I said people would glorify Harold and they are. He’s not a perv or a bad guy now he’s just a sad boi who got yelled at and was Bullied
i allude to this a lot but i also want to say outright.. i am so sick of the idea that trans women share every negative experience that trans men have and the only difference between the oppression we face is transmisogyny. stop pretending that trans men experience like………..Transphobia Lite™ and actually let us talk about our own experiences. it’s not transmisogyny to say that we face specific forms of discrimination that trans women dont. obviously it’s not “transmisandry”, that’s stupid, we’re not oppressed for being men. it mostly comes down to being afab and id generally call it misogyny (i understand why that’s controversial but it’s also accurate), but saying that doesnt mean that trans women magically have it better than us in any way (they dont). im sick of having to specify in any kind of post i make about the issues trans men face that i dont think trans women have it better. it goes without saying that they dont!!!!!! i dont wanna be sent hate for just talking about my life ughh
