A Transgender’s Horrid High School Story

At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to a story about a transgender man names Casey Hoke, who went through some horrid harassment during his time at DuPont Manual High School, right here in the heart of Louisville Metro.

He was a senior back in 2015 when his principal, Jerry Mayes, saw him coming out of the men’s bathroom, confronted him, and began questioning him about things that were honestly none of the principals business!

The article is gut wrenching, if I do say so myself. I instantly became full of anger. First of all, if you see a ‘problem’ with a student, you take it up with the students parents, you don’t take matters into your own hands and begin questioning things in their personal life, I don’t care how old the student is.

But it doesn’t stop there. He did more than ask the student what procedures he’s had on his genitalia, — yeah you heard me correctly, he asked those kinds of questions— he also had multiple meetings with his teachers regarding the subject, even though they were already aware of Casey’s situation, due to the fact that an article about his story was posted in the school board a couple of years prior.

When asked by Casey, why any of this would concern him, all he was able to mumble out was “if I get into trouble because of you…”

excuse my French, but how fucking disgusting are we trying to be in the year 2017? Or even 2015??? Plus, if everyone literally knew about it since his freshman year and hasn’t complained, then where would the problem be? Besides in your own small minded brain? …

Anyways, In this article, you will also see that the principal also called teachers “cute” little pet names, even after they asked him not to, which made said teachers feel very uncomfortable. And let’s not even dig into the fact that he strongly opposed Manual’s Black Student Union & Gay Straight Transgender Alliance, but made sure to take full credit for.

If you ask me, I think this so called principal should be let go. He overstepped many boundaries within a single year of holding his position. He doesn’t deserve the title. He clearly has some issues he needs to work out before taking on such a big responsibility of making sure a building full of students and teachers are all well taken care of.

I’m very happy to help spread Casey’s word and to help bring light to the situations we face here in Louisville.

I had my own incidents in middle and high school, so I know it’s bigger than one school or one person. Time for Louisville to step into the new millennium.

Hartford not so Innocent

I’m sure everyone has heard about the poor young woman who was constantly terrorized at her university dorm.

It happened just a couple of days ago and it has already taken the internet by storm!

Imagine going to school to further your life and future career with other young adults who have the same ambitions, & end up being so disrespected, discriminated, and degraded solely based on the color of your skin. That’s what happened to poor Chennel Rowe.

Every day, her racist ass roommate, Brianna Brochu, terrorized her by wiping her used tampons on her belongings, unleashing her bodily fluids on her belongings, etc., and was even stupid enough (thank god) to post it all over her Instagram page.

That’s one thing I love about these stupid criminals, they always out themselves… isn’t God great?! Karma always wins.

It’s sad that poor Chennel couldn’t defend herself, but that’s also the beauty. She didn’t have to jeopardize her future for some dumb, immature, racist little girl. Karma handled that situation for her.

I sincerely hope that miss Chennel knows that there are thousands of people who are on her side! I am one that stands with you! Don’t let this dummy derail you from your goals! You do you girl!

I hope little miss racist gets her full sentence. She deserves everything that comes her way.

Posted below are some screenshots and more information regarding the topic.

Let me know what you think!

White Washing Nazi

On Saturday, August the 12th, the world would meet its rip in history. This day held the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which was a white nationalist movement. Within minutes of the noon start time, police had the rally dispersed, but it didn’t end quickly enough, as there were many clashes between rally-goers and counter-protestors, & we mustn’t forget about the torch lit pre-rally march, which was held Friday night, that descended into violence.

During this white nationalist march, a Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counter-protestors, killing one and injuring nineteen.

The woman killed in the crash was a 32 year old paralegal, named Heather Heyer. It’s very interesting that a woman who spends every day of her life standing up for people who can’t be heard, was at a rally, counter-protesting for all of the Americans who continue to go unheard. I hope she rests in heavenly peace.
Her murderer, you know, the 20 year old scum from Ohio that rammed his car into a crowd of people, James Alex, was charged with second degree murder.

The scene in the white house is almost as disgusting as the weekend rally. It literally took Trump two days to say anything regarding the topic, & when he did, he didn’t even give condolences or even speak the name of the poor woman that lost her life. He did, however, blame the left just as much as the right, saying that the counter-protestors were the violent ones… Yeah, it made me stumble too.
His excuse for taking so long to even speak on the topic was that he wanted to gather all of the facts before making a remark about it, which is hysterically funny, since he has never waited to gather any facts or evidence before opening his nasty mouth.

When I watched the video of the rally, it really began to set in that this is happening on our own soil. It’s no longer watching videos to see the violence overseas, now it’s just as simple as stepping outside and witnessing it all in your backyard, and that’s quite scary, like, legitimately scary. I think we will have another civil war before we have WWIII.

A lot of celebrities and well known people, like New York City Housewife, Carole Radziwill, are very unhappy with the 45th, & are not holding back what they have to say. Even the Supreme Court had a few choice words. It really is sickening how the 45th acts, & people still respect him.

God be with us all.

Amber and Piers: Nudity vs Feminism 

Twitter is an infamous site to get all the celebrity tea and drama. It’s like a live version of reality and it doesn’t even cost a penny. Just three days ago, Amber Rose and Piers Morgan let it all hang out! 

I guess you could say that Morgan initiated it by giving his opinion, which there’s nothing wrong with. Here’s the tweets between the two!


The ratchet & disrespect was real! But I honestly felt like Piers was holding it down! He even through a little bit of shade. 😂 

If you’ve seen Amber’s bare photo – which anyone with any social media accounts surely have – then you can see what all the discussion is about!

I’ve seen a lot of reports from feminism magazines bashing Piers, saying he was attacking Amber and bashing her. 

I do understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I respectfully call bs on the matter. He didn’t do anything wrong except give his opinion while stating that women shouldn’t have to bare all just to feel empowered, and I agree. 

Do you honestly think showing your 🐱 on the internet is going to make people respect you and give you power? 

Piers even shares this letter that Pop singer, Pink wrote:


I do feel that we as grown adults can do whatever we please with our lives. Amber can spread it for the world to see, do you boo. She’s clearly got the money and fame, so she outranks a lot of us. 

I know it’s freedom of expression, and we express ourselves in our own ways. But my thing is, it gets hard to take things seriously when there are shenanigans tied with them. But that’s what controversy is all about. It gets you talking, researching and defining what things are. It gets you involved.

Now, we don’t really know what goes on in Amber’s head when she does her outlandish acts, again, it’s just her type of expression, which is why I’d love to see her and Piers together in a room, hashing it out about their ideas on femenism. 

Now one thing I have with Piers is, he brought my woman, Lady Gaga, into it. What did she even have to do with their conversation? And amber did the same with Adam Levine: 


Piers didn’t have a respond for this. 

I really do hope they have a sit down and Converse about their opposing views on feminism. It would be miraculous to see them gain a mutual understanding and common ground.

Pulse: One Year Later 

It’s been a year since the tragic accident in Orlando Florida, when crazed and sickened Omar Mateen shot up the Pulse nightclub, which is a LGBTQ friendly club were such members can go and enjoy themselves. But that wasn’t the case for 49 people that night. 

I want this to be a huge reminder for everyone, which really connects to my previous blog, that we have so much to fight for, and accomplish. This attack was one of the biggest hate crimes to hit on American Soil. People were murdered for being who they were meant to be. 

Pulse Victims, 2016

It’s hard to imagine that we still face these situations in the new millennium, as we should be way past these types of unnecessary situations. But I want this to be a huge billboard for the quacks that say there is no homophobia, no anti-gay laws, etc. especially since we’re still struggling to be recognized as regular human beings like everyone else. 

Then there are those who don’t even care. Nicki Minaj tweeted this just a few days after the incident: 

It’s completely fine to have your own beliefs and what not, everyone is entitled and unique in their own way… but this? Absolutely no remorse or sympathy for the lives that have been lost? Disgusting. 

But it’s not even just Nicki. 

Some of the parents of the victims never even claimed their bodies after the shooting. Yes, you heard me correctly on that. Why, Do you ask? Because they don’t accept their children for being gay… how heartbreaking, htat even in death, some of these poor souls couldn’t find love and acceptance. Might I remind you all that some of these people would just be turning 22, 23 years old. These were literally babies.  Hell, even the ones that were older, in their 40s and 50s, should be considered babies, for the fact that there is not a point in time when someone says or should ever say: “they’re old enough, it’s ok if they die.” 

Homophobia is real and very much alive today. I don’t know what’s worse, the man killing these innocent people, or the parents that reject them, even in death. They’re both pretty neck and neck if you ask me. 

This should honestly be the new reason and slogan for our pride month, because this is what we fight for, this is what we want justice for, not some damn fictional monster named babadook! 


It’s irrelevant to me if the crazed murderer claimed to be apart of isis or not. That’s no excuse to let this kind of tragic situation slide. This one incident may have been for “isis” but that doesn’t mean that everyone that gets bashed, bullied and murdered on the daily isn’t from someone who is a homophobe. 

It warms my heart to see so many people posting in favor and memory of the pulse victims. It lets me know that some of us still remember and are stricken by the pain to this day. Let them Rest In eternal Peace, because that’s what they deserve. Let’s not allow their murders to be in vain!

God Bless Thy Nation

Come one, come all

We are ready for the fall!

Trump wins the presidential election by a whopping 279-228 electoral votes, though Hillary did lead in the popular votes (59,392,837 – Trump) (59,599,237 – Hillary). The nation literally fell into shell shock, even the ones who were on Trump’s side. Nobody truly excepted it. He won 30 out of the 50 states that make up this beautiful country.

There are a lot of mixed feelings and emotions floating around this country, and its only the first day after the election. I’ll be the first to say that I am pleased that Hillary didn’t win, but I’m not completely pleased with Trump, neither.

Here are my reasons why:

His campaign trail was a little messy. He made it very aware that he wanted to ship all immigrants back to their home countries, he wanted to change the laws that have been previously passed by other presidents, specifically the law allowing gays to marry, aka marriage equality, and not to mention him outbursts on women.

Now, I’ve done my research, I’ve watched the campaign from beginning to end. I do support his outlooks on abortion, unlike Hillary, who believed that getting a late abortion is acceptable, because full term babies don’t have rights. I support him in wanting to take out isis. I support his becoming ‘friendly’ with Russian president, Putin, to prevent World War 3. I support him trying to fix the corruption in our government.

He already has a plan for the first 100 days in office, which is, interesting, to say the least. He will introduce “broader legislative measures” such as:

  • Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act
  • End the Offshoring Act
  • American Energy and Infrastructure Act
  • School Choice and Education Opportunity Act
  • Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act
  • Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act
  • End Illegal Immigration Act
  • Restoring Community Safety Act
  • Restoring National Security Act
  • Clean Up Corruption in Washington Act

Some of his ideas have changed, such as the immigration deportation. This outlook went from removing all illegal immigrants, to removing the criminal illegal immigrants.

I honestly felt a lot better when I found out this information. If Trump can open his eyes and see that not everyone falls under the same category, and keep immigrants here that follow the law and rules, that just want to better their lives, then he can show how good of a person, that he wants everyone to believe.

But one thing I struggle with, is the LGBT community… I know he has flip flopped on the topic quite a bit, inevitably wanting the marriage choice to go to the states, while wanting to originally overthrow the ruling on Obergefell vs. Hodges, which passed marriage equality, due to his belief that marriage should be more traditional. While his vice president, Mike Pence, believes gay people can become straight, through electroshock therapy…. HUH?

I really hope that he does his job right, and makes America great again, in all the RIGHT PLACES! How do you think these next 4 years will pan out?

Equality For All… Almost!

This is a big year for the LGBT community, specifically on the 26th of June, when the Supreme Court ruled in Obergrfell vs. Hodges, in which all 50 states must license and recognize gay marriage. Guam, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands, & the Northern Mariana Islands also recognize same sex marriage. The gay community, including myself, wept tears of joy that day.

Two years prior to this astounding achievement in our history, June 26th 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that section 3 of defense of marriage act was unconstitutional. DOMA forbade federal government from recognizing same sex marriage, in which Hawaii fought to enact in 1996. I’m glad to say that is now officially history.

Of course, with all the glory, also comes the hate and anger. Nearly a year after the Supreme Court ruling, 49 beautiful U.S. patrons lost their lives at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. What hatred do you have in yourself that is so extreme that you must take the lives of innocent people? To destroy their family’s lives?

That’s what’s nice about America, this is supposed to be the land of the free. We should be able to live the way we freely wish to live, as long as it doesn’t break the federal laws that are set in place to make America a safe place to live. Last time I checked, this is a religious belief issue, which, if I’m correct, we keep separate from government.. Unless that law has also changed?

We still have work to do, though. The transgender community is still struggling to find their way into the ‘freedom’ of things. The same goes for pansexual, along with the other sexual preferences in existence. But I have good faith, that there are plenty of good hearted people out there that understand that us as humans want to be free, happy, and loved.

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE RECOGNIZED AND TO BE HAPPY!
