I'm doing pretty at avoiding the segregated bathrooms so far, if I do say so myself. *takes a bow* I've used two ladies' rooms and two men's rooms since I've started. So proud.
Why is it that so many groups of people automatically organize themselves by sex? I mean, I walk into the huge school cafeteria and you can point to pretty much any table and say if it's a 'girl's or guy's table'. Sure there are a couple mixed ones, maybe… two? Plus the odd boyfriend and girlfriend together, etc. But RARELY.
So I looked down at the table I usually sit at with Clueless, Shneer, Gennifer, Other and a couple other guys. I'm always so happy that I don't need to feel all gender-awkward. But I looked down and saw all the girls sitting on my left, all the guys on my right. I kind of… got angry. After I was through yelling at them all, I sat down directly in the middle of the two sides. Gennifer said that I was right, anyway, and moved to the equivalent poisition across from me. Gennifer gets bonus points. Then a boy (who is usually rather intelligent-seeming) has to say, 'But Flyby! Why aren't you aren't on either side?'
'AAGHH! BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE EITHER OF THESE GENDERS!!!'
Everybody stared at me for a moment, then started laughing crazily. Gah.
After, Clueless came over to my house (GRR!) and proceeded to make fun of 'gajindiak' WITH MY MOTHER. Oh, c'mon…
'Soon she'll realize that she doesn't need to invent a word for herself! There already is one, 'girl'!'
'HA, exactly! There's no such thing as a gaj!'
I glared. For a long time. I doubt they noticed. AAAAAAGH!
I don't actually feel like journaling right now, but I'll regret it if I don't. Sorry. My writing's all awkward.
On a side note, my Latin class is emulating MacAvity's. Four different people independently voiced wishes to go start a Carthage, and I got 3 Random Phrases:
'Are pomegranates generally a vain fruit?'
'Flyby, why would you ever marry a hamster?'
'I invented the name Domino! It's Greek!'
