Deities need to be respected in their own spaces. Failure to do so may result in consequences such as painful electric shocks from a goblet of sacramental wine.
*laughs* I remember when I was a young teen witch and a rock on my altar actually exploded sending shrapnel throughout my room. I learned better after that.
walkingthehedge said: Careful, you’ll have the French-cultured Canadiens all over you. And trust me, French Canadien and Anglo Canadian are different cultures :)
But does it matter? Is the USA that was derived from the French even vaguely similar to the USA…
Yes, it matters. It matters a great deal. Living on the river between Quebec and Ontario, right in our nation’s capitol has taught this western girl that lesson.
French Canadians are Canadian, but they also have their own culture and describing them as part of Anglo-America is … not respectful to put it lightly.
And do you think the same doesn’t apply to Latin America?
Did you even read the whole of my post?
It’s more problematic to have the audacity to lump all of Latin America together, and then list “America” instead of the USA and Canada and the Caribbean.
If you want to generalize Latin America, which is necessary when discussing broad general cultures and legacy and geopolitics, then it is fine to generalize Canada/USA as Anglo America and the Caribbean as Carib America.
Unless you can come up with another term, in the same idea as Carib America and Latin America, that suits your fancy?
I’m not going to speak of Latin America, as i have no personal understanding of it. Just as you, clearly an ignorant American, have no understanding of Canadian culture. I agree the current cultural divides used today are less than great, I simply was pointing out that your proposed alternatives are also lacking in understanding.
My French friends whom I linked this too suggested that you are probably simply trolling. so I’ll wish you luck and a nice day and be at the end of it.
"Clearly an ignorant American" you self righteous pretentious cunt I’m Colombian malparida hijueputa desgraciada atrevida culicagada ascerosa actually go fuck yourself get the fuck out of here
THAT’S WHY I’M TRYING TO FIND A TERM THAT GROUPS BOTH THE USA AND CANADA IN THE SAME WAY THE CARIBBEAN NATIONS AND LATIN AMERICA IS GROUPED SO Y’ALL DON’T GET TO BE SET APART LIKE SPECIAL SNOWFLAKES
Just for calling me a cunt, I am now going to troll you with Canadian poetry:
I am writing this on a strip of white birch barkthat I cut from a tree with a penknife.There is no other way to express adequatelythe immensity of the clouds that are passing over the farmsand wooded lakes of Ontario and the endless visibilitythat hands you the horizon on a platter.I am also writing this in a wooden canoe,a point of balance in the middle of Lake Couchiching,resting the birch bark against my knees.I can feel the sun’s hands on my bare back,but I am thinking of winter,snow piled up in all the provincesand the solemnity of the long grain-shipsthat pass the cold months moored at Owen Sound.O Canada, as the anthem goes,scene of my boyhood summers,you are the pack of Sweet Caporals on the table,you are the dove-soft train whistle in the night,you are the empty chair at the end of an empty dock.You are the shelves of books in a lakeside cottage:Gift from the Sea by Anne Morrow Lindbergh,A Child’s Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson,Anne of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery,So You’re Going to Paris! by Clara E. Laughlin,and Peril Over the Airport, oneof the Vicky Barr Flight Stewardess seriesby Helen Wills whom some will rememberas the author of the Cherry Ames Nurse stories.What has become of the languorous girlswho would pass the long limp summer evenings readingCherry Ames, Student Nurse, Cherry Ames, Senior Nurse,Cherry Ames, Chief Nurse, and Cherry Ames, Flight Nurse?Where are they now, the ones who shared her adventuresas a veterans’ nurse, private duty nurse, visiting nurse,cruise nurse, night supervisor, mountaineer nurse,dude ranch nurse (there is little she has not done),rest home nurse, department store nurse,boarding school nurse, and country doctor’s nurse?O Canada, I have not forgotten you,and as I kneel in my canoe, beholding this visionof a bookcase, I pray that I remain in your vast,polar, North American memory.You are the paddle, the snowshoe, the cabin in the pines.You are Jean de Brébeuf with his martyr’s necklace of hatchet heads.You are the moose in the clearing and the moosehead on the wall.You are the rapids, the propeller, the kerosene lamp.You are the dust that coats the roadside berries.But not only that.You are the two boys with pails walking along that road,and one of them, the taller one minus the straw hat, is me.
Trolling with poetry has to be the best type out there. Though I’d also like to point out that any simple grouping is going to be colonial and erase indigenous cultures from Baffin Island to Patagonia.
10 trans actors who weren’t offered Jared Leto’s role in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
This is violence against our community.
It is social violence, for it reinforces, nay, makes explicit the idea that “trans women are men.” If it does NOT say this, then why are there not more cis women being played by cis men in cinema?
It is economic violence as well, for it takes jobs THAT ARE OURS and gives them instead to cis men.
These are just ten CELEBRATED women who could have played that role, who could have had a shot at OSCAR gold tonight. And he took that from them.
