Tell me you’re white without saying ‘I’m white’.

the school i went to in the canadian boonies was minority white, both in terms of the teaching staff/administration and the student body (one year we got a mention in the provincial news for being 25% white, 25%, east asian, 25% south asian, 25% misc); presumably the administration altered zero policy to fit their needs since i'm hearing wildly different implementations here, it's been illuminating to read in any case

Ally McBeal genuinely seems like a weird cultural fever dream in hindsight.

Remember when they sent Robert Downey Jr. there at the height of his drug and legal problems?

I was under direct orders not to die




I grew up in a small town on the Canadian prairie and the principal used to hit kids with rulers and belts when I was in elementary school. If you were REALLY bad you got the belt on your bare rear end. This was not questioned by other adults either. Teachers were okay with it, parents were okay with it. I'd go home and mention someone from my class was sent to the office and got the belt. And I'm not even 40 yet. I think that poo poo died in cities a number of years earlier, at least near where I was.

Canada also still has federally funded Catholic schools, which are insane and bad.

Reminds me of how the first scene in Heathers involves a fake school shooting.

And it's completely trivialized. "He used blanks! They'll just suspend him for a few days."

There’s a 1997 ep of The Simpsons where Bart and Lisa go to military school. One joke has Bart undergo weapons training and the instructor assumes that since he goes to public school he must already have extensive experience with “small arms” and so immediately hands him a grenade launcher.

BUT DID ANY OF YOU STOP FOR ONE SECOND TO CONSIDER HOW THIS EFFECTS ME PERSONALLY?! NO YOU DID NOT BECAUSE I AM STUPID AND UNIMPORTANT! GOOD JOB! KEEP IT UP!

Seriously though. Ignore me. For your health.

Not federally funded. Education is a provincial/territorial responsibility in Canada. You may be thinking of how Ontario has two public school systems, one of which is Catholic; this is a requirement in the province’s constitution.

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

It drives me crazy that all the people i know who are fine with this completely lose their poo poo when i bring up elder abuse. Like lots of the things I saw or had done to me as a punishment growing up would now be considered sexual assault. I can't even be around a lot of family members anymore because we can't find compromise between "never hit a woman or an old person" and " if you pull my hair, hit me, or throw boiling water on me again I will beat the everloving poo poo out of you".

The shittiest part is that most Ontario Catholic School boards require staff to be Catholic. Like you need to give them your baptism records and/or a reference from your priest. Even admin staff.
