Well, I had a foot stomping tantrum today. It was embarrassing and I felt immensely childish. Let me tell you about my week and try to justify my little spat.

On Sunday I posted about my bisexuality. I got so much love from it. I had friends tell me they love me, that I was brave, that they had already guessed or assumed. I even got an invitation from Commissioner James Condon, leader of the Salvation Army in NSW, QLD and ACT in Australia, to come to his office and chat about my journey. He told me about the wonderful conversation the world leaders of the Salvos are having in order to move forward towards equal rights. It’s a complicated issue, but the first steps have been made and I hope it won’t take too long for the whole organisation to fully support gay rights AND gay marriage.

I also had some negative blowback from it. I won’t go too much into it because some of the people who have been negative about this are close to me, and I don’t want this issue becoming bigger and more painful than it is. All I can say is that I am hurting and keep forgetting to eat.

Work has also been crazy. There has been some miscommunication, a bit of pressure to hurry up with some stuff at work, and having to juggle my jobs.

So when my beautiful, amazing, wonderful girlfriend said she would prefer to not hang out so she could do uni work and recover from a cold, I stomped my foot and said a swear word. And then I felt very embarrassed.

If we don’t do something to fix the glaring inequities in this economy, the pitchforks are going to come for us. No society can sustain this kind of rising inequality. In fact, there is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this and the pitchforks didn’t eventually come out. You show me a highly unequal society, and I will show you a police state. Or an uprising. There are no counterexamples. None. It’s not if, it’s when.

Good on him for recognizing the flaws in the system and trying to do something about it because he’s in the position where he can do something about it.

The best of humanity

This week I have been working with a kindergarten boy, we will call him Robby for confidentiality’s sake. He has a visual impairment and learning delays which makes life difficult for him and usually results in behavioural issues and bullying from other kids. I was not prepared for the way Robby’s class treated him.

Abigail helped Robby to find where to sit during group time. Molly took time away from her free time to help him to find his spelling book and put it on his table. Harry, when other kids tried to tease Robby in the same way they were teasing everyone, stood in front of him and told them to leave Robby alone. Frankie held Robby’s hands and danced with him as Robby made musical noises.

But one boy blew past the rest of the class, and the human race, by being the best friend anyone could ever have. At every lunch and recess Eli would hold Robby’s hand and help him in whatever they wanted to do. They played in the playground. They did sport class activities together. Once Robby started to get upset and yelled “Don’t touch me!”, and before I could get to him Eli held his hand, smiled and said “I’m here to help you Robby”.

When I sat down with Eli and Robby, Eli told me something that blew me away. He smiled big and said “Sometimes Robby needs help, and I’m his friend so I get to help him”.
