So, the cisCenter is having a “Pansexual Pirate Party”. I don’t know why or when or what’s involved, I don’t like parties and I don’t like that place. The title, quite frankly, annoys me. Maybe it wouldn’t if I knew jack about it- but since I don’t, it seems like it’s just done for alliteration. Maybe they’re justifying it by saying that they’re “bringing awareness” to pansexuals. But a friend of mine saw the ad for it and asked if that meant that all sexualities were allowed to come. I explained that pansexual was a sexuality in itself and she then asked if only pansexuals are allowed to be pirates or something. I don’t know either. If this is their version of “raising awareness”, it’s a fairly sad version. And if this is them making it a “themed” party that’s LGB related, it’s in the cisCenter. Kind of obvious.
Also, on an unrelated note, our school’s [cis]Women’s center (we have a lot of cisCenter) put up a thing for people to write what they’d like to see from the women’s center. Someone had written Judith Butler. I wrote in Calpernia Addams and trans-inclusive feminism and clarified a bathroom debate that it’s not ONLY gender neutral bathrooms, but IN ADDITION TO. You know, for those of us who aren’t “either” gender. Or are but live in a society that basically stops us from using either bathroom.
