Barack Obama made history on Monday when he became the first president to speak about the Stonewall uprising and the gay rights struggle during an inaugural speech. While many in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community were thrilled with the mentions, an 11-year-old transgender girl named Sadie wondered why the President didn't directly address trans people, too.
Transgender kids like me are not allowed to go to most schools because the teachers think we are different from everyone else.
When they grow up, transgender adults have a hard time getting a job because the boss thinks the customers will be scared away. It would be a better world if everyone knew that transgender people have the same hopes and dreams as everyone else. Though Sadie has been openly discriminated against, her mother says that she "isn't shy or ashamed of who she is," and adds, "I'm always 'on' when we go out because I never know when she'll strike up a conversation with the person in front of her in line at Trader Joe's. Sage says she encouraged Sadie to write the essay because she thought "it might help empower her and overcome any feelings of oppression." In the end she says that she wants Sadie "to know that she has a voice. It’s quite dated to consider text messaging a low-grade form of communication when articulation by way of smart phone has effectively become the modern day equivalent of a love letter. If he responds to your text without another question, don’t respond to his statement. He probably just wants to watch TV and leave the non-existent buttons on his phone unpressed.
Your mom leaves out vowels in her text messages, meanwhile my mom is over here sending me a million different smiley faces in each text message. The only topic I believe inappropriately averted was the essence of proper text response timing. I had a boss once who was addicted to her iphone and would insist on texting as our main form of communication. Sometimes I think I am with the zeitgeist when it comes to communication, and other times, I think the world’s gone crazy.
I would also add that it’s good to wait a few minutes to write back, if the other person is as well. As a foreigner from a middle-to-eastern European country (Poland, to be precise) I can tell ya (!): it gets only more complicated!
I’m from the netherlands and used to use lot of english phrases as well, whilst talking and whilst texting but after spending half a year abroad (where I spoke english all the time and eventually started thinking in english) I came back to the netherlands longing to speak my mothertongue again. When I was a teenager I downloaded all my text messages from my phone to my computer, and I’m glad that I did it.
Transgender people are not allowed the freedom to do things everyone else does, like go to the doctor, go to school, get a job, and even make friends.


The schools get afraid of how they will talk with the other kids' parents, and transgender kids are kept secret or told not to come there anymore. Doctors are afraid of treating transgender patients because they don't know how to take care of them, and some doctors don't really want to help them. She was home schooled until this year and is now in fifth grade and attending public school. When she chats with people, she introduces herself as, 'Hi, I'm Sadie, my favorite color is pink, I'm vegan, and I'm transgender.
This one is rather usual considering the character restraint in #1 but according to another friend, restricting the use of acronyms in early messages may help catapult later messages.
You can send a nipple and you can send your face, but you can never send them in the same message. Your text message is not a social media tool and as such, the journalistic rule of thumb remains in tact and mandates that you get but three exclamation points over the course of your career (budding romance). Finally, be weary of text-message bombing (which is considerably different than photo bombing).
In fulfilling the guidelines of this monologue, you break almost every rule in some capacity, display your inability to countdown (eight and a half comes before eight,) and perhaps most dangerously: allude to emotional illness. I’m also married, though, which implies that occasionally, being who you are is rather endearing.
I’ve probably broken each and every one of these rules, during both long and very, VERY, short term relationships. Can we get a post about how to go about at least attempting a normal phone conversation without dramatic pauses that leave the person on the other end wondering if you have, in fact, died? Am I weird to think that texting can convey so much that gets lost in awkward phone conversations? Some people (me included) use English phrases while texting sometimes, like: miss you, wtf, and so on. I had a good laugh at some of them and cringed thinking that people actually do some of these. A vegan, she loves anything that "protects the environment," as well as reading, swimming, basketball and texting her friends. According to the author of this quote, (her name is Amelia and she loves horses in the literal sense not to the large genital sense,) in the first phases of conversation, shorter is always sweeter. This suggestion comes from a friend of mine who has more or less been out of the dating game a full decade. Now, are there any specific do’s and don’ts not listed here that you subscribe to? Between not re-reading and not giving a shit, you couldn’t understand anything that she said.


And it is usually something along a quotation, we are pretending to be Americans, we watch English-language TV shows in the original, oh aren’t we cool! She listens to Lady Gaga, Pink and Justin Bieber and wants to work for Green Peace when she grows up.
You can thoughtfully consider what will go into crafting the perfect message and in some instances, wholly create that immaculate vision.
She suggests that even though she does not agree with the following dramatization, it is likely a fantastic way to disengage the other end of your message. This is probs due to the fact that I actually use these in my everyday vocab, as in I dont just type and read them, I say them as well. They force uncomfortable conversational fodder and an inevitable dialogue about the weather. You are definitely not rolling on the floor and your ass has definitely not dispatched from your body due to my highly advanced sense of hilarity. Besides the physical benefits, there’s nothing greater about having a serious boyfriend than being able to rest all doubt on whether my next text will be the breaking point on our relationship. While it is ok with friends and such, its gets really difficult to read while a flirt goes on.
Sometimes my ear will begin to hurt and when that happens I will have to surmise that I have probably contracted brain cancer.
No matter what you think you have to say, how witty, charming, convivial it will be, there’s always tomorrow morning (and a pretty profound headache) to make up for short term radio silence.
If he uses an English ‘miss you’ instead our own native language, does it mean he means it less?
You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life.
I believe us non-english speakers need to get creative with our own languages before we forget just how rich they are! Two simple words in damn English, not even a sentence, and I go off overthinking for an hour! So: I am quite tolerant when it comes to texting, yes, I even learned to like the ?? or xD, you can use caps lock on me all you want.
