A disappointment and a distraction
Everett and I won’t be bowling with the Tuesday night league anymore, we submitted our two week notice yesterday and to my knowledge we’ve received no response yet from the President or Secretary. It sucks, because I like bowling, I didn’t realize how much until I knew I wouldn’t be doing it anymore this seaason, however it’s worth it to get away from a cowardly barely-managed league staff. After even more information about the incident was finally revealed to us, it turns out that the complaint was made to the league by the bowling center on behalf of either a customer or an employee, we still don’t know which. As Ev noted in the car on the way home that night, if we were in DC, they couldn’t do this, but the alley is in Virginia and while a legal battle isn’t out of the question, you really have to pick your battles. I told Ev that even if he wanted to go through with that, I know from experience that a hostile environment doesn’t stop being hostile just because they’re forced to accede.
So no more bowling and seeing as it’s National Coming Out Day, I believe that I shall come out against US Bowling, 100 S Pickett St, Alexandria, VA for their transphobic discrimination.
I won’t say that if you go to US Bowling, you won’t have a good time, or you won’t be treated well. You may have, as Everett and I did, many many good and fun experiences bowling there. But as October 3, 2006 I can say…
Don’t bowl there.
Now for something a little more on the light side, if not a bit disturbing: cooking4models. I’m firmly convinced this is a joke, and only went there via a real cooking blog I read, but I couldn’t help but laugh, even moreso when I got to the October 9th entry. It seems like someone’s trying to take the piss out of perceptions of modeling, and if not.. if it’s real.. like I said, disturbing.
