“Fleur Delacour, whose whole narrative is wrapped up in her physical beauty until the point where she stands up and says hey, it’s not. Fleur Delacour, the Beauxbaxton’s champion, Fleur Delacour who stands with the Order, Fleur Delacour who loves and fights with fierce devotion […] How is this someone to hate?” (x

This flag does not represent your sacred 'ideals'

The 50-star flag wasn’t even adopted until 1960, after the acceptance of Hawaii into the Union. If anything, this flag is the banner under which every single color revolution and regime change which has taken place since in the name of ‘stemming the tide of communism,’ spreading 'freedom’ or democracy,’ or “liberating” people.

The only flag that could possibly represent the 'ideals’ upon which this nation was founded are those flown at the manifestation of those ideals:

Hello transpeople and allies of WA state.

There’s supposed to be another bathroom bill being introduced almost identical to North Carolina’s mess of a bill. I ain’t fucking around, this is real.  (WA Legislature site) 

Here’s a magical thing that we can actually do, while CALLING YOUR REPS IS THE BEST WAY TO LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD (I’ll get to that later), you can also apparently comment on the bill. 

If you want to read it, go to the link in the header and scroll until you see “Original document” and click it for a pdf.

NOTE THAT THIS WILL WORK ONLY FOR THOSE THAT LIVE IN WASHINGTON STATE!

ANYWAYS, lemme’ show you how it’s done! Again, go to the link in the first header in bold. you’ll get to a page that looks like this.

Then you click on the thing that says “Comment on this bill,” here it is 

Fill out your info on that page! Then scroll down and you find a position button and a comment thing where you can write something that will be sent to your district’s representatives 


NOW FOR THE PART ABOUT CONTACTING YOUR REPS BY PHONE. IF YOU NOTICED, THE COMMENT PAGE CAN FIND YOUR DISTRICT FOR YOU.

Just like that ^^^^ and like most sites, there is a directory at the bottom of the page and the first column has what you need. 

Then you get the map and you fill out your info and it will list your reps in a box overlapping the WA state map.

The green text that have the names of your reps will link you to a page with all their info and more importantly, their phone numbers. They might have two numbers and adresses for offices but they all have an Olympia office and phone number. (Though, nothing is stopping you from calling both) 

Phone calls are way harder to ignore and a good thing (for all my socially anxious friends, it’s not uncommon to be directed to a voice mail.) You can have a script, state your opinion on the bill, and it doesn’t even have to be all that long!!

So, please, if you can, CALL, COMMENT, MAKE A RACKET. (don’t be cruel or violent but definitely state your frustrations about the bill) 

Also if you don’t live in WA, please just signal boost for those that do. I tried to make it as easy as possible to navigate the WA Legislature site.
