Have you got your kicking boots on?

Hi everyone, I know I never write. I am pretty terrible at this whole journal thing just now apparently. But I just wanted to drop you some important links.

BASICALLY, that forced sterilisation law that I talked so much about all last year? Not going anywhere, apparently, despite the fact that basically everyone except for the Christian Democrats has said it needs to be gone. Because you know, we can't upset the Christian Democrats! We are apparently cool with continuing to sterilise people against their will before we will let them change their legal gender in order to not upset the Christian Democrats!

Here is a petition you can sign.

Here is info about a demonstration that will be taking place on wednesday (info in Swedish) and here is an english translation of that information.

(no subject)

In happier news, my results for the Swedish course I took last term:

Spoken & listening comprehension: A
Grammar: B
Written & reading comprehension: B
Realia (= Swedish history and culture mostly): pass (no grade given for this bit, just pass/fail, but he wrote several + symbols after "pass" on my final paper, so I'll take that as a hell yes.)

I am especially shocked and amazed about the A, since they spent all term telling us that People Don't Get As On This Course, since it is judged more or less as though one were a college-level (err, that is to say, something like age 15-19) Swedish person.

Basically I am awesome? :D

One term left and then I can study regular Swedish courses as much as I want! :D
