Salt is fantastic…
…just not in cuts. Metaphorical cuts.
I’ve been working on a club constitution with a certain someone. Last year I did a lot of leg work so that I could get a Trans- group started on campus. After a while I started to hear about some dude who was looking for me. He’d come up to people who lived on my floor, he’d e-mail my residence hall manager, and he’d leave notes for me at the GLBT office.
I finally got back to him after he tracked down someone who lived on my floor and we met for coffee. He was really interested in starting a Trans- and Intersex support group. Fantastic! He had been on campus before me [he was back from a tour of duty] so I let him take over the leg work.
He told me about how he had been hanging out at the coffee show [where we were meeting] looking for people who looked trans or queer and that’s how he had found the person who lived on my floor and many of my trans friend. I wasn’t chill with his methods but most of my friends didn’t seem to mind when I talked to them about it later.
He told me the constitution for our club would be done around Thanksgiving and we parted ways.
To the best of my knowledge, it was never completed.
When I try to bring it up the club or the person who I talked with in that coffee show all of my friends cough, avert their eyes, rub their necks, change the subject, laugh, change the subject, but more often than not a combination of the former.
Something went down and I’m out of the loop. I can guess. My guess is going to be pretty correct but I don’t know the story.
Fingers crossed this new group doesn’t step on any toes.
