Another dot in the blogosphere?

First response?

Posted on: January 28, 2021

When I first saw this tweet…

… I wondered how soon this next tweet would emerge. It did not take long.

Why? The authorities here — all authorities here — do not enjoy unsanctioned protests. Given the pattern of authoritative responses, I expected no different.

School principals and teachers likely asked themselves: Was this my student? The protesters looked older, so they are probably working, in post-secondary institutes, or waiting to enter one. But schools are still concerned about their reputations by association.

The protesters were responding to this news: MOE denies stopping transgender student from getting hormone therapy. The protesters’ first response was about highlighting the treatment of LGBTQ students.

So what is our next collective response?
