Failed when it mattered

I'm just going to be blunt: fuck the NHL. 
There's been a few stories recently about teams or players not wearing pride themed equipment for the warmup during team Pride nights because of whatever excuse players want to manufacture. Lot's of "oh well" platitudes from the teams and the league, giving them a pass, but let's be clear: the NHL didn't have the spine to stand up when it mattered most.

There's no allyship when you collapse when the situation is tough. The NHL really just wanted to look good with the LGBTQ+ community, they didn't want to actually support it. They are the epitome of rainbow capitalism. 

Xtra* Magazine has a great article that sums it beautifully: The NHL’s commitment to diversity doesn’t extend to trans people.

So, basically, fuck the NHL. No interest in them anymore.

I am so angry at the harm

I don't know how else to put it. I am furious.

I will cut people out of my life for this

The Conservative Party of Canada just voted to added blocks on gender affirming medical care for trans kids and to end race-based hiring. I'm done being polite to people in my life when it comes to this.

Bill Mahar is weak

The surest sign of a weak man is a man who feels the need to assert his manliness to the world. Bill Mahar is a weak man.
