I think the most Slytheriny Slytherin there ever was was Slughorn. He was so freaking ambitious, but he wasn’t a particularly great wizard himself. So he cultivated a little following of great wizards to do all the work for him. He was never evil or mean or cruel like a dark…
Lesbian teacher fired for being pregnant finds tons of support -
For the last nine years, Barb Webb has been a teacher at Marian High School, an all-girls Catholic school in Michigan. She’s been with her partner Kristin Lasecki for five years, and this summer she notified her employer that they were expecting a baby.
Shortly after, she was fired, and she thinks it’s because of her “nontraditional pregnancy.” She was reportedly given the chance to resign with health benefits if she stayed quiet about the ordeal, but decided to speak out instead.
Now, thousands of people online and offline have rallied to support the teacher. This weekend, protesters went to the school with signs proclaiming their support, including alumni who have promised to send their daughters to another school. The response on social media has been huge as well.
One of Webb’s supporters was Maureen Francis, who graduated from the school in 1983. She wrote Marian a letter informing them she would no longer be donating and didn’t plan to send her daughter there. But she was still surprised when the 11-year-old asked to come with her to the protest.
"She said, ‘I want to go, are you kidding me? What they did was wrong,’" Francis told The Huffington Post. "I was so proud of her."
Alumnae like Francis, as well as current students, have led the charge to support Webb. A Facebook group was started by alumna Rachel Chapman Kopera; it has more than 3,000 members, and 700 people have signed a petition on Change.org. In a letter, alums stress that the decision to fire Webb conflicts with what they were taught as students and urge Marian to start a diversity club.
"I still wear my Marian High School ring (see my right hand) because I’m proud to be a part of a school that stands up for social justice and diversity," Kopera captioned a Facebook photo of herself holding a sign supporting Webb. “Let that be Marian’s legacy.”
Always defend women who defend themselves, their families, their bodies, their love. Always, always, always.
