Sports can be more than entertainment

I just wanted to post this. I know that a lot of people have a negative attitude towards sports and especially with how much professional athletes get paid. I understand that. But for what it's worth, enjoying sports also can help people like me feel like part of a community. Some of us live vicariously through the actions of our favorite teams.
And when a player gets injured, people from around the country and even outside the US/Canada come together with #Faith and #Charity and brotherhood. Beauty can rise out of tragedy.

How Presentation Affects Representation - #DwhellOnIt Ep. 56

📺 - tinyurl.com/6cyw8k39

🗣 - "Taylor Lakhryst was an undecided voter who participated in a #CBC program called Face to Face during last year's federal election campaign. While being on the show gave her a chance to ask questions of a party leader, she felt CBC's production choices spoiled the experience by making her appear inept and powerless."

"While you expressed #Gratitude for the #Opportunity to provide visibility on the subject of abuse toward the 2SLBGTQIA+ #Community , you felt that #CBC made choices which diluted your appearance. It left you feeling, if not misrepresented, then underrepresented."

It feels as if #CBC chose to represent me as what I interpret as inept, powerless, and stuck with candy-coated concerns because who I am isn't palatable enough for Canadians who can't cope that #people such as myself strive to inspire and create #change .

#social platforms highlighted my segment as being of the utmost importance on an issue that had not been placed front and centre in the campaign until my appearance.

I continued to focus much of my argument on the treatment of my introductory video. I emphasized how problematic it was that this video highlighted "my love for #Sports and karaoke" while omitting more substantive #Comments about the importance of placing responsibility for bigotry and hate-based abuse on the abusers rather than the victims.

"I'm an undecided voter because" and "Let's be #leaders …" were extracted from two completely different sections of what I provided. #CBC created that line and not me, and I'm not sure if that is conducive to "accuracy."

"You stated that you followed all the directives given to you in advance by producers, yet you were the only one of the four participants given less than 40 seconds of airtime."

"You also reiterated that #CBC exercised poor judgment when it failed to include your exchange about pronouns with #ErinOToole .”

#CBC watered me down and presented me with the safest, most palatable and most comfortable image they could build based on the information I provided.

"Your complaint is, first and foremost, a reminder that the stories journalists tell are not really "theirs." They are the stories of real #people with real lives, ambitions, and concerns."

Journalistic Standards and Practices covers much ground regarding ethical #Journalism but doesn't cover specific circumstances.

"There is more debate to be had about editing your introductory video … it's clear that those producers took two risks with your video."

"On your frustration that the #question you asked on the show was "negotiated," … I worried it meant that programmers were forcing you to ask the questions that they wanted."

City Council Approves To Prefer #Kindness

🗣 - "Good for you, everybody, all you elected officials. Trying so hard to make an eight or nine, or whatever dumb page amount, document to say, "Hey, be nice to someone else." But we're not going to define what "nice" is, so then we don't get in trouble for it."

03:37 - Fascinating video! I like that you said you had to accept yourself. You didn't say anything about workouts worth the effort yet. Can you do a video when you talk about your workouts to help a girl out? Thanks.

10:57 - I've been on HRT for almost a week, and my chest is growing, but there's some shrinking I'm not comfortable with. In your experience, does the D shrink or the B's? I got told that it would be the testes, but it's not the case for me, so how is it for you?

A cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters!

Part of the wonderful work SCUFF does is helping those who have recovered from #Selfharming to fund a tattoo to cover up their scars. A tattoo which they may not otherwise have been able to get.

A wonderful way to celebrate their achievements!

Here is a cover up tattoo that has been funded by our amazing supporters! This tattoo was done by Eloise at Gilded Dagger Tattoo / @gildeddaggertattoo . Here's what our applicant had to say about the experience:

"Getting this scar cover up has given me so much more confidence with wearing short sleeves in public, I used to hide away in jumpers and jackets even when it was boiling hot which isn't nice. SCUFF have given me freedom and courage and I will forever be grateful. When I first looked at my tattoo I got quite emotional because it felt like all the years of hiding away and being ashamed of my scars had gone and I could try and put the past behind me, not to mention how beautiful the tattoo is - the tattooist is so talented! Thank you so much SCUFF for this funding, you really do make a change in people's lives."

If you are interested in learning more about the work we do at SCUFF, what we do to support mental health check, and funding for tattoo cover up’s visit our website scuff.org.uk

Or if you’d like to help change somebody else's life then you can donate to our current fundraiser www.justgiving.com/campaign/1097daysofscuff
