She was then accused of peeping under a bathroom stall. Her mother said it was probably because she “leans very far forward to use the bathroom.”Then the threats began on a private parents’ Facebook group for the school. The parents called Maddie “it” and “thing”, suggested that her genitalia be mutilated to make her female (“a good sharp knife will do the job real quick”).

Some context for those not familiar with Waffle House Culture:  Waffle House is one of the few chains in America that’s open 24/7/365, and where you can get both breakfast and lunch/dinner options at any time (I have had so many Breakfast Cheeseburgers at Waffle Houses). The food is really good, and people eat there at all times of the day or night, but it’s particularly popular as a late-night post-drinking spot because it’s all that’s open and it’s the kind of food that tastes especially good when you’re hammered. Part of Waffle House Protocol is that all the servers and cooks greet every single customer as they come through the door. It sounds lame, but I’ve never been to a Waffle House where that greeting didn’t feel completely heartfelt. My mom is a health nut who could barely find anything on the menu she was willing to eat and yet she describes the Christmas Day lunch we had there one year as one of the nicest meals she’s ever had because everyone was so warm and welcoming. That sense of camaraderie gets turned up to 11, of course, at 2 a.m. when everyone’s shitfaced. The jukeboxes have Waffle-House-themed songs on them (once you have heard “Raisins in my Toast” you will be earwormed forever) and there is an arcane system of hash brown ordering: scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, diced, peppered, and/or capped. The hot sauce bottles say “Casa de Waffle.”  Once, in Oxford (UK), my husband and I walked past a kebab van very late one night and he said “why do I smell Waffle House” The location of most Waffle Houses means there’s some… classism that tends to get tied up with Anti-Waffle House Discourse, which is probably lending itself, in part, to this being such a fraught topic. (I’m looking at a map and apparently I was born and raised right in the middle of the Peak Waffle House Density Zone) It is, in the words of chef Anthony Bourdain, “indeed marvelous— an irony-free zone where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts; where everybody regardless of race, creed, color or degree of inebriation is welcomed.” This was adorable lmao

 the news and media blackout isn't helping the

 has already fallen victim to, so l'm just gonna give
 you the breakdown asl know it:

 Protests started a week ago after 2 kids got run
 over and killed by a bus. Protests were peaceful
 with most kids (ages 10-18) taking over the jobs
 that cops are supposed to be doing instead of
 taking bribes and scratching their asses.
 05:47
 At first, they led to runaway traffic, but over 2-3
 days, they established a radical improvements in
 traffic control and safety, clearing up the roads
 that were previously horrendously chaotic. Not
 a single civilian had a complaint. No uproars,
 no violence, nothing. Probably the best civil
 movement in the history of this country... all by
 children
 05:48
 The blame for the prevailing lack of safety
 and order was rightfully placed on a senion
 government official - one of the most corrupt
 and evil of the bunch: the shipping minister. He
 fueled the civilian's outrage by citing accidents irn
 neighboring countries and sidestepped the issue
 quite shamelessly
 05:50
 Civilians called for his discharge, and students
 demanded traffic system reforms to ensure
 safety and alleviation of chaos
 05:51
 And that's when things started going South
