Your Blather Bingo Card

See the source image

Well, Marge, you asked for a Blather Bingo card, and I’ll try to provide one. It’d be nicer if I knew how to do this with computer graphics, but I don’t. So you’ll have to print out the blank card and then fill in the spaces with the words provided below.

Row 1: Racist, Cissexism, Affirming, Inclusive, Settled Science

Row 2: Heteronormative, Xenophobia, Patriarchy, Ablist, Women of Color

Row 3: Accepting, Income Inequality, (Free Spot), Gender, Sustainable

Row 4: Homophobia, Bigot, Welcoming, Microaggression, White Privilege

Row 5: Global, Social Justice, Minorities, Misogyny, Toxic Masculinity

There are, of course, other, equally chowder-headed, words and terms you can plug in. I just used the first 24 that sprang to mind. And you don’t have to install them in those particular rows–unless you want to play Self-Esteem Affirming Blather Bingo, in which everyone has exactly the same card and everyone wins.

And instead of X-ing out the words as they come up, you could cover them with little pieces of re-useable, sustainable Play-Doh…

Happy blathering, everybody!
