Thursday Theories – When JKRowling tweets, a little more of Harry Potter dies.

And, honestly, I don’t think she cares.

I swear, every time she tweets something, a little more the Harry Potter world dies.

This time she threatened to sue someone because they made fun of a direct quote that she said herself. The quote “I ignored porn directed at children”.

What #JKRowlingignores :

Child Porn…Hahaha

Her #FantasticsBeasts Director being charged with sexual assault.

Every single trans person’s and pro-trans voice.

#MoaningMyrtle just hanging out in the boys bathroom.

When the people she follows threatens women and the females in their families with rape, and threaten to beat up trans youth…Like me.

What #JKRowling doesn’t ignore:

Being directly quoted.

I’ve never been a huge Harry Potter fan, didn’t mind it, but this lady is a massive LotR fan. For years now though, people who like HP, readers I admire and respect. Have been talking about Rowling problematic issues, from who the Goblins in the bank are meant to be, to Cho Chang -.- , to did she steal HP from another story.


Years Before J.K. Rowling Controversy, Harry Potter’s Cho Chang Was Allegedly Asked To Deny Racist Backlash

Read the Worst Witch series and then Groosham Grange. A little funny story about this too. I was looking for the book it was copied from. A woman said “Well Rowling couldn’t have read it, because her child was in a stroller at the time she was writing HP, and so she wouldn’t have have read her a book that was for 8-10 years old. I happily pointed out her that “The Worst Witch” was first published out in 1975, Rowling was born in 1964. Rowling would have been 9 when this award winning book came out. Also, I am pretty sure that you don’t have to be a child to read a childs book.

There’s always a “coincidence” or a justification why.

Let alone, the amount of times she had back tracked and rewriting the Harry Potter to suit what’s popular at the time. Which, she can totally do that, that’s her right. But she does this thing a LOT. Like, the whole Dumbledore is gay thing. It’s not actually mentioned in any of the Harry Potter books.

We really need to start paying attention to these “coincidences” more, and I apoligise to the trans community for not really paying attention to them more.

Thursday Theories – Suffragettes

“Fighting” with TERFs who think they are the new Suffragettes, has actually proven quiet interesting. Mainly because I went to actually look up more about the suffaragettes and … gurrrrrrrrrrrrrrllllllllllllll …

They were crazy!

As an example, the more violent suffragettes were the inspiration for the IRA bombings.

Suffragette bombing and arson campaign

Reading through this link. It really depressed me. If this is the reason why women were given the vote, no wonder women are still not taken seriously by men in Politics. Instead of reason, and good debate, we got the “vote” through violence and harming completely innocent people.

The campaign has seen classification as a terrorist campaign, with both suffragettes themselves and the authorities referring to arson and bomb attacks as terrorism.

At the time, planting bombs was officially a hangable offence, and so suffragettes took special measures to avoid being caught by police when carrying out bombing attacks.

It says in the link, this is only now starting to come out. It was hidden and I can see why.

I have known about the racism part for a while now.

ACLU Blog – Celebrate Women’s Suffrage, but Don’t Whitewash the Movement’s Racism

When suffragists gathered in Seneca Falls, New York, in July 1848, they advocated for the right of white women to vote. The participants were middle and upper-class white women, a cadre of white men supporters and one African-American male — Frederick Douglass.  The esteemed abolitionist had forged a strong working relationship with fellow abolitionists and white women suffragists, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. No Black women attended the convention. None were invited.

Look into her eyes … WDYS #90

…What do you see?

I see a girl, lost.

She’s confused,

She has no idea what to do.

Everything she thought was going to happen, hasn’t.

But she knows the doors are not shut.

You can’t see, but this girl is brave.

She’s giving herself a moment to “get it together”.

Then she’s taking that step forward.

That mind is going at full speed.

Don’t let those fairy eyes fool you!

Looking out and forward.

What do you see # 90 – July 12, 2021

Thursday Theories – God: Pro-Choice or Pro-Life?

Nothing like a good controversial blog post on your Friday mornings, hehe

Funny thing is too me, it’s not really that controversial, as it’s not really that difficult to see where God stands on the matter. I can show you in just TWO bible quotations.

Hosea 13:16

ESV – 16 Samaria shall bear her guilt, because she has rebelled against her God; they shall fall by the sword; their little ones shall be dashed in pieces, and their pregnant women ripped open.

And the other is…

Psalm 127:3 

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.

I think it’s pretty obvious, don’t you?

For those who are not getting the obvious. God, is pro-choice. God himself choose who shall be rewarded with a child and who shall have fetuses ripped from their wombs. God “invented” not only abortions, but also pro-choice.

It just hit me the other day. I was dealing with a pro-life person and was using the usual quotes I use from the Bible. You can’t deny though, that he does give and take unborn lives. So, he makes a choice. Am I right, or am I right? lol

Last on the Card June 2021 Challenge

I thought I would join this challenge, this month. Mainly because, my last picture … I hope … brings you a little smile to your face.

Here is my entry for Brian at Bushboys World blog, Last photo on our Cards for June 2021.

Thursday Theories – My Anxiety

Now the purpose of this blog post. While I will talk about something that I think I’ve realised about my own anxiety. This post is, (I hope) a informed post about listening to your bodies. Which includes listening to your mind.

Our bodies are well equipped to let us know when something is “off”.

Over the last few months, I have experienced really odd flushes. I wouldn’t call them hot flushes, but they’re more like shaky flushes. Almost like when, I assume, your blood levels go low. However, when I’ve been tested, I haven’t got anything wrong. I decided to start taking note of when I get these shakes. I started to noticed that I get them when I’m getting really annoyed or fed up. It can even be something as simple as, I’m clearly not listening or am listening, but have to pay attention to something (haha), but the person whose talking to me, expects my full attention. It can be something literally that simple.

So I have started to think that it’s probably got more to do with my anxiety tablets, than anything else. As a kind of side effect, I guess you might call it.

I believe when my brain starts to get annoyed, it must be increasing something in my brain and the tablets are sending out weird signals. My brain on the anxiety tablet handles when I become annoyed, by making me feel like I’m going to faint.

I didn’t want to look it up on Google, as you all know what can happen then!

I could only really find though really, how anxiety can make you feel dizzy…which duh…There was a couple of things that did talk about it being a side affect.

The point of this?

When you have a illness, whether it be physically or mental. Yes, even spiritual.

We tend to listen to the Doctors, Nurses, family etc. And ignore what we think is going on. We just pass things off. Don’t do this. Listen to your body, your gut, your mind.

My “theory” is that our body are the best judges of what our body is going through. I know we tend to brush these things off, but do not. Take notes, if you must. Day, time and what you felt.

What I have to say about Laurel Hubbard

…It’s all positive by the way…

I say good for her! Laurel Hubbard is the first person to have qualified for the Olympics and is trans gender. Now, the International Olympics Committee, roughly a decade now, made it so that trans people can qualify and complete. Of course those trans people have to meet certain requirements. Laurel Hubbard, as an example, as met those requirements. It’s not like Laurel Hubbard went “Oh, I’m a trans woman now, let me into the Olympics” She had to meet certain requirements beforehand. She had to WORK at it, and meet the requirements, set by the IOC.

So I say good on her! I’m a few years younger than her and with a “bummy” leg”. If I could at this age, compete in the Olympics, I would, because why not. I am impressed, she is competing with people half her age. She’s not even the number one women in women’s weight lifting, Hubbard is ranked seventh in the IWF’s women’s +87kg division.

A special Thursday Theories

Although when usually post my Thursday Theories, it is Thursday for the majority of people who read my Blog. It actually comes out on early Friday morning for myself. So while this will be the majorities Wednesday, this actually be on my Thursday for once!

The reason for my “earlier” post today though, is because June the 24th is International Fairy Day.

Dog Halloween GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

day dedicated to the mythological sprites that fill our fairytales and imaginations! Fairies have existed in just about every culture around the world — though they differ from tale to tale.

While the term fairy goes back only to the Middle Ages in Europe. Analogues to these beings in varying forms appear in both written and oral literature, from the Sanskrit gandharva (semidivine celestial musicians) to the nymphs of Greek mythology  and Homer, the jinni of Arabic mythology, and similar folk characters of the Samoans, of the Arctic peoples, and of other indigenous Americans. 

There are so many variations of Fairies, good and evil ones. I could probably write a whole paper academic about it. I really want to do like a Fairytale Study Course, but I can’t justify it. I also know a couple of people with fairy gardens, but they live on huge properties and so have the resources and space to make a whole little village. It’s incredibly sweet.

Anyway, there is so much more to Fairies than what I could write in my little blog post, while drinking (haha).

Tomorrow though, embrace your inner Fairy…Whether that’s good or evil, or cheeky ~.^
