Get it together ladies!

You know if us white cis straight women could get over ourselves, we could probably actually run the world.

In one day, this is what I saw. The first being a bunch of middle aged white women, with “I stand with Ukraine” in the profile pictures, attacking a 17 year old girl. For what? Speaking about her admiration of Nicola Sturgeon, you know the Scottish Female Prime Minister.

Then another bunch of white woman, going on about how Amber Heard’s editorial piece, was her not moving on. You know where she didn’t even talk about Depp? Just talked about her experience in society, and how she was treated in the aftermath. They just skipped over the whole you know, Depp suing people left right and centre for calling him a wife beater, and losing.

So as I pointed out too them. “So, a 60 year old man, decided to “move on”, by LITERALLY years later, suing Heard, when she didn’t say his name. Instead of letting Heard say her piece and “letting go” Decided instead, in a public court case, humiliating himself, his children and his other ex-wife Vanessa Paradis. That’s how you ‘move on’, is it? Public humiliation of your family”.

I will be talking about TERFs a little bit later. They have been particular horrible during Pride this month, they need a whole post for themselves.

Thursday Theories : Abuse ; The True Hollywood Story

Okay, I think I’ve had enough of trying to convince “grown ups” to stop endorsing abusers, lol. So this is going to be my last post about this for a while. I’m over it, I am sure you are all over it too.

I have seriously gone off of “Hollywood” lately, there are few that I have respect for anymore. The ones that I do talk about what they KNOW. I think that’s a HUGE note to take.

Right, so the reason for this post today. Is that Deppford Wives are under the impression that because Depp “got off”, in America, at least, with what happened with too Heard, that means 1) He’s not abusive and 2) he has never has been. Now when you read my post about Hindsight earlier this week. I point out the flaws, not specifically that individual moment, but generally.

When you actually look back at what Depp has gotten off with. Yeah, he’s an A-Star wanker. But Depp is not alone.

Now I know some things we can only say that they allegedly took place. Like Brad Pitt hitting his child, allegedly happened. I am pretty sure that it did happen, but I don’t think he’s a rotten person because of it. That case is coming up too, and I’ve already seen the media trying portray Brad as the only wounded party.

Remember how they ALL blamed Jolie for what happened between Pitt and Aniston? Instead of Pitt.

Not Cool.

Which brings me to the case of Chris Brown, one of the things that made me lose my mind during the whole Heard v Depp thing, was this. I legitimately saw grown women say “I don’t follow Depp blindly, it’s just that Heard didn’t look as beaten up as Rihanna did, so I don’t believe she got hit”. Which is obviously gross for a lot of different reasons. But what happened to Chris Brown again? Oh, that’s right nothing. When Rihanna forgave CB, everyone was like “we should too”. Here’s the thing, Chris Brown, didn’t stop at Rihanna. He kept harassing and being violent, he’s had at least AVO’s against him SINCE Rihanna. All the while, even before Rihanna forgave him, STILL winning music awards.

Which then leads me to CK Louis who admitted that he had sexually colleagues, what happened too him? He won a Grammy. Top female comedians came out as saying “Yeah, that one hurt”.

Which takes me back to Depp. This week, video came out of his defending Roman Polanski. Roman Polanski couldn’t collect his award that he won after he fled America. Because he is running from the Law, what did he do? He raped a minor.

The only person who has taken any responsibility for his actions, even yes, before he was ultimately punished, has been Will Smith. Throughout Hollywood’s history. Oh, and Harvey Weinstein? He’s kept all his awards.

Kevin Spacey still making films.

Thursday Theories – Reality IS important

I just want to start this post off by saying, that I am so glad that some people “expose” themselves. And I unfollowed them.

I also want to ask, if it’s completely sad that I am sad about Internet Explorer?

What this post is more importantly about, is how important it is too talk about some of the realities in this world.

January 6th.

I’ve seen some people say that what’s the point of these current hearings. He was acquitted, why bother? Are they actually kidding?

This hearing is exposing the people who acquitted Trump, in the first place. Too sit there and actually say that these hearings have no purpose now, is ridiculous. We are talking/writing about the biggest corruption within the Republican Party, the Party who nearly brought America to it’s knees, since Nixon. Of course it’s important, how could it not be? You would have to either be complicit, have no understanding what Jan 6th did to America, or a complete idiot, to think these current hearings have no benefits.

I’m not even sorry for saying this. Trump is now throwing his own daughter under the bus.

It is really refreshing to see Republican’s and Trump Supporters being called out for WHAT they are. I don’t know about you all, but I am finding such clarity in the hearings.

Refresh

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you probably would have seen my post about how I gave myself a “day off” over the weekend. Like I pretty much did whatever I wanted. Which include not coming on here, and I wrote about the guilt of it all.

But it was what I needed, even with the guilt, even with the feeling of obligation that I felt to let people know.

So, apart from the guilt, it was good.

See, the weekend before, I had a cold. I also was supposed to see my Gran on the Saturday, and my partners Nan on the Sunday. You all know what its like when you’re sick, it’s not a “break” when you’re sick. Being sick is not a holiday.

I read so much, I played my computer games, I even got to do some journal writing. I didn’t have a bath, but lovely showers and I even took care of my feet, lol. I put on some incense. I did not over eat, but I enjoyed my food! ❤ What do you do to refresh and recharge?

Thursday Theories – Multi tasking

Which do you think is better for you brain? Too multi-task or not too multi task.

I’m not going to answer outright, I’m going to write this out. Please while you read this, stay in the moment and read this post. Do not do anything else, just read.

I was watching television program on the ABC the other day called “Our Brain”. It was absolutely fascinating.

I wanted to write about one specific thing that I found really interesting from the documentary. Multi tasking.

When I listened to it, it made a lot of sense.

The term multi tasking was from computers. Now clearly, our brains are not computers. As humans, therefore we are not actually multi tasking. What we are actually doing is called swish tasking. We’re not focusing on one task, we’re going back and forth between tasks. Which ultimately, stresses our brain out.

There is a huge difference between focusing and swishing around.

Like it says in the documentary “Multi tasking doesn’t exist”.

Thursday Theories – What’s in a name

Well, according to some TERFs, that if you change your name, that means you’ve “cut off” the parental link…I am not even kidding..,

If you actually believe this, you need help.

It starts off with “A name is given with love”.

Which might, in some cases, be true. Although reading through some of the comments, it seems that some parents gave their kids their names…cause…

Myself, as an example, I am named after Lauren Bacall. Which is pretty cool. I do feel like Lauren, but if I didn’t, that has nothing to do with my parents.

*You know* after the last couple of days this seems so not important, however, I will continue.

I could call myself…

It has nothing to do with my parents, and my “connection” to them.

How about yourselves? Do you think changing your name cuts off the connection to your parents? Is there a cool story behind your name?

Thursday Theories – Nice

So this isn’t really a “fact” thing type blog, it’s more a curiosity thing. So “bear with”.

I was just thinking today at work. What “made” me become nice? Was it innate, did I learn it, was it force onto me, is it a gift?

Its just seems more and more like a rare trait these days. Like the other week my mum’s work colleague, her mum had just escaped from the Ukraine, and on top of all of that they LOST HER LUGGAGE! So that night we all whipped different clothing. When we tell people that story, most of us say to us a lot of other people wouldn’t. I was like, really?

Then with my streaming and social media’s, people keeping telling I am so nice and you don’t see that a lot, really?

I think it’s a normal thing to get together clothes and things you can spare, last minute to someone. If I’m having a bad day, I don’t take it out on others. Is that really not that normal?

That’s why I started to think about it. I reblocked my Dad today as well, after unblocking him, to thank him for my present he gave me for my birthday. Only to not hear anything, until yesterday, where all he wanted was my brother’s address. So I gave it too him and then he said the oddest thing “Block Time…Bye” That man child, had been blocking me this WHOLE time! He STILL thinks HE’S the victim…WTF is wrong with him?!!!!

So definitely didn’t learn my kindness from him, lol

My mum, a little bit, I guess? She treats me with little respect, like that family that have controlled my life since I was 12, and am now 38. They ruined my birthday last year, she mocked this year for being grumpy around my birthday. They disrespect my partner and I, and she says nothing. So maybe not her either.

SO WHOOOOOO! As much as I can still relate to my great grandfather, he died when I was two, lol

You know, maybe it’s the pets?! That unconditional love has got to rub off, but I see a lot of bigots with pets of some sort. Do you know that amount of times I have said “SAVE THE DOGGO!KITTY!HORSES…various other animals” lol…

SO WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES US NICE/KIND!

Thursday Theories – Understanding

This is the problem with society today. It USED to be common that if you don’t understand something, you shut up and learn. It’s called having good listening skills. These days people will admit they don’t understand something, but it’s everybody else whose the idiot for you not understanding.

A quick break down.

Birthing person, pregnant person – Is inclusive language. It pretty much includes people who are not women, but are pregnant, so trans men. Birthing person can also include women who are pregnant, but will not be keeping the child after (for what ever reasons).

Mother Goose Day

National Mother Goose Day on May 1st each year honors Mother Goose and the imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes we loved as children. 

But I also just wanted to post something to say thank you to you all!

I’m trying not to cry, but I can’t help it. I’m not even drunk!

I like to feel like I’m a Mother Goose type person/character. Yes, some days are hard than others, but being here makes it all so much easier. I like to stories, fables and myths. As well as a few life lessons.

The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of French fairy tales and later of English nursery rhyme. As a character, she appeared in a song, the first stanza of which often functions now as a nursery rhyme. This, however, was dependent on a Christmas pantomime, a successor to which is still performed in the United Kingdom.

Do you have a favourite mother goose tale?
