National Sorry Day

What’s the purpose of National Sorry Day?

In addition to acknowledging the trauma and loss that continues to affect Indigenous communities, families and individuals, National Sorry Day also provides a chance to focus on healing and pursue reconciliation in Australian society.

Reconciliation Australia

Because of what’s happened in Texas and this day always brings out the racist “I didn’t do anything to hurt them” Which honestly, most of the time, they have been completely racist to Indigenous Australians. They may have never “harmed” Indigenous people, but they haven’t been kind either.

A little vindication

One of the reasons that I am so annoyed by the Depp vs Heard case, is because I see my Dad so much in Depp. The eternal victim, he has a pure heart, he as never done anything wrong in his entire life. It’s everybody else with the problem, not him. You don’t have to be educated to see what Depp is doing, IF, you’re paying attention.

Anyways, one of the big reasons, I dislike what Depp is doing is because I see SO much of my father in him. Anyways,

After finding out something that happened over night and in the last couple of days. You have people working on the POTC films saying that Heard’s editorial had no impact on Depp’s career. In fact what happened was Heard’s career was affected, more than Depp’s. Depp’s career has been his own undoing. Like even Heard’s supporters are saying “she’s not innocent in this” HOWEVER it’s Depp supporters who are saying that Depp did nothing wrong,

As I have said before, numerous times. Heard admitting to her part, does not mean Depp didn’t do anything.

Noooo…It’s happening

Today is Election Day in Australia. When you see this post, I will be still tucked in bed. I just wanted to let you all know that I wont be on here for the next couple of days. No matter the results, I just think it’s not going to be nice. I already have felt ill the last couple of days.

Last time we were here, none of us thought Morrison was going to win, and it was DEVASTATING when he did. I still think, even know, that he doesn’t want to be PM. But like Trump, he’ll stay, to show face.

Self-Esteem

A lot of bigot people just do not have it.

Which is why they fall very easily for propaganda.

And it never stops amazing me how many people, being rich = a good person. When most of the time, it is very much the opposite of that. How jealous we are because they’re so good looking and rich, and have successful…

Well you may be rich, good looking (well a little bit) and have a great career.

But you’re still a terrible person, haha.

Being rich, good looking and a great career, doesn’t mean for a second that you’re a good person.

I could be the poorest of the poor, no career and be “ugly”, and I would still be a better person than you.

Because that’s how self-esteem works.

The anti-trans people may have the Republicans, the Tories, the Religious Right Christians and a lot of the right mainstream media’s ear. But I have the majority of people who stand with me when I say “trans rights are human rights”. That makes me the richest, the best looking and the best life ever!

So when you say to someone like me, after your “tweet” got 3000 “likes” of people who think cis is offensive (that’s pathetic by the way). You laugh and say to me “How does it feel to be part of a minority” I can reply “I’m not”, because one, I don’t NEED Twitter likes to determine who or who not is correct. Two, I’m not part of a minority and I can show all the facts and figure. You’ve got anon twitter accounts. Thirdly, I’m a straight white cis woman, I have a LOT of privileges and that shows a distinct lack of morality to call me a “minority”, because you got a lot of Twitter likes. That’s not what a minority is.

Also there are 330million twitter users.

Seriously, cis transphobes, get yourself self esteem

So I got “dog-piled” by TERFs the other day, what was my offense?

I explained that cis isn’t offensive, and how it’s just descriptive. I ended up having to mute the conversation because I seriously worried about these people’s mental health.

And as for the “well I find cis offensive”

Being cis, is a subset for men and women. It’s not a sex specific thing. It’s a simple description, that you acknowledge that that is the body you were born in. Being trans, simply means you don’t. So again, cis isn’t “oppressed” related, it’s just simply, I acknowledge this body I was born into too.

Make Sense?

I literally do not know how to make it more simple, lol

Dr Strange and Scarlett Witch

A little review

Oh, I highly encourage everyone too see this movie. I think it’s going to do really well. Most of the cinema’s were all booked out. Which was fantastic too see, I think it may be the best movie this year!

I loved seeing the mysticism and the witchery from Scarlett Witch. I honestly feel like it was a great combination together, the good and bad, the light and dark, coming together. I have to confess to you all, I think Dr Strange may be my favourite superhero of all =D I also have loved Scarlett Witch, before these movies came out.

It may not seem like a typical Iron Man, or Captain America type movie. But if you love old cultures, if you love the Spirits, love witch craft, love everything “new age” (despite it being around for centuries) I highly recommend it. I wont say too much at the moment, because it is pretty new. But it is a brilliant movie.

Oh my goodness, Emily Olsen in this movie is absolutely gorgeous! Like I said I don’t want too give too much away, but she is absolutely amazing as Wanda. I can honestly say that this has my favourite interpretation of her as “Wanda” so far. You also get to see her full powers. Of course I have adored Benedict Cumberbatch since forever. I can’t even remember where I first saw him, but he is a fantastic Dr Strange. I know that a lot of people tired of seeing him in everything, but not me.

Also if you don’t want spoilers, do not look past this GIF. I posted a gif of the favourite part of the movie, and can I say why I adore Cumberbatch.

By the way this has nothing to do with my previous post of feminism vs patriarchy, lol. You know what? I think this is more about a kind of spirit vs another kind of spirit. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed it so much? How often do we fight within our own spirits. It’s not really good vs evil, although there are elements of that. It’s more about fighting with the good and bad within ourselves.

What makes you happy? Like even my favourite part of this movie, you could definitely take it as “The Hangman” or the “Death” card. What do I mean by that? A lot of people see the Death card in particularly as a horrible card, but it doesn’t mean you’re doing to die. It literally means about the death of something within you. Maybe a new career? Did you realise something about yourself, that changes you forever. Death doesn’t always mean “The End”.

If you don’t want to know about one of my favourite parts of the movie, don’t look down, lol.

They vant to suck my blood

So I can literally go from the front door to the car and get bitten, at least 5 times.

How do mosquitoes sniff out humans to bite?

This is a completely fascinating article, if your all Science and Biology, this will intrigue!

The article takes a look at possible reasons why Mosquitoes choose their victims, and one interesting observations was that that they do seem more attracted to humans than other animals…Of course, lol
