Thursday Theories – Changing my Religion

I was inspired to write about this after watching a documentary about Nefertiti. I know a bit about Ancient Egyptian Rulers, however, how there Religion worked, I’m not “hot” on.

I was mainly watching it to see if they found Nefertiti, which before I got tot the end of it, I thought to myself “Well that’d be all over the news”. So ultimately they did not find her…Yet.

What fascinated myself though, was under her and her husbands (Akhenaten) rule, they changed the whole Egyptian religion. From worshipping a number of Gods, like the Ancient Greeks and Rome, to worshipping, just one God, just like Christianity. After he died though, they got “rid” of his Religion and went back to the old one, where they worshipped several.

Although Nefertiti and Akhenaten governed over Ancient Egypt at a time of unprecedented wealth, their new religion unsettled the empire. … However, she was also largely hated because of her active leadership in Akhenaten’s sun-oriented religion

It’s just interesting to me within one Religion how many times they all change.

Is the UK okay?

Soooooo…I have quiet a few family and friends over the in the UK. Apart from it being TERF Island. It’s … just … well, see for yourselves…

They know it’s not the ACTUAL Winston Churchill right? This is some dumb shit. They can’t possibly be real police?. Why waste tax payers money? What is happening over there?

It’s like politicians and journalists saw Trump, Fox News and the UK Government and the BBC went. “Is that challenge to be worse. After all it worked out REALLY well for Trump”

Narrator: It didn’t, and it hasn’t.

Also though, now the UK is actually on the list as a dangerous place for trans people to live, which isn’t shocking too me. What is shocking to me, even after all this time. Are the amount of “Women Rights” groups within the UK, who haven’t actually done anything for Women, but continue to say “Women’s Rights” while being anti-trans.

I’m gonna do it!

After my post “Mental Health Check List” I’m going too take your suggestions on board and do them! I didn’t honestly think to myself what I’d do if anyone made any good suggestions, but you all did! Haha

Tomorrow/When I get up I’m getting up and then I am going to write that to do list, and include a Spiritual Checklist as well! I think that sounds like a fantastic idea. Thank you very much for sharing and giving me ideas. My idea is to do a to do list, then after I’ve done it. Too expand it to then include times and dates. Basically which tasks need to go in order of importance.

Excuses, excuses, excuse

I’m just wondering what is the weirdest excuse you’ve ever heard? I was just thinking about it after I heard a odd one. So doing my usual trying to “debate” with gender critical men and trying to explain to them why youths have medical protections. Meaning they don’t HAVE to get their parents permission.

One of their rebuttals was that kids have to a parents permission to drive a car, tattoos and advil.

At first I found the car one odd. Because, well cars a big dangerous machines, who absolutely no one is perfect taking out the first time out. Also, human beings are not cars, and people know their own bodies. Tattoos you do, but that’s because it’s an outside decoration you have to live with the rest of your life. Advil, I’m sure that youths can get it as long as they have prescription. I’m not 100% how advil, general pain medication works. If a girl though get’s heavy periods, I’m sure she can go to her doctor and get a prescription.

Also the whole car. I don’t know where you all live. Again, kids don’t need a PARENT’s permission, they just here need a fully licensed driver. Otherwise there would be no driving schools or teachers. You probably need permission for their car, but you don’t need their permission to drive if you have another driver.

So again, not really good enough excuses to stop youths for starting to transition.

Mental Health Check List

Do any of you have a mental health checklist? I mean when you’re both in the middle of a mental health crisis, and then afterwards? Maybe you found something different to help this time?

When I’m in the middle of a attack. There are couple of things I do.

In the middle of a attack

  • Sing a song in my head. I usually end up singing one sentence from a song.
  • I feel for any of my plushies. Usually they’re just on the floor within reach.
  • I might look for my bag, in the dark. Just to know it’s there.
  • I usually sit up and try to remember to breath.
  • If that all fails, I get my phone and I use my breathing app and I just stare at that app, haha

Learned behaviours to stay in control

  • I’ve been getting better with this, but I always go to the toilet before I leave anywhere. This has been getting better though, which is a relief.
  • Make sure things like my phone and ipod are charged.
  • I have all sorts of natural drugs in my bag, that help relax. I haven’t had used any in ages! Which is also a good thing, but is it because I know they’re there?
  • I actually do think about how I’m feeling before I go onto Twitter, FB, Insta.

Young Divas

It’s my own fault really.

So, before the Easter long weekend my mum and I were talking about our favourite chocolates that we expected to get over the weekend. We have a local national chocolate company, that my mum and myself buy each other for Easter. Making sure we both get at least eggs we both like. Well, my mum got me pjs, that are cute, but not Haighs eggs, lol. I told her my least favourite chocolates are Lindt…Guess what I got all weekend, lol.

Luckily, my partner got me Subway cookies, I got him a doughnut and bought myself Haighs eggs, haha.

Even though it’s already out there, I am going to say next Easter. I really hate Haigh’s chocolate. Knowing full well, whatever is out there, already knows the truth, haha.

After all the real meaning of Easter is family, rebirth, death, chocolate, bunnies, food (haha).

Screw people

Over people!

I expect stupidity from TERFs and bigots, but how fed up do you get when it’s people who you are supposedly close to you?

That’s where I am right now. I only truly feel like me, that people listen to me, are you. While that makes me sad, at least I KNOW people who do listen too me. Who actually THINK about me and how they treat me. I am so fed up with everyone right now. I have been fighting for trans people for literal MONTHS now. Everyone single person ignored my trans visibility post. While my brother, everyone LOVED his comment. Even though, he’s pretty much only talked about himself.

At the beginning if the year, the family that’s been hassling me. Managed to get a invitation to a party, that they never should have been invited too…Their excuse? “Oh Lauren, I’m so sorry I had a brain fade”. I never responded to that text. I just sat there and seethed. I would have rather NO text.

I don’t feel like I even have a safe space anymore. This blog is about it. Pippy was my safe space, and that makes me feel so depressed, I have to go cry. I will keep my Facebook and my “family” Instagram space, but I refuse to go on them anymore.

Thursday Theories – TERFs and their VERY low standards

*VERY long post incoming*

So I am sure by now you have heard of the Women’s March and the vigil’s for Sarah Everard.

WELL…Again TERFs and Gender Criticals are making it all about them…AGAIN. I actually couldn’t believe that I had to argue with a group of grown ups. Who complained that because of a sign saying that TERFS were not welcomed, they left! They were scared off by ONE sign. They couldn’t put the prejudices aside for the violent way a young woman died, at the hands of the police, because of a sign. Not only did they leave because of the sign, but the way they BRAGGED about it too! Like, they were proud that they were scared of by ONE sign.

Then “Reclaim the Streets” was “rude” to a TERF, as they were demanding to know that RTS weren’t giving their money to men ie transwomen, and two weeks later they’re STILL going on about how “rude” they are. Not one person complaining has Sarah Everard mentioned anywhere on their profile.

Watching two women being called “brave” because they’re talking together on Spotify, about how much they hate trans people and they’re just protecting the “rights” of children, by not speaking to a single person who is trans, or even a actual health professional. Is a REALLY low standard to have when it comes to “bravery”. I wonder if they would call two men talking about women to “protect their rights” with no women or a single health professional for women there “brave”. Nope. So what’s the difference? Where, in their world is talking about people who are not even there “brave” in their world? I reported that podcast. Whether or not anything will happen, I don’t know.

Imagine having a go at a small company, because they post a picture of a diary with drawn bums and different underwear on those bums. Calling it not feminist, when it actually subtly is. Then calling me pathetic, when I make a joke about how they’re just jelly they’re bum doesn’t look as good, lol. Then of course they started with the whole misogyny thing, when I pointed out they’re getting upset over a pencil drawing of bums with underwear, and calling me pathetic for a joke. They seem upset. Then they said I was going on about it, as I had to point out. They were the ones who chose to bring it to everyone’s attention. You’re calling a joke pathetic. And when I say to actually LOOK at the drawing, instead of reacting, LOOK AT IT. I’m a misogynists’ -.- They blocked me, lol.

You know it’s just a funny thing to me, that these “women” compare themselves to the same struggles that suffragettes and “witches” faced. So much not are TERFs nearly ANYWHERE near that level that “witches” and suffragettes faced. Even the racists suffragettes.

Now, I come to the Queen of the TERFs. I don’t know how much of you have seen her tweets. That are completely transphobic, but I’ve only just begun to realise how they show how little of a self esteem Rowling has to has. Not only are her tweets and “report” transphobic. There’s one sentence in one tweet, that should be a clue to everyone how she actually views women and herself.

“Dress how you want….Have sex with whoever will have you”

Do NOT HAVE SEX WITH WHO’LL EVER HAVE YOU. How much more lower standards can you get than that? I can’t begin to tell you, how much not to do this. The only person who wins out of that is person who you had sex with. YOU WILL HATE YOURSELF. Which might explain as well quiet a few things about Rowling herself.

HAVE SOME STANDARDS WOMAN! For women and men EVERYWHERE…Have some set standards for yourself and stick to it. Also though having standards for yourself, will also help to stop yourself … I don’t know … If you want to fight for women and girls, if you want to really help us. You wont be scared off by a sign. You wouldn’t tell women to sleep with whoever. You wouldn’t block women asking how the money you’re grabbing from women during a global pandemic is for “sex based rights” when you’re court case is because someone said something “mean” about you.

Okay, I guess this isn’t really a “theory” so much as a fact. I’m “starting” to suspect that these women don’t actually care about women, and just want to hate trans women more.

Why I hate TERFs & GCs. I’m a cis white straight woman. Comes with a LOT of privilege even though I’ve been the victim of violence. TERFs are so engrossed in their HATRED of trans people, who’ve never harmed them. They IGNORE the voices of Brittany Higgins, Patsy Stevenson, Who ARE out there, right now. Trying to stop violence against women, and not on Twitter complaining how “gross” the trans community is. They disrespect the deaths of #DanaMartin #NaomiHersi #MheldoyBruno #stopviolenceagainstwomen

Interesting little tidbit. Since I’ve been a trans ally on Twitter, I have been more abused by women and men, more than I have in the entirety of my life.

Ah Uh!

*I have to apologise. I forgot to change this post a few days ago, to later. So some people have already liked it, and I’ve added a couple of things to the list*

You don’t have to feel like you need to share your moments here with us. I would though, just like to write about some big “AH UH!” moments I’ve had in my life. Not necessarily romantic, and not trying to “out” people. Just explaining in my life where I’ve gone to myself “That’s why that happened!” And then just being full and whole after that realisation. If you’d like to share though, please do!

This is a good thing. I feel like I trust you all enough to share this with you.

In no particular order:

  • Reading the person’s status about myself “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”. This Witch is still very much alive, bitch! lol
  • Silence after I told someone how much they hurt me.
  • Watching someone be told they’re nothing but a “drama passive aggressive queen”, by someone they are completely in love with, and it wasn’t even sassy comment. AND THEY WENT AND LIKED THE COMMENT! Traumatic. Gee, if you can be that horrible to someone’s face, imagine what they were saying about you behind your back!
  • Watching a lot of one-on-one conservations, think Oprah…well…mainly Oprah.
  • I can’t even invite my friends to my “birthday party”.
  • Thinking someone was annoyed/angry with me…trying to have a conversation with that someone, and they make it so awkward. They didn’t even tell me what’s wrong, but in that conversation I knew.
  • When someone finally calls you names, that you knew where just there, but they FINALLY say it.
  • This song…What I love about this song, is that it can apply to any kind of close relationship. Romantic, Friend, Family, etc.
