One Name…

There’s a really good reason why I don’t listen to anything Trump says anymore, it’s either all:

  • Stupid
  • Dumb
  • Misinformed
  • Inflammatory

My partner though, for some reason, even though he doesn’t like Trump either. Will listen to news reports with Trump speaking. It drives me nuts! Mainly because he’ll say something really that makes me VERY annoyed.

My partner recently played a news report where Trump was talking about Covid19, I swear, he said “It has many names…The Virus, the Chinese Virus, Wuhan Virus”…No, it doesn’t have MANY names…It has ONE name…Covid19. It is definitely NOT “The Chinese Virus”. No leader, should be calling Covid19, anything else BUT Covid19 either.

Just like you and I, even Donald Trump, we all have ONE name. We may have nicknames, but we all have one name.

Maybe, he doesn’t know how to pronounce COVID19?

There’s a lot of people out there, who think they’re God

One of the more interesting things I have seen with people who fear (cause they do) transpeople. They talk a lot like they know what other people are thinking, or what spirits do.

I was talking to a person who claimed they had never gotten an answer for their question (which I found out later, they do…all the time. They just like to prove people “wrong”).

I was using this article, that’s really a layman’s explanation for transgender, and gay people. I don’t want to give them complicated stuff, because they wont read it. What stumped me with this person though was when they said “Just because you keep stating something, doesn’t make it so. Spirits don’t go into the wrong body”.

I didn’t realise this person was religious.

My counter argument, was that one, just because they kept stating what I was saying was wrong, doesn’t make it so either,lol. I actually had science on my side. What I said to him about the spirit was though “You realise you’re not God, right? You don’t know anything about other human beings spirits. Where did I say it was wrong? Ever think that maybe God sends transpeople to teach the lgb and cis people, a very good lesson in accepting those they fear the most”?

I’ve got arguments for it all baby,lol.

It’s a pretty good lesson, I think to accept and go out and understand something or someone you fear.

 

Are you an empath?

*If you follow me on Instagram. You probably saw my post about this topic. As I wrote on the post, I wanted to write about this topic, with a little more oompfh.*

Too begin with, there are two type of empaths. There are the type that feel for others, so you see a situation and while you might not understand what they’re dealing with. You feel for them. You can feel the pain that they are feeling. You get why they’re fighting for what they’re fighting for.

The other are people who can almost actually read your mind. They are what is called an empath psychic. A lot of these types can see certain things, like, you might of heard of people who can see colours around people or auras’. We all have one certain colour that surrounds us, but empath psychic can see our colours change when we feel pain, happiness, sadness etc.

Also, for each empath, clearly there are empath’s who feel different areas more strongly than other areas. So there are people like medical empath’s, as an example.

Basically Empath’s are people who literally feel for others.

Now, the issue I really have with people who say “I am totally an empath, because I have strong feelings so I am expert on others’ feelings”. Having strong feelings doesn’t automatically make you an empath. Narcissists, as an example, think they have strong feelings. I would never call a Narcissist an empath,lol. But I’ve known a lot of Narcissists in my life, who do call themselves empaths, because they have strong feelings.

Now, I don’t mind if you have strong feelings, we all do, we’re human after all. My issue is when you going around using a platform to use your “strong feelings” and then talk and spread your misinformation.

If your an empath and you’re using your platform to say “Don’t make me feeling guilty if I need a break from BLM, because I need a mental break” and then continue to complain, about how people are making you feel guilty. Now Empath’s, like myself, do feel guilty if we need to take a mental health day, because we KNOW that we haven’t had to deal with the racism for hundreds if not thousands of years. If you’re only getting involved with BLM NOW, you’ve literally been dealing with it for about a month,lol. Not hundreds of years, so yeah, to complain that people make you feel guilty for needing a day off, is kind of ridiculous and not empathetic.

An empath, by the way, has been feeling BLM, before BLM, became a “thing.”

Empath’s, At the same time, are aware that we can still do something even when we need a “day off”. You can do things that don’t require you to go on social media, that don’t require you to go out and protest. Buy or go to your local library and grab that POC author book, you may have not read before. Get old clothes together, to give to charity. Old toys to give to vulnerable children. Make some home cooking for your elderly neighbour. Write a well written letter to your Representative, that peaceful protesters are being arrested for BLM marches, ignoring their 1A RIGHTS to peacefully protest. While white people with guns, hang effigies of their local representative…were not. See, you don’t NEED to go onto social media, at all.

An empath, already knew this. So chances are, you’re not an empath.

It’s perfectly fine to not be an empath, it’s not like it makes you insensitive to people, it doesn’t. You still have feelings, just empaths tend to have stronger feelings for OTHERS, not just strong feelings in general. But please, do not go saying you are one, spreading misinformation so you can be part of a “fad”. That’s what you’d be doing.

Tired…

I am tired of “people” like Liseth…My response below…

Liseth, don’t you have a happy life or something? I’m genuinely sad for you. Transpeople, are so few, that there is no way they could EVER infringe on cis people…EVER. Men or Women…So why so much hate towards strangers, that you wont let them live? Who truly hurt you.

I am SO over and so tired, of having to fight people. Because they so unhappy with their own lives, you racists, bigots…GET YOUR OWN LIFE AND LIVE IT! I am SO tired of it, there is no NEED to be this hateful towards others.

white person

I am not ashamed to admit, I am embarrassed to be white and a cis person, right now. It is embarrassing.

Trumpter #36….Is it too late to apologise?

I don’t know how many of you saw the tweet from Trump to Bubba Wallace. The NASCAR driver whose team found a noose looking noose in their garage. Which was found out later to be a garage pulley. Still, that was the most noose looking garage pulley, I’ve ever seen. I don’t blame them though for thinking it was a noose.

My point is, why is it every time the Trump family demand an apology from other people? Not only have they done something worse, but they refuse to apologise for it? Who do these people think they are?

What an fantasy world these “people” live in!

 

Do some people think anymore?

So, I went on Twitter.

JKRowling has signed a letter, basically to say that the “cancel culture” is ridiculous. I mean, she just wants to cancel transpeople altogether, and uses her massive platform to do so. But yeah, people who are calling her out for her bigotry are the ones with problem? Her whole tweet was about how their should be freedom of thought and speech.

There is, you dumb ass…You can say whatever you want.

It does not mean, you get a free pass. It does not mean that no one can say anything to you. It does mean that calling you out on your bigotry, people are debating you. In fact, the point of opposition and debate, is for people to talk who don’t agree. Debate is not talking with people who agree with you.

The interesting thing I saw in the comments though, was the amount of Brexiteers and Trump Supporters. Now, too me, that would make me go “Oh, I’ve gone and stuffed up” I doubt that Rowling thinks that.

That’s what frustrates me though, people just don’t THINK anymore. They say something without thinking about it. There were so many Trump Supporters who were saying they apologise for the extreme left. We don’t need the far-right deplorable’s to apologise for us, being able to accept people. If by being “extreme” means you can accept people, then call me…

Do these “people” like JKRowling ever just THINK, maybe if she wasn’t being so horrible, then she wouldn’t be “cancelled?”. I didn’t want to see Magic Beasts with Depp, I certainly wont be seeing, if they do bring out another.

Do they even see the irony of yelling “Freedom”? While literally trying to cancel and get rid of a whole group of people, because they don’t like them. One person who said that transpeople should not allowed to be, a comment supporting them said and I quote “She’s not saying they can’t be who they want to be”. Which is LITERALLY what she was saying, it is literally what she is trying to stop them for being. How is that not saying that people can’t be who they want too be?

 

M is for Moolah aka Money

I have been very interested to watch two of the biggest “documentaries” of the year. One is actually a mini series, the other is a documentary.

The documentary is called “McMillion$” which is about the McDonald’s game in the US. Where they found that people who were saying that they were winning the millions of dollars, but weren’t really winning the millions of dollars. The other is a mini series about the UK scandal that was “Who wants to be millionaire” *cough cough*.

Isn’t it interesting, what motivates people sometimes?

Both men in the situation, were both people who were involved in protecting other people. So what made them turn to defraud people? One was a former police officer until he developed a MS health like condition. The other was in the Army, and rose to the rank of Major, which is pretty darn impressive.

Is that just the way I think? Isn’t it weird? I couldn’t even begin to explain why, and only they will ever truly knew.

Angry Karen’s at the Mall.

I am sure that by now, we have all seen at least one video of the angry white “Karens” at the supermarkets and in the malls. Throwing a fit, and causing damage to properties and products.

Do you think, a single one of these women, have watched themselves later and gone “Maybe, my priorities are wrong?”. I doubt it…But I live in hope. How are these grown ass “woman” NOT embarrassed by their actions? If you want to see what privilege is, watch one of these “meltdowns”. It is EMBARRASSING.

Soldiers, Police, Front line workers put their lives on the line every day. Possibly never coming home…And these “woman” are having a tantrum, fit for a child, because they don’t want to wear a mask.

Good god, I hope they DON’T have children!

Sure, they have a right to protest about not wearing a mask. But is it REALLY want you want to be known for? That you don’t want to do literally the very least you can do to help your fellow Americans? I would be willing to put a bet on it, that these “women” are also the FIRST to say that America is a Christian nation.

You too?

Anyone else feeling like these days that they are having more and more days that they just want to punch people in the face? Or is it just me?

Between Trumps demands for an apology for an hoax, that never was. The racist bigots, people saying that they agree with some of what Kanye West says, but never actually saying what they agree with. The transphobic lists of things that are neither real or ever going to happen. The Karen’s throwing child tantrums in stores. Or the white people saying “White people don’t get antsy around the police, so why do black people”. (I posted the picture of George Floyd being kneed in the neck, and ultimately killed and said “cause”.).

It’s like … OH MY GOD…

Mrs Sherlock Holmes…Police Reform

I decided to write about a book I have recently finished and I want all the book lovers to go out and read it. I think that I loved it so much, because it is so relevant to everything that we are going through right now.

20200701_143413

Mrs Sherlock Holmes by Brad Ricca 

I HIGHLY recommend this one! Especially at the moment. When I first started this one, I thought it was just going to be about the Ruth Cruger case. It was so much more than that!

It’s all about police corruption, the “buddy buddy” culture within the police. It writes about her rise and ultimately how the Patriarchy tried to bring her down. Where it touches on a little about the suffragette movement. When people ask me now which three people, living or dead, would I ask around to dinner. One will be Mary Grace Quackenbos. I don’t want to write anymore about it. Just read it, and read it NOW.

For those who don’t know this book is based on a real person and a real famous case. Mary Grace Quackenbos, was a real person, a real lawyer and a real “detective”. Ruth Cruger was a real missing girl. Apart from the missing girl case, Quackenbos was really known for helping people get out, who were laboured with peonage or the person slave trade. Although peonage was officially outlawed in the states in 1867, it still went on. The reason why MGQ was called in, was because when Ruth Cruger went missing, there was a lot of alarm around the white person slave trading going on.

One of the reasons I found this book so fascinating was because how many of the issues and situations in this book, are still prevalent to this day.

When Ruth first disappeared, the police put it down to Ruth being a “bad girl”, and that she had just run off with some unknown man. Even though there was absolutely no proof of this. The only thing that Ruth took with her were her ice skates, no extra clothes, no money, just the skates.

The police did not thoroughly investigate Alfred Cochi’s, motorbike shop, where Ruth was heading to get to her skates sharpened. When it came out later, it was found that Alfred repaired and adjust a lot, if not all of the NYPD motorbike patrol bikes, at the same time.

When Mary Grace Quackenbos, started to investigate the Army though. With underage girls being taken back to their local training camps, a couple had disappeared. That was when she went too “far”. That’s when people started to question her, even though, by the evidence at the time, she was correct. Some of the local soldiers, were taking underage girls back with them. The Patriarchy decided that was a “step too far”. She was trying to smear the name of the Army…All of a sudden all the police originally question with the Ruth Cruger case, were suddenly let off, some got promotions, most were welcome back. MGQ, lost all her prominent positions. The media were HORRIBLE to her. After, they decided to credit the male detectives with the discovery of Ruth Cruger, even though it was because of MGQ constant poking and prodding. The male detectives physically brought out the body.

Quackenbos, just you know:

  • Got the search warrants approved.
  • Talked to Alfred’s wife, who was being a pain.
  • Actually questioned the police and dug more into the original witnesses accounts.
  • Listened to the family plea’s of “She had been kidnapped, she would never have just run off”.
  • Did some ACTUAL investigation into the Cochi’s.
  • Found the blue prints for them to dig around the Cochi’s cellars.
  • Oh, bought the Cochi’s house. So the detectives could get into the Cochi’s old cellar.

You know though, it was the male detectives.

Sound familiar?

This could literally be today, and it makes you wonder, really.
