Wednesday Wives Tales

This isn’t going to become a regular blog post. One of the reasons I love blogging is because of the advice, the information that I learn about every single day. What I would love to know about, how many of you have “old wives tales”, or general advice that you think would be helpful?

Can be anything:

A cold/flu remedy

Help with gut issues?

Sleeping remedies?

How to block a writers block?

Sage Advice, that works for you.

Protected Beliefs

What with the Maya Forstater case recently, what a better time to explain what “protected belief” means and what it does not mean.

Layman wise it’s means you can believe whatever you want. Also layman wise, it also means you CANNOT harass, discriminate and be violent towards others.

So you can believe there is a man who lives in the moon.

You can have a religious belief.

You can believe that Unicorns truly do exist.

You can “believe” that white people are better than POC.

You can believe that the earth is flat.

You can believe that wearing a mask is restricting your speech.

This is all protected.

What is not protected, is harassing, demeaning, degrading and being violent towards other people who don’t believe in what you believe in. Just like others can’t do that towards you and what you believe in.

It’s been interesting to see TERFs and Gender Criticals bragging how MF “won”. All she won was the opportunity to appeal at the employment tribunal. Which she would probably still lose anyway, it’ll be interesting to see if she goes for it. She also “won” the confirmation that what she thinks IS a belief. I really wish the main stream media, would be a bit smarter than this. But then again, we are talking about main stream media.

A little bit of LGBT “Science”

Just a quick blog about some of the History behind LGBT. I decided to write this, because a lot of TERFs and Gender Criticals don’t like being compared to the Far Right, Fascists’, or the beginning of the Nazis. Honestly, I don’t care if you don’t like being compared to a group that you don’t like, especially if you are doing what they do, or what they have done.

Expect a lot of “Did you know”

So…Did you know that the Nazi’s actually burnt down the first “modern day” LGBTQIA learning center?

LGBTQ Institute in Germany was burned down by Nazi’s – Teen Vogue, 2017: LUCY DIAVOLO

On May 6, 1933, Nazi demonstrators raided the libraries of the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, a German name that roughly translates to the Institute of Sexology. The Institute was a privately operated research space for studies of human sexuality. More than 20,000 books were taken from shelves and burned days later in the streets by Nazi youth groups.

It was a blow to the life’s work of Magnus Hirschfeld, the institute’s founder. Hirschfeld, was himself Jewish and gay. He was a pioneer for rights and liberation in Berlins LGBTQ community. Founding the institute in 1919, after beginning his career as an activist in 1896, he created the pamphlet Sappho and Socrates, about a gay man who took his own life after he felt he was being coerced into a straight marriage.

The resources and data at Institut für Sexualwissenschaft were never replaced.

The next two links, are links to papers that demonstrate how the a trans brain works and how a gay brain works. These are very complicated. These are actual academic papers, and are not from teen vogue.

It should also be noted that LGBTQIA is a relatively new “Science”, so not everything is 100% known. Especially since the destruction of Magnus Hirschfeld’s work, there’s hasn’t been much to go on. Other than how older cultures and religions have represented the LGBTQIA community.

Structural connections in the brain in relation to gender identity and sexual orientation

Breast cancer risk in transgender people receiving hormone treatment: nationwide cohort study in the Netherlands

This large nationwide cohort study in the Netherlands showed an increased risk of breast cancer in trans women compared with cisgender men. The risk in trans women is still lower than in Dutch cisgender women and resembles a more female type of breast cancer and hormone receptor status. In trans men, a lower risk compared with Dutch cisgender women was observed.

This is a completely fascinating paper. If you don’t want to read too much, and you’re like me. Not very smart, Science-wise. This has pictures! Haha … Showing the differences, and you can definitely see them!

Republicans need to stop speaking for God…. “Politics, religion collide in transgender debate at Virginia school — Kira Moore’s Closet”

A Northern Virginia religious leader is accused of “libelous and inflammatory” comments by Loudoun County Democrats after weighing in on a controversy involving a teacher’s views on transgender rights. Pastor Gary Hamrick of Cornerstone Chapel, a nondenominational church in Leesburg, said during Sunday’s service that he supported recall efforts against six Loudoun County School Board […]

Politics, religion collide in transgender debate at Virginia school — Kira Moore’s Closet

At some point, mainly now. At some point though, Republicans NEED to stop speaking like they are God. Who is this “teacher” to sit there and say that he would be lying to the child? Did God not create this child? Is he saying that God got it wrong? What lesson could “teachers” like this one, take from this?

What Feminism is not

Having noticed that TERFs have been calling themselves “Feminist” a lot lately. I will tell you what it is not.

Firstly TERFism is not Feminism, haha

Whether you agree or call yourself one or not. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t automatically mean you are a feminist.

I consider myself a Feminist, because I believe in Equality. Now there is another term that people like to use “Equalitarian”. Which is basically, equality for both sexes.

I personally, have no problem with either of these terms. They mean pretty much the same thing. Feminism just has a focus on Females/Women.

Feminism itself though, is not a weapon to use against others to “get back” at those who have abused the patriarchy.

Feminism is not a excuse to hide behind and attack others.

Feminism is not a excuse to hide behind women and girls, and attack others.

Feminism is for equality.

You can’t have feminism without men either. Men can absolutely be Feminists too. If we choose to exclude men from feminism, how would that make it better than the patriarchy?

Wont somebody think about the children!

I hate seeing bigots use children as a way to spread their bigotry. For a few reasons:

  1. They always underestimate
  2. They always thinks kids have no clue
  3. They don’t want to “safe keep” kids, they want to “gate keep” kids.
  4. They all think kids don’t know who they are, and what’s best for them.

Kids know precisely who they are, it’s the adults who keep telling them that they don’t know who they are, that make kids believe they don’t know who they are.

The next part of my blog is going to be a little sensitive. So I hope I write this “correctly”.

It really grosses me out when adults sit there talking about kids being gay, like kids being gay, are being gay because they’re having sex. My brother and cousin told us a couple of years after they “came out”. They always knew they were gay. It’s because society taught them, that heterosexuality’s was the “normal” sexuality. That they must be wrong (but not wrong). Both my brother and my male cousin, had girl friends in high school.

This movie, as an example, this whole scene. The movie itself, is rated PG or G. Yet, I know this particular scene is shown by grown ups, every where. Children watch and are allowed to watch this scene, with no parents there. But are you all going to tell me this didn’t awaken some girls and boys? This scene IS sexual. Yet, it’s only rated PG and G. Pride and Prejudice is all about heterosexuality, love and marriage.

It’s actually quiet sexual. The flirting, the lake scene, the whole “marrying well”.

Knowing your a straight or gay, does not = automatic sexuality or implied “having” sex. It just means you recognise that you like boys or girls more, or possibly both even.

I am Woke

And ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Do I get things wrong? Sure.

Still Woke though.

So too me, being “Woke” also is another way of saying you’re awake. ie being awake to injustices, rather than asleep or blind too them.

So why do those on the Right and Conservatives, say “woke” like it’s a bad thing?

It’s kind of like when Trump Supporters would (and still do) call Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” … I’m sorry, what’s the problem with being able to sleep, rather than staying up too all hours madly tweeting away?
