The Libraries Lessons of Life
This page/category I have created after I filled a diary full of just one liner thoughts. Once a week I will share one of my one-liners. This category is a bit different from my “Random Thoughts” page as with my random thoughts they can go on a bit.
I have thought of what I want next year for my birthday…
I don’t want presents, and I don’t want money
What I want is a promise
From everyone who just wont defend me and makes excuses for people, especially family members who treat me like shit.
Too promise that they will never once say to me again, in any way whatsoever…That will never say to me again that will never put those people first.
I didn’t go to my non-birthday for them, or for anyone else. I turned up for me and to get presents that I MORE than deserved, and to dance. I swear even like an hour beforehand I wasn’t going to go. Then I thought, why the fuck shouldn’t I? I got free alcohol, presents and got out…but not for them.
After being completely humiliated this weekend, by my Aunt going to one of those “Freedom” “Protests” and her sign being completely and utterly wrong.
Here is a list of things that are simply simple.
Masks are not 100% perfect. Nothing else is either, they reduce the RISKS of getting COVID, or a flu, of spreading a disease or virus. I would say all businesses have to do a risk assessment, every so often. Does it stop accidents 100%? No, but that’s why you do a risk assessment, to reduce the risk. I don’t see the “Freedom Protestors” fighting those.
Let’s see, Rowling has defended Depp, Manson. She’s been quiet about a pregnant women, who was sacked from her production, for being pregnant and quiet about how a previous Fantastic Beasts actor is in jail for sexually assaulting an women. If that’s how one “protects women” … better the devil you know.
Anyone else noticed that the same people who said that Rittenhouse was not too emotional to travel borders with a gun (any gun), to a protest. Where he ultimately killed two people. Are the same people who say that people his age, are too emotional to understand their own body?
You absolutely have a choice to be vaccinated or not. If you chose not too, then be it on your head. But you absolutely have a choice, no one is forcing anyone to do anything. There was a news article in the 80’s (I believe) of when seats belts were first made Law. They were complaining about being “controlled” by the Government, then too. It’s a virus, it doesn’t care about your “rights” or your feelings, it’s not human, it’s a virus.
Veterinarians have been noticing an uptick in the number of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) cases in pet dogs and cats, which has been making news recently. Investigation into these cases has shown that in many instances, this heart condition in pets developed after contact with owners who tested positive for Covid infection. A […]
I am planning on doing a special stream today. As I write this up, I honestly have no idea what’s going to happen, but I am spending the Friday Night, thinking and asking for ideas. So I don’t step on any toes!
As with both these lovely ladies, I too … Have never understood the whole popularity or “what is cool” things
I know…It is shocking
Shows like Buffy, Sex in the City, Angel, E.R. etc … I love them, but when they first came out … I didn’t start watching them until a couple of seasons in. The only show I can remember watching when everyone else did, was Dawson’s Creek…You know something? I really don’t like it that much now.
Pacey can be annoying…
Too be honest I still don’t understand what they were talking about. What kind of teenagers were they!
See, I don’t mind not being popular, now that I’m older.
Everyone I know or knew, who one might consider “popular”. They’re all horrible, and in hindsight, they always were. What about yourselves?
So lovely ladies and jellyspoons … Who wants to be popular!
If you don’t talk to the people actually involved, why are you speaking for them?
Too me, it seems, if you don’t talk to trans people about trans issues, maybe don’t talk or make decisions about them. If you don’t talk to sex workers, don’t talk or make decisions about them.
I’m looking at you UK!
But this does apply generally.
I will write about a example though of when you should sort of debate with yourself, who you should listen to within these groups too.
Debbie Hayton is a trans woman, or not, depending on whether you are a “TRA” or a TERF or Gender Critical. Debbie is a trans woman though, who frequently (meaning all the time) sides with transphobic people. One thing she has said is “trans people are not marginalised, and I am trans!”. Now the problem with this, is one, Debbie is a late tranisitioner. Which in itself is not a problem, plenty of people transition later in life. But the reason for Hayton transitioning later? As she admitted herself, not because she didn’t know she was trans, but to protect her children from bullies.
If being trans isn’t marginalised, why do you (commendably) need to protect your children?
Like, if there’s no problem with transitioning … Surely you can just do it whenever you want? You wouldn’t need to worry about protecting your children. Take POC, a lot of POC parents have to talk to their children about how to be when they’re confronted by the police.
That’s just common sense, right?
Hayton is one example, by what I mean when I say, actually LISTEN.
I hate starting off the week with a sort of, not depressing type blog, but just a like “this should just be common sense” type post. I also can’t let this topic go.
There is a MP called Jackie Doyle, I am pretty sure that she’s Scottish. Who voted against Same Sex marriage, who of course is loved by any TERF, Gender Critical or LGB Alliance member. Yet, they make excuses for her voting against same sex marriage, and I quote “She was more in favour of civil partnership, because a few same sex people told her that they didn’t want same sex marriage, because marriage is regressive”
Okay, but that’s not a excuse to vote no still. Same Sex marriage was on the table, not civil partnership…Which since, has been on the table, because you can’t really have one without the other, that would make sense. Not all straight people want marriage these days, so should the rest of straight couples not be able to get married now?
Basically these transphobic people are excusing homophobia, because this MP is also transphobic.
When you consider the majority of first world countries voted YES on same sex marriage, and got it voted through. There’s not really a good enough reason to have voted “no”. Especially if you are actually for same sex partnerships to begin with, or even for civil partnership. If you are for same sex people being together and legally recognised as a couple, why would you vote no?
Why wouldn’t you just vote yes, and then work on civil partnership?
Do you know what I mean?
I got blocked by the person, by the way. Especially when I pointed out why wouldn’t you just vote yes on same sex marriage and then work on civil partnership, which would just naturally come with it. It’s SO simple, I managed to write it all in one tweet, lol
Have you all heard of that saying “No answer is a answer”? Well, that’s what a lot of TERFs, GCs and the BBC are doing right now. I wont go into huge detail about it. Needless to say, no one knows what the BBC is even trying to play right now. It’s 2021, we can see everything.
My main point of this blog, is to listen to what someone DOESN’T say.
There is only thing I’ll say about the Cade situation. At least she’s being honest, with how she feels. Which isn’t a good thing (think when Melania Trump said about how Trump is honest with everything he says).
However, the lack of transphobic people calling it out. Is very LOUD.
This is what I mean by listening to what someone doesn’t say. Someone may say “Of course I condemn what she said” but then they’ll give you a brush off, or a “gloss over”. Where they demand something in return for them condemning it, which of course, as we all know, eliminates the “of course I condemn it”.
