Things I don’t understand…

*…Which I have to say is increasing, these things I don’t understand*

People who go into the Entertainment News section and complain about it not being “news”…When in literally every news-site and newspaper, there is global news…If you don’t like reading celebrity news, why are you reading celebrity news? Who put the gun to your head, that made you read that? I think you need to question those people, rather than the people who are writing about Celebrities and Entertainers in the Celebrity and Entertainment news section. Do they have trouble with understanding the differences between the news in each section?

It’s kind of like going to a clothing website and complaining how there’s no food on the website? Well, yeah, that’s the clothing section, not the food section.

OR/AND

People who complain about how unbiased a particular programme or channel is and YET keep watching expecting things to change, when they don’t have actually have to watch it. Yet, at the same time they don’t want to listen and change their minds, but they’re not being biased themselves? The weirdness of it all!

What I think…

*These opinions and views are entirely my own*

I feel like I have to get this off my chest, because it really bugs me…Men getting raped isn’t “okay” or “alright” because when a women gets raped we get called liars and all sorts…Guess what, when a man gets raped the EXACT same things happen. They get made fun of, they get told “Why didn’t you just fight her off” It is NEVER “better” for the opposite gender to be hurt the exact same way. It’s not okay to rape ANYONE and it is not “better” for men to get raped over women…That is NOT a feminist way of life…or way of thought…You are NOT a feminist if that’s what you think.

There…I got it off my chest

I am tired of women calling themselves “feminist” and then with things like this, somehow it’s alright for men to suffer…By the way I have noticed that it also usually other women who will hate on another women more who say “Rape”. If you look up the famous cases, such as Bill Cosby, the majority of “commentators” are other women, and not in a positive light, like “We’re here with you”. Don’t even get me started with the Chris Browns supporters are mainly all women too. Even though the guy repeatedly has injunctions and restraining orders against him, it is amazing how many women praise him…What for, I’m not even sure what for. A lot of his songs have auto-tune.

How do you do it?

I was just thinking in the shower, as I do a lot, some of my greatest and most random thoughts happen in the shower…The one I had today was what do you do when you have a great thought for a Blog, but then have not much, or nothing to write down with? The only tool I can think of is having a little notebook in your bag at all time, or to have to “text” myself…What I’d really like to know though, do you have other suggestion?

Bull

Dr Phil

I honestly wish I could post this in Instagram comments sometimes! I’m sort of iffy with Dr Phil.

The amount of times I’ve encountered people who say horrible things because apparently if it’s been done to you, it’s okay for you to do it (see previous posts about my feelings about this here). Next time you say to someone you can’t say horrible things to others about race, sexism, sexual harassment, gender issues, because of who you are…Ask yourself when you’re spilling the same hate that was once spilt towards you …

“Hows that’s workin’ for you?

Oh, the Irony

*Just to warn…This is a bit of a “trigger” topic, please read with care <3*

I was reading Tweets yesterday about the various of groups of people who helped fight with our ANZAC Troops. One group being Muslim soldiers…Oh the controversy…There was one Tweet that sound ridiculous to me though. Where a “man” asked if the Muslim woman condoned the rape and beating of women

Now this is why it struck me…

No, the woman did not condone that behaviour…BUT…I find it slightly hilarious that this seems to be the biggest excuse why Muslims are “bad people”…I’m sorry, Us as a Western Society are so great at not raping and beating our women? Us, as a Western Society, are great at protecting at these women and also our gay community? Brock Turner anyone? Or how great we are at protecting people who are innocent? How great we are at protecting Women’s Health because it doesn’t sit well with a certain group of people? Planned Parenthood Defunded (So much for the “Land of the Free”)… I wonder how many times this guy has called a woman a liar as soon as she said “Rape” … Or condemned someone for staying with an abusive partner?

I think some people need to seriously sit down and have a long hard look at themselves before they start condemning another country, because really, are we that far off?
