Indigenous Australia Day

Course Karl is upset about the Cricket. The guy’s big “expose” on Meghan Markle was an interview with Katie Hopkins, the UKs BIGGEST racist. #AustraliaDay I stand with #CricketAustralia and their decision to wear #IndigenousAustralia Jerseys. That IS Australian.

And if you think Sports has never been political…Are you in for a shock. Course Sports is political.

Why so many White Australians have a problem with moving a public holiday to another day, that doesn’t represent colonization. It’s just weird to me, why this is such a big deal. Why is it SUCH hard work to change a day, that doesn’t represent us NOW, to another day that would represent us NOW.

Any “Australian” that wants to kills off Koala’s to make money. Doesn’t have a single leg to stand on when talking about “What’s Australian” #KoalaKiller *cough* John Barilaro MP *cough*

If we, Australians, see these hypocritical comments for stupid elite leaders, and can’t see WHY we need to change the date from these comments alone. I don’t know what else to tell you.

#Jan26IsInvasionDay

By the way, I just found out that the “Australians of the Year” nominee’s were a majority, are of the Christian Faith -.- However, I am happy with who won “Australian of the Year”.

Let There Be Hope!

One of the reason I dislike Twitter so much, is because there are so many people on there that are so negative!

Every where else there is Joy and Happiness, that Trump is gone. All on Twitter is mainly well Trump is gone, but how good is Biden…On day, not even ending one! Despite Biden a whole lot of good on day one. People still were complaining that Biden would be just as bad as Trump…

So let’s ingore them, let’s ignore the stupid “Biden Erased Women” hashtag in the LGBTQIA protections. After all, aren’t LBTQIA women too?

I want to know what gives you hope? What gives you hope that never can be extinguished. NEVER!

One for me, is Biden reinstating protection for the LGBTQIA community.

TRUMP IS GONE!!! He could still run again, but I doubt he’d win.

We got to live in the time with Robin Williams in the world =D (Sort of a continuation from the last post).

Celtic Music, that’s my “fighting” music!

The magic of good in other people.

The magic of animals.

Thursday Theories – Aphrodite, Venus

This is the theory that actually inspired me to write about Theories.

You can get the link here, where I first became really interested in writing about these topics. I needed to do more research into other theories first, so I had more than just this one. Fantastic thing though, I am in love with programs from National Geographic. Always an interesting starting point

This blog post is about the Goddess, Venus.

There are three different Gods, they talk about. The one that spoke to me most though, the one that really got me, was the episode about Venus.

As you probably all know, Gods and Goddesses are generally taken from other cultures. So Venus, is more than likely based on Aphrodite.

The biggest reason why this particular video, episode of the series fascinated me was because, and in case you hadn’t noticed, I consider myself to be a trans ally. Now I had tapped the three episodes at the beginning of 2020, but didn’t actually get around to watching them until closer to the end, because we needed more space.

When I got around to watching it. The Professor, begins in Cyprus, the goddess’s birthplace, Bettany decodes Venus’s relationship to the Greek goddess Aphrodite, and, in turn, Aphrodite’s mixed-up origins both as a Cypriot spirit of fertility and procreation – but also, as a descendant of the prehistoric war goddesses of the Near and Middle East, Ishtar, Inanna and Astarte. We start to see the Venus is about desire of all kinds – malign as well as benign. Hughes meets world experts who reveal the mysterious and obscure ways this ancient goddess was imagined and worshipped (including as a bearded, gender-fluid woman and even as a giant, sinister, volcanic rock).

Which is obviously a far cry from the “set in stone” so to speak, image of Venus being a all “natural” woman. It really did peak my interest, considering how many TERFs out there, use Venus/Aphrodite as being nothing more than a woman. When you really get into it, Venus, Aphrodite, Ishtar, Innana and Astarte weren’t necessarily worshiped because of love and chocolates. But more they were worshipped, because of the strong feelings they invoked in individuals. Strong feelings of love and hate, of desire, of sexuality.

Appreciate A Dragon Day

Appreciate a Dragon Day began when Donita K. Paul wanted to celebrate the publishing of her first fantasy novel “Dragonspell”, part of the five-volume series, The DragonKeeper Chronicles.

Today is the day to appreciate the Dragon in your life…All Dragons!

Facts about Dragons:

Dragon legends appear in nearly all cultures.

In China, dragons symbolize wealth, power, and leadership

In China, emperors were believed to be descendants of dragons

A little dragon is called a “dragonet.”

In mythology, a female dragon is called a drakaina, which is the feminine form of the ancient Greek word for dragon, drakon.

The word “dragon” comes from the ancient Greek word draconata, meaning “to watch” or “to see.”  The root may refer to a dragon’s reputation for guarding treasure, either real or metaphorical.

Dragons from Eastern cultures are more often depicted as kind, wise, and benevolent. Dragons from Western cultures typically are fire-breathing, evil, and symbolic of the battle between good and evil.

Red-colored stones are sometimes called “dragon stones” because they were believed to be hardened lumps of dragon blood.

The Uroboros, or tail-biting dragon, symbolizes the eternal circle of life. It is also an important symbol for medieval alchemists.

Scholars trace the dragon myth to ancient Babylon, 4,000 years ago. According to a Babylonian creation myth, Tiamat, a giant sea dragon, was murdered and his body cut in two, creating the sky and earth. From the dragon’s blood sprang the first human.

Question Mark? What did you question?

So 2020 hit us all in different way, but I would like to know. How many of you questioned something, you’d never thought of before BECAUSE of 2020. As an not an example, what makes right wingers *things*. More things like, as a example. In my state in Australia, we went into a 6 day lockdown, strict, literally only essentials opened. So hospitals, supermarkets. I can’t remember if the local GP’s had to shut down too. However, it only ever ended up being 3 days, I think? The person lied essentially.

One of the places that were opened before, but not during this 6 day lockdown were our local and big named company alcohol shops. During the 6 day lockdown they were deemed to be not essential, and places sold out! It made me wonder “How reliant is our society on alcohol?” Most people have at least one thing in their fridge or you know bourbon or rum in their cupboards. It was only going to be for six day, only one person was allowed to go to the shops, and you most definitely were not allowed to have others over.

6 days, that was going to be it.

Then I saw someone I follow on Twitter, say that her and her husbands goal for the year, was too ONLY drink alcohol on the weekends, and not during the week. They were worried! Sometimes I’ll have a glass of something during the week, but not ALL the time, and not every week. Where it becomes a problem, that I don’t know what other non-alcohol beverages there are, lol.

And what is it with people who are “not into water” How can someone not *be* into water? Unless you’re allergic or something.

Religion and Succinct

I will start by saying Religion, I don’t mind it. I just don’t like when those who use it to discriminate and spread hate.

One of my friends on Facebook, has someone “woe is me” because Biden is a Catholic, that is pro-choice. Somehow that means, America is going to be worst off with a pro-choice POTUS. Because America is doing so well with a “pro-life” POTUS.

COVID Deaths are at 365K+.

4 people died in the Capital Hill “take over”…Wait…5 now.

Trump told the people who just walked into Capital Hill “We Love You”.

Now I know that Trump Supporters aren’t the best thinkers in the world. One of the questions she asked me if it’s supposed to be Religion and State separated, why does abortion always come up at election time. Well, because you keep bringing it up?

Then when she brought up the “Thou shalt not kill”. I asked one) if she wants to follow the commandments, why support Trump? lol. But also two) God kills a lot of people in the Bible, including babies.

This is where Religions like Christianity and Catholicism loses me, there are a lot of inconsistencies.

Not with all people, but just those who are like must follow Jesus, Trump Supporters. Except they don’t follow the teachings.

Word

Someone made a very good point on Facebook. Those who already get it though, will still get it. After the conuffle that was Trump Supporters storming the US Capital. A lot of people were relieved that finally Facebook, Twitter, etc blocked and deleted certain Trump Supporters. I saw this on Facebook.

What’s the point of blocking or deleting Trumps accounts NOW?! The damage is done, the words are out there! And they have been for 4+ years!

I’m glad that Georgia helped America win…But WHY was it SO close? It should have been a landslide! Just like Biden win. Very glad he won, but the win should have been bigger!

Who didn’t see this all coming?

I feel so drained now. I was actually suspended from Twitter, for repeating what a TERF said. TERF’s are getting worse on Twitter and we could all see it coming! They’re actually bragging on Twitter, how they know they’re abusing the Twitter abuse reporting function. I do blame Twitter, I do blame Facebook. I get it’s scary, but there are so many people who should have be banned from Twitter a LONG time ago! Why do they keep waiting till the last possible second, when there’s no reason too?

Georgia Runoffs – Jan 5th

This is, without a doubt, and apart from the most the recent Presidential elections. Probably the most important elections in US election History!

If Democrats win both runoffs in Georgia, they get 50 seats overall and a majority on January 20 with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris breaking a 50-50 tie.

If Republicans win either seat, they will hold the Senate majority.

Right now, Democrats may very well defy historical trends and win both races to achieve a Senate majority. If Democrats do it, they’ll probably be able to thank Republican President Donald Trump. Indeed, this election isn’t just about Georgia and the Senate majority. It’s about Trump’s legacy. If Republicans lose in Georgia, Trump will be to blame. Republicans in purple states will have to think long and hard about being attached to Trump in the future, even after he has left office.” CNN

Election Day for the U.S. Senate and Public Service Commission runoffs is January 5, 2021. You can vote in person during the early voting period or on Election Day. You can also request an absentee ballot to vote by mail. There are also additional local elections and runoffs in some areas. Please contact your local election official for more information.

Happy Birthday Tolkien!

My first post for 2021! I wanted to start 2021 with a complete positive post! What is more positive than wishing a very celebrated and beloved author a happy birthday.

If Tolkien was still alive, he would have been 129…Probably not very probable then.

I have always loved Middle Earth and Tolkiens world, more than any other world. Including Arthurian! I really love the Arthurian world, I want to name (if I have a) my daughter Morgana. I don’t think I could name a girl Arwen or Eowyn, she’d get bullied I actually would prefer Arwen, but sensibility wise, it has to be Morgana. You know…Duhhh…

Tolkien created a magical powerful world, all down to the little details, and Tolkien NEVER went with popular fan theories unlike some authors *coughs* Rowling *coughs*. Tolkien’s work was original. Yes, the eagles annoy everyone, but one, read the books, and two, read the books.
