Fun blogs about the wonderful world of books and learning!
Learn something new every day (or week)
Creating a new category is so much fun! I decided to once talk about something I’ve learnt during the week. I can’t sit there and talk about learning new things without sharing! Now some you of may be aware of these things I will be writing about, but for me and maybe some others…It may be something entirely new!
I have started to see more WOC stand against JKRowling, and you LOVE to see it, don’t you! Some (white) women were saying that someone like Beyonce would be horrified, and stand with Rowling. Beyonce would denounce the violence, but Beyonce is also trans-inclusive. I highly doubt that she would have any respect for Rowling.
I highly doubt, somehow, that Beyonce would have respect for a white woman’s tears, crying “victim” while going out of her way to harm a vulnerable community. That’s more a Candace Owens “thing”.
It’s annoying me though, because white women should STILL know better than this.
So I had a funny comment the other day, and it made me really laugh, with them saying at the end “You probably wont publish this, but I’m aiming it at you”
Why wouldn’t I publish proof of cult thinking Australia? Proving my points? Haha…Long Post incoming…I will also just say that I don’t write a lot about Australian politics, mainly because most of my readers, are from overseas. So, for myself, I don’t think my readers would have much interest. Also from 6pm last night, my state has gone into a week long lockdown.
So I’m going to write about a few points of why our current Prime Minister has the nicknames Scummo and Slomo.
1* Now, when the vaccines first came out. Scott Morrison said that we were right near the front of the queue to get the vaccines. Turns out, that wasn’t true. Not even close, not even half, lol. There has been such anger about it, because not even our first line responders are covered yet. And considering that our aged sector (which is a Federal Government responsibility) was hit really hard during COVID, you’d think there’d be more vaccinee rollouts … Nope …
Major Australian aged care provider reveals just 15% of staff vaccinated as sector demands changes to rollout – The Guardian, Christopher Knaus: Thu 8th July, 2021.
In fact, if you read that article, there is a little bit about the Private Schools getting the vaccines over aged care facilities. Mainly in NSW.
“On the first part, despite assertions last year by the prime minister Scott Morrison that we were “front of the queue”, we have lagged well behind other nations. Most European countries began vaccinations just after Christmas, and the UK and US got going a bit earlier. Australia’s rollout only began on 22 February. “
And in fact, a previous Prime Minister of Australia, has done more to help with vacciness.
2. Now you might recognize the name Kevin Rudd…He’s our former PM, who ended up creating the biggest online signed petition in Australia’s History. The petition? Seeking a royal commission into Murdoch media. Which gained over 500,000 signatures.
3. One of the biggest reasons that Scott Morrison is called “SloMo” has not only got to do with the VERY slow rollout of the vaccines, which probably would have helped NSW, and in turn, the rest of Australia. Our Prime Minister has a tendency to “run away” when major things happen. When, as his first term as PM, we had a major bush fire, he took off to Hawaii. When Australian’s weren’t allowed to travel, he was travelling to interstate and international sports events.
4. One of the things that I found funny about this comment, was when I was told Scott Morrisons religions was his own personal business. Which is correct, except that Scummo KEEPS making HIS Religion part of his “leadership”.
“On Friday, March 13, the Prime Minister announced a ban on gatherings of 500 people, however the ban would not actually start until Monday. No reason was explicitly given for the delay between the announcement and the commencement of the ban, but Hillsong’s Colour Conference in Sydney’s North East was attended by over 3000 people on Saturday, March14th. As the crisis has continued to escalate the government has been forced to take stricter measures in regards to lockdowns. The NSW Police have been granted extra powers to enforce a mandatory lockdown where people can no longer leave the house for non-essential reasons. These restrictions are set to be lifted on July 1, which is conveniently one week before Hillsong’s next scheduled mega conference to be held at Qudos Bank Arena over 4 days. [Personal note: The conference is ironically titled ‘Breathe Again’ whilst we’re in the middle of an epidemic that attacks the respiratory system.]”Hillsong Gets Away Scott Free – Elle Black: Medium
But there’s even better news for the Prime Minister if his tax cut package gets the Senate’s approval.
Mr Morrison stands to double his money and secure an $11,000-a-year tax cut in 2024 if he’s still in the top job.
The independent remuneration tribunal announced a 2 per cent increase to all MPs’ pay on Thursday.
The Prime Minister has secured three pay rises in just a year, taking his annual salary to $549,229 annually.
Note* Over the past decade, there usually has been 60 to 70 sitting days in non-election years, dropping to around 50sitting days in election years. However, 2019 will earn the dubious distinction of having the lowest number of sitting days in that period, with 35 of its 45 sitting days occurring after the May election. Again … The Prime Minister has secured three pay rises in just a year, taking his annual salary to $549,229 annually.

7. I can’t even begin to explain to you all how badly the Prime Minister and Federal Government have attacked the Victorian People. Compared to NSW. Now NSW pretty much got the whole ball rolling with COVID in Australia, re the Ruby Princess. Including Federal Minister Spud Head Peter Dutton. Our current PM kept calling NSW the “Gold Star Standard” for COVID … Due to the slow response from the NSW state leader … and now this ….
I can’t begin to stress, Australia did well (not so much NSW) because of our state leaders and the Australian people. Not because of our Prime Minister, or our Federal Government. They made the Australian people’s (especially Victorians) mental health worse, NOT better. We survived this (not so much NSW), because of US. Like, the Australian people have to survive this current Prime Ministers “term”. We did it, because of AUSTRALIANS. … Somehow, lol
Not once, has the Federal Government ever apologised for it’s failures resulting in deaths (COVID Aged Care deaths and Robodebt Suicides). They’ve never actually apologised for anything, when it comes down to it. Are they trying to tell us that they are perfect and never do anything wrong?
So, dear A Wondering Minstrel I am not only going to reply to you (which I did) but I am also going to publish your comment, on here as well. So everyone can see it…Happy =D What exactly are you doing?
As for Dan Andrews “lying”, he didn’t lie. He didn’t know. That’s not the same thing.
On Monday Mr Eccles was asked if he had passed it on to Mr Andrews. “I’m not saying that I didn’t. I’m saying that I’m not aware that I did or I didn’t,” he said.
At LEAST Dan Andrews can acknowledge problems, but also APOLIGISE‘S for them. You need to be able to prove that he knew, it’s no good saying he was given message’s THROUGH other people. As that means he was lying. Did Andrews reply to anyone?
Do you even care about what actually started COVID in Australia? Don’t you *think* that should be looked into as well? It’s “funny” how you’re all “Dan Andrews lied once”, but just ignore the Federals Government not only lack of responsibility for ANYTHING, but not apoligise and no inquiries either, the lying. Is that because Morrison will just run away again?
When you honestly look at that list, do you actually think Andrews “lying” is really the worst that anyone in our current Government is doing? Too even get into as well: Robodebt Ruby Princess. Sports Rort Christian Porter Brittany Higgins
As well as the disrespect that Morrison has to shown to WOMEN in Parliament. Honestly, I could keep writing all week with what Morrison does.
Like, really…I can tell that you don’t know what you’re doing. I have no idea what you even mean by “racism” I suspect that’s just a buzzword you like to throw out, lol
In short, if you don’t want to be embarrassed with your own stupidity. Don’t challenge me to not post your comments, Murdoch Sheeps…I totally will, and I will embarrassed you with the facts.
So many people are starting to celebrate this in Australia now. It is kind of nice, but at the same time. I have no idea where it came from! I’m hoping it started in Australia though.
You see, Christmas in Australia is pretty much, smack bang, in the middle of Summer. January is the middle of Summer, so it’s pretty close. Also though our “Christmas” in July, is in the middle of Winter (hence why I’m writing about it on the 14th). Close to the middle of the year, in the middle of Winter.
No one could really do it last year though. Though I suspect some did.
I really do love the idea though, what normally entails with a Christmas in July Party:
“Ugly” Christmas Jumpers
Traditional Christmas meals, but with a twist. As an example, we have a family friend who wraps up the brussels sprouts in bacon! She also makes the best truffles.
People tend to make more Winter/Christmas drinks, like your mulled wines and eggnog. As these Christmas drinks actually become more drinkable, because the weather is cooler, the eggnog doesn’t go off as quickly and make you sick -.-
People do buy each other presents too! However, they are normally silly (sometimes rude) little things. From a pound or 99c type shop.
(I don‘t know why WP is making my text only partly highlighted).
So I got into a interesting discussion with a guy about how gender activists are the actual MRA’s because they say people have to accept people with penises as lesbians.
I’m just going to do a quick explanation of why what he was saying, was in fact, MRA “vibe”.
MRA = Men’s Rights Activists
One, throughout History there have been a lot of people complain about how they’re being forced to accept something they don’t like. White people didn’t want POC in their school. Anti-Maskers don’t like wearing masks, so and so forth. Facts are, the reason why sane people accept this and let it happen. Is because they find out in the end that having POC in school, doesn’t actually harm anyone. Wearing a mask doesn’t harm anyone.
So just because they may not have liked it, at some point you have to accept it. Especially when it becomes clear that no harm is coming to you. So too accept that some people with penises call themselves lesbians, does no harm to you. And unless you know someone’s story, then you shut up, lol.
Two, MRA’ LOVE to dictate all the time what “this” means or what “that” means. ie what a “good wife” means, what a “good woman” means. So when a man, TERF or GC say THEY get to do it. THAT’S MRA.
Thirdly, gender “activist saying to “accept” that people are allowed to call themselves whatever they want ISN’T being MRA. Because that’s giving human beings the FREEDOM to be who they are. When you are trying to dictate who someone is and isn’t, THAT’S MRA.
Fourthly, you don’t have to like something and you don’t have to date a trans person. But you also don’t get to dictate who another human being is. THAT’S MRA.
Just a note as well, not all trans people go through a medical transition, some just simply can’t afford too. Some don’t feel like they have too. Both are valid. If you, unfortunately, come across a man/male who is transphobic. You’ve probably interacting with a MRA.
… Being a white European in a country, that has been colonised and saying to other people who want to live in your white European colonised country. That they have to abide by OUR culture. Completely and utterly forgetting that if they want to abide by the actual cultural of that country, that means abiding by the culture of the Indigenous cultures that are still (luckily) there.
Also, how are they not adhering to the “Australian” culture? They’ve come from a foreign land, according to WS, they’re taking over…So again, exactly what the white Europeans did to the Aboriginal people. Refuse to learn the language (according to them) How many Aboriginal languages do they know? (The answer is none) And the Chinese are throwing money where they see problems, just like the white Europeans did to the Aboriginal people’s when they created welfare. They also want to stick to their own Religion, just like the white Europeans did and did not conform to the Aboriginals Stories, at all. These foreigners are very much adhering to Australian “Culture” by all accounts really.
Now this is a map showing which Aboriginal Tribe were in which areas. I have been trying to find one that I can actually read, lol.
Actually, people who hate on strangers are probably more likely to have had a tragic childhood. Hate is taught. A lot of therapists, actually think that Trump (as an example) probably had some traumatic incident when he was a child. And thus, he’s been stuck at that mental child age.
It makes logical sense when you*THINK* about it. Those who are bullied, become bullies, like transphobia. Chances are, it’s more likely that people who are being transphobic, are far more likely to have had a traumatic childhood, or were raised by bigoted parents.
Common sense would dictate that trying to bully, harass and take away the rights of people who are not only strangers to you, but you don’t know any, and haven’t been harmed by that group. THAT’S not normal. Trans and gay people are definitely normal. Its just their brains are wired differently, that’s it. They’re still normal though. Whatever that is, anyway.
New Atheism appeared to offer moral clarity, it emphasized intellectual honesty and it embraced scientific truths about the nature and workings of reality. It gave me immense hope to know that in a world overflowing with irrationality, there were clear-thinking individuals with sizable public platforms willing to stand up for what’s right and true — […]
I don’t think for a single second JKRowling gives a single crap about stopping violence against women.
On my Twitter account, there was a woman with a huge following, one of them was Rowling. This “woman” wished raped on myself and the women in my family, because I stand with trans people. This “grown up” woman, also and repeatedly threatened to follow trans kids into bathrooms and beat them up. That account is now gone.
Rowling was silent.
When everything started to come out and is kind of still going, about Johnny Depp. She was all “Oh, it wasn’t my decision to hire him”.
‘Fantastic Beasts’ actor Kevin Guthrie was sentenced to 3 years in jail for 2017 sexual assault, just in May this year … Again … Rowling is silent.
You are not going to ever make me believe that Rowling gives a shit about stopping violence against women. In fact, she reposted Maya Forstater tweet of “We Won” Maya Forstater, the person that brought out Rowling clear transphobia side. The only thing Maya “won” was the right to go to a employee tribunal against her old employees. Where she would just lose again. The other thing she “won”, was confirmation that her transphobia is a protected BELIEF.
I’ve posted some links below, to see how you can help families:
A lot of organisations have the Pride Flag in their company’s logo with no understanding of what it stands for and what it represents. If the LGBTQIA community had given into bigots and bullies, especially transphobia this year, there would be no Pride Month to begin with!
