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!
Anyone who has been abused, raped, assaulted. It’s likely by someone we know, stranger attacks are rarer. If you have had this happen and you can’t be around trans people or masculine women. #Women aren’t your therapists. If YOU have a problem, seek help. Don’t use us to harm others.
I am not going to hold your hands and tell you it’s okay to hate on trans people, because YOU have a phobia. Get therapy.
I cannot believe what is happening in the UK right, over a minor Bill that EVERY party in Scotland voted for.
The GRR is for trans people, and I am assuming intersex people as well. Too change their gender/sex on personal documents, like birth certificates, passports. It has NOTHING whatsoever to do with “spaces”. Trans people can already use the bathroom of their gender, for over a decade (I believe).
Scotland is not the first country to have a GRR and it is not the only country to recognise this. Only last week, the Tories were going to essentially “trans ban” countries that did included Australia
Why do cis women deserve more protections than any other vulnerable person? We’re not Gods, we’re not therapists, we’re not delicate little flowers and I refuse to be treated as such. If you have a problem with trans people, you seek help.
I am sure that I have mentioned this before, but Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews, may be one of the best Premiers that Australia has.
First a bit about George Pell. George Pell, AC was an Australian cardinal of the Catholic Church. He served as the inaugural prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy between 2014 and 2019, and was a member of the Council of Cardinal Advisers between 2013 and 2018. Ordained a priest in 1966 and bishop in 1987, he was made a cardinal in 2003.
He was also nearly convicted of covering up pedophilia. He went through two courts and was found guilty, until the third court case. He was essentially Australia’s most powerful Catholic. He WAS also, one of the worst.
Dan Andrews, Victorian premier has made it “very clear” there will not be a state memorial service for George Pell, saying he couldn’t think of “anything more distressing” for abuse survivors.
“This will be a challenging time for friends and family … but also this will be a very challenging time for victim-survivors of institutional child sexual abuse, so our thoughts are with them,” he said.
While a memorial will be held at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, where the late cardinal will be buried, the NSW government is also believed to have decided against a state memorial. Can I just say, that that is fantastic. There will be something for people who actually don’t think that man is in Hell right now.
But abuse survivors can rest a little easier, they find no justice on Earth, but they’ll know, Pell is in Hell.
I think the poop in the drinking water, is finally seeping into the UK citizens brains.
And it isn’t just about the anti-trans Tories trying to segregate trans people. Oh yeah, I used that word, because that’s what’s happening right now.
The country of Sir Winston Churchill, suddenly doesn’t understand what a War is. Despite celebrating numerous Royal Family members for serving, including splashing Harrys face everywhere when he fought the Taliban.
The obsession with Meghan is quiet, odd, to be frank. It’s not normal. Would Piers Morgan even have a show without Meghan Markle?
The media, seemingly angrily intent on proving Harrys points about them.
And what is with the whole “The Royal Family are keeping a dignified silence…Here’s how they feel”
And why in HELL are Brits being sympathetic towards the Taliban? They splash Harrys face everywhere saying he’s fighting the Taliban, and then surprised he killed some? What do they think the Ukraine Military’s are doing, beating the Russians with hugs and love?
You’ve got “grown” up women asking where Meghan is, while Harry say his piece. Why do you care where she is? You’re all still blaming her anyway.
Lets just be honest, if Hitler said he hated Harry and Meghan, there a lot of media who’d welcome him in with open arms.
Most of these “grown ups” are also anti-trans and deny that trans and LGBQ+ youth even exist. Karen, you’re still blaming Meghan for everything Harrys saying and you care that she’s not said anything? Why?
According to literal TERF and GC “logic” disagreeing with a woman, or women, makes you a misogynist. One of the reasons that transphobia keeps losing in a lot of places, is because although they were told that their transphobia is a protected belief. Like, that’s it. It’s a belief, it’s not based in reality, transphobia is based on a FEAR.
So, according to their own logic, they’re misogynists too. Rowling, especially. So ladles and jellyspoons, if you’ve ever disagreed with a woman. According to the transphobes … “YOU’RE A MISOGYNIST…YOU’RE A MISOGYNIST…YOU’RE A MISOGYNIST…YOU’RE A MISOGYNIST”
#Angelina Jolie IS powerful, #Princess Diana was powerful, #Malala Yousafzai IS powerful, none of them are loud. They don’t sit behind a computer, in their castle, wearing a tshirt that harasses a female WORLD leader. They get out just GET ON WITH IT.
Rowling has unlimited access to help women, she could literally make a CHAIN of female only crisis center. Why SHOULD Nicola Sturgeon have to listen to ANYTHING Rowling says? Rowling CHOOSES to sit in her castle, and tweet.
There’s this “thing” that transphobes say that there’s only two sexes, and two genders. Neither are true. Any time you try to bring up Intersex people, they will say “Intersex people want to be left out of it” This is because there was an intersex person on Twitter, who was transphobic. Other intersex people are generally fine, because they are not transphobic.
Lets be honest, if we’re going to get things right, we have to include us all. It’s not “Scientific” to leave a group out, because it makes it inconvenient for others. It makes me infuriated that transphobic people use intersex people and that one person does not dictate the rest. Transphobes need too let it go, other people exist.
So Gym Jordan *thinks* the Left are “mad” that there’s Free Speech on Twitter. Which I am pretty sure that’s not actually Twitters job, since it’s a private company and all.
There’s a difference between # Free Speech and just lies. Quiet frankly, I don’t care who says what on Twitter, it just makes it all the easier to show you for who you really are Gym. It also makes it MUCH easier to convict people for hate crimes and inciting it. Hows Alex Jones going?
My little life for #TransAwarenessWeek There is a trans woman, I did not know for years is trans. I also know a lesbian whose engaged to a trans man and a lesbian whose dating a trans woman. Such a “fuss” I can fit it all in one tweet, lol. Its just not a deal in my life.
Also just want to say being a cis woman during #TransAwarenessWeek I have learnt so much about bodies, science and importantly #language from trans people. How it changes, how it has never stayed the same. How beautiful it is when used properly, and I don’t mean just grammar. I suspect that a lot of transphobic leaders know perfectly well what they’re doing. They know perfectly well the language they use, is only used to hurt and harm. Which is why when people start coming around, don’t let them forget it.
I have to admit I do laugh a lot when transphobes in particular, think that trans people, non-binary people DON’T know anything about sex. Apart from those in the medical and health industry, I would trust trans people more than others to understand how our bodies and sex works. They’re living it every single day.
When I started to write about my little life on Twitter. The first thing I was hit with was about the rape crisis center’s thing again. I am going to give credit too only two TERFs here. You can, in fact, apply for a female only crisis center, it just makes sense, right? I know of at least two TERFs who tried to raise money for them. The TERFs decided they wanted to sue Stonewall instead. The amount of centers Rowling could raise on her OWN, but CHOSE to sue Stonewall.
So, don’t come at me with “what about those women who want same sex crisis centers” You can literally raise the money for one yourselves, so clearly NOT that big of a deal for them. I’m not even going to start with jails/prisons. That’s a big topic.
One thing really, right now it’s #RemembranceDay in #Australia. The big reason I am going to stay off social media, in general, today though, is because of the #rightwing trying to justify ‘that’ symbol. If I see one of them try to pay their “respects” I will lose my bottle.
They are seriously pissing me off. One moment their trying to justify “that” symbol, and then the next they are saying what a disgrace the younger generation is for not “boot licking” Winston Churchill. I’m serious, they keep saying “What, would they have preferred the other guy to win”. Which they didn’t say at all.
Winston Churchill was so beloved, that after the War, they voted him out. He was not a nice man. And they’re all acting like Churchill fought the Nazis on his own. An estimated 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 people died during World War II. Churchill did not win the War, the young men and women, some animals won it.
Anyways, Remembrance Day is actually about World War 1, it still pisses me off. There were 20 million deaths and 21 million wounded. The total number of deaths includes 9.7 million military personnel and about 10 million civilians.
I found out recently that Germany choose to use white poppies instead of the red. It seems they feel that the white represents true remembrance, rather than the red, that represents bloodshed. I think both are valid.
