Support Pride!

These are the artists that #Target in America, have now taken off the shelves. Target is a multi million dollar company and their only solution is to take away products from small #LGBT businesses?

I would love for allies to start using #Pride as a time to help small #LGBT businesses, rather than buy a $2 dollar flag that was made in China, for underpaid retail staff to sell. We could never bankrupt Target but we CAN absolutely help small businesses thrive!

Buy from here too!

How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?

I actually did this last night, on Twitter. After two days “arguing” with white people about even though being part of a cult is horrible and makes you do and say horrible things. When you say something horrific like celebrating the murder of three black people, one a child. You do not make excuses and have to have people drag an apology out of you. That’s not an apology and if the last time you, as white person, made racists comments about George Floyd. You are not then cured and absolved because you transitioned. That’s not how it works.

Then of course you’ve got the transphobes who think they have the “right to offend”. I mean, you do, I guess, but people also have the right to debate that. You are not being silenced when you are on every single media outlet, uncontested. And you are not on the right of History when the leaders of the most corrupt and stupidest political parties, back you up.

Then of course there was the whole Rowling calling trans people and the activist the actual Nazis.

There was a moment where I was going “I hope when I log back on, I’m banned” and then I was…

I don’t NEED to be here. I have got plenty of outlets and I have got plenty of ways of keeping in touch with others.

For the moment, I am keeping Twitter up, but only as a way to let people contact me until I get rid of Twitter for good. There are some people, who for the moment, don’t have else where to go. I will be encouraging them and supporting them to leave Twitter.

Seriously, I am getting my root canal finally done later today, and what if I got hit by a bus or a car. My last days on earth would have been me fighting with grown ups, about how to be better grown ups. As much I have this weird/odd need to fight for everyone. I shouldn’t be fighting other adults on how to be, at the very least, sensible human beings. That’s not my job. I highly doubt that’s my lot in my life.

I literally called someone beneath me, because they said that trans gender people were having a “gender” gap year. This person actually chose’s to follow me. So I let them have it, lol.

Think about it…

Sometimes, Twitter can have it’s sensible moments, or just give us a laugh…Here are a couple:

And then every now and then, something comes along…

This will make you think!

Who is someone “famous” who you absolutely adore, but can’t watch anything they’re in. Or at least a lot of what they’re in?

Sir David Attenborough’s birthday was this week, and since his name was trending I thought he had died and I got upset. It was just his birthday though.

I adore the man, will cry when he dies. Think he is amazing and does amazing things for the planet, and only two weeks younger than Queen Elizabeth II.

But, I can’t watch about 95% of his shows, because an animal will ALWAYS die in it. The only ones I have been able to watch is one about extinct animals, being “brought back to life”.

Do you adore someone like that? How weird!lol

Do you have a quote you live your life by or think of often?

I usually have a few. There’s two though that have a big impact on myself, daily

To thine own self be true

it is a line from act 1 scene 3 of Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. It is spoken by King Claudius’ chief minister, Polonius as part of a speech where he is giving his son, Laertes, his blessing and advice on how to behave whilst at university

“There’s some good in the world, Mr Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.”

J. R. R. Tolkien

What I like about both of them, and I think why I like them both so much, is that they are two completely different types of quotes. One is too take care of yourself, by being honest and true with yourself, and the other is about reminding one of others. But they’re kind of the same too. They’re both about being kind and taking care, just one is about self and the other is about others.

It really is quiet simple to be kind. It is really hard to remind oneself of that. Its so easy to make a snark or mean comment, its takes real strength to be kind even when you want to be really, really, really…mean, lol.

This also a powerful quote

“I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.”

Robin Williams

It sucks being a nice person sometimes, lol

I don’t care =P Pt 2

This is a bit more serious than the last one.

I don’t know if it’s just because my mental health has taken a hit lately. Or that a lack of sleep just makes me care less. Who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind again.

I read recently an article saying that the Agatha Christie Foundation were going to do a Rohald Dahl and change things in the book. I don’t know what, because I didn’t read the article, because I just don’t care.

I’ve read some of the books and seen at least all the television Miss Marples and David Suchett Hercule Poirot, I don’t personally care for the movies. They are often different from one another anyway.

I look at the world around me, and I’m like. For myself, it’s just not a big fish to fry. The total banning of books is, but a book production company changing a few words, just is not at the moment.

Tolkien Reading Day

The date of the 25th of March was chosen as the date on which the Ring was destroyed, completing Frodo’s quest and vanquishing Sauron.

How to Celebrate Tolkien Reading Day

Celebrating Tolkien Reading Day can be as simple as the name implies–pick up a book, story, or poem by the author and simply get to reading! Consider other ideas for making the day into something special.

Did you know that? … Tolkien’s friend, C. S. Lewis nominated Tolkien for a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1961, however, one of the members of the Nobel jury wrote that Tolkien’s work “has not in any way measured up to storytelling of the highest quality.”

Can you believe that!!!

Trigger Warning : Suicide

So I an deactivating my Twitter in about 24 hours. I just came across this topic, that out of all, really just made me mentally tired.

When people don’t want to take responsibility for their hate, and help to create a suicidal person even more so. You have to be a sociopath. If you want to get involved with complete strangers, be an adult and take some responsibility. Brianna Gheys murderers were charged with a hate crime and now it’s coming out that Eden Knight was sent back to Saudi Arabi, and forcibly made to detransition.

Not a single TERF has shown any compassion for either girl.

I saw a post though, where a TERF was saying that people placing the blame on them, was manipulative and emotional abuse. And they don’t have to put up with it. I told them they do and then blocked them. I couldn’t even be bothered dealing with them. What also made me angry was a twit saying because she choose not to commit suicide, that means it’s a choice.

There are 8 billion people on this planet.

If you have a trigger about suicide, now is a good time to turn away.

Suicide rates increased 30% between 2000–2018, and declined in 2019 and 2020. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States,3 with 45,979 deaths in 2020. This is about one death every 11 minutes.3 The number of people who think about or attempt suicide is even higher. In 2020, an estimated 12.2 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.2 million planned a suicide attempt, and 1.2 million attempted suicide.4

Facts About Suicide – The CDC

  • 8.6 Australians die every day by suicide. That’s more than double the road toll (ABS, 2022).
  • 75% of those who take their own life are male (ABS, 2022).
  • An unknown number of Australians attempt suicide every year, with some estimates suggesting this figure may be over 65,000 (Slade et al, 2009).

Data and statistics – Lifeline, Australia

  • 115 people die by suicide in the UK every week – with 75% of those deaths being male (ONS)
  • 1 in 5 people have suicidal thoughts (NHS Digital)
  • 1 in 14 people self-harm (NHS Digital)
  • 1 in 15 people attempt suicide (NHS Digital)

When I was younger…so much younger than today. I did have a dark thought at one moment in time. I was very angry and very alone in the world. Luckily for me, I had a dog. S I can sit here and say that I made a choice to not do anything. But was I being suicidal? Probably not. Because I know choosing suicide is not a choice. I was an overly emotional teenager. However, its why we do have to be careful with them. Listen to them, properly.

Suicide is not a choice.

I know it’s a horrible thing to talk/write about. But we have to…not “normalise” it, but, more be open to having difficult conversations with loved ones. If you don’t know how, be honest and go get help together.

Again, there are 8 billion people on this planet. You “choosing” to not commit suicide, isn’t the same for the other 8 billion people on this planet.

The Originals

I will give Twitter credit for one thing, you get a lot of blog post ideas! Hahahaha … Not in always in a good way mind you!

I am kind of starting to wondering when as adults, we started to get upset about about fictional or made up characters?

I think I have about maybe 10-15 plushies scattered around the house. I used to feel that these made me childish. I felt I wasn’t mature enough because of my plushies. I also a few large figurines. They are mostly of kicking butt fictional women characters. I’ll post them under the post.

The reason behind my post today though is because though, for me, it is getting really annoying and so frustrating to constantly see people complain about fictional characters, and I mean in terms of the where the fictional character actually came from and started as. The two I’m writing about today ae Gomez Addams and April O’Neil.

The reason being that people seem upset that the current and April do not represent the original characters. Except they are completely wrong. April O’Neill was originally a mixed race woman, not the white woman from the cartoons and below is how the original Gomez Addams actually looked.

I get a lot of people would prefer the suave “Gomez”, but this is the original Gomez. For me Luis Guzmán, looks a lot him. I have yet to watch it, but I haven’t heard any complain about him.

It’s getting really tiresome to explain to so called “adults” that one, these are FICTIONAL CHARACTERS and if you don’t like how it’s done, you do it then. Two, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it, you’re not a child. It’s one of the great things about being an adult, you generally don’t have to do anything you don’t want too. There are lot of things you have to do as an adult to survive, work being one one of them. However, you don’t have to watch anything you don’t want too.

Thirdly and maybe the biggest point, a lot of people who do complain about this stuff are often, wrong.

As I was writing this another idiot was talking about how Transformers had never once addressed the issue of pronouns or sexuality. They were going on about how these newest creations were like invaders who destroying their property. Then they were quickly proven wrong. In both how idiotic they sounded and how Transformers has been inclusive in the past.

Liking a cartoon, anime, magna…Whatever, doesn’t make you an expert. Its fictional most importantly, and I admit I love when they can link fictional things together, like how they do it with Dr Who a lot of the time. At the end of the day, it’s just fiction. The most important part of fiction is that it takes you away. Not that it’s 100% accurate every single time.
