You ruin everything!

I have ruined myself to begin with. I have left my laptop at my partners. So the couple of next posts are all being done from my phone.

How annoying do you find it when bigotry takes over a beloved culture, belief system.

I am talking about the TERFs, maybe the most stupidest bigots out of all the bigots. They’ve ruined the suffragette and witch movements.

The reason why I call them the stupidest bigots, out of the bigots is because everything they say either a) makes no sense, b) they think changing names really changes what they stand for, while giving trans people a hard time about it and c) for a couple of months they have no problem with bigoted men making a name for them. After that couple of months they ALWAYS get mad at the men.

On top, the far right aren’t even being “shadowy”, there are front and center with the transphobia. Then these same people always act “surprised” when their heroes turn out to be the Right. And that’s it all “well clearly we’re not like them, we’re the left”.

TERFs, went from TERFs to Gender Critical’s (GC’s) to now “sex realist”. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve rolled my eyes.

Even when it’s women speaking out against them. They’ll keep insisting it’s men trying to silence them. Take Nottingham Council Library in the UK. They recently banned a talk by a TERF, which was a good move, since it would have been during Pride. The next day, they started a crowdfund to sue the council. Here’s the thing though: the members who banned the transphobic person are all women. Didn’t matter to the transphobes. Women are on councils these days.

That’s another thing, the TERFs are not fighting for women’s rights amongst Roe v Wade, they’re all blaming trans people! I have yet to see a transphobe actually fight for women for Roe v Wade. They keep saying really stupid things like “At least the Right know what a woman is” or the REAL classic “If we didn’t have to fight trans people, we could have been fighting to keep Roe v Wade”. Oh and that they don’t have to worry in the UK, because abortions are “free”.

Not quiet true…

In other words, you can’t just “rock up” in the UK, to have an abortion. And even then, in some areas, you need to speak with Doctors before you have an abortion, for them to sign off on one.

In Australia, it depends on your state and GP. With South Australia as the most recent to decriminalise abortions, with the changes starting on 7 July. (That’s my state…yay) That 7th of July 2022. So that is really recent.

But this is what I mean by TERFs ruining everything for not just trans people, but women, men and non-binary people too! They don’t even know their OWN countries rules.

They want to “claim” suffragettes and Witches, then they need to do the work. They have done nothing so far, except ignore the majority of cis women’s speech, and raise money to sue everyone (another Right wing thing). Just because the MSM/Murdoch and Right wing media are letting them speak (while ironically saying to us all that they’re being silenced, but you know, they’re nothing like the Right). Doesn’t mean they’re speaking for other women, they just simply are not.

Fandango’s Provocative Question #168

How do you feel about online anonymity? Do you believe that when people are hiding their real world identity, it encourages them to misbehave or to be offensive? Or does it allow people to reveal who they really are or possibly how they would choose to be and act all the time if they could?

I thought that I would have a crack at this one, because it is a huge topic right. Even Elon Musk is trying to back out of the Twitter deal since they wont really confirm how many Twitter accounts are in fact “real” and are not bots.

Personally I am very open type person, I have not had the experience of someone trying to steal my identity or anything like that, so I am sure that would change how I did things, if I did. I am pretty careful though. I don’t use my phone for banking, while I use different passwords to everything really. I have tricks in my head to remember which one is which.

Saying all of that though, I know a lot of the trans community who keep an online anonymity for really good reasons. At some point each of the big and out there trans accounts have all been doxed. They’ve had their work places rang, luckily most businesses are fine with them. There have been cases on out there cis trans ally accounts, who have had some big name TERFs show up to their places of work and they were harassed there.

But then, a lot of transphobic people, especially not the big names one, are also anon. For VERY different reasons though. I suspect that a lot of them know very well what they’re doing.

So it is a conundrum.

Imagination

I read an article over the article this weekend that Captain Kirk is now being seen as bi-sexual, which, honestly I don’t care that much about. But cool for that character. However, William Shatner, who played Captain Kirk said that it’s simply not true.

I get why people would want the actor who “made” that character too agree with them. Here’s the thing though, they’re an actor playing a part. It’s the problem I had with Dumbledore (from HP) Dumbledore became “gay” after a popular fan theory. There was actually no indication that Dumbledore was gay. Then in FB, there was apparently two lines that confirmed he was gay. That was it.

What Rowling did, was what is called “performative ally-ship”. Dumbledore can be gay if you want him to be gay. That’s what’s called imagination. It’s also fine if Dumbledore is not gay. It’s fine if Dumbledore is gay, straight, trans, of colour, religious, atheist. Just don’t make him gay, straight, trans, of colour, religious, atheist, to make a buck.

It’s it also fine that Shatner doesn’t want Capt Kirk to be bi. Capt Kirk can be bi-sexual for you though.

Do you all see where I’m getting at?

If Chris Pine wants to play a more bi-sexual Kirk, that is also fine. I have no idea about Pine’s views on Kirk. But again, Kirk is a fictional character.

Happy Birthday Shakespeare

Happy Birthday to the world’s best selling author! William Shakespeare!

William Shakespeare – Wikipedia

My favourite quote of ALL things Shakespeare is:

This above all: to thine own self be true, 

What is yours?

I never really got into Romeo and Juliet, funnily enough. My favourite Shakespeare play is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The most recent thing that I have learnt though. You can absolutely love Shakespeare, you can love his writings, his plays, his quotes. But don’t ever feel like you HAVE to sit down and watching a play. I recently read a really good “what not to do list”. One of them was, if you don’t want to see a Shakespeare, don’t. I was so happy to read that! I love watching my favourite actors and actresses do Shakespeare monologues. I have yet to see a whole Shakespeare play though.

Also, you HAVE to watch David Mitchells comedy show based on Shakespeare life. Upstart Crow

World Book and Copyright Day 2022

23 April is a symbolic date in world literature. It is the date on which several prominent authors, William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. This date was a natural choice for UNESCO’s General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone to access books.

What do you love the most about books?

I love just “going away” for a little bit. Somewhere that’s not real, somewhere my imagination can take me away for a little while. Where I can dream, but come back as soon as I want too. I don’t HAVE to travel to get where I want to, or come back from. I’m there and back again, a Hobbits tale, lol.

If you want to talk more books, come and chat on my Discord Book Channel! ❤ Happy Book Day.

Family Guy

This actually has nothing to really do with the series. There is an episode though where Peter gets his own theme music. Although I am hit and miss with some Family Guy episodes, I LOVE the idea of having my own theme songs.

(I apoligise as well, I didn’t have my laptop charger for about 24 hrs. Trying to catch up now).

Let’s use our imaginations, what would your different theme’s be? After all, we have different emotions and experiences. Is there a song that you play every single time that relates to a mood? Little note, my partner has hummed through every single song, lol.

Learning through the pain:

Screw You!lol

You are my beautiful my friends ❤ … “Rooting” for my friends

Just happy, lol

And not my final song, but for this post it is…

“Feeling It” =D

It’s not just for kids!

So there was a TERF, who was complaining about how Lego is not for adults, and anyone who does play with them, is probably a pervert and trying to groom.

You know what cracked me the most though? This account calls themselves the “Wild Woman Writing Club” and they think Lego is only for kids? Did you know some Lego sets can cost up too $500?! You know how I know, I’ve bought two of them for my partner. Are they trying to tell us that parents are buying $500 lego sets, just for kids?

This got us all talking about how not everything is for the kids.

For those who are relatively new to my blog, I buy teddy bears from a company called Charlie Bears. While, like Lego, you can buy them for kids. They are best suited for adults. Of course, you can all spend between $70-$500 for a teddy bear, for a kid. But they are best suited for adults.

Oh, colouring in books! I have a whole lot of them! I wouldn’t be without them. And I am always on the lookout for more!

So yeah, absolutely not everything is for just the kids!

I even have a couple of Barbies, lol … Mainly because though they can be useful sometimes in pictures and also…I mean, come on…a Barbie you can meditate with! I was SO disadvantaged as a child, lol It has a puppy that you can show the mood you’re feeling…I mean…COME ON!!!

You all MUST have something that you “play” with that can be for both children and adults?

#TDOV

March the 31st is Tran Days of Visibility!

During this week, on my Twitch Stream Channel. When I’ve been offline I’ve been hosting trans gender/sexual Twitch streamers that I follow.

Just be kind ya know? Like the entire LGBTQIA umbrella have fought their lives and for their rights. It’s tiring, just be kind. It’s really NOT that hard.

Let’s see

So when I went to write this post, I didn’t actually know what to write about. You see, I have a gazillion and one thoughts running through my head. Have you ever tried catching up with your thoughts, when you have a gazillion and one running through there at Superman speed!

I am also one of those people who can do three things and nothing all at once, but that’s a story for another day.

This is why I love blogging and wanting to get back into jotting down my thoughts and writings, when I cannot blog. Blogging, I can write a post like this and you all understand where I am coming from. I can write about all the thoughts that are running through my head, and not be able to write them all down at once, and you will all understand.

Too most people, well those who do not blog. I could write a whole heap of nothing, and they wouldn’t understand, you would all still understand.

Not that I’m saying this blog post is a whole bunch of nothing. It’s actually a lot of something.

Appreciation

Understanding

Gratitude
