Blockity block, block…

Lately, I’ve started following Trump supporters. Especially the ones that just write really either obviously stupid lies or the ones…well…they’re the only ones really.

(Just letting you know that one paragraph seems to have made my writing go small).

I decided to do this, because whenever I’d get into a conversation, either because of the time difference. I’d come on the next day and it was fruitless to continue the conversation as something else always happened. Or it would just get lost altogether.

So I started to follow them, and it’s been such a change. Mainly because every-time they’d bring up something, I would ask and always politely, to prove it. Even just one thing. As examples, one was talking about how Trump was more unifying than Biden. I would then use an example of Biden unifying people, and ask them to now prove, with an example, where Trump has been unifying. I get block. They would say “You just don’t like Trump” and instead of getting defensive, I know have a list of things Trump was doing even BEFORE being President to show “Of course I don’t like him”. New York, his home town doesn’t even like him”. Then I would ask them to show me an example of him doing something I should like, I get blocked.

The most recent one has been this “woman” accused us of being racist. Because after we found that BLM activist Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau had been murdered and her murderer had been caught. We stopped hashtagging her name. So we clearly didn’t care about black lives. She was trying to tell us that her murder had everything to do with BLM, because she was an blm activist and she went missing during a BLM. She also called us fucktards, how could we not see the connection. As I pointed out to her. Her MURDER had nothing to do with BLM, as far as we know yet. It sounds like Aaron Glee (her murderer) probably knew her already. It sounded more like a domestic violence situation. I also said her murderer HAD been caught. What more else could we do?

I also pointed out that BLM, has nothing to do with general “murder” as such. BLM is to do with the alarming rate of violence against POC, from white people, and more importantly by people SUPPOSED to protect POC. It has NOTHING to do with “domestic” murder. I feel horrible for writing it as “domestic murder”.

I got blocked,lol. I have to admit, she really did annoy me and I called her a fucktard back. Because she KNOWS BLM has nothing to do with “domestic” murder. Which is probably why I got blocked, because I called her out her obvious bullshit.

It was really frustrating me when none of these “people” could ever back themselves up.

Meet Sarah…

SarahJRossiter

 

So its okay for to call people she doesn’t know sluts and then see you next Tuesday…But can’t even STAND being called out on it! Sarah here, decided it was okay to call Alyssa Milano a “See You Next Tuesday”, because she doesn’t like her. I called her out on it…Blocked. I did get in though with a good old…One of her posts said “It starts with a C” after someone called her a slut. I got in though, just before she blocked me “Classy…It’s classy, isn’t it Sarah…Everything you don’t represent, something you don’t understand anything about. Everything someone with the little girls maturity mindset, like you don’t understand. What kind of grown up calls another woman a “slut” or a “cunt” because you don’t like them? Only teenage girls do that. And not all teenage girls, but definitely little girls like you.”

Blocked…lol

Though, I saw a tweet, that made me feel better. “It’s not that Trump supporters actually think Trump is smart or kind or a good person. It’s that he represents them, and makes their hatred and fear and bigotry feel like it’s okay to be like that. Hey if the POTUS can do it, why can’t I?”

Mute

Recently I have discovered the “Mute” button on Twitter and i haven’t been happier!

I decided that the type of people I was going to mute where the type of people who are actually well-known, but that’s it. They actually have no real influence on the community and/or they just repeat what they’ve been told. For example, I have recently muted Tomi Lahren. It has been glorious!

I started to think why am I even listening to her? What does Tomi Lahren have to offer, anybody. Other than to parrot what she’s been told? I don’t think she’s done an ounce of research into anything and literally repeats the insults that Trump says. She can’t even come up with her own, that’s how dumb she is! So why am I still listening to her? The “breaking point” for me was when she called Former President Jimmy Carter “jealous” of Trump.

Jealous! Of Trump!

Jealous of what?

So that’s when I went “For the love of God, why are any of us listening to her?” and pressed that mute button…I’m telling you it has started to make things a lot easier for me on Twitter. So I started to do it, to anyone who is nothing more than a talking box.

So some people I’ve muted and feel the better for it are:

Anne Coulter: The last thing I saw her write was that she was going to enjoy ruining Soccer for everyone. As a lot pointed out to her. How? That the only way she could ruin soccer was by playing in the team.

Piers Morgan

Why am I writing this?

I think that it’s an important message to get out there. Too just mute people who are basically nothing. The comments that were being made towards Anne Coulter, were completely on track. How on EARTH can she ruin soccer for people? Other than playing in it. I feel like we give too much power to these nothingness type people. Pier Morgan is just a morning show host. He’s not actually doing anything, he states his opinion…a lot.

They are not leaders of countries, hell, some of them are only Leaders of their own little World. Apart from people who already think their particular way, they don’t really DO anything.

Mute, Block, Delete

This is something that I feel is necessary today. It is SO easy to mute, block and then delete when someone says something that we don’t like, but should we? I got very frustrated over the weekend, relating to the Tina Fey SNL skit. It was pretty cringe worthy, but there were a lot of people saying “Why…It’s just a satire”…But then these people kept coming up against other white people saying “Well you’re wrong, it’s offensive and stop arguing about it” (which they weren’t, they were trying to ask “Why”).

This frustrated me for various reasons.

  1. Most of the people who thought it was satire, were white and didn’t understand, genuinely seem to want to understand why it was offensive, but they were just met with “You’re wrong”. Ironically by other white people.
  2. Then when the person wanted to discuss it, they just kept being told “No, you’re wrong and you’re trying to argue”…Argue what though, I don’t know. Since these other people wouldn’t explain WHY it wasn’t good satire.
  3. Then they’d brag about how they had either muted or blocked the person? Blocked what exactly? They hadn’t said anything?!
  4. If they understood the problem and it is a really simple issue, then it would have been an easy thing to explain. I doubt then they understood what the problem actually is.

How can people understand something if we just mute, block and delete them? There are things that are just not pleasant to talk about, I get that, but if you have CHOSEN to get yourself involved. You are not suddenly the better person ore more progressive by telling someone they’re wrong and then muting/blocking them? If you can’t have a discussion about the issue, maybe you should just admit you don’t understand the situation? If they become aggressive or are clearly trying to troll, THEN mute, block and delete.

That old age question…The rules of being single?

Ha! I finally found another topic to write about under my “Single in a Small city” category. For those who don’t know there is a lot of irony in this particular category. I was 30, I had been broken up with someone for about a month and so decided to write about being single in a small town. Well the “irony” about it is that roughly a little over another month later, when I started this category, I started dating someone….And the rest…as they say…is history.

I felt it was a little wrong about talking about being single, when I wasn’t anymore. It was also funny because usually when I’ve broken up with someone, I’m usually would stay single for about a year. It’s not a rule, it’s just something that always seemed to happen to me, so to be dating someone a couple of months later was a huge shock for me.

The other problem with being a small city is that a lot of the time, it’s a Kevin Bacon six degrees situation. The person you like or are dating or are interested in, even when you think you’re dating someone completely different from your ex. There is usually someone they know who will know your ex in some form or another. ┬áSo although there came a time when I refused to date anyone from the same group as my ex, after the appalling way I was treated by the “good guys”. Every ex since, has known someone from my ex’s group, who knows my ex…Complicated, isn’t it?lol … So you can have a rule about not dating anyone from your old friendship groups with a ex that you share, but it is so hard to do that here.

Do you have any rules, readers? When you’re single, do you not date for a set amount of time…Or are your rules more like “guidelines”?

Bad Librarian!

I am feeling so bad! I call myself “Lolsys Library” but then I have read hardly any books this year! I was looking back at some of my older posts and I’ve been trying to read two books at the same time and it’s just not been happening for me this year.

Have you ever had moments like that? Where you’ve realised that you’re not reading and you really feel like you should. I have been trying to make other things happen this year, that I have completely neglected my reading. I have just been unable to make myself read. Which I don’t think that you should, make yourself read I mean. Otherwise I find that you just end up hating it.

I have reading block! Any suggestions how you’ve gotten yourself out of a funk? I am definitely one of those people who overthinks and then tell myself to stop thinking, but then worry I’m not thinking enough.

Yargh!

Brain Block

I’ve had such an interesting weekend, in that I did a bit of everything this week…Had a bit of a party, did a bit of retail therapy and had lunch with the family which then turned into dinner as we helped my cousin start moving into her new house.

So now my brain is completely blocked with something to actually write this morning. I have so many big things that could possibly be around the corner and I don’t know if they’re going to happen or not…Don’t you just hate that feeling!lol

Blog Block!

I have been really struggling to find, at least, anything interesting to blog about today! So what better way to try unblock myself than to talk about Blog Block!

What do you like to do to unblock yourselves? In the writing sense of course! Or creative block!

I like to listen to music, but when I have a block and I determined to write, I have to listen to a certain type of music. Usually it’ll be something Celtic or “mystical” I love Enya. Taking me to another place, even if it’s just in my mind, can really get my creative juices flowing. Some people think it’s weird that because I love to play games, I don’t just play some computer games to unblock myself? It is weird, I don’t use games to unblock my writers block because when I play games, my brain tends to be thinking differently when I play games. I think playing games is a different kind of relaxation. Sometimes it’s not relaxing to play computer games at all, it can be intense!

One of my favourite performers of all time and she is great when I really need my “mind to get away” (if that makes sense) is Enya (you might all know her best from the Lord of the Rings as the singer of “May it Be”. My very favourite of hers though and one I really love to listen to when I am in a particular bind is “Wild Child”.
