Common Sense…Coming back?

I saw all these news article at different times, and was going to write them individually. However, I decided to do it, in one post. Lets face it, I am preaching to the converted. It was so lovely to read these articles. I’m going to write a little about each one though.

A psychiatry researcher who taught his students depression was caused by a ‘chemical imbalance’ in the brain says everything he thought he knew about SSRIs is wrong (msn.com)

This was so interesting to read, I was ready that the majority of it would be all anti-anxiety/depression is bad. It’s all bad. It’s not. It’s a really well thought out written article. The researcher just wrote about how they didn’t really work for him. Coming off of them helped him feel better, and he wrote more about to look outside the western medication. Which is fine with me. He did say, that they do work for some people, just not for him.

Jon Stewart Nails Arkansas AG On Ban Of Gender-Affirming Care For Trans Youth (msn.com)

Jon Stewart tackles transgender rights on the season premiere of “The Problem with Jon Stewart” – LGBTQ Nation

Do I need to say that much about the two article above.

The Next ‘Karen’ Who Makes a Racist 911 Call Might Get Arrested (msn.com)

I was so happy to hear this. I have no idea how that was not a crime? Surely that would be wasting police time? Is it just an American thing? Did the police just not care? Something needed to happen and change in that situation.

What should be banned

Last week I wrote a post about what is being banned in America. This week I have decided to write a little bit about what should be banned in America, lol.

Georgia conservatives are purging voter rolls with challenges allowed under GOP-passed law

If you have to cheat to get more votes, that should be a sign. So voter suppression, gerrymandering shouldn’t even be things. There is no logical or common sense reason, too me, to ban things that make it harder for people to vote. IF, you believe in yourself. It doesn’t make common sense to have anything in place or thought to make it harder for the people to vote.

Common sense, coming back?

I know this might be a little presumptuous of me. But is common sense coming back, even if little bits and drabs?

Two good things happen the other, the other was too late to write about by the time it happened, the post had already gone out. The second thing that ended my day well the other day was. A group sued our, Australia’s, Federal Government and all the State Government, except for South Australia, interesting enough.

The group was suing because they were saying that the COVID vaccines, the masks and the lockdowns were “unconstitutional”. Well, they lost, and now they have to cover the Governments, Federal and State legal fees.

It just seems like a little bit is coming back, well at least in Australia. America it seems what state it is and the UK, well hopefully, the Tories will be gone soon. When you take yourself off of “social” media, the world actually seems a little bit sane. Take yourself away from the celebrity tabloid. Yesterday, as an example, it was supposed to be the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. All the entertainment “media” were talking about Meghan. It’s becoming an obsession for them, like Princess Di. I listened to the radio instead. As much as I don’t really like “celebrating” death. It was actually quiet nice.

I don’t remember where I was when she died, which was the question they asked on the radio. Do you remember?

I’m missing you

This isn’t necessarily about a person or passed on animal/pet baby.

Over the last couple of years, things that I didn’t even realise people were about. Haven’t just proven they are about, but also, go the horrible extreme, of making me want to literally throw up.

I started to think about this, when a couple of people I’m friends with, had to end friendships over the Depp thing. Because it wasn’t just that they took Depp’s side, it was more that they admitted to knowing Depp IS an abuser, but they thought Heard deserved it. And I have people in my life, who I think, because of their attitudes over the last couple of years. I don’t trust, that that’s exactly what they’re thinking too.

It’s pretty disturbing.

I think of the fact that I’ve “lost” family members over their transphobia and Toryism.

I think of the facts, that people/family I used to have fun with and had huge respect for. I don’t trust them anymore. Not with their COVID misinformation. Not with their not believing the mental health of Meghan Markle.

I miss things like: kindness, respect, common sense … and honestly … people just thinking, instead of reacting. I miss people understanding the difference between an opinion and a fact.

And I would blame social media, but they’re all adults. With people like me (haha) in their family.

Controversial Opinion!

Do you have an controversial opnion? Well here is one of mine and I would love to hear your thoughts about it!

Trigger topic/warning: Rape

In the UK since (I think 2003ish?) they created a Law, which meant that women can’t be convicted of rape. Which lacks all common sense, because women rape and in, fact, since 2003, women in the UK, have been charged with it.

Anyway, my topic has nothing to do with that specific Law, rather the notion that that Law, and transphobic people believe, that women can’t rape. Now, my topic is really going to ask, do you consider what I’m about to write, is it rape or not.

I used to have a friend who is obsessed with babies. So much so, she now has (I believe) 6 kids and half of them don’t know who their father.

This is where my controversial opinion comes in.

Her first child knows who his father is. I believe though, she realised she had made a “mistake” by doing this. She even gave her first born the same name as the father’s surname, so the child would have her last name instead. The father’s surname is a first name scenario, so you know like: John or Peter or William.

The next three kids don’t know who their fathers are. Too me, what she did is borderline rape. Because she went into those situations without telling those guys that she was literally doing it to get pregnant. If she had, I doubt any of them would have consented to have sex with her.

She didn’t get their consent and took it away.

Respect

I am just going to start off this post with saying I lost a LOT of respect for a LOT of people over Harry and Meghan Markle. I generally don’t make comments I don’t know a lot about. Except in cases of bigotry, cause quiet frankly any bigots obsession’s with any bigotry tells me all I NEED to know about them.

Like, without a doubt in my mind, we can all say that Trump and Rowling have a narcissism issue. I actually called her a raging sociopathic narcissist the other day, after I listed everything she’s done, or rather NOT done, for women, to a transphobic person, lol. I actually got really depressed writing that list, she really is a terrible person, whose been able to hide behind her writing. I’m going to write about it, but then that should be my last Rowling specific post, unless she apologise’s.

What has annoyed me a lot about the whole H&M situation though, is those same people, have not said a word about Andrew. You know, the sex trafficking “Prince” who can’t sweat. Some of these same people don’t even know that he lost all his titles, and not willingly, unlike Harry.

How can these people not see how they are the problem?

It’s Pride Month in the UK. And currently more and more people are dropping out of the Tory’s UK Government “It’s safe to be me” conference. Especially AFTER the EHRC ( and after months of wasting time with banning conversion therapy) Will ban it, but only if trans people are still forced to participate in conversion therapy. But you know it’s totally safe to be you in the UK.

You can have a say here (until the 4th of Feb).

HOW CAN I SHARE MY THOUGHTS?

Under the current Tory Government, so far this has happened.

  • The current Tory party, like that actual party.
  • The UK now being described that same AS unfriendly LGBTQIA places: such as Hungary, North Korea and the Ukraine.
  • Most Tories voted AGAINST (including previous EHRC “chair” Lis Truss) feeding the children of the UK. After the Tories COVID stuff ups.
  • Brexit…Just like the whole of Brexit (which Liz Truss is now part of that disaster).

One of the things that I am very thankful for in Australia, we’ve had our states leaders really taking care of each of their own states. Although our state leader has now made a huge stuff up, because he listened to his Federal Leader, instead of being proud of the hard work that South Australians have put in. Generally Australia did well, because we DIDN’T listen to our current Federal Leader, Scummo.

I honestly don’t know how he even got in, in the first place. He’s a sales man, not a leader of a Country. I don’t know how so many Australians voted him in. Personally, I blame QLD, lol.

#BanConversionTherapy

Why transphobia?

It’s simple, just like all bigotries and all hate. It’s just allowed and people don’t care enough. It’s not really complicated, lol

As examples, the BBC has become extremely anti-trans, as well we as the Tory Government, the Charity Commission and OFM. Just recently the Times in the UK had to do two retractions where they accused trans women of raping more people than cis males. As well as a report about how “women can’t be charged with rape in the UK”, when they can. Twitter does literally nothing, as well as Facebook. And I’ve seen people on here with large, loud and powerful platforms simply look over it.

The US Republicans have literally used Rowlings own words to create anti-trans Laws. But you know, Rowling is having no impact. In fact, the current UK Tory Government keeps increasing the “discussion” time to ban conversion therapy. MOST people want it banned outright, but they’re waiting for an excuse to make sure they can have a loop hole with trans people.

The majority of women support trans women, but you wouldn’t know that when you listen to media, and watch people with the power to stop, not stopping it.

And if I see you NOT being an Ally. I’m coming for you, and your little dog too, and I am going to keep your dog, haha

Now I am not big into the big conspiracy theories. There have been rumours that a lot of the leads of transphobe’s are racists too. All this current transphobia, happened around the time that BLM and of George Floyds death, and then I remembered yeah. There were a lot of BLM marches, in the UK especially, where a lot of transphobes were confronting black cis woman and the white women were trying to shout them down about trans people.

Gender critical’ activists with ‘I heart JK Rowling’ banner mock Black Lives Matter protesters in ugly confrontation

‘Gender critical’ activists brand Black Lives Matter supporters ‘misogynists’ and tell them to ‘f**k off’.

I am not even going to get into Rowling’s anti-semantic and her own lazy racism, it’s all there for everyone to see. So again, it’s not ever just ONE bigotry. There was always something else there. A lot of TERF’s, as an example, hate sex workers and surrogacy. One, they don’t want to make it safer for the world’s oldest profession, they just keep having a go at the WOMEN who are sex workers, instead of the people around them. Two, even though, especially in the western world, a lot of women CHOOSE to be surrogates, TERFs hate it.

I’m not giving in to the conspiracy, it just that you cannot be a bigot without being a bigot somewhere else as well. Although transphobic people will SAY that they’re against Johnson, Trump, right wingers Christian fundaments. Show me a transphobe and I WILL show you someone who wants to control other’s bodies. It’s just what they do.

We are in 2021, right?

As the year starts to close, I was wondering, after a completely weird day at work. Receiving all these texts from my Dad, and my mum was telling me how utterly horrid these customers were being.

It had me thinking. Anyone else think that this year in particular that, the sense of entitlement and narcissism from others has just risen, this year in particular?

I know that I am a hopeless positive person, but I really thought with Trump gone, things would turn to normal and be more calm. It’s just not turning out that way.

The UK is becoming more anti-lgbt, racist, xenophobic, the UK’s current Tory Government CONSTANTLY flouts and breaks the rules/laws…and honestly, just blatantly so.

The US is becoming more anti-abortion and anti-women having control over their own bodies, or people in general. And those mostly on the Right and the GOP, absolutely are abusing the Constitution.

And in Australia, well, our Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, keeps running away. Currently our opposition leader Anthony Albanese is in charge. While our PM went on holidays, and the Deputy got caught up in America with COVID. Just before he left, our PM said this, about masks.

Mr Morrison said Australians didn’t need to be told what to do, likening mask-wearing to sun safety.

“In the same way as we go into the summer season, people will be slapping on the hat and slapping on the sunscreen,” he said.

“There’s no rule or requirement to do that, but it is strongly recommended health advice. It’s in the same category.”

Anthony Albanese criticises Scott Morrison for Covid-19 blame shifting

Our Prime Minister compared wearing masks, to getting sunburn. You don’t have to be an Australia, too understand that absurdity. Also though, it should be a rule or requirement to wear sunscreen, in Australia. I actually don’t think that’d be such a bad rule, lol. In schools, you have to a hat on during Summer or you can’t go and play.

Trump supporters have turned on Trump, haha. The really funny thing, personally. Trump is not even likely to be saying to people to get vaccinated, to help them. Someone pointed out that he’s doing it because the vaccines, that are like 99% mostly saving people. Were starting to be given out during his Presidency, so NOW he wants to take credit for “saving” people.

It should go without saying…

If you don’t talk to the people actually involved, why are you speaking for them?

Too me, it seems, if you don’t talk to trans people about trans issues, maybe don’t talk or make decisions about them. If you don’t talk to sex workers, don’t talk or make decisions about them.

I’m looking at you UK!

But this does apply generally.

I will write about a example though of when you should sort of debate with yourself, who you should listen to within these groups too.

Debbie Hayton is a trans woman, or not, depending on whether you are a “TRA” or a TERF or Gender Critical. Debbie is a trans woman though, who frequently (meaning all the time) sides with transphobic people. One thing she has said is “trans people are not marginalised, and I am trans!”. Now the problem with this, is one, Debbie is a late tranisitioner. Which in itself is not a problem, plenty of people transition later in life. But the reason for Hayton transitioning later? As she admitted herself, not because she didn’t know she was trans, but to protect her children from bullies.

Now…

If being trans isn’t marginalised, why do you (commendably) need to protect your children?

Like, if there’s no problem with transitioning … Surely you can just do it whenever you want? You wouldn’t need to worry about protecting your children. Take POC, a lot of POC parents have to talk to their children about how to be when they’re confronted by the police.

That’s just common sense, right?

Hayton is one example, by what I mean when I say, actually LISTEN.

When you think about it…

I hate starting off the week with a sort of, not depressing type blog, but just a like “this should just be common sense” type post. I also can’t let this topic go.

There is a MP called Jackie Doyle, I am pretty sure that she’s Scottish. Who voted against Same Sex marriage, who of course is loved by any TERF, Gender Critical or LGB Alliance member. Yet, they make excuses for her voting against same sex marriage, and I quote “She was more in favour of civil partnership, because a few same sex people told her that they didn’t want same sex marriage, because marriage is regressive”

Okay, but that’s not a excuse to vote no still. Same Sex marriage was on the table, not civil partnership…Which since, has been on the table, because you can’t really have one without the other, that would make sense. Not all straight people want marriage these days, so should the rest of straight couples not be able to get married now?

Basically these transphobic people are excusing homophobia, because this MP is also transphobic.

When you consider the majority of first world countries voted YES on same sex marriage, and got it voted through. There’s not really a good enough reason to have voted “no”. Especially if you are actually for same sex partnerships to begin with, or even for civil partnership. If you are for same sex people being together and legally recognised as a couple, why would you vote no?

Why wouldn’t you just vote yes, and then work on civil partnership?

Do you know what I mean?

I got blocked by the person, by the way. Especially when I pointed out why wouldn’t you just vote yes on same sex marriage and then work on civil partnership, which would just naturally come with it. It’s SO simple, I managed to write it all in one tweet, lol
