I hear a lot about this “cancel culture”, which considering Rowling still filming her third film, Cosby got out and is suing people and Kevin Spacey is in a movie…Soooooo, who has even been “cancelled” again? No such thing as far as I’m concerned. However, with Epstein’s death, now THAT’S being cancelled!
Also, I hate hearing “cancel culture” as it seems to be mainly a white person thing. As usual white people can’t even come up with actually cancelling someone.
However, this is not a post to get into the mind or the theories about “cancel culture” (which isn’t even a real thing).
What do I do when I “cancel” someone?
You might notice that I don’t always mention names. As an example, there’s a certain ex-“reality” tv family, who name I don’t mention. The moment you do, you will find them coming up everywhere! I don’t search for them on FB, Twitter, Instagram. While I can’t always escape them. I definitely don’t get them as much on my feed as other people.
Say, I know someone who really loves HP (I could be talking about HP Sauce, you don’t know). May want something, or I see something that I know they would really love. I will only buy now, if I can get it secondhand. Some things I have found that, she who-shall-not-be-named, doesn’t actually own the rights to certain products anyway.
As an example, I lost all respect for Stephen Fry this year. So now I don’t watch QI, or anything with him in it. However, I LOVE QI, and although Sandy was my favourite before I lost respect for Fry. If someone wants to watch like QI with Fry in it, I still will, with not too much “gruff”. After all, Fry is not the only person on there.
Or take the recent death of Sean Lock, has made transphobic comments. Personally, I thought he was a okay comedian, to “dry” for myself, he was pretty sexist too. Instead of bringing these up, I just said nothing. No need to really. Was he a terrible human being? Maybe not. I didn’t know the guy personally, which was another reason. By the way these didn’t come up just after his death, people had mentioned these things, even over a decade ago. http://lookslikesatire.blogspot.com/2008/04/worst-show-ever.html
I’ve been streaming for about a month now and in that time.
Seen two pen 15’s
Been hit on numerous times, lost “followers” when they realised that I have a partner.
Luckily, I am a old woman and have been dealing with these kind of things for nearly my whole life. I still remember this one time, I was walking to the bus from walk, during the day, by myself. This guy on a bike rides by me and says “You’ve got really big boobs”. Like, how am I supposed to deal with that?
Now, I’m nearly 40, it just annoys me. I do let them know. I also always ask them “How many times has that even worked”? Young and old, it just pisses me off. Who is telling these guys, that that’s the way to a woman’s heart?
I am expecting to get a lot of hate and a lot of unfollowing with this one. But I feel, and especially in light of recent events, it needs to be said.
If you totally hate me after this post, know that I am sleeping and “suffering” from side affect of the vaccine, lol
It’s time to put Sept 11 2001 in the past. Let this be the last year we “honour”.
We just essentially ended a 20 year war, that did nothing in the end. Because that’s not how you “win”. Violence only begets violence.
When you think about Sept 11th, it happens every day in countries like Afghanistan, Iraq.
Yes, it was the first attack by ISIS on Western soil. It hasn’t been the last time, and personally, I just feel like every time it comes up, everyone says to them that we’ll fight with a “Christian God”.
Well that “Christian God” has just been used as a excuse to ban abortions in Texas (despite God doing these himself). That Christian God, is why ISIS hate Westerns.
What have we learnt by going in and invading? Not much really. Well, one that was the beginning of the end for a lot of politicians. As THE PEOPLE DID NOT WANT TO GO TO WAR IN THE FIRST PLACE.
When will us Westerners LEARN that you cannot just storm in on old cultures and make them “better” aka make more them Western. IT’S NEVER WORKED!
It’s starting to come out now that when the allies went over, they decided to give them US style helicopters and weapons, and then … didn’t train them, that was over seven years ago. So while yes, the US left weapons in Afghanistan. The Taliban don’t really know how to use them, and they haven’t been trained in how to use them and upkeep. The Afghan National Army have been more trained in how to use them, and have enveloped some of the Taliban in it too. But why would you leave ANY weapons?

This is probably one of the last times I am going to talk about this. Because all too often “people” call being trans a “ideology”. This same people are normally always from a Religion … which makes me
Also, it is very EASY and simple to find out about trans History. It’s not that difficult. So either, you don’t want to know because you love being a bigot, or you just really don’t care what trans people have to go through.
Literally the first time I wanted to learn, so I went to Google and put in trans, History.
There is no excuse under the sun, to NOT go and have a look. IF you care, if you don’t care. Then yeah, maybe MTG is a reliable “source” Also though…No.
So here as some Facts:
We’ll start with where the term comes from.
1897 – Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld founds the first gay liberation organization in Germany: the Scientific Humanitarian Committee.
1907 – Magnus Hirschfeld is introduced to Harry Benjamin.
1910 – Magnus Hirschfeld coins the terms ‘transvestite’ and ‘transsexual’.
1919 – Magnus Hirschfeld becomes one of sexology’s founding fathers when he opens the world’s first sexological institute, the Institute for Sexual Science in Berlin. It becomes the first clinic to serve transgender people on a regular basis.
1949 – Harry Benjamin begins to treat transgender individuals in San Francisco with hormones.
1)The Gala (Sumerian: 𒍑𒆪 gala, Akkadian: kalû) were priests of the Sumerian goddessInanna. They made up a significant number of the personnel of both temples and palaces, the central institutions of Mesopotamian city states. These were thought in modern times to have been individuals with neither male nor female gender identities. In addition, some gala priests were women.
2) Because the galli castrated themselves and wore women’s clothing, accessories and makeup, some modern scholars have interpreted them as transgender.[Firmicus Maternus said “they say they are not men… they want to pass as women.” He elaborated, “Animated by some sort of reverential feeling, they actually have made this element [air] into a woman [Caelestis, the goddess]. For, because air is an intermediary between sea and sky, they honor it through priests who have womanish voices.”
4) Today, at least half a million hijras live in India and another half million in Bangladesh, legally recognized as a third gender, and many trans people are accepted in Thailand. In Arabia, khanith today (like earlier mukhannathun) fulfill a third gender role attested since the 600s. In Africa, many societies have traditional roles for trans women and trans men, some of which survive in the modern era amid recent widespread hostility. In the Americas prior to European colonization, as well as in some contemporary North American Indigenous cultures, there are social and ceremonial roles for third gender people, or those whose gender expression transforms, such as the Navajonádleehi or the Zunilhamana.
Trans people have literally been in EVERY SINGLE CULTURE. Including those who knew nothing about the other cultures. Does that REALLY sound a ideology?Its not like Christianity, where certain Cultures and certain races of people embraced it and then ENFORCED it on others. In NO culture though, have they even been close to the majority. Just like the LGB community, they are not the majority.
So to the Christians, and any other Religions that persecute and harass trans people. If your Gods makes no mistakes, why would YOU call trans people a mistake? Maybe trans people are here to TEACH YOU a lesson? For once, it might actually be about you,lol. But you’re learning all the wrong lessons.
It’s perfectly fine to not understand. What is not fine is to just dismiss trans people, despite trans people being around before your “perfect, who makes no mistakes” creator. Especially when you have all this information at your fingertips. There’s no excuse for bigotry in the day and age, it’s just lazy, quiet frankly.
The Science behind the Trans brain
Is actually quiet new. The Nazi’s actually burnt down the first ever LGBT Science center, and a lot of the research was burned with it. (See above).
Most of the investigation into the biological basis of transness has been in the field of neuroscience. Postmortem studies conducted by Dick Swaab of the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience suggested multiple differences in brain structure between transgender and cisgender individuals. These differences seem to indicate that transgender that transgender women and men have brain structures more similar to the brains of cisgender individuals of the same gender identity than cisgender individuals of the gender they were assigned at birth.
More recently, the field has moved from postmortem brain analysis to functional MRI studies. Cisgender men and women have previously been shown to have different brain areas engaged during a spatial-reasoning task. This research team found that both cisgender boys and transgender boys (assigned female at birth and on pubertal suppression therapy) had similar activation patterns during the task, compared to cisgender girls.
An individual should not need to justify their gender identity any more than someone would need to justify their eye color.

Summary: Some of the first biological evidence of the incongruence transgender individuals experience, because their brain indicates they are one sex and their body another, may have been found in estrogen receptor pathways in the brain of 30 transgender individuals.

Summary: Brain activity and structure in transgender adolescents more closely resembles the typical activation patterns of their desired gender, according to new research. The findings suggest that differences in brain function may occur early in development and that brain imaging may be a useful tool for earlier identification of transgenderism in young people.

As you can see, there is more to trans people than what MTG “opinion” of them is.
Do I have to do this again?
The only thing that’s new is the term “trans” itself, that doesn’t mean though they just didn’t exist before then.
… Being a white European in a country, that has been colonised and saying to other people who want to live in your white European colonised country. That they have to abide by OUR culture. Completely and utterly forgetting that if they want to abide by the actual cultural of that country, that means abiding by the culture of the Indigenous cultures that are still (luckily) there.
Also, how are they not adhering to the “Australian” culture? They’ve come from a foreign land, according to WS, they’re taking over…So again, exactly what the white Europeans did to the Aboriginal people. Refuse to learn the language (according to them) How many Aboriginal languages do they know? (The answer is none) And the Chinese are throwing money where they see problems, just like the white Europeans did to the Aboriginal people’s when they created welfare. They also want to stick to their own Religion, just like the white Europeans did and did not conform to the Aboriginals Stories, at all. These foreigners are very much adhering to Australian “Culture” by all accounts really.
Now this is a map showing which Aboriginal Tribe were in which areas. I have been trying to find one that I can actually read, lol.
My mum and I have right ole’ gossip and biotching session while we’re in the car. One thing she brought up was that she agrees that the PC Culture is over the top at the moment … BUT … BUT … it’s a very big BUT …
But it’s because the alt-right have taken to that level.
You take Alex Jones as a good example. Tries to go around smearing the names of parents who have lost children in the shootings,causing them to move nearly 7 times! They decided that they’ve had enough and he decides to sue them for HIS legal fees? Hey, dude! If you weren’t smearing people’s names you wouldn’t have those issues, would you…”genius”. It’s not even about attacking parents who lost children, it’s just going out of your way to smear anyone, causing them to have constantly move…Knowing FULL WELL what your supporters are doing.
Trump pretty much just handing over America to the Russians. Let alone those t-shirts that read “I’d choose a Russian over a Democrat”…Go live there then, if you think Russia is so fantastic! Why Russian anyway? The irony being of course, we all know that they couldn’t actually survive there.
Then there’s the sudden increase in African American…children…Having the police called on them by white folk. There is no way these people do not know about Tamir Rice. That even made the Australian news! I’ll have to find the video, but I heard this really good point made. Listen up racist white folk…When you make that call because of an “annoyance”, knowing full well about Tamir Rice. You are saying loud and “proud” that you, because of an “annoyance”, you are fully prepared to put that child’s life at risk. Simply because you’re “annoyed”.
I have been watching this new series on the ABC called “The Secret Life of Books”…and it is fantastic…I highly recommend that if you can watch it, do it! It seems appropriate that on World Book Day, I would talk about books today!
There are 11 stories all together under the Mabinogion, all come from Welsh. They are the earliest prose stories of the literature of Britain. The stories were compiled in the 12th–13th centuries from earlier oral traditions. The two main source manuscripts were created c. 1350–1410, as well as a few earlier fragments. These stories offer drama, philosophy, romance, tragedy, fantasy and humour, and were created by various narrators over time.
The stories of the Mabinogion are strongly believed to be the beginnings of the King Arthurian period.
