Read and Listen.

This post may not go exactly what you might suspect it’s going to. This is about people who react…mostly over react to people. People who are over reacting instead of reading and thinking first. People who read a paper and suddenly are experts. You know the type, people who read a paper that’s 100% for them and not reading one that disagrees.

This has a lot to do with vaccinations, but I feel it can be applied to a lot in life. I am for vaccinations, but I am not for pro-vaccinators *not a word* who become belligerent towards people who aren’t even saying no vaccinations. There is someone I follow on Instagram who had a reaction to a vaccination and now has a chronic illness. She knows how rare this is. She has never EVER said don’t get vaccinated, but she gets literally vile comments because she says “research” first…And I think she’s right. The other people who have gotten chronic illnesses say so too.

Quiet frankly I’m going to listen to them over someone who read a paper saying they’re wrong.

I’m a Librarian…I can guarantee there’s a paper saying that it can happen. I have actually seen them myself. Because I also believe that Pharmacies and Drug companies are more about money than people’s actual well-being.

As was the case in Ireland and a lot of Europe:

Narcolepsy link to glaxo vaccine poses challenge of fda

Now this happened because people aka the Government and Drug companies tried to push this vaccine quickly without much research. The reason for this particular vaccine/drug was to help people with the “bird flu”. Now parents are suing the Government, because the Government will not help these parents and families out.

I’m all for vaccinations and I will get any future children theirs as well. Just because though someone tells me to do research (which you really should be doing for nearly all things in life). Does not make them anti…If that makes sense? In fact this person I follow actually pointed out that a)She’s has never actually said to not get them and b)Why people are assuming she still doesn’t get them herself? Which is a good point. That’s why sometimes take a deep breath, and read what your reading. I honestly believe that people don’t read anymore. They pick out keywords they WANT to read and go from there. The job that I’m in, I’ve learnt to read (I always have) but as time as gone on where I work. It’s becoming more obvious how little people read.

I actually had an incident this morning, where a student came in on the wrong day for an entrance type test. The email said Thursday the 6th, but they said the person on the phone said the 6th of Friday, so that’s why they missed the test. So, even though three of out the four things were about 6th (which is the Thursday) they blamed someone else for saying Friday, even though the person on the phone said the 6th too.

Probably not the best way to finish off a Friday. I just have to write about this sham of a show!

The “experts” are probably the worst experts of any experts that I have ever seen. A little story to start explaining what kind of “experts” these people are. A couple of years ago when my now ex best friend had broken up with her abusive boyfriend for the third time and she was considering getting back together with him for a fourth. Now, she told us that the therapist she was seeing had told her “Well he clearly loves you, because he keeps coming back”. So she took this as “Well I’m going to take him back then”.

At the time I honestly thought that my ex-friend had to be lying, what kind of therapist would say something like that? Well now these “experts” have made me believe that the Therapist did actually say that, and that my friend wasn’t lying. I kind of wonder what my ex-friend says about this shows, because if it’s positive, then she’s a damn hypocrite. Anyways,

These experts are so horrible, I can’t even explain it. Too watch these “couples” abuse and bully and torment each other, and THEN the “experts” for SOME god only knows what reasons pick on the actual victims…It’s beyond angry. Watching what was happening, was making me literally shake with angry at the experts. For the first time in my life, I actually put a complaint in about a television show.

ABUSE AND BULLYING ARE NOT TELEVISION SHOWS!

Too lose friends because I stood up to the person bullying/abusing them and telling my ex-friends they can do and deserve better. Too watch these “experts” gaslight and get upset at the victims for stupidity. For example, one of the brides, is I think, a complete sociopath. When the “couple” were talking with the “experts” for some reason they just let the bride demean, bully and outright mentally abuse the Groom and THEN tell him off for him calling the Bride a “C” word. Now I don’t like that word, but this Bride totally is! If you looked up the word “C” in the dictionary, there would be her picture. This bride is the type of “woman” who gives the rest of us a VERY bad name. These experts give us women a VERY bad name, when they let her off. If it was reversed, there would be outrage from these “experts”.

It was interesting to watch the comments on Twitter as well though, as both Feminists and MRA (Men’s Right Activists) agreed that this Bride is a “C”, for some reason though the “experts” are the only ones who didn’t seem to see it.

The week after the experts then started (for some reason) to seemingly be gas-lighting ANOTHER bride, who was the victim. The bride wanted to leave, and the “experts” made her feel bad for it! I could not believe it! Now I know that this show is probably filmed a little in advance, but DAMN!

What truly irritates me about this show the most though. The first season, came out around the time that Australia was voting to make gay marriage, legal. So you have these bigots going around saying…

Yet, a show is coming into people’s living rooms every night. Where people don’t know who they are “marrying”, and then I don’t think a single couple have even worked out to date. You have “experts” allowing grown adults to abuse and bully, each other on television, which is coming into peoples livings room. If one partner doesn’t want to leave, then their  “lucky” other half gets to stay, even if they don’t want? Every single night Monday-Thursday for at least an hour.

Oscars 2019

Every year I ask myself “Why don’t I actually watch the Oscars” I love watching the Fashions and the whole red carpet, and if I like the Host or know someone is performing that I like, I will flick back and forth.

(that twirl though!)

Every year AFTER the Awards I remember why…The outrage by viewers after. Some I can completely understand (like Green Book winning “Best Movie”…Why? That horrible acceptance speech as well, and just the general type ‘scandal’ around that movie)

It’s all “Well I didn’t like the movie, so it shouldn’t have won that”. It is well known most of the Award shows don’t actually run with what the public like. It is also well known that most of the people who run the award seasons and decides who win, are usually old white guys,lol….Guaranteed it is changing and I was honestly happy with all the awards Black Panther and Bohemian Rhapsody won. I also learnt a lot about Black Panther and how the clothing, in particular (costumes) represented Africa.

 

 

Never Assume

This quote feels appropriate for this week…Especially with everything that has been in the internet from Harambe to the Johnny Depp, Amber Heard situation. Just try to remember people we don’t know everything…I can’t even begin to mention how many “celebrities” have suddenly become Gorilla ‘experts’. If you are going to listen to anyone, please listen to the actual experts in this field!
