I am a straight person, so there’s a lot I do not feel comfortable writing/talking about. This I do.
I think one of the most frustrating things about people’s perception, as soon as they hear gay or LGBT+ THEY automatically think sex. They then put that one every other person.
There is a lot of proof/facts, that people are just born gay, or are born trans. Just like, some of us are born straight. There is no “gene” or social conditioning, you just are, or you are not. You can’t pass it on, like brown eyes, or blonde hair, or your size.
This is the point of my blog post. There ARE trans kids and there ARE gay kids. Even so, that doesn’t make these children “sexual” anymore than the heterosexual kids, that’s shoved down our throats all the time. Think nearly every single Disney movie. Daddy/Daughter Religious dances.
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”.
speak to a GP and ask for a referral to an abortion service – the GP should refer you to another doctor if he or she has any objections to abortion
contact asexual health clinic (sometimes called family planning or GUM (genitourinary medicine) clinics) and ask for a referral to an abortion service
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.
On November 2, 1969, Craig Rodwell, his partner Fred Sargeant, Ellen Broidy, and Linda Rhodes proposed the first pride march to be held in New York City by way of a resolution at the Eastern Regional Conference of Homophile Organizations (ERCHO) meeting in Philadelphia. Unfortunately Fred Sargeant has become VERY transphobic since. In fact, becoming allied with a member of the police force that used to beat up gay people. If you look through though, it seems that Sargeant just HAPPENED to be dating someone who was part of that first four. All the others, did OTHER things.
Craig L. Rodwell was an American gay rights activist known for founding the Oscar Wilde Memorial Bookshop on November 24, 1967, the first bookstore devoted to gay and lesbian authors, and as the prime mover for the creation of the New York City pride demonstration. Back in New York, Rodwell hosted meetings in his apartment and at his bookstore. Sargeant just happened to be dating the guy at the time.
Ellen Briody was one the first Lesbian’s to start the name of radfems. Although that’s clearly a negative term now. When I went and looked her up. She actually seems excited that people are becoming more intersectional.
“”If people can keep this going, the revolution that failed to materialize in 1970 — in spite of the Black power movement, the anti-war movement, the LGBT movement, the women’s movement — might just come into being now,” she added. “I feel more optimistic than I have in a long time.”
Even when talking about those early years, she only mentions Fred once. It seems to be that Craig Rodwell, was actually the force behind the two men.
Sadly, I couldn’t find much about Linda Rhodes, she was dating Ellen Briody. There just doesn’t seem much on her.
The first Pride event was organised by Brenda Howard “The Mother of Pride” a bisexual activist, in New York City on the 28th of June 1970. The first march was called the Christopher Street Liberation Day March (which is the name of the road the Stonewall Inn is on) and the event had both an element of celebration and protest.
Additionally, Howard along with the bisexual activist Robert A. Martin (aka Donny the Punk) and gay activist L. Craig Schoonmaker are credited with popularizing the word “Pride” to describe these festivities. Bisexual activist Tom Limoncelli later stated, “The next time someone asks you why LGBT Pride marches exist or why [LGBT] Pride Month is June tell them ‘A bisexual woman named Brenda Howard thought it should be.'”
Someone said it better than myself. Who threw the first brick at Stonewall? Legend says that Sylvia Rivera or Marsha P. Johnson did. But what people don’t realize is that Sylvia and Marsha did something much more important then toss a brick. They created a sustainable organization where there had been none before, the worlds first trans organization, Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries, which was a committee of Gay Liberation Front, formed during the GLF occupation of NYU’s Weinstein Hall. It was Gay Liberation Front’s LGBT Community Center that became STAR’S first home for homeless trans people. And Marsha and Sylvia did it without public funds, training, or programs.
In May 1970, Gary Alinder and fellow members of the activist group the Berkeley Gay Liberation Front attended — or, as Alinder later recounted, “invaded” — the National Convention of the American Psychiatric Association in San Francisco. Too demand that homosexuality no longer be seen as an “mental illness”.
While most of the Founders of Stonewall in the US and the UK, are not transphobic. There always has to be ONE, doesn’t there? lol. Of course it’s the white man.
There is two reasons why I writing about this topic.
One, I am now content with the FACT that Depp has pretty much only got other celebrities, a lot of them abusive themselves, on his side. While Heard has got the experts. Including the woman who coined the term DARVO. I don’t care if Robert Downey Jr had a face time with Depp to congratulate Depp. Jr literally went to comfort Chris Pratt when he was “named” the worst Chris (he totally is by the way). Apparently it made Pratt cry, nawwww, the poor baby. His support when Brie Larson (she plays Captain Marvel) received death and rape threats, for being a “difficult” woman. Not a word.
And then I saw this…
I don’t like the Kardashians/Jenner, and I am FURIOUS!
A lot of people are like “it’s” just a dress get over it. It’s not JUST a dress though, is it? Less than a month after she sang in that dress, Monroe was dead.
Even in DEATH Monroe was used for publicity, and Kim Kardashian disrespected Marilyn Monroe. It’s not “just” a dress.
I am happy to say that while I might enjoy an actor, if they turn out too be rotten. That’s it for me. I don’t make excuses, I don’t try to play with the truth. I’m like that’s it. Like three of my biggest crushes in the world are Orlando Bloom, Idris Elba, Matt Smith and Tom Hiddleston. So far they have been pretty “okay” lol. OB, did say a few years ago about JD, but again, that was a few years ago and who knows what he actually thinks now. If he comes out NOW and says the same things, that’s it.
I got plenty of other crushes. I’d be sad, but I wouldn’t make excuses. Do you know what I mean?
Like Dave Chappelle, up until recently, I would have called a comedy genius, but now…I’m like, he’s past it…SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much.
As for Rowan Atkinsons comments about “cancel culture” NO, Rowan Atkinson, if we wanted to be offended all the time, we would listen to politicians all the time. I don’t know what is happening in the land of “celebrity” but it’s definitely losing it’s allure.
And what was with Jennifer Aniston the other day? She was talking about how fed up she is with “celebrity” that’s famous for doing nothing. She mentioned Paris Hilton, which maybe fair enough. Depending how you look at things. She also mentioned Monica Lewinsky. Now, I don’t think for a second that Monica Lewinsky even wanted to be a “celebrity”. But Miss Monica Lewinsky is an EXTREMELY good spoke person when it comes to anti-bullying. Like if you actually PAY ATTENTION, Monica Lewinsky has actually done more for society than Jennifer Anniston. Who has contributed a hair style? Sitting there allowing her female friends to drag Angelina Jolie through the mud, and NOT her ex-husband?
Which do you think is better for you brain? Too multi-task or not too multi task.
I’m not going to answer outright, I’m going to write this out. Please while you read this, stay in the moment and read this post. Do not do anything else, just read.
I was watching television program on the ABC the other day called “Our Brain”. It was absolutely fascinating.
I wanted to write about one specific thing that I found really interesting from the documentary. Multi tasking.
When I listened to it, it made a lot of sense.
The term multi tasking was from computers. Now clearly, our brains are not computers. As humans, therefore we are not actually multi tasking. What we are actually doing is called swish tasking. We’re not focusing on one task, we’re going back and forth between tasks. Which ultimately, stresses our brain out.
There is a huge difference between focusing and swishing around.
Like it says in the documentary “Multi tasking doesn’t exist”.
I watched “The Meg” over the weekend, so when I saw this, I thought “cool” lol.
World Oceans Day is celebrated on 8 June 2022. Each year on World Oceans Day we raise awareness about ending overfishing and protecting our oceans.
This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, will highlight the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean. This is the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live.
The Seven Seas include the Arctic, North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, and Southern oceans. I am first generation Australia, so we are pretty surrounded by water, haha.
I have an up and down relationship with the Ocean in particular, when I was little I lived really close to the beach, basically across the road from it. My Dad freaked out about the mortgage, and didn’t want pay for one, so we lost a house that is now worth OVER a millions dollars … spewing …
Anyway, letting that go…Just … I once had this “I am Queen of the Ocean relationship” until I was dunked four times in a row by it. Basically, I nearly drowned. Never really trusted it again, a few years ago now though. I went “swimming” with the dolphins. You go out on a boat, into the ocean and you snorkel, hold onto with a rope. You can see the dolphins in their natural habit.
It was cool, but also the weirdest feeling. It felt, weirdly, claustrophobic. Even though we were in the Ocean, it felt claustrophobic. It was a really odd feeling, lol. Completely amazing, but odd, lol
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.
I am strongly thinking about closing my social media’s for a while. This isn’t a “look at me” post. Today, we learnt that even when an abuser is verified as an abuser, victims are STILL not safe. They are not allowed to speak about it. Especially when people want to sleep with the abuser. You know sometimes I really do think that America, deserves Trump.
And now all of Depp’s friends that have been accused of abuse, are suing their victims. People like Trump Jr, like Chris De’lia who was accused of harassing minors, are crowing and celebrating.
If Depp wanted to talk about his abuse, go for it. But I hope he gets sued for everything. America is NOT safe. And a warning, if you lie to my face about me saying Heard is not an abuser, you will get cut out. Heard is an abuser. Here’s the thing. Heard is not the one stopping Depp, the person in power here, from talking about himself.
The ONLY comfort I’ve taken from this is that all the legal analyst’s have said that Jury was wrong, and that they either didn’t care or didn’t look at the evidence.
America, you are mother fucking screwed!
So on top of Marilyn Manson suing his victims … “”Hundreds” of domestic violence survivors have already retracted victim statements & pulled out from court cases as a result of watching the trial”
So PLEASE stop telling people “she did it too” No one has said she didn’t, that’s NOT the point.
The donkey told the tiger, “The grass is blue.”
The tiger replied, “No, the grass is green .”
The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion.
As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming, ′′Your Highness, isn’t it true that the grass is blue?”
The lion replied, “If you believe it is true, the grass is blue.”
The donkey rushed forward and continued, “The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him.”
The king then declared, ′′The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence.”
The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating, ′′The grass is blue, the grass is blue…”
The tiger asked the lion, “Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?”
The lion replied, ′′You’ve known and seen the grass is green.”
The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?”
The lion replied, “That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because 𝙞𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖 𝙗𝙧𝙖𝙫𝙚❟ 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙚 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙜𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙖𝙣 𝙖𝙨𝙨 and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!”
The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn’t care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.
I know that transphobes are being intentionally stupid, but sometimes.
Transphobic people are all “We’re feminists, because we don’t want males in our sports”. That isn’t feminism, that’s patriarchy. The patriarchy is all about keeping people into set boxes. Feminism is about equality, seriously, look up the definitions.
Feminism recognise’s that not all are put neatly into little boxes. It’s equality for all. Take trans athletes, as an example. People are NOT going “I’m a man/women” and then the very day they’re competing in high level athletics. Especially at the high level competitions, there are rules for trans people. They have to have a certain level of testosterone or estrogen before they’re allowed to compete, things like that.
You cannot just declare you’re the opposite sex and then the next day you’re in the Olympics in that category, it just doesn’t work like that.
There are trans people, intersex people, non-binary people. There are women who can give birth, who don’t want children, women who can’t give birth, women who want to be an surrogate. Women who adopt. Gay people, masculine looking women, feminine looking men. Like other’s have said better than me, the patriarchy likes to reduce people from human beings to nothing but bodies. This is what most bigotries do. It’s what racists, misogynists, misandrists and of course, transphobia.
Basically, every bigotry is for the patriarchy, anti-bigot is feminism, haha.
