Thursday Theories – Those stinkin “fans”

*Warning…Long Post*

I am feeling all sorts of out of sorts folks, lol. I started yesterday morning really well. I somehow managed to see that a lot of people were giving LGB “Alliance” a go at. It was truly wonderful too see. People saying things like to their supporters, hmmm…I wonder why Labor didn’t want LGB, but the Tories did? It was glorious!

The day ended also really happily. I live in a main city in Australia, but we are probably the smallest…Maybe Tasmania…But for such a small main city, and being the “City of Churches” we are quiet progressive. So progressive in fact, you know what I saw, front and center in my local library?

In between though…

I tire of humans, I really do. I’ve already some try to ruin LinkedIn, and the only place I feel any “sanity” is on mynameisTravies instagram page. Don’t animals just make everything better?! I was so happy to see Juno Dawson’s book, I nearly cried in the Library. So I am writing to them.

I tire of humans, I really do. All day, it was stupid people talking about people they don’t know, who don’t know they’re alive. Who wouldn’t care if they lived or die, celebrating celebrities making the world worse, OR, putting people in harms way…but all with “love”, of course.

Then as I’m trying to make these people “see sense” I know, I know…One I saw an article saying that Rowling had made a swiping threat at Emma Watson. Like someone tell her SHUT UP! But then I came to a realisation, it’s the freaking fans faults!

All of this is their fault. They’re the ones winding people up, instead of speaking common sense. Imaging saying to someone whose winding someone with bi-polar “Oh, I am so glad you told him off”. No, no no no…Bi polar is a serious disease and it is not just a “mood swing”. I should know, I was attacked by someone with bi-polar, and I’ve always had a twinge of fear since. I can’t help it. I get over it though. But you do not mess someone about who has it. Then people are agreeing that being called transphobic, is the exact same thing as Salman Rushdie being stabbed…

I am sitting there and it this hits me. I’m not sure if I’ve written about this before. But I have said, maybe written before, about this. In order to have any kind of big “presence” on social media. You need to have a strong “skin” and be able to get over your own ego. You need to be able to go “I am not perfect, and that’s okay”

There are SO few people who can do it, at all. I can’t even actually think of one person off the top of my head. Maybe Selena Gomez? As I mean, she’s been through a lot and a lot of it on social media. But, unlike a lot of them, takes breaks from social media. A lot these “celebrities” don’t know when to stop. Especially the Kardashians, I don’t know what they’re going to do, when it all dies down and it’s starting too. But I don’t care, because good riddance of bad rubbish.

The celebrities having literally thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands telling them more than any of us will get in a life time. That no matter how wrong, or how bad a celebrity is. They will always have hundreds of thousands of people telling them how wonderful and perfect they are one in post. It must be SUCH an ego boost! You are not going to convince me that that is not powerful.

But we don’t have to do that. We’re adults. These people will never know us. There in lies this sickness. Too sit there and trying to impress people who don’t know whether your alive or dead, you gotta have self esteem issues.

It is a sickness and it’s a sad one. Hmmm, maybe I should look into becoming a therapist, ha!

There are approx 7.753 billion (2020) people on earth, and every single of them has an opinion. I’m sure newborns would, lol
