Share Your World – 09/07/2020

I have decided to go with the Muggles questions this week. I just liked them better,lol

Melanie’s Muggle Questions:

I’m very short on time today (Sunday) so I’m borrowing from Rory and Sandmanjazz to fill the questions today:

Do our fears start with our DNA?  (Credit to Rory)

I think so. I have this joke, that my sane side is thanks to my mum, and my crazier side is due to my Dad’s. It’s my mum’s side, that keeps my Dad’s inherited crazy side, sane,lol

If you could have your hair any colour for 24 hours, what colour would you choose?  (Credit to Sandmanjazz)

When do you think a person gets old?  (Credit to Rory)

I am very much of the thinking that you’re as old as you feel. Wait…Is that right? Some days I feel old, and then other days I feel younger than my age, then some other days I feel exactly my age.

GRATITUDE SECTION  (as always this is optional)

Please feel free to write about an uplifting moment in your life this week!

I know that I’m posting this on September 11th. However, considering the current state of US affairs. With the Covid 19 deaths, now at least triple, if not more than the deaths on the 11th. I’m grateful your still here to read my blog. It’s means your safe, America seems really scary right now!

Phobia

phobia
noun
  1. an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.
    “she suffered from a phobia about birds”

Personally, I have a fear of squid and octopuses. They are way to smart, and they can get in the tiniest of spaces.

I don’t want you to go into detail, writing about your phobia’s and fear. After the last couple of years though, I think people “forget” what phobia actually means. Phobia’s tend to make us do “crazy things” and Trump Supporters and Transphobic people are certainly full of them.

I’ve started to find that if someone, anyone, starts to say illogical things. Generally have some kind of phobia. It can be fear of change, fear of the unknown, fear of things they don’t understand.
Remember that when you think you’re having a conversation and that becomes…weird…

Every time they write or speak…They expose themselves more and more…

Questions:

What song always gets you out on the dance floor?

Boney M. – Rasputin
Actually all of Boney M’s songs

What’s your favorite sleeping position?

When I can, I love to sleep on my tummy. Either with my arms under my tummy (usually in Winter), or (usually in summer) my arms above my head.

If you could snap your fingers and instantly make the world better, what would you do?

Well, I’d stop the TERFs for one (I really have to stop interacting with them, they are dumb! Especially that ones that it’s okay for black lesbians to discriminate Hint, I don’t give a damn about your skin colour, when you are hurting people). I would make people just stop illogically fearing so much!

What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done, and why did you do it?

I have not yet, done the scariest thing I need to do for myself. I have not been on a plane yet, with all my newly “acquired” anxiety issues. Being trapped on a plane, with all my issues. Is the height of scary for me. I think once I’ve been on a plane, and it all goes fine (which it will). That’ll be great!


Gratitude Moment (optional)

Please feel free to share something uplifting from your life!  

Gratitude-and-Appreciation

When I got made at some transphobic people on Twitter. One of my friends said to me “IStandWithLauren”, and that made me cry. There have just suddenly popped up all these transphobes, especially during Pride Month. It feels like there are so many more of them, then us.

Help!…What do I do?

I just wanted to say that I have not told anyone else about how I’m feeling right now. Mainly because I’ve never really dealt with this kind of a situation before. I wanted to write this here first to see what you all think.

I swear this is how I honestly really feel.

I feel a little paranoid, but too me anyways, there is a genuine fear of one of my ex-friends. Her last message to me basically consisted of her accusing me of treating her badly the last couple of years, which isn’t true. I was the only to stand up against her abusive boyfriend. One of the things she said as well though that’s stuck in my mind, in her last message to me. Were her comments that said “Even though I know you don’t wish me the same, I hope you and your family are safe and have a good new year”.

It struck me for a couple of reasons:

  • Once again, I am nothing like that. I don’t even wish my abusive ex’s ill-will.
  • Second, I had literally just sent her a card, at Christmas, saying I wish her a safe new year.

It’s made me realise how truly delusional she is.

Even though we live in completely different states. She still has family and best friends here (all my ex-friends) and you can get deals under $100 quiet easily to travel by plane very easily between our states. I genuinely fear her and her boyfriend, because of this. I feel paranoid even thinking it, but it’s a true fear and I do want to talk to someone, maybe my Mum and family about it. Just to tell them not to interact with her (if she does contact them…Though I doubt it).

 

You’d better stop!

Ladies! Listen Up!

What is it lately with the ladies? Every time I see a women come forward about their experiences with assault. The majority of people who attack these people after they have come forward…are women?

What is up with that?!

I feel lately that I’ve been posting this in a lot of these “women” comments. I’m sure some of you have seen this:

Art Exhibit Powerfully Answers the question “What were you wearing?”

Too break it down. The Exhibit shows the clothes of women (not sure if there are guys in the exhibit) who were raped and what they were wearing at the time. You’ll probably find that the majority of the time it’s by a friend or someone you know, and you’re not wearing anything sexy at all. All the women I know, that’s exactly what happened. I think only one was raped by someone she didn’t know, but she was wearing a school uniform.

So what’s up ladies, why the hating? I think most of my readers don’t think this way, but I would love to know why other women attack other women and ask the question “What were you wearing? See the twitter feed below to see what I mean: (Will warn you first…Trump supporters here). You’ll probably notice that most of the “attackers” ARE women.

I just recently got into an argument with a lot of women who were standing up for Aziz Anir…Now I believe he didn’t realise that the woman was uncomfortable, but it was absolutely shocking to me how many women were saying “She could have just left”. Do these woman know nothing at all? The thing that were making me saddest about the comments are that men are finally getting it. Maybe just maybe if women weren’t so fearful of being killed…They could just have the strength to leave.

Men are killing thousands of women a year for saying No

Things I’ve taken for Granted

17. Things I have taken for granted.

Oh gosh, where do I even start with this one? Do I start from the beginning of my life, or do I start with random thoughts I have about taking things for granted. Do I write about what I’ve taken for granted in the last week?

When I was younger I took for granted that everybody would just “like me”. Not even because I was spoiled in anyways or was a spoiled child, but just simply because I liked everybody else. So surely, that’s just the way the world worked? UNTIL I got to Year 6 when I first experience bullying and I had no idea how to cope. The worse part of it was one of my bullies was someone who had been my best friend, just a couple of years beforehand. You know something though, a part of that “naivety” has still stayed with me (being friends with everyone). Unless you give me a reason to “hate you” I will consider us “friends”. Even if you date one of my friends and they break up, if I’ve gotten on well with that ex-partner, I still consider them a “friend”. Unless they hurt my friend.

I think that I took being a kid for granted, just that freedom that can comes with being a child. Just being able to fob things off, not having many responsibilities, seeing the innocence in basically everything. It’s like that saying “Why do we want to grow up so fast?”.

I think what I’ve taken most for granted though, is just feeling safe. I used to feel safe all the time and I never realise what a plus I had it. I heard a great saying “We have learned our rights, but not the responsibility”. We talk about freedom of speech, free to be who we are, but at the same time, people with so much hate in their hearts, talk about having the same rights. Those hateful people make me fear more than anything, because they fear things that are basically made up in their minds. For example, there’s a Facebook page called “Ban Sharia Law in Australia” …. Except it is banned and very unlikely to ever become law in Australia, unless in some sort of alternate reality.

Dictionary Meaning

*Now I have putting this post off for a very long time, been debating whether to post or not…But I felt like it needed to be said. I genuinely see a worrying trend starting to happen*

The dictionary term of racism is as follows:

racism
ˈreɪsɪz(ə)m/
noun
 
  1. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    “theories of racism”
    • prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
      “a programme to combat racism”
      I read this and not in one single term or meaning of racism ANYWHERE in the whole entire world does it say anywhere that racism only occurs in one group of colour of people? It does not matter what you “think” this is the facts of the case. There is no mention that racism occurs in only one colour of people. So why do everywhere do I read, it’s not racist if one colour is racist towards another because that person has experienced more racism than the other person? Bad English?
      No if you’re racist, you’re racist. What else is it?
      I know this is not my usual happy-go-lucky post. I am just starting to find it really disturbing though how someone can say they are not racist because the other person doesn’t “understand” but the comments and the hatred, while spewing hatred towards another colour, it feels very segregated. It disturbs me on a level I can’t explain.

      Racism is Racism and Hatred is Hatred, it knows no colour.

    I get that I don’t get what it’s like to be of another colour, but I do get fear and I get hatred. I don’t get going backwards and turning into something you hate and doing the exact same things as something you hate. I guess it’s like the situation with a bully, a lot of the times a bully is a bully because they themselves, have been bullied. I just want to understand I guess.

    I do get how putting people into boxes can lead to bloodshed and something much worse than opening up to communication and trying to understand. Let me in, let me understand what it’s like. I love people of all backgrounds, I know lot’s of people from different backgrounds. I’ve grown up with a lot of different backgrounds and I don’t understand racist people. Understanding our differences, it’s the only way we can understand what makes this world tick, what makes it wonderful.

    When has putting ourselves into boxes and categories and “they’re not us” mentality…EVER…worked?

Literary Fears

There is a website that I just LOVE called “The Reading Room” It is an amazing site that has good reviews, recommendations, featured lists/themes, podcasts…You name it!

I was scrolling through their site, as one does, and I came across this really funny article “9 irrational fears we can blame on books” It was really funny because they very last one was about Apples because of the poisoned apple in Snow White and I just personally thought it was hilarious because when I was younger, I lived in fear of red apples,lol … You know, because I am Snow White,lol

What is your literary fear? (Be warned, the very first picture on here is of the spider from Harry Potter…So, if you are scared of spiders! Be Warned!)
