World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization, as well as other related organizations. In 1948, the WHO held the First World Health Assembly. It is just a coincidence that I’ve started on a Health kick this week.
The US needs gun control … NOW
As of this moment, I am aware that the latest mass shooter is a trans MANS and not a trans woman. I am also very aware of how the right wing are trying to use this as some of sort of “proof” that trans extremist are an epidemic. In “fact”, they are such a epidemic the Right have been able to name all the trans and non-binary in all of one tweet. Even then, one of them wasn’t actually non-binary.
Now Right Wingers, type into ONE tweet all the male, mass shooters.
Of the more than 100 mass shootings that have happened in the United States in the last four decades, the vast majority have been carried out by men. – By Max Molski • Published March 27, 2023 • Updated on March 27, 2023 at 6:32 pm
Of the 141 U.S. mass killings since 1982, only six were carried out by women, according to data from Mother Jones. Two of those incidents saw women acting in partnership with a man.
The Secret Service analyzed 173 targeted attacks from 2016 to 2020 and found that 172 of the 180 attackers (95.6%) were male. Three more were transgender, assigned female at birth but known to identify as male at the time of their attacks.
I think it’s clear where the epidemic actually is.
What is also annoying too me is how many “it’s mental health that’s the problem. Here’s the thing. If the right were truly concerned, why do they keep blocking all the mental health help Bills/Laws? It also seems to be that a lot of anti-gun control crowd “believe” that other countries don’t have mentally ill people. When you’re trying to “talk” to those people, it’s impossible. You try to explain to them, all countries have mentally ill people. The difference between the US and the other countries, is that, the mentally ill people don’t have such easy access to guns.
I have no doubt in my mind that these mass shooters are not well people. Well people don’t generally try to kill a lot of other people. You don’t need to be Einstein to figure that one out.
You don’t need to be Einstein though to figure any of this out.
Two things can also be true at the same time. Like it’s a mental health and a gun problem, it’s just easier to do something about gun straight away.
Not only is this picture false. The picture is of Alana McLaughlin and they’re posting a screenshot from a right wing sock account.
WHY is there SUCH a disconnect with right wing “Christian” Republican’s, and the rest of the world? 2A Conservatives wont, and don’t go for it, because they would be at the top of that list…EVERY FREAKING SINGLE TIME. #GunControlNow Republicans don’t go for gun control, because they would be the first ones to lose their guns, and they KNOW it.
The next day…
I am currently on a sort of “holiday” from Twitter. My mental health is perfectly fine with it.
I came to realise that Twitter isn’t just “bad”, its not normal. Taking out ways to report child endangerment, some people just blatantly lie and misinformation runs rampant.The other day I wrote a list on here for nearly everything that Rowling has done, just to cis women alone. And it’s a lot people. Even after rebanning Ye and everything with AndrewTate, Musk STILL lets the worst of us back on there. Its not just bad, it’s not normal.
So, the day after I came to realise that I was making the right decision.
If you don’t wish to proceed further reading, I completely understand. One of the reason I detest Twitter,, is because when you come off of it, and go back to “real life”, everything’s relatively “fine” Depending on what it is, obviously. All the stuff happened the day after I went on “holiday”.
Hopefully this will be the last that I speak about these people.
So Rowling came out and said that she has never seen so much misogyny towards women as she has now. Well that’s total bullshit. One of her cult were recently at some protest and one of them had a sign that said “Sturgeon likes anal”. I suspect what Rowling actually means that she has never experienced such backlash as she is now. Which is not the same as misogyny. People not liking a woman, does not mean you’re a misogynist. Otherwise Rowling herself would be one.
Also, during Rowling’s life women weren’t able to get a divorce on their own. It wasn’t considered rape, if you were married. Both of these were changed during the 90’S…The 90S people! Marital rape is considered a form of domestic violence and has been illegal since 1992…1992. But one of the wild things is as while, in the UK women can’t be considered to have rape. Even though women have been charged with rape, and accessories to it.
But sure, people able to change their sex/gender on their personal documents is the problem here.
When I “left” to go on my “holiday”, people were having a problem with Harry talking about his number. It was utterly ridiculous, I managed to find plenty of books and films where they talk about that kind of stuff. I kept having to tell “adults” that the UK media splashed Harrys face across all sorts of media glamourising him going off to War. What, did the Taliban have no clue that Harry was fighting? Apart from anything, what Harry actually said was quiet different from what the media said.
Piers Morgan, the next day had the guy who killed Osama Bid Laden. You remember him? The LEADER of the Taliban? It was pretty funny really. The guy said things like “I wish he had killed more” “The Taliban aren’t going to like us less or more because of Harry”. It was clearly pissing Morgan.
Here’s what was bugging me, so Harry is “bad” for saying his number. But it’s not bad (and Piers thanked for him service as well) to have the guy who actually the Taliban leader on?
I know that a LOT of people hate Harry and Meghan, but, come on. That’s ridiculous.
Speaking of which, I FREAKING KNEW IT! It is mostly people who don’t like them, talking about them. You can blame the media as much as you want, it’s you talking about them. As for the book sales, well done to the Prince. I haven’t personally bought it and I don’t really plan on. I don’t really buy a lot of biographies, auto-biographies. I’ve only got two that I have read, and that was both of the Obama’s. People buy me them, but I am not really interested.
Lisa Marie Presley
That was a huge blow, I am sure, especially to Elvis fans. I was actually sad, she was pretty young. I became annoyed, when for some reason, the anti-vax people, blamed it on the vaccine. Twitter hasn’t gotten rid of any of it. Her family had a long History of heart problems. We don’t even know about her vaccine situation. Apparently they did it for both Kirstie Alley and Diamond, and I am sitting there thinking “Kirstie Alley was a Scientologist and Diamond was anti-vax”.
It was annoying how Lisa Marie has this long family history of heart issues and the anti-vax people are just getting to spread it around, with no interference from Twitter.
Be Beautiful You <3
I am concerned people, lol.
We already have a lot of “social” media trying to dictate who we are. I am concerned by hearing people who say they’re doing something for themselves, which is fantastic. What concerns me is when I also hear that someone talks about how their partner, a family member, friend etc talk about how what’s been happening to them, and that person should think about them.
Things like mental health, physical health are such a personal journey. If something you’re doing is affecting someone else’s mental or physical health, that’s on them. As incredibly selfish as it it. You need to do what you need to, to keep yourself safe. No one should put pressure on you to make them feel better.
Physical and Mental health are definitely things you should be, being selfish about.
You want to give up something for yourself, that’s great! Go For It! But please don’t do it for someone else. Maybe they person is just not a good fit for you. You cannot do it for other people, because you will end up resenting them. You just will.
IF THOUGH, the thing you’re giving for yourself will also help them. Great! Just don’t do it, because they’re telling you to do it for them. It’s not romantic, it’s honest though.
Bodies, what are they good for?
I swear since I’ve had COVID, I don’t think that my body has caught up with my brain in terms of recovering.
My left shoulder hurt, then that seemed to travel to my right. I am seriously going to have to contact my physio. It is just getting ridiculous. Then, for some odd reason, on Friday, I felt like I had vertigo or something. It was weird. I couldn’t shake my head fast, and I stood up from the toilet and had to slow myself going up.
The thing is, I think I am generally okay. It could all be I have actually hurt my shoulder at some point. My leg has actually been okay lately. Except for Sunday where I walked around with my Mum, shopping. That only started to flair up about 4 hours later, and we hadn’t really sat down.
I am not panicking, because I really do believe that it is just that I need to see a physio. Get my body back and corrected into place. It might even be just as simple as a lower back massage, which I am really looking forward too. Maybe a nice shoulder one too.
In the mean time, I am doing everything that I can to ward off the pain. So you know the inflammation tablets, the wheat bag, gentle shoulder exercises.
After last week, and after having a cold all weekend, this past weekend. There’s one thing that I really need to start doing.
Last week, I got so caught up in not healthy things, that I become stress sick. Which is a thing. You stress yourself out so much that you become sick, through seemingly nothing. As your immune system is down.
Now when I talk about goals, I don’t mean necessarily, making the bed every day. Although I do hear that’s a good one, because no matter what else, you achieve through the day. You’ve at least made your bed.
When I mean goals, I am talking/writing about things like:
- Restricting my social media time to an hour a day. On days that I feel like going on.
- Making a little bird house on the ground. Honestly, it’s cold here a lot now. I feed the birds since Travie’s been gone. Yesterday I noticed a few on them stayed under the verandah after they got caught out, in the rain.
- Since I’m behind in my reading, I need to spend a couple of hours a day reading something.
- Clean the stove top.
- Rebook my flu/cold jab after getting the flu this weekend =/
- Setting up a spreadsheet for budgeting.
Magic Monday – Moaning
You know, sometimes having a good moan can actually help. Especially if you have someone to share it with. Sometimes the moan can be a little bit silly too, but you know, if you let it build up and build up, you’ll explode. And give yourself an early heart attack.
- Twitter employees complaining about Elon Musk…Twitter has employees!!!!???? Where have they been? I’ve seen no evidence of them.
- All the problems in the world right now, and people are STILL bringing up Depp vs Heard, even though they’re not writing about that case in the their blog. I will unfollow, not sorry. I am team NO ONE. Because they’re BOTH horrible. Don’t waste our time. Write about important stuff. Heard being an abuser does not mean Depp isn’t one, idiots.
- In that case, I believe they are both as bad as each other. It’s fucked in the head to be angry about Roe vs Wade, but be all girl school “Team Johnny” when he literally texted that he wanted to burn Amber and stuff her in the trunk. There is something actually wrong with you, if you’re still “Team Johnny”. Use your HEADS. Why do you all *think* he keeps losing when he sues people who call him a wife beater…HE IS ONE! Twits.
- I don’t care how mad you get reading that one. You’re the one whose “Team-Guy-Who-Literally-Wanted-Too-Burn-and-Put-Heard-in-his-trunk”. I’m not the one with the problem.
- So the TERFs have being appropriating the Suffragette movement. Recently the UK had votes for their local elections. The TERDs decided to spoil their votes, by writing “Respect my Sex” and other transphobic stuff on their ballot papers. Good News: Four trans people were elected, and parties who were overly and openly transphobic, lost seats =D
- The Supreme Court Justices, that want THE PEOPLE to give up their privacy and body autonomy. But they will put gates up to “protect” themselves. You want the people to give up their privacy, but you think everyone should respect yours? That’s not how the real works.
World Health Day <3
World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization, as well as other related organizations. In 1948, the WHO held the First World Health Assembly.
Our Planet, Our Health
A lot of focus this year is on climate change, and when you take a look at the WHO website, you can certainly tell why.
WHO estimates that more than 13 million deaths around the world each year are due to avoidable environmental causes.https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2022
If you’re having a bad day, you might not want to read the website.
So what can you do to help?
With a lot of health issues, it starts with you. And this is no different with your health and how the climate affects that. You can start off simple.
- Planting trees and native plants. Even contacting your council to see about planting groups of trees.
- Lessening food wastage.
- Making decisions on healthier cleaning products.
- Try walking and riding a bicycle more.
- Reusable shopping bags.
What it’s like…
Just listening in on a conversation between my mum and my Gran (with the dementia). It was funny and heartbreaking. My grandparents split up and got divorced in the early 90’s, and yet the way she talks about him, it’s almost like he’s only just passed away and they were together that whole time. Yet, she doesn’t talk much about Reiki, and when she does, we can’t believe she doesn’t remember that’s why they split in the end, lol.
It is an odd thing to really witness, like you always hear about how people forget things and people. You kind of expect that to happen, but you don’t expect them to lose huge chunks of their life, just kind of like that. It’s sad, it’s funny, it’s…different to what you expect. She did amazing things with her Reiki and Tarot work, it took her around the world all on her own! Now it’s all kind of just gone. I guess, I take up that lantern?
Have any of you ever experienced anything different to what you expected?
So after the weekend, I started to speak about something that has been frustrating me for a long time. Places like Twitter, you see it all the time of people becoming quickly radicalized. You have to have a strong head on your body. I admit that I do go on social media a lot, especially at the moment. But it’s mostly to do with, I can’t believe the amount of shitty people!
However, one of the reasons I don’t become “either or” is because, I don’t have many friends and as I’ve said before I am not speaking to my Dad right now. The reason I don’t have many friends is because I have no problems with calling people out. The people in my life that I have, don’t put up with a lot of bull plop. Which is completely fine with me.
