Gonna do it…lol

This doesn’t really have anything to do with the post from the other day, lol. I guess though, in some ways it does as well.

We ALL know how Trump says things that we know are not true, just like the same with Rowling. You know, at least Trump is honesty with his badness. Like he’s not saying “Oh, I didn’t mean it like” Which Rowling does ALL the time. Just like Trump though, she also acts. How can I explain it. Trump Supporters will always overwhelming say that they want Democracy. However, it’s not actual Democracy, it’s just Trump type Democracy, it’s not true Democracy.

Rowling is kind of the same, in that whatever she says, her cults believes. She’s writing a book that’s about an author, whose criticised online and then get murdered … But she wants us to believe that it has nothing to do with the trans outrage.

How STUPID, does she think we are? That’s the dangerous thing about both Trump and Rowling, they both know that their followers will believe ANYTHING they say. So Rowling says “Oh, it has nothing to do with what’s happening now” Her cult followers will say to us “But she said it had nothing to do with it”

Oh, you just “came up” with that idea all by yourself then?

The reason for my blog though?

When I first saw that news article, I got SO angry. For those who don’t follow the anti-trans ideology, you know, be human. know perfectly well what she’s trying to do. My idea? Too write to bookshops in my state, and not ask them to ban it. That would never happen anyway. Just to consider though, maybe not advertising it *that* much? The book world deserves better than Rowling, it just truly does.

There are so many rumours that she stole a lot of HP from another author. Which is probably why she always “gives in” too fan theories. Dumbledore being gay, never mentioned in her books. That only came about when it became a popular idea. It’s also why I absolutely think she purposely wrote the Goblins working in a bank, so not original.

I will absolutely be polite and I am also going to present it with some facts. I’ve just never done something like this before. I would LOVE some advice, if anyone here has ever done something like that before?

I also only found today that the author who is murdered, is accused of being transphobic.

Need too

…What that is, I don’t know what. But I have at least a little under a year to figure it out.

Do any of you ever have that feeling, that you know you should be doing more with your life? After this past weekend and getting frustrated with nearly every aspect of life these days. I sat there drinking and letting off steam. Thinking, there must be more than this.

There must be more than getting seriously annoyed with people on social media, and their “opinions” and what “they think”. I don’t care what these bumbling buffoons’ think, or their opinions. There MUST be a more constructive way to let off steam. All I have to do now if think of it.

But ideas, I don’t mean like come off social media. I mean, but the frustration into something … I guess … crafty.

Do you know what I mean?

I always seem to write really great blogs when I’m frustrated, even if I have to schedule it for a week later. Make sure the grammar and the writing is not that bad. But in the meantime, maybe there’s other things I can do. The only thing is, what? Writing does help a lot, maybe starting a book about my frustrated thoughts and turn that into some sort of novel?

I follow, on Instagram, this little page called “Plushie Adoptions” and I think that’s a fantastic idea. I was thinking someone turning something like that into something, like helping animal rescues centers. Then my idea expanded, into making little gift baskets for all new animals that come into adoption centers. You know like, a lot basket of goodies. Plushies, treats in it, blankies. All sorts of thing, things you can probably purchase from a op shop. But, because I’m young…ish. I would want to get some sort of money out of it. As horrible as it sounds.

Then my brain starts going, just do it Lauren, for free. But then my needing to eat and pay bills side is all “Well you need to eat and pay bills”.

I have so many ideas, definitely charity-wise. But I just don’t have the money to start funding that sort of thing, and it’s SO frustrating. I guess I could look into it? Maybe even get a small grant from somewhere.

Actually the more I think about it, the more excited it seems…But would I be brave enough?

World Elephant Day

World Elephant Day

On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.

The above link is too a pledge to do what you can to help all elephants.

I love elephants, just as much as Lions. I see them and I do not understand how anyone could kill them. They are beautiful. They feel, they grieve and oh my goodness, I would say that a baby elephant is just as cute as a puppy or a kitten! And have you ever seen how fast an Elephant herd move when a baby is in distress?

Baby elephants do not come out knowing how to use their trunks either. They have to learn how to use them.

Also watch the elephant ears. That’s what they used to communicate, as well as watching their temperature.

Same same

Again, I am still blocked on Twitter, and dears, I have never been happier, lol

Why is it whenever there is ‘in-fighting’ in any group. Doesn’t have to be a specific group, it’s always the SAME people, with the SAME drama’s. Its god so boring, but it also actually harms the cause that you say you’re fighting for. Do you all remember the BLM marches? What people said of those who burned and looted. How many excuses the racists GOP used against BLM because of those people.

I remember listening to Former, First Lady, Michelle Obama’s podcast how black people had to be better than perfect. Its the same of any marginalised community. It’s not fair and it’s not okay, but it’s what must done. It’s what you need to do, to get that first foot safely in the door. And some times it is just better to shut up.

If Rowling came to my front door and said someone was trying to harm her, kill her, whatever, she was in danger. She’d still be welcomed into my house. It’s part of what makes me better than her. Why would any good person, think after everything Rowling and her cult have done, you can turn around and then pick and choose which trans people you want to protect. What’s the difference? If you want to call yourself something like “trans safety network” you can’t turn around pick which trans people you keep safe.

I don’t like Debbie Hayton, no respect for her/him whatever she/he is today. But she probably needs a lot more mental health help, with her inner transphobia than say someone like Laverne Cox. You help her/him, because you’re supposed to be better than her/him.

The mindset

Look, a good mindset will make your life so much easier. Sometimes I know it’s hard to do on certain days.

*I will still be checking my post “Ask me anything” for at least another 5 hours. If you would like to ask me anything.*

I had a lot of time to think over the last few days, and the one thing that still “annoys” me is, people complaining about masks. Like, I get it, but I have a worn a mask whenever it was clearly appropriate and I will continue to do so.

I don’t actually, properly, understand what the problem is. Of all the things you can do to help, wearing a mask, while it might be annoying. They’re not asking you too find a cure. Wearing a mask, getting vaccinated are literally the littlest things you can do to HELP others.

I don’t understand why people make such a fuss about them. Have we really lost that much empathy and sympathy for others? Like I wear a mask so much sometimes I forget I have one on. Sure, it’s annoying, end of the world? No.

We’re not in the Ukraine. They’re not asking you to fight a war, just put your mask on to help others. Is it going to last forever? No. But the more you do less to help, the longer it’s just going to be around for. We really are a generation of instant satisfaction. Get over it, lol.

Sometimes I think I’m really odd. Then other times I’m like “Nah, it’s just what must be done”. And at the end of it all, wouldn’t you want to be look at yourself in the mirror and go “I literally did all I could”?

Hello!

I am must apoligise for being so quiet on here the last couple of days. My partners family have come to visit and they are staying with us. In true “manly man” style, my partner didn’t clean much. Which thoroughly annoyed me. He’s on holidays, I am not, lol. I went straight from work to buy food, came home and nothing had changed from when I cleaned the night before. I didn’t get to bed till midnight, and the cleaning still wasn’t finished this morning.

Then my partner got himself washed and headed out to pick them up, but still hadn’t done anything this morning. He did do a little bit. And he complained the whole time how I don’t keep his house tidier. I looked at him and reminded him, it’s HIS house. I have not fully moved in yet. I told him when I bought it that I didn’t want him to get it, because I just KNEW I was going to be the one cleaning it all the time.

It’s freaking fancy. I am not, lol.

I’m just having a whine really, lol.

I make less then him, so I don’t mind doing more cleaning around the house. It’s just that I don’t live there, so I am not currently there all time, and I don’t get holidays. Which he does not cook dinner either! Even during his holidays.

I have warned him though, when we have children he will help out more.

If you don’t understand something, ask, with care. Personally I didn’t understand about they/them, but you ask and you learn. And don’t ask because you’re going to use it to harm.

I think the whole thing is, is that it’s really not that hard to understand. Just be kind. Don’t judge straight away. I know that it is only human, but you know how to catch yourself.

That heatwave!

Well, as an Australia, I think I am qualified to talk about this.

I’ve been noticing that a lot of people overseas, are talking about heat waves. Aren’t they just the WORST! I don’t mind Summer, but those heat waves are worse than cold. I can’t write about snow, my state doesn’t get it. Or at least, I’ve never seen it.

I’ve got some advice for you. Mainly, how I “cope” with out putting on an air-conditioner. My mum likes to say that we don’t work full time to not have the heating/air con on. But it’s also considering your bills and your energy use. Which, I’m sure you all know, can end up costing a lot. Then you start thinking “Well I didn’t really need it on then”.

Writing about air conditioning though, DON’T put it on to the point of freezing in your house either. Put it in on so your cool, not freezing. The amount of times my body has nearly collapsed, from going to somewhere freezing in an office building, to outside into a heat wave and my body cannot cope with that well. I don’t know why people do that either, it will make you sick. You’re putting your body into instant extremes.

Here is my list:

  • Prepare for a blackout. – Put some those ice blocks you put into picnic baskets, wrapping them up in a tea towel can help you feel cool. Make sure all torches are charged. If you prefer candles, make sure you know where the candles and matches are. Considering purchasing “light candles” the ones where you put batteries in and you can turn them of and off, different colours with a controller.
  • If you’re by yourself, close all the curtains/blinds. Anything that lets sun in, cover it up. Generally during the day you can still get enough light into a house to see, you just want to stop a lot of sun coming in.
  • Have a cool shower before bed. Again, not freezing, just enough to cool down.
  • Sometimes, I will dampen or wet a hand towel and put it on my head. I find that if I’m cool as I fall asleep, I will fall asleep well.
  • See how you can put a timer on your air con or fan. It’s the same with the damp towel, if I’m cool as I fall asleep, I will fall asleep. Sometimes I find that just having air moving helps as well.
  • If you’re in your house, go nude! If you can only do it when you’re by yourself, go nude then.
  • Buy a big dress or also known as a “moo moo” to wear around the house. If you wear it out as well, cool. Just something big and breezy around the house, can make you feel cool. But if you have to answer the door, then you’ve got something to wear.
  • Drinking is a bit harder, because people love their coffees and cups of tea. So we forget to drink water. I’ve also started to see that a lot of people don’t “like” water. But we need it. So flavour up your water. There are lot of ways to infuse your water with fruits, and all sorts of things. So no excuse to not drink water!
  • Talking about water, make sure you always have at least two bottles of water in the fridge. I don’t care if you infuse with them with something. But if you have a gathering, you will NEED water. Doesn’t matter if you don’t like water, I can guarantee a majority of your guests will drink water. Also though, when you open the fridge, that will remind you to drink water.

Self-Esteem

A lot of bigot people just do not have it.

Which is why they fall very easily for propaganda.

And it never stops amazing me how many people, being rich = a good person. When most of the time, it is very much the opposite of that. How jealous we are because they’re so good looking and rich, and have successful…

Well you may be rich, good looking (well a little bit) and have a great career.

But you’re still a terrible person, haha.

Being rich, good looking and a great career, doesn’t mean for a second that you’re a good person.

I could be the poorest of the poor, no career and be “ugly”, and I would still be a better person than you.

Because that’s how self-esteem works.

The anti-trans people may have the Republicans, the Tories, the Religious Right Christians and a lot of the right mainstream media’s ear. But I have the majority of people who stand with me when I say “trans rights are human rights”. That makes me the richest, the best looking and the best life ever!

So when you say to someone like me, after your “tweet” got 3000 “likes” of people who think cis is offensive (that’s pathetic by the way). You laugh and say to me “How does it feel to be part of a minority” I can reply “I’m not”, because one, I don’t NEED Twitter likes to determine who or who not is correct. Two, I’m not part of a minority and I can show all the facts and figure. You’ve got anon twitter accounts. Thirdly, I’m a straight white cis woman, I have a LOT of privileges and that shows a distinct lack of morality to call me a “minority”, because you got a lot of Twitter likes. That’s not what a minority is.

Also there are 330million twitter users.

Serious Stuff – Zero Discrimination Day & Self Injury/Harm Awareness Day

Well this is a heavy topic, and currently I am finally in a flood tears over Travies. So I am going to be putting a trigger warning on this, I would anyway, but I am trying too put a warning in for myself too, lol.

It is interesting to me, that Zero Discrimination and Self Injury/Harm Awareness are on the same day. As we progress in this world, since I am, at least, willing to admit that I don’t understand about self harming. I don’t think I’ve ever know someone who self harms. My father is an alcoholic, and while I think that is self harm. I doubt that’s what this self harm is about.

Usually when someone discriminates against another it’s because they don’t understand, so they put their fears onto someone else.

I guess all I ask for today is if you are upset, just be careful what you say and how you react to people today.
