These Mermaids

Mermaids are a organisation in the UK, that are consistently under attack from transphobic people. However, they do AMAZING work! For #Pride 2021 … Mermaids theme this year is #MyPrideFamily … Now I am white, straight and as basic as one can get. But even I know how beautiful of a theme this. Family is not always blood ❤ Home and Family is where the heart is ❤

You can also help this foundation, but donating to their crowd justice fund here

You can read for what for, by looking at the link, but I’ll explain a little bit.

LGB Alliance IS a hate group, who hide behind saying they protect women and children, and are just looking out for “sex based right”. Which is not a thing.

For those in the UK you might have seem them on the BBC, talking about trans issues, despite them being anti-trans and anti-LGB, if you don’t fit into their criteria of LGB.

Whatever sweet nothings the so-called “LGB Alliance” whispered into the ear of the Charity Commission the truth was set out in a speech by LGB Alliance director Bev Jackson on 9 March 2020. She described their real goal as follows:

“We’re applying for charitable status and building an organization to challenge the dominance of those who promote the damaging theory of gender identity.”

So Mermaids, supported by LGBT+ Consortium, Gendered Intelligence, LGBT Foundation, TransActual, and Good Law Project, are appealing the Charity Commission’s decision to award the so-called “LGB Alliance” charity status. 

Quiet a few people have appealed to the Charity Commission already. The response they got? They were being told that they were being too “emotional” So we suspect that the head, may be transphobic. LGB Alliance should have never gotten Charity status to begin with. So far, the Charity Commission, can’t even tell people WHY LGB “Alliance” were given Charity status. The response from them has been less than professional.

There is a little difficulty, because this would be one of the first cases of it’s kind. Where a organisation who are so blatantly bigoted against a group of people, including people from the LGB community, were given Charity Status. They haven’t actually run a cause or tried to get money through a crowd fund, FOR the LGBTQIA community. Any crowd funders they have run, have all been for discrimination against someone else. Or court cases that would discriminate against trans people and those they don’t think fit THEIR standard of LGB.

So please really consider donating to this cause. It’s a first of a kind, and a really important one. After all, who can you trust if a Charity Commission is being run by hateful people?

We also believe that LGB Alliance are the biggest reasons why the BBC wont allow their staff to March or celebrate at Pride, even off duty. Not sure if those in the UK have noticed, the LGB Alliance always talking on the BBC, about trans/women’s issues. Despite being anti-trans and despite coming after LGB people. Why Liz Truss, feels comfortable disbanding her LGBT Equality Panel, and attacking Stonewall. We think they want to replace Stonewall with LGB Alliance. Which would only happen over a lot of people’s dead bodies. Mine included.

The Times, The Telegraph and the Spectator REALLY hate Stonewall, and have no problem bashing them either.

BOSS CLAIMS LGB Alliance co-founder claims there should be no LGBT clubs in schools due to “predatory gay teachers” (By the way he is gay)

LGB Alliance warned by advertising watchdog over ‘potentially misleading’ claims about gender recognition Laws

Neo-Nazis and homophobes are amoung the supporters of the anti-trans group LGB Alliance

5 minutes

We had something truly horrible in South Australia last week. I’ve been trying to write this post for the past week, to make sure that it’s appropriate.

We had a “father” kill his 9 month old in a murder suicide. He took his baby and jumped over the wall at the Whispering Wall in Barossa. A famous wine valley in Australia, South Australia. When this occurred there were many people at the Whispering Wall, as it was school holidays. Including school children.

I’m just going to say it.

I hope the mother, gets 5 minutes alone with his corpse. You know how people always want to “honour” the dead, even those who were horrible people? Screw that! What kind of lesson does that teach, you get to be a horrible person all through life, just to be “honoured” when you’re dead? We’re all going to dead! Why do some terrible people still get to be celebrated in death!

I wish for that mother to have 5 minutes alone with that corpse.

Justice

So George Floyd got his justice, and I was really over the moon with it. When my Dad texted me at 6 in the morning, I just replied with “Justice!”. Then of course I had to get up. Too see that LGB “Alliance” was given Charity status, based on what, I don’t actually know. However, as people did point out that it mean LGB will now have to stick to certain guidelines, or they will be kicked out. Which is why I am really hoping whoever gave them the status, knows this and knows that LGB wont be able to keep it for long.

However, it is Justice for George Floyd. I am hoping this will start to make PD actually take their Officers “strikes” more seriously! Chauvin should NEVER have been still on the force. This would have NEVER happened if Police Departments took what they Officers were continually doing, seriously for once. It is Justice, but it’s also not Justice. Justice would be this not happening in the first place. Also, sadly, because Chauvin Officer record of misdemeanors within the Department was left out. This is also “technically” his first offense. Despite a LONG record of strikes against him.

While Chauvin’s verdict was being read, a young girl of colour was shot and killed by police, who she rang to help protect her … Makiyah Bryant.

Who would you be in the Justice League? We’re all for Gender Swapping here! ❤ I could see myself being “The Flash” =D

Justice!

This year has really made me reflect on stuff…One of the “stuff” being “Why do I love crime shows SO much”. After reading about what Trump had been saying this particular day. I thought to myself “This is why I like crime shows”. I would say that at least 95% of the shows I’ve seen. Always has some kind of justice at the end of the show.

(I am clearly Hawkgirl in this situation)

And honestly, I think that is what keeps me going. Right now, we aren’t really seeing any justice. Trump seems to be getting away with his stuff, transphobes too…and there are STILL really bad police officers out there. It definitely feels like the bad guys are winning.

After watching all these crimes shows, it can take years for Justice, but they do get their comeuppance in the end…

Share Your World – 06/22/2020

Questions:

Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

No, I had never done that. God knows, that I want to do that though!

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

As an adult, I haven’t been involved in a car accident, when I was a kid I was. It had been raining a lot this day and my mum just misjudged and we went spinning. We hit a tree, which we discovered later that the people had purposely planted that tree, because it seemed to happen a lot there. It was near a pond. I still remember what it felt like, the spinning.

(Oldie which has been asked many times before)   Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers?   Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?  

At the moment, I would never do that. Actually I have never done that. I’m such a square, but you know I couldn’t live with myself. What if that $20 was all that person had left over even for a week or two?. So I would hand it in.

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted?   If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!   🙂

I’m such a square, I never have,lol. I have considered it a lot, especially when I see something that’s really lovely, or a fun toy. But I don’t know why I stop myself. It might be because the things I would want to steal are really expensive. The things that I would want to steal are more like really fun toys, like your big Lego sets and those “Fur Real” toys. So I don’t think there’s a “secret” it’s just that I couldn’t get away with it,lol.


Gratitude.

Today I’m again giving folks a free pass from sharing (you’re still welcome to share if you want to of course) and re-blogging a really thought provoking post by Pam of Butterfly Sand.  This was brought to my attention by Di of Pensivity101.   Thanks to both awesome ladies for sharing a post that I’m very grateful I got to read.

I just wanted to point this out, because I keep forgetting to mention it. I will/have started to write the date as dd/mm/yyyy…As that is part of my world. Being Australian, we put the day first, instead of the month.

Questions:

In your opinion, does patriotism require the belief that one’s country is the greatest on earth?

No. You’ll have moments where you think it is, but nothing and nobody is perfect forever. We all have our moments.

Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? What is so important about love of country? Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country?

I think it’s more of a “pride” thing. Some people feel like they choose to live where they live, so it must be perfect, like them. They wouldn’t be living there if it wasn’t perfect. I love Australia, but I think (and I think a lot of others can relate) our current Government. Has shown the very worst flaws in our Government systems, and our Country. There’s nothing wrong with having a flaw, the problem happens when you don’t want to acknowledge it. It’s like having a cancer, all that happens if you don’t acknowledge it…well, you die.

What is the relationship between decisions and consequences?

They are related by, whatever decision you decide to take, will have some kind of action. it might be good, it might have consequences. But it all starts with that first decision.

What is social justice?

Social Justice is usually used by your every day human being. It’s kind of like taking the Law into your own hands. Most of the time, people don’t break the Law. When I think of social justice, I think of people like Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, Mother Teresa. People who protest peacefully, people who make the point with no violence. People who want to make a difference for others, like Greta Thunberg.

and one ‘easy’ one because those others?  Fairly difficult.

What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing? (told you.  Silly).

Either one arm or one leg. I think that I could get by still if I lost one of them. Okay, maybe a leg, I still want to be able to open jars, open my own packet of chips/crisps.

What is something that made you smile during the past week?

I started watching John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight”, last week. Anyways, he was talking about sports, and those missing them, those who are already over it. You have to watch the segment. All I’ll say though “Jelle’s Marble Run League”.

Please, remember them.

As much as I am a fan of a good conspiracy theory. I think we need to be careful with spreading them when it comes to Jeffrey Esptein and remember that people, children, that Esptein hurt… Are now grown ups…Possibly still children. They’ve lived with this for years and now justice is being slowly taken away from them. Just be careful in these times ❤

Alabama, Georgia…

What can I say, when I live all the way in Australia?

Thank you to Senator Bobby Singleton who yelled at the sneaky devils trying to get a motion through without the normal process. A law that would allow a woman to be locked up for 99+ years for abortions, even AFTER being raped in Alabama. So while the rapist gets, probably nothing. The woman would have the potential to be locked up for 99 years! *I started to write this when it hadn’t gone through yet*

In Georgia not only are they making it harder to get abortions, but you can be arrested and put in jail if you miscarry…They have to prove that the woman did it on purpose and we all know how fantastically fair the American justice system is…

“Karma”

I am sure by now we have all seen the many reports of alleged sexual predatory behaviour and too me it is so sad that this is just on so badly. It’s horrible!

I think what is making me the MOST angriest though is all the Trump supporters who almost seem to believe anybody who is a “leftiest” it suddenly almost makes them think that Trumps being voted in as a known sexual predator. Suddenly all these people who are being accused of being one it’s “karma” and it’s amusing, and also dissolves Trump of anything he’s done. Yet, when it’s “one of them” they are completely innocent of course.

It is NOT “karma” for criticising the fact that the President is a sexual predator…It is called people being sick and tired of seeing these people get away with being sexual predators and being voted into places of power by mindless sheep, like them.

 

Uncomfortable

*I just want to start this off by saying that these thoughts are literally my own thoughts, I do not recommend or wish to dissuade anyone*

I recently read an article (please press the link): “I call him my rapist”  . Breaking the article down it is about a woman (and yes men can be raped too) In this situation though, it’s about a man raping a woman. After years of no one doing anything about her case, and being told that her files from her visit to the hospital had been destroyed and then finding out that they HADN’T been destroyed! As well as the AVO she had out on the guy had “accidentally” been destroyed. Over a 16 year period the guy ended up doing the same to at least three other women (that they know about) BUT they decided to make the cases separate, so the jury would never hear how he did this too other people. He was acquitted.

The lady then decided it was about time someone did something and so she posted the guy’s address. Which then instigated a whole load of backlash and even threats of arrest, because we have to wait and let “Justice” take it’s course.

This is why I am so on the fence, it does make me feel uncomfortable for someone to post someone’s address, whether or not they did something. On the other hand, I can completely get where this women is coming from. The irony in threatening her with legal ramification is just also kind of laughable as well. When she did come out with his address as well other women then came forward, thinking they were the only ones who he had done this too. How can someone whose been raped, has the proof and yet has been the one being threatened to be charged with something?

How does it come too that?

Yet, still, people cannot figure out why people do not go the police.
