The last time…

When was the last time you just looked out?

You sat on the grass/ground/floor and looked up?

When was the last time you looked up into clouds to see what shapes they made.?

When was the last time you read that favourite childhood story?

When was the last time you literally stopped to smell a flower?

When was the last time you stopped and listened to the birds?

Sat and looked as the sun sets into a ocean?

When was your last good laugh?

When was the last time you smiled about yourself, to yourself.

If you have to really think about it, then it’s been too long!

I say this with a lot of “love”.

TERFs are completely and utterly nuts and insane.

I just got a violation for saying you’re either trans or cis, which is a fact. I’m not even sure how it’s hateful. While Rowling is allowed to sell and advertise actual anti-trans merchandise? It’s getting weird out there folks!

I am not shocked by this article and what is written. I am shocked though, that some one allowed this be published, in the UK!. After all it puts their precious delicate white Queen TERF Rose, in a bad light.

JKRowling anti-trans rhetoric

Oh, and in the world of the Land Down Under. Facebook restricts Australians from sharing or viewing news content while Google strikes deal with News Corp.

#FacebookAustralia, you will probably only get this if you’re Australian.

Giving some love to the trans community

You should all follow Katy! ❤ She is such a wonder to the trans community, and I always love her eye make up, haha. And NOW, she has more subscribers than Glinner! Whose a straight cis man, who harasses women, lesbian and straight, if you are a trans ally. He also created “The I.T. Crowd” and I think some others. He has been banned from nearly every single social media platform.

So, please subscribed to Katy’s YouTube ❤ She is a beautiful person, and takes a lot of heat from TERFs and GCS, including other trans people, who suck up to TERFs and GCs. She does a LOT of videos about what she puts up with, and gets on a daily basis, based in the UK. It’s a lot! But she handles it SO well!

ACLU Three Ways to be an Informed Advocate to Transgender People

THE MAGIC IS YOU!!!

This post is about loving others.

I am going to start off with a tweet and a did you know…

Did you know, that Abigail Thorns coming out tweet has more likes that JKRowlings transphobic tweet.

Love Trumps Hate

This is where I write about what I am now going to write about.

I get that a lot of people have been hurt and shocked by Rowling, I’m not even a huge HP fan, and even I was shocked.

What I don’t get, is why people keep insisting on buying her stuff.

You hit bigots in the pocket, not continually buying their stuff.

Now I know she’s a got a HP tv show coming out. People are “outraged”, but how many will actually watch it. Just don’t watch it, make them regret it.

We have a show in Australia, on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) called Insiders, every year the host is the most popular host on the ABC. Every year, people ask “why”, because no one likes him. Yet, every week, the same people who don’t like him, are watching the show.

Listen up.

YOU ARE NOT BEING MONITORED WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE THE SHOW. YOU ARE ONLY BEING MONITORED THAT YOU’RE WATCHING IT!

Left and Right both do this by the way.

Every week everyone complains about David Speer hosting Insiders, and every next week, they’ll watch it again.

Last year, individual Harry Potter books made the top list and number one’s of Christmas lists. Giving TERFs and GCs ammunition against the trans community again. Don’t feel to bad, trans people who don’t like Rowling, bought them too. Something about new editions, with new covers.

So basically, she brought out new stuff.

STUFF.

STUFF

.., STUFF …

Magic doesn’t come from “stuff”, but from YOU. Take what you want from HP, but that’s how I took HP. It’s you, it’s always been you!

Next bit in capitals.

YOU ARE THE MAGIC, THE MAGIC IS YOU … YOU DON’T NEED STUFF TO MAKE YOU MAGICAL

Fight back against Lady Voldemort by not buying her stuff! SHOW HER, THE MAGIC IS YOU, YOU DON’T NEED HER MAGIC!

Thursday Theories – Cupid

Of course, just before the “day of love”. Who better to write about then the God of Love.

Now there are two different versions of Cupid. In Roman mythology, his name is Cupid and in Greek Mythology his name is Eros. Cupid is most definitely the well more known of the two though, especially in the Western world.

Cupid is the son of the God, Mercury (the winged messenger of the Gods) and Venus. He often appeared as a winged infant carrying a bow and a quiver of arrows whose wounds inspired love or passion in his every victim. It’s interesting to see that both Cupid and his Mother, Venus, are the two most well known Gods from Roman Mythology, when we are so familiar with the Greek Gods and Goddesses. I wonder, why those two?

Eros, is the son of Aphrodite and Ares. Whether or not Aphrodite was actually married to the God Hephaestus, is still up for debate. In some legends, she’s an unmarried escort to Ares and Hephaestus has another wife, some legends it’s the other way around.  In the Theogony of Hesiod (fl. 700 BCE), Eros was a primeval god, son of Chaos, the original primeval emptiness of the universe.

According to Hesiod, four primary divine beings first came into existence: the Gap (Chaos), Earth (Gaea), the Abyss (Tartarus), and Love (Eros).

Both Cupid and Eros, were represented by winged youths.

Again, though, the Ancient Eastern people also have their own “Cupid and Eros”.

Kama, (Sanskrit: “Love,” “Desire,” “Pleasure”) in the mythology of India, the god of erotic love and pleasure. As with both Cupid and Eros, in later periods he is depicted as a handsome youth, attended by heavenly nymphs, who shoots love-producing flower-arrows. His bow is of sugarcane, his bowstring a row of bees. Once directed by the other gods to arouse Shiva’s passion for Parvati, he disturbed the God’s meditation on a mountaintop. Enraged, Shiva burned him to ashes with the fire of his third eye.

It’s interesting to me, that even though they are from different Worlds, it’s amazing how very similar each cultures Gods and Goddesses are.

How to actually love and protect women and girls

This one is for the TERFs.

How you actually love, and in turn, protect women and children, is simple …

LISTEN TO THEM!!!

Don’t be posting pictures of trans women, side by side, or playing with cis women and asking random people “How is this fair, how is this dignified” When you HAVEN’T ASKED THE WOMEN ON EITHER SIDE OF HER!

I realise today actually, what pisses me off about the TERFs the most. All the big “wigs” have all admitted that they were attack by a man, a cis man. Not a trans man or a trans woman, a cis man. Yet, for some reason, they’ve ALL decided that instead of focusing on why men are more prone to violence. They decided to make their focus trans people. Which SOLVES NOTHING! The cycle of violence against women CONTINUES. Because instead of making violence against women, the topic, they’re making innocent people the focus. Instead of making the men who did violence towards them, the focus, they’ve decided to take the focus off of them, and place it on someone completely innocent!

Love is Food and Food is Love

I decided to post a few yummy Valentine’s Day treats! Mentioning that there is absolutely no shame in making these for yourself either ~.^

I think food that is for any kind of love, should be comforting you. However, comforting food CAN BE HEALTHTY. Sometimes I’ll show my body some love, with fruit or a healthy snack. Comfort and “love” food can be healthy and unhealthy.

The first one I’m going to show you is chocolate biscuits! Sounds boring, but my partner and I (luckily) both love the Subway cookies. There’s usually a “fight” for that last biscuit. So this recipe is a bit of a variation of those cookies.

Fudgy-wudgy chocolate cookies

So while not exactly like Subway cookies, I actually found this recipe looking for them. I’ve had baked them a few times and they always go quickly.

Strawberries dipped in stuff

Now, normally I have to buy these already made, because … well to be honest … I have no patience to wait =D Haha.

Croissants

Well, French is love … Right? And you can put so much on them! Eggs, jam, cheese, avocado, ham and cheese. And now you can make gluten free croissants.

Seafood … Well, I wont post a link to this. I am sure you all have recipes or meals with seafood, that you love. I’m not a big fan of any type of Oyster myself, but I hear they are a aphrodisiac.

What foods and treats make you feel all warm and gooey inside?

Obligations

I don’t know if men experience this too, but I am sure the ladies know what I’m talking about.

There’s always that one person, usually one of the opposite sex, who every single time you sign onto a social media platform, that also had DM’s or you can privately chat.

They’re there “Where are you” “What are you up too” “Can we chat” “Why wont you chat with me”.

It is REALLY annoying! And also really puts me off wanting to go on, which I guess, isn’t totally bad.

People, we don’t have to chat to these … I don’t know what to call them … Obligations

You should never ever be obligated in a friendship to chat just whenever they want. You are under no obligation to chat with someone when you don’t want to. I actually was a little shocked the other day when I post a message to someone, something that I thought they’d like. And they did say “thank you” But then ended it with “I thought you had forgotten about me”.

Like, come on. If you want to chat, see that message I sent you? You send one back through that. Communication is a two way street.

Posting a post on FB, Twitter, Insta … doesn’t automatically = I want a chat. If you want one though, ask.

My Goal for February

Right, I don’t know how this is going to go. However, since February is the month of “love” What with your Valentines Day, Library Lovers Day, showing some love for Black History Month. I am going to try and do nothing but posts about love.

Now, I don’t means just lovey dovey stuff. I mean posts about loving yourself in a G rated manner, maybe PG rated, haha. Posts about love for your family, friends, romantic love, love for your fur, feathery, scaly babies. Probably with a sappy lovey dove post.

I already have a couple of posts for next week, I’m going to see if I can change them to make them more about “love” But I’m not promising anything. You might be able to tell.

Never give your energy to Hate

There is a very good reason why you should never ever HATE someone. I include, murderers, rapists, pedophiles, animal abusers. When you hate someone, that’s a very powerful emotion to have. While I don’t blame the victims for hating their perpetrators, and THEY should do so. For us to hate the perpetrators, take’s away from the love and energy you should give the victim INSTEAD.

Now, I am not saying on ANY level to love a perpetrator, but spend YOUR love on the victims instead. Don’t hate the perpetrator, LOVE the victim instead. Also hate is such a wasteful emotion. What’s that saying…
