Opinion

If you haven’t heard by now, there is an “anti-Greta”. I don’t actually know her name, because they only call her the “anti-Greta”…obsessed much? It’s been funny though, because it’s like Greta is for Science, so is this person anti-science too? One person told me that she had said there were more scientists that deny climate change than “for” it. I know that there are scientists that so deny it, but more?

I laughed at one person when they said “it’s nice to see someone with a difference of opinion”. Except, they have the exact same opinion. Same is not different. If your opinion is the same as anti-Greta’s, than that’s not a different anything, it’s the same. Also, science is not an “opinion” It’s based on the best facts at that time. I guess like not using witnesses and documents to prove how innocent you are, is proving someones innocence? Can you imagine going to a murder trial with that? I’ve got all this evidence to prove how innocent I am, but you can’t use it.

Dear god, Conservatives, are so dumb.It hurts my brain. I went onto Facebook, Insta and Twitter today to say how I was going to only post positive things on Mondays and Fridays now…Twitter…is a…cuse my French…shit storm. My dyslexia was playing up so badly, I had to come off again,lol.

 

You know…You know?

A couple of weeks ago now I wrote a post about Georgia and their new abortion Laws. One comment I made about that post was about, I felt a little like why was I writing the post. Because the people who already get that PP, especially, don’t just do abortions. It is, in fact, one of the smaller services that they perform/provide. Reading some peoples’s “ideas” about PP you’d think PP is having women coming in and out a revolving door, that never ends, and it’s all PP do. It’s just not true. But you can’t tell them this, they don’t want to know.

My mum and I have conversations like that all the time. Where we are talking to each other, but get annoyed at others who just don’t “get it”.

We both love Russell Brand, he’s such an interesting human being and we’ve only just recently discovered that he has a podcast and of course, it’s amazing. I can’t remember who he was talking too, but he was talking to a teacher of psychology. The teacher was saying that in the last 5 years he has noticed a huge increase in psychology students getting notes from their local Doctors, about how they don’t have to do any public speaking. He said that about 5 years ago, there might be one or two…if that…Now it’s nearly half the class.

They were talking about as the generations come along, they are becoming weaker, and on some level I do agree. I also do blame social media for it as well though. I even blame people like myself. My brother apparently know gets anxiety issues sometimes, and I wonder if it’s because of me. Then I tell myself, it probably is and it makes me so angry because everyone keeps telling me to step up for him. No, I had figure it out for myself what triggers me, what my problems really are. If he really has it, then literally no one else can figure it out, but himself. I should not step up. Doesn’t mean I have to be nasty, but you can’t really step up for others. You can support, but you can’t force your life onto someone else’s.

The reason it make me angry is 1) He’ a hypochondriac (like our Dad). You say the word flu or cold, I guarantee he’ll have it the next day. The weird thing is if he actually has something wrong, he wont take the whole medication. It’s just weird. He keeps saying he can’t fly to our state, but he can to Sydney? It’s just weird. 2) He keeps turning down any solution and keeps saying things like “I can get over this myself”. When you have anxiety, you don’t want it. You don’t do nothing about it? 3) When I had my really bad day a couple of weeks ago now. AFTER I publicly said said I wasn’t coping. He publicly humiliated me about three times in that same week. Things that wouldn’t normally bother me, but not a good time at that time. The last time my Mum said did I watch the rest of the Instagram stories, I lost it,lol.

The reason I bring up my brother though as well. Everyone expects me to take care of him, why? To get to the place I have gotten to, is because I fought and am still fighting my anxiety. I don’t expect others to do it for me. I listen (or read) other people’s solutions and I see if they’ll work for me. When I face an anxiety issue and I get through it, I don’t turn around and go “Oh well, never doing that again” I keep doing it, to make sure I become comfortable with it.

Support is fantastic and never underestimate it. Don’t just throw the support to the side.

But like my brother, how is the Doctor giving those student notes, instead of making them face their issues…Going to help? I can’t get over that they are psychologist students, lol…You know, you know?

Writing all of that, got a lot of frustrations off my chest then…But I bet you all knew that already!

 

Don’t @ at me

Whenever someones says this now I just go “Okay” and unfollow,lol

For those who don’t know what “Don’t @ at me” means, it’s very simple to explain. It means that if you don’t agree with that persons comments, don’t bother commenting or tagging them in their comment. Usually when someone says this I’ve started to realise that it’s usually because they know what they’re writing is unpopular and is usually full of personal feelings and not actual facts.

It’s kind of like when people say that it’s just their “opinion” and don’t want to have to deal with the comments, because usually their “opinion” is full of ignorance, no facts and bigotry. Except they use their “opinion” like it’s a facts, when it is, in fact, not a fact at all.

So don’t @ at me and posts about “Everyone’s entitled to their opinions” are usually people you don’t want to be around. That’s why I’ve have started to say “For myself, personally” because I know my opinion is just that…An opinion.

The Facts of the Matter

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate? Here are the steps to get started.

via Fact — The Daily Post

When I watch people today…I wonder to myself…Why do people seem to think that their opinion is a fact? When they don’t agree with that person, the other person’s opinion is “invalid”.

OPINIONS ARE NOT A FACT! EVER…NEVER EVER HAVE BEEN

Stephen Colbert Television GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Every opinion is valid, because that’s what they are…an opinion. You’ve looked at the facts and made an opinion about them. This is the thing about facts…A fact cannot be changed, how you perceive it though is an opinion. Human Beings have a tendency to do that a lot. Change a fact to suit themselves.

Take, for example, the whole Trump mess…How one thing is not okay for Hilary to do, but perfectly fine for Trump to do? Now the facts of that matter do not change, they both do something horrible, yet one is worse than the other?

Trump paying for sex with a hooker while his wife is nursing, is somehow better than Bill Clinton having consensual sex with Monica? Sure, to some and their opinion Clinton will always be worse. I do wonder if their partner did to them when Bill and Trump did to their wives, which one would they really think is worse?

#whataboutism

One person you like, doesn’t mean that the person you don’t like, doing the exact same thing makes only one of them worse…Same is Same…That is a fact!

 

Bully or Not a Bully?

Isn’t it great when you’re writing one post and then come up with another Blog Post idea?

I was writing about “something that I’ve created” and I mentioned about a person who let me know that I’m upset people better listen because when I’m upset, something must be really wrong. The irony is what she said was she ended being one of my biggest bullies that I’ve ever encountered before.

That’s when it struck me though, does she (and other one) even consider themselves to be bullies? I have few mutual friends with these girls, amazingly I lost a lot because of them as well. Since we have these friends in common sometimes I see them write comments that still, to this day, make me roll my eyes. However the things they say they don’t seem to think that they have ever done anything wrong in their life. Which perplexes me, clearly.

It did make me think though how many of our bullies actually even think they have been bullies themselves? There is that whole theory that bullies are bullies because someone bullied them. So maybe they don’t think they are because they’re not bullying like their bullies have?

Thoughts? Opinions? 

Meme’s

I wanted to start this post off with saying “Yay! I thought of something to write” and I’m writing it in a hurry so hopefully I don’t get my English all mixed up!

Also though, when did a meme become a “fact” or a representative of a whole community? There are some good meme’s out there, I also know though in my mind that a meme doesn’t represent a community as as whole. So I have HUGE issue with the meme that is pictured below.

SkinnyvsFat.jpg

This meme tends to come up a lot when you see the fat vs skinny debate. I don’t know why people think this ONE meme represents an entire community, or that it’s some kind of evidence, because I know it’s not true. The majority of guys in my family, especially on my Dad’s side are all tall and skinny. My Dad’s nickname when he was younger was “Bones”. Now I get asked A LOT if my brother, cousins and Uncles are eating (generally by bigger people as well) BEHIND THEIR BACKS and through private messaging. So I know it DOES happen.

Also though and quiet frankly, someone SHOULD be talking to this guy. I don’t know why bragging how no one seems to care about your health is a good thing, or proves a point either? I would also be willingly to bet that people talk about it behind his back. He doesn’t mention as well though how everyone comments on how great he looks either.

As a society we are becoming bigger, it’s just a fact. Each person’s health will be different and it will depend on a lot of different factors. I’m not obese, but because of my families issues with high cholesterol. I do have high cholesterol, so I have to be aware of that all the time. So although I am not what people would call “obese” I know my body can become unhealthy very quickly. I do wonder though if people who do get so upset so quickly about their weight by strangers, might be feeling guilty? I always feel guilty when I eat bad food, because I know I probably shouldn’t.

It’s an interesting topic, I get called skinny by some and fat by others. Yet I never get upset about it. I don’t know why. I guess in some ways I know if I REALLY wanted to do something, I could. But it wont be because of someone else’s meme or opinion of me…Except for possibly my Doctors point of view,lol

*I still hope someone talks to this guy*

Sad Reminders

An 11 year old boy killed himself after his 13 year old girlfriend faked her own death. She is know facing charges. (Washington Post)

We live in a dangerous time, a time where it is so easy to read other people’s opinions, other people’s stories…A time where, for some reason, everyone automatically believes the first thing they see with their eyes. Even though over and over again we are proven wrong. #fakenews

How many times do we get an email from someone we know and we instantly know something ins’t right about the email? How many times have we been told by a friend or family member that they have received spam messages from us? Personally I’ve had a couple of times where I’ve had friends let us know if we’ve received a message from them, it’s not them.

It’s really made me think before I just automatically go and condemn someone, to actually do my own research before I go and knee jerk attack someone.

What I think I can’t stand more than people attacking someone without doing any research, are the people who take no responsibility for attacking someone, especially someone they don’t know, reporting them to their work place and potentially getting them fired and they are wrong.

There was an incident recently I saw, literally the day after I read about the 11 year old killing himself, of a screen shot on Instagram of someone who had apparently sent a message to someone they don’t know, a racist and threatening Facebook comment. Well of course complete strangers went and reported the guy. So I was just as annoyed at this guy and went had a look at the guys Facebook. It was the oddest thing ever, the guy was African American himself, he had his African American sister defending him, something seemed “off”. While I don’t think it’s impossible for people of the same skin colour to attack one another, the whole thing just didn’t ring true.

However, that wasn’t even the issue I had. The issue I had was someone mentioned to this Instagram page that they were potential ruining someones family (the person is a married family man) and getting them seriously hurt over something they’ve probably haven’t even done. Instead of people going “You know what, we may have possibly goofed up” Nope…They decided to attack this other person and call them a troll and THEY needed counselling, because they were swearing…That was it…They were swearing mainly because other people were just not listening to what they were saying.

When are people going to take responsibility for themselves?

How can we ask those who are actually doing the wrong thing to take responsibility, when we as the “good” people and the social justice warriors, cant’?

Share Your World: Ribbonrx Edition: April 3 2017

(Please read Ribbonrx Blog…Such a variety of important topics!)

What’s something you like to do the old-fashioned way?

Dance! I love those dancing videos of Astaire and Rogers, and I have such a crush on Gene Kelly. They just moved. When they dance, they just seem to move (sounds like a really stupid way to describe it I know). The best way I can describe it, it just seemed natural to move that way, almost as natural as walking. All that twerking and krumping, it’s just not dancing to me, it’s all just disjointed…Just my personal opinion.

What’s your favorite genre of book or movie?

Its hard to say musical a favourite genre for books, but musicals truly are probably my favourite genre. I guess if I was looking for a genre that was to fit both, would have to be fantasy. Lord of the Rings springs to mind where the genre really does fit both the book and the movie.

How often do you people watch?

I do it quiet a lot, if I’m at work I probably am doing it at least once or twice a day. Where I work currently we are the central part of helping people find their way, we are the front desk and we’ve got these huge windows that we can look out at. It’s incredibly addictive. It’s incredibly addictive for people watching and day dreaming on a quiet day.

What have you only recently formed an opinion about?

Good Question…There is a lot of different issues out there and lots of different opinions and I have re-looked at a lot of mine own. This is what I’ve discovered. There are far too many different opinions out there and that is what they are…Opinions…Just because you or I think it a certain way doesn’t make it’s right. For anyone, or any level. You can sit on your social media and try to change the meaning of a word to suit yourself, it still doesn’t mean that’s what that’s means. You can tell yourself that meaning or that word is not the same when it applies to you, so you don’t have to think of yourself as the same as the people who hurt you, but you are still doing the exact same thing. I get it, it’s like the bullied becomes the bullying, or the abused become the abusers, it’s a very well known thing to happen. You trying to sit there and saying though “Well it’s the not the same when I do it” Doesn’t make it suddenly change. I mean with anything, not just bullying and abuse. If you are doing the exact same hateful and saying vile things, like those that were said or done to you…Then yes, you are the same as them. You don’t get a “Get out of Jail” free card.

My Beauty and the Beast review

Now we all know I am probably going to write an extremely positive review of this movie, Beauty and the Beast, because I have been waiting with postivity since the first day I found out it was even coming out. However, you never truly know how a movie is going to affect you…I might have totally hated it…except for the fact that…I TOTALLY FREAKING LOVED IT!!!

It’s a few days later and I am still on this total happy natural high. It is amazing =D I haven’t felt like this for a really long time.

One of the things that I loved about the animation was that Belle seemed like a departure from the usual “damsel in distress-is doing everything for a man” and READS! Also I could relate to her on a more personal level. Everyone telling me all the time I look gorgeous, but at the same time people consistently making fun of me for being so “odd”. In both the animation and the live action film. The song “Belle” which is one of the first songs (I think it is actually the first song) which introduced us to Belle, both the animation and live action, made me cry. I believe that a soundtrack can break or make a movie, as well as the acting and the plot.

What I really loved and appreciated about this movie was that it extended all the good points of the animation.

There is much more diversity, Belle tries to teach a little girl how to read despite the outrage, much more background on characters, which makes you understand them more. I’m sure you’ve heard about Josh Gad, who plays LeFou, Gastons “sidekick” and the gay “controversy” surrounding that character. The problems for all suffering from illiteracy.
