Magic?

Something recently happened to me to make me realise, I am VERY different from other people. Someone passed away over the weekend, and all weekend I had to see as people posted a character they played, quotes.

I was all like

I was getting so annoyed, lol

See this ‘person’ not only contributed in the ongoing harm of vulnerable people, they defended it by saying it wasn’t harmful and people are just easily offended. And again, they did not belong to the group of people who were being harmed, and they were harming.

My biggest crushes are Orlando Bloom, and Matt Smith. I find them both incredibly sexy. Sexy in looks and personality, and their acting.

HOWEVER,

If they did what this other actor did and contributed. I would go off them, and when they passed, I would not be posting about their characters. I wouldn’t post about them at all.

This is definitely a personal opinion.

I believe this is what infantilize adults. This is what I believe one of the problems with adults is. I love fiction and a dream world, probably more than anyone else on the planet. I HATE reality, but I love fiction, because it is not like reality. There is enough fiction to be happy.

I am going to use Johnny Depp as an example (also did you see Depp shaved off his beard, ewww,lol).

Thursday Theories – He’s real

This is the last time I will write about the the new Ariel “The Little Mermaid”. Mainly because I feel like you, my lovely readers, already “get it”.

The main reason I’m writing about it, is because I cannot get over the general stupid reasoning with “adults. Their “reasons” behind their whining. I will not give them the dignity of calling it an opinion, it’s just REALLY stupid.

For me, I can’t get over that these are “adults” whining, people my age, my mum and Gran’s age. It’s incredible!

Some of the stupidest things I’ve heard are listed below:

  • If they had a white man play Martin Luther King Jr, there’d be outrage!
  • She traditionally, was always played by a white person!
  • If you had white people play characters in Colour (Color) of People and Roots. There’d be outrage.

OF COURSE THERE WOULD BE, YOU UTTER BUFFONS!

Martin Luther King Jr, was a REAL person. Who fought for POC. He’s the one who really got the Civil Rights Act, moving. Colour (Color) of People and Roots, while may be not based on real people. Are based on REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES.

They are NOT MYTHS! They are real, living breathing human beings and real experiences.

As for the “traditionally always played by a white person” comments. So? It’s still a mythical creature, whose never existed. If a POC had written it first, it would have never been published to begin with. Andersen wrote his Little Mermaid and it was published in English: 1845. It just wouldn’t have happened. Also one, again, is a character in a fairy tale, and the other well known Mermaid, is an animation. So…

Honestly, I can imagine Mermaids and Men, more in Caribbean waters than the cold depths of European waters. That’s just me though. Look, the Little Mermaid is not my favourite Disney movie. It’s not close to even the Top 5. Considering what time Andersen lived in though, and the fact that he travelled too Italy, Greece and Constantinople. I suspect, he may have been influenced by those countries. But in the 1800’s, who, in Europe, would have read a story about a POC mermaid? Have you seen the fuss they’re making about in 2022?

Whoever has been in Rome is well acquainted with the Piazza Barberina, in the great square, with the beautiful fountain, where the Tritons empty the spouting conchshell, from which the water springs upwards many feet. “Hans Christian Andersen” The Improvisatore (1835!) Ten years before the Little Mermaid????!!!!

Not understanding…

One of the things that I found interesting when QE2 passed. Is how little people understand how the Monarchy even works, and I’m not even British.

You know how everyone keeps having a go at Meghan and Harry for talking badly about the Royal Family? When they, in fact, never have. They’ve talked about how the FIRM have treated them. Just like the Queens twitter account did not wish Meghan a happy birthday and the others did. No, the Queen, couldn’t just say what she wanted too.

So, no, the Queen could not just condemn things, in her name.

The amount of documentaries I’ve watched about Henry the 8th, Elizabeth the 1st, Mary Queen of Scots. Their lives are NOT their own. They DON’T speak for themselves. They are surrounded by those who speak for them. Which is why YOU have to be so careful about what you read/listen about them.

It’s why I only listen to when they do actually use their own words. I watch their body language, I listen to them speaking.

I don’t know her

I was asked a really odd question the other day “Don’t I think that Meghan Markle is narcissistic ?” I think I gave her a ‘look’, because she quickly said “Well I do”.

I have noticed that this attitude seems to be people of a certain generation. The same generation that gave the Royal Family a hard time over Princess Diana. I remember the hatred from older generations with how Diana was treated. Now they all want to hate on Meghan and Harry? Pick a side, lol

I have lost a lot of respect over people over the whole Harry and Meghan situation. Unless you are part of the royal family, you do NOT know how it works. We just recently had a used to be a reputable tv show. Do THREE shows in one week just on Meghan Markle, and they actually had the audacity to ask “Is she the bully, or is she being bullied?” Excuse me? You have a LITERAL PEDOPHILE in the Royal family, and you’re doing THREE shows in ONE week on Meghan Markle and you REALLY have to ask that?

You don’t know them to be making comments like that, about people YOU DONT KNOW. You also are IGNORING the literal pedophile in the Royal Family. I want to know about HIM, I want to know about why everyone is so silent about that, and why you’re asking me inane questions about people WE DON’T KNOW. I don’t care about Harry and Meghan, I want to know more about WHY PRINCE PEDOPHILE ANDREW is just being let off, scott-free, by these same stupid people. Who are asking me these really stupid questions.

Like Prince Harry said, you remember him? Princess Diana’s actual child, not you. He can see the same thing happening that happened with his MOTHER, happening with HIS WIFE. If these people stopped reading trash tabloids for two seconds and get with reality, they’d see it too.

And you know something? I think Harry is actually the Queens favourite.

Read the words I write

Okay, one more time. People are NOT getting this. Johnny Depp has been found guilty TWICE, in a court of Law, of wife beating. He IS an abuser.

Again, this does not mean, Amber Heard is NOT an abuser. This is isn’t, one cancels the other out. They’re BOTH abusers and they BOTH have been abused.

If you can NOT understand that concept, do NOT talk about it.

This is NOT a case, that will say whether or not Depp is not an abuser. He has already been found GUILTY of being an abuser, TWICE. We all KNOW that Heard abused as well. If you can’t understand the basics of mutual abuse. This is NOT a television show, where you get to determine anything. Everything has already been determined.

Also, Johnny Depp is not going to sleep with you.

This is the last time I am writing about this.

This is not a television episode of Law and Order, this is real life folks. For the love of God, please think about this from a point of view that doesn’t involve you having sex with Johnny Depp. Think about how Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his children was thinking when his text came out as calling her an “extortionist French cunt”, or heck, think about his kids!. He must have known that was coming out. Think about how you would feel if someone you loved, had texted about setting you alight, and burning you alive. Jesus, think about that poor dog, as he shoved it’s head out the window!

This isn’t “hearsay” this is WHY he WAS found guilty, twice, of being a wife beater.

I actually do fear for JD’s life. I think he’s going to go the way of Michael Jackson, Prince, Brittany Murphy. Dying, way before they should have, dying because no one would tell them no.

As it was said in court. Depp was the one turning (or not in some cases) up to work drunk, high, not prepared and not professional, choosing to sue people over fulfilling his contracts. That has nothing to do with Heard, she’s not his keeper. Quiet frankly, she was right in what she said. That she stood up for abuse survivors and she was abused again, by the culture. She was absolutely right. Quiet frankly, there’s a lot of people proving her right.

It’s one of the reasons I don’t want to talk/write about this anymore. No matter the outcome, he’s already established as a wife beater. Depp and Heard are pretty toxic, but I do think that Heard, while not coming out of this smelling of roses. She does appear to be only one who is trying to live a life. Reminder, as well, Depp is the one continuing this. He is STILL trying to control the narrative, and lot of people are letting him.

Not a cult though, totally

I don’t know if you heard the whole who-haa about Rowling not being on the Queen’s Jubilee Lists. But she’s not on it, lol. Neither are a lot of authors that I would have excepted. What it made me do though was to go and look up a few things about authors and books. It’s quiet interesting.

You’d think that Rowling is the only female author to have ever existed.. Not true (though you all know this).

Did you know that Rowling is NOT the top selling female author of all time, and is not even the top children’s authors? Too be fair she is number 2, 3 and 4 for best selling children’s books. She is not top though for either category. For best selling female author of all time, she’s either number 3 or 4.

So, to get off that topic. Who do you think is the actual top selling female author of all time? She is a classic of all time author, still shocked she doesn’t have a novel on the Jubilee List. However, the list seems alright. This author has only been outsold by the Bible (lol) and Shakespeare.

(Answer at the bottom)

Do you know who has sold the most children’s books? Again, probably not who you think it! I thought it was her above, again though, it is not.

(Answer at the bottom)

I wasn’t that into the HP books, and now I refuse to buy anything, even second hand HP. Throughout this whole debacle though. It’s been interesting to see how many people have let her get away with a LOT of horrible things for such a long time. Every day I learn something new about the HP world, and it leaves me going … WTF, haha

Yesterday, as an example, I found out that in the books. Umbridge, is kidnapped by Centaurs and it’s implied she was sexually assaulted. At some point this memory is triggered, by Ron, and he laughs at her. Can you imagine my utter shock when I found this out? lol

So when I see people say that someone like her just suddenly fell to the wrong side. I always ask now when was she actually on the left? What had she actually done to prove that she was “left”. For years now, every time these problems, the lazy racism, the anti-Semitism, she ALWAYS brushed it under the carpet. I don’t think she’s EVER been left leaning, it’s just that, the transphobia, took.

Answer 1) Agatha Christie

Answer 2) The very hungry caterpillar – Eric Carle

It should go without saying…

If you don’t talk to the people actually involved, why are you speaking for them?

Too me, it seems, if you don’t talk to trans people about trans issues, maybe don’t talk or make decisions about them. If you don’t talk to sex workers, don’t talk or make decisions about them.

I’m looking at you UK!

But this does apply generally.

I will write about a example though of when you should sort of debate with yourself, who you should listen to within these groups too.

Debbie Hayton is a trans woman, or not, depending on whether you are a “TRA” or a TERF or Gender Critical. Debbie is a trans woman though, who frequently (meaning all the time) sides with transphobic people. One thing she has said is “trans people are not marginalised, and I am trans!”. Now the problem with this, is one, Debbie is a late tranisitioner. Which in itself is not a problem, plenty of people transition later in life. But the reason for Hayton transitioning later? As she admitted herself, not because she didn’t know she was trans, but to protect her children from bullies.

Now…

If being trans isn’t marginalised, why do you (commendably) need to protect your children?

Like, if there’s no problem with transitioning … Surely you can just do it whenever you want? You wouldn’t need to worry about protecting your children. Take POC, a lot of POC parents have to talk to their children about how to be when they’re confronted by the police.

That’s just common sense, right?

Hayton is one example, by what I mean when I say, actually LISTEN.

A little dream time…

Well, I seem to be going with a theme this week, haha

I went and saw “The Eternals” over the week, and I really did enjoy. Within about 10 minutes of coming out, everyone in the “real world” brought me down, oh my god, they just…I’m living too much in the real world, I need my brain to escape. I don’t go on holidays, and can’t really right now. My brain is too tired to stream at the moment. I NEED that come down after a movie.

Otherwise, I just get annoyed and really annoyed…I can’t think of a better word than annoyed.

I need to live in the fantasy world, of the movie I’ve just seen. Especially when I’ve just seen it and I really enjoyed it. There a few movies, I have to watch on my own. If I’m at someone else’s house, clearly, it doesn’t matter.

  • Lord of the Rings, and to a lesser extent The Hobbit
  • Phantom of the Opera (with Emmy Rossum and Gerard Butler)
  • Moulin Rouge

So, probably not one of the biggest lists in the world.

It is completely weird…but that’s our world…

I participated in a poll last week, where we were asked if we trusted politicians or the media. Media lost, by over half and with 6,000 votes. Is it because we KNOW politicians will always be shifty? Whereas, I think I’m not alone in writing this…I don’t trust the media anymore. I EXPECT, and from the comments, so did others. You expect politicians to be shifty and nasty, even the nice ones. The media is SUPPOSED to be our defense against that.

Another one that I came across was the TERFS. Saying that one trans people want to take and take and take, and have taken everything “sacred” to females…Like if these females want public bathrooms that badly, they can bloody well have them. And yet, they’re confused when people call them “weird TERFs” because they (adults) are talking about complete strangers children’s orgasms, with no medical or health degree on Twitter. THAT IS FREAKING WEIRD! Too sit there publicly talking about how only women have cervices. One, not all women have a cervix, and not only women have one either. I ended up saying “The only difference between TERFs and MRA’S, MRA’s aren’t pretending they’re not obsessed with other’s genitals”.

But then Boris Johnson went and said this…’biology is very important but…’ and said he believed in treating everyone with ‘dignity and respect’.

So now, I’m like…whaaaaaa

The world in generally has just completely lost the plot. It’s a weird world, we’re living in…a mad world…even? The weirdest thing to me, is that the people in charge, like Johnson, Morrison (Australia), the BBC and the ABC. All these people have had jobs during the whole time, during each lockdown, in each country. They were allowed and kept going to work. So it’s weird to see them losing the plot.

My mum, as an example, has been able to work during most of the lockdowns. Has she had said to me previously, nothing really changed for her. But yet you see these Ministers and Journalists, actually working, and had somewhere to go and getting out of their homes during COVID, losing their minds.

The reality of real life is…

…Comedians sometimes become the joke,

No leader in the History of the world has been loved 100% and by all,

Viruses don’t care about your mental health, your job, your family, your friends. Too be fair to the virus, some humans don’t either…That’s a depressing thought, lol

Some people are currently fighting “the Government” (who agree with them), to get outside, just so they can go to another building and sit inside that building, haha…Think Pubs and Clubs. We even had people complaining when they could sit outside a restaurant, because they wanted to be inside the restaurant instead.

Mother Nature can take us all out.

Death and Taxes are real. If you don’t pay your taxes, you can murder, kill, harm, harass and bully others…But if you don’t pay your taxes…They’ll get you!

God…this turned out far more depressing than I originally wanted it to be, lol
