I’m missing you

This isn’t necessarily about a person or passed on animal/pet baby.

Over the last couple of years, things that I didn’t even realise people were about. Haven’t just proven they are about, but also, go the horrible extreme, of making me want to literally throw up.

I started to think about this, when a couple of people I’m friends with, had to end friendships over the Depp thing. Because it wasn’t just that they took Depp’s side, it was more that they admitted to knowing Depp IS an abuser, but they thought Heard deserved it. And I have people in my life, who I think, because of their attitudes over the last couple of years. I don’t trust, that that’s exactly what they’re thinking too.

It’s pretty disturbing.

I think of the fact that I’ve “lost” family members over their transphobia and Toryism.

I think of the facts, that people/family I used to have fun with and had huge respect for. I don’t trust them anymore. Not with their COVID misinformation. Not with their not believing the mental health of Meghan Markle.

I miss things like: kindness, respect, common sense … and honestly … people just thinking, instead of reacting. I miss people understanding the difference between an opinion and a fact.

And I would blame social media, but they’re all adults. With people like me (haha) in their family.

Death *insert creepy music here*

I have a *theme* people for this week, lol.

I have a saying “If you want to be respected in death, be respectful in life”. Madgelna Burns was transphobic, racist and anti-semantic, she was pretty much the female equivalent of Rush Limbaugh. Yet, any time a pro-trans person brings up what she did or quote her, we’re the ghouls?

I’ve always found this “love the horrible when they were alive dead people” thing, odd.

You are under absolutely no obligation to “respect” the dead. You don’t have to show up for them. The only I do, is when they die, is not say a thing. After about 3-6 months, they are “game” again. And always remember if you call someone a ghoul, for quote tweeting someone. What does that say about the person who actually said it?

It’s your life, if you want to spend it whining about what a horrible dead person, might think of you repeating what they said. If it makes you feel any better, I doubt they honestly care. They’re not going to “come back” from the dead, and have at go at you for repeating what they said. Seems like a waste of a life if you ask me.

Respect

I am just going to start off this post with saying I lost a LOT of respect for a LOT of people over Harry and Meghan Markle. I generally don’t make comments I don’t know a lot about. Except in cases of bigotry, cause quiet frankly any bigots obsession’s with any bigotry tells me all I NEED to know about them.

Like, without a doubt in my mind, we can all say that Trump and Rowling have a narcissism issue. I actually called her a raging sociopathic narcissist the other day, after I listed everything she’s done, or rather NOT done, for women, to a transphobic person, lol. I actually got really depressed writing that list, she really is a terrible person, whose been able to hide behind her writing. I’m going to write about it, but then that should be my last Rowling specific post, unless she apologise’s.

What has annoyed me a lot about the whole H&M situation though, is those same people, have not said a word about Andrew. You know, the sex trafficking “Prince” who can’t sweat. Some of these same people don’t even know that he lost all his titles, and not willingly, unlike Harry.

How can these people not see how they are the problem?

It’s Pride Month in the UK. And currently more and more people are dropping out of the Tory’s UK Government “It’s safe to be me” conference. Especially AFTER the EHRC ( and after months of wasting time with banning conversion therapy) Will ban it, but only if trans people are still forced to participate in conversion therapy. But you know it’s totally safe to be you in the UK.

You can have a say here (until the 4th of Feb).

HOW CAN I SHARE MY THOUGHTS?

Under the current Tory Government, so far this has happened.

  • The current Tory party, like that actual party.
  • The UK now being described that same AS unfriendly LGBTQIA places: such as Hungary, North Korea and the Ukraine.
  • Most Tories voted AGAINST (including previous EHRC “chair” Lis Truss) feeding the children of the UK. After the Tories COVID stuff ups.
  • Brexit…Just like the whole of Brexit (which Liz Truss is now part of that disaster).

One of the things that I am very thankful for in Australia, we’ve had our states leaders really taking care of each of their own states. Although our state leader has now made a huge stuff up, because he listened to his Federal Leader, instead of being proud of the hard work that South Australians have put in. Generally Australia did well, because we DIDN’T listen to our current Federal Leader, Scummo.

I honestly don’t know how he even got in, in the first place. He’s a sales man, not a leader of a Country. I don’t know how so many Australians voted him in. Personally, I blame QLD, lol.

#BanConversionTherapy

You’d think after Trump…

After COVID, Rittenhouse, after George Floyd and BLM, more people would understand that you CAN’T change a bigots mind.

Doesn’t matter how polite you are, or how rude you are. You just can’t. There are just to many platforms, and powerful people with the resources to stop, but they choose not to get involved, or they just sit back and let it flourish.

It’s like that saying, you earn respect, it’s just not given to you. That’s how I choose to see bigots. If you choose to constantly spread lies, propaganda and misinformation about groups, and no one does anything to stop it. Me being “polite” wont change that, lol. Everyone keeps telling me that I need to be polite to these bigots. Now I have seen these people be polite to bigots, and what happens? Nothing, absolutely nothing. They don’t change their minds, they just use your own posts to spread their bigotry’s further.

Let me put it into a simple perspective. We began to realise that people like Trump and Rowling were getting “We loves you”, at least every 5 minutes, whenever they tweeted something on Twitter sometimes it would be every two minutes. TWO people are getting “I love yous” said to them, more in ONE tweet, than most people will hear during an entire life time. You think they’re going to “change their minds” to eradicate groups of people with that aphrodisiac? You have to be a VERY self-confident person to reject that, and bigots are not. That’s why their bigots, they fear easily.

Respect is earned … Unpopular opinion

I am going to be honest, I am a little over the whole you have to respect dead people. If the dead people wanted to be respected, maybe they should have been respectful in life? I wont say things, because I don’t know who might be hurt. But I am sure as hell not going to be quiet either when someone says we should be respectful towards dead people.

Hitler’s dead, do I have to be nice about him?

Like bugger off.

If someone was a kind person while they were alive, go for it. But why should I give respect to someone dead, who didn’t give respect to others while they were alive?

It’s a weird concept too me.

I almost get when someone horrible dies, that the people they hurt, might do something weird, like my Nanna did with my Poppa. They HATED each other and my Poppa was abusive. When he died though, she wouldn’t stop saying what a great man he was…

I got it, to begin with. However, once everything had settled down, she was still saying it. It was almost like because their lives were so entwined for a long time. She actually did feel lost without him. I get it, I get that.

When someone like Rush Limbaugh died, I didn’t get it. He was a horrible human being, too everyone. And people were saying stupid stuff like “Oh you’re just jealous, because he’s going to heaven before you” My literal response was every single time “If he’s going to Heaven, I’ll go to Hell thank you very much”.

Questions:

Do guns protect people or kill people?  Or both?

Guns kill. Too me, that’s the whole function of a gun. It’s there to kill, whether it’s because you’re hunting an animal, or shooting at an intruder. The point of a gun is too kill. Even if you’re shooting at an intruder to protect your family, and you shoot and they die. They still died. The gun didn’t talk to the intruder to put it on a better path. They’re dead…Stone cold dead. You may shoot at someone to protect your family, but that gun that you are shooting at another human being with, can still kill them. That’s what they’re for…To kill.

Is it more important to be respected or liked?

Respected.

Is having a big ego a negative or  positive trait?  (yeah I know.  Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)

Sometimes it could be a positive trait, a big ego, you think you’re unstoppable. I do think there’s a difference between a huge ego and a narcissistic personality disorder though. I think there’s actually nothing wrong with a big ego, as long as you’re not harming others with it,lol

Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning? 

I love the movie “The Mummy” and one of the quotes in there is when Imhotep says “Death in only the beginning”. I think it is, to an extent. I do think that there are such things as Guardian Angels, Angels, rebirth. I do believe that we come here to learn lessons, and then far later on we are reborn as someone else. That’s why I believe in soul mates. I believe that we meet certain people, in each life.

It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have.   Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing.   So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please!  Do share!  Thanks!   🙂

We’re waxing philosophical in our questions today:

  1. Can we ever experience anything objectively?  Why or why not?  (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise):  Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions). I think we definitely can. I think sometimes, depending on the circumstances, it can be hard or easy. I think it also can depend on how you were brought up. Yeah, it can definitely done be done. I think at the moment, it’s a bit harder to do. I had a conversation with someone today where because Trump said he wasn’t aware of the “phone call”. Then it must be true. So I showed him a whole lot of articles showing where Trump lied, including one today that involved Apple. So he may not be the most objective when it comes to telling the truth.
  2. Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul? I think we do all have a soul. Including animals. I’m not necessarily religious, but I do believe we all have a soul.
  3. Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”) I actually have no idea. I’ve been around some really horrible people who’ve passed away, or like famous “paedophiles, murderers” etc. When they die, people suddenly have a bad word to say? I don’t understand it personally. My mama did teach me though, “when you’ve got nothing nice to say, say nothing at all” So while others may speak well, I just try not to say anything.
  4. Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.  Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating.  While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence. I honestly just miss seeing a kind leader. I see someone like Jacinda Arden and I can’t help but think “What went so wrong everywhere else?”

QUESTIONS:

Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?

You know, I have no idea why. Someone can be this really horrible person and yet when they die, people insist on only talking about the good things they had done. Except for the people who had nothing to do them with anymore when they had died. In a way it’s a good thing, because just because they were horrible, doesn’t mean we are. If that makes sense?lol

Why is beauty associated with morality?  Or not?   (a few weeks back I asked a similar question, but the key word was MORTALITY, not MORALITY).  

I know a lot of people like to do this. But it can also depend on the person, like how some people dislike Michelle Obama, a really wonderful person. Whereas they think Melania is really gorgeous, despite her face being stuck in the same position and joining in with her husbands bitherism.

I absolutely adore Michelle Obama and to me that makes her beautiful. I literally cannot fathom what “beauty” people see in Melania, she’s not a beauty to me, at all. I used to feel sorry for her and could see a sad beauty in her, but once she wore that jacket…She could get lost for all I cared and whinged “I’m the most bullied person in the world”. I even thought her birtherism comments were because all she had in America, was Trump. Nope, I think she’s just generally an ugly person, how else can you explain her getting married to Trump to begin with?

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?

Oh, they definitely can do that! It’s all about learning about a nice balance.

Is there a perfect life?  What’s your version of a perfect life if you care to share?

I don’t think there is a “perfect life”. I think that there are definitely perfect moments though.

If you’d like, please share something uplifting or for which you are grateful.

Respect

Recently I got into a “discussion” on The Fitness Marshall Instagram page (love him) He is kissing his partner near the lawn of the White House and said “Here you go Pence” or something similiar…Oh my god…The haters! People who follow him, they know he’s gay, calling him disrespectful.

One of them they said though “Pence hasn’t changed anything to the LGBT (which is true, he’s done nothing…because he actually can’t). Also though they said “Just because Pence doesn’t agree with you, doesn’t mean he doesn’t respect you”. Which would normally I would totally agree. You don’t have to agree with someone to respect them.

HOWEVER

When someone is actively trying to make your life harder, try to make Laws that forbid you from getting married, trying to put Laws into place that make it easier for people to discriminate against you. Laws that make it virtually impossible for you to adopt…That is NOT respect.
