I am SO angry right now! I am going to try and keep this short…There is a sickness hovering over American right now. Until their “Leader” starts condemning “things” like these people…(I would call them potato looking things, but that would be an insult to potatoes)….The cancer will continue to grow! What a shocker all the Trump supporters only focusing on the transgender “issue”…It is NEVER okay to have a group of “adults” making plans to kill and bully children…NEVER! DO YOU HEAR ME! NEVER! NEVER FREAKING EVER!!! I don’t give a crap how you feel about transgender people…Until Fox News, NRA and Trump start condemning these people instead of joining them AGAINST CHILDREN…I don’t want to hear one word about how about the immigration issues are to “protect the children” WHILE YOU ARE BULLYING THEM!!!! There are no “fine people” who threaten to kill children! #Love4Maddie…That was me, keeping it short,lol
I have also decided that I am not going on Facebook for a VERY long time…Why do people keep expecting you to help them…But then do not help you! I am sick of it! No more selfies for Facebook either! What’s the point of doing nothing but selfies? If I wanted that I’d go to Instagram all the time,lol…Not ONE person expressed their outrage at the Maddie situation…Not one! Only two people donated to my Dry July…THEN people who did NOT donate, sent messages saying we had to help them! WTF! I am SO sick of Facebook!
STOP ASKING PEOPLE TO HELP YOU WHEN YOU DO NOT HELP OTHERS!
WordPress is legitimately the ONLY place I really feel like I can discuss actual issues…Other than how gorgeous we so clearly are! We don’t need to take photo after photos to prove anything!
*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.
I think I figured out yesterday after thinking about my post from yesterday (Unexpected). Facebook is just SO toxic and I don’t really understand why. There are a lot of people on there who just want to be “right” with no actual facts, with no compassion and a lot of “the majority think that way, so you’re right” even when a lot of time most of the comments are thinking the opposite way. I have yet to see someone go “You know? Maybe I should (first of all) get all the facts” and “Maybe I should have thought about this more”. I honestly used to feel not “normal” before Facebook came along and since it has, I’ve started to realise that I have a lot of my s#@t together,lol
Nup, it’s all about “Truth hurts!” Although a lot of the time there are no facts whatsoever. Don’t these people just feel…stupid…Why do they do it?
I just don’t think Facebook is for me anymore. Maybe it’s just time for me to spend even more time off of it. I don’t know about anyone else, but are you just bored with it? It feels like a popularity contest, people make judgement with no communication towards the people, even though I still think it’s a great tool for keeping in contact with people. Others just don’t use that way.
Time for reading and exploring and just getting out there! Doing things I actually enjoy doing rather than arguing with stupid people,lol
As a general rule now I skim by a lot of the articles and twitter feeds that are on Facebook these days, because people are just dumb…and they get so comfortable and feel so righteous about everything, it is like people genuinely believe “Well that’s my opinion, so I’m right” and if anyone dares disagree or makes a good point, they should just “shut their traps”. No one wants to discuss things any-more, everyone just wants to be ‘right’.
That quote is what started my rant today. I was looking through some of the posts on Facebook about families who cosplay together and this made me smile, until I got to a picture of a mother and her two daughters dressed pretty much like Michelle Pfieffer “Catwoman”. One guy decided to write that he thought it was wrong to dress the little girls like “tramps”. A whole bunch of women (which lets be honest, is rare) started to defend the mother and her choice and saw nothing wrong with the outfits. I wasn’t going to say anything until I saw this guy write about how these ladies should “shut their traps” and how he “read comics” so we couldn’t argue with him?
This guy is the exact example of why I, and a lot of my female friends, will NOT date nerds and geeks! As a general rule they are the worst, every nerd and geek that I have dated has treated me horribly. A great example of this is when I got out of an abusive relationships within a particularly nerdy group where I got bullied and hit by my ex-partners room-mate. As sometimes happens I had a one night stand with a guy (after we broke up)…Fast forward a week later I wake up to be publicly humiliated on Facebook by a group of guys “slut-shaming” me because how dare I have a one night stand and not date their “good guy” friend instead. God knows I want to get back into a group who think publicly humiliating a girl over something that isn’t any of their business and thinks that this is a really good idea to get their own way.
Funnily enough I don’t have anything to do with those guys any-more. Yet they still insist that they are a bunch of “good guys”. GOOD GUYS do NOT publicly humiliate people over things that are NONE of their business. A good guy would have gone and asked me why I had the one night, since I had never one before and it was completely out of character for me. I’ve seen a bunch of them who are over 30 humiliate a bunch of teenagers on Facebook because the teenagers didn’t agree with them.
Now I know that not all “nerds and geeks” are like this, but it seems to me the one that’s are completely into whatever their genre is in the gaming world, they seem to be the worse. If they have other interests or other friendship groups outside of the gaming world, they seem to be a lot better. A great example of this is the guy who all the other guys wanted me to date, by humiliating me. The actual guy started a hairdressing course and is friends with really lovely girls, he has since apologised and we are great friends. However, the guys who actually humiliated me are all still doing the same things and still acting and reacting in the same way. Literally nothing has changed.
I have been volunteering at the Library I am currently volunteering at for nearly two years now and I just found out recently that another whole group of my classmates were hired for actual casual work within this Library, even though they came after me.
This was probably the 5th group of casuals that have been hired since I started volunteering there. As you can imagine this was the last straw for me.
So this time instead of “letting it go” I decided to ask them if there was anything that they could tell me, were they able to give me some honest feedback? According to them I’m not doing anything wrong (they would have let me know by now if I was) I just hadn’t sent in my application in again since March. Which I’m struggling a little with since I sent them an updated resume in December, when I obtained my new employment…But whatever…
The reason for this Blog today is though, I was completely pleasant while making noise and making sure that they know that I am there and I will not be ignored and I will not be going away. With no need to be aggressive.
So stand up for yourself, if it’s something that you want (in my case working in this Library would be the ultimate career and the ultimate work location too) go for it! Sometimes they may genuinely not know that you are even there! You don’t need to be aggressive or nasty, but go for it!
Stand Up and make some noise! Let them know that you are there!
The quote for this week isn’t actually from a well known author or a well known character…This is a quote that I thought of a couple of days ago while I was volunteering and it just resonated with my situation this week =)
“Very seldom does the right thing to do, feel like the right thing to do, and is usually the very last thing that you want to do”
