I just wanted to state to those who may question this, Feminism is not a cancer! You are not dying or died from Lorde saying:
“Hey, men – do me and yourselves a favour, and don’t underestimate my skill,”
First, I am pretty sure that Lorde was directing this at certain men or a particular man in her life. Second, I’ve always believed if someone’s comment affects you personally, (especially those of people you don’t actually know) maybe you should ask yourself why? Personally I have never been affected by the words of someone I don’t know and haven’t done anything too.
The thing I hate is people comparing Feminism to Cancer, when it’s not a suitable comparison and is disrespectful to people who are fighting cancer, or those who have lost loved ones as a direct result of cancer. No one…man or woman…died or died slowly, or had to go a hospice or had their body quickly deteriorate, because of Lorde and her words. Especially if you are taking a complete strangers words and take them personally. That’s your ego hurting, not cancer. True Feminism wants equality between men and women, that’s the point of it. You can’t have that if you hate either gender, that’s not equality. That would be superiority.
Yes, there are women out there who probably do actually hate men and want women to be superior. We are human after all and I think every group will always have it’s extremist. The majority of women however truly just want equality. When you want to see negative things, guess what? You find them. IF you are looking for something bad or good, you will find what you are looking for.
Next time someone writes something, actually stop, breathe and think “Do these words affect me at all? Why do they?”.
STOP, BREATHE AND THINK
I have been struggling this week to think of anything to Blog about, except for some set posts. Mentally, I’m done…I have not been looking forward to this week, bad shifts, having to sign up too things because, even though I have TWO jobs…I am pretty much making NO money.
So let’s chats then…
What do we do when we hit struggle town, what do we do to get ourselves back into the groove again? I don’t know if it’s because this past week and this future week have been kind of stressful. Not anything horrible, things I have almost been expecting but not wanted to happen…But they have. I am finally at the point where I am “This is It”…I have to start all those dreams now, no one else is going to help me. I have two jobs and yet very little money coming in, so now I have to start studying a business admin course online, just to make others happy.
But I have to have the money to start those dreams, and then were do you start? Which dream do you start with, do I try and finish off a book that I’ve been writing for 5 years, do I start a craft online business?
I want to start living my life, I need it to start…I feel very stood still…
I need some inspiration!
I guess that this post isn’t exactly what you would call “Magical” but please read!
As you will read this in the country of Borneo trees that produce Palm Oil are currently (and mostly) being burnt down illegally. This means that wild animals such as Orangutans and the Sumtarian Tigers homes and land are being burnt and Orangutan rescue/orphanages are becoming increasingly in the way of the burning fires.
