Just a random list of terms that bigots like to use to gaslight and upset people.
- The one in the heading “fake news” – There’s either the truth or a lie.
- Which brings me too “alternative facts”. – No such thing as a “alternative fact”. It is or isn’t.
- “Biological Sex is real” Now this one is a little more complicated. This is generally used as a way to say there are only two sexes.
Some people call the sex we’re assigned at birth “biological sex.” But this term doesn’t fully capture the complex biological, anatomical, and chromosomal variations that can occur. Having only two options (biological male or biological female) might not describe what’s going on inside a person’s body.Planned Parenthood – sex-gender-identity
The best term to use, is “assigned sex” at birth.
- A lot of people say “Science”, but what they mean is Twitter Science. The thing with Science is, because Science is about learning and exploring too. Science is never “really” set. I find that a lot of people who say, and are being bigots “It’s just Science” It’s actually not.
- “They’re just words” Then why is it when people use words they don’t like, it’s harmful, it abuse. When they do it it’s always “just words”. Whenever someone says “They’re just words, they have no impact”. I point them in the direction of the Jan 6th insurrection, where the majority of those who died, were Trump Supporters. I also remind them that the Nazi’s didn’t start with the gas chambers, they also started with words. It’s called propaganda.
What terms have you heard of, that don’t actually mean what the person says they do, or they the person saying it doesn’t see their own projection of those words?
I mainly want too write about the disgusting term “trans widows”. However, I do want too write about in general how bigots really need to start thinking about what they’re writing and/or saying.
Too start off with I was inspired to write this post because the amount of terfs that were trying to belittle a actual widow, was completely gross. Then to say to people like me, I was gaslighting and being abusive. Because I was pointing out the differences between a actual widow and a trans “widow”. Infuriated me. Still does.
Is it just me, or do people keep thinking they can just say whatever they say, with no one else saying anything? I blame Trump, lol
Watching these trans widows, with some even actually saying that their pain was WORSE, to a actual widow!
I was sitting there completely dumb founded. I know Trump Supporters were and some are still bad, but damn some how these TERFs are much more worse!
I just don’t understand how anyone can think these ways? Like what possessed a human being to not only call themselves a “widow” for anything, when they are not. And then dog pile onto a actual widow and saying how their pain in valid. Their pain is valid, but calling yourself a “widow” when your ex is very much alive, is beyond disgusting.
What if, say, in 10 years, even next year than trans “widow” is getting along with their ex? What then? I just can’t imagine being so disrespectful.
Like this happened about two weeks ago, and I am still pissed about it.
As someone whose actually had to deal with narcissistic and toxic friends/family members and how it just drains you, makes you angry and stop believing in yourself. How dangerous a narcissistic person actually is. I’m finding it really offensive that people are just throwing around terms like “narc” and “fraud” when talking about Meghan Markle. We literally do not know her. Does anyone else find it offensive?
This or That? #93
This week Bookmark Chronicles (and myself) would like to know:
This week I want to know…….
Have you ever found a typo (or typos) in books?
I have to say that I have and I found them even with my favourite authors and some of my favourite books. Also like Bookmark Chronicles I understand that people make mistakes and even technology can as well. I have also noticed sometimes when I purchase books that are written by American authors, sometimes their English is different from ours and that their terms have been left in. For example:
Colour vs Color
aluminium vs aluminum
biscuit vs cookie,cracker
Just a few examples.
