2020…The year that common sense, went on a holiday

I’m getting to this point where I feel like I am saying to GROWN ADULTS…This is just common sense, right?…A lot…

I don’t consider myself a highly intelligent person. I have do consider myself to be reasonably sane and thoughtful though.

However, I am constantly stumped by others, especially on social media. As an example, take that Rowling “letter” that…well honestly…I don’t know the point of it. However, I find it ridiculous! It’s not a letter calling for violence on the internet to stop against everyone, it’s all for ONE person. Yet, myself and my friends, both male and females, daily receive threats. Where’s our letter? By the way, by the same people who say you shouldn’t do it towards, Rowling, but you know…Perfectly fine for everyone else. This is literally happening daily to us.

Then there was my post from yesterday/earlier today…I decided to create this picture.

The above picture is of the police officer about two weeks ago. The below picture of “tank man” China, in the 80’s. How is the officer’s actions happening in 2020, when they weren’t even doing it in China, in the 80’s! If that behavior wasn’t acceptable then, why is it now?

I am also starting to find that both Trump supporters and the Rowling cult, use the exact same arguments for their own cause. Yet, they apparently don’t like each other. They all blame other people for taking away things, that are not even being taken away. I literally had a “conversation” today, where the ‘women’ was saying that British women and Afghan/Pakistan women have the SAME reproductive burdens. Who else would use that “argument”. Oh black people in America are treated the same as white people, there are no privilege’s.

Their arguments being that, two completely cultures, suffer the same things…No, we don’t. As an example, a lot of Western women CHOOSE not to have children, where as Afghanistan and Pakistan women, don’t GET that choice. How someone would think we all have the same kind of “burdens” When we so CLEARLY do not.

And NOW apparently Trump cares about Covid19, because, even though I don’t believe it. Just before the election he get’s it? Common sense would dictate that the YEARS of lying from Trump and the GOP. I don’t blame people for nothing believing that he never had it. I don’t believe he had it.

As the year goes on, I swear something happened last year, that made something or “someone” go…Let’s see how crap and crazy we can make the human race. What frustrates me is that if people actually STOP and thought about what they were saying/writing, for more than a second. They’d be able to see it!

Clearly, there are more personal things in the day to day life, but they are the big topics of the “day”.

I feel like I’m currently in the same state of being all the time at the moment.

Do some people think anymore?

So, I went on Twitter.

JKRowling has signed a letter, basically to say that the “cancel culture” is ridiculous. I mean, she just wants to cancel transpeople altogether, and uses her massive platform to do so. But yeah, people who are calling her out for her bigotry are the ones with problem? Her whole tweet was about how their should be freedom of thought and speech.

There is, you dumb ass…You can say whatever you want.

It does not mean, you get a free pass. It does not mean that no one can say anything to you. It does mean that calling you out on your bigotry, people are debating you. In fact, the point of opposition and debate, is for people to talk who don’t agree. Debate is not talking with people who agree with you.

The interesting thing I saw in the comments though, was the amount of Brexiteers and Trump Supporters. Now, too me, that would make me go “Oh, I’ve gone and stuffed up” I doubt that Rowling thinks that.

That’s what frustrates me though, people just don’t THINK anymore. They say something without thinking about it. There were so many Trump Supporters who were saying they apologise for the extreme left. We don’t need the far-right deplorable’s to apologise for us, being able to accept people. If by being “extreme” means you can accept people, then call me…

Do these “people” like JKRowling ever just THINK, maybe if she wasn’t being so horrible, then she wouldn’t be “cancelled?”. I didn’t want to see Magic Beasts with Depp, I certainly wont be seeing, if they do bring out another.

Do they even see the irony of yelling “Freedom”? While literally trying to cancel and get rid of a whole group of people, because they don’t like them. One person who said that transpeople should not allowed to be, a comment supporting them said and I quote “She’s not saying they can’t be who they want to be”. Which is LITERALLY what she was saying, it is literally what she is trying to stop them for being. How is that not saying that people can’t be who they want too be?

QUESTIONS:

Are you more a thinker or a doer? (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove for this one)

Definitely more of a thinker, in fact, one may say that I over think.

Why is beauty associated with mortality?

I actually have no idea. I guess it’s because it’s a reminder of what we are getting closer too? Although I know of some people who’ve been going grey their whole lives. It’s a sad thing to say but we can go at anytime, we’re just really lucky if we get to stay here a while.

If everyone spoke their mind (told the literal truth), would this world be a better place?

I feel like a lot more people do that these days and look how well that’s going. The funny thing is, Republicans thinks a lot of us “lefties” are holding back. They are right to an extent, but I think I can do better than them. I don’t have to REALLY tell them what I think about them…They know. I can still be polite and insult,lol.

Can religious beliefs affect scientific thinking?

I’m sort of iffy with this question. At this time, Australia is divided between the science and faith. Some may say that to do science is to have a kind of faith. Faith that your ideas, theories and experiments will work. Whatever “it” is. I don’t think you can have one without the other, they will always “collide” together.

I just love this song. It really is actually helping me to “calm down”.

Nurt Thursday – Think/Australian Reading Hour

Nurture Thursday

positive thought

I unfortunately nearly had a panic attack a couple of nights ago. I was able to calm my thoughts and I fell asleep without any problems. When I woke up in the morning, although I was so upset that it had happened. I was proud of myself that I was able to calm my mind., without needing any drugs.That, I held onto all day.

Practice Mindfulness.

Now, the reason I have put this together with the Australian Reading Hour is because I think that reading (especially our favourite novels) can help us to think and imagine. Imagine and think what we would like ourselves to be. It almost “perfect” that these two go together SO well on the same day.

Ladies! Listen Up!

What is it lately with the ladies? Every time I see a women come forward about their experiences with assault. The majority of people who attack these people after they have come forward…are women?

What is up with that?!

I feel lately that I’ve been posting this in a lot of these “women” comments. I’m sure some of you have seen this:

Art Exhibit Powerfully Answers the question “What were you wearing?”

Too break it down. The Exhibit shows the clothes of women (not sure if there are guys in the exhibit) who were raped and what they were wearing at the time. You’ll probably find that the majority of the time it’s by a friend or someone you know, and you’re not wearing anything sexy at all. All the women I know, that’s exactly what happened. I think only one was raped by someone she didn’t know, but she was wearing a school uniform.

So what’s up ladies, why the hating? I think most of my readers don’t think this way, but I would love to know why other women attack other women and ask the question “What were you wearing? See the twitter feed below to see what I mean: (Will warn you first…Trump supporters here). You’ll probably notice that most of the “attackers” ARE women.

I just recently got into an argument with a lot of women who were standing up for Aziz Anir…Now I believe he didn’t realise that the woman was uncomfortable, but it was absolutely shocking to me how many women were saying “She could have just left”. Do these woman know nothing at all? The thing that were making me saddest about the comments are that men are finally getting it. Maybe just maybe if women weren’t so fearful of being killed…They could just have the strength to leave.

Men are killing thousands of women a year for saying No

The Core Value

31. Core Value

My core value…This one has been such an interesting one to think/write about, because I think that I have a few different types on core values depending on the situation.

The one that I think I think is most true to my core value though is to just be kind. I have done so many tests about your personality where they ask about what do you value most. They are usually something like Kindness, Honesty, Humour, and something else, but I always chose kindness. I feel with kindness comes all those kinds of responsibility. Generally I find that if you are just kind to others, the other values just kind of come naturally.

By kindness to me that incorporates everything from physically helping others to just sitting and listening to someone. Even when they are saying something that you don’t necessarily agree with, but they seem to need to get off their chest. Sometimes the reward that comes with that as well is to finally understand why someone thinks that way they do.

Apples and Oranges

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 

Getting started

This is for all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers…At the moment I have two casual jobs and while I enjoy both of them I am just not making enough money. I’m making enough to “survive” and luckily my partner and my mum charge me rent/bills on a percentage of what I make, rather than a set amount.

As I mentioned before I really do enjoy where I’m working at both places, I am really lucky that all my co-workers are lovely people and even with that one expected customer that’s always causing trouble. The work is good too, not to difficult that I just can’t do it, but keeps me busy and my mind off other things. Some weeks though I just don’t get the shifts, which when you’re a casual means, you get paid…well…nothing.

So this is where all my drawing/artist/creative type readers/Home Business followers come into play. I want to do something from home where I can make money as well. I love doing little crafty things and I would love to make a little business of bits and bobs. However, I have no idea where to start. So I was hoping that someone could give me ideas of any web pages or any sites that are good for people who want to get started, what sites are good to sell on, any legal information I may need. I was thinking of making things like:

  • Themed candles as well as just random scented
  • Handmade cards for all occasions
  • Flowery headbands

The Thinker
“The Thinker” created by Le Penseur

I am writing a couple of stories and am even writing what I call “script ideas” for a tv show for a role playing game that I used to play and I would love to be able to draw. I am a very visual person, but I am honestly also too lazy to learn how to draw properly. I can start and try, but I’d probably never get to the point where I could sell the art. The writing is mainly for myself and I’m not sure that I have to confidence to try and sell the ideas to someone either…It makes me feel kind of sad too at the same time as well. Who doesn’t want to be the next J.K. Rowling?

Making an a55 out of you and me

“You should never assume. You know what happens when you assume. You make an ass out of you and me because that’s how it’s spelled.” Ellen DeGeneres

 One thing I have noticed lately about people having discussion is that there is a lot of assuming going on.

  • Assuming that people have had the same education as you
  • Assuming people just “should know”.
  • Assuming that people have had the same life experiences as you, so should just “know.
  • Assuming because someone doesn’t have the same background as you, they don’t “know”.

Did you know?

  • Only half of the worlds populations even has the Internet. Asia has the highest amount of users, Europe is second. That one shocked me! Internet World Stats. My country isn’t even in the Top 20. (2016)
  • Some researchers believe that by 2015-2016 2 billion people will have a computer or a smart phone.
  • 774 million people around the world can’t even read. Good Reading Magazine January 2017.
