Watching American Republicans, how they’ve treated the Officers that were protecting Government Officials. How they’ve treated January the 6th, in general, where people actually died. The majority of who were Trump Supporters. Which such “blindness” (I am going to have to think of a better word).
That Republicans don’t even care about other Republicans, let alone anyone else.
I can’t help but think that the once great self-proclaimed “Christian Country”, isn’t that Christian after all. Sadly.
However, maybe it is time to give it back to the native peoples!
It might even be time to look at “getting rid” of the two party system.
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.
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.
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”.
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?
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.
Attitude of Gratitude
If you’d like to, share some gratitude in photo, written form or song.
I just love this song. It really is actually helping me to “calm down”.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?”.
