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?

 

Slow…

Sometime I am little late to the plate, so to speak.

For the whole of pretty much the whole of Pride month. I had to keep telling people that there is actual Science that says certain people are born with more gay genetics/DNA. It’s just fact…And we all know how much Conservatives love to say “Facts don’t care about your feelings”.

It’s only just occurred to me though. They are just so gosh darn insistent that it’s not something you are born with. Why is that? Why are they not happy, that if it’s something you are born with, you’d think by the time they reached adulthood, they’d know? Then I had just this most random thought. Do you think, they actually believe you can “catch gay”? Which is why they are so insistent you can’t be born gay? If they tell themselves it’s “lifestyle” and not something your born with…They’re safe?

They can’t “catch it”.

Is that why they are so worried, because they clearly have hidden feelings?

Plain & Simple Questions:

What do fish do all day?   What thoughts do you think they have?  (Credit to the awesome Teresa and her Fibbin’ Fridays for this one)

I think that they think about swimming, maybe a little eating…whatever those particular fish eat. Maybe a little fooling around, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

What celebrity would you have as a SPOUSE, if you HAD to choose?

If he wasn’t gay and I wasn’t taken. I’m not actually sure if he is? He’s very private…This gentleman below:

What’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever broken?

I don’t know if it was even expensive, but when I was little my Grandparents had a large Michelangelo’s statue. Yes, in all his glory, but that’s not what I saw. I used to go up to him and give him a hug (when I was little) I’d talk to him. One time when I went up to hug him, i hugged him a little too hard and he fell over…he broke. I’m not exactly sure if it was hugely expensive, but it felt, it might have been.

When was the last time you slept more than 9 hours in a stretch?  Why?

Generally the last time I slept more than 9 hours, I was not feeling well. I keep finding that if I sleep for a long time, I get a really sore back. So no more huge sleep ins for me.


An Attitude of Gratitude!

Share something you were really grateful for this year (so far):

I just got a cold yesterday, my partners been trying to care of me as well. As well as he can,lol

Nurt Thurs – All That Matters

Nurture Thursday – All That Matters

I’m going to be honest…When I first saw this title the first thing that I thought of was Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”.

In all honesty, as long as YOU feel safe and happy, that’s all that’s matters. That can mean anything, if you feel happy and safe in your job, health, food, social…As soon as you feel safe and happy in a particular area…THAT’S what matters. It will make you think more positively happy.

If your five year old self woke up in your current body, what would happen, what would you say?

I think, in all honesty, I would probably become very scared and want my Mum or my Dad. I think I would just be crying. I think that it would have completely freaked me out.

What is a relationship deal breaker for you?  Whether you are talking about a romantic one, a friendship or a related to sort of relationship?

If your cruel, especially for no reason. By cruel I mean if your homophobic, racists and you threaten people. If you harm animals or have no problems with animals that are tortured. (That one makes me suspicious of everyone though)

Is there something out there, a thought, an idea, a current event, or a fear that you find deeply unsettling?

Trump…Everything that Trump embodies.

And one that is a bit whimsical:

There are some songs out there, mainly Celtic, where no matter where I am I feel the need to dance and become an Elf,lol…Sometimes on the bus, especially if I’m already in a good mood. I have been known to start swaying on the bus to the music. If I could live in the world of JRR Tolkien, I would. Once a year I try and watch all the films, but by myself.

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

I’m not sure to be honest. They will probably think I’ve done something stupid, but nothing serious.

Finally

What were you grateful for this week?  Something that brought some joy into your world?

It has been such a pleasant week, not dramas. I’ve been really interesting conversations all week too, they’ve been very pleasant. Saturday and the whole burning ceremony was SO therapeutic. Exactly what the Doctor ordered. I think burning the words did, indeed, help.

I AM NOT A HORRIBLE PERSON!

Happy??? World Philosophy Day!

What even is Philosophy?

Thinking Omg GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Philosophy (from Greek φιλοσοφία, philosophia, literally “love of wisdom.

Simply, Philosophy is how we think about the World, the Universe and Society. Its about questioning our very existence, with thought. The ideas with Philopsopy are generally general and can be quiet abstract.

I consider myself to be an uneducated Philosopher. Mainly because I have never been to school to pass a course for it. Sometimes my emotions and my brain exploding for not being able to understand certain people and situations. I tend to not be able to think “Why”.

Being a philosopher though is something that I’ve always wanted to achieve. Not necessarily to get a Certificate to show that I’ve passed a course. Just in my own mind, being able to discuss important things with no emotions and calmly.

Some of the most famous Philosophers are:

  • Plato (Founder and Teacher of Aristotle)
  • Aristotle
  • Socrates
  • Sigmund Freud
  • Henry David Thoreau
  • Laozi
  • Confucious
  • Ayn Rand (so few women and I don’t really like her)
  • Voltaire

Warrior or Worrier?

When I first started to get bad anxiety more consistently badly, I went to a hypnotherapist whose first question to me was “Are you a Worrier or a Warrior”?

Then when I went to my most recent therapy session, it came up again. Not that exact question, but why do I worry so much? I had to question, why do I worry so much, especially about things and situations I can’t control?

Then I nearly got hit by a car as I was thinking about it from my appointment.

Even though I had nearly gotten hit by a car, I hadn’t been hit by the car. Just in that moment, I got a few seconds of feeling what it felt like not to worry. It was wonderful!

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.

Mindfulness

Too be completely honest with you all, when I first heard of “Mindfulness” I thought it was something to do with day dreaming.

I was clearly wrong…

Mindfulness is learning the ability to be present in the present moment. So when you have a anxiety moment/or moments. You are able to train and discipline yourself to calm yourself. Be in the moment.

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment,[1][2][3] which one can develop through the practice of meditation and through other training. – Wikipedia (Mindfulness)

Mindfulness is about being present in the moment.

Some ideas on how to help being in the moment:

  • Understand when you first start to practice Mindfulness, you are not an expert. Expect to get distracted still.
  • Concentrate on what’s happening around you – Noises, smells
  • Try and not be judgmental about what you see, smell.
  • Notice what is in your immediate vicinity. How do your fingers feel on the surface your sitting on.

Do not worry if you start to drift off, and you don’t necessarily want to have a complete blank mind.

Being Aware, in that moment.

My Mama is smart =D

My mum and I have right ole’ gossip and biotching session while we’re in the car. One thing she brought up was that she agrees that the PC Culture is over the top at the moment … BUT … BUT …  it’s a very big BUT …

But it’s because the alt-right have taken to that level.

You take Alex Jones as a good example. Tries to go around smearing the names of parents who have lost children in the shootings,causing them to move nearly 7 times! They decided that they’ve had enough and he decides to sue them for HIS legal fees? Hey, dude! If you weren’t smearing people’s names you wouldn’t have those issues, would you…”genius”. It’s not even about attacking parents who lost children, it’s just going out of your way to smear anyone, causing them to have constantly move…Knowing FULL WELL what your supporters are doing.

Trump pretty much just handing over America to the Russians. Let alone those t-shirts that read “I’d choose a Russian over a Democrat”…Go live there then, if you think Russia is so fantastic! Why Russian anyway? The irony being of course, we all know that they couldn’t actually survive there.

Then there’s the sudden increase in African American…children…Having the police called on them by white folk. There is no way these people do not know about Tamir Rice. That even made the Australian news! I’ll have to find the video, but I heard this really good point made. Listen up racist white folk…When you make that call because of an “annoyance”, knowing full well about Tamir Rice. You are saying loud and “proud” that you, because of an “annoyance”, you are fully prepared to put that child’s life at risk. Simply because you’re “annoyed”.
