One day the Right will understand what Democracy and what an Opinion is.
I was “inspired” to write this post and having a “conversation” with a right winger, about how disrespectful and how hateful a potential Republican candidate was being towards the entire LGBTQIA community. They kept going on and on and on and on about how “we’re in a Democracy” after all.
As I had to explain to him “No you’re not in a Democracy. I don’t respect you or her (the candidate), but unlike you both I am not advocating for your arrest, based on a “opinion” either”. That’s what she was doing. And that is not Democracy. While also obviously complaining about how God made you a certain “way”, so you should love yourself that way. While having an obvious lot of work done, on themselves.
You literally don’t have to like anyone on this planet, but calling for other’s arrests. Using a hateful ‘opinion’ to demean others, to try and bring down groups of other HUMAN BEINGS down. That’s not Democracy. That’s tyranny.

Also, well done to Minneapolis–Saint Paul Twin Cities for democratically protesting Dave Chapelle’s bigoted ass out of there! You are NOT extremists. You are doing everything, as an American, you are ENTITLED too do. Also fuck you Dave Chapelle.
Loud Dobbs who has accused the Democrats of sympathising with terrorists and caring more about them then Gold Star families. For every lie they say, there’s an Trump action where he actual has done that.
Trump bragged about love letters from Kim Jong Un, he put Saudi above Jamal Khagossi and he actually put down a Gold Star family. I was going to edit “Loud” to “Lou”, but it actually suits.
There is so much “Is that true” or “is it false”. One does have to be very careful.
So be careful!
Don’t just assume *although completely justified* that everything Trump says is a lie. Do your own research into it as well.
In your mind you think you are able to handle anything but sometimes your mind and heart aren’t in sync.

So I was asked the other day why the elephants that the Kardashians were riding, weren’t from a sanctuary when the place says “Sanctuary”.
It’s really not a complicated situation. Just because someone calls themselves something, does automatically make it true.
The BEST way to tell if someone is a real sanctuary, is this. It’s all how they treat the animals. If they’re still letting people ride elephants, if the animals are being “petted”, usually still by the public. Elephants don’t naturally have anything on their backs, maybe birds. But people, we are not birds. You can tell yourself you weigh as little as bird, you don’t. If you do, you’re probably dead. Not sorry Kardashians.
Too get people onto the backs of elephants. Elephants, usually from a very young age, are whipped with bull hooks. SO WHILE some of these “sanctuaries” may brag they have rescued these elephants. Continuing these “tradition” doesn’t sound very sanctuary-like, does it? I don’t even think that they are still whipping the elephants. Doesn’t change that the elephants are probably still quiet frightened it’s going to happen. How are they supposed to know it wont?
Simply: If the public/celebrities are still being allowed to play and touch with the animals. It’s a no no to being a sanctuary. There are some good sanctuaries out there.
GG Conservation – The workers sometimes work with the animals when something needs to be done. Their animals tend to be special cases, and could never be released back into the wild.
Incredible But True
The word “testify” is based on the Ancient Roman practice of making men swear on their testicles when making a statement in court.
I feel like every single time there is a huge sexual assault case. All the “I don’t believe her, she waited too long”. Every single time we have to explain it all over again. Why people don’t report.
I have to say though it is amazing how Republican women will claim they were assaulted and they went straight to their Mothers. Yet, that’s not their problem. They keeps saying why didn’t she go to the police. Not one of the has said that they went to the police or the FBI either! So whose to say that there story is true? Isn’t that their whole problem?
Anyways, I digress…
Hopefully you have all been seeing the hashtags on Twitter or Instagram … #whyIdidntreport
If you have seen this hashtag, I hope you have read the courageous tales of both women AND men…On the various reasons of why they didn’t report.
- They were terrifed
- They knew the person and were in shock
- The person was in a position of power.
- They let someone know, but they were not believed or told not cause a “scene”.
- They were threatened.
Please understand that while at the same time it is complicated and it’s also not. It’s a story.
