Woke

What a day!

I don’t even know where to start with it, lol.

I would like to begin with sending some big love to DJ Twitchs family and friends today.

Michelle Obama pays tribute and hails Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss

I LOVED his dancing videos, and at 40 too. Mental Health can be such biotch sometimes!

Elon Musk is just suspending any journalist who rightly criticizes him. You don’t have to criticize him. He suspended the Mastodon account too. He’s suspended journalist who retweet any journalist who rightly criticized him.

Musk then was in a space chat with the journalist he blocked, only to leave after three questions…

The Right Wing UK Media, are saying that PRINCESS DIANA would have been disappointed by Harry…Diana would have been to woke for the Right Wing media. I am becoming less and less surprised that not only have Harry and Meghan gone to America, but Diana did too.

EXCLUSIVE: Diana planned to Malibu with William and Harry

“Ironically, some derogatory comments about the Queen Mother from the Princess were removed from the final cut.[16][17]

Trying to explain to older people why they are, in fact, being fatphobic. While they insist we were just generalising, was WILD. I love old people. But you know how the right wing say they’re not who we say they are, while proving at the same time, that they are being who the left say they are? That was like this conversation.

I mean, they were saying maybe the old lady was just “concerned” about their grand daughter putting on weight. Except they kept automatically assumed that this meant the grand daughter must be obese. In this conversation none of us even know what weight the grand daughter is. One time one them said that older people just remember a time when everyone was a “healthy weight”. I had to remind them, that a lot of older people smoked, drunk alcohol (and were probably functioning alcoholics) Coca cola had actual COKE in it.

Being skinny does not automatically = healthy. And automatically assuming someone MUST be obese, is also generalising and fatphobic.

I’m not “that” woke

I recently read an article that was writing about “Animal Rebellions” (I think they’re called). They took a lot of milk, somewhere in England. They caused about 80,000 pounds in damage. As well as losing Farmer’s income.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m from Australia, and so we have a lot of Farmers who suffer, just to feed someone like me. Out of all the careers in Australia, they probably face some of the most extreme hardships of Mother Nature. Farmers have killed themselves, some have lost entire farms due to droughts.

So when I see people actively go out of there way, to not think about the Farmers, I get really annoyed. Now, it is completely commendable to want to get Farmers onto better systems that work better for the Environment. You just don’t do that by destroying people’s current livelihoods. If you want to prove how much better you’ve think you’ve got it. Prove It. Start a farm of your own.

Why I am not watching the Commonwealth Games

Tory leadership race: Rishi Sunak vows to stop ‘woke nonsense and left-wing agitators’ in latest pledge

Rishi Sunak has vowed to review the Equalities Act to stop the “woke nonsense” he claims is “permeating public life”.

‘Apologetic to the left!’ Truss vows Common Sense crackdown on ‘woke’ government culture

That coming from the woman who LGBT staff QUIT the Tory’s LGBT party and it was never refilled. IS pretty fucking stupid. There is NOTHING woke about the Tory party.

The UK fell down…again…in LGBT safety in 2022.

UK falls down Europe’s LGBTQ+ rights ranking for third year running

Stonewall and other LGBT+ friendly organisations choose to pull out of “It’s safe to be me”. Because, as we have seen over and over again, it is NOT safe to be LGBT. Let alone the attacks by “prominent” people against Stonewall, despite the public standing WITH Stonewall.

Let alone, all the Tory damage done to the UK with Brexit, education, voting NOT to feed the UK children and leaving it to a football player. I cannot do it anymore. It’s like once you know something, you can’t unknow it.

I think we can say, quiet confidently, that no one in the Tory party, is “woke”.

I am Woke

And ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Do I get things wrong? Sure.

Still Woke though.

So too me, being “Woke” also is another way of saying you’re awake. ie being awake to injustices, rather than asleep or blind too them.

So why do those on the Right and Conservatives, say “woke” like it’s a bad thing?

It’s kind of like when Trump Supporters would (and still do) call Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” … I’m sorry, what’s the problem with being able to sleep, rather than staying up too all hours madly tweeting away?

How woke are you?

First off, I hope this is not offensive…But I’d rather be “woke” than “blind”!

How woke do you think you are though?

I realised how I’m not ‘woke’ woke the other day, when I couldn’t help but laugh at a article. Too being with, I got where this person was coming from, but even this was a little too “woke” for myself. I also believe though, if you really don’t like something, don’t watch it, don’t talk about it, don’t give it a voice. Instead, create what you want instead.

In Australia, we have a children’s program called “Bluey”…

Bluey is a Blue Australian Cattle Cartoon talking dog…I don’t know really know much else about the show, other than that and that it is really popular.

So a journalist came out to say that Bluey wasn’t diverse enough for children. Like I was saying before, I’m all for diversity, but Bluey is pretty set up now and is still a popular show, that doesn’t harm children in the negative. It also generally runs for only 7 minutes. I’m not exactly sure what this journalist was trying to do. But of course if you said anything, you were being racists (the journalists is Asian) and you’re a bigot.

Which is clearly silly.

I guess it’s with anything that swings too far either way, people get silly.

So I’m “woke”, but I’m not woke woke I guess, haha

Why though?

I would love to know WHY it takes posting something Nazi related is what makes people FINALLY take action against hateful people? Generally posting something Nazism isn’t the only or first hateful thing they’ve done. So why? Why are people allowed to get there in the first place?

There are SO many people and organizations that just need to be shut down, and I strongly believe it’s because they’re not stupid enough to post anything “Nazi”, that they’re still running. A hate group, is STILL a hate group though. Being a Nazi, or being a Nazi sympathizer, doesn’t mean you still can’t be hateful.

I know Nazism is the ultimate mortal evil, but come on! It’s like that saying “They didn’t start with gas chambers”...and it’s true.

We have a “celebrity chef” here in Australia, called Pete Evans, and I never clicked with him. He’s into paleo, he was always giving bad advice about it. Then he steadily just gave out more and more weird advice. While getting…what are they called…those injections you put in your forehead. Then he was let go from a tv show, because he was really giving bad food and eating advice on the side. Then during covid19 he “produced” a crystal machine that was worth OVER $5000! Australian dollars, to get rid of COVID. Then he started to just fall down the whole Bill Gate is putting 5G chips in our heads to give us cancer. Still NO ONE was dropping him. He was still bringing out health and cook books. Then was added to “I’m a celebrity…Get me out of here.”

THEN…

He posted a Nazi caterpillar, who turns into (I believe) it’s called a black sun Butterfly picture.

That’s when he started to get dropped, from everything. How on earth, he was STILL getting all these great deals to begin with! Is beyond me! He should have never HAD all these deals.

That’s what I mean though, absolutely no one was shocked by his slow progression. It was out there for all to see, but WHY the media seemed to be shocked that’s where he was headed, beyond us all. It’s kind of the same thing with Trump really, how no one could see that coming…Even with the transphobic people in the UK. Every single female GC or TERF “leader”, are either homophobic already, or are Trump supporters.

Naps

I thought that this week I would write about Napping, is it good, is it bad, are there any benefits whatsoever? I felt like we needed, well I, needed to look further into this because lately I have been napping badly. By that I mean, every time I’ve taken a nap recently, I’ve felt worse when I’ve woken up.

Napping – Sleep Health Foundation

This is what I get from when I’ve been napping lately:

  • Usually a headache
  • Back ache
  • Sometimes I feel more tired and worse than when I want to sleep.
