*big sigh* So yesterday, Rowling didn’t just let the mask slip, she went full Emperor naked. She harassed Nicola Sturgeon, the female Prime Minister of Scotland. She also spent the day harassing women, including accounts that had 300 or less followers.
In the meanwhile…Good things actually did happen!
Look up Gender Pay Gap Bot for a start, lol
A working group produced a groundbreaking report for a Misogyny Bill for Scotland.
Before I start this, I clearly include ALL women in this.
Each year IWD is given a theme, which often relates to contemporary events, trends and struggles. This year the focus is on ‘breaking the bias‘. Which is so cool, and I do wonder if it has something to do with the hatred that the trans community has been experiencing.
Also, I freaking just hate Rowling. Not even sorry, I just hate her. She gives women every a bad name.
What I would like to know is, who are your inspirational women? #IWD2022
I would say that I am inspired by a lot of the women in my family. In all honesty (mainly my mums side). My great grandfather, missed a part of her leg from polio, but not one ever considered her disabled. She had a child out of wedlock and never pretended her was her “younger” brother. My grandmother taught me about Reiki, Tarot meditation. She travelled overseas and backpacked by herself, in her 50’s and helped people with AIDS/HIV. My mum, brought up my brother and I with pretty much no help from my Dad.
Every other I admire, is just a little bit extra.
And I know myself doing “Twitter” isn’t enough.
Also I got my booster done, and I am doing well! My arm hurts like a …
I ask this question, because it’s coming up more and more in relation to Rowling, and what HAS she actually done.
Well, not that much actually.
Recently she donated some money to a women’s center, because of COVID. It’s only taken her over two years to remember there’s a COVID virus, I guess spreading all that bigotry makes you forget things like a global virus for more than two years.
The biggest reason this has been being brought up, is because in hindsight she hasn’t really done anything for women. Even when it comes to women or men in her own life, unless they agree with her, of course. She actually blocked Stephen King for saying that trans women are women.
One person, brought up that she donated a million dollars to somewhere “womanly” lol. When we started to break it down though, it was no different to someone working full time for us ordinary folk, donating $40 to a charity a month. SHE’S A FREAKING BILLIONARIE PEOPLE!
The woman could have a chain of domestic and rape center’s for just females, but no, she just let’s her minions continue to harass them instead. That’s not very “for women” is it? You can by the way, you can have female and male only domestic and rape crisis center’s. Too credit them two transphobic people have tried to raise money for female centre’s, for some reason (like I really don’t know why) other transphobic people shout them down. That whole thing is just odd.
So, on here a list of some of the issues that have come up:
Sending Marilyn Manson a huge bunch of red roses around the time he was starting to be accused of abuse.
Rowling’s studio sacked a pregnant actor, for being pregnant. The actor sued and won. Rowling was silent.
The ONLY thing Rowling said about Depp was that she didn’t choose to hire him…What does that even mean?
Kevin Guthrie, an actor on Fantastic Beasts was arrested and jailed for sexual assault. Rowling was silent.
She has yet to say anything about the racism that “Cho Chang” actress Katie Leung faced, with Rowling’s own lazy racism.
Her big hero Magdalen Berns, isn’t just anti-trans. Burns was also anti (and very openly) semantic as well. She was also VERY degrading to women who did not agree with her. She was just a terrible human being.
When I think of someone, say, Dr Ford. The Dr who stood up to her attacker. She knew that she would most likely lose, but she still fronted up and talked. She stood up to her attacker who was about to be made a Supreme Court Judge and has a HUGE power over the control of other’s bodies. Unlike Rowling who talks about her attacks from cis males, and yet blames trans people.
This is going to be a LOT for a lot of you on a Monday morning. But it is a serious subject and should never be a versus subject.
ANY time, you make a SERIOUS health condition, that you cannot catch, about a group of other people. You are transphobic, you are racist etc.
Of COURSE trans people tell their doctor’s their biological sex,. You can’t CATCH heart attacks. There’s only two people who NEED to know your biological sex, yourself and your doctor. Jesus Christ STOP using transphobia and using it to take away from real life health situations! Heart attacks are a serious health condition and NO ONE should use them as a way to have a go at anyone.
Women and men are absolutely told what symptoms to look out for. I know about women’s atypical symptoms, if you don’t, that is purely on you. We’re in 2022 now, there are a lot of foundations, health and medical services that are specifically about heart conditions, and no excuse to not inform yourself. You don’t need to be told. You can also ask questions. Heck, I was sent to the ER a couple of years because I could feel my muscle stiffening from the cholesterol medication I’m on. I knew I wasn’t having a heart attack, but they sent me anyway. I was only 35. So again, it’s on you, the individual to find out.
As for women, we tend to not listen to our bodies as well…Anyone ever heard of man flu?lol…We all know when your man has got it, lol.
As I said before you cannot catch a heart attack. However, if you chose to get irrationally angry over your bigotries, then you will probably give yourself one. Including decided to tell people that you can’t “identify” your gender with an heart attack. Which is what Silver Apple “Queen” goes on to suggest. But you know, she doesn’t “hate” trans people, she just continually attacks them, brings them up, spreads misinformation about them in nearly every single post and comment and gets completely irrationally upset over them.
If you take anything away from this post. Whatever you chose to do with your health. Never EVER listen to someone who has a clear bias against an individual or a group of people. Myself, I am currently on medication that helps lower my cholesterol. I have a family history of high cholesterol. Although only my Dad has ever had a triple bypass on both sides of my family, that can be contributed to his alcoholism. I would rather just be safe.
Even after adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors such as age, high blood pressure, diabetes and lack of exercise, transgender men (who were born biologically female but now identify as male) had more than four times the rate of heart attack as cisgender women (who were born biologically female and identify as female) – 7.2 percent compared with 3.1 percent. Transgender men also had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender men (who were born biologically male and identify as male).
Transgender women (who were born biologically male and identify as female) had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender women. There was no significant difference in heart attack rates for transgender women and cisgender men.
I will point out as well. Even though trans gender/sexual people have been around since before Christianity. It is because of right wing patriarchal religions, that we know so little about trans gender science, medical and health. Heck, the Nazi’s actually burnt down the first LGBTQIA friendly Science and Health center. That is fact by the way, a lot of the older religions and older matriarchal societies have a third gender or sex. In fact, a lot of female Witch societies accept transgender people in their group. I am going to deeper into that on Thursday.
Women will tend tend to have more atypical symptoms, than typical
What is the difference between typical and atypical symptoms?
Atypical pain (women) is frequently defined as epigastric or back pain or pain that is described as burning, stabbing, or characteristic of indigestion. Typical symptoms (men) usually include chest, arm, or jaw pain described as dull, heavy, tight, or crushing.
This is one of the reasons that heart attacks in women tend to go undiagnosed. I am going to praise ALL women here, our bodies can handle a LOT. Whether or not you have children, or have menstruation, or even have the big boobs, a big menopause or a little one. I think I can safely speak for ALL women, when I say these are just what our bodies on a daily basis, lol.
Heart attacks are a horrible health condition. I made a joke above about the man flu, but men do tend to… not exaggerate…It’s a kind of weird “societal” thing, that’s not exactly a society thing. You would think, if you listened to society, that women would be the ones who don’t “work through” a heart attack, and men would not. Yet, its one of the situations that is the opposite. This is why I’m like gender stereotypes are so stupid, lol.
Dear ALL women, please start listening to your bodies more. It’s YOUR body, do not rely on others to take care of it for you. You have one body, listen to it and take care of yourself.
Now, if you excuse me. I am going to go throw up. Due to my mental health issues, talking about things like heart attacks, suicides and serious health conditions, tends to put myself really on edge. Basically I think I’m going to “get it”. But this is an important topic, that needs to be taken seriously and not made to be a versus issue.
I am all for Women’s Rights, but I’ve noticed something over the last couple of years.
What is it with grown women lately, causing harm and spreading misinformation, just to turn around and play “victim”?
I know I go on a lot about Rowling a lot, but she isn’t the only women doing those sorts of things.
We have a female journalist here in Australia, who is clearly biased towards one particular political party, at the tax payers expense. Most of the time she’s called out on it, she just blocks those people. Then turns around on our taxpayer national news front to say how much she’s being “bullied” on Twitter. She calls it misogny (which it isn’t) but she also fails to mention that the male journalists are being called out on it too.
This is becoming a re-occurring theme with women. Women who are being really horrible, and obviously bias. Want to them turn around and play “victim”.
There’s always been women like this, but it seems to be really bad in the last year or so.
My mum asked me the other day, if the TERFs had a problem that I was mainly “picking” on women all the time? You know like Rowling, Duffield, Cherry, MTG. THOSE women.
I have to admit, I do. For one reason only. These are the same women who say that it’s only men who are abusive, men who are threatening. Women are better and we’re these little vulnerable little creatures that can’t take care of themselves against a man.
At the exact time, when they’re claiming that women are better and kinder than men, while doing exactly what toxic men do.
If women are better than men, then why do exactly what you say toxic men do?
Whenever you want to point out that you better than someone else, you don’t then turn around and do exactly what they do.
A lot of these particular women are doing what they and themselves, say not to do.
So no, it’s isn’t all women, and it isn’t all men. When it is though, we have to call them out on it.
If you ever try to come for me, a cis woman with the utter bullshit that is, biological sex is “essential” to being a woman. I will kick your ass every single time. I know women who can’t give birth, I know women who don’t want to give birth, I know women who had part of their sex removed, because the women in their families, have a family history of certain cancers. Shock and horror, there are even women who don’t menstruate, hence why we need sex ed in classes. … THESE WOMEN, ARE STILL WOMEN …
Also, don’t make me defend my ex-friends choices of not having children, and then talking about how all children should die. I don’t wanna do that. Don’t make me do that.
When most women and girls are asked, who do you think you are when you’re “fighting”. MOST girls and women will tell you someone like Wonder Woman or Captain Marvel … myself … Nothing wrong with that! lol
