The dumbest

I tell you something, Twitter has some really dumb people on it. The other day a “TERF” wrote and I quote “I refuse to be called a bleeding body…I am woman!”

First thing I thought of was “If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?”

Then I thought, well technically, we’re ALL a bleeding body. At some point, I am like 99.99% percent sure that we’ve bled.

In the end I said to them “Call yourself whatever you want”.

Which brings me to the point of my post. If you could bleed whatever you wanted too…What would you bleed?

Words

I know one lesbian dating a trans woman and a lesbian dating a trans man. How would trans people call themselves lesbian or gay, if they erased those words? How would trans women call themselves women, if they erased that word? The whole “erasing” words make no sense too me.

One, people don’t usually own words, in general. Some businesses and artist own the words of their business/name. Generally we don’t words and words change over the centuries. There was even a time where women had no name, because we were just objects.

And if words have no meaning, and you can’t harm someone with your words as transphobes keep saying every since they found they can be arrested for misgendering trans people. Why do the transphobes, have a problem with the word woman?

What is the most powerful word?

I was inspired to write about this post after dealing with, I am pretty sure right winger on Linkedin. They were replying to a UN post about hate speech being inflammatory and can start problems.

“What is hate speech”. This “person” kept saying just because someone says that they “hate” someone, doesn’t mean they want physically harm too them. They did a lot of writing, without actually saying much, other than it was obvious they had no problem with hate speech. So I told them that, lol.

Oh boy, lol

Then there was a whole heap of insulting towards me and just like “they have valid points”. Which one, no they didn’t. If you don’t, as an adult, don’t know what hate speech is. You either ARE stupid, which is something I was accused of calling someone. Or you need to go back to school. Anyways, I did end up saying something and reminding them that it’s LinkedIn, not Twitter or Quora.

They were acting stupid, but I didn’t say the word “stupid”. Which was funny too me. Mainly because of what I wrote above, and what they wrote too. Even if I called someone stupid, doesn’t mean I want to harm them. So when they accuse me of calling them stupid, go for it, still not hate speech according to them, lol.

Also, it’s funny how they can all mind read each other. Maybe that’s why they think everyone else can do it too? If you say “I hate this group” that group has no idea that you don’t mean them harm. On top of which, I asked them to provide me with examples of Trump, Rowling, Putin and Hitler saying they hate the people we all know they do. They couldn’t, of course.

Hate Speech is simply this:

This is what the UN posted on LinkedIn

I guess the biggest irony is, of course and always that in the entirety of what they were writing. Every single person who “had a go” at me. Was being indifferent and were writing ignorantly of what hate speech is. They all know what hate speech is.

I would love to hear though, what you think is or are the most powerful words?

The thing that “scared” me the most about that conversation, were the supposed careers of the people I was having a conversation with. One was a language mentor, one was a prevention crime analyst and called themselves a “Peace Officer” The one who “asked” the UN “what is hate speech” is a Security & Defence Consultant, Analyst, Middle East and Africa.

Words

I was talking to an American friend earlier this week and we were talking role playing, and I said I don’t want to role play online with characters that require “rumpy pumpy”, and they couldn’t stop laughing! They had never heard the term before.

Rumpy Pumpy basically means, making sweet love.

What is a word you say that may be either made up or something you say that people may not have heard about?

Thursday Theories – Oh, I can call you worse than bigot

If you read my post on Monday, this sort of is a run on from that. So The Times, instead of posting about that on their front page. Decided instead to run a anti-LGBTQIA story with everyone’s “favourite” transphobe, Rosie Duffield. She declined to attend Labour’s conference, after being worried that she would get “told off” for her anti-trans views and words. The Times decided to calling trans people and their allies, trans extremists.

Fun Times, also, everyone should stop buying The Times.

So this one person, who just decided to ignore the truth. Were calling people like me, a violent misogynists, because we were calling out Duffield’s bigotry and calling her a bigot. Before they blocked me, I said to them that women like her are the problem with the UK.

Believe me dear, I could call Rosie Duffield worse words than a bigot, here are a few:

Patronizing

Degrading to women

Gaslighter

Pathetic (Seriously, can you imagine MLKjr just not turning up, in case he got told off)

Weak

No Shower

A Patriarchy Protector

Coward

Cowardly

I’ve had rape wished on me (by a large account that Rowling followed) called a groomer and a pedophile

I

STILL

SHOW

UP…

I know I’m in the right #Transisbeautiful Can you imagine MLKjr just not “showing up” Because he might get told off? Rosie Duffield is no MLKJr. That’s for sure.

What I would like to know, is you do have any words or terms that are may be a little more funny, but still “insulting” I spent the rest of that night, dealing out William Shakespeare insults…and it was a lot of fun!

“More of your conversation would infect my brain.”

Coriolanus (Act 2, Scene 1)

Adult Up

I’ve decided for myself, me and I, that I am changing the term from grow up to “Adult Up”.

I was inspired to do this when I was talking to a friends brother, who is more than clearly a Trump Supporter and quiet honestly against anything Science. Which means he against masks and vaccines. He was complaining one day, how he’ll only take a jab when it’s not a emergency vaccine (despite the emergency) and there aren’t endless shots. I pointed out to him, I don’t think it’s actually called “endless” when the most you’ll take it two.

He ended up calling me a sheep, because apparently there’s a third shot being created. I pointed out that that’s still not “endless” and in fact, if I had to take a shot every week to protect myself and others, that take’s, at most, 10 minutes, I’d do it. I also pointed that there are people who actually have to do that every day. In fact, those are the people, we are protecting. I ended up laughing and saying “Quiet frankly, it’s just laziness on your part” and called him a sloth, lol

I just thought during that whole conversation, this guy just needed to be adult.

Terms that are “fake news”

Just a random list of terms that bigots like to use to gaslight and upset people.

  • The one in the heading “fake news” – There’s either the truth or a lie.
  • Which brings me too “alternative facts”. – No such thing as a “alternative fact”. It is or isn’t.
  • “Biological Sex is real” Now this one is a little more complicated. This is generally used as a way to say there are only two sexes.

Some people call the sex we’re assigned at birth “biological sex.” But this term doesn’t fully capture the complex biological, anatomical, and chromosomal variations that can occur. Having only two options (biological male or biological female) might not describe what’s going on inside a person’s body.

Planned Parenthood – sex-gender-identity

The best term to use, is “assigned sex” at birth.

  • A lot of people say “Science”, but what they mean is Twitter Science. The thing with Science is, because Science is about learning and exploring too. Science is never “really” set. I find that a lot of people who say, and are being bigots “It’s just Science” It’s actually not.
  • “They’re just words” Then why is it when people use words they don’t like, it’s harmful, it abuse. When they do it it’s always “just words”. Whenever someone says “They’re just words, they have no impact”. I point them in the direction of the Jan 6th insurrection, where the majority of those who died, were Trump Supporters. I also remind them that the Nazi’s didn’t start with the gas chambers, they also started with words. It’s called propaganda.

What terms have you heard of, that don’t actually mean what the person says they do, or they the person saying it doesn’t see their own projection of those words?

Tired

This is a bit of a cop out, I can’t think of anything to write for the moment. It’s the world…Every single day…

Do people think what they write and say anymore?

Do they listen to the words as they come out of their mouths?

Even though Trump is “gone” why does it feel like we’re still dealing with him?

How can people possibly say that words have no impact, when Trump is still making life changing impacts?

Why are people so stupid?

Have we always been this stupid?

Is it just because we had no social media echo, echoing out every single opinion known to man?

Why hasn’t that died out in the fires of Hell, still?

Why do people keep insisting on tweeting and posting every single stupid thought they have.

(Oh, this doesn’t include you).

And when they’re wrong, instead of remembering to be humble and go “I fucked up”, they double down instead?

Why do people insist we need to help women and girls with education, but they think they know everything and don’t have to “educate” themselves, when they’re a woman, whose working to get women and girls better education.

Let me introduce myself…

My name is Lauren, I am also known by Lolsy, Lolly, Lollypoppenjay, Lol, Lols, Lozza, Lorry…Just to name a few.

I come from the family of Bolton’s, Leonard’s, Bennett’s and probably others.

I am English, Australian and Irish.

I am a daughter, a niece, a friend, a cousin, a friend, a family member of a family, a fur mama, a fur aunt, fur sister a beloved great grand daughter. All the fur’s (haha).

I am a woman, a female, I am straight, I am cis and am not trans, I have big boobs, a nice butt (well I think so anyway) a regular menstrual cycle. I don’t know if I’m a reproductive, as I have no children. I assume I am though.

All of these words could change tomorrow, and you know something? I would still be here. With everyone of those things still true, they’d just be different words.

My three P’s

So I realised that I have three P’s that I stand by whenever I post or reply to people now. It can be all three, or just one, or even just two.

So my comments have to be all three, or at least one, or even two.

Proactive

Practical

Purposeful

I keep trying to find a “P” word that means funny or witty, but since I’m not generally that. I can’t find one anyway, lol. Sometimes I guess funny or witty just goes with them?

Do you have words or statements you abide by?
