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?

Words

“Sleep with whoever will have you”, “We’re fighting for the rights of children, by not speaking with them and talking for them”, “We walked away because the sign said ‘No terfs’ allowed”. These are not the words of powerful women. These are not the words of Witches of Suffragettes. These are the words of TERFs.

Use your words kindly and wisely. Our Words Matter.

Thursday Theories – Words

Watching the generation that mocks Greta Thunberg for being “overly emotional”. While having near break downs over the Health and Medical professionals using the word “chest”, to make others feels more comfortable about coming in . Is oddly satisfying. Whose being the overly emotional ones now! lol

Does this need to actually pointed out as well, to “grown ups” like Janice, Victoria … whatever her name is. That not all pregnant people are going to be that fetuses mother or parent? Not all babies and children end up with the person that gave birth to them.

Oh and now to the “chest feeding”. I can’t decide (and I’ve warned my mum and partner) whether or not to call it #chestfeeding or #wallawallabingbang feeding and see if the baby cares, or if my breasts suddenly “disappear”.

I wonder if we got this hysterical when we went from wifman, to women?

Words like everything else in life, changes. Linguistics actually do consider that language evolves, rather than changes. They usually change depend on that present society. Take the word “gay” as a good example. It used to be known as being happy and care-free. Now, it describes homosexuality. That’s probably only happened in the last 50 years or so.

Do Languages evolve or merely change? – Science Direct

Highlights

Language dynamics is a true evolutionary process, because it exhibits variation and selection.•

Language variation arises through social learning, performance deviation and creative language use.•

Language selection is based on communicative success, increased expressive power, and the reduction of cognitive effort.

Words …

I am Lauren, I am a women, I am a daughter, a sister, , a niece, a granddaughter, a teacher, a leader, a listener, a dancer, a basic bitch. I am a female, a thinker, a Goddess, a nerdess, a student, a researcher and full of faults.

If even one or all of these words, change or became useless tomorrow, it doesn’t matter. Because I will still be all of those still, just new words instead. Because I am still me and I am still here.

Erasing the word “woman”, doesn’t erase women. There’s no big pencil with a eraser on the end ready to erase “women” out, just because the WORD women doesn’t exist anymore. It didn’t happen when we went from wifman to women, and it wont happen. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, women and wifman are still here. Heck, we’re also called wimman, wibman.

Tell your TERF friends. And remind them, that hanging one’s existence entirely on one word, is not a good way to love yourself, and doesn’t do any good to your self esteem. Please don’t teach your children, that their entire existence depends on a word.
