Yes or No

I promise this is going to be my last Same Sex Marriage post, mainly because I think by now people have their minds pretty set. Guess What…Whether you agree with someone or not, they have a right to say what they think. We don’t actually have “Freedom of Speech” in Australia, we have an implied right to political speech.

Basically whether or not you agree with the other side, they have a right to say what they want, but you also have to accept the consequences of those actions. A lot of businesses for example have social media type clauses.

The situation frustrates me because the Government should have just let it happen. I swear, there would have been a few upset people but I truly do think it would have just died down after a few months. Other countries that have done it, are perfectly fine. So what is the problem?

Oh and if one more person brings up “paedophilia” for a reason to Vote “No”. I swear I will list every single Church since the beginning of time that have either been charged or investigated for paedophilia…George Pell anyone?

Here are some facts:

  • People had up until the 24th of August to register to Vote.
  • There is a very quick way to check where the closest post office box is to you. You’ll probably find that it’s actually within walking distance.
  • Your vote has to be back by November 7th.
  • It’s not a obligatory vote.
  • Probably the saddest fact that even if the majority Vote Yes…It still doesn’t mean that the Government have to let it pass, there will just be more of a possibility of it happening.
  • No matter what the outcome is…Gay people can already have children, whether it’s by adoption or surrogacy or…other. The outcome of this vote will NOT change that. Some people seem to still need to get this one in their heads.

Uncomfortable

*I just want to start this off by saying that these thoughts are literally my own thoughts, I do not recommend or wish to dissuade anyone*

I recently read an article (please press the link): “I call him my rapist”  . Breaking the article down it is about a woman (and yes men can be raped too) In this situation though, it’s about a man raping a woman. After years of no one doing anything about her case, and being told that her files from her visit to the hospital had been destroyed and then finding out that they HADN’T been destroyed! As well as the AVO she had out on the guy had “accidentally” been destroyed. Over a 16 year period the guy ended up doing the same to at least three other women (that they know about) BUT they decided to make the cases separate, so the jury would never hear how he did this too other people. He was acquitted.

The lady then decided it was about time someone did something and so she posted the guy’s address. Which then instigated a whole load of backlash and even threats of arrest, because we have to wait and let “Justice” take it’s course.

This is why I am so on the fence, it does make me feel uncomfortable for someone to post someone’s address, whether or not they did something. On the other hand, I can completely get where this women is coming from. The irony in threatening her with legal ramification is just also kind of laughable as well. When she did come out with his address as well other women then came forward, thinking they were the only ones who he had done this too. How can someone whose been raped, has the proof and yet has been the one being threatened to be charged with something?

How does it come too that?

Yet, still, people cannot figure out why people do not go the police.

Ideal Realist

Is what I call myself, this is a part of who I am…Too me it means I get the realistic side of a situation, but the dreamer in me still wants everything to work out and work out well for everyone involved.

…One of these times of being who I am came into fruition over the past week, regarding, you may have heard about April the Giraffe giving birth and the attention it received when the live feed was suddenly taken down because of people reporting as “sexual” >.< My first thought was honestly “What kind of weirdo finds this sexual AT ALL?” However, along the lines I heard that animal activists wanted the video down in protest of April being in a “Zoo”.

Now the reason I bring up myself being an Ideal Realist. Yes, it would be fantastic to have all these animals running wild and free. It’s just not possible, right now, they’d get shot on site. Some of these Zoo’s are doing some fantastic work when it comes to conservation. For young people and children, this is where their love for these animals first come to life. It gets the children interested, it makes them want to know more.

I am all for shutting down bad Zoos and ones that are just terrible. However, some Zoo’s are doing terrific work.

Zoos South Australia Conservation Program

Fighting Extinction – Zoos Victoria

Australia Zoo – Conservation 

I do actually believe that we will be able to see these animals a bit more free as years go by. As I feel we have a lot more people fighting for them. However, trying to get a video taken for reasons you don’t even mean, just makes the cause look laughable -.- If you want a video taken down, say why you REALLY want it taken down, not some fake one. I swear, not many people even knew about this Giraffe until the video was taken down and people started to find out “Why”. I admire people who want to see these animals free and really wild, like a lot of us do…But it was just going about it the wrong way.

If you really want to help, actually get out there and do something. Not just report a video for being sexual, that isn’t at all. Get out there and do some conservation work, actually volunteer at these Zoo’s so you can see for yourself what they do and THEN make a judgement. A lot of people I’ve seen who complain about Zoo’s actually haven’t been in the Zoo, so how can you know what they’re really doing?

I get worried when people do things like this, they are taking it away from the cause. Making it look like a joke, rather than getting people to look at the cause for what it is.

Please, stay single

There are these people that I know who clearly fooling around with each other behind their partners back. I have lost respect for these people over time and I just have very little to do with them anymore. The whole group is just a mess.

It doesn’t just bug me because they are cheating with each other, but it’s also because one of them was single when they met the other originally. They had just gotten out of an engagement and at the time the other person was married. Yet, even though there were obvious feelings between the two: Person A didn’t even leave their marriage until their partner got an amazing job ‘overseas’ and they just didn’t want to put the effort in. Which is when I really started to lose respect since their partner had given up so much to begin with. It was SUCH a cop out.

Person B then started dating nearly all of Person’s A closest friend while, at least, emotionally cheating on them all with Person A and got engaged to one of them. Then conveniently Person A marriage split up and Person B with their fiance…Coincidence.

STOP USING PEOPLE! NO ONE DESERVES THAT!

usins

I have a hard time not saying anything because I’m one of those people who hates injustice of any type. Which means the best that I feel like I can do is just stay away since no one else in the group seem to honestly care and they even called Perfect B “Perfect” and that they could never think of an insult good enough. So it continues.

What the actual…

What this all comes down for me is to tell people. Please, for the love of god, don’t date someone because you can’t be with the person you want too be with. Please don’t date someone because you’re lonely and you don’t think you can’t do any better…You partner doesn’t deserve that. When you start to date someone, please make sure this is what you really want. You may not be sure that you even want to date, but make sure you don’t drag someone else through it. This world is so small, they are plenty of people out there for you.

Dating someone else because you are alone or because you want to be with someone else is not a strong thing and it’s not what a strong person does….Or a good person and definitely not what “perfect” people do either. You know why? A strong and a good person knows that they are okay by themselves. They know that they are okay being alone and that they believe they will find someone, they don’t need to use anyone else. They also know the love they are getting from their family and friends is enough, or the love they have for themselves IS enough. (If it isn’t, maybe look into that…That’s a post for another day though!).

On some level I actually get it, for some people it is very hard to think of others and other people, and seeing from their point of view. Unless they are actually treated this way themselves. They they just don’t care enough to get it. Too me, personally, it also speaks on a level of having no heart and being some kind of a sociopath as well. There’s no heart or kindness to use another human being in such a way. I think there is something off about people who do that, especially people who repeatedly do it.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!lol…Love yourself and each other ❤

Toxic

I think I figured out yesterday after thinking about my post from yesterday (Unexpected). Facebook is just SO toxic and I don’t really understand why. There are a lot of people on there who just want to be “right” with no actual facts, with no compassion and a lot of “the majority think that way, so you’re right” even when a lot of time most of the comments are thinking the opposite way. I have yet to see someone go “You know? Maybe I should (first of all) get all the facts” and “Maybe I should have thought about this more”. I honestly used to feel not “normal” before Facebook came along and since it has, I’ve started to realise that I have a lot of my s#@t together,lol

Nup, it’s all about “Truth hurts!” Although a lot of the time there are no facts whatsoever. Don’t these people just feel…stupid…Why do they do it?

I just don’t think Facebook is for me anymore. Maybe it’s just time for me to spend even more time off of it. I don’t know about anyone else, but are you just bored with it? It feels like a popularity contest, people make judgement with no communication towards the people, even though I still think it’s a great tool for keeping in contact with people. Others just don’t use that way.

Time for reading and exploring and just getting out there! Doing things I actually enjoy doing rather than arguing with stupid people,lol

Karma Part 2

Firstly I am going to repost my post about Karma here that I posted last week.

Karma

Please take a read of it and let me know what you think!

The reason for this post though is because I cannot stop laughing about something that happened the day AFTER I made this post and thought that I would share. So to break down my previous post. It’s all about how I see Karma and that it’s not just one big event that happens to someone that had wronged you, but something they have to live with every day. So don’t hang around waiting for something to happen.

The day after my original post, a big karma event happened to someone who had humiliated me publicly. I try to be a good person, but even I had to have a little evil snicker. Well more than a snicker, but I was talking to someone who had no idea what had gone on. They know I knew some people from this gaming area, but they have no idea how horrible they were. I was actually trying to support their business, and I actually enjoyed going and playing games there, so one of the co-workers, one of my ex’s best friends, added me to their Facebook business page. I swear the owner and one of my ex’s best friends, put in all capital letters (My ex and I have a lot of mutual friends in common, that’s how we met) “WHY HAVE YOU ADDED HER?” I felt so humiliated and I never went back. I found out later that he had told other people “I shouldn’t have done that”….He never said it too ME though. Ever since, his business has had problems. I found out that now his second business is probably going to be gone soon.

Not only that but someone very close to me has been harassed by a customer and this person has been naaasty! My friend said it’s the worse customer they have ever had! They just could not find her order. Well today they found this person has been ringing the wrong company (they still have not rang back to apologise either). Not only that though (it gets better from here!) The person blasting my friend, is working for a company that is given a special extra discount for exclusively working with my friends company. Which means that they can NOT get parts or anything from any other company. Which means this woman through her own stupidity has now gotten her company into trouble, because of her call proving they are working and getting orders from other companies.

So, sometimes Karma does work in one big way.

National Sorry Day

May the 26th is a poignant here in Australia it is “National Sorry Day”. This day is significant because it symbolises the Day where the Australian Parliament publicly apologised to the Indigenous people of Australia (the Aboriginal people).

It’s a time to reflect on what the Settlers did to the Indigenous people of this land, not only what we did to their land when we came over to “settle” Also the “certain situations” that have happened over the years. (I’m at Work right now, but on Friday I should be able to write more about this). National Sorry Day is also a part of Australia’s Reconciliation Week.

 

Am I wrong?

*start rant here =P*
If you are an avid reader of mine you’ll know that I watch this live web feed Wild Earth Live Safari. Any-ways, on their Facebook page (one of them anyways) they’ve decided that people are not allowed to post anything about poaching or hunting? It’s a wildlife page on conservation land that has a wide range of animals that are heavily endangered, and they don’t want posts about poaching and hunting because it’s not “nice”?

Seriously!

People are all for it too, except for me…I’ve created a little bit of a ho ah…Aww the poor little human beings are all put out by the articles saying that they animals they claim to love so much are being tracked, hunted, beheaded. We’re watching these animals for free, and you don’t want post some articles because its “not nice”. I think it’s the LEAST we can do for these animals! Get the articles out there.

Make the people aware of how bad it is out there!

I cannot turn my back on these animals as we are lucky enough to watch these drives for free, educating us, teaching us and not only do the animals ask us for nothing, we are the only ones who can speak up for the animals. If a group of people who understand and see these amazing creatures in their family groups and their every day habit…Turn our back and not talk about the realities, because it’s not “nice”…My heart is literally broken.

This video is of a young Matimba male called “Junior”. Junior is a young male and will be forced by his Dad and Uncle to leave the pride soon, he’s just getting to old to hang around anymore. Junior does not have any brothers to leave with and their does not seem to be a young male coalition around that he might be able to join. Junior will more than likely have to survive on his own and far away from the safety of the conservation. Into the path of poachers and hunters…How can anyone look at him and go and pretend that this isn’t happening. Why would anyone want to do nothing and not stand up and say “No! We wont allow this to keep happening!”

Share Your World…Week 28

Share Your World

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Definitely Nacho Cheese Dorito chips! Summer or Winter, they are my favourite!

If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)

Oh wow! I can’t remove anything? Maybe like a toy store then, so I could play with all the things but I wouldn’t really have a place to put them. So I could have play and then leave…Possibly leaving someone else to clean up the mess.

What was the largest city you have been to?  What is the one thing you remember most?

That would have to be between Arizona and Melbourne. They are both completely different but they are both different ways. Melbourne’s is mostly city and buildings (which are beautiful) but Arizona is mainly big due to their landscape.

Finish this sentence:  It has recently come to my attention that …. People these days appear to be a lot more “self-involved” then I remember them being. There is a lot more “I am right, you are wrong, no I will not discuss it”.
