Wont someone actually think of the children.

Throughout my working life and studies, I have learnt a LOT about privacy and protecting people’s privacy and the very good reasons behind them. Apparently transphobes don’t actually care about children.

Children/Kids/Youth are their OWN human beings, with their own thoughts and feelings.

Recently Abigail Shrier decided to brag all over Twitter, how a parent was given a CONFIDENTIAL form, from a teacher because they had a “guilty conscious” that they were keeping a secret from the parents. What broke my heart, was that the child had written on the form that they were scared of their parents, and they didn’t want their parents to know, because they don’t trust their parents”…Yet, Abigail Shrier was acting like the teacher doing something completely illegal was good for “bragging rights”.

I honestly wanted to slap her when she said “I got the Mom’s permission to show this”….That’s not who you NEED the permission from “dear”.

What makes me more than mad, knowing what I know. Women and men are more likely to be attacked by someone they know, rather than someone they don’t. Children, that number is higher, for THIS very reason. Some parents see their children as THEIR property, and not their own human being. What this “teacher” has done, has not only outed this child without their permission, but has also put this child at a much bigger risk of being harmed by their parents. It’s illegal in pretty much every first world country to do this as well.

Then the parents turned around and proved their child right, by handing this form to Abigail Shrier, a anti-trans “Princess” who then posted the form on Twitter.

What is also sad, is on the form, this child’s peers supports them. It’s just the adults who do not. This is why I hate adults.

If your child, doesn’t want to tell you that they think they’re trans or they’re gender fluid or non-binary. That’s completely a YOU problem, and clearly for very good reasons. It’s also not the end of the world, as some parents make out.

Outing someone without their permission, has also NEVER been okay. Child or Adult.

Another One! How much more can we take? R.I.P

2016 has taken a lot from us, Bowie, Rickman, Henderson, Prince, Wilder, Natalie Cole, Ron Glass…Just to name a few and now they have taken another one!

Popular Australian print magazine, mainly aimed at youth and teenagers, Dolly, have decided to stop printing their magazine after 46 years. For those who don’t know Dolly is a well known Australian magazine that deals with youth and teenage issues. It’s not a heavy amazing as you can probably tell by the picture below. It has mainly bits and pieces that are/were relevant to youth at that time.

International Model and successful business woman, Miranda Kerrs, career was launched with Dolly.

Dolly magazine’s print edition axed after 46 years

Never fear though! Dolly is still around, it’s just online now instead of in a print version, people will be losing jobs though. SO technically not actually dead. Yet, another blow for printed materials though.

Share Your World … Week 43

What are you really glad you did yesterday?

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

After developing sciatica last year, I’ve found that I now prefer one floor houses,lol. It was literally hell getting up the stairs, there were a few times where I was crawling up the stairs and my Mum kept trying to convince just to sleep on the couch for the night.  Before that though I honestly didn’t mind one way or the other.

Have you done something you truly want to do today?

What plans did you have as a teenager that didn’t happen? Are you happy it didn’t work out that way?

I never really had set plans, I was so angry when I was a teenager, I just wanted someone to care and reach out. I don’t think thinking of future plans was high on my list. My parents separated two days before I started high school and no one ever asked me if I was alright. People were making me take sides. I struggled with dyslexia and didn’t even know it until after I finished high school, when I look back on my assignments and the comments my teachers were leaving, it was so obvious and none of the teachers gave a poop, except for one. Just getting through the day without losing it was pretty much all I was thinking of.

Libraries are Magic!

Libraries are still a magic places to visit, especially for the children. My grandmother was a Library Manager and I used to spend a lot of time at her Library and I guess it’s what has inspired me the most. It just feels like such a shame that more Libraries just don’t have the funding to make their Libraries looks like these.
