Are Transgender People Enforcing Sexist Stereotypes?

I believe that question is a good summary of why I have a huge issue of the whole transgender movement. When asking people about why the feel they are born in the wrong body the answer tends to be a bunch of social stereotypes. Here are an example of what female and male characteristics are…

I have grown up with a mother who does all the DIY and a father who is a better cook. Thoses are two social stereotypes so if we are going on the theory behind why transgender people feel that way then my mother should be a man and my dad should be a woman. When I was at prep school (look at me I am posh haha) at the end of every year they gave out prizes for every subject, I won three out of four times in the subject of design and technology which according to social expectations that is a male subject. Does that mean identify as male? NO IT DOES NOT. I grew in a family that you can act and dress like you want and that will compared to how I am meant to behave according to my sex.

i just think changing your gender is so pointless when we have been spending years trying to close the gap of social expectations. If you are born a female and believe you have the characteristics of a boy, so fucking what? That does not mean you were born in the wrong body it just means you have more of a male personality. I have more of a male personality but that doesn’t mean I would change everything about myself just to align my body with my mind. I wish my boobs were smaller, and wish that guys clothing did my size because I’ve always thought it was better (and cheaper) than that of girls. None of thoses things mean I am a man in a woman’s body. They just mean I’ve come to accept that it doesn’t matter what you look like you can be anything you put your mind to it without having to go through surgery and such.

While I am writing this I am currently watching the football, Arsenal vs Sutton if you want to know which game. I am an arsenal fan you could say me having an interest in football is in fact a male trait but again that doesn’t mean I am a man. I have no issue if you are a boy and want to wear make-up. I have no issue if you are a woman and you want to play rugby but I don’t think just acting like a stereotype means you are that gender. By changing your gender or attempting to, you are actually making those social expectations a whole lot worst and so I honestly don’t like the whole movement of transgender people. This is coming from a girl who may like my dresses but my personality and character is a lot more of a male stereotypes than that of a woman’s.

Stop conforming to social expectations and stereotypes of what characteristics you should have and relate it back to your sex.

I would just like to say if you can give me an answer to the question why do you think you were born in the wrong body? Without talking about stereotypes then you are more than welcome to have a go at what I have said.

Freedom of Speech vs Hate Speech

Now I am all for freedom of speech, I use this blog to tell my viewpoints but what I don’t do is go out of my way to find people who disagree with me and hate on everything they believe. For example me saying ‘I think President Trump is a complete idiot and I will not accept him as my president because he is a horrible human being, a racist,  a bigot, a fascist and will destroy america’ that is hate speech. Saying the words ‘I am not overly a fan of trump as I disagree with his politics and i question his character but I must learn to come to accept that he is the president and trust that if he does a bad job we have the impeached system in place’ Both those things show a similar message but one is hate speech and one in not. I am all for people showing their opinions but do it like the second one rather than shoving mean insults and hate in their direction.

Another thing I would like to talk about is the protests, because I think they these are highly connected. Like I said I am all for Freedom of Speech what I do not accept is violence in any form no matter who you are. I don’t understand why some republicans can killed people bashed on race and religion. I do not understand why some Liberals have destroyed property and hurt innocent people just because of who they choose to support in terms of politics. I do not understand why boycotting in a thing when it comes to politics and think that both sides of politics are just as bad as each other if you look as single cases.

I live in england, so some people will be like ‘why is this british chick talking about my politics?’ Well it fasanties me how there can be so much hate between people and I try my best to look at all the facts, something which I regularly talk about. I don’t know much about the mass shootings which happened in america, that being said it is an argument that the left often bring up that it is always the republicans that cause the mass shootings. there might be some sort of link between politics and whether you feel the need to go and kill and hurt people but i would like to think that there isn’t. For example in this year the biggest mass shooting was done by a guy called Esteban Santiago, who was not a republican. For those who don’t know who he is he was the one who is thought have done the florida airport shootings. This is in america by there way. My source is here. For those who wish to just look at the list.

Even though I have said that republicans or right winged people have a harder time accepting people. I am saying that by using the information i have about the ALT Right when it comes to british politics. UKIP, is our far right party which main focus is getting rid of immigration, illegal ones and stopping others from entering the country. I believe in that to a degree, I honestly think around the world the vetting process is rather poor. I honestly believe that the world is overpopulated and I don’t think we need a mass of people moving into certain countries. I believe that if you move to another country you may take your cultures and traditions but you must integrate with the population and take on their traditions and cultures. I believe that the religion should not be shown or practiced in public except for churches and temples etc. I just think in the current climate it would be best, this includes wearing anything religious such as crosses. I am an atheist and therefore I found the whole idea of religion as a little bizarre.I just think it would be better if religion was left out of the world, for the time being just until we manage to restore some trust into the rest of the population. Carry on practising but as someone who doesn’t believe in it I don’t like the fact someone is trying to convince me I am wrong the whole time and of course with the issue that the muslim population have at the moment of being branded as terrorist even though most of them are simply lovely. Theses are my views as someone who is slightly right winged.

The left is something I always thought I was because I thought Obama was pretty brilliant granted I just liked his charisma. Which is a little worrying considering that was compared to of that of Hitler’s but let’s not talk about him at the moment. There are a couple of things that I wish Obama had done one of which I have talked about before. I can’t remember the exact quote I used because it was something along the lines of… The african american population are killing each other and if obama had accepted that and said we are killing one another he would have been incredible. He was the first black president and he seemed to have made the gap between the white and the black a lot bigger than it should be.  I would also like to talk about cultural appropriation, if i decide to wear a native american costume, do not tell me it is inappropriate unless you are native american. If I decide to wear my hair in dreadlocks you cannot say it is inappropriate because as a white British european I am a descendant of  Germanic tribes who were wearing them around 3000bc along with vikings, celts and people from egypt. If i decide to wear a kimonos you cannot say anything unless you are from japan. I am fed up of people saying they are offended for other people’s cultures. if it is not your own culture keep your mouth shut because you are making things a lot worst.

Speaking of those protests, I have no issue if you want to do that I mean it is freedom of speech but as soon as you start physically hurting people and property i have lost all my respect for you. I was okay with listening to the left but shall I tell you with what I am not okay with? hurting a child because he is wearing a MAGA hat. Watch the video here. This kids is getting abuse thrown at him for wearing a hat and believe in his president. He later gets punched and suspended from school because of his view. Now why weren’t these boys and girl suspended? they were in the wrong and that is my issue with the left that no matter what they seem to do they seem to be able to say it is freedom of speech and hurt someone and still get away with it. As soon as you expect that both sides have people who have done bad things the sooner I will less likely to a horrible person.

I get death threats on facebook because of my viewpoints and opinions. Yet I don’t attack people I just say I don’t think that is fair or right for you to be saying all theses things when the left have hurt people because of who they support. Hate me if you want, I really don’t care because please don’t ever lay a hand on anyone no matter what they believe in. Well unless they are trying to kill you, self defense and all that.

Fuck You Fake News!

I watched Trump’s spontaneous speech yesterday, I actually read it out to two of my housemates, both of them are a lot more left than I but once I read it out they said the words, I do believe he is trying to cover things up but if he does everything he says then at least he is trying to do a lot of good.

A lot of that speech was about fake news, now I have probably talked about this before because it is something I am passionate about because I do believe the media shouldn’t lie, but often it is the lies that make the money. When I read an article I check to see if there are sources, if the words ‘some sources’ are used then i looked for a different article because you need to actually know who says what when it comes to articles. For example I could say, sources tell us that Donald Trump has a green penis, that doesn’t mean it is true. I remember when i did history I would always have the words, “Which sources?” In the margins whenever I used the words “some sources tell us”, you need to actully use infomation that is creditable.

If it isn’t bogus facts, which are fucking up the public perception it is also the fact that they media are telling half truth, the immingration control for one thing.  According to the New York Times, around seven hundred people were held by immigration officers over the first fourty eight hours of this immigration control. I have not checked this number but it does seem to have caused the most outrange so I thought I would use it. Now that number is not huge in compassion to the year 2013, it is actually not that bad. On average 1200 people per day were held in dententions in the US, that is nearly double the amount of which happened when this order was implemented. Having gone to a boarding school I know plenty of people who would be questioned when coming back into the country. It may not be fair but they just want to double check those who fit the apperence on those who do wish to harm the population. By all means say that seven hundred people have been unfairly questioned but then also compare it to other infomation, because let me be honest the general population are thick.

I have an IQ of 124, which puts me in the top 91% of the population, I am smarter than the average person but that doesn’t mean that the average person needs to believe everything that is put in front of them. I like to check a lot of the facts that I use because I don’t want to become someone who uses there platform to in theory brainwash people in order to believe what they believe. We have got to be the moment in the time where all our media seems to be very  left wing, I don’t actually trust most of the right winged media so I am left somewhere in the middle not wanting to believe bias news and not wanting to believe manipulated news. What can I do? Not a lot.

I don’t have the power to preach to the masses, I may have a few hundred followers on here and on my twitter account and few thousand on my Instagram but they are following me because of my boobs not my blog. I want to make a difference but the only way I can get notice will cause a thousand different people to sent me death threats. I already get enough.

Saying the words I am a white conservative is like wanting people to suddenly hate you. I live in a world where I am allowed to express my opinions and I know not everything I will say people with agree with, I don’t even agree with my parents when it comes to politics. I was against Brexit and I supported Gary Johnson but I have very little issue when it comes to trump. I am not make sense all the time but I am a twenty one year old girl, I don’t even know who I am how can I know how i feel. If i see someone bashing Trump I try and get them to see the good, if I see people bashing Hillary I try and let them see the good she has done. Everyone has a good and a bad side to them and sometimes one is shown more than the other when it comes to the media.

I am a stronger believer than you need to give people a chance to show their true colours. I am the person who thinks the death pentaly should be scrapped. I think prison should be focused on educating people. I think that people who have an attraction to children but do not act on it should be helped and given dolls in hope of helping them with their condition. I believe that people don’t need to say they are transgender and try and change everything about them, I believe they should just wear and act how they want without saying “I am a male born in a female body” I believe that people choose to be offended. Regarding the whole Karrie Kloss thing and her dressing up as someone from Japan, unless you are from that country or have relatives from that country you cannot say you think what she has done is offensive to people of Japan. I have read the comments of a lot of those articles and most of them don’t even care, those who are actually from tha country. A few number of people (Most of which no nothing about Japan or it’s culture) made comments on twitter and studdenly the media starts saying that it is inappropriate.

In that theory white chicks is inappropriate, how dare two black guys dress up and two white blonde girls, that offended me SO much. Just to let know know I don’t care because it is a funny movie. Karlie did a good job showcasing another cultura and she should be praised for letting the fashion industry see that rather than getting bashed by the media due to a few people on twitter saying it is inappropriate, who aren’t even from that country.

My rant now is over, as I can’t be bothered to type anymore, just make sure you check those sources.

FUCK Valentines Day

Today I spent the day just like I would normally, I got up, I had a shower I did some work and I watch some god awful day time TV. With just minutes until the end of this day I thought I would write this. I hate valentine’s day. Now before loads of  people just say you are bitter and single, I do and fact have a boyfriend, he just happens to live on the other side of the country.  He sent me a message earlier asking me if I was watching the football and I said no, my housemate is spending time with his needy girlfriend. I know that sounds harsh, I live with two couples, one spent the whole day together the other treated the day just like any other day.

I honestly don’t see the fucking point in the day, if you feel the need to celebrate this so called day, then is your relationship really that good? If you need to throw all your emotions to the person you ‘love’ once a year, why don’t you do it every god damn day.

I grew up in a home that this so called day wasn’t a big deal, sure my parents gave each other a card and my dad brought home flowers but shall I tell you what my dad would randomly buy flowers throughout the year no matter the day.

I wanted to get this out because I honestly don’t get the whole thing about the day, to me it is only there just for companies to make money out of you. It wasn’t until the fourteenth century till Valentines day was even connected to love and romance. I just don’t want to be apart of a holiday which is about nothing more than money. It is not needed, like I said if you love each other you should be showing that every day not on this day.

You should be getting/giving flowers every other week. You should be going out on dates when ever you have time, you should be expressing love through letters and words. Why do you let it all out on this day? because like many people everyone has become so manipulated by the media and by the world that they feel the need to get absorbed in to consumerism.

HAPPY EVERY OTHER DAY
