Kind of a follow-up post to my previous one lies in the wreckage of my poor, confused mind.

I absolutely adored Sociology when I was in schooling and I so stand behind equality and human rights. It makes me question though when I see extremists take things a bit to far and claim to be someone they are not. 

For example, radically extreme people who are claiming to be feminists. It’s cool to see girls and guys standing up for equal rights but some are just missing the actual point by leaps and bounds.

Feminism is about equality and being treated as an equal for social rights, economic rights, as well as cultural rights for women. It is borderline with the rights of equalists; both strive towards the goal of both sides being equal- not one superior or inferior to the other.

Sadly though, some people nowadays don’t see it that way. Instead of creating positive equalism on both sides, it’s now completely one side or the other.

Here’s a suggestion: STOP FUCKING GENDER- ROLING THE SHIT OUTTA THINGS!

You are not going to go any further by bashing one side or the other and putting one or the other in the spotlight while claiming to be a feminist. That’s kind of diminishing the point of equalism that you’re looking for.

Another thing…

One of my good friends was shit on by a load of people who claim to be ‘feminists’ when all she asked was for people to be seen as people. Equals. Not one superior to the other. No labelling posts or people because of their gender. Now THAT is finding true equality for both. Once you start seeing a person for their personality- not their sex. That’s how you will get equality.

Please be kind and do research before you bash someone . We are all on this planet together and should treat each other with respect and not be assholes.

Alrighty, time to let some inner rage out on the interweb about some intergalactic craziness. 

Have I got you interested or intrigued? Ok. I’ll stop with the ‘In’s”

Recently what sparked this oh-so-glorious little rage-osity rant were a little compilation of numerous posts about the new Star Wars movie.

We first saw the whole new rise of the revealed black storm trooper. THEN we saw a female lead. You know what we also saw? Some hidden sexism and racism arising from the shit piles.

To me, growing up, I was taught to not see in colour, but to see people for people. I do not judge people for their ethnicity, sexuality, gender,etc. I saw this talented man and woman as fantastic actors that filled out the roles that were sought out for the script. To me, they are people. They are equal. 

It really doesn’t matter if you chose someone who had a penis or vagina for a certain role. If they are a great actor- they deserve it. It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white or purple with fucking green polka dots. You know what? You’re still a good actor. 

Instead of focusing on the primary and most important focal point of the new Star Wars movie, people are turning it into a heated subject over what genitalia someone has, and how we should completely balance the gender roles.

If you take a step and look at it like I have, coming from a neutral stand point and seeing people for people, you will realize that by people bringing up these touchy subjects, we are still promoting segregation, in a sense. 

IF we choose to strive towards full gender and race/ethnicity equality, we will stop seeing people for what their reproductive organs and flesh colour are. IF we truly want people to be equal…stop mentioning the differences. Only you are continuing to segregate one group from another.

We should all be able to live on this amazing Mother Earth as one. Blessed be and be kind to your fellow brothers and sisters this holiday season. 

Ps- Happy Belated Yule / Winter Solstice to my fellow witches. xox

As I was driving in the car and surpassed one of the churches I couldn’t help but notice by far one of the most disturbing church signs I have ever witnessed in my life so far.

You know how some churches will put up different sayings on their advertising boards- some quirky and some not so quirky- to get your attention? Well, I just found the holy grail -pardon the pun- of pretty darn awful signage yet.

“Satan’s Cause is coming to town!”

WHAT IN THE FLYING PURPLE -PEOPLE-EATER -GONE- WILD FUCK?! 

For those of you who don’t know me, I am Wiccan, first of all. Wiccans don’t believe in Satan. Little fact for those who think we worship Satan because of the pentagram (there are different pentagrams!!!!) We choose not to believe in something horrid like Satan or the fact you’re a sinner and no matter what you do in life you’ll go to hell. We simply believe in three-fold: what you give to this earth and the energy you give shall be what you receive. To be honest, kids should not be exposed to this kind of signage at all. Yes, I can see where they are sort of coming from in regards to people being greedy as balls and completely ungrateful for the gifts they do receive, so they’re trying to emphasize one of the seven sins. 

Just saying, telling a child that if they dare do something wrong they are eternally damned and they might- JUST MIGHT- make it through the pearly gates if they go repent.

Making mistakes -or committing any of the sins- is completely human. There’s nothing wrong if you accidentally do something wrong and you learn from it; you shouldn’t be told you will be going to hell because of it. Even if you do something wrong intentionally, as with anything, it will come and nip you in the bud.

For this time of year though, the church should just simmer the fuck down though and just let the kiddos have fun, and not fucking terrify them by calling Santa ‘Satan’. 

By the way, church…You do realize putting up Christmas trees are Pagan, right? Also the symbolic eggs and rabbits during Easter are Pagan as well because it symbolizes fertility – the start of all life happens in the spring.

Anyways…have you all seen anything just completely out there this holiday season? I’ve also seen out there those phallic lights….they did make me laugh, not gonna lie. Feel free to comment any crazy stuff you’ve seen!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah , Happy Ramadan! To everyone this upcoming season and blessed be x

Cosplaying.

Costume roleplaying, if ya wanna be frank about what the hell the word means.

In today’s society it’s like a fantasy come to life for the geeks at heart and the…..chicks who think Spock is from Star Wars. (Side note- for my to make that purposeful flaw was beyond hard to type ..kept putting Star Trek down.)

Yes, I’m a geeky girl. I legit broke my Return of the Jedi VHS ..well, not rage broke it, I wore that shit out! But I don’t effing understand logic…well kinda..when it comes to today’s cosplayers and “geek girls”. For those of you -and I’ve seen y’all amazing chickas at the Cons getting your on fleek cosplaying on! Props to you amazing gals!- pay no attention, but I’m sure you have noticed what I have been noticing a lot at cons…

chicks who bare all , but have no idea what the hell they are cosplaying as/what the film is/or anything geekery…they just wanna see guys salivate.

Like some characters are sexy, so yeah cool if you dress exactly like them because you’re replicating the character which is the point of cosplay. But if I see another sexy Ewok, C3PO or effing Jar Jar Binks- or lord forbid, jabba- I’m gonna kick your ass all the way to Endor and back and the impact from it just might land ya in Hoth!

It’s cool too to kinda have your own flair on a costume too, but don’t make it borderline porno or soooo far away from the character you basically designed a new one. Just don’t. Check the rules at the Cons…a lotta them are family friendly, so if you’re borderline showing your genitilia, that’s not cool, bro.

What got me thinking about this was when I was talking to my boyfriend about next years Hal Con…I’m going as Poison Ivy. Yes , I know it’s a sexy character, but I know how to not overstep the boundaries. My inspiration for the version of Ivy I will be replicating is the cartoon version that was modelled after Bettie Page. Off the bat I realized that this character is sexy and alluring, but I know how to make it fit and not be bare all. Remember…if ya give em something to think about and be mysterious, it’s more alluring! I mean, I go all out for cosplaying…hell, my hair is even gonna be dyed red for the occasion and I’m making my outfit all by hand , including the leaves !

Anyways..what are your thoughts? I wanna hear from you genuine geeky girls and guys !
