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
