Racism is not a mental illness. It is not genetic. It is taught.
There is such a thing as having a sex addiction while never having seen pornography. You can have a “wet dream” without ever having seen pornography. You can start masturbating at an early age without ever having seen pornography. You can get the idea of raping someone into your head without ever having been on the internet. You can use an item as a sex toy without ever having owned a sex toy.
I have no problem with adult entertainment. Keyword of that sentence being “adult”. What consenting adults chose to do with other consenting adults is not my business. I will, however, always take issue with child pornography, Bratz dolls, Monster High Halloween costumes intended for girls, sexy Halloween costumes for underage teens, men who sign up to the US army specifically for the chance to go to brothels in other countries where children are on the menu, Youtube allowing young women to make content about how great it is to be a cam girl or have an only fans, the fact that only fans and cam model websites having affiliate links for one to become a sex worker, and the fact that Netflix still has not removed the film “Cuties” from their collection.
I am fully aware that the only actions I can control are my own.
It doesn’t matter how many heathens you burn at the stake. You can put out as many “call to actions” as you want about the things going on in this world that you want to see gone, but you will always make an impact and change the minds of some of the people listening to you, never all of them. Even Giliad in “The Handmaid’s Tale” has a black market.
Even Giliad allows prostitution.
You want to change the world for women and children so badly?
Baby steps. That’s the only dent most of us will ever make for whatever cause we are fighting for, let alone women’s rights is baby steps. This “all or nothing” attitude has been, is, and will get us nowhere. The infighting that continues to go on about who is the correct leader for the cause is getting us nowhere. The factioning off into little microcosm communities both online and offline while stubbornly refusing to, at the end of the day, put personal bullshit aside once and for all and fight for the greater good is getting us nowhere. Pushing aside male allies who genuinely want to fight for these causes is getting us nowhere. The “greater good” that we need to put first is children.
Swallow your pride, stop bickering. Do work.
Yes, my thoughts are a complete cluster f*ck of word vomit when I talk about something I really care about. I am well aware of that, thanks. It is part of the package that is me.
There are people you meet in life that you do not like, but still respect.
When I tell someone “I don’t like you, but I respect you”, that is huge coming from me. People who don’t know me enough seem to underestimate that statement.
I don’t give respect to anyone who hasn’t earned it. An act of bravery, no matter how flawed, is still an act of bravery at the end of the day. I never expect perfection from anyone, but I d0 expect progress. People who are trying to evolve are not going to be immune to making mistakes along the way. Making a mistake does not negate the genuine efforts of someone who is trying to be the best version of themselves as they can be. That is why “cancel culture” is a load of B.S. to me. Showering someone who is trying to better their life with negativity and constantly accusing them of crying wolf is never going to help anyone’s physical and/or spiritual evolution.
I know what it is like to want to destroy someone because they destroyed you. More than some people will ever know. It’s diabolical, but it’s the truth.
Do any of y’all watch this show? My Mom and I used to watch it regularly but it got kind of stale for me. I’d rather look at the highlight clips on Youtube. Saves everyone a lot of time. My favorite one was the Machine Gun Kelly episode.
So you were friends with someone for a long time and they were talking shit about you behind your back for the duration of your friendship. If you had any sense in your head you would know that someone like Shane Dawson, who talks shit about everyone behind their backs, means that they are talking about YOU too. It is just a given.
Make one statement regarding how you feel about breaking up with a friend and let it freakin’ go already. You don’t see me making endless blog posts about somebody I thought was a friend turning on me, and I have an actual diagnosed mental illness that has left me too disabled to work a regular 9-5 job or a lot of the times makes everyday mundane tasks like cleaning a room feel like a Herculean effort, unlike you with your fake multiple personality crap. I take my meds, I talk to my therapist once a week, I try to at the very least to do all of the chores my parents ask me to do around the house while being a single mother to a nonverbal kid who has not been paid a lick of child support. I have to do unconventional things to make money for myself because even though I don’t have a “real job”, you are never ever going to catch me mooching or stealing off of any of my family members or anybody I consider a friend. Yes I would love if people donated to my blog all the time or that I could get bigger tips or that I could get more steady freelance work during this God-awful pandemic, but you don’t see me whining about it as much as you whine about Shane being two-faced.
I will always find my own way of making money first before I ever become dependent on a family member or a loved one to pay for all my expenses. Whatever money I get is in good faith and I’m not afraid to even donate a couple of bucks here and there. My life does not revolve around money, but clearly yours does.
If I can manage to shut up about the end of a friendship and move on, you can too.
If you’re part Irish like I am, you already know that the most important thing one needs for pale skin care products that have the highest levels of SPF (sun block) you can get.
I may be a Jersey girl, but I gave up trying to tan naturally during the early years of high school. That is honestly so weird for me since I had no problem getting a tan when I was rather young. I went from easily getting a farmer tan to taking Dracula-like precautions when it came to staying out of direct sunlight.
One product I used in high school was Cover Girl’s tinted moisturizer. It was the first product with an SPF that did not make me break out. I have inherited my father’s sensitive skin, so any time I mention something does not make me break out, you really don’t have a choice but to believe me.
The version of CG Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer has been discontinued and is now sold as a “BB” cream (hover over picture to buy off of amazon.com). It unfortunately does not come in a big variety of colors, and wish it did.
When you do research to find what the best products for pale skin are, you are going to see a lot of Korean brands pop up. I believe it is because in Korea, when it comes to someone’s skin complexion, the fairer the better. I whole-heartily disagree there. If someone started a reputable skin care and makeup line specifically for darker completions (meaning foundation, powder and concealer), they would make a TON of money.
Here are some SPF products I found that have the best SPF while still being good for your skin (hover over the images to buy each item on amazon):
