Enough isn’t Enough

January 13, 2018

I was reading the Toronto Star  today this article: Enough is Enough  and I was really ticked off by the FEMALE columnist’s attitude towards the women who have stepped forward and mentioned that men like Harvey Weienstien, Kevin Spacey, Albert Schultz among other men whom basically treated women like an object or property they owned-  who says that those women should “get over” with being touched/felt/etc and get on with their work.  But these men presumably have a mix of the 50’s and 60s ideas. (The 60s idea is that women go to college to get an MRS degree while the 50s idea is that women should be “barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen”).

 

The PBS News hour on Thursday night, economists were discussing a study  an undergraduate  has done about words used to describe young women on the economist job market vs. young men.  The words for women were “breast”, “whore”  and “hot”  “bitch” among others like pregnant, dating, marry/marrying, rape/dating,  “attractive”  not one thing about how good their mind is or their ability to do the work while men were describe with words like  “empirical” “Data” “Monetary”  and “fiscal”.

 

We need to do two things 1)teach boys from a young age the oppiste sex aren’t objects to be their toys but are fellow human beings  2)We also need to teach girls that they should speak out if someone even a RELATIVE touches them in a way that is “wrong”.

Checking of the Media on the Disabled

March 7, 2014

I read the newspaper practically everyday  and I like it when disabled people or their families  stand up for themselves or for them.  Well I think that instead of forgetting about the disabled person in two years time or so that media should check back to see if the discriminators are still working on what they were planning on working on. [1]For instance  in April of last year  Peter Stelmacovich, who is heard-of-hearing  whose was asked to  either leave his service dog outside or sit outside because of the dog. The plan was after it became public that the restaurant would  become more ‘disabled-friendly’ with help from the disabled man.  I’m wondering if the restaurant back down from the plan/deal after the media went away.  Or  about last [2]What about the  story about   Steve Simonar who has  no arms beat his seat-belt ticket because of the fact he couldn’t wear a seat belt without help? Or why didn’t the guy know about (new rules)?  [3]Or what about the backlash for the women Even Synder whose was told  in 2010  at a Buffet that her service dog wasn’t allowed to be in the buffet line ‘for health reasons’  and then was thrown out and yet she been at the same restaurant that summer with no problems.  This last one is a clear volition of Canada’s Human Rights. [4]What about the family in Oshawa with the autistic son who got a letter that basically said that the kid should be put down like a dog? I mean have the police either 1)found the culprit or , 2)given up?

Breastfeeding in other countries being frowned upon?/Breasts being considered Sexual objects

May 18, 2012

NOTE: I DO NOT MEAN TO OFFEND ANY AMERICANS.

 

On the official Sims 3 site. There is a topic about breast feeding (if the OP had put BF into the title oringally, I would have tried to stay clear of it but she/he didn’t). Well according to my parents and everything I can find, the whole frowning on breast feeding is because the Puritans (who one of my ancestors was one) viewed breasts as sexual objects and sex was “evil”. Yes Puritans did breastfeed children, but still breasts were still considered sex objects like they still are today* I am trying to find other countries where breast feeding is frowned upon. In the U.K its only frowned up if the kids is over a year old. In France it doesn’t seem like a big deal.

 

One of the stories I found? A male doctor was touring a hospital in the Middle East, and accidently came upon an area where there was a group of women who were  breastfeeding. When the women say him, they all dove for a cover for their heads.

Another story I have found is that somewhere in Monglia, two toddlers were fighting and the two moms and all the last of the women in the room started to lift up their shirts and flap their breasts and call to the toddlers to come and nurse and there were MEN present.

 

I do know that a lot of people suggested that women who breast feed should cover the baby up with a blanket or something. But doesn’t that’s just makes the breast more sexual? or doesn’t it just draw more attention to the breasts?

Why should woman who breastfeed be moved to a restroom room or something? Would YOU like to eat in a bathroom? So if you don’t want to eat in the bathroom, a baby shouldn’t.

My mom has a story about me. We were at the Ex  and mom was breastfeeding me and there was an elderly couple nearby that mom walked past. I can’t remember what my mom said the man said, but the man’s wife said “What do you expect the baby to drink Pepsi?”

But its seems like America gets the majority of the bad reputation for “frowning” upon breastfeeding. I mean just look: Facebook, Putting Breastfeeding back on Sesame Street (which did have breast feeding in 1970s and ‘80s), and the latest scandal over the cover of the Time Maginzie

 

TORONTO STAR VS FORD, FORD JUST RELEASED THE TAPE TO THE MEDIA!!!

May 5, 2012

In Toronto there this case because the major newspaper The Toronto Star and the Toronto mayor Rob Ford. On Wednesday, Ford applied for what he called “vacant” land next to his property to build a bigger fence for his children.  The Reporter Dale, said the TRCA said that the land in question is actually a bit of parkland with mature trees. Dale said the map, TRCA gave him was very confusing, that’s why he ended up BEHIND Fords house.

so proof 1)the picture which was released in today’s paper, the blocks were too far apart for ANYONE to be standing on. 2)Dale never SAW the blocks didn’t even know they there. So 1)Ford’s lying 2)his neghbiour is in cahoots with him too.  3)Ford has a history of lying and a history of having fits when he doesn’t get his own way.  5)since he’s not releasing the video that they supposedly have of Dale  it means its disapproves his story or why else is he hiding it?  I bet anything (which I don’t) if the police said anything about the video, the police are in Cahoots with Ford too. As they were with the incident in October with the This Hour has  22mins comedian

 

Why didn’t he just call the police? I mean Ford supposedly had death threats.  what if it was his ex-brother in law?
