Race Story video idea

July 8, 2018

Some Years ago UK had this video where a able-body character had a dream where  disabled folks were the majority and able-bodies were the minority.    Due to the drama (ie gun shooting)  that happening in both U.S. and in Toronto.  As well as non-People of Colour  Police treating POCs badly because they (the police) and non-police believing that POCs are criminals.

 

 

Well I have this idea of a similar idea but only you have a Caucasian male (Mike Myers? Dan Akroyd? Bascially any white male who isn’t Justin Biber). having a similar dream to the above but only instead of it being disabled folks being the majority it would be First Persons,  African-Canadian,  South Asian, basically People of Colour being the majority and cops (played by POCs) can “card” the white person  Also if he goes into a store,  POC employees can follow him around like he’s going to steal something.    It might give people a better idea of what People of Colour have to deal with on a daily basis

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”.

K IS NOT A TERRORIST!!

July 11, 2017

Here in Canada, the Canadian government has recently  reward 10.5 million dollars and an apology  to Khadar for  the lack of his human rights when  he  had been imprisoned in the Guantanamo Bay since 2002 when he was 15.

 

It’s annoying a lot of people treat him like a terrorist. I mean it’s not like all those young men who run off to Iraq,etc by THEMSELVES because they want to be DAESH otherwise known as ISIS. His FATHER took him there and LEFT him and forced him to become a child soldier which the U.S. has a law or used to which says child soldiers are not complicit if they kill anyone since they’re forced too that or risk being killed themselves.

 

About him confessing to killing of the Utah soldier  here are a couple of facts 1)he doesn’t remember anything about that DAY. 2)He’s partly blind because of being a child solider 3) if we look at history-anyone WHO IS TORTURED WOULD CONFESS TO A CRIME that might might not HAVE committed.  Not to mention he had NO legal representation which is the right of a Canadian citizen.

Why is everyone treating a mentally ill man as a MURDER?

June 27, 2017

In January 2011 a mentally ill man,  Richard Kachkar, accidentally killed a police officer with a stolen snowplough when he was off his medications. The police officer stepped in front of the moving snow plough thinking he could somehow get it to stop by stepping in front of it.    Kachkar was arrested and and deemed not criminally responsible.  He was recently released  this year and even more recently allowed to see his daughter but he needs constant supervision to make sure he stays on his meds.

 

What annoys me the most is  the fact is the Police officer’s widows and others like her treat him everytime they speak of Kachkar as if he INTENDED to kill the said  police officer and it drives me completely NUTS.  Kachkar NEVER intended to kill ANYONE the police officer was an fool for stepping in front of a moving vehicle.

Why Sims team is being quiet about Sims 4

June 23, 2014

I personally believe that we shouldn’t blame the Sims team/Maxis for keeping mum about some stuff. We should be blaming the publishing company instead for making them keep quiet. I bet it’s EA behind the fact the hidden woohoo skill been removed not something the developers did by choice. If Maxis didn’t need EA in the first place EA wouldn’t be able to um boss Maxis around by telling them what they can or can’t talk about or have in their game.

Why are people blaming Disney for runing a story just because of their Pochantas Sequel?!

May 12, 2013

Disney  did NOT event the Pocahontas saving John Smith Myth.  The REAL John Smith (who was either dark haired or ginger, had a beard, and was overweight and was 5’4′ ) was the one who made the entire love myth surrounding him and Pochantas (who by then was known as Rebeca) and another thing Pocahontas’ real Native American name was Matoaka. Years after the supposedly event. John Smith (the real one) is the one who first called Pochantas a “Princesses”. So the argument in Disney-verse about wether or not she’s a princess, can be applied to Real Pocahontas, also because the Real John Smith called her that.

All Disney Princesses have something postive about them! Part 1

May 5, 2013

I hate that people say all the Princesses have nothing postive about them (especially the older ones).  So this article is going to do in the order of the movie release of their respective movie.

Snow White (1937)

Snow White is kind, gentle, and also optimistic  Snow is not wishing for a man at the beginning of the movie according to enlightened princesses’ blog. She is just wishing that someone would treat her nicely since ever since the death of her father when she was somewhere between the ages of 4-6 (and she’s 14 in the movie), she like Cinderella after her, had to become a servant in her own castle.  Snow had to run away since with her still alive, she will always be in danger when the Queen was still alive too.  Snow was motherly to the dwarves. I mean she cooked and clean in exchange for a place to stay-I mean what else could she have done? Work in the main where she would have just gotten in the way and be called a lazy ass?  So what if she was bossy, who would want slobs at a table?   Yes she did sing later about the prince, but hey like I said before, as long as she and the Queen are both still alive, Snow is always in danger so the only way for her to get out of danger is to go to another kingdom (like the Prince’s) to be able to have her ‘Happily Ever After” . Even in the OUAT (2012) TV show, even though Snow’s a bad-ass, even in modern day (where almost all Storybook charries are) Snow and her family are in danger every second because of Regina’s latest thing.  Yes she was a DID (Damsel in Distress) after she ate the apple, but what do you expect, she was under a SPELL.

Cinderella (1950)

Cinderella like Snow before here has been wishing for someone to treat her nicely, after years of  being abused and humliated in her own home. I mean seriously, there are no women’s shelters, abuse hotlines,etc back in those days. So staying put was a better situation (and got her a higher one) then if she had just ran away earlier. Unlike Snow White, you can tell she has years of pent-up anger with the step-family. For instance she might have hit the cat if the invitation hadn’t arrive. Also didn’t you see her smirk when she  has the invitation and says “Maybe I will interrupt?” since she knows her step-sisters are terribly non-musical. Cinderella also stood up to her step-mother, when she reminded Lady Tremaine, that herself,  Ella, was an unmarried women and so was invited to the ball.  Also didn’t you see her pleasure, when she got the glass slipper out of her pocket  Why doesn’t she yell her head off when the duke is in the house?  How about for two reasons, 1)her bedroom is in a tower attic.. so the Duke would have 20/20 chance of hearing her so not a lot of change. 2)If the movie shows correctly her room, faces the barnyard..so the only ‘person’ who would hear her would be Major the horse. I mean when Ella realize the Prince wouldn’t come, she went and got him instead.

I suggest people watch the live-action “Ever After” if they want to see one way Ella’s life could have been a lot worse.

Sleeping Beauty

Despite the fact she gets very little screen time in the movie. While yes she’s the title character, but the whole movie is actually about  the conflict around her/about her? She still does have a personality. Like her predecessors she has the ability to talk to animals (even though like Snow White, they don’t answer back) and she actually does chores for her ‘aunts’ (gathering berries). Besides she made sure Prince Phillip was the prince of her dreams.  I mean most of the stuff she didn’t have any role over. Aurora like the other “Sleeping” princess, Snow White,  is a princesses by birth.  I mean did she run off with her dream prince after finding out she’s a princesses? No she doesn’t, she goes back to her home castle to due the duty toward her future subjects. That’s saying something. Also most girls would love to be princesses, right? Well us viewers see her crying twice, when she finds out that she’s a princess and is not allowed to see her ‘dream man’ and also when she gets the tiara from the fairies. When she was under the trance, she did break out of it for a moment when the good faries were calling her name. So it not like she was 100% in trance.
