Fact Resistant Unenlightened Females

Seems to me in the face of all evidence to the contrary of a particular choice, basically making their lives more miserable these unenlightened females forge ahead so confidently without awareness of their own ineptitude. Warnings from female friendly wise and thoughtful people are ignored . They mistakenly assess their own cognitive ability as greater than it really is and are not ready to accept their own errors. The wise females are content knowing that their decisions or opinions are well analysed and researched instead of buying in to the popular theories concocted by frivolous experts and are not afraid to stand up to other females who are still living in an augmented reality due to their conditioning. The continuity of our world depends on the fact resistant unenlightened females becoming aware of their own brain washed conditioning  and respecting females who are trying their best to achieve an equal status in the modern times for all women.

“What does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates… and many of us said, ‘That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like,” she added, referring to the election of the President. Michelle Obama spoke to the women who voted against their own welfare in the last election. I am glad another women with a higher degree of experience and knowledge in the political realm explained the reason behind why most women chose the current primitive sub human instead of a valid candidate. This is a great point she made unfortunately for women it is hard to expunge the millennia of conditioning that has made them slaves to the patriarchy. Its like having been brain washed for centuries in to believing that someone else is responsible for their well being and this shackle is not something to be eradicated from their collective psyche expeditiously. A woman who has this deep-seated belief in handing-over her well being to a man can’t be held responsible for listening to him as to what is good for her.

“Women are disadvantaged by the impossible standards that attach to work by women entering fields dominated by men, and vulnerable, too, to the condemnation of women” the director referring to the super hero movie ‘Wonder Woman’ which was a movie that was well received by audiences but still was dissected with a fine tooth comb for flaws. I think this movie was marvelous compared to the other few hundred male super hero movies that do not even meet the basic premise of good movies sometimes. It goes to show the difference between the impossible standards thrust upon a woman and the mediocre effort expected from a man.

I am writing this post because I recently learned that 40 years since the Senate passed the ERA.  It is is still not part of the constitution because the United States still has not ratified the equal rights amendment for women(ERA)

Wisdom of being unselfish

Less than 10 years ago, Conor Mcgregor was homeless. While homeless he met a woman named Dee Devlin. She took him off the streets, moved Conor into her tiny apartment and fed him daily.

All she ever asked was that he worked hard and believe in himself. She struggled to buy expensive healthy food so Conor could train and stay focused… but she stuck by him.

ONLY 6 years ago, Conor was a plumber… barely living above poverty, but Dee stuck by him.

Last saturday night, Dee sat in in attendance to once again support her man while he made over 100 MILLION dollars to add to his already successful new life.

Believe in yourself and find people to surround yourself with who believe in you as well. Life is too short to keep your circle full of people who will watch you fail.

Don’t EVER let your circumstances or people hold you down. Get out there and take what’s yours! No excuses!

GOT got me singing Hands of Gold

Hands of Gold | Lyrics
He rode through the streets of the city,

Down from his hill on high,

O’er the wynds and the steps and the cobbles,

He rode to a woman’s sigh.

For she was his secret treasure,

She was his shame and his bliss.

And a chain and a keep are nothing,

Compared to a woman’s kiss

For hands of gold are always cold,

But a woman’s hands are warm

If you are an ardent book reader or fan of fantasy novels, Game of Thrones has got to be on top of your list of must read books, for me it takes the cake. It s not surprising that GRRM has not finished this masterpiece because just the details of character creations and construction of the plot it self must have been an amazing feat to under take at this scale. He has masterfully done justice to the story using his great imaginative skills , When they decided to create a HBO series out of these books they were amazed by the number of characters and the locations they will need in order to create a true to life series. I am glad they managed to create this wonderful work of art using the books and when you apply the details from the books how authentic the shows turns out to be. I experienced the score written for the series first hand by Ramin Djawadi and I got to say its a concert that’s etched in my brain. This is a show that that only could be created when extremely talented folk put their amazing skills together.

The premier of season 7 begins with Arya taking the sweet revenge she longed for and it was truly satisfying to see that winter came for house Frey. Sansa is also now far from the scared little girl she was, she is now a formidable force to be reckoned with and she by far had the cruelest teacher in Cersei, Daenerys is finally home and in her rightful place, She has traveled far and experienced the cruelty of so many tribes of people that taking the iron throne may seem like a walk in the park. This show may even be one of the only shows on TV with so many main roles are women, and not only are they women but in this case they are fearless and brave. This has been a show watched by many who are mostly men but the beauty is GRRM manged to convince the audience, it matters not if the heroes are male or female, flawed or righteous, good or bad, it only matters how much depth a character holds. when he published his first GOT book in 1996 this plot line would hardly seem plausible with so many females in lead roles, but fast forward 20 years people don’t even seem to question his decision to include so many female leaders in Westeros & Esos . I think this is why this book and series are a gem, in a time females are still undervalued as citizens here comes a story to depict the females just as capable, just as ruthless and just as formidable as their male counterparts. I love GOT and I am not ashamed to admit it because it is truly a fantastic story with women leading all the way to the end of the world

The secret meaning of Ed Sheeran’s Game of Thrones character – and the song he sings

Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice

In his book, Letters and Papers from Prison, Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote:”Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed — in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical — and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self-satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for when dealing with a stupid person than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.”

Why I Admire Hillary Clinton

It’s now very clear all the stories you come to learn about the human struggle for respect in our history are not mere footnotes to be discarded, this is the slow progress of human evolution. Evolving as you know doesn’t occur overnight. The eyons of time that is needed for the changes to take hold for a better understanding of fellow man is just at its cusp. Humanity’s ability to cast out their selfish nature and embrace  its global consciousness will determine the plight of the human cause.

I was born at a time and place to people who didn’t treat me differently due to my race, gender or social class. So I didn’t grow up understanding that women are not able to persue their life goals the same way a man can. And that lead me in life to places and situations I never would have been if not for that indiscriminate life I was brought up in. I did not know any better until I started my journey in the world of man. I learnt that women are not treated as equals, women are not allowed to do as they please, religions run by men have dictated their own agenda to keep a woman in her rightful place, that men dictated how you should dress, be and how she takes care of her own body. Until I experienced the real world in its true nature I did not realize I am a second class citizen and I will never be granted my rightful freedom as a mere human to be the best person I could be. This I believed all trough out my childhood as the only way to be. Thankfully my wonderful parents never made me feel inferior because of my gender and even now I am blessed with a husband who doesn’t dictate to me about how to be a woman in a mans world. I feel blessed but saddened at the plight of my fellow women who were not given the same opportunities just merely because they were born a woman. We tend to forget the plight of others when we have been blessed with so many chances to live freely, most women I think still are in the grips of sexist society where they will never know what it is to be born free to think, be and live as an equal to a man. This is a crying shame and I always think if I had a daughter I would not make her feel inferior due to her gender or put any of my unnecessary expectations on her. 

I finally come to the point I want to get across. Hilary Clinton came from a background just like many of us women seeing her mothers struggle and was lucky enough to have the ability to attend the best schools and achieve the ability to run for president against a number of men inferior to her in knowledge and achievement but nevertheless she persisted. She never was given any position easily, she fought for every ounce of success, the many enemies she accumulated in her career made it their mission to see her fail but nevertheless she persisted. You may say any other qualified and successful woman wouldn’t be treated the way she was, I disagree. Any woman trying to prove their equal ability in a mans world will go through a similar attack and in my opinion only a woman who is willing to fight and only a woman as qualified has the chance  to be recognized as a truly great president. Any woman trying to achieve this feat is a super woman and has to be at least 200%more qualified than a man to become the president of USA. There is a long way to go for women to be taken seriously but at least there was one who tried and failed because they are apparently “poorly educated”and extremely sexist(this category includes women unfortunately)I am honored in my lifetime there was a strong woman leader showing how it’s done even through failure because if a woman can’t accept defeat they have already lost their battle against a rigged system.

THE MAN IN THE ARENA                                          Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic”

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
