Open Minds......??!??!

Uhm, all these things just have minds of their own, I mean gadgets. I have not had time to take the lappy to the Doc.’s but I wasn’t even ready anyway. I have finally gotten my pictures off of it. Funny enough, it is working better now that the memory has more space but I am still taking it there because na money I pay for warranty.

I wanted to do “My Bag” meme only for me to realize that my memory card was broken. It has the pictures of the bag and stuff because I had taken the shots weeks ago. Anyhoo, I refuse to let that depress me or stop me from updating.

How have you been my luvies? I have been doing some blog rounds and reading your amazing stories. You guys are just the bomb!!!

9jaFOODie, please put up a post concerning peppersoup using any type of meat. I used to make a mean pot of it but I attempted making it after about 6 years of “hibernation”. Let’s just say the Lord is the shepherd of all those who partook of the meal. Conveniently, it is still in the refrigerator and that tells me something since I live with gluttons 

       If you live in NY, then you probably know that your freedom of speech has been reduced, yet again, thanks to Cuomo (abi whatever his name is). Same-sex marriage bill has been passed. 

Whoop whoop for the LGBT group….(Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender), you are now official...legit………………..
…..but not for me. 

      Homosexuality is a sensitive topic, almost taboo but I still have an opinion about it. It still remains a “no-no” for anybody who thinks he/she matters to me. Pellet me now!!! There is not enough argument in this world to convince me that homosexuality is an ok thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not an extremist but it just doesn’t strike me as a normal interaction for humans hence, I regard it almost as an ailment. While I don’t aim to be convinced, it is still very interesting for me to catch a glimpse into their lives. The confusion is endless and could be entertaining too.

       A couple in Canada had a baby but refused to disclose the sex to anybody, save the baby’s brother and the doctor (of course). Their reason? Oh, they want the baby to be able to make a choice of sex when it grows up ( I know I used it, it is just easier to used that instead of trying to be politically correct…what does that even mean sef?)

      In the same vein, a pre-school in Sweden called “Egalia” is the first school of that nature to try its hands at gender neutrality. The kids refer to one another as “friends” and not “him” or “her”.  They are trying to counter the society’s idea of conformance, based on gender. I particularly find it funny because they are doing precisely what they are standing against. Let me explain. The society, by Egalia interpretation says that girls are to pink as boys are to blue. So to counter this, they are raising a bunch of kids in nonconformance to societal “rules”. To me, what they are doing is precisely a subset of what the society is doing. The school’s management is imposing its belief/rebellion on these poor kids who don’t know any better. Can I ask, what is determines the sex of a child?! What the parents say? What the child says? Or what some over-zealous bunch say? As far as I am concerned, it is black or white……no greys! It has a vagina/putang/punany/pussy, it is a girl. It has a penis/dick/Johnson/wee-wee/whateva-fancy-name-you-call-it, then it is a boy. I know you all are smarty pants, so I know you are about to asking about what if it has both. Well, in that case, it is a “blessed”! On a more serious note, having the two is considered abnormal…shikena!

        Sometime ago, I watched a show. The star used to be a lady, might I say a very beautiful lady. She was even a model. I think in her 20’s she decided that she didn’t want to be a girl anymore so she got a sex change. That would have put her conveniently in the transgender group, right? Wrong! It later got married to a girl and guess what?! It got pregnant! It had opted to retain its womb (and apparently some other like organs too) during the sex change because it wanted to “experience child carrying/bearing”. So tell me why the caption for the show read something like “Man gives birth”. Does that even make sense?!!!

          Moving on swiftly, the whole situation reminds me of a situation with my younger brother. He was a very adorable kid. Growing up, he looked very much like a girl and had a thin voice like one too. I would dress him up in my gowns and use clip on earrings on him for fun. Now, he is much older than he used to be. He is still very adorable and even allowed me to put full make up on him on the eve of my departure to school last year. It was the most hilarious thing ever (at least to us). He was even brave enough to put up the pictures on FB. And yes, you guessed it right, several comments flew in, from outright accusations to disguised pleas. We were just siblings, having fun in our own way, hurting no one. But of course, everything one does now has connotations.

        It is funny to see how the dynamics of human relations have changed over the years because like a virtual person said the people’s “minds are so open, their brains fell out.”

      Oh well, at the end of the day, it is still you as a person (attitude-wise), sans your achievement/sexual orientation/position who still matters. But you can’t blame a girl for wishing for a life with less confusion.

    Or you still think it is not confusing? Tell me, for what reason do we have male and female bathrooms/bedrooms separately? With the newly accepted dynamics, isn’t the purpose defeated now?! 

    Go figure…….

It got so bad that against my better judgement,I attempted bloghopping from work, on the coy's computer. I have no idea of whose blog I was on when this scary Malware alert popped up. I had to call the IT department for help. So picture me, a green horn and girl who is only a 2week old intern, almost causing a security breach.....uhm....***the things blogsville will make me do***
I am trying to go buy an external hard drive to transfer my files onto before I take the lappy for repairs. I mean, if not anything else, I have pictures that tell at least 3000 stories. (No, I am not a photgrapher by profession).Hopefully, this will be over soon...cos I am this close to losing my mind.

Blog yawl soon again...and I miss u sooooo deng much!!!!
