This Is Special…

So…this 12 year old girl just ‘helped’ deliver her baby bro – you know…as you do! There was no panicked emergency that necessitated it, just a decision that this was probably the 3rd and last child that mother Zadyn Dellapena would be having, so…why not?!

Her name is Jacee and the doc, Dr Walter Wolfe apparently asked if she wanted to deliver the baby, upon which she was fitted with scrubs and the rest is internet history.

As you will see, she was not just pootling around in the room at the time, as kids might do at a home birth, she was all up in the business end of the delivery and was the first to welcome the newborn sprog Cadyn.

Look at her face though! 🙂

Loving the matching expressions!

Quite amazing huh?!

Well, this is it… It IS amazing, but I’m still not sure how I feel about it. Am I pro or con? I dunno!

Not sure how to articulate exactly what I have a problem with…not even sure I have a problem.

So I have to turn once more to you guys.

SCHOOL ME! – WHAT SAY YOU?!

It’s natural you fool! It’s the greatest thing since sliced bread and all 12 year olds should be doing this!

OR

Has that child got no homework she should be doing?!

Sad News As A Woman Dies…

A woman named marinna rollins had charge of a handsome little pit bull named Huey whom she was looking after whilst her estranged husband was stationed in Korea. Huey had been adopted from an animal shelter in Cumberland County, North Carolina, so one can imagine that he had already experienced the arse end of humanity.

She and her boyfriend jerren heng took Huey to a wooded park, tied him to a tree and shot him multiple times whilst recording the event and laughing. heng can be heard asking to shoot the dog also. A friend of theirs posted the video on Facebook in the hopes that it would highlight their actions and lead to punishment.

I was very saddened to hear that the woman was found dead in her home on Sunday.

It was suicide and not payback.

Shocking Video

the insanity of humanity lg

 

The video depicts what appears to be a re-occurring theme of the typical treatment of African maids who are forced to work in the Gulf States.

WARNING! NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.

The video can be seen here.

 

When / if you view it, let me know what it makes you think or feel, because whilst it’s shocking I’m not surprised by it…which is not a good thing.

And just so you know, the dialogue is something along the lines of

‘Help me! Help me!’

‘Get up you crazy woman.’

What Say You?

Where do we file this one?

The March

the-march

Like something from a century ago or indeed something from quite a few current cultures, women (and men) took to the streets on Saturday 21st January in opposition to the denigration of women and a divisive US president prone to eyebrow-raising misogyny amongst other things.

The March appears to represent a fluent meaning depending on who you talk to. To some it would have elicited a rather large yawn, probably accompanied by the usual, dismissive ‘stupid feminists, what do they think they’re going to achieve?’ to ‘Trump is president – get over it!’ suggesting it’s all about election disappointment – nothing more, nothing less. To the idea that this marks a beginning of consistent opposition to the counter productive backwards steps the new American administration is seen by many to be taking.

It would be difficult to argue against that point. We have a president that does not seem to be very presidential …a tack which clearly has it’s supporters. To recap:

  • He has spoken about grabbing women ‘by the pussy.’
  • He has spoken to a woman on prime time television about ‘blood coming out of her wherever…’
  • He has recalled with pride how he would burst into the changing rooms of the women taking part in his pageants whilst they were undressing, knowing that they would not dare demand he GTFO.
  • He is embroiled in a underage sex case.
  • He has grandly marked women’s physical appearance out of 10 with zero sense of irony or self awareness.
  • He has suggested that women who are not deemed attractive by him are lying when they say they were assaulted by him, not necessarily because he didn’t do it, but because of course only attractive women get sexually assaulted.
  • He tends to forget his wife whilst embracing his new role, barging ahead of her and leaving those with manners to guide her unnecessarily but with old fashioned gentlemanly grace into position. It’s all new for her too after all.

Those are just a few things we know about.

It’s plenty.

The numbers of women (people) who marched against Donald Trump rather embarrassingly dwarfed the people who turned up for his inauguration.

So?

What does it all mean for women and for the future?

Could we really brush aside Trumps comments as his most rabid fans have done as locker room banter?
Let’s face it. He is not lying. This kind of language, behaviour and sense of entitlement goes on in male environments and occasionally spills unchecked from the mouths of even the nicest of men, possibly in the same way sexist remarks spill from the mouths of women also when they are out with the girls. The thing is…they are not the President of the United States.

The Boss Man.

When the boss picks on someone, at work, at school, even at home, it is usually a signal by the weak-minded that it is okay to do the same. See the Stanford prison experiment. Lemmings develop a gang mentality that makes them behave in ways they would not behave on their own. It is this that makes Trumps behaviour alarming for the potential victims of his throwaway, irresponsible nonsense. The rise in attacks (on either side of the argument) bear this out whilst making the protest responses to it gratifying.

The protests show little sign of ending or focussing solely on his lack of respect for women…

So, School Me…

The March…What did it mean to YOU personally?…If anything.
