Are People Celebrating Death Without Knowing It?

I always thought that it was weird how when people are alive, so many others treat them like garbage and say all kinds of mean things to them. But when they die, many of those same people are at the funeral crying and talking about how much the dead people are going to be missed and saying all kinds of positive things.

There’s a scene in the movie, Wonder Woman 1984, where a man and a woman were arguing and the man said, “Why don’t you just drop dead?” And since people’s wishes were coming true, she actually did and he cried over her. Luckily, she was able to come back to life because Wonder Woman convinced everyone in the world to take back their wishes in order to stop the chaos going on. But still, you can see the immediate change in the man’s feelings towards the woman when she was alive versus when she died.

This phenomenon happens to celebrities, especially. When Whitney Houston was alive, so many people had so many negative things to say about her. So many people talked about her being on drugs and called her all sorts of names. Dragged her for her relationship with Bobby Brown. But when she died, her music sales shot up exponentially and so many people said they were going to miss her, talked about how great of a singer she was, and how good of a person she was.

Michael Jackson was constantly picked apart by people for everything you can think of. His plastic surgeries, the change in his skin complexion, him being accused of being a pedophile, and other scandals. But when he died, all that talk disappeared and turned into sorrow. People were even running in the streets crying when he died.

Many rappers who die end up getting called “legends” after they die, especially if they die young. And most of the time, most people have never heard of these rappers or ever listened to their music before. But because they died, all of a sudden, they’re legends?

There’s nothing wrong with showing your condolences to people when they die, especially if they die young or tragically. Death is a very sad thing for everyone. You don’t have to know someone to send your condolences, either. I say that because a lot of people try to use that as an excuse for when people are sending their condolences to a music artists they never heard of. I’ve heard people say, “I’ve never heard of this person, so I don’t care that they died”, or “Y’all don’t know this person. How are y’all so sad?” It’s okay to send condolences to music artists (or anyone) who die that you don’t know. But don’t be the type of person who always complains about them or their profession when they’re alive, but when they die, all of a sudden, you turn into a fan.

Don’t be the type of person that’s always dogging or ignoring someone when they’re alive, but the moment they die, all of a sudden, you want to care about them and be sad. Show people that kind of love when they’re alive. When they can see and hear it with their own eyes.

This phenomena in people made me wonder if this means that people are celebrating death without realizing it. It seems to me that this society hates people when they’re alive, but when they die, there’s all this sudden pouring of love and sorrow. Where did that all come from and where was it when the person was alive? I’m pretty sure these people would’ve loved to see and hear all this love and care when they were alive and probably really needed that type of positive energy.

All that made me think that there might be someone or something out there that would rather see people dead than alive and when they are dead, they’re celebrating the person’s death. I know that sounds dark and disturbing, but it’s definitely something I’ve been wondering about for years. I will never understand why people do that to one another.

Nobody Cares About What Their Kids Watch On TV Or Listen To On The Radio

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve seen adults watch movies where people get brutally murdered in the most gory way you can think of in front of their kids. They would watch movies and TV shows where the actors say every curse word there is in front of their kids. I even know people who watch sex scenes in front of their children.

It’s the same with music. People will listen to songs about drugs and alcohol around their kids. They will listen to songs about sex. They will listen to songs calling women bitches and hoes, and each other niggas. They will listen to songs loaded with cursing. They never think anything of it.

It’s also the same thing with video games. They will let their kids play games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto, where characters are cursing and killing each other, stealing, and making drug/alcohol and/or sexual references. But people think nothing of it. They think showing their kids that stuff is just fine.

Even if someone tells them that they shouldn’t let their kids listen to and watch everything, some of them will say, “You can’t protect your kids from everything forever! Eventually they will see it!” Or they’ll say, “They’re kids. They don’t know what they’re talking about in this song or movie!”

1) People who say this don’t realize how smart kids are. Kids know and notice more than people like to admit. 2) Even if the kids didn’t know the negative and inappropriate things going on in a movie or song, you as an adult know! And you know what they’re portraying and talking about is inappropriate! The fact that you know that and still put it in front your kids anyway is just proof that you don’t care what your kids see and hear.

But as soon as a woman makes a song about sex or shows some skin, all of a sudden, people care about what their kids see. For example, people have been complaining about how Cardi B’s music is “negatively influencing” kids since people first started knowing about her. They’ve been doing even more complaining since she released her song, “WAP”, featuring Meg Thee Stallion.

When people heard about how Cardi B doesn’t let her own daughter listen to her music, people complained and said, “See how she doesn’t let her daughter listen to her music, but she will make your kids listen to hers?!”

People really say that like it sounds good, but that’s really what every parent or guardian is supposed to do. If Cardi B can keep her child from listening to her own music, what’s stopping people from keeping their kids from listening to her music if they thought it was that bad? Just listening to one song of hers will tell you that her music isn’t for kids and isn’t even marketed to kids. So, why not just keep your kids from listening to music like hers? People really expose their own bad parenting with a full chest and don’t even realize it.

People only think music like hers is marketed to kids because that’s how much they allow their kids to look up to, listen to, and watch these music artists without setting any boundaries whatsoever. Just because you allow your kids to watch these inappropriate music artists doesn’t mean their music is for your kids.

Whenever Kim Kardashian takes a picture of her naked body and posts it to her social media account, so many people cry about their kids. “What if my kids saw that?!” “That’s not a good influence on kids!” It’s always kids, kids, kids!

Kids aren’t even supposed to be on social media, for one. Most, if not all, social media sites require everyone on it to be at least 13 years old. And even at that age, parents still have to watch what their kids are doing and looking at on these sites.

People rarely, if ever, say anything about all the male artists that make songs about sex and how they influence children with it. But everybody has something to say as soon as a female artist does it. They don’t care when men are doing it. They just don’t like it when women do it.

Or, let people see one gay couple on TV or a transgender person and, all of a sudden, people say, “Kids shouldn’t be seeing that! Stop pushing sexuality on children!” But a lot of parents out there are so afraid of their children being gay that they will push them to think about the opposite sex at really young ages, especially if they’re boys. These people have been pushing sexuality on their own children more than any gay couple in real life or on TV ever have.

The way I see it, a lot of people don’t care about what their kids see online or on TV or what they hear on the radio. Only when something offends these people do they all of a sudden care about what their kids are seeing and hearing. Seeing LGBTQ people or women talking about sex offends them. But instead of just saying that, they act like they’re worried about their kids.

Judging from what a lot of people let their kids watch and listen to and what they say themselves in front of their kids, I can easily say a woman’s naked body or an LGBTQ couple on a TV show or movie isn’t the worst thing their kids have seen. But they definitely act like it.

People’s carelessness and hypocrisy is a shame. Everyone has to care about what their kids are looking at and listening to. We wonder why kids are acting worst at younger and younger ages. There’s tons of reasons why that is, but letting them watch and listen to any and everything is only one, huge part of it.

Letting kids watch and listen to everything sounds like lazy and careless parenting. People are letting TV and radio raise their kids, then get mad when something happens on it that they don’t like. People only care about what they don’t like and what offends them. Them bringing up kids is a lie.

The TV and movie industry puts ratings on TV shows and movies (i.e., Rated R, PG, PG-13, G, Y, etc.) and radio bleeps out words on songs for a reason. They know certain things aren’t suitable for children. If that didn’t matter, they wouldn’t put those on anything. But a lot of people don’t even pay attention to those ratings or even know what they mean. If these industries know that certain things aren’t suitable for younger audiences, how come so many people out here with kids don’t?

Some People Deserve To Be Judged; I’m Sorry

People are always throwing around the Bible verse, “Judge not, lest ye be judged”, saying, “Only God can judge me”, “Don’t judge other people”, “We don’t know their story”, etc.

Dr. King said he wanted people to not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I wholeheartedly believe that.

But all I’ve seen throughout my life is people doing the exact opposite of that. Not only do people judge others by the color of their skin, they judge others based on how much money they have, what kind of car they drive, how they wear their hair or their hair’s texture, what clothes they wear, where they live, rumors, how they look, their weight, their height, their body shape, their names—everything that isn’t someone’s character.

The crazy part is, the very same people who cry so much about how we “shouldn’t judge” are the main ones judging other people by these things. They will judge others harshly based on anything, even things that aren’t true, but judging someone based on something bad they did or making a bad decision they KNEW was wrong before they made it is where they want to draw the line at. I don’t get it.

The only reason a lot of people don’t like judging is because they don’t like when someone calls them out on their nonsense. If I see someone doing something that’s outright wrong, I’m going to judge them harshly. I don’t care what anybody says. I don’t feel sympathy for people who do bad things or have a bad character and the consequences of their bad character or the bad things they’ve done start biting them in the behind.

People’s hypocrisy is astounding and sad. From what I see, people don’t hate judging. In fact, they LOVE it. They just don’t want anyone to say anything about them.

I judge anyone who judges people by any of the things I named towards the beginning of this post, but turn a blind eye to people who do wrong by saying “Who am I to judge?”

If someone is mistreating their kids and always hitting them, I’m going to judge them.

If someone ends up having a child, knowing they didn’t want or weren’t ready to have a child, I’m going to judge them.

If someone chooses to be with someone who they knew was bad news before they got with them and later on down the line that person starts treating them badly, I’m not going to feel sorry for them.

If someone gets locked up for doing a crime they’re definitely guilty of, I’m not going to walk around saying “free” that person. I’m going to judge them.

If I see a person being mean and rude to everyone around them all the time, I’m going to judge them.

I’m going to judge anyone who is colorist, racist, abusive, sexist, homophobic, a rapist, and all of the above.

I don’t really care if people get plastic surgeries or not. But if the surgery gets botched or it goes wrong to where it’s causing them health problems, I’m not going to feel sorry for them because everyone has been told and warned about how they go wrong a lot of times and they got it regardless of the risk.

I don’t really care if women wear weaves and wigs or straighten their hair, but when they tell their stories about how they lost all their edges and hair because they wore them or straightened their hair too much and neglected their real hair for too long, I’m not going to feel sorry for them because everyone has been told and warned about what happens if we wear weaves and wigs and straighten our hair too much, especially if we neglect our real hair while doing it, but they did it anyway despite that.

I don’t really care about people who choose to sell drugs or prostitute for a living. But if they get killed, locked up, or caught up in some crazy mess because of it, I’m not going to feel sorry for them because everyone has been told about the consequences that comes with going that route, but they chose to do it anyway.

I’m not going to fall for people’s old sayings, using God, and guilt tripping that they use to keep people from calling them out. People want to do bad things and have horrible attitudes, but don’t want to check themselves. And they don’t want other people to check them either. Check yourself and maybe you won’t have to worry about anyone judging you.

Are People Backwards About Protesting?

I’m seeing all these people protesting over being told to wear masks. Protesting over being told to stay home to help slow the spread of Coronavirus. Fighting and arguing in stores because of mask rules. I hear some of these people say that they refuse to wear a mask because they refuse to “let the government tell them what to do” or they “don’t want to be a sheep”. I just can’t get over how stupid all of this looks to me.

The government tells you to send your kids to school everyday. You complain about how schools teach you nothing that you can use in your everyday life. You complain about how teachers and other school staff treated you when you were in school. But you don’t protest about that. You continue to take your kids there everyday.

The government tells you that you have to work 8+ hour shifts on jobs that you hate to make enough money to take care of yourself and/or your family. You complain about how shitty the bosses and supervisors are. You complain about how hard or stressful the work is. You complain about how the jobs pay you peanuts. But you still go to them everyday. And you don’t protest.

The government tells you that you have to pay for life insurance, car insurance, and health insurance. You complain about how all these things are scams. You complain about how much all these things cost. But you still pay for them anyway. And you don’t protest.

The government allows garbage to be promoted to you and your children through radio and television. You complain about how everything on TV and radio is about sex, drugs, and violence. You complain about how the women in these industries can only succeed if they’re hypersexualized. But you continue to watch and listen to it everyday. And you allow your kids to watch and listen to it too. And you don’t protest.

The government tells you that you have to vote for politicians to govern over you every four years. You complain about how these politicians are horrible and do nothing for you. You complain about how the government is constantly giving you the choice between bad or worst in every election. But you continue to vote anyway. And you don’t protest.

The government tells you that you have to pay taxes every year. You complain about how high the taxes are. You complain about how the government wastes your taxes on things that don’t benefit you, like bombing innocent people in other countries. But you continue to pay taxes every year. And you don’t protest.

You talk about how the government telling you to wear a mask and stay home during a pandemic is the government “trying to control you”, but NEWS FLASH! The government has been controlling you YOUR WHOLE LIFE! You’ve been a sheep YOUR WHOLE LIFE! And you’ve done absolutely NOTHING about it. But you WILL get up and protest and throw a fit and fight over a damn mask. I don’t get it!

All these things all of us complain about the government doing to us. Why don’t we ever protest the government? Why do some people protest over the most trivial things? Is it fear?

I believe that these people actually do want to protest against the government, but they’re too afraid to protest over big issues. They’re too afraid to acknowledge and address huge issues. So they pick trivial issues to protest about. It’s sad and it sucks. This backwards protesting needs to go!

What Is A Mistake?

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary website, a mistake is 1) a wrong judgement or misunderstanding; 2) a wrong action or statement proceeding faulty judgement, inadequate knowledge, or inattention. In my own words, a mistake is a wrong thing someone does or says, but wasn’t intending to. For example, you writing too quickly and you accidentally misspell something because of it and you have to erase. Or grabbing something out the fridge and it slips out of your hands and breaks. You didn’t throw it on the floor on purpose. It just slipped out of your hand.

Many people call things “mistakes” that aren’t mistakes. They’re CHOICES. But because they regret it later, they want to soften what they did, so instead of admitting they made a poor choice, they’ll say they “made a mistake”.

“I made a mistake and cheated on my spouse.”

“I made a mistake and said something I shouldn’t have said out of anger.”

“I made a mistake and wore blackface and called someone a racial slur.”

“I made a mistake and raped someone.”

“I made a mistake and abused someone.”

“I made a mistake and bullied someone.”

So many people say things like this and claim they are mistakes. These aren’t mistakes because all people know right from wrong. We were taught since we were babies right from wrong. It’s up to us to CHOOSE right or wrong. A lot of people CHOOSE to do WRONG things, then don’t want to own up to their choice.

You knew you were in a relationship/married when you slept with someone that wasn’t your partner. It’s not like you didn’t know you were already with someone. You knew doing that was wrong, which is why you did it behind your partner’s back and lied about it. You knew sleeping with someone that wasn’t your partner would hurt them…but you did it anyway. Now that you got caught and you see the hurt on your partner’s face, you want to say it was “a mistake”. No. You made A CHOICE!

Everyone knows wearing blackface is racist. Everyone knows what racial slurs are. You went online and did it anyway. And now that you’re getting dragged for it (like you should), you want to claim you “made a mistake”. No. You made A CHOICE!

When you picked on that kid in school for whatever reason, you knew exactly what you were doing. You knew the kid would be and was hurt by it. But you did it anyway. And kept doing it. You didn’t “make a mistake” and become a bully. You made A CHOICE!

When you had sex without a condom or birth control, you knew beforehand that unprotected sex leads to pregnancy. You don’t sleep around unprotected, then say “I made a mistake and now I’m pregnant” or “I made a mistake and got somebody pregnant”. You made A CHOICE!

Instead of saying, “We’re all human and we all make mistakes”, I want us to start saying, “We’re all human and we all make CHOICES”. We have to start being more honest with ourselves and admitting that we CHOOSE to do bad things sometimes.

A lot of people like using “free will” as excuse to absolve themselves from accountability for bad choices as well. Yes we have free will to choose what we want to do, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t consequences to what we do or that what we do won’t hurt someone else.

I believe that if more of us admitted to making bad choices instead of calling our bad choices “mistakes”, we will think twice about doing certain things. If we keep calling our bad choices “mistakes”, a lot of us won’t try to do better because in our heads, we’re not doing anything wrong. We’re just “making mistakes”.

Should Paddling Be Allowed In Schools?

(Photo: Flickr)

I remember when I was very little that some of the teachers used to paddle kids who misbehaved in school. Nowadays, paddling has been outlawed in schools in most states. Currently, it’s legal in only 19 states in the U.S. As a child, I didn’t think much of paddling. I thought it was normal and that’s just what adults did to discipline misbehaved children. But now that I’m an adult, I’m angry that paddling was ever allowed in schools at all.

One major reason is because I don’t think adults should be putting their hands on children, especially children that’s not their own! The idea of adults hitting children never sat well with me. It makes me think of child abuse, even if it is just a couple of little taps.

And thinking back on how a lot of my teachers were when I was little, I think many of them got a rise out of hitting children and looked for any reason to do it. I remember some kids getting paddled for talking in class or coming back from the bathroom a few minutes late. Although I do think those types of actions need some type of disciplinary action to prevent it from continuously happening, I don’t think paddling a child for that is necessary. I think some school staff were just power hungry and needed to feel a sense of power.

The other reason is, I believe disciplining children should be the parents’ job and the parents’ job only. No one else should have to discipline your children for you. No one else should have to tell your children to be quiet, sit down, pay attention, come to class on time, listen to the teacher, and do their work. Your child should already know how to behave at school. Your child should already know to listen and do their work.

A friend of mine has very disobedient children and they always bring them around me. I always have to tell them to stop doing this and stop doing that. And since the children aren’t mine, I feel very uncomfortable doing that. I can only imagine how a teacher would feel dealing with these types of kids. If your child needs to be disciplined outside your home, either your disciplinary actions don’t work and you need to change it (or you have none and need to get some immediately) or your child may have a disorder and you need to check it out.

I also read an article that said black and disabled children are paddled in school more than any other children. So, I believe paddling may have some subtle racist undertones and/or adults having lack of patience with children. You need a TON of patience to deal with disabled (mentally & physically) children.

I believe that is a huge problem with many adults today. They have no patience with children. Children are still learning and growing. They require patience to help them grow to the best they can be. If you’re not patient when it comes to children, you shouldn’t work in a school or be a parent.

On the flip side, even though I don’t agree with paddling children, I understand why it was allowed. A lot of children are REALLY bad and disobedient. And a lot of parents send them to school for poor teachers and other kids to deal with, KNOWING those kids are bad! I’ve heard stories about teachers telling parents about their bad kids and the parents would either do nothing or get mad at the teachers like they’re lying. That is sad!

RAISE AND DISCIPLINE YOUR OWN CHILDREN! Stop putting your bad ass kids on other people! Deal with them yourself!

Are We A Delusional Society?

(Photo: Flickr)

I think about posts that I have previously written on this blog about people denying obvious things like colorism, laughing at things we really shouldn’t be, holding up lies about our hair, our views on white people, arguing about whether mixed and other nonblack people are black, and missing things that have never actually gone away. It really makes me wonder are we living in a delusional society? Do we do these things because we’re delusional?

Every time someone talks about sexism and misogyny, people get mad and deny it.

Every time someone talks about racism, people get mad and deny it.

Every time someone talks about colorism, people get mad and deny it.

Every time someone talks about how corrupted the government is, people get mad and deny it.

Every time someone talks about how the things we see on television and hear on the radio influence our thoughts and behaviors, people get mad and deny it.

I can go on and on about how much crazy things go on in this society and how much people cry about and deny it when someone sheds a light on it.

I believe we do all this denying because this society is delusional. I think we love telling ourselves that America is such this great, noble, perfect country–a utopia–that’s greater and better than all other countries so much that when something comes up that completely proves that this isn’t true, many of us get upset.

But people, America is the furthest thing from the greatest, perfect country. There’s so many things we need to work on and get rid of before we can even begin thinking that our country and society is great and perfect.

We love holding up this idea that America is all sunshine and rainbows where everyone lives happily and equally and it’s just FALSE!

ICE is separating people from their families. Black people are still getting discriminated against and facing racism in many places, especially in Hollywood. They are just now passing laws in some states to protect black women against being discriminated against in workplaces for wearing their natural hair.

There’s a news story recently about three white students cutting a black student’s dreadlocks because they said it was “ugly”. We hear about all these mass shootings at schools and other public places. Women are getting raped and sexually harassed all over this country and many of these cases don’t get solved and many people like blaming the woman for being raped and sexually harassed. Unarmed black men are getting killed by police. Many LGBTQ people are being bullied, harassed, discriminated against, and killed for their sexualites.

We need to wake up and stop being so delusional about this. If we don’t, all these things are going to keep going on while we continue to lie to ourselves about it. History, as well as the present, has shown us what this country and society is all about, yet for some strange reason, we continue to think otherwise. It’s up to us to accept it and change it accordingly.

I often wonder if this mass delusion comes from a centuries long battle with abuse and oppression. I believe many people are afraid to stand up to the adversity in this country, so we convince ourselves that everything is fine or everything “isn’t that bad” so we won’t feel like we have to do anything about it. I also believe that this stuff has gone on for so long that we have convinced ourselves that everything that’s going on today is okay and normal. It’s the FURTHEST from it!

Telling People To “Not Respond” To Negativity Just Might Be The Oldest Trick In The Book

(Photo: Flickr)

I’ve always heard people say “Just ignore it; just ignore it”, or “Don’t let it bother you”, to other people who are dealing with someone who bothers them or does something negative to them. I used to agree and go along with that advice. But now, I believe it’s just a trick to make people passive.

I think people just want to be able to do bad things to others and not deal with any repercussions or guilt from doing it. I’m not a violent person by any means, but some people deserve to have all the teeth knocked out of their mouths for the things they say and do to other people!

People steal from others. They bully others. They say and do rude things. They spread rumors about others that aren’t even true. And, sometimes, there are people who say and spread around untrue things about people they don’t even know. I think it’s wrong to tell someone to “just ignore” things like this if they’re dealing with it. In a lot of cases, “ignoring it” just makes people do it more because they think you’re giving them the impression that they can get away with it or they just want a response out of you.

Some people are just miserable with their lives and want to screw with other people to make themselves feel better and make other people as miserable as they are. I also believe that some people only tell other people to “not respond” to negativity because the negativity isn’t happening to them and they don’t know exactly how the other person feels about it.

I think it’s weird that people do bad things to others, but if the other people retaliate, they’re looked at as the bad guys for “letting negativity get to them”. People have even made it to where if a person defends themselves against a false, negative rumor about them, it means that they’re “guilty” of it or it somehow makes the rumor true. What?!? How does things get this twisted?!

I don’t think people should just ignore and hold all that negativity in. I get the feeling that it’s really bad for anyone’s health. I think that causes mental instabilities, insecurities, as well as murders (There’s only so much people can take before they actually snap). I think people should do something about the negativity right there and then. People are wrong as all get out sometimes and need to be told so. It doesn’t always have to resort to violence, though. If it does, then they more than likely deserved it anyway.

I think people should at least be able to tell those people about how that stuff makes them feel, though, if violence isn’t an option. If someone is doing or saying something bad to someone else, the other person should always be able to defend themselves, no matter if it’s verbally or physically. Not roll over and just let them do it and get away with it.

Why Are Women Pressured To Wait For Sex, But Men Aren’t?

I remember a conversation my class had back when I was going to high school. A boy said it’s okay for a girl to wait for sex, but if a boy hasn’t had sex by 16 he’s gay. It was such a ridiculous statement because what if every girl actually did wait to have sex? Who would boys have sex with? Other boys? Animals? Sometimes, people don’t realize how ridiculous they sound when they say certain things, especially when they’re so quick to label someome as gay for it.

I remember a post I saw on Facebook of a woman completely fully clothed. No arms showing. No legs showing. I believe even her hair was covered, too. She was dressed in what looked like a long denim dress. The picture was captioned, “You can still be sexy fully clothed”. I like the message of the photo because sometimes, women don’t feel attractive unless they’re dressed very skimpy. But at the same time, it looked weird seeing her with all those clothes on. To me, she looked like she had a disease and they were trying to cover her so it wouldn’t spread! (I know that probably sounds like an exaggeration, but that’s exactly what I felt like what she looked like dressed like that.) It made me think that something was very wrong about how men view women in this society.

I also think about the many television shows and movies I have seen where a girl’s parents or some other male authority figure in the show is breathing down her back about not having sex and trying their best to keep as many boys away from her as possible. But on the same shows and movies, those people are not as hard on the boys about having sex and actually encourage them to get girlfriends at really young ages.

Why is this? Why does this society put so much pressure on women about sex, telling them what age is appropriate for them to have sex, what clothes are appropriate for them to wear, etc., but boys are encouraged to be involved with girls and have sex at really young ages? What does this society have against women and sex? Where does this stigma come from?

Many sources say that girls and women should wait for sex because it can bring about unwanted pregnancies or they can get pregnant by a man who will step out on her and their child. There’s also sources that tell girls and women to wait for sex because of sexually transmitted diseases.

I completely agree with waiting on having sex to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases and to prevent unwanted pregnancies or avoid getting pregnant by a boy or man who will step away from his job as a father. However, I feel like boys and men aren’t told to wait for sex to avoid getting girls and women pregnant at the wrong time or to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases like girls and women are. Although there’s a little truth in telling women to wait to prevent pregnancies and STDs, I also feel like they’re nothing more than shaming and scare tactics that this society uses to try to control female sexuality.

I feel that men fear and are intimidated by female sexuality. I feel that is the reason why they try so hard to suppress it. I believe they are afraid and intimidated because they feel that women can have a lot of power over them through sex and their sexuality. They try to hide this by pushing the idea that they are superior to women and tell the world it’s okay for them to be with as many women as they want and get praised for it, but if a woman is with more than one man, she’s a “hoe”, “slut”, “bitch”, you name it!

I believe men are happy when they are with multiple women because it makes them feel they have all the sexual power and control, but when a woman has multiple men, it threatens their sexual power and control.

I feel that men tell women to wait for sex and dress so covered up that she shows no skin at all because they are happier and less intimidated with the idea that she’s not having sex (unless it’s with them) and is fully clothed.

There’s an article I found on Huffpost that I will link in this post that mentioned a few theories about why men are so afraid of female sexuality. It said this fear could be hardwired into men because just like in the animal kingdom, men want to perpetuate his own genes. If women are too sexual, they probably won’t be able to do that because she would’ve more than likely been with other men.

Another thing it brought up is that men are afraid of women being unfaithful to them because of the shame that comes with it from society, so they do everything they can to prevent it.

But I believe those theories the least. I believe most all that it has to do with the male ego & men trying to control female sexuality. This could be a lot deeper than what anyone thinks.

Is Money Really The Root Of All Evil?

I’ve heard the old saying that money is the root of all evil all my life. In a way, I kind of think it is and isn’t. For starters, I think it isn’t because it is what people do for money that makes it evil. The love of money and greed is what’s evil.

People are willing to lie, cheat, steal, kill innocent people or even children for money. People sell out their own family members and friends for money. People are willing to compromise their self respect and do unethical things or things they wouldn’t normally do for money. People even look down on other people who don’t have as much money.

Lots of people let money change and control them. It makes them arrogant and maybe even stupid in a lot of ways.

On the flipside, it is because having little to no money causes a lot of stress and pain to a lot of people because they can’t afford to pay for the basic things they need to live; clothes, food, houses, bills, maybe a car to get to wherever they want to go, take care of their children or other people they have to take care of, etc.

Not having money causes people to become very depressed, stressed, and even suicidal. And it can cause them to do bad things out of desperation.

In a lot of ways, I believe money was invented for control and power. I know there’s someone or maybe even numerous people who want to control mass amounts of people and control what they do and how they live and money is a great way to do that.

I believe that there is no use for money in the world because everything was created just for us for free and we fight and kill ourselves and each other for things that we should all be free to have. No one should have the right to put a price on something they don’t own and didn’t create themselves.

But then again, I’ve read from different sources about why money was created. One thing I read said it was to compensate for the shortcomings of the barter system. Before there was money, people traded for what they wanted and sometimes, people didn’t always agree with what someone wanted to trade them. And if someone didn’t agree with what someone else wanted to trade them, they wouldn’t be able to get what they needed or wanted.

But what about the shortcomings of the monetary system where people can’t afford to buy certain things?

Another said that money was created to ration out things better. If everything was free, people would consume things very quickly due to greed and self-centeredness and there would be a scarcity in many things.

And another said money was created to motivate people to do work. If there was no money, people wouldn’t put in the effort or put in very little to do certain things. People wouldn’t want to build or anything. With money, people have a reason to get things done, thus creating a productive society.

Although I do believe these other reasons make a lot of sense, I still believe that money was created for control and power most of all. People have wanted to have power and control over other people for ages.

I don’t think money is really supposed to exist, which is why it causes so much evil and problems. Money has no real value. It isn’t really backed by anything. It only has value because the government says so.
