Reverse psychology or abuse?


- I'm so glad you finally have found yourself. You have been surrounded by strong people all your life that has prevented you from becoming who you are. I was the worst.

I think this little snippet says it all. Yes, you are weak, thank you for admitting that. Strong people does not oppress, abuse and hinder others from their pursuits. I have always been myself and I have always worked hard for what I want. I'm not more or less myself now than before. I had to leave all these weak people behind because they were dragging me down, wanting me to stay put in the safeness of their constructed haven of misery. Sometimes you make choices to care about other peoples needs more than your own, that is not weakness, that does not mean the other person is stronger than you. It means they needed your help and you were able to offer it, even though the intent was abusive. That's how strong I am, bitch.

#metoo



I am personally offended and feel sexually harrassed by this video. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

I support the #metoo campaign and do not think this has gone too far, as many fearful minds are expressing right now. We should never submit to fear, especially the fear of what others think.
The misogynist culture on the planet is hopefully seeing its last days of light. They say not to speak unless in a court of law, that women are not allowed to tell their stories. This is just another form of oppression to silence the victims. Everybody who has ever been assaulted, harrassed or raped and has reported this to the police knows that it's a dead end unless you are either extremely rich and already have a lawyer or extremely lucky.  This video, however burlesque and intriguing in many ways, symbolizes the misogynist culture in Hollywood as well as in the entire world. Women are portrayed as naked sexual objects and nothing else. You disgust me! Shame on you Brian and John! You are not welcome anymore.

Hey readers!

Time is not my friend right now, but a few words just to say hello won't hurt. :)

Currently eating icecream with sprinkles ( see Instagram for proof) and preparing to start analysing another bunch of mediated artifacts. Studying at two universities simultaneously with double work load as well, Mission impossible basically, with the risk of failing both, but not without a fight. Tired like never before. Should go to the gym, but I have broken my pinkie toe, which means less jumping and dancing around and more sitting on my ass getting fat. The icecream doesn't help at all. I have also gotten used to always having people around. From my time in South Africa living with a big family and from having two exchange students from there staying in my livingroom when I got back. Now they have left and I'm all alone here again. Which is weird, but then again my workload is so huge that there is no time for socializing in a while. Perhaps next year, or if I win the lottery and can afford to take a sabbatical year. I don't even play the lottery, so you can forget about that. ๐Ÿ˜

Keep the hope up and don't let all the bad news from all around the world bring you down. People be crazy and that will most likely remain for enough generations for humanity to self-extinct. Don't you think its time for the aliens to make an offical appearance and declare their presence on the planet? ( Watching Star Trek as reward in between the writing sessions).

Finally

The computer is back on track. Thank you. 

I have so much work to do that all distractions are unwelcome at this point. See you when I see you, in Milan perhaps, or Warsaw, Zanzibar ? Where should I go next? After I have finished this monstrous task that is and if I have any money left at that point. You never know. I could also get cancer and die, like real superquick. The fastest cancer ever. Well, back to the books, articles and media analysis. Happy Halloween. At my age you don't have to put on make-up to look scary, you just take it off. ๐Ÿ˜”

New video: Thabisa


Short film about a visit to an artgallery.

My hair looked terrible that day.
