PHOEBE PRINCE  was a 15-year-old who had emigrated with her family from Ireland to live in Massachusetts, where she attended South Hadley High School. After breaking up with her boyfriend, the boy and four other teens began a campaign of harassment against her that lasted for about three months. They threatened and insulted her, made slurs against her Irish ethnicity, and harassed her on Facebook. At times she was afraid of being attacked, and she often avoided class by going to the school nurse’s office or skipping school. Phoebe ended her life by hanging herself at home in January 2010. The day she committed suicide, one of her tormenters had written an extremely offensive word in place of Phoebe’s name on a library sign-in sheet, and some of the teens had followed her home and mocked her while she cried. The five teens involved pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges and were sentenced to community service.

When you were here before
Couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so fucking special
But I ‘m a creep
I ‘m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around

DREAM BLOG

I had a dream last night that I just brought this really big mansion and I was showing my friends and family inside the house, most of it was relatively still empty and I didn’t have much furniture in it. On the 2nd floor there was a lion walking around and it didn’t hurt anyone.   

            Meaning-  (MANSION) To see a mansion in your dream symbolizes your greatest potential and growth. To see a new house in your dream indicates that you are entering into a new phase or new area in your life. You are becoming more emotionally mature. If you dream of a mansion, it is a sign of growth. You’re either in the process of it, or just finished with a period of growth. Is there nothing in it? You may be feeling empty, lonely or drained. Mansion dreams seem to occur when you are trying to influence other people. Equally a mansion dream can occur when other people have been trying to influence or inspire you. A huge mansion dream linked to the dreamer trying to make everyone at work feel more cheerful. To dream of a mansion represents your perspective on a situation where you are all-powerful, more resourceful than others, or experiencing better success than others. You may feel better, luckier, or more capable than other people in some way. You may have a sense of something wonderful or special happening in your life. A mansion may also reflect what you want always happening all the time. Lots of possibilities that have yet to be explored.  (LION) To see a lion in your dream symbolizes great strength, courage, aggression and power. You will overcome some of your emotional difficulties. As king of the jungle, the lion also represents dignity, royalty, leadership, pride and domination. You have much influence over others. You also need to exercise some restraint in your own personal and social life. Alternatively, a lion represents your need for control over others. You have to be in charge. This spirit animal could point to one of your weak spots or a difficult situation you’re experiencing. The lion animal spirit guide is perhaps showing you the way to deal with the issue and keep going with the courage it also embodies. Do not trust anyone if tamed the lion – this is the suggestion from the conscious mind of yours to be careful with those around you. The gain of power and influence if see a lion – such dream shows that you will obtain the power to control anything you want. Look after yourself if the lion is lame – the dream suggests you to start taking care of yourself and pay attention mostly to your health. 

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

There’s a club if you’d like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

When you say it’s gonna happen “now”
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I’ve already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

How Soon is Now - THE SMITHS

1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.

MALALAI JOYA – RAISING MY VOICE

               Joya’s aim – she wants to sit up and take note of “all my oppressed people whose sights, tears and sorrows nobody sees. Joya is speaking of the people of Afghanistan – particularly the women. The sad fact is that, in Afghanistan killing a woman is like killing a bird.            Malalai Joya was four days old when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. From the age of four, her childhood was spent in refugee camps in Pakistan and Iran. During the late 1990s Jaya returned to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan and worked in under ground women’s groups.

               In the landmark elections of 2005, when the world wanted to believe the stories of hope so our (Australian) military involvement in Afghanistan could be justified, Joya was elected as the nation’s youngest ever MP at the age of 27. When she stood up at a constitution convention and accused her country’s leaders of war crimes, human rights violations, involvement in the opium trade and supporting the Taliban, she was banished from her seat and branded a whore and an infidel.

               Joya has received death threats and survived five assassination attempts. She now lives as a fugitive in her own country, moving houses every night with a heavy bodyguard, but she says she is not frightened, because we will all die one day.

KKK SMACKDOWN

CHRIST BEYOND THE PALE

               You might never have thought it would be enjoyable to listen to an avowed racist being interviewed – but this is an exception. Without shouting or talking over his interviewee, radio host Alan Colmes brought William Walters, Grand Dragon of the Pennsylvania Ku Klux Klan, to a stuttering standstill with a common sense argument.

              Colmes tried to find out why William Walters could claim to be a good Christian while discriminating against black and Jewish people. The knockout blow came early on in the interview when Colmes informed the Bible College-educated KKK leader that Jesus was not white. Walters, sounding bewildered, replied: “Ahhh, I don’t know that.”

               Colmes explained that as a Jewish resident of Palestine: “Jesus was Mediterranean Jesus was olive-skinned” From this point, the interview was firmly controlled by the Fox News Radio Host. When questioned, Walter claimed that races like dog breeds and species should stay pure and separate.

               Despite this, Walters claimed to have many black friends as an active member of the KKK. The racial purity advocate had been invited to appear on the show to discuss his ejection from a Philadelphia neighbourhood watch group after they found out he was the second in command of Pennsylvania’s Ku Klux Klan.

               Walters admitted that along with black, Asian and practising Jews, Christian Hispanic people would be prevented from joining the Ku Klux Klan. Colmes countered that as an olive-skinned Jew, Jesus himself would not be allowed to join the so-called “Christian” group.
