I don’t understand…

You know, lately I find myself repeating, “I don’t understand…” to myself countless times during the day and seemingly more than I remember doing so before!

What I am finding lately, is that the general reaction to that statement, should I ever dare to utter it out loud that is, is one of fear and defence in the person that I am saying it to, or if is an idea or concept they are trying to explain that I don’t understand.  I really think that, we, as a society have changed the meaning of ‘I don’t understand’ from identifying that there is a knowledge gap to ‘That is stupid and makes no sense‘.  It’s really scary

I believe it is because in a world where the opinion is supreme, the ‘clap-back’ is King and we should all be able to shut down, express or even antagonise in 140 characters or less. Continue reading “I don’t understand…”

Return To Sender…

So in the last two weeks I have been given feedback that has been so off the wall that it has really disoriented me and as it has turned out, because I am such a reflective person (read sometimes too damn reflective), on both occasions it happened to be that the people giving me this feedback were actually using words to describe that were indicative of their own situation.  Almost as though they were creating an environment or set of circumstances that would make their behaviour acceptable.

What do Draq Queens teach us about society?

I'm a RuPauls Drag Race Season 1 die hard and I'm not even a tiny bit sorry about it!
Right from that crazy filtered season I was hooked (seriously, it was worse Sunset Beach a la Channel 5 in the 90's) and I know exactly what it is that appeals to me so much – it's the irreverence.  You know, if there's anything that I can guarantee, I've always been the first one to go against the tide.  If someone says, "you can't do that", well I'm definitely going to do it, nobody puts baby in the corner, or a box.

I don't like rules.  That being said, if I'm in a place without rules I freak out and I guess that really gets me thinking… I'm really not happy unless I've got something to moan about; sometimes big things and more often the most banal crap that really shouldn't bother anyone in the least…  If I've got no time to spare I moan that I've got no control but then I go all out and I get control and then I moan that there's no spontaneity in my life – ain't that some shit.

Is this where we are in society right now? Have we become a faceless, noisy, pointless nation of entitled moaners?

It could also be why my mind rebels against fads, trends and the masses, it probably also explains my distaste at the pride flag campaign I wrote about in my identification with the gay community blog.
