Judeo-Christian Culture Is Better Than Any Other


It seems that everywhere I go on the internet these days Milo Yiannopoulos and his ill informed opinions are shoved down my throat.

What things are wrong with Milo Yiannopoulos? 

Well where do I start - he hates himself. He says he is gay, but wishes he wasn't because that would mean he was a better person and within the same breath he says that gay men have higher IQs! Well he obviously doesn't for coming out with complete nonsense like that.

He says lesbians don't exist, he quotes absolutely ridiculous research to try to prove his point. I guess he thinks that no human being could possibly not find men attractive. A woman has no need to pretend she doesn't fancy men, just like a gay male has no need to pretend he doesn't fancy women, it is what it is and no research done on a handful of women will change what women do or don't find attractive.

He says that the only good cultures in the world are the result of Judeo-Christian religions. PLEASE!! Just more proof of his hatred of women and himself. Judeo-Christian religions hate women just as much, if not more, than Islam does, they also hate gays! How soon one forgets the horrors of the inquisition - all those women burnt to death for daring to have opinions, or trying to heal someone, for having red hair, for having a birth mark, for being too pretty, for not letting a man shag her, or basically doing anything that a man didn't like!

How quickly people forget what living under these backwards religions is like. Maybe Milo and others who support Judeo-Christian religions should be forced to wear a Scold's Bridle, or be tied up and ducked into water until dead or burnt at the stake and see how they like putting up with how it was for women under Judeo-Christian culture!

If it wasn't for the enlightenment period where people started to use their brains we would still be in those dark ages of Judeo-Christian religion. 

Britain First, the political party, keep pushing the UK as a Christian country too. What is Stonehedge and all other ancient monuments? Scotch Mist? Maybe he thinks they were built by the Roman invaders who brought their hate filled religion to the shores of the UK? Nope, sorry, they were built by people who didn't worship Gods, they venerated nature and the natural cycles of the Earth and the planets that influence us here; they venerated their ancestors, as they knew that is where they came from and who they are. They knew they were not created by some imaginary sky daddy god, they came from their Mother and all life on Earth is nourished by the Great Mother Earth.

Milo Yiannopoulos is just an insecure, self hating, whingy, narcissistic, Catholic (yep, unlike most Catholics he admits he is gay and hates women), attention seeking little boy. So no need to watch his videos or read his rubbish.

Hoping he will just fade into the background and learn to shut up, doubtful, but we can but hope.

Hoping all religions will just fade into the background and learn to shut up too, but that is also doubtful, too many insecure idiots like Milo support them.

Living with misophonia


Misophonia is no joke, it can be hell for those who suffer from it, and the worse thing about it is the people who you care about most, like family, friends and your partner, that are the ones who are doing the things that set the misophonia off. If you tell them that their slurping, chomping, sniffing, insistent throat clearing, tapping, scrapping and bashing of dishes while eating, other clicks and mouth noises drive you nuts, they either get angry at you or think it is funny to do it all the more. Or it is like they think it has gone away and that the next time they are near you and start heavy breathing into their glass and gulping down their drink, that it won't bother you this time. Well it does.

I am in no way pretending I don't have habits that are annoying to other people, but if I knew I was doing something that was making someone feel physically sick, then I wouldn't want to cause that in someone, so I would avoid doing it in front of them.

The Symptoms of Misophonia
The literal definition of misophonia is hatred of sound but a person with misophonia does not simply hate all sound. People with misophonia have specific symptoms and are sensitive to only certain sounds. Any sound can become a problem to a person with misophonia but most are some kind of background noise. 
Exposure to one of these sounds elicits an immediate negative emotional response from a person with sound sensitivities. The response can range from moderate discomfort to acute annoyance or go all the way up to full-fledged rage and panic. Fight or flight reactions can occur. While experiencing this a person may become agitated, defensive or offensive, distance themselves from the trigger or possibly act out in some manner.
The people closest to the person with misophonia often elicit the sounds that affect them. This can make personal relationships difficult and stressful. An environment known to include these sounds can limit social activities when a person with misophonia anticipates a problem. In some cases, a person with misophonia can become socially isolated and pull back from family and friends in an attempt to reduce the associated physical symptoms that they experience (tension, headache, tightening jaw, stomach issues, etc.).

I know myself from my childhood if anyone picks up a banana I am out of there, the eating of bananas make some of the worse chomping sounds. People who lick their fingers and make slurping noises as they do drive me mad. I tense up, hutch my shoulders and try my best to ignore it and hope that goes away, if it doesn't go away quickly I am likely to get a headache and neck pain, which often leads to a migraine. It also causes my already delicate stomach to do somersaults and can start up IBS.

When exposed to one of these sounds, some people feel the need to mimic what they hear. Mimicry is an automatic, non-conscious social phenomenon. It can have a calming effect and make the situation feel better to the person experiencing stress. There is a biological basis for how mimicry lessens adverse reactions to triggers because it evokes compassion and empathy.

Actually I think people will get angry at me if I do this, and at times I can't help doing exaggerated sounds like they are making. To me it is showing them how bad it sounds, but they don't understand why it bugs me so much.

People with misophonia can be reluctant to share their symptoms with others because sharing can have several different outcomes. Reports from sufferers indicate that sometimes people purposefully mock them with offending noises (at times exaggerating them as well). Also, sometimes family, friends, co-workers and others minimise the problem. A person with misophonia is sometimes told to “just try to ignore that sound,” or “you’re just being difficult,” or “don’t let it get to you.” Suggestions like these are not helpful. And people with misophonia often say that if they could simply choose to ignore the sounds, they would have made that choice a long time ago.
On the other hand, there are those who are supportive and offer encouragement. Anyone with a problem or difficulty appreciates a helping hand now and then. If you know someone with misophonia and want to help them cope with the disorder, all you need to do is ask what you can do to help.

As I talked about in the Elven Ears article I wrote, I already have very sensitive hearing, which is why I like there to be no sound at all most of the time and it is great when I can control that. But sometimes I can't.

If you know someone who suffers from misphonia, please don't assume they are just being awkward or offensive to you.

Psychopaths Don't Need An Excuse To Try To Ruin You


Don't be fooled into thinking that if someone has become a victim of a psychopath that they some how deserved it - no smoke without fire - is what people who have never encountered a psychopath will say! The only thing you need to do to become the victim of a psychopath is to encounter one. If you insult them in some way, YOU WILL become a victim of them. It can be something as simple as rejecting their sexual advances, ignoring an email from them, wearing the wrong colour top (yes psychopaths often identify with a certain political party, sports team, gang, or even religion). It doesn't matter if you do or don't do anything, if they want to ruin you they will, with or without a reason. Or should I say try to ruin you?

Recently I was talking to a man online, he was looking at my blog and then because he knew my name he decided to snoop on me and found those rip off reports that that psychopathic criminal and gang member Dean Branch made about me. I just showed him the links to rip off reports about him, as he is a known criminal and tried to blackmail me, saying he would ruin me if he didn't get his way.

So he put the reports up about me, saying a load of bullshit and what does this man online say to me: "He seems crazy enough, but there's no smoke without fire..." Actually there is, as I say above a psychopath doesn't need an excuse to try to ruin you, but Dean had one, I was ignoring him and hoping he would go away. He posted all over FB and everywhere, trying to get me to talk to him, when I didn't he said he was going to ruin me. Sounds familiar? Anyone who knows all the crap I went through when I became a female Bishop will know another psychopath also threatened to ruin me, because he didn't like me being a Bishop. You see, this is what psychopaths do, they try to ruin people when they don't get their own way.

I have known 5 psychopaths in my life, these are just two of them.

Psychopaths don't need an excuse to do the things they do, they do them because they can.

As for the man online who assumed the worse of me, lucky escape for me. If someone is so stupid that they believe lies up on the internet about someone who is in the public eye, they will believe anything. Everyone gets lies told about them when they are in the public eye and they all get bad publicity. Some people believe it and others aren't so easily fooled.
