I don’t think that India has a monopoly on rape. Rape is sadly prevalent in every society on every level amongst the rich and the poor the educated and the uneducated. More often than not rape, sex abuse and sexual violence ‘s swept under the carpet and in some cultures ironically it’s the victim who gets punished while the rapist goes free! It would seem to me that the majority of men worldwide are much less evolved i.e. unable to control their sex drive making them not much better than animals if not worse. Plus the problems of cultures and religions and outdated beliefs that reduce the status and the value of women in general where these sad specimens of men that women are put on earth to tend to their needs and pleasures. i.e. their slaves.  And the fact that punishment for rapists is inappropriate and much too mild but then how can it be different when it is men who lay down the laws!

Here’s an article about Rape and Sexual Assault by John Schmidt starts with ‘In the United States, someone is raped or sexually assaulted every two minutes……’

How do you feel about this?

 

Harcèlement de rue

Femmes de la rue, par Sofie Peters-
Young woman with hidden camera on the streets of Brussels.

This short video is really disturbing, for me anyway! I am at a loss for words. It’s about a young woman who moved to Brussels and her experience of day to day subjected to harassment and insults by men when she is walking innocently attending to her own business. As women usually do, she blames herself at first, ‘perhaps I’m too provocative’ ‘perhaps it’s the way I’m dressed’ she thinks, but no, she discovered that only she but all young women who walk alone on the street are subjected to the same primitive behaviour by fellow men in Brussels! We’re not in Saudi Arabia here nor in Egypt or Oman or Baghdad, but in Brussels in the heart of Europe, so tell me someone what is going on here. And why do Europeans stand for this? So this young woman walked with a hidden camera to video her experiences. It is shocking. The video is in French, so those who understand French will understand the ‘names’ she’s being called as men pass her by, and the looks she gets from men, you can see clearly, no language barrier here. I am from the Middle East myself and I ran away to escape this half a century ago. Now it’s arrived on the streets of Europe. And if nothing is done about this it’ll probably get much worse. Are there no men around with brains and intelligence left in this world or is the old saying proving to be true even in 2014 – ‘that men have their brains in their penis!’ and ‘women are here only to satisfy their sexual pleasures’ I can’t believe I am writing this here on my blog but I am so upset at this. And one can see clearly also on this video its Moslem men mostly who are attacking this girl. I’ve had my fill of being politically correct and this has nothing to do with being prejudiced, it has to do with facts. Fact is also that many western men share the same disrespect for women. As I understand as of September such insults from men are going to be fined in Brussels. And about time too I say. Bad behaviour is just not acceptable no matter who from. Human rights is for everyone and not only for one part of the population! Perhaps when these people who have no respect for women and others are fined or punished enough then they will think again. To make things worse I just heard about the two girls who were gang raped and hung somewhere in India! Are men ever going to evolve to be intelligent human beings? Are they ever going to evolved to learn to control their sexuality? Or is it their God given right that they can flaunt themselves whenever they feel aroused and force themselves on whomever they happen to fancy? Again I can’t believe that I’m actually writing this but something inside me is just boiling. I recall only too well when I was seventeen walking on al Rashid Street in the centre of what once was modern cosmopolitan Baghdad, happy with myself and the world, and a young man passing me by pinched my breast! I was in shock! It happened so fast he was long gone before I realised what had happened and my whole world came crashing down on me. There were people all around us, I was to ashamed to react in any way except to freeze! In that one second I was so mad so insulted I could have killed! OK, now it’s out! I’ve kept this to myself for half a century! I have never mentioned this to anyone ever before and this video just brought it all up again – this feeling of rage – at being abused for no reason at all other than being a pretty girl. I wrote a book about my two decades born and raised in Baghdad in the 40s and 50s. Once Upon a Time in Baghdad. I did not include this little secret in my book. Why? Because I’d forgotten it, or so I thought until I saw this video and suddenly wanted to throw up as it all came back to me. It just seems like some things never change. Somehow I think women have to take some of the blame because after all, men are raised by mothers, my question is – what are the mothers teaching their boys? I strongly believe it is up to us women, each one of us, to make the necessary changes in this world and to educate the boys who will soon be men.
Here’s the video

Unique Pedestrian Traffic Sign in Norway!

Traffic Sign makes people do the Monty Phython Silly Walk!

We all know by now that it is very very healthy to laugh. When you laugh you produce hormones that heal your body that make you feel good all round. So you should all have at least one good belly laugh a day, to get rid of many little aches and pains. You don’t get this subscription from any doctor simply because s/he can’t say to you ‘Go home and have a good laugh’ and then send you a bill!
Well it seems someone in Norway had this brilliant idea which should be copied in all cities! Watch this and laugh! Kudos to whoever had this creative brilliant idea to make people laugh! And we should all be allowed to do something silly if only to let the child in us have some fun.
Oh and for those of you who do not know this. The Ministry of Silly Walks was a series of a TV program aired in the UK many years ago where everyone in the Ministry had to silly walk! Maybe if we all walk silly we’ll have some peace on earth!With everyone laughing how can one think of violence.

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN !

IT’S A MEN’S ISSUE: says Jackson Katz
As he says we need more gutsy men who will speak out in protest against all violence by men instead of burying their heads in the sand. Surprised that 810 so far do not like him on you tube? That speaks for itself. It is high time that this issue receives the global attention that it should. Be courageous do your share by sharing this video with everyone you know and don’t know.

Violence and Guns!

December 17, 2012

Little kids go to school On Friday morning December 14, 2012 and don’t come back home! A teenager, seemingly normal quiet Adam Lanza shoots his mother and then goes on to the school where his mother teaches and shoots randomly at 20 kids and 6 grown ups including himself. Everyone wonders at what must go on in this young boy’s head! and Why? Was he angry with his mother, so he decides to eliminate her and then go after kids in the school where she teaches? Was he jealous perhaps that she spent more time with the kids than with him?  Why would a school teacher have so many guns at home so easily accessible to her teenage son? Many questions that need answers.

It seems the messages of increasing senseless violence, in particular with guns, are not going through to some people’s stubborn crystallized brains. Some argue its not the weapons its the people that are evil. Others call for more weapons to defend oneself. Go to the movies with a gun in your pocket, give teachers guns so they can defend the kids and so forth… they argue. Can you imagine that? The US is going backwards to the old wild west! No one blames the media of course. No one blames violent movies, and violent videos games that most kids play nowadays.

Newtown Connecticut

Our prayers, sympathies and thoughts go out with love to all the families who are mourning. A horrific senseless tragedy. 

Two major factors to keep in mind from my point of view. One is that cosmic energies influence all life on earth, which includes our thoughts and behavior. So with the crossing over of the ages from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age, the different energies play havoc with our thinking and feeling behavior. If we are strong, well-balanced, mainly positively inclined we’ll be fine, the aggressive warring energies of the Pisces will not have a negative affect on us. But if we are a little unbalanced, vulnerable, with a weak character and more negatively inclined, the energies will emphasize these antagonistic traits and could make a vicious person out of a seemingly harmless quiet individual with suppressed emotions. The turbulence inside of such a person can be like a volcano that is ready to erupt at any given moment and anything might trigger this person to flip. It does not mean they are evil, it just means they have temporarily gone mad. They have literally lost all their senses.

The other is this – wherever our attention is that is what we become. Nothing new, anyone who has done any kind of self-development course, knows what this means. In other words, we are what we see and hear. When we expose ourselves to violence on a regular basis, as most youngsters are today with violent movies, and playing endless hours with video games that require no more than to shoot, destroy, eliminate, blow up, everyone who crosses your path on and on so you can reach the goal to be declared a winner of the game, what do you think happens in the brain of the player? Especially with young people whose brains are easily impressionable. Soon they will become so immune to shooting, killing and death that for them there is no difference between real life and a video game. They will be shooting, killing, eliminating, real people in real life empty of all sense or feeling, just the same as when they play the video game. This is the scary reality.

As long as people’s priority is money, status, fame, greed, selfishness, accumulating material objects, void of all positive feelings such as love, empathy, compassion, kindness, common sense, caring for and about each other this wave of violence is not going to stop.
