My Thoughts On The Political Parties For GE17

Is it wrong of me to think that only the middle class virtue signalers and disillusioned poor people are the ones to vote for Labour? I’m sorry if that was rude to say, I don’t mean it in a horrible way, and I am not trying to put people down.

I still do not know who to vote for, and the more I look up each party, the more and more confused I am.

To be truthful, I don’t trust any of them not to make things any more worse than they are now. It’s just so hard not to just go for Labour, since my MP is pretty good, and I’ve spoken to her a couple of times about my mental health hub.

Most of all I do not trust myself in voting for the right person, the simple fact of the matter is, I know I will punish myself either way. So, does one go with their gut feeling, or does one go with their mind?

All I know is that none of them really cares about mental health problems, they will all still cut funding to Mental Health Trusts one-way or the other, they all will.

I know that sounds horrible to say and I feel awful for saying this. However In politics, no one keeps their promises, not even the ones who have the best intentions.

Take for instance Corbyn, how do I know he isn’t going to turn the UK into a Communist Utopia? Are we going to have 1984? Are we going to be dictated to as to what to say, think, and act? This scares the living hell out of me; I think it comes from being sexually abused and bullied so unable to speak up about what was happening.

Then there is the Tories and Theresa May, How do I know she isn’t going to stiff my parents out of their pensions? My dad is already retired, and we just about cope on his money. My mum is worried that Theresa is going to up the retirement age even further, and my mum would like to stop working, I think working as hard as she does makes her mental health worse.

Thirdly, there are the Lib Dems, who from what I can tell cannot make up their mind as to what they want to do. Their Election advert is long and pointless, to the point where I want to turn it over because it is boring and time consuming without saying anything at all.

UKIP aren’t very popular in my area, might be because I live in London and we have a ton of immigrants and refugees here. I don’t go out enough into the world to notice much, though when I do go out, they’ve been pretty cool. Nigel the French yogurt as I like to call him scares me. Though he brought up about Brexit, which I did not vote because again I knew I would be beating myself up the whole time. He hasn’t really done anything, and his policies are pretty much for people who hate people. I hate people, but this is the kind of hate where you feel the need to tell people, not the kind where you want to hide away. However, both could be the same thing if you think about.

In addition, feminists and social justice warriors would kill you if they found out you did, and there would be the same kind of protests and fights that are going on right now in America over Trump.

So who should I vote for?

The answer is not UKIP and Liberal Democrats at least.

The power of words | Felipe Contreras

Quite often in a discussion I’ve heard the phrase “semantics”, as if the meaning of words didn’t really matter in a discussion. Words are the building blocks of complex ideas, and if we don’t have …

Other People Aren’t Responsible For Your Mental Health: Why ’13 Reasons Why’ Is Pretty Much Bullshit | Thought Catalog

Other people can’t save you, and you shouldn’t want them to.

This Netflicks show sounds like it is taking mental health advice from Tumbler, where they romanticize and lie about having having mental health problems constantly.

I hate that we have programmes and films pandering to them, we need more programmes and films telling the truth, and empowering people to want to get better for themself.

Great article.

As scientists prepare to march, Science for the People or Social Justice Warriors spreading their cancer reboots | Science | AAAS

1970s activist group hopes current crisis will be fertile soil

So basically Social Justice and Feminism has the hijacking of science to put in their bag of tumours that that are cancerous. Science is going to be put backwards, all because of Social Justice, so don’t hold out when you have cancer or any other diseases to actually get a treatment, because they will all be under a quota system. They will also only be applied to the most oppressed people, so men, don’t count on them finding a cure for your cancer, or any other diseases that affect men more, or white people.

I would also not hold my breathe on new medications being made by feminists, so people with mental health problems, if you’re a man or white, or CIS Gendered don’t count on it.

Plus Steve Shives and his band of idiots are supporting and even going to the march, so you know this is a serious thing. My point is, social justice is not going to save lives, people are going to die, even more than there is now, all for fucking equality.

'Pussy Hats' Oppress Transgender People Now | The Daily Caller

‘Transgender women certainly should not be left out of any definition of womanhood’

This does not surprise me anymore, since the oppression Olympics is getting smaller and smaller now, they are bound to now eat each other to the point that there is nothing left.

This is why intersectional fourth wave feminism and social justice are cancer, they have to out do themselves. It’s sad, I know girls and grown women at work places and school, who would have the hardest life in the world. This just sound like that, a bunch of girls who think they are the most special and have the hardest life in the world and play on that.

This is high school Girls 101.

App State requests gender-inclusivity disclaimer on papers

Appalachian State is advising students to add disclaimers to academic papers indicating that they are using gender-neutral pronouns “to be inclusive.”

If students choose to use “they” in place of “he or she” on an assignment, they are encouraged to add a disclaimer at the top stating that “This paper uses ‘they’ as a singular third-person pronoun to be inclusive of all genders.”

UC Davis language guide claims only white people are racist

A glossary of social justice terms published by UC-Davis plainly asserts that only white people are capable of racism.

A related list of “Words That Hurt” discourages even self-deprecating references to being “fat,” explaining that they “demean and devalue fatness/fat bodies” and imply that “there is an acceptable amount of food to eat.”
