I don't understand the world any more... although, I wonder if I ever did?
So much is messing with my head.
The age old sex is terrible, we must hide and shame it; yet violence is on the nightly news uncensored.
Women are being murdered by their exes; but men need to be helped to see their kids, mend their relationships. Family court overrules standing AVOs/DVOs.
Victims are being revictimised by the court system over and over again.
Why would anyone put their head up and complain about something that needs to be better in society... when they're piled on, abused, shamed, annihilated.
I picked up a book because this quote was on the cover - Why are we made to fear the witches, and not the men who burned them?
Why is society the way it is?
What can I do to change it?
I think I've been quietly trying to change the world around me for fifty years... and change is so slow that mostly it seems like it's not happening.
I'm disheartened, frustrated, annoyed, but trying so hard to see the good, the joy, the changes, the people doing so much for others. I do need to focus on the good.
There are so many advocates for women who have been hurt, abused and victimised. People who are being voices when others can't speak. These people are angels.
There are those being outspoken and opposing shame and stigma around sex and sexual choices. More angels.
There is acknowledgement of gender fluidity, people allowed to marry whoever they love, rights being restored to many who had few, voices being allowed to be spoken and heard.
There is change happening.
I need to remain positive that life will be better for those to come.
