The Sexism Virus

Please watch this I promise that you will not regret it.

Now that I have shared this with you please share it with someone else you know whether it is a girl or a guy it’s important that people know because they more something the more things like Rape, Assault and Cat Calling becomes an epidemic. The video speaks for itself but I just wanted to share a few words of my own experience. I am what you call Asexual and before you judge me no it has nothing to do with plants and no I am not Gay (although I was bullied for exactly the second reason) basically I experience no sexual attraction to cut it short. Anyway I started to notice that when I was 16 I began to mature I would hear comments like “Hey babe come over here…” my view was that this experience was normal quite a few times someone on the bus would move closer to me and I wouldn’t think anything of it. I also had the unfortunate experience of a stalker and I was so scared I came out of college I noticed that this guy behind me was following me but I didn’t know him he caught me up and said “Hey Babe can I have you number” I said no very firmly and carried on walking to the Bus stop he followed and asked me several more times my first thought was I might get assaulted and I was so scared, I repeatedly told him no and that I was not interested and finally he said I hope to see you later he said with a big smile as I got n the Bus. I have to say that it was such a terrifying experience as it was dark and there was nobody else around, when did it get to this where women were treated as property something to win or catch? Now I just wanted to say that I am not the type of girl to wear revealing items of clothing my wardrobe collection consists of Jogging Bottoms and Loose Jeans, I started to notice that people around me would look me up and down with horrible glare and would mutter among st themselves. You may think I have experienced that or maybe you have experienced worse or maybe you are a parent or a young child and stumbled across this I have news for you that you are not alone, if this kind of behavior is Normal then we live in a sick and dying world a world that doesn’t care and cruel world where we raise children to become monsters based on our own ignorance.

Bullying Behaviors

Hello reader you may have experienced this behavior or even seen it, Why does it happen? Many people have suggested many reasons why bullying happens including:

  • Pack mentality
  • Immaturity
  • Bullied Victims
  • Personality
  • Upbringing/Environment

What ever the reasons for bullying are, can it really be excused and why is it that the victim gets briefed, and told what to do and where to be. Personally I have had quite a lot of experience with bullying because of my color my Autism and my personality. If everyone does their bit to fight bullying including teachers, students and parents don’t say things like “It will get better”, “boys will be boys” and “children are like that”. ¬†Hopefully one step at a time we will change our world.

Superheros: Who is your favorite Super Hero?

This video is about how cool Superheroes are and how this links into Art and comic books my personal favorite is superman. Who is yours and whatever Superhero is your favorite I will personally draw and do a video on.

Superheros are a big part of society and have always played a role on how we see ourselves how we lived out our childhood fantasies and our identity.

So I was drawing this and thinking to myself of the days when I watched the TV series of Superman (Smallville) you remember it right? Anyway it also got me thinking what do you think is a Superhero? Why do we idolize them? I am going to test a theory that in our world there are a lot of bad things that happen a lot of disasters. Naturally our brain wants to balance this fact by creating Superheroes this includes the X Men, Hulk and the Incredibles it puts into perspective the forces good and evil and how we are effected by them and also protected from them. Who was the Superhero of your Life/Childhood?
