Fury Road a shitbox or a movie to watch.


In all honesty I would say, save your money and not watch it. I would compare it to the crap from the last installment of Fast and the furious with very little to no story and just car chasing mind numbing blowing things up.

The feminist bullshit that it is a feminist movie is just that Bullshit. The bullshit that Theron is a fresh strong female lead is just that bullshit.

Alien, Zena Warrior princess, Anna and the King, Thomas crown affair, the Matrix, all have had strong female roles and not one was raised as being a feminist movie. The reason Fury Road, this vile cesspool of shit water is, is because of one reason. Feminist is trending now and if Hollywood knows one thing it is how to get your money. And the sheeple that are modern Feminist will flock to the movie theater and watch the tripe.

Go ahead and leave your comments if you think I am wrong, if you think I am right. Have a discussion about feminism as I would say that I am a supporter of Feminism. Of the true feminism when it actually meant equal rights and not populated by liars who promote falsehoods, and shaming to quiet the opposition. Modern day Feminist who lie and shame are nothing but Cunts and Bitches. And if the words offend you then fuck off.

2020 and 2022


The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be a hard one to see happen. The reason being that the country itself is still recovering economically from the fall of the dollar. Yes the US dollar had an impact on the Japanese economy. But if it can be pulled off it may be an interesting thing. Depending on how the events are scheduled and what technology is being used at the time.
One unique point being that the Olympics are now being allowed to venture out of the hosting city. This may be a positive or a negative depending on who you are. Positive for the Olympics as it will allow for a much larger event but a negative for the locals who will see their lives put into harder situations having to flip the bill for stadiums and transportation that outside of the Olympics will have a much smaller use value. This can be seen back to the Japan Korea World Cup with places like the Toyota stadium.  But we shall see.

On the flip side Qatar 2022 World Cup should not happen. Aside from the fact that the event must be held out of season due to the temperature there is the safety concern.  Especially since Qatar solves matters with the use of Sharia Law. Well pasted below is an exceprt from the Qatar Website.  As a foreigner if I was attending the World Cup there I would pay attention to the Modest dress code and the drinking and smoking code especially the drinking in public. Then you have the public displays of affection and such.  Also the insulting of being rude or expressing negative opinions. Remember to insult Muhammad and or Islam is a big no no.  Lest we forget the lessons of Charlie Hepdo, Dutch Cartoonists, etc. I for one will not be attending or watching them as I will not support a country that bases their laws around goat herder ideology.

Smoking / alcohol / drugs

Alcohol consumption in Qatar involves several restrictions. Luxury hotels can sell alcohol to their adult non-Muslim customers. However, expatriates will have to obtain a permit to purchase alcohol for personal consumption. To obtain a permit, a letter from employer, signed and stamped by authorized person in the company, stating your position, basic pay, accommodation, religious affiliation, marital status, valid passport, residence permit and a deposit are required.

The Qatar Distribution Company is permitted to import alcohol, and operates the only liquor stores in the country. Alcohol can also be purchased on-premises of certain clubs and hotels. Drunken driving, public intoxication and other alcohol-related offenses are taken seriously and can result in imprisonment, fines, or even deportation.

Penalties for possession, use and trafficking in illegal drugs, are severe in Qatar, and offenders will have to undergo long-term imprisonment and pay heavy penalties.

Behavior / Dress code in Qatar

Islam and tribal traditions form strong foundation for Qatar’s customs, laws and practices. Expatriates are expected to be sensitive to Islamic beliefs and practises. Qatar does not permit dressing in a revealing or provocative manner, including wearing of sleeveless shirts and blouses, halter tops and shorts. Western bathing attire is acceptable only at hotel pools and beaches.

Incidents such as getting involved in foul language/gestures or insults can often result in arrest, overnight imprisonment, and/or fines, irrespective of whether the incident occurs between private parties or officers of the law. Insulting somebody in public is also considered a punishable offense.

Homosexuality is illegal considered a criminal offense in Qatar, and those convicted may be subjected to lashings, imprisonment and/or deportation. Also, intimacy in public between men and women, including teenagers, can lead to arrest.

Islamic Law (Sharia)

Expatriates in Qatar will be subject to Qatari law, which is heavily predicated upon Islamic Law, involving heavy penalties which would be considered a misdemeanour in any European state. Violators of Qatari law may be subjected to a ban until the dispute is settled, which can take months for settlement. Local authorities may detain anyone considered to be potential witness, and the relatives of persons of interest, for the entire duration of investigations, without charge or access to legal counsel. Once arrested, the Qatari police will not be in a position to release a suspect until ordered to do so by the Public Prosecution and Court Service.

Women’s Rights

Women in Qatar may vote and run for public office. Women in Qatar hold leadership positions in several ministries / supreme councils. Women are allowed to go out and drive without any male companion. Although, Qatari women wear the abaya, there are no formal restrictions for expat women, although dressing modestly is a must.

Religion

The Qatari government uses Sunni law as the basis of its criminal and civil regulations. Religious tolerance is guaranteed to a certain extent. Expatriates are allowed to affiliate with their faiths, and are allowed to follow Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, and Bahai, provided, they are religious in private, and do not offend public order or morality.

Religious practice and religion are sensitive issues in Qatar. Hence discussing religious matters in public should be treated with care and sensitivity. Proselytizing is illegal in Qatar. Qatari law considers it inappropriate to attempt conversion of a member of one religion into another, or sharing one’s faith with a person of a different faith. Such practices are considered as violations of Qatari law, and may involve deportation or imprisonment.

Also, charitable activities of any kind require approval from Qatar Authority for Charitable Activities (QACA).

Crime

Qatar is comparatively a trouble-free nation, with low incidence of crime. However, it is better to be aware that there is the threat from terrorism that is otherwise seen in the region.

There have been occasional verbal and physical harassment against expatriate men, or unaccompanied expatriate women. Reports of petty theft are not very frequent, but, travellers are cautioned not to leave valuables such as cash, jewellery, and electronic items in unsecured hotel rooms or unattended public places.

Oh my Japan Geisha


This may seem like a running theme but it is not. Just a few posts and I urge you all not to take all Japanese this way. To do so will do a grave injustice to the countless of Japanese who support the openness and fairness of all people. Without them I would not have been able to see my son born or to have my lovely wife.
All in thanks to Ariana Miyamoto we are seeing other stories of great people in Japan who are denied the hold a certain status not because of a lack in ability but by this old mentality that you must be Japanese to hold that position.
I give you ‘A beautiful life’: The Australian woman who became a geisha the story of Fiona Graham.
This lovely story shows how beautiful Japan is and what foreigners who love this country such as I want to immerse ourselves with. There are aspects that we want to learn and master, one of my friends made a comment just last week that if I was living in a city like Kyoto I would be considered a Japanese Foreigner because I tend to live a more Japanese life than even some natural born Japanese. But This story is not to detract from the serious conversation that needs to be happening about race relations in Japan. And the people who are denied a certain station in their profession not because they lack the ability but simply because they are not 100% Japanese. I urge you to read the full story http://edition.cnn.com/2015/02/01/travel/cnngo-travel-hokkaido-geisha/

It offends me 1


I found myself watching a video on the youtube channel Moral Courage, from time to time they have good things to watch. This time they didn’t. It was a girl talking about how to deal with sexist jokes and though she tried to pass it off as not being a double standard it clearly was.

So in response to her three ways to stop sexist jokes I will state her points and contradict them each one in it’s own post..

1. Make it personal

When someone makes a sexiest, racist, bigoted joke. Make it personal was her position. Make it known that you are offended and ask your friends how would they feel if they were in that position.

My position against this is very simple. If you have friends who make such jokes and you know that they are just making light of something and not truly being derogatory but you still take offense, then A) you should evaluate your overgrown need to make everyone think as you think. B) ask yourself if you truly are friends with the person if you only laugh at their small minded jokes out of a need to belong, and C) think as to why you are taking it personal. Her example as in calling things that we find wrong or faulty as being gay. Though the term Gay has a long history in the English language it still has some connect to homosexuals but it she fails to understand that language grows and changes with time/ society and so on. I am reminded of the word Burly which some people choose not to use because it was a word used during slave auctions.  But if you were to really learn the English Language you would see that it was a term that originally was used to make a statement on an attractive male, someone being physically attractive, strong and so on.

So what I see wrong with trying to censor words is simply this. 1) it does not work, 2)You are forcing others to conform to your views 3) you are taking away the rights of free expression, no matter how good your intentions are,
