So I have a little rant, yesterday at Bass Pro Shop an employee stop me and my dog Blue. He’s the stafforshire bullTerrier, and the man told me I need to make sure I didn’t let him lose. At first I was confused because he was leashed and had two collars on. I told the man that Blue was very well trained and that he is leashed. Then the man told me he didn’t want my dog to bite anyone because a “Pit Bull” got lose and was running around the store a few days prior. I told the man that Blue is ESA certified which means he has to meet a certain standard in training to acquire a certification. The employe didn’t seem to understand and instead tried to tell me how to handle my dog. Now while this was going on Blue was at my side sitting perfectly not moving just sitting there, no signs of aggression, fear, or anxiety. While his sister Spartan was walking around sniffing, this isn’t bad it just shows the difference in training. This man just seemed ignorant of the bully breeds and the means people train dogs. I have seen people with dogs they can not handle and even abused dogs that showed fearful aggression. However I know for a fact a good owner would never put their dog in a situation the dog could not handle. This man was the only one there that seemed to have a problem with Blue and if anyone else did no one said anything. The rest of the employees were very nice and were petting both my dogs. I just don’t understand the fear of a well trained dog or the ignorance some may have of bully breeds.
One thing I tell women dealing with a boss that treats them differently because of their race, gender, age, etc. is to be proactive. One way to be proactive in situations like that, is to always let your boss know when you receive good reviews and compliments for your work. This puts the boss on notice of your work and serves as a counterargument to a bad review. So forward that email to your boss the next time someone compliments your work.
There’s a 15-minute or “less” element going behind-the-scenes. When crimes happen what happens is between two people : one person can’t tell you. So you Jane to work backwards. That’s what #physical injury is since CENTRALIZATION is returning to #origin. Go back in that #mentalabuse way thru #education ( #discrimination & #retaliation) and #healthcare ( #stigma) 👎👎✌️👎👎 🐰 #TWO#WHITE puff—poof—gone like vapor. This is super important 💨💦💨💦💨💦 what is storytelling? It’s being #read to which is a listening exercise. This is a #LIFESKILL & if you don’t “active” listen, or PRETEND YOU DON’T EXCEPT IF USING #theWorst lie (been listening), without paying attention, it’s hard but if I can do it. My #brain hurts all the time.
Another case of Bullying, Discrimination and abuse brought against UK Sport.
#RUN is the tell all story of that culture in the lead in to the 2012 Olympics.

Before and After... -
I'm LOVING my new look! Although, I'm going to have to get used to people staring at me. -
I'll take a second to make a point here... what's with people who genuinely look a bit different than the general population, getting all upset and pretending to be surprised when they get noticed? -
You know what I mean- the girl with the Mohawk, the goth with the black lipstick and eyeshadow, the person with the face tattoos, the 7 foot tall guy... of COURSE people are going to notice you! -
It's how people are built! We are designed by evolution to notice things of difference in our environments. It keeps us safe. It's hard-wired into us and it's not our fault. In fact, Its beyond our control! -
My little sister has a Great Dane dog. Whenever she walks him, people stare. Of course they do- he's the size of a Shetland Pony (literally). There is no way he's ever going to blend in. -
Same goes for someone really stunningly beautiful or handsome- people will look at you! Make your peace with this! -
So, now that I have this outrageous hair, I need to accept that it will draw attention. There is no point walking around, getting all upset about something that is inevitable! -
Disclaimer: Now, whilst people will look at things that are different and this is OK, what's NOT OK is to be judged and treated differently because of it. That's called discrimination.
Currently a place popular for things such as kpop, kdramas, and cosmetics, has an underlying issue not being discussed. South Korea currently has modern day slave farms taking advantage of the vulnerable and disabled.
South Korea's disabled are usually ignored and discriminated against. They're vulnerable people and lots, if not most, are homeless, This makes them easy targets and they're being used as modern day slaves for salt farms, seaweed farms, etc.
I highly recommend this video for more insight within the problem:

BLUE EYES VS BROWN EYES
In 1968 after the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, a teacher in the USA decided to teach her students about the real impact of racism. Jane Elliott recognised that the problem was the disconnect between what whites knew about racism and what african americans experienced.
Blue-eyed children were given pride of place in the classroom. They were given extra recess time, a second helping of food at lunch, and they were allowed to sit at the front of the classroom and participate in class discussions. Brown-eyed children were forced to sit at the back of the class and were more severely reprimanded for the same type of behavior that blue-eyed children got away with. Elliott even made up a scientific 'fact' that the melanin that caused blue eyes had been found to be linked with a higher intelligence.
The results were thought provoking. By the end of the day, the blue-eyed children viciously put down the brown-eyed children. Not only that, but the quiet blue-eyed students did better than usual on a class assignment, whereas the brown eyed usually successful students struggled. The next day this was reversed with similar results.
The children learned a valuable lesson about how it feels to be subjected to racism and bigotry. This experiment has been replicated many times raising empathy in young people. I have used this myself with young people and the experience was very meaningful.
Something to think about.

The best thing about London is definitely @unitydiner. I think you can tell by the look on my face and the fact that I have zero eyeballs due to smiling so hard.
This place is such a haven for amazing food and people. If you are in London, actually EUROPE, you must come here and experience this wonderful place.
The food here is a perfect example of how you can eat absolutely ANYTHING you want being vegan - fried chicken wings, mac n cheese, steak, burgers, loaded cheesy fries with bacon and chicken bites, cheesecake, brownie, ice cream, the list goes on. And all the money you spend on food and drinks here goes to helping the animals.
So proud of all the amazing hard work that @forliberation@earthlinged the whole @surgeactivism team and the extremely kind people behind this have done.

Sexual harassment. Cat calling. Gender stereotyping. Objectification.
Gender discrimination impacts all of us. We're calling an end to it.
You can join us and challenge discrimination by: 🗣️ Speaking out about your own experiences
Call out your own experiences of discrimination. This could be highlighting sexist remarks made by your friends or peers or reporting harassment on public transport.
People may not like to have their viewpoints challenged; they may react in a negative or aggressive way, so if your instincts tells you that a situation is too risky, your own safety is the priority. 🎥 Calling out discrimination in the media and advertising
Write to advertisers, marketers and media outlets if you come across stories that portray women and girls in a reductive or unfair way. Find out who's responsible and write to them to let them know your thoughts.
Also - vote with your feet. Don’t support entertainment that is disrespectful to girls and women and doesn’t represent their true power, potential, talent and diversity. 🙌 Supporting other campaigners
Seek out local campaign groups. Join or set up school or university societies for gender equality and female leadership. There is strength in numbers - more voices tackling a particular issue means they are more likely to be heard.
Helping to raise the profile of campaigns by other marginalised groups is a vital part of ending discrimination. For example, girls from a minority or indigenous community may experience racism as well as sexism, and members of the LGBTIQ+ community may also be experiencing homophobia. Be their allies and lend your voice to their causes.
