Feminism.

Published September 10, 2017 by I Blog A Little Bit Of Everything

Hey guys.

Today isn’t one of my lighthearted posts. I’m sat here wondering if I should actually press publish.

 

Before you just ignore this post , just know that today, I’m not talking about all the injustices against women. Quite the opposite actually. I’m talking about inequality between females and males.

 

I’m writing this post because a blog is a place to share a message. A place where you can change the world. I know that I am a relatively small blog – there’s only 150 of us, but if only 1 person reads this post, then I will have made the world a slightly better place. And, if you agree with what I’m saying, maybe you’d like to reblogg?

 

So, Feminism. By definition it meansΒ the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes. Today, I’m going to be focusing on the part that says ‘equality of the sexes’.

 

Now, firstly, let me tackle a common misconception ‘Feminism is all about women. It has fem as a prefix, so it’s for females’. No, just no. Think of it this way, mankind includes men and women, so feminism also includes men and women.

 

I don’t know if it’s just me that interprets feminism like this, but to me Β  feminism is basically about equality- women can do anything that men can do, but also that men can do anything that women can do. Today I’m going to be talking about the fact that men can do anything that women can do.

 

The first thing that I’ve noticed is about kids and their toys. Many years ago, it was about how there were girl toys and boy toys. Now, it’s all good for girls to play with ‘boy’s toys’ like cars and diggers and superheroes. But the thing is, we haven’t evolved as a society for boys to be able to play with ‘girl’s toys’ like Barbies or dolls or princesses. I don’t think that’s particularly fair; do you?

 

The other Β thing that I’ve noticed is about makeup. Most girls and women are happily going around in their foundation, and mascara and concealer and all that jazz. However, not many boys and men can go around with makeup because society has told them that that’s a girl thing. However, when a guy is brave enough to wear makeup they get ridiculed and called names. Society puts pressure on us to look perfect. I have got acne, not bad but there are a lot of spots on my face. So, I wear makeup to make me feel more confident. There are loads of guys who get acne and want to cover it up but are worried about getting called names. This isn’t fair and should change.

 

Those are 2 of the main things that I’ve noticed about inequality. I could easily go on for longer, but then this post would go on forever. I could also talk about the how women haven’t got completely equal rights everywhere, but that’s a story for another day.

 

Do you agree with what I’m saying? Do you have any other opinions? Let me know in the comments below!

Disney Pin Trading 101

Published September 3, 2017 by I Blog A Little Bit Of Everything

Hey guys!

 

Today I’m going to share with you the basics of Disney Pin Trading.

 

What Is Pin Trading?

Disney Pin Trading is a fun activity where you buy pins and trade them with people that work at the parks or other guests.

 

What is a Disney pin?

A Disney Pin is a type of badge. They have a special Disney design. They are only available at the Disney Parks.

 

What do I need to start trading?

Well, all you need is pins. I would recommend buying a pack with 4 in that costs about €15 ~ this is the cheapest way to buy, plus you get 4 pins to trade on.

If you would like, you can also buy things such as a bag or lanyard to display your pins, but they are not necessities.

I would also recommend getting some spare backs as a precaution, but they are extras and are not required.

#BackToHogwarts

Published September 1, 2017 by I Blog A Little Bit Of Everything

Hello!

IMG_5005

Today marks Albus Severus Potter’s first day attending Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry.

 

Today King’s Cross station was absolutely packed with die- hard Harry Potter fans because it’s officially #19YearsLater! Everyone raised their wands in appreciation and wore their smartest robes trying to get onto Platform 9 and 3/4, although none were successful.

 

Today is the 19th year since the release of the Deathly Hallows. At the end of the book and film it shows you what happens 19 years later, and it’s Albu’s Potter’s first day at Hogwarts. And that day is today!

 

But, I think the real question on everybody’s mind is; how was Albus’ first day at school?

 

To find out, read the Cursed Child, a play by John Tiffany, based on the best-selling series by J.K Rowling.

Let’s Get Real; What’s The Deal With WTJ Now In Color?

Published July 23, 2017 by I Blog A Little Bit Of Everything

*Please don’t get offended if I put “colour” instead of “color ” as where I’m from, that’s how you spell it.*

 

So, this post idea all started when I saw this video by Moriah Elizabeth (I own no rights to this material).

 

This really saddened me because I love her WTJ (Wreck This Journal) videos.

 

So, you know how you look up Wreck This Journal on Google and this comes up?

They’re all nice and pretty and decorated pages, right?

 

Well, in Wreck This Journal Now In Color, this is on the front and back pages.

 

So, basically, we have been told that we have been doing this book wrong. Um… no! That’s not fair. We have spent our hard earned money on this book, so we shall do what we please with it.

 

So, this post is basically to say that I am going to decorate this book. It still says this in the front… (instructions are open to interpretation)

I have a question for you. When I am decorating this book, would you like to see it as a series (like me decorating pages and giving you updates every so often), or would you just like to see a finished flip through? Let me know in the comments below!

TYONI You Don’t Have Netflix

Published July 9, 2017 by I Blog A Little Bit Of Everything

Heyo! Just to let you know, TYONI means

Things

You

Only

Know

If

1) If you want to watch something, you either have to search for it on TV or buy it on DVD.

 

2) Finales air later for you, so…

 

3) Shows are spoiled! (I have been avoiding certain people to avoid the chat about the PLL Finale! – Which I haven’t seen!)

 

4) People keep asking you why you don’t have Netflix.

 

5) Then you say “because I don’t.”
