Don’t Eat the Word Salad

Humans were all made individual, with unique gifts, talents and passions. While society or your family may think they know best what path you “should” follow, the authentic path for you is only known to you.

We have been conditioned to follow the pack, and to blend in with the other worker bees.  The of the heads of the large organizations like businesses and churches, all have their own agenda.

The personal agenda of the leader of an organization may be kept hidden by the leader. If you do not know someone well personally, you have no way to know what their true purposes are.

The machinations of psychopathic and narcissistic leaders are disguised as good will to others, or good will towards the members. It is easy to fall prey to just taking things at face value.

We want to believe that other people have good intentions. Psychopaths that are in the top positions, government, churches, and the ones that control the media, have brainwashed us into believing that most leaders are basically good people.

They go out of their way to shine a light on community service projects they support, and they make sure attention is brought to the few “good deeds” they have supposedly done.

You have been systematically brainwashed into turning the other way when you see things that bother you. Regular people have been trained to assume that their gut feelings are off base, if those feelings don’t seem to match the general consensus.

We have to begin to reactivate that connection with our intuition and our gut feelings. It is part of our neurology for our own protection.

Remember the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes, if it was read to you as a child. If you are not familiar with the story, then I encourage you to get a copy of the book and read it.

We are intelligent human beings capable of assessing things that we see. Most people are moral and have empathy for others.

There are systems in place to make you doubt what you see and feel, in order that certain people can interpret the meaning for you. Remember you are an individual as well as part of a society.

Think for yourself and do not let manipulative people override your critical factors, with a bunch of jumbled word salad that makes no real sense.

eve teasing, violence against women

Violence and Harassment of Young Women in Bangladesh – Eve Teasing

Eve Teasing is a problem of sexual harassment of young girls in the streets by the young men in Bangladesh. This is an ongoing problem for the girls and their families, who live in bangladesh.  Young women have to walk in fear to get from school to their homes.

Eve-teasing is an euphemism used throughout South Asia, in countries such as India, Pakistan,[15] and Bangladesh,[16] for public sexual harassment or molestation (often known as “street harassment“) of women by men, where Eve alludes to the very first woman, according to the Biblical creation story.[17] Sexual harassment affects many women in Bangladesh, especially teenage girls, where the girls are intimidated in the streets, are shouted obscenities at, laughed at, or grabbed by their clothes.  Wikipedia

As you will see from the evidence in the following video, Eve “teasing” is more that just verbal teasing of young women and girls. It is sexual harassment and it can become physical.

The young men in this video grab the girl and restrain her so that she cannot continue along her way.

They also threaten her with a weapon. The term “Eve Teasing” is very misleading, as this common hostile threat upon girls in Bangladesh , is very frightening to the girls.

This next video is a message to the young men in Bangladesh not to treat strange women in this way because “What if it were your mother, sister, fiancee or friend?”

This next video shows a mother who stopped her car to scold the boys who were Eve Teasing the her daughter. Wouldn’t you do the same?

This is a form of stalking. The boys will wait along paths that they know certain girls must follow to get home. The sometimes they will follow the girls, yelling obscene things to them.

The stalkers do not see this as a crime or think there anything wrong with it.

Eve Teasing is a terrifying thing for the young women who have to walk to get from place to place in Bangladesh.  These poor girls are terrorized just trying to get to their homes or walk in the town.

 As the rights of women are getting better in Bangladesh, hopefully this will decrease, but for now it continues as part of the day to day lives of these young women.

When asked why she did not report being stalked and harassed one young woman said…

…Sonia replied, “I am scared that the men will harm me if I even utter a word that sounds like a protesting word. What if they become angry and take me to a side and try to assault me, or even try to rape me? Do you think anyone will come ahead to save me? No, there is no one for girls like us. So, I just bear all the teasing and all those nasty words and all those nasty indications that they throw on us.”

“What about the police?” I asked her. Sonia smiles as if she has heard a joke. Then she replies, “Police just enjoy the show. They don’t help us.”  source: Dispatchesinternational.org

Eve teasing is mental abuse, emotional abuse and will cause psychological trauma in many of the victims. There is a new effort towards reducing the incidents of Eve teasing. It is called the She Police. 

Since the Hyberabad Police Commissionerate pressed 60 all-women “She Police” teams into service on December 24 last year, 23 people have been caught eve-teasing, stalking and harassing women in public places in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.  source: The Dekkan Herald

My thoughts and prayers are with these young women that this violence and abuse against them will stop.
