Do we really want to be Socialists?

Recommended Posts

Jackie C.

That's absolutely awful... and naturally targets women. North Korea isn't really socialist though. More of a dystopian hellscape with a mad dictator. Not too different from the US actually. 

 

That was snarky. Mostly true, but snarky.

You'r right but felt bad for the women who would like to wear female attire and look attractive. I'd hate to have such an oppressive government.

Agreed. We need to make sure this sort of thing doesn't become commonplace. Every woman deserves the chance to feel comfortable with herself, what she's wearing, who she is and who she wants to be.

Women caught wearing a particular type of wrinkle-free trousers are pushing back against the crackdown, arguing with inspectors tasked with regulating their attire.

 

I say Down with wrinkle-free trousers. Boo To them. An iron and board was good enough for my Mother and my mothers mother. They dont know they are born today,

 

Problem is. The culture is all diffrent. We might get all narked about what they do in the east. However For them its been normal to respect the past traditions.  Are we just imposing our moral values on them?

 

Now im not saying they are right. I would be the first to say. Kim Jong un....... Bit of a nutter isnt he?

 

But unlike say japan where they have many traditions they have also embraced western culture But also kept there own to Where North Korea is a closed state. Only now is it beginning to open a little. Lets not forget North and South Korea was technically still at war with each other. Just a cease fire kept them from tearing each other up.   South Korea intially refusing to actually sign a peace agrement then therefore  I can see why they run a tight ship.

Even japan was very much like this pre 1945.

 

So to lay blame on anyone. Lets try South Korea and the west in general as realistically peace wasnt reached until 2018. So it took 65 yeas for peace. You can kind of understand why they are a little bit aprehensive about western culture really.

“She was unable to report for work. The woman appealed [to the inspectors] saying she was in an urgent situation and was unable to [wear appropriate] clothing, but the inspectors made a spectacle out of her by having her stand by the side of the road,” said the source.

 

 

That is an improvement. Being honest 10 years ago they would have chuicked her in prison for less. Give them time.

 

Im all for change. But is our culture for the better? I guess the history we make today will be our judges when viewed in  the future

 

maybe im wrong but if it was you. Would you be willing to embrace some strange fashion statement if your neighbour wore it just after you had a bust up with them and shook hands after years. I do not think you would embrace there culture straight away either..

 

 

The article seems to miss out the history and reasons behind the why is it like this. Just telling the here and now.

The here and now is the time in which these women live, by their actions they are saying screw history, we want to look like women and be pretty. I can't slight them for that!

That's an excellent point. It's easy to forget that tradition has a much tighter hold on hearts and minds in the East. My inner mamma bear just gets grumbly when women are being mistreated. It's easy to forget how different things are in a closed, repressive state like North Korea when South Korea is so Westernized.

 

I can't guess about culture in Scotland. My great-grandmother left when she was 14 and wouldn't talk about her trip after she went back to visit. I've had friends who came to visit and came back saying good things so I'd guess probably. I'd say US culture is better in some ways, worse in others. We could use more of their connection with our neighbors. I like having enough food to eat. I'd like better access to things North Koreans take for granted. There could probably be something of a beneficial cultural exchange if we could both step back a bit from the lunatics who are somehow in charge. It's certainly possible to improve the future without forgetting the past. As an American, I'm the first to admit we're terrible at it, but it's been done elsewhere.

 

I like wrinkle-free clothing though. Ironing is a tremendous bother.

 

Hugs!

Agree with you and good luck to them. Sadly there Goverment is not ready to embrace the west as it stands now. But give it time..

You have a lovely smile in that picture of yours Jackie. A sight to behold 😊

 

Scotland. What can i say. It rains a lot. Its cold most of the time. But the people are freindly and the whisky is wonderful. Also it would seem im getting a thing for a nice man in a kilt. So its a win win for me.

 

I dont live in bigger towns or city. but do pop in from time to time. Realistically its just like any other city in anysville. But just with culture. However the scots always like to have there own spin on it as you will observe. below

That Traffic cone has always been there. Its actually in the centre of Glasgow. Im sure theres a reason but never asked.

      Hey Mex We all do that. Jackie is right it dose  take a lot of confidence and courage to wake up and be happy with you.  I know that sounds like some stupid Hallmark bull, but 2 yr ago i was ready to end it. I get the bills the booze  and wrote out a will. I took the bills drank the booze. Had the craziest nightmare. The next day i did not die,, i piss off. But it gave me some hope. Today i still get depress but not as bad and i stop judge myself against other CIS. Just head down , work save,  continue to fight  medical for my surgeries and work out.   Be safe, be proud and be happy being you

      Congratulations, Emily! on your commitment to self improvement and the opportunity for compassionate service to your fellow human beings. You've made a great choice.  Now, go and get it❣️
    • KayC
      That's a great post @Sandra6sandy9sand!  thank you for sharing your thoughts and connecting with what I am sure many of us are feeling. Regardless of our personal situations or differences, if somebody cannot see how interconnected we are by Covid and societies problems then they are truly lost.  This is actually a great opportunity for a fundamental change in America's "constitution" and direction (i.e., America's social conscious and morality ... not the actual Constitution... I agree it hasn't changed)   VOTE 2020❣️  
    • KayC
      That's a great attitude Leah, and that you have been able to settle into a comfortable place.   I see the value of therapy for myself (and others here I assume) as helping us to find our inner voice and start to live truly as we feel we should.  Its difficult to sometimes deal with the negative feelings as we may try to convince ourselves that the path to our journey should follow societies expectations. I hate labels, I hate the idea that we are somehow required to declare/come out, but I also know that's the reality that society places on us. YES!  I agree❣️❣️❣️

      My daughter is a little shy about her transition. First of all, after nearly 5 months, she looks like a girl and hard to distinguish otherwise, especially at her young age. How did it workout for you or your daughter? School is not going to start right away in person, however it will be online and he name is very feminine. The school faculty has been updated about her new status, but the students don't know as of yet. I appreciate you sharing your experiences so I can better prepare her.

      OK so here might be a fun question for everyone.   After you started presenting as either a woman or man, have you ever either dated someone you knew, like a guy friend or a girl friend, or have you been hit on buy someone you knew? I would love to know if transitioning changed the friend dynamic or made old friends think differently about you. You don't have to respond and you don't have to get specific with any details. I'm just curious if old friends see you as a completely different person after your transition.
    • TransMex
      I compare the way I look with how other women look a lot. That's practically all I do all day at this point. I want to look like them.

      Bri2020, I wish you luck, just know that what ever happens, you have us to get support from.. Did you like the duct tape hair removal thing.. lol
    • HollyNoel
      I had my first gender therapy session last Tuesday. I told her thatb I've always known that I was a girl fron the youngest age and that I wished I could have switched places with my sister. I told her that when I finally told my mom I felt like a giant crushing weight had been lifted off my chest. At this point in my life I feel I'm ready to have the surgery but I know they want to make sure I'm sure thats what I really want. I feel that that is the best course of action. I may feel I'm ready but I haven't even lived as a woman yet. Though I still feel I'm ready. I wont regret having it. Been a dream of mine since I was 12.
    • Bri2020
      I'm in the hair removal process anyways so.....     Thanks everyone for your thoughts. Lots to think about.
    • Jani
      Good for you!  👏  Thanks for getting involved. 
    • Jani
      Some do not like that the WPATH protocols and look at them as gatekeeping.  But the time required to get approval is done to ensure you are ready and fully understand the change.  As I told my therapist, I knew it would only change what's below my belt and that only I would know.  (unlike electrolysis or body changes from HRT).  Its doesn't change how you react to others, or any other "issues" one might have.  Those that regret surgery IMO are those who have not prepared and been honest with themselves.  Obviously living as a woman has its good and bad sides.  After all we live in a male dominated society.  That said, I don't believe anyone here has any regrets!  I certainly don't.

      When I'm ready to come out on social media I'm just going to rip that duct tape right off and who ever decides they don't want to be around me or talk to me then I'm just going to let them go. There was only one person I was scared to tell and that was bmy mom, everyone else can just go lick a pickle! I can't keep caring about what people think of me. If they cared then they would be supportive and not judge me because of who I am on the outside. I'm still me, the wrapper doesn't change the candy bar. It's still the same candy on the inside. So for me at least, when it comes to social media, I'm just going to put it out there and whatever hair comes off with that sticky duct tape will have to just go.
    • Sandra6sandy9sand
      Thank you Jani and Sally,   We are all in this together. The woman I am wants to do something to help make things better. I know I can’t do anything about COVID other than wear a mask and be careful.   I’m going to work at our precinct for voting again in November. I feel that this is my little part to make sure that anyone who wants to vote has a chance.   Love and Hugs   Sandra
