The Law Really Is An Ass!!

Today i read something quite interesting and thought provoking.

” In most countries worldwide it is illegal to have sex with a child less that 16 years of age, yet it can be allowed with the parents consent to marry a child of less than 16 years of age”

So this got me thinking, it seems in the world pedophilia is allowed as long as you marry that child that you are defiling. This shows that the law really is an ass. I say this because i feel it is by no means ok for a grown ass man, or even a boy to marry a child, taking away their child hood and innocence.

Know i know i talk about this a lot and i am probably just rambling, but the fact of the matter is i am being bombarded with news of kids being married off  by their parents even at the tender age of 12 years old and the media in which i see these stories plastered on is trying to make it seem like this is a normal occurrence, it is pretty much socially acceptable practice in most Muslim countries ( Now dont get me wrong, i am in no way saying this is a Muslim practice, i am just saying it is mostly done in Muslim countries like Malaysia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, etc.)It just makes me sick to my stomach.

World Aids Day!!

As I wake up this morning i make it a point to let everyone know what today is. I have realized that it is in the society that i live in that no one care about educating themselves on this crucial matter, they live life( ignorantly thinking it does not concern them) day to day having unprotected sex, selling their bodies for not more than 20 buck even some of the doctors attempt to use the same needle on different patients *gasp*! So here is my little piece of encouragement and enlightenment for all who might be oblivious to this matter.

world

 

World AIDS Day is celebrated on December 1 each year around the world. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories such as increased access to treatment and prevention services.

UNAIDS took the lead on World AIDS Day campaigning from its creation until 2004. From 2004 onwards the World AIDS Campaign’s Global Steering Committee began selecting a theme for World AIDS Day in consultation with civil society, organisations and government agencies involved in the AIDS response.

Themes run for one or two years and are not just specific to World AIDS Day. Campaigning slogans such as ‘Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise’ have been used year round to hold governments accountable for their HIV and AIDS related commitments.

It is such a shame to see that the people around me, people in my environment do not even know the symptoms of AIDS, they do not even know it is contracted, they just believe its a disease for homosexuals(yes still on that train) or for bad people, or even for non-Muslims(i live in a Muslim country, Malaysia and i’m surrounded by Arabs, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and of course Malaysians). It even hurts me more when they stupidly believe only Africans have AIDS( I mean what kind of fucked up ridiculousness is this!!).

Anyway, on this day i hope we an all learn a little bit more about this pandemic and educate as well as protect ourselves.

The Safety Of Our Girls Is In Our Hands..

I lie on my bed with tears in my eyes. I want to cry not just for me, but for the horror that i see in the world. How can it be so hard to be a young girl in the planet that we live in? Has the world not evolved and changed at all!? It pains me.

I read all these articles on the news ( BBC, CNN, Yahoo, MSN live and just general news casters) talking about young girls, as young as 13 years old being killed and called whores because some old perverts decided to rape them, Its a shame how in some parts of the world if a girl is raped she has to hide it for the fear of being shamed and chastised even though it was not her fault.

An example of the terror thats ripping through our communities is the story below.

A father of a teenage girl who was gang-raped by eight men poisoned himself after a video clip of the attack was passed through the family’s village in India.

The 16 year-old girl, from Dabra village in Hisar, north India, was subjected to the horrifying ordeal on September 9, after apparently rebuffing the advances of one of the men.

The Dalit family had tried to keep the assault private, but days later when footage shot by one of the attackers was shown to villagers the girl’s humiliated father, Krishan, killed himself.

This is not the only shocking story of a kind, if i list them out you would feel like killing all the men in the world just so that our little girls can be as safe as imaginable possible. Their innocence is stolen and can never be retrieved again.

Little girls are our future, women make the world a better place, and with all these little girls being tortured, raped, sold into sex slavery, kidnapped, murdered for standing up for their rights, with so many situations clipping their wings, what kind of future do we see for our planet?!

I have a poem from my other blog called Little Girl that explains my fear, and sadness much better than i can articulate here.

Today i suggest you nurture, hug, help just 1 little girl in your life to show them how much they are loved and to put a smile on their face.

Let’s Go Pink!

As some of you might not know, October is breast cancer awareness month!

As The month of October begins, i want all of us to pay attention to the rising numbers  of breast cancer throughout the entire world. A lot of people do not now the symptoms of breast cancer( or that it does not cancer women only as men can also get it), neither do they even know how to conduct self breast cancer checks.

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is a malignant tumor (a collection of cancer cells) arising from the cells of the  breast. Although breast cancer predominantly occurs in women it can also affect men.

Symptoms of breast cancer:

Initially, breast cancer may not cause any symptoms. A lump may be too small for you to feel or to cause any unusual changes you can notice on your own. Often, an abnormal area turns up on a screening mammogram (x-ray of the breast), which leads to further testing.

According to the American Cancer Society, any of the following unusual changes in the breast can be a symptom of breast cancer:

  • swelling of all or part of the breast
  • skin irritation or dimpling
  • breast pain
  • nipple pain or the nipple turning inward
  • redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • a nipple discharge other than breast milk
  • a lump in the underarm area

Even though these are symptoms of breast cancer, they sometimes just turn out to be a less serious condition like a cyst. It is important to go and see a doctor if you see any of these signs.

Facts about breast cancer:

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women.
  • One in every eight women  develops breast cancer.
  • There are many types of breast cancer that differ in their capability of spreading (metastasizing) to other body tissues.
  • The causes of breast cancer are not yet fully known although a number of risk factors have been identified.
  • There are many different types of breast cancer.
  • Breast cancer is diagnosed with physician and self-examination of the breasts, mammography, ultrasound testing, and biopsy.
  • Treatment of breast cancer depends on the type of cancer and its stage (the extent of spread in the body).

Breast Cancer Self Exam

As a woman you need to do the self exam below at least every morning in order to make sure that all is right.

Lets all be aware this month and try to teach as many people as we can!

Lets Get Fun Fit!

Lately i have been trying to get fit and healthy and that means exercising! 😀 I know we all hate it,( i super hate it, always so bored when i try to run) so i have been searching for fun ways to work out and get fit! So i shall share a few here with everyone.

Yoga & pilates

Why yoga you ask.. 🙂

1. Pilates is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work.

2. Regular Pilates practice typically leads to a stronger, leaner body while developing body awareness and having an overall de-stressing effect on most people.

3. Yoga makes you feel better. Practicing the postures, breathing exercises and meditation makes you healthier in body, mind and spirit. Yoga lets you tune in, chill out, shape up — all at the same time.

4.Specifically, research shows that yoga helps manage or control anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, blood pressure, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, headaches, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, stress and other conditions and diseases. What’s more, yoga:

  • Improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina
  • Reduces stress and tension
  • Boosts self esteem
  • Improves concentration and creativity
  • Lowers fat
  • Improves circulation
  • Stimulates the immune system
  • Creates sense of well being and calm.


Join dance classes and zumba

1. Fun and easy to learn.

2. A 60-minute Zumba class incorporates elements of merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, and hip-hop, and features exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. While traditional dance classes use counts to pace steps, Zumba teachers have students repeat a series of movements.

3. Zumba is a total-body cardio and aerobic dance workout. “It’s a moderate form of exercise, so you might not have the intensity you achieve if you went running for the same length of time. But you’re going to get the benefits of a cardio workout. If your goal is to be healthy, work up a sweat, and stimulate your cardio system, it’s perfect

4. Improved Cardiovascular Health~One of the best fitness benefits associated with Zumba dancing is an improvement in your cardiovascular health

5. Weight Loss~as stated above, Zumba is a type of cardiovascular exercise, and research has found that participating in cardiovascular exercise is the best way to lose weight. For best results, try to track how many calories you burn during the workout, and use this to maximize your weight loss. For example, in one pound of fat there is 3500 calories.

6. Improved Coordination~Zumba dancing is also a great way to improve your coordination. Having a good sense of coordination is very important, especially as you age.

7. Improved Mood~Finally, research has found that all types of exercise produce endorphins, which are a type of “feel-good” hormone that are released into the blood stream after you finish exercising. People who suffer from bouts of depression are often encouraged to participate in physical activity in order to benefit from these hormones.

The best things about these workouts is that you can do them from the comfort of your own home. Here is a link to a terrific zumba workout class you can do. 🙂

The man behind the evil..

For weeks now i have debated commenting about this topic.. Avoiding it at all costs, but i just can not stand being silent anymore..

As we all know and have seen a few weeks ago an anti Islam trailer was released and things went from zero to 100 in a matter of hours.. Americans in Arab countries died because of this film, Muslims were insulted because of this film, friendships deteriorated because of it and violence erupted all over the world against anything American was on an all time high.

His crudely made 13-minute video was filmed in California and circulated online under several titles including “Innocence of Muslims.” It portrays the Prophet Mohammad as a fool and a sexual deviant.

The clip sparked a torrent of anti-American unrest in Egypt, Libya and dozens of other Muslim countries over the past two weeks. The violence coincided with an attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Personally i do not really want to comment on the film its self because it was not only respectful, but very cheap looking and obviously ridiculous!

I believe that this man is evil and deserves more punishment than he is getting because he cause a world wide controversy, caused deaths of countless people in many different countries as well as the fall out of many companies( like macdonalds and KFC being burned down in Pakistan). The man behind this evilness was arrested on Thursday in California for allegedly violating his probation, and a federal judge ordered him jailed without bond.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was taken into custody at an undisclosed location by U.S. marshals and brought to court in Los Angeles still wearing his street clothes but handcuffed and shackled at the waist.

Nakoula has been under investigation by probation officials looking into whether he violated the terms of his 2011 release from prison on a bank fraud conviction while making the film, though authorities have said they were not probing the movie itself.

“The court has a lack of trust in the defendant at this time,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal said in refusing Nakoula’s request for bail at a hearing in U.S. District Court.

Crazy News Of The Week…

Serial old women molester on the prowl
A man in a small town in Malaysia is molesting old women late in the evening or early mornings. The said “old women molester” lies in wait for an old woman to pass during said hours then comes from behind them and holds them in a tight embrace they can not escape from for a long while after which he kisses them and gets back on his motorcycle and drives away. This man has done this to over 5 elderly women so far. Prospective victims are advices to keep safe by not walking alone and always being aware of their surroundings.
I don’t know whether to laugh or feel sorry for these women, but I guess I’m feeling both right now. I mean I think at some point this will escalate from hugs and cheek kisses to something more serious like rape or fondling. That said I have to wonder…. WHAT kind of SICK PSYCHOPATHIC BASTARD gets his jollies from harassing old women?!!

The world is becoming a sad, weird place…
