Watching things like the Hulu Original series, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is really scary since it’s way too close to what could be reality.
My favorite kind of horror show, by the way, because it’s something that could really happen ANYWHERE. What’s scarier than that? Not much in my opinion.
If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommenf it, but definitely start from the beginning and try not to find out too much on what it’s all about before watching. If you don’t get hooked by the first episode then it’s probably not for you.
(Note: I wouldn’t recommend children watching! It will objectify women in severely disturbing ways and definitely contains mature subject matter)
It’s a Hulu Original series that won a few well deserved awards. It’s about ...well...putting women back in their place, so to speak. Whether they want it or not. It’s awful, unthinkable and sadly a reality that I believe too many people wouldn’t mind. Not most women probably... hopefully?
The worst part is that a lot of “rules” (laws?) from the show are actually occurring today. Just not all in one place. I really hope not anyway.
I bring this up because I’m currently going through a few “new laws” that are making me feel cornered, helpless, and just plain powerless to change.
I love life and as difficult as it’s been for me lately, I always choose life, yet I feel I’m being forced to rethink that and it scares me. If it were up to me, I’d live forever or at least as long as I can appreciate all my life has to offer somehow.
I wake up EVERY DAY and find ANYTHING to hold on to. Anything that will make me say “okay THAT is enough to live for!”.
However, others keep challenging that and making each day more difficult.
I wish I knew.
So if you have a choice and you can live well enough, than do it. Be safe, be happy and fight until you can’t.
You never know when your choices will be taken from you.
I’ve never really worried unless I had to. It makes life less stressful.
Unfortunately you can’t always control everything or ignore the signs that keep smacking you in the face.
I really did.
Life just wouldn’t allow it any longer.
The whole staus of the world scares me lately.
Actually no that’s not true, it’s scared me ever since Trump ran for president and it felt like I was the only one who KNEW he would win.
I so wished I was wrong.
I honestly never understood REAL hatred, racism, greed, intolerance and ignorance UNTIL Trump took office.
It felt like he all but abolished common decency while making the most unacceptable ugliness in people seem, not just okay, but almost commendable.
What is happening?
Is this the new “normal” now? Where we praise inquality and injustice?
We celebrate intolerance and give power to hypocrites?
If so, than that is just SAD and we probably won’t be around long.
I don’t know Who said these quotes exactly, but I like them
