Let’s talk about European Wars


Europe has always been a warring nation throughout its existence.

TLanette

Yesterday, a journalist/talking-head/whatever had the nerve to compare the war in the Ukraine with conflicts in other countries. While carefully picking his code words, this man tried to say that this war was in a more civilized and developed place because it was in Europe. I shouldn’t be surprised by blatant racism even during times of war, but I am.

What this reporter failed to share is the long extensive history about the relationship between European countries and the continent’s interaction with the rest of the world. Europe has always been a warring nation throughout its existence.

No one saw it coming. No one thought it could be done. But here’s the U.S., number one consistently in all 3 major COVID Categories, New Daily …

U.S. “Exiting” COVID Global Pandemic with a Bang and a Boom

As I lay in bed still dealing with muscle aches from Covid19 (12/26/2021), all I can do is shake my head. This blog post came up at the right time. My symptoms were minimal (fatigue and muscle pain) since I was vaccinated and boostered. Yet, I’m now facing Long Covid and worried about its impact on my heart condition.

Eve & Suki: The Relationship We Need (EastEnders)

Now it’s time for EastEnders to focus on their LBGTQ ladies. Let’s start with Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) and Suki Kaur Panesar (Balvinder Sopal).

I’ve been waiting for this moment since the Pride episode two years ago. Two years we’ve waited for this moment. Now it’s time for EastEnders to focus on their LBGTQ ladies. Let’s start with Eve Unwin (Heather Peace) and Suki Kaur Panesar (Balvinder Sopal).

Since that first Pride episode the focus has been on Ben and Callum, the show’s second gay male couple. We even saw the show’s second gay male marriage a year after the episode. During this time we’ve only seen bits and pieces of the relationships between Ash & Iqra, Iqra & Mila, and Bernie & Mollie. Their screen time and storyline focus was minimal compared to Ben and Callum. Now that we will have a new EP this is the perfect time to focus on the ladies’ relationships.

Toxic Fandom, Part 2: Ballum (EastEnders)

My point is the overall EastEnders fandom is respectful and open to discussion about characters and storylines. Unfortunately, the Ballum fandom accuses EE fans of homophobia if they do not agree with their view of Ben and Callum’s relationship.

I’ve talked about toxic fans before with EastEnders. However, now that Ballum (Ben & Callum) are having actual real relationship issues, the Ballum fandom dragons are out for blood. That means long term EE fans (before Callum and knowing Ben from the beginning) are being harassed. I was accused of being homophobic against gay males because I had the nerve to hold a character, Ben Mitchell, accountable for his actions even though he was dealing with a mental health crisis. 😳 Just to be clear, this random told me to STFU because they didn’t like what I said and called me homophobic.
