You Slap Me, I Slap You!!!

Ok, after watching the little clip on youtube, reading the comments and then doing some thinking while drinking my Jasmine Green tea…hhhmmmm….my imagination got the better of me. Is it OK to just slap someone because you’re pissed off at that person? No, right? Is it OK to slap someone even if you’re recording a reality TV show? Not unless it’s written into the script and the man was expecting it, right? Whether you’re a man or a woman, you’re not supposed to use violence against another person. True, true. But men are supposed to…I dunno…never slap a woman wan, rite? It takes more strength to hold back a slap than to deliver one. Hence, a man should never slap a woman, right? For once, I am struggling in a fog of wordlessness trying to find the right words to say this so that I don’t sound sexist. Erm….er… In reality, if a woman delivered the first slap, perhaps…PERHAPS it’s in all fairness and equality that she gets the same slap back. But let’s take into account that men are generally stronger than women. In order to be fair, the man must hold back some of his strength so that he hits the woman using the same strength, right? Huh? In reality, when one is angry, one cannot really control one’s strength, so, which brings us back to the fact that men probably shouldn’t slap a woman. Even if she delivered the first slap first? But that doesn’t sound quite fair, does it? In my personal opinion, even if a woman slaps a man first, this is what should happen. Woman: You’re a stupid MF *slaps* Anger flashes across the face of the man. His face clouds over and he widens his eyes with threat. Man: That was uncalled for. I don’t want to do anything I will regret, so I am going to go have beer with Andy at the pub, don’t wait for me. I probably need a lot…A LOT of time to think about what you just did. Woman: Slap me lah! Slap me, slap me, slap!!! The woman pulls the man shirt sleeves. He raises his hands into the air but manages to stop himself just in time. The woman stares dumb-founded at his raised hands. Man: I said….I am going out. Don’t wait up for me. But what if the people in the picture are people acting things out in a reality show…how? Woman: Why don’t you just fuck off? Man: You go Woman: (slap) Man licks the insides of his cheeks. He's mad-ass angry now but he controls his anger. His fists clenches and his jaw muscle twicthes. A deep intake of breath later, he says.... Man: You just stepped over the line. Before I slam your effing head against the fooking wall over there, I quit this stupid darn farking show. The ‘slapped’ walks off the show and into the sunset to his waiting horse called Kaboosh. *playing Marlboro song*

Well if a woman hits a man as hard as she can, then guess what? A man should be able to hit her as hard as he can.

I'm so sick of the whole penis vs vaginas debate. And you know what, that's EXACTLY what it comes down to. If you have a vagina, you can get away with slapping someone with a penis and not get slapped back.

Well, last time I checked, I'm not fighting with my genitalia. I'm fighting with me hands. You've got two hands, I've got two hands. We're equal.

And no, I am not stronger than a woman....another misconception that most have. I have no muscles on these arms.

But I can tell you one thing. If a woman lays a hand on me, this fag will lay on her. She wants to act like a bitch to me, well, she ain't seen bitch until she sees this queen pissed off!

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

The Short Hair Scandal

Except for a short period of my life where I donned long hair (which was mightily unkempt), I've mostly sported the short or bob hair cut. I just didn't have the time to deal with the straightening, curling, or whatever it is that women are required to do before they get out of the house to buy a bag of salt from the grocery store.  I've wanted to write something about how An San, a rising archer from South Korea,  got flack for sporting a short crop . Despite her performing with near stellar perfection.  How is having short hair a sign or declaration of anti-men?  Are men who wear their hair long anti-women, then? I don't even know where this is going because it doesn't even make sense. LOL. Short hair is simply easier to manage. The flip side is that if you have to attend a gala or a big event, short hair is even harder to style! PLUS, some women just look fantabulous with a short crop!
