A Word About Gender and Honesty

Time sometimes is the only way to acknowledge past mistakes.

In this case, time made me realize that the reaction that Strawberry Sing had to my words on a few posts a few Years ago, is a logical and plenty understandable one.

Her faith is Her absolute right, nobody can be denied that, no matter how one feels about religion in general.

I can imagine how must be hard to one professing his/her faith, on countries hit by extremists that use the religion as a reason for their odious acts, to not consider any accusation regarding that faith as a personal one, that can endanger his/her own life.

Although i never could even imagine why someone would take my words as a personal attack, i realize that Strawberry Sing reaction for considering them so is the natural one of someone that believes in some that is not the “Official” faith.

So it can be easy to forget that to have faith can be dangerous, mainly if you don’t have none and you do live in a tolerant Country.

At the times i could not understand why she was taking my words as a personal threat for her security, I still can not believe any felt they where intended as personal but to put an end to some that, by my own mistakes, did not get clarified enough, let me reinstate:

My words where never intended to attack at a personal level anyone who believes in one’s faith while respecting the right of others to not profess the same .

My words where never intended to attack at a personal level anyone who believes one’s faith is the only one that has the right to exist and all the others should disappear.

My words where never intended to attack ANY at a personal level, period.

I’m not excusing myself, i felt the topic in question was of bad taste, just a few days after Paris attacks, when French minds where still full of  fear and despair and made a law that as stupid as it was, now is more in use in other Countries (Austria, anyone?), was a natural reaction, to forbid the use of burkas in public beaches.

My posts under that topic tried (lamely i agree) to point that despite the law in itself did not make to much sense and it was a reaction of ignorance and fear rather then the opposite, some who where posting there abide by a faith that is much more restrictive, even if now, after a few Years, we can start to see it opening slowly its doors to progress (Women allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia), regarding Women rights then the French government.

But my replies felt like intending to doom all Muslin and in particular one of name Strawberry Sing.

Again i repeat myself.

My words where never intended to attack at a personal level anyone who believes in one’s faith while respecting the right of others to not profess the same .

My words where never intended to attack at a personal level anyone who believes one’s faith is the only one that has the right to exist and all the others should disappear.

My words where never intended to attack ANY at a personal level, period.

PS, despite my main goal of posting only related topics regarding Second Life, i diverged again, for that my apologies.

 

 

 

Black and white is so easy, a good muslin is a dead one, back with all to their original countries and so on, but real life is not so easy.

Yes i did post that on a reply to someone on pluck, I was putting it on the contest of the topic where it should be seen as a attempt to make the logic all those who wish all muslin dead or back to their home countries to realize that Real Life is not a post on a blog.

To imply that i wish all muslin dead or back to their home countries was not my line of thinking but on a post regarding the Paris attack, to make some see extremism from one side to another is not logical nor reasonable.

Sadly i guess the way i expressed myself lead to thinking i was wishing, literally, what i said.

Not being English my natural language i will not use that argument to excuse myself as i don’t feel shame to say this:

The same ones who wish all muslin dead or all going back to their original countries are no better then those who they accuse.

It is easy to say whatever on a post, real life is not so simple, who can not judge and act against others on the same way they did to you, that will just level all to the same level of ignorance and stupidity.

I don’t run away. I never wish all muslin dead but i do wish all intolerance erased from the face of the Earth, be muslin, catholics, jews, whatever, be whites, blacks, reds, whatever, be straight, gay, lesbian, whatever.

That is my prerogative, to wish the end of all kinds of intolerance from some upon another.

 

 

 

 

High Fidelity-it’s worth a try. — Whooshing The Metaverse

I first tried the High Fidelity worlds in late 2014 and really didn’t like it. Using it was way too technical and there really wasn’t any social aspect to it. On Monday I heard Philip Rosedale’s discussion with Draxtor (https://draxfiles.com/2017/10/15/show-158/ The trick is getting beyond the endlessly repeating introductory music thing don’t really get started […]
