It’s in the shadows…

Admittedly… I can be an irascible old bitch… in fact fairly frequently as I’m dealing with pain and the phrase bear with a sore head pales significantly next to bitch with a bad back…

Mostly I manage to filter out life’s petty annoyances and override my urge to bite but then there’s the one or two or a few odd sentences that hit my ears like fingernails being dragged across a blackboard…

Though to be honest, it’s not the actual words but more the sentiment expressed behind them that floats across… or the ridiculous assumptions that accompany them…

For example… I’ve been vegetarian for many years… now due to the line of work I’m in, people make all sorts of assumptions as to why that is… they attribute me with noble intentions or some kind of ethics and various permutations and combinations of beliefs pulled out of their dippy hippy minds… In actual fact… I’m vegetarian because…I just don’t like meat that much… I live with a vegetarian who also just doesn’t like meat that much… and in my mind… if you’re to eat meat then you should do it with vigour and relish and fill all of your senses… it should be savoured like sex on a plate! after all… a creature died to feed you, so pay it a tribute!

And some people find my attitude on that quite shocking…

More interestingly is something that pops up now and then when I express an opinion on something and it’s not warm and fluffy and then I get somebody ask me – how can you say that? I thought you were a vegetarian?

WHAT???? Where’s the fuzzy logic in that… you don’t eat meat, so therefore you must also be x. y. z etc etc etc…

And when I have that kind of mind attempt to back me into a corner then I respond with…

I’m vegetarian… I will kill you if you push me far enough but please be comforted by knowing that I will not eat your corpse…

Then there’s the word ‘spiritual’… in fact don’t even get me started on that one… this blog ain’t big enough for me to dissect WTF that is supposed to mean… briefly put… if you have to go around declaring yourself, then chances are…mmm… I’ll leave you to fill in the … however you like…

Then there’s the anti-science brigade that cross my path and don’t realise that if there is one thing that I am qualified in it is Science… and when I say qualified I mean a recognised BSc as opposed to those vague claims that fly around about being internationally known, accredited, endorsed… or one I find interesting – studied at… or my favourite… attended… (because I have attended many things that I’ve slept through…) where was I? Oh yes… anti-sci fact folk who expect me to hop on board with their conspiracy theories that they’ve sucked up from the internet whilst accusing other folks of being sheeple… and really… I’m sorry… but your lack of education, critical thinking skills etc just means that you have no understanding of this subject… which is not the same as proving that it is a conspiracy…

But worse… much worse than this…

LIKE MINDED

No! NO! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Just get the eff out of Dodge!!!

Please do not take one tiny facet of my personality as a full on confirmation that my every bloody thought tallies exactly with yours…

Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Stop it you armchair gurus with your dime store divinity…

And oh… the new wave of self-annointed Shamans…always with the need to be constantly banging their drums…

(N.B. ‘Out in the field Shamans’ and Shamanistic practitioners, I hold in very high esteem… )

NO… stop it! I don’t agree with you on everything! I don’t WANT to agree with you on everything! NOR do I want or need you to agree with me on everything or even anything…

I like people I can rub antlers with…

People who can verbally toss things about without getting all butt hurt…

I don’t want to sit with the like minded and their ilk…

I’d much rather run with the elk…
