NO means NO


     When you tell someone no it should mean no. You can tell anybody no or turn down any situation. No should mean no not yes. Yes should mean yes not no. Why can't people comprehend that?

 

     It does not mean that the person has that some sort of unspoken permission in doing something that is not needed or against the other person's will.

 

     For example, if a man is trying to get lucky and is not taking no for answer. So, he picks a random girl that may be willing to give some time to give to the desperate guy but she decides things are not exactly normal about this guy and a lot of red flags are up and waving around. She tells him no numerous times and he isn't taking no for an answer. She leaves the location and he follows her and decides that she "deserves it" and rapes her. He says she "deserves it" because of her outfit. She didn't "deserve it" because she clearly told him no and her outfit was not skimpy and was covering the majority of her skin, she wasn't acting desperate as he was, and was not being flirty or that interested in the people hitting on her. Was she a victim in this case? Yes, she was, she never asked for this to happen for her. The guy got away after he was finished with his task.


This is probably a bad example but was trying to make a point

 

     This also can go along with so many other situations as well. If a person doesn't feel comfortable with a situation or being around a person or group of people. It is OK to say NO. Just follow your intuition and instinct or that gut feeling. You are the one who is in control of your own life. Things will fall into place and you will find your true self and figure out who your true friends are.

 

Remember to love one another and treat others the way you want to be treated.

 

Remember if you don't feel comfortable with a person or situation. Do what feels right and say no or leave.

Unnecessary Censorships vs Culture Norms & Media


Seems like in every culture there are ways that we are influenced like censorships or censoring.

In each culture, we are brought up in a certain way and uniquely different. For example, some are brought up in a fast-paced environment, religious stand point, minimalistic, independently, group efforts, and etc.

For example, nudity. Nudity is an al naturale part of life and we deal with it on an everyday part of life. But when it comes to the tv or some media news outlets, the intimate areas of the body maybe blurred out depending on where you are at in the world. But, why be censored out when it’s an al naturale part of the human race? So, would it be an unnecessary censorship across all cultures?

Another example is foul language. Foul language maybe a part of the everyday talk for some. But why censor all foul language especially when it comes to media? Is it really that offensive? Maybe for some I suppose….

The last example I have would be the subject of the deceased. For example if the deceased have died in some horrific instance and the media would most likely not show the pictures/videos, and/or blacken or fuzz out the worst parts of the photo or video. But death is a natural thing. But, things maybe to upsetting to see, the loved ones of the deceased may not want the information leaked and want the person to be remembered in a better manner, and/or the “culture norms” of that country. Yea, not all deaths are horrific but some can be more on the peaceful side.

So, what else would you include in the unnecessary censorship?
