Out of 1000 Rapes - Sad Statistics
Amisja comments on Oct 4, 2018:
I post here as a woman from the UK and surprisingly the statistics are very similar. I am grateful you made this group Sassygirl and grateful to all the brave women who posted. I was really disturbed by the Dr. Ford thing. It shocked me a lot. I couldn't understand why. My first dissertation was on rape and I have read 100's of court transcripts. Why was this one so troubling? Then I realised...it was me. I was the shy geeky ginger girl trying to fit in. Trying a beer that I didn't really like. I was pushed in a room and I heard a guy outside shout to another one...'hoy wait your turn'. It was awful and the guys were all handsome and sucessful and I was told I was lucky they paid attention to the shy chubby ginger. I believe her because no one on earth would ever want to relive that for fun. I remember laughing too. I wish I could hug her, thousands of miles away we probably shared the identical experience virtually at the same time. I haven't ever told this before
Do you oppose the wearing of Burqa's Why?
Amisja comments on Oct 4, 2018:
Burqas are unusual in Western countries, However you may see a woman wearing a Niqab or a hijab. I live in a town which is about 15% Muslim, some ladies wear hijabs a few wear niqabs and loads are unveiled. Yesterday I was driving down a street and I saw a lady in the most beautiful outfit and hijab, she looked amazing (I sew a lot of clothes for Muslim ladies). Lower down the street was a British girl (may be 15) in what you guys call 'Daisy Duke' shorts and a crop top...on a school day! To me that is far more offensive. That and some of the other low lifes round me who think going to the supermarket in a onesie at 3pm is acceptable! The other strange notion is the idea that women are 'forced' into the veil. This is not true. In fact research suggests that British born muslim men particularly do not care. In fact in my experience they tend to be the most vocal in their objection. The veil is not religious really, in fact some sects of Judaism also wear veils and headscarves were ubiquitous in my part of England amongst mill girls. It is cultural and it came from a cultural norm that maintained that high status women and women in hareems be veiled as only one man could look at them. The tradition continues as young women wanted to follow the high status women. The bible and the Q'oran are rather ambiguous on this, both suggesting modesty but neither really openly discussing a veil. To me personally its cool. It did freak me out when a pair of eyes greeted me from a vision in black and said, "hiya Jayne". When I looked confused she lifted up her veil and said "its me Robina"!! We both had a good life. Its only a veil live and let live.

Amisja comments on Oct 4, 2018:
His speech was offensive and incorrect. Just the day after a Canadian woman was granted the Nobel prize for science. https://www.washingtonpost.com/science/2018/10/02/nobel-prize-physics-awarded-tools-made-light-first-woman-years-honored/ What you fail to understand is that for women of my generation and older, we were actively discouraged from entering sciences. It was consider 'too taxing' for women's brains. I remember distinctly being advised against becoming an archelogist and taking up nursing as a more suitable profession for girls. Things are changing and so they should. In cases were an uneven hand is given to one gender over another or one race over an other, it is only proper that steps are taken to redress this balance. Women have ALWAYS been involved in science, from Ada Lovelace to Rosalind Franklin and beyond. Its just they were often excluded from recognition. I have 2 BScs and an MSc and my doctorate will be science based (ask for details if interested). It is still unusual though. Rather than bashing the universities stand on this issue, why not encourage the young women you know to consider careers in science??

[yahoo.com] More Than 500 Law Professors Condemn Kavanaugh For Poor Temperament
Amisja comments on Oct 3, 2018:
You know I spent 7 years living in USA (my boys are actually American) and my biggest takeaway from the vast majority of people I met was how forgiving and big hearted most Americans are. If that man had said, " I can not believe that boy was me, but it was. I am deeply ashamed of my adolescent self and I bed forgiveness from Dr. Ford and all the other women in my life. I intend to spend the rest of my life working to right this wrong and making it my most sincere endeavour to work for my fellow Americans". Then I bet you guys would have opened your heart to him and allowed him to have another chance. But he didn't he squirmed and threw a tantrum..sounded mean hearted and cold.

Didn't work. Motorway was chocca, I was late for the class, bumped my car, couldn't find parking, the new uni IT systems didn't work, central time tabling allocated a really horrible classroom for my lesson, students were fed up, didn't have time to print off my lecture notes (everything crossed I remember all the right answers), muggled through the lesson, got back to my office to prep for my masters students only to discover I'd been stepped down, decided best thing would be to come home, lay down and fell asleep! I still feel ill and not prepared for tomorrow's lessons either. (I need a week off!)

Oh I am going to piss off a lot of you but here goes...remembering I am British but I cannot abide the almost reverrant adoration given to people in the armed forces.

You are not a hero, you are a rich man's pawn. You are not fighting for rights or freedoms, you are fighting to protect rich men's investment. Help the Heroes!!! My colleagues working on A&E in busy towns on a saturday night are heroes, the ones stemming stab wound bleeds or fighting to save someone's life who has taken their 50th O/D that week....they are risking their own life and wellbeing to save others. .

Amisja comments on Sep 29, 2018:
I tried to explain to my partner how often men are the biggest threat to women. One entire half of the population of the human race is a potential threat to the other (and themselves...yeah, I know). Murder of women by women is relatively unusual. Last week a group of 5 young men surrounded me on a street corner and asked me the way to the library. New students from another country, culturally unaware but even as an older woman I momentarily felt terrified. It took too long to explain, they wouldn't go and why did they circle me? I am usually a confident, outspoken person but just at that moment I was a teenage girl fighting off unwanted advances. I think men need to really understand that maleness, strength and confidence, although attractive are also potentially threatening. Simply put no always means no.

Amisja comments on Sep 8, 2018:
This post sounded so much more pitiful than was intended. Certainly not meant as a 'woe is me'. I just got an email from a student at 10pm with alsorts of personal problems. She ended her email with 'I bet you are missing us' (they are all out of clinical placement). It really hit home, like all these people really believe I live for their benefit. My Dad calls me in the middle of work with demands, my sons constantly need something. My partner just lives in a world of muddles and I am pushed from pillar to post. My brother has an aquired brain injury so he is the only one who really needs help. Colleagues turn up with dress making disasters and ask for me to repair stuff. (I'll get you a bottle of wine Jayne!) I agree with Tillia we all need to down tools, its just so hard sometimes. I thought I needed a prince Charming to take me away from all this but what I actually need is a 30 hour day, four brains and eight arms!

Amisja comments on Aug 30, 2018:
In the UK a nurse was disciplined for wearing a cross. In both my jobs, clinical practice and as a university lecturer, religion is not considered appropriate or helpful. In fact I know only one lecturer who describes herself as a Christian and she swears like a trooper! One lecturer who is muslim who is also very irreverent. Discussing religion with students outside of a purely educational setting would probably get the person sacked. I have two of my home group students who are Christian (out of 18), one guy who is ('loosely' his words) hindu, one pagan and the rest are non-religious. I only know this because we briefly discussed it during an end of life session. In fact it is such a non issue, its a little bit odd if someone states they are religious.
Anyone have advice on how to come out ofthe atheist closet? I've been skeptical of the religion I ...

He developed Sepsis that did not respond to antibiotics but somehow he's hung on. (Thank you amazing NHS). Now he just needs to gain weight which is a challenge.
