My body, My choice
Heads up, this post is not going to be particularly sexy, in fact it's a bit ranty, so if you're not in the mood you may want to skip this one.
Maybe it's the critical thinking agorist in me but when the government (a small group of people) start telling millions of grown adults who they can and can't spend time with based on a fictional 'pandemic', I have to draw the line as a matter of principle.
This post is not about the ill-advised policies of incompetent politicians and medical 'experts' as I already covered that back in April. Nor is this post about being rebellious or going against the grain for the sake of it, this is about the right to decide how we live our lives on a fundamental level.
Since this whole Corona gate episode started I have seen the media, health experts, sex gurus and celebrities one after the other fall in line and blindly support quarantines, social distancing, mask-wearing and extremely questionable vaccines without so much as a snivel of protest.
It seems many of the obedient disempowered masses are willing to accept whatever version of reality they're able to decipher from the dribbling idiots in number 10 Downing Street during the cringe-inducing daily death stand-up routine.
And on cue, there are savvy crisis vultures on hand to exploit their dismay and package it neatly for consumption as a covid lockdown soap opera in the form of TheSocialDistancingProject.org.
This novel idea (pun intended) is a site created to provide a 'safe space' where people imprisoned in their homes can share their stories of hopeless misery - in the name of charity of course as virtue signalling protocol must be adhered to.
I see many preferring to bury their heads in the sand and employ wishful thinking hoping we will be permitted to resume life like obedient children, but unfortunately, this is not rooted in reality - the truth is that we are being told repeatedly to get used to a new normal.
So get used to less physical contact. Get used to extreme levels of fear and paranoia as we duck and dive out of each other's way. Get used to being told which direction we're allowed to walk in when trying to do our weekly shop. Get used to wearing masks on public transport. Get used to being tracked and traced.
All in the name of public safety from a benevolent government who routinely neglects hundreds of thousands of sick, vulnerable, poor and elderly people as a matter of policy. And while they claim to have our best interest at heart - their actions reveal a very different story.
As I stated back in April before any of the mainstream channels reported on it, the actual effects of Coronavirus itself have barely registered compared to the catastrophic emotional, physical and economical effects of lockdown for people all over the world.
There will be more covid epidemics, more lockdowns, more social distancing, more silence, more tracking, and more loss of our fundamental freedoms. So while most sexperts and influencers are encouraging people to stay safe and adapt, I encourage people to stay free and do not consent to this sterile, anti-human, anti-contact, anti-intimacy, anti-science, anti-commonsense, dictatorial single narrative that is being forced upon the world.
Obviously, I fully support everyone's right to make their own decisions and despite the current trend of shaming, censoring and 'cancelling' those who we disagree with, I will defend your right to do so irrespective of my own views.
But whilst much of the world is busy trying to adjust to a new imposed 'abnormal', I will forever be one of those critical thinkers who believes the individual is sovereign and no government, corporation, scientist, medical professional or false messiah (Gates, Trump, etc.) is going to compel me to blindly follow their rules.
Hence the reason why you won't see me hashtagging 'quarantine lifestyle' pics on social media or rolling out online intimacy courses during lockdown. Go out, get some sun, hug, embrace, live life and stay free.
And for those who may deem this approach irresponsible, I have every confidence that the average individual of sane mind who happens to catch a nasty cold (or Covid) would refrain from spreading their germs, especially around the elderly as they would do as standard - this is long-established common sense.
I'd also like to draw your attention to all the people around the world who have been gathering by the thousands to protest amidst a so-called pandemic. As of writing this post, I have not seen swaths of protesters falling over dead in the street on mass - but I suppose they could all be asymptomatic.
Well what can we do if the government (a small group of people) said so?... Is the cry of the apathetic. Please observe the words of Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers of the United States.
"If a law is unjust, a man (I assume women are included too) is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."
Needless to say, everyone should have a right to decide what is best for them but if there was ever a time in our lives when we needed to promote the importance of unity, love, physical contact, human connection, self-determination and critical thinking, it's now.
Simply stated - I do not consent.
Peace, love and great sex,
