Getting through the new year by reframing your perspective

I'd be lying if I said the last few years have been a cake walk. Truthfully they've been some of the most mentally taxing periods in my life, and I'm sure a lot of people can relate that to 2020 specifically. Last year taught me a lot of things, but I wasn't able to absorb these lessons if I didn't reframe my perspective.

It was very easy for me to feel like I lost all my friends due to politics.
I felt like the career I built as a Twitch streamer was all for nothing.
And that I deserved the nonstop cyberbullying (I mean "Accountability" as the hypocrites say) for having unpopular opinions.

But this was incorrect. None of these were true, actually.

I didn't lose friends. They LEFT because they put their ideological and political beliefs above their friend. According to them, my vote for Trump was enough to stop being my friend because Trump was anti-trans, anti-gay, anti-black, anti-(insert 'oppressed' group here). This is a lie.

If I TRULY valued someone as a friend, I'd make the effort to seek that context and nuance in order to understand WHY they made such a decision.

I would research BEYOND headlines, trending news and the propaganda machines that are mainstream media.

I would be self assured enough to realize when I was letting my feelings overshadow my common sense.

I would also be emotionally mature enough to understand that while friends drift apart, I can still appreciate the moments we've had and the lessons we learned, and that no amount of public slander will erase that.

I didn't lose my career either.

Interestingly enough, when I started on Twitch I had told myself that livestreaming was only a stepping stone for something else. I didn't know what that something else was or what it looked like, but I knew I had more to accomplish in life. I just didn't know that I'd move on so soon, or that I'd be involved in preserving our freedoms from deranged activists that are obsessed with race, sexuality and helping everyone they consider to have less privilege, while knowing damn well their own room is a pigsty. (Read Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life)

When I started to lose my following (over various opinions) I thought that the 3 years of hard work were all for nothing, and that my reputation was ruined because people didn't see a person anymore. They saw Gothix, the Candace Owens wannabee, the anti-black streamer, the transphobe. Not only did it mentally destroy me to hear this every day, but it was also an effective deterrent to keep new viewers from watching my channel. No one want's to watch a transphobe, amirite?

Despite all that, my time on Twitch was NOT for nothing because it prepared me for this politically charged environment that we're currently living through. If I wasn't able to callus my mind, I would have crumbled from all the hate I receive from self-proclaimed, pronoun-in-bio activists, I suspect I wouldn't have had the courage to vocalize opinions that are too problematic for the average safe spacer to explore. (By the way, Trans Women are Men, in case you forgot).

You see how easy it was for me to say that? Effortlessly even. No fear of Trans-activists contacting my sponsors, reporting my account or slapping me with one of the labels they keep in their stockpile. This was one of the biggest takeaway I took from getting cancelled as a Twitch streamer. Once I realized that the money and my reputation meant nothing in comparison to telling the TRUTH, I instantly felt more self-assured and happier overall. When you realize that you're free to say ANYTHING because you know how to overcome the obstacles that manifest as a result, that's power. That's fearlessness.

Finally, I didn't deserve the bullying.

What the experience taught me, however, is that every time someone caves or apologizes for having an opinion (ANY opinion), it slowly conditions society as a whole to be intolerant, reactive and weaker. Imagine how disconnected we've become when opinions equal violence. Or that hate speech (keyword, SPEECH) equals oppression. Or instead of accepting the reality that we share this country (and the planet) with other people, we instead parade ourselves as pompous do-gooders that villainize other humans for not subscribing to our worldview. How incredibly narcissistic.

In any case, my perception on the last couple of years has changed dramatically and I feel a lot happier as a result. So before I end this post, I'd like to share some insight for anyone currently powering through the aftermath of 2020. I promise you, it get's better🙂

1. Accept reality and consider why reality is the way that it is.

  • Example: The reality that Men and Women are different and attempting to alter reality won't change biology but it WILL cause problems. The rhetoric of gender being a social construct has resulted in Trans-women sexually harassing biological women. Because the woke left failed to accept this reality, they've instead opened up a can of worms. Are FEELINGS more important than the actual safety and wellbeing of biological Women? Of course Trans women deserve to feel safe, but the reality is that their transition was a choice, a choice that has it's caveats. And by forcing your choice on other people, you in turn are hurting the acceptance of your own movement.

2. Accept the things you cannot change.

  • Example: Opinions are downstream from feelings and I have no control over how someone feels about me. If people were truly invested in changing someone's opinion, they would be willing to first understand why someone feels the way that they do. Daryl Davis, a black man that convinced over 200 KKK members to give up their robes by simply having conversations with them. This should be a prime example of how to deal with 'hate speech'. Again, we're not entitled to someone else's feelings, but writing them off as a bigot doesn't make the world a less bigoted place. At that point you're just complaining to complain. Yea, we get it, people have opinions. But are you going to do something constructive about it like Daryl did? Of course you're not obligated to change anyone, and you're certainly welcome to rant, but without (appropriate) action, your rants are just...well, rants.

3. Accept that people are still people.

  • Example: To suggest that all conservatives are bigots is to imply that all liberals are kind. To suggest that most Republicans are racist, is to imply that most Democrats are inclusive. To suggest that most black people are marginalized/oppressed/disenfranchised, is to suggest that most black people can't overcome and persevere. You catch the drift? Once you accept that humans are complex, you'll start to evaluate things through rational thinking and not individual bias. Sure, I share the same color with Tyrone, Shaniqua and Malik, but do we share the same interests or experiences? Do we all work equally as hard? Do we all tell the truth? Do we all share the same beliefs? No, of course not. But from the perspective of Critical Race Theory or Equity and Inclusion Training, they see us all as color with one collective experience. Why? Because individuality will always stand in the way of communism.

4. Accept that your responsible for yourself (unless your a toddler, in that case you might need some help)

  • Example: If my mental illness (depression) isn't an excuse for me to physically attack someone or commit a crime, then my hurt feelings aren't an excuse to demand censorship or compliance from others. If I need to see a therapist in order to treat my mental illness, then I need to practice mental toughness to treat my emotional immaturity. If the woke consensus is that 'people of color' lack economic wealth, opportunities or resources despite many defying these odds, then it is the responsibility of said POC to strive towards obtaining the same, or take the responsibility to ASK for help (help, not a short cut). If humans have proven themselves to overcome, then we should motivate others to follow suite. Call it survivorship bias if you must (this is an actual thing, apparently), but I ask you: Do you want a Coach that pushes you to persevere and improve? Or one that encourages complacency by excusing you from your failures?

If I didn't take ownership of my feelings, I wouldn't have been able to desensitize myself from 'hate speech'. A necessary trait for those who are prepared to speak out against Government Tyranny. The slandering hasn't stop, and people still try to discredit me. What changed is how I deal with these attempts, and all it took was reframing my perspective🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'll be the first to admit that there was a time when I perceived thanksgiving as a chore, a day when estranged family members would get together and pretend to like each other for one day out of the year.

There were many times where I'd storm out of the dinning room over a disagreement and It got to the point where I needed to take a few puffs of weed to even tolerate being in the same room with family.

Most dinners would end up with someone crying, usually me, only to wait a year and do it all over again.

To me, thanksgiving was always a matter of empty tradition and not a matter of thankfulness.

I hated it and I hated being forced in a room with people I didn't like, that was until, I was invited to something called friendsgiving.

A day where friends could come together to eat, drink and be in the company of other people who shared similar stories of discontent with family functions.

Although it was great to hangout with friends, something about the holiday just didn't feel the same, which is ...

Gun control won't stop mass shootings

In 1989, China's Government declared martial law and sent over 200,000 troops to Tiananmen Square to slaughter thousands of unarmed protestors.

Keyword, unarmed.

The recent school shooting in Texas is a tragedy, but the calls to impose more gun control isn't addressing the root cause of the problem.

The same politicians who want to enact strict gun policy in the name of safety, are the same ones that:

  • Think it's normal for impressionable kids to take puberty blockers because they 'feel' like the opposite sex.

  • Ignore the rise in suicides that have resulted from COVID lockdowns, drug overdoses and teaching kids about gender identity and sexuality in school.

  • Blame gang violence and crime on white supremacy or racism

If these people truly cared about preventing mass shootings, they would start by addressing the spiritual degeneracy that leads people to commit acts of violence in the first place.

Better yet, if safety is a legitimate concern, then why aren't these politicians ...

Diversity Educators are Propaganda Pushers (w/audio)

What: Destabilization + Exploitation
Why: Centralize the publics focus
How: Pandemic + Black Lives Matter + LGBTQIA+


DESTABILISATION

COVID Lockdowns (work/learn from home) ensured a large majority of the population would be at home.

The urgency that the pandemic created, ensured most people would be glued to their TV or phone to stay informed.

The BLM incident started almost immediately when lockdowns began. Most people knew about the riots because they were already consumed with pandemic related coverage. At this point the media & politicians are fluctuating between BLM coverage and the pandemic.

The fear of COVID gave people a reason to stay informed via news/social media, the BLM coverage exploited this fear. For example, many media outlets proclaimed that blacks are more at risk for contracting COVID due to systemic racism, the CDC Director declared racism a serious public health threat, etc.


EXPOLOITATION OF BLACK PEOPLE

Black Lives Matter (BLM) was a violent movement that resulted in the death of innocent ...

Representation doesn't matter (w/ audio)

You read that correctly.

As a black and Hispanic woman (that's not my "identity", it's just what I am), I've never once felt the urge to seek outside validation from the media.

Why? Because my mother raised me to see myself as a human being, and not as a color or a gender.

Now that I'm a Christian, I can also say that seeking the approval of God is far more important than seeking the approval of other human beings. Of course, that's a conversation that most people aren't interested in having, but thankfully, religion isn't necessary to argue against shallow and narcissistic ideas.

What is the purpose of representation?

Some people might say that it's to make certain groups of feel more welcomed in a particular industry. "How can anyone strive to do ___(blank) when they don't see people who look like them?"

Go pull up the Brave browser (or Google, assuming you enjoy the intrusiveness of big tech), and search one of the following:

"black people in movies"
"gay people in politics"
"trans people in television"...

SURVEY TIME:

if you identify as LGB or trans, do you have the expectation for society to accept your sexuality/transition as “normal?”

In other words, must I accept, encourage or see your behavior as normal for us to be friends?

I may be exploring this in a video soon.

Bringing new life to a style dominated by death
My new merch line just dropped!

If you're like me and enjoy goth, punk, or alternative clothing, you might notice a consistent pattern in its imagery and marketing. Or, it's possible that you've never even given it a thought because you're so enamored by "how cool" the styles are. (I can relate)

Just this past year, I had to throw out half my wardrobe because I felt so ashamed that I had essentially become a walking billboard for death without even realizing it. A lot of the stuff I wore had patterns and slogans printed on it that depicted drugs, demons, violence, etc. and it got me thinking:

"Why are these symbols synonymous with that style of clothing?"  

Come to think of it, this realization probably explains why first-time viewers of my channel assume I'm crazy just based on my haircut, nose ring, or stage name. 

I don't believe alternative clothing should be dominated by degeneracy or the occult, nor do I think followers of Christ should force themselves to adapt styles that are more palatable to other believers.

With that in mind, I pitched an idea to the guys at No_System who hosted my previous merch line. I told them that I wanted to create a series of designs that represented different passages in The Bible, hoping to bring new life, to a style that's dominated by death. And as someone who recently became a believer this past year, these designs meant more to me than just a t-shirt.

Even if you don't consider yourself religious, I hope you'll still give some thought to the passages I selected and consider why darkness and the occult are so glamorized, in a society that constantly accuses followers of Jesus for pushing their beliefs onto others. 

And just so you know, I currently have a BLACK FRIDAY sale going on right now! Visit http://NoSysKnows.com/Gothix to get 25% off hats and hoodies, 35% off t-shirts, and 35% off stickers. Plus, free shipping on all orders over $50 🫶

Wearing my NEW worthless idols (Karl Marx) shirt. 

WORTHLESS IDOLS (KARL MARX)

Psalm 96:5 - "For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens."

Karl Marx, the author of "The Communist Manifesto" made it his life's mission to "dethrone God and destroy capitalism." Marx dreamt of a communist revolution where religion would be abolished because he believed workers wouldn't need it if they found happiness in being equals. What Marx didn't understand was that human beings are created to worship, and when we reject God, we'll inevitably fill that void with something or someone else. Psalm 96:5 tells us that these worthless substitutes won't matter when our time on earth is up. 
 
SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING

SHEEP IN WOLVES CLOTHING

Romans 12:2 - "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
 
Culture is constantly changing, but change isn't always good. What was once unthinkable yesterday, is now socially acceptable today. This is why in Romans 12:2, we're urged to reject culture and abandon the chase of pleasure, possessions, and status—and instead, allow God to change us from the inside out.
 
GUARD YOUR HEART AND MIND

 GUARD YOUR HEART AND MIND

Philippians 4:7 - "And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Every day our lives are inundated with junk, and we often accept it wholesale by scrolling endlessly on social media or watching the news in hopes we'll hear something bad.  Stop that! Cling to what's good and rejecting the trash.

Socialism is a religion for the lazy
Why good ideas don't always lead to good outcomes
Socialism, Marxism and Communism are ideologies that inevitably create more poverty, homelessness and despair than we could ever image while living under Capitalism. Which is ironic, because the entire premise of these ideas is that it's more humane than living under a capitalist system.
 
I can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to eliminate poverty and world hunger, trust me, It pains my heart to see people living on the streets, but socialism is counter initiative to human rights. 
 
Karl Marx, the man who wrote the Communist Manifesto, was not only a philosopher but a revolutionary socialist. Did I mention he was also broke? I suppose it should have been a warning sign that a broke socialist was criticising capitalism, but I digress. 
 
Marx never acquired a regular occupation or a dependable means of livelihood. He was bankrupt, always in debt and with half of his household goods stored away at the pawnshop. In fact, the co-author of the Communist Manifesto, Friedrich Engels, would give Marx thousands upon thousands of dollars, which would inevitably "melt away in his fingers like snow". (See The Naked Communist, page 38-42)
 
Marx was also an athiest who believed religion was the opium of the people, a sigh of the oppressed creature and the heart of a heartless world.
 
 
It's no wonder why you'll be pressed to find a socialist/Marxist who follows Jesus. Interestingly enough, if they DID follow Jesus as opposed to the writings of Marx, they wouldn't be socialists at all!
 
So for this post, I'd like to explore one section of The Bible, which succinctly explains why Marx "hated all Gods" and to help us understand why communist societies (like the Chinese government) do not allow religious freedom and persecute those who hold beliefs that challenge the communist party agenda. 
 

Warning Against Idleness 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15

"Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you keep away from any brother who is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us."
 
  • I think it's reasonable to say that we're are all products of our environment. Some might be more susceptible to influence than others, but generally speaking, the more time we spend with positive and ambitious people, the more we'll begin to mirror their behavior. Likewise, if we're always around drunk, lazy, party animals, there's a high likelihood we'll become a sloppy degenerate. Proverbs 13:20 explains this perfectly: "Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm."
"For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us, because we were not idle when we were with you, nor did we eat anyone's bread without paying for it, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you."
 
  • Why do you think doctors recommend exercise or learning a new skill to help combat depression? And why do some people choose to hang outside liquor or convenience stores for hours at a time? It's because they lack purpose. When depression begins to take hold of your mind, its harder to fight it off when you don't have something productive to focus on. Likewise, we can assume those who stand idle on street corners all day are probably up to no good. I know the typical response to this something to the effect of "well, maybe their poor! Maybe their homeless!". This part of scripture explains the importance of working for your food because it helps encourage perseverance and duty, which you wont learn by always expecting others to help you. 
"It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate."
 
  • There's a famous quote that goes: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." This concept is lost on many social justice ideologues when they infantilize the very people they're trying to help. If we're capable of achieving something positive in our lives, then the next rational step should be to lead by example as opposed to treating others like victims. 
"For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies.  Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living."
 
  • Think of all the angry 'online activists' who spend their entire day online trying to "cancel" or shame a stranger for something they thought was wrong. These people are called busybodies. They waste all their time meddling into the affairs of others to "hold them accountable", instead of taking necessary steps to lead by example.

Additionally, there's a huge difference between not being ABLE to work, versus not WILLING. For those who are truly incapable of working (though, I believe that number is much smaller than people think) God commands us to be generous, kind and forgiving. But he also commands us to  build others up according to their needs (Ephesians 4:29) and sometimes people NEED encouragement so they can be inspired to practice self control, perseverance and discipline. 

 

"As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good."
 
  • Pretty self explanatory. 

In case you haven't figured it out, God is NOT compatable with socialisim, and the Bible has an abundance of other sections that can be used to challenge marxisim, communism and social justice ideas (gender theory, anti-racism, etc.), which ironically, are all forms of religion in their own right. 

Therefore, the world should be very cautious to not blindly condemn religion as "a cult" without fully understanding what that particular belief system teaches. It's becoming more common for Americans in particular to write off the Christian Doctrine because, for most people, it's extremely difficult to believe in something they don't see or recognize it's importance when it challenges the very nature of their own beliefs. 
 
But If we're not careful, we're going to end up living in a society that normalizes hostility, bitterness and prejudice as opposed to kindness, forgiveness and love. I can assure you that while the world won't ever be perfect, following Karl Marx will certainly make it worse.
