Sisters Cup was so amazing with these people! I’m so grateful to have been able to be a part of this new tradition. It’s about time female sports were celebrated like male sports always are! HT is so proud of you girls! We couldn’t have asked for better individuals to start off this amazing tradition! 💛💚💗#Equality #SistersCup
QAnon fans are applying this same participatory behavior that we have celebrated in fiction fandom to real-world political drama. And why not? The boundaries between politics and entertainment have been collapsing for years. The entire Trump presidency operates like Reality TV, completely divorced from any real stakes or substance.
That’s what makes this all so terrifying. Do these people really believe that Tom Hanks and Hillary Clinton are personally running a massive pedophilia ring? Really??? But consider this: Trump announced at a rally this week that the farmers being harmed by his stupid trade war had told him “we can take it.” No actual farmers said that to him. We all know that. But it’s a little thing, just part of the story we are all interacting with.
The pulsating heart of the QAnon theory is not a lunatic fringe denying the real consequences of a failing presidency. The heart of it is a devoted fan base constructing elaborate theories to make the story more fun and engaging. And if you start from the premise that nothing government does matters, then it’s easy to come along for the ride. There’s no real difference between Hillary Clinton and the Smoke Monster. They’re both just characters on the television.
That’s what alarms me most about the growth of QAnon. It’s not that these people are unhinged and possibly armed. It’s that we’ve lost the capacity to treat civics, governance, and public affairs as though they have actual stakes with actual consequences. The premise of the Trump presidency is that nothing matters, so you should root for your side and heckle the opposing team. He encourages his supporters to treat Democrats and journalists like a rival fan base.

Do you have your special Christmas present? :)
I just read a book by Arlene Blum which entails stories of conflict within climbing & gender in the 70's. I can't even imagine how difficult it was back then to be a woman traveling- & have the passion to climb, be outdoors, and just want equality. Edging into 2019, this is still so very prominent in some countries. World, we have come a very long way, but still have a massive journey to go. There are some days when I have to step back and ask myself "are we in the 1950's?" For a small example: I got locked out of my hotel one night in Nepal as they closed the gate at 10pm. No one was around to open said gate. It was easily climbable. I am over the gate in seconds, but then have another locked door. Eventually a man opens it. He looks at me in disbelief and says "HOW DID YOU GET IN? ONLY MEN CAN CLIMB OVER THE GATE, NOT WOMEN?". I looked at him and said " I am here over the gate, aren't I ?" Many times in travels I have been told I can't do something because I am looked upon possibly as a white western female, weak looking or not capable in their eyes. My goal every single time is to prove them WRONG.
1) "you can't hike this in 5 days, maybe for you 7." -I did it in 4 days. 2)" you can't possibly go over the pass in 7 hours, maybe more like 10. That's local time only." -I did it in 5.5 hours. 3)"You can't do the trails in 15 days, it will take 20. 20 for you is good." - I did it in 11 days.
There should never be a limit given to anyone by someone else of what they are capable of doing, only the self should limit oneself. We are capable of anything we want to be capable of. I do not believe in putting " caps" on people.
I am very grateful that America is further up on the respect, freedom, & equality ladder for women. In several countries, education is even given as priority to men. World, we have to change. We are all equal: Skin color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, rich or poor. Same. What is different is kindness. .

The human rights of every Man, Woman and Child deserve to be universally protected.
We should all be born free and equal, but while we’re living in a world that is terribly lost.
I’d like to share and remind others that
the universal declaration of human rights turns 70yrs today.
And let’s be honest we still havnt got it right!
I hope and visualise more human rights to be protected in the continuing future and for more progress as a nation world wide
We need to get our shift together for equality, peace and human dignity. Human protection Needs to be brought forward with loving action.
