    Everyone complaining about how “we shouldn’t bring race into this” and how “women are making it a competition/political” should take a good hard look at their own biases. And, not to put too fine a point on it, kindly sod off.

    A lot of this smacks of “All lives matter”.

    I’ll throw that back at you: ALL LIVES MATTER. Including ours.

    People are pretty fucking quick to forget about that. People are pretty quick to get on their high horse and insist that it’s become a “racial thing”.

    No. No way. It hasn’t suddenly become a racial thing. You’ve just been given new evidence and you don’t like it. It’s been racial all along. Gabby’s case is the timer that sheds the light on a much, much more systemic and ongoing problem (MWWS).

    If I, gods forbid and touch wood, got my throat slit tomorrow night, I know for a fact I wouldn’t get as much media attention as Jill Bloggs, white woman.

    This is commodification at its finest, my friends.

    With all due respect to Gabby and her loved ones, WOC have been commodified for far too long. When a white woman goes missing, everyone talks about it, spreads the word and understands. All of us have empathised, understood, stood together in solidarity. Yet how many of you white women reading this would do the same for us? How many of you have an unconscious bias, or privilege, towards the stories you hear about every single day? To those who look like you? These are implicit messages we are being sent every day - that we are worth less.

    We are not commodifying Gabby’s case - we are taking her overspill of light and shining it on others too. It is a net positive - raise awareness of WOC who are victims of domestic violence and you help prevent future victims.

    Using her case to help raise awareness of other cases is the opposite of women creating divides. It’s women of colour (and white women) breaking down the barriers that currently prevent us WOC from accessing the sorts of stratospheric publicity that William Tyrrell, or Daniel Morcombe, or Jacob Wetterling, all received. It’s making us more visible and more equal in the eyes of the law and of the news anchors and mainstream media outlets that choose which cases to report. It’s sending them the message that we exist and we are worth reporting on.

    I am tired of seeing primarily white missing persons in the media. Our lives have value. All lives have value. We have been told we are second-, third-, fourth-class citizens for time out of mind. While the media exposure of missing/murdered WOC/POC has improved vastly over the years, we have a long way to go.

    Please remember that when you accuse others of tearing down Gabby, or of taking Gabby’s case and using it for their own agenda. No one has an agenda here. It’s not just her gain, it’s everyone’s.

    For the record, I do have some inkling of how Gabby’s family must be feeling with all this discourse around her death. Gabby was a victim of horrific DV, as so many are. But Gabby’s family was able to find closure for her. So many families are not. This does not invalidate Gabby’s story or those of other women who are killed as a result of DV. It does not make Gabby any less a victim. And it absolutely does not make her the object of blame.

    But it does ensure a silver lining: her case can be used to help others.

    Rodney Alcala (the Dating Game Killer) is Jack Walten (the walten files)

    Rodney Alcala was convicted of six murders, but may have murdered as many as 130 people (mostly young women).  He appeared on (and won) the Dating Game, but the once the lady met him in person she was ‘creeped out’ and refused to go on the date.  He died in prison in July of this year.

    Am I delusional or is that literally the same picture?

    #I tried to post this to reddit #and they called it 'low effort content' and blocked it #I'm mad because I was really excited #the walten files #game theory #or is that film theory? #i guess#true crime#rodney alcala

    The Chain Smoking Toddler

    A two-year-old boy who had a 40-a-day smoking habit has been able to stop the bad habit after being given a year's supply of milk and biscuits. Little Rapi Ananda Pamungkas was smoking through two packs of cigarettes every day.
    He had picked up the bad habit by picking up used cigarette butts which were outside his mother's food stall in Sukabumi, Indonesia in the month of June 2020. The habit reportedly got so bad that he would start to pester and beg adults passing by to give him cigarettes. If he was not able to smoke, he would often "go berserk". His 35-year-old mother Maryati admitted that she would buy cigarettes to calm the child down.
    "My child is used to smoking while drinking coffee and eating cake. He has been smoking every day for around two months. If I don't give him a cigarette, my child goes berserk," Maryati shared.
    His favorite activity had become smoking a cigarette while drinking coffee. The toddler would also need to smoke a cigarette before going to bed at night. Recently, Maryati and her husband Misbahudin were seen with Rapi at the local market and the child as usual was smoking a cigarette.
    Once his story had got the attention of the media, doctors and government officials visited the family's home in West Java regency to offer advice and help. The child was given many boxes of formula milk and biscuits to keep him healthy. The local council also decided to make these supplies available for him for the next one year. Maryati was also schooled on the dangers and consequences of smoking.
    She was told that every time Rapi asked for a cigarette, she was to show him graphic pictures of illnesses and diseases caused as a result of smoking. "Yes, he's stopped smoking. I am happy. My child has not smoked for the past two days," she revealed. "Before I was afraid not to let him smoke. This morning I went to the market, and Rapi did not go berserk or ask for cigarettes and coffee".
    "Now for two days, he has not asked. He looks at the cigarette butts on the floor but does not pick them up. Usually, he would take them and suck them," she continued. The head of the Cibadak Public Health Center Maman Surahman said, "We, from the health center, are responsible for handling the child's nutrition. After the health center became involved, his condition has improved and the problem has gone away".
    "In order to stop him from smoking, we have given education to the parents. When children ask for cigarettes, they must be given scary images. This will make the child afraid. These are images of skulls, hollow throat, and so on. Doing this means that gradually this child has stopped smoking. We are also coordinating with the government for monitoring him. This is not only the responsibility of the Health Office. The therapy will also be a collaboration with the Office of Social Affairs," Surahman continued.

    I fully condone children not showing their parents things that will get them hurt

    #I’m sorry true crime youtubers but I do not agree with ‘disciplining’ children in any way #I believe in loving and supporting children and having honest discussions about behaviors you don’t like

    What happened to 15-year-old Rista Chanthavixay?

    So this case has stuck with me for years. I wanted to post it to tumblr to raise some more awareness.

    Rista Chanthavixay (erroneously spelt Chathavixay in the initial media reports) was a 15-year-old girl who went missing from Liverpool shopping centre, Sydney, NSW, on March 24, 2009. You can find more information on her case in this Reddit post (my own). Please do read the posts linked in the article, as they contain much more comprehensive information about Rista’s case than my own summary.

    And please be courteous and respectful in your interactions.

    I have no personal connection to Rista; this case just hit me hard when I read it for a variety of reasons. Rista’s case has started to gain traction in Australian and international media in the last few years and has been reopened by police recently.

    As always, if you have any information that may assist in locating Rista, please contact Crime Stoppers NSW.

    I can see you but you can't see me

    I could touch you and you wouldn't even feel me

    Wait a second and you'll settle down

    I'm just waiting, 'til you really let your guard down

    You're relaxed, you're sublime, you're amazing

    You don't even know the danger you're facing

    If I'm quiet, I'll slide up behind you

    And if you hear me I'll enjoy trying to find you

    I've been with you all day

    I'm trying to stay calm

    I'm impatient and it's really hard to breathe

    I'm going to empty you and fill you in with me

    Just keep the violence down

    Not yet, don't make a sound

    Oh god I'm feeling it

    It's reaching fever pitch

    My skin is caving in

    My heart is driving out

    No mercy, no remorse

    Let nature take it's course

    Watching, bring me to my knees

    Waiting, I am your disease

    Lover, set my symptom free

    Covered, you won't feel a thing

    You can't feel a thing

    I'm sweating through my veins

    I'm trying to hold on

    It's unbearable, it's almost worse for me

    I'm gonna tear you apart and make you see

    Make you see!

    Watching, bring me to my knees

    Waiting, I am your disease

    Lover, set my symptom free

    Covered, you won't feel a thing

    This is the virus

    The virus of life

    This is inside us

    The crisis, the knife

    This is the virus

    The virus of life

    This is inside us

    The crisis, the knife

    It's almost time to play

    It's time to be afraid

    I can't control the pain

    I can't control in vain

    Oh god I'm ready now

    You're almost ready now

    I'm gonna love you now

    I'm gonna break put you down

    I see you in the dark

    I see you all the way

    I see you in the light

    I see you plain as day

    I wanna touch your face

    I wanna touch your soul

    I wanna wear your face

    I wanna burn your soul

    Watching, bring me to my knees

    Waiting, I am your disease

    Lover, set my symptom free

    Covered, you can't love me

    This is the virus, the virus of life

    This is the virus, the virus of life

    This is the virus, the virus of life

    This is the virus, the virus of life

    This is the virus, the virus of life!

    This is the virus, the virus of life!

    This is the virus, the virus of life!

    This is the virus, the virus of life!
