Hate that I have to write about this subject here and pollute my otherwise rather upbeat & chirpy young blog page but after failing to fit what I wanted to say within the confines of a tweet I’ve decided to ventilate here instead.
As of today we all feel pure abhorrence for Ian Watkins and the ‘mothers' involved in the horrible stories coming out of his trial. (I use speech marks around the word 'mothers' here as we must ask the question do these women still qualify to be labelled as 'mothers'? Surely with their disgraceful actions they have rid themselves of the title of a female harbourer of young human life.)
But instead of the immature calls for death wishes I see disseminate through twitter can we not please focus our efforts on coming out of this dismal situation in a direction that would benefit society?
With his death, all we would see would be a simple case closed; end of; “the cunt got what he deserved” kind of thing. I.e. No one would objectively benefit from this situation.
What we CAN do however, (yes, whilst locking him away) is psychologically analyse the man thoroughly to seek some answers as to how and why a human can comfortably commit such atrocities.
Was it not just a cocktail of drugs but also perhaps some childhood trauma that brought on the propensities for a man to act like this? Causality must be taken into account and examined rigorously. Simply, we must find out what makes a human act this way. The more empirical evidence gathered on this subject the closer we can become in preventing further similar cases.
If our prison systems concentrated on gaining knowledge about the human condition and the human mind we might be able to stop cases like these happening in the future. (because whether we like it or not this is not some isolated case)
Future prevention > simple ‘justice’ or ‘vengeance’.
But if you’re one of the troglodytes calling for him to be hung or given lethal injection I’m sure this will all go over your head anyway.
Incredibly wise words, yet again, Rou.
I. AM. DONE.
HOW TO MAKE A CUTE DRESS OUT OF SHORTS
put shorts on
put legs in one leg hole
pull up and on to shoulder
And here we have glitterweave sporting a beautiful Sunset Yellow
NEVER forget to accessorize
well one of us is going to have to change
THIS JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER!!!
I really think
I’m winning this.
(Yoga pants do the trick)
It all just keeps repeating in my head.
Your hands. My sighs. My anger, and then yours. That drive. My tears. Your apologies. My fear. Your kisses. And every word we said that night.
I never thought you would hurt me so badly, and not like this.
I dream of drowning in
lakes, belly up, a petal
shaped bruise of your thumb
on either wrist
I dream that what lays
in my bed is so much
more terrifying than what
lurks underneath it
