Mindless Mindset(Warning, incoming, LONG rant)
Every day we are bombarded by media messages, images, sounds, small things we tend to overlook. Children grow up watching the most ridiculous shows with no real educational value. Core values have been altered, morphed into subliminal mental programming, and many people don't even realize they are being brainwashed against their will. Free thinking is discouraged, replaced by ads, corporations telling us who to be, when to eat, what to wear, were to go, what to listen to, and most importantly, where to put our money. Sure, everyone is aware of advertisement, that's what it is supposed to do, right? It's our choice if we listen to what they say, but it goes much deeper than that.
Corporations like to give us this illusion of free will while they employ the use of psychological triggers to mentally condition us even from a young age. Sure, we all know this, but do we all know just how it affects us? How much of it is really our choice? Do we only think our
The art and technology of lifeEach day we awaken without a second thought. We complain of oversleeping, of under sleeping, of not sleeping right and contemplate getting just a few more minutes of rest.

So seldom do we think of that works beneath the skin. From flesh to marrow, our body functions in ways unseen to us. Ways often forgotten until something goes wrong. As we eat our breakfast, such a simple action, the complexities of our body begin to go to work. Saliva flowing to break down our food, the muscles needed to swallow, how our esophagus contracts to push the food to the next stage of digestion. Yet we do not realize these things until we choke, it is then we become painfully aware, but the realization is often forgotten just as quickly.
The rhythmic beating of a heart, blood rushing through our veins, unfelt until we feel for a pulse, unseen until we are cut. A constant transfe
Trangendered? Be yourself.I was told recently that I act like too much of a woman to be a man because I am one of the more sensitive and compassionate types of people. This was spoken by an acquaintance but it makes me think. If I had been born biologically male then they would not have said I was too much of a woman to be a man, but instead considered me a sensitive guy, something which is not a bad thing to be. This occurred due to me hugging my roommate and giving him a shoulder to cry on when he had a mental breakdown. Had someone born male done that it would have likely been seen as being a good friend, but in my case, because I was not born male in body, they use my caring as a way to try to prove I am not a man, when all evidence proves otherwise when it comes to my mentality.Trangendered?

It got me thinking. Yes, people hold expectations for how genders act, but those who are cisgendered, that is born in a body matching their mental gender, are allowed to bend and blur the lines without anyone questioning their gend
