  1. Oh I am not hostile in the slightest. I am just really sad that (now) almost 110,000 of your people have died from this virus, and as it was pointed out, the majority of them black people, and the only time their lives seem to matter is when it's trending or at the hands of your police force. If you are going to stand for black lives, then why aren't you outraged that so many have died, perhaps unnecessarily, in this pandemic for whatever reasons - vulnerable due to health reasons, being essential low income workers, no access to healthcare etc. Because according to some, racism is at fault here too. To only be outraged when a black man dies at the hands of the police force, the same police force you would call when someone is breaking into your home, just smacks of hypocrisy, virtue signalling and jumping on the bandwagon to get clout. And at least I am not posting silly memes calling you a "Karen". I have said all I want to on this topic, so will take myself elsewhere and stop reading replies. Maybe I have given you something to think about. Regardless, I wish you all a good evening and hope you stay safe at home, or at least remain socially distanced and protected with masks and sanitiser during your protests.
  2. The majority of New Zealand's population is of European descent (70 percent), with the indigenous Māori being the largest minority (16.5 percent), followed by Asians (15.3 percent), and non-Māori Pacific Islanders (9.0 percent). Demographics of New Zealand - Wikipedia As of July 2016, White Americans are the racial majority. African Americans are the largest racial minority, comprising an estimated 12.7% of the population. Hispanic and Latino Americans are the largest ethnic minority, comprising an estimated 17.8% of the population. Race and ethnicity in the United States - Wikipedia
  3. So are you standing for them? Viruses aren't racist. It isn't just seeking out the people of colour. 71% of our covid cases were people of European descent (white people).
  4. America (and the world) is in the middle of a fricken pandemic. Over 108,000 Americans have DIED from this virus. Elderly people, young people, vulnerable people - black, white, hispanic, asian, gay, straight... it doesn't discriminate. 108,000 lives that mattered!!! Over 1000 Americans died from it on June 2nd and there have been nearly 9,000 new American cases reported. (Figures found by googling US Corona stats) How many of them didn't need to die? How many would still be here if the need for a haircut wasn't more important than staying inside to prevent the spread of that virus? If the need to wear a mask didn't override the entitlement of people who thought themselves in the "it won't kill me" catagory? How many of them were infected by those entitled, selfish and thoughtless people and lost their lives as a result? It is disgusting that the so-called most developed country in the world doesn't give a hoot about their people and is letting stupid win. So how about standing up for the 108,000 people who have lost their lives, cos they matter too. Or is it not "trendy" and "virtue signally" enough? ALL lives matter.
  5. Kinda. RL - I am a tall, skinny blonde with blue eyes and small boobs. SL - I am tall and skinny, but have black hair and (at least for the moment) grey/hazel-ish eyes, still with small boobs though!
  6. You guessed it...it's standing around looking pretty time. Today's ponderings include...should I get off my butt and make myself a hot chocolate, what song should I use for my latest blog post, I really need to change my jeans, am I hungry, and damn, my last assignment only got a "pass"! UPDATE : In case anyone is wondering...I did make the hot choc and decided on a blog post song =D
  7. ^^^ THIS!!! ^^^ As for me...no I'm not because ... 1. I am not American or in America. 2. I'm not a bandwagon jumper. 3. I prefer politics and RL stuff to stay out of my SL. 4. I don't need the gratification of virtual signalling when I support causes. 5. I believe that people should BE the change they want to see in the world, not MEME the change.
  8. I SO relate to this. I think I have only remembered mine once in 12yrs...and that was THIS year!
  9. That it's a bit clearer where things should be posted? Obviously I mistook where to post for help cos I saw the word "answers" in the description.
  10. Thank you. I shall give this a go! But this never used to happen. Must be a new update thing 😃
  11. Okay so I updated to the new version of Firestorm the other day (6.3.9.58205), and now when I am using the arrows on my keyboard to walk around I find myself spinning around like a crazy person no matter if I hold a key down or just tap it once. Did I forget to change a preference or something?
  12. Yikes that sounds awful. I always end up being ghosted and abandoned. Hence the whole "giving up and not trying that again" thing.
  13. Your best bet is to message Manmoth and ask.
  14. Standing around looking pretty whilst debating whether to sort inventory, do more shopping, be a good girl and do a blog picture, or log out, go back to Netflixing it or finishing an assignment due tomorrow. It's exhausting just standing about!
  15. Not that I will enter, but Legacy as I already have all the others. My M-Alt would like a Gianni though.
  16. The dress is Sunday from Giz Seorn.
  17. The Doux one is instore and its a group gift. Last time I checked, it was free to join and in the "Past group gifts" thingie. TV's is a gacha, so might be easier to find on a MP search.
  18. You might be better off looking for styles that are hairbase/addon bun styles. Tableau Vivant is one I would recommend for this. Doux has a simple low bun addon as a group gift, but you would have to find a hairbase to go with it.
