Beautiful Message. Lousy Presentation

We must respect all people who are concerned about animal rescue and welfare. It is irrelevant how they present their arguments. Forget presentation. Focus on content. On the issue of animal rescue, which is life and death for an animal, presentation should be meaningless — if we were less obsessed with froth and more concerned with reality things would be far better, generally.

This is the video (which, incidentally, seems to be a second attempt because there is the number 2 against the video file name):

I think she is fine women. She is smart and caring. What more do you need in a woman? Many people won’t understand this. They will make some cheap comment. Also she has the courage to present herself on video where you can be shot down with critical comments. I admire that.

Yes, her presentational skills are poor but why should we be concerned with presentation on such a fundamental matter? Presentation is presentation. It is froth, fluff and it panders to the poor and weak human psyche.

Here is a YouTube comment about her poor presentation:

How can you be so dull you can’t see how crazy you look?? I understand that you mean well maybe but you do nothing to help these poor animals. You bring negative attention which is not the goal you have in mind I hope and will make it even harder to keep the rescues in the public eye. It is the way you come across that gets your posts blocked. Use other media because obviously fb is not working for you and you will never get anywhere the way you are going!!

Sir, you are a shallow person. Please become more mature and listen. The same applies to FB.

Have you experienced a similar or the same problem on Facebook that this lady is describing?

    I don’t even have a huge problem with her presentation – why is it that being emotional is looked down upon? That, if anything, is a massive metaphor for what is wrong with our culture. It’s important to be emotional.

    • Michael says:

      Well yes, I agree. Thank you for pointing that out. The poor presentation criticism is based on convention. But convention so heavily encrusted with crap 😉 Her message is a good one too: Facebook is messing around as usual.

        It’s difficult to be passionate without being emotional.

        • Michael says:

          And I love that passion in this video. Controlled anger and she is right. She makes a good argument. It should be listened to and respected.

        Yes – I guess I am commenting on that ‘crap’ that is ‘encrusted’ in our own subcontious. It’s hard to accept having to present in a preset way at the cost of the content of said presentation. It’s a “talk like you are supposed to or don’t talk at all” kind of thing. There’s no middle ground in that sense. I feel so dirty inside when I catch myself making judgements that are conditioned into me via toxic cultural formalities I grew up with and am still controlled by.

    I think she’s brave too, she has something to say and she’s saying it, good for her, I wouldn’t dare do it. She’s on the right side and she has a heart of gold.

  3. Dee Kessing says:

    I applaud her and anyone that passionately defend their rights and the rights of animals!

    • Michael says:

      Fantastic. Me too. This sort of person is so important to the planet. They hardly have a voice because everything is run by alpha males who want to make money.

  4. Ruth aka Kattaddorra says:

    I think she is a very brave lady and passionate about the good she and others are doing via face book.
    Anyone criticising her should try standing in front of a video camera making a speech as she did, obviously without any script!
    The person calling her dull and crazy needs to take a look at himself, I wonder what he does to help animals?
    I share a lot of animal stuff on face book, I’ve lost friends who don’t want to see the truth, but we have to keep on doing it if we really care enough and like that lady, I DO care.
