'Marriage inequality like apartheid' - Charlize Theron

I cannot deny the fact that Charlize Theron is an outstanding actress, on and off the Hollywood scenes, but there’s something about her that reminds me way too much of my ex-wife… Come to think of it – the similarities are quite frightening!

Both women (Theron and the ex) are attention-seekers of note… “Drama Queens” would indeed be a far more fitting description. Both women speak with a Standard American English (SAE) accent, which according to Wikipedia is sometimes referred to as a "newscaster accent" or "television English", which I suppose is an essential part of the technique used by some people to impress, electrify (and manipulate) a gullible audience, whether the audience is American or not.

Both women departed South Africa in search for greener pastures. Although it is quite evident that Theron found hers I’m not too sure about my ex though, as I don’t even know where in the world the woman is… and, believe you me, I don’t even want to know… It would not surprise me in the least if it comes to light that she too adopted some poor African kid – just to dampen down her feelings of guilt, for the wake of destruction she left on African soil.

Although my ex also appeared well-spoken, intelligent, charismatic, and extremely attractive (in my eyes) when I first met her - qualities which attracted me to her in the first place, it all changed a few weeks after our marriage vows were exchanged, roughly at the same time the honeymoon ended. My devoted affection for her and all the other passionate feelings associated with love, appreciation and respect, flew out the window the moment when her narcissistic personality traits came to the fore. How she managed to hide it during the two years of courtship still boggles my mind.

Now I’m not implying that Charlize Theron has a personality disorder of some sort, but I’ve often wondered how she managed to portray the role of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster (2003) with such marvellous success. Incidentally, in her latest movie Snow White and the Huntsman she plays the part of an evil queen. BTW - The release date for South Africa is 1 June 2012.

Both women appear to be quite happy with being mothers, without the extra burden (it would seem) of having a permanent husband around the house. Temporary guys who come and go are fine by the looks of things!

Another common feature between the two is their neurotic fixation with “Self”, “Me” and “I” - or to state this differently – their preoccupation of being fearful about what others think of them, which so often leads to the abnormality of making ‘political correct’ statements in public.

While it is quite understandable that celebrities have an image to uphold, there’s no doubt in my mind that Charlize Theron’s adoption episode is a perfect example of political correct behaviour, for the sake of boosting her career-image, no doubt!

While being politically correct for the sake of ‘image’ is a common trait among the liberal-minded, in the case with my ex the angelic-like impression she fashioned in the minds of influential outsiders was nowhere near a reflection of her true character. In reality she was so far racialist in her views I’m quite sure that if she still lived in SA she would have been locked up by now for some or other gruesome act involving xenophobia.

Only time will tell whether Charlize Theron’s mind harbours an equivalent mindset, or not. My guess is, being an actress of note, the general public will probably never know.

I can list several more peculiar commonalities between these two females, but with the full awareness that I myself am by no means perfect (far from it), it would perhaps be callous of me to continue raging on and on about the imperfection of others.

The point I want to make, however, is that certain types of people (men and women), no matter how attractive, caring, and loving they appear to be, are not marriage material… In fact, they're damn-right dangerous when it comes to personal relationships, and they know it themselves.  It would thus be advisable to take heed of their own warnings, no-matter how subtle they may be or how hard they’ve tried convincing others that it’s never their fault.

As per example I’ve included a recent news report (with own comments in brackets), which reveals how Charlize Theron cunningly employs ‘political correct’ thinking to conceal her true reasons for not wanting to commit to marriage at this point in time.

'Marriage inequality like apartheid'
2012-05-28 16:37

Los Angeles - Charlize Theron says she has no plans to marry anytime soon, even if she meets someone new, because she finds the institution unequal.

The 36-year-old South African beauty told YOU magazine: "Marriage is not for me (the exact same words my ex used, after we married). Until it's equal for everybody, I don't want to be a part of it. I grew up during apartheid and this feels similar. (What the...?)

"Why can heterosexual couples have the legal status of marriage and same-sex couples cannot? That is like having a white water fountain and a black water fountain." (Oh pleazzze Charlize!)

'I try to live in the present'

Charlize also said she wants to go into space. (Go Charlize go!)

The Snow White and the Huntsman actress - who adopted a baby boy named Jackson in March - thinks it would be a "scary" experience, but would love to be onboard Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic commercial space flights. (What is wrong with South African born Elon Musk’s space transport company - SpaceX?)

She said: "I'm totally open to going up in space. Isn't Richard Branson doing it? But I hear it's expensive! You can go up for $200 000. I'm open to all of that stuff. (Elon Musk is going to do it cheaper, but shoosh, don’t tell anyone!)

"I'm sure it would be scary, but hopefully I'd just be going to see what it looks like, so I'd be coming back.

"I wouldn't miss anything here because I try to live in the present." (Huh?)

My anti liberal, anti zot, anti pinko brain cell kicks in whenever I see the unnatural association of man and beast. It does not matter to me in what context it is, I cannot feel empathy. So up Charlizes arse, I hope it becomes as wide and unsightly as my mother in law's

Hey dont worry Tia, I dated my ex for FIVE years before I married and only then realised how asleep I was .... took another 10 years to get out of that one. Also the angel in public but behind the homes 4 walls was a different story.... my family and (ex) friends still think she is this ideal wife I let slip. Oh well, my loss I guess (nooot... lol).

Unfortunately too many people believe that love is a feeling in your heart. It is not. It is an act of your will. The feeling is just a warm fuzzy.

People who believe it is a feeling will run for the door the first moment they sense the feeling is gone or if a problem appears.

People who "DECIDE" to love will stay together forever, having the willpower and strength to work out problems.

@Anon 10:41AM - Very true!

"To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket,safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable."
C.S. Lewis

Charlize got that child only for her image, that I am sure of. Just like a couple of years ago everybody in Hollywood was walking around with "skoot hondjies" in handbags! Accessorize girls! Makes me sick. Its a child not a plaything!

Wise words from CS Lewis...
I always say: "If there is more than one person in the room you have a dysfunctional relationship".

Unfortunately due to our fallen nature there is little we can do about it without repentance and the renewing of our minds by washing through the Word of God.

It is very easy to cause pain. Very very easy. The Bible says the tongue is like a spark. One little word can set off a forest fire of injury and regret.

Dealing with pain in a way that makes you stronger and more able to "love" instead of getting bitter and twisted is another story all together...

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
