Fun fact: Males cannot, in a court of law, accuse a woman of raping them. A shockingly short while ago a man could only press charges against another man for sexual assault or “non-consensual buggery” but he could not be recognised as a rape victim – not by the court and, in a knock on effect, not by the […]Read more "Rape: Not Just For Women"
Totally inspired by onlybadchi’s curly hair post a while back.

When someone tells you that you have privilege your knee-jerk reaction is to be offended, to want to […]Read more "Privilege 101: Do you have it? Is it bad?"
As a lover of fashion I naturally enjoy keeping up on the trends and I’m unashamed to say that I do buy Cosmo, Glamour and Elle – I even buy More or Look on occasion. I’ve mentioned before that I’m an extremely visual person and enjoy looking at clothes and most of all the […]Read more "Women’s magazines aren’t for all women"
You’d think that by now people would understand that invisible illnesses are actually invisible, meaning that you can’t see them or tell that a person has one most of the time.
