My Pride

To be reserved for qualities you have earned
Not random tokens assigned at birth.
I am not PROUD to be British, i fail to see the value of the smudged label.
I am PROUD that I am enlightened and realise nationality is a tool used to divide us all.
I am not PROUD that I was born female, this was a genetic coin flip.
I am PROUD of my choices in life, the ones I feel have made me a good woman.
I am not PROUD of my hereditary intelligence,
I am PROUD of how I use it to gain wisdom and leap across the camouflaged quicksand.
I am not PROUD of the chemical imbalances in my brain,
I am PROUD to have lived through the dark grey haze and stake it with a rainbow ice pick.

There Have So Been Books About Female Sexuality in the Past 35 Years

90sWoman.com

In a recent piece in The Guardian, “Feminism in the 21st Century,” Zoe Williams claims that no one has talked seriously about female sexuality since the ’70s: “The last person to make any serious noise about female sexuality was Shere Hite; that was nearly 35 years ago.”

This is a claim I see all the time, and it’s starting to make me feel like I’m delusional.

It’s Ok to Still Be Pissed: The Riot Grrrl Movement and Womanhood

Garnet on Winter

Nestled here, between reviews of horror stories I will place this little opinion piece.Riot-grrrls-Tuesdays1

Recently, I have found renewed personal vitality over rediscovering the Riot Grrrl movement. I am, in many ways, an ultimate child of the 90’s. While this movement slightly predated my full initiation into social awareness, is has been an important undercurrent of my development. There is a bit of the Riot Grrrl in the anti-establishment philosophies that surged (sometimes lazily bc everyone was high) in the 90’s. Riot Grrrl suggested for the first time that women should be pissed, an idea that rocked my world. The movement wasn’t only a medium for social change. It was unifying, supporting, and a damn good place for therapy.

It’s ok to be pissed.

I’m not saying spew hatred at your male loved-ones. But use it as the fuel that fires you into standing up.

So I ask, now that…

EDL accuse the BBC of not being racist enough.

So I work five days a week, one of my days off is spent doing whatever I like. Yesterday I built a flat pack sideboard with drawers and everything! My second day off is spent planning a snarky post, analysing something I disagree with. I don’t have to look very far, to be honest I usually have a dozen posts from UKIP, BNP or EDL’s website to pick from.

Today I’m picking up on the latest post on the EDL, posted Sunday the 26th October 2014 at 7pm. About a headline from 2005 that suits their agenda this week.

‘Streets Of Great Britian’ – Through the eyes of the BNP

If the BNP ever want to be taken seriously they should consider hiring someone to edit their propaganda a little better. Some will look at this and say, yes it’s terrible but it wasn’t made by the BNP party, I have now found the original on BNPtv here . Sometimes a raving liberal like me needs to search (albeit not that long) for stupid things the BNP have done but sometimes all I need to do is repost it. This video is the usual pile of steaming fear designed to make your average ill informed football hooligan run into the streets screaming like a banshee, wielding a hammer because he doesn’t want violence on the street of England…unless the psychopaths are beige…then its fine. Between the bizarre music, the strange choice of footage and laughable captions this is one of the strangest viewing experiences since George Galloway on Big Brother.

Ben Affleck’ll do it!

I really love Affleck’s appearances on Bill Maher show, its always a healthy debate about how much of people’s reactions are just that, reactions, and how much is racism. I find Real Time With Bill Maher very entertaining in general, and even though I often disagree with the host, I do find him to be very intelligent, informed & articulate man who encourages debate about important issues, even if his views are slightly alarming. This latest video shows Ben finally losing his shit as the debate gets more heated than usual.
