“Just imagine what you are losing because you are not reading” – Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

In honour of world book day, I bring to you a brand new post all about books! Books have the power to move you and make your brain work in ways that television and films cannot, and the great thing about books is that you can never read them all. There are so many hidden…… Continue reading “Just imagine what you are losing because you are not reading” – Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Menstrual blood is the only source of blood that is not traumatically induced. Yet in modern society, this is the most hidden blood, the one so rarely spoken of and almost never seen, except privately by women.” – Judy Grahn

This post is going to be about periods. It is going to talk explicitly about the blood that leaves the vagina every month; more specifically, the blood that leaves my vagina every month. If you are immature and have the mentality of someone living in the 1700’s, then this post probably isn’t for you. In…… Continue reading “Menstrual blood is the only source of blood that is not traumatically induced.

What with phones and…… Continue reading “Before we can forgive one another, we have to understand one another” – Emma Goldman

“Women who love themselves are threatening” – Naomi Wolf

This post is for everyone who has ever been called stuck-up, a snob, full of themselves, selfish and you-think-you’re-better-than-everyone-else. That’s probably an awful lot of people, and if you’ve never been called any of those things then either you’re the one calling people out, or, you simply don’t love yourself enough. I am not afraid…… Continue reading “Women who love themselves are threatening” – Naomi Wolf

“Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages” – Thomas A. Edison

As I look out of my bedroom window, I see a primary school filled with young children who one day will lead this country. I see them sat in their classrooms in their somewhat smart uniforms listening intently to their teacher. I see them run around the playground in their P.E kits competing in football…… Continue reading “Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages” – Thomas A. Edison
