Women and Gender Fluid people born women

In light of the Sarah Everard murder, I think it is important to talk about safety for women and Gender Fluid people born women.  Being a woman can be a scary thing. You are always worried about what happens when you are out on your own. It is something that we always have to be concerned about. It has also something that you worry about especially when you see news where a police officer committed the crime like in the Sarah Everard murder. So, here are some things that can help with safety. Don’t walk down dark alleys alone if you can avoid it. If you can’t avoid it, be on the phone with someone else whilst you are walking there. Take some self-defense classes so that if you walk alone then you can protect yourself. Remember, if someone holds a weapon to you, following their instructions, it could be safer than fighting. It can mean the difference between Rape and being murdered. If you can safely get away from an attacker, then do so. If you live in a ground floor property or a

Celebrity Crushes and Supporting Each Other

I would like to say to every woman out there, stop hating on other women for the men they fall for. Also do not tell another woman that their celebrity crush is “not good”. Women can be very judgemental of who others like. Even when it comes down to celebrity crushes. I can’t believe how many people, when I was growing up, judged me on which celebrities I had a crush on. Honestly, it was disheartening. I know that Robert Davi, will never be in love with me or that Tom Selleck will knock on my door with a flower in his mouth. Billy Burke is not going to come and serenade me. Matt Hardy is not coming to sweep me off my feet. Shemar Moore is not going to get down on one knee for me. I know this but having crushes and fancying someone does not have to be realistic. It is something that we can all have, a dream. We need to celebrate our own dreams and value the fact that people have different tastes. Respect each other. Stay safe out there people.

Beauty and the Beast

  No this is not a post about the Disney movies or the cartoon. I want to talk about beauty and the beast. Women, no matter their look always feel like they’re the “beast”. That is if they are not the “bombshell beauty” that society says is the best. Me – at best I consider myself average. I am no Amanda Tapping! I also know that there is this view that all women want the male “bombshell beauties”. Not the case. Well, not the case for me. For me what is attractive is variable. If you stuck all my ex’s in a line you would find it hard to pick out the common denominator amongst them, except that they're all men. Don’t take my word for it, see the picture below. I have pulled together pictures of various different celebrities that I have had a crush on and fancied in my lifetime. I would ask that you find 5 things that link them other than the fact that they’re men and celebrities. You need to find 5 things that link them ALL.   Did you find anything that linked them all?

Gender Inequalities in Law

************************************* WARNING   This post is going to cover issues relating to the topic of rape. If you have been a victim of rape this post could potentially trigger you. If this could be the case, please do not read this particular post. ************************************** After witnessing an argument on social media about this topic I felt compelled to write this post. To any right-wing feminists who do not agree I don't care. Gender Inequality is not a uniquely women problem so if you have an issue with this post - deal with it. I know there are many feminists out there who claim that the world is not fair and equal for women. It is true there are many things where the gender divide is an issue. There is one particular issue however that is unequal down the gender lines and that is the issue of rape. Whilst yes, there are many inequalities in this topic for women, you can not hide the fact there are inequalities against men as well. So, what is
