I read things. I find them interesting. I share them.

My Birth Story, The Bipolar Birth Plan Was Bullshit and The Stigma Of Mentalist Mums (The Secret Life Of A Manic Depressive)- Honest account of birth and postnatal care for a mother with bipolar. With bonus pictures of an adorable babby.
I stand with Bahar Mustafa – Reverse racism isn’t real (Sam Ambreen)- Sam knocks it out of the park, and like Bahar, has upset a lot of white men. Good.
Sex Workers Don’t Owe You Any Answers (Alana Massey)- Shit that shouldn’t need to be said, said well.
Shit White Feminists Need To Stop Doing (Fernanda Toro)- Ditto. Read, take heed.
It did not start with Stonewall – Black lesbian elders tell their herstories.
A Rare And Remarkable Glimpse Into The Lives Of Trans Women In 1960s Paris– Photographs of the glamorous trans women sex workers in Paris.
The Underground Art of the Insult (Anna Holmes)- A brief history of throwing shade.
Congrats, you have an all male panel!– Shaming the all-too-common all-male panels.
Positive Behaviour S&M (Mark Neary)- This is what schools are doing to autistic children and it’s fucking horrible.
Workfare, Forced Labour and the new ‘Business and Community Wardens’. (Pete the Temp)- Exposing the forced labour in a “voluntary” role.
Mad Max: Fury Road Director George Miller: “I Can’t Help but Be a Feminist” (Vanity Fair)- What Miller describes here as he talks about his creative process is the bare minimum any fucking director should do, and yet they aren’t. Do a George Miller, and make an actually fucking good film.
And finally, the best of the hipster cop meme. Fuck that guy.
