Why Do We Joke About The Office Creep? (364/365)

This is actually a question as I don't have an answer for this topic as it grosses me out to my inner core and I hate that I've witnessed how work culture allows pervesion and sexual harassment to become normalised and even joked about.

Bandwagon Diversity Isn’t Real Diversity (360/365)

If a brand or a celebrity has suddenly decided to give a shit about minority rights in a way that is unnatural, then unfortunately they're jumping on acceptance of everyone as if it's a fad.

Sorry boys this post isn't for you, so try not to feel too left out.

Reflecting On My Petty Week (328/365)

So this week I wrote a series of posts as a petty reaction to people's response to racism - yes the posts were a reaction to a reaction, it was like some bastardised version of inception but through sheer pettiness and honestly I'm not even mad about it.

My Transition from being a Tomboy to the Woman I am Today (321/365)

Like many girls who grew up and experienced their teenage years in the naughties, I was a proud tomboy. Part of it was because I rejected anything feminine and looked down on 'girly girls' and another big part of it was because I crave comfort over anything else. So I looked down on dresses and … Continue reading My Transition from being a Tomboy to the Woman I am Today (321/365)

What I Wish I Was Told As a Teenager (307/365)

When you're a teenage girl you're sort of told loads of contradicting things and are somehow supposed to come out of it as a healthy functioning adult.
