The Right to Bear Arms

What occurred in Connecticut was absolute pandemonium. The scenes were completely grizzly and judging from the comments it has polarised the gun debate. The tragedy is simply unbearable to read about…

Honour in New York

We have come to believe that honour attacks and the like are a rarity in the west. That they mainly occur far away and are such fleeting glimpses into a terrible world. The readers eyeballs prick with tears between the bath and pre-lunch beers… But we don’t expect this sort of attack in New York. …

So Part III in the Female Genital Mutilation Saga

  A Skepchick writer has come out in favour of the Lisa Wade’s article in one specific way… No one likes to be told what to do? Especially by people outside the culture if they are using language condemning a practice that is harsh. The problem is Lisa Wade poisoned that one point with the …

A Balanced Look at Female Genital “Mutilation” is Anything But

I started noticing a fair few hits from “The Society Pages” and went to see who was flogging my blog (That sounds… dirty, But then again with my accent saying “Can I butter your scones” can be considered as near pornographical).

Ray Comfort is not a Genius

Everyone’s favourite banana fan is back with a new video called Genius. If you want to have a look? Go watch it… But I warn you. I made my way through it painfully and regret doing so while sober. There is not enough alcohol in the world that will get rid of the horrid taste …

In Defence of Twilight

I am personally not a fan of Twilight. I have read the first book (you cannot condemn something based on hearsay after all) and from what I figured it was a terrible story with a vapid protagonist and an even more vapid vampire derived from an Anne Rice character but with a lot more cardboardiness. …

Ashley? More like ASH-LIE ! Am I Rite?

Well I am done with my first batch of exams. And hence I am tanked up on weird sleep patterns and loneliness. After writing my take on the sad events of Ashley Miller’s run in with her racist father, I was shocked to see people… actually I wasn’t that shocked. I know the Stormfront exists, …

Sugar and Spice

Madeline Kara had diabetes. Childhood diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases of children with type 1 diabetes affecting around 1.7 per 1000 Americans and a varying amount for type 2 (because ethnicity and socio-economic status plays a role). I said “had”, because Madeline Kara passed away from a diabetic HONK coma. (Hyperglycaemic …

Of Faith and Fannies – Female Genital Mutilation and Islam

Cover (nook)

Female Circumcision (Genital Mutilation) is one of the major problems facing women in large parts of the world. The practice is seen from parts of Indonesia through some areas of the Middle East to (it is thankfully rarer but it still occurs) to Africa where the practice is widespread due to a long history and …
