A Voice for Me – Big Mistake

Whaddaya know, a second FTB blogger is currently being accused of sexual assault. He, too has a handy-dandy excuse. As feminists, we must believe accusers. Surely, something must be behind this. But in any case, we shouldn’t make too much of his excuse. Let’s remember this quote from an eminent feminist:

Reddit Response – Cultural Imperialism

Some questions for all the supporters. This is a private Christian school, why is a teenager’s wishes being held higher than the rules that the school set forth? Why did the feather have to be ON the cap, as that was what was actually opposed to? Explain to me how a feather that was at …

The Forgotten Shelters

In 2003, Orzala Ashraf Nemat had a dream. It wasn’t a big dream or one that would shake the foundations of the earth. But it was one that was important to women. Orzala dreamed of creating a network of women’s shelters in Afghanistan so that abused women would have a place to stay that could …

Back to the Grind

So I am done with exams (finally!) and can get back to regular posts and the like. And this seems like a good time to discuss the whole abortion issue that has raised it’s ugly head. See the problem with abortion is that it’s not a good thing. None of us like abortions, even the …

If You Don’t Stand for Something, you will Fall for Anything.

I disagree with Hirsi Ali on this one. Islam is so many different levels of screwed up at this point. It’s a religion where debate is not encouraged. It’s followers are exhorted to be as blinded and as fanatical as possible. It is anti intellectual and anti social. The nice friendly muslims are now a …

Rights of the Silent majority – Love is a Battlefield

Earlier, I wrote about women’s shelters in Afghanistan and how the funding for them was not regarded as important even for our own governments which state that they don’t have time to enshrine the rights of 50% of a population who existed as little more than slaves..
