Not the Ducks! – The Feminist Breeder Proves My Natural Birth Point

Yesterday I wrote about Natural Birth, it’s a contentious issue with regards to body autonomy. A lot of women defend the practice as “It’s not dangerous” as the stats in home birth are skewed by Home Birth advocates and in the name of patient choice, an inferior system of care is touted and pushed as …

Vitriol and Vitriolage – Acid Burns and the usage of victims in Atheist Bullying

PTSD is a funny beast. To suffer from it is not a form of weakness. I suffer from it due to the actions of others and trauma inflicted. How you cope with it is different too. Some revel in it and use it as a source of strength. They fight it and mock it and …

My Day

Medication is a powerful thing. The medicines we prescribe and take can change the lives of people. So when they stop using the medicine the change is phenomenal.
