In the last two days I have seen two articles online that have really pissed me off. First up was yesterday about a young girl, who to show support for her friend with cancer, shaved her head. So what did … Continue reading Two Girls – banned from school for not being “girly” enough
If you are looking for breaking out of gender stereotypes, previously, before switching careers (to IT) he was a librarian and I was the computer tech, and like many couples, we both have full time work outside the home. But even … Continue reading Not in my job description…
Although I try to avoid advertising, its impossible to escape from the seemingly contact barage of adverts trying to make us buy products to make us younger, more beautiful and slimmer. I can only assume that some people are really stupid enough to fall for this bullshit? There is no miracle cream or pill that will make you look like you a slim, gorgeous 20 year old.

This sparked a discussion about what options he actually had. He wanted to acknowledge all of us in the group and didn’t want to specifically … Continue reading Just one of the guys ?

Not the people from Brazil per se, but their namesake that comes from ripping out all the hair on the most sensitive parts of your body with hot wax. Does this sound like a good idea? Sure doesn’t to me. I struggle to comprehend why would anyone find the prepubesent look attractive? I can understand a bit of a trim, so you can stuff your copious amounts of pubes into a bathing suit, … Continue reading Whats wrong with body hair?
