I believe the commonly used phrase is ‘well jelz’?


Just a cute couple from the lovely world of Tumblr (source) to keep everyone happy and hopeful ūüôā



Members of Russian punk band, Pussy Riot, found guilty of hooliganism

I don’t think I could call this a human rights blog if I didn’t post something about this terrible injustice. Pussy Riot are an inspiration, to say the very least. ¬†I can’t imagine the kind of courage it must take to stage such an explosive event – one which would inevitably hold the risk of severe consequences.¬† This group of feminists are role models for every young person out there, because they refuse to sit back and do nothing, they fight for their cause, they stand up to what can only be called an evil dictator for crying out loud, and will go to jail for it. ¬†Not only is the fact that three Pussy Riot members have been sentenced to 2 years in jail an injustice, so is calling their actions hooliganism. ¬†Hooligans wreak havoc, they destruct. ¬†They don’t fight for good, they don’t inspire and they sure as hell don’t risk their lives. Their bravery is commendable, inspirational, and the injustice with which they have been served should stand as a warning to younger generations, yet another indication of the terrible effect power can have, and what we must ward away from. We must take heed, before we simply repeat the mistakes of the past.

My lesbianism is an act o…


My lesbianism is an act of Christian charity. All those women out there praying for a man, and I’m giving them my share.

There is Hope


I think this is a really amazing video, and pretty inspirational too. I mean, I would love to be like her, and help as many people as she clearly has. And over and above that, she’s a wonderful example of someone who has suffered from depression and anorexia, had the courage to start treatment and has come out the other side a stronger person. I think that for anyone who is struggling with the idea of getting help, for whatever reason, this girl shows that its something that can really change and improve your life. I hope this video will inspire people as much as it has me, and if it will help just one person, then I’m proud to have been a part of that process, and to have spread this amazing message.

Advanced Style Film: trailer


Just to make sure I don’t get sued or anything, all credit goes to http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com/ who are making a documentary about ‘stylish New York older ladies’, directed by Lina Plioplyte (http://www.teenagepeanut.com/).

These women are inspirational. I think that all women, no matter what age, can learn a lesson from them, about being who you are and doing what you like, without worrying about what society expects of you. Really looking forward to seeing the documentary later this year.
