We are at the end of 2018. It has been a difficult and turbulent year. All in all, I believe the world did go backwards. I think it cannot be said that it’s the media’s fault that we all think that. If you take an objective look, human rights have diminished, authoritarian regimes are on the rise, LGBT rights have been reduced. I think it’s safe to say that the year wasn’t that good.Read More
First, let's get some things straight. A person might cringe and disapprove of feminism while simultaneously having no clue what feminism actually is. So, let's see what the definition is:
1: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
2: organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests
Note how neither definition contains anything about hating men, lowering the status or the rights of men, practising witchcraft or destroying the foundations of society – although it would imply challenging some of those foundations, namely ones that women and girls should be quiet and obedient and similar nonsense of the patriarchy.
So, under definition one, I am definitely a feminist. To completely honest, I do not participate in any organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests. Yes, this is a failing. I should try to at least get out to join a protest or a march when it's close. This is, in my opinion, the very least each of us should do in order to try and have a better world.

So, this series of posts is designed to explore this. I will tell you who I am in hopes of you being inspired to search for yourself in a similar fashion. So, let's get to it.Read More
