Theory

Apparently thigh gaps are a myth and real women have cellulite – body positivity from the skinny girl’s perspective.

The body positivity movement started off as accepting each other and most importantly, ourselves, fighting all forms of body shaming and aiming for inclusivity. It was much needed and to this day it has a very important role.

In time however, it was used for the wrong agenda. In the name of body positivity I see something else entirely. Dragging other people to make us feel better about ourselves. Keep on reading!

#metoo

We lived in this culture, where sexual harassment and rape are “part of the deal”, where telling a woman that in order to build a career they have to ‘suck it up’ is acceptable, for too long. We still live in a world where women ‘deserve’ what they get. Where we might not even notice or not even do it willingly, but somehow we end up blaming the victim.  Continue reading “#metoo”

Relationships are not complicated, people are… 

Scrolling through my newsfeed I realised I see at least 5 articles about relationships every day. And most of them are contradicting. The worst thing is that these articles and those writing them, claim that there are universal solutions and truths that will work for every relationship.  Continue reading “Relationships are not complicated, people are… “

A short rambling about feminism…

I’ve been asked a few times why I think feminism is still a “thing”. I don’t think it is or it ever was. That would suggest being a feminist and the feminist movement are just a fad. They are in fact a matter of life and death for some women and a matter of daily humiliation and being treated unfairly. Continue reading “A short rambling about feminism…”

To the most amazing man I’ve ever met. 

You loved me when I couldn’t love myself. You believed in me when I couldn’t believe in myself and no one else did and you saw my future when I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.We broke each other’s hearts more than once but we also know how to make the other one smile. You know how to bring the purring pussycat out of me. You know how to make me laugh. You saw something in me I didn’t see in myself. I was never worthy of your love, of your affection, of your time. But you gave those things without asking for anything in return. You loved me unconditionally. You believed in me. You made me grow up, you made me fight. You made me reach my goals. Despite everything we’ve been through we can still laugh, we can still kiss and we can still make each other happy. We still know each other. We are still together and we are still by each other’s side. This is love. Unconditional, indestructible love. Thank you, for everything. For the times where you were there to wipe my tears off, for the endless hours we spent in each other’s arms and for the amazing places you showed me. You are the one and only. The man that’s worth the fight and effort. And the person who made me realise it’s always worth to put up a fight.

How Trump makes America great again

Donald Trump is the 45th president of the Unites States. He caused a lot of controversy from the moment he announced his plans to run for the presidency. Now that he’s sworn in he is causing some havoc and also international outrage. His first 10 days in office were certainly quite eventful.  Continue reading “How Trump makes America great again”

Aleppo and the Christmas spirit…

I wrote this just before Christmas but I think it’s still relevant and it will stay relevant for a while.

Since things took a turn for the worse in Syria and mass migration started people kept saying that refugees should stay and fight for their countries. When pictures of young, able bodied men swarmed the internet there was a massive outcry, people questioning why those young men aren’t staying behind to fight for their country. My only question is: would you? After you’ve lived through months of atrocities, lived in terror, feared for your own and your loved ones lives. Lost friends and family.  Continue reading “Aleppo and the Christmas spirit…”

In a World full of Kardashians…

A few days ago I read an article about those in a World full of Kardashians memes and what is wrong with them. I agree with most points but I felt like those points don’t defend the Kardashians, on the contrary, they just underline what is wrong with the World being full of Kardashians.
