Love Island 2019 runner up, Molly Mae has found herself at the centre of controversy, following comments she made on Steven Bartlett’s podcast, The Diary of a CEO. Allegedly taken out of context, Molly Mae’s commentary has fuelled severe internet backlash that has been branded sexist bullying by supporters of the influencer, while critics of […]
Inceldom is extremism and it breeds terrorists
The internet can be a wonderful place, until it’s not. Until men with links to inceldom murder two women, one three-year-old girl and two men, before turning the gun on themselves, in an event described by police as the worst mass shooting in Britain since 2010. The media can be a powerful tool, until it’s […]
Big trouble in bikini bottoms | Norwegian handball controversy
This week in another open display of bizarrely acceptable sexism, athletes on the Norwegian women’s beach handball team are being punished for wearing shorts, rather than bikini bottoms. Yes, you read that correctly. In 2021, the European Handball Federation issued fines over a “case of improper clothing”. Here’s a picture I found of the committee. […]
Richard Branson & the billionaire space race no one asked for
Ah, poor billionaires. In an increasingly socially woke world, billionaires have it rough. No longer is it acceptable to simply hoard cash, exploit the working class and grin maniacally in photos with your thumbs aloft. Oh no. Instead, billionaires are under pressure to prove they aren’t entirely useless. So, while racking their collective brains, they […]
I’m glad it’s not coming home | toxic masculinity & football culture
I bloody love football. Every major tournament sends me mad. I cry, clap, scream, hug, kiss, scream some more. I bloody love football. But football culture is a mess; ingrained in toxic masculinity and upheld by homophobic, racist and sexist sentiment. I’m so ashamed by the scenes from yesterday’s match against Italy – both the […]
Bill Cosby is free | This is why women don’t come forward
If the last week is anything to go by, it should be clear to you that women are not valued in modern society. Bill Cosby, a man found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting around 60 women, has secured an early release from prison. Meanwhile, Britney Spears has received yet another devastating blow in her […]
The public dismantling of women in the media isn’t new, but it’s now Martha Hancock’s turn.
The scorned wife, the femme fatale and the public dismantling of women. It’s a misogynistic and woefully predictable ploy used by the tabloid press to sell papers and generate clicks, and this week, Martha Hancock is in the firing line. As a reminder for anyone who may need it, accomplished osteopath and mother of three, […]
It’s not a weight loss device. It’s a torture device.
A magnetic weight loss device that locks a person’s jaw almost shut has been created to fight a ‘global obesity epidemic’ and, seemingly, reintroduce medieval torture devices to uphold the sexist discourse around weight loss. I say this, because existing weight loss and diet trends focus predominantly on women and, surprise surprise, only women were […]
