Bring the club to the day

Already by doing this malarkey we’re doing something odd, by which I mean something unusual. But that’s no bad thing! Most of what’s “usual” about society is perverse, unnatural and a little insane once you look at it objectively (that’s a long story… which I’m working on!) One of these aspects is that there seems…

Fear and Loathing in Piccadilly Circus

Be yourself It’s one of the most contentious commands out there when it comes to advice. I’ve often thought it strange – one person commanding another person what to be, and commanding the other person to be what the other person is. I suppose it’s shorthand for “behave like yourself” or “act without social filters”.…

Isn’t this just harassment?

I’ve been asked that question by two journalists, a few onlookers and some TV production people. I was prompted to write this post after two girls that I’m seeing (both I’ve been with for over a year) happened to be harassed just before I met up with them. In both cases the problem was the…

Labels, labels, labels…

Whatever you think about Julien RSD, Dappa Laughs and how that ties into the recent neo-feminist movement and videos such as the new york cat calls, “PUA” seems to be a dirty word…

#YesAllWomen #CatCalling

As much as I see the MRA and the feminazi movements as different sides of the same grubby coin (the coin’s name is the NO EMPATHY COIN) I think that the #YesAllWomen hashtag and other recent trends, have highlighted some cultural norms which are good to challenge. I like challenging cultural norms – that’s why…
