Dear young men

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in World

A list of things that young men should worry about in 2017. Stuff happening currently that has the potential for destroying, or at the least impacting their lives severely. These must be the things to be talked about on social media, on group forwards, in bars and in debates. Unemployment – It’s no secret. Finding jobs is getting difficult, especially jobs that pay the rent and keep you fed (ideally without sacrificing your mental health and social life) Tuition – For those of the current generation looking to pursue further studies, you know what I’m talking about. The tuition is […]

It’s time for comebacks

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Wonder, World

I am a twitter person. It’s my home, and I absolutely adore the space. It’s free and filled with people who are charming and witty. You can find people who are eccentric, and they soon become your friends. But there’s another group of people who spend all their waking hours making the lives of others absolutely miserable. The ignorant little pricks. Since yesterday, I’ve been trying to knock some sense into a guy who is, honestly, a lost cause. This one wants to slap activists who raised their voice over a human rights violation which was tied to the majority […]

Some things

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in World

I am sitting here, trying to write about something. And Nissim Ezekiel warned poets and authors to not write unless something truly inspirational happened. I live a life not very adventurous, there is no Robert Frost in me to see the poetic potential in mundane everyday things. And so, I write about nothing. John Green said that someone else said that some infinities are bigger than other infinities. For example, in infinity between 1 and 10 in bigger than the infinity between 1 and 2. But can infinity be boxed? And if it is boxed, is it really infinity? And […]

Oh, Guardians of Culture

Recently I stumbled upon a post, which led to a rather…peculiar website. I knew it stood against everything I believe in, but I was curious to read their justifications. This is what I read when I scrolled down, and well. Okay. If you insist, former football coach. I might also add that I find it amusing to see how football coaches are now qualified to make judgements about morality and immorality and call for an entire team movement against homosexuality. Screw the game, let’s talk about God and The Bible. I think this individual forgot that the “White Man’s Burden” […]

Appreciating Queerness

I have a man’s body. I accept this body. I offer it to everyone. I have a woman’s body. I accept this body. I offer it to everyone. I have a man’s body. I reject this body. I desire no one. I have a woman’s body. I reject this body. I desire no one. I don’t know if my body is a woman’s or a man’s. I feel I am a woman. I don’t know if my body is a man’s or a woman’s. I feel I am a man. I have a man’s body. It should be a woman’s. […]

Same Sex Marriages

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in World

A late post, yet again. Apologies. I was busy celebrating and seeing the celebrations, the beauty of this historic judgement. The Supreme Court of the United States of America legalised same sex marriages in all 50 states. Of course, there are legalities involved and the implementation is going to take time. But the US started making progress. Baby Steps. Now, I don’t live in the USA. This decision affects me in no manner whatsoever, but here I am, happy. I feel happy for those thousands of men and women who are now equal. After fighting for decades on the end, […]
