The internet is a big triggering mess atm and I am teetering on the edge of another major depressive episode. Kind words, good vibes or prayers (if that’s what you’re into) would be much appreciated.

There are many reasons for women not to identify as feminist. Mainstream feminism comprises women not dissimilar to those filling the #WomenAgainstFeminism hashtag: white, Western, middle class, straight, cisgender and able-bodied. This dominant brand of feminism leaves behind women who don’t fit those descriptors, forcing us to create our own movements. Women of colour, trans women, poor women and LGBQA women have long been chastised by mainstream feminists for rocking the boat: demanding a more intersectional approach from a movement which forgets, erases and ignores us is a big no-no. Instead, mainstream feminism prefers that Western women are presented as a monolith, a generalisation which omits the women most in need of change.

—A snippet from a recent article, #(White)WomenAgainstFeminism, about the flaws in both the #WomenAgainstFeminism and the mainstream feminist movements

I mean you can still be a Zionist and see that everything is fucked up and totally disagree with whats going on in the world atm. I’m not saying that hes not a horrible person, because he sounds like it.

Quotes from his twitter and instagram (some translated)

"Palestinians started this, they deserve everything they get"

"Thousands of people march in support of Gaza. Not a single one is British #Britainistan"

"Anyone who supports Gaza hates Jews and loves terrorists"

"Open your eyes, Palestinians are illegally occupying Jewish land. Obviously, war is needed to flush them out"

Defs a bad Zionist.

There was a guy in my year at uni who everyone, staff and students loved. I always had a weird feeling about him but put it down to my general I-hate-everyone attitude. I just found his twitter and instagram - turns out he’s a misogynist, body shaming, Zionist.

Always trust you gut, kids.

EDIT: Make that ethnic cleansing advocating Zionist

1.20pm

It’s a glorious day outside. I have been awake for 4 hours. My to-do list is obscenely long.

It might be time to get up.

I’ve been trying to write an article since yesterday but I have horrible writers’ block. My argument, tone, style have all been decided. The words are all bustling around in my head but I can’t seem to type them. It’s like word constipation or something.

I have a loan interview this afternoon.

If I get the loan, I can definitely do my masters this year. If I don’t get it, who knows.

I GRADUATE TODAY!!

Feeling very proud, excited and nervous all at once.

I graduate next Friday and I’m so excited and so scared aaaaah what if I look gross in my dress, what am I going to do with my hair, what if I fall over collecting my certificate, what if it’s awks bc I have like zero friends on my course?

I’ve finished my degree and results came in on Friday.
Looks like the hard work paid off, I will be graduating with a first class honours degree!

Currently being harassed by Atheists (capital-A) bc I dared to criticise how kyriarchy and atheism intersect.

Um…ok

I’m at work and I feel horrendous. I have the headache and sleep deprivation of a night drinking and the heavy limbs and stiff joints of a night out dancing. 

I’ve not been boozing or drinking. My body’s just being rude now.

Packing for 6 weeks back home. Do I need to take my leather pencil skirt? Studded denim waistcoat? Sequin hotpants?

I just submitted 2 postgrad applications. Please keep your fingers/toes/eyes crossed for me!

I feel really lonely today. Please will someone come and keep me company? I have wine, a record player and lots of takeaway menus.

I’m v serious about the loneliness. Does anyone want to skype?
