There's Nothing 'Feminist' About Defending Pornography

Caitlin Roper | Posted 03.07.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Caitlin Roper

That any objection to pornographic material is characterised as anti-sex puritanism illustrates just how effective the porn industry has been in aligning its product with sexual liberation rather than sexual exploitation. Pornographers have successfully taken acts of dominance, cruelty and abuse and called it sex.

Let's say you are faced with a tough problem. It could be at work or in your social life. You have wrestled with it for a while and now you have to make a decision. I recommend that you try using the three by three method.

The Age Of (Natural) Beauty

With modelling agencies that only sign up people older than 45, and age no longer being a barrier to enter America's Next Top Model, how old you are is becoming something to be flaunted.

Conservative Commentator Tomi Lahren Confuses Viewers Over Pro-Choice Views, But Should We Be Surprised?

Kerry Abel | Posted 30.03.2017 | UK Politics
Kerry Abel

As uncomfortable as it is to find allies with people you fundamentally disagree with, Lahren is exposing the deep-rooted hypocrisy in terms of what it means to be a libertarian. Lahren is right that libertarians cannot on the one hand say the government should have limited involvement in things like gun control, yet at the same time dictate what women can do with their bodies.

The Dream As A Side Hobby

Selling out - we all enter college hoping to change the world. By Christmas of final year, we all have traineeships in big firms. At what point, did we sell out? Did we realise we sold out? Is this even selling out or is just looking out for yourself?

Further Research Into The Links Between The Pill And Mental Health Issues Urgently Needed

Katie Silver | Posted 17.01.2017 | UK Universities & Education
Katie Silver

It is important to emphasise that all women react differently to hormonal contraceptives and where they fail for some, they work for others. The point of this piece is not to scare-monger, but to draw attention to the need for more research into something that could have a deeply negative impact on some women's lives. Truly informed choices can only be made... with enough information.

You Are Not What You Think You Are

Often we can go through life identifying with our thoughts, our habits of thinking and believe this is the truth, that this is who we are, when this is not actually the case. Thoughts are just thoughts, they are not who we are and by accumulation of these thoughts we create behaviours and subsequent identities.

What will the Government's new national commitment on end of life care mean for hospices?

Jonathan Ellis | Posted 23.08.2016 | UK Politics
Jonathan Ellis

Hospices also have an important part to play in raising awareness of the new national commitment to end of life care. Their longstanding expertise in providing quality, compassionate care and their widespread links with organisations across their local communities, means their role will be crucial to help deliver the transformation in care for dying people that the Government desires and which is so urgently needed.

We Need to Talk About Consent

Lucy Farrington-Smith | Posted 02.08.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Lucy Farrington-Smith

Consent is as simple as saying yes or no. It doesn't matter if you are single, because that doesn't mean yes. It doesn't matter if you accept a drink, because that doesn't mean yes. It doesn't matter if you smile at someone, because that doesn't mean yes.

Abortion - A Choice Made From Love

It's a decision that smashes your heart instantaneously into a million pieces. A decision that changes you forever. A decision that you cannot run from and will carry on your shoulders every second of each day, your first thought in the morning and last thought at night.

In Defence of Rugby - The Real Issue Is Choice

Simon Sapper | Posted 03.03.2017 | UK Sport
Simon Sapper

Our school kids and their parents should have the right to chose whether or not to participate in contact sports, and be encouraged by the knowledge that they will be well coached and managed. It is no fun and to no advantage for 11 year olds to be chucked into an environment that if poorly coached and badly managed, is as unsafe as the critics claim. That's the real issue.

Refugee Crisis: Kindness or Tear Gas - You Decide

Jacqueline Ward | Posted 18.09.2016 | UK
Jacqueline Ward

Globally, we said that we would never let displaced people be herded around Europe on trains, their faces pressed against razor wire and high fences. That we'd never again hurt people who, for whatever reason, had been marked as 'other'. On an individual level many people now don't seem so sure.

If what you truly want in life is balance, tranquility, and peace - set about making that happen for you. Stop pointing the finger. Stop bitching about it. Stop blaming everyone else, and allow yourself to make the choice once and for all.

Why Can't People Accept Women Who Don't Want Children?

Lisa Downs | Posted 14.05.2016 | UK Parents
Lisa Downs

Children aren't for everyone, and I wish other people would accept that. I'm tired of being judged for not wanting children. Women's sole job in life isn't to have children. It's to give themselves the best life they can imagine, as we only have one shot at it.

Motherhood Choice

The husbands, partners, ex's of these glorious, strong, intelligent women never seem to come under this scrutiny. They go to work and I suspect can get through days, weeks, months even when they are not quizzed about how they 'juggle' it all.

I Demand Less Choice!

I really miss having no choice. There's a real frisson to those moments when you lose the remote control under the sofa, or the wi-fi network packs up. You might have to watch something you don't like, or even something that you have no opinion about yet. Losing the remote is a scary rollercoaster of possibilities.

How Come Patients Sometimes Stop Treatment?

How come we don't know when to give up and when to keep going? What price are we willing to pay for life? Would we do whatever it takes to prolong it? Should we be allowed to determine when to stop treatment, when we or a relative become seriously ill?

Saying Yes, Saying No

Maggie Currie | Posted 25.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle

If you have all this choice, why is it sometimes you reach a point where life seems so incredibly cluttered and pressured? Probably it is because you have lost sight of what you're saying yes to and what you are or are not saying no to. And you have equally lost sight of why you are saying yes or no.

Cause and Effect

Maggie Currie

It's that simple. In any situation, if you can stop, ask that question of yourself and accept that no matter how much you want to answer it with "well, actually, I didn't create this"... you did. If you can accept 100% responsibility for what's going on, you put yourself at cause and you immediately grant yourself the power to change it.
