I thought long and hard about whether or not to write this blog post, for fear of being ridiculed by men, or trolled by feminists, some of whom might feel I am disrespecting the cause.

Laura Maisey

Why do we act this way to one another? I am yet to figure it out, apart from the idea that cycling in a big city can be nerve-wracking and makes us snap at each other.

Brogan Driscoll

The implication that I may not have a grasp of my own sexual orientation is insulting. It wasn't that long ago that women were denied sexual pleasure altogether, now I'm supposed to accept that my last 27 years have been a lie. No thanks, science.
