I could probably list a hundred reasons why I love Glasgow, with everything from the culture, music, architecture, nightlife, and countless restaurants, to buskers and bagpipers on Buchanan Street, the Clyde, the Duke of Wellington with his ever-stylish traffic cone hat, and, of course, the people of Glasgow themselves.
As a society, we have fought against sexism, racism and bigotry. Today it's time for us to acknowledge another "-ism", one that's been around for a long time yet is still largely unrecognised: speciesism. Speciesism is the belief that all other animals are inferior to human beings and therefore humans are justified in exploiting them.
Boots - please review your sexist pricing and make this right. Make it right with your customers, and be the company who is the first to accept that there is no place for sexism on our high streets. This research has shone a very bright light on the extent of this problem - this isn't just about one industry. It's endemic, and we can change it.
While festival bills in the UK and overseas have been criticised in recent years for lacking female musicians, this year Glastonbury's Emily Eavis has made it clear that they intend to lead by example and will be "strong on women". Where Glastonbury leads others follow, so perhaps the industry traditions are slowly beginning to crumble.
The underlying cause of last week's strike is not, it turns out, chronic NHS underfunding, inadequate workforce planning, or constant inflammatory sniping from Jeremy "nuclear option" Hunt. No, it's the women like me who are first flooding our medical schools, then popping out babies with impunity, and finally abandoning our patients for a lazy part-timer's life.
EDM itself has taken hold of America and turned itself into a £4billion global industry. This is not sustainable. No genre is. The difference with EDM compared to dubstep, breaks or electric house though is that even the main players are calling out its death. Tiesto, Steve Aoki and others have openly said it can't survive.
Even without pageant experience as suggested by said stranger, I managed to compose a reply all by myself and without any help from a penis. I also didn't mention the appalling apostrophe use in his own message, which I can only put down to his own inexperience - presumable ill-equipped after never being judged semi-naked on stage.
