Maybe you think millennials are 'snowflakes'? It takes strength to say it's not okay. Their admirable honesty and courageous exploration of mental health and countless interconnecting social issues is a vital antidote to the greed and the brittle facades of the eighties. They place their faith in the power of their voice, not in the size of the padded power-shoulders on their suits.
Author, co-founder of UK feminist alternative lifestyle website Mookychick.co.uk
Magda Knight is the co-founder and editor of Mookychick.co.uk, an alternative UK feminist website with a thriving online and offline community which has been running since 2005 and is more than the sum of its parts. She’s also a speculative fiction and YA author, and her words can be found on magdaknight.com. She’s a feminist, and many of the things she writes tend to have a bit of feminism in them. When she grows up she would like to be a sword or a bear.
I love the camaraderie of it all, but also I just kind of like to sing. It's frowned on if you do it in the street, it can feel self-conscious if you do it in film-approved areas like the shower. It's great when friends like a bit of a sing too, but it's not as common as it could be and certainly not up there in popular shared pastimes like a boxset marathon or two pints and a packet of crisps.

My compunction to play video games has grown even as have (and I admit this is an inelegant way of introducing my gender) my boobies. And I'm not alone in this.

When I opened an email to find an advertisement for '18 Again Vaginal Cream', a chill struck me to my core. Eurgh. This was ugly. This was ageism waving a feminist flag.
