is it okay: to sit next to someone (and be a potential space invader)?

Elizabeth Flux

Apparently humans as a group are a gas. Not so much in the 1950s tea party oh-my-goodness-he’s-so-funny kind of way, but in the way we will spread out to fill whatever space we’re given – equidistantly. People just hate sitting next to strangers. We’ve all seen it – at the doctor’s, in a lecture, on…

Hopefully by the age of four everyone has been taught about “stranger danger”. Don’t accept random candy, avoid white vans like the plague, and anyone remotely “shifty” looking or wearing a trench coat is to be avoided at all costs. But, we grow up, we learn about acceptance, and the deceptiveness of appearance. Fairytales didn’t…

is it okay: to slut shame?

Elizabeth Flux

When a group of professional women raise hemlines and lower necklines when they go out on a Saturday night, they are “letting the team down”. If two women decide to make out in order to impress a man, they are bowing to societal expectations. Allowing women to fight on the front line is not a…
