Following my recent graduation from university, I have entered that difficult arena of adult life – the corporate world. I was lucky enough to land a fairly good communications position right out of university, and for that I’m pretty grateful, especially considering the current climate for admin related jobs where I live (there’s virtual tumbleweed…

If I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me ‘what do lesbians do in bed?’ I’d be a lot richer than I am today. However, right after that they usually ask how difficult it was to come out. It’s an interesting question, because the coming out experience is unique to the queer…

objectification of men – is there such a thing?

Zoya Patel
11 comments

If there’s one thing that most heterosexual women can generally agree on, regardless of what their individual stances on feminism are, it’s that hearing men talk about female bodies is often an uncomfortable experience.

I’ve noticed a trend lately of people lambasting the practice of wearing leggings as pants.
