I’m a feminist but…

My favourite podcast is The Guilty Feminist.  It explores a whole host of topics in insightful ways whilst being absolutely hilarious at the same time.  At the beginning of each episode the hosts disclose three un-feminist habits they have discovered about themselves.  Here are some of my own and ones friends have shared: (See a…

Bumble is a great app.  The only way a guy and a girl can talk with one another is if the girl speaks first.  As someone who can’t keep their mouth shut, this is perfect.  No need to ‘umm’ and ‘ahhh’ about whether to message first – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta…
