You can beat depression

Jul 9th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

I’ve been there. I thought the darkest thoughts and felt the worst pain. I did self harm and I cried a lot. I learnt many things from that whole experience but one thing I can tell you is that self harm did not help. Self harming was like putting a plaster on something. I convinced myself at the time that it was helping but I knew it was a temporary good feeling. Afterwards I felt so much worse because I now had both physical and emotional pain to deal with. In hindsight it was a very bad idea to ever self harm at all and I want you, the reader, to benefit from my hindsight.

Jun 16th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

Recently, a man actually thought that he could change me and my wife. He believed that he was so great in bed that if we slept with him we would know that we weren’t really into women as much as we thought.

In the four years my girlfriend and I have been together she has lived in three countries, and I in just one. By next autumn she will have upped her tally to four and I will be moving abroad for the first time, though not to the same country she is moving to.

Bring on the Butches!

May 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

Casting my mind back to a few years ago I find it difficult to recall a prominent lesbian presence on television however now I’m struggling to find any representatives for us butch lesbians. We are seriously being neglected. Perhaps it’s an attempt to portray lesbians as average looking women that don’t look particularly manly or don’t appear to be rejecting their feminine side.

So further rumours have been sparked surrounding Kstew and the possibility that she may/may not be a lesbian. In an Entertainmentwise report it is alleged that Kristen Stewart is in a relationship with ‘BFF’ Alicia Cargile and yes, they’re both women. Gasp.

Do you believe in lesbian love?

Apr 30th, 2014 | By | Category: Featured, This and That

I recently heard someone remarking that lesbians are less likely to have a long-term relationship than heterosexuals. It really surprised me that we are still viewed as promiscuous people who are practically allergic to commitment.

Scarleteen needs your help

The sex education that my generation received in school, while a lot better than my parents’ generation, still left some pretty big gaps. Even now, it’s safe to assume a majority of teenagers aren’t given enough of the facts about sex and relationships in school; and that’s just thinking about Ireland, where fortunately abstinence-only education hasn’t been brought in the way that it has been elsewhere.

Against feminist orthodoxy: why sex positivity is sex critical

Apr 16th, 2014 | By | Category: Sex Talk, This and That

After the many fragmentations and horrid situations that happened due to the so-called sex wars of the 1980s, the internet has made it so many of us share spaces again. Nowadays, we are more likely to see it phrased as ‘sex positive’ feminism versus ‘sex negative/critical’ feminism.

Dingle: Home to friendly dolphins and lesbian penguins

Apr 10th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

Penguins are regularly cited as evidence of homosexuality or bisexuality present in the ‘natural world’ (which humans aren’t part of?) and you may even be familiar with some more famous couplings such as Silo and Roy, two chinstrap penguins in New York.

What not to ask

Apr 1st, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

Persons who are transgender seem to always be the recipient of unwarranted questions and conversations. It is my belief that the lack of training or discussion in workplaces, in communities and in churches has left many persons (cis) wondering about the transgender community and those who have transitioned.
