Modern Women Have Brains.... Get Over It!

17:17:00
Okay, I'm going to start this post by apologising, as today's post is a little bit of a rant. Now I am by no means apologising for the content of the post, because I firmly believe that these things need to be said however I am apologising for how 'heated' this post might get, shall we say? 




This is something that I have found to be cropping up a lot recently and I'll be honest, I am not okay with it at all. The notion that 'intelligent' or 'powerful' women are intimidating, threatening and undesirable makes every fibre of my being shudder in disgust for so many reasons. We should be celebrating the rise of the empowered woman, not branding them as a threat to fragile notion that is modern masculinity.

Now, this may sound fickle of me, so I apologise, but the idea that intelligent women are unattractive or undesirable also makes me want to crawl under a rock for a considerable amount of time. What kind of example does this set for the next generation? If we are raising young men and women with the idea that for a woman to be attractive to the opposite sex she must be less intelligent than them, then we may as well just hop back into the 1950's where the ideology was that a woman's sole purpose was to play housewife (now I'm not bashing housewives, just the idea that women don't have any choice in life but to solely be housewives).

The notion that in the 21st Century women should not be intelligent or strive for high powered careers, to me, is ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as the argument that these things make a woman unattractive.

We live in an age of growing equality with the number of female 'bread winners' growing year upon year, this is a fantastic achievement for women! More women than ever before are being educated and then choosing to study at a higher level, an amazing feat considering how frowned upon educated women have been in the not so distant past.

I'll be honest and make this post a little more personal by sharing the inspiration behind this post, not so long ago I got rejected by a guy on the grounds that I wanted to go into a high powered job and he'd always viewed himself as the one to be the bread winner, meaning that he couldn't picture a future with me on those grounds, not to mention that he also said that he couldn't cope with the idea of his girlfriend being more 'intelligent' than him, a highly disputed notion, but fair enough, each to their own.


So to return to the title of this post; Modern women have brains and its about time that society got over that and celebrated the rise of the powerful women in the way that they should! Phrases like "Career minded", "You'll regret that choice in a few years", "Independent" shouldn't be hurled like an insult at women who have chosen to further their career before 'settling down'. A woman's life choices are exactly that, hers! If she desires to be a housewife, then let her be a house wife, if she wants to be the CEO of a mega-corporation then let her do that! We live in an age of freedom and choice, it's about time that we started acting like it.

Once again, I apologise for how much of a rant this post is however I very much think that it needs to be said!

As always thank you for reading!

Until next time!

I Am Not Okay, But That's Okay....

21:14:00
Mental Illness is a minefield, you never quite know where to step as any move could potentially see it all blow up in your face, so we stay stood in the middle of the field calculating, searching, praying for a way to make it through it, desperately wishing that it would just disappear. You close your eyes and count back from ten, you open your eyes and oh wait, nope nothing has changed, you're still right in the centre of the minefield.

Not Another Party Political Broadcast but Vote... Please!

16:51:00
This is a public service announcement, there are only 5 days left until the General Election...

Theresa May has apparently stolen Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, Jeremy Corbyn is running up and down the country like a socialist chicken, Paul Nuttall is trying to claw back any scrap of credibility (If it ever had any in the first place) that the new found annexation of the Conservative Party formerly know as UKIP had. Tim Farron is being, well, Tim Farron, lets be honest we still don't have a bloody clue who he is and Nicola Sturgeon is running around the highlands screaming for independence and pushing 'Indyref2' down the throats of anyone that will sit or stand still for long enough. In short, the entire general election campaign trail has been a bit of a shambles and lets be honest, nobody has a clue who to trust.

How Easy is it REALLY to Cheat on Your Partner?

20:51:00
With the ever changing forms of digital media and platforms available to us today, it has never been easier to meet and connect with people, you no longer need a computer to be able to access this online world, including online dating. Which begs the question, with the invention of apps such as POF and Tinder, how easy is it to cheat on your partner in the modern age? 

To try and find the answer to this question, I made my way over to my long lost friend Tinder and quickly adjusted my old profile, at which point I also wondered, how willing would people be knowingly help me cheat on my partner. With that in mind, I edited my profile to look like this...

Too Fat To Be In The Gym... Pardon Me?!

07:42:00
So, this morning at 4am I donned my favourite workout gear, grabbed some headphones, put on my Fitbit and headed to the gym, usually between 3am and 5am is the time where the gym is empty, so I thought I'd be free to workout as much as I liked, this morning I was wrong in that assumption.

Can Someone Please Tag....

18:15:00
Yet again our Facebook timelines are being filled with ridiculously insulting and degrading photographs of people who don't "fit in" with societies norms, all in the name of what? Apparently, as per the usual excuse, it is yet again, "humour" however yet again, I find myself not finding this new trend at all funny, since when did it become funny to degrade other human beings.
