The study, conducted by the University of Toronto in Canada, analysed data from 1.3 … Continue reading MMM#9: Patriarchy Under the Knife
As another year flies by, it's common for people to reflect on what they have done over the past 12 months and ponder what they plan to do in the coming year. These plans usually get derailed and abandoned pretty quickly but I think it's still a good thing to do if only to see … Continue reading MMM#8: Looking Back and Looking Ahead

Through his blog I learnt about an article written on the website 'Aero' by Freya India Ager which explores the idea of 'toxic … Continue reading Thoughts on ‘Toxic Femininity’
I was very saddened to hear that the YouTuber Vention MGTOW died from cancer on 25th September 2021. I subscribed to his channel a few years ago as he was friendly with some other YouTube channels I followed that primarily explored men issues and identity politics. As his name suggested, Vention identified with 'Men Going … Continue reading R.I.P. Vention MGTOW
If you've read my most recent posts, you will have noticed that I've been thinking a lot about technology and how it affects our lives.

Although I have a Twitter account - if you're interested, you can view it here - I try not to go on it that much and I've found that I don't really miss it much when I avoid looking at it.
