The Aziz Ansari Metoo Debate Is Seriously Disturbing

You know, I’m having a hard time understanding the direction this Aziz Ansari #metoo movement is heading towards. Not because I don’t fundamentally get what it’s about as a woman. But because I feel like where it’s heading is confusing… So it started with women accusing men in power for abusing it. This was great.

Mood Swings In Women, Sue Me

Ahh, my period. The mood swings in women… I thought I was growing out of the pain, the cramps and the vulnerability. Every other day, I feel motivated and excited to accomplish my goals. Today, I feel jealous. Jealous that I’m not a man. Every other day, I love my life. Today, I want to be someone else. It’s so frustrating. I’ve spent the last month creating habits. Going to gym. Writing. Heading to events, meeting people. I’ve felt healthier than I’ve been in ages. Then Damien, my boyfriend went back to Sydney and I feel the universe is...
