I hardly post purely feminist themes. Because one gets attacked, stalked, spammed and dismissed. It’s scary stuff. However:

Man if you lived my life
you’d be tetchy too.

Man if you endured
what I did, a woman
you’d blow your top too.

Man if you had to take the flack
what I have to,
you’d be a feminist too.
A vocal, loud, vociferous, strident, scared, angry, crying, frustrated, bored, thwarted, outspoken, furious, cranky, feminist.

    You know what they say… “ignorance is bliss”, people don’t want to hear the truth and are scared of change. Keep on keepin’ on sister. I’ll be a “feminist killjoy” until equality is achieved!


  2. I must say it’s dangerous… I have seen it happen to others… but I can understand the frustration… and anger.

Artist Statement or rationale or why do I do what I do



I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
