About roughseasinthemed

I write about my life as an English person living in Spain and Gibraltar, on Roughseas, subjects range from politics and current developments in Gib to book reviews, cooking and getting on with life. My views and thoughts on a variety of topics - depending on my mood of the day - can be found over on Clouds. A few pix are over on Everypic - although it is not a photoblog. And of course my dog had his own blog, but most of you knew that anyway. Pippadogblog etc

  1. Meghan Murphy is a good writer and as usual the article she wrote is fearless and puts the female situation front and centre, as it should be, with regards to feminism. Thank you for the links. 🙂

        • As we do. I read Julian. My best pal on the bus home who always saved my beret. A boy. But oops, the author Julian is female. We all fuck up.

          But there are bigger and better ones. Did you read about the two women kicked out of the Canadian shelter because they complained about a (trans) man sharing a room? Very. Bad. Women. Poor. Trans. Person.

          Penis and testicles does not equal woman. Ever. Well, now it does.

            I just read that and was quite taken aback by it.

            We need more irate women speaking up about incidents like this. :/

          • There was an interesting comment about why not have trans shelters? The truth of the matter is, however way you cut it, half the population is victimised for being women. They are the ones who are raped, murdered, subject to DV, sexual assault, discrimination, sex trafficking slavery, um, what have I missed? Oh, less pay, lack of education, health care and no bodily autonomy. But no. The most important thing in the world is that a man, purporting to be a woman, takes precedence. Jeez. Couldn’t make it up.

            Today I feel like a purple people eater. I expect everyone to treat me as such, I want special purple people eating treatment and my pronoun of choice is purp. So there we have it.

          • Well actually fighting for and establishing infrastructure that will help your community is *hardwork*. Why make your own, when you can colonize other people’s safe spaces.
