Alt right politics. We hear that phrase broadcasted on American news a lot - but not from Fox of course. The outright denial of the danger of far-right American politics looms more than ever, with the legitimisation of something close to Neo-nazism in the political arena. Trump allows far-right ideology a leg up into daily... Continue Reading →
Ignoring your opposition is easy in a world where division is so prominent. But, in the case of Trump, ignorance is what gained him the Presidency as he gave a voice to those who the liberal Establishment forgot. If we want to learn anything from Trump's time in the White House, its that we cannot dismiss our opponents, we must understand them.

Feminism, for me, has become an exhausting word. It’s not that I reject the label, I’m just getting tired of what the movement seems to mean to most people. I’m tired of the media stories always being about cis-white women’s middle class issues, tired of constantly defending myself and watering down my opinions to reassure people I’m not a ‘feminazi,’ and tired...
