Your first time counts

I am an avid fan of the West Wing therefore interested in American politics as well as being a fan of Obama. He's not perfect, he's not done a LOT of things he said he would do BUT he's about 50000000000000000000 time better than MITT ROMNEY. 

My list of things that are wrong with Mitt Romney:

Lena Dunham endorsed Obama with this little video about her first time... Definitely make sense to make the most of your first time or make an even BETTER choice your second/third/fourth time. Whatever number it is for you, Vote Obama next Tuesday 6th November.

Easiest test in the world

Are you a feminist? 1 in 7 women say NO and I'm pretty sure a stat like that doesn't even exist for men even though I know plenty of men who call themselves feminists.

ANYWAY, take this test and you shall see how easy it is to call yourself a feminist, putting aside just for one second all the elements that can be associated with it (race, class, geography, culture, space, politics...)


I hope you'll find the answer to be a resounding YES!

GO GO Julia Gillard - speaking out against sexism

What an inspirational female leader - actually standing up and pointing out sexist remarks made by the Leader of the Opposition.

"If he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia he doesn't need a motion in the House of Representatives, he needs a mirror" - BOOM!
