I am a girl.

I Am A Girl - The Girls With Glasses Theme Song from The Girls With Glasses on Vimeo

The internet is a magical place, but
 I don't need to tell you that. The reason it's a magical place is that you can make it whatever you want. You can grab different sections and pull them found you and create your own special world. Yes, there is lots of hate and horrible stuff on the internet - but only if you go looking for horrible things and hate. It's so easy to build yourself an online world of just the voices you want to hear.

My internet world is mostly made up of twitter and blogs (and facebook, I suppose) and all of these are women's voices. Catching up with twitter is the first thing I do every morning (you either just smiled in recognition or pulled a face) on twitter I have the perfect combination of silliness and news, politics and cake, in my twitter feed. But mostly women. I realised the other day that I have created a mostly female world online. I don't know if it's accepted that the internet just ruled by women now, but Twitter definitely is. I follow so few men on twitter, and I don't think I've ever read a guy's blog... do men blog? If so, what on earth do they write about?!

Through my women's world, I get to find out all the stuff I need, but from a female perspective  - women's views on news keeps me updated with stuff that's going on in the world and I follow various journalists that keep me updated on the big and small stuff that happens here. I live happily in my girl world. I am definitely a girl's girl - I'm not deperately girly, but I am very GIRL. My interests are all girl, my humour is all girl and even my boyfriend has more female friends than male. I have literally no interests that guys tend to share. It's not on purpose! It's just how I am. My girl's world is full of hilarious women, e.g. the GODDESSS that is Caitlin Moran. A few men are allowed into this world but they often get ignored, I suppose this is the opposite to how most men are, or just the media at large - mostly ignoring women but allowing the token amusing one in. 

You can imagine what a horrible shock it is to leave the girl world and find that we have a bunch of entitled public school boys running the country.

I mean WTF?:

How much do you want to slap him/kick him to death? And distressingly, george osbourne's wife is called Frances. How could one of us have married such a creature?? (p.s. I realise that's a picture of cameron, but I don't have a particular fact about him except ERGH)


  1. Have you just decided that Osbourne and Cameron are so awful that they don't deserve capital letters for their names anymore? Because I am so on board with that! In Grace Dent's twitter book, she says about how women are represented on twitter in a way that they aren't anywhere else, so you are totally as cool as Grace Dent now! But basically, just YES.

    I had a moment the other day when I saw david cameron, Prime Minister on the tv, and it made me want to cry. Just sayin.

  2. The lower case first letters were soo me being childish!

    p.s. you rule
