About

Purpose:
This site is set up to share longer reads and critical observations. It will not be peppered with an over-abundance of hyperlinks, nor adhere to academic referencing standards, but will acknowledge sources. All posts are based on my own views of what is a credible source, informed analysis, and hilarious nonsense.  Nothing I write is, or is intended to represent, peer-reviewed research or official positions of any institution or organisation.

Person:
Past positions in frontline domestic violence and other homelessness services, now a cultural researcher and law lecturer in Sydney, Australia. Feminist, mother, atheist, bushwalker and camper, I stop reading and start strumming and singing when the rain drums down on the verandah roof (this spares the neighbours). Preoccupations with millenia of patriarchy, white supremacy and the combination of both, which forms the powerful elites who are plundering the planet. The mendacity and triviality of what passes for public debate drives me screaming crazy.

The internet knows many things, the hedgehog knows one big thing

  1. Thank you for “… beyond appalling”. I was on the phone to my sister only yesterday morning & among other things, lamenting the state of things. I’d not seen your blog (on twitter today!) but it says everything I was struggling to express and more.
    I hope you don’t mind but I did a FB share, with my own comment attached as follows: “Just wow – this lady nails it! If nothing else and perhaps without intending to, the article makes a case for why we should require, before election, comprehensive fitness-for-work/office medical assessments of ALL candidates for national leadership”.
    I’m not a doctor, but have for some time thought there could only be a medical explanation for Abbott’s ‘presentation’! It’s surprising there’s not been more such comment, but I understand medical practitioners’ significant, ethically-based restrictions.

  2. Get some perspective on how hard won, over centuries, your privilage to be a hippy has been. Democracy by revolution, prosperity by fossil energy, freedom of speech by bloodshed. Don’t fuck around with the fragile status quo too much or we will all regret it. Just think middle east and Africa. Go fight for women’s rights there if you want a challenge.
