Anonymous said: Why do you identify as a feminist if u are a privalged white female?
I’m from an upper middle class family, I have a home, I have food, I have clothing, I have primary/secondary/tertiary education, I have a car, I have access to basic health care and (for the most part) I feel safe walking around my area. Do you know how many of my fellow women in the world do not receive those basic, fundamental necessities?
Just because I am one of the lucky ones, does not mean that it is okay for me to sit back and avert my eyes from the others.
I will be a feminist until there is gender equality in the world. Until we have equal pay, until we feel safe walking at night, until we can wear short skirts to school, until we aren’t sexualised, until gender roles are no more, until there is social, political, economic and cultural equality. And even if those things do happen, I will still identify as a feminist.
I can go on for thirty years about why I’m a feminist, but I think it’s more important that you look up the definition of feminism.
laid is pronounced like paid but not said and said is pronounced like bread but not bead and bead is pronounced like lead but not lead

Well for medicine we can only apply for 4, I’m going Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester and Nottingham and then my 5th choice might be neuroscience or something? I don’t know where though!

We are giving it a go, yes! I’m going up this weekend and in two weeks time he is coming down for the weekend and two weeks later I go up etc etc. Plus we can text everyday and FaceTime a couple of days a week and it actually works out quite well as we’re both pretty busy during the week anyway.

No idea, don’t really care. I gained weight due to stress eating over exams, I’m losing it again due to exercising more and snacking less. I just go with the flow!
Anonymous said: The "is England a country" anon here. Why do you have one government and one prime minister then? Thanks!
Scotland and Wales and Northern Ireland do actually have their own governments too! But most of the decisions are made in Westminster in London because the countries are all ruled under the one power. Those 3 other countries have representatives in the UK government in London :)
