• Bare Breast Ban – Irish Sun Right to Drop Page 3?

    During a month in which one of the biggest news stories has been the widespread ‘trolling’ of female campaigners on Twitter, it would seem that women’s rights activists have little to be happy about. But this week it was announced […]

  • Cyberbullying – Are the Websites to Blame?

    Cyberbullying has been a hot topic this week. The ‘Twitter Silence’ campaign – during which a number of tweet-happy celebrities abstained from all Twitter activity for 24 hours – was designed to draw attention to incidents of “trolling”. The trolling, […]

  • ‘I am Bradley Manning?’ – But Wait, Actually, Are You?

    Bradley Manning poses one of the single largest conundrums that we have had to face this side of the last 40 years. The “I am Bradley Manning” video going around, full of the usual celebrity wannabe activists, is as confusing […]

  • Pornographic Irony – It Runs Deep

  • Origami Vs Latex – Condom Warfare

    Condoms are great, but they also totally suck. They protect you against HIV, weepy, open herpes sores (as long as they’re on the shaft and not the general groin area, obviously) and arguably most importantly, a lifetime’s worth of child […]

  • Trayvon Martin – Playing the Race Card

    The reaction to George Zimmerman’s sentencing (or lack thereof) in the Trayvon Martin case is not without precedent. Discussion of Stephen Lawrence’s murder is never very far from earshot, for example. And it was the, widely considered unlawful, shooting of […]

  • No More Royal Babies: Another Kind of Pushing

    As the world descends into blubbering, incoherent madness over the Duchess of Cambridge squeezing out a small, short-sighted, potato-like creature who will, one day, maybe become King, we’ve decided to focus on another sort of pushing altogether. If you’ve ever […]

  • Tech News: An Honest Big Brother

    Reeling from Edward Snowden’s revelations, as a collective Western society, we aren’t too sure whether to be impressed by the American (and presumably British) governments’ spying capabilities – after all, it’s fairly extraordinary to discover such a reach and penetration […]
