Welcome! to another fine Monday morning. I’m feeling fresh and energised, mostly because I’m looking after a giant American Staffy at the moment who I have to walk every morning with two leads to ensure I have him under control. He’s really just a 30kg puppy which can be a lot of fun, until there’s a cat across the road.
Anyway, onto the link love. Hope you’re all enjoying life and excited about the festive season when I will be having exactly zero time off as I’m saving all my leave for March when my mum and I are doing something crazy and riding our ponies to Canberra from Melbourne…!!!

“I don’t like going to men’s rights groups because I think that they are involved with perpetuating the status quo,” he said. “Men’s violence is not just one type of violence amongst many types of violence, it is a violation of global human justice.”
He said that “impunity and power can become inseparable”.
