Feminism

What is on my mind right now? I came up with the my definition of feminism in class today, and its on my mind.. as a friend referred to it as cunt studies.. and i got pissed off...-

* the ability for a man or a woman to do what they will without having gender restrictions or biases imposed on them.

So i wonder, where did all the bra burning fit in? Would i burn my own bra? I do not think that would serve me well, not atleast unless we're all allowed to run around bra less. In which case i'd be more than happy to burn mine along with the rest of the women around doing so.

where did male bashing come in? I like men. I think all women like men, and i guess some men like men too. We just don't like those men that think that it's ok to stroke a girls ass cz she's wearing a cute little skirt in a club, a bus stop or even in the temple. But when i say we, i say, us women and us men, men don't like men who do that too. So it's not us women versus them men, it's us non-pervs versus them perverts.

where did all the woman loving come in? I'm a woman and yes i like women, n i'm cool with women who really love other women, mother love or lover love. Up to you. But i'm not cool with women who are overly unconfident, who think their obesity is a reason to world bash and media bash. Neither am i ok with women who think their womanhood is more important than a man's manhood. If it's about equality, it's about fairness and compromise, both are important. And i'm not cool with women who think they're being feminist if they point out all the women who aren't. It's not a religion that everyone has to follow, it's a thought that u either think or you don't care about. I'm not a woman hater, i just dislike women who give women a bad name.

So, rethinking feminism, how many of us can really claim to be one? And how many of us can say we are not one. Personally, i think the lines are fading, and just because ur a man, it doesn't mean ur aren't one and being a woman doesn't mean ur are one either.

feministly speaking, i am agreeing on what you are saying. i mean, yes we women love men but not to an extend of letting men mollest us women , nor raping us.

but my question is, what actions do we make, really?

most men dislike womanizer as well.
i was in a club one time where a random stranger,a guy was mollesting my drunk (girl), i as a so-called feminist can only give that guy a face of disgust while pulling my friend off him.

my other guy friends can only give him a sarcastic grin.

he was on dope, for sure.
and my girlfriend, well i'm sorry but i had to yell at her instead
for misbehaving and not being able to take care of herself whenever she enters a club.


bah,
that was a while ago.


anyways, yes. the line is fading.
but why?!
PFFFTt.

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
