Hello Littl’uns!
So this week I wanted to talk about something important - slut shaming.

So what is slut shaming? Slut shaming is the act of degrading and negatively judging someone (usually a woman) for engaging in frequent sexual activity. However, just because a person enjoys sex, does that make them less worthy? Not at all!
As previously mentioned, women are usually faced with the brunt of slut shaming. Men on the other hand are not usually held to the same standard. Among males it seems more common for a guy to be congratulated and adored the more sex he has. Yet women are sleazy and dirty? That’s not how this should work.
Sex is normal. Treating women differently in this respect only serves to alienate and make them feel like something must be wrong with them. With so many societal pressures already on the way women should look, need we add another on the way they should act? As long as sex is between two single people over the age of eighteen, and consensual, is it the business of anyone else? I personally believe not.

What’s more is often a ladies promiscuity is judged by what they wear. Which of course, is nonsense. Once again, men are allowed to walk around topless with no issue in hot weather, yet girls are shamed for wearing strappy tops and short shorts let alone anything less? So much for equality.
Ladies and gentlemen. If a lady wears a lot of makeup – that tells you nothing about their sexual habits. If she has big boobs – again, nothing. Tight clothing? Once again – nothing!

Please check out the video I made on the issue below, and let me know your thoughts! :)

Lots of love,

And so the journey begins...

Hello Littl'uns!
So as you may know, I do weekly vlogs on YouTube. To accompany these, I thought I'd have a go at this old blogging thing too!

So I moved back to Sunderland on Saturday for my third year of university, and it's great to be back. Moving away for university really forces you to grow up, in a sense. You are forced to learn life skills like how to cook, and how to work a washing machine. It can be a little hard to begin with, throwing yourself straight in. However, I've learnt to enjoy the challenge over the last couple years, and the independence that comes alongside it.

Classes don't start until next Tuesday - so right now I'm just enjoying settling back in with my lovely flatmates. I've chosen who I live with this year, and all three of them are people who I met in student accommodation in first year. To anyone going to university next year - I cannot recommend moving into halls enough! Coming from an introvert, I can assure you it's not as scary as it seems. Everyone there is in the same boat as you, often moving in with no friends, and not a lot of life experience. Moving into halls means you have people to attend freshers events with, it means you have help with a lot of university related issues on site and furthermore it means you can share cake at 4am.

I expect this year to be difficult. Placement begins just after the October half term so it's going to get hectic pretty quickly! I'll keep you all updated with how things go!

I love you guys dearly, goodbye!
