Mahsa Amini.
People who know me know that I am a republican in my political thinking (not to be confused with the distorted American party currently dominated by misogynists and homophobes). However, with this article, I intend to pay tribute to the woman herself, not her status as the Queen.
Twitter suspended Jordan Peterson's account after the dumbass made transphobic comments about Elliot Page. The Canadian psychologist tweeted: "Remember when pride was a sin? And Ellen Page just had her breasts removed by a criminal physician." After the suspension,...
Here's a challenge for all of you Metal fans! 🤘🖤🎸 Can you guess which band I'm referring to through emojis? The emojis represent the band's name, sometimes using wordplay and double meanings, or a song or album the band is famous for. I added in some cases a flag to...
When I was younger I wanted to be a stand-up comedian. I've always loved writing jokes and making people laugh. I still love writing jokes and coming up with humorous comments. In fact, the idea behind V-Thoughts on FemMetal was initially writing quick jokes out of...
