Hello Monday, wasp is up with you?!


I was all snuggly in bed when I was suddenly brought out of my semi doze by the familiar and dreaded sound of buzzing. I awoke and saw a flying dot drive straight for my lamp. “Please, for the love of all things natural be a blue bottle” I thought. But I knew deep down what that noise belonged too. A bloody fat wasp that’s what.

Thinking fast, I ran out of my room to obtain a can of dry shampoo that I had left in the living room. Now call peta if you want, but this bugger was either leaving the way it came, or dying in a haze of tropical aroma. To put it bluntly, I would save anything else living but I fooking hate wasps. The cocky bastards. They are always ruining days in the beer garden, when you can’t eat a bag of scampi fries with out one of the bastards floating about, looking for a opportunity to fuck me off, and there was that time which I dread to recall –

True story.

It’s still out there somewhere. Even worse, it ate peri peri chicken and didn’t even show once that it felt the heat. Hard as nails. The hulk of the insect world. 

So with this prior knowledge, I brought up all of my strength and just ran into my room, using the door as a shield and sprayed in the direction of the humming. After a few minutes I heard a plop and a frazzle. Then nothing.

I waited.

And then I waited some more.


“Phrew” I thought, tripidly walking over to where the great wasp warrior had fallen. On my lamp’s energy saving light bulb.

I almost felt bad until two seconds later I heard a bloody buzz again, looking up to see another of the bastards had come through the window.

“Damn you summer evenings!” I cried and ran forth to protect my territory. Can of dry shampoo in hand and rage in my belly, It took a few minutes but it felt like a life time, as previously mentioned, wasps are hard nuts. Eventually it gave up and so, here I am writing about my great wasp war with my windows closed, getting hot and flustered and unable to sleep. 

I really, really hate wasps.

feminist weekly round up 7th july – 13th July

Well ding dong,

Apologies that this week’s feminist weekly round up is a wee bit late, I have just been a busy bee, as previously discussed. I went to stay in the country this weekend, which was very replenishing and hayfever inducing…There really is something about England in the summertime isn’t there? Anyhow, on with the round up – 

So we have all heard about Magaluf girl and gone through the media farore, as well as all the wonderful slut shaming  (le sigh) regarding her performing sexual acts on 24 men whilst pissed in a bar. While a lot of people were throwing stones, I, like many others was just in awe of her stamina. Whatever your thoughts on the subject ( and I would love to hear them) it’s interesting to see the debates and discussion that have arisen from this story.  As someone who works in marketing I found it rather fascinating to read about the video advertising issues that the mirror had to then face.

A tragic story from Pakistan, where a pregnant woman was a victim of honor killing in Lahore, for marrying against her families wishes. What was bad about researching this story was when I Googled it, there was more that there one recent stoy about this subject to look at.

An interesting article on “lad’s Mag’s” cropped up from the Guardian in my news feed, where actress Romola Garai talks about her thoughts on ladsmags, and the fact that she has benefited from them as well. I did a project on lads magazines when I was studying and it is a really thought provoking area of the media to research. On one hand, tits, they aren’t bad you know? but then, tits, aren’t just for sex you know? All very debate worthy.

Observer News

And speaking of ladies in the media, Kiera Knightley discussed her desire for more females to be featured more prominently in the film industry, which when you consider stats like these , you can see her point. I love cinema, I really, really do, so I am happy this subject is being discussed more and more.

Racial stereotypes were written about on forharriet.com where they shared their thoughts on the “Sassy black sidekick” character.

The huffingtonpost shared this very catchy tune from singer Meghan Trainor, called “All about that bass”. Which is a positive anthem that celebrates women of all sizes, apart from skinny bitches. Not sure the irony is intended but it’s much, much better than “blurred lines” So I ain’t complaining.

The Huffington also had this article about an armpit hair experiment in a gender studies class, you can even get extra credit for it! Hard choice, do one less task and get extra credit for laziness, or have no arm pit hair and be better liked on the tube. It’s like Sophie’s choice.

This very funny article about sexism in comic books was also shared on my facebook page but had to give it a shout out here too.

Why Must Dudes Ruin Perfectly Good Superheroine and Action Franchises with Their Requests for Diversity?

Stop! The beauty maddness was another contribution from huffington post, which discussed the stop the beauty maddness campaign which want’s to “suck us in the guts” with their frank ads about the high expectations of the beauty myth. To be fair I have seen so many campaigns like this I don’t feel sucked in the guts, but like the sentiment anyway.

We end the weeks FWRU with another week, another experiment about beauty and sexual attractiveness, this time on dating ap Tindr. Now I know very little about this ap so I felt very old fashioned reading the article, but the girls at work have filled me in on it’s uses. It’s like a supermarket for picking people up. This experient asked the age old question “do men really prefer the natural look?” or is it all just lies,lies,lies!


The article comes to the conclusion that men love a bit of slap but of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all of that jazz.

Anyway I am ofski to drink tea but I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of the above!

Until next time lovelies, BP <3 Xx

Rock Lobsters and Busy Bees

Apologies BBz for my very fashionably timed bog post, 

I have been a very busy bee seeing family up north, so I hope that you can forgive me!

Not too long ago I lost my old facebook account, which was very distressing, as not only was I forever losing my comic middlename, but I also became untagged from many, many night out photos. This wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t for the fact that I wasn’t a camera carrier myself in those days. Therefore I have no pictures of my own to reminisce about until someone tags me in some of their old pictures. So you can imagine my delight when I discovered these old ditties from when I had just graduated and lived in Shrewsbury. It was a friends birthday and her choice of theme (she loved having a theme and threw the best parties because of it!) was “favourite animals”. I remember her going as a beautiful peacock, another as a tiger, and there were a few sexy zebras and bumble bees dotted about.

I came as this – 



Yeah mother fuckah! I went as a lobster. I love a good lobster

I was so happy to see these snaps where I felt I performed my greatest reenactment of the “mean girls” Halloween party.You know which one I mean – 



My only sorrow is that my ebay purchase didn’t come with claws. I had to make them quickly using a long ago stolen hotel room sewing kit and my imagination. I wasn’t the most random outfit in the end as I eventually bumped into a cockroach, and my friend kimbo came as an earthworm. It was amazeballs. 


I even won a bet with my friend Line that I couldn’t keep my outfit on all night AND dance, pah! I partied all night. *fistpump* 

The best thing about this outfit is that my dad went on to wear it to my mothers 50th birthday party. He just walked in the restaurant after desert. I have ever been so proud.

Am I alone in now looking forward to Halloween?!


Love, love BP xX


Feminist weekly round up 30th – 6th July

 Whoot whoot, 

I hope everyone’s weekend has been full of fun and frolics? I myself had a quiet one due to a busy week that consisted of two huge lie ins ( I bloody love a good lie in) , a run with the boy on Saturday followed by a lamb roast so sexy it should be illegal, but this was was legal due to having no carbs ( I’m on a huge health kick at the minute, but that is a completely different post!)


Soooooo what has been happening in the week that would interest us feminists? I ain’t gonna lie, it’s been a very, very busy week! I’ll start slow but expect a pretty long blog post, so I recommend pouring a fresh glass of vino before you start.

And we begin – 

This great picture of Queen Maud of Norway appeared on my facebook wall on sunday – 

 Blooming heck, look at that waist, no really, it’s there right between her hips and torso. It’s certainly a reminder that body hatred and fascism isn’t new peeps, and I will certainly be going into the history of it in the near future. Consider this a teaser for the “fun” to come. 

Another thing that isn’t new in the world of body fascism is Hollywood’s obsession with skinny minnies but alas, now it’s no longer size 0, oh no, that is so passe! We’re talking SIZE TRIPLE 0 these days! Oh joy..

Of course, take it with a pinch of salt, we all remember the hysteria of the “bikini bridge” which turned out to be a hoax by those little scamps at 4chan. This may be a trend, or it may not. Fingers crossed it fucks off never to bother us again.

For what it's worth, the term itself has been around since 2009.

 Buzzfeed this week posted something ACTUALLY relevant to society rather than the standard “13 reasons LONDON is AWKWARD ( or insert another targeted keyword in it’s place)” by posting about things women don’t do because, well, we are women and the world ain’t all sweetness and light. 




The huffington post shed light on the tumblr “straight white boys texting” . Let’s put it out there, any race of man can be a complete skieze not just the white ones, but it’s nice to know there is a place to find some form of group therapy about this sort of shiz. 


The group and site “a girls guide to taking over the world” ( LOVE) shared this amazing post about female skaters from the 1970’s. OMG so cool. Like UBER cool. Be their friend here to get all their great posts on your facebook wall. 



Jezebel reports on the Pope missing an opportunity to help the female cause by cracking a joke. BAD TIMING DUDE. Fortunately as an atheist I’m not affected by this mans opinions like my catholic friends, but he has been doing some actual good recently and I can’t help but be a bit glum that he didn’t take the opportunity when offered, to make a difference, or at least comment on this subject. 



The catwalk goddess that is Iman spoke with the Guardian and discussed her past, what it’s like to be a black model in a racist industry (don’t argue, it is) and what the face of a refugee looks like. This woman rocks my socks. Loved this interview. Love her. 


 The Guardian also discussed the sexism in sport reporting, with a focus on Wimbledon….speaking of Wimbledon – 




Now I would LOVE to hear you thoughts on this one. 

Allow me to introduce to you performance artist Narcissister who is also a political activist and pusher of the #freethenipple campaign. 


 I expect to see a lot more of her cropping up in the next few weeks, my only regret is that she isn’t a fuller lady with less attractive breasts, then I wonder how much media attention she would get? Either way, more power to her. 




Kirstie Allsopp wants us “to fuck off as she is IS a feminist“. Of course she is, why not? Let’s not be dicks about this about this, she has a point. Fertility ISN’T discussed enough. There is nothing wrong with wanting children and being aware of biology, what she didn’t consider when she made her comment but mentions in this interview is the fact that she happens to be wealthy.

Allsopp says: 'I am an independent woman with my own company who encourages other women' (David Vintiner)

Wealth. That changes everyone’s goal posts. Think I’d be doing what I am doing if I could have afforded my own house and put my career off at twenty bloody three?! Think I want to live miles away from my friends, family and beloved, as well doing the London 2 hour commute everyday? Pfff.

Nah, I’d be at drama school living my dreams and being creatively inspired everyday but sadly, not everyone has that opportunity nor can live on £5,000 a year without a trust fund.

Not everyone has the means to have children at a young age, should they want too and let’s be really honest, I am so fucking lucky to be where I am, it kinda haunts me. The generation after me, those just graduating…I wouldn’t swap with them at all. I read blogs all the time by smart, savvy post graduates all in the same position-  internships, menial jobs or being told they have not enough experience. where do you go from there? Grr, makes me so angry! Touch base if you are on of those people, I’ll see how I can help. 

But I digress, my point being – if you can’t feed yourself, how can you have children? The world is a hella lot different for me than it was for the generation before me..but that is a completely different blog post. It just grinds my gears when people start dissing us millennial’s. In fact I just think- 

I understand you mean well Kirsty, but let’s live in the real world, yeah? 



 Next up is a reminder of the #bringbackourgirls campaign and the fact that those girls are still missing. Sadly, it took popstar Adokiye Kyrian to offer her virginity to boko haram  to remind the mass media that it happened in the first place. Some say this is brave and empowering, others a PR stunt, either way several hundred young girls are still missing and this fact sucks.



Rapper Angel Haze discussed feminism and the media view on interracial lesbian relationships with the independent. I’ll give you a clue, they are kissing because they are “friends”. Of course they are daily fail, of course they bloody are. I wish friends snogged each other all the time, I’d be well happy, as I have loads of hot friends.


America fucked up again with the whole bringing religion into the uterus again. I’m sure most of your have heard all about this so I won’t go into detail ( as I could go on forever) But gahhhhh!

Thank fook for women like this



So after all that cray, cray we will end it on a lighter note, last FWRU I mentioned the feminist wedding article by Laura bates. well here is another follow up to by the Guardian on feminist dating.

You food channel fans ( My name is bunnypudding and I am a “diners, drive ins and dives” addict…) you may have had your heart broken by  Adam Richman’s  little incident . Well turns out that Adam’s new show has now been cancelled “until further notice” ekkk. I am interested to know everyone’s views on the #thinspiration trend. Is it ok to use or bad, bad, bad? 

Phrew! That was a busy week, I am now off to chillax with a glass of rioja and something good to read. 

Until next week my lovelies! make sure to like/share/show me love in some way as it makes me feel special and if you see anything interesting, make sure to send it my way. My email is on my “about me” page. 

Love you long time BBz!

Bunnypudding <3 Xx 


Hurrah For JLaw <3

Whilst I am currently working on the feminist weekly round up I thought I’d share this wonderful quote from my beloved JLaw. Thank fook there is this woman in Hollywood- 


I’ve got this theory that she has formed a super femme tag team along with Lorde and their mission it is to save the sanity of women everywhere from the Bullshit of the media.

Can I join? Huh? Huh? I’d be well good, I’m small and fast.. well, I am if I have two sports bras on and the bresticles don’t get in the way…le sigh.

Natalie Dormer, the female Chris Kamara-rarasputin

Ok. Just putting it out there BBz, but am I the only one slightly in love with Natalie Dormer?

Oh of course not…Look at her!

…oh by the way , I highly recommend saying “yes” as I loathe competition and may have to kill you. SHES MINE!!

Oh Natalie Dormer, read me poetry of the smuttish kind and drink rioja with me whilst we listen to female jazz singers…my god. It would be beautiful. We’d be the best lesbian couple since Ellen and Elle, and you know what? I’d keep my boy, you’d keep yours. I would be sweeeeet.

Call me.

Spanks! BP x
