The (ok, so it’s been over a week but it’s a catchy name ok?) Feminist weekly round up!

Hello Bbz

It’s been a pretty crazy few months in the world of feminism ( isn’t it always?) So I am gonna jump right into it.

Tim Hunt (would change the surname to a rather humorous swear word but from his comments he obviously has neither the depth nor the warmth of one of those) made a little “joke” that got a few people pissed off. By few people, I mean half the population of the world.

Between falling in love and crying these lady scientists had a few hilarious responses to his comments which made it all a lil bit sweeter. If you want a daily fix check out the vagenda’s fabulous social campaign response by searching for #DistractinglySexy

Seriously though, bloody hell Tim! We can’t take you anywhere can we?! Either way he has recently responded and he’s learned his lesson. Read your audience next time Tim or call your self proclaimed feminist wife, she seems like a good sounding board for any future jokes.

What isn’t so cool is him losing his job, he may make bad jokes but he also saves lives with his research, so you know, maybe forcing his resignation may save PR for the university but the world certainly has lost something. PR people are sometimes really stupid and shortsighted. I bet they are female.

One of my Girl crushes Amy Schumer confirmed that you can be above size zero and “catch dick”.

“I’m probably like 160 pounds right now and I can catch a dick whenever I want, like, that’s the truth. It’s not a problem!…I didn’t lose my two front teeth until I was in 5th grade, which is late. And that very same week, I got my period. Which is early. So I was just this jack-o-lantern with tits walking around, and I had one of those moms that was like, ‘You don’t need to shave above your knees.’”

Remember peeps if you are going to out and catch dick, please do it safely and make sure that the dick you are catching isn’t actually attached to an even bigger dick ( we’ve all been there..) because you deserve a dick that is attached to decent human being. Listen to Aunty bunnypudding, she loves you. She wants you get your petite morts and respectful cuddles without having to suffer emotional scaring by morons.

Angelina Jolie continued being amazeballs in her campaign to cease rape being used as a weapon of war. Even offering a few ideas (between falling in love with Tim Hunt and Crying)

“We need policies for long-term security that are designed by women, focused on women, executed by women—not at the expense of men, or instead of men, but alongside and with men. There is no greater pillar of stability than a strong, free and educated woman, and there is no more inspiring role model than a man who respects and cherishes women and champions their leadership.”

Preach Ange, preach.

Oh and tell us something we don’t know – mothers are the most under paid people in the world (other than you know, slaves) and to add to that fabulousness to cover the cost of the stress caused by sprogging off, one would have to earn an extra $66k a year…on top of the $120k she doesn’t get paid for the work she does at home. Nice.

We will end on a goodnote with sharing the “good news feminism” tumblr. Check it out if you don’t want to become constantly depressed after reading articles about the world.

Still a bit glum? Well BITCHES take a look at this fabulous video of the bootylicious Luisa Omielan. Self esteem ahoy!

Now I am off to play with my belly fat and wiggle my thighs. Remember, when in doubt, upgrade.

Until next time my lovelies!

Love, love BP Xx

The never weekly feminist round up

Hello Darlings,

How art thou? I hope you had a good weekend? I had a weekend of work but all for good projects so I didn’t mind. It’s been a while since my last feminist round up, but hey, I’ve been busy! So here is just the tip of the iceberg in what has happened in the world of feminism. It’s going to be brief so take it all in.


The sun were dicks.

There was excitement as The tabloid The Sun, decided to play a media prank by pretending to pull page three. We all couldn’t quite believe it and when we did, it was swiftly shoved back into our faces and we were again forced to motorboat the breasts of the beautiful younglings of page three. I have a lot of thoughts on this, but I would need a blog series to cover it, so I won’t start here. I am keen though to hear your thoughts and opinions on the subject.


To Sprog off ,or not to sprog off? That is the question. 

The Stylist wrote a great article on the much debated issue of children.  I preferred it to this one on Thoughtcatalog “I think people without kids have empty lives and im not sorry about it“. Yikes! The comments section on this makes for interesting reading. Does anyone else read the comments section or am I just a lonely sad comments voyeur?!

Whats wrong with society in on screen capture.

what is wrong with the world



Just reminding the media this happened.

Just a brief one for now, otherwise I will never find a blogging / work life balance. That is one New Years Resolution I am happy to share. Work smarter not harder.


Let me know you thoughts on the above lovelies!

Love, love Bp X

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 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

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!

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.

Feminist weekly round up <3

Tis the weekend Peeps, and I hope that you have something exciting planned. Me? I’ve had pizza in bed for breakfast and may leave this house later to attend one more public. Nothing more exciting, as the boy goes back to his new posting on Monday…booo! but still, I’m #rocknroll baby!

So rather than bombard this blog with a zillion feminist posts a week I thought I’d condense it down into one bite size weekly post, because you know, not everyone gives a shit and that is fine. If you’re just here for the meme’s, I’ll keep em’ coming.

Please feel free to send me anything interesting that you think I would like or,  just post it on the facebook group found here

First up, the ever wonderful Laura Bates with this great article about “can you have a feminist wedding ?”

feminist bride laura bates

I’d love to hear thoughts on this one as I am often asked my views on marriage, but that is a completely different blog post ( great avoiding of the whole marriage issue there BP, keep it up! ) I’ll also throw in this article from the guardian about men wanking not being that uncommon in public ( I can confirm, it isn’t) Connect more with Ms bates on her everyday sexism project.

Females and science is the topic of the day this Sunday in Southbank ( 29th June) 12 – 3pm. If these ladies are the first people you think of when you hear the phrase “female scientists” –

There is an interesting article over on bitch media about these loveable big bang theory ladies.

Btch flcks did a great article on one of my favorite tv shows from my formative years, “Hey!Arnold”  about how bold it was without being preachy on inner city life.

Social commentary about women’s magazines

This has been featured literally everywhere, but a very interesting experiment regrading being “global beautyand international photoshop “skillz” ( term used lightly) was released this week

Woman Photoshops Her Headshot To Portray The Standard Of Beauty In 25 Different Countries (Photos)

The new statesman featured an interesting article on sex positive feminism and my, wasn’t it thought provoking!

#freethenipple got some more back up in the form of this fantastic bikini top…WANT!

tata top 1

This advert moved me in ways I didn’t think marketing could –

Still contrived though ( I work in marketing, trust me I’d know)  but hey, if it works for feminism, why complain?

I’ll end this weekly round up of interesting reads with this great video one of the boys posted on his facebook feed the otherday. Won’t lie, loved it!

You rant lady, you rant your heart out! –

Become her friend here.

Look Bbz I get it myself, feminism is bloody confusing and can feel like a minefield. I really, really hear you. I get sniffed at by other so called feminists all the time but what I know is just read, think and decide where you stand before you start to worry about all the other opinions out there and just try to be helpful..and not preachy. No body likes a soap box hog.

Until next week BBz <3

Love,love, Bunnypudding X x
