Hatshepsut - female pharaoh in Egypt


Hatshepsut was a female pharaoh during the New Kingdom in Egypt She ruled for 20 years in the 15th century B.C, which made her the longest reigning female pharaoh in Egypt and she's is considered one of Egypt’s most successful pharaohs. She inaugurated a long peaceful era, due to a long and prosperous reign and focused on ensuring economic prosperity and building monuments rather than conquering new lands. It's also very fascinating that women were treated nearly equal to men in ancient Egypt.

One thing men don't seem to get is that misandry annoys. You get annoyed by my posts. You feel offended. You're mad that I say "all men" and you feel singled out even though I haven't mentioned your name personally. Yet you still have to make it about yourself. This all comes down to misandry being nothing but annoying to men. All whilst misogyny kills.

To clear things up, I am aware that women are also capable of killing. Now you don't have to feel the need to mention it. However, there's a difference between these killings, which is random acts of violence (from women) and systematic oppression (from men). And that's a big fucking difference.

Because when women "hate men", the worst thing that happens is that women stay away from men or perhaps, they express their hate for them, either way, misandry annoys. On the other hand, misogyny kills because men feel entitled and are socialized to be violent. Society has cleared the path for men to be superior and do whatever is necessary to get what they want. That is why women are at fault for mens violent acts committed against them. That is why rape victims are turned to perpetrators. That is why a woman's choice of dress or beverage is more serious than a man's violent actions.

Misogyny kills.

Come to think about it...I've never discussed the environmental and health impacts of nuclear waste. That which stems from making nuclear weapons and from nuclear facilities. I saw a short segment of it on Last Week Tonight and I had to share. He mentions that 1 out of 3 Americans live within 50 miles of nuclear waste. That's insane. He also points out that the U.S. has enough nuclear waste to fill “one football field, 20 feet high." And that’s just the byproduct from nuclear power plants, not including nuclear weapons.

Nuclear waste poses a serious threat to public health. For decades people have been storing nuclear waste in poor maintained facilities and even dumped an immense amount in the ocean. There's still no agreement of where to store the nuclear waste and the smallest leak could be catastrophic. By delaying a long term solution will have disastrous consequences on our health and the environment.

I had a discussion about rape a few weeks ago and I got a comment from someone who told me “then you should go to Sweden”, given that Sweden seems to be called “the rape capital of the world”. It was kind of funny because I actually was in Sweden when he wrote that…
Anyways, let’s clear a few things about Sweden being the so called “Rape Capital”.

1. In terms of defining rape, Sweden’s definition of rape is broader than any other country in the world. Meaning that, what other countries consider to be sexual harassment, Sweden considers it as rape.

2. This might probably be the most important point to consider - less than 20% of rapes and sexual assaults are reported. Which brings me to point…

3. The difference between Sweden and other countries is that more women have the courage to come forward and report the rape - hence why the number is so high in Sweden. Which is only a good thing because that shows that women are brave enough to report the crime. More reports = higher numbers. Got it?

4. It’s not like every rapist in the world lives in Sweden, but that people in Sweden actually report the crimes. Unlike the US for example, where most women are scared and unbothered to report. NOT because they lack courage but because rape isn’t taken seriously enough. Remember Brock Turner? Because in the US (probably even in Sweden) the rapist gets to play the victim and the whole “investigation” leads to the single, most important question of all time…”but what were you wearing?”. Due to constantly being questioned about “what you were wearing, were you drinking, were you alone”…women stop reporting the crimes because it’s distressing, disgusting and degrading.

5. A rape culture exist and people do not feel safe enough to report the crime. That’s why it’s so important to speak up and identify the rapist.

So will global warming be the death of us or world war three? Because it seems to me that if global warming doesn't kill us first, we will kill each other. With all the shit that is currently going on in the world, how are people not freaking out? Relentless and ongoing terrorist attacks, white supremacy breaking loose, Trump as a president, bombs exploding here and there, droughts, global warming etcetera etcetera.

There are literally protests to condemn nazism and white supremacist. Protests - because we live in a world where the president doesn't condemn their acts. Is history repeating itself? Are we going back to slavery, the Holocaust, or Civil Rights movement…? No we're fucking not. But we have a fucking president who "sees the side" of white supremacy. And to all the people who participate in those rallys. . .I mean if that's not the most fucked up thing in the world. . .These are acts of violence. Nazis aren't angels walking on sunshine - they're terrorist. We had a fucking war about this and it didn't end well. How the fuck are we not condemning and stopping them? It's down right outrages.

Am I the only one who is concerned? The shit that is happening in the Middle East will soon enough start happening here. Or will we all be under water by then?

Am I the only one who finds it funny when men get offended over feminism? It’s almost humiliating how men get offended by words and actions that encourage women to have equal rights and feel safe.

But no, instead they get offended by female-only events. Because it’s not like women walk around thinking about unwanted sexual advances, having their drinks spiked, being physically overpowered, raped and murdered? Right? Because that’s completely unreasonable to fear?

While women are fighting the patriarchy, men are fighting women. Here’s what they don’t understand; fighting the patriarchy doesn’t get men raped or killed. It might offend the weak and pathetic who desperately try to make the situation about themselves.

So get over yourself — if your name isn’t mentioned then why are you crying? There are bigger problems out there than your hurt ego.

Somehow it doesn’t offended them that men rape and murderer women, but as soon as women say “all men” hell breaks loose.
What’s worse: offending men or raping women? And no, whatever women say and however they say it, men will find a way to make it about themselves and cry out for being unjustly treated. And it’s sad, because we are socially conditioned to express our opinions in a certain way that doesn’t ‘offend’ men. Because everything has to revolve around them.

“Oh no don’t say all men”, “don’t have female-only events”, “stop being against us” — we are against the patriarchy, not every single man on earth. It’s absurd and ridiculous to have to explain this to some men over and over again. How is it that every single man in MY life gets it?!

It’s very simple. Stop making every issue about yourself. Stop getting offended over nothing. And stop crying. Instead, use your privileged voice to speak out against the heinous crimes that women face everyday. Because frankly, men are in the best position to make a change. It’s sad but it’s the truth.


The day men fear unwanted sexual advances, having their drinks spiked, being physically overpowered, raped and murdered — then and only then are you allowed to get offended.

I just posted about Barcelona...yesterday. And today on my way to work I find out from a friend(who is in Barcelona) that a terrorist attack happened on Las Ramblas. I am at a loss for words. Insensible, cruel and heartless people.

The attack took place on one of the most crowded places in Barcelona. So far, 13 people have been killed and dozens injured after a van ran over a crowd.

When will these atrocities come to an end - more specifically when will the governments start to act and actually do something that will put an end to this very common tragedy. What number is this now? Because I have lost count of how many cities have been impacted and how many precious lives have been taken away for nothing. From evil, corrupt, monsters who quickly and gladly take on the blame for killing innocent children, women and men.

Let's get clear for a second and acknowledge that people are being killed over different beliefs - in the name of god. I condemn this barbarism and the scum who are capable of killing anyone with cold blood without so much of an ounce of remorse and in the name of their god. You might believe that all religions are peaceful, but religion allows for people to have their own interpretations - just because it is an ideology and belief system, people can interpret these holy books however the fuck they like. Well. . . is god here to tell you otherwise? No. Religion might not cause every single person on earth to commit these atrocities, but it sure as hell isn't stopping anyone.

Somewhere in the world people are freezing to death, while others are burning. This is only the beginning. Extreme weather patterns are bound to happen. Even though some climate deniers happily state that global warming doesn't exist just because some parts of the world are experiencing freezing temperatures - it's just actual signs of global warming. It takes time for the whole planet to heat up, but extreme weather patterns don't take time. Anything will be possible. By that, I mean that, some countries will experience extreme droughts while others will be flooding. Coincidence? I think not. It's because of global warming. And the number one cause of global warming is animal agriculture - how many times is that mentioned on the news? 0. Well, at least I've never heard anyone on the news ever mention that animal agriculture is the leading cause. But it is and if you don't believe me just look at the facts. And the facts clearly show that:

Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation.


Transportation exhaust is responsible for 13% of all greenhouse gas emissions.


Methane is 25-100 times more destructive than CO2 on a 20 year time frame.


Cows produce 150 billion gallons of methane per day.


Even without fossil fuels, we will exceed our 565 gigatonnes CO2e limit by 2030, all from raising animals.


Animal Agriculture is responsible for 20%-33% of all fresh water consumption in the world today.


Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land.


Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction.

Travel reignites a fire within me to go and explore new places. It's different from what I have ever felt and from what I have ever wanted. Even from a young age I never associated success with money. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of “success” - financial success? Career or relationships? Sure, money helps and aids a lot. Society has made money and fame the primarily goal in life and the standard by which we measure someones success.

But here’s the thing, it’s just an illusion. Once you take away all that is external in your life — all that is left is who you are on the inside and how you treat other people. If that was the standard by which we measure success, then ask yourself, how would you be doing?
Success for me comes when my goal is aligned with my soul(if that makes any sense, not sure it does). It is to create a life that I enjoy living. How can I step into my purpose and fully be present in my own life? Without realizing my purpose I would just be floating along pretending that there is meaning in fame and materialism.

I’ve realized that I have a passion for writing about important issues. I have a passion for traveling and exploring new cities and hidden gems. It amplifies and accentuates my reason for being on earth. For having a purpose that goes beyond wanting a house and kids. As far as we are concerned, we only get to live one life. So it is important to fully live in the presence and makes each day count - be kind to yourself and others, the animals and the earth. So where does that leave me?

Ever wondered why a woman's genitals equate to coward, weakness and wimp...? When the slightest flick to a mans balls sends him to his knees, while vaginas can push out entire human beings?

The vagina is continuously used as a metaphor for cowardliness and weakness. But think about it, a vagina can push out another human being, roughly the size of a watermelon. Mind you, without being ripped to shreds - that my friend, is not weakness. That's strength and toughness. Vagina power.

As if women aren't already portrayed as weak, there's somehow a need to make our genitals weak as well? But, what happens when you hit a guy in the balls? Why are balls a symbol of strength while the vagina is a symbol of weakness? Last time I checked, when a guy gets hit in the nuts, he falls to the ground.

I've used the word pussy (and other words) in the past, but once I actually started thinking about what it meant and what it was representing, I stopped. It's sexist and stupid. So next time you say pussy (which I hope you don't), think about the kind of message you are sending to young girls - that having a pussy inherently makes you a coward and weak.

Harriet Tubman - “I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”

Harriet was born into slavery but when she managed to escape she returned many time to help other slaves escape. She played one of the largest roles in the Civil War, as the first woman to lead an expedition. Her expedition liberated numerous of slaves. And I read somewhere that she did all that with a busted shoulder and having epilepsy. After the war, she worked for women’s suffrage by using her experiences and examples of women’s sacfrices to prove women’s equality to men. She also worked with black children and helped them improve their education.

Why is virginity even a thing? The fact that we are raised to believe that having sex means you “lose” something is complete bullshit. No one takes your virginity - it’s just you having sex for the first time.

Virginity is just a social construct that value women as property. Fathers who think they are entitled to their daughters bodies are the scum of the earth. Men who obsess over their “purity” are the creepiest people alive. The concept of virginity is damaging and dangerous. You can’t look at a girls vagina and decide what “kind of girl” she is. The virginity myth is strongest and most dangerous in patriarchal controlled cultures, and it gets many, many girls killed.


  1. Fuck the idea that a woman is only worthy if she hasn’t had sex.
  2. Fuck the idea that women “lose something”, while sex is a rite of passage for men.
  3. And definitely fuck this gross obsession with ‘pure’ virgin women and mens disgusting habit of wanting to be the first to 'ruin’ her.


In case you didn’t know, women are not a commodities or objects for men to defile and deprive. A woman is not defined by a mans standard and touch. Women should not be afraid nor feel the need to deprive themselves of pleasure — for men. Women are shamed and men are rewarded. Men do not face consequences or shame for having had sex before marriage nor do they get judged or killed.

Having sex for the first time is gaining experience and experiencing a different kind of pleasure — you do not lose anything. Your body is your body, so do whatever the fuck you want with it. Don’t let anyone tell you you don’t respect yourself for having sex.

Mr. Butthurt

He’s upset because he’s used to women staying in the kitchen. His feelings are hurt because women everywhere are voicing their opinions. He gets offended when women start expressing themselves - because according to his skewed perception of reality, women belong in the kitchen.

Here we have a boy or a man (both equally as pathetic) attempting to upset and belittle women by making rape jokes just because he got offended. Oh but you see, this weak man isn’t used to women having a voice and expressing her thoughts. This man believes that women ask to be raped and that drinking too much alcohol is her way of inviting strangers to her vagina. Oh but you see, this white man probably lives in his mothers basement somewhere in Missouri and gets off of harassing young girls online. Because anonymity is his biggest forte.

This is a prime example of a fragile, coward man who has nothing better to do than anonymously spread hate and make jokes about rape. Rape isn’t a joke. A man who willingly jokes about one of the most serious and disgusting crimes isn’t mentally stable. Now he might enjoy fooling around online (because lets face, what do you expect from a coward?) but the problem is his mindset. The mindset of many, many men. The idea that women ask for rape and should have themselves to blame.

These comments only serve to prove my point and only motivate me to continue writing about important topics — so thanks basement guy, guess I’m making an impact.

Here’s the thing, your body produces all of the cholesterol you need. You don't have to eat cholesterol to make cholesterol. Great, yeah? All animal products contain cholesterol, some more than others. Even without the shit we pump livestock with, it doesn’t take away from the fact that animal products contain large amounts of saturated fat and dietary cholesterol. These things are all naturally occurring in animal flesh and do cause heart disease and cancer in humans.

But some animals have been labeled as “low fat” and more “healthy — like fish and some parts of a chicken. But they still contain a much larger percentage of fat than plant foods, and it’s almost completely saturated fat and cholesterol.

Our body makes its own cholesterol so we do not need to obtain it from animals. Which begs the question as to why on earth is it considered healthy to eat eggs — which are full of cholesterol that our body doesn’t need?

There is no place in America or the world, for hatred and violence and there should be zero tolerance.
Black people are protesting to stop being killed by police while white people are supposedly “protesting” for white power and supremacy. Can you spot the difference?

I mean look at these faces…literally reminds me of the Purge for some reason. This is white, fascist, uneducated America. And it is not okay. This is absolutely ridiculous and the fact that the system is protecting these people…yikes. Take a second and just imagine if black people were carrying torches on a college campus — the world would flip in a second.

This should be cited for what it really is: domestic terrorism. White people of Charlottesville are marching the streets saying that people of color don’t belong here. It’s not called freedom of speech when it gets others killed. I know people would like to think that this all started when the orange asshole came to presidency, but hatred, fascism and racism has been here longer than him. Trump might have made the bigots feel more welcome but the struggle that black people faced and have been facing didn’t arise from Trump, it’s been here. And with a “president” like him, it’s not going away.

The sad truth is that American was built on white supremacy and denying the truth is a big fat insult to the people who have always been victims of that history. There’s no stopping both sides, there’s only one side that needs to be stopped and it’s the white side. What happened in Charlottesville was a white nationalist terror attack. Period.

How come people loose their shit as soon as I utter the words "animal agriculture"? Coca Cola sells 100 billion non recycled plastic bottles a year, but no one bats an eye. No one cares that Nestle is stealing water. And apparently there's no connection between the drought and livestock production. But as soon as animal agriculture gets blamed and accused...everyone looses their minds. So let's get into it, shall we?


The connection between water and livestock production
The reason that the water footprint is large for livestock is because an immense amount of water is used for their production. The first has to do with the animal itself and the amount of water that they consume to hydrate. The second, the field crops that are fed to livestock, require huge amounts of water. Third, it takes vast amounts of water to wash excrements off( blood, grease, poop etc)

That being said, you would save more water by not eating a pound of beef than you would by not showering for six months!

Here is why
Animal agriculture is responsible for over 80% of the US water consumption and over 50% of the water goes towards growing feed crops for livestock. About 2500 gallons of water is needed to produce 1 single pound of beef. In the US alone, 5% of the water is consumed by private homes while 50% is used for animal agriculture. Worldwide, animal agriculture uses 20-33% of the worlds fresh water.

The bullshit
So when you take a second to process how much water is consumed by animal agriculture you will realize that you really don't need to take 2 minute showers as you've been told. But, by cutting animals from your diet you can save twice as much, if not more. They don't tell you this though. It's not on the news and you don't see commercials about it. Instead, you see commercials about them selling a new water head that helps save some water, great huh? No.

So, don't stop showering California (and the rest of the world), just stop consuming meat!

1. AVOID DISPOSABLE ITEMS

Planet Earth is starting to look like a garbage can, well actually, it pretty much is one by now. Nearly 10 million tons of plastic gets dumped into the oceans every year. It's poisoning the ecosystem, which in turn poisons us. Due to the fact that plastic isn't biodegradable, but builds up and gets consumed by the marine life. So what can you...

Use refillable water bottles, don't use straws, bring your own grocery bag and avoid packaged goods. Easy right?

2. REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am pretty sure that Sweden is one of the best countries at recycling. Sweden.se even said that "Swedes recycle nearly 100 per cent of their household waste" - which sounds pretty accurate if you ask me. It may sound like a drag, but making recycling a habit will decrease environmental damage. And FYI, America sucks at it.

3. DIET

My favorite part...and probably the most sustainable act one could ever do. Cut out animal products and thrive on a plant based diet. Livestock alone accounts for 51% of greenhouse gas emissions - worldwide. It is the most environmentally destructive industry on the planet and it is killing our animals, lands, oceans and resources. Making a difference has never been easier and the most simplest and effortless way - is to adopt a plant based diet.

Cheese.
Steak.
Ribs.
Shrimp.

This is a list of things I thought of when I said “I could never go vegan”. Look at me now. The smell of steak disgusts me. The taste of shrimp makes me want to throw up. The thought of milk now reminds me of rape. Artificial insemination they call it. Lets be frank, animal agriculture is horrific.

I’ve been there. Most of us have. You think you can’t live without meat or cheese. But you can. It didn't take much effort for me to make the change. I saw the reality of what the animals go through; the pain and suffering. I learned about the environmental impacts of animal agriculture and what it is doing globally. And I read about the health impacts of being on a meat diet versus a plant based one. So, diving into it with an open mind made it very easy for me to make the more ethical, moral and sound choice.

People think of a plant based diet as the end of the world. But they're wrong. You can still enjoy your hamburger, pizza, burrito - but, with zero cruelty, zero destruction and zero guilt. With the superb addition of it being great for your health. Not having to worry about what you eat and how much you eat. Because a plant based diet is about filling your body with healthy foods. An abundance of it, as you are not limited on a plant based diet.

I just came across this article of Taylor Swift being involved in a sexual assault lawsuit? Has this been on the news lately? I for one don't watch anything celebrity related nor do I really listen to Taylor's music, however, after reading about the case I am very surprised that more celebrities aren't standing up for her. Whether you like her or not, Taylor is currently on of the most influential celebrities and she is standing up for women everywhere. She is countersuing the asshole (suing her for $3 million) that sexually assaulted her by groping her ass and by doing this she is showing that it is important for victims of sexual assault to come forward. By the way, she is suing for $1 because to her, this isn't about money. This isn't about whether you’re a fan of hers or not, but what she’s fighting for right now. She is proving that women should not have to accept sexual harassment.

Because the fact is that sexual harassment is a real problem that happens every single day. It's not a compliment nor a privilege to be groped by men. It's disgusting and degrading. This behavior is not acceptable and men do not have special access to a woman's body. They do not have the right to grope or touch a woman without her consent. This is a big fucking problem yet people dont' take it seriously? I mean what the fuck, how hard is it to fucking fathom the problem. Women are conditioned to expect and accept this kind of behavior from men, as if it is inevitable. I’m disgusted by how men assume the right to women's bodies.

Egyptian Queen of the 14th century BC

Let's start this series with Nefertiti - prom queen of the ancient world. She was known for her bust and beauty, but she was more than just a pretty face. She was the wife of an Egyptian pharaoh and together they decided to change the religion, art and culture of Egypt. So they started a religious revolution by rejecting gods in favor of exclusive worship to Aten. They've been thought to be the most prosperous and rich in Ancient Egyptian history - and Nefertiti alone, has been argued to perhaps have been the wealthiest queen in Egyptian history. Most importantly, Nefertiti was her husband's equal and held the same amount of power.

Can we talk about the term "friend zone"? I've written a post about it in the past...but a couple of days ago I heard some guys talk about getting "friend zoned". More specifically, he went on to say "I do everything for her and she still keeps me in the friend zone." And guess what, I wanted to explode. Here we go again, a couple of assholes believing they have first class access to women just because they're nice and if they get rejected they call it getting "friend zoned". More like thinking you have special access to a woman's vagina, because god forbid you were nice. Is male kindness really so alien to us? Is being a nice guy so fucking hard, they automatically expect to get rewarded?

The problem with the term "friend zone" is that a (nice) man believes he deserves a woman's body. It is used when a man considers himself to be more than a friend and he uses the term to describe the unjust situation he finds himself in. "But oh why, why am I so nice to her and all she does is treat me like a friend". See the problem? Being nice and respectful to women shouldn't come with the expectation of getting pussy. Being kind and respectful to women is...pretty fucking self evident...? Moreover, women are objectified and regarded as trophies; a price because you've been nice. I will finish with this amazing, on-fucking-point quote:

"You think getting friend zoned is bad, imagine your creepy male friend thinking you owe them sex".

In essence, there's nothing complex about rape. If you rape someone, you deserve to die. There's nothing more to it. But taking a step back and looking at why rape is such a complex issue for society and why there's such a stigma around it, will shock some. Or not. Perhaps you already know. After all, we're all living in this man dominated world, what else is shocking?

To being with, our society already has difficulties sentencing rapists and placing the blame on them 100%. Why is that? Why is violence towards women seen in such a weak and pathetic manner? Only when a crime against women affects men, will there be justice - and this was the case many years ago (but also today in some countries). Let's get into it.

Sexual violence isn't really consider bad or heinous, it's more the first part, relating to sexual. Because women can't be sexual creatures. This has been established by men since the beginning. In fact, I'm not even sure women can own their sexuality without being labeled as sluts. This is a very important consideration, because it ties into why we considers rape such a heinous crime in the first place.

Rape was never a crime committed against women. It still isn't - it's a crime against men. Because in the first place, rape affects our patriarchal society and its attitude towards female sexuality. Back in the days (as I would like to believe) women were a man's property. And a man's property was valuable and pure. But when a man's property was violated, he was stolen and disgraced. The property was then shamed, broken and dirty.

So this brings us to 2017 - where rapists gets sentenced to three months in jail for violating a woman. Where rapists get sympathy. Where victims are asked what they were wearing and how they possibly asked for it. Who asks to be raped? When we're sleeping, walking, talking, drinking or dancing, are we asking to be raped? Are we asking to be violated? To have our clothes ripped off, hands around our necks, forced, painful penetration and bodies mutilated? No. Once upon a time, rapists were hanged. Might not have been in women's favor, but they were still hanged. Today, they walk free. Society has allowed them to walk free because women have no say and our bodies aren't worth anything except when it belongs to a man.

Men have never suffered through this "value" judgement. Nor do they suffer for being sexual creatures, promiscuous or having sex with many women. This is why some countries still allow rapists to marry the victim. Because hey, at least you'll still keep some of your honor if you marry the man who spoilt your value. The judgement is and was always against the woman. That is why rape towards men is seen as more heinous. More damaging. Hurtful. Wrong. Because ultimately, its the shame of being treated like a woman.
