Katie Hopkins Tells Women to Quit #MeToo and “Man the F*ck Up”

Whenever Katie Hopkins is mentioned in the news, it’s never for a good cause. Hopkins tends to speak about issues she has no real knowledge of which leaves her looking ignorant. It’s no surprise that she decided to comment on the online movement started with the hashtag, #MeToo’ and give her opinion on it. An opinion, no one asked for. The online movement #MeToo was started in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations. Activist, and

Top Tips for First-Year Sixth Form Students

After getting your GCSE results, the next thing for you to think about, if you decide to further your education, will be sixth form or college. Sixth form seems very exciting at the start, it’s a new environment, regardless of you moving to another school or staying in your current one. The one thing I remember about my run-up to starting sixth form was getting super excited about not having to wear a uniform anymore,

Stop Idolising Online Relationships

It is quite prevalent in this day and age that as individuals we like to live vicariously through the relationships we watch online or on television. Being able to watch people fall in love and watch their life as a just a “normal” couple immediately becomes seen as #RelationshipGoals. What we don’t realize is that although watching these relationships play out online are great for entertainment. It disregards the fact they are far from the

Stop Mixing Family Into Politics

It has come to my attention and probably millions of other people that there are some people on the President of the United States team who are unqualified. One being his daughter, Ivanka Trump. Ivanka Trump is simply a business woman. She graduated from Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 2004 with a degree in economics. Ivanka is a former model, and she’s got her own line of clothing, handbags and footwear.

Meghan Markle Is Her Own Woman

Meghan Markle has been talked about a lot in the news this year because she is dating British Royal, Prince Harry. Due to the fact that she is dating the British Royal, it seems like people have forgotten that she is an actress, humanitarian and activist and should not be labeled as, “Prince Harry’s Girlfriend”. Recently, actress and friend of Meghan, Priyanka Chopra was on the Wendy Williams Show to talk about her new movie, Baywatch.

Is the Controversy Around Macron’s Relationship’s Age Gap Really About Morality or Is it Just Sexism?

As of the 7th of May, Emmanuel Macron was elected the President of France and since then more and more people around me have started talking about his wife Brigitte Trogneux. While in my French class at school, we had been discussing the election and giving our thoughts on Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron and I’ve noticed that besides a few of us looking at the election from a political point of view, a
