The first link is probably my favourite and may even spark my own post later on. I have thought long and hard about having children, like most 20-somethings, and the responsibility it entails, especially if you have a girl. Lessons to a 21st century girl beautifully sums up everything I would want for my own daughter and, in ways, my son.
My sister is an NHS nurse and people who have spent a decent amount of time with me (or one unfortunate conversation) have learnt to not complain, whinge or moan about the National Health Service around me. Just don't. It's a bit like Harry Potter or religion, I completely respect your opinion and your right to hold that belief, but I wholeheartedly disagree. This post from an American doctor visiting to the UK is perfect.
I'm not really into politics, and by that I mean that I feel there is very little choice between the main parties and it's always easier to get in than stay in because the grass is always greener. (By the way I always vote, and will always do so) This post about 11 female MPs is something that I love though. Sexism isn't OK is any line of work, especially with the people responsible for running our country. Equality will only ever make people, cultures, countries and governments stronger. Sorry Austin.
As I've said before, I'm not religious and have a number of problems with things done under someone else's name. However, most of my family is and I have no issue with you having faith. Though this video from The Last Leg shows exactly what is wrong with mean people who happen to be religious. I'm loathed to give them any more publicity but the line 'A person died, his family are mourning, it's not about you dickhead' is too good not to share. As well as 'And just when you think there's a chance he might let you in, God will look back and say not only do I love fags but I fucking hate dicks'. Adam Hills, you're a legend.
