Some reflections on the male gaze.

No, I am not a sight, I am a presence. I am a presence that is seen on occasion but, most of the time, is felt. And the person who feels it the most is me. So, I hope this mindset will help me ignore the surveyor even when he continues to survey. I can give up on trying to expand my field of vision to include myself.

Attraction to the emotionally stunted man: constructing a fantasy.

Fantasies are not apolitical. Whilst not all aspects of fantasies are translated into real-life relationships, fantasies are an important facet of our understanding and expectations of romance. We all deserve healthy emotional romance, and so we must be self-aware in the way we fantasize.

What to Consider When Choosing a Degree Subject

Any quick Google search will tell you that choosing your degree subject is a super important decision. Whilst that isn’t necessarily wrong, it’s also not the be-all and end-all that it can sometimes feel like.
