The mistake.

Cheating is probably one of the most famous topics related to romantic relationships, possibly because we can all relate to it. I would say most adults have either cheated or being cheated on. This is a very emotional topic and it usually carries opinions filled with guilt or anger, depending on whether you are the “victim” or the “perpetrator”. However, not much attention has ever been paid to the third party. The “other” one whom the cheater cheats on with.

In love with love.

I recently had a very passionate argument with my mother. She is getting a divorce after her husband of 31 years -my father- cheated on her, twice. So clearly, she isn’t at her best. After discussing why she had allowed my dad back into her life after he cheated once, she felt deeply attacked and blamed so instead of listening to my argument she said, “well this isn’t actually your problem, your problem is that you aren’t happy because you

Fucking the potential.

Sex on a first date is one of those repeatedly talked about topics. Going on a first date doesn’t come without a bit of drama. You have been chatting to someone and you arrange to have a first date. And here it comes. Nervousness, excitement, fear. We have all read plenty of articles on what to do and not to do on a first date. And most of them cover the topic of sex on a first date. The discussion

Víctima, Superviviente y ahora, mujer valiente.

Victim, survivor and now, a brave woman is the title of this blog post. The victim of the “wolf pack case” in Spain has finally spoken. She hasn’t said one word out of anger or hate but expressed an enormous thankfulness to everyone who has helped her along the way. And most importantly, she has encouraged every woman, man or child that has been a victim of rape to speak out. The wolf pack case In the early morning of

It is rape.

In the past month we have seen the media coverage of two of what could be the most famous cases of gang rape in the UK  and Spain in recent times. The verdict in both of them was equally distressing: not guilty of rape. The reality, however, seems very different: It is rape. The wolf pack case In the early morning of the 7th of July 2016 five men went into the lobby of a block of flats with an

International Women’s Day 2018: is the world finally listening?

Today is the 8th of March 2018. International Women’s Day is annually held to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history worldwide but also a day to continue the struggle for equality. However, this year something seems different: is the world finally listening? Today millions of women around the globe march for their rights, together as a symbol of unity and sisterhood. Women of all ages, background, religion, sexuality, ability, march together to be heard. Women demand an end to all kinds

No means no. Stop means stop.

In the past few weeks, we have seen an increase in media coverage of sexual violence cases. We can observe how our society is reacting to these cases of abuse and violence towards women in a not surprisingly misogynistic way. The reaction we have had proves we still live in a tremendously patriarchal society in which people continue to put pressure on the victims of sexual violence while trying to justify the perpetrators. A few things have called my attention,

Open letter in response to the racist rubbish published after the Barcelona attacks.

Unfortunately, two days ago some terrorists have attempted to destroy our supposedly tolerant, open and democratic way of life, trying to spread hatred and panic among Spanish society. And actually, they have definitely succeeded at spreading hate. From Thursday, I have seen several islamophobic articles published on online news channels as well as people on social media echoing these publications; therefore I have decided to write an open letter to the racist and islamophobic rubbish published after the sad attacks

Carta abierta en respuesta a la bazofia racista publicada tras los atentados de Cataluña.

Desafortunadamente, hace dos días algunos desalmados terroristas han atentado de nuevo contra nuestra supuesta forma de vida tolerante, abierta y democrática y han intentado sembrar el odio y el pánico entre la sociedad española. Por desgracia, hay algo que si han conseguido, sembrar el odio, aún más del que ya existe en nuestra sociedad. Desde el jueves, he visto publicada en redes sociales y periódicos y por tanto me he decidido a escribir una carta abierta a la bazofia racista

Terrorism, vulnerability and Islamophobia.

The lives of 22 innocent people have been taken by a heartless terrorist on Monday night. Terrorism has hit us again and all people seem to be concerned with is whether he was a son of refugees? It seems once more they just want to justify their out of date racist ideas and continue to spread hate and Islamophobia. Perhaps it’s time for all of us to start looking at the links between young people, minorities and radical ideas. We all form
