self portrait 2015My name is Marianne Cassidy and I’m a writer from Ireland. This blog is a home for my personal essays, pop culture analyses and political rants. Common themes include gender, feminism, digital culture, nerd stuff, sex , body image, dating and reproductive rights. I also post semi-regular link farms.

My feminism is a lifelong learning process and strives to be intersectional, body positive and sex positive. I am interested in feminism as a tool for dismantling oppressive systems, as opposed to helping a small number of privileged women access established positions of power.

All opinions expressed are my own, except those expressed by commenters, which are their own.
