I am delighted to share that as of October 1st I will be starting a PhD at the Digital Cultures Research Centre, University of the West of England, Bristol. Those who know me will no doubt be entirely unsurprised by the fact that my chosen area of study is at the intersection of multiple fields: ...

Now, this stat is not technically incorrect. Lesbian and gay pupils are a subset of LGB pupils, and it's safe to assume (within tolerance) that if 99% of lesbian, gay and bisexual kids hear "gay" used as an insult, then 99% of lesbian and gay kids hear "gay" used and an insult.

With so many people I meet, one of our early (if not first) conversations tends to go a bit like this: They: So where are you from? Me: The short answer is Europe. They: But really, where are you from? Me: *sigh* Born in Bulgaria, legally Austrian, have spent most of my life in the UK now but ...

It's Bi Visibility Day soon and I've been pulling together various "Bisexuality 101" bits and pieces for different contexts. In between all the fluffy, constructive, outreach work I needed an outlet for my snarky side, so I put together a biphobia bingo card. Except I'm physically incapable of ...

It was pointed out to me that I tweet a lot of feminist critiques of pop culture and that some of my followers would like an introduction or 101 of the concepts I use. Be warned: this series of posts will ruin your enjoyment of popular culture forever. You will go back to your favourite movie or ...

Let me tell you about Sasha. Sasha is 18 and goes to high school in California. When Sasha was born, other people decided Sasha was male. Some time over the last 18 years, Sasha started identifying as agender - neither male nor female. Sasha uses "they" as their gender-neutral pronoun of choice.

Dear Joss,. In the interests of full disclosure, I am not a fan of your writing. I am, mostly, not a fan of your writing because you don't tell the kinds of stories that I enjoy. And that's fine - my taste is clearly different to yours, and the world is big enough and full of enough stories for ...

It sneaks up on you, Ada Lovelace Day. I've written about a variety of women as part of this over the years: Eve, Lise Meitner, Caroline Herschel, and my mother. This year, I want to take us slightly further afield - I want to take us to space. Valentina Tereshkova ...

Welcome back to my meandering series on feminist critques of pop culture. In Part 1 we looked at some very crude tests to see if a work of fiction contained any even vaguely realistic female characters at all and were perhaps surprised by how much of our current cultural output fails these basic ...

Apparently I now write fiction. No, I don't know either. http://milenapopova.eu/2013/08/date-whomever-you-like.html
This is a response to Date a girl who reads which is itself a response to You should date an illiterate girl. Dave whomever you like. Date whomever you like: a woman who reads, a woman who writes, a woman who does both or neither. But know, above all, this: It is not about you.
