This looks amazing Vanessa! My BFF committed suicide 4 years ago so it really strikes a deeply personal chord. xo

I'm so sorry about your Bff. I've also lost a friend to suicide and it just sucks. Thank you for checking out the trailer. I appreciate it so much.

In this province half of all women over the age of 15 will experience sexual or physical violence in their lifetime. So this Valentine's Day, why not help end the violence, rather than support a film that glamourizes and normalizes it?

Okay, I'm never going to read or watch this, but from the description at http://www.theatlantic.com/features/archive/2015/02/consent-isnt-enough-in-fifty-shades-of-grey/385267/ it's much worse than I imagined. I didn't realise how far from consensual sex it is. Which leaves me wondering why it's do popular. My best guess is that when you're reading or watching, it can be a thrilling fantasy, as you're not actually giving up control. Experiencing it would be a different thing entirely.
But the average reader isn't getting the nuances of that.

On campus and online, ‘safe space’ efforts to blacklist critics and pathologize disagreement squelch debate

Thanks for posting this ms Hegarty, finally an intelligent acknowledgement of what has been going on for at least 30 years and finally smelling so awful that even the "liberals" can't deny the odor that the rest of us have been putting up with for so long. 
But I would challenge you to go further. What the writer is pointing to is neither a new development for a perversion of "liberal"practices: on the contrary, these practices are the heart of socialism. Unless the so-called liberals come to understand the ideological engine that is driving the democratic and labor parties of the West you will continue to perfume the pig, Why? Because the heart of Socialism is Fascism (NAZI- National Socialism), founded on the fundamental Marxist principle that every thought, word, and deed, is POLITICAL. Therefore it is the function and duty of the government to regulate everything.The universities, where Socialism has its home, is the incubator for what then finds itself into the rest of Society. They are simply testing how far they can go. The "micro-aggression" online tracking system being initiated at Ithica College is just another example of how far this disease has penetrated. Until you completely reject and abandon Progressive Liberalism, you will be encountering this fascist mentality every where you turn. What is happening is not an aberration- it's the objective.
IF you are truly appalled at this you need to stop voting Democrat- the acceptable facade of Socialism in the US- and form counter organizations within the Universities.
Join the Libertarians if you really believe in inclusion and freedom.

While studying at Oxford University, I woke up to find myself being sexually assaulted. That’s why I want an honest and open debate about women’s services, without being accused of rhetorical “violence”.

Well played Grandma, well played.
Mum posted a reminder on facebook today that not only is this weekend the festival of Imbolc and St. Brigit's day but that it is also the source of her mother's middle name. My maternal grandmother was born in 1914 on January 31st. Custom in Ireland at that...
