I like the idea of Meat Free Mondays. I'm very aware that my deep love of meat makes me shockingly un-green and possibly quite unhealthy.
I just wonder why in a climate that encourages us to think about waste and practise recycling, someone picked the day that traditionally a British household has meat based leftovers from Sunday lunch to go veggie? Shouldn't we be re-using those delicious morsels rather than going to the supermarket for more food we don't really need? It seems like a mixed message to me.
I'll be striking a compromise and going meat free another day of the week. Maybe it won't scan so nicely, but my heart'll be the same place!
I started this blog as a way to talk to myself as I worked my way toward rebuilding my life after experiencing two rapes. Then other people started reading it too and I realised talking about myself wasn't enough and expanded it to having an opinion on everything, especially women and sexual violence. I want this to be a safe welcoming space so please assume all posts need a trigger warning for rape, PTSD, general trauma related crappiness and bad jokes. I'm thrilled anyone reads it and want everyone to feel welcome, including men who may have been victims. I talk about rape from a woman's perspective as that's my own experience, but don't want to exclude anyone who doesn't feel their experience is the same. Feel free to browse or make comments. These are moderated so any apologist crap hits the bin, but not to boost my ego. Anonymous comments or pseudonyms are fine by me since I only blog anonymously myself. Thanks for reading. I do reward you with the odd lighthearted post as well...
