Looking for a Small Lady's Bicycle

Today I am going to look for a second hand 15" frame ladies bicycle with mudguards, basket and lights.

I want a simple one as I need to learn how to ride but once I can ride properly I will buy a new one.

It is very hard to find such a small bicycle.

Trying to find a Warm Nightie

I am not used to how cold London can get so I decided to buy myself some warm nighties.

It was quite hard to find real nighties rather than onesie or pajamas, I had to walk around Kingston until I found some nice warm nighties.  Eventually I found some very cosy nighties in Primark :) so they were very low price as well !

Why are you so scared of Foreigners ? Xenophobic Hysteria in the UK

I would like to move on the no taxation without representation issue, EC and others are here paying taxes and do not have the vote in national elections.
We pay taxes so we should be able to vote, if we could vote the politicians would suddenly want to be our best friends.
Why not deport British citizens who claim benefits not just to cheaper parts of the UK but to cheaper countries. Any Brit who can't pass the UK citizenship test, and/or is some sort of liability could be deported to "residential care and education centres" in Morocco or Bangladesh or wherever. 5 years on benefits in the UK and you will be designated UK Citizen (Restricted Residence) meaning you have to be live in an overseas UK residential area without rights to reenter the UK without a guaranteed job etc... For every unemployed, unproductive Brit you pay to live in a cheaper country you can give that country a visa for a well-educated young person to live and work in the UK.
Why do I think that IDS has already thought of this and is just try to think of a way to spin it to the UK ?

Sex Work Quotes

If nobody wants to sell sex, it is a crime to force anyone to do so. But when men or women do want to sell their bodies, they should have that full right without encountering punishment or discrimination. If the client behaves decently, the relationship between the sex buyer and the sex seller must be considered a purely private transaction.

Prostitution is not just a service industry, mopping up the overflow of male demand, which always exceeds female supply. Prostitution testifies to the amoral power struggle of sex.... Prostitutes, pornographers, and their patrons are marauders in the forest of archaic night.
CAMILLE PAGLIA, Sexual Personae

When prostitution is a crime, the message conveyed is that women who are sexual are “bad,” and therefore legitimate victims of sexual assault. Sex becomes a weapon to be used by men.

MARGO ST. JAMES, San Francisco Examiner, Apr. 29, 1979

Paid Sex as Violence ... Again :(

Paid Sex as Violence

The above link is to an article that is a very sad and pathetic attempt to suggest that the violence that is experience by some Sex Workers is somehow related directly to them supplying paid sex and not because they are compelled to work in criminalized and stigmatized environments were abusive people feel able to abuse sex workers.

"Despite frequent reports of prostitutes being trafficked, enslaved, raped or beaten..." No one asks why they are so vulnerable compared with MEPs ???

Women with labour rights and protections can resist abuse so when people deny us rights why should they wonder that abusive people take advantage of the rights lacuna created by bad laws and poor policy ???

I should able to sell sex as safely as MEPs talk and talk in Brussels and if I can't, I think the MEPs should work to enable me to sell sex safely and not blame women's sexual labour for the reason they are abused. 

That is the same as blaming women's clothing for rape !

I am going to start posting regularly on here

I have decided twitter doesn't let me properly discuss or consider my thoughts and ideas about my experiences in the UK. So I am going to start writing this blog.

One of the first things that surprised me in the twitter world is the amount of fighting about "ideas" and how little room there is to celebrate and accept differences. I was really amazed to read about transwomen and ciswomen and all sorts of other women fighting about who is "real" woman.

I also read so many people didn't accept that Chelsea Manning is a woman !

How is it possible that someone's gender identity can only be determined by their genitalia and/or chromosomes ?

Such identity is a truly spiritual matter that is determined by someone's inner being not by their genitalia.
