ethiopienne: white feminists will come out of the woodworks to defend a white woman whom WoC had the audacity to call ugly, going on and on about how calling other women ugly is anti-feminist and counterproductive to “the cause” but what are y’all saying to magazine editors when they…

Is Love socially constructed? →
Warning: Love in construction - Sarah Hall It’s the four-letter word that makes the world go round, love. We may all have an idea of what love is and the many forms it comes in; a mother and child, a brother and sister, husbands and wives, teenagers and the internet, the combinations are endless. But is romantic love even real, or just something that has been socially constructed?

dontfeedthejournalists: If you’re reading this, it’s likely because you follow me on Tumblr, and because you’re on Tumblr, you’re likely on a whole host of other social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook. And if you’re on either of those two, you probably have seen boatloads of marriage equality posts. You’ve…

For all the stuff I can’t post on this work promotion blog!
Keep your eyes fixed on Allié. Our writer Johnny is working on a piece regarding the trans community. I’ve just seen his interview with Joe, someone who is gender neutral. The write up needs to be produced so I can’t give an exact date on when it will go live, but it will be soon!
albinwonderland: I have a little side blog now, called Super Ladies: Missing. It’s dedicated to showcasing the Super Hero/Comic merch that fails to include their female characters. Submissions are open, so if you’re out and about and come across something take a picture and send it to us! Online merch is dandy too.
Editing stuff for Allié! We’ve got some really good features on the way. Sarah has written a piece discussing whether or not love is socially constructed and Holly has done a piece on cervical cancer screening. I’m just struggling with images at the moment. Stock photos are getting expensive and Flickr Creative Commons is a total mine field sometimes! Check out our current features...
I have a news day on Friday for Quays and I’m not really looking forward to it. It’s hard to prepare for something like that. I know I’ll end up doing something crime related due to the nature of the area. There seems to be a mini crime wave going on at the moment with theft and I’ve got a few people in mind that I can interview. There doesn’t seem to be any charity...

Hi :)! I’ve been on Tumblr looking for new blogs to follow. I really only use Tumblr to post pretty pictures (I won’t lie). However, I’m trying to change! Can anyone recommend any good writers/journos on Tumblr to follow?

I’m considering writing a piece for alliemag.co.uk on pro-ana blogs. I have a family member who has been through an eating disorder, but I’m not keen on mixing work with family, therefore I’m looking for someone else to interview. Would anyone be willing to share their story? 18+ only!! I can email/skype/phone interview. I don’t expect anyone to meet! This would be...
I'm sort of back - ish?
Apparently it’s awfully rude of me to get my ex-flatmate/future housemate addicted to Tumblr, then completely abandon ship. I’m sorry! Where the hell have I been? Uni took over my life I started my own online magazine! Alliemag.co.uk My flat has become a vacuum of any form of emotion - dramatic? Yes, but it’s still awful. I’m moving into my new place in 115 days though!...
