Life As a Woman Online

I don’t go out very often because I deal with severe social anxiety and depression as a result of my time on the Training Floor and repeated injuries – it often seems as though my entire life is dedicated simply to physio, walking the dog, writing, or sleeping – but when I do go out, […]

The Threads of Trade

Today I went into town and went shopping, as per my regular MO.  I am looking into work and moving, and rather than have to bring boxes in and out of my rather cramped space more than once, I decided instead to buy another trunk to put my things in, which ran me $30.00 at […]

Another Rendition 

So it’s like 3 am and I’m thinking about torture, black sites, abolitionism, the Dark Web, and trying to figure out how to fund a life. It’s dark except for my smoke and the cell light here in Stormcage, just the way I like it, and all I can hear is The Hum.  They’ve been […]

Business Idea Two – Video Game

I saw the introduction to what looks like an amazing feminist video game; based in a “developing” nation (? under sharia law) a princess in imprisoned by her own council, escapes, and returns to restore herself to the throne just to abolish the monarchy.  Princess Demolishes Monarchy Theoretical Game  (Please note this game coder recently […]

Inside the Birdcage – October 14, 2015.  The Red Shawl and RedDRESS Projects and the Niqab Debate 

Mmm. The niqab debate has sparked an intriguing ripple in Canadian society, with a moment by afoot to vote mummer style; that is, wearing facial coverings, as a form of quiet civil rebellion against our increasingly draconian security measures. I can get behind this!   #FallFashion #WhenIsAScarfAFashionStatememt        Meanwhile, I’ve been participating in the #RedShawlProject […]

Pest Management

My mom asked me today if a story about the D’aash destroying the Qabba – the black stone at Mecca that pious Muslims go on pilgrimage to at least once in their life as part of hajj, or the spiritual journey, prescribed by Mohammed. Wish I could say for certain. It’s interesting to note that […]

Strategies for Defeating the D’aash

The D’aasch narrative – that the Caliphrate will expunge the Western Devil and bring back a form of lasting peace to the Middle East through the interpretation and implementation of Sharia law is best countered through a well constructed humour and education campaign rather than through brute force and desperation. Supporting pivotal figures like Malala in the media as rallying points for the Abrahamic spirit of the Jihadi warrior will be encumbent, as will the diversion of financial investgators and social engineers and disruptors.

Psychology of a Caliphrate

During the reign of the Aztecs, a sun-worshipping artisan/warrior/merchant empire — and of the Egyptians, Hyssoks, Assyrians, Acadians, ertc – a caste system has always developed in which a plutocracy develops which directs the lives of those underneath them, which is then financially supported by the warrior slave caste and then by the merchants/artisans.

To understand the D’aash only in the limited terms of a barbarian culture is to deny them the rightful respect that should be due to a fanatical spitually driven warrior culture capable of changing the international narrative.
