  • Pitied and Prettied – That’s How Society Likes Women

    By A Modern Military Mother on April 9, 2012
    ‘The main pillar of every organised religion, with few exceptions, is the subjugation, repression, even the annulment of women in the group.

  • Chickens and Hand Grenades

    By on November 9, 2011
    Chickens and Hand Grenades The first time I ever threw a hand grenade was quite a tense occasion….you are gripped with performance anxiety and quite rightly so! When you throw a cricket ball or a stone, they won’t kill you if you fluff the throw and it drops at your feet. Unfortunately, the L109A1, which came into service in the […]

    By on October 14, 2011
