The Curse Of Facebook Popularity

Someone very close to us recently said to Boaz, 'Each time I post a picture of myself on Facebook, I get over 600 likes, but when I post about my business, I don't get any likes at all.

Why A Woman Should Never Leave Her Husband For Cheating

I don't think a woman should ever leave her husband because he has cheated. That should never be the only reason for her to walk away. When a man is a good provider. When he shows his wife respect.

Black People Are The Better Race

Dear Munroe Bergdorf. You are the woman who recently got fired by L'Oreal for saying this, "All white people are racist.

If Only I Had Kate Middleton’s Privilege

If only I had the privilege of Kate Middleton, today I would be on baby number 10. Kate's third pregnancy is such big news not only because she's a royal, but because we now live in a society where just 'three' children are considered a lot for a young couple. There are already debates online … Continue reading If Only I Had Kate Middleton’s Privilege

John Lewis Genderless Agenda Is Child Abuse

Yesterday I woke up to the horrifying news that John Lewis had become the first major UK retailer to remove ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ labels from its children’s clothing range. Apparently, this is to avoid 'reinforcing gender stereotypes'. Instead, new genderless labels that say either ‘Boys & Girls’ or ‘Girls & Boys’, are on all own-brand … Continue reading John Lewis Genderless Agenda Is Child Abuse
