They are links and blog posts that we found interesting, thought-provoking or newsworthy, rather than necessarily things we agree with, so please don’t take a mention here to mean agreement, or indeed disagreement, with the content.

If you have a link or comment that doesn’t fit anywhere else and would like to share it, feel free to drop it in the comments here.

TRIGGER WARNING: External links are to websites which are not necessarily safe places, and may contain material that some people find triggering. Please use your discretion and approach them with due caution.

We marched against rape and victim blaming in Slutwalk Bristol on Saturday! It was a great event – large and enthusiastic turnout, great response from the people we passed en route, good rally at the end. Event he weather was good. :)
