Under the category ‘intersectional feminism‘ I would like to write about all forms of oppression. Starting that category, I wrote something about intersectional feminism in general. After that it was time to write something about the general forms of oppression within intersectional feminism. The first subject I wrote about was ableism. Now it’s time to cover another category: racism.

I’m quitting the monthly news flashes

For over two years now, I’ve been writing news flashes. At first weekly, but after 5 weeks that changed to a monthly news flash. I wanted to do something against the negativity that comes with mainstream news, which makes a lot of people feel powerless. But after two years I’ve re-evaluated and I have decided to quit, just before 2023 starts. I’m quitting the monthly news flashes. In this final post of the series I want to explain why.

Documentary: Knock Down the House

Unfortunately, in 2022, women are still underrepresented in politics worldwide. Of course the numbers differ strongly per country, but when I look at my own country I am still very disappointed. In the House of Representatives in the Netherlands (‘de Tweede Kamer’), we currently have 57 women. That’s 38%, because there are 150 seats. Therefore, we need hope. That’s why today I am sharing the documentary: Knock Down the House.

Why sport fishing is unethical

Some time ago I already wrote more about the ethical reasons against fish consumption. That’s all about eating fish or fish products. Today I want to talk about another way in which people abuse fish for no good reason: sport fishing. Maybe it’s a bit obvious that I am against it, as I am vegan and don’t approve eating fish. However, I think it’s always good to explain more about veganism. So, today I’ll tell you why sport fishing is unethical.

Je Geld of Je Leven

Now that I have a full-time job, I have more money than I ever had in my life. I am so privileged that I have a stable income. In this phase of life, most people use that money to buy expensive things for themselves, a car, a house, phones, etc. Most people adapt their lifestyle to their salary. Today I want to tell you about a book that may inspire you to make different choices than most people. Today I want to tell you about the book Je Geld of Je Leven, written by Hanneke van Veen and Rob van Eeden.

Adopting/Fostering Children

This post is quite personal. And while writing this down, I feel quite vulnerable. I don’t know why that is so, since I’ve shared my plans for the future a few times before already. In this letter to my future self I wrote down that I want to be a foster parent, so today’s post is not new. However, I have learned a lot about especially adoption the past years and so I want to share what I know, because I feel like adoption can be harmful if it’s not done right. Here’s what I know about adopting/fostering children. And alongside I will share my personal plans with that.

Why biomass is not a sustainable fuel

This title that I wrote is pretty controversial, because it needs some nuance. And I’ll give that in a minute, I promise. But overall, I dare to say that my personal opinion on biomass is that it’s not a sustainable fuel. In my ideal world we’d need very little to no fuel created by biomass. Today I want to tell you how I came to that conclusion. Here’s why biomass is not a sustainable fuel.
