This week we have to talk about the tragedy that is Grenfell tower. How it is possible for the refurbished tower block can go up in flames like it did with so many lives lost is totally beyond us, and shouldn't have happened. Our thoughts go out to all the families affected.
Amazon has filed for a patent that would allow it to block access to its own website if you are using the Wifi in one of their shop locations. They don't want you finding the book cheaper online so they will block access or adjust the prices of books to make the shop seem more competative.
States in the USA are working hard to make sure video from police body cameras are kept out of the public domain. In a blow for open and transparent policing in the US some starts are working to make sure only the video they want to release is shown to the public.
This is a worrying trend.
This was a hard one to decide if we should put it out. Religion is something people hold very dear, just as their kinks are important to them. We don't want to offend anyone but this is one we thought was worth talking about.
This is from Victoria Blisse. One day she accidentally outed herself to her reverend. From that point on suddenly we was removed from the board of governers and just generally treated her like crap.
Rightly she left that church and went looking for a church that is more open and welcoming to people of all types and kinks.
This week we need to appologise a little as we missed last weeks episode. Technical problems abound and it just wasn't going to happen. This week there is still technical issued going on but we did at least get the episode out.
We do get a little ranty on politics this week. Not a huge surprise considering the attacks and the general election we have just had. If that isn't your thing then I'm sorry about that but we just can't seem to let it go.
Chav: The demonization of the working class by Owen Jones. While I don't know how biased the author is he does go into a lot of detail on what has happened in British Politics and how one group of people have been specifically attacked for no reason other than being poor. It's a tough read in places but worthwhile.
Last weeks article was written by Emmeline Peaches on how for some Rope Bondage is a form of meditation and can help them release their anxieties. It isn't going to work for everyone but for some it is just perfect.
This week ACoupleOfKinks are talking about how she came out to her partner and what being "bi" meant to her. How she struggled to even realise that is what she was and by reading other peoples accounts she was able to process her own feelings and understand who she was. It is a great read so do check it out on the site.
