Earlier this year, I joined Reddit.
I was starting to get bored of seeing the same influencers on Instagram over and over again and I wanted a change. I had been seeing Reddit posts on Twitter and I thought to myself, “Hmm this website looks fun.”
If you’re not a Reddit user, let me give you a brief description of how it works. There are subreddits based on topics that you can join. In these subreddits, people share photos, texts, and videos usually discussing the topic of the subreddit.
There are many fascinating subreddits on Reddit.
There is r/aww, a…
They all tell you: you should have known. You should have seen the signs. But how do you tell them it’s not as easy as they make it seem to be?
Let me be clear.
Red flags are only available in hindsight. If you knew what was happening was wrong, wouldn’t you have stepped back from the relationship yourself?
“You should have known” is victim-blaming. They are putting the blame on the victim and mocking them for not having seen the pattern. This doesn’t solve the problem. Besides them mocking the victim now doesn’t solve the problem either. No one…
“The time is now for childcare, healthcare, and climate action for all. Tax the Rich.” — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
You’ve probably heard about Met Gala whether you want to or not. It’s one of those things that’s famous for being famous. Personally, I think there’s something deeply unsettling about a bunch of rich people dressing up and coming together to party during a pandemic while the rest of us struggle with our jobs and social life.
However, the event is much talked about every year. And one of the things that grabbed attention this year was AOC’s dress. A white dress…
I grew up in a home devoid of love. This is one of the worst ways of growing up because you have no idea what love is supposed to really look like. Since I had no ideal relationship to look up to, I learnt my definition of love from movies, TV shows and magazine articles.
For a very long time in my life, I thought love was all about how we looked. If someone was beautiful, they’d won the lottery of life. I learnt this lesson after reading countless articles that told me being beautiful should be the most important…
The romance genre is one of the most popular genres when it comes to fiction. But sadly, tell someone you enjoy reading books like Twilight or even Pride and Prejudice, you will get people who look down upon you.
Some people think of romance novels as fluffy and shallow, some people even think they are too formulaic and are meant for silly housewives who know nothing about the world.
If you’re one of those people, let me tell you that you are absolutely wrong. Here’s why romance novels deserve a lot more love from the readers.
If you’re someone who…
My life fucking sucks right now.
There’s no other way to put it. Every morning I wake up and I have to sit in my bed for five minutes before actually starting my day. On some days I even go back to bed simply because there is nothing special to look forward to. But I can’t do this every morning. There are bills to be paid, jobs to be done.
Like most people in their 20s, I start my day by scrolling through my social media feeds. I check each and every app and go through the notifications. Even my…
When you hear ‘the wealthiest sex worker’, what kind of woman do you imagine? Blonde? Big breasts? Big butt? If you think such a woman would be the wealthiest sex worker, you are wrong.

It started with a prophecy.
Pradyumna Kumar “PK” Mahanandia was born in a remote Indian village between the rivers and the mountains. According to Indian tradition, as soon a baby is born, an astrologer is called to figure out what kind of life the baby would live.
The astrologer told PK’s parents that his life was going to be different. He foretold that PK was going to marry for love and wouldn’t have an arranged marriage. Marrying for love wasn’t very common back then and even today in many parts of the country, it is rare.
PK was born as…
The sales assistant looked at me in confusion when she saw that the only thing I wanted to buy was a pack of sleeping pills.
I usually always used the self-checkout machines but this was a tiny store so I had to go to the cash counter. I thought she wouldn’t let me buy those pills without a medical prescription but thankfully, she didn’t say anything and just gave them to me.
I left the store feeling relieved. I hadn’t slept properly in months. Tonight I was going to finally sleep. An internet search had informed me that the pills…
Trigger Warning: Discussion of rape, sexual violence, and abusive relationships
Do I let him do this or do I say no, and then that’s it?
He hits me again … this is getting harder to take. My face hurts, it’s screwed up so tight. He strokes me gently and then the blow comes. I cry out again.
“No one to hear you, baby, just me.”
And he hits me again and again. From somewhere deep inside, I want to beg him to stop. But I don’t. I don’t want to give him the satisfaction.
