This is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of The Red Pill Community, it’s also part click bait but mainly the first thing.

I’ve been wanting to write this blog for a while I came across the Manosphere, The Red Pill, MGTOW, PUA et al men on Twitter, Reddit, YouTube and found it interesting/strange because I’ve not come across men like these before. I wondered is this what relationships are like for others? It’s far from my marriage dynamic. …

I’ve come across a number of videos and written pieces on the dangers of Social Media. How dangerous it is spending hours and hours on our electronic items consuming YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.. It’s become as habitual as breathing to check your phone put it down and 30 seconds later check it again, when we know nothing has changed.

These warnings have come from the creators of the social media platforms themselves. …


Quotes from book.

I’m a fan of reading autobiographies I was recommended Mandela’s autobiography by two people I highly respect so I decided to read it. I read it twice, it’s a long book with a lot to say, obviously, looking at the man’s life.

I didn’t know much about Mandela apart from he was in prison for a long time, fought and dismantled apartheid and became president of south Africa. He was an icon of the 20th century. He’s one of the few truly good and inspired leaders of the 20th century.

The beginning

He was born on the 18th of July 1918 in a tiny village in the country. His father was a tribal chief. He had a large family of brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and lived a meager life. He details tribal and clan life that was the historical make up of south Africa and Africans. Naming locations, importance of lineage, traditions and history of battles. …

I chose 40 quotes that stood out to me, there’s many more in the book.

Book review, January 2018.

1. Apart from life, a strong constitution and an abiding connection to the Thembu royal house, the only thing my father bestowed upon me at birth was a name, Rolihlahla. In Xhosa, Rolihlahla literally means ‘pulling the branch of a tree’, but its colloquial meaning more accurately would be ‘troublemaker’. …

We’re living in times of great strife. The Muslim lands are in turmoil. There’s war, bloodshed, oppression, engineered famine, Syria, Myanmar, Yemen, Palestine the list goes on. We’re in a time of many ruthless leaders. We see and feel it and can do very little about it.

Pharoah & Musa peace be upon him (Moses) are the most quoted individuals in the Quran. I’m going to go through 10 lessons where we can take benefit from the life of Pharoah (Ramesses ll).

So this day we shall deliver your body that you may be a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless of our evidences. …

Thank god I wasn’t driving she thought, looking at the traffic.

She wasn’t inconvenienced today.

A woman was walking her children to school when she was hit by a car crossing the road. She was okay, it wasn’t that bad but it was an inconvenience.

To who? to her, to the other drivers trying to get to work, to school, to a meeting, wherever. A busy cold Monday morning commute in London. The driver was obviously shocked and went to help her, he called an ambulance and asked if he could move her off the road out-of-the-way, morning traffic was building up. …

I studied Business in High School, College and obtained my Degree in Business Studies and Management, I enjoy the subject. My family has had their own businesses my whole life so I’ve grown up in an environment of people working for themselves, I also worked from a young age in my father’s store, Pakistanis 😉

There has been an exponential growth of online business activities with more and more people making money online. Either via social media like YouTube, Instagram, Ebay or people self publishing books via Amazon, creating websites and using affiliate links.

The internet has created an opportunity for the masses to create for themselves, have multiple revenue streams and sell to people all over the world. It’s a very different world to my parents and a great opportunity for our generation. …

I wanted to visit Grenfell for a while, the fire happened in Ramadan 2017 and there was an amazing outpouring of support from the community straight away. I decided to wait for it to calm down before I visited the area. I wanted to go at the beginning of the summer holidays but I became ill so i went towards the end. I want to share some reflections of the day.

For those that don’t know a fridge exploded in a flat around the 3rd floor of a tower block of flats which caused a fire that led to the entire tower going up in flames, it’s 24 stories high. …

I’m on Instagram and when I scroll through the main page all I see is half-naked, scantily clad women selling their bodies and sex, it’s like porn quite literally. Okay not literally but certainly for attention and if they’re getting/trying to get paid via Instagram followship numbers certainly increase the more clothes they take off and the more provocative they look. We all know sex sells big time and it’s everywhere.

It really irritates me, I’m on there for cooking and food, I like looking at animal accounts especially wild animal rescues mainly lions and tigers and purchasing products but a lot of what I see on the main page are half-naked women twerking. …

Words, people like to dismiss them, as if they have very little meaning and impact. When in reality they are the essence of our lives and communications.

As people have gleaned by now I met my husband online on a social media website, a chat room, Freeserve to be exact and what plays on my mind even to this day and makes me smirk were the first words we ever typed to one another, it went a little something like this.

He asked me where I was from (living) and i said Cardiff, he said “Wow, that’s far” (he had already told me he was from London) and i responded “Don’t worry, it’s not like we’re going to get married or anything”. This was the first time i had ever had an interaction with him. I don’t know what possessed me to say this to a random man on the internet the first time i interacted with him but i did (shrugs). We were not seeking anything at the time. I don’t remember his response, i don’t think he even said anything back certainly not anything memorable…
