The Arches Project – Fine Art exhibition…

The Arches Project are hosting their annual Hidden Talent – Fine Art Exhibiton from the 3rd – 17th of November 2017.

Upcoming or hidden artists can submit their work and have it displayed and available for sale. The charity itself acts as a platform for all types of artists to get their work to a wider audience.

The Arches Project was established to be a community based platform for local artists to showcase their work in various forms such as art, music, short films and performances. Emerging artists can get hands-on experience within the industry and get the exposure they need to be recognised.

“I was unknown, but now I am known through The Arches Project.”

The Arches Project also set up the Disney themed event, Bibbity Bopppity Boop, from my previous blog post.

To contact the organisation about getting your art showcased in this years event, the contact information is shown in the featured image above.

Porn is dangerous…

Most women are no stranger to dealing with creepy men on the internet. I, for one, have had to argue with my fair share, due to the fact that large chested women like me are often seen as nothing more than a nice cleavage to stare into.

I’m used to the comments about my ‘nice tits’ and ‘blowjob lips’, I am no stranger to those. I am not saying that those comments are okay in any way. I’ve just heard them so many times from creepy lost souls who have found their way into my messages that it has now ceased to bother me. These men just seem to think that any woman who posts a selfie on the internet is after their sexual attention… excuse me fellas, I was just having a good eyeliner day.

Although, men seem to think that these comments are okay, I had diluded myself into thinking that men still had some boundaries (even if they are far apart from ours.) To my horror… I received this the other night.

I had dated this guy for a very short time (upon discovering he was a homophobe towards gay men but fetishises lesbians, I really wanted to forget he existed.)  Unfortunately I had made the discovery of his out-of-date attidudes, after sharing a bed with him twice, which is why I felt even worse about recieving this text.

As you can see by the screenshot, I did tell him he was fantasizing about raping me but he tried to justify his actions by claiming he didn’t know it was rape because he had seen it on a porn site.

PORN IS FAKE!!!! Lads, I can’t stress that point enough. Porn is acting, the only reason why it’s not rape on there is because the actress isn’t really asleep. If you were to do something to a woman or anyone for that matter while they were asleep, that is rape. They are not awake to consent.

The porn industry is hugely problematic and does desensitize young people but the guy who was texting me was older than me. He should know better.

So far, in the last few weeks I have seen news stories about a woman who was raped in her sleep by her husband, who recorded it on his phone and a 12 year old boy who raped his 4 year old sister during games of hide and seek, where police had also found porn on his phone. It’s just plain disgusting and shouldn’t happen. Non-consensual sex should not be glorified in any form of media and grown men should know better.

Crime Scenes so close to home…

It’s scary when something deadly happens so close to home. Even with all the police around, you still feel uncomfortable, like the chill of death is just lingering around.Well, last night seemed like an alright night until I woke up to some awful news this morning…

Around 1am, I was disturbed by the flashing blue lights of a police car entering the street and driving down past the allotments. Usually, in my village, the police are out because of the local ‘chavs’ (believe me, even I have made complaints about them before, Had fireworks thrown at me. They missed. Chavs don’t have the best aim).

This morning I woke up to the news that a woman’s body had been found in a blazing car, literally across the road from my house. I can see the crime scene from my bedroom window (featured image).

The event is said to be being treated as unexplained, which makes it all the more frightening.

The victim has yet to be identified in the news. Follow the story on the local news paper here.

The Night

This is beautiful

© The Secret Poetess

The dreamers come out at night to play amongst the stars.

Whilst the demons hide in corners, others in their cars.

Girls wander in the darkness, no older than you were,

Before you knew what love was, when love draped you in its fur.

Puddles lie in gutters with rainbows shining light.

Dip your foot in slowly in case you’re swallowed by the night.

Only poets know the darkness, the time before the dawn.

When love speaks truly – where sorrow is born.

A moment in the darkness, for a life of luminescence.

A night spent awake, for a chance to know your essence.

Sleep can only come for a poetess at dawn.

Even then her sleep can be light, forlorn.

Fret not all those that wander the sleepless valley of night.

It has its moments of deep joy… of desolate delight.

When you listen for the dawn, don’t run…

Punishing kids with parents on low-income…

So I saw this letter from last year doing its rounds on the internet and all I can think… is WHAT THE F*CK is wrong with this country and it’s education system. Seriously… I was in a good mood but now I’m in a ranting one…

Lunch isolation… what even is that? A punishment for the less fortunate kids? Imagining punishing a child because of their families income… as a matter of fact… imagine punishing the family for that? They have no control over it. They earn what they earn and you should be building them up not tearing them down. Imagine how awful that poor child must feel now!

You are teaching schools that lower class pupils are worth less than their higher class friends. You are teaching them that being poor and poverty is a matter of behaviour and not circumstance, how will they ever learn to help those in need if you don’t have the kindness to do the same?

Get a grip British schools!
