@laura__palmer I think too, a lot of women just don’t realise at the time either. It’s only now I’m in my 30s I look back at incidents as a teenager and realize it was sexual assault. 

But you’re right, it’s just not reported. I was speaking to a male in my life recently after Evan Rachel Wood spoke up about Marilyn Manson. His response was “why didn’t she leave?”. This came from a male who I thought was an ally and it made me realize how far we still have to go. When we speak out it’s always our fault somehow.

Ok so in commenting on this I’m admitting I watched.... but, one thing that really fired me up was Mike “apologizing” for Heidi being upset by his comments. No mate, apologize for YOUR toxic behaviour, which caused pain. Not Heidi’s reaction.

I’m so happy she won! She uses her platform for so much good. People really need to get over their disdain for strong women.

I have had this conversations with my friends with boys several times. What starts as a 6/7 year old making comments or forcing an unwanted hug on a friend... can and will turn into an adult male who thinks he’s entitled to force himself on a woman and speak to her like she’s trash. UNLESS it’s stamped out early and used an an opportunity for discussion and teaching.  

If I hear the phrase “it’s just boys being boys” or “Aw it’s just harmless fun” one more time, I will lose my mind!

While everyone’s situation is unique... I can’t help but wonder what is this teaching the kids?

That a loveless relationship is fine? That a woman should put everyone’s else’s needs and feelings ahead of her own?

There’s a lot of excuses being made in this article. Sometimes it’s best to just own the fact you’ve behaved in a way that’s not ideal and apologize. 

It’s ok to say to a friend “I’m really sorry, I don’t have the mental capacity to provide the support you need”.. and then check in when you can. Because you’re 100% right, you can’t pour from an empty cup. But to just ultimately ghost with little explanation is hurtful.

Here’s hoping this is finally the end of his career and we never have to see him again.

Jamie called channel 10? The same channel 10 he’s taking legal action against?

They absolutely nailed this show. I definitely recommend.

How the hell is an awards ceremony given the ok to go ahead during a pandemic?!

Wait, so a couple of days after what was basically a one (two) night stand... you were spying?

This just shows everyone has different tastes.

Every season there are a handful of women who seem genuinely confused that there are other women in the mansion?!

To be fair, over those albums she’s also aged what... 15 years? I’m definitely not the same person I was 15 years ago!

I really enjoyed this book. It left me wanting another down the track to see where they’re all at.

I would love this! She’s brilliant.

Cass is coming across as a real mean girl. Some of her comments have been awful. 

mamamia-user-649450993 June 6, 2020

I understand why she’s hurt, I would be too! Doesn’t excuse the way she’s acting though.

ISO has definitely taught my I can stretch out any appointments! I was a regular 4 weeks on the dot for brows, but I can do 2-3 months now I know how to tint myself. 

Embracing balayage also means hair appointments can wait too.
