Aug. 9th, 2018 | 10:18 pm

"What Ms. Freeland and Canada correctly understand is that human rights and basic liberty are universal values, not the property of kings and dictators to arbitrarily grant and remove on a whim"

Trinity Western ruling

Jun. 24th, 2018 | 06:07 pm

"On Friday the Supreme Court of Canada delivered a ruling that many conservative Christians are condemning as an attack on religious freedom and LGBTQ groups are applauding as a robust defence of civil rights and social equality. In a 7-2 decision, the justices concluded that the law societies of Ontario and British Columbia have the right to deny accreditation to graduates from the proposed law school of Trinity Western University (TWU), an evangelical college in Langley, B.C. The court judged that it was “proportionate and reasonable” to limit religious rights in such a case – to guarantee the rights of gay students"

Tegan and Sara on “Money Diaries”

Nov. 10th, 2017 | 11:32 am

"about the bias of the music industry, the importance of high prices, and why they aren't comfortable buying things."
=====
” If a guy got signed to Neil Young’s record label it would be like, “He’s the next Neil Young! Let’s give him a Nobel Peace Prize!”
When Neil Young’s manager signed us to his record label there was so much, “Why them? Oh, it must be because they’re two girls and they’re lesbians and everybody wants to fuck them.” That was the stuff that was said about us and written about us.

an Icelandic woman's take on Hollywood

Oct. 16th, 2017 | 11:48 am

"i come from a country that is one of the worlds place closest to equality between the sexes and at the time i came from position of strength in the music world with hard earned independence , it was extremely clear to me when i walked into the actresses profession that my humiliation and role as a lesser sexually harassed being was the norm and set in stone with the director and a staff of dozens who enabled it and encouraged it . i became aware of that it is a universal thing that a director can touch and harass his actresses at will and the institution of film allows it . when i turned the director down repeatedly he sulked and punished me and created for his team an impressive net of illusion where i was framed as the difficult one . because of my strength , my great team and because i had nothing to loose having no ambitions in the acting world , i walked away from it and recovered in a years time . i am worried though that other actresses working with the same man did not ."

“ORIGO” – JOCI PÁPAI (HUNGARY, EUROVISION 2017)

May. 20th, 2017 | 01:06 pm

======
It’s a song with Hungarian lyrics and a Romani phrase that serves as the chorus, “jálomá lommá, jálomá lommá”.
While “Origo” tackles some tough subjects such as ethnic discrimination and prejudices, it’s ultimately a song of hope. Joci sings of how he finds strength in God, and how he uses his music to connect with people on an emotional level
