By Justin Lehmiller What counts as cheating? It’s a question best answered by you and your partner, as you decide together what your rules and boundaries are. Monogamous, monogamish, polyamorous — there are many ways to be happily committed. There are also, it seems, many ways to cheat. Last week, my Twitter feed was flooded with articles on so-called “micro-cheating,” minor activities that stop...

Dying Day…

By Jesse Nashe Songs of a sleeping sky Diminuendo of a dying day I feel my emotions change The orange-red shifts into darkness And so do I Slowly So slowly The clouds wanton across my eyes in their whimsical wisdom Do they ever intend to show me the things they do? Visions of 1000 realities can be birthed from one glance My eyes can dilate in awe of a beautiful dream The...
By Dimo Wa Moraswi Sekele Fail, fear and a shade of shame Drawing from my own experience I think it is only fair that I admit to a great extend that, passing at school was not influenced by a desire to succeed, but a great chunk of fear of failing. I related more to failing than passing and in my mind I...
Another ruined great concept that almost set women free from man’s approval. A few months back the name slay queen had nothing to do with men or their childish egos, it had nothing to do with a man’s money or what he thinks of the name. The word slay queen meant independent women, it meant reaffirmation and reassurance to...
#HandsOffChoiceAssorted Did you hear the story of the guy who broke the decade old age rule in the black community? Well the black society is governed by a lot of unwritten rules that have been in existence for years, some are unstated but that does not mean they don’t exist. As far the elders are concerned, they are legal and...
By Dimo Wa Moraswi Sekele First of all, let me apologize on the behalf of my species to all the women. I am really sorry that you go through hell trying to show us why we need to marry "finally" you. Equally, be warned though, that this is not about tips on how to get us to marry you quick...
With all due respect I don't have pity for all you lazy Darkies, that's the way I feel Screamin' "Radical Economic Transformation" All the black guys rather be at the club balling than pay their lil cousin’s varsity fees Yellin' "White Privilege this", “Fees Must Fall” and "Bring Back The LAND" and all Talkin' about apartheid like you was around back then Like you was...
Black is beautiful, magnificent and like hell it's excellent. Nothing gives me more joy than witnessing a black person ascend the corporate ladder, until he is the boss of everyone, including the white man. When it comes to celebrating blak excellence, I am a racist, and a proud one at that. If anyone does, these Black men deserve to be...
"This December let's give a special shout out to the dude who gets the ice" By Rati Mofokeng People like shaming the dude who goes to buy the ice / smokes / goes for a drinks run at a braai; yet he's clearly the responsible one (Usually not drunk too early or at all). Reliable (Even when you are drunk you know...
By Avela Sidaki Dear white lady, my name is not Cheapo, It's Tshepo. If you took five minutes out of your time to make an effort, you'd certainly not struggle to pronounce it. And while we are here on introductions, my child's name is Ntlahla (and NO YOU WILL NOT CALL HER LUCKY). The name is what it is for a...

Put Together by Anthony Rivas 1. Take note of all the small things you've accomplished today. NBC / Via oneclass.com "I write a 'Did Do' list of all the things I accomplish each day. Even just really basic things like 'shower,' 'go to work,' 'put laundry in hamper,' or 'made bed.' It really helps me being able to look at a list of things I...

Victimless Crimes

Wait, don't read between the lines… It is the pregnant pauses between the words that hides the lies that you turn your face from and call victimless crimes It is the raised fist in solidarity and that mispronounced title, “comrade" that allows you to say "okay but at least he bathed" and forget all the mess he made. So let's rise...

21 Dark Days

We all open our eyes days some-days not feeling like waking up, making our beds, answering the phone, reading or even talking to people. Waking up not feeling like doing all the little things that usually excite us, but for a normal person this is simply once in a very long while, a bucket of ice cream or yogurt...
Her credentials are impeccable, she has been hardened to the rigors of chapter 9 leadership, and she would be the people's favourite to take up the position of National Director of Public Prosecutions. That she acts without fear or favour is without question. Best of all she's still contemplating her future, and so she could start within weeks. The biggest threat...
By Brigette Mashile Just because you believe it doesn’t mean you are correct.  This sentence gives me freedom. To think that I could be wrong about a lot of things in my life makes me feel great! I mean do you know how limiting the human brain is. Then you add all the conditioning we have been through…its even lesser and...
By Herman Mashaba The ANC, yet again, has cooked up a motion of no confidence in the Speaker of Johannesburg's Council and myself. At least this time, instead of wasting the court's time and the taxpayer's money, the ANC has adhered to the rules of Council in bringing the motion. Indeed, our courts took a dim view of the ANC's frivolous court...
By Robert J. Traydon Julius Malema is one of South Africa's most contentious leaders. However, people should be slow to write him off as a political extremist. The fact is, Malema is at a crossroads: will he choose to follow in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela or Robert Mugabe? Malema has been labelled a firebrand, a racist and an extremist, but...
After seeing the recent research findings from ‘The Martha Effect: The compounding female advantage in South African higher education’, by Dr Nic Spaull and Hendrik van Broekhuizen, I thought to myself, the male species is at a risk of losing its competitive advantage, or more politically correct, losing its long standing privilege. For a long long time it was...
