Life as a woman with no children in Australian society project

Thank you for your support recruiting women for the Life as a woman with no children in Australian society project in 2014 and 2015. 

A total of 776 women aged 25 to 44 years was recruited and 294 women aged 45 to 64 years. A summary of findings is available from https://www.facebook.com/pages/Life-in-Australian-society-as-a-woman-with-no-children/592205344191162 or by contacting one of the research team.

We are now conducting a follow up research project to explore life in Australian society for women with no children aged 65 years or more. This time we hope to recruit at least 200 women with no children aged 65 years or more living in Australia, to complete an anonymous online questionnaire or a self-administered postal questionnaire.

If you have any queries, please contact me at taylor.n@deakin.edu.au, Dr Melissa Graham at melissa.graham@deakin.edu.au, or Professor Ann Taket at ann.taket@deakin.edu.au.

Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Taylor Nally

A species in plague proportions kills one of a species in danger of extinction

Sometimes things happen that really, REALLY make it hard for me to tolerate our species.

This week an extremely rare and beautiful animal was killed because an extremely common and poorly parented animal happened to get too close to it.

A species in plague proportions chose to kill one of a species in danger of extinction.

Are we fucking mad? The answer seems obvious.

Today on Australian news there was a report of a woman being taken by a crocodile.

Two women, walking arm in arm, hip deep in a river in the far north of Australia, where crocodiles fucking live, was taken. Why anyone is surprised is beyond me.

Anyone with half a brain cell knows that IS HOW crocodiles operate and that IS WHERE crocodiles are!

To me this seems like natural selection at work. But Australians have a long history of thinking that killing animals will spread some message of warning to the other animals to stop eating humans. We do it with sharks, Dingos, and Crocodiles to name a few. But we stop short of culling the biggest killer on our planet (after mosquitoes obviously).

One of Australia's moronic, obnoxious and stupid, stupid politicians, Bob Catter, has suggested that we should go out and hunt more crocodiles to stop this happening.

I suggest we go out and hunt more humans to stop this happening.

We have become far too tolerant of idiots, racists, bigots, morons, and plain fools and they are running the planet.

What can we do people?

Democracy is broken. It is a broken game and stupid people get to vote too.

We need something else because, until then, nothing will change.

Don't worry, we are still here...kind of...

Hi all,

It has been ages since I posted to this page so I thought I'd better do something to move the last sweary and aggressive sounding post down a bit :-)

As with much of the world, we are now doing most of our posting and interactions on Facebook.

We are nearly at 4000 likes, and that is "organic" likes. We have bought any fake likes or anything daft like that.

Real people really liking it.

I think that is great.

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you.
