Announce protest actions, general chit chat or give your opinion on issues we haven’t covered for the day.

Moderation rules are more lenient for this section, but try and play nicely.

EDITORS NOTE: – By the way, here’s a list of shit that will get your comment dumped. Sexist language, homophobic language, racist language, anti-muslim hate, transphobic language, Chemtrails, 9/11 truthers, Qanon lunacy, climate deniers, anti-fluoride fanatics, anti-vaxxer lunatics, 5G conspiracy theories, the virus is a bioweapon, some weird bullshit about the UN taking over the world  and ANYONE that links to fucking infowar.


  1. If an apology is due (from Hipkins) to the women who caused a lock down in Northland then our mainstream media owe Harry Tam one also.

  2. Women not looking after women. Feminism was supposed to see all girls together – getting women’s lives on the up and up. What? Then this sort of thing crops up.
    Hannah is just one of an estimated 120,000 New Zealanders with the condition, one in every 10 women, and each could tell a similar story.
    A new survey from the University of Canterbury put the average delay between symptoms and treatment at nearly nine years.
    Author Katie Ellis said many people didn’t understand the condition, despite its prevalence. “It occurs when tissue that resembles cells you would find in the uterus are found in other parts of the body,” she said.
    “Between 10 and 15 percent of women, and people assigned female at birth, are expected to have endometriosis.”

    Ellis said many doctors were hesitant to diagnose endometriosis, because the process was so invasive.
    “It has all these debilitating symptoms, but the symptoms aren’t unique enough to endometriosis to hear ‘X, Y, and Z are occurring,’ and know 100 percent for sure that it’s endometriosis,” she said. “The only way any endometriosis patient can get diagnosed is by surgery.”

    There is no reason that the medical leaders can’t establish a list that constitutes a syndrome, for an early diagnosis and continued oversight to establish best how to treat it. In less than three years say! They have done that with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It’s not rocket science; actually it seems harder to get intelligent, sensible treatment out of the poobahs at the top of medics than to get recruits slavering to get onto space programs. Hey, hey what do we want – less spent on outer space and more on inner space!
