The Sociological mail blog

We are The Sociological Mail, a consortium of writers who are dedicated to the dissemination of Sociological information (surprise, surprise) to all those willing to engage.

So, how did this blog come about?

A group of young people at Loughborough University thought it would be a good idea to create a blog so we could continue debating prior to our degree. We convinced a number of people to join us and before we knew it we had developed a platform with over 35 contributors from all walks of life. A virtual melting pot of different ages, sexes, and abilities, our diversity in articles is only one way to experience our ranges of interests.

Over time we figured we should have a mission. 
1) Disseminate Sociological information
2) Provide Sociological solutions to issues
3) Write articles which aid social cohesion

So come on over and see if we’re doing a good job, and don’t be scared to critique us. We hope to hear from you soon !

Dear Kitty Blog

Blogging on animals, peace and war, science, social justice, women’s issues, arts, and much more.

When I started blogging at ModBlog in January 2005, I wrote (and I will repeat it here, to prevent it from going down with, now in 2011, Blogsome):

Dear Kitty,

Welcome, to read the diary as I write.

Like Anne Frank 63 years ago, I am starting something while unable to predict how the world around me will evolve.

I hope this will be a many-sided diary. I hope I will be able to write much on new discoveries on ancient cultures; new poems; new paintings; new scientific discoveries in medicine, the lives of birds, and much more.

However, political and economic power being in the hands where they are now, I fear that I will have to write much on “four more years” of war in Iraq and elsewhere; rich getting richer and poor getting poorer; torture in Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere; environmental destruction by corporations and governments.

Still, I hope that I will also be able to report on people fighting against these phenomena; for a better, more peaceful and just world.

In chaos theory , there is the “butterfly effect “: a butterfly in the Amazon rain forest, flapping its wings, usually does not cause a storm far away, felling mighty trees.

However, in some unusual circumstances, it does.

May there be favorable circumstances for bloggers and others speaking truth to power! “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”, as Muhammad Ali used to say.

Blind Injustice Blog

Have you ever been called out for acting in unjust ways? If so, join the club—I’ve been called out on multiple occasions for acting in unjust ways too. 

My inspiration for Blind Injustice is that I want those unjust ways, in myself and in others, to be confronted before we commit those injustices. I do this by writing about some of the ways that we may be blind to and/or blindly commit injustices that range from sexism to ageism. 

I might not be able to deliver world peace, but I hope that my blog can at least make each of my readers a little more just.
