I conduct behaviour analysis on social trends + track extremism and its online proliferation and its connection to dehumanisation. Currently I am tracking pro Palestinian NGO terror proxies in Canada. I write about domestic extremism and Islamist extremism, with a focus on the links between front NGOs and terror entities.

I am an ex Catholic and an ex Muslim. I am an agnostic, not an atheist. I reject tribes.

Why Bad Hijabi?

It's a satirical name, mocking the ridiculous notion of "bad hijab"–an actual crime in countries ruled by deranged Islamic regimes, such as Iran. Women receive punishment for being bad hijabis. Mahsa Amini was killed for being a bad hijabi. Nothing happens to me if I am a bad hijabi, I can live my life quite unaware of how dangerous my irreverence and disobedience would be in another part of the world. Western hijab wearing women have a duty to our sisters living in Islamic regimes to use our freedom to promote religious tolerance and choice for women. Hijab cannot be fard or this legitimises the brutality of the IRGC!

Grown Up Stuff

This takes hours of complex research and sometimes accessing research studies comes at a cost. Staying informed involves subscriptions to news media in counties such as Australia, UK, France, USA. This publication is reader supported, please consider supporting independent, fact-based science writing with a paid subscription. Paid subscriptions cost $10/month or $100/year.

I established a nonprofit organisation in honour of my late mother to promote brain-savvy hooman-ing + parenting and to support parents struggling in a culture hostile to families and nurturing attachment connections. The world is a pretty messed up place because the people that populate it are messed up and that’s because parenting is an extreme sport and parents don’t get enough support to discharge their duties and we all suffer. So I wanted to create an organization to help parents help themselves help their kids. Missing From Me will create + develop a knowledge base to encourage brain savvy human connection + health. Proceeds from the sales in my Shop go to Missing From Me, or you can make a donation here.
