A Glasgow nightclub has installed a two-way mirror which allows male revellers in private booths to spy on unsuspecting women as they visit the toilet! With no notification or signage anywhere in the venue many female club goers have been left feeling embarrassed and used. Although they do briefly show the mirrors in a promo video, the club has been quickly deleting comments and posts on their social media from club goers trying to alert others to the situation. This is pretty much illegal and hugley violates privacy. Thank you The Shimmy Club for giving us a shiny, new, creative and cool take on objectification.
i’m never leaving my house again, this world is just too fucked up.
gross gross gross gross gross
Good morning disgusting.
- “No space, leave the place” (fingernail test)
- A two way mirror must be set INTO the wall, not placed on top of it.
- If you rap/knock against the mirror, one installed onto a wall (a normal mirror) will make a dull sound, because there’s something behind it. A two-way will have more reverberation.
- Use the flashlight on your phone to shine on the mirror, if it’s a two-way, you’ll be able to see into the other room.
- You can also shield your eyes and see in if you lean up against the glass.
- The room being viewed will have to be brightly lit (10x brighter than the room looking in), so if you’re in a typical dimly lit club bathroom, you’re ok.
Ahahahaha tumblr on BBC news showing our weirdness to all of Britain. Yaldy.
I actually think this was pretty responsible. Rather than banning it outright, which would result in kids wanting to rebel even more, she offers it in her home where she can control the amount people drink. Good on ya, Mrs George. You’re a cool mom.
She also offered her daughter a condom when she was hooking up with a guy instead of freaking out and kicking the guy out of the house.
I know this sounds silly but I’ve fallen in love with Brett from Suede…..(Cue general hoots of incredulity and comments like ‘Fuck off!’, ‘Who put that in there?’ and ‘Coincidentally, this letter’s been given to Blur! What a suprise.’)
This may not sound like anything strange, but I’m a boy. I’m so worried that I might be gay. I have all sorts of fantasies about Brett. I have never felt this way about a male before and I’ve had lots of girlfriends, even though I’ve never been all the way. Please help, I’m not homophobic but until now I had felt very confident about my sexuality.
Graham: “Now’s your chance to have that homosexual experience Brett!” (He’s alluding, of course, to Brett’s infamous claim that he’s a ‘bisexual who’s never had a homosexual experience.’)
Alex: “It’s alright Tony. We understand Brett’s looking for someone just like you!”
Graham: “Tony, I think you should go all the way with one of the girlfriends. You know, try it out, and if it’s not your bag, do something else.”
Damon: “You may be gay. Don’t worry about it. If you’re confused about whether you’re gay or not, your best bet is to try and find an environment where there are other people who can talk about it, and identify with you. Also, once you realise that being gay is only part of your personality, then it will all become a lot easier.”
Alex: “And you get yourself down to Old Compton Street, mate.”
Damon: “But I would add that falling in love with people in the media is a bad idea. Brett is a very heterosexual male. And this letter is just an example of him messing people up through wantonly ambiguous declarations about his sexuality. Next!

homophobic participating countries who didn’t show the gay kiss on eurovision must pay a fine because eurovision must be shown from beginning to end without cutting anything out and they are banned from eurovision for the next three years
