About

The Atypical Political is a typical political blog containing the controversial musings of not one, but two Internet philosophers and real life loudmouths. We became friends through a shared love of inflaming political debates much to the dismay of many of our Facebook acquaintances who preferred to surround themselves solely with like-minded people. Much the opposite, we thrive on open discussion and healthy disagreement. This fuelled many a lively conversation via private messaging, and ultimately gave birth to this, our pet blog, whom we love and cherish very much and hope to see grow up big and tall one day (not to discriminate against the small and short, of course).

 

LADIES FIRST

Jennifer ijenheads a sucker for literature, comedy and cinema (and some other, less mentionable stuff too). She was born in Russia to Russian parents who then subsequently moved her to the USA for ten years. Just as she was getting used to it there, they mercilessly dragged her to Switzerland where she was forced, poor thing, to learn French and to live another ten years in a safe and comfortable environment. She then moved to London under the pretense of studying a rather silly degree in music, but secretly just because she liked Monty Python and the Beatles and everything cliché about the Brits. She soon found out that the clichés were more or less true, and decided to stay. Her “firmly held beliefs” tend to gravitate around advocacy for the devil, veering towards a libertarian left with a sprinkle of traditionalism. (Being Russian and obsessed with the past, and all.)
