What can horse mutilations in France teach us about our collective state of mind? | Laura Spinney
The incidents may be a natural phenomenon, but the pandemic has made us more accepting of the sinisterThe animals have been found missing ears and genitals, with eyes torn out, or deep, clean cuts to their bodies. The recent spate of horse mutilations reported across France has provoked horror and outrage. Satanic cults have been mooted, or individual perpetrators engaged in copycat crimes. But what if the panic reveals more about our collective state of mind in 2020 than any new and twisted form of human behaviour?The reports started trickling in in January, but they picked up dramatically over the summer, until they were providing a sinister drumbeat to an already strange holiday season in France. Around 150 investigations of animal cruelty are under way, in more than half the country’s 96 metropolitan departments. Internet sleuths put the number of incidents closer to 200. Continue reading...

Kim-Joy's recipe for vegan robot fondant fancies
This is a quirky take on one of my favourite miniature treats – and the decorations help cover any imperfectionsFondant fancies are one of my favourite miniature treats, so I decided to liven them up by creating vegan robot versions. These can be a little fiddly to decorate – just take your time and make sure the cake and buttercream are chilled at the right points. Also, use a vegan butter with enough fat to set the buttercream properly. Don’t worry if there are imperfections – you can disguise these with the robot decorations.Makes 25 Continue reading...

Catching up with the Kardashians: here's what I learned
Beyond the frivolity, the show has dealt with some serious issues, including Caitlyn’s transition. So having finally watched some, is that enough to make me wish I’d been there from the start?I have not kept up with the Kardashians. I am not even sure how many there are. (I know people say this often, but in my case it is true.) I have never seen an episode of their eponymous show, and I would not have suggested to my editor that I mark the announcement of the end of its run by sitting down to become acquainted if I had understood there were 19 series spanning 14 years. This is a shade under half of the time I have been alive.The Kardashian family are a phenomenon, so it’s not that I know nothing. I know who Kim Kardashian West is because she has become one of the most famous women on the planet. The Kardashian matriarch, Kris, is very meme-able, so I recognise her in gif form. Caitlyn Jenner, the ex-partner of Kris, who transitioned in later series, entered my sphere of knowledge as an LGBT+ activist. Continue reading...

Little Girl review – a brave child's journey to her true self
In this illuminating and moving documentary, seven-year-old Sasha questions her gender – and challenges prejudiceSeven-year-old Sasha lives in provincial France, loves ballet classes, dolls, dresses and her family. She may have been born male, but she’s known at least since she was four that she’s really a girl. Luckily, her mother, Karine, completely supports her child and, together with Dad and the Sasha’s four loving siblings, the family embarks on a process of transition. This involves, among many other daunting steps, visiting a psychiatrist specialising in gender dysphoria in Paris to discuss the situation, including whether (when the time comes) to use hormone treatment as puberty starts, managing friendships and, most importantly, persuading Sasha’s school to recognise her as a girl. That last step appears not to go so well due to a more conventional school principal, but Sasha and her parents persist.This extraordinary documentary by director Sebastien Lifshitz, who has made many films about the LGBTQ+ experience (Wild Side, Bambi, Open Bodies), achieves a remarkable degree of intimacy with its young subject and her family. Getting up close and personal through tightly focused, limpid cinematography by Paul Guilhaume, the film allows us to study every flicker of expression on the faces of Sasha and the adults around her.
