Imaginary Conversations I Have In The Shower

I admire your effortless ability to not concern yourself with things that don’t personally affect you and to things that are anything less than validating to your stone solid beliefs. How does one have such high and mighty steel barriers and a lackadaisical disposition? The pure perplexity of this question draws out my envy and… Continue reading Imaginary Conversations I Have In The Shower

Are Women Overlooking This Important Aspect of Feminism?

Here it is. The essay I’ve been avoiding. The ‘what feminism means to me’ chicken scratch I’ve kept in my drafts for two years. Because who wants to tackle something so broad, controversial, and — dare I say — introspective? Well, usually, I do! So, what is it about defining feminism that drives me up a wall? For… Continue reading Are Women Overlooking This Important Aspect of Feminism?

I’m So Vain, I Bet You Think My Selfie Is For Attention

When are we going to stop shaming people for liking themselves? Since middle school, I’ve struggled with my self-image to a debilitating degree. That was when I remember noticing that school felt less like education and more like a cut-throat beauty pageant — the aspired prize being a slinky, doped-up teenage boy. Once I started comparing… Continue reading I’m So Vain, I Bet You Think My Selfie Is For Attention

Was I Abused Because I Chose The Wrong Men?

Women are doing the best they can with what society has to offer them. My first encounter with abuse was in my junior year of high school — around 2013. I was sixteen. This boy and I had been together for a year. We had met right after I’d been cheated on by someone I considered to be… Continue reading Was I Abused Because I Chose The Wrong Men?

“Write Something Happy”

I have been writing about pop culture, and media for over a year now, but have only ever dabbled in politics. Opinion pieces and cultural critiques are right in the sweet spot of my comfort zone and I’ve been camping out there for quite some time. In-depth reporting on current events has been a goal… Continue reading “Write Something Happy”

The Internet Discourse Surrounding Depp v. Heard Has Been Re-Traumatizing Victims Since Day One

Consider how the irresponsible coverage and social media wars have impacted survivors of intimate partner violence. A majority of the work I publish usually relates to victims’ rights, narratives, and awareness about intimate partner violence. I mainly write about the female experience, as I can only describe what I know. But I have always supported… Continue reading The Internet Discourse Surrounding Depp v. Heard Has Been Re-Traumatizing Victims Since Day One

Make The Decision To End The Cycle

Sometimes I contemplate how further along womankind would be if we didn't place everyone else on a pedestal before ourselves like men do. Men prioritize and pedastalize themselves. They would never give up their hopes and dreams to appease others. They go out and get what they want and everything else in their lives must… Continue reading Make The Decision To End The Cycle

Mass Casualties Will Never Motivate Change When The Politicians Do Not Value Our Lives

Here we are again. Tuesday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX marked the 213th instance of gun violence in the United States this year. This occurred days after the brutal murder of ten innocent civilians at Tops market in Buffalo, NY. It feels as if we’ve been witnessing non-stop tragedy since gun violence hit its peak… Continue reading Mass Casualties Will Never Motivate Change When The Politicians Do Not Value Our Lives
