We Are Precious


Even if you didn’t grow up in a religious household, surely you’ve heard the song with the lyrics “red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight.” Even if you are not religious, surely you can understand the importance of these lyrics to Americans at the time.

Ferguson


For the most part, I’ve been keeping my opinions of the events in Ferguson to myself. I wasn’t on the jury, I was not present when Michael Brown was killed, and I’m not here to cast judgement on something I have no proof of.

The changing face of rape


Today, in my office, I over heard two men talking about how rape has changed. One of them made the comment that rape doesn’t happen the same way that it did fifty years ago, and now we have to be suspicious of rape allegations. I held my tongue, of course, and went back to what … Continue reading

Do fraternities cause rape culture?


Odds are, if you’re a female who has ever been on a university campus, you’ve heard the warnings about the frat boys. Testosterone fueled, alpha males is the stereotype. Now, I’m not saying that I necessarily believe this. Do I know frat guys who seem harmless enough? Sure. Have I heard of frat boys drugging … Continue reading

Be beautifully different.

Two) Said law office just got broken into, and we repairmen constantly coming in and out this week. Three) I’m 20 years old, but I look like I’m 15 … Continue reading
