A Woman’s Touch

A Woman’s Touch

The year is 1925, the place, Manhattan New York.  Our story begins on a cold summer’s night in an alleyway right behind Monroe Street.  Rain slowly showers the dirty streets of Manhattan, covered in not only the clutter of trash but also the filth of the local crime ring that runs through this area.  A cigarette butt here, a bullet casing there, but mostly the shattered glass of bottles and windows. In the distance the salty smell of the Hudson river can be sensed by any passerby who goes near the docks. The black water laps quietly against the wooden posts that hold the old rotting floorboards above the cool desolate abyss of water that silently lays waiting for the day it will swallow up deteriorating construct.  The eerie white moonlight that refracts off the obsidian water reflects the image of a woman in her mid-thirties, dressed in a long grey trench coat and wearing a black slouch hat of the Australian variety. She wears suit pants and long black boots to match her hat. This woman is none other than our main character, a detective by the name of Cassidy Wiley, the only woman on record in Manhattan to have busted multiple crime rings and thieves guilds.  To most she is the epitome of impressive, but to herself she’s just a woman trying to make a living and keep the streets cleaner.

Holland Holland

Holland, Holland 

     Holland was invisible, like all the greatest things. Nobody can see the air they breathe, but it is the greatest need, for without the air the human race will cease-but the world shall continue still. How selfish it is to assume the end of the world because the humans are not there. How self centered.

Alienated Feminist

As a male feminist, I feel I don’t belong.  While “feminism” is the push for the equality of the sexes, it is, no doubt, a movement by and for women.  I am without understanding of the struggles that most feminists rally to defeat. I do not daily face oppression on my gender.  The harsh conditions and social norms that the many feminists fight to change are not my own. I am a male feminist. I feel I don’t belong.

Lessons Learned

Turning fourteen was always an exciting thought, as I was prepared to start physically developing and be treated as more of a woman. Although, once the day came it was not as ecstatic as I’d hope it’d be. I started dating a boy a year older than me close to my birthday and things went great for the first five months of our relationship. We had a lot of fun and we had a ton in common with one another. As the relationship progressed, and we became more comfortable with each other, he began to become extremely possessive. I loved having someone care for me and be jealous, as I had never had that before, but eventually it got to the extreme. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Distract the Boys

Girl’s dress code in school has been a problem for years now and it only seems to be escalating.  Girls are being sent home from school and getting detentions for wearing clothes that the schools are argueing are too “scandalist”.  In reality these girls are just wearing regular clothing, they are not showing up to school wearing bikinis or lingerie.  These girls are getting in trouble for showing their shoulders or too much of their thigh or collarbone.  The schools say it is too much of a “distraction” if a female student wears “revealing clothing”.  How is a shoulder distracting?  It is not fair that a girl gets in trouble because a boy cannot go without getting “distracted” by what she is wearing.  Boys should be able to sit in class and concentrate without being “distracted” by a girl’s shoulder or leg.  It is not fair that the girl is being punished when the boy is at fault;  a man should be able to function properly no matter how a woman is depicted.  A girl should be able to wear shorts and a tank top to school if it is hot and should not have to worry whether she is going be punished or not.  Boys need to stop looking at girls as objects and start looking at them as equal human beings.  This exhausting battle for women needs to come to an end, and women need to stop being depicted as a distraction. It is time that they can stop having to cover up so they do not distract the boys.  Women need to be seen as being equal to men. Read the rest of this entry »

The American Voice: Young American’s Define Feminism

The purpose of this project was to explore how united and educated the feminist movement is in young Americans. In past years, the media has been broadcasting the feminist movement as a radical and anti-men movement. Since young Americans are simultaneously the most vocal in the feminist movement and the most susceptible to the media, I was curious to see whether or not the media was altering the way young Americans view the feminist movement. To find the answer, I spent some time on the campus of Saint Louis University to ask Students what their definition of feminism was.
