Little Miss Innocent

       Innocent, naive, robot, grandma, goodie two shoes. These nicknames that I have been given represent how people judge me because of my premeditated decisions. Even though I don’t judge others for what they choose to do with their lives, they continue to be intimidated by the way that I behave. Being the “good” kid isn’t always fun when you have peers who have different values than you do. In reality, my values do not confront theirs. I don’t feel that I am better by any means if I choose to do something that someone else does not. I simply am not comfortable with it.

The Death of Modern Feminism

     Feminism, once an important, thriving cause, has lost much of it’s momentum in recent years, and along with it has lost a fair portion of its followers. It could be argued that it simply ran it’s course in the political system and will resurge again in the future, similarly to how American voting habits tend to swing liberally for a few years before conservatism resurgence, and vice versa, but I wouldn’t pin it on that cause. Rather, I would argue that Feminism as a whole is dying because, similar to the African-American civil rights movement and other related movements, they accomplished what they set out to do- while far right, conservative extremists will always exist, as will their liberal counterparts, equality has been effectively reached. Adoption of new goals and ideas, interestingly often as racist and sexist as the original arguments against feminism, has weakened their cause due to lack of public support. Furthermore, the mere image of a “feminist” has changed in recent years to a much more negative connotation, and these factors combined have together brought down one of the most effective public protest movements in all of modern politics.

Feminism In The Classroom

Feminism In The Classroom

What are the responsibilities of a school teacher? Should they tackle the complex and sensitive social issues that exist in modern society? Education plays a vital role in the mental and emotional development of children as they approach adulthood. Education in America has failed to provide a proper understanding of social issues to its millions of students. Most schools and teachers relegate the teaching of subjects like feminism and racial equality to parents. Unfortunately parents too often support the status quo, or even worse, completely ignore their duty of educating and informing their children. You may ask why any of this matters, Why should children be forced to learn about matters of opinion? Isn’t there a danger of schools choosing the opinions of impressionable youth?

Taking a Stand

In this essay, I wrote about the objectification of women in the media and the messages it sends out to society. I wrote about this topic because it is a huge issue with serious consequences.  Before it was brought to my attention, I never really noticed how the media turned women into objects.  I wanted to show people that it does happen and it does take its toll on people.   Read the rest of this entry »

Miss Representation Review

I chose this topic because the video really inspired me. They talked about topics that were true to today’s society, and an issue that occurs in the lives of the younger generation everyday. It is a very strong video with a strong message that should be heard by teenagers around the world.
