Quoting John Lennon in Your Instagram Bio Isn’t Enough – Activism Through Social Media

In 2018, all the information in the world is at our fingertips. The news is a quick tap away, or even the flash of a notification; in an instant, millions of people know the most recent event or decision. With social media, millions have the opportunity to have an audience. Their audience may be their Grandma, or it may be 500,000 people that they have never met. There many benefits of social media in activism.

‘Split’ Is Not As Problematic As We Thought

Split is the latest film from director M. Night Shyamalan (director of blockbusters like The Sixth Sense and extraordinarily awful flops like The Last Airbender). It’s a thriller about a man with dissociative identity disorder who kidnaps three teenage girls. When the trailer came out, it was criticized for perpetuating a dangerous stigma around with people with D.I.D. The trailer portrayed Kevin, the lead character with D.I.D as an antagonist, and almost made it look as though his disorder gave him superpowers.


Open Letter to my ‘Friends’ who Support Trump

Self Care Boxes: How I Help Myself When I’m Anxious

  via Like many teens, I struggle with my mental health and anxiety. When I’m especially anxious, I have one thing that can really help me calm down and relax – my care box. My care box is a medium-sized black box. It’s nothing much to look at. I keep it in my closet, next to my dresser. Anyone looking at it would think it was just a box I used for storage, but


Dress Code: A Girl’s Introduction to Sexualization

via NewsBusters In schools all around the United States, dress codes are enforced to “keep a sense of professionalism.” They usually aren’t prevalent until middle school or later, but in some school districts, they can make an appearance in schools as early as kindergarten, as evidenced in this report of a five-year-old girl who had to change because her dress had spaghetti straps. Although these rules were originally set up in schools to make a safe
