Gender: Nothing But Social Engineering

Written by Jay Lucci There is a far too large number of people that use the argument ‘not identifying with your assigned gender at birth is unnatural and morally worng.’ This argument is often somehow used by politicians (all be it they are conservatives so we cant be surprised) at the highest level of governemnt. Below using that often used argument of ‘unnatural’ and not bilogically right I can debunk the myth that you have

Yes I Can Be Muslim And Feminist

Different people come from different backgrounds that hold certain diverse situations that inevitably help form the person for who they are today, each person who decided they would become a feminist to fight for equality for both genders would have had to be affected with a situation to open their minds at the inequality that is faced. Saying that, not everyone has an easy way into becoming a feminist, despite everything there will always be

No Need For Meninism

Written by Catherine Robinson  We’ve all seen it. The ever so popular “Meninist” twitter account that not only dishes out anti-feminist, often hateful thoughts from the mind of a meninist, but they even have their own clothing line! Go figure! But what does this all really mean? What is the meninist “movement” even about? Who is it helping?             Let’s take a quick look at our history, shall we? The original leader of the feminist

Not a Disease of Vanity

Written by Holiday Silver There is a common misconception – perpetuated largely by the media, as these things often are – that eating disorders are merely a desire to be thin. The physical manifestation of vanity. Not only is this a gross oversimplification, but it can prove deadly to eating disorder sufferers. Treatment is difficult enough without a society which condescends and criticizes sufferers over a crucial misunderstanding of their illness. Eating disorders have infinite

Why Free The Nipple Is Important To Feminism

Written by Bethany Lee Koval Don’t ask yourself why “Free the Nipple” should be a movement, ask yourself why it shouldn’t be. Ask, why shouldn’t a woman be allowed to roam bare-chested in areas of noted informality, such as a public beach? Ask, why shouldn’t a mother be able to breastfeed her child in an open area? These restrictions are rarely questioned due to their widespread acceptance. Now is our time to question these rules,

Toxic Masculinity

Written by Alexis Isabel  Masculinity is defined as the possession of the qualities traditionally associated with men. Hyper masculinity has been toxic, violent, and ultimately deadly. This idea of manliness is prevalent in society, and the media seems to ignore its negative results and enforce these gender roles. Below I will point out some issues with masculinity. Limitations: Toxic masculinity is often absorbed by men. This results in men feeling as if they must follow a

Why Feminists Should Choose Bernie Over Hillary

Hillary Clinton is often framed as the “women’s candidate” for president. This is not unfounded; her positions are relatively pro-women, and she has a history of advocating for women and children. Many major feminists have come out in support of her, including Gloria Steinem who claimed that women who voted for Clinton over Obama in 2008 were more “radical,” despite the fact that Obama has proven himself to be more liberal than Clinton in almost

The Double Standard With Makeup

“I could wipe off your beauty with a kleenex.” “Boys like a more natural look.” “You look sick without makeup on.” “Who are you trying to impress?” Girls get bombarded with comments like these on a daily basis. The media, parents and peers are all telling us different things when it comes to how much foundation, eyeliner and mascara we should wear. Headlines like “13 Reason Why Your Brows ARENT On Fleek” morph the views

My Body, My Choice: Let’s End the Virginity Stigma

In today’s culture, virginity has become a concept which holds much greater value than its literal definition. While the concept is simple, society has placed a tremendous amount of moral and ethical connotation along with it. The pressure placed on today’s youth because of these standards has led to a substantial amount of judgement and misunderstanding of the act of losing one’s virginity. However, these ideals reflect most predominantly towards women. Due to the stigma that

Sex in Society

I’d like to propose a question: what are the negative consequences for a woman resulting from safe sex with multiple partners?  Let’s examine that. After sex with three men, does my intellect suddenly begin to experience a severe decline? After five partners, do other components of my worth begin to magically disintegrate into thin air? My sense of humor: gone?  My fundamental values such as family and education: abolished? Am I no longer the ambitious
