every f*cking day of my life – a justified homicide?

  http://documentarystorm.com/one-minute-to-nine/       Following years of brutal domestic abuse, Wendy Maldanado and her son, Randy, murdered her husband, Aaron.  Following the bludgeoning, Wendy received a ten-year prison sentence while her son received a six-year ‘shock probation.’               Maldanado simply reacted out of self-defense.  Previously, her marriage could have been defined as ritualism by Merton’s Strain…

transgenderism is a disease

My views on transgenderism is simple, neither side is right, and neither side is wrong.  (If you get confused on some of the terminology, scroll down to the bottom and I have definitions 🙂 ) To further evaluate what I mean when I say “side”, I mean the general leftists accepted view and the general…

tv for tots ; a cultural deviation

              In his article, TV for Tots: Not What You Remember, journalist Jonathan Last makes the claim that children’s television programming is neutering their male characters, creating an effeminate generation.  However, a recent cultural shift may be to blame for this change in characterization.  While I believe that gender roles are important to the…

a really good day

  There’s nothing interesting to read here. If you’re looking for a click bait title (which I’ve been accused of), or a dramatic post that will have you grasping into the edge of your seat, you’re on the wrong post.    I just wanted to drop in and say that I’ve had a really good…

why sjws and trump trainers are the same

That title made some people mad. SJW:  “Social Justice Warrior”.  Tumblrinas.  Extreme-leftist liberals.  Feminists who voted for Hillary Clinton.  Anti-gun.   Trump Trainers:  Nationalists.  Have American Flags in their trucks.  Extreme-rightist conservatives.  Potential racists who voted for Donald Trump. Both are annoying.  Both refuse to admit their wrongs.  Both need to see the other side…

the race riot ; a dedication to andy warhol

  He was a spectator, an innovator, a radical; he was the one and only, Andy Warhol.   Born Andrew Warhola on August 6th, 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Andy Warhol was the youngest of three sons.  His mother, Julia Warhola, was a Carpatho-Rusyn immigrant.  At age eight, Warhol was diagnosed with Sydenham Chorea, otherwise referred to…

two and a half minutes to midnight

On January 26th, the Bulletin of Scientists Science and Security Board (shew, that’s a mouthful) moved the Doomsday Clock up thirty seconds. We are now closer to midnight than we have been since 1953.    To elaborate, the Doomsday Clock is a hypothetical clock counting down towards imminent global catastrophe.  The countdown is determined by…

oh the places you must go

“I overslept” “I’m busy then” “I can’t take another thing on my schedule!” Teenagers today are overwhelmed.  As an 18-year old girl, WE ARE OVERWHELMED.  In an average week, I attend six classes (four at college), keep straight As, work 20 hours, have SGA, committees, try to sleep, and keep a social life.  I have…

{guest post} the future

  For long I have been wondering what to do with my life and how things are starting to change. Growing up is not easy, especially when you have to live up to certain standards. When you are an adult your life is all about future aspirations and current problems. I didn’t want to be…

artists ; making the invisible become visible

              Art is anything that provokes thought or emotion in the viewer, or, that is my personal conviction at least.             As long as humanity has been around, we have been uncomfortable by deep thoughts and emotions.  We try to condense them without even realizing it.  We are creatures of habit, and both emotions…
