    What Have We Learned?

    We went from people flipping out that Bert and Ernie were not outed on Sesame Street, to people banning Sesame Street for it’s so called “gay” agenda, and the actual creators of Sesame Street, saying in perhaps less colorful vocabulary, “What the f*ck are you guys talking about!?”

    Miley’s Wrecking Ball

    Picture if you will, my face.  At first it is cautiously optimistic.  My eyes focused intently on the tearful opening of Miley Cyrus’ ballad…Then my brows begin to furrow as she licks a hammer and straddles a giant ball swinging from the ceiling.  All hope is lost as she arches her back completely naked whilst mid swing.

    Body Image, Body Acceptance, and Instagram

    I certainly am guilty of editing who I am. In fact, even though I didn’t try to crop out the fat in my bikini picture, I used a filter that made me look more tan.

    Why We Should Be Praising Miley Cyrus

    There is no other signifier to the entrance of womanhood than sexuality.  Men have adventure stories where they prove their manliness by climbing mountains and going on deep journeys of self-discovery, and women have their stories of finding a boy and losing their virginity.

    Beauty: Just a Fleeting Moment?

    Who is to say what anyone “should” look like at a certain age?  Despite ample evidence to the contrary, humans still insist that a certain age looks a certain way and looking “good” for an age is supposed to be a different matter than simply being the age that you are.

    Are You Depressed or Just Sad?

    A person suffering from depression may not necessarily be able to do so. When someone is sad, he or she tends to know that things will get better over time. A person going through depression does not see an end to his or her problem and think things will get worse.

    Why I Like ‘Blurred Lines’

    Admittedly that phrase, 'I know you want it', does not exactly give us the idea that there is mutual consent in any of the sexual activity hinted at in the song. But I would liken it to sexual foreplay between consenting adults and leave it at that. It's sexy and suggestive.

    Asking the Question: Who Am I?

    I had a better idea of myself when I was a child. In fact, I was much happier. I did what felt good and trusted myself enough to follow my heart. Somewhere along the journey my mind got clouded with misconceptions of what it meant to live a fulfilling life.
