Ramblings of a Nostalgic Senior

So as my last post I kind of wanted to write I guess what would be considered a reflection of some shape or form.  There ultimately won’t be a general topic or subject heading, I honestly don’t know I’m going to title this…ramblings of nostalgic senior? I actually kind of like it but more to […]

Tis the Season to Be…Critical

I don’t know if its the warm weather or the abundance of pollen plaguing the air but I can’t help but think about the summer which in turn makes me think of swimsuit season. UGH the dreaded words, the thoughts of self-loathing, the images of women that are prettier than you, skinnier than you and […]

Buffy: We Can Slay It

I’ve been considering doing a throwback post, taking something of the of the past and reevaluating it through a feminist lens.  For some of you this may be a throwback but for me, my past was void of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and her female empowerment. Granted  I was six when it first aired so […]

Anonymity at a Whole New Level

JMU Crushes. JMU Confessions. JMU advice. Are these anonymous Facebook and Twitter accounts helping or hindering our already technologically dependent generation?  I vote hindering.  I take up many issues with these new forums that basically encourage stalking and overall disrespect but is there really such a thing as anonymity  when it comes to the internet?

Titty Committee

Boobs.  I will never understand a man’s fascination with them…maybe because I am just so lucky to possess them but all in all, I don’t get it.

Money Can’t Buy Happiness

So we’ve all seen those videos on television that feature starving kids in Africa, skin and bones, sunken cheeks and even with flies in their eyes.  Don’t get me started on the cheesy Sarah McLachlan songs in the background or maybe that’s the SPCA advertisements of injured animals but that’s besides the point.  I will […]

Quick HIt: Bad Romance

Happy Women’s History Month!!! I meant this to be my link round up but here it is instead!  I was elated when I stumbled across this wonderful rendition of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance about women’s suffrage on youtube.  I don’t know about everyone else but I love Lady Gaga but some of her song’s don’t […]

I Am A Woman, Hear Me Roar

I first started taking birth control my senior year of high school, which would mean that I have been on it for almost 5 years.  It wasn’t until I took a course on women’s health issues my spring semester of my junior year, that I gathered a complete knowledge of exactly what birth control does […]
