Hey friends today we are going to do a little bit of a #TBT which is excellent because it is actually Thursday (I have a problem with saying #TBT when it isn’t Thursday). We are going to talk about how I was a terrible feminist prior to college, and how I was still a bad […]Read More The Journey
Okay. I’m about to brief you on some real bullshit. Recently White Student Unions have been appearing all over the nation. One of the first seemed to have originated in MIzzou. As you may know Mizzou and Yale have had a lot of racial tensions within their universities recently. There even have been a multitude of death threats on yik […]Read More Are You Kidding? White Student Unions?
I am so pissed off. Okay. So hopefully you all read my post from last week, Building Community. Because today we are going to talk about the uneducated assholes of the world. One in particular who basically does the exact opposite of everything I talked about. So don’t get me wrong, I am not against […]Read More Some People Need Time. Some People Need A LOT of Time.

You guessed […]Read More Microaggressions here at James Madison

It brings forth a number of educational aspects by providing JMU’s own student […]Read More Sexual and Gender Identities within the JMU Community
Have you ever been in a class having a discussion and someone just says something so infuriating that all you can think about is all the different ways you want to yell at them? I recently felt this in one of my Justice Studies courses here at James Madison University. I’m in a course called […]Read More This one time…in Gender and Justice…

I definitely find myself typically aligned with my friends, but won’t formulate an opinion unless I’ve educated myself on the person or event myself.
