February 14th, also known as Valentine’s Day, can be a difficult holiday. For one day, each year, we celebrate love. Sounds like a happy topic, right? Unfortunately, not for all of us. Romantic relationships, like everything else in our lives, can often be complicated. The origins of this holiday are sweet and heartfelt as is […]Read More Loving Yourself On Valentine’s Day
Every year February fourteenth marks Valentines day. The origins of Valentines day come from a Christian feast day to celebrate a Christian Martyr, Saint Valentine’s; this holiday signifies the religious and cultural celebration of romance. Of course, not everyone is enthusiastic about Valentine’s day; for some, this holiday is not a celebration but a reminder […]Read More Feb.14th is for Self Love
As we come to a wrap with the end of this year, I am reflecting on how this class changed my perspective on women and gender studies issues. I was fortunate enough to be in a class this year that initially talked about safe space versus brave space. Our safe space was free from bias, […]Read More GOOD(BYE) FRIDAY!
we often equate being unavailable with being in a committed relationship. If you’re uninterested, that is enough to make you unavailable.Read More Ladies… don’t tell him you have a boyfriend.
My first thought for a Valentine’s Day post was just a pure rant. Valentine’s Day is a day that I haven’t really cared about since elementary school when there were classroom parties and we all got candy. But I feel like there’s enough of that (such as this one, or this other one) so then i decided […]Read More Valentine’s Day: A Pros and Cons List
Me and Valentine’s Day don’t get along. It never washes the dishes, does the laundry or pay the rent and yet I still let it sleep in the guest room. Every time the day that’s named after the patron saint of happy marriages and epilepsy rolls around, I feel lower than Hillary on election night. […]Read More A Valentine’s Struggle
It’s that time of the year again! Tax season! Oh, wait–I mean Valentine’s Day. Jokes aside, I am not all that much of a cynic about this holiday. I mean who doesn’t love candy and stuffed bears? So, here it is. The big day. Whether you’re single, hanging out with friends, visiting family, or cuddled […]Read More Celebrate V-Day the Pro-Choice Way
Ladies, we know about the friend that arrives every 28 days. This little friend that seems to defy the human body by bleeding for a week and we stay alive. We hate this friend, but we have to welcome it, I mean it’s biology. This friend is our period. Recently, there seems to have been […]Read More Empowering. The. Period.
With Valentine’s day right around the corner, there is a considerable amount of focus on romantic relationships and their advantages. On a college campus, the pressure to find a relationship is already ever present and a holiday that historically celebrates romantic love is not necessarily the most inclusive. This overemphasis serves as the perfect opportunity […]Read More Six Benefits of Being Single: College Edition
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m going to write a post about something I’ve never blogged about: Love and relationships. I am in a relationship, and I love talking about love, watching lovey-dovey movies, listening to love songs (especially Taylor Swift), but I didn’t think it was necessarily a feminist topic. However, most people deal with […]Read More Need relationship advice? Ask a married couple!
