I don’t consider myself to be a feminist. I understand what feminism is defined as, I know more on the subject than most would assume. I believe in global equality for all people, races, genders. I am socially progressive, yet I am not a feminist. I refuse to use the title of feminist because of its connotations.

At the Charlottesville protests, the hoods were off. No identities were hidden. Everything was out in the open for anyone and everyone to see.

He claims that he will quietly sit in his seat and enjoy the screening. In any case, it comes...Read More
The political left often touts the ideas of equality and feminism while wearing their pink ‘pussy’ hats and insulting President Trump. From Lena Dunham, a hateful, anti-semitic, vulgar woman who claims she ‘wants to have an abortion’ to Madonna, who made threats about bombing the White House and claimed she’d give ‘oral sex to Clinton voters’, these are the current main faces of the modern American feminist movement. These are the women who are supposedly leading the next generation of women. How are we allowing a convicted terrorist to be leading The Women’s March?

When the subject of “black pride” comes up in conservative circles, it’s often met with criticism. The common response goes something like this: “if black or any racial pride is okay, why isn’t white pride?” The simplest answer? White pride is rooted in racial prejudices and hatred, and black pride is not. Heritage Versus Hate First, it must be said that there is nothing wrong with having pride in your heritage.
