Not Your Average Republican: What I Learned About Politics By Fighting For My Principles Instead Of My Party

This past year, I took a break from political writing. I wasn’t sure where I stood, I found myself disappointed with the GOP, frustrated with politics in general, and my proud Republicanism left me alienated at a very liberal college. But as time passed, I grew, and the people around me grew to understand that the r-word (Republicanism, that is) doesn’t instantly translate to bigotry, homophobia, hatred, and religion. I learned a lot from this hiatus, and I think stepping out of your political box and thinking independently could help all Americans, political affiliation regardless. Putting principle over party...

The Other F-Word: Feminists, And Why I’m Not One

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. Feminism has become a girls club, where women aren’t welcome if they have different political beliefs, or don’t succumb to the subjective ‘good woman’ mold. Conservatives, Republicans, and Traditionalists need not apply to believe in equality for all. We were told we were...

Charlottesville, Two Weeks Later: As A Black, Jewish, Republican Woman

At the Charlottesville protests, the hoods were off. No identities were hidden. Everything was out in the open for anyone and everyone to see. The white supremacists that dared to march for what they perceive as their holy racial cause feared no consequence. These men and women believed they could strut into their workplace on Monday and instill fear into the hearts and minds of their LGBTQ+ coworkers, coworkers of color, and Jewish coworkers. This signifies a turning point in America. How We Got Here We are not post-racial. We are not post anything: we live in a nation where...

Women-Only Screenings of Wonder Woman are Important

Stephen Miller, a political pundit known by his Twitter handle, RedSteeze, made headlines last Friday. How, you ask? He purchased a ticket to a women-only screening of Wonder Woman at The Alamo movie theater in Manhattan. Mr. Miller’s decision to invade a space specifically designated for women was met with varied reactions. Some supported it, and some were against it, but both sides argued their views in the name of equality. It’s arguable that Mr. Miller only purchased the ticket to cause an uproar. He claims that he will quietly sit in his seat and enjoy the screening. In any case, it comes...

The Inequality of ‘Equality’: The Truth About Modern American Feminism

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? More importantly, what has modern American...
