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.

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...

13 Reasons Why You Should Get Involved: How Suicide Prevention is Pro-Life

The latest Netflix curated show to hit the streaming network is a bit unconventional. It’s not a light ‘dramedy’ like Orange Is The New Black, it’s not a documentary, or even much of a show at all. It’s titled 13 Reasons Why, and it’s a fictional tale about a young high school girl, Hannah Baker, taking her own life. 13 Reasons Why is an important commentary on bullying and harassment, but also on the exclusion and loneliness many teens experience and will continue to face. 13 Reasons Why should be important to the pro-life movement. You may ask why, because Hannah Baker isn’t a...

How Legalizing Cannabis Can Benefit America

Historically, America has had a difficult relationship with marijuana. From Reefer Madness, to Nixon dubbing cannabis ‘public enemy number one’, to the current War on Drugs, the government’s relationship with marijuana hasn’t always been positive. However, now that states have started legalizing it, both medically and recreationally, we can see a major change in perception of cannabis usage in society. So far the impact of marijuana legalization is undeniably positive. In 2012, Colorado and Washington (the first states to legalize the substance) made cannabis recreationally legal for people 21 and over. Just from the cannabis industry, Colorado’s state economy has...
