2012 election: a new hope

Every four years, the presidential elections drop further into a lapse of reason, using strategies to capture American voters that wouldn’t work on a fifth grader. “South Park” created an accurate analogy of presidential elections during the episode in which the boys had to choose a new school mascot. The character Stan refused to vote […]

No courtesy on the basketball court

This year’s NBA season has taught that people expect an incredible amount of decorum out of high school graduates. Kevin Garnett was vilified for saying Charlie Villanueva, who suffers from alopecia, looked like a “cancer patient.” Kobe Bryant was fined $100,000 for calling a referee a homosexual slur while on the bench. Now that the […]

Pick up lines: pick your kind

Many people come to college with the hope of finding their one true love.

He basically states that men cannot be held responsible for sexual aggression after a woman has "led them on" with conflicting signals. This completely erases a woman's individual agency and condones nonconsensual sex. The last I checked, that [...]

Mooching has finally gone too far

By definition, a "mooch" as a noun is a beggar or scrounger. As a verb, it's obtaining without asking or paying. By my definition, it's the people I live with. After exerting a certain amount of patience and food loss, I'm drawing the line. Just as there's a difference between common sense and plain stupidity, [...]

Humpday Quickie article clarified

A healthy relationship requires good communication. Being forthcoming with emotional, intellectual and sexual desires is the best way for intimate partners to avoid misrepresenting and misinterpreting intentions. Individuals are responsible for their own actions, but those actions are shaped by their environment. When an environment condones particular behaviors, an individual may learn to repeat those [...]
