SEGREGATION AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL “LOTTERY” 

June 12, 2019

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 was intended to hold schools responsible for their students’ education using something called the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) to measure test scores and overall performance.

For some reason, people in California love to tell others how brave they are for their choices. Such as adopting a mixed-race child. But what happens when someone says you’re not allowed to do that?

Intersex babies (born with specific gender chromosomes, but display characteristics of the opposite gender) are born at about a rate of 0.018% (Sax, 2002). You may have seen stats such as 1 in 100 babies born are intersex (INSA.org) or 1.7% (Sax, 2002). But for the purpose of this blog post, we’ll go with the medical definition of intersex.

To make up for that click-bait title, I’ll give you the answer to that question now. No. No, it doesn’t. But my research did intrigue me. If you haven't seen the Business Insider article about Mrs. X, I suggested you take a read.

In the President’s State of the Union (SOTU) Address on February 5, Trump began strong. He stated that our nation has unlimited potential and we need to work as one nation instead of two divided parties.

JORDAN PETERSON’S 12 RULES FOR LIFE – CHAPTER 6 ANALYSIS

February 14, 2019

Whenever we experience injustice, or fall prey to the machinations of others; whenever we experience the horror of our own arbitrary limitations – the temptation to question Being and curse it rises foully from the darkness.

We’ve all been there. Trying to have a nice, quiet meal or watch a movie in the theatre when someone’s kid starts running up and down the aisles, making noise and just being disruptive.

Maybe it’s a regional thing and maybe it’s an experience thing, but there are plenty of men in today’s society that feel dismissed by women.

My son was too busy looking out the car window and watching the fiery-colored trees sweep by to notice anything was wrong.

If you haven’t seen the news about the “smug” MAGA hat-wearing teen at the Women’s March on Saturday, then, I envy the hell out of you.

I’ve been reading Dr. Jordan Peterson’s book, 12 Rules for Life. Along my perilous journey through the dark annals of the Internet, I’ve come across plenty of people who don’t particularly enjoy Dr. Peterson’s success.

THIRD-WAVE RADICAL FEMINISM IS A BAD HABIT

January 11, 2019

A healthy routine is a routine which benefits you. Whether you brush your teeth before your morning shower or after, simple routines can ground us in reality. Thus, helping us grow as individuals.

REDDIT COMPARED SHAPIRO TO AOC AND IT WAS HILARIOUSLY OBLIVIOUS

June 10, 2019

For those who don’t “Reddit,” the political leaning of the website has slipped so far left that they’re idolizing Alexandria Ocasio (Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria) Cortez as the next presidential candidate because she was a waitress. Oh, and they’re using height as a defining professional feature.

AB 239 “[made] instruction in sexual health education mandatory, [revised] human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention education content, [expanded] topics covered in sexual health education, [required] this instruction to be inclusive of different sexual orientations, and [clarified] parental consent policy."

THE WAR ON WHITE PRIVILEGE

April 27, 2019

Does white privilege even exist? Some users on Reddit certainly think it’s alive and well in today’s political and social atmosphere. In a place like America, where we have freedom of speech, freedom to apply to any job we want and the lack of a cap on earnings, it’s hard to measure white privilege.

One in every ten children will experience sexual abuse before they turn 18 (Townsend & Rheingold). For every ten people who pass you on the street, one of them was sexually abused as a child. That number is way too big.

TRIGGER WARNING! THIS IS MY #METOO STORY

February 10, 2019

I wanted to write this post because sometimes we don’t recognize an abusive relationship while we’re in it. Those who are victim to domestic assault often defend their partner ruthlessly. But there are other, subtler signs that we should all be aware of.

JORDAN PETERSON’S 12 RULES FOR LIFE – CHAPTER 4 ANALYSIS

January 30, 2019

We all have that little voice inside that tells us we’re not worth shit. That little negative voice tells us we’re inadequate. It shows us our shortcomings continually. As if it wants us to fail. Because it does.

DON’T CROWD ME! THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LEFT AND RIGHT DECORUM

January 28, 2019

I struggled with the title to this, because I’m honestly not even sure what to call the left and right anymore. There seem to be plenty of conservatives on the left and tons of liberals on the right. I’m hesitant to refer to them as such, though, because a person can have both liberal and conservative views.

We’ve all had those friendships we’ve had to reevaluate over time. Whether it’s the “friend” who only calls you when they need something, or the “friend” who encourages you to drink even though you don’t want to.

We all have a favorite actor/actress that when mentioned at a party, everyone looks at you like you're an idiot. No one knows who that is! Get a life and watch the same movies as everyone else.

5 HOLLYWOOD ACTORS WHO’D MAKE GREAT SERIAL KILLERS

January 11, 2019

Yeah, I get it. Ryan Reynolds has done some more serious and scary roles such as Paul Conroy in Buried and George Lutz in The Amityville Horror, but he’s never done a slasher. Think about it: Ryan Reynolds as a schizophrenic sociopath laughing manically while chasing Tara Reid with a butcher knife.
