I am a print communications major and a junior at Arcadia University. I currently write for the Tower Newspaper and am the Campus News Editor. In addition I write for Loco Magazine. I intern in the Office of University Relations with Laura Baldwin, the Chief Officer of Marketing and Communications at Arcadia University. Additionally, I have worked to promote diversity through my work in the Office of Institutional Diversity and through my role as Treasurer of the Latino Association at Arcadia University. Finally, I rule with an iron fist as the Vice President of the Student Government Organization. Grandparents will tell tales to their grandchildren about my reign of terror someday.
My top loves in this world are (in order):
1) Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2) Sarah Michelle Gellar
3) Avril Lavigne
4) Final Fantasy VII
5) Fruits Baskets (Furuba)
6) Sailor Moon
8) The Catcher in the Rye
9) American Dad
10) The Bad Girls Club (I know... I'm ashamed)
There are plenty more things that I love. Follow me, message me, reblog me, like me, whatever. I love discussing common interests and meeting new people.
...oh yeah, I love to write too.
My baby brother’s first girlfriend recently confessed to thinking they were actually a boy. I asked my brother if this bothered him. His response was:
“Well, yeah. If I had have known they were a boy when we were going out, I would have said I had a boyfriend, not a girlfriend.”
He was ten.
Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it.

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

Yes, false rape accusations happen. Run the protocol anyway. I’ve heard that perhaps the military has the highest number of ‘em. True or not, RUN THE PROTOCOL ANYWAY. Because in 15 years of investigating rape accusations, I can count those that panned out as false on one hand. Meanwhile, the one time I almost skipped the protocol, the one time I almost didn’t believe a petty officer, because I was naive as an investigator and a young woman, because her commanding officer described her as “a party girl, always late, always out drinking, don’t bother with this one”, she turned out to be the victim of one of the most brutal assaults I’ve ever investigated. She shouldn’t have still been -alive-, let alone up and making the accusation. So let me repeat: five false accounts in fifteen years. And one time I almost failed a woman ‘cause of the bullshit way it’s normal to talk about us. Take your shipmates’ word, and then run the protocol. Every. Single. Time.

And here’s one of the reasons why the “Men’s Rights movement” is hateful and bigoted.
