The Help

For entertainment purposes this movie was incredible but the issues that are present in this movie brought me to tears. One scene in particularly that affected me was the one where Abblien has the child repeat a mantra aloud after the child’s mother scolded her for an innocent mistake. I know what it is like to feel like your mother disapproves of you because of your appearance. I cried because those mothers really exist and my heart broke for those children that don’t have someone there to comfort and let them know that I quote “I is smart, I is kind, and I is important!” Everyone needs to hear that.

A day without Fem

I had a love hate relationship with this article. On one hand I was intriged which compelled me to read on, but on the other hand I was like oh my goodness how can all this unjustice towards women really have happened. There was so many statements that left me appalled for instance a women could get expelled from school if she and I quote “Got herself pregnant”. The last time I checked we aren’t able to get ourselves pregnant; we aren’t asexual.
