Carrying On: Angry Liberal Feminist Killjoy

Carrying On: Angry Liberal Feminist Killjoy

I wear my opinions on my sleeve, literally. Fashion can be a useful way of expressing one’s personality, but my clothes spell things out. I am a frequent wearer of T-shirts with clever sayings on them, some innocuous and some overtly political. “Angry liberal feminist killjoy.” “Cats against catcalls.” “Keep Earth clean, it’s not Uranus.”…

You are most likely to encounter the New York City bitch during rush hour. Lifted chin, overall polished and professional appearance, determined gaze, assertive posture, eyes staring straight forward. This bitch will shove you out of the way for a place in a packed subway car. This bitch is used to having to assert herself…

“Adjusting” Perceptions of Chiropractic

“Adjusting” Perceptions of Chiropractic

By:

I am constantly amazed by the body’s natural, inborn healing ability. It’s incredible to think about all the functions our bodies perform without us even realizing it. I grew up with a deep respect for the human body. My dad is a chiropractor, and from him I received regular chiropractic treatment (adjustments) and learned about…

“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.” When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell silenced Senator Elizabeth Warren on the Senate floor, echoes reverberated to the ears of millions of women and girls across America who are already all too used to hearing the same thing from colleagues, coworkers, fellow students, and…

Women and men of all ages and ethnic backgrounds wearing pink hats with pointed, ear-like appendages on either side carried signs emblazoned with clever slogans: “There is no Planet B,” “Grab ‘em by the patriarchy,” “Let’s talk about the elephant in the womb,” and “I’ve seen smarter cabinets at Ikea.” Celebrities gave speeches. Marchers took…

We sat in silence with our eyes closed for half an hour, contemplating the people who motivate and inspire us. Those in attendance could share their thoughts periodically, but there was no pressure to speak. It was 8 p.m. on a Tuesday night, and I was at a Quaker meeting in the John Main Center….

It has become clear as the 2016 presidential campaign has progressed that there has been a  resurgence of racial tensions on college campuses and a backlash against a culture of so-called “political correctness.” Since the beginning of the fall semester, racist incidents on college campuses across the country have spiked, and it’s only October. Racist…

Mine is blue. My neighbor’s is lavender, one sparkle shy of a Bedazzler. They match our outfits; they fit in perfectly. I’m talking about our cans of pepper spray. Designed to fit seamlessly into purses and bags, the little tubes look innocuous, effectively disguising the truth of their contents. Our mothers sent us to college…
