FIVE REASONS MASTURBATING IS AN ORGASMIC IDEA

What better way could there be to “Learn to Love Ourselves” than by learning about masturbation? We have some great subthemes for this month’s topic, but there wasn’t one that called to me as much as this one. I feel like healthy sexuality is something that we miss out on in our society. After all,…

Black Lives Matter (to me)

Yesterday, I was Tweeting about the death of Alton Sterling, the black man wrestled to the ground and shot at point blank range by two police officers…murdering him in front of a video taping bystander. Yesterday, I chatted with my older sister and listened to her, upset and fearful.  You see, my sister has three…

My Ramadan Experience (Part Two)

Let’s talk about what happened at the Iftar! When I arrived there were a number of other community visitors on their way into the Mosque.  I walked up to the door and a young man was there to greet me.  I went in and was shown to an area where people were gathering. I met…

My Ramadan Experience (Part 1)

I was on Facebook this week when an organization that I follow, UniteCloud, posted an invitation from the Islamic Center of St. Cloud.  The invitation was inviting St. Cloud community members to come and share in a Ramadan celebration.  It was also a chance for the Muslim community to share with us.  There is a…

#1SentenceADay

As a writer it’s often hard to “find the time”to write.  I think we often feel as though we need a two hour time frame to sit down and really write, otherwise it’s a waste of time.  I know I have felt this way many times.  I feel the need to write EVERYTHING down at…

For the Love of Hamilton

There’s this little musical obsession going around, and I am completely caught up in it.  The musical is Hamilton. The hip-hop musical written by Lin Manuel Miranda following the life of Alexander Hamilton. This amazing musical has been taking America by storm; winning a Pulitzer Prize in 2016 for Drama, a Grammy award for Best…

Video Game Obsession: Ark Survival Evolved

If you are a video game player, you have probably heard of the newest video game obsession; Ark Survival Evolved.  This little game pulls together almost everything that gamers love.  Survival, building mechanics, and dinosaurs.  That’s right…DINOSAURS RAWR!!! I’ve been obsessed with this game almost since its release; it’s pretty fucking fun!  The character creation…

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

We all say things that we don’t mean sometimes.  Sometimes that even means saying something that you realize later is not nearly as near to equality as you think you are.  What do we do when that happens?  Should we ignore it and pretend it didn’t happen?  Should we be embarrassed by it?  No, I…

Re-found Obsessions….Books for Fun!

Since I started college in the spring of 2014 my days have been filled with textbooks.  Not that I have a problem with textbooks, but unfortunately the amount of reading that I get in each day is filled with theory instead of the joy of losing myself in a story. But, last weekend (October 8th…

Guess what?!? No politician is the ONLY problem.

I hate it when people talk about a politician as though they are the “problem” with our current situation.  Do people really not realize that one person cannot make that much change, and that it is years and years of misuse of funds that contributes to the situation that we are faced with today? I…

This post appears on http://www.collectivefeminism.wordpress.com The blog site for the SCSU Women’s Center. I am an intern for the center, as part of the social media team. I have a confession to make; I have been obsessed with the hair on my body for as long as I can remember. I never considered myself a…
