The pro-lifers are at it again. At least once a year, Project Truth, an anti-abortion organization advocating against Planned Parenthood comes to Los Medanos College, bringing with them extremely graphic 20 ft. posters of aborted fetuses and poorly written literature. Last week, they appeared on campus, to...

I like to tell people I’ve been a Beyoncé Enthusiast since the age of five. Destiny’s Child’s “Writings on the Wall” is the first album I remember completely indulging myself in. But it wasn’t until I was 13 that I truly understood how much of an impact Beyoncé had on my life. Her music came...

“Pride goeth before destruction,” says the Good Book. “And an haughty spirit before a fall.” Bill Maher might not believe in the holy texts, but it has some good lines. Maher made headlines last week when he decided to have right-wing “provocateur” Milo Yiannopoulos on “Real Time.” Maher and t...

The music industry has always catered to white audiences over culturally relevant art. One of the most notable examples of this came about when the Grammys Ceremony aired last Saturday and graced us with criminally unsatisfying results once again, particularly in the categories in which hip-hop or R&...

All eyes were on Lady Gaga this Sunday as she took the stage after a Super Bowl first half dominated by the Falcons. Though few were expecting a political manifesto from the singer, the absence of any direct political message was disheartening. Gaga, with her passionate LGBTQ fanbase, opened her set...

Include others in your feminism

Diversity without inclusivity is useless.          By definition feminism is the equality of genders, but at times it feels as though people forget about the importance of being intersectional. Feminism should work to help all affected by the patriarchy,...

I woke up the morning of January 20 to the inauguration ceremony of the 45th president of this country. It was not that I had planned on watching the ceremony, but I had fallen asleep the night before with the television on, and awoke to the inauguration of now-President Trump. It sounds strange...

America as a nation has become very materialistic, although people don’t realize it. For example, whenever a new iPhone is released, everyone seems to suddenly need a new phone. When iPhones are announced for release, everyone puts in their preorders and it’s sold out by the weekend. More often...

One of my biggest accomplishments was deciding to continue my academic journey at the young age of 30. It was an internal struggle I dealt with for some time. Everything changed one day when I came to realize that age was only a number. My age did not define my capacities, or my willpower to return to...

President Donald Trump’s aversion to people darker than white has been both heavily chronicled and criticized for the 18 months prior to his entering the Oval Office as the most powerful person in the world. However, in just his first twelve days of becoming president, he’s signed a number of executive...

As you flip through the channels on your television, your show gets interrupted by some model in a lab coat holding a cream. You hear, "You're ugly, flawed and no one likes you. Cover up your nonexistent imperfections by buying our miracle product." We're constantly manipulated to buy this cream because...
