• To Whom it Should Concern:

    Why do people have to have so many expectations for women? 

    We are told growing up we have to look a certain way act a certain way and can’t do things men do because we are wo

    • Giselle,
      I enjoyed everything, I feel like you made really good points on all the topics you talked about. I personally agree with what you said about how women are judged based on what they wear and even act. Growing up I would always see and hear that women had to stay home and take car of the kids. I even would see girls telling other girls to dress more decent because if they didn’t they would get called names. I feel like in these times we need to help and support women and let them be who they want to be. We shouldn’t be holding women back we should be supporting them in their jobs and studies, regardless of what men and society think.

      Hello Giselle.
      Being a young woman, I have encountered most of the issues presented here. Growing up in a Latin based culture women are always judge based on what they do. My mom would always use “that’s not ladylike” and i would try to change what i was doing but never understood. Now i think it is so incredibly important to support each other not tear themselves down.

    • Giselle,
      I like what points you are bringing up in your letter. I think it is so weird how the world can skew different meanings in force people into doing things they don’t want to. Such as controlling your body there should be no rule or regulation on a person’s body because that makes us mere slave owners. And that is why we went to war so you wouldn’t govern another person’s body and doing that just takes away all of our rights and with no rights that how can we have a just society.

  • Dear, Adam
    I am intrigued by your post because wild fires are a topic not a lot of people talk about or really look into. I think people should read what you wrote because it gives a lot of information not everyone knows. One thing you said that stands out to me is “There has been state legislation to limit wildfires, although maybe not enough.”…[Read more]

  • Dear Graham:
    I am intrigued by your post and agree that plastic should be kept out of the ocean. I think there could be an alternative for plastic and it should be made and used more.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out is “There have been a number of bans recently on these plastics and in particular plastic bottles. ” I think they should…[Read more]

  • Dear Noa:
    I agree that police brutality is a very big issue in many places and it is very sad knowing black teens have to worry about a police stopping them for no reason and possibly killing them. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “A 2019 article in the Los Angeles Times stated that getting killed by police was the leading cause of…[Read more]

  • Dear Carter:
    I am liking what you said in your post “Is Music Good or Bad While You Study?” because I agree that listening to music can help to focus more and be more relaxed.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Listening to music can also help with reducing test anxiety.” I think teachers should allow students to listen to music…[Read more]

  • Dear Timothy,
    I agree that people who have these issues should be able to use marijuana for their conditions if they feel it helps. I think there shouldn’t be a synthetic version because its a plant and can keep being grown so why make a synthetic version. I think it can have some bad depending on the person because people say it is a gateway…[Read more]
