  • Tess,
    This is really interesting and I didn’t know there was a study on this pattern. The language we use with children always amazed me, but I never realized how deep-rooted the ideas of fundamental gender differences were. The fact that fathers elicit different reactions based on the expressions on their sons and daughters faces really threw me…Read More

    • Hey Jacqueline,
      This is a very well written piece and it is an interesting topic. Language barriers are often a nuisance to deal with, but it is amazing to see how influential language is on a person’s culture. Language is a way to get in touch with who we are as a people, and you brought this up when you said that certain languages have specific words that just aren’t used in other cultures because it is not something that all cultures focus on or even acknowledge. I am glad I came across your article because it is a well posed question and got me to think about why some cultures have words for situations or emotions that others do not. I found your article to be very intriguing and hope you continue writing.

    Clerra,
    Really enjoyed reading this. I can tell that you care about this a lot and you should because it is something that affects all people of this country and others. Ashton Kutcher did a speech on this problem (https://youtu.be/HUmfsvegMRo) and it really made me rethink what I thought about this issue. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest…Read More

    Ellie,
    So glad to hear you are aware and updated on the movement. This is an important time in the timeline of feminism. I don’t think I’m trying to hard to be optimistic when I say I think there is plenty of reason to believe in this movement. Big celebrities and the average people are all discussing these events, and conversation is what is…Read More
