WoMen Rights

With conflicts between the rights of genders sparking up more controversy then ever, the question pops up on equality.  If one right is changed, a problem arises for another; an endless reaction.  Perhaps there can never be equality due to instinctual greed and power of human kind.  Although we’ve made great strides as a nation with government, international and economical issues, we still lack the compassion and open-mindedness of a fair society.

How come my friends and I don’t do this kinda shit?  Cause we could.  We should.  Fuck.

Over the past decade a certain topic has been questioned and exploited by society, companies, even government.  What is sexy?  Is it the eyeliner that make your eyes pop?  Is it that certain lace push up bra that costs $80?  No, it has to be that perfume you put on.  Maybe it’s the color or cut of your hair.  No, it must be the pricey designer label clothes.  With all the glitz and glamour developed over the decade, our society has forgotten the natural sexiness in brains, personality, and of course a good sense of humor.
            First thing to take into consideration is the evolution of attraction from early ages to the present.  It was documented that women with weight were highly desired in society.  Influences of this were wealth, lifestyle, and reputation.  Over the years, fashion has played a major role in the sexualization of women.  It wasn’t long before a skinny frame was the new ultimate desire in society, but it didn’t stop there.  Less clothes became acceptable.  More make-up become appropriate.  Suddenly the beautifully twisted side of sexuality reared it’s head.
            With posters of half naked swimsuit models hanging from 12-year-olds bedroom walls and rap slur invading the air waves, women sexuality has transformed into a possession instead of a valued treasure.  Desexualization has become a normal trait in society; people calling each other vulgar terms like bitch, slut, whore, gold digger, etc.  If a man is promiscuous he is respected for it by his peers, yet women are torn apart by slander.  The truly sad part about all of it is we’ve allowed this to happen.
            This is society now.  The beautiful side of it offers education, love, and adventure.  Yet the dark sting of society waits eagerly to tear into each other like crazed cannibals.  The real question is what will society do within the next decade?

Highway 16

            Ever heard of The Highway of Tears?  A 720-kilometer highway stretch between Prince George and Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.  What makes this highway special is the mysterious history of disappearances and murders involving hitchhikers and prostitutes.  Over 50 missing people and climbing, the forgotten faces of British Columbia remain silent for years.  In 2006, Metis filmmaker Christine Welsh released a documentary shedding light onto the situation and granting a voice to the forgotten.  The documentary touches on the negligence displayed by local police due to such topics as racism and social class, along with the stress dealt on the families effected by The Highway of Tears.  Overall the documentary is emotionally riveting and spotlights prejudices and intolerance within our society.

I’m going to college. I don’t care if it ruins my career. I’d rather be smart then a movie star.
