Despite the stigma around being “undecided,” I believe that a lot of people are very unsure or insecure about their major choice or their undecided status.

The ease with which this vast number of male Senators was able to denounce Ford’s emotional account despite it being narrated directly to them is indicative of a deeper issue when it comes to the way a vast number of men (especially men in power) confront sexual assault in the United States.

Between sterilizing mass movements and corroding our political energy, voting is a necrotizing infection that renders our comatose body politic septic.

It’s time to move on from what’s traditionally “cool” to what’s livable.

The survivor’s fears of not being believed or, worse, being blamed for the trauma they endured are overwhelmingly common and overwhelmingly devastating feelings experienced after sexual assault.

I like Joe as much as the next guy, but he’s simply not what this country needs rights now — he is a man who hasn’t realized his moment has passed.

If you’re dealing with something extreme in the sense of anxiety or depression, keeping a diary can help catalogue your feelings and emotions in a more coherent way.

I want to use my column to show everyone that their problems are valid and that it’s okay to laugh, cry, and scream.

It’s hard to get into an Ivy League school. And statistically speaking, it’s harder to get into Stanford. Students who are applying to these schools know that. So why hide the truth from them?

This approach of addressing campus issues by restricting the ability of students to choose for themselves is patronizing, especially when students were largely left out of the decision-making process.
