Fear, Food, & Feminism
Many eating disorders, mine included, begin with an obsession with health or nutrition. In recent years, a condition known as orthorexia, has become widely recognized in the medical community. People with orthorexia often adhere to strict food rules, cut out entire food groups, eat within certain time windows, or become increasingly obsessed with the idea of “clean” foods. It’s worth mentioning that “clean” foods are not real—they are a fallacy and this fact is widely agreed upon by registered dietitians, doctors, and health experts.

Opinion: I was always proud that I wasn't a "typical" girl; until I realized it was the most misogynistic thought
I was always a little different from other girls in my class. While most of them liked to talk about clothes and fashion, I wanted to talk about books and the latest gadgets. I was always a voracious reader so wanted to discuss amazing things described in them(this was the pre-internet era when we relied on books for all our knowledge). But most of the girls couldn’t share my interests.
How We, as Women, Give Away Our Power
Gwen was a working comedian when I first met her. She wasn’t famous yet, but it seemed that she was on her way there. I had never met an artist who pushed herself so hard. No matter how tired she was, she showed up at every audition and never said no to any possible opportunity. For her, that just might be the one that would launch her. When Gwen wasn’t auditioning, networking, or exercising (to keep herself camera-ready), she was writing material, making videos, and submitting them. And when she wasn’t doing that, she was waitressing and bartending to pay rent on her tiny studio apartment in a bad neighborhood.

Opinion: Why No One Noticed That Time Jim Carrey Assaulted Alicia Silverstone At An Award Show
I don’t know who needs to hear this — but kissing someone againt their will is assault. Tell your friends. Tell your sons. Tell the award show producers.

The Woman Who Invented Wi-Fi
I have always said that the Internet is one of the humans' best inventions ever created. But have you ever wondered who we have to thank for such inventions? In particular, do you know who came up with the idea of Wi-Fi? It's one thing to have Internet, but it's a different one to get wireless access.
The Woman Who Invented Monopoly
Did you spend lots of time playing Monopoly when you were a kid? I did for sure. It has always been my favourite game, and I gladly spent half of a day playing with my friends and family. In hindsight, it was a hint that I should become a banker (spoiler alert: I did).

A Brief Introduction of Feminism
Feminism originated from liberal feminism of the 18th century, based on the theory of social gender theory and social gender difference theory. Traditional feminism has gone through three stages of transition, namely, physiological differences that led to social differences, social differences that created the value relation, and then the value of the relationship that led to the concept of inequality. In the 1980s, post-modern feminism began to abandon the concept of "gender equality" of traditional feminism, emphasizing and affirming the concept of "gender differences".

Thank God for Women’s Studies!
Hello there, I’m Judson Hurd. I’m currently in my mid 30’s living in Wilmington, NC, as a musician/composer, piano teacher, and writer. Recently I came across a tweet by local UNCW professor Mike Adams, and it made me contemplate some of my academic past at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). The screenshot below is of the tweet, which says, “Don’t shut down the universities. Shut down the non-essential majors. Like Women’s Studies.”
