Because why should we let women have all the fun? A new satirical commentary on the “reproductive habits of the men of the state” may seem like a great political stunt and way to grab attention towards the degradation and humiliation women feel on a regular basis about having their bodies up for debate in a public forum, but I believe this video is so much more.
Forgive and forget. That is what we are taught to do from a very young age.
It’s supposed to be what is best for us. Once you forgive someone, you do your best to forget what they have done so that you can get on with your life. But sometimes, this advice appears to not be prudent or wise—especially when it comes to relationships. Sometimes, you really shouldn’t forget.
When singer Chris Brown first came on the scene, he was a very promising young talent. With his boyish features, incredible aptitude for performing, and pop-friendly radio hits, some were hailing him as the next “big thing.”
Then, as we all can recall, he physically assaulted Rihanna after the Grammy awards in 2009. After the incident, Brown’s skyrocketing career took a temporary nose dive.
We’ve all been there. Head over heels (sometimes literally) excited to meet someone new that we just KNOW is THE ONE. We tell all our friends that “this one is different”. He’s special. He’s sexy. He’s a bad ass. He’s, well, kind of an asshole. But, that’s okay, we tell ourselves. His jerky side is kind of endearing and the sex is good and it’s nice to have someone to text all day long. Ah, yes, this relationship is pure bliss.
In the days and weeks to come, we’ll probably learn what caused the death of singer Whitney Houston. Given her long, tumultuous relationship with drugs, many people have already reached their own conclusions.
Whitney Houston is certainly not the first female pop star to lose her battle with drug addiction, if that is what killed her. Within the past year, other women with unmistakable talent and amazing voices have died; Amy Winehouse at the young age of 27, and Etta James at age 73.
Recently, Newsweek ran a story about former U.S. Senator, and Catholic enthusiast, Rick Santorum, and his wife’s sordid sexual past. That’s right. You read that correctly. Not only does Santorum’s wife have a sexual past...but it’s a pretty scandalous one at that. Well, for the 80s.
Rick Santorum has been extremely outspoken about his stance on women’s rights over bodily autonomy. He is pro-life and proud of it. His wife, Karen, is also a staunch pro-lifer and mother to their seven children, all of which are home schooled. Santorum often refers to his wife’s book, Letters to Gabriel, which is the story of their tragic 1997 miscarriage on the campaign trail. This couple is fiercely protective of the right to life, opposing birth control (hence the seven kids) as well as abortion, regardless if the woman was raped.
I have cracked. I have been broken. I have crumbled under the temptation.
Judge me. I understand. After all, it’s evident that I have a problem. I am, in fact, writing once more, despite promising myself that I would never again tread down this road, about a Miss Kimberly Kardashian. And as I walk this path, cold and alone, tripping over broken road signs entirely composed out of fake nails and self-indulgence, I wonder how I could have fallen this far once again.
