Unless you've been living under a rock, for the past few months everybody has been wondering if Kylie Jenner is pregnant or not. Quite honestly, don't think I go a day without seeing something about it on social media. I love watching the Kardashians just as much as everyone else, but sometimes things involving them get so blown out of proportion for no good reason. Because everybody is so focused on entertainment news, it's easy to forget what's actually happening in our world. Here are 5 current issues that are far more important than Kylie Jenner's "pregnancy":
1. Net Neutrality
Sooo the FCC is pretty much trying to take away our freedom of using the Internet. This could drastically change social media usage for us, and even simply using Google. Doesn't that scare any other millennials or college students?
2. Puerto Rico
It's been months since Hurricane Maria wiped out the Islands and Puerto Rico, yet they're still recovering. It's so bad over there that many areas will still be without power until May and hospitals are now even facing a shortage of IV bags.
3. Global Warming
The number of natural disasters that had taken place in 2017 was insane. And the fact that people still don't think climate change is happening? Even more insane.
4. Gun Control
An ongoing problem for years, gun control needs to be put into effect more than ever now. Every time you hear the news about a massacre, it's worse each time. How much more grieving is it going to take?
5. Women's Healthcare
Trump is trying to get rid of planned parenthood.Excuse me what?
